From the hidden archives and covered annals of History, falls the troublesome tale of Tea, Camellia Sinensis, or as they called it in China, cha.

Like coffee beans, vanilla cane, cacao beans, sugar cane, yerba mate leaves and coca leaves, this light and soft, green leaf – delivers a nice energy kick for its users.

An important question elicits some response: how did such a distant Asian plant change the course of world history, and yet transform so many cultures – and even those far off lands where it is impossible to grow such a plant?

The answer lies not so much with the plant – but with the historical traders who have profited off such a traffic. Whether trafficking in human slaves for plantation death work, opiates for achieving quick deaths, high-tech weapons for creating more wars, psychotropic meds for encouraging more mass killings, or processed meats for allowing more efficient slaughterhouse floors – the trade in spices and herbs does engender some peculiar benefits.

It was not the spice-herb itself however. The human actions of traders changed everything through their cravings and desires for greater and faster profits. They have been the ones who have manipulated the prices, achieved monopolies, and pressured states to go to war over such rights of monopoly and the free trade of capital.

All of this rancid progress implied cheaper commodity prices across the board, and even cheaper wages for the unfortunate worker slaves on the plantations. Most importantly, all of their outrageous profits thereby insured the capitalist owners their legal rights to join the slothful, aristo-parasite club.

In the 1830s, one of the world history’s greatest colonial kidnappers, transporters, slave masters and mass murderers of Africans, the British Empire, had just recently ‘freed’ its slaves in the West Indies. Their West Indian, or really Caribbean, colonies represented Guyana, Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua and a whole other list of little islands that were nothing more than African extermination centers located in the Caribbean.

Like the other mass murderers of Africans, such as the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, French, Danish and American Empires, the British authorities widely celebrated their so-called ’emancipation from slavery.’ The slave rebellions and escapes were too much to handle – although they never admitted this. The colonizers always stated that their abolition of slavery was due to their European benevolence.

Through such colonial benevolence, those same European authorities refused to offer any help to the former ex-slaves. The ex-chattel dregs received no property, money, housing, food or anything – instead the authorities always compensated the wealthy slave-plantation owners and traders.

The ex-slave had thus transformed into the new criminal class of the lumpen proletariat, last hired, first hired – and only offered the worst jobs in regards to both pay and health dangers. If the ex-slave, the newly minted criminal, dared to protest, strike or riot, then the local military or paramilitary police forces would simply shoot and murder them like exterminating rabid dogs. This is what happened in such ex-colonies as Jamaica, Brazil and Louisiana during the mid to late 1800s.

As a historian, there was always another driving concern in regards to the whole abolition of slavery myth. Why did certain European and Euro-American powers legislate emancipation at different times?

The Brazilian Portuguese and the Spanish Cubans legislated emancipation of the slaves in the 1880s. The French legislated final slave abolition in the 1840s. The British did it in the 1830s. What happened in the 1830s? Britain’s imperial possessions in other parts of the world can add some understanding to the general history.

At this same time in world history, the British began their colonial-imperial moves to control the entire international tea market.. They had also become the greatest drug dealers in world history. The British Empire would steal both the tea production and some seeds from China. Next, they would produce the Chinese tea on large plantations in northern India and Ceylon, (the island of Sri Lanka, off the southern tip of India), while using slave labor, or ‘coolies’ from all over South Asia.

The British Empire would soon cultivate another crop of poppy plants on their same colony of India, soon called ‘The British Raj’ in order to sell the product as black opium paste to the unwary Chinese, and thereby make millions off the addicts, while creating a permanent client base of junkies. With the abolition of slavery in the British Caribbean, the British Empire could coerce poor Asians to immigrate to the Caribbean in order to work as coolie slaves on the sugar plantations. The island of Trinidad was the worst of the lot.

The ingenious British capitalists and colonial officials had both corralled ready consumers and ready slave workers on three different, separate continents!

British tea drinking would become cheap and widely accepted in Victorian British culture, with even the British royal court having its ‘afternoon tea time.’ Tea converted into the cheap rage for all of its social classes: the aristocracy, the middle class who always aped them, and even the new working classes, who had to work so many hours that they had no time for proper meals. Tea breaks and drinking class time at the pub would often suffice.

Meanwhile, back in India, all the tea plantations had imprisoned slave workers, often worked to death, while others just died of disease.

Tea, or the milky chai stuff with masala spices, had also become a new fad for the Indian colonial collaborators, or ‘the civil service.’ These same people would take over the Indian state after their so-called, ‘independence-emancipation’ in 1948.

In China, plagued with its British ‘trading ports,’ such as Hong Kong and Shanghai, the colonizers had stolen the tea secrets, broke the Chinese tea economy, and at the same time, the Brit colonial merchants were drugging millions of Chinese with the opium poison cultivated in India!

