Trade, capitalism, secular power-all owe a greater debt to Catholicism than we like to think.

Why did the West rise above the rest? Over the last two decades, academics and pundits have tried to answer this question. Most begin their search for the birth of the modern world somewhere over the last few centuries: the discovery of the Americas, the invention of the steam engine, perhaps the outbreak of the [Ron: Rothschilds' organised Jewish COUP (see eg: A Fresh Look at the French Revolution- The Liberals vs the People - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/A-Fresh-Look-at-the-French-Revolution--The-Liberals-vs-the-People.shtml ) mislabelled as the] French Revolution.

Yet the research of two pathbreaking economists suggests that these answers are misplaced. In separate works, they argue that the invention of capitalism and liberalism in Western Europe should be traced to one surprising source: the medieval Catholic Church.

The research program of Jonathan Schultz, an economist currently attached to the Culture, Cognition, and Coevolution research group at Harvard, [Ron: For some background on Harvard see eg: The Shocking, Massive Jewish Racist Discrimination at Harvard (Repost) - http://abundanthope.net/pages/True_US_History_108/ssive-Jewish-Racist-Discrimination-at-Harvard-Repost_printer.shtml And: Unz Goes Nuclear - http://abundanthope.net/pages/True_US_History_108/Unz-Goes-Nuclear.shtml].

is built on a simple observation: Western Europeans-and their cultural descendants in places like North America and Australia-think differently from people raised in other cultures. This is not a unique observation. Over the last two decades, psychologists have asked questions like "Do you think most people can be trusted?" and "Is it important to think up ideas and be creative, to do things one's own way?" They've complimented these questionnaires with games cleverly designed to test how willing subjects are to trust strangers, punish rule breakers, break rules themselves, and treat friends and family impartially.

Schultz and his team drew on 20 of these cross-cultural experiments (including several "natural" experiments, such as the likelihood that a diplomat at the U.N. from a given country would call on diplomatic immunity to get out of a parking ticket) to sketch a psychological profile of the Western mind. They found that on average, Westerners are more individualistic, more trusting of strangers and public institutions, more likely to donate anonymously, less concerned with the opinions and judgments of their peers, less likely to cheat or bend rules (especially for the sake of friends and relatives), and far less tolerant of nepotism than those from other parts of the world.

This will come as little surprise to anyone who has lived both in and outside the West. It also won't shock psychologists, who have even invented an acronym to label this unique psychological type: "W.E.I.R.D."-Western, Educated, Industrial, Rich, and Developed. But in contrast to past research, which tended to emphasize the gap between Europe and the rest of the globe, Schultz and his team have focused their attention on differences within Europe itself. They have found that WEIRDness is not uniform across Europe. Some European populations are far WEIRDer than others. What explains this variation in WEIRD psychology?

Schultz provides a simple answer: the date at which a region first fell under the influence of the Catholic Church. To predict how civic-minded, individualist, and trusting a population is today, you need only check whether a Catholic bishopric had been established there by the 7th century AD.

[Ron: I disagree. Arguably the Talmudist's focus on destroying the white race because they know of its Shemite origins. Talmudism has Canaanite origins. See eg: JUDAISM'S CANAANITE IDEOLOGICAL HERITAGE. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/JUDAISM-S-CANAANITE-IDEOLOGICAL-HERITAGE.shtml

Around 700 BC the Israelites, notably the so-called 10 Lost Tribes, having been taken into captivity by the Assayrians, regained their freedom after a few years and are said to have then migrated north-west from Media through the Caucasus Mountains into Central and Western Europe where they emerged as the Saxons and spread to England.

The Hyksos are also said to have been of Hebrew origins and they are said to have started to migrate from Egypt by sea through the Mediterranean to Ireland and Western Europe from around the time Moses is said to have led the Israelites out of Egypt. Hence we get the stories about Joseph of Aramathea owning tin mines in Cornwall. The joke for Khazars and other Jews in the know is that Jews are NOT of Israelitish origins but Western Europeans ARE, or are at least are descended therefrom. See eg: The Story Of Celto-Saxon Israel. - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/The-Story-Of-Celto-Saxon-Israel.shtml See also: Irish Origins of Modern Civilisations (Repost) - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Irish-Origins-of-Modern-Civilisations-Repost.shtml

Arguably the DNA of these peoples have contributed to their perceived differences from other peoples. Socialisation and environment are not the only factors involved.].

