On June 1, 2016 western European leaders celebrated the opening of the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland, world’s longest rail tunnel, in a creepy ceremony filled with satanic imagery. Background information and some of the tamer images are provided in the Vigilant Citizen:
To celebrate the inauguration of this tunnel, an elaborate ceremony was presented in front of European dignitaries such as Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President Francois Hollande of France and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. While most would expect an up-beat, celebratory ceremony, guests were rather treated to a disturbing show orchestrated by German director Volker Hesse, where a man dressed as a goat presided a strange ritual.
Here is the Daily Mail’s report, which takes a more neutral tone on the ceremony. And this video shows high-definition footage of the indoor-portion of the event:
An aside question: why, with all those scenes already being straight out of Hieronymus Bosch, are the semi-naked dancers nevertheless modestly covered by underwear? (Except for the performer pictured at the top of this post appearing to be a topless male with female breasts.) Another incidental thing that struck me was that every single performer is White. Not one token present. As it should be — generally speaking in term’s of any theatrical performance’s aesthetic and cultural coherence — yet the racial homogeneity here so unusual when contrasted with that same establishment’s promotion of “diverse” images everywhere else.
This video features the outdoor portion of the ceremony, which is even more disturbing:
Satanic rituals? Illuminati? Portal to hell? I have no idea and I am not ruling anything out. There are many theories about the meaning of this ceremony. In one of the videos, the host speculates about that tunnel, along with other major underground projects, being merely the visible portions of much larger constructions — deep bunkers in which the elite plans to ride out an impending cataclysm that they either know about or intend to inflict on the rest of the planet. In such a scenario, I’d extrapolate, the current policy of mass-immigration make sense as a kill-insurance measure for any European survivors.
Another explanation for that over-the-top spectacle is that the European elites are trolling their traditional opposition to mock or disorient them. Or possibly in cooperation with their intelligence agencies, baiting their political opponents into making crazy-sounding claims. Like talk of illuminati hand-gestures, reptilian overlords, and remote-controlled drones flying into the Twin Towers being disseminated to discredit compelling cases such as those of Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth.
The third explanation suggests that the bizarre ceremony is an expression of mere nihilism of Europe’s atheist ruling class. As Lawrence Auster elucidated:
Eugene (Fr. Seraphim) Rose delineated four stages of Nihilism, defined by their ever-increasing indifference or hostility to truth. The first and mildest stage of Nihilism is Liberalism. The Liberal does not believe in truth, higher truth, absolute truth, or Christian truth. Yet he retains “the name of truth, and the names of those truths men once regarded as absolute.” The next stage of Nihilism is Realism (though I think a better name would be Materialism). The Realist aggressively denies all higher truth, he says that only the material, the physical, the lower, the purely deterministic, is true. The Vitalist in turn reacts against the unbearably meaningless and sterile world that has been created by the Liberal and the Realist. He seeks a revived meaning and vitality in life, but without challenging the Liberal’s and Realist’s assumptions about truth or seeking a restoration of the truths they have destroyed. [..]
In the Vitalist stage of society, people deliver themselves over to an unending search for sensation and excitement, for the exotic and the experimental, for ever-greater freedom and satisfaction of desires, for the “riches of diversity,” for the transforming “energy” that is produced by a society in constant change and motion—and with all these things being seen as, even explicitly promoted as, a substitute for any inherent truth and goodness in existence.
As Vitalism reaches its peak, the final stage of Nihilism starts to appear. This is the Nihilism of Destruction, “a rage against creation and against civilization that will not be appeased until it has reduced them to absolute nothingness.”
That is the explanation that makes the most sense to me. Except that the nihilists in attendance at that event are not innocent Marie Antoinettes playing at milkmaid. As perpetrators of the massive migrant invasion of Europe, they are criminals who are actively inflicting unnecessary and incalculable misery on the European people. Their hands are soaked in blood to their armpits.
By any of the above scenarios, as well as self-evidently, the Gotthard Base Tunnel opening ceremony looks like a wordless cry of a class whose necks are ripe for the guillotine’s blade.
