The Coordinator of the Owe Aku International Justice Project, Kent Lebsock (Lakota), recently addressed the Occupy Wall Street protesters who are protesting against corporate greed and other injustices and said: “Corporate greed is the driving factor for the global oppression and suffering of Indigenous populations. It is the driving factor for the conquest and continued suffering for the Indigenous peoples on this continent.”
Many Indigenous peoples and their supporters seek the formal revocation of the 1493 papal bull Inter Caetera which was a Vatican command to Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the “new world”. This degree sought to establish domination world-wide and called for subjugation of non-Christian peoples and upon Christian discovery gave ultimate dominion over their lands.
An estimated 100 million Indigenous people were eradicated during the genocidal process of Europe’s Christian colonization of the western hemisphere.
Occupy Denver recently endorsed the Colorado AIM-initiated indigenous proposal. Colorado AIM is calling on Occupy Denver to adopt, as a starting point, the following:
The first request: “To repudiate the Doctrine of Christian Discovery, to endorse the repeal of the papal bull Inter Caetera (1493) to work for the reversal of the U.S. Supreme Court case of Johnson v. McIntosh (1823), and call for a repeal of the Columbus Day holiday as a Colorado and United States holiday.”
Also, Indigenous leaders recently presented a proposal
to the Occupy Wall Street General Assembly, wherein they request that Occupy Wall Street repudiate the Doctrine of Christian Discovery, endorse the repeal of the papal bull Inter Caetera, call for a repeal of the Columbus Day holiday, and work for the reversal of the Johnson v. McIntoch case.
U.S. Chief Justice John Marshall based the Johnson v. McIntosh ruling upon, in part, the papal bull Inter Caetera. In the case he said that the discovery of “heathens” by Christian people gave the Christians “ultimate dominion” over the “discovered Indian”. This decision has never been overturned and remains the legal foundation for all American government dealings with the Indian/Indigenous populations.
Indigenous leaders are saying: “Inter Caetera is the foundation of the international system we live under today and directly related to the corporate-state-military occupation and rape of Mother Earth.” Indigenous leaders are asking Occupy Wall Street to include as a demand that we consider an American-Western, and global strategy for dealing with our current path to planetary destruction.
The United Nations is currently working on a global strategy for dealing with our current path to planetary destruction. I recommend Occupy Wall Street to adopt a particular group of influential UN leaders’ already established global strategy.
Influential leaders of the United Nations are on a mission to achieve world peace and ecological balance by uniting the worlds religions into a One World Religion based on syncretism and the Gaia Hypothesis… and by also establishing a One World Government based on (1.) the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation, and (2.) the new imperatives of global security cooperation associated with preventing warfare.
Robert Muller (1923-2010) was the Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and called the “Prophet of Hope”. Muller said: “We must move as quickly as possible to a one-world government; a one-world religion; under a one-world leader.”
Alice Bailey (1880-1949) was the world-renowned, anti-Christian New Age prophetess who started World Goodwill – an official non-governmental organization within the United Nations. One of its aims is: “To cooperate in the work of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ.” This aim-statement is not referring to the traditional Christian concept of who Christ is, but rather the New Age Cosmic Christ (a person living on earth today) who New Agers believe will soon appear (reveal his messianic identity) and unite all religions and countries as well as establish lasting world peace and environmental security. In this new world order, corporate greed and other injustices would be eliminated.
Moving toward a one world government: During the opening ceremony of the UN Earth Summit, Maurice Strong, a very influential UN leader, gave a speech wherein he said: “The concept of national sovereignty has been an immutable, indeed sacred, principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation. It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states, however powerful. The global community must be assured of environmental security.”
Moving toward a one world religion: Muller said: “Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. Gerald Barney, a leader of the UN Global Ethic Initiative, said: “Five billion of us humans must prepare to die to 20th century ways of thinking and being…Every person must think like earth, to act like earth, to be earth.”
Archbishop Javier Lozano Barragan, the president of a Pontifical Council, called the global ethic movement an “eco-religion”. He said it manifests itself “as a new spirituality that supplants all religions, because the latter have been unable to preserve the ecosystem.”
Vatican Radio said the popular film Avatar “cleverly winks at all those pseudo-doctrines that turn ecology into the religion of the millennium”.
