What does this phrase mean? Most people are inclined to assume that it means ‘Fortune Favors the Brave’. True, albeit, to some extent. The original Latin meaning reveals a deeper meaning of the renowned aphorism.
Fortis: means strong, courageous, or brave.
Audentis is the singular genitive form of audens, which also means someone daring, courageous and brave. The significance of the difference between fortis and audentis and why it is used in this phrase is because in terms of grammar, audentis is the neutral singular form whereas fortis is a neutral plural noun. Although the former refers to a daring one, Fortis refers to a plural group of brave ones.
Fortuna is a Goddess, representative of fortune or luck. It is also representative of that which controls fate or consequence.
The root word for adiuvat is iuvat. The ad- is actually a prefix, which means; towards a certain direction. Added with the meaning of iuvat, which means aid, thus the word adiuvat means “to come and aid”. (Which is where the Latin word ‘Adjuvare’ comes from, the root word for ‘Adjuvant’, in terms of the erroneous practice of vaccination)
So really, Altogether it says; “Fortuna will aid those who are courageous”
The difference seems minute, but it is nonetheless very important.
I want to accentuate the importance of Courage, and other mental faculties when it comes to Consequentialism. The Laws that govern Consequences in the physical reality always favour those who are complete in their mental faculties, meaning, they favour those who are strong and brave.
The Universe aids and rewards courage above everything else.
This brings us to why the Good side (the alleged “awakened”) is not being successful in its endeavours to manifest a peaceful, voluntary, free society on this planet for all beings. Which is what they say they want. But wishing and hoping for something does not make it come into fruition. Of course, it is but the first step, but every step is exceeded by another. Action needs to be taken in order to bring those desires into manifestation. If freedom is desired, and that desire is not being pursued by an act of will, perseverance, and courage, then you will never attain it. Like any dream any human wishes to bring about at some point in life, it all starts with the dream itself, but work and dedication is needed to accomplish it.
Unlike the erroneous promulgations of “New Age teachers” within many cultures, just wishing and dreaming about it consistently is not going to get you the thing you want. You need to act upon it. A physical effort has to be made, you have to engage the physical reality. Dreaming and hoping for a better world is futile if one does not take Action to achieve it. Which is why Social Engineers invented the “New Age” and Religious doctrines to ensconce you in the state of inaction, while Evil always remains in a state of action.
Do the people in the “freedom community” care about freedom at all? The majority of them are fearful of losing their own comfort, their jobs, their status, their relationships with others, and prefer the aforementioned appurtenances to freedom. Verily, such are not necessarily bad things, but you have to consider the fact that if slavery is actively taking place, that they are even real or are merely contrivances within the impeding conditions of slavery. Thus, I would ask the irresolute reader if such qualities of life are worth having as a mere slave? If you really cared about freedom, you wouldn’t be reluctant to sacrifice those for freedom. Is life even worth living if you’re not free, and are violently being demanded to adhere to another human’s decrees, whom is likely to be very cretinous. Is life worth living if you can’t make your own decisions and grow in consciousness as a result? Is life worth living at all if you’re a serf that has to live their life in someone else’s way, and merely being a part of someone else’s master plan.
Evil in this world, which are psychopathic individuals with malevolent endeavours, is different from us obviously. It does not desire freedom for all beings, it sought control over you and your life. Note that I am using the past tense of the word seek, because their search has already started to form into what is now becoming their manifested desires. Why is that? Why is Evil winning? Simple, they’re bold. They are not shy to speak, they are not ill-informed, they are not apathetic, and they are not unmotivated. They are bold, courageous and motivated in their efforts to bring about their desires, as sick and twisted as they are. Creation will favour those who are courageous and bold, who take action with sheer will and perseverance over those who are lazy, cowardly, Ill-witted, and apathetic, and let Evil do what it does without trying to stop it.
Why is Good failing? Because the Willpower, courage, perseverance, and knowledge of most people who fall under it’s category does not compete at all with that of Evil.
Evil knows the physical reality, it knows truth, it knows the Laws of nature, it knows you. Thusly they control it. most people in the so-called “freedom community” defy reality, defy morality, defy truth, and defy themselves. They defy reality when they erroneously believe that truth is dependent upon their own perceptions, they defy any objective standard of moral behaviour that one should abide by, because they believe that morality is relative and is dependent upon individual whims (exactly what is keeping those in power where they are). Most people defy themselves because they don’t act in accordance with what they know and feel to be right, but instead keep on complying with Evil instead, out of fear of responsibility or consequences.
