My Neo-Gnostic Christian Discernment Regarding The Pedagogy Of The Oppressed Method Being Pushed On California School Children

by Travis Mateer

The attempt to reduce spiritual experiences to words is quite difficult and often frustrates the person trying to describe what happened to them. It’s important to try, though, especially if you are going to appeal to the bio-medical security state for a religious exemption for their emergency-authorized gene therapy program.

This post isn’t about my Neo-Gnostic Christianity, though. It’s about how an old religious practice of blood sacrifice is being foisted on California school kids and my spiritual hunch (called discernment) that our Luciferian power elite are using old Aztec gods to troll Christians.

If you’re still with me, let’s take a look at the new curriculum trolling Christians for a reaction. Here’s the “theoretical” aspiration of California’s new indoctrination scheme:

In theoretical terms, the new ethnic studies curriculum is based on the “pedagogy of the oppressed,” developed by Marxist theoretician Paolo Freire, who argued that students must be educated about their oppression in order to attain “critical consciousness” and, consequently, develop the capacity to overthrow their oppressors. Following this dialectic, the model curriculum instructs teachers to help students “challenge racist, bigoted, discriminatory, imperialist/colonial beliefs” and critique “white supremacy, racism and other forms of power and oppression.” This approach, in turn, enables teachers to inspire their pupils to participate in “social movements that struggle for social justice” and “build new possibilities for a post-racist, post-systemic racism society.”

Now, as a Neo-Gnostic Christian, I am VERY AGAINST the religious rationalizations of western colonialism. That said, having kids recite chants to sun worshipping heart-munchers isn’t my idea of preparing the kiddos to overthrow their oppressors.

Here’s more Californication for the school kids:

The curriculum recommends that teachers lead their students in a series of indigenous songs, chants, and affirmations, including the “In Lak Ech Affirmation,” which appeals directly to the Aztec gods. Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka—whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism—asking him for the power to be “warriors” for “social justice.” Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking “healing epistemologies” and “a revolutionary spirit.” Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for “liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization,” after which students shout “Panche beh! Panche beh!” in pursuit of ultimate “critical consciousness.”

The chants have a clear implication: the displacement of the Christian god, which is said to be an extension of white supremacist oppression, and the restoration of the indigenous gods to their rightful place in the social justice cosmology. It is, in a philosophical sense, a revenge of the gods.

I wouldn’t have written this post if I thought California’s new curriculum was just a west coast aberration. No, California is a cultural trend-setter, so what is seeded there spreads everywhere.

The image above is a screen shot of some new Lego figures being added to the Ninjago series. I picked up the set at Target immediately and integrated it into my narrative delivery device.

This close up occludes the context of who these new figures are collaborating with in my Gnostic brick world. I’m hoping to use this world to help tell my fictional story about a humble little college town called Zula.

Of final note (and this just popped out at me) the name of the set I purchased yesterday (with the cheery looking fellow pictured above in his headdress) is THE KEEPERS’ VILLAGE. If that sounds familiar (think Finders) you are further down the rabbit hole than most.
