OSCAR WILDE AND MYSELF
A commentary by
VED from VICTORIA INSTITUTIONS
It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!
What comes out of the revelations
If the various revelations in this book are true, what come out are these things:
1. Oscar Wilde did practise the deviated form of sexual indulgences with individuals who were young and also from the ’lowly class’. However, this is not a rare behaviour. It fact this is more of a common thing in the various locations in the human social system. There are more terrible things happening in the world of sex including sex slavery and forced confining of individuals in brothels with full police and civil administration support in various Asia nations.
2. Alfred Douglas was impressed with his close association with the famous literary figure Oscar Wilde.
QUOTE: In a sense, perhaps, I was rather flattered. I have always been fond of companionship, and Wilde was undoubtedly an entertaining companion when he liked. Besides which he was famous in a way, and it is not always unpleasant to go about with famous people, particularly when they happen to be very civil to one. END OF QUOTE
3. Alfred Douglas’ closeness with Wilde would have sparked a lot of envy. And the shady information that Wilde was involved with certain deviated sexual activity must have been mentioned in connection to their association. However, this kind of connecting does not have much basis. Just because a man has sex with some women does not mean that he is having a sexual relationship with any other woman who is a companion to him.
4. Alfred Douglas had a very superior attitude in that he literally ignored the mean insinuations in the solid belief that it did not concern him. However, in the world of publishing and social conversation, anyone can make a brief hint which can create huge ripples in the whole social sphere, if the involved persons are of resounding social levels.
Here, both Alfred Douglas as well as Oscar Wilde are persons of great personal capacities and resound stature, in different ways.
It may be noted that in the Court trials, certain witness did give testimony admitting the sexual activity. None of their names have come into the limelight. Instead, it is the name of Lord Alfred Douglas that has been mentioned. Mentioning the names of socially lowly-placed or so-defined persons would not create much of a ripple in the higher echelons of the social order.
QUOTE: As I have said, our constant appearances together at cafes, restaurants, theatres and public places set the gossips wagging their tongues. I heard all sorts of rumours which were silly on the face of them and which were a good deal sillier when one thought about them. Naturally, I ignored them utterly. I am convinced that some of the whispers and hints that went around were set going by persons who deemed that I had supplanted them in Wilde's good graces and who were annoyed because, while he still continued to know them, he ceased, in a great measure, to frequent their company. In any case, I was made to feel that certain people were very sore about my ''monopolising Wilde”. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: In point of fact, I had no desire to monopolise him. It was simply impossible to shake him off. If I left him for a day he would seek me out and want to know where I had been and why I had not asked him to accompany me. END OF QUOTE
This need not be romantic possessiveness, but rather the feeling that his relationship to so high a social rank should not be lost or taken-over by some other competing association. The exact mental instructions that come out as some kind of nervous insecurity can be connected to a very specific item in feudal languages. That of the need for a high wall, huge tree, towering mountain, big board etc. in the background to prop up one’s stature. Usually this is given by the presence of a devoted follower, wife, connections to persons of high rank &c.
5. Oscar Wilde going for a legal case against the Lord Queensberry is actually a foolish act. I think it was Ross and his associates who must have spurred him on.
QUOTE: I went with Wilde, at his request, to see a lawyer on the subject. This lawyer had been recommended to him by Robert Ross, who also accompanied us on this occasion. He advised proceedings, and we went to Bow Street and procured a warrant for my father's arrest. END OF QUOTE.
Ross, it appears, want to get rid of Alfred Douglas, by getting his presence sensed as a nuisance.
