The Occult Roots of The Wizard of Oz

Oct 8th, 2009 | By Vigilant | Category: Vigilant Reports

With its memorable story and its cast of colorful characters, the Wizard of Oz quickly became an American classic. More than a hundred years after the release of this book, kids everywhere are still enchanted by Oz’s world of wonder. Few, however, recognize that, under its deceptive simplicity, the story of the Wizard of Oz conceals deep esoteric truths inspired by Theosophy. Here we’ll look at the Wizard of Oz’s occult meaning and its author’s background.

The Occult Roots of The Wizard of Oz

With its memorable story and its cast of colorful characters, the Wizard of Oz quickly became an American classic. More than a hundred years after the release of this book, kids everywhere are still enchanted by Oz’s world of wonder. Few, however, recognize that, under its deceptive simplicity, the story of the Wizard of Oz conceals deep esoteric truths inspired by Theosophy. Here we’ll look at the Wizard of Oz’s occult meaning and its author’s background.

Although the Wizard of Oz is widely perceived as an innocent children’s fairy tale, it is almost impossible not to attribute a symbolic meaning to Dorothy’s quest. As in all great stories, the characters and the symbols of the Wizard of Oz can be given a second layer of interpretation, which may vary depending on the reader’s perception. Many analyses appeared throughout the years describing the story as an “atheist manifesto” while others saw it as a promotion of populism. It is through an understanding of the author’s philosophical bckground and beliefs, however, that the story’s true meaning can be grasped.

L. Frank Baum, the author of the Wizard of Oz was a member of the Theosophical Society, which is an organization based on occult research and the comparative study of religions. Baum had a deep understanding of Theosophy and, consciously or not, created an allegory of Theosophic teachings when he wrote the Wizard of Oz.

Banned Cartoons! How Times Change?

Posted in Cartoons, Controversy, Folklore, Literature and Books, Racism, Sex, TV, Urban Myths with tags , , , , , , , on June 18, 2009 by Richard James Clark II

It always interests me that cartoons are a medium that can get away with alot besides their for kids only RIGHT?.

They don’t express personnal beliefs RIGHT?

Well we all got confused when Bugs Bunny wore a dress, and Donald Duck you walks around with no trouser but leave the shower with a towel around his bottom half. RIGHT?

Well these clips are a few examples of banned cartoons for numerous reasons.

The first one is Tiny Toons which shows the effect of Alcohol-Shame this was banned, would be a good deterent..

The others are banned due to drug use or racist stereotypes, and to think that back then these cartoons were considered ok

So if you do take offense to any of these just a reminder they are not allowed on television AT ALL NOW

Most of the cartoon makers were German and had links with Nazi parties.

However in the future check out Disney films and the secrets behind them, check it out on the web, it is quite shocking…

Alfie, 13, not father of baby? Sex Education is Poor?

Posted in Comedy, Controversy, Diet, Education, Folklore, Food & Drink, Health and Beauty, Living, News Media, Politics, Religion, Romance, Science, Sex, TV, Urban Myths with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2009 by Richard James Clark II

Sex Education Is Poor?

Ok two headlines in the last two days about

A mother who finds out her twins have different fathers and a 13 year old-who was actually 12 years old (not much better really) finds out he isn’t a father to a 15 year old girl’s baby .

Now I am not a prude but what is f*cking going on?

Sex education in the UK is at a all-time low

We have every form of contraception in the Western Civilised world but people as young as 12 are pregnant.

In world wide cultures this can occur but it is not advised….but their are countries where they can’t even afford contraception and then this happens in countries which have a decent welfare/monetary system.

Read the latest headline-But I am not being snobby but the people who seem to be making the mistakes are the very poor and this has got to stop…they need to be educated or neuted (this is what you would do to animals!) even if it is advised on television or the welfare system doesn’t support this disgusting behaviour.

As frankly I am getting sick of this CRAP!

READ ON

Little Alfie Patten, reported to have become a parent at the age of 13, did not father a baby, it has been revealed.

In February, The Sun newspaper reported the teenager believed he had made Chantelle Stedman, 15, pregnant when he was aged just 12.

A DNA test has since shown this is not the case and it can now be reported that Tyler Barker, 15, who lives on the same estate as Chantelle in Eastbourne, is in fact the father of baby Maisie, who was born on February 9.

The result can be revealed after East Sussex County Council failed in an attempt to ban reports of the case.

