2083 Graphics — a first look

[ by Charles Cameron — index of graphics, first 800 or so pages of the “2083 European Declaration of Independence”, with some analysis ]


A great deal of work needs to be done on the 2083 European Declaration of Independence, and I thought a useful place to start would be a catalog of images.

The document opens with a graphical title:

000-2083-cross-tp.jpg — title page —

That’s probably the largest single graphic in the entire work, and it puts the work squarely in the context of the Knights Templar — with e Templar cross and the full name of the order, “Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonic” or Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon.  The Templars were a Western Christian chivalric order strongly associated with the Crusades — and the topic more recently of much historical, occult and fictional speculation.

The date 2083 is a date SFE (in the Science Fictional Era) as was 1984 before it — but it was almost certainly chosen for its echo of the 1683 Battle of Vienna, which is commonly taken to represent the turning back of the Ottomans by the Habsburgs, and thus the victory of Christendom over Islam.  Two maps show the Umayyad Conquests:

and the Second Islamic Wave, turned back in Spain and at the gates of Vienna:

243-1683-second-islamic-wave-p-243.jpg — p 243 —

These can fruitfully be contrasted with a map of “tomorrow”:

demain-p-487.jpg — p 487 —

it being the author’s contention that France will be the first European country to fall to Islamic dhimmitude.  I suspect much the same is implied in this version of the French tricolore:

flag-face-p-781.jpg — p 781 —

There are some pointed attacks on leftist intellectuals:

033-academic-reform-p-33.jpg — p 33 —

and on media perceived as left-leaning, notably the BBC:

bbc-flag-w-crescent-p-384.jpg  — p 384

— that’s the Saudi flag mashed up with the BBC logo and star and crescent — and:

804-bbc-02-p-804.jpg  — p 804 —

giving both “ancient” and “modern” variants on the theme…

There are some strange items which I’ll drop in here for a breath of fresh air…

free-pluto-equal-gravity-for-all-planets-p-381.jpg  — p 381 —

which appears to be a commentary on the respective attractions of Venus and Mars, since it’s situated in a commentary on Feminism…

this really is a strangely mythic document… and…


with its reference to “mind control agents” — and those whose minds have been controlled are clearly sheep:

wake-up-p-803.jpg — p 803 —

which may be the right moment to mention that the British, too, come in for a measure of contempt, via a quotation from none other than Osama bin Laden:

when-people-see-a-strong-horse-p-707.jpg  — p 707 —

“When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse”.  Perhaps its unsurprising that the author is something of an admirer of bin Laden’s means, if not his ends.

Of course, that’s largely the fault of the Labour party:


But that’s probably enough for one post — in my next, I’ll consider how weak we are, what the jihadist strategy against us is, and how the new Templars hope to turn the tide

the worst threats to mankind.

    It doesn’t even have a table of contents for God’s sakes! 1518 pages and the reader apparently is expected to dive anyway because the contents are so inspiring. That’s what fanaticism is. He thinks he knows the Real Truth so everyone else is expected to listen. He’s so self-obsessed and deluded he thinks he can lead a revolution when in reality is too uncomprehending to even include a table of contents in a book.
    But he did murder almost 100 and planned it carefully.

    Hi Charles, You said, "Perhaps its unsurprising that the author is something of an admirer of bin Laden’s means, if not his ends." They are both wolves, evil to their core.

  3. Charles Cameron Says:

    The document does have a table of contents in some .docx versions, including the one which can be downloaded here.  I believe the analyst J-F Meyer will be posting a .pdf that includes the ToC later today, probably at Religioscope.