QUOTE from Wikipedia: Here is the evidence of the club porter, Sidney Wright, from the trial:
"On 18th February the Marquess of Queensberry handed me the card which has been produced. Before handing me the card Lord Queensberry wrote some words on it. Lord Queensberry said he wished me to give that to Mr. Wilde. I looked at the card but did not understand it. I made an entry on the back of it of the date and the time at which it was handed to me. I put it in an envelope which I addressed 'Mr. Oscar Wilde'. When Mr. Oscar Wilde came to the club, on 28th February, I handed it to him, saying that Lord Queensberry had wished me to give it to Mr. Wilde." END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: ... we had spent the hour after lunch in going round to George Lewis, the solicitor, to see if he could do anything. He said it was too late for anything to be done, and that if the matter had been taken to him in the first instance, he would simply have destroyed my father's card and told Wilde not to be a fool. END OF QUOTE
It was actually a small noting on a small business card that had done the switch-on action for the events that followed. However, small switches can set in motion very powerful events. The same is the case with extremely small verbal codes in feudal languages. They can create a homicidal mood in an otherwise placid and serene human being. However, that is another path. I will leave it here.
6. The case against Oscar Wilde was spurred not due to any moral deficiency on Oscar Wilde’s part, but because his ego was bruised. He lived in a celestial world of fabulous letters and words. However, in the physical world, these things did not have a corresponding stature. In the physical world, he did have deficiencies which should not have been allowed to be taken up for judicial and media scrutiny. It was a seeming error of judgement. However, these things are actually pre-planned and pre-arrangement in the far-off and yet quite near Supernatural software arena of reality. For, there was certainly a hidden agenda to get him imprisoned in order to make him write De profundis.
I do not wish to go into that arena and agenda. Let me follow the physical world pathway.
QUOTE: My father had accused Wilde of certain abominations. These accusations it seems were true. Wilde denied the truth of them to me and proceeded to take up what, in view of the facts known to himself and not to me, was a ridiculous prosecution against my father. He was, of course, beaten, and the authorities turned upon him and convicted him of crimes which he had denied. Then I became a convenient scapegoat. END OF QUOTE.
7. In the court room, Wilde could not restrain his chance to showcase his scholarship and mastery over words. However, the machinery of jurisprudence is not impressed by the emotions of words and pedantry. That might be a defect. However, the harm had already been done.
QUOTE: ''If you withdraw from the case now," said Sir Edward, "it will be a nine days' talk, but you will probably hear no more about it so far as the authorities are concerned. If you continue, and Lord Queensberry is found 'not guilty,' they will, in all probability, arrest you in court." END OF QUOTE.
8. Alfred Douglas was doubtless a loyal supporter of Oscar Wilde. He seems to have taken the stand that he had nothing to do with the various accusations. So since his conscience was clear, why should he be bothered about the words of vile tongues?
QUOTE: As I have said, people gossipped about our friendship and exhibited a certain amount of jealousy of me; but I was not then, and never have been, disposed to allow third parties to interfere in my friendships. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: One day he said to me: "Even if these horrible tales were true, you would stick to me, wouldn't you?"
And I said, ''Of course I would." END OF QUOTE.
QUOTE: We talked on general matters for some time, but ultimately Wilde became very serious and said that he did not see how it was possible for him to hope for a verdict of ''not guilty” He then went on to tell me that, "in a way”' the charges set forward in the indictment were true and that he must have been mad to live as he had been living and that his only hope was that the skill of Clarke and Matthews might save him from the severest punishment. He reminded me of my promise not to forsake him and, though I was shocked at what he told me, I am free to confess that it never entered into my head that it was my duty forthwith to give up his acquaintance. END OF QUOTE.
QUOTE: Pretty well everything I have done or said with respect to him has been misconstrued or misrepresented; END OF QUOTE.
In fact, I do not find anyone having come to his aid. So much was the ignominy attached upon him by the whole lot of the Irish gang, including Oscar Wilde, that it was taken as an incontestable and irrefutable fact that Alfred Douglas did have a salacious relationship with Wilde. For, how else could it be?
9. Alfred Douglas was in a quandary with regard to what he was supposed to do.
QUOTE: He pointed out that my continued association with Wilde after the collapse of the case against my father was creating all sorts of comment and prejudice, and that it would be much better for Wilde if I went abroad. END OF QUOTE.
Some associates of Oscar Wilde do seem to have created fake stories of how various events took place during the trial days and its aftermath.