Ecology as the intended, one world religion stems from the “Gaia Hypothesis”, which James Lovelock, a world renowned scientist and futurist, offered as a paradigm shift to the Western world’s mechanistic (nature-as-machine) world view. In this paradigm shift, the Earth, which has been given the adopted Greek name Gaia, is believed to be a living organism with a self regulating consciousness. The opening ceremony of the UN Earth Summit was centered around a Viking long-ship named Gaia. Gaia was the primordial Earth-goddess in ancient Greek religion; the great mother of all.
United Nations leaders who are New Age Gaians are working to establish a One World Religion based on syncretism and the Gaia Hypothesis. Their religion is, primarily, a syncretistic blend of Hinduism and Native America religions. The Hindus worship God and honor, as well as pray to their Earth-goddess, who is the Earth. Also, many Native Americans honor Mother Earth and worship the Great Spirit.
This type of syncretistic eco-spirituality first emerged as part of the counter-cultural hippie, New Age Movement in the 1960s. Currently, a 250 member counter-cultural community with a New Age eco-religion has a world view around the Indigenous word wakan
. Its leader, Steven Gaskin
, wrote: “The word wakan (holy) has a strong and universal concept and people around the world know something about it.” This sacred Indigenous word is also sometimes spelled wahkon
In the late 1960s, a leader of the counter-cultural hippie revolution who was affiliated with this counter-cultural community when it originated in California, along with his wife and I, traveled to Wahkon, Minnesota from California to potentially establish a counter-cultural community there. At the time, our plans to unite humanity, establish world peace and ecological balance temporarily came to an end. However, there are some indications that we will be getting together again in Wahkon, to promote a New Age Gaian – world view around the word wahkon – counter cultural, global initiative… an Occupy Wahkon Global Initiative.
It is a global initiative to achieve world peace and ecological balance
by, in part, influencing UN leaders and Occupy Wall Street to adopt the counter culture’s (or my) New Age Gaian – world view around the word wahkon
– earth saving and world unifying mission.
I am the Director and Founder of the Rum River Name Change Organization, Inc.. This organization was established to change the faulty-translation and profane English name for the “Rum River” back to its sacred Dakota Indigenous name (Wahkon). This organization’s headquarters are in Wahkon, Minnesota, located on the south end of Mille Lacs Lake. This lake is the outlet lake of the “Rum”/Wahkon River. The sacred Dakota name for this lake is Mde Wahkon (Lake Spirit). Wahkon is also the traditional name for the Dakota’s Great Spirit.
The Roman Catholic Church teaches, as proclaimed in the words of Pope Benedict XV: “A world government shall arise, all national loyalties will be vanquished, there will inevitatably follow a reign of terror.” Because of this teaching, it seem obvious to me that the Roman Catholic Church would be paranoid and opposed to any attempt to solve the world’s current crisis problems by the establishment of a one world government.
Therefore, I believe that the Roman Catholic Church, the institution that initiated, promoted and still supports the world-wide subjugation of Indigenous peoples and earth destroying international system we live under today… presents itself as a global institution opposed to any attempt, by any organization or individual, to solve the world’s current crisis problems, [if] the organization or individual is attempting to do so by establishing a one world government… and I believe that it is doing this, at this crucial time, when it is the only feasible way to solve the world’s current crisis problems that threaten the existence of all life on earth, as some world leaders also believe is the current situation.
The United Religions Initiative (URI), an international organization modeled after the UN, and affiliated with the UN, has a mission to help the UN achieve world peace by means of the effort to establish a world union of religions. In opposition to this effort, Cardinal Arinze, head of the Vatican’s Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue, said “the Roman Catholic Church is opposed to the United Religions Initiative”. And Pope Benedict XVI has stated that he is opposed to “the effort to establish a world-wide reign of peace by means of a world union of religions”.
The Roman Catholic Church is also opposed to religious syncretism that seeks to establish a one world religion. Some people who are involved with the URI believe it will soon adopt this form of religious syncretism
… and do so, because they see the UN beginning to change its original mission of promoting the principle of separativeness, or national sovereignty, to – as previously stated – “a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation”.
The Roman Catholic Church believes that lasting world peace and security can only be achieved after (1.) the future “antichrist” establishes his one world government, and (2.) a “reign of terror” occurs under the “antichrist’s” administration, and (3.) “Christ returns” to put an end to the “antichrist’s” one world government and “reign of terror”, and finally (4.) Christ establishes a new one world government.
