Being someone who does not do God I tend to the view that The Sermon On The Mount was not a real historical event, but a fiction made up by Saul Of Tarsus, the Zionist reject who having failed his exams for God’s chosen peoples’ highest ecclesiatical order, threw a hissy fit and invented his ownn cult, Christiaity and its own
profit generator prophet, Jesus.
Blessed are the meek my arse, here on planet reality the mek get spat upon, shat upon and ratted on to quote that other prophet, Paul Simon.
Don’t write off The sermon on the mount entirely however, it does offer us some insights into the human condition. And the parody of it in Monty Python’s Life Of Brian contains the nearest thing to a universal truth we have. When the people at the back who are struggling to hear are getting the ‘Blesseds’ relayed by chinese whispers, blessed are the peacemakers becomes “Blessed are the cheese makers.”
Blessed are the cheesmakers – from The Life Of Brian
Why is this a universal truth?
Because forget the moon landing, the steam engine, the Oxford English Dictionary, The Pyramids, The Temple Of Diana at Ephesus, the complete works of Shakespeare and all that dreck, by far the biggest step humanity took on the road to civilization was the invention of cheese.
Though the food fascists might have a down on it because it is too tasty, too nourishing and too natural, cheese is one of the great props upon which western civilisation is built. If that was not true why are people doing things like this.
Cheese Smuggler Caught With Half a Ton As Sanctions Hit Basic Foodstuffs
While Putin, Obama the EU’s seven dwarfs play geopolitical chess over Ukraine, Syria, oil, the reserve currency and the Grexit, ordinary people suffer, and are reduced to smuggling basic foodstuffs like European cheese into Russia and ordinary natural gas in vast quantities into Germany.
A Russian cheddar-runner (doesn’t sound as romantic as rum-runner or boootlegger I know) was apprehended by Russian border guards as he attempted to cross the border between EU member Poland and the Kaliningrad enclave yesterday with 460kg of European cheese in the boot of his car, thus breaking US led sanctions. The Guardian reports that the man claimed he was not smuggling for commercial purposes, but was a fan of European cheese. It’s strictly for personal use he told customs officials, claiming that he was aware of the law but hoped he would not be searched.
Russia instituted wide-ranging bans on the import of European-made foodstuffs into Russia in a bid to harm EU agribusiness in retaliation for sanctions imposed by the USA and EU on the Russian economy last year. The cheese business has been one of the most visible sectors affected by the ban. Large amounts of cheese specifically for the Russian market were laid down for ageing months and years before the ban. That cheese is now reaching maturity but stockholders can find no market outside Russia for it.
Russian cheese makers have even tried to imitate popular European cheeses instead, with varying degrees of success.
Why Assad is Winning: Victory For Secular Ruler In Syria Will Transform the Middle East.
While mainstream media continue to spin the Washington lie that US sponsored rebels are about to topple the Assad regime in Syria (the story they have been telling us for three years, an examination of the news feeds that mainstream news publisher and broadcasters use, which are free from Washington’s propaganda spin reveal a different story.
