Social justice? How our politicians could learn from a 6th Century BC king
I have a book called Heritage of Evidence in the British Museum, which details many items from the Old World which confirm the accuracy and authenticity of the Biblical record.
One which particularly captures my interest is known as the Cyrus Cylinder, a clay barrel-shaped object inscribed in cuneiform. It tells of the wickedness of Nabonidus, the last king of Babylon and how Cyrus took the city in 539 BC without shedding blood.
The King merged his own Persian empire with the Babylonian empire, which confirms the record in the book of Daniel.
New Labour people often use words like ‘progressive’, but I reckon King Cyrus was far more modernising regarding social inclusion and religious freedom.
The word ‘progressive‘ just means “moving forward; advancing” and as such can be used to try and justify any political idea, because people equate ‘progression’ with ‘improvement’ which can be a con trick.
The words of Cyrus are considered by some to be the World’s first declaration of human rights and seem much fairer than a modern politician’s ideas of what is right.
In today’s Britain, religious people are under increasing pressure to become secular. Cyrus freed the people of all religions and actually helped them rebuild their shrines and temples.
Cyrus abolished unpaid labour and denial of social standing, while in Britain, the taxation and benefits system encourages people on low wages to go cap in hand to the government. They have created an underclass with no social standing (but who know how to claim ‘entitlements’!)
I know which system sounds better to me!
Some people thought the Biblical account of Cyrus was a fairytale until the discovery of the Cylinder in the 19th Century proved it to be true.
Here’s what the Bible says:
1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
2 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah.
3 Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem.
And from the Cyrus Cylinder:
I am Cyrus, king of the universe, the great king, the powerful king, king of Babylon, king of Sumer and Akkad, king of the four quarters of the world, son of Cambyses…
My vast troops marched peaceably in Babylon, and the whole of [Sumer] and Akkad had nothing to fear. I sought the welfare of the city of Babylon and all its sanctuaries. As for the population of Babylon who had endured a yoke, I soothed their weariness, I freed them from their bonds…. I brought relief to their dilapidated dwellings, putting (thus) an end to their (main) complaints…. I sent back to their sanctuaries across the river Tigris – whose shrines had earlier become dilapidated – the gods who lived therein, and made permanent sanctuaries for them. I collected together all of their people and returned them to their settlements…. I returned them unharmed to their cells, in the sanctuaries that make them happy.
Cyrus pretty much ruled the known civilised world at the time and so if he wanted to be nice – or nasty, that was his prerogative. He’d still be keen to fight bloody wars with his enemies, no doubt! However today, the people who rule the world – call them the ‘elite’, the ‘global cabal’, the ‘New World Order’, the ‘military-industrial complex’ or the ‘Illuminati’ – aren’t so keen on helping out the common people.
Today, across what was once known as the civilised world, or Christendom, is ruled, not by a benevolent king, but by a small number of powerful families who can influence national governments through their interests in the media, industry, banking, academia, royalty and so on.
That’s why it doesn’t matter if you vote Labour, Tory or Lib Dem. Voting Democrat or Republican also makes little real difference because they all will follow what the globalists want because they themselves are hungry for power and want to catch a few crumbs from the elite’s table.
If you’ve ever wondered why the same things are simultaneously happening in Britain, Canada, the USA, Australia and Europe, like all the rights, equality and diversity legislation being steamrollered through parliaments and the anti-freedom laws supposedly made to protect us all from the ‘terrorists’ then it’s because it is being globally orchestrated.
New Labour wants the people to believe that the unelected Lords are the enemy of ‘democracy’, but the House of Lords regularly votes to safeguard the freedoms that our elected ‘representatives’ want to deny us.
The political representatives (or ‘leaders’ as they like to call themselves) we have today are shaping up like Nabonidus, the wicked king that Cyrus deposed.
By continuing to elect the LibLabCon Party we are simply handing our freedom to the globalist social engineers on a silver platter.
