Of house elves and children’s tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing.
J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter, year 7, 709.
If I were to rule the world, I would decree that all men should end their days with the wisdom of a philosopher, and the innocence of a child… if, indeed, they should have to end their days at all; for, perhaps I have found “the scorcerer’s stone”; that is, a fountain of youth.
However, not all men have the capacity to reach the first goal: they do not have the power to comprehend the unforgiving nature of cause and effect, the intricacies of ethics, the timelessness of principles; nor do they have the boundless curiosity of a child. No, I think a better goal would be to become more useful with each passing year, and to do so with the attitude and innocence of a child.
So, I seem to be dividing the world in two: the old and the young; the experienced and those without. And, what is proper behavior for each? J. K. gives gentle reminders, “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live”; (Year 1, 214) and, ‘Age forgets its duty when it fails to remember the confusion of youth.’ (Year 5, 826; slightly modified) Sometimes age leads by example; sometimes, by works of fiction; and, in both cases, they must be based on facts of reality; for, fictions with no basis in reality are merely dreams.
Now, how did I come to these conclusions? I think I owe it all to Aurelia, my daughter, and, of course, J. K. Rowling, the author of… well, you know who she is.
Several years ago, about 1995, it was my turn to spend a day with my daughter (8 years old at the time). At the end of the day, I returned her to mom’s house. While I talked with mom, Aurelia disappeared and returned with a small book in her hand. She handed it to me, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I took it, without a word between us; and, a few minutes later, left.
Several days later, after my day with Aurelia, I returned her and the book to mom’s house.
As we walked to the front door, Aurelia asked, “Did you like the book?” I reflected a few seconds, and answered, with a little bit of emphasis, “Yes.”
We entered the house; I began a chat with mom; Aurelia disappeared with the book. She returned several minutes later with a stack of 3 books in her hands – years two, three and four; and with an unusually intense expression on her face. She, apparently, got the full meaning of my response. I had seen it before – that expression, and knew something significant was happening. I took the books and, without another word to mom, walked briskly to my car. I don’t think I ran; that would have over done it, a bit.
Since then I’ve experienced a second, third, fourth (and counting) childhood – each marked by a reading of the complete set of Harry Potter books and a viewing of related videos.
Many people make the mistake of assuming that Harry Potter is a child’s story. It is not. It is an adult theme disguised as a child’s story. The theme is based on the lonely struggle that children must endure – almost none overcome – man’s ages-old practice to brutalize his children – a very gentle way to phrase it.
This theme of man’s story is also carefully concealed from those who might think to study history. I found it almost by accident.
Edward Gibbon reports, in his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, that taxes were so oppressive under the Emperor Constantine that the incidence of exposure was so alarming he felt something ought to be done about it. You see, it has been the custom among our ancestors that, when they were unable to support a newborn child, they would take this child into an open field and expose it to the elements, thereby saving it the troubles of an unbearable life. It would take the cold and rain, the sun and wind several days to silence its screams; sometimes dogs or wolves would mercifully shorten its sufferings. Constantine set up a bureaucracy to deal with this problem; but you know the voracious appetite of bureaucrats for booty; they only worsened a problem they had been tasked to alleviate.
Gibbon also reported that in his day, about the year 1770, that upwards of three thousand infants were exposed on the streets of Peking every year. Will Durant reported that a similar number (about the same year) were exposed on the streets of Paris each year; and, across the channel, another 2000 were exposed on the streets of London. Peking, Paris, London, these were three tiny dots on this globe occupied by human beings. How many more were exposed each year in the countryside, in villages of each kingdom… 50,000… 200,000? Remember, these are annual numbers or estimates… and almost totally untold by those who pretend to tell us man’s story. And they have been annual tragedies all over the globe… and in all those years that lie behind us.
These tidbits of history are barely the tip of a very large iceberg; I have more to say about it in my article, One Part in Ten Thousand.
The practice of brutalizing children is so pleasing to most men that they even established a religion based on this practice. In the Old Testament, Moses, thru several ordeals, was having trouble and many doubts about embracing commandments of the god invented by Babylonian/Hebrew priests. But, when these priests – er, their god – promised to visit sins of fathers onto his children to the third and fourth generations, Moses “made haste to bow his head toward the earth, and worshiped” this demon that most people think a god. (Exodus, xx, 5-6) Moses then beseeched the demon to “pardon our iniquity[ies] and our sin[s], and take us for thy Inheritance”. Thus began the demonic-blessed saga of the “chosen ones”. Exodus, xxxiv, 8-9.
