Elon’s Mark of the Beast
How online tribal identification and reactionary contrarianism perpetuates animalistic ignorance.
On the last Break The Rules, esoteric “information trafficker” Drutang returned to speak about Elon Musk being a false idol pushed on the public to accept an eventual one world government through linking up with his AI Neuralink.
And while his predictions are more on the esoteric side which fellow guests Ben Avery and Gnostic Informant were open minded towards, we can already see elements of this today in “Marks of the Beast” through which more people are designating their tribal affiliation.
While an obvious connection can be made with the social credit system in China where Musk’s gigafactory produces the “highest quality Teslas”, this mark from the New Testament's Book of Revelation can broadly apply to any identification required to buy and sell.
Today, this identification comes down to whether you’re in the designated establishment or “anti establishment” group with neither offering nuance or a path that makes sense without reference to the other. Both of these unfortunate choices contain good and bad elements, but the Mark of the Beast really kicks in through cultivating these bad elements by doing the opposite of whatever your tribal opponent does, even if it happens to be good.
In the end, ignorance takes over and you cease to be a thinking individual. Perfect for whatever AI technocracy may be headed our way.
Elon Musk on Russia VS Ukraine
But before looking too much into the future, the biggest and most important example of this tribal marking at present has to do with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and how those against the establishment end up in the opposite position due to not wanting to “Support the Current Thing”.
Elon Musk fits into this dynamic by advocating for appeasement through giving up Ukrainian border territories in the name of peace. Without any additional information concerning Russia it makes sense why this is such a clear cut answer for those who consider themselves to be on Musk’s side against the hawkish establishment.
Though as a reminder to these people, the whole problem has to do with any peace treaty Putin were to sign not being worth the paper it’s written on, since after taking a break to lick his wounds, he’ll continue grabbing as much land as we allow him to.
As Euromaiden Press pointed out in relation to the polls Musk conducted on his “Ukraine Russia Peace Plans”:
“Let’s imagine that Russia wins in Ukraine, as he proposes: Ukraine abandons NATO aspirations and Russia keeps occupying the territories it stole from Ukraine. Under these conditions, Ukraine will be largely cut off from the sea, and Russia would continue its aggression and gradually turn Ukraine into a client state like Belarus.
This would allow Russia to get stronger, more powerful, and have more potential to attack not only Ukraine but other countries in the vicinity, as it would be emboldened by the West’s refusal to defend the values of self-determination and freedom it proclaims fundamental to democracy, and Ukraine’s resistance to this authoritarian horde would be undermined.”
That Musk included Crimea as a part of Russia in his peace plan due to it having been so since 1783 begs the question… why not also include Poland or the Baltic States which were incorporated into the Russian Empire around the same time?
Furthermore, Musk using a 2012 map of Ukraine to justify the proposed peace split due to half of it being pro-Russia ignores the dynamics of voter fraud and suppression as well as the very different reality of the time compared to the 2014 Maidan Revolution (not to mention the 2022 Russian invasion).
Such a world view does not necessarily have to stem from secret Russian loyalty, but is very likely shaped by how the other side reacts in opposition to everything else Musk happens to say.
One recent example of this has been a media pushback against Musk criticizing the New York Times article which excused South African Communist politician Julius Malema for singing “Kill the Boer!” And because any discussions of anti-white racism or South African farm murders are tossed under the rug by Musk’s media opponents, anything this same group might say which is true regarding the Russia Ukraine war is automatically discarded as enemy propaganda.
Such “enemy propaganda” includes the assertion that Musk’s friendship with fellow investor David Sacks influences his geopolitical decisions due to Sacks’s commitment to the appeasement of Russia. Another would be criticizing Musk for threatening to stop supplying Ukraine with his Starlink after a Kyiv diplomat told him to “fuck off.” as well as allegedly restricting the use of Starlink for controlling drones in the region.
Genius and Ignorance
But this would not be the first time in history that someone of Elon Musk’s intellectual level or higher has been deceived. We can go back to Albert Einstein who fell head over heels for a Stalinist spy months after the US created its first nuclear weapon, and it is still not known what possible US secrets a love stricken Einstein could have divulged.
And in a comparison having to do less with love and more with prejudice, Musk replied in a complementing way about Mel Gibson’s physique to a tweet which proposed a choice between hating “the Js” (Jews) or doing Adrenochrome, a long time staple within online memetic lore as a chemical compound extracted from child sacrifice which gives powers to “the elites”.
While there’s no evidence for this chemical having any such potency, the practice of gaining power through child sacrifice can historically be linked to the Phonecians engaging in similar practices which were very much forbidden in the Torah. Despite this, Jewish people have been on the receiving end of the antisemitic blood libel conspiracy that this tweet highlights instead of focusing on figures actually engaging in (mock) blood rituals and cozy with all sorts of celebrities like the Serbian “Scarlet Woman” Marina Abramovic.
So it is disappointing that someone with more cultural responsibility like Musk would let that remark slide. This is not to say that the alternative should be getting woke policed over anything slightly edgy, but for many younger men who feel demoralized and accused of being “Nazis” for disagreeing with leftist ideology, at a certain point it becomes “I’ll show you Nazi…”
Though just like with Einstein and his weakness for Soviet lady spies, we have examples of genius innovators whose Jew hatred was without question like Henry Ford who published “The International Jew” in his acquired newspaper “The Dearborn Independent” and was mentioned by name in Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”.
Another figure of note who was even more of Nazi than Ford was real life SS Nazi Wernher Von Braun who developed America’s space program. As Drutang mentioned, Von Braun also happened to write a Sci Fi book where a technocratic leader of Mars was interestingly known by the title of “Elon”. That Von Braun was also a friend of rocket genius Jack Parsons who was a disciple of “The Great Beast 666” Aleister Crowley shows us something very important about human nature.
Rejecting the Mark of The Beast
The cultural figures which we neatly place in the category of good VS bad is a form of idol worship that forces us to accept everything about this figure’s world view if we want to stay in the right tribe. This is despite the above examples where many of our world icons are much more complicated and despite their greatness in one area, can be deluded in another.
That such tribalization ignores these nuances and leads to hatred and blind obedience is the true mark of the beast, as it makes unthinking beasts out of individuals.
The right way out is to hold nobody as a cult of personality and instead encourage the good qualities while condemning the bad. Some like in relation to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine may not be obvious at first, which is especially why there should be communication with those from the opposite side of the issue no matter how much you may like someone such as Elon Musk.
Perhaps paving such a message forward can have far reaching effects, especially when so far very few people have attempted to break the Mark of the Beast and release otherwise brilliant people from their echo-chamber.