Family structure is the link that connects Catholicism to social trust. Most of us are not inclined to think deeply about this. If you are an American, the fact that your kids will leave their childhood home when they grow up to establish their own households is utterly banal. The expectation that your son will only be married to one wife at a time, or that your daughter will not consider marrying her cousin, is so obvious that it is rarely articulated. Yet these commonsense assumptions are not human universals. Most traditional cultures expected their sons and daughters to continue living on their parents' estate after marriage.

In imperial China, for example, it was common practice for all of a family's sons, as well as its wives, children, and concubines, to live together with their father and mother in one giant community until both parents had passed away (daughters were sent to live with the in-laws). Likewise, cultures that accept polygamous marriage are far more common than those that prohibit it. From the Western point of view, even odder is a marriage practice common to many cultures-like most in the modern Middle East-where parents eagerly arrange marriages between their nephews and daughters.

Marriage practices like these are not just cultural trivia. Schultz's research advances the claim that these differences have decided the fate of entire civilizations. Those who marry within their families, marry more than one wife, and live together in large communities of extended kin learn from an early age that they are embedded in powerful networks of extended relations. Varied terms are used to describe these networks: among the Romans, they were known as gen; among the Scottish, clans; among the Norse, lines; in Arabia, tribes; in China, lineages; in Sicily, cosca. These kin-groups are the central organizing unit of their societies. A clansman in need turns first to kinsmen for succor and relief. A clansman wronged turns first to kinsmen for revenge. To live in a clan is to equate the family honor with personal interest. These societies put the family before the man and the community behind the clan. Healthy civic life is hard to sustain in such a restricted social world. There simply is no sense of shared civic identity that can supersede the claims of private family interests. In this respect, ancient Rome and modern Warizstan have more in common than either does with the modern West.

For this, Westerners have the Catholic Church to thank. In the early days of Europe's darkest age, [Ron: ?!?] the Church waged a tireless war against the clans of Western Europe. The first step was broadening the doctrinal definition of incest to include marriage to almost all kin relations. Starting with the Synod of Agde in 517 AD, more than 15 synods on the subject were held in France, Spain, and Northern Italy over two centuries.

In kingdoms where the Church was strong, kings were eager to incorporate the new Catholic understanding of marriage and incest into their laws. By the end of the seventh century, legislation against incestuous marriages was written into the Merovingian, Visigothic, and Lombard legal codes. No one, however, was as active a promoter of the new understanding as Charlemagne. He decreed that all prospective spouses must undergo interviews by local bishops or priests before they were allowed to marry. These churchmen would investigate the family relations of both parties; if they were found to violate Church statutes, Charlemagne's decrees empowered authorities to end the marriage. The power of the clans was being destroyed one marriage at a time. What followed was one of the greatest social transformations in European history: Western Europeans stopped thinking of themselves as kinsmen and started thinking of themselves as neighbors.

[Ron: Presumably this was a precurser to Western Europeans starting to think of themselves as individuals. That transformation in consciousness apparently occurred with the dissolution of feudalism and the commencement of the Industrial Revolution that followed the Agricultural Revolution which began the often forced exodus of serfs from the land and into cities. The transformation was formalised by the Jew banksters endorsement of free range serfdom during the Jew bankster created American Civil War. See eg: The Matrix, the Srawman and WHO you are - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Ron_71/The_Matrix_the_Strawman_and_WHO_You_Are_3030.shtml].

Why were leaders like Charlemagne so eager to encode Catholic social teaching into law? This question is the starting point of the research of economist Jared Rubin, whose work [Ron: allegedly] traces the origin of modern economic growth to the history of medieval and early modern Europe. In his recent book Rulers, Religion, and Riches: Why the West Got Rich and the Middle East Did Not, Rubin argues that the Catholic Church's unique position in medieval European society determined the unique trajectory of Europe's modern economy.

