Cultural Renewal: Specific Aims and Goals
- A quick perusal of much of what they refer to as the ‘New Poetry’ is enough evidence to show that those who are involved in it are under such a strong influence that, if we analyze it, we would discover that it stands in opposition to the Arab-Islamic culture that is the distinct spirit of our aesthetic personality across the ages. This makes their writings unacceptable.
High Council for the Supervision of Arts and Humanities in Egypt
- What the Committee for Poetry observed is not delimited to what is published in Egypt. On the contrary, it has become a general imprint of the works of proselytizers of renewal across the Arab world. – Ahmad Muhammad Ali [i]
- The ultimate agenda was that of putting political, economic, cultural and educational institutions in place through which the Judeo-Christian Europeans could continue to transform such colonial territories even after decolonization took place. The transformation was meant to secularize society through a process of dismantling all institutions which provided sustenance for the religious way of life in general and for the way of life of Islam in particular. – Shaykh Imran N. Hosein [ii]
- Western civilization is aiming at nothing less than the incorporation of all of mankind in a single great society and the control of everything in the earth, air and sea … – Arnold Toynbee, Civilization on Trial, p. 166.
In concert with Egypt’s High Council and Shaykh Hosein’s admonition, the specific goal of the present generation should be to counteract the concerted impositions of (a) Western litterateurs, (b) propaganda savants, (c) brainwashed academics and (d) muliti-media channels; all of which are saturated with demeaning sub-cultural themes and memes. Using sustainable urban or rural renewal developments as working models and practical venues, ASEANS should stimulate multi-disciplinary, non-monetized approaches to relations between various institutions in order to establish effective measures to stem the tide of cultural degeneration. Limited non-monetized exchange systems are indeed viable but it is a question of will rather than ways and means.
There is also a need to promote collaborative interdisciplinary research with a view towards synthesis while simultaneously seeking avenues for practical implementation. This must involve academic, governmental, NGO and business organizations across all social strata. The aspirations of most indigenous people are consistent with trans-ASEAN cultural mores’, which lamentably are being sedulously eroded by Western impositions:
- “…Biar mati anak, jangan mati adat, meaning ‘let your own child die but not the adat’. It means that if your own son is found guilty, let the adat or the law sentence him or forgive him, but do not kill or amend the adat or law… it must be based on the Quran or the syariah.” – Dato Dr. Hasan Ahmad
To the degree it is possible, this writer suggests the re-establishment of such constructs by drawing on the gestalt ASEAN adat  to the exclusion of secularized Western impositions. These latter especially include modified ‘Common’ and Maritime’ codes that highly favor Rome’s ancient forms of legal enslavement via entitlement. I refer here to the Rentier mentality of elite privilege-mongers which includes the self-centered irresponsibility inherent with absentee landlord-ship and that of corporations who favor monetized profitability rather than social equanimity and public health in their realms of operation.
Increasingly also, these imposed legal codes liberally deny the application and enforcement of moral directives drawn from conventional oriental wisdom: those pools of social mores’ that adhere to universally applicable divine revelation. Like natives who use skin whiteners, the adat of tradition is abandoned in favor of Jacobin illusion and the boy-scout medals that accompany Romanist champions of Rotary and Golf Clubs.
All of the above exacerbate not only social chaos but environmental degradation, both of which are antithetical forces that that undermine civilized behavior and sustainable development. Hence, the following specific measure are recommended to tip the scales in favor of not only reason, but also justice.
- 1) Encourage dialogue between apposite institutions across regional and cultural borders for mutual benefit and the creation of vested professional relations based on common needs and mutual reciprocity. This will engender greater regional understanding, cooperation, prosperity and autonomy.
There are rising needs and interests in multidisciplinary studies due to various influences flowing from the process of globalization. We must replace the construct of Globalism with that of constructs that favor the gestalt synthesis that enables Cosmopolitan consciousness rather than pluralist fancies. The disciplines of anthropology, geography, history, political science, sociology and urban studies, of eco cum aesthetic-sensitive urban planning and architecture, of sustainable business management and agronomy etc., all require a more systematic synthesis with other natural and applied sciences in order to efficiently harness collective knowledge and harmonize economies, human resources and communal environments throughout the region.
- 2) Facilitate comparative social and cultural studies with a view towards extracting what is useful for communal and cultural renewal in addition to sustainable developments in urban, sub-urban, industrial and rural communities.
