I-45 (§761):

Sector of sects great premium to the denouncer:
Beasts on the theatre, the scenic play rehearsed:

(Secteur de sectes grand preme au delateur:
Beste en theatre, dressé le jeu scenique:
Du faict antique ennobli l'inventeur,
Par sectes monde confus & scismatique.)

NOTES: Secteur: = sector. « secteurlat. sector coupeur (cutter) ← secare couper (to cut).» (Ibuki); « sector, m. [secō], a cutter(Smith-Lockwood); « secō, to cut; to divide, separate.» (Smith-Lockwood).

Sector of sects: = Stalin, he who is at any cost going to reveal his rivals in sole power in the Party to be fractional, to be in a sect, to be against the Party, to be opposing the Party he masters in order to expel and destroy them.

As far as the expression ‘secteur de sectes (sector of sects)’ is concerned, V. Ionescu’s interpretation seems right in relating it to Nikolai Lenin, who in speech was worth “sectarian” (Ionescu, 1976, p.442-445), and in deed, too, because he established the Russian regime upon a narrow and steep basis of the Soviet Bolshevik Party, excluding all the other parties and forces. However, all the other elements in addition to this predicted in the quatrain are inevitably referring to his immediate and developed successor Joseph Stalin, who shall expel and destroy all his rivals in sole power as ‘fractionalists’ (those in sects in the party) one after another within the Communist Party itself.

Sector of sects: « Soon Stalin was resurrecting the old Trotsky-Lenin rows. At the thirteenth Party Congress in May 1924 he branded Trotsky with the Leninist term of ‘fractionalist [= sectarian]’. Trotsky refused to retract his criticism that Stalin was becoming too powerful. But he could not dispute Lenin’s condemnation of internal opposition and, like a man accused of heresy by the Inquisition, he was disarmed by his own religious belief. ‘Comrades’, he admitted, ‘none of us wishes to be right or can be right against the party. The party is in the last resort always right... I know that one cannot be right against the party. One can only be right with the party and through the party, since history has created no other paths to the realization of what is right.’ Since Stalin was already in control of the party, Trotsky’s words forged the ice-pick that crushed his skull sixteen years later. By the end of 1924 Stalin, with Kamenev and Zinoviev doing the dirty work, had created the heresy of ‘Trotskyism’ and related it to Trotsky’s earlier disputes with Lenin, who had been embalmed and put into his apotheosis-tomb five months earlier. In January 1925 Stalin was thus able to strip Trotsky of the army control with the full approval of the party... With Trotsky destroyed, Stalin turned on his Leftist allies. Early in 1925 he stole Kamenev’s Moscow party from under his nose by suborning his deputy, Uglanov. In September he brought in Bukharin and the Right to help in a frontal attack on Zinoviev – Kamenev, and had them decisively defeated at the Party Congress in December. Immediately afterwards, Stalin’s most trusted and ruthless henchman, Molotov, was sent to Leningrad with a powerful squad of party ‘heavies’, to smash up Zenoviev’s party apparatus there and take it over – essentially the same methods, but on a larger scale, that Al Capone was employing to extend his territory in Chicago at that very time. Frightened, Zinoviev now joined forces with Trotsky, the man he had helped to break. But it was too late: they were both immediately expelled from the party, and at the fifteenth Party Congress in December 1926, Kamenev’s protest was shouted down by the massed ranks of carefull drilled Stalinists who now filled the party’s ranks. Consciously echoing Lenin, Stalin came out into the open against his old allies: ‘Enough comrades, an end must be put to this game.... Kamenev’s speech is the most lying, pharasaical, scoundrelly and roguish of all the opposition speeches that have been made from this platform.’ The moment the Left was beaten and disarmed, Stalin began to adopt their policy of putting pressure on the peasants to speed industrialization, thus preparing the means to destroy Bukharin and the Right. The big clash came on 10 July 1928 at a meeting of the Central Committee, when Bukharin argued that while the kulak himself was not a threat – ‘we can shoot him down with machineguns’ - forced collectivization would unite all the peasants against the government. Stalin interrupted him with sinister piety, ‘A fearful dream, but God is merciful!’ God might be, but the General-Secretary. The next day, a scared Bukharin speaking on behalf of his allies Rykov, the nominal head of the government, and Tomsky, the hack ‘trade union leader’, had a secret meeting with Kamenev and offered to form a united front to stop Stalin. He now realized, he said, that Stalin was not primarily interested in policy but in sole power: ‘He will strangle us. He is an unprincipled intriguer who subordinates everything to his appetite for power. At any given moment he will change his theories in order to get rid of someone [Sector of sects].’ None of these nervous men had the numerical support in the key party bodies to outvote Stalin; or the means, in the shape of trained men with guns, to overrule him by force; or the skill and resolution – both of which he had shown in abundance – to destroy him by intrigue. In 1929 they were all dealt with: Rycov ousted from the premiership, Tomsky from the trade union leadership, and both, plus Bukharin, forced publicly to confess their errors (Kamenev and Zinoviev had already done so). They could now be tried and murdered at leisure.» (Johnson, 1991, p.264-266); « Immediately Zinoviev and Kamenev were dead [August 1936], Stalin ordered Yagoda to execute more than 5,000 party members already under arrest. This was the beginning of the Great Terror. Soon after this was done, Stalin sent from Sochi, where he was on holiday, the sinister telegram of 25 September 1936: ‘We deem it absolutely necessary and urgent that Comrade Yezhov be nominated to the post of People’s Commissar for Internal Affairs. Yagoda has definitely proved himself to be incapable of unmasking the Trotskyite-Zinovievite block [a sect]. The
OGPU (Special Government Political Administration) is four years behind in this matter.’ This was followed by the systematic purge of the secret police, carried out by teams of two to three hundred party zealots secretly recruited by Yezhov. Next Stalin eliminated his old Georgian friend Ordzhonikidze, the last Politburo member allowed to call him by his nickname ‘Koba’ or to argue with him: he was given the choice of shooting himself or dying in the police cells. After February 1937 Stalin could kill anyone, in any way he wished [Sector of sects]. At the CC plenum at the end of the month, it ‘instructed’ Stalin to arrest Bukharin and Rykov. Bukharin pleaded tearfully for his life. Stalin: ‘If you are innocent, you can prove it in a prison cell!’ The CC: ‘Shoot the traitor!’ The two men were taken straight off to prison and death; Yagoda was later heard to mutter, ‘What a pity I didn’t arrest all of you before, when I had the power.’ (It made no difference: of the 140 people present, nearly two-thirds would shortly be murdered.) From the end of 1936 to the second half of 1938, Stalin [Sector] struck at every group [sects] in the regime. In 1937 alone he killed 3,000 senior secret police officers and 90 per cent of the public prosecutors in the provinces.» (Johnson, id., p.300-301).