QUOTE: It will interest the reader to know that both these accounts, though they are diametrically opposed one to the other, are the work of the same person — namely, Robert Harborough Sherard. END OF QUOTE.
This Robert Harborough Sherard does seem to have had a very troubled life himself, that he could have acted with spite upon Alfred Douglas. However, I cannot say more as I do not know anything about him.
Alfred Douglas has the same issue that a socially higher person in a feudal language set up interact as an equal with persons who are on the lower levels of the language codes. Douglas is actually Lord Douglas. His major mistake was in forgetting this aspect of his personality. Nobility in England is a small location where the English language does exhibit some slight non-planar features.
Whatever good he did to Oscar Wilde would be misconstrued by the others. There would be some kind of jealousy which cannot be ironed out.
QUOTE: that it was I who took him from the path of rectitude and introduced him to the kennels of foulness; and the impression has been created that I led a debauched life with him prior to his imprisonment and that, when he came out and was willing to mend his ways and be reconciled to his wife, it was I who seduced him and dragged him back to his old villainies. END OF QUOTE
Actually the power of fake news and fabricated stories are quite powerful. Unless one has some powerful support from the supernatural software arena that stands behind reality, one can be done for. If the support is there, all great physical distances become mere miniscule distances. Inimically disposed individuals can be suitably thwarted in their sinister endeavours.
However, in the case of Oscar Wilde, I do feel that the events were set-up in advance for him to move along.
10. The Irish team were set on creating false impressions in the minds of both Oscar Wilde and Alfred Douglas with regard to each other.
QUOTE: Now it is quite clear that during the latter part of his imprisonment Wilde laboured under the impression that my silence and my failure to visit him were due to carelessness, indifference and apathy on my part. Either he did not know, or pretended not to know, of the precise intimations given to me not to visit or write to him. END O QUOTE.
This itself is a clear proof that some kind of feudal language codes were at work. In feudal languages, there is a clear location of sleight. Nothing is straight-forward. Persons speak one thing from the front and say another thing from the back. However, it is not as simple as that. The indicant word levels for such words as He, Him, His etc. and many other things change. These are things not known to the English world.
QUOTE: As he did not hear from me, he concluded that I had forsaken him. This filled him with a violent anger, and he set to work and wrote ''De Profundis.'' His rage and hate apparently knew no limits, and Sherard published a letter of Mrs. Wilde's, in which she states that she had seen her husband in prison and that he had said that if he could get hold of ------------, meaning myself, he would kill him. END OF QUOTE.
It might be true that both persons were misled by the Irish gang. Each were told different stories. Wilde was informed that Alfred Douglas had ditched him. At the same time, Douglas told that Wilde hated him and he needs to keep away. As to Mrs. Wilde, she was also fooled to believe in things that might not have been true.
QUOTE: Wilde had never spoken to me of any manuscript which would be long enough to make a book; neither had Ross, and neither had anybody else. END OF QUOTE.
QUOTE: ''De Profundis" was published in 1895, and I never knew till 1912 — seventeen years later, when the Ransome case was toward—that it was really addressed to me and that the unpublished parts were still in existence and amounted to more than half of the whole manuscript. END OF QUOTE.
It is very evident that the Irish gang did try to manipulate and contain Oscar Wilde among themselves. Even now this is very much evident. In the irascible online encyclopaedia Wikipedia and many other locations, Oscar Wilde is mentioned as Irishman, when actually he had been a citizen of Great Britain or a subject under the monarchy therein.
QUOTE: It is true that at the very moment when he was writing to me in acknowledgment of these sums and to express his gratitude for my kindness, he was complaining to Ross in a letter produced at the Ransome trial that I had deserted him because his money was done END OF QUOTE
Even though the above information might seem that Oscar Wilde did have a dirty double-crossing mind, there is another minute bit of information that might be mentioned here. There is a very standard technique used in feudal language: It is to mention a negative opinion, idea, information &c. about one person to another person. Or else quote his or her words about him or her. This has a sort of drumming effect. When above mentioned things hit the other individual’s mind, he will react and say or do something as a direct opposite action. This reaction would naturally be negative about the person who has been quoted or mentioned. However, this negative reaction can be quoted or mentioned by the others, who actually ignited the whole episode.