[Ron: I disagree. Arguably the neo-Pharisees in Venice who were called the Black Nobility, and who started calling themselves Jews around 1775, have always controlled the European economy and are responsible for the evolvement of Europe's Central banking system, Europe's acceptance of usury and the implementation of fractional reserve banking practices in Europe and globally. The Jews also coined the terms Capitalism, Fabianism, Communism, Liberalism, Fascism, Nazism and so on.].

In the days of Charlemagne, European kingdoms had the least developed economies of Eurasia. Governments were weak and agents of the crown were few. To maintain power, political leaders needed the support of the Catholic clergy. Laws like those banning plural and cousin marriages were the price of their support.

[Ron: Esu Immanuel (aka Jesus the Christ) didn't incarnate to establish a religion and didn't; rather he came to teach divine truths lost over millenia and corrupted by Pharisees and others. In fact the Pharisees not only crucified Jesus, they also sought to eradicate his teachings. Accordingly, the Pharisees successfully sought to get Roman Emperors to establish the Christian religion under their guidance so that they could distort and corrupt those teachings. This they did. As part of their efforts to destroy genuine Christian teaching the Pharisees appear to have sought to have the Catholic Church seek to break up kinship and clans. WHY? Because   the Pharisees, being extremely clannish and ethno-centric themselves probably assumed that destroying the bonds of kinship and clans would atomise Christian gentile communities and alienate members from each other, thus breaking down community bonds and making christian communities easier to infiltrate and divide and conquer. The Khazarian neo-Pharisees exhibited the same seperatist, ghetto mentality as the Pharisees, because their rabbis herded them together in isolated shtetel communities in Eastern Europe for many centuries.

However, Jesus' message was that every human is gifted by the Creator with a unique personality and free will. Every human being is an individual responsible for his/her own decisions, evolvement and destiny. That necessarily implies a denial of group thinking and ethno-centricity. Also, in-breeding can cause physical and mental dysfunctionalities. Accordingly, The Catholic Church's policy against consanguinity appears to have been consistent with Jesus' teaching and to have had a divine and rational basis.

Assuming that Talmudists did seek to influence  and corrupt this Catholic Church's policy in order to atomise and alienate Western European populations, their agenda worked in that it apparently did eliminate kinship groups and clannishness; but paradoxically, as with many demonic enterprises, it had unintended consequences for the Talmudists because in the long term it stimulated socio-political and interlectual development as well as improved physical health and genetic diversity which caused some Western Europeans to become more independant, individualistic, and socio-politically and intellectually aware, and hence less amenable to Talmudic indoctrination, domination and demonic control.

The demonic directors of Talmudic attitudes towards the Catholic Church may also have had in mind that discouraging mating between blood relatives might  increase the possibility that ensouled humans might mate with unensouled people which would result in unensouled progeny. Also, the policy might have increased the possibility of experienced souls couplying with new souls which might dilute spirituality in offspring making them more susceptable to Talmudic ideas including Capitalism and Liberalism.

In any event a mix of Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft individuals no doubt developed in Western European societies and so not all of the population could be said to have evolved to satisfy the psycho-spiritual requirements for being the so-called 'Western, Educated, Industrial, Rich, and Developed' populations referred to by this author. Indeed the popularity of so called Liberal LGBTism and Political Correctness in Europe and the US today evidences that huge swathes of those populations have succumbed to Talmudic ideas.

Arguably then, what Jonathan Schultz was really if unwittingly referring too was the aggressive, empire building and global commercial leadership of the Western European nations, primarily Portugal, Spain, Britain, Holland, France and Germany, with also rans being Belgium and Italy; and the aggressive Gesellschaft individuals who manned the Dutch and British East India Companies and the British companies and colonists that invaded North America in the 17th Century; and Australia and New Zealand et al in the 18th Century.

