A title like MIGHT IS RIGHT almost precludes the necessity of an introduction, since all history, natural law and common sense declare its truth. The "author" of . It is might against might, remember, by land and sea, man against man, overthrow of popularized “right and wrong” concepts, that they know from bitter. 'Might Is Right', or 'The Survival of the Fittest', is a book by pseudonymous author Ragnar Redbeard. It is considered to either advocate social.
A splendid spider web it has proved itself. They who claim Mastership upon any other basis than Conquest are Upstarts, Usurpers and ought therefore to be deposed without pity, and without mercy in accordance with the cosmic decree of ethnic displacement. The hieroglyphics and records of ancient tombs and monuments. Christ is your refuge and the Holy Ghost. Did you ever see medical students extract the brain of a frog and then fill up the vacuum with pith? Make yourself a terror to your adversary. Christ your Shepherd.
Boastful of their physical strength, they demand respect and fear from others. Taking no heed of Heaven, Earth, demigods, or the Sun and the Moon, they disdain to do any good.
So they are difficult to train and convert. Holding themselves in high esteem, they demand their own way.
Arrogant and afraid of nothing, they always assume a haughty attitude. But demigods keep record of their evils. Perhaps there was some meritorious act in their past lives, and they can count on the effect of that small amount of good. But, since they commit evil again in this life, their stock of merit is soon exhausted; good divinities forsake them, leaving them alone and with no one on whom to depend.
When their lives end, all their evil recoils upon them and forces them, through the natural working of karma, to descend to the evil realms. Again, as the exact record of their deeds in the hands of the demigods dictates, their karmic transgressions and offenses condemn them to hellish realm.
Retribution for evil comes about naturally and nothing can stop it. They must go into the red-hot cauldrons, where their bodies are melted down with the utmost torment and anguish. Even if at that time they repent of their evil deeds, what good will that do?
The Way of Heaven takes its inevitable course without mistake. Hence, there is no such thing as success coming from brutality. Strength, Beauty, Wealth, Power and happiness all come from the good karma created by acts of charity and virtue while misery, weakness and suffering is born out of the sort of behavior Ragner advocates. When one understands the laws of karma, one can appreciate why the meek are blessed, for they do not create evil karma and even if they are abused in this life by the legal system, criminality, lies or oppression, that is simply their bad karma from past lives materializing.
However, since they are virtuous in this life, that bit of abuse they suffer today can actually be eons worth of karmic retribution being reduced to just one life of suffering due to their current forbearance and good volition. Such people, even if they die, will be reborn in states of pleasure, for as the Infinite Life Sutra states: This is the fourth great good. Caesar's assassination and Napoleon's defeat and exile. Lastly, if one has done wrong but wishes to do good from now on, a good way to start would be by teaching the Shurangama Sutra to others, for the merits of doing so are according to the Buddha: There might be another person who had personally committed the Four Major Offenses and the Ten Parajikas so that, in an instant, he would have to pass through the Avichi Hells in this world and other worlds, until he had passed through all the Relentless Hells in the ten directions without exception.
And yet, if he could explain this Dharma-door for even just the space of a thought to those in the Dharma-ending Age who have not yet studied it, his obstacles from offenses would be eradicated in response to that thought, and all the hells where he was to undergo suffering would become lands of peace and bliss. The blessings he would obtain would surpass those of the person previously mentioned by hundreds of thousands of millions of billions of times, indeed by so many times that no calculations or analogies could express it.
Ananda, if living beings are able to recite this Sutra and uphold this mantra, I could not describe in endless kalpas how great the advantages will be. Rely on the teaching I have spoken. Cultivate in accord with it, and you will directly realize Bodhi without encountering demonic karma. Shurangama Sutra: The website also has ebooks and Dharma talks that can be downloaded. So if you can, you should visit one near you and there will usually be free classes and Dharma books and materials available for your benefit.
Also, below is the link to the online Dharma learning channels of the Ven. Master Chin Kung Channel Links: William Tell who levied toll upon opulent Hebrews for patriotic purposes. He was really an armed insurgent leader. For two thousand years these effeminate superlatives have been trumpeted to the remotest corner of every Christian land.
O ye Politicians. Their sting is deadlier than the bite of a cobra. Those black-hearted. When the Church triumphed the Dark Ages began. True heroes shall be born again as of old. They were preached by bare-foot monks at the inauguration of the Dark Ages.
