I was reading about Otto Grass and I found an article titled "The dissolute Otto Gross, the antepenultimate Dionysiac" by Pedro Paunero:
Otto Gross (1877-1920), was the bastard father of the counterculture (in one of its deepest aspects, the exploration of the mind through the use of psychotropics); a pioneer of the sexual revolution, a leftist Freudian (of the communist and matriarchal type) and a utopian who would move a time to the enclave of Monte Veritá, on the city of Ascona, around 1905, in the Swiss Alps, where they would spend a significant time for the development of their works and ideas, colorful characters of culture
, theosophy, naturalism, neo-paganism and the literary and artistic avant-garde such as Herman Hesse and Paul Klee. But he was also an outstanding student and patient of Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung. Gross, during his internship in the Burghölzli asylum, was convinced that Carl Gustav Jung, his doctor and formerly his friend, was both a charlatan and a religious fanatic. Gross fought, and lost against the patriarchal authority, advocating a matriarchal solidarity that he did not enjoy either.
Pedro Paunero tells a passage of the life of Otto Gross at Monte Verita:
"The sun is god
," Ida Hoffman had said, "and bathe with its rays the mother goddess, the Earth. (Dionysus is also the sun according to some scholars. Dionysus was born to a virgin mother, and he was known as: the Vine, Our Lord, the Saviour, the Judge of the Dead, the Deliverer, the Born Again and the only begotten Son of God. Above the head of Dionysus were the words: "I am Life, Death, and Resurrection, I hold the winged crown)
Otto Gross looked at the morning sky. Some bird was hovering over the mountains. From the terrace of the mansion you could see, below, the row of naked bodies, men and women, that left the house, in single file, like the sinuous body of a snake, towards the illuminated fields. A short time later they danced in circles, bathing their bodies in the sun and a light sweat.
The utopia was called Monte Verita -said Gross-" the Mountain of Truth. Here it is! Where I can develop and implement my ideas. Frieda von Richthofen and her sister Else, dressed only in transparent robes came to him:
-Lets go to bed! Said Else. I want a son of yours.
-You can have all the children you want with all the men you want ..." said Gross.
-But at this moment I want a son of yours," Else insisted.
The women pulled Gross by the arms, the book fell to the ground. The three went to a room. They spent all day having sex, alternating the brief breaks to eat fruits, vegetables and soy preparations, the only foods available in Monte Veritá, where the meat was eradicated
along with the ills of the capitalist and urbanized world.
-Do you know what the Monteveritans call us in Ascona?" Frieda said, trying to distract Otto's attention, the balabiott, the ones who "dance naked." And they call us the whores, the demoniacs, the dissolute ones. We are succubi for those villagers.
-Otto is" the dissolute one, "Else said," the Master of the Orgies
, "and he kissed his sister.
Gross got up, exasperated. The women looked at that handsome man, with intense blue eyes, a limpid blond, body carved in carnal porcelain and to which anyone willingly surrendered. His presence was magnetic and whoever fell into his circle of power did not leave so easily.
Frieda thought of Lord Byron, as vampiric as Gross, as vitalist as Otto, both Dionysians.
- My beautiful white Dionysus! Frieda implored, extending her arm from the bed. "Where are you going?" -but Gross did not listen.
Otto went down into the woods, breathed the smoke in the air, and headed for Lotte Hattemer's ruined hut, under the trees. She was also naked, in front of the house and had lit her own fire. He raised his arms to heaven, with his eyes closed. Her erect nipples pierced, punctured and erotized the night air. Lotte was a suicide.
-The world will continue without me! She said. That's the way it should be! Will I return to the womb of the Mother, will Father Sun be to kiss my forehead?"
Dionisio sets a limit for his followers wrote Paunero. "As Kavafis points out, committing suicide is accepting the end of the Dionysian pleasures
in life and if the god sings and moves away it is because he invites us to follow him in the Hereafter. Dionisio is a conductor of souls: that distance is, then, an invitation to go after himself and his court of satyrs, maenads and centaurs and enjoy the Greater Mystery that is solved in the cave of Eleusis, in Greece: the opening of the eyes. The "abandonment", then, is a gift in the deepest and Dionysian sense."
When Otto Gros, forgotten by all, died in a street of Berlin in the poverty, he had to listen to the Thiasos-Dionysus that gave him reach and left him behind. He must have seen the car made of silver of Dionysus, pulled by the roaring panthers of the god, he must have seen the Bacchantes opening with their fingers their sex and showing their teeth and the satyrs of phallic phalluses, playing the flutes, and dancing wild. And he must have known that Dionysus did not abandon him. As a follower of the god, contemplating the Thiasos is a glorious act of culmination of a life of achievements, almost always misunderstood.
It is being invited to follow him. A divine gift and a triumphant vision: the acceptance that the mortal life is over, and that the ascent begins on the silver trail left by satyrs and bacchantes"....
After reading this passage from Monte Verita the NXIVM cult
events came to mind. These things seem to have happened commonly in Monte Veritas and what happens in the sexual slave cults:
1. The need for a utopia.
2. A religion
3. A leader whose presence is "magnetic and whoever fell into his circle of power did not leave so easily"
4. Control through sex and punishment.
5. The abandonment is very important for the kool-aid to work
Frank Parlato, who first exposed Nxivm's activities on his website the Frank Report, says that controversial Raniere developed Rainbow Cultural Garden
with the help of Dr Brandon Porter, a New York doctor currently under investigation after allegedly carrying out traumatising experiments on women in which he made them watch video clips of violent rapes and murders. According to Parlato, parents are told not to speak to their child or interfere with the nannies while they are speaking the different languages.
Rainbow Cultural Garden seems to be the new Monte Verita!!.... or Monte Verita to global Level.