Leadership groups are not necessarily typical of the rest of a nation especially if they are infiltrated and covertly controlled by Jews as has occurred in the UK, Western Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere. This situation has existed for centuries. The Black Nobility infiltrated and dominated what this author calls "trade" in Italy and the Mediteranean in the 11th to 16th Centuries and then did the same thing in Holland in the 16th Century and in Britain from the 17th Century onwards. The Rothschilds and French Jews orchestrated the so-called French Revolution in 1789 and the Rothschilds took near absolute control of the British economy from 1815 onwards. Without writing a book about it, suffice to say that Jews covertly dominated virtually all of the Imperial conquests and plunder of india, Africa, China, Indonesia and the New World by Holland, Britain, France, and Germany.

In other words, global Jewry rather than the Catholic Church, was responsible for the rise of Capitalism and Liberalism in the 19th century. To the extent that the Vatican was involved in the process it appears to have covertly acted in accordance with Talmudic ideology as it continues to do today.].

The kings of Western Europe were not unique in their use of religious authority. The rulers of Byzantium and the Middle East also relied on religious leaders as sources of political legitimacy. What separates the Catholic experience from its Orthodox and Islamic counterparts was the increasingly weak influence Catholic leaders had on secular leaders as the Middle Ages came to a close.

[Ron: I disagree. What clearly distinguished the Byzantine Empire and its Orthodox religion from Western Christendom was the Byzantine Empire's policy toward the Pharisees (known today as Jews) codified by Emperor Justinian in the 6th Century AD, popularly known as, “The Code of Justinian.”

The code FORBADE Jews from holding civil office and teaching positions. Even part of the Orthodox Church’s “canon law” prohibited its members from seeking out “remedies” from Jewish physicians.

The Code compiled various laws regarding the Jews that were established before Emperor Justinian into a legal codification.

Justinian forbade Jews:

* To engage in proselytism;

* To marry Orthodox Christian women;

* To possess Orthodox Christian servants;

* To hold office or honors in the Roman state;

* To build new synagogues;

* To read the Old Testament in Hebrew but rather in Greek which did not cut out the prophecies that pointed to Jesus Christ;

* To use Judaic interpretations of the Old Testament;

* To bear witness in court against an Orthodox Christian;

* To hold teaching positions in Roman schools or as private tutors.

The culmination of Justinian’s “Codex” was the denial of Roman citizenship to the Jews and relegating them to the rank of second class citizens.

Given the collectivist, ethno-centric, anti-gentile, genocidal attitude of Talmudists (however described), Justinian's code was highly appropriate and preserved the Byzantine Empire from Judaic subversion and collapse for a thousand years. Arguably every gentile nation should similarly prevent Talmudists from acting as a FIFTH COLUMN in their midst. BUT Western Christendom did not do that and the results are obvious. Current efforts to thwart democratically elected President Trump's Administration and its legislation; and to remove him from Office in the US, typify the problems caused by granting citizenship to Judaic Fifth Columnists.].

The waning authority of the Church had powerful economic effects. In Byzantium, the Arab kingdoms, and the Ottoman Empire, religious leaders retained more than enough political power to frustrate financial and technological innovations that threatened to violate religious doctrines or subvert their cultural authority.

[Ron: I disagree. Muslim states were renowned for science and technology for centuries before they succumbed to the DNA and socio-political and ideological weaknesses inherent in kinship castes and clannishness on the one hand, and military and commercial invasions by Jew controlled Western European states on the other.].

The hierarchy of the Catholic Church, in contrast, had little choice but to adapt themselves to unwelcome changes. Rubin's case studies include the invention of modern banking and the printing press. In both cases, religious leaders across Europe and the Middle East opposed the spread of these new technologies. Only in Western Europe were the protests of the churchmen ignored. The foundations of modern trade were laid on the unique relationship between the Catholic Church and Catholic states.