Even though these kinds of things can be done in English also, in feudal languages, there are very natural urges that leads individuals to practise this evil art.
QUOTE: After Ross had put his name to the telegram he said to me : "It will carry more weight if I were to put 'Literary executor to Oscar Wilde' under my name." I saw no objection to this at the time, and Ross added the words, and the telegram was despatched so signed. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: However, the next I heard about it was that Ross had stepped in, in his capacity of ''literary executor," and stopped the publication. Ross did this without so much as referring to me in the matter, though, as far as I knew, we were on terms of friendship at the time END OF QUOTE.
This was another usurpation by the Irish gang.
11. Another thing was that Alfred Douglas was reasonably rich. At the same time, Oscar Wilde had no regular source of income. As such, Alfred Douglas standing by Wilde was an act of great magnanimity. It definitely was not romantic feelings that spurred Alfred Douglas to be so liberal financially to Oscar Wilde. It was more or less a feeling that he was helping out a great genius or great personage. And Wilde certainly was a great literary genius. There can be no doubts about that. The only problem was that the genius was not a computer software, but a human being with all the emotional carvings that a human being would have. He would require food, dress, decent dresses, and money for various expenses.
Whether Wilde himself was jealous of Alfred Douglas is not known. But that is also possible. And that he had to depend financially on him might have rankled in him. He had to depend on a young man whose literary capabilities could rise up to be of competitive quality later on.
QUOTE: and I always regarded him as a man who, although he might have spurts of money, was without proper income and resources, and was consequently to be helped out whenever occasion demanded. END OF QUOTE.
QUOTE: but as the world has already been told and is to be told again in 1960 that I got through five thousand pounds' worth of Wilde's ortolans and Perrier Jouet in three years, I here and now venture to tell the world that I did nothing of the kind. In the three years in question, it is exceedingly doubtful whether Wilde ever had five thousand pounds at his disposal. END OF QUOTE
This is from the days much before Oscar Wilde went to prison. It does seem that the persons who were keen on heaping degrading insinuations did really try to pull out anything and everything in their riotous endeavour.
12. When Oscar Wilde was in deep trouble, it seems that actually everyone deserted him other than Alfred Douglas. Even Wilde’s wife did not have the mental stamina to stand by her husband. This is a kind of infidelity that can literally shatter and crack up a human soul, especially in feudal languages. That is a deep topic which cannot be taken up here.
QUOTE: His companions had left the country, his wife would have nothing to do with him, and his general acquaintance was going about London protesting that it had never known him. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: Why did they not take him to his wife? They were with him for weeks at Berneval, and so was Sherard. Why was the reconciliation—which Sherard professes to have laboured like Hercules to arrange—never brought about? END OF QUOTE.
Actually if Wilde’s wife had been persuaded to go back to him and be his great supporter, Oscar Wilde would have risen up from the anecdotal aches. In feudal language, wife or any other female or even a faithful follower can insert a powerful wall or pillar of support. It is there in the verbal codes of feudal languages. If his wife had the mental profundity to stand by him come what may, the biography of Oscar Wilde would have had a different tone. He would have emerged unscathed.
Even his children disowned him. For, ultimately all accusations connected to the physical body would have been obliterated by the fabulous genius that Oscar Wilde had. The next generation would shower praise upon praise on him.
The smallness of the mind of Oscar Wilde is in connection to his physical self, his feudal language nativity and his association with people of lower scholarship and rectitude. In fact there are hints that Oscar Wilde’s physical life was a pretence. However even his pretence was superb in its competence.
QUOTE: because his only aim in conversation was not to say what he believed, but to say what he supposed to be witty, profound, whimsical or brilliant at the moment. END OF QUOTE.
