Prophesy against Gog!

"Therefore, thou son of man, prophecy against Gog, and say, 'Thus saith the Lord G_d; "Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Democracy and Progressivism!"

"Of those he seemed the one who wins, not the one who loses."

"Do we not agree that happiness is good?"

Greetings, Light-Children of the Shadow Kingdom,

You have been led to our halls by G_d. It matters not the name or face you give; nor does even your belief or unbelief shake this fact. Now you are here, it would do well to get you acquainted with our way.

The Shadow Kingdom waits for the day when "the light shall pierce the darkness." You, my Light-Children, shall pierce the darkness of self-obsession and arrogance that leads the Foul'd Enemy to Progressive Ignorance masquerading as the Good (as if such miscreants had read Father Plato! Infantile!). You shall be Priests and Knights, Lords and Burghers, Craftsmen and Learned Doctors.

Over the coming weeks, we shall explore the culture and faith of the Shadow Kingdom. Our fundamental tenant comes from my Consolation:

"Only the wise can do what they want to do."

You have seen the desires of men for peace and prosperity go astray. Promises of Hope and Change preceded our Fair President and have not been fulfilled (indeed, they have been roundly perverted!) because they were the promises of fools. "The wicked follow their desires but they cannot accomplish what they want. For they do what they feel like doing, and they suppose that they will find among their pleasures the good they are really looking for."

The wise know that freedom is an infinite good that requires work to be brought into this world. Fools believe freedom is finite and can only be stolen.

It is for this reason that The Shadow Kingdom is a Kingdom and not a Republic or Democracy. Democracy is rule by fool and the greatest of all designed Republics cannot but devolve into Democracy. For further discourse on this precise subject, we defer to Brother Mencius Moldbug.

Fides Et Conscienta,
Father Boethius


  1. I don't quite get this, but my interest is piqued. Looking forward to your next post, Father Boethius.

  2. I think I can explain. Father Boethius is going to elucidate the culture of cryptosenoralism, which from what I understand can easily be considered a shadow kingdom. Most of these libertarian systems only try to be free from the state, correct me if I'm wrong, but i think Father Boethius wants to teach us to be free from ourselves. I'm also curious to see what he has to say.

  3. This makes me want to read the consolation of philosophy.

  4. Excellent post, Father Boethius. You have exceeded all expectations, and I look forward to your next post. The Baron will be contacting you soon.

  5. To My Dear Child, Plain Cartesian:

    I can see you are on the path to understanding. The State is a Dragon, but only one of many. To ensure a fundamental break from dependence upon the State we must create a family, the primordial unit of Order whose many functions were stolen and degenerated by the State. I hope you will enjoy my post entitled "The Empty Camp."
