1. (MO had just heard on the late-night news that the European moneychangers had changed their minds and foolishly agreed to support the dollar again! As he began to drift off to sleep, this came in a strong foreign accent:)
2. POOR EUROPE IS WAITING FOR GOD'S PROPHET TO TELL HER WHAT TO DO! We have to warn Europe she's got to cut her anchor to Amerika or she'll sink! She must not give Amerika all these artificial respirations and transfusions! Why should Europe save Amerika? They should just cut her loose and let her die!--Otherwise they'll bleed themselves to death! We've got to tell Europe to let Amerika go! They're putting their eggs in the wrong basket!
3. THEY CAN'T SEEM TO GET OVER THE "AMERIKAN DREAM," but that's not where God's going! They need to get on with their Socialism, and damn the Fascism of Amerika! Let Amerika sink and go down, and then they can move in and take her over, and run her the way she ought to be run!--Humble her!
4. IT'S TIME FOR THE RAPE OF AMERIKA, but they're trying to respect her! She doesn't deserve respect: She's an old Whore! But they're trying to treat her like a lady, instead of socking it to her, and paying her off! A Whore?--You just pay her off, and you leave! You don't try to rescue her!--Just pay her off and take off, and let her sink in her own mire! She's not like a wife that you try to save and take care of! Europe is trying to be married to Amerika, when they should cut her loose like a Whore!
5. BUT THE CAPITALISTIC FINANCIERS OF EUROPE: THEY'RE ALL LIKE A WHOLE BUNCH OF PIMPS! (Or Panders: Those who solicit business for a whore, and share in her wages and profits.)--They've got a whole lot invested in this Whore, and they don't want to lose it. So they try to save her so they can save their investments, and they're trying to get the rest of the world to ____ her, so they can save her and continue to make a little money on her. She thinks she's their owner, but they're her owner, and unless they rescue her, she'll die; but they're trying to rescue her to save their own investments. She's going to die anyway, and they're going to lose anyway, so the quicker they cut her loose, the better!
6. IT'S TOTALLY ARTIFICIAL FOR THEM TO SUPPORT THE DOLLAR! If they'd just let the dollar sink down to where it belongs, Amerika would sink! But the whole trouble is, they each own too much of a share in the Whore, and they don't want to lose their investments. So the money pimps get together and agree to support her dollars when she's sick and not earning them any money. They think she's going to get well again, and they don't realize she's just going to die, and they're pouring their money down an ____ hole--hers!
7. THEY'D BE BETTER OFF TO LET HER DIE IN PEACE FINANCIALLY, THAN TO HAVE HER HAVE TO BE KILLED IN WAR! Better just to let her die of her diseases, than to let the police catch her--God's police! 'Cause if God's police go into action, God's police are going to catch the pimps too, and judge them, and they're all going to be fined and lose, because they supported the Whore! It's unlawful to be a pimp and pander!
8. (You're a funny little child and can't understand all this high finance, so God has to give you a simple little illustration like this that you can understand:)
She's a big fat Whore,
Whose _____'s awful sore,
And whose profiteers are pore,
'Cause she is no more!
9. SEE, THE ONLY WAY THEY'RE GOING TO SUPPORT THE DOLLAR TO SUPPORT THE WHORE is by announcing to the world that they're going to support the dollar! In other words, they're going to pay them or redeem them. If her customers don't like her services, the pimps are saying: "Satisfaction guaranteed, or we'll give you a refund!" But too many people won't be satisfied, and everybody will be asking for a refund, 'cause she's an old worn out Whore, and she's too sick to satisfy, and her owners aren't going to be able to foot the bill! They just ought to cut her off and let her die!
10. SHE THINKS SHE OWNS THE PIMPS, BUT THE PIMPS OWN HER! But if they sink with her, she does own them, see? But if they're smart pimps, they'll cut her off and let her die.--But we already told her she's going to die! She's mad at us!--And now we have to tell her pimps to let her go, 'cause they're just going to lose money, 'cause she's going to die!