Comparative studies attend to growing needs that arise from increasing regional and international influences. Trans-national migrant flows of peoples, goods and ideas require analytics that subsume monetary interests rather than exalt them in order to sift through the chaos of colonial and neo-colonial influences erode the keen edge of authentic identities and social exchanges, howsoever these interfaces manifest. Epistemological definition and empirical clarity will help distinguish useful from dysfunctional or misguiding constructs such as ‘McDonalds Health’ food for example. Hence, improved decision making for the beneficially good-governance that expounds and assures morally imbued business approaches and fiscal management will then enable the growth of cosmopolitan-oriented socio-cultural relations. As it is, the cronyized approach of back-scratchers and sycophancy that presently reigns mimics that of the Yakuzza or Triad Chiefs who literally command the streets.
- 3) Develop methodologies and frameworks for research and development in harmony with cultural sensitivities and extant resources that allow for sustainable mutual exchanges as a regional priority;
Since the systematic synthesis of multi-disciplinary and -cultural approaches to problem solving for urban, industrial and rural developments is new ground, a multi-disciplinary, non-occidental ‘think-tank’ approach is required that calls for periodic workshops wherein issues arising from both comparative and intra-disciplinary studies may be tabled for debate and thereafter prepared for public review and governmental scrutiny. The elitist hegemony of Internationalist corporatocracy with its parliaments of half-educated pseudo-representation is thereby superseded by regional transparency and authentic meritocracy, that is of course, providing feudal tyrants such as Sarawak’s infamous dictator are cowed by accountability to a learned Council of Elders (Shura) backed by united constituencies rather than wooed by the fawning lackeys of special interests.
- 4) Create venues that provide avenues of approach to government and private sector entrepreneurs with a view to apply constructs and methods that are sustainably beneficial for all peoples concerned.
Traditionally, the interface between governors and entrepreneurs leaves substantial room for corruptions that ignore real needs of both the governed and environment; especially when investors are alien or absentee. Hence, regular conferences are called for wherein these parties will be introduced to sound principles of sustainably developed inter-communal relations based on empirical evidence and conclusions drawn from comparative analysis in concert with hard science whenever and however appropriate. These will be public forums where closed-door ‘think-tank’ measures are revealed in order to remove the veil and allow for the ‘transparency’ that is increasingly in demand; and this is in lieu of the traditional corporate fascism inherited from mercantile colonialists that now reigns and gives cause for eruptions of grass-root reactions such an approach would buffer.
- 5) Establish alternatives to sweatshop economies that benefit international conglomerates who lack empathetic concerns for exploited communities:
A new approach is called for that requires replacing contemporary monetized mindsets and impositions spawned by the above mentioned legalized facilities that favor miserly intentions. Maximizing profits with impunity is essentially an anti-social, hegemonic and brutally cruel management system for human resources. In addition, the present stock-market system is little more than a gambling den that favors the ‘house’ as devised by shylocks (‘Jews who are not Jews’). Hence, this Cultural Revival calls for renewed approaches to economic and industrial models wherein ‘human dignity’ and ‘plural communalism’ rather than cooperative socialism favoring elitist Cominterns are guiding phrases.
- 6) Devise roadmaps for extra-governmental communal policing systems that are backed by authorities who enforce moral imperatives that protect men, women and children from inhumane exploitation:
The advent of Western monetization policies wherein fiat money is the god of human negotiation is a specific Talmudic means of subversion by means of usury/riba. This is clearly outlined in the infamous Protocols of Zion and has wrought the complete turnabout of traditional social orders globally as planned by the perfidious scoundrels—men and women who ‘burrow’ in their iniquitous plans as per Al’Qur’an. Accompanying this insidious construct is the Machiavellian ‘the ends justify the means’ ideology, which is a JESUIT Counter-Reformation logo for wars[iii] that support libertarian concomitants that foment social disorder and moral chaos. The prosecution of these materialist ideations as developed by Western Humanists is foreign to Asian tradition. Nevertheless, they have tempted many to abandon august birthrights with offensively selfish intent. Hence, a return to morality and authentic Oriental ethics should be sought after at all levels of society, wherein secularism and usurious monetization are given little play in communities seeking to follow their respective paths towards peace and security.
 The word adat is derived from Arabic ‘adat (plural form of ‘adah) meaning custom, or habit and is considered as synonymous with ‘urf, something which is commonly known or accepted. It generally refers to the result of long-standing convention – either deliberately adopted or the result of unconscious adaptation to circumstances – that has been followed where practical considerations have been uppermost. – The Islamic Traditions of Cirebon: Ibadat and Adat Among Javanese Muslims by Abdul Ghoffur Muhaimin
 An example of such an inconsistency is what occurred in English jurisprudence in the nineteenth century. Contract theory from Civil Law was defined as an agreement between two individuals that generates liability. This meant that a contract was between two (or more) people including an offer and acceptance. However, this understanding was eroded by the building of contracts solely upon the solidarity of a group (e.g. including Co-operatives, Partnerships and Public Limited Companies (PLCs) rather than the will of the individuals involved. The theory of liability deviated further with the introduction of the Solitary Will when stock markets came into existence. The Solitary Will is where an individual agrees to the written constitution of a company by purchasing its shares with no formal offer from anyone. This came to be termed as the Individual Will whereby shares could be exchanged very quickly without the need for two people to continuously come together and have a formal offer and acceptance. An example of this is the take-over bid of the world’s richest football club, Manchester United FC by Malcolm Glazier. He imposed his will on the company (i.e. he brought shares) and even though other shareholders were against such an action it was a valid form of acquiring ownership from a jurisprudential angle even though there was only one person in the contract (acceptance but no offer). Both these examples are in clear contradiction to the initial Theory of Liability that did not permit such a contract. The initial basis had to be abandoned in the face of new developments thereby establishing its inadequacy.