Many displaced Chinese farmers had to look for work across the globe, and so they became the new coolie wage slaves found in the American west, in Andean South America, and often transported on flimsy work contracts to work on the other British colonial possessions, such as Malaya, in the Indochina region.

Tea is a light and bitter-tasting green leaf that alleviates against torpor and sloth. Often ground into power with water, or oxidized into a black dried leaf and sipped with deep creamy spices, camellia sinensis, offers an airy release to the doldrums of living life. It is a drug, but not even close to the power of soft drugs. Tea simply refreshes the mind from its constant struggle against inertia.

Tea’s history is ancient another story altogether. Always precious within the Chinese Middle Kingdom, Chan/Zen Buddhist monks, of the Mahayana persuasion, regularly used and extolled tea’s virtues in helping keep the monk focused, while persevering between meditation sessions. Monks in Korea and Japan also imbibed the grounded, powdery tea leaves. Soon an entire mindful ceremony revolved around the use, presentation, and sipping of tea.

Unfortunately for tea, European military colonizers and the dishonest merchants of capital had also spotted uses for the plant. They perceived tea not as a universal drink, but as a commodity for control, monopoly and export – and in the final product, a windfall of profits for their perverted dreams of laziness.

To live – and to never have to do any hard work again! Due to all of their gnawing cravings and desires for profit, the merchants of capital a would perform any crime imaginable for its conquest: theft, lying, disreputable livelihoods, profiteering, enslaving, and of course, murder.

The British colonial cloak and dagger plot goes even deeper. In the 1830s, The Royal Horticultural Society hired a Scotsman, dressed in Chinese mandarin garb, like the Italian Jesuits about 200 years before him, to spy out the production of tea in China. This man, a Mr. Robert Fortune, (yes, that was his real name), was able to take copious notes and grab lots of seeds. He even transferred his loyalties to a more ominous entity, The British East India Company. And yes, this was the same notorious outfit that got its tea monopoly taken care of during the 1770s in America, and lead to the revolt there, i.e. the Boston Tea Party!

Fortune did make his Fortune for both him and his East India Company. By, the 1840s the British had established tea slave plantations in Assam and Darjeeling, and when their coffee production scam fell through in Ceylon, the British switched to tea down there. Is it not a coincidence that the British Raj of colonial India began in 1848.

The British had a hard time in rounding up coolie, indentured slaves for their plantations, so they imprisoned them inside those hellholes, and would not pay them in coin. Instead, they gave out scrap papers, which made them debt slaves to the ‘companies.’ The British even refused to supply clothing, housing – and even food. Most of the slaves would die through overwork and disease. There were many escapes. One slave plantation owner actually sent a local paramilitary force to murder the escapees.

All of this happened. Even Indian official history refuses to tell the horrid details. Maybe because their great, great grandparents helped their own British overlords in committing the mass imprisonment and mass murder.

The British Empire was always expert in the importation of foreign workers. The locals knew the dangers of working on their tea plantations, so the British colonials brought in unwary Nepalese. In Ceylon, modern Sri Lanka, the Sinhalese would not work to die on those plantations, so the British imported Tamils from southern India to work as slaves. The British then snubbed the Buddhist culture of the Sinhalese, and so they purposefully fused the tensions between the two communities leading to the recent Sinhalese extermination of the Tamil communities in Sri Lanka.

Is not absurd that in many of the places where the British had recently colonized, they have also left legacies of hate and murder between once peaceful communities: Sri Lanka-Tamil Nadu, India-Pakistan, Ulster-Ireland, Jordan-Palestine, Iraq-Gulf States, Canada-Quebec, Malaysia-China, Egypt-Sudan, Iraq-Iran, Afghanistan-Kashmir, Kenya-Uganda, Myanmar-Burma, Australia-Aboriginal Reserves, South Africa-Boer Afrikaaner States, New Zealand-Maori Treaties, Rhodesia-Zimbabwe and Biafra-Nigeria?

And so it goes – the British Empire triumphed in their devious schemes to become the biggest tea importer monopolists around the world. We have only to look on the contemporary tea names of Lipton, Tetley and Twinning, to uncover their devious works.

The British ultimately ceded their port colonies to Chinese control – and the British lost America some 200 years before. Both the British and Indians are now milky tea drinkers. Tea has become part of their cultures – inclusive of cricket and lackadaisical civil service bureaucracies. Absurdity is everywhere and the Six Truths of History still reign supreme.

Tea has not just changed the cultures of China, Korea, Japan, India, Sri Lanka and Britain. Russia has also adopted tea drinking and its rituals with the samovar instrument to pour the stuff. Russian tea drinking actually became an integral part of its culture around the same time as British culture embraced tea, during the nineteenth-century.

Islamic medieval civilization had been enjoying the bittersweet and light brews of tea with little marzipan cakes for a thousand years before the Europeans began to monopolize the trade. They were the first merchants of both tea and coffee, and never did they pine to control the entire tea market.

