The Deity of our Time: The Goddess of Justice

The Greek (a person using that name) from Ochelli and the Greek has mentioned something along the lines of that the deity of our time is the goddess of Justice who is a cruel being. He pointed out when that deity becomes more popular the word justice becomes more prominent in society. This I find an intriguing observation since nowadays we have Social Justice Warriors and their like causing havoc in the name of the misguided idea of justice.

The idea that our elites worship a goddess known by many names, such as Semiramis, Isis, Ishtar or Columbia, is nothing new, but the association of the goddess with justice is rarely mentioned. I find some of the comments made by The Greek to be insightful, whereas some simply seem like he’s giving off slight hints about something to make him seem more knowledgeable than he actually is.

I decided to look more into the goddess of justice, and this is what I’ve found out so far.

A very interesting character from Greek mythology is Astraea. Wikipedia describes her as follows: “She was the virgin goddess of Innocence and purity and is always associated with the Greek goddess of justice, Dike”. It’s also stated that she became the constellation Virgo, and she is symbolically associated with Dike, since the constellation Virgo is close to Libra.

Let’s take a look at Dike then. According to Wikipedia: “She is depicted as a young slender woman carrying a physical balance scale and wearing a laurel wreath while her Roman counterpart (Justitia) appears in a similar fashion but blind-folded. She is represented in the constellation Libra which is named for the Latin name of her symbol (Scales). She is often associated with Astraea, the goddess of innocence and purity.” I’m not sure what is meant by Astraea and Dike being “associated” with each other. Are they the same character, different aspects of the same character, or sisters or what? The article on Dike mentions that Astraea is an epithet of Dike, but is later Astraea described as her “companion”.

According to Wikipedia¬† Dike was a daughter of Zeus and Themis, and Astraea was a daughter of Astraeus and Eos. This suggests they are a different character. Dike’s Roman equivalent is mentioned as being Justitia, but no such equivalent is mentioned for Astraea. (I originally messed up and said both are daughters of Zeus and Themis, but I edited it.)

I do find the argument that she is the goddess of our time convincing though. Wikipedia shows a picture of “Dike Astraea” from the courthouse at Vermont with the following description above it: “Goddess of justice and the spirit of moral order and fair judgement”. This is what a lot of people, who act as if they were possessed, think they are striving for, although in fact their actions bring opposite results.

Moreover “[a]ccording to legend, Astraea will one day come back to Earth, bringing with her the return of the utopian Golden Age of which she was the ambassador.” Additionally, “Dike lived upon Earth during the Golden and Silver ages, when there were no wars or diseases, men raised fine crops and did not yet know how to sail. They grew greedy, however, and Dike was sickened.” The followers of this goddess clearly want to bring about their Marxist golden age, and in some sense they seem to think that we already live in some sort of golden age, as they believe the government can conjure up unlimited resources from thin air to fuel all sorts of socialist fantasies.

Then there’s one more piece of evidence I will present. When I googled “Astraea”, the search engine suggested “Astraea Foundation”. I wondered what’s that, and turns out it’s the “Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice”. I was speechless. The frontpage of the foundation says “Despite undeniable progress and increased dialog around LGBTQI human rights, we a long way to go. The homophobia, racism, and classicism embedded in laws and culture worldwide put our communities at risk.” This sums up the religion of the modern age perfectly.

Astraea is a goddess of innocence and virginity. In the ancient world losing your virginity usually meant getting married and having children. Perhaps then this Astraea goddess was a lesbian goddess. Her “virginity” meant that she would not have children, and her “innocence” meant that she would not grow up. This how the natural aristocracy of today with transgenders and homosexuals behave; they will not grow up and start a family, nor will they have children, especially if they castrate themselves. Dike is pretty much the same word as “dyke” after all.

Although there is another possibility. Perhaps Dike Astraea is not truly as perverse as the modern followers of her are. Their goddess might be a corrupted aspect of the true goddess of innocence and justice, or the dark forces ruling over our world might be trying to pervert her as they have perverted most other things. Or perhaps what is now happening is that the wheat are being separated from the chaff. The corrupted individuals are allowed revel in their debauchery in order to reveal their foul nature before the goddess does mete out genuine justice.

Dike Astraea is not the only goddess of justice, though. Dike’s mother, Themis, does have similar duties, nor am I sure whether Dike Astraea is the same as Semiramis/Isis/Ishtar/Columbia, but I’ll discuss that at a later date. I suppose that this has something to do with the triple goddess of maiden, mother and crone, however I have to look into that more.
