This is a series called Conspiracy? Our Subverted History by Asha Logos.
I am including the links in order below to support his work because this is one of my favorite historical series, it’s incredibly well researched and made, the links were given to me by a couple of people who are very important to me about a year ago, and I wanted to pass these on in an effort to make sure that as many people see this series as possible - this and the rest of Asha Logos’s work - which I am quite fond of as well. So, do please visit the rest of his channel.
I hope all of you enjoy the series and learn as much from it as I did.
Part 1. Setting the Stage. “Much of what we call civilization seems to spring from a relatively singular genetic and cultural root, which proceeded to disperse across the globe in waves, and it seems their tracks are being buried, obfuscated.”
Part 2. The Scythians and Their Kin. “Agile, independent, self-sufficient... only taking fights on their own terms, and only when the odds favor them.. refusing to play their opponents games or fall into their traps. Unassailable, yet powerfully capable of assailing enemies. Profoundly competent, yet understated and unpretentious. Just, honest, genuine, courageous and magnanimous, yet capable of being ruthless when the situation warranted. To my mind, these are the hallmarks of the 'True Scythian', that most ancient root of the Indo-European people that proceeded to branch out across the known world and subsequently become known as an endless variety of peoples and nations over time.”
Part 3. Hellenic Greece, Troy, and the real 'Game of Thrones.' “In our last video we covered the Scythians, who I believe pushed west into Europe as the Goths, leaving a largely R1a haplogroup trail in their wake. In this video we'll cover their relatives, the Achaean and Hellenic Greeks, as well as the mysterious Trojans, likely responsible for the R1b trail left along the coastal regions of the Mediterranean, and into Rome and Britain.”
Part 4.1. The Germanic Peoples: A Root and its Branches. “I debated not uploading until all material was presented, along with the usual postscript/conclusion, but eventually decided this was the better path. Much more to come, soon.”
Part 4.2. The Germanic Peoples: The Goths, Justice and Order. “I've decided to title this series-within-a-series as Part 4, Part 4.2, and soon to come, Part 4.3.”
Part 4.3. The Germanic Peoples: The End of the Goths. “A high point in the western tradition: strength, competence, stability, order, justice, grace and nobility. Lest we forget.”
Part 5.1. The Oera Linda Book. “One of the most striking discrepancies between how we currently understand our history, and how it was understood and presented by those of previous eras, is in the extent of the connection between the ancestors of modern western mankind to ancient Mesopotamia, Persia, India, Greece and Macedonia and Troy, the Steppes… and one could go on. Nearly every source authored prior to the mid 1900's that touches on the subject matter and the origins of European peoples, stretching back to Homer and the Vedas, speaks of these strong connections, and implies frequent travels and migrations. I've come to believe such connections are stronger than most might imagine. In these videos we'll examine what may be one of the most important sources of such history - authored from within a 'seed' or 'nest' population, quite possibly a key origin point of the *waves* of migration that seem to have taken place over the past few thousand years. Some final notes: In our age, with examples of the healthy feminine almost completely lacking, and opposite examples to be found everywhere, I think its difficult to envision just how positively this deep love and devotion might have manifested when springing from a healthy and well-oriented mind, directed exclusively towards one's kin, nation, and extended family… as opposed to a chaotic dissipation in 360 degrees - on cats, refugees, characters on TV, and everything in between. The vestal-virgin/burg-maiden conception makes more sense, in this light. Lastly - though kindly, noble, and just, this wasn't a pacifistic population. Much like the Spartans or Goths, they don't seem to have *sought out* wars, or fought them lightly - but their martial prowess seems to have been legendary… aided by a far larger stature and frame than neighboring populations, mandated military training for every male at least once every seven days, and a prudent hierarchical structure which we'll cover in the next videos. Their mastery of the high seas may well be inextricably linked with the later British, Dutch, and Nordic dominance. There is much, much more to say.. I look forward to the next productions.”