In the Maghreb and the Sahel of North Africa, a marvelous tea culture has emerged among all the different nations that live there. Once the tea sits in the metal tea container for at least ten minutes, called a tetería in Spanish, then the pourer throws the first cup to the floor, which flows with loose grains. This is the cup for one’s enemies. Next, comes the first pour of hot tea around the table, and often between friends, which represents the fiery power of youth. The second round of tea usually has sugar added to it. This round signifies life’s sweet moments of love, family and one’s mastery of work. The third oblation is the final one. This last drink has a more lukewarm, grainy and bitter flavor to it. The last libation represents the bittersweet taste of life leading to old age, illness and death.

Still to this day, wage slaves in India work to death on those same British tea plantations. Now, it is the Neo-colonial State of India that encourages the murder of its own citizens. Tea retains its sacred position in Chinese universal culture, which includes calligraphy writing, distinctive stupa architecture, sublime intellectual masters, paintings on silk, pious Buddhist monks, five thousand years of history, and exquisite porcelain china.

Thanks to America, and especially to the Boston Tea Party of 1773, which helped move the American Revolution along, most modern tea drinkers use tea bags in their cups. In the American Southland, they prefer iced sweet tea, or mint julep tea, to the warm black-milky stuff.

Camellia Sinensis sits on tables across the Earth and remains a prisoner to the tea corporations that want us to purchase their products. They are all distinctly displayed on most supermarket shelves across the globe. We can visit China, Korea and Japan in order to taste the powdered organic stuff – and yet even there – tea still sells on the marketplace.

One can grow tea, but it only flourishes in particular oceanic-moderate climates. Every time we pour another cup, let us stay awake, keep mindful, and live with a mind well-freed – while we shall always remember its absurd, brutal, sad history.

Sugar is the most excellent drug found on this bio-diverse Earth, and it is the simplest image for our Modern World: white sand, sweet tasting crystals leading to a bad death.

This quick energy drug is ubiquitous within the foods that we allow into our bodies, yet at the same time, each sugar crystal is a tiny microcosm of sweetness delight. The sugar crystal is not natural; instead, this cultivated poison moves from a hard, tall green stalk into a black vomit inducing blob, and ultimately transformed into its refined purity of whiteness.

Sugar is a curse, a culinary staple, and it has a nauseous history of mass murder, which has acted even more criminally than another notorious, black sticky, pharmaceutical mess – opium. This furtive drug, Saccharum Officinarum, is quite tiny, yet so dangerous.

Not one state apparatus has attempted to ban it. If this drug has such an egregious history and is so harmful to our human bodies, then why does it lurk in every kitchen, and now sit ominously on every supermarket shelf, waiting for its simple victims to purchase such a deadly toxin?

The 1290s AD was a suffocating decade for some, yet a type of endless summer rotated around the northern hemisphere of Earth. For those slaves working in the Venetian Empire’s sugar plantations, on the island of Crete – they were however experiencing the first tastes of medieval, concentration camp-death. Due to the previous extermination of the native trees, the Venetian slaves built those infernal sugar plantations out of graveyard stone. You won’t find any of this history inside those official textbooks.

On this beautiful Mediterranean island, known for its glorious ancient history of cities, artistic genius and great warriors, the Venetian aristocratic parasites and merchants-soldiers, divided the sacred island into sections of prisoner of war-slave killing centers. This refined art of murder had developed a more efficient method in disposing of its unfortunate victims.

The heat in the slave death camps reached strangulation proportions. The massive ceramic vats of crushed sugar cane reeked of vomit pestilence splayed with fecal remains. It even looked like an excrement inferno coming out of a fiery hell mouth. Some slaves would suddenly drop dead from taking in its noxious fumes! Other slaves, dying through overwork while cutting the sugar cane in the humid, malodorous morass, would crawl into the sea in order to drown and feed the sharks. And then a few others, just died on the dirty, rocky paths to the plantations. The owners let them die alone, since the hungry rats and dogs might feed on their putrid flesh.

Eventually, the native Cretans had had enough, and they revolted around seventy years later. The Venetian imperial murderers destroyed Crete’s moment of freedom. They would not be the last ones to foil Crete’s desire for independence either. The Venetians would construct those killing centers on another Mediterranean island, called Cyprus, a couple of hundred of years later. Throughout the eastern Mediterranean, the Venetian naval empire established military ports, or castles, on the Dalmatian coast and around Greece, such as the city of Napflio, so the Grand Empire could protect its slave trading-sugar refining investments.

The Venetians kidnapped their human booty of slaves from every part of the Mediterranean world. It didn’t matter whether they were Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Jews or Muslims, European, Asian or African. Any captured victim would do, since so many died within the first years of sugar plantation work. The Venetians also collaborated with the other Mediterranean slave trading medieval empires, such as the Genoese, the Pisans, the Catalans, the Arabs, the Byzantines and the so-called, Crusaders on the island of Malta, called the Knights of St. John, whose main business was also the slave trade.

