UK Filter to Block “Esoteric Content” — Worldwide Implications

What’s the difference between pornography and spiritual teachings? According to this new censorship effort in the UK: nothing. That’s right. The government that willfully engages in and covers up pervasive, systemic sexual abuse of children has decided that it must Nanny State out children’s possible access to online pornography — as well as anyone else’s access to whatever spiritual information the government decides to label “esoteric.”

Hmmm … the worldwide spiritual awakening seems to have those pathetic powers that (think they) “be” quakin’ in their booties.

I do encourage people to act on this one, since the insanity has already begun to infiltrate other countries. We live in a vibrational world. Got to stamp out those rising online spiritual communities as well as all that esoteric knowledge. Must. Launch. Earth. Back. To. Dark. Ages. You know, for the children’s sake. I actually know of some people who’ve already felt the effects of this censorship on their sites, ridiculous and desperate tactic though it is.

Watch out for narcissists stripped of adoration and emperors found naked. A message to those who want to censor esoteric content: ponder these immortal words from The Holy Grail:

“I fart in your general direction. Your mother is a hampster, and your father smells of old elderberries! Now go away, before I taunt you a second time!” (Yes, you and your tyranny are that absurd.)

  1. Maybe they got it confused with “Erotic” — both start with E.

    This seems outrageous at first glance, but if you bear in mind that there is the option to opt out of the filter, what’s the big deal?? By opting out you can still access all the esoteric material you desire (unless it’s criminal).

    I am concerned about censorship as well, but surely this isn’t it?

    It strikes me that this is a sensible social policy designed to protect children.

    I am open to debate on this issue, if I am misguided on the subject someone please let me know, but it seems pretty straightforward.

  9. I have zero issue with blocking pornography from children. What the heck does esoteric content have to do with pornography, though? The issue is that even if filters have go-arounds, not everyone has the tech savvy to do that; not everyone realizes that esoteric sites are being blocked and no longer showing up in search engines, etc.; and it sets a precedent of allowing the government to determine what’s “appropriate” in terms of spirituality.

    In the US there is now a similar push by Congress to define who is a “journalist.” This is slippery slope.

    Well, I agree that the issue about pornography is more black and white, and I guess it depends on which esoteric material is being filtered. I look at it like this, if a child were to be able to walk into a public library and access it, would we be happy? In the case of certain esoteric material, I would have to say yes. If for example it was a book about the occult, black magic, say something by Crowley or Satanic, I wouldn’t be happy about that, and in a library I would want that to be in an adult only section.

    The idea that people aren’t tech savvy enough to phone their ISP’s and remove the filter doesn’t seem a good argument. Modern spiritual teachings all seem to be about individual empowerment, changing your life for the better, educating yourself etc., and a lot of the changes people make like eating healthier, introducing daily prayer or meditation have got to be a lot tougher than making a call and asking a filter to be removed. And if all a web site has to do is put a simple message up saying that to access certain material they have to remove a filter, then getting the message out there shouldn’t be difficult.

    What esoteric material is being filtered would be very interesting to know, I would say that if whatever material being filtered could also be purchased in book form from Amazon by a child, then that would make the internet only rule a nonsense.

    I appreciate your views though, it could well be a slippery slope, and I don’t like the idea that governments are defining what’s appropriate, raising the issue of do we trust governments.. which in many cases I don’t! I am in the UK and I guess this makes me more comfortable with state intervention on such matters, and on balance I would still advocate a the filter, though my views could be changed depending on which material they decide to censor.

    I just wanted to say that I’m not trying to troll or anything, I really like your blogs!!

