Metropolis


By Ron Stephens:

Today,  as is in the movie Metropolis – 1927  – Fritz Lang, we find ourselves engaged in psychological and spiritual warfare.

Meet Moloch at the 14 minute mark!

Metropolis is a  good depiction of the modern world controlled by the same elitism.

The city looks eerily similar to the sustainable cities they are building around us today. High density, light rail transit and continued slavery.

 

In John Milton‘s Paradise Lost (1667), Moloch is one of the greatest warriors of the fallen angels,

“First MOLOCH, horrid King besmear’d with blood
Of human sacrifice, and parents tears,
Though, for the noyse of Drums and Timbrels loud,
Their children’s cries unheard that passed through fire
To his grim Idol. Him the AMMONITE
Worshipt in RABBA and her watry Plain,
In ARGOB and in BASAN, to the stream
Of utmost ARNON. Nor content with such
Audacious neighbourhood, the wisest heart
Of SOLOMON he led by fraud to build
His Temple right against the Temple of God
On that opprobrious Hill, and made his Grove
The pleasant Vally of HINNOM, TOPHET thence
And black GEHENNA call’d, the Type of Hell.”

He is listed among the chief of Satan‘s angels in Book I, and is given a speech at the parliament of Hell in Book 2:43 – 105, where he argues for immediate warfare against God. He later becomes revered as a pagan god on Earth.

Environmentalism is Pagan earth worship being implemented at the local municipal level. The guidebook is Untied Nations Agenda 21. Environmentalism is;  Worship of the creation instead of the Creator.  God died, was killed, in the mid 19th century to allow science to become the “new religion” As long as God was alive ecology could not exist.

As social or political allegory

In Bertrand Russell‘s A Free Man’s Worship (1903), Moloch is used to describe a particularly savage brand of religion:

The savage, like ourselves, feels the oppression of his impotence before the powers of Nature; but having in himself nothing that he respects more than Power, he is willing to prostrate himself before his gods, without inquiring whether they are worthy of his worship. Pathetic and very terrible is the long history of cruelty and torture, of degradation and human sacrifice, endured in the hope of placating the jealous gods: surely, the trembling believer thinks, when what is most precious has been freely given, their lust for blood must be appeased, and more will not be required. The religion of Moloch — as such creeds may be generically called — is in essence the cringing submission of the slave, who dare not, even in his heart, allow the thought that his master deserves no adulation. Since the independence of ideals is not yet acknowledged, Power may be freely worshipped, and receive an unlimited respect, despite its wanton infliction of pain.