Nobody beat those tight Venetians who had established proto-capitalist monopolies in expensive commodities. This maritime empire possessed the unstoppable construction of naval warships at the Arsenal factoryThe Venetian imperial oligarchy was also ingenious in the art of backstabbing its trading partners, while it maintained secretive trade agreements-treaties across the globe.

Marco Polo was no discoverer. He was a Venetian spy-merchant who ensured trade agreements between the Mongol Khanates, such as the Mongol dominated Yuan Dynasty in China, and the Venetian Empire, or as they called themselves, La Serenissima.

The Venetians, supposed Catholics, maintained better relations with the Muslim Mamelukes in Egypt, the Muslim Ottomans in Turkey, and the Muslim Caliphate in Baghdad – than the Orthodox Christians Byzantines, who they had sieged, sacked, destroyed, and robbed mercilessly during the Fourth Crusade of 1215!

If the Venetians could not grab cheap prices in precious metals and expensively traded commodities, then they would suddenly attack their enemies – and rob the stuff. They periodically performed such double crosses against the powerful Turkish naval empire. The Venetians did allow all of their foreign traders to maintain storehouses on their properties, called Fondacchi.

The other European powers admired their violent wealth accumulation, while they hated their double dealing cheapness. Some three hundred years later, even the Pope joined a military alliance against this maritime empire of aristo-thieves and slothful degenerates. European aristo-parasites craved their elite consumption, such as fine glassware, elaborate window blinds, embroidered silk from China, carved ivory from the Orient, or most importantly, exotic spices from around the Earth. There was only one international market store, which always had plentiful supplies of hard to find products – the Venetians.

Medieval European elites developed a peculiar taste for a very particular Asian drug-spice, previously known for its monopoly trade name in the Islamic world, Al Sukkar, or as the Euros named it, Sugar. Before the Venetians, the Arabs were the premier traders in this Asian sweet spice. They had fashioned the dessert delights of marzipan. The Arabs also established massive slave plantations in Mesopotamia and in north Africa to cut the cane. The Muslim slave traders operated in the Balkans and Black Sea zone through the human trafficking of heathens, while they also moved their slave trading into East Africa for the kidnapping of some idolaters.

It was the Venetian Empire who first launched the modern, maritime gold mines of slave trading, human trafficking, large slave plantations, efficient mass murder, and the expert commoditization of Asia’s most powerful drug – sugar. This evil, double-headed hydra of sugar and slavery amassed amazing wealth and power. By the 15th century, the Venetians transcended into the most formidable naval empire on the planet.

Today, when tourists visit the canals, bridges and plazas of Venezia, they look astounded at the sublime beauty, architectural glory and intricate building design that permeates the entire, ancient city. We must never forget where this outward prettiness came from – the maleficent twin fists spewing out of proto-capitalism: slavery and sugar.

Sugar is the most prevalent and most dangerous pharmaceutical drug on the planet. This is the true reason why criminal states and governments across the globe refuse to ban it. Sugar’s sweet taste and quick hit of energy have also transformed this drug into the greatest medical-dental gift. Sugar continues to fill corporate doctors’ pockets with a steady line of customers for further drugging and expensive surgeries.

Sugar’s most abominable crimes are not its legacies of mortal disease, incurable diabetes, horrifying obesity and terminal illness, but its contemptible historical associations with mass kidnapping, mass slavery, and mass murder.

It was not always this way. Sugar originally came from New Guinea, and it slowly moved west becoming the sweet salts of the tropics across the Indian subcontinent. Once sugar entered the processing stage into its white crystal form, greedy merchants wanted to monopolize both its production and distribution. Sugar then had to resort to its loathsome use of slave labor in order to produce the white mess of sweet destruction.

Copying the evil legacy of the Venetian slave trading-sugar plantation inferno, other European maritime empires entered into the sugar-slavery profit windfall.

The first Atlantic mass murderers were the Portuguese who would build their massive navy, during the same period when Venice was the premier naval power. The Portuguese constructed bulky trading ships for the Atlantic Sea, which was a lot larger, brutal and unpredictable than the Mediterranean Sea, and the Portuguese sailed south – well into Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Portuguese invaders established similar castle fortresses like the Venetians, which also featured pre-modern prison-like, jail cells for captured slaves dying in their metal chains. The Portuguese began purchasing their slaves as captured war booties from other African nations. Migratory African population movements due to climate and warfare, also enabled the Portuguese to establish mixed race hunters, meaning mixed European and African traders, who constantly supplied the Portuguese with kidnapped victims.