Preme: = Récompense (recompense, reward, prize, award) ; « Preme (?). Récompense? – Faire les bons, non seulement par crainte de pene, mais aussi par exhortation de preme (To do good, not only for fear of pain, but also for exhortation to premium). 1554. L
E CARON, Claire, 41b (Vaganay, Mots).» (Huguet). By the way, the ? marks in Huguet now should be eliminated in view of the convergence of the two usages of the term in question by LE CARON and NOSTRADAMUS ! Another usage in Nostradamus is found in the quatrain X-1 (§882).

Great premium to the denouncer: « A tragedy in the House of the elite: There is a high-class residence called the House on Embankment in the central district of Moscow commanding the Kremlin and the Saviour-Christ Cathedral. It is the eleven-storied building on a block of 40,000 m2 beside the Moscow River, its magnificence having been very attractive for a long time. It was built by means of the modern architecture of highest level in 1927-31 by an architect drilled in Italy Boris Iofan [1891-1976] on the initiative of Alexei Rykov in the premiership since 1924. It was properly called the Government House for the residence of the high officials of the Revolutionary Regime with the most advanced equipment... But soon this house of ‘dream’ was changed to the house of ‘tragedy’. In the second half of 1930s it was swallowed up in the midst of the wave of Great Purge under the autocratic regime of Stalin and its residents were disappearing one after another like a comb with its teeth falling rapidly. The life in the House with wonderful furniture and facilities was from the beginning under strict surveillance by the authority. At its entrances, 25 in number, were always posted the state police agents, the residents depositing them their keys when they went out, and the visitors being accompanied by them into the room. In 1932 the authority for security began to take residents away or to search within. It culminated in 1937-38. Much more than 800 named residents were identified as ‘vanished’, one third, at least, of the residents in all, of which 344 were shot. The most dreadful was the fact that the dwellers of the apartment were secretly informing against each other. At that time the secret information was recommended and it was guilty to neglect it [Great premium to the denouncer]. Anyone was condemned as ‘an anti-Soviet activity’, ‘ an enemy of the People’ or ‘a spy’.» (Endo, VI, September 30, 2017).

