Brutal Inquisition: Dark Ages
Witches, Midwives, and Nurses: A History of Women Healers by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English details the horrors of the Inquisition from which we have still not recovered. The Inquisition was not only an assault on people (especially women), but on knowledge, the intuitive Right Brain, freedom, the rule of law, and common humanity.
The Inquisition is rarely mentioned, but it continues to have a very profound effect on the West today. John Trudell, former head of the American Indian Movement, poet, and activist explained that Columbus and the "conquistadores" who followed him were so brutal because many Europeans had lost their humanity during the hundreds of years of the Inquisition. They had forgotten what it means to be human.
The Inquisition was designed to block the European Renaissance which was sparked by the discovery of The Hermetica, the ancient wisdom of the Egyptian god Thoth. We need a new Renaissance today to fully recover that powerful knowledge! It is the knowledge of Enlightenment. Western culture is the only major civilization for which Enlightenment is not the goal!
Witches, Midwives, and Nurses, first published in 1973, is an essential book about the corruption of the medical establishment and its historic roots in witch hunters.
In this new edition, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English build on their classic exposé on the demonization of women healers and the political and economic monopolization of medicine.”
New Renaissance Needed Today
The Catholic Church put the Knights Templar, who had built the great Gothic Cathedrals of Europe, to death in 1307. The date was Friday, the 13th -- a date we all know to be frightening even today without remembering exactly why. The Church slaughtered thousands of Cathars of France -- Christians who had retained some of the forbidden Egyptian teachings.
The article Inquisition Against the Cathars of the Languedoc says: “The activities of the Medieval Inquisition were so terrible that the memory of them has survived throughout Europe to the present day. Some Christians acknowledge that this body was one of the most sinister that the world has ever known, and now attribute its work to satanic forces.”
So, the bloodbath began in Europe and was only later extended to the Americas, Africa, and the rest of the world. It returned to Europe in WWI and WWII. The abuse of power continues with the endless War on Terror that is bankrupting America and destroying the Middle East. So, the whole world still needs to recover from the centuries of extreme physical, emotional, mental, and psychological abuse of power.
We need a new model of the constructive use of power. To recover those models and change the world for the better, we have to recognize the abuse of power which has ruled the world for 500 years, codified in colonialism and neo-colonialism.
Ubuntu: Reconciliation: Ma'at Principles
Where will we find that model? Michael Tellinger is the author of Ubuntu Contributionism, However, Ubuntu was introduced to the Western world first by Archibishop Desmond Tutu who explains that there can be no Ubuntu without Reconciliation. Ubuntu is an economic model based on cooperation rather than competition.
Dr. Muata Ashby explains in his book Ancient Egyptian Economics that Egypt was kept prosperous and stable because it was founded on The Principles of Ma'at.