Copying the Venetian soldier thugs, the Portuguese naval criminals brought sugar cane plantations from the Mediterranean to their Atlantic archipelagos and African coast islands, such as Madeira and Sao Tome. Sugar was a tropical plant and it worked splendidly. African slaves died off after a few years. Once the planters worked the unfortunates to death, the colonial soldiers dumped the human excrement into the mighty Atlantic for shark feed.

When the Portuguese took the American Atlantic coast of northeast Brazil in 1500, they planted sugar plantations everywhere – after they had first exterminated the Brazil wood tree and the Tupamori Nation in the north part of the country. After five centuries of sugar cane plantations and African slavery, northeast Brazil now has the same topography as the Moon.

The Portuguese first used captured Tupamori and Guarani natives from the southern part of the country, around Sao Paolo. The natives died off en masse working to death on sugar plantations, while others had escaped deep within the Amazon interior. No Portuguese peasant was willing to work to death in Brazil, so the Portuguese began their mass kidnapping-mass murder campaign with Africans, transported from their port prison colonies of Guinea, Angola, Kongo and Mozambique. By the 1600s, the Portuguese Empire had become the richest slave and sugar trading system in the Americas. In 1640 they revolted from Spanish control.

The other European Atlantic powers looked in envy at Portugal, and so they too joined in the mass kidnapping-mass murder of Africans spree in order to monopolize the Triangular Trade.

Triangular Trade implied selling the Africans to the Sugar planters in the Americas, next making their victims work to death on the sugar plantations. The ship captains would transport the Sugar to Europe, which was a monetary commodity in itself. The European ‘traders’ would then travel again to Africa, so as to replenish the sugar hells with more African victims. The Spanish, French, English, Dutch and even the Danish and Swedes joined in this evil Mercantile Capitalist system. Most of Europe’s royal families made their more profitable investments through this shocking economy.

By the 1700s, the European colonial-settler invaders had successfully exterminated the native Caribs and most of the tree life on many of the West Indian islands. All across the Caribbean archipelagos, massive sugar plantation-extermination centers opened their veins. Those extermination centers transformed into tropical dungeons through the arts of murdering Africans, with the processing of cane into pure white sugar. In Brazil, the average life expectancy of an African slave on a sugar plantation was only five years!

With this massive liquidation of natives, trees and Africans, there also emerged ex-slave African communities across the Americas, called maroons in English, cimarrones in Spanish, marronage in French, and palenques in Portuguese. In Spanish Florida, a community of escaped African slaves and Seminole natives created their own viable communities. The US Government would exterminate that group during the first half of the 1800s.

Most of the Europeans that used sugar were the aristo-parasites who dumped the sweet white salts into their refined tastes for African Coffee, Asian Tea and American Chocolate. But as sugar production increased all across the American tropics, planters needed to process the black mess into other products. They successfully created Molasses and Rum. By the mid 1700s, most of Europe’s working classes began to use sugar as a food substitute, which withstood the pangs of hunger, and yet released brief spurts of energy.

This wider consumption of sugar across Europe, also explains the Golden Age of Pirates and Buccaneers in the Caribbean during the 18th century, (1700s). Sugar was another expensive commodity for successful trading, included within the monetary delights of gold, silver and copper, with the precious objects trade of pearls, jade stones, diamonds, silks, ivory and porcelain. Sugar started a new industry across Europe, called confectionary, or in Italian, dolce, which in turn created our modern, candies. Some wealthy Europeans began to grow large bodies from eating so much sweet crap.

With this wider use of sugar, more Europeans began to lose their teeth. It is no accident that the first works on modern Dentistry emerged out of this same period. The French doctor, Pierre Fuchard, wrote Le Chirugien Dentiste, in 1728. Like today, with rotting teeth due to sugary after effects, the solution was extraction and the setting of false teeth.

Sugar production and slavery were so lucrative that American African slavery continued well into the late 1800s. The last country to liberate their African slaves was Portuguese speaking Brazil, in 1888.

As Industrial Capitalism grew in the 19th century, capitalists found sugar substitutes in beets, such as beet sugar, while we now have multiple GMO sugar substitutes, which also includes most beet sugar products, and other monstrosities, such as Splendida, Sweet N Low, and the worst GMO product of them all, High Fructose Corn Syrup. The only sweet sugar substitute that doesn’t fall into these categories is Xylitol.

So here we have the sordid history of the sweet drug of sugar cane. If one travels to the US state of Florida, off the main highways, one can still visit horrid sugar plantations with dying slaves, now containing both white and black victims. When they lose their will to work, the slaves lie around and just wait to die on the property. As sugar rots the topsoil of the land, it encroaches into the natural Everglades ecosystem murdering even more trees and other native plant life.

Amerikan corporate chain supermarkets mostly sell GMO food crap that contains massive amounts of sugar, sugar by-products, glucose, sucrose and a whole list of GMO sugar substitutes. It is not just the sweet stuff, but also the canned goods, the frozen items, the prepared foods, and everyday products, such as dairy and meats – where they all contain some amount of sugar. Finding actual food products with 0 grams of sugar is usually the exception to the rule.

