Yaldabaoth, Dracul, Sophia and The Brave New World

Yaldabaoth, Dracul, Sophia and The Brave New World

British MP Renfield R. Renfield was discussing with his former employer (and current landlord) the billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set the curious political situation unfolding in Canada.

The Justin Trudeau Liberals had introduced into the House of Commons in Ottawa today an $82 billion bailout package to help the Canadian economy cope with the financial and economic fallout from the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

But included in the bill was emergency Financial Powers legislation that would grant Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau (or whoever was named Canada’s Finance Minister) power to raise or lower taxes as well as abolish taxes or establish new taxes until December 2021 without having to seek the approval of Parliament first.

Ignoring Patrick Henry’s statement that “Taxation without representation is tyranny” and George III’s desire to do just that to the American colonies led to the American Revolution.

The leaders of both major Opposition parties in the Canadian House of Commons- Federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and Federal New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh while approving of the $82 billion aid package for Canadians did not approve of the Federal Financial powers legislation that would give the Federal Finance Minister carte blanche to rule the Canadian economy by dictatorial fiat.

Therefore they threatened to defeat the bill and being a minority government, the Trudeau Liberals were forced to withdraw it.

However the Trudeau ass kissing sycophants in most of the mainstream Canadian media such as CBC, CTV and Canadian Global News were presenting the news story in such a way as to give Canadian TV news viewers the idea that the Federal Conservatives and the Federal New Democrats were being heartless in wanting to hold up a $82 billion financial aid package that would help ordinary Canadians who were being laid off and losing their income in such extraordinary times.

But the trouble lay with the sneaky and underhanded Canadian Federal Liberals (who had always been sneaky and underhanded ever since the days of Prime Minister William Lyon MacKenzie King – a Canadian Liberal Prime Minister in the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s) who were trying to sneak in dictatorial powers to Canada’s finance minister which were an affront to representative democracy.

But the Canadian media just went along with the dystopian brave new world the Trudeau Liberals were hoping to create.

Today the Canadian government started running ads featuring Dr. Theresa Tam Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer telling Canadians the simple measures they could take to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Normally Government of Canada ads for the past 40 years always ended with a professional announcer saying “Brought to you by the Government of Canada”.

Today a Calgary based geopolitical analyst friend of Renfield clearly heard Justin Trudeau’s voice at the end of the ad saying, “Brought to you by the Government of Canada.”

So Justin was now becoming the voice of an Orwellian Big Brother in Canadian government advertising.

A Canadian Goebbels doing his own voice narration in the midst of a dystopian apocalyptic disaster film reality TV show.

As Renfield remarked to Set, “This pandemic will finally see totalitarian despots who have been in the closet finally coming out of the closet as the rest of the population are told to stay in their homes.”

. . .

Donald Trump meanwhile was telling a Trump ass kissing sycophant from Fox News that he hoped to see every American business establishment currently closed finally open for business by Easter.

“In other words, an American resurrection,” the Trump ass kissing sycophant from Fox News beamed like a moron in ecstasy on Ecstasy.

“Doesn’t that mean an American Crucifixion will have to happen first?” Thought Yaldabaoth the Irish leprechaun who was currently residing in a rustic country farm house in the American state of Vermont and watching the interview on television.

. . .

Meanwhile Yaldabaoth’s mother Sophia the Greco-Egyptian gnostic goddess of wisdom was standing on a rustic country road in southern Italy.

“Ciao, bella,” Dracul Van Helsing greeted her.

“Dracul,” Sophia was shocked, “Aren’t you ignoring what the WHO has to say about social distancing?”.

“I apologize,” Dracul answered, “That was a spontaneous reaction to when I first saw you just now. If Justin Trudeau finds out about this, he’ll be painting his face to look like mine.”

    but sum times you absoooooooooooo lute( ly) lets drift away with them harps and violins weeping for moment, SUCK.
    EVEN you suck as a writer.
    But at least you are a real writer. And a good one. Otherwise… ME of ALL people would NEVER bother.
    Do what u do.

    I will most likely never comment again so count yourself blessed.

      Occasionally I’m like the movie making Marx Brothers of the 1930s.

      I do shtick in times of trouble and crisis (like the Marx Brothers did in the decade of the Great Depression).

      That’s probably why Groucho Marx (the shtickiest of the Marx Brothers) was inspired to say, “I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me for a member.”

      • daemontine said,

        I preferred Harpo to Groucho when ever I last saw the Marx brothers…
        In any case I do love reading your work. πŸ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I’ve always liked Harpo myself.

        My character of Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster is modeled on Harpo.

        A silent type who never says anything and communicates through pantomime.

        He also plays the harp.