  4. John R. Hall Says:

    Charles, I have moved in a somewhat different direction, seeking to characterize the actions and ideology as a whole, very preliminary, but perhaps useful.
    I have just completed a very preliminary examination of the Norwegian manifesto posted just before the Oslo bombings. It is an astonishing and significant document, far from the incoherent ravings of a mad person, as I would wish it to be. And it is incredibly chilling in its ruthless rationality and relative coherence. Here, I offer some initial reflections. I have concentrated on the portions from page 717 forward, where the author details ideology, revolutionary strategy, and utopian vision of a future, federated Europe. Beginning on p. 1388, the author offers an autobiography and c.v. of Breivik, which presumably will be checked out by investigators and the media, plus a quite detailed account of his actions over the past several years. A number of important comparisons already have been made — to al Qaida and the Oklahoma City bombing, for example. But in many ways, if the perpetrator indeed acted alone, he is something of a piece with the Unabomber, who similarly combined ruthless action with a carefully elaborated manifesto. There are important difference, to be sure. In particular, the Unabomber worked to conceal his identity so that he could carry out multiple actions, and he operated out of an environmental left ideology rather than a Christian nationalism.
    The latter part of the document depicts its account of pre-emptive war as a new mode of writing, exploring scenarios rather than writing fiction or history, thereby claiming to eliminate its usefulness to authorities seeking to use it as evidence when bringing charges against the author or a perpetrator of the acts it describes.
    As others already have commented, the label of ‘Christian fundamentalist’ seems wrong, at least in conventional use of the term today. Certainly the author represents himself as a nationalist/European federalist conservative opposed to ‘cultural genocide’ of the Enlightenment West, and seemingly he proposes reinstitution of monarchy as more representative of a nation than democracy can be. Only very late in the missive, p. 1134, does he embrace Europe’s return to the traditional Catholic Church, for its apostolic succession of authority and its capacity to guide believers in matters of scripture. This development is to be coupled with a re-initation of patriarchy, developed in substantial detail (p. 1141ff.), and concern about ‘the ongoing genocide of the Nordic tribes’ and a discussion of its genetic basis and the dangers of miscegenation and sexual promiscuity (including a discussion of ‘erotic capital,’ leading to a frank discussion of the possibility that the state could ‘play an essential role in national reproduction’ (p. 1157ff.; quote, p. 1185). The treatise goes on to mention future education, economic, pollution-control, population-control, crime, cultural/anti-multicultural, deportation, and youth policies, as well as discussing financing an organization, categories of traitors (A, B, and C). In short, it is a comprehensive (in Mannheim’s terms) ‘utopian’ vision, i.e., one that could never be realized in the world as it is presently institutionalized.
    Yet there is certainly a basis for recognizing the claims of a ‘Christian’ basis for the ideology, and a religioius fundamentalism as well. This latter claim, I make in relation to Martin Riesebrodt’s important comparative study of U.S. Protestantism at the dawn of the twentieth century and Iranian fundamentalism 70 years later or so — both of them strongly based in an ideology of patriarchy, as is the Oslo killer’s manifesto (A Pious Passion, U. California Press, 1993).

    Yet this is not simply ideological quasi-religious fundamentalism/nationalism. Rather, the utopian program has all the markings of an apocalyptic crusader, and more generally, the apocalyptic warring sect that I described in Apocalypse (Polity, 2009). The lever by which the author makes contact with Christianity (beyond its status as the cultural basis of European civilization, is a modern-day ‘PCCTS, Knights Templar’ struggle to initiate a European ‘civil war’ against ‘enablers’ — cultural marxists and multiculturalists who are ‘aiding and abetting’ cultural genocide, most significantly in efforts to accommodate Islam within Europe. The challenge, as the author sees it, seems to be to eliminate Islamic migration to Europe, assimilate or force emigration of Muslims, and to excise all Islamist or Arab influenced culture, art, and architecture from European countries. The Knights Templar, described as an ‘ancient Christian European military order, is being re-founded not by Christians alone, but by 12 individuals, including a ‘Christian atheist’ and a ‘Christian agnostic.’ Eventually, p. 1309, the manifesto is clear that its appeal is to ‘cultural Christians,’ although it invokes the Bible and Church crusading history, especially the work of Bernard de Clairvaux, to justify the contemporary initiative. One of many elements is the crucial proposal to engage in asymmetric warfare — a vein that is classically that of the apocalyptic warring sect, using a ‘clandestine cell organization,’ combining the rhetoric of ultimate belief in a cause with the cold, rational logic of how to operate. In considerable detail, the manifesto outlines a mode of operations that foreshadows the actions in and near Oslo, including the chilling note, page 886, that it will take ‘the SWAT team 10 – 40 minutes to reach you,’ and therefore, it is worthwhile to divide up the components of a planned action accordingly.Similarly, the author mentions, p. 995, ‘announcing your operation’ ‘only seconds before you initiate’ it, and suggests, p. 927, ‘hide a knife behind a smile,’ a recommendation, along with subsequent ones, that foreshadows the killer’s use of a police uniform and a story about helping to ensure the safety of the island camp participants before beginning to slay them — a technique that he used twice, in different places on the island.
    In a variety of passages, the document offers a detailed handbook of asymmetric operations of war, including attacks and sabotage, and evaluation of a variety of targets, accompanied by a detailed catalogue of equipment, weapons (including bombs made from fertilizer — see esp. p. 1015), and armor, where to buy materials, and how to create weapons, detailed discussions of chemical, biological assaults, and attacks on nuclear reactors, as well as dietary recommendations, and an outline of a training regimen, recommendations concerning alliances with certain criminal networks [a theme that reprises the analysis of Eric Hobsbawm that I cited several weeks ago].
    The author also announces that the apprehension of a Knights Templar is not the end of the operation: it ‘will mark the initiation of the propaganda phase’ (p. 948), and afterward, the task will be one of ‘countering the misinformation campaign’ (p. 1073), and comments on the use of trial opening and concluding statements for propaganda purposes (p. 1108-14). Alternatively, if you die, you will live on as a martyr in the memory of those carrying on the cause.
    The scope of the publication is almost encyclopedic. It also includes historical analysis of how the past millennium of European history lead to the present crisis and need for re-formation of the Knights Templar, as well as a sketch of the umbrella organization, membership, military uniforms for dress occasions, medals, appropriate tombstones, a proposal for subsequent compensation (upon victory) for people who contribute to the resistance movement (a sort of rational-choice approach to mobilizing supporters), and on and on.
    In short, the document envisions apocalyptic war as the means to reach a new European conservative/nationalist/Christian utopia. Yet unlike many other visions of apocalyptic war, this manifesto goes far toward detailing what that utopian world would look like. Even if, as it seems, this action is that of a lone individual, it is a dangerous development that we ignore at our peril.

