Although you can see it if you read between the lines of his writings it would be great to be able to translate some of these books about him because we could likely provide evidence for his totalitarian, fundamentalist and fanatic origins in politics. His admiration for Adolf Hitler and his previous involvement in South American fascist politics.
From what I have read of his I have seen a few examples of his Fascist thinking, even his last writing which are the most cleaned up.
The very titles of the books Revolutionary psychology, psychological Rebellion and Revolution of the Dialectic are reactionary to the pro socialist environment he was writing in. As well as making a point against the science of psychology in an attempt to say that his work was the true psychology. Another example of how he read others work, took only the parts he liked and then made arguments for others not to look at that work.
The other one is the supposed test of honesty that you are supposed to experience while on the spiritual path. It is said that you will come across a circumstance where you will find money on the ground and the test will be that you leave the money on the ground, because it is not yours. This is really silly to me. It is a cultural biased experience. This test is supposedly a test of honesty. To me he seems to be more a support of private property then being about honestly. another example of how he is reacting to the Marxist idea of the workers taking things away from the wealthy.
then there is the stupid idea in Revolutionary Psychology that ants were once humans who because too involved in socialism (which to him implies a dictatorship) and their culture led to genetic engineering which led them to be this way. To me this story is an example of his mental disorder mixing with a dislike of science and left wing politics.
But unfortunately all we have to work with when we talk about Victor Gomez Sr. (Samael Aun Weor) is peoples stories and his primary sources.
If anyone has any ideas about translating or finding an academic interested in this problem would be appreciated.
Yes he was involved in extremist politics. He did also did form POSCLA -Latin American Christian Socialist Party.
He had to disolve it when it became a hinderance. Obviously when religious groups start forming political parties and getting into politics governments starts to take notice. Religion and Politics never seem to mix well together.
I find his "Revolutionary Psychology" to be nothing revolutionary at all. It reminds me alot of Scientology and a few other groups that messes with people's minds. Its really nothing new.
In my opinion his writing style are written as nothing but propanganda pieces. Its written in a polemic to either denounce other religion (or religious teachers) or aimed at any readers who might disagree with him. Alot of rhetoric etc. Of course people who hear propaganda rhetoric for long periods of time start believing in them
(The Korean War & North Korea is a good example)
I think that ant business was crazy as well.
Even his "108 lives" he got wrong.
You know there are numerous associations to 108 not just related to Buddhism. This is only some.
Its used in far eastern Astrology in reference to 108 stars (among other things).
In vedic astrology there are 12 houses and 9 planets. 12 times 9 comes out to= 108
There are also 108 main energy points on the body.
He has nothing to do with the nonsence that he teaches.
