Podcast: The Amateur Society – Friendship And Fellowship – 04.23.2018

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about the meaning, importance, and characteristics of friendship and fellowship! After a fantastic conference in Canton, Ohio this past weekend I was inspired to have a discussion about how friendship is structured and how we should approach the concept in our lives. Relationships are clearly important, but how many of us have thought more deeply about their relevance and importance. We start with a definition and then expand to many different questions, typing in worldview and concluding with a heartfelt plea to focus on these critical matters. I am currently setting up a new computer, so please pardon some choppy audio segments. Thanks for joining us on The Amateur Society!

From the Desk of Sgt Tim: Polarization Breaking Point

The views expressed herein are solely the views of Sgt Tim and do not reflect the views of Doug Hagmann, Joe Hagmann, or the Hagmann Report. 

There is power in words. The ancients knew it…anyone that has studied any of the various occult systems knows that many of their teachings centers around not just the incantation of words popularized in cartoons and TV, but in the writing of words, especially on objects such as stone that would stand the test of time. In the Norse system of magic, the power was achieved through the writing of words in runes and the drawing of elaborate symbols that channeled the energy from the spirit world into the physical world. In some systems of Qabbalah, each letter has power and the arrangement of those letters draws the power into the medium on which the letters are written.

In addition, the spoken word has power, as I referenced above, not just through incantation, but names have power. The ancients believed that many of the demons and devils, and even the deities (which in my belief, they were one and the same) they worshipped, had names that they were to be called by and then they had “true” names and the knowledge of the “true” name would give you power over that entity. Because I know that words have power, this is why you will never hear or see me write the name of the enemy of our Lord, and our enemy, because to do so draws his attention to you. And yes, I know that we have been given the power to tread over our enemies, but just because I can call in an airstrike and drop a 500lb bomb on the heads of my enemies doesn’t mean I am going to broadcast on his channels, to use military logic. Because there is power in words.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at amateursociety@gmail.com.

This evening we will be touching on the Orlando attack as well as current events in economics before turning to our central topic of the evening: modernity. The definition of words is extremely important to our worldviews, and many pivotal misunderstandings can arise from a lack of perspective on various key concepts. Simply put, every subsequent generation considers itself ‘modern’ simply because they are the present and the rest of history is past. We need to be careful when we draw these linguistic lines or else we risk having tunnel vision about the past. When we fall into that trap our understanding of history suffers, and when we fail to understand history we will make the same mistakes as previous generations despite our enlightened, ‘modern’ viewpoint.

We welcome your participation in an open, honest conversation where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions we don’t typically investigate. Thanks for your time and we look forward to speaking with you!
