Guardian Angels

A guardian angel reminded me that we are our 
brother's keeper.

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

Although I have received scant recognition, I am the Father of the Science of Sociodynamics. Periodically, I am compelled to repeat the Three Laws governing human interaction.  While they may seem cynical, they introduce an article about human altruism and the notion that we are "our brother's keeper." 

The Three Laws of Human Interaction (Cf. Newton's Three Laws of Motion)

1. We are attracted to people who have something we want.
2. We are repelled by people who want something we have.
3. We are indifferent to people who do not belong in the two categories above.

Have you ever been called by someone who wishes to give you something you actually want?  Isn't it usually, "S/he's always there for you when s/he needs you?"

On the other hand I ask, how generous am I?

This topic came to mind because I have spent the month in my hometown Ottawa and have been pleasantly surprised by friendly gestures from strangers. Ottawa is a thoroughly Masonic place. The 666 logo "O" is on every street sign and city vehicle. The football team, the Redblacks, trumpets the colors of Satan. Nevertheless, it is more friendly than Winnipeg where I live.

A guardian angel in Ottawa may have saved me from calamity. I had put down my packsack which contained my Macbook behind my rented SUV. I loaded my bike into the SUV and forgot my packsack. I proceeded to back up. The vehicle started to beep like mad. But I couldn't see the problem and was about to continue when a stranger came running across the street warning me to stop. I'm not sure if the packsack was on the sidewalk or on the street behind the vehicle. In any case, my guardian angel handed it to me and dismissed my heartfelt thanks with a smile. 

Running over my computer, or even forgetting it on the sidewalk, would have been a classic blunder.  I just thanked my lucky stars that this guardian angel saved me so much grief. I resolved to be more mindful in future and not to tell my wife. (Generally, she is less impressed with me than I would like, and this would not help. She doesn't read this site.)

Another incident happened when I was carrying my heavy bike up a long set of steps and paused to catch my breath. I noticed some people looking at me. "We were just going to offer to carry your bike up."

"Not necessary," I replied "but thank you!"

I often forget that to an outsider I look 66, while in my own mind I am 35. 

ALTRUISM

Later, on the banks of the beautiful Ottawa River I contemplated the role of altruism in our lives.
The best example is parenthood. Raising children is truly an act of love. Giving. Self sacrifice.
Not exactly appreciated in a society run by people encouraging gender confusion and depopulation.

The next best example is pets. That's 'parenthood lite.' Another example when we help wild animals, like Jim Hawkins who helped the bear who had a cheeseball jar stuck on its head for two weeks, and was going to die.

"He was just a little bear with a big problem," Hawkins told the Post Independent newspaper. "He was a two-year-old with a space helmet on." 

I can't think of any other common examples of altruism. "Serving your country" has become a bad joke. Can you help me with some more examples?

What my guardian angel did was an act of love. God is Love. He inspired me to "pay it forward." I like the idea that we are "our brother's keeper." That is Jesus' teaching. Love thy neighbour as thyself. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 

These teachings are the basis of civilization. Following them is spitting in the eye of the Satanists who run Western society, and disprove my "three laws of sociodynamics."

First Comment from Robert K:


The best story of apparent divine intervention in my family comes from my older brother.  In the 1950s he had taken his 14-year-old brother and his friend into a sandy desert in the USA, where they got stuck.  Their exertions just made the situation worse, indeed clearly hopeless.  It was brutally hot and it dawned on my brother that his imprudence might cost the lives of himself and the young men for whose safety he was responsible.  As he tells it, he finally abandoned any thought of solving their dilemma by themselves and said silently, in desperation:  "I can do nothing.  Please help if you can."  Immediately two husky fellows appeared walking out of nowhere in the desert, got them unstuck, and then walked on.  It was one of those inexplicable "life-changing experiences".

The "Guardian Angel" article was light and entertaining....A nice shift (for a change...)...
Throw these unusual articles in once in a while for fun...

I have personally "STOPPED" looking to lightly assist people in the street....
(women in broken down cars at dusk ...for instance..or people who look "lost"...) because they
are usually very nasty, suspicious, paranoid...(I don't look scary either... I'm a 50 YO clean cut, fit, hetero looking White male )...

It could be "LEARNED HATE" towards hetero White males due to anti-White male media bombardment...
or a high incidence of people (especially woman...) ingesting psychotropic drugs like SSRIs......
I do NOT notice this general insane nastyness on foreign born, young pretty Eastern European females who mostly seem normal and friendly towards me, look me in the eyes, smile and actually appreciate honest compliments....