11. SHE'S AN OLD WHORE!--She's old and ugly and diseased and proud and pompous! She's so selfish! She's cruel and destructive, and all her little European money pimps better dump her, or they'll go down with her! They have been making money from her hire, and they've been investing in her wages, but her wages and dollars are going to turn to ashes! They're going to be like sand between their teeth, like grit from her nitty-gritty!--And they're going to grind their teeth and hate her, 'cause she lost them money!
12. THEY EACH ONE BOUGHT A BIG SHARE IN HER EARNINGS--they own her dollars and stocks and stuff--and, now she's dying, they don't want to lose it. Now that she's dying and not earning any money, because she's sick and diseased and costs them money, they're trying to support her, and they're saying, "We have to save her to save our money!" But they're going to lose her and lose their money too!
13. IT WOULD BE BETTER, MUCH BETTER IF THEY LET HER DIE. It'd be far better if they'd just notify her customers that she'd sick and ready to die. But they keep taking their money and making promises they can't fulfill, because she's sick and she can't satisfy them, so they're going to be left holding the old bag, and they can't pay back the customers. It would be better if they didn't take any more customers and just told them: "She is too sick and too old, and she's dying, so don't give me any more money! It's too late! She's dead! She's gone!"
14. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING?--HER MONEY PIMPS ARE STILL SAYING, "OH, SHE'S A GREAT WHORE! She's satisfied many customers! She's still OK. She can still do you. She may be old and diseased and decrepit, but she can still make it. Give me your money, and you'll be satisfied!" But you know what?--She's going to die, and all these customers are going to demand their money back and say, "I didn't get satisfied! I didn't f__k your old Whore! She didn't deliver, and now you pay me back! I didn't get my f__k!"
15. AND POOR EUROPE! THE EUROPEAN MONEY PIMPS ARE LEFT HOLDING HER BAGFUL OF WORTHLESS DOLLARS, and they have to make them good and pay them back to the customers, because their Whore died! If they keep trying to support her, they're going to go bankrupt! They're trying to support her in her sickness and disease, and she can't service their customers. They're paying out good money to keep her alive, when she's going to die, and all that money is going down the drain--her drain!--All going down her ____ hole--when they ought to dump her!
16. YOU DON'T OWE NOTHING TO A WHORE!--You pay her, and that's it! But if you pay her and don't get value received, then you're mad and you want your money back! All her customers are going to be pounding on the doors of her money pimps demanding their money back, and saying, "She was sick and diseased and almost dying, and I couldn't even f__k her, I want my money back!" And the pimps, they'll say, "OK, we're going to support the dollar! We'll pay your money back! Don't worry!"--And they're going to go bankrupt trying to pay their money back and refund their customers' money!
17. AMERIKA THE WHORE HAS SEDUCED AND INFECTED THE WHOLE WORLD!--That old, ugly, diseased, broken-down Whore! She can't f__k any more, and all her money pimps who invested in her are going to go broke if they don't get out! They need to get their money and get out of her, lest they be partakers of her sins and they share her judgments! They better get out if they be God's people, blessed by God! They'll get out of the Whore Babylon and let her die, lest they be partakers of her sins! (Rev.17 & 18.)
18. BUT IF THEY BE FOOLISH PIMPS, THEY'LL THINK SHE'S STILL GOING TO LIVE and make them money, and they'll go broke--very broke! 'Cause they're pouring their money down her old diseased p__y hole, and they're still trying to use all of her dollar earnings to support her until they think maybe she get well again.--But she won't! She'll get very sick and die, and the hire of the Whore will mean nothing--worth nothing--if the Whore is dead! They're just losing money, just pouring her dollar earnings down her hole! She's not going to make it! They're going to lose it all, and it will serve them right for trying to support her!
