At The Back Of The North Wind by George MacDonald book review

You may be asking, “Why are you reading phantasy during The War?”

It’s a good question. George MacDonald (1824-1905) is the prototype author for the “fantastic” predictive programming that followed. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, have all named George MacDonald as their mentor.

by William Jeffrey, albumen print, circa 1852-1860

So, let’s go direct to source. George MacDonald, super phantasy with minimal sexual overtones, and intimacy that precludes modern day sexual typecasting and luciferian (Gnostic) reverse-speak.

Commence with phantasm.

It was a light and charming day. Let the North Wind blow at your back, going with the wind towards the final sunset. Let’s see how Diamond does, our main protagonist in this fine, phantastic, tale.

To all vaccinated suffering from sponge brain: The North Wind is THE HOLY SPIRIT. She is The North Wind. Go with her if you want your travails to be manageable.

DON’T BE WICKED AF
Do you still have soul after genetic alterations?