Most people in the “freedom community” are subject to false ideologies like epistemological and moral relativism, solipsism, authoritarianism, etc. which are the very ideologies that are holding them where they are, enthralled.
Nobody is coming to save you from your own ignorance
Why are we in this situation? Because the vast majority does not behave according to moral standards, they abdicate their personal responsibilities to other people, they prefer safety, comfort and certainty to freedom, and don’t fight evil when confronted with it. Vast amounts of people believe that external saviours will come to save humanity from its own ignorance. What is the Universe supposed to do? Get rid of The ruling class? Is the ruling class taking away your freedom? No they are not, when is the last time you saw a politician in front of your door demanding that you give them extortion money? It is people who take their pay checks and do it for them, human beings themselves follow their orders and enslave their own kind for money.
How many millions have gazed upon the brutal horrors of history, with its countless examples of man’s inhumanity to man, and wondered aloud how such things could happen? The truth is, most people wouldn’t want to know how it happens, because they themselves are religiously attached to the very belief that makes it possible. The vast majority of suffering and injustice in the world, today and spanning back thousands of years, can be directly attributed to a single idea. It is not greed or hatred, or any of the other emotions or ideas that are usually blamed for the evils of society. Instead, most of the violence, theft, assault and murder in the world is the result of a mere superstition – a belief which, though almost universally held, runs contrary to all evidence and reason, a belief in “authority.”
The reason it is so important that people understand this fact is that the primary danger posed by the myth of “authority” is to be found not in the minds of the controllers in “government” but in the minds of those being controlled, One nasty individual who loves to dominate others is a trivial threat to humanity unless a lot of other people view such domination as legitimate because it is achieved via the “laws” of “government.” The twisted mind of Adolf Hitler, by itself, posed little or no threat to humanity. It was the millions of people who viewed Hitler as “authority,” and thus felt obligated to obey his commands and carry out his orders, who actually caused the damage done by the Third Reich. In other words, the problem is not that evil people believe in “authority”; the problem is that basically good people believe in “authority,” and as a result, end up advocating and even committing acts of aggression, injustice and oppression, even murder.
If the universe were to snip its fingers and the ruling class was gone, the world population would just set up the same government system of coercion and violence with new names and faces, and we would be exactly where we are today. Why would the Universe waste it’s time doing something like that over and over again, because the Universe knows better. How can people be free if they are not free in their own minds. When people still belief that authority in man is legitimate and that we should violently coerce our fellow man into compliance with the state. How can you end violence and coercion if most people are the ones supporting it? When we try to extinguish fire with more fire. And if you’re not a supporter of any government system, why aren’t you teaching people at a mass scale that their belief in authority is erroneous? (If you already are doing that through means like the internet and media, I’m not talking about you. I appreciate you and I have high amounts of respect and admiration for you.)
The truth is that Evil wants you to believe that someone is coming to save you and that you don’t have to any reason to stop them yourself. It is the perfect way to keep your opponent passive and prevent any resistance.
When you are brave and courageous enough to stand up against Evil, the Universe will come to aid you. Get yourself in front of a camera or on a stage, and speak up against Evil, no matter what the consequences are. Make the world aware of the Evil that we’re dealing with, with the Evil that they’re complying with, and the Evil that they firmly believe in, which is the belief in “Authority” over other people and the right to rule, through which Evil always exerts its power through the justification of it’s malice in the form of “law.” And when people know the real Law, the Universal Laws of Nature, when people know true Right and Wrong, freedom and wisdom will flourish.
Most people within the “freedom community” do not desire real freedom, based on voluntary interaction and peaceful coexistence. In their words they might say so to eloquently promote their own motives, which are solely the removal of ‘corruption’ within the control system over people all over the world. They view it as a matter of simply ‘putting the right people on the throne of authority’ whom they think will suffice as ‘political leaders’. When they are ignorant and or nescient of the fact that ‘political corruption’ is but a symptom of a larger cause, which is the throne itself. The firmly entrenched belief in ‘authority’ over other beings.
If you make the wilful choice of doing the Great Work at a large scale, the universe will aid you and will always stand next to you as you free the minds of the many. Courage is always rewarded.