These demonic priests promised congregants they could eat their children to only the third and fourth generations because central banking had not yet been invented. With its invention, they are now able to cannibalize following generations to the end of time. Don’t take my word for it; a former comptroller of the United States corroborates my observation.
In the first citation, “sins and iniquities” of fathers were promised to be visited onto children of “those who hate me.” But, in the second citation, Moses wants to visit his sins and iniquities on his own, or someone else’s, children. So, we don’t need any babble about, “Oh, but we don’t mean to do it to our children”.
This commandment is found in the book of Exodus, part of the Torah, also known as the “Law of Moses”. There, it is repeatedly declared that it is to be “an everlasting covenant.” (Gen, xvii, 5-13) There are many other places in the “Law of Moses” that describe knick-knacks and feasts, ceremonies and dances, chants and costumes, charms, taboos and sin offerings that symbolize the covenant of Moses, identify its parties and confirm its vitality.
These statutes are to be observed “forever thru-out your generations.” This qualification is repeated so often that, to make a complete list of them, would be a most tedious job; here is a partial listing: Gen, xvii, 5-13; Ex, xxiii, 21; xxviii, 43; xxix, 28, 42; xxx, 10, 21, 31; xxxi, 16; Lev, xxiii, 14, 21, 31, 41; xxiv, 3, 8, 9; Deut, xviii, 5.
Owing to these seemingly endless repetitions of promises of perpetual booty, we can draw the conclusion that being thick-skulled and possessing a demonic ethics are compatible attributes.
And, J. K. seems to be aware of the totalitarian nature of Judaism. Her story is a conflict between good and evil; characterized by Harry Potter on one side, and Tom Riddle on the other. She has Riddle assume the name, Voldemort; a name that translates to “people, or nation, of death”:
the German “volk” translates to “folk” or “nation”;
“de” translates to “of”;
“mort”, translates to the Latin “death”.
Thus, in the character of Voldemort, a “nation of death” is represented. A gentle sobriquet for a nation that has perpetrated genocides and general plunders continuously for, at least, 4,000 years. (Exodus #23)
She enlarges on this representation by a large snake (a leviathan) that accompanies Voldemort most everywhere he goes. This “nation of death”, in real life, is ruled by its priest class, which goes by the name, the “tribe of snakes”; or, rather, “tribe of Levites”. You see, “Levy” (the family name of Moses and Aaron) derives from the Hebrew, “snake”, or “long jointed monster’; or “a large political state run by a totalitarian bureaucracy and the machinery of coercion”; a very apt description of a ‘nation” that perpetrates genocides and general plunders. Webster Library of Universal Knowledge.
She completes the representation of this “nation of death” in the character of Voldemort by having him, in year seven, declare for a temporary “peace” during a siege of the castle where he has gone to kill Harry.
There must be no more war. Anyone who continues to resist, man, woman or child, will be slaughtered, as will every member of their family. Come out of the castle now, kneel before me, and you shall be spared. Your parents and children, your brothers and sisters will live and be forgiven, and you will join me in the new world we shall build together. (Quoted from video of Year 7, part 2; which is slightly expanded from the book, Year 7, 729)
In the book of Deuteronomy, the Judeo-Bolshevik god declares rules by which his “chosen ones” shall deal with neighbors:
When you draw near to a city to fight against it, offer terms of peace to it. And if its answer to you is peace and it opens to you, then all the people who are found in it shall do forced labor for you and shall serve you. But if it makes no peace with you, but makes war against you, then you shall besiege it; and when the Lord your God gives it into your hand[,]… you shall save alive nothing that breathes, but you shall utterly destroy them… (Deut, xx, 10-18)
“Peace” equals “no more war”; “kneel before me” is the act of a slave who must do “forced labor”; everything “that breathes” includes every “man, woman of child”.
Is it possible for Voldemort to be a more complete representation of this “nation of death”?
It is advisable, thus, when dealing with one who subscribes to the Law of Moses, to require a sensible definition for the word “peace” when it falls from his lips, or pen.
Now, let us talk of life, achievement… things that matter… Harry Potter. Here is a story that stands alone in the world of literature – at least the literature that matters; not the literature that idealizes life in garbage cans.
J. K. has depicted life as it really is and captured an audience like none before her. She introduces to children facts of life they are not supposed to know: such as the fact that governments (such as the Ministry of Magic) are collecting institutions for criminals and useful idiots; that such governments perpetrate crimes and then seek to employ well-respected citizens as poster children to mask such crimes, and persuade ordinary peasants to “tolerate” them for another decade. She illustrates how public schools aim to disarm students relative to criminal and useful-idiot classes; how a criminal-infected media slams and silences proponents of liberty, while it lionizes perpetrators of evil.
