Kipling, Destiny and Diamond Jubilees
Rudyard Kipling's poem
Recessional was so prophetic of the future of the British Empire
when he wrote it in 1897, the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
It predicted with amazing accuracy, the future of the 'British Empire'.
That future was clearly revealed in the year of the next Diamond
Jubilee, that of Queen Elizabeth II. Kipling saw the arrogance in
the 1897 celebrations. But at least then Britain had an Empire to
be proud of. The Diamond Jubilee celebrations of 2012 were
unadulterated hype, very much bread and circuses for a country on its
knees. The sole aim of the 2012 celebrations was to delude the
people into feeling they should be grateful to Queen Elizabeth II for
'being there' for '60 glorious years' even though it was mostly mis-rule
by a succession of politicians. The decline probably began in the
60s but certainly accelerated with a vengeance in the 80s. But the
Great Thames Pageant of 2012 fitted very neatly into the webs of
destiny, which of course it was meant to.
Yes, Rudyard Kipling saw the
future with an uncanny accuracy.
Far called, our navies melt away
On dune and headland sinks the fire
Lo all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre
An now in 2012 the British Empire
is every bit as much as dead as those of Nineveh and Tyre and of
course.......Egypt. And 'our navies' have certainly melted
away. That is why there was a 'great pageant' on the Thames
in 2012. It was because there is no fleet left to review, as there
was in 1897, or even in 1977 for Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee.
The idea of Great Britain is as dead as the Pharaohs. And why is
that? The answer is because the British ignored the last two lines
of Kipling's poem. He ended each verse with the words:
Judge of the Nations, spare as yet
Lest we forget lest we forget.
The British forgot about God a
long time ago. Britain is now probably the most godless country in
Europe. Perhaps this accounts, in part at least, for its manifold
social ills. Of course, holding fast to the gospel of the false
Goddess of Greed also had a lot to do with the rapid decline of Britain.
(At this point, I went back and edited this section and highlighted
Recessional in bold. At that point my eye was drawn to the
time on the computer clock. It showed 00:29 on 17th August 2012.
Yes it is certainly the time of 229 for Britain - a time of Revelation.)
It is curious how this inspired
poem by Kipling is so curiously linked by destiny into the House of
Windsor. Indeed Kipling's death was a very closely tied to the
death of a sovereign. The great poet, whose verses inspired the
Empire, died the very day before his King, George V, on 19th February,
1935. Our car crash, so intricately connected to Diana's murder,
was on the very same day in 2008 in the middle of the Diana inquest.
Inspiration, destiny, design ; they are all so intricately
