by David Livingstone — THE HOLINESS OF SIN: FREUD, THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL AND THE KABBALAH (Edited/abridged by henrymakow.com) Sept 21, 2013
Freud’s theories were excessively concerned with sex and especially incest… As Gershom Scholem noted, the Sabbateans were particularly obsessed with upturning prohibitions against sexuality, particularly those against incest…
Baruchiah Russo (Osman Baba), who around 1700 was the leader of the most radical wing of the Sabbateans in Salonika and who directly influenced Jacob Frank, not only declared these prohibitions abrogated but went so far as to make his heresies [which included sex orgies and wife swapping] into commandments of the new “Messianic Torah…”
In his book Moses and Monotheism, Freud makes clear that, as in the case of the Pharaohs of Egypt, incest confers a god-like status on its perpetrators.
In the same book, Freud argued that Moses had been a priest of Aten instituted by Akhenaten, the Pharaoh revered by Rosicrucian tradition, after whose death Moses was forced to leave Egypt with his followers. Freud also claims that Moses was an Egyptian, in an attempt to discredit the origin of the Law conferred by him. Commenting on these passages, David Bakan claims that Freud’s attack on Moses was an attempt to abolish the law in the same way that Sabbatai Zevi did.