With this oppressive reign of sugary terror, millions suffer the debilitating health effects of rotten teeth, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Maybe this is the eternal curse emanating from the African victims of the Atlantic slave trade and killing centers in the Americas. The Americas are experiencing the bad karma of sugar’s history – with no escape from its malevolent colonial consequences. Like the State itself, sugar is completely legal, and yet it kills so wonderfully.

Throughout human history, Evil has often emanated from the comforting lights of deceit.

For around 500 years, starting in the mid to late 1400s A.D., one peculiar social class, coming out of one particular continent, has attacked, invaded, plundered, tortured, enslaved, and murdered the mysterious magic behind Earth’s existence.

This estate of people were the class climbing ambitious ones who wanted noble titles with the rights that came from such titles. They birthed from the continent of Europe, which was a civilization that sanctified the slothful, lazy and parasitical, and yet at the same time, formulated the heinous lie of the ‘hard work ethic.’

Ultimately, this social class of deceivers invented the most evil ideology in human history: racialism, all in order to maintain their wicked clutch of power. Europe was a strange civilization indeed. Who, what, when, where, why and how could describe such a bizarre continent?

The first monstrosity that poisoned the Soul of Europe was the Judeo-Christian Monotheist Cult. This poisoning did not begin with Constantine’s acceptance of the Christian religion into the Greater Roman Pantheon of Cults during the 4th Century A.D. Most of Europe’s culture was pagan until well into the 7th Century A.D.

In the north of Europe, modern Scandinavia, northern Germany, and in eastern Europe, mostly around the Slavic, Baltic and Hun lands, such as Lithuania, Finland, Eastern Poland and Southern Russia; most of Hungary, Dalmatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, a greater part of Romania, most of the people in those nations retained their old European pagan traditions.

By the 15th century, almost all of Europe adhered to some form of Christianity mixed with ancient pagan concepts, whether Celt, Roman, Greek, German or Slav, or all the above mixed together for heightened effect. Bad historians love to praise such a cultural mix as the birth of medieval civilization.

The various medieval regions represented the Byzantine sphere of influence, the Holy Roman Empire sphere of influence, the Frankish imperial domains, the Muslim Caliphate of Spain, or around the Maritime slave trading-raiding empires of the Normans, Genoans, Pisans and Venetians, the Mamelukes of Egypt, and the Muslim Sublime Ports in the Maghreb.

Medieval Europe did have its enchanted sides, especially in the heroic epics of just kings and noble knights; however, the Judeo-Christian monotheist ideology began to rot the thinking of many Europeans. Unlike the heroic gods of the Celts, Romans and Germans, the Christian God hung on a wooden torture device, the Cross. And yet, the Crucifixion torture device gave its God supreme powers.

The power of the Cross signified the mental anguish of vengeance with the fury of extreme violence for the Murder of God, or the Grand Deicide. The story also meant the conquering of bodily sin and the guilt of confession, according to the mad monks, often using violent methods, such as chains, whips and brutal disciplines.

The further struggle entailed the fight against the Evil One, or Satan, and his demonic kingdom. Ultimate Justice implied the Final Judgment of the Victorious Sacrificial God who will punish the Evil Apostates that refused to submit to his power. All of the non-believers will end up in the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, or Hell – tortured for all Eternity. Not even Hitler or Stalin could compare to this vengeful and violent God.

Christianity’s religious-ideological position has centered on a movement for revenge, extremism through faith, and the encouragement of suffering, meaning physical and mental suffering heightened together – all for the conquering of sin and evil through the example of Christ and his kingdom of the Saints.

This ideology of vengeance and zealotry explains its penchant for extreme violence, only found in the History of Christianity, such as Crusades, Papal Pornocracies, Inquisitions, Religious Wars, Witch Burnings, Ideological support for the African slave exterminations, Political alliances with Fascists, Gunmen attacking Women’s health clinics, and other fanatical acts of mass murder.

This ideology also encourages mental diseases and sexual perversions, such as madness, pederasty, sexual molestation and pedophilia, due to its obsessions with mental and bodily repressions versus sin, vices, doubts, backsliding and evil. Mental repression, guilt and anguish only cause further obsessions on the prohibited evil acts and thoughts.

In sum, the ideological-religious detritus of extremism, violent brutality and the mind-body repression-madness-perversion, infected European medieval culture. Instead of just killing one’s enemies, one had to develop the technologies of torturing the physical body in order to make the hated ones suffer even more horribly.

The World History of Torture is a nasty section of Humanity’s vices. But the European Medieval period is especially sick in regards to its favorite tortures and murders against the Human Body.

