Fratres et Sorores of the Golden Dawn Community:
Remember the feeling of doing your first LBRP and the joy and excitement of being part of a magical reality?
Just imagine for a moment if in that swirl of intense excitement you turned to the net to find people like you and all you found were squabbles, hate, and Nazi accusations.
You are starting to experience an episode of anger, disappointment, and disgust at the people who threw black paint on the colorful landscape of your dreams.
People keep asking me why do I continue to angrily harp against these slanderous attack websites? Why do I keep calling for Golden Dawn harmony, when obviously those same people utterly hate my guts?
Everyone knows that lies will reach the end of the world before truth can get its shoes on.
Ask yourself this question, if you love something passionately will you let someone who hates you steal it away from you without a fight?
People who continue to tarnish the name of the Golden Dawn with false slanderous accusations of Nazism are doing just that.
People who refuse to let go of squabbles between orders for the greater good of the Golden Dawn are doing just that.
People who will try to divide us against each and build up straw men to wage war against are doing just that.
Clearly, we will not let this happen.
Still, there are people who refuse to get it.
Robert Zink, using his anonymous troll, alter ego, published a post on the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn Forum claiming that the Nazi blogs defaming the entire Golden Dawn community was authored by Tomas Stacewicz and David Griffin (me).
Let me summarize their argument. As you read it, think about it logically.
They are saying:
· I am interested in creating an umbrella Golden Dawn order with me at its head
· I would like to be the Alpha dog of the Golden Dawn with largest number of members
· Slanderous Nazi websites appear all over the internet defaming me and the order I belong to
· I am moved into anger by the constant slander and negativity
· I devise a nefarious plan as an ultimate solution to the attack on our order and to ensure total domination and hoards of new recruits.
· I ask for peace and end to the squabble
· I then diabolically create MORE nazi websites to attack our order and defame my name in addition to all the people I have appealed to for peace and end to the squabble.
Obviously, only someone who has parked his brain at the garage or driven by pure hate will believe such an irrational hypothesis. I have said it once and I will say it again. When people see the name Golden Dawn and Nazism in the same breath they will not pick up on the nuance of political history or interpersonal feuds. They will walk away with one message: the Golden Dawn has been tainted.
Here’s the bottom line:
I want peace in the Golden Dawn. I want this nonsense to STOP.
Still, let’s face it…
There are people in the Golden Dawn who prefer to see the feud going. They want you to believe the entire HOGD/AO with its thousands of members doesn’t exist by making this conflict all about their hatred of me.
Here are the facts:
We recognize diversity among Golden Dawn orders.
We have taken the lead in promoting harmony in the Golden Dawn community.
The HOGD/AO has grown into the world's largest Golden Dawn order:
- with more members than any other Golden Dawn order.
- with temples all around the world
- with the Golden Dawn's ONLY membership website.
- with the Golden Dawn's ONLY complete, three order curriculum
- the ONLY Golden Dawn order that teaches Hermetic Inner Alchemy
Why does Robert Zink not once and for all likewise condemn the use of negative websites and blogs attacking Golden Dawn orders?
Robert Zink just published a link on his forum to the new site defaming the entire Golden Dawn community.
Why would he do that? Clearly, he wishes to bring attention to the defamation and stir up disharmony.
Robert Zink claims that the entire Golden Dawn community is in harmony while at the same time he is attacking that entire community by linking to filthy sites attacking that entire community.
Obviously, Robert Zink DOES NOT WANT harmony in the Golden Dawn community. He wants conflict, which he calls "bellum."
What is the true meaning of this? Robert Zink needs a scapegoat. He needs someone who he can demonize in the misguided attempt to unite his order.
Obviously, the time has come for Robert Zink to stop promoting strife in the Golden Dawn community once and for all and to finally stand up and sow some real leadership by condemning ALL defamation against ALL Golden Dawn orders instead of just going on attacking the HOGD/AO and its leaders as he has been doing for decades.
Let there be no doubt about it. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the outer order of the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega is not going anywhere.