Therefore, I believe that the Roman Catholic Church is not only opposed to the effort to establish a one world government, but that it is also, and even more so, opposed to the effort to establish, both, a one world government and one world religion. And I believe it is in opposition to this means of achieving world peace and security, when, at this crucial time, it is the only means feasible to achieving peace and security, or, the only means feasible to solve a multifaceted world wide crisis – a crisis problem that, if not solved in a shore period of time, will escalate and possibly destroy all life on earth.
If this is the case what hope does the world have with the Roman Catholic Church standing in the way?
Because of this situation, could the Roman Catholic Church be justly considered an eco-terrorist institution and its members eco-terrorists?
Also, the Roman Catholic Church teaches that at the time of “Christ return”, He will not only establish everlasting peace on earth, but also “restore creation to the purity of its origins” – meaning restore it to the way it was before “Adam and Eve”, or the first humans, sinned and caused the creation to fall into a state of corruption, which caused plants, animals and humans to lose their immortal existences, or die.
St. Symeon wrote: “Neither Eve nor Paradise were yet created, but the whole world had been brought into being by God as one thing, as a kind of paradise, at once incorruptible yet material and perceptible.”
St. John of Damascus wrote: “The creation of all things is due to God, but corruption came in afterwards due to our wickedness…For God did not make death, neither does He take delight in the destruction of living things” (Wisdom 1:13). But death is the work rather of man, that is, its origin is in Adam’s transgression.”
St. Ignatius Brianchaninov wrote: “Plants were not subjected either to decay or to diseases; both decay and diseases and the weeds themselves, appeared after the alteration of the earth following the fall of man.”
St. Basil the Great wrote: “…it is customary for vultures to feed on corpses, but since there were not yet corpses, nor yet their stench, so there was not yet such food for vultures. But all followed the diet of swans and all grazed the meadows…the beasts…were not carnivores…such was the first creation, and such will be the restoration after this.”
U.S. Catholic Bishops wrote: “The whole Bible is spanned by the narrative of the first creation (Gn 1:3) and the vision of a restored creation at the end of history” (RV. 21:1-4). The Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “Jesus came to restore creation to the purity of its origins” (CCC, n. 2336).
The problem with this Catholic foundational dogma and declared mission of Jesus Christ is that modern-day science has discovered and teaches that the creation was corrupt from its origins, and that corruption and death have ruled and reigned over life on earth for billions of years, or for a very long time before the first humans (or “Adam and Eve”) came forth on earth. Therefore, the creation can not be “restored to the purity of its origins”. This Roman Catholic dogma (an unchangeable doctrine) is a false doctrine and it is very deceptive and dangerous. more…
When Pope Benedict XVI was a Cardinal, he wrote that the “Antichrist” will present himself as a messenger of “peace and security” (a reference to I Thess. 5:3) and will be “precisely the one who terms himself the establisher of world peace”. This is how the New Agers’ Christ is expected to soon manifest himself to the world. New Agers believe that he will establish a One World Government and lasting world peace.
Do to a misguided belief in the fulfillment of a deceptive Biblical prophecy, the Roman Catholic Church teaches that the “Antichrist” will establish a One World Government and attempt to bring lasting world peace. It also teaches that the “Antichrist” will “persecute” the Church (which, I suppose, would include exposing its horrible genocidal history and false underlining foundational dogma) and that Jesus Christ would then bodily return and destroy the “Antichrist” and establish world peace, as well as “restore creation to the purity of its origins”, which modern-day science has proven cannot happen.
This proves that the Roman Catholic Church’s message of eternal salvation is not reality and that the Church’s opposition to any organization’s or individual’s mission to achieve peace and security by an effort to establish a one world government is insane and extremely dangerous.
Influential United Nations leaders have to deal with the Biblical scriptures’ based, Roman Catholic religious insanity-that threatens the existence of all life on earth and opposes their global mission.
It is a global mission, or initiative, to establishment a one world government and one world religion to solve the world’s problems, and they pursue this goal by promoting a paradigm shift associated with the Gaia Hypothesis and the evolving, syncretistic New Age Gaian eco-religion… whose members believe in, honor and pray to Mother Earth-and do not separate humans from nature, nor humans from God, nor God from Earth, or Nature – believing Divine Nature is a part of God, and that God is greater than Nature, or the Universe. They also believe in attaining conscious oneness with God, or enlightenment.
I recommend that Occupy Wall Street adopt this global initiative.