The medieval State encouraged the legal form of torture and murder, but in copying the Church and the State, ancient European families introduced the brutal disciplinary procedures of beatings and punishments. There were also the common torturers who used hand weapons, usually canes, whips and chains. Fathers, both secular and religious, often utilized such torture methods against adepts, wives, children and servant slaves.

Once the father uses those brute methods in educating his children, the children become permanently damaged and they often fight back through their own modes of violence and the abuse of intoxicants, or simply self-medication – or even using both forms together.

During the 15th century, when European class climbers began to fix their gazes at the greater Earth, they carried over their mental sufferings from those extremist ideologies. This ideological mix-up included the extermination of pagan-non-Christian religions for the one true faith, punishments against the human body in relation to nakedness, normal sexual diversity, or sodomy. The Triumph of the Judeo-Christian Cult was so thorough that most Europeans referred to their hodgepodge of lands as a united Christendom, well into the middle of the 1700’s.

While the Judeo-Christian ideology twisted the thinking of Medieval Christendom, Europeans also began to admire the lifestyle of the Christian corporate institution, The Church. The priests received the taxes, or tithes, from the peasants, and from there, they had to kick up the tithes to the Hierarchy.

The bishops, or captains of the region, lived like the Dux, or dukes, the knighted regional commanders. From the Bishops, they had to kick up the money to the Papal Court, the Pope and his consiglieri, or advisers, or as they used the term, La Curia, which included selected Cardinals who maintained each Congregation.

No king, nor emperor lived as sumptuously as the Papal Court. The most important congregations, or administrations in the Papacy, represented the Treasury, the Holy Office of the Inquisition, the Bulls, or funding, of the Holy Crusades, and the Papal mercenary armies, or condottieri.

Jealous of the pride, sloth, gluttony, luxury, avarice, legal violence and envious nature of the Papal Court in Rome, the secular powers had to copy such vileness. The Church was also the greatest land robber in world history. Unlike the Papal States, The Mosque in Medieval Islamic Civilization did not have a separate corporate identity, nor did it have a clergy possessing special powers with autonomous legal privileges.

The Church transformed into the first corporate institution to putrefy ancient Germanic and Roman Law in demanding both corporate legal rights and individual rights, through the legal theft of common lands; while at the same time, the Church also had another set of rights, meaning the rights of State, due to governing a vast territory in central Italy, called the Papal States. There were also the numerous religious orders inside the Church, who not only possessed the corporate rights of the First Estate, but also held the corporate rights of an organized, military-like, corporate religious order, such as the Franciscans and Dominicans.

Again, the secular elites, or knights without noble titles, copied their religious overlords in stealing lands from surrounding communities through their own, legal rights of conquest.

The Church seconded such pronouncements through encouraging a continuous Crusade for the conversion of souls. The Spanish first used this method in Al-Andalus, southern Spain. In the Americas, Spanish and the Portuguese knights again used the exact same methods in exterminating the native nations and then stealing their lands.

Even the Church’s religious enemies used such tactics, the Orthodox Church in league with the Tsars copied such sinister techniques during Russia’s wars both against the Catholic Polish and Germans, and against the Muslim Khanates, or Tatars. The Protestant English Knights-Lords, in league with the Established Church, used kindred procedures against Britain’s peasants, through the Enclosure Acts, and later against the Irish Catholics in Ulster – and even later, against the Highlander Clans in Scotland. The biggest supporters of Luther’s Protestant Crusade were the class climbing knights that plagued the German States of the Holy Roman Empire.

This ingenious legal conquest system allowed knights without noble titles to conquer the lands of the Enemy, and thereby receive noble titles for meritorious services, later becoming Nobles of the Sword, or in French, noblesse d’épée, Their medieval legal privileges did not stop with such noble titles however.

Due to the historical writings about the Noble Spartans who defended the Greek cities from the Persian Asiatic Horde, once a knight received his noble title from royalty, the man could not do any laborious work with the hands – or he would lose his honor.

The ‘new man’ then changed his name to the title, just like a person received a new name after taking Holy Orders, in becoming a priest, monk or nun. The nobles of the sword transformed into loyal allies of the throne becoming token administrators of the conquered lands, called the landed aristocracy.  

The landed aristocracy had to fight for the King when given orders. But as royal powers transcended into colonial empires, and as more European kings used mercenary forces, and recruited so-called professional armies from the ranks of the artisan and farmer classes, and even mixed racial castes, the nobles of the sword also changed their elite dimensions.

Many trained soldiers, or favorites, moved into the royal courts and lived as courtiers, often sleeping until midday in soft beds. They spent their days in luxurious sloth: hunting, practicing sword fights for possible duels, eating ten course meals well into the night, engaging in promiscuous sexual relations, gambling, and partying until the daylight hours.

Others took overseas political positions as appointed colonial administrators. While a whole other group just sat around their massive estates, putting about their 50 room manor homes, while receiving taxes and rents from the farmers that labored on the aristo’s lands.