But then, in the world where his genius works, he is supremely the Lord. This royal entity would have reappeared, had his wife stood by him. However, she stood as the pillar of support for his detractors by simply disowning him. Small-minded individuals being the spouses of individuals with grand capabilities can be a terrible imposition on the latter.
13. Now let us take the experience of Alfred Douglas with regard to De profundis. It might be seen that Oscar Wilde did commence the writing with a very overpowering sense of hatred for Alfred Douglas. There could be a few reasons for that. None of them of the romantic kind.
It was a legal fight with Alfred Douglas’ father that ended up in disaster for him. So his connection with Douglas can be easily be understood or misunderstood as the reason for the cataclysmic incidences.
Then there was the feeling that even though some of Wilde’s lowly friends had come to meet him in prison, Douglas had stayed away. Here both Wilde as well as Douglas was bearing the brunt of a double-edged blade. Oscar Wilde’s lowly friends had worked on both sides to create a chasm between them. It was their need to occupy the vacuum created by the absence of Alfred Douglas.
Wilde must have felt much the betrayal or ditching by his friend, along with the terrific feeling that it was he who was the cause of his troubles. Actually everything was true in the exact reverse, it might be understood. Those of his friends who stood by him might have their own, concealed-from-him, ulterior motives. His wife seems to have deserted him literally, having been tricked by selective information to believe that her husband was a delinquent.
However, there is another item that has gone totally unnoticed. That is, Wilde is from a feudal language nativity. When he is down and under the worst help he can get is to be accosted by friends from a lower order. What he desperately needs in such an hour of desperation is a companion from the heights. The presence of this companion can literally send the indicant word verbal codes spiralling to the heights.
It is like this. An unknown man of nondescript features is arrested by the Indian police in some place in India. The police do not know where to place him in the hierarchal verbal codes. By talking to him, he exhibits a higher social level personality. However by his dress and outward demeanour, he looks quite from a lower order.
The quandary that the police face is which level of You, He etc. should be assigned to him. The App level or the Thoo level. Both these levels are astronomically poles apart.
At the correct vital moment a phone call comes from a high official. He mentions that the person in question is connected to powerful levels in the Indian social scene. The phone that has come is literally god-sent for the arrested man. No one has even come physically to support him. Just a phone call.
If instead of the phone call, certain poor and downtrodden persons arrive. They are his relatives. They have come to support him. This is a terrible kind of support for a person whose actual personality feature assessment had been vacillating in the minds of the policeman. The moment they see his support team, the verbal codes go crashing down. He is treated like dirt.
However, Oscar Wilde is imprisoned in England. So these things do not matter much. But then he is still connected to a feudal language society innately. Over there, the presence of Ross might not gain him the verbal heights. But Alfred Douglas’ presence would insert positive numerical values into the software codes location connected to Oscar Wilde, in the supernatural software arena of reality.
This total absence of this positive encodings must have created a deeply depressing mood in him. He must have yearned for the presence of Alfred Douglas.
14. Oscar Wilde seems to have used his terrific anger to place Alfred Douglas in the shady spot, from which Alfred Douglas never seems to have emerged out. I have seen plenty of writings claiming that Alfred Douglas was Oscar Wilde’s lover who created the mess and who had then ditched him. See the picture and the caption that came out in independent.co.uk. The demonic waywardness of defining another person negatively without anything to substantiate the vicious claim is astounding.
Alfred Douglas must have been nothing of that sort, other than have a stubborn mood that he need not react or notice the words of lowly people who spoke and wrote with authority on things about which they had very feeble information. It is quite easy to imagine that all other people have the same mental desires and emotions which they themselves have in the concealment of their souls. It is not true. It is not correct on the part of pygmies to judge giants by their own mental depositions, cravings, inhibitions and even native-language codes. In fact, many things to which a feudal language speaker reacts to emotionally are totally non-existent in a planar-language speaking person.