  11. Thanks, Patrick! I appreciate the input, and yes, I agree, it does depend on what’s being filtered. I know in the US, even the kinds of books that are no longer considered appropriate to teach in schools are pretty alarming in the censorship. I also have a fair number of teachers as clients, so I hear inside information on how the government is trying to regulate what is allowed to be available or not. I also do find it highly ironic that the UK government, which does participate in some really sick, grim, abusive treatment of children isn’t going after the high level prosecutions but instead going after “esoteric” content somehow in the name of protecting children from pornography. Clean up your own nest first, I say! There’s ample stuff there to keep them busy. Blessings to you! I know you’re not a troll. 🙂

    Blessings to you too! 🙂 When you say that the UK government participates in abusing children what do you mean exactly? The strong language you use makes me think of something conspiratorial. I’ve read certain things like this by David Icke but wasn’t sure how seriously to take it, and thought that if it was true it would probably be isolated cases only.

  13. I’m not sure how much the Jimmy Saville information has come out in the UK. It may be one of those things where we hear more outside of the UK. He was a huge pedophile with hundreds of accusers on record and many very close ties to politicians and the royal family. There were so many accusations and a long history of police turning a blind eye to it. Unfortunately, in the US as well, child trafficking is the sick underbelly of governmental blackmail. There’s way more to this than a David Icke conspiracy. I wish there was not, but it is pretty grim stuff. I’m not saying everyone in government is involved, but there is a LOT of crossover. I find it ironic that this issue of protecting children from pornography is being used to limit access to spiritual/esoteric content by a government that has repeatedly silenced victims of pedophilia and organized childhood sex rings. This is not an area I spend a lot of time focusing on, but I am aware enough of some of the details and have personally, closely known people in the US who were used in such a way. It is disturbing that people think they can accomplish all manner of tyrannical actions by claiming it’s “for the children.” I doubt it. If the UK government were so pro children, particularly on this issue, you would no have needed to ask about it. There would already have been a public purge. Still praying for that one, in the US as well!
    Blessings and healing to all involved…

    I live in Leeds and grew up near Jimmy Saville, we used to see him out and about and he was kind of a hero to us all. I now live next door to the hospital in Leeds where he abused many kids, and when he died even went to see the guy in rest and signed a book of condolences!! Needless to say, when all this started coming out about his child abuse it was very upsetting, and I still feel somewhat disturbed by it all. There is a debate among folk saying that the claims are exaggerated, but I don’t believe they were, at least not significantly… if anything I would imagine he abused more children than has been reported. It’s a disgrace that no complaints were investigated at the time, although to cut some of those in authority some slack, my understanding is that he had mafioso connections and will have been able to ruin anyone who threatened him in any way. At the same time it seems he was protected by some of those in authority who were part of the pedophile rings, which is a dreadful thought.

    I haven’t looked into it a lot and I don’t really want to focus too much energy on it either, but at the same time I don’t want to be in denial… to form any political opinions the issue of whether you can or cannot trust governments is fundamental, be it transparency, censorship, food / drug regulations, “defence” policy, taxation etc. I am not going to deny that I really WANT to trust government, and I do know a lot of good that been done in recent years (insofar as I can see at least), but this does tend to make me a little biased and sometimes and not see the bigger picture… then again sometimes when I’m in conspiracy mode if i see anyone in authority a little part of me is thinking, “are they a blood drinking reptilian satanist??!!” lol 🙂 I laugh at myself, but unfortunately the truth is it’s not funny at all… whatever the precise truth, children are being abused, there is no doubt about that, which is horrific.

    I will keep my eyes on the internet filter though, it will be interesting to see what the final outcome is. Thankfully we do have a strong liberal contingent here in the UK, and it seems doubtful to me that too much esoteric material will be filtered in the name of religious freedom. Let’s hope so anyway…

  15. Thanks for that additional perspective, Patrick. The good news is that there IS an awakening happening. It’s happening on individual, local and global levels. The other good news is that the internet isn’t the ONLY way to get information out there. Since this awakening is happening on all levels, it would be nice if the internet could remain free, but it’s not essential to the awakening. That makes me smile. 🙂

    Agreed! The positive changes are inevitable ~ from a macroscopic perspective this is all just tiny peaks and troughs on a grand upward curve. We must do our bit for sure, and I will do my best to keep swimming with the tide… I just need to get my stroke right!