I remember a couple of years ago noticing a nasty 8 YO fat kid bullying a skinny kid half his size (both White...)
in a parking lot....I DARED not intervene (although I had the urge to...) because of the stigma of being branded a "pervert" for talking to children in the street....

Just simply looking at another person today on the street could "freak them out"....
I remember glancing (not "leering") at pretty girls and them usually becoming shy and sweet....
Most of the time today this will usually get you an INSANE NASTY defensive stare from amerikan White girls and women in return....

Years ago, I was stupid enough to run out of gas while driving Interstate-10 through the Florida panhandle. So I left my wife in the car and started hiking toward a gas station I saw miles before. Shortly, a car pulled up behind me with three rough-looking guys inside. No sooner did I think, "Uh-oh, I'm in big trouble." when a van load of young adults from a local church pulled in front of me and offered to help. Indeed, they were literally driving around looking for folks to help in Jesus' name.

They took me to a gas station and even offered to pay for gas and a container but I declined. Over the years I've thought many times about their kindness just when I needed it the most and it could well be that if it had not been for them, I wouldn't be sitting here typing this. I shudder to think what might have happened to my wife.

Needless to say, I never ran out of gas again.

Call me a cynic, Henry, but it's your Three Laws of Human Interaction themselves that cause me not to bother too much with anyone.

I've grown tired of people who only see me as a means to an end and only find value in me when they need something I can provide them.

Here in southern Ontario, the vast majority of people are incredibly adept at calculating the "what's in it for me?" factor at every social interaction. In fact, I've never seen a more socially retarded environment in my life. One has to "get to know" someone for years and years before being admitted into anything resembling real friendship. It's just not worth the Herculean effort one needs to put in for the outside chance you might end up with a real friend. You're already severely handicapped if you have nothing of material value to provide to these people.

Don't get me wrong. I played the game in the past and didn't like it. I even resorted to showing people who I really am and displayed my caring and helpful side, but to no avail. People expect you to be around for them when they need it, but essentially tell you (without actually verbalizing it) to go to hell when you need them.

Lately, people are too busy playing that infernal Pokemon Go game to notice anyone else anyhow.

It's for these reasons that I don't like people anymore and I essentially stick to myself.


Marco said (July 23, 2016):

Yes you are correct, to be our brothers keeper is an ancient precept that should be the basis of all good civilization; however, psychopaths rule our societies and these people are diametrically opposed to this notion. They live selfishly, cowardly, only and always looking to themselves. And also unfortunately these demons (psychopathy = demonic) commit a terrible sin by trying to make everyone under them in society psychopathic as well, so as to justify themselves to the people and their ruthless tyrannical rule.

We have to be on defense against this, because if we are not on guard we will easily become selfish and spiritually die. Life is not meant to be lived for your self, true living and life is to be found in living for God and another; having the spirit of self-sacrifice really is the most beautiful way to live life - look at Jesus, look at heroic soldiers and people throughout history:
"Love your God with your whole mind, heart, and soul. And your brother as yourself." God Himself has told us this is the most important teaching. The giver of Life has told us that this is the way life is to be lived, what are we waiting for? Spiritual bliss and grace await us if we just have the courage to deny ourselves and live according to this ancient teaching.


Thankfully though, some people simply are not so base as to fall into this trap. Many people do though, and when the world ends and they stand before God, they will finally be ashamed of their cowardice and selling out to the devil in disguise of their disgusting ego.

But yeah, I am meeting a lot of good people this summer in Ottawa. Maybe the city is experiencing a miracle and going through some sort of spiritual shift. I don't know, but this summer I am meeting a lot of people that put me to shame. I got to try and be more friendly haha.

Where I stay now is with other homeless veterans at a medical establishment in St. Louis, MO. Buildings near us where we live house and treat those with medical needs. Many are in wheelchairs.

I go to these buildings for meetings and am always helping those who seem to be in need of help. This is largely due to the fact that I did patient care in hospitals for a dozen years before my decade doing pharmaceutical sales. When I did pharmaceutical sales I feel I did not help others, so it conflicted with my true nature.

Often no one notices me helping others which is fine, because I do not help others for recognition. If someone appears to be in need of help in some way I'm glad to help them.

Here I am now going to Catholic masses with a priest named father John. He appears to be fairly healthy for the age of 73, but his knees are shot from activities in his youth. So I also help my priest when I see him for these masses.

I feel helping others should always be done if you have the ability to help others in need.