Curses be upon ye. Presidential candidates. Nothing that is unnatural can last for long. The Universal Church is no more; all we see of it now is jealous remnants. And the Universal State, the Social Democracy, the Economic Republic, the Brotherhood of Man, should they take practical form, are pre-ordained to similar failure. All they could do, would be to postpone the operation of the survival of the fittest — drugging nations in temporary sedatives.
No matter how eagerly madmen may try to do it, there is no known process whereby they can jump out of their own skins. Shrieking sentimentalism is indeed a feeble lever wherewith to overturn the immutable order of the Universe. It cannot do it. Not if it were whooped till the crack of doom! Not even if it had a Lamb of God in every city, ready to be butchered each Friday afternoon in order to make a Christian Holiday.
You may trace Equality in letters of silver on tablets of burnished gold, but without engineering a perpetual miracle, you cannot make it — true. You may write Fraternity in blazing diamonds on walls of enduring granite, but without reversing the mechanism of the Universe, you cannot make it a fact. Can you build up a marble palace with mud and slime, O!
Can you raise up a conqueror from the dunghill, or make the stupid great? Can you manufacture heroes out of hogs, O! We can! Thereupon, toward you, O! They, one and all, point the finger of pride!
Towards you! Where the politicians rage and the people imagine vain things! And the dogs in the alleys are — baying at the moon! Then, turn I away! And I brush against a slave in copper- riveted overalls, hurrying to his mill; and against another in gold chain and silken hat, hasting to his money-changing — and a lean woman in sordid rags, with a pile of lumber balanced upon her crown; and a splendid harlot in diamonds and brilliant plumage, rideth slowly by.
And the cattle in the slaughter yard are lowing for their hay; and a draught mare, with galled shoulder, lieth swollen and dead on the frozen paving blocks. How nauseous it all is?
O, how loathsome? Stead he cannot escape from the draconic ordinances that despotically. Altruism, meek and lowly self-abnegation, upon any extended scale is among predatory organisms and all organisms are predatory impossible of practice on pain of wholesale felo-de-se. Every man is under an obligation to fight and bear his own burden. If he cannot do so, others cannot do his fighting or his burden-bearing and their own at the same time with reasonable safety to themselves.
He, therefore, who finds it impossible to carry his own burden, had better sink down and die in his tracks than impose an additional load upon the shoulders of his kind-hearted fellow strugglers. For then, they would be overloaded and consequently unable to fight successfully; so all might perish together. Practical fraternal sympathy upon any universal scale has always had in the end a most destructive effect upon the internal structure of communities.
Indeed, all must perish ignominiously if that foolish idea prevails. They are straining themselves to death by endeavoring to carry an impossible load. The majority of men are born far too weak constitutionally for their conditions; and the few who do possess the necessary stamina and grit, will have quite enough to do in proving by deeds their fitness to survive, propagate and possess.
Many are projected — few are selected. The battle of life would then be so grim. Property is necessary to the complete and free development of personality.
What a sublime Ideal? How heroic? The bliss of a sheep! How superlatively delightful? How divinely glorious? And a Jew as the Good Shepherd. His fleecy flocks have been fattening themselves up with commendable diligence — for the shearing-shed and the butchersblock.
It will be laid under tribute — it will become a province. Let any man abandon all property. It will be taxed and looted in a thousand different ways. On the other hand they must obey all Law implicitly no matter how it originated and be sure above everything to order themselves lowly and reverently before executive officers of the Law even if in doing so. To be property-less and unarmed is the condition of actual dependence and servitude.
Liberty without Property is a myth. Unarmed citizens are always enslaved citizens. All good citizens however are hereby warned and solemnly advised. I call them — castrates.
It is time men who can think began to emancipate themselves. To be independent is synonymous with proprietorship. Let us curse the Devil then and obey — the Law. Liberty is honestly definable. There are numerous worthy. Liberty in the conventional sense is a miserable Lie. Let it be disproved by any one creditable example to the contrary.
Neither did he do anything that had not previously been better done. During the whole course of human history. This offer is strictly bona-fide and shall remain open till India and Assyria. Should some or all of said Mutual Admiration Society maniac-geniuses go blind. That is to say — the Sword in the hands of the Strongest. Spellbinders and Mahatmas.
This statement is made with cool deliberation and aforethought. The Golden Rule is not only a snare and tangle. And even supposing that he did, wherein is the positive advantage? What is gained by restoring vitality to the decomposing corpse of an animal that may be so easily duplicated — an animal that is a positive nuisance, numerically. Are there not plenty of animalcula on earth, without dragging them out of tombs? Especially are there not plenty of leprous Asiatics? Death and destruction are necessary to the health of this world and, therefore, as natural and lovable as birth and life.