She even shows how parents seek to over protect their children so they will be little prepared for life beyond the nursery.
And then there is that most-painful of sub themes: the stumbling and awkward steps of teenagers as they seek to discover rules by which boy and girl try to companion with one another… rules that are still hidden from view.
Ah, one more example: after the Ministry of Magic (the government, as non-magical people would know it) has installed a tyrannical teacher at the school to suppress any knowledge of Voldemort and to prevent students from defending themselves against him, J. K. presents to us a most unusual development: students taking matters (the law) into their own hands. She does an admirable job; but she stops too soon; she seems to be unaware of English history when parliaments took down judges and bishops, kings and governors who thot they had a divine right to violate with impunity.
There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a 12 foot mountain troll is one of them. (Year one, 179)
A major theme thru-out the story is the importance of friendship. I believe it was first declared by Aristotle,
In tyrannies friendship and justice hardly exist, in democracies they exist more fully. Hence, to establish a tyranny, we must destroy the bonds of friendship; to establish a free society, we must nurture them.
N. E., VIII, 11, 1161a, 30.
And J. K. seems to be very much aware of his lesson; for, there are many scenes in the story that depict this importance from several perspectives. Dumbledore (headmaster at the school of magic), for example, constantly encourages Harry to share his defeats, wins and discoveries with his best friends, Hermione and Ron.
Another example: Harry, Hermione and Ron befriend Luna Lovegood, who, while being unusually perceptive, also has a reputation of being a bit loony. In year seven, Harry, Hermione and Ron visit Luna’s home to speak with her dad. She isn’t home. During the visit, Harry wanders into her bedroom and saw his, Hermione’s and Ron’s names had been written in large red letters across Luna’s walls. On closer examination he noticed that each letter was composed of the word, “friends” written repeatedly in smaller type.
As the day dies with tears in our eyes/ There’s too few hellos, too many goodbyes…
Where are We Going From Here, Blackmore’s Night
The scene was included in an early version of the video for year seven; but was omitted in a later version: a major disappointment.
I guess it was thot unwise to display too many of J. K.’s medals; or her “political officers” were reluctant to highlight the basis of a free society.
We learn early in the story that Voldemort attempted to kill Harry as a one-year-old baby because of a prophecy that declared that “while one lives the other cannot survive”; a theme derived from the holiday (Passover) celebrated by the “nation of death” which commemorates the slaughter of a million first-borns of “non-chosen ones”. Harry has to survive several attempts on his life by Voldemort. In the meantime, there are numerous obstacles that Harry, Hermione and Ron have to overcome, and mysteries they have to unravel. It is an arduous, dangerous and lonely struggle, just as it is in real life.
Many people dismiss Harry Potter as a child’s story or because it is a story about witches, wizards and magic, which seems to make it a child’s – and, therefore, a pointless – story.
For thousands of years, book writing has been a very dangerous profession. Two and three thousand years ago, to claim authorship of a document was equivalent to issuing one’s own death sentence. Two hundred and fifty years ago, French Encyclopedists thot Catholicism so tyrannical that it should be destroyed. But they couldn’t publicly criticize the Church for fear of their lives. Instead, they wrote scathing articles attacking Islamic atrocities identical to Catholic atrocities. Since official policy of the Church was anti-Islamic, it couldn’t very well persecute Encyclopedists for exposing Islamic barbarisms – even tho they were identical to Catholic ones.
In other words, for thousands of years tyrants have employed “watchers” or “political officers” at the publishing gate to block and suppress any expression that might disclose too many questions or too many crimes of tyrants. Today they are known as censors.
I believe that J. K. used magic, wizards and witches as a literary device to sneak by censors and to appeal to children. What censor could have read the first year and imagined that J. K.’s story would blossom into epic proportions and represent the “nation of death” so devastatingly? And, who could even come close to the size of her reading audience? To make the best seller list requires annual sales of 50,000 copies. The first printing of J. K.’s year five was 8,000,000 copies – and sold out in a day. J. K. cleverly navigated the waters of suppression and, in the meantime, assembled an unprecedented audience. She is probably without peer in these regards.
