Dark Journalist has hit a new stride with his livestreams. This week, he’s joined by Joseph Farrell. They discuss early Theosophy, Swedenborg, Steiner, Blavatsky, Besant, Mesmer – and Bush. Yes, George Bush, uncle of Prescott Bush (Dubya’s grandfather).
George Bush was a Presbyterian minister and the author of the 1830 book, ‘Life of Mohammed’, the first written about Islam by an American author and published in the US. Bush, who was a longtime professor at Dartmouth University fell out of favor with the academy when he became a Spiritualist. Bush was also one of the first-ever Zionists.
There are so many interesting details about this era which the two discuss as only they can. It’s a real treat!
