I think Julius Caesar is my favourite play as well and don't forget that the current thinking is that there is a lot of hidden Catholicism in his plays. The Catholics will be called Romans a lot of the time. Anyway he is very good alright like so many of the other great Irish poets and playwrights ...
SSPX distribute Shakespeare? Never knew that.
I suppose they tell you Shakespeare he was a Catholic? More informed say he was Francis Bacon, anti-Catholic.
Here is a bit I read lately:
Shakespeare’s (Bacon’s) knowledge of Hermetic, neo-Platonic and cabbalistic teaching appears by way of certain Rosicrucian themes found in As You Like It; Love’s Labour Lost; Venus and Adonis; and the Sonnets.
‘In Bacon’s New Atlantis we have a vision of a science ruled by sages of Solomon’s House (Magi) and the Father of Solomon’s house rides in a chariot surmounted by a golden sun. It is possible that the character of Berowne in Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost is based on Bruno [arch heretic] perhaps also the two pedants, Don Armado and Holofernes, who are the foils of the lovers. Some of the rituals connected with Freemasonry may be derived from the Hermetic writings, and Mozart’s Magic Flute, which is concerned with Freemasonry, has a temple of Osiris and Egyptian priests.’ ---J. Trusted: Physics and Metaphysics: Routledge, 1991, p.40.
Shakespeare is also awash with Freemasonic propaganda, symbols, allegory, coded messages and innuendos. In the Comedy of Errors:
‘DUKE: One of these men is Genius to the other;
And so of these: which is the natural man,
And which is the spirit? Who deciphers them?’ (Act V, sc,I)
The ‘genius’ is, of course, Bacon himself, and he teases the world by asking who is the natural son and who is the spiritual Son, profaning Jesus when He asked the Pharisees: “What do you think of the Christ? Whose son is He?” (Matt.22:42) wherein Jesus was trying to draw out of them a recognition of the that Spiritual Sonship by which He is introduced in the opening sentence of the New Testament, where in the Melchisedech sense of (Ps 109:4) He is termed a Son of David, in contra-distinction to David’s natural son and successor Solomon in whose name the rival ‘Allegorical Temple’ was/is being built, a distinction of such grave import that the very reality of the two Kinds of sonship forms the martial backdrop to the allegory key that the former Pharisee-Adept Saul would later as Paul give to the Galatians (4:24).
Since it was first disclosed by Dodd and others that Francis Bacon was that wholly accomplished writer Shakespeare, many ‘experts’ have dismissed the notion as nonsense, and no doubt, will continue to do so. Such critiques may well succeed on the mundane level where it makes no difference who really wrote the Shakespearian works. On an esoteric level however, the level at which the [war of Genesis 3;15 is being fought] was/is being enacted, Dodd wrote with understanding and authority, that which is reflected only in the higher initiates. From our own studies we believe Shakespeare himself gives the game away when he acts totally out of character by his vicious attack on the integrity of (St) Joan of Arc in his play Henry VI, treating the English as having ‘God as our fortress’ and the French as being one with the ‘witches and the help of hell.’ (Pt.I, Act.II, Sc.1) [not very SSPX like] The likes of Bacon would be very well aware that Joan la Puchelle was used by God in this war of Principalities and Powers. Consequently, whereas he was a man able to engage and parry as equal with anyone from King to the most lowly wretch, all of whom are manifested in the writings of Shakespeare, he could not contain himself when making reference to a superior on the Melchisedech field of combat, Joan of Arc, now a saint, whom Diana Vaughan was pleased to invoke in her war against her former colleagues in Freemasonry
‘In the first part of Henry the Sixth Jeanne d’Arc addresses the Duke of Burgundy in a speech of thirty-three lines. This speech is an absolutely faithful version of a letter in France written by the Maid of Orleans to the then Duke of Burgundy and dated July 17th, 1429. There is no historical authority for this letter which never saw the light of print till discovered by the Historian of the house of Burgundy in 1780. Bacon in his travels might easily have seen this letter: in fact the author of this play must have done so. Shakespeare [Bill Shaksper] was never within miles of it.’ ---Walter Ellis’s The Shakespeare Myth
Bacon’s Shakespeare and the ‘Holy Grail’
‘To be, or not to be, that is the question:’ --- Hamlet Act III, Sc. I.
Thus goes the most quoted allegory in the history of literature, written of course by the Hermetic occult philosopher and proto-Mason Francis Bacon under his pseudonym of Shakespeare. Esoterically, it asks the simplest but most important question about God that can occur to man: To be (is He) distinct from the cosmos or not to be (or not) distinct from the cosmos? Is God a person or a principle; that is the question? Shakespeare, or rather Francis Bacon, is spelling out the battle on hand, the ‘Holy Grail’ of all secret societies, the secret behind [all attempts, especially pseudo-science] to destroy belief in God as distinct from the universe, replacing Him with a ‘god as force,’ with Pantheism, a god-concept not distinct from the universe and all that is in it.
Perhaps the greatest exponents of these two mutually exclusive worldviews of the Melchisedech order, God as distinct and God as not distinct, are St Thomas Aquinas and Francis Bacon respectively. As God raises great intellectual saints to combat heresies in the world, so too must Lucifer recruit and illuminate men of exceptional but prideful intelligence to do his work for him. Now it matters not one iota to him whether his work is done by willing men or unwitting men, by men conscious of what they do or men deceived into doing what they do, the net result will be the same, the advancement of Naturalism at the expense of Catholicism. Satan, we repeat, Jesus told us, was a liar from the beginning, but men cannot perceive just how good a liar Satan is. Accordingly, the human intellect had better know how to retain a proper grace-assisted discernment as to how one’s intellectual asset is to be deployed and developed as the Creator intended, or one will surely find oneself entrenched in Satan’s lies. Now whereas the battle for human minds, and thus our eternal souls, began in the Garden of Eden, this quest accelerated during the Renaissance, or more specifically, with the resurgence of Hermetic Rosicrucian Freemasonry. To influence and control society, apart from a complete monopoly of the world’s monetary and commercial institutions, one must also dominate human knowledge on earth. The information industry must be commandeered and then regulated to serve their ends. Thus universities, academies, colleges, are seen as places of influence, as well as newspapers, television, publishing houses, the distribution business etc., are all targeted by Freemasonry. As to how successful the proto-mason Bacon has been, note it is the works of Shakespeare, not the Sacred Scripture that are on the curriculum of every student learning literature in the world today.
Amid claims by Catholics that Shakespeare writings are most Catholic, we see that Shakespeare has become more popular than the Bible, and is certainly quoted more often these days. The works of Shakespeare have precluded any Catholic author or work from attaining such a status in English literature. If Freemasonry set out to dominate all the instruments of knowledge, this cannot be better demonstrated than through the genius of the words supposedly written by that uneducated illiterate groom from sixteenth century England. Scholars have shown us that Francis Bacon was also one of the first naturalists, rationalists, socialists, liberals, communists, call them whatever you like. This would pit him in opposition to hierarchy, the Melchisedech government in the Christian world. We mention this only to confirm Francis Bacon was the complete ‘secret antichrist,’ opposed to Christian philosophy, priests and kings.