        And playing the harp underwater is quite the feat.

        A Romanian writer I met on WordPress who lives in Berlin, Germany and used to blog on WP, Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster was her favourite character.

        In fact, she confessed to having a crush on him.

        So I thought it was interesting that my character of a silent lobster who played the harp underwater had enough pesonality that one of my readers (a writer herself) developed a crush on him.

      • daemontine said,

        I definitely need to catch up. I am a new reader. But what happened the nite I found your work(s) really, and truly mattered to me. My first critique of course omitted that. As well as it was sloppy and almost breathless.
        Harpo… (that brother) didn’t just play the harp. No one just “plays” the harp. No one “chooses” the harp.
        So… now, It’s all about Alice Coltrane and Harpo, right? They are incredible musicians. Not a simple mime or a mere wife.
        That all being said, I have always, altho rarely, enjoyed eating lobster. πŸ™‚
        Thanks for the follow back. I do look forward to you, in particular.

      • daemontine said,

        But… um.. that being said… I didn’t mean I wanted to feed off U. I just meant… I was sooooooooooo happy to read your work.
        I sum times wanna eat U, but I promise I will behave. I love your writing. I am grateful for the discovery and the relief and the challenge U do present… and yet still U are polite. I would never be described as polite. I admire U.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thank you very much. πŸ™‚

        And Michelangelo 🦞hopes you won’t eat him either. πŸ˜‚

      • daemontine said,

        hmmm… I’m pretty sure our dear Michelangelo never told YOU (in particular) that (about me)
        I mean, we’ve painted ceilings together after all…
        but so…
        I am sorry for my long absence…
        I am gonna read YOU soon and I am far behind. To my own regret.
        Was much to do about nothing.
        But I had to do it. πŸ™‚
        I adore U Dracul very cool Van Helsing…

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thanks. πŸ™‚

      • daemontine said,

        Hey… not that it actually matters to U, but I apologize for my arrogance. I am not a better writer than you, but I think some of your current corona virus writing is all outlines and yes, you post often and write daily, and it would be better if fleshed out. But what would I know? U have many follows and likes and fans… Maybe that’s enuff theses days.
        Again, apologies for my arrogance. I am entirely arrogant. Willingly arrogant.
        And if I ever did eat Michelangelo, it would just be his finger tips.

      • daemontine said,

        Last word (not a promise but rather my hope) Lotta people feed off my work, and always have and that’s ok. I am flattered. U know? ‘Cuz They can’t do what I can, no matter how hard they try.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Your writing style reminds me of a southern U.S. novelist Flannery O’ Connor and an Alberta author W.O. Mitchell.

        And definitely not many can write like they or you can.

        As for my writing, I am the shadow that vanishes with the onset of night.
        Not that I make any appearances in the sun.

      • daemontine said,

        That’s a pretty nice thing for U to say to me. When I was a Sophomore in college, my literature teacher said we could write essays about our reading or write new endings to their short stories as long as it maintained their voice. Flannery O’Connor was who I kept writing new endings for. Then my literature teacher wanted me to prove I could write an essay. So I did that. I wrote about Earnest Hemingway compared to Edgar Allen Poe. Then I dropped his class second semester so I could take painting. He took that personal, and even tho I was his “star” student he gave me a friggin’ “B” grade. But then he felt guilty at the end of the year, and offered to buy a painting I did! He was the only self-defined pacifist I ever met. Anyhow, that’s my Flannery O’Connor story. πŸ™‚
        I will have to read me sum W.O. Mitchell. I looked up his books, but nary a one have I read. Thanks for the recommendation.
        You’re a good writer, Christopher. You are. Not simply a vanishing shadow.
        I believe U know that about yourself, and are simply behaving like a gentleman. Which is also kinda sweet.
        Anyhow… U have certainly tolerated me long enuff.
        Do what U do.
        Never mind me.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        W.O. Mitchell’s best known novel is a book called Who Has Seen The Wind?

        Jake and The Kid is also another of his best known works.

      • daemontine said,

        But just so U know, my tendencies to Tell about the American South, is ‘cuz I spent time in Alabama. It was worth it, altho somewhat traumatizing. πŸ™‚
        My Canadian connections are mostly Kelowna B.C. another remarkable source of inspiration.
        Ok… thanks for taking the time U did with me.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I thought you had spent time in the American south since you seemed to have captured the southern nuances of talking in your characters’ diagogue quite well.

        Kelowna BC.

        That’s where my descent into Hell began back in 2009.

        I attended a family wedding there in August of 2009.

        It was the wedding from Hell almost literally.

        Then less than a year later my dad would be dead from cancer.

        And I’d be fighting with my siblings over his estate.

