That Zoo Called The House of Lords
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
It is not actually libelous to describe the British aristocracy as a "pack of animals." For generations, the British aristocracy has held up dogbreeding as the model of reference for the aristocracy's own mating and whelp-culling practices. British behaviorist psychology, "Settlement House social-workology," and British "cultural relativist anthropology," are exemplary of the British, hysterical insistence that the mind and behavior of man must not be permitted to manifest a single element which does not have a point of reference in the practices of horse and dog breeding.
"Pack of animals" is not merely a permissible characterization of the British aristocracy. Without that image of reference, it is virtually impossible to comprehend the world-outlook, the policies and the way of life of the Anglican aristocracy, and that of its "black nobility" allies throughout the Mediterranean-centered region.
To pin the working point down more effectively for the reader's reference, nothing has horrified this writer more than his glimpses into the whelp-culling practices of the British aristocrats and their emulators. If one of then- own children fails to pass certain screening tests effected during and immediately following the onset of puberty, such reports delivered to the ostensible parent causes the parent to write off that item of his litter. Although this is not the sort of crime which persons in the colonial divisions of the British Commonwealth would pick out as their own leading perception of British criminality, my emphasis in the matter is eminently defensible. A parent with no better feeling for his or her own child than the sympathy (“humaneness'') exhibited toward a favorite bitch's culled whelps — (that image locates very efficiently the personal morality of the oligarch, shows us the root of the lack of conscience these oligarchs exhibit toward the rest of humanity.
A finer point is put on the same matter by focusing on the criteria which the oligarchs employ in choosing the preferred whelps of their own family litter. What are the dog-breeding points which recommend some of the whelps to favored treatment?
There is an obverse side. What is the psychological state of the unfortunate whelps so culled from the litter? Sieving through the pedigrees of such groups as the Weatherman terrorist group, or such cases as Abby and David, Jr. of the Rockefeller clan engaged in the Greater Boston division of the Institute for Policy Studies left-kook division, we see what happens, so tragically, among U.S. families which parody the British aristocracy's manners. The hard core of the Weatherman and like-minded groups was built out of culls from the litters of anglophile "upwardly mobile" or "blue blood" kennels. The Weatherman terrorist group is exemplary of the sort of human refuse-pile into which anglophile American kennels discard their culled-out whelps.
What is the characteristic of the sort of culled whelp who is discarded into the Weatherman or the Boston-area IPS collation? Their personalities, their world-outlooks are characterized by bestial cruelties, lack of mental integrity, roguish fixation on sensualized depravities. These unfortunate creatures, who have known only a dog-breeder's sort of "human" affection toward his litter from their parents, have no experience of actual love within their households, except an appetite to return to an infantile condition of "being mothered." They are bestialized oedipal cases, bitterly hateful of "father figures," with no sense of inner mental-creative, "lovable" identity. They are sadomasochistic little, if overgrown, Hobbesian "animals." They are discards of the litter, cast out into "radical" and other projects in which they will "please use themselves up," in some activities of chaos and confusion which are deemed serviceable to the general interests of the oligarchical class which has discarded them.
Consider the case of Queen Elizabeth herself.
Prior to the pure breeding with a cousin by Queen Victoria, the family name of the Enghish royal house was Welfpen, the Italian "Guelph"). With a common sort of consonant shift among Germanic languages, the plural of Welp, Welpen, becomes the English "whelps," reflecting the Saxon origins of the English word. This is an excellent pun in both German and English, since the Welfen and then-aristocratic allies have made, for so long, such a strong emphasis on emulating dog-breeding practices in their own mating practices.