[Ron: I disagree. Arguably this is only true in the sense that the neo-Pharisees in the guise of the Black Nobility of Venice acquired financial control of many local European rulers as well as control of the Vatican in the 12th Century. The Black Nobility also caused the Great banking and financial collapse in Italy and Western Europe in the 14th Century. See eg: How Venice Rigged The First, and Worst, Global Financial Collapse - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/How-Venice-Rigged-The-First-and-Worst-Global-Financial-Collapse.shtml

The Jews who controlled Venice controlled trade and banking in Western Europe and the Mediteranean and beyond and they developed the foundations of modern trade looong before they migrated to Holland and then London in the 16th and 17th Centuries. Fernand Braudel wrote:

“Venice had deliberately ensnared all the surrounding subject economies, including the German economy, for her own profit; she drew her living from them, preventing them from acting freely. ... The Fourteenth-century saw the creation of such a powerful monopoly to the advantage of the city-states of Italy ... that the embryo territorial states like England, France and Spain necessarily suffered the consequences.”

And Paul Gallagher says:

This triumph of “free trade” over the potential for national government, rigged the Fourteenth century’s global human catastrophes, the worst onslaught of death and depopulation in history. It was not until the Renaissance created the French nation-state under Louis XI, one hundred years later, and then England under Henry VII, and Spain under Ferdinand and Isabel, that the human population would begin to recover.

[Ron: The Canaanites (Phonecians & Pharisees) and Khazars (neo-Pharisees) segued from defeat by the Romans in the Second Century AD and the Rus in the 9th Century AD, into unchallenged maritime, financial and economic dominance of the Mediteranean and European world and many lands beyond. Their Black Nobility Venetian Empire was based on usurious monetary policy and debt slavery. It was centred in Venice in the 11th Century and transferred to Holland in the 16th Century finally settling in London in 1763. The Triodity of Presidents Trump, Putin and Xi are currently eradicating these ex-Venetian stinking swamp dwellers with considerable difficulty. See also: Joseph P. Farrell: Financial Vipers of Venice [Part1]. This 2 hr, 27' 32" video was published by Webster Tapley on Mar 25, 2017: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3qad5f5-Uw

Although it is true that DNA is crucial to health and intelligence it doesn't follow that being born into a particular society, race or culture determines WHO YOU ARE. Being a neo-Pharisee, ie a Jew, is a CHOICE. It is not genetic, nor is Judaism a religion. Although Jews indoctrinate their children in their ethno-centric political ideology from birth, it is possible to reject Judaic mind control and social engineering and some do.].

Rubin traces the origins of Catholic political weakness back to the Church's first centuries. Unlike Islam, born in conquest and endowed from its origins with political power, Christianity began as the religion of a persecuted minority. The notion that different things might be rendered unto God and unto Caesar made no sense to the jurists of the early Caliphates. This ancient Christian distinction between secular and sectarian was buttressed by the curious institutional history of the Latin West. In contrast to the Arab and Turkic kingdoms, which had no formal religious hierarchy capable of spanning the many Sunni lands, or Byzantium, whose strong Orthodox hierarchy was married to an equally vigorous state bureaucracy, the Catholic Church had a stronger institutional foundation than any kingdom in medieval Europe. This state of affairs led European kingdoms to cling to the Church for support. But if the divisions of feudal Europe brought the princes to the Church's altars, Rubin shows how these same divisions would eventually lead them into open conflict with the Church itself.

[Ron: This analysis completely ignores the highly divisive role played by Jews, ie Pharisees, the Black Nobility and neo-Pharisees, in fomenting conflict, warfare and economic and societal catastrophies in Western Christendom. THIS sort of  pseudo historical scholarship typically constitutes the FALSE HISTORY that supports the MSM's FALSE NEWS in the Jews' dumbing down of the Western World which is being forced upon the Euroanglo-US world today.].

"For Christians it is not possible to have a Church and not have an emperor," wrote the patriarch of Constantinople in 1393, "for the empire and the church have a great unity and a commonalty, and it is impossible to separate them." This crude equation of an individual kingdom with all of Christendom was not possible in the Latin West. The Western kingdoms were too fractious for this, the papacy's claims too catholic. Byzantine emperors and Eastern patriarchs were not without conflict, but they shared a sense of common self-interest. An emperor might worry that the Orthodox hierarchy might favor a popular general or royal relative over him; he did not worry that they would favor an enemy kingdom over his own. Catholic kings had no such assurance. The result was that, as their power increased over the centuries, the kings of the Latin West grew less and less comfortable with their dependence on the papacy.