        By June 2014, his Estate would finally be settled but by that time, the crooked Estate lawyer would have absconded with most of the money.

        The little pittance I was left with had run out by June 2016 and by the end of July 2016, I was homeless.

        I was finally starting to get my life back on track and then this pandemic hit.

        I guess I really can’t blame Kelowna BC for that except it was the place where my descent into Hell began and I haven’t really come out since.

      • daemontine said,

        Um, my dear Christopher, beyond all means and beyond all means YES, U may depict and blame Kelowna for being Hell. YES U can and should and will.
        I am sorry U R facing the crooks. AD BC Here and Now.
        Are U ok?
        Can I help?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Glad to hear it wasn’t just my imagination when I thought of Kelowna as Hell.

        I’m doing okay now, thanks.

      • daemontine said,

        Kelowna is “Bryan Adams” still wearing his sunglasses at nite. Yes. But it grows really really really good peaches. πŸ™‚
        Glad U R ok.

      • daemontine said,

        Um, I need to correct that, It’s Corey Hart wearing his sunglasses at nite, Bryan Adams is still living the summer of 69, and it seems like John Melencamp will be forever singing about Jack and Diane.
        And yet, Kelowna still grows really really really good peaches!
        Much love and peace to U.
        Thanks for allowing my comments.
        I am glad U R writing. U R a good witness.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I like all 3 of those songs.

        Summer of 69 is my favourite of the 3.

      • daemontine said,

        LOL! Hmmm… Well, then maybe Kelowna is your kind of hell after all? πŸ˜‰ They get a lot of radio play and it seems like being in a time warp.

      • daemontine said,

        Hi Christopher, on a more important note… and I do feel I should say this in honor of your father’s historical works, Kelowna (now we must wonder about the origin of the name, ‘cuz it’s “indian”) was all white when I learned of it… and they (the white people that love Corey Hart) hated “indians” or rather the indigenous people that they stole the land from. The Tribes of Canada have been entirely raped.
        So… I didn’t mean to make light of anything. There is a love of Hershey bars from the USA and a loathing of filtered cigarettes from the USA that Kelowna is proud of. It is not a diverse place. IT has no diversity. It is entirely privileged, or entitled… and they bitch about government and health care as much as anyone. I could go on, but then I’d have to tell U about how Kermit the Frog was speaking in french. It’s no good I tell U.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Kelowna was the most congested city of cars I ever came across.

        It seemed to be even worse than traffic jams in Vancouver.

        To say nothing of the Best Western (actually Worst Western) Hotel in West Kelowna not cleaning the room and making the beds when we came home from the wedding.

        Kelowna seemed to be a city made up of spoiled rich brats I noticed when I was there.

      • daemontine said,

        Well, yeah it is full of rich white people. I didn’t stay in motels or hotels. I stayed in rich people’s homes who had horses and farms… and tended gardens and they were very nice beautiful houses. But it was easy to be rich there, really… coming from humble means and putting on appearances. Didn’t mean they didn’t have skill or talent, but they were/are kinda like the American South. Not college educated… not at all feminist or progressive. They feel entitled. They like cars and rely on gas/oil and they like to drink. Kelowna is drunk white people with money… vodka seems to be favored… as are strong unfiltered cigarettes…but after it displaced the indigenous people, it was farms, and then later malls started encroaching.
        I don’t blame the horses… And the peaches are divine.
        I’m glad I spent time there and met the people I did. They were kind to me… at the time, taking me in as a kid… but the residual effect is ultimately gruesome. Totally post traumatic stress. And I think very useful for writing all in all… if one wants to make sense of it all.

      • daemontine said,

        I guess I should say, Kelowna is a “gated community” if ever a whole place could be one. It’s all about ownership. But it’s like when “trailer trash” win the lottery. I s’pose the t.v. show Beverly Hillbillies tried to s’plain such things, albeit grotesque and mostly unwatchable…
        Anyhow… thanks for helping me drum up sum old vibes. Maybe I’ll write again soon too. πŸ™‚

      • daemontine said,

        Ok, I just realized… Kelowna is a bunch of gold diggers. Like women who just go for the money not the love.
        So maybe yes, “spoiled brats” as U say.
        I apologize for my 3 comments, instead of one about this. But, U got me thinking! πŸ™‚
        Much love and peace to U and yours Christopher.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Have a great day ahead. πŸ™‚

      • daemontine said,

        I feel truly inspired and fortunate to have NO idea what that “Have a great day ahead. πŸ™‚” comment of yours means!!! I have unfollowed YOU appropriately and detached U from my follows as well. Best of luck cool Dracula.

      • daemontine said,

        Sorry to hear about your Dad. I have had to help a lot of people at end of life. Many of them had cancer. IT SUCKS. I feel u on that.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, cancer is a dreadful disease.