Have you any idea how much tyrants fear the people they oppress? (Year 6, 510 (see also, year 5, 93-4))
We watch main characters of the story grow and mature from approximately 11 years of age to 17-18; both the fictional characters, and the real-life characters: Daniel Radclife, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. Thru their fictional struggle they are cast into the category that was formerly occupied by early America… a beacon to all men of broken spirits who previously struggled hopelessly under the yoke of tyranny. Just as America animated adults all over the globe to reach for new levels of freedom. so Harry, Hermione and Ron will animate children all over the globe. And, Voldemort – or, the “nation of death” – knows very well the threat this beacon poses to them. If they do not neutralize or exterminate it, they face a historical slave uprising that usually results in wild and indiscriminate slaughter of anything and everyone remotely associated with the “nation of death”, regardless of guilt or innocence, age, condition or sex.
It seems their favored method of neutralizing dissenters is corruption by directing dissenters to corrupt activities: alcohol, drugs, promiscuous sex, pornography et cetera; or by using them in other movies that promote a sense of life opposite that of J. K.’s, among other methods.
An example that demonstrates how this corruption proceeds is provided by Amira Willighagen, a nine years old girl who appeared on “Belgium’s got Talent”, and stunned her judges with a performance of O Mio Bambino Caro, a very difficult piece. She also stunned them when they learned she was self-taught (you really must watch it).
Her next performance was a real professional job; and speaks loudly of Judeo-Bolshevik influence. This “nation of death” has completely dominated cultural activities (music, stage, literature) in Europe for centuries, at least. (On this topic (Judeo-Bolshevik influence in Europe, and elsewhere), see chapter 24.2 of Victims; if you can’t access its link, I can send you a Word Document by e-mail: all 174 pages of it.) In this performance, Amira is dolled up with a dress that bares her chest and shoulders and stops midway between her hips and knees. And she is placed on a pedestal 5-8 feet tall so pedophiles can get a good look up her dress.
They even use the child to sell sex toys: one of my views of her videos began with a 17-second ad by “Victoria’s Secret”.
J. K. herself must be neutralized and made to disappear from pages of history. This is done by surrounding her with “watchers”, or “listeners” (as French terrorists (1792-4) called them) or “political officers” (as Nazis and communists call them). These “watchers” then, tell her everything she wants to hear and, thus, guide her in a direction that transfers control of her copyrights and other property to the “nation of death”; after this “nation of death” feels it has complete control of her copyrights, it will arrange her demise, take possession of her copyrights, and drive her achievements to extinction.
She will, I fear, suffer the same fate as Walt Disney. He wouldn’t let queers or communists work for his company. He died mysteriously. And, guess what? Queers and communists now control his company. Thus, he also died conveniently. And they now use Disney Company to corrupt children. For example, when my daughter reached the age of four or five, I began to take her to Disneyland. And I was disturbed by some of the themes and stories the company promoted. This was about the time that Disney produced the movie Aladdin. The movie starts with Aladdin stealing a loaf of bread and we follow him while being chased thru city streets; in another scene he frolics in a house of prostitution. I eventually read the original version of the story; and there wasn’t a trace of thievery by Aladdin and no mention at all about prostitution.
(You may think I speak too unflatteringly of queers; but, if you will examine police reports around the world, you will come to the conclusion that 70-90% of them (queers) are also pedophiles.)
Why would a company controlled by queers and communists (Judeo-Bolsheviks) introduce such sleaze in a story aimed at children… but to lead them astray? The aim, related action and the witting nature of them should not be tolerated by civilized men.
This raises a troubling question: Disney has created a so-called Harry Potter World at Disneyworld in Florida; and, for this to have happened, it had to have the approval of J. K. The question… ‘Has J. K. been recruited by the Ministry of Magic… as a poster author?’
But let’s overlook this troubling development for the time being. Yes, I have complaints about her story; but, J. K. is a pioneer in the field of literature; and, in my book, pioneers are above criticism. Where they are concerned, we can suggest or question; but for all other forms of speech, we hold our tongue; lest someone ask, “What have you done?”
A little context: Will Durant reported, in his History of Civilization, that the ancient world reached apexes of development, in every category of man’s activities (literature and engineering, medicine (actually, a science of health) and law, astronomy and mathematics et cetera) during the first century of the Current Era (commonly, AD). From there, man’s struggle moved in retrograde motion until about the thirteenth or fourteenth centuries. From that turning point, it took the world another 600 years to climb back to levels of achievement not seen for 1800 years.
Most people call these lost years the Dark Age, and that they lasted a thousand years.
