Defeating dogma has never been easy. On many occasions, the individual can become disheartened that his efforts appear to have come to nought. Taking my own experiences over the last 8 years, during which time I took on the government bank known as the Bradford and Bingley over my void mortgage and ended up being callously and criminally evicted, I can perfectly understand how and why such a state of mind may come about. The voice of my ego will tell me things like ‘it was all for nothing; you worked all those years for the house and now you have fuck all; you should have played the game; it was pointless to risk it all in a game which you could never win; the odds were stacked against you; it was hopeless from the beginning; look at you, penniless and for what point?’ etc.
At such times my self-criticising ego may bemoan the fact that this website doesn’t attract much interest and that no-one is paying attention to the work. This only serves to reinforce the egoic thinking that all the effort has indeed been pointless.
However, being essentially nihilistic in origin, such thinking does not serve me. The RogueMale site has never been about attracting huge numbers of people: the writings are often lengthy and therefore the audience for them is of a particular quality – namely those who are able to read fluently and with the required levels of discernment and critical thinking. It is a case of quality over quantity and it was ever thus.
Popularity is not something I have ever courted. It belongs to the world of the glib, the smooth operator and the one who seeks approval outside himself:
“… the neurotic anxiously seeks the esteem and affection of the largest number of people…”
Jacques Ellul, ‘Propaganda: the formation of Men’s Attitudes.’
The world is awash with psychological operations which stem from many sources, particularly religion and all forms of external governance. Most if not all of these ‘psy-ops’ are dependent upon the continued perpetration of untruths, lies that are repeated so often, they become accepted by the uncritical mind as being the truth. When those in (false) ‘authority’ repeat those lies, they operate as agents of dogma:
a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true: the Christian dogma of the Trinity | the rejection of political dogma.
mid 16th cent.: via late Latin from Greek dogma ‘opinion,’ from dokein ‘seem good, think,’ from Greek dogmatikos “pertaining to doctrines,” from dogma (genitive dogmatos) “opinion, tenet,” literally “that which one thinks is true,” from dokein “to seem good, think” (from PIE root *dek- “to take, accept”). Related: Dogmatical (c. 1600).
As the discerning one knows, the truth is simply that which is so.
Dogma, as defined above, may be true but, more regularly, it is false. As such it can be used to promote falsehoods. Interestingly, the fallacy of the appeal to authority is what often underpins a dogma, as can be exemplified by the religious dogmas relied upon by the Vatican (or other organised religions).
Throughout the pages of this website, it is stated that the Great British Mortgage Swindle is a fraud of monstrous proportions, that exists largely due to the inability of the people to understand just how it operates, both in terms of finance and the legal system.
Its operation is dependent upon the miseducation of the general populace (which thus has no ability to think critically) and the fake authorities that are used to shore up the swindle. However, its continued existence is hanging by a precarious thread, which is constantly unwinding as more and more of those people who are capable of critical thinking grasp the nature and the workings of the swindle. That unravelling thread is the pretence that the mortgage is lawful – that there has been consideration (an actual loan) on the part of the bank, that there has been a meeting of the minds of all parties (a necessary requirement for a valid contract to exist) and that every aspect of the ‘agreement’ has been disclosed. The absence of any one of which is enough to render the mortgage ‘agreement’ void ab initio.
Over the last 8 years I have taken part in or been present at many court hearings for (false) possession claims made by banks where the lawyers for the banks and the judges sweat their way through the proceedings, fumble for words and nervously shift in their seats due to the fact that they are being confronted with the truth of the matter:
- No loan has taken place – the credit (‘money’) for the purchase of the house was created out of thin air.
- The mortgage deed is void, a lie put to paper, fraudulently signed before any ‘advance’ has taken place and illegally executed before the ‘mortgagor’ was in possession of the house.
- There is no valid contract for a mortgage in place as required at law, signed by all parties.
These are the facts. They are not based on any fallacy. Indeed, any one who is able to point out any errors in fact or reason is invited to do so. The fact that no conveyancing solicitor ever points out the unlawful aspects of the mortgage agreement he is advising his client to enter renders the entire profession liable to a negligence claim once a mortgagor has sustained losses. That link demonstrates how one senior judge, Mr Ross Cranston, former solicitor general to the Labour government, took it upon himself – or, as is more likely the case, carried out instructions from his handlers – to pervert the course of justice, just like all his cohorts did. It is fair to state that he was most nervous in the hearing as he went about shutting down a valid claim against the conveyancing solicitor and that his void judgement was pre-written (he did not retire to ‘deliberate’ but launched straight into it).
His extreme discomfort (and that of the legal profession and the British judiciary as a whole) was caused by his reliance upon dogma which flies in the face of the facts and reason. Dogma which exists as consequence of brainwashing (‘education’) and which blinds him and his ilk to the truth.
Thus, when presented with the facts, it is often the case that the judges will resort to the dogmatic expression,
“Well, you got the house didn’t you?”
Or, the solicitor will falsely claim that the mortgagor’s defence has “no basis in law”, often citing another such case where a miscarriage of justice took place as proof that the mortgagor’s claim is “hopeless”. Alternatively, the solicitor will falsely claim that the mortgagor is a ‘vexatious litigant’.
Thus it follows that both judge and solicitor are reliant upon dogma. The judiciary repeats the line in a desperate and underhand attempt to get the mortgagor into agreement that a loan took place (after all, if no loan took place then the entire proceedings are null and void and the bank is committing fraud by bringing the claim in the first place, with its CEO and minions all guilty of perjury too, for without consideration by the bank, there can be no valid contract and no money is due because no actual loan ever occurred).
A solicitor who defends a bank in such matters is totally dependent upon the fallacy known as the appeal to authority, a fake judicial authority that by failing to rule, time after time, upon the facts, has individually and collectively perverted the course of justice in order for the illusion to continue.
“It’s not what we don’t know that hurts us, it’s what we do know that isn’t so.”
The truth of this statement is plain and whilst it accurately applies to #TGBMS, it is applicable to any field of knowledge.
This aphorism is wholly applicable to the British Court System and all those banking acolytes and apologists who peddle the dogma that the 11.2 million mortgages in Britain are in any way valid.
Challenging its dogmas is a costly and demoralising exercise, for sure but it is necessary to do so in order that the racket may fall and, be sure of it, it will collapse for its roots are rotten to the core.
Rest assured, those dogma dominoes are there to be toppled and it only takes one finger from one individual to begin the fall. Roll on the release of the new and improved The Great British Mortgage Swindle, the film that is guaranteed to not just knock down the dominoes but obliterate them.
Finally, to all those who may be experiencing doubt and frustration over the state of the world today and the refusal of many to wake up to the tyranny that exists all around them, though your audience may be small and some may appear not to be listening, your efforts are worthwhile – keep knocking down the dominoes and never underestimate the power of what you do to have an effect.
