This morning I published an article “Who Is Henry Caboodle?”. It was intended as a bit of levity, following Dee McLachlan’s heavy piece on the media yesterday. And I do mean heavy. Mine opened with a comical picture of moi, taken at the Fringe, laughing.
The First Two Parts
First, the article made an epistemological point about how the brain needs to envision a specific person as the killer at Port Arthur, not just a vague concept.
Then I mentioned Kevin Woodman’s theory about David Everett as the likely gunman. That led me to search for a law maxim about “blaming the right person.” I listed several maxims from ecclesia.org. These reminded me that it’s the person who gives the order, not the person who pulls the trigger, that’s supposed to get the main blame.
(It’s also legally correct to blame the gunner, but as I was using the example of a very mind-controlled gunner, I had to let such a person off the hook. Manchurian-candidate types are unable to act freely or rationally. Their moral compass is suppressed.)
Switched Horses Midstream (Sort Of)
Third, I then switched horses and said we are all to blame. You could say I was moving from epistemology to ontology.
Since I had called the unknown killer at Port Arthur “Henry Caboodle,” I made the sweeping statement that we are all Henry Caboodle. Not Henry Caboodles, plural, but that our society was the Port Arthur killer.
Generally I believe that if you are a part of a society you – and the others – are responsible for what it does. Sure, I realize very few Aussies planned the massacre. But I did claim that parliament’s vote for Oz’s joining the Iraq war was the fault of all of us. My rationale is that a society does many things as awhole.
Speaking personally, I draw plenty of benefits every day from Australia. I don’t plant or harvest food but I eat it. I don’t drive a car but bus drivers transport me. I am part of a system, a society. No Robinson Crusoe lifestyle for me, thank you. Therefore I should pull my weight.
It’s Not Like Maggie Said
Consider Melbourne resident John Finch, who says he is regularly tortured (as a “Targeted Individual” — look it up). He would naturally expect society to help him. You would, too, in his shoes. Humans in trouble always expect others to take some steps to assist them.
If we have forgotten that, we have really been brainwashed by Maggie Thatcher. Recall her asserting that “There is no such thing as society.”
John Finch has asked many organizations for help, such as the courts and Amnesty International, but he gets the bedbug letter every time. Come on, it’s our duty to gang up on the bullies who are doing it.
The Moffitt Position
Responding to my “Who Is Henry Caboodle” article this morning, Terry Shulze referred to the late Justice Moffitt who ran a Royal Commission in NSW. (Moffitt’s first name was, amazingly, Athol.) He wrote A Quarter to Midnight – a very telling title, no?
Moffitt’s book says that we have a far greater organized crime structure than is acknowledged. True, but even he did not know the unbelievable way in which large numbers of Australians who are psychopaths go about the deliberate business of harming many other persons.
Recently two women – Fiona Barnett in NSW and Wendy Hoffman in America – have pinned the story down. I can’t cover it here but I say again: they have pinned the story down.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are at a major turning point in history. For centuries there have been a bunch of utter Bozos going at the human race in many very well-concealed ways. It was frequently rumored that they want to do evil. I used to think, when I heard that, that it was an embarrassingly silly theory. But I was wrong. The whole affair is now OUT IN THE OPEN.
Evil Is As Evil Does — and It Does!
Evil is the name of the game. Oh, serendipity! It’s 5pm in Adelaide and a commenter named “56” has just posted this under my earlier Henry Caboodle article:
“Only we the 99% can stop this psychotic insanity. Everything created on this earthly paradise is good. The only thing the 1% know is how to blow it up.”
My reply was:
“Yes, earth is Paradise. Yes, psychos are ruining it. And not even by accident or as a symptom of greed, but as THEIR PLAN. Jayzus! We gotta stop this from continuing.”
So, thanks to 56, I now blurt out these basic themes:
- Life, the biosphere, is beautiful.
- Some persons who are looney-tunes to the nth degree are actually set on wrecking our habitat.
- What other option do intelligent humans have but to beat the bloody brains out of those guys?
So please allow me to modify, and strengthen, my “Who Is Henry Caboodle?” argument.
Structure of Social Relations
Humans live in societies. Thanks to evolved traits, all members of our species have to get resources, have to compete, or do whatever they must for survival.
This has always resulted in some malice and cruelty, but often the larger group finds ways to counteract the most predatory individuals. Anger is often a sufficient tool to use.
During my generation’s lifetime, the situation changed. It became hard to make “the justice system” work. This is because words were adhered to — the justice people pretended to be doing their normal job — but many were answering to SECRET forces.
We couldn’t quite ken what was going on. We didn’t imagine that many persons would relish cruelty for cruelty’s sake – rather then cruelty as a means to some selfish end.
Thousands of powerful people were trained from childhood to carry out “Lucifer’s” wishes. They think evil is good. No wonder we have fracking and dumbing down and all those other man-made disasters.
If you read Wendy Hoffman’s intricate books: Enslaved Queen, and White Witch, you will learn how a child can be twisted – and yet her “front personality” will look normal and not raise any alarms. I can now understand what this is all about.
Giving Evil the Big, Fat Flick
Let’s shortcut everyone’s education about all this. It changes the picture. Until now it was hard to be angry with, or disrespectful of, members of government, science, or religion. We naturally defer to leaders. But it is urgent to ask them “What the hell are you doing?” (Gumshoe’s bailwick!)
They need locking up, the lot of them. Every officer of any public post needs to be made to answer questions. If there is nothing wrong, they should be glad to placate us by providing the information we seek, right?
One more thing about the Henry Caboodle factor. I hadn’t meant (this morning) that the term would encompass solidarity. But Commenter 56’s wording about “we the 99%” has reminded me that that we are a very powerful we.
Here is my revision of the earlier article. I now say: Henry Caboodle did the Port Arthur massacre because Henry Caboodle (Australian society) had within it – and still has within it until we clean it up – some folks who were bent on that sort of thing.
(Yes, some hands-on persons at Port Arthur may have been under the tutelage of non-Australians, but that is beside the point. If the hands-on person is Australian he must be held accountable to this society.)
I conclude for now by saying it is quite a relief to learn that there really is an organized group, operating in the shadows, whose behavior and beliefs completely fly in the face of normal human values. Watch the Fiona Barnett Youtube videos for a start.
The new joy is that with this knowledge we can attack the wrongdoers, (the evil-worshippers) wholeheartedly — in the name of society.