        It took him just as he was halfway through writing the 2nd volume of a 3-volume History of Western Canada he was planning to write.

      • daemontine said,

        Well, half way up the mountain, doesn’t mean he didn’t strike gold. He has probably left you an infinite amount to draw from? Including what plans he had that weren’t completed… There’s a lot of space you can use in someone’s absence.
        Or maybe you finish what he started?
        I dunno… but I’m glad you are writing and your comments to me have been very generous.
        I will keep on reading your work. And am your fan.

      • daemontine said,

        Um… and another thing, I already know I’m a better writer than U. sweet Dracul. And Oh how I want you to turn your outlines into prose… because YOU can. You’re almost there.. But I am flattered for when U do copy me and feed.

      • daemontine said,

        I forgot to say, that I think the sign of a good writer is one that can make me laugh. Your work is consistently good at doing that. So not only do you take an unsolicited (poorly written) crit well, you’re funny. Thanks for that.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You’re welcome. πŸ™‚

  2. Hyperion said,

    It appears one of Justin Truedope’s followers is pissed by your geopolitical commentary on The true threat to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Some do hate to be exposed in the light of wisdom. I had no idea how much The Demobrats had influenced the rise to power of the Libertine Fascist in Canada. Well, who knew that Fancy Piglosi and Alexandriass Ocassional Cotex were breeding in Canada?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      And now Daniel, the Government of Canada is running ads telling parents not to leave their cannabis candied edibles (many in the shape of cute looking little gummy bears) lying around the house in these times of social isolation and home quarantine in case their small children pick them up and eat them.

      Apparently weed is doing a booming business in these times of people working at home and staying home.

      One company Aurora Cannabis (which totally overexpanded its stores after the legalization of marijuana in autumn 2018) was facing bankruptcy a couple of months ago and now it’s totally in the black since it was the first cannabis company to offer home delivery of weed and other cannabis products.

      • Hyperion said,

        The new billionaires are those who can comfort the Corona fear live liquor and THC sales in inventive and clever ways. For instance cheap scotch can be sold as manly mouth wash. Gone are the days where all you needed was a rather large bootie to gain market share and TV fame.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Booties are out.

        Pot is in.

      • Hyperion said,

        Putting pot in the bootie is next unless we have an intervention by Sherrielock Holmes to whip the bootie pot stuffers into some sense.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Maybe they can offer a reduced sentence to Harvey Weeneystain if he agrees to help medical science and volunteer to be the first to receive a pot enema to study its possible effects in combatting the Coronavirus.

      • Hyperion said,

        I think it’s a wonderful idea. His a$$ will finally be useful.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And as they’re shoving that pot enema up Weeneystain’s muckchute, they can have Sir Elton John singing in the background, “It’s no sacrifice at all…”

      • Hyperion said,

        I think Elton would add real class to the act.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, he would. πŸ˜€

    The Irish leprechaun may be on to something. But nothing to worry about: it will involve only the elderly and disabled and anyone else who may be affected by a horrendous bug that can be banished by plain old soap and water. Go figure…

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Trump’s logic (or lack thereof) seems to follow the reasoning of the rulers of the brave new world in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World where the elderly are done away with and the reasoning of Adolf Hitler who selected the disabled as the first group to be done away with in the brave new world Third Reich he was trying to build.

  4. Jessica said,

    I hate political drama. I’m extreme sleepy right and I worry I won’t get a good sleep. 😁 But in times like this Dracul personality shines.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you for the lovely compliment, Jessica. πŸ˜€

      Glad to hear that my personality shines bright in these troubled times. πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•―

      Hopefully “bright like a diamond” πŸ’Ž as Rihanna might put it in a song. 🎢

  5. David Redpath said,

    It’s going to be a brave new world
    after covid-19, Chris. Governments
    of the world, all broke. A new and
    empowered United Nations. A big
    move to the cashless economy.
    Mass unemployment, as surviving
    businesses streamline. Food
    shortages due to agricultural slow
    down and manufacturing reductions.
    Thank goodness we have the very
    best politicians money can buy to
    oversee all that’s coming down 😱

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      To oversee a world where no one has any money. 😱

      • David Redpath said,

        That’s always been the Fabian
        Socialist plan. No Collateral…
        No Sovereignty. And most people
        think their national government is
        already bankrupt due to the stupidity
        and economic mismanagement
        of their leaders …. Ha!
        There’s going to be a huge bill
        to pay at the end of all this.
        Or should I say … just the start.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And the ultimate thing you need to give as your down payment is… your soul. πŸ˜±πŸ‘»πŸ˜ˆ
