Injustice: Fawkes was Framed!

The search for truth is not aimed at finding agreement with tyranny. Congress is found through debate, the conflict of ideas. The search is aimed at discarding that which is not true about law. Law is for liberty. Thus, liberty in the law is the object that is to be sought.
Rejoice in the right to be different in accordance with respect for grace and truth.
Fr. John Johnson
Waz'up Guido?
Guy Fawkes

(The Gunpowder Plot)
The Fifth of November
"Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive..."

Guy Fawkes (1570-1601) used the name John Johnson.
"One of the conspirators, Thomas Percy, was promoted in June 1604, gaining access to a house in London that belonged to John Whynniard, Keeper of the King's Wardrobe. Fawkes was installed as a caretaker and began using the pseudonym John Johnson, servant to Percy."

Emmegahbowh used the name Fr. John Johnson (19th century CE, Minnesota, USA)
"The Rev. John Johnson was born in Canada and died at White Earth on the 12th of June, 1902, at the age of 95 years."

Fr. John Johnson aka Emmegahbowh (Stands for People)
Hymns were his gunpowder. "John Johnson Enmegahbowh, an Odawa (Ottawa) Indian from Canada, was raised in the Midewiwin traditional healing way of his grandfather and the Christian religion of his mother. He came into the United States as a missionary in 1832..."

"Enmegahbowh (“The One who Stands Before his People”) is the first recognized Native American priest in the Episcopal Church. He was ordained deacon by Bishop Kemper in 1859 and priest by Bishop Whipple in the cathedral at Faribault in 1867. Enmegahbowh helped train many others to serve as deacons throughout northern Minnesota. The powerful tradition of Ojibway hymn singing is a living testimony to their ministry. His understanding of Native tradition enabled him to enculturate Christianity in the language and traditions of the Ojibway.”
Evelyn Underhill (20th century CE, Anglo-Catholic, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, UK)
Evelyn Underhill wrote about mysticism.
She countered William James on the definition for the aspect of ineffability. She asserted that the value of mysticism is practical, not theoretical.
Underhill has agreement with Kant regarding the value of faith and morality. Morality is the practical value for faith. Ineffability makes the arguments drawn from mysticism esoteric and impractical.
It has been observed that tyrants and dictators use mysticism to justify tyrannical acts. The tyranny is promoted on the basis that ‘God said so’ with the cruelty of nature. Evelyn was a pacifist. This excluded her from support for the cruelty of war, but it doesn't rule out cruelty in the name of the law.
Consider the historical example of Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot. Assume that the information about the plot was obtained by torture. It is inadmissible in court. Torture someone long enough and death will seem preferable. A signature to a confession is given to stop the pain. It is a confession obtained by coercion. This is not regarded as valid testimony.
The confession obtained from Guy Fawkes was propaganda to gain sympathy for the absolute power of the king and parliament. The event serves as an example of establishment for the divine right of kings to put anyone to death who did not participate in the state religion.

It becomes imperative to consider this: Guy Fawkes was framed. The ‘gunpowder conspirators’ were framed. Why would a room under parliament be rented out? Like that wasn't regarded as a threat even then! So what was the justification for the employing the "divine right?" The cruelty of nature was the argument for the divine right to rule by killing or having others put to death. This was what was left implied when absolute power was cited.
This claim to absolute power was based on false mystical interpretation. The bounty of providence far outweighs the destruction caused by natural events. If anything, the destructiveness of natural events is a justification for working together to re-build damaged or destroyed constructs.
Nevertheless, even the sweetest of little old ladies can shock the pants off a skeptic with the certainty that is expressed regarding who should be put to death based on evidence that doesn't qualify as proof. Too many people, if any, would use the state as a convenient weapon for murder if someone were to be put to death for murder when the person was not guilty of the charge.