QUOTE: I conceived a great and lasting affection for this man; and, when he was in trouble, I fought for him and defended him through thick and thin and without any regard to rhyme or reason or my own interest. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: ...whereas Wilde's design was utterly to destroy the reputation and good name of a man who had befriended him; and to do this in such a way that he might still continue to obtain kindness and money from the object of his hatred and leave him absolutely without a word of defence in his lifetime. END OF QUOTE
Oscar Wilde radiating ample hints that he did have an unsavoury bohemian relationship with Alfred Douglas could also be due to more than one desperation. If he could manage to entangle Lord Alfred Douglas’ name into the ignominy, the grandness of the connection would literally erase into oblivion the names of the other persons who had been his real partners in the indulgences. The problem was that these persons had been described as lowly.
Connecting to Lord Alfred Douglas had its advantage in that Oscar Wilde’s outrageous sexual activities would then be seen as one with the heights of the social order and not with the lower classes. At least in a feudal language, this would have a mighty positive tone.
Now the world knows Oscar Wilde’s sexual depravations had been with a person who was destined to be ‘Lord’ of the English nobility, and not with the depths of the social order. One might remember here the words in Aesop Fable’s in the tale, The farmer and the stork: “You are judged by the company you keep.”
Oscar Wilde did win in his efforts at distorting events to place a claim that his companion in decadence had been a member of the English Royalty.
I do get to feel that many of Oscar Wilde’s words do chime from a deeper and more remote repository of supernatural knowledge than has been mentioned.
In fact, I did notice a great depth in his words:
‘There is no mode of action, no form of emotion that we do not share with the lower animals. It is only by language that we rise above them.’
But then, whether certain animals are capable of a different medium or mechanism for communication needs to be pondered upon. However that theme is off-track here.
QUOTE: Any one who knows me must be well aware that, when it came to the question of his ultimate vices, such influence as I had over him was on the side of goodness and decency rather than otherwise. END OF QUOTE.
The major issue at hand was that Oscar Wilde was in the companionship of lowly individuals, mainly from his own language nativity. And he himself was not an Englishman, even though he seemed to have assumed for himself the Lord of the (English) language.
Alfred Douglas is seen to be quite obviously from a higher mental standards and calibre. This is a location of conflict. On one side Oscar Wilde is encumbered with lowly companions. Or the other he has the companionship of an individual who by all definitions is from the higher social and mental echelons. The former side will not be able contain their seething anger. Why such an unbridle-able anger should emerge cannot be understood in pristine-English. It is simply that in feudal language verbal codes, everything is defined in comparative wordings. Each word for You, Your, Yours, He, His, Him, She, Her, Hers bear this burden in feudal languages. They splinter into an array of comparative words, which may seem to be synonyms, but are not. They are words that exist in different locations in a vertical ladder (different indicant level words).
Alfred Douglas’ certain attributes are indelible by any means. One is that he is a native-Englishman. Second is that he belongs to the nobility. The first is a quality that is actually of the highest quality in the world of human populations. Even persons who decry it secretly would wish to get exiled into a native-English social system, from their own mother-land social systems. They would willingly ditch everything, including their mother, to reach an English society.
The only way to attack the inerasable and yet much sort for attributes of Alfred Douglas is to heap it with ignominy. This, they have succeeded in, one should assume.
Personally speaking, I have a certain experience online more or less in sync with what I had written about quality standing along with mediocrity. I came upon the Wikipedia around 2004 or so. I do not remember exactly. Quite by accident, when searching for something online, I came upon one of the Wikipedia India pages. I noticed that most (not all) of the writings were downright low-class and full of insertions promoted by the private aspirations and loyalties of the writers therein. When I tried to write in the various TalkPage (not in the article) some information that could be used to correct the various malicious lies, what confronted me was a terrific attack of a concealed kind. My insertions were seen manipulated so as to make it seem that I was indulging in vandalism. Even my Profile page was seen filled with writings which were not mine.
In those days, Internet was pretty slow. And I was having a lot of issues on the personal front. So, I could not deal with these kinds of things. Almost all my writings into the Talk pages were attacked with some kind of terrific brutality. It was easily seen that even the extremely overpaid Indian academic crowd which one should suspect has taken command over the Indian Wikipedia pages were inimical to ideas that I posted on to the various talk pages. Even the mention of ‘feudal language’ was seen not allowed.
