Exaro: Jerome Booth and “New Sparta Films”

This is a reblog from Dux Bellorum, link at the bottom of page, which I am reblogging in good faith. If true it appears to raise a few questions, and initially is a disappointment but the truth must be told.

I can not protect those who appear “on our side”, otherwise I am as bad as the paedophile protectors. I have not seen discussion elsewhere, so I am unsure what to make of it.

EXARO: JEROME BOOTH and  ‘NEW SPARTA FILMS’

Dr Jerome Booth is the Chairman and Owner of New Sparta Group which in turn owns both EXARO News and ‘New Sparta Films’

 

‘NEW SPARTA’ – OLD SPARTA

“Not only were they gay, they werepederasts. Aren’t you glad you asked?Sparta – Sparta, a Dorian polis, is thought to be the first city to practice athletic nudity, and one of the first to formalize pederasty.[71] The Spartans believed that the love of an older, accomplished aristocrat for an adolescent was essential to his formation as a free citizen. Theagoge, the education of the ruling class, was thus founded on pederastic relationships required of each citizen.[72]

Xenophon in his Constitution of the Lacedaimonians says that the relationship among Spartan man and boys “were opposed to” pederasty, that man should make “ideal friends” out of boys, and if that the man was sexually attracted to the boy, it was considered “an abomination” tantamount to incest.[73] Plutarch also describes the relationships as chaste, and states that it was as unthinkable for a lover to sexually consummate a relationship with his beloved as for a father to do so with his own son.[74] Aelian relates that in Sparta, for a man to not have a youth for a lover was considered a deficiency in character, and he was punished for not making another as good as he was himself, despite his excellence.[75] But Aelian also says that if any couple succumbed to temptation and indulged in carnal relations, they would have to redeem the affront to the honor of Sparta by either going into exile or taking their own lives.[76]

The lover was responsible for the boy’s training. Pederasty and military training were intimately connected in Sparta, as in many other cities. The Spartans, claims Athenaeus[77] sacrificed to Eros before every battle.”

    To be fair there’s not one of the big MSM dailies could stand the light of day being shed on them and nor can any of us be sure that people we know or are related to have not been involved or acquiescent to abuse of children or young girls and boys. We can only be certain of ourselves and our immediate circle and that circle rarely includes our employers.

    We all of us can only do as much as we can to expose abuse wherever it is hiding.

    I don’t see how the group name “New Sparta” can feasibly be tainted by reference to sexual practices in Sparta 2500 years ago. Sorry, it’s just innuendo, with no evidence at all.

    If Lord Thomas Pendry is not the Uncle of Tim Pendry, founder of Exaro, then they would have already denied it. The problem is it is fact as admitted to by Tim Pendry himself on 11/9/09.

    One can hide, one can dissemble, one can distract, divert even deceive.

    But one can never escape the Truth in the End. Praise Be to GOD!