19. WE HAVE TO WARN THEM, THOUGH, IT'S ONLY FAIR. The Prophets of God have to warn the leaders and the people to get out of the Whore and let her go, let her die, save their money. 'Cause she's sick unto death do us part! They've been married to the Whore, supporting her. Now she's dying, and they need to divorce her rather than trying to keep filling her bag with beans in the hope they will expand!
20. THEY MAKE A LOT OF MONEY ON HER, AND NOW THEY'RE GOING TO BE SORRY, because her dollars can't buy her f__ks any more, 'cause she's dying and almost done!--It's just like they're saying, "Here, here! Come! We'll buy your dollars so you can spend them on the Whore!--What they going to do when the Whore is no more? We have to warn the poor stupid pimps who bought a share in her cause they needed money. We have to warn them that she's dying!
21. (You give all my words to the people? You will withhold nothing? The people need to know! It is not fair to withhold the truth from the people!) (End of Allegory.)
22. THE ABOVE RATHER RAW REVELATION WILL BE A LITTLE ROUGH FOR SOME delicate and sensitive Systemite souls! But it is a very simple and almost childish illustration in the language of the streets, from a simple mind for simple minds, to very simply show clearly and in simple terms, exactly what's happening today in the world of high finance! You may not be an educated economist, nor a financial wizard, nor a fiscal financier, nor a monetary money merchant, nor a capitalizing capitalist, but any man in the street or woman of the world can understand this plain, pornographic picture of the brutal truth of this horrendous gory allegory or gruesome parabolic parallel!
23. ALL I KNOW IS, GOD GAVE IT, AND I BELIEVE, IT! And you better believe it, too! God really knows how to call a spade and a whore a whore, and He tells it like it really is, and where it's really at, like our hippie Children say! So, if you don't like the language, you can lump it, because God gave it, apparently, by one of His own simple but coarse, crude and illiterate little helpers, like the lingo of a lowly Limey laborer. So you can take it or leave it for what it is!
24. ALL I KNOW IS THAT THE PICTURE HERE OF AMERICA AND HER MONEY PIMPS AND LUCRE LOVERS AND CASH CUSTOMERS, and its warnings, basic principles and likely outcome, are amazingly similar, if not identical, to the picture God Himself paints of the mysterious Babylon, the Great Whore and Mother of Harlots, in the Book of Revelation in the Bible in which God Himself uses some pretty strong language, as He does in many other places in the Bible! As He so often does, here God draws a vivid view and remarkable representation like a caricature cartoon of radical realities, and forms it into a simple story like one of His plentiful parables to graphically illustrate His point, so even the simple may understand!
25. WE REMEMBER ALSO THAT A NUMBER OF GREAT BIBLE SCHOLARS, including Phillip Mauro and my own father, were convinced that the world capitalistic commercial System of merchant materialism is this Babylon, and the Great Whore of Revelation 14, 16-19, etc.! The great Oriental Prophet and miracle worker, Avak, who worked wonders in Iran some twenty or thirty years ago, discerning diseases and healing multitudes and even changing the weather, and converting multitudes of Mohammedans to faith in Jesus Christ, and who was even provided a palace and a guardian army unit by the Persian Government, was another great spiritual leader who believed this, particularly that America was the epitome of the Great Whore of Revelation, and, as such, would soon be destroyed according to these Scriptures! I sat at the feet of this marvelous Oriental mystic for many days learning the wonders of the Word and the revelations God had given him, including the fate of America, and the Socialism of Christ's coming Kingdom, and its amazing and practical design and Governmental structure!
26. WE'RE NOW CONVINCED THAT AVAK WAS PROBABLY RIGHT ABOUT AMERICA! She is certainly the head and leader of world Capitalism, and when she falls, the whole world capitalistic System is bound to fall with her! As she is the greatest and strongest enemy of world Socialism, her fall could result in nothing less than the ultimate triumphant succession of a socialistic one-world Government, such as predicted in Revelation 13 and 17 and elsewhere in the Bible!