Part 5.2. The Oera Linda Book. “The second video in a three-part series on the 'Oera Linda Book'. We discuss the probable Phrygian, Greek, and Indian connections, the genetic and cultural overlap with the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, the little known Frisian retaking of Rome, the seemingly anciently related Phoenicians who chose to walk a *very* different path.. and quite a bit more. Who were the 'true' Germans, or 'genuine' Scythians, Saxons, or Fryans - those who speak of 'royal obligations', and seemed to seek justice above all else? Whether conspiracy or organic occurrence or something in between, developing a clear understanding of our history seems to be increasingly difficult. Old books disappear, or are nearly impossible to obtain.. new books dealing with relevant subject matter seem to be a hodgepodge of speculative guesswork, driven by modern political and cultural considerations. This is devastating - the real possibility exists of losing our understanding of our past… and because we orient ourselves according to what we learn, according to what we believe to be past experiences, those capable of proactively authoring the past are essentially shaping the future. Truth *must* win the day, here. All is at stake.”
Part 5.3. The Oera Linda Book. “The third and final part of our three part series on the Oera Linda book, in which we speak to a 'Celtic' offshoot that seems to have moved into South America and the region of New Zealand and Easter Island, to the extremely strong connections to ancient Persia and India, and the growing evidence of a highly competent seafaring civilization that seems to have left port-footprints across much of the known world - especially the most strategically significant locations: Athens, Troy, Crete, Minnagara, Constantinople, Stavoren, Tunis, Tyre, and the northwesternmost part of the Black Sea, near the territory of the Royal Scythians). Among so much more than I didn't have time to include were portions of the 'Skeletons in the Cupboard' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf_in...) documentary speaking to what seems to be aggressive and purposeful destruction of old skeletons, proactively searching them out to grind them into fertilizer. What's so disturbing about these modern trends is that they seem to be international in scope, perhaps even organized and intentional, and fueled by a great deal of money, and help from institutions like the Smithsonian. Whether it be Zahi Hawass preventing digging and exploration in Egypt, China restricting Tocharian sites and planting trees atop the pyramids they refuse to officially recognize, the most important artifacts in the world being looted en masse in Iraq during recent conflicts, or ISIS being used to destroy statues, sculptures, and ancient sites, or the Smithsonian 'misplacing' *thousands* of various findings that don't fit into the conventional historical narrative - it's becoming more and more difficult to believe this broader push to rewrite history isn't willful, intentional. The 'why', here, remains an open question - but this is one of the foremost reasons I decided to begin this series, and why there's much more to come. A sidenote: I sometimes cite legendary accounts, possibly exaggerated or embellished stories, in which the authors have taken artistic/poetic license, and even the occasional snippet of supposed 'fiction' to highlight larger themes running through countless older works. This isn't to say I believe each and every one of these is perfectly factual - we should approach *all* such things with caution/discernment - but rather to say that the totality of these taken together seem to present a powerfully convincing and cohesive story. I'm less interested in details and specifics, more interested in the broader 'flow' of the unfolding storyline.. and believe it has far more to offer, and is vastly more important. Legends and myths and accounts - like a game of 'telephone' - can become a bit muddied and convoluted with the passage of time.. but the core/essence elements seem to speak to 'seed truths' of immense importance. I appreciate the patience (and support)… these take time, but I'll be finding ways to create them more quickly, in the future.”
Part 6. From Holy Men to Dark Magicians. “Perhaps no aspect of our history has been as broadly impactful as the degeneration of our teachers and spiritual leaders. As part of a recurring theme that continues to this day, the role/label/title these earliest high priests and sages helped imbue with such respect, admiration, power and influence, became an irresistible draw to a class of men looking for shortcuts to undeserved power and influence… and this most important of institutions - and the all-important positions within it - thus became their foremost target. What we see in our age, as churches everywhere degenerate into an extension of 'social justice' organizations, and compromise nearly every aspect of their more ancient and fundamental doctrine to fit the poisonous Telos of modernity, might be most accurately framed as merely the final stages of this wholesale subversion. To understand the *root* of what seemed to once be a genuine and healthy spiritual tradition, we have to look back, examine the oldest reliable historical accounts, and peel away the layers of subterfuge, manipulation, and misunderstanding… and recognize that our modern 'intellectuals' and 'experts' are the inheritors of this subversive culture and these subversive personalities who, completely enamored with 'sophistication' and the products of their own fallible intellects, tossed aside the notion of a creative force in the universe, and became the flawed creators and bad artists serving to so cheapen and degrade our existence - inevitably producing such confusion and suffering as by-products. From the conduits of a higher power, to masquerading as this higher power themselves… like whited sepulchres, full of dead men's bones. I strongly believe that finding our way back to that pure and simple 'root' holds *immense* promise for the future - and requires us to first retrace our steps, to gain some understanding of this path of degeneration: these missteps, and this straying borne of confusion.”