After a few years of being attacked verbally, one time I was so provoked so as take an offensive stand. This was a mistake on my part. Usually I refrain from going for a confrontation with lower class individuals. I have since remained banned on Wikipedia. It is a curious experience. I do not generally write anything that can be mentioned as abusive or containing expletives.
15. De profundis is a book of hate only in the commencing areas, I think. As to the rest of the pages in the book, it is clearly seen that Oscar Wilde made use of the settings, emotions and mood to create a sort of philosophical book. As a book of philosophy, I cannot say as to how it would rank. But then, as a book of exquisite words and prose in poetry, the writing is indeed a fabulous one.
QUOTE from De profundis: so that while for the first year of my imprisonment I did nothing else, and can remember doing nothing else, but wring my hands in impotent despair, and say, 'What an ending, what an appalling ending!' now I try to say to myself, and sometimes when I am not torturing myself do really and sincerely say, ‘What a beginning, what a wonderful beginning !' END OF QUOTE
16. The question of whether Alfred Douglas did actually act as a traitor needs to be taken up for inspection.
QUOTE: At our first meeting after his release Wilde told me that he had "a hideous confession to make." He said that while he was in prison he had been told that I was no longer loyal to him and that I had expressed contempt for his sufferings. END OF QUOTE
When Alfred Douglas is disposed off, Robert Ross and his gang can take over the connection. They desperately might need a prop in the social hemisphere – this desperation is encoded deep inside feudal languages, if the concerned person does not have a solid social height. As for Alfred Douglas, he is from the social heights, and does not need a prop to keep him up.
QUOTE: I told him that I cared nothing for gossip and scandal, that I had asked Wilde to stay with me because he had nowhere else to go and was practically without means, and that it was unthinkable that in these circumstances I should turn him out of my house simply because evil-minded people chose to concern themselves with what was no affair of theirs. END OF QUOTE.
The above stance is actually a stance of high rectitude, mental stamina and a powerful disregard for the opinion of ill-informed, low-class individuals who speak with authority on subjects in which their information is just next to nil.
QUOTE: and, further, that I had lived upon Wilde after his imprisonment and left him stranded at Naples when his financial resources were exhausted. END OF QUOTE.
It is very easily understandable that Oscar Wilde never had any solid source of income. And after he came out from the prison, he had to depend on the erratic and unreliable support of his friends or persons who mentioned themselves as his friends. It might be true that they could not support him financially. Only Alfred Douglas must have had the mental and financial stamina to support him. This was a deed that could be easily misconstrued by anyone.
In fact, almost all such misinterpretations of all unknown events do have one basic problem. It is that there are so many conversations and decision-makings that go into all these kinds of events. The person who views the outcome from the outsides has the seeming advantage of being able to arrive at profound conclusions and understandings of what are long-term aims of such conversations and decision-making, without knowing the contents of these conversations and decision-makings.
QUOTE: I speedily came to consider him in the light of a permanent pensioner, and my servants had instructions to give him food, and not infrequently lent him money in my absence. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: I came into a considerable amount of money under my father's will, and the very first payment I made out of my inheritance was one hundred pounds, which I sent to Oscar Wilde in Paris. END OF QUOTE
There was a dichotomy in the way the association with Oscar Wilde would affect an associate or friend or well-wisher.
In the case of Ross and others of the Irish gang and also other literary associates, they could help him or continue their friendship with him or even go around with him. Whether their help is monetary or simple morale support, their action would not affect them negatively. In fact, they can bask in the glow of a reputation of standing by their friend or literary genius. They could publicise that fact. They could write about it with a pose of seeming resounding authenticity. It would add to their own literary assets.
