Tupper Saussy

The Catholicist Nation

 

        Tupper Saussy was the writer of several books, including Rulers of Evil, the most telling exposition of the World's powers and principalities outside of the Bible. He passed away in March of 2007 at the age of 70, but much of his work can be found at his website. (For unknown reasons, his website was made unavailable some time during the summer of 2016. Here is a link to the Wayback Internet archive site, you may find it there.)

        I have assembled this page for a firm central link page to items related to him and his work.

 

Rulers of Evil - An introduction to his book. Here is the entirety of the work on PDF.

 

"Abiding in Religious War" - His web series written shortly after 9/11 that was the genesis of the never-published Gods for the Godless.

 

Rulers of Evil synopsis - At the end of 2006 shortly before his death, Tupper made a request that I write a general synopsis of ROE for publication in Wikipedia. After sharing it with Tupper, I presented it but they refused to publish it (even though they do have a page with his biographical information). I then published it at Amapedia at Amazon, and it lasted there for a while until Amazon disabled that service. I then submitted it as a new "Knol" feature at Google, but as of April 2012, they've disabled that service. This synopsis is now at my WordPress site

 

Honest Things - He got the blogging itch for about a year in 2005. Here it is, with this link to his first entry, "Death of a Salesman."

 

"The Most Powerful Man in the World" - A brief job description of the top string-puller.

 

Facebook Group for further discussion of the way the World works.

 

"The Legend Rousseau" - My attempt at replicating Saussy's quite inimitable style of historical elucidation. I don't even presume to get close to matching Tupper's skill, but I do touch a bit on yet another unknown American founding father, one Francisco Suarez.

 

Remarks on Tupper's unpublished "How Jesus Rules the United States."

 

Reconciliation - In a very profound sense, this is the mission statement for those deeply and sincerely desiring to be ungrafted to the World. Shouldn't say a thing about it, really. Check it out for yourself.

 

What ROE Teaches Us - Some thoughts from 2003 about the essential elements of Tupper's work.

A note about Tupper Saussy and his world view. While I am as you know wholly on board with everything he elucidates about the World System, particularly the sophisticated way he explains it all, there are a few areas I do diverge from him. Three key ones are:

1. His insistence that a gold standard brings economic prosperity. While sinful people may need some standard to set their weights and measures, gold is still horribly liable to fluctuations in value and the deceitful machinations of government officials in internationally interactive value assessments. He made a case in favor of gold in his earliest book Miracle on Main Street, and while he made a cogent argument for the security such a standard can provide, I can't believe he didn't soften a bit when realizing that it really doesn't matter, precious metal or central bank, Cain's legacy will still exploit vast numbers of people with their wacky value assignments for those who ask it to do so. If you are a genuine follower of Christ, your value assessments should be based on His love, not the specious pronouncements about shiny yellow rocks.

2. His emphasis on cabalah, particularly that involving numerology. I just don't believe God cares whether or not we know how many there were of something for the purpose of serving as some prophetic declaration, even though some devout Catholicists like to find obscure meaning in numbers and even fabricate relationships to demonstrate some kind of gnostic truth. There are even a few instances in Rulers of Evil in which Tupper tries to establish some number significance that isn't really there, such as five mentions of the "Queen of Heaven" in Jeremiah representing the five points of the pentagram. It may be the case that certain numerical quantities or sequences do have some supernatural meaning, but I don't think God holds it against you if you aren't familiar with them and I simply don't believe they are that important.

3. His apparent embrace of preterism as an eschatological truth. In his later years he seemed to accentuate the principles of preterism as the only reasonable view; however, preterist interpretations of end times events - essentially that all of them happened before or in A.D. 70 - are very weak. Often times preterists dismiss any valid critique by excusing things as being symbolic or simply blurting "It's just a bunch of Jesuit-influenced scholars who support anything not preterist," but this doesn't change the woeful inadequacies of the view. I personally don't think it is the biggest hill to die on - Scripture is clear about how it will all end up anyway. My view is simply this. Take a look at any given eschatological verse of Scripture and prayerfully ask, "Can this be applied to early church history or the present-age church and the future?" Indeed some verses are very strong regarding complete fulfillment in the first century, that's fine. But others simply cannot be, especially many in the Book of Revelation. Look for instance at the 13th chapter of Mark, 26th and 27th verses. That's just one passage, but can you really claim that this applied only to the "true" Christians at that time, that they were the only ones who saw Jesus return and enjoyed being gathered up from the ends of the earth? Really? It is truly a stretch to make that claim considering the very definitive wording in the passage.

These items do not diminish, however, the powerful meaning of ROE and the impact of The Catholicist Nation premise.
