- Few people in the West are aware that 500 years before
Christ was born, there lived a sage in China whose teachings are uncannily
similar to those of Jesus. His name was Mozi ??or the "tattooed
one." In his time he was a serious rival to Confucius. He also had
a million-man army at his disposal.
- Mozi preached that all men are created equal. Unlike
Confucius, who said relatives had first priority, he preached universal
love and caring for the poorest and weakest in society. Mozi also said
there was a heaven and an afterlife and that people who became rich through
unrighteous means would not be able to go there.
- Just as Jesus said it was better to teach a man to fish
and feed him for a lifetime than it was go give him a fish, so did Mozi
emphasize teaching the poor the skills they needed to care for themselves.
- The most important teaching of Mozi, however, was the
concept of "Gi" which has been translated as "righteousness"
but would be better translated as "life" or "love."
The idea is to draw a line and fight whenever Gi or life is being harmed.
- So, was Jesus copying Mozi? This is what informed speculation
can tell us: First of all, we know the Romans had trade with China because
we know they had silk. We also know the Library of Alexandria demanded
that all traders bring books. It is thus highly likely the scholars at
Alexandria had access to the works of Mozi.
- Jesus may well have been a Jewish scholar who learned
of the teachings of Mozi. Perhaps the Romans had Christ crucified because
he stirred up the poor and the downtrodden with Mohist ideas. What we
do know is that a Mohist (followers of Mozi NOT Mao) style rebellion appeared
in the Roman empire in the form of early Christianity.
- Mozi had a teaching that was similar to the idea of turning
the other cheek when hit. In his teachings the idea was to "show
obedience with your face while disobeying in your heart." This was
a form of passive disobedience that was very hard for rulers to overcome.
Nobody openly opposed them yet things did not get done. This may have
been what prompted the Roman emperors to try to adopt and subvert this
slave religion to their own ends. They also tacked on ideas, such as the
death and resurrection of the Sun God, from other ancient religions.
- This could explain some key differences between Mohism
and Christianity as is taught today. It was with great dismay when I
recently watched the leader of a Christian group in the correctly analyze
the horrendous situation in the US but then conclude that "we do
not need to do anything about it because they will go to hell and we will
go to heaven."
- The Mohists, want justice in this life, not the next
and thus are not opposed to violence as a last resort. Mozi had a well
armed, highly trained army at his disposal. The army would only fight
defensive battles on behalf of small kingdoms that were being attacked
by larger kingdoms. Usually, the mere presence of his army was enough
to prevent war. If attacked, their resistance was fanatical. Their view
was that "if we are going to die anyway, we will take as many of
them with us as possible."
- Mozi developed many new types of armament and fortification.
He was not just a philosopher but also a general, an engineer and an
inventor among many other things.
- According to Western scholars Mohism vanished without
a trace in the 2nd century BC.
- It is true the Qin emperor, who ended the warring states
era by unifying China brutally suppressed the Mohists and burned their
- However, they did not vanish, the merely went underground
and became secret societies. After Mozi died his disciples split into
three factions. Today, their spiritual descendants are known as the triads.
- The triads are not the same a crime gangs. Most of their
members are engaged in legitimate business. However, whenever they perceive
that government has become evil and is excessively exploiting the common
people, they make secret preparations for revolt. As the Chinese proverb
has it: "all it takes is a single spark to start a prairie fire."
Time and time again in the history of China they have started peasant
revolts. Most recently we saw the Taiping rebellion of the 1800's and
the Boxer rebellion of 1900. Their big success was in overthrowing the
last Emperor in 1911 and installing Sun Yat Sen. They also threw the
Soviets out of China in 1967 and freed China from the last vestiges of
- In Japan as well we can find Mohist societies known as
the Yakuza. It is believed by current secret society members that the
first Yakuza settled in Japan in the 2nd century BC as refugees from
the first emperor of China. Certainly Yakuza philosophy is Mohist in content.
Modern day Yakuza (unfortunately many lower level members have lost this
spirit) fight against injustice of behalf of the weak. They also practice,
like Mozi taught, meritocracy with strict rules against nepotism.
- Japanese gang lords do not pass their leadership onto
their children. Also, again as Mozi taught, their leaders are frugal.
The current head of the 50,000 man Yamaguchi Gumi, for example, lived
in a small apartment above a noodle shop and had to be forced to move
into a large house his gang had prepared for him.
- The head of the Asian secret society also lives in a
modest middle-class house and eats in low-cost diners. Their view is
they should not live decadently if their lowest subordinates are struggling
to get by.
- The important thing for the illuminati to realize is
that their insane plans have woken up the sleeping Mohist dragon and it
will not go back to sleep until the poorest person on earth is well fed
and the smallest creature is safe in its burrow. Because they think of
violence as a last resort, the traditional rulers of China had a very
good reason to be terrified of them. Just the thought of them waking up
was enough to force most rulers of China to do their best for the weakest
among their people. Despite all the propaganda being directed against
the Chinese government these days, an objective look at the facts shows
they have taken the words of Mozi to heart.
- Benjamin Fulford
- Mr. Fulford incorrectly attributes a wise saying of Mao
(who borrowed it from a Chinese proverb, perhaps Mozi?) to Jesus Christ,
"Give a man a fish, he eats for a day; teach a man to fish, he eats
for a lifetime." Christ never said this. Rather, he fed the masses
miraculously with the few loaves and fishes. It's odd how many sayings
get attributed to Jesus, or are claimed to be "in the Bible,"
when they come from far elsewhere. Probably the most common are pulled
from Ben Franklin or Shakespeare!
- Wasn't it Moses that said, "A penny saved is a penny
earned?" Nahhh. No pennies!
