This Google doodle celebrates the birth of renowned artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec on November 24th 1864 Albi, France. There is a great deal of significance to this location. It was the region the Cathars a Christian sect that was deemed heresy by Pope Innocent III. In legion with the French King Philip II what followed was the Albigensian Crusade. This was an epoch period in history. The schisms in the faith led to years of war and conflict and the notorious INQUISITION. The battle for control of the planet is still in its throes, and the Roman church is still a player. The quest for a world dominion is the desire to wrest the planet from God and his creation man and turn it to a slave state controlled by evil. For those with eyes to see, it is very clear. For those without that is the burden and the message.
This Pedro Berruguete work of the 15th century depicts a story of Saint Dominic and the Albigensians, in which the texts of each were cast into a fire, but only Saint Dominic's proved miraculously resistant to the flames.
The first word in the doodle is OGLE. It means to stare at in a lecherous or unflattering manner. So those of us with eyes to see will observe the drawing on the canvas as the dissolution of the previous states and the creation of a New World Order under the guise of progress, but actually an unseating of the institutions we have come to understand like civil laws and codified rights and freedoms. The primary failure is the class of person termed the OOGLE which is repeated once in the painting. Since this was not the original but the Google version, the message is clear. An oogle is a person devoid of street smarts in slang. They have little understanding of the things that really matter and care little about that. They are prisoners of their fate. Some of them will see the realities of their existence, but they are few. G is being drawn in a picture before the picture as the leader of the class to provide instruction and a way out. The background picture is the classic Moulin Rouge nightclub poster that made Henri an icon. It represents the people trapped in the paradigm of what Rome called bread and circuses a diversion created to obscure the crime.
… Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses
(Juvenal, Satire 10.77–81)
The Troup de Mlle EGLANTINE which means rose is tres important. It is revealing. As the dancers raise their skirts they tease the observer with what is hidden. In the geopolitical spectrum that is the truth about what all this hype of globalization truly is. It is dark. Their legs wear black stockings. The reality is masked by the white dresses. The story is a fabric of lies. As time advances and things are revealed the dark side is exposed. The dance comes with a kick as the Can Can was practiced on stage. That implies a surprise element of force is going to be applied while we OGLE at the diversion. Of course it can all be assuaged. All you have to do is listen to the G.
Jane Avril, poster, 1893, by Toulouse-Lautrec.
Jane Avril adds an economic footnote. The pension money ran out upon her husband's death. It will run out for all of us upon the death of the present financial order. That will be something to kick about when the time comes. There will be no way to conceal it. There will be little bread and no more circuses. Even oogle will understand.
