the mighty laugh, but the world's

and sink deeper and deeper in error and incomprehension.
I have been thinking over the 302 comments of the entrey
150 "to politicize our dismissal of politics". I have not
found any political direction appropriate to our mission,
because talking antipolitics is just talking politics.
It is only in a subdued style that we can tell people
about our irreverence towards politics.
In France, a rich country, "we all are going to be ruined
within ten years," says Jacques Attali. To be ruined in
money is not the worst fate. To be ruined in spirituality
is much more serious. However, there is a revival impulse
behind the loss of spirituality, while there is no such
thing as an economical growth any more. In France industry
keeps on disappearing, unimployment is worsening, there is
no future for society. I hope that extremists will never
emerge, because they think they can fix everything, but
they will only cause havoc in the end.
The leaders religious as well as political hold forth and
fidget with no efficiency. Politics is blinder and
blinder, more and more stubborn — I should say that power
whatever is very tempting; it fulfills pride and gives
itself high wages.
Let's go in an opposite direction.
Nothing is possible without a determined action. The
Revelation of Arès' plan is the action : A
cultural demodelling and the reunion of the individual
with himself through penitence. He can quit the
political, social, moral crisis by quitting sin.
He can break the social tensions by forgiving all
transgressions. He can make himself free from
all prejudices to regain real clearheadedness and freedom.
So he can spare himself a new revolution, which would
change the powers but would not get any problems solved,
and he can change the world.
Politics tries hard to go on, but its leaders cannot
understand the world anymore, are cut off from realities;
the old analytical grids have turned ineffective, because
the crisis first of all is a crisis of man, an ontological
crisis or leap forward, which science itself can't see
because science has grown practically religious. We Arès
Pilgrims have begun achieving the Creator's Design.
We are not many yet and we are still feeble and slow in
being penitent, because we live in the time
— only God lives out of the time (Rev of Arès 12/6)
—, but we are courageous and resolute enough to change
ours lives (30/11).
The Creator has chosen a time of History when change
can be successful, if it begins now. The world has
altered: it is now aware of its totality, open, mobile,
while we as individuals are still subjected to a backward,
outdated, stagnant bureaucracy, whether national or
international, religious and/or political from country to
country; it chains us to outdated reasonings and can't do
anything but put forward only law and "normality", under
which it itself is suffocating. Emil Cioran, the
French-Romanian philosopher said, "Man is an overworked
animal... Normal people leave everything as it has always
been, they content themselves with the present, settle in
it with no regrets or great expectations." Sadly, they are
our government — "I'll be a normal president," said a
candidate in 2012.
Revolutions have never come very useful. As all of the
revolutionary ideals have been despiritualized, they have
burnt themselves out and soon stopped making sense. Doubts
and rejection of others, if not of oneself, are prevailing
then. Don't ask why people now take refuge with their own
memories, social benefits and privileges; they do so
because the future looks grim. We can rub out its
It's time to draw up a new perspective. Our penitence
is making a pleasant pattern of it. It is feasible to change
everything without damage, shedding no tears, with no
misfortune, slowly but here and now.
You have to realize that mankind will end up eaten alive
by the Beast (Rev of Arès 22/14), if you fail to
leave the sociopolitical framework such as it has been so
far and to change man.
Man has to take in infinity, go back to his spiritual
adventure and need of greatness, which penitence
can meet. The Fathers sends us out to the new Field,
a field of lucky possibilities. He does more than have us
daydream, He sends us out to pure reality, undoubtedly
hard to gain but able to make us end up in the Garden
Modern life has come down to senses. They whether base or
high are just marvels temporary but fateful in the long
run. Senses whenever devoid of spirituality first enchant
and then they poison and kill finally. Gandhi circa 1889
found out spiritual life in these Bhagavad Gita verses:
"When man dwells on senses (only), they attract him; from
attraction (or passion) desire comes and from desire anger
comes, from anger error and caprices come, from error and
caprices confusion comes, from confusion madness comes and
of madness he dies (ch.2, v.62-63)" (M. K. Gandhi "My
Experiments with Truth")
The Revelation of Arès calls
this death sin of sins, it is the terminal
extinction to which leftists, rightists, centrists, all of
politicians lead us; none of them shares our concept of
