Pachacutec, Role Model for a New Peru? (August 3, 2001)

Peru’s President Alejandro Toledo has made much of the comparisons between himself and Pachacutec, the ninth Inca emperor who expanded his realm by brutal conquest.. The promise implicit in Toledo's comparison is the restoration of the once glorious Inca empire; in theory something to be desired, at least for the Discovery Channel and Toledo's NWO  supporters. However, we must remember that Adolf Hitler at one point expanded German territory by conquest, and Mussolini, of course, made the trains run on time, but where did it get them? While all fascists appeal to the gullible with enchantments of glory and gold, can the bombastic NWO Puppet of Peru transform himself into a modern day Pachacutec? 

Pachacutec
Pachacutec was originally named Cusi Yupanqui, a general in the service of the Inca ruler Viracocha. The story goes, that by  praying to the Sun God, who then converted rocks into soldiers, Yupanqui was able to seize power. He changed his name to Pachacutec ("he who changed the world"), and proceeded to attack and destroy the surrounding Chanca tribe from Ayacucho.  He then strengthened his control over the people by every means in order to raise an army to conquer other neighboring tribes.

In 1438, Pachacutec subdued two tribes in the Tambo Valley, sacking the towns and annexing its agricultural properties to his family estate. He then crossed the Apurimac River to confront the Sora and Rucana tribes. The former were exterminated totally while the Rucana were reduced to a caste class and ordered to carry the carriages and goods of the Inca in perpetuity.  The next group to be exterminated were the Apu, who simply ceased to exist. Further conquest were made over the people of Callao, Arequipa, the Mantaro Valley, the Chincha (Ica), and the territory today known as Lima, among others.

Having thus eliminated any potential competition, Pachatcutec set about consolidating his power. Among his first moves was to organize a central administrative headquarters, "Tahuantinsuyu”, which would control every aspect of the lives of his subject for the central government. Any concept of private or family property was a thing of the past, any center of worship outside of the central temple at Cusco was eradicated, every aspect of daily life was solely for the benefit of the emperor and his family.

Towns and regions outside of Cusco were forced to support an increasing level of bureaucracy from the central government, but all decisions were always made in Cusco. Taxes and impositions varied, from 30% of all agricultural production (in kind), to each town's supplying one in ten males for the emperor's armies and one in five females for servicing the emperor and the nobility (again, a lifetime job, until they were too old to be useful). Finally, all gold existing in the country was sent to Cusco to adorn the emperor and his Temple of the Sun. Those tribes who had the misfortune of living near gold bearing land formations (Cajamarca etc.), were subject to forced slave labor to comply with their quotas of providing gold for the needs of the emperor and his family.

Religious Control
One of the essentials in Pachacutec’s consolidation of power was the control of religion. In terms of religious freedom, Pachacutec prohibited the then-current practice of ancestor worship (which was diverting resources from his military needs), and ordered thousands of mummies burned (Prior to this, each Inca family had kept their ancestors in the home in mummy form, providing them daily with food, clothing and other necessities). To replace these religious practices, Pachacutec resuscitated the centuries-lost custom of child sacrifice, whereby infants and children were alternately thrown from mountain sides or had their throats cut to improve agricultural production and the general economy. This consolidation of power was the lynch pin for Pachacutec’s series of conquests, which like others, before and after him, was of highly questionable benefit to those conquered.

Will Alejandro (and his NWO controllers), deliver up the Peruvian people to the 'glory days' of another Pachacutec?

Only Time will tell.
