1914 Bohemian Grove play reiterates "hate" obsession and reveals links to German Brotherhood of Death Society

Steve Watson | 4th April 2004












We recently acquired a copy of a 1914 Grove play entitled "Nec-natama" or "Comradeship". On the surface this play reveals nothing new about the activities of the Bohemian Club, yet it does provide evidence of some of the themes we have come to be familiar with at the Grove.








The plot centers around the theme of the pure but foolish White man coming to the Grove and being overcome by an "evil spirit" that conquers love and lures the man to give away his conscience and cares in favor of the dance of a "hating lustful woman". This is highly reminiscent of theme of the Cremation of care ceremony that the elite visitors to the Grove engage in each year.

The man is instantly proclaimed a god by the "hate-Indians" who inhabit the Grove, yet all within are "doomed to hate and strife" by "The Great One".

Those who have renounced goodness and love worship "The Great Hate Chief" who rules with iron fist and without conscience. The Great Hate Chief becomes embroiled in a struggle with forces of goodness and conscience that reside beyond the Grove.

In addition to the general theme of hate, there are numerous references to evil spirits, the darkness of the Grove, torture and sacrifice. There are "Hate braves", "War dancers" "water spirits" and a "master of lighting and illumination". All in all it reads like a Harry Potter book with darker meaning and without the derogatory language.

One final interesting feature of the play is the Swastika on the reverse cover. We must remember that this play dates from 1914, before the rise of Hitler, yet still, there is no doubt that this is an elite symbol, the very reason it went on to become the Nazi emblem.












Swastika is a compound of su -- a particle meaning 'auspicious,' 'blessed,' 'virtuous,' 'beautiful,' and 'rightly'; and astika derived from the verb-root as -- to be; hence 'that which is blessed and excellent.' The Swastika is a very archaic and sacred symbol which can be found in the religious relics of every ancient nation, for it depicts the whole story of the cosmos and man, their contrasting dual aspects, the four directions of space, the revolution of worlds, cyclic progression, and the union of spirit and matter at the heart of things. In H. P. Blavatsky's words:

Within its mystical precincts lies the master-key which opens the door of every science, physical as well as spiritual. It symbolizes our human existence, for the circle of life circumscribes the four points of the cross, which represent in succession birth, life, death, and IMMORTALITY. -- The Secret Doctrine,II, 556-7

As such it's also the sign of the circular movement, the sign of rebirth. It also signifies those who knew about reincarnation (Samsara), who spread all over the world and where they stayed they exerted their influence.

The swastika is one of the oldest known symbols that has been used for over 3,000 years. (That even predates the ancient Egyptian symbol, the Ankh!) Artifacts such as pottery and coins from ancient Troy show that the swastika was a commonly used symbol as far back as 1000 BCE.

In Masonic teachings, "the most ancient Order of the Brotherhood of the Mystic Cross" is said to have been founded by Fohi, 1,027 B.C., and introduced into China fifty-two years later, consisting of the three degrees
in Occultism, it is as sacred as the Pythagorean Tetraktys, of which it is indeed the double symbol.

Taken in the context of 1914, the Swastika must also refer to a German body of some sort. German nationalists in the mid-nineteenth century began to use the swastika in order to counter the feeling of vulnerability and the stigma of youth, because it had ancient Aryan/Indian
origins, to represent a long Germanic/Aryan history.

By the end of the nineteenth century, the swastika could be found on nationalist German volkisch periodicals and was the official emblem of the German Gymnasts' League.

In the beginning of the twentieth century, the swastika was a common symbol of German nationalism and could be found in a multitude of places such as the emblem for the Wandervogel, a German youth movement; on Joerg Lanz von Liebenfels' antisemitic periodical Ostara; on various Freikorps units; and as an emblem of the Thule Society.

The Thule society was The German Brotherhood of Death Society. Adolf Hitler joined this society in 1919, becoming an adept under the leadership of Dietrich Eckhart. The US branch of this Brotherhood of Death is Skull and Bones, and we all know who their members are and where they head every Summer.

It all leads back to Bohemian Grove.

Below are further extracts from the play.