However, the experience of Alfred Douglas was of a terrific difference. For him to stand by his friend would require a lot of mental stamina and the solid courage of conviction that he had done nothing wrong. He was guilty of imagined crimes only in the words and imagination of inimical others and those who swallowed the lies hook, line and sinker. Many people love to hear and repeat anything tasteless, vulgar and salacious about others. It is an entertainment for most persons, if they have nothing of a better quality to entertain themselves.
That he provided financial support as well as moral support to Oscar Wilde without broadcasting the details for personal profit, and also gave peanut value for the outraged sensibilities of others, who really had no direct interest or loss in his helping Wilde also bespeaks of his fabulous mental stature. It takes a lot of innate stamina to stand by one’s convictions. He refrains from retorting or reacting to extremely indecent imputations about his own moral standards and sexual orientations. These are things that really could pierce into the soul of a person of rectitude. That he bore the pain without being trampled down by remorse and feelings of guilt is also great. For, he seems to have a very clear conscience. It is easy for any low-class wise fellow to simply claim this and that about others. After all what has he to lose?
I do not know if there have been many writings on these salacious stories done by womenfolk in England, Great Britain or elsewhere. I do not seem to have noticed any. May be I did not search enough. However, if there had not been much such disingenuous writings by women, that also might be an issue worth studying from certain perspectives. I leave it here.
QUOTE: Surely if any man has had cause for tears and bitter regrets, I have had cause. All my life, from twenty years of age up, has been overshadowed and filled with scandal and grief through my association with this man, Oscar Wilde. END OF QUOTE
QUOTE: If I have hurt anybody at all it has been myself and my family, and I have done this only through misplaced loyalty to my friend and a too high regard for chivalry. END OF QUOTE
17. This book has two different faces to it. Or may be more. I have noticed two. One is Alfred Douglas’ attempt at clearly delineating what had really taken place. The second face is that of Douglas’ attacking Oscar Wilde and his writings in a very bitter manner. Here he goes into the various merits and demerits of the mind and thought processes of Oscar Wilde. And on its contents, inclinations, hues and hints, and the spirit it is seen to be possessing. Beyond that he does look into the influence that his writings have had on England as a whole.
On the whole, his appraising of the works and conversations of Oscar Wilde are hued by the huge amount of hatred that had been ignited in him by the Irish gang.
QUOTE: all his views and his expressions of opinion with respect to art were not the views and opinions of the person who loves and knows art, but were designed to illustrate his own singularity or superiority, or to support a pose. END OF QUOTE
This kind of insight on Oscar Wilde’s words might only have come from a physical world association with Wilde the individual. The biological being that is Oscar Wilde might be more of a shallow being than the Oscar Wilde that exists in his words and ideas.
QUOTE: We have comic judges and comic counsel who manage to keep the King's Courts in ripples of merriment. We have even a comic magistrate or two. In Parliament the mordant humourist and the man who can say sharp things are the only ones to be listened to; sarcastic bishops and witty clerics abound.
And as for the gentlemen of the press, they are all bent on the leer, at whatever cost. If you look closely into these professed or unprofessed fun-makers, you are bound to perceive that the majority of them are little Oscar Wildes to a man. They look on life with a confirmed squint and they cannot see that there is anything human about which it is not desirable that they should make jokes. END OF QUOTE
The truth of the matter is that England has always been showered and bombarded with a lot of alien cultural and social behaviour attitudes since the commencement of the English colonial enterprises. Every kind of dangerous and total hideous social and mental features of feudal language social systems has seeped into England, which is basically a planar language nation.
It is a grand wonder that England still holds on. How long more England can hold on to its celestial standards is a moot point.
Before concluding this writing, I need to mention I have come across very fabulous statements in this book. I hope to highlight them in the text of the book. However, I will quote one of them here. For, it is quite singular that it quite queerly is in sharp sync with my one of my writings on the Software codes of reality.
QUOTE: It was a mind which was continually discovering with a glow that two and two make four, or pretending to discover with a much warmer glow that two and two make five. END OF QUOTE
The superb fact indeed is that if in the arena of the Supernatural software codes that exist behind Reality, one could made a slight change in the software codes, two plus two can be made to be five.
