ARTISTIC MYTHOLOGY

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Artistic Mythology incorrectly attributes the statement, “Beware of artists….” to Queen Victoria.  Artists often consider themselves to be “revolutionaries” whom the wealthy and powerful “royalty” of Earth should fear.  So, they adopted this statement as a “battle cry” against tyranny of the state and persecution of the “artist”.

Factually, Queen Elizabeth,  did not make this statement, although she most likely shared the sentiment with her Uncle, King Leopold II of Belgium, who expressed it in a similar statement (below).   In reality, artists are seldom revolutionaries, and are the most likely to be paid whores and propagandists in service of  the “royal agenda”.  For example, how many Hollywood films have you seen that are threatening  to the rich and powerful, much less “revolutionary”?  (Answer = 0 )

(Leopold II — King of Belgium,  like Queen Victoria, were members of the self-appointed “royal family” who are Caucasian, Fascist, Imperialists.   Unfortunately, they are worshiped by the peasants, and glorified by artists, who empower them to invade, murder and enslave other people, life forms, property and natural resources of Earth for personal financial gain, power and control.)

ARTISTIC MYTHOLOGY

Leopold II (9 April 1835 – 17 December 1909) was the King of the Belgians, and is chiefly remembered for the founding and exploitation of the Congo Free State.  

Queen Victoria (24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India from 20 June 1837 until her death.

A letter to Queen Victoria of England  from her Uncle, The King of the Belgians, 10th October 1845:

“My Dearest Victoria, —

. . . All you say about our dear Albert, whom I love like my own child, is perfectly true. The attacks, however unjust, have but one advantage, that of showing the points the enemy thinks weakest and best calculated to hurt. This , being the case, Anson, without boring A. with daily accounts which in the end become very irksome, should pay attention to these very points, and contribute to avoid what may be turned to account by the enemy. To hop to escape censure and calumny is next to impossible, but whatever is considered by the enemy as a fit subject for attack is better modified or avoided. The dealings with artists, for instance, require great prudence; they are acquainted with all classes of society, and for that very reason dangerous; they are hardly ever satisfied, and when you have too much to do with them, you are sure to have des ennuis  (trouble) . . .Your devoted Uncle,Leopold R.”    (excerpt from “The Letters of Queen Victoria, a Selection from Her Majesty’s Correspondence Between the Years 1837 and 1861″)

MALE PERCEPTION OF FEMALES

Here is a video montage of Female Faces portrayed in paintings by Western (male) artists during the past 500 years. Although the faces portrayed were thought to be “beautiful” by the MEN who painted them, the reality of their “beauty” was very short-lived.  By the age of 18, most women were “middle-aged” and “matronly”  If a girl was not already married and bearing children by this time, her chances of surviving — in the lower economic classes  — were not very good.  The girl who was not “pretty enough” to be married was doomed to be supported by her father, or other family members, until she was “lucky” enough to find a husband, or until she died of old age or disease.  There were no “jobs” or “careers” for women outside the bedroom and household.

If Females had painted portraits woman during the 500 year period shown in this video, what would they look like?   Oh, but of course, females were not PERMITTED to paint… or read… or become educated… or go to school…. or discuss ideas in the presence of men.  During the 500 year period during which these portraits were being painted by MEN, the women being portrayed were really little more than slaves, who were literally the owned property of their fathers or husbands.  Women were expected to endure a life of child bearing, domestic drudgery and mind-numbing “female” work, like cleaning, washing, cooking, sewing, and having sex whenever their spouse demanded it of them (without any birth control, or abortion.)  So, in retrospect, I think we must realize that the male view of women has not really been very “beautiful”.

OSCAR THE MORNING AFTER

Oscar awakens the morning after another seedy one night stand with the Dandelion of Vanity

The Academy Awards are the unrivalled standard bearer and champion of vanity, self-glorification, self-promotion and self-importance.  No emperor or god or commercial enterprise in the history of humanity, with the possible exception of Pharaoh or Yahweh or the military, has every demanded and enforced upon the peasantry of the world the blatant and unabashed vanity of the Hollywood film industry.

The worshipful and obedient pandering  of the peasantry to the spectacle of  the annual Oscar Ceremony over the past 85 years is proof that slaves can be bought with aesthetics, just as the Roman Emperors placated the plebeians of Rome with free bread and gladiatorial battles in the arena.  Western civilization is carried on the shoulders of a peasantry who are all to easily averted from seeing the gory truth of  theft and slaughter that are hidden behind the crimson robes and golden statuary of bankers, emperors and wealthy business interests of the self-anointed royalty.

Let’s remember that the Hollywood film industry is a business.  It worships the gods of money…first, second, last and always.  It demands that you worship the gods of money and the aesthetic amusements they so skilfully offer to keep you in their game.  If you look behind the Hollywood curtain and follow the Yellow Brick Road to the motivational source of the parade of glitz and glamour you will discover that it is an illusion controlled by bankers, not artists. Bankers who control the artists, the emperors and the gods.  Bankers are the self-anointed emperors and would-be gods of planet Earth — as long as the peasantry allows them to be.