    john — wow.  what an excellent contribution.  thanks for placing it here.
    charles — this comment deserves elevation to post status?!
    also. its ingedients prompt me to wonder who elsewhere might be inspired by this guy, and thu whether the answers might include the violent devilish drug-running crime gang known as the "knights templar" spin-off from "la familia" in michoacan in mexico. 

  6. Lexington Green Says:

    "The author also announces that the apprehension of a Knights Templar is not the end of the operation: it ‘will mark the initiation of the propaganda phase’ (p. 948), and afterward, the task will be one of ‘countering the misinformation campaign’ (p. 1073), and comments on the use of trial opening and concluding statements for propaganda purposes (p. 1108-14)."I guessed correctly.  This guy is taking the Islamist model and using it against them, by engaging in lawfare and using the constitutional guarantees as a shield for terrorist attacks and propaganda.  This guy is taking the radically decentralized Islamist model, and creating a mirror image campaign to attack on behalf of an antithetical goal.  Oddly, though the means will likely to be effective, the goal of a Europe rid of Islam is probably more achievable than a Caliphate in Europe, at least within any reasonable amount of time.  He may be a lone individual, but he is hoping that his "propaganda of the deed" will allow him to inspire an army of solo and small group imitators, to form a self-starting and self-identifying movement of Knights Templars.  This may all be a pretty coldly assessed plan which, while immoral in its means, may not be necessary irrational in means/ends terms.

    Great suggestion, David. Coming right up!

  8. Charles Cameron Says:

    Dr Hall’s comment is now up as a guest post at https://zenpundit.com/?p=4211 — please comment on his post there, and feel free to continue more general discussion here.

  9. Peter Feltham Says:

    Charles – firstly good to read you again!

    The BBC had a radio news item this morning which seems apposite. He was reported as demanding a tanning session and then a grooming session before his court appearance, reinforcing the narcism reports perhaps? In that respect, the Norwegian Government’s decision to hold that initial hearing as a closed session must have really impacted on him..

  10. Charles Cameron Says:

    Great to read you too, Oink! — and that’s a very interesting point about the closed session.

  11. Peter Feltham Says:

    My opinion is that Norway has shown immense dignity throughout this sad affair, as anyone who has dealt with them would expect. Still, it’s good to see.
    I’m so glad to see some serious thought on all this in here – the media feeding frenzy is both the norm these days, alas, but disgraceful. Harrumph.

  12. Charles Cameron Says:

    I’ve been so caught up in monitoring the "cultural Christian" / "Templar" side of things that I’ve only been able to notice the Norwegians’ restrained grief in passing, but as you say, the image has been one of quiet dignity.