Influences that brought on this Dark Age did not begin during the first century CE; they began many thousands of years before that period – and reached their goal in the time span mentioned. This means that we can’t lay all blame for the Dark Age on Christianity: its co-conspirator, and principal, was a “nation of death” now known as Judeo-Bolsheviks.
Had it not been for the Dark Age, what would be man’s condition today? We could begin this investigation by comparing man’s condition as it was in America around the year 1850 with his economic and technological condition today. We choose 1850 because man’s achievement then was roughly equal to his development during the first century of the current era.
We should disregard man’s ethical condition today because there is too much evidence that this “nation of death” has dominated sleaze purveyors since time out of mind; and to compare one period of time with another would merely compare contents of one garbage can with another.
So, how do we measure man’s achievement over the last 150 years? Formerly, it took 4-6 months to travel from one coast of America to the other; today, a mere four hours. It took the same 4-6 months to send a message from coast to coast; today, less than a second.
What does this mean? If we could have rid mankind of the “nation of death” in the year 50 CE, men would have reached our level of economic and technological development by the year 200 CE.
Where would that put us today… traveling among the stars… with colonies on several planets thru-out the galaxy? And, without the corrupting influence of this “nation of death”, we could have rid the planet of wars, poverty, hunger, sleaze, slavery. The head spins with possibilities; and the heart breaks for the horrors men have suffered during the long and dark night of death.
(For purposes of the following paragraph, let us hold our judgment regarding J. K.’s alliance with Disney.)
Who can calculate the price men have paid for lack of someone who would steer them away from the rocks and to safer waters? Too few have been finders of nature’s secrets and laws; too many have been exterminated before they could contribute to man’s meager storehouse of wisdom. But a few did survive and contribute to the improvement of man’s condition. If we were to compile a list of those who contributed most significantly to the building of man’s society… those who will be read to the end of time, first on the list would be Aristotle, followed by John Locke, Ayn Rand, J. K. Rowling… and beyond, the slate is bare.

Olde Village Lantern Blackmore’s Night
The Lost Right. Why have men tolerated this “nation of death” for over 4000 years? It is because they do not know the awesome power available to them thru the ‘right of petition’; which, incidentally, is not a right nor is it singular: it is a complex of powers. But, obviously, to employ them, one must know them. Here is an introduction to the history, law and procedures of redress; and a review of the book.
Turn Back the Clock. In the first paragraph of this article (Harry Potter, and Time) I included the statement, “indeed, if [men] should have to end their lives at all.” Men have sought eternal life by an elixir, stone or whatever for ages. I regarded such pursuits as foolish, pointless, or against nature. But, recently, my biological age has grown younger each year since my 55th chronological year. I am now seventy; and former professional and college players tell me that if I played competitive ball at the level of a major college, I would “wreck” or “lead” the league (among other compliments; and they are judging only by what I do with a bat; they don’t know what I can do fielding or on base paths). Players at that level are 20 years old, plus or minus a few; and some are a season or two away from major league play. In other words, these former pro and college players are telling me that I have the physical condition of a near-professional athlete at the age of twenty. My condition is the result of a health regimen I have developed over the past 35 years. Owing to my results (constant discoveries of how to overcome the ageing process; annual reductions in my biological age), and I began to project results into the future: and I saw no reason why I should increase my biological age ever again. Have I found the so-called sorcerer’s stone? It’s really too soon to make that statement; I figure another twenty years of hitting 117 or 121 mph pitches should get me closer to an answer.
Redress for Pedophilia: If we are to have redress regarding a very long list of grievances, we need to operate on a very large stage. And to do that, we need an issue that moves large numbers of people to outrage and readily propels them to action. The kidnapping, torture and murder of children is that issue. Even convicted felons get in on the act. It seems to be general knowledge that when a child molester is placed among convicted felons, the life expectancy of the former is 2-3 days. It is also general knowledge that no one is employed by criminal and useful-idiot classes but those who are subject to blackmail; and a sizeable fraction of them are child molesters. Here is a feast handed to the dissident community on a golden platter; for dissidents could use this issue to take down almost anyone perpetrating grievances… and dissidents do nothing with this gift. It puzzles me… until I remind myself that, fully, 90% to 95% of all dissident organizations on this planet are counter-intelligence operations. The only question is, “Are they controlled by witting cointel agents, or are they just plain dumb?” It doesn’t really matter; for, a controlled dupe can wreak more damage among dissidents than a conscious agent. You can identify a cointel operation by its refusal to allow any discussion regarding historically-proven redress among themselves or followers. It seems the only place on this planet where this information is available is this website.