The aristocracy had no ties whatsoever to the land, nor did they even lift a hand to help maintain the fragile ecosystem. The landed aristocrats, or social parasites, simply collected legal extortion rackets from the hardworking farmers – similar to the Mafia bosses who collect protection money from businesses located in ‘safe urban neighborhoods.’ Royal authority sanctified the whole fraud scheme through the legal rights of private property.

Many Americans mistake the rights of private property for the rights of personal property. The rights of private property signified the rights of a family, or any corporate institution, including the State, to the complete ownership of lands, often with no historical use of the said lands.

These corporate institutions had given themselves the rights and legal privileges to open more lands due to conquest, family title, or mystical authority. This legal fraud virtually imprisoned the hard-working families who actually worked on the lands for survival.

Meanwhile, the owners collected the rents and taxes. The political-economic system containing such legal fictions allowed for the growth of Capitalism’s second stage, Mercantile Capitalism.

Mercantile Capitalism was simply a corrupt economic system where royal families favored particular merchants or venture capitalists who also had special access to funds from the royal treasuries.

Those capitalists could use those royal funds because the same royal families, and also their aristocratic cousins, and other social parasites, were always the first investors.

The investors also formed military grade institutions, called companies, which possessed greater legal rights than the poor individuals in the flunky courts. A few of these companies even controlled large naval armies and administered their own foreign colonies, such as the East Indies and West Indies Companies. What was their most profitable business during that epoch?

These companies made most of their heinous profits through world history’s most evil, mass kidnapping and mass murder spree, called the African slave trade, with the extermination fields of export crop plantations located in the Americas. Always remember, Europe’s mercantile class of royalties, aristo-parasites and class climbing miscreants managed and directed this nefarious trade.

Through the massive destruction of native and African lives, all of which led to the agricultural plantation production of cash crop-drugs, incinerator capitalism had birthed – and still this noxious scam of an economy fumigates across the Globe.

As capitalism invaded the peripheries of world Empires, this political-economic system rammed through a greater decomposition within the modern European family structure.

Family solidarity changed its particular terms and conditions. For any and all economic survival under savage capitalism, a brutal struggle ensued to grab as much inheritance capital as possible. Surviving family members could become mortal enemies to each other.

Nowadays, millions of other class climbers, in every corner of the Earth, have forsaken their honor in pursuit of cheap profits. They will murder, lie, cheat, steal and destroy everything in their path – all for the love of money – profits and even more profits. If all the other animals, plants, trees and arable land just dropped dead – those hungry ghost capitalists would continue their desperation for the next emerging markets.

Within any agricultural plantation production cycle, the most pressing issue was labor. The first sugar slave plantations in the Mediterranean used captured slaves from war booty. The European colonial powers in the Americas: Spain, Portugal, France, Britain, the Netherlands, and Denmark also utilized captured, native slaves from Conquest, and somewhat later, used indentured-convict white slaves from Europe. Those methods of overwork through death did not function well. The European mercantile elite’s only recourse revolved around the kidnapping rings, liquidation murders and mass enslavement of Africans.

As the great death of native nations continued, due to introduced European diseases throughout the Americas, European elite merchants had radically changed the human map. Most colonial American cities possessed small communities of European elites representing political hacks, soldiers, clergy and slave-owning planters, while the greater half of the population comprised racial lumpens, often of mixed native-white-African roots, and then a large mass of African slaves, freemen and mulattos.

From the 1580s-1780s, the false Euro-aristos in the colonial plantations resorted to the old and true method in maintaining social control over subject populations, Divisi et vincere, (Latin, Divide and Conquer).

The colonial elites gave a few token privileges to the Euro lower classes, such as weapon ownership, legal rights, with a new social identity, as whites. Meanwhile, the Africans entered the lowest social class, permanently associated with hated slavery. Using older zoological terms for agricultural cattle breeding, the European aristo-parasites created the Great Lie of Race.

This monstrous perjury incubated the culture of American colonialism, and in all irony, it returned to the European metropolis in the early twentieth-century, as Fascism, so political dictators could murder millions of more Europeans.

The European elites have left no part of our Earth untouched. On every continent, hordes of aristo-parasites have invaded, raped, tortured and murdered for profit. Still to this very day, those same elites proclaim to us the wonders of Christianity, Capitalism and Racialism. They have successfully exterminated entire categories of plants, trees, animals and other humans. They have been so triumphant in their wicked deeds that there is no turning back for our Earth. There is no hope for reconciliation.

European elites have solidified the concluding contract with Extinction. The Earth can never heal with any humans living upon it. All of us now possess the cultural mental infections from our recent past. Mass murder does have its price – extinction to extinction evermore.

Yet, the universe will eventually recycle the refuse again, so that other forms of life leading to death, can grow into their full substance.