27. AMERICA ALONE NOW STANDS IN THE WAY OF WORLDWIDE COMMUNISM, and she's standing more alone all the time! Even her former friends are deserting her and joining the world Socialist community, leaving America tottering and reeling on the brink of economic and political disaster, about to fall to her doom, a perfect picture of the certain self-destruction of corrupt Capitalism by its own selfish weakness and rottenness and cruelty, as predicted by both Marx and the Bible! So there you have it, in the plain Words of Scripture, especially in Revelation 17 and 18!--Read it!
28. LET US POINT OUT JUST A FEW OF THESE ASTONISHINGLY ACCURATE, DEADLY DESCRIPTIVE AND POWERFULLY POTENT PASSAGES in the Bible's own Words! It'll blow your mind! First of all, a description of the Great Whore, Symbol of the System, and Queen of Capitalism--so like America, it's almost uncanny!
29. I WILL SHOW UNTO THEE THE JUDGMENT OF THE GREAT WHORE that sitteth upon many waters and with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (intercourse, commerce or her business and trade)! ... And I saw a Woman sit upon a scarlet-coloured Beast full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns! ... And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY (America?), BABYLON (or CONFUSION) THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH! And I saw the Woman drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus! ...
30. AND THE WOMAN WHICH THOU SAWEST IS THAT GREAT CITY (LIKE URBANIZED AMERICA) WHICH REIGNETH OVER THE KINGS OF THE EARTH! ... The waters which thou sawest where the Whore sitteth are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues! ... The Beast that thou sawest ... shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit and go into Perdition, and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder! ... The seven heads are seven mountains (or Governments) on which the Woman sitteth. (World Capitalistic Commercialism has straddled every major world empire from the beginning of history, and will even attempt to saddle herself on the final world dictatorship of the Antichrist's one-world Government!--Could this final manifestation of the Whore be America herself?--She's already attempting to befriend the Red Beast, in spite of their differences!)
31. ...THESE ARE SEVEN KINGS (or kingdoms, world powers or empires): Five are fallen (Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece), and one is (Rome at the time John was writing this), and the other is not yet come (the coming one-world dictatorship of the Antichrist); and when he cometh, he must continue a short space (seven years--See Daniel 9:27, and the explanation of this passage in our basic class book, Revolution for Jesus!, with this and other Bible Prophecy lessons available to you for a small donation if you will write requesting it).
32. AND THE TEN HORNS WHICH THOU SAWEST ARE TEN KINGS which have received no kingdom as yet, but receive power as kings one hour with the Beast. (In other words, for only a short time during his brief reign.) These have one mind and shall give their power and strength unto the Beast (ten leading world powers who will cooperate with the Antichrist). ... And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the Whore and shall make her desolate and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire! (America, the final manifestation of the Whore of world capitalistic Commercialism, will be destroyed by those she attempts to conquer!--The ten: Could there be one more major European nation that's going to join the Common Market or the European Economic Community, such as Russia?--Wouldn't that be a shocker!)
33. FOR GOD HATH PUT IT IN THEIR HEARTS TO FULFILL HIS WILL and to agree and give their kingdom unto the Beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled! (It's the will of God!--Is Europe going to finally wake up and cooperate with the Red Beast to destroy the American Whore?) ... For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies! (What a picture of America!)
34. ... COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF HER SINS, and that ye receive not of her plagues! For her sins have reached unto Heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities! (Better get out of that old Whore!--She's a sinking ship! God is about to judge her!) Reward her even as she rewarded you (with the same cruelties of war and desolation with which she has afflicted the rest of the world!), and double unto her double according to her works: In the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double! (Sock it to her!)
35. HOW MUCH SHE HATH GLORIFIED HERSELF AND LIVED DELICIOUSLY: So much torment and sorrow give her!--For she saith in her heart, I sit a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow! (Ask almost any American who voted for Nitler!--That's what they think!--After only two hundred years, America thinks she's going to rule the world forever!--She has a surprise coming!)