Only priests and born cowards moan and weep over dying. Brave men face it with approving nonchalance. Serenely Arriving! In the day, in the night; to all, to each.
Sooner or later, delicate Death. Why should a famishing multitude be fed by a god? And that too, in a land said to be flowing with milk and honey! Would not such a mob be far better dead?
From the harmonious nature of things, it is clear that men were intended to feed themselves by their own personal exertions or perish like dogs. What right have they to broadcloth and fine linen? Here, it may be suggested en-passant — is the wearing of garments, in itself, a natural and necessary condition of adult existence? Was it really intended that the man-animal only, should wrap itself up from birth to death in layer over layer of disease-breeding rags? Was there not a secret vital strength in the wind and rain and storms that whirled round our forefathers giant limbs and shaggy brows?
All ethnic legends tell us that our first parents were most elegantly attired in glorious sunshine and gaudy fresh air. Clothing serves most effectively to hide the abominable physical deformity of modern men and women, just as superficial educationalisms serve to hide their dwarfed minds.
If they were to perambulate around in the nude, even the street curs would bark at them out of sheer terror. What a horrible sight a crowd of free and independent electors would be, all sitting in solemn conclave, sucking their thumbs, absorbing political opiates and divine euthanasia?
Just think of it! Even Carlyle the dyspeptic would faint at the sight. The very conception of such a saddening horror makes one ill. It would be as if they all had just emerged from a tomb — a tomb of wool and cotton and leather. Physical distortion and mental malformation are the direct result of two thousand years of bad-breeding: No people can long retain hardihood and independence, whose minds become submissive to a False Ideal.
Blessed are the Powerful for they shall be reverenced among men — Cursed are the Feeble for they shall be blotted out. Blessed are the Bold for they shall be masters of the world — Cursed are the Humble for they shall be trodden under hoofs.
Blessed are the Victorious for victory is the basis of Right — Cursed are the Vanquished for they shall be vassals for ever. Blessed are the battle-blooded, Beauty shall smile upon them — Cursed are the Poor-in-Spirit, they shall be spat upon.
Blessed are the Audacious for they have imbibed true wisdom — Cursed are the Obedient for they shall breed Creeplings. Blessed are the iron-handed, the unfit shall flee before them — Cursed are the haters of battle, subjugation is their portion. Blessed are the Death defiant, their days shall be long in the land — Cursed are the feeble brained, for they shall perish amidst plenty.
Blessed are the destroyers of false hope, they are the true Messiahs — Cursed are the God-adorers, they shall be shorn sheep. Blessed are the Valiant for they shall obtain great treasure — Cursed are the believers in Good and Evil for they are frightened by shadows. Blessed is the man whose foot is swift to serve his friend, he is a friend indeed — Cursed are the organizers of Charities, they are propagators of plagues.
Blessed are the Wise and Brave, for in the Struggle they shall win — Cursed are the unfit for they shall be righteously exterminated. Blessed are they destroyers of Idols for they shall be feared by tyrants — Cursed are the famous Wiselings.
Christ your Shepherd. If foemen smite you on one cheek. Lambs of God! Thrice cursed are the Vile for they shall serve and suffer.
Sublime — as suits the occasion. Contrast this with an orthodox Sermonette. Dearly Beloved Brethren!!! Gawd answers all who kneel and pray. Blessed are the Unmerciful.
Blessed are the mighty-minded for they shall ride the whirl-winds — Cursed are they who teach Lies for Truth. If Hebrews fleece and flay your hide. Christ is your refuge and the Holy Ghost. Toil on!
In this vale of tears sing. Hell roast your souls for ever and aye. If elected persons invade your wealth. Always think your own thought. Then dare to rend the chains that bind And to yourself be true. And every law that man has made And all the golden rules. And Jew Messiahs. A dying God upon a cross Is reason gone insane. Dare to liberate your mind. From all things. How can they be for you? To make an Idol of a book. Learn to use your own brain And boldly stand erect. All other thoughts reject.
Is poison for the brain. Beware of all the Holy books And all the creeds and schools. Americans habitually scream themselves hoarse over its sounding generalities: Every 4th of July.
And what are the American People but the flies that have been cleverly entangled in its gossamer meshes? What are the grandiose paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.