There is agreement that the practical value for faith is ethical morality. Even the rule of law however, has to be exercised with due process that relies on scientific standards for investigation; not convenient demographics based on majority or minority popularity in populations. Popularity in perception can be manipulated by propaganda, torture, coercion, false testimony, false arguments or other immoral practices.
From Psalm 32
Happy are they who ask for forgiveness
for that which can be forgiven.
The transgression is put away.
Happy are they who are not guilty of crime;
who believe in correction for infraction
not the destruction of the criminal.
There is no remorse for their spirit.
Happy is the nation that does not support
torture, indefinite detention, targeted killing,
wars for aggression, genocide, elitism, racism, sexism,
discrimination or excessive force.
They don’t support tyranny.
My bones groaned while I held my tongue.
My spirit languished within me.
Then I acknowledged my error.
I did not conceal my guilt.
I said, “I will confess
my transgression to God as LORD.”
The guilt for my sin was forgiven.
The faithful will make their prayers to you.
When troubles overflow, they will be protected.
You are my hiding place.
You preserve me from trouble.
You surround me with deliverance.
A person is not justified by using the law for destruction.
The law is for the correction of crime.
Society as well as the suspect convicted
for a criminal charge
stands in need of redirection.
If I learn to correct prodigality
from my experience as a prodigal
I have learned from my experience.
If I convict those who are not guilty of crime
then I tear down that which I had believed I support.
Through the law, I died to the abuse of the law
so I might use the rule of law
with scientific standards for justice.
When the law itself is transgressing,
I will protest it for correction in executive,
legislative or judicial functions.
Do not be like the horse or the mule
that follow orders from the bit and bridle.
You must use faith with reason.
When the law is misdirected,
re-direct it back to respect
for rights.
Be glad you righteous.
Rejoice in freedom.
Rejoice in the liberty
that has respect for rights.
Rejoice in the LORD always
in all ways. Shout for joy
all who are true of heart!
Iraq and US Foreign Policy (Noam Chomsky, 21st century, Massachusetts, USA)
“Vice-President Dick Cheney, the most influential foreign policy figure in the Bush Administration, observed that control over pipelines can serve as a "tool of intimidation." He was referring of course to control by others, but understands perfectly well that the same is true of US control.
“These matters, though obvious, are largely excluded from Western discourse. Doctrinal managers would like us to believe that the US and UK would have "liberated" Iraq even if its major exports were lettuce and pickles and the major energy resources of the world were in the South Pacific. It takes really impressive discipline "not to see" the obvious.”
The doctrinal managers that would have us believe that Iraq was “liberated” are drawing from the bible as the source for political doctrine. The Persian (Achaemenid) model for imperial leadership was being used for “Christ” in opposition to Iranian and Saudi extremism in factional militarism (al Qa eda) and cruelty in punishment. This model allowed for the total destruction of the enemy as an expression of devotion to God (herem).
The total destruction of terrorists (groups/tribes) was promoted as the alternative to the destruction of a kingdom or tribe.  Muslims were categorized as suspected terrorists when statements like “Death to America” or “Israel doesn’t have the right to exist” were made. Suspects were not investigated by due process of law because US foreign policy in the Middle East refused to acknowledge democratic processes in Middle Eastern nations.
Due process of law was ruled out as an option because the media was only broadcasting stories about Muslim cruelty in punishment. The fact that these were isolated incidents was left implied to favor the general perception that cruelty is a characteristic of Islamic justice. The problem is that cruelty is a characteristic of establishment religion, not Islam as a religion.
The great hypocrisy is that the US and the western coalition used wars for aggression to impose control over invaded nations to influence control over the Middle East. The people in the western coalition nations are being charged for the invasions with taxes.
 Corporations don’t pay a proportionate share in taxes. The wealthiest individual leaders from the corporations don’t pay a proportionate amount of taxes. The individual leaders from the oil, banking, military and media industries who organized the false flag event that established a basis for invasion level events have not been charged with high crime.
The policy makers who would have us believe in the liberation of Iraq (and Afghanistan) are using a biblical definition of Christ that is not acceptable to Christian, Jewish, Muslim or any moral theology. The policy however is based on belief in a doctrine derived from the bible as THE Judeo-Christian argument for establishment of state religion. The aggregate experience of the different religions affirms that there is no theological support for the establishment of a state religion.
The false doctrine for “establishment” has been ‘paired’ with the false belief that military invasion is necessary for the manifest destiny of democracy to be realized as the only acceptable form of government in the world. The imposition of “free” government by military force is not only a logical inconsistency, it is a high crime. Any form of government that is imposed by military invasion is forced by aggression. It is not chosen by the people. It is not organized by the people. The government is not established by the labor of the people. 
The practical value for faith is ethical morality; scientific standards for investigation are vital for justice in the due process of law; happiness is a self-perpetuating incentive for just political policies; injustice requires protest for improvement; respect for rights is the goal of government and the law; the establishment of a state religion is not beneficial for the religion or the state; establishment has been used to fabricate stories for false conviction and false flag events; establishment as a goal does not justify wars for aggression, genocide, murder, violence or economic destruction.
The study of history tells us that these principles for government and justice should be established as operational procedures for fairness in society. When the extension of rights is not the basis for leadership, the government is not representing the governed. All too often, rights have been limited to an “elite” that is given so much advantage that the only recourse left for society is to reduce the advantage. The advantage needs to be reduced. We need to reduce the advantage.
The Guy Fawkes mask used in “V for Vendetta” was critical in the promotion of the argument against “establishment.”  The central character acted as an avenging angel, a spirit that had been resurrected from history to combat the same kind of leadership that had had him put to death. The revenge fantasy provides a purge. It is an “out with the bad air and in with the good” type of resuscitation for the audience. The fantasy was released during a time when tyranny for the western coalition was on the rise. It was art in film for real time. It is art that inspires filmmakers to make an impact for the ages.
The dance macabre, when V is being shot by a contingent of black suited shooters, set up the audience for the key idea. The anti-hero is shot, but not killed. He convulses from the impact of bullets, but does not die. He rises from proximity to death to eliminate his attackers with “knives and karate gimmicks.” He pronounces liberation for the captives.
Before he puts an end to Creedy as the bureaucratic agent of tyranny, V says, “Behind this mask is an idea, Mr. Creedy and ideas are bulletproof.”
Represent ideas for justice with protest and non-violent political action whenever necessary. The dance for death can be delayed to a natural end. This will save hundreds of thousands of lives. Offering human lives as sacrifice on the altar for establishment will not. Tens of thousands have been lost.
The search for truth is not aimed at finding agreement with tyranny. Law is for liberty. Liberty in the law is the object that is to be sought. Rejoice in your independence all you who respect rights for others!
