The Cross has been used as a religious and political symbol by many for centuries.
But what is the meaning behind such imagery?
They seem to resemble an outgrowth of another cross from the foundation of the primary cross.
These men thought of themselves as keepers of the light.
Judging by their association with Lutherism, Freemasonry and other esoteric beliefs - maybe they were.
If those from the East are truly the keepers of the true faith, what does that say about those who are ruled by the New Rome of the West and it's teachings?
While the vampire idea may seem silly at first - what would we call the Western philosophy that teaches one group should conquer another and then suck the livelihood from that culture?
Hasn't Roman-influenced Colonialism been a form of Vampirism?
Aren't our current political and economic practices forms of Vampirism?
Maybe the Vampire stories were meant as allegories warning us to stay away from the Western school of thought.
Maybe many of us cannot help it that we consume so much that we will eventually use up all of our resources.
Maybe, being from the West, it's just in our DNA.