As for the American People of to-day: Although the great majority of them are mental and physical dwindling. These sorrowful creatures. Is not that the work of lunatics?
The smashed and splintered the wooden political yoke of an English king and then proceeded to rivet around their necks a brand new yoke of bolted steel. It consists of a patchwork of plagiarized catchwords. Indeed the mock-heroic preamble of this rhetorical pronunciamento is but a cunningly constructed piece of blague. Cursed indeed are the harnessed ones! Cursed are they even though their harness be home made — even though it tinkle musically with silver bells — aye!
O reader! Are not these things the outward and visible sign of organic dementia? The Declaration of Independence has less real meaning for present conditions than a bottled-up Indian war-whoop of the same period would have.
Its ethical and most of its political conclusions are shams. All that is brave. To all contemporary demagogues. It is a back-number.
Every national appeal is now made. Why then should sane men continue giving lip-service to the subtle deception? Why should they. Indeed it has always been considered a piece of amusing mockery by those who really understood the secret intent for which it was originally constructed: This cunning plot worked like a charm.
After mature consideration they determined to lull and lure the armed peasantry back again into a condition of blissful somnolence.
The first and by far the most honorable method is through an irresistible and highly-trained standing army. The second and cheaper method is. Henry and all the vested material interests that stood a solid phalanx behind those voluble patriots cast about for some safer method of ruling the minds of the uninformed but extremely valorous yeomanry. The latter plan has ever proved itself most effective because Aryan populations that would fight to the last gasp against undisguised military despotism may be induced to passively submit to any indignity or extortion.
North America was far too wide. At the period of the War of Independence. The State is a blackmail agency. Enterprises necessitating state-permits and large preliminary expenditures of capitol cannot be safely undertaken until elective satraps Aldermen.
Personal liberty is very nearly unknown except in the newspaper and any citizen who dares to think in direct opposition to the dogma of the Majority does so at the risk of his life. He who would assert himself in this Republic. Americans have voted solidly for increasing the despotic authority of their elective rulers and task-masters. The old systems of Jurisprudence and Government founded on naked force were cleverly retained. At every general election. Grand Vizers heaven bless them not only plunder living generations.
By accepting the gold of Public Plunderers he makes himself an Ishmaelite. Should he be a poor man. The Executive who sells his people into bondage is a Public Enemy. They borrow thousands of millions upon National Credits from the Usurers. Such a Scoundrel and Traitor has no rights that property holding Freeman are bound to respect: Their schemes of financial legerdemain are of unparalleled brilliance and grandeur. Those thievish official peculators of Turkey. Our national heroworship badly wants reconstruction.
Americans have yet to learn that each generation must fight out its own good fight. Some of these days they may possibly wake up when too late and discover with alarm and astonishment that all their mock iambics have been of no avail against the insidious growth of centralized Oligarchic Herbariums.
That document considered as a whole. Occasionally they do descend into the streets. Americans have been hustled into a convict-prison of laboriousness to piratical masters a thousand times more terrible and more unyielding than any history can describe. Our Federal government may be very appropriately compared to a pirate ship cleverly disguised as a friendly armed cruiser convoying a fleet of peaceful merchantmen loaded with an immense treasure and A splendid spider web it has proved itself.
Their toils and their tangles set. So wide was woven the net.
Well fashioned. All that is now left of Liberty is its name. A few minutes more and it is roasted alive. No man of balanced sense can honestly believe that these problems are to be settled by ballot box stuffing of editorialism.
There is no other Power in the land that can effectively hold it in check. The Czar of Russia possesses less actual authority than our Federal Government. Their position is that of a worm trying to escape from its hole in a heated burning log. With a standing army in the hollow of its hand. Today all the old sphinx questions are up again for solution.
Possessing neither the strength. Most Americans are only now beginning to perceive these things. The War of Secession or rather the war for the annihilation of self-government demonstrated conclusively that a Centralized Authority. The nation is intersected in all directions with iron highroads and splendid waterways. All other theories are chimeras — lies — delusions — make-believe and of no account. Figures of speech.
How can citizens be honestly described as free and equal who not. What is viler than a government of slaves and usurious Jews? What is grander than a government of the Noblest and the Best — who have proved their Fitness on the plains of Death? The chief point is this: The Philosophy of Power has slumbered long. They who declare otherwise are blind. How can they be even considered men. The survival of the Fittest — the Toughest is the logic of events and of all time.