Organs, obelisks, crosses on churches, ecumenism. Those who speak out against this have been persecuted Such persecution being logical antichrist activity (per White, supra). “And Dr. Hopkins, in “A Treatise on the Millennium,” declares: “There is no reason to consider the antichristian spirit and practices to be confined to that which is now called the Church of Rome. The Protestant churches have much of antichrist in them, and are far from being wholly reformed from . . . corruptions and wickedness.”

The top Jesuits who operate openly in monastic robes at the Vatican find that they like to meet with their Jesuit brethren (in mufti) in the Adventist church more often than just at the World Council of Churches meetings. And so they get together annually at the “Conference of Secretaries of the Christian World Communions”. “The Conference of Secretaries represents about two billion Christians and covers more churches than any other organization, including the WCC. The Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Russian Orthodox Church are represented and so are the Roman Catholic Church, the Lutheran World Federation, the World Mennonite Conference, the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, the Baptist World Alliance, and others. Adventists have played an important role in this Conference in opening it to Evangelicals. Bert B. Beach was the Secretary of the Conference for 32 years.” (John Graz, Is The General Conference Involved in Ecumenism?, Reflections – A BRI Newsletter, Number 19, July 2007, p 2)

“The Catholic Church has, in the past, tried to prohibit the reading and distribution of the Word of God.

[vii] Modern Jews, the Talmud & Kabala
The conception of the Jews as the Chosen People who must eventually rule the world forms indeed the basis of Rabbinical Judaism… the Jewish religion now takes its stand on the Talmud rather than on the Bible. “The modern Jew,” one of its latest Jewish translators observes, “is the product of the Talmud.” The Talmud itself accords to the Bible only a secondary place. Thus the Talmudic treatise Soferim says: “The Bible is like water, the Mischna is like wine, and the Gemara is like spiced wine.
The Talmud is not a law of righteousness for all mankind, but a meticulous code applying to the Jew alone. No human being outside the Jewish race could possibly go to the Talmud for help or comfort… In the Talmud, Drach points out, “the precepts of justice, of equity, of charity towards one’s neighbor, are not only not applicable with regard to the Christian, but constitute a crime in anyone who would act differently… The Talmud expressly forbids one to save a non-Jew from death… to restore lost goods, etc., to him, to have pity on him.”… [but] even the Jews are not unanimous in supporting the Talmud; indeed, as we have already seen, many Jews have protested against it as a barrier between themselves and the rest of the human race.… It is in the Cabala, still more than in the Talmud, that the Judaic dream of world-domination recurs with the greatest persistence. The Zohar indeed refers to this as a fait accompli.
Michael Rodkinson (i.e. Rodkinssohn); Preface to his translation of the Talmud, Vol. I. p. x.
The hope of world-domination is therefore not an idea attributed to the Jews by “anti-Semites,” but a very real and essential part of their traditions. [This is also true of Lamaism. – oz] What then of their attitude to Christianity in the past? We have already seen that hatred of the person and teaching of Christ did not end at Golgotha, but was kept alive by the Rabbis and perpetuated in the Talmud and the Toledot Yeshu. The Cabala also contains passages referring both to Christ and to Mohammed so unspeakably foul that it would be impossible to quote them here:
[Kabalism] has contributed to the formation of modern Judaism, for, without the influence of the Kabala, Judaism today might have been one-sided, lacking in warmth and imagination. Indeed, so deeply has it penetrated into the body of the faith that many ideas and prayers are now immovably rooted in the general body of orthodox doctrine and practice. This element has not only become incorporated, but it has fixed its hold on the affections of the Jews and cannot be eradicated… Assuredly sectarian Freethinkers swarm, who flatter themselves on having borrowed nothing from the synagogue and on hating equally Jehovah and Jesus. But the modern Jewish world is itself also detached from any supernatural belief, and the Messianic tradition, of which it preserves the cult, reduces itself to considering the Jewish race as the veritable Messiah.
