Oh this guy
John Holmes Motherfucker
He gets a little carried away with the the rhetoric, and I'll admit that I was ignorant of the deadly nature of cold drinks. But I enjoyed the video more than I expected. It was certainly better than sitting through yet another condescending tea partier, or yet another smart alecky kid making with all the pretentious and pointless jump cuts. I don't agree with everything he said, and I suppose that makes him an agent of bullshit, like practically everybody else in the world.

He lectured us on the dangers of smoking and drinking and drinking soda... That's pretty easy to do. The bullshit came from his yogic posture and the spiritual dazzling music, which is to somehow inform us that his words are holier than, say, a PSA from the health department. Read a bit about him; he's an embezzling, labor law violating, gay hating, bigoted fraud.

John already said he was like most other people in the world; making your last statement wholly redundant.

Most other people in the world aren't defrauding people and perpetuating ignorance that how you position your body can cure AIDS, being gay, or cancer.

Except for a lot of Chiropractors, I suppose, so they can fuck off as well.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Well, I enjoyed the music, and i enjoyed the postures. I found his gestures to be soothing. I guess that's what I'm saying. But that doesn't make him someone with interesting ideas, whom i want to hear more from. I already knew cigarettes were bad.

The floating swastikas are an interesting design choice.

Long before Hitler came along these things were being flown peacefully by Tibetans and lots of other Asian cultures. Not sure how the Nazis got a hold of it, but it was sure unfortunate.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Ever hear of the Canadian artist who called himself ManWoman, and who campaigned to take back the swastika from the Nazis? I just found out that he died in November.

The Nazi's were basically into every form of weird, esoteric occultism you could fucking think of. A huge influence on the core beginnings of Nazism (the Thule society) were the writings of Helena Blavatsky (who is sort of like a female Alistair Crowley with less opium and sex). Blavatsky was huge into Indo-Aryan culture, but interpreted it in a very strange way, mixing it with all sorts of other mysticism and general new-age woo (though New Age beliefs hadn't really solidified back in her day). Anyway, Blavatsky wrote at length about how the Earth was originally settled by a powerful, superior race of Atlantean/ancient alien types known as the Aryans (misusing the term) who were white, but then through the deterioration of their culture they began turning into different races who then, after race mixing, became unpure, darker colored, and no longer truly Aryan or pure. Her writings were borderline racist (essentially implying that non-white races were ungodly and horrible), but the Thule Society, being very inspired by them since they were racist shitheads, took it all a few steps further and interpreted it to mean "Hey, we're white and angry about everything, so that must mean WE'RE pure Aryans and true Atlanteans, so I guess this means we're supposed to clean up the Earth of awful mud people! Cool!" So this is why the Swastika (which actually originates as a symbol of the life cycle in Theravedic Buddhism) wound up as a symbol of a bunch of proto-Tea Party types who were so fucked up they could barely even get along with each other.

A friend of mine in high school was related to one of the core founders of the Theosophical Society, and everyone in his family was a member. His grandmother wrote a book about reading auras, and she was also German... I don't know if she saw the dirty Jew pink haze that tends to radiate around me or not, or if this effected her overall opinion of me.

Anyway, he worked at the TS's book shop, located in their library on Broadway, in Seattle. If you're ever in the area, check it out. It has the complete works of Blavatsky, and thousands of other works of mysticism, some mainstream (Gnostic Jungianism, Freud, The Bible), and some very, very bizarre and obscure. As I recall there were dozens of dense tomes, all written by Blavatsky. I don't think it's fair to pigeon-hole her into proto-Nazi philosophy, since she wrote extensively about religion and philosophy from many different cultures, the Cabalistic tradition being one of them.

"The Society is a philanthropic and scientific body for the propagation of the idea of brotherhood on practical instead of theoretical lines. The Fellows may be Christians or Mussulmen, Jews or Parsees, Buddhists or Brahmins, Spiritualists or Materialists, it does not matter; but every member must be either a philanthropist, or a scholar, a searcher into Aryan and other old literature, or a psychic student. In short, he has to help, if he can, in the carrying out of at least one of the objects of the programme." - Blavatsky. This is quite a difference from your Cult of Thule.

The Theosophical Society tried to raise and train a Messiah to go forth and teach the earth an ultimate transcendent spirituality. Jiddu Krishnamurti, the Indian child so adopted and raised rebelled against it and instead went around the world teaching basic concentration and meditation while also teaching that spirituality is bullshit, even benign ones like Buddhism. Some of the Theosophical Society writings, like their annotated Theosophicized Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, are pretty great reads.

This guy in this video hyar could be taken down by Deepak Chopra.

Oh yeah, and do an image search for "Coca Cola Swastika."

I'd like to blitzkrieg the world a Coke.