It is no apology whatever to affirm that the people themselves enact all laws they are commanded to obey. Rotten also in their heart. No doubt those old documents served their purpose at the time. Why should agreements made by coffined dead men. We are ruled. As for the Common Law. Even that statement is a falsity and if it were true. Their bones have long ago mouldered into ozone and fertilizers. Magna Carta. Equally rotten are their irrational and infantile philosophies.
Rotten are the brains that concocted them and the fingers that signed them and sealed them. The Constitution. No doubt our ancestors were somewhat rude in their manners. Equality before the Law is all we mean. Each again. Even if all tribunals of Justice were founded upon blind Impartiality and administered free of cost. No two men are born alike. They accepted their position pro-tem.
Let us see! Each one has his own peculiar idiosyncrasies. No legalism has even been devised that Strength can not drive its coach and four through. Assassins and avengers! If that be so. All judges are authorized avengers. Upon this earth there is no such thing as Equal Justice. And it is a popular proverb in all lands that somehow. These words are not spoken in disparagement. Robbery under arms. Whether they are the Fittest or not. If they prepare in time. Sooner or later.
All legal tribunals are based. Should the Opulents be conquered and pillaged. To be respected and secure. How then can the robbers and the robbed — the eagle and the pigeon — the chicken and the hawk be placed in positions of genuine equilibrium before removable officials. This is a truism. Aristocracies must rest themselves upon a Sworded Might. It is reasonable therefore for a confederation of masterful bandits to place themselves in positions of absolute equality.
Congresses and Parliaments are merely committees of rapacious taxgatherers. Indeed all Law is now and ever has been. It is true only in the subjective sense.
Drum-head court martials are really Law Courts in embryo. Precedents and Constitutions. The idea is absurd on the face of it.
Brigandage necessitates inequality: No government on earth rests on the consent of the governed. Equality before the Law. The Equality superstition is tolerated by clear-seeing men. It assists them to govern the thoughts: Among the higher vertebrates this is especially so.
Even the great epics of antiquity are all glorifications of inequality: Can equality of body.
From the soles of his feet to the crown of his head — the bones. No two germs. Every animate being is different in osseous structure and chemical composition. Mentally and morally. Similar language may be applied to the Chinaman. Though unable to reason out in logical sequence their inherent abhorrence of social and racial equality.
Vile indeed are the inhabitants of those noxious cattle kraals: The points of nonresemblance may be superficially imperceiveable. His narrow cranial development. Notwithstanding the dexterous writers of strategic fables. What white father for example.
Are there five? Is there one who would not rather see the daughter of his loins. You have only to look at some men. Take the Negro for example. Aristocracy by birth rests upon an unalterable scientific basis of heredity and selection. Should that one exist he being of sound mind let him speak. Then and only then. New York. New Orleans: Franklin who had a comic vein.
Savonarola perished trying to establish it in Florence. By the way every signature. The hieroglyphics and records of ancient tombs and monuments. Milton defended it in his prose essays. John Ball. Inequality of birth and condition. Who can fill the valleys up and lay the mountains low? Zeno said: Jack Cade. Was he not a slave-driver residing among slavedrivers who bought and auctioned human cattle for dollars and cents all the days of his life? No doubt for purposes of state-craft and necessary war-craft he wove his philosophic preamble of Strong Deceit.
Probably also. All the colonies traded in niggers. Robespierre and Christ were also failures — ghastly failures. When Jefferson dictated his fatal and untenable abstractions.
No one can study the laborers on a farm. Business minds thoroughly understand. They even display an extraordinary low average of animality. Their movements are contracted. The ideal type of manhood or womanhood. Their bodies are out of all proportion. Their heads are to a large extent unsymmetrical.
Heated rooms. Every new generation is feebler. When compared with the traditional idea of Strength. In actual life. Look upon their shrunken cheeks.
Born thralls are they — or. Men who labor hard and continuously have no power to think. For them there is no escape — No! It is this supplanting of the ideal of what is right by the ideal of what is beautiful, i.
It is fearful to think of what would befall humanity were such art to spread among the masses of the people.
And it already begins to spread. Parker wrote: However, he concluded that "it is sustained by a crude vigor that at its most coherent can help to clear away not a few of the religious, moral and political superstitions bequeathed to us by our ancestors.
Though it is no longer included in current printings of The Satanic Bible , early printings included an extensive dedication to various people whom LaVey recognized as influences, including Ragnar Redbeard.