A judgment, made last month by Mrs Justice Eleanor King, said Chantelle had been called a “slut” by four people she did not know. The teenager said “I was crying a lot every day” and feared that the insults would “go on forever”.

Alfie was “extremely distressed” when he was told he was not the baby’s father in March, the judgment revealed. At the time the story was published, Alfie, who lives with his mother Nicola, 43, in Eastbourne, said he “thought it would be good to have a baby”.

The story renewed calls for better sex education in England, which has the highest rate of teenage pregnancies in western Europe.

A parent who gets banned from a swimming pool Breastfeeding her child-talk about double standards

Breastfeeding ‘broke no food rule’

A mother has been told to stop breastfeeding her baby boy by a swimming pool as it breached a leisure centre’s strict poolside ban on food and drink.

Laura Whotton was left fuming when a member of staff said she could not feed 11-week-old Joshua by the pool at John Carroll Leisure Centre, in Nottingham.

The 26-year-old, from Carrington, in the city, was feeding her hungry baby there so she could keep an eye on her son Thomas, four.

Nottingham City Council insisted there had been “a misunderstanding” and has promised to apologise to Ms Whotton.

It is also issuing new guidelines to its leisure centre staff.

A council spokeswoman said: “The rules are that there’s definitely no food and drink poolside, but breastfeeding is exempt from that rule. People can breastfeed anywhere.”

Ms Whotton told the Nottingham Evening Post: “When it happened, it made me feel angry.

“It could put people off going swimming and has made me not want to go to the John Carroll Leisure Centre again. But an apology would be fine.”

WHERE IS THE LOGIC

COMMENTS PLEASE-I CAN’T BE ALONE THINKING THIS IS WACK!

Mum’s Shock At Twins With Different Dads

Mum’s Shock At Twins With Different Dads

A mother of twins has had a shock after doctors revealed that her 11-month-old boys do not have the same father

Mia Washington decided to get some expert advice when she and her partner noticed that twins Justin and Jordan had different facial features.

Paternity tests then revealed what had happened – two eggs had been fertilised by two different sperm and there was a 99.99% chance the twins had different dads.

Doctors at the DNA lab in Dallas, Texas had never seen such a result.

Mia later admitted she had had an affair and got pregnant by two different men at the same time.

She told TV channel Fox 4: “Out of all people in America and of all people in the world, it had to happen to me. I’m very shocked.”

Clear Diagnostics president Genny Thibodeaux said: “It is very crazy. Most people don’t believe it can happen, but it can.”

Sky’s health correspondent Thomas Moore explains: “A woman can release two eggs from her ovaries, and the eggs will remain viable for 24 hours after ovulation.

“Sperm can survive up to five days inside a woman’s body, so a woman could sleep with different men several days apart, and get pregnant not once, but twice.”

And while it sounds rare, recent research indicates that one in 12 non-identical twins are so-called bi-paternal, with a rise in fertility treatment and changing sexual behaviour being blamed.

Mia’s partner James Harrison is father to one of the boys.

He told Fox 4 that he had forgiven his fiancee for having the affair and intended to raise both children as his own.

However, he admitted it had been tough discovering the truth.

“It’s a day by day thing. It’s going to take time to build the trust like we had,” he said.

The couple plan to tell the twins they are half-brothers when they are old enough to understand.

Yahoo! users back Parky over Jade comments

Yahoo! users back Parky over Jade comments

Recent articles

In response to the article I posted earlier

We’ve had an overwhelming response to our blog about Michael Parkinson’s comments about the late Jade Goody.

Earlier we reported how the veteran broadcaster had said that Jade represented “all that is paltry and wretched about Britain” in his column in this week’s Radio Times.

Parkinson stated that, while he felt Jade’s death was as sad as that of any young person, he disagreed with the media’s manipulation of her from hate figure to Princess Diana-style saint following her death.

He described her as “the perfect victim of our times” and said that she should now be allowed to “rest in peace.”

We had more than 18,000 comments in the first five hours (more than we’ve ever had for a TV blog) and it appears that the majority of our users support Parky and his decision to speak out.

Almost 30,000 votes had been cast in our poll by 5pm, with an incredible 87% saying that they agreed with the chatshow host.

Mgnewson commented on our blog: “I agree totally with Sir Michael, at last someone has the guts to say it” while Victorcampbell said: “It’s about time someone injected a little reality into this situation.”

However, not everyone agreed and Kellyliveshere believed it was “a horrible and senseless thing to say” while Jessica.bungay feels that ‘Parkinson has just helped himself to become one of the most disliked men in the UK.”