36. THEREFORE SHALL HER PLAGUES COME IN ONE DAY, death and mourning and famine, and she shall be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her! And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her and lament for her when they shall see the smoke of her burning, standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that Great City Babylon, that Mighty City!--For in one hour is thy judgment come! (Sounds like God is going to make short shrift of her in some sudden deadly blow that will almost totally destroy her with fire!--Could this be an atomic strike or sudden sabotage and revolution?--Or all three simultaneously?--Anyhow, it's quick!)
37. AND THE MERCHANTS OF THE EARTH SHALL WEEP AND MOURN OVER HER, for no man buyeth their merchandise any more! (Rich America is the world's biggest market and customer to whom nearly every merchant in the world dreams of selling his goods at the high prices she can afford!) The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her (most of Europe and the rest of the World counts their wealth in dollars and American customers!), shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing and saying, Alas, alas! ... For in one hour so great riches is come to naught! (Sounds like sudden destruction and the end of the American dollar!)
38. AND EVERY SHIP MASTER AND ALL THE COMPANY IN SHIPS, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off and cried when they saw the smoke of her burning! (Sounds like the rest of the world is going to witness her destruction from a distance, as though it would be too dangerous to even get close to her!) ... Alas, alas, that Great City wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness!--For in one hour is she made desolate! (Suddenly!)
39. REJOICE OVER HER, THOU HEAVEN AND YE HOLY APOSTLES, AND PROPHETS! (The Children of God!) For God hath avenged you on her! ... Thus with violence shall that Great City Babylon (The American Whore!) be thrown down and shall be found no more at all!--And the voice of harpers and musician and of pipers and trumpeters shall be heard no more at all in thee! (The Children of God must be all gone by this time!) For thy merchants were the great men of the Earth, and by thy sorceries (the deceitfulness of riches and the witchcraft of wealth!) were all nations deceived! (American affluence is the dream of every country the world over, and her luxuries, sins and violence, from her music to her crimes, are imitated by nations around the world!)
40. --AND IN HER WAS FOUND THE BLOOD OF PROPHETS AND OF SAINTS (the future of some Children of God in America?), and of all that were slain upon the earth! (America has been involved and to blame for nearly every major war of this century, as well as a good many of the past, and has wreaked more destruction of war on the world than any other nation in history!--Nay, more than all other nations combined in all the wars throughout all history! She is the greatest warmonger the world has ever known, and the greatest destroyer they will ever see!--And even so shall be her own destruction!)
41. AND AFTER THESE THINGS I HEARD A GREAT VOICE OF MUCH PEOPLE IN HEAVEN SAYING, ALLELUIA! Salvation and glory and honor and power unto the Lord our God! For true and righteous are His judgments: For He hath judged the Great Whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication! ... And her smoke rose up for ever and ever! (For America it'll be Hell here and Hell hereafter, even as she has made it Hell on Earth for other countries!)
42. ... BABYLON THE GREAT (THE GREAT CONFUSION OR THE GREAT WHORE!) IS FALLEN, IS FALLEN, and is become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird! ... Because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication! (Her wars for commerce, trade wars for the intercourse of Capitalism! Every war is fought for the love of money and the lust for power!) And Great Babylon (The Great Confusion, the Great Whore, the American Mystery!) came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath! (As she has made war on others, even so shall God make war on her!)
43. AMERICA'S PIMPS, THE MERCHANTS AND MONEYCHANGERS OF THE EARTH WHO HAVE BEEN MADE RICH BY HER, PARTICULARLY EUROPE, HAD BETTER DUMP THEIR DOLLARS AND ABANDON THEIR WHORE, as in the Lord's little allegory which inspired this warning, or they'll soon be crying, "Alas, alas! ... In one hour so great riches is come to naught!"--Abandon her and her dollars or you'll be sorry!
