A lot of
trouble and work takes up my time and seem to dull the attention I've
paid to this blog so far.

news offer plenty of subjects.
of those subjets are not worth the great fuss made about them by
newsmen, who are just sensationalists who sound like the fairground
barkers in my childhood's days.
The economic crisis, for example.
Any sensible person that had observed the world, at all, ever since
has expected an economy based on indebtedness—and, which is worse,
indebtedness: re-re-loans of
re-loans of loans—to turn into hot air trade. It is or it would be
necessary sooner or later to restore to every thing its real price,
different from the one written in accounts and printed on tags, and to
give back the loans (1,200 billions of Euros as far as the French
government is concerned). This necessary rationalization is or would be
to cost everybody a lot, but the situation is not so
hopeless, since 4,000 billions of Euros to save the banks worldwide
have been found within the space of a month, while 20 billions of Euros
to save the starving humans have barely been found in the space of 10
In any case, it is in no man's interest to see the banks head
for disaster, just as it is in no man's interest to see his local baker
or garage owner be bankrupt because of poor management. We all need
trades, even when they are at fault, just as they need us to
survive. Whenever one of us has bought a washing machine, a car,
an apartment, on credit, he or she has been a party to
the banking system just as the state has been by borrowing 1,200
billions of Euros. As you can see, the matter is existential and
enormous, but the real existential crisis is the crisis of man.
worst is still in store, but we won't die from it.
The real economic crisis is to come, unbelievably cruel and aberrant,
when the bark eats away
its own tree,
when the roosters kill
the hens to rob from them the poor moss
left, and when therefore man has to face up to the truth, that the falcon
stands for (Rev of Arès xvi/15). Not only does the
Maker's Word forecasts it, but it
is patently obvious.
Let's be serene and strong in spirituall life then, just as Jesus
prepared us to be 2,000 years ago: A
man's life (or ha, Rev of Arès xxxix/5-11) is not
made secure by what he owns (Luke 12/15).
But man can die from the
Jesus appeared and spoke to me, in 1974, I had believed that man was
or evil, doomed to eternal damnation, and could not be saved but by the
holy mercy, that religion claims to be authorized to secure for him in
return for his faithfulness to the creeds, the religious laws and
some denominations) the sacraments.
Ever since 1974 The
Revelation of Arès has every day shouted me from this
error and to the direct opposite, and I have talked people out of this
error and into the direct opposite, that is, I have taught that any
human, whether a
believer or an unbeliever, can be saved but only by himself or herself
and merely and in any event by applying love,
which The Revelation of
Arès encompasses in one active word: penitence.
Penitence that is
no sadness or austerity or severity, but that is joy and
festive mood (Rev of Arès 30/11).
Unfortunately, manhood is not moving towards it. Hence the necessity of

to this, the Internet has not taken on the importance and efficiency
usually and wrongly ascribed to it, because History—evolution,
therefore— is not
made of words and pictures, but it is made of facts and actions.
That's where we can find both a certainty and a lesson.
The certainty is that there's no cause for us, Arès Pilgrims—including
the eldest (Rev of Arès
the most slandered one—, to remain excessively worried
because we are blackened by denigration and fibs on the Internet or in
publications. This is just the usual scribbling, mostly anonymous, of
racism, prejudice, counter-propaganda, pettiness, sometimes hatred, in
short, of pathetic

themselves for their stitched tongues (Rev of Arès xii/3)

poeple, whose only mistake is, just as the minstrel used to sing, that
they displease "ordinary people" who "hate anybody that takes a path
different from theirs" ("La Mauvaise Réputation", in English "Bad
Reputation", Georges Brassens).

are given is that we absolutely have to emerge from the words, from
which the disparagers cannot emerge, at all, and we have to develop

I regret the loneliness which keeps me from seeking and performing

this blog encourage my brothers to switch from words to actions,
because words, leaflets, posters, well-dressed windows, present the
public with ideas, but never save anybody. Actions like penitence