What followed from this is well known: the Investiture Crisis, the Avignon Papacy, Charles VIII's march on Rome, and eventually the Protestant Reformation. For Rubin, these events have more than just religious significance. By refusing the blessing of the churchmen, the kings of Europe had to turn elsewhere for support. They turned to a new European social group: the merchants. This nascent [Ron: ?!?] business class was happy to legitimize Western monarchs; in return, Western monarchs were happy to promote laws and institutions that favored cross-border trade and finance. The late medieval eclipse of the Church by the [Ron: Jews euphemistically referred to by this author as the] market, Rubin concludes, set the scene for Western Europe's capitalist revolution. Only the political threat posed by a cross-national religious hierarchy could have prompted medieval leaders into the arms of the merchant class. Thus it was only in Western Europe that the development of modern markets began.

[Ron: I disagree. This analysis is Talmudic propaganda. It assumes that the cross-national Catholic religious hierarchy forced medieval leaders into the arms of the Jew banksters who are euphemistically called the 'merchant class.'. This ignores the activities of the so-called 'merchant class' in the previous 2000 years. See eg: How Venice Rigged The First, and Worst, Global Financial Collapse - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/How-Venice-Rigged-The-First-and-Worst-Global-Financial-Collapse.shtml

Arguably the "merchant class" who developed banking and Capitalism in the West were, in ideological terms, originally the Pharisee "money changers" who, having infiltrated and destroyed the Western Roman Empire then morphed into the Black Nobility resident in Venice which dominated the gold, silver, banking and slave trade in most of Western Europe while their fleets controlled the Mediteranean and Black Seas and hence the European trade with the Mongols over the Great Silk Road from China, until the Ottoman Empire closed that trade for them. The Black Nobility then relocated to Holland in the 16th century to take advantage of the opportunities opening up in the New World.  Subsequently they relocated to London after financing Cromwell and then William III of Orange who became King of England in the late 17th century. In 1694 William III granted 'the merchants' a licence to establish the Bank of England and to create and lend money on a fractional reserve basis at interest (usury). The catalysts for all of these occurrances were neo-Pharisaic banksters NOT the Catholic Church.].

Though the methods used by Rubin and Schultz differ (in his papers, Rubin employs game theory and calculus to model the calculations of popes and princes; Schultz and his co-authors rely on statistical methods to correlate modern outcomes with Europe's medieval heritage) when placed together, their work presents a compelling account of the origins of modernity. Capitalism and liberalism are the twin pillars upon which the modern world was built. And both of them were built, unconsciously, by the priests and popes of the medieval Catholic Church.

[Ron: I disagree. This statement is anti-Catholic Talmudic propaganda. Arguably, Capitalism and 'Liberalism' were and are Talmudic ideologies developed by neo-Pharisees, presumably with demonic guidance. The medieval Catholic Church rejected usury for many, many centuries but eventually succumbed to the machinations of Talmudic banksters in the 16th Century. For instance Paul B. Gallagher says:

'The charter of the Parte Guelfa openly claimed that it was the party of the Papacy, and with Venice, the Black Guelph openly pushed for the Popes to change usury from a mortal sin to a venial (minor) sin. Lane remarks that the Venetians seemed to enjoy an effective exemption from the Popes' injunctions against usury, and also from their ban on trading with the infidel—the Seljuk and Mamluk regimes of Egypt and Syria.'

Clearly the Vatican was under the influence of the Black Nobility from the 12th Century and the Catholic Church tacitly condoned the Talmudic banking, fraud and usury practiced by the neo-Pharisaic Venetian Black Nobility.

Capitalism and Liberalism were NOT built unconsciously by priests and popes, they were built deliberately by neo-Pharisees who used them to undermine Christian values and subvert Christian societies and nations. The Black Nobility perfected banksterism long before launching Mercantilism and Capitalism via the British Empire in the 18th Century.

The Bank of England and the Dutch and British East India companies were not Catholic Church enterprises. Similarly, the African slave trade with the Americas was dominated by neo-Pharisees who began calling themselves Jews around 1775 AD. Moreover, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were not Christians let alone priests or popes.].