Beasts on the theatre, the scenic play rehearsed: « Stalin had already begun to perfect the dramaturgy of terror. Drawing on his monkish memories, he arranged party meetings to provide a well-rehearsed antiphonal dialogue between himself and his claque [the scenic play rehearsed], with Stalin suggesting moderation in dealing with ‘party enemies’ and the claque insisting on severity. Thus, reluctantly demanding the expulsion of Trotsky and Zinoviev, Stalin said he had been against this before and had been ‘cursed’ by ‘honest Bolsheviks’ for being too lenient. The claque: ‘Yes – and we still do curse you for it’. In May–July 1929 [sic][1928] Stalin staged the first of his show-trials [Beasts on the theatre], against a group of Donbass mining engineers charged with ‘sabotage’. The script was written by the
OGPU official Y.G.Yevdokimov, one of Stalin’s creatures, and featured the twelve-year-old son of one of the accused, who denounced his father and called for his execution. The actual head of OGPU, Menzhinsky, opposed this trial, as did some Politburo members. But this was the last time Stalin met genuine opposition from within the secret police or security apparatus. Towards the end of the year he ordered the shooting of the senior OGPU official Yakov Blyumkin, the first party member to be executed for an intra-party crime. Thereafter the trials went exactly as Stalin planned them, down to the last indignant crowd-scene, like some gigantic production by the Soviet cineaste Sergei Eisenstein. While the trial of the ‘Industrial Party’ was taking place the next year, the body of the court shouted, at carefully arranged intervals, ‘Death to the wreckers!’ and in the streets outside, thousands of workers marched past shouting ‘Death, death, death!’. By 1929 Stalin had the all-purpose term Stakhtyites (wreckers) for anyone he wished to destroy. As he put it, ‘Bourgeois wrecking is an indubitable sign that capitalist elements are gathering strength for new attacks on the Soviet Union.’» (Johnson, id., p.266-267).

Of the ancient fact ennobled the inventor:
« While goading on the witch-hunting and building up the paranoia and hysteria, Stalin was contriving his own apotheosis as the heir of the deified Lenin. As early as 1924-5, Yuzovka, Yuzovo and Tsaritsyn became Stalino, Stalinsky, Stalingrad; but it was the fiftieth birthday celebrations at the end of 1929 which marked the real beginning not only of Stalin’s unfettered personal rule but of the Stalin cult [ennobled the inventor] in all its nightmare maturity, with names like Stalinabad, Stalin-Aul, Staliniri, Stalinissi, Stalino, Stalinogorsk, Stalinsk, Mount Stalin, sprouting all over the Soviet Empire, and with the first appearance of Stalinist litanies: Man of Steel, the Granite Bolshevik, the Brass-hard Leninist, the Iron Soldier, the Universal Genius, a form of ruler-worship which went back to the Egyptian pharaohs [Of the ancient fact ennobled the inventor]. » (Johnson, id., p.267).

By sects the world being confused and schismatic
: « Vanished treasuries for foreign maneuvers and for pocketbooks of the heads of the government. Lenin and his regime in power through the Russian Revolution founded the Communist International (Comintern) in March 1919 as the leading centre of international communist movements and planned to export ‘Revolution’ into the European countries [By sects the world being confused and schismatic]. It was financially supported by the heritage of the Imperial Russia. The Imperial Russia was the first class country in the world in gold production, her gold reserve before the Great War having amounted to 1,311 tons. It is known to us that much gold had flowed out of Russia after the Revolution and at the first stages of Soviet Union. It was brought mainly into Sweden in secret and thence distributed to another destinations. It was called ‘gold of steam locomotives’ or ‘gold of Comintern’ according to the means of carriage and to the purpose of use. The former was for the payment of the steam locomotives Russia had ordered from Sweden, and the latter for the support to the maneuvers and campaigns of each country’s communist party joining the Comintern. Comintern obliged each member party to absolutely obey the Russian Communist Party for its promise of monetary support to the member... » (Endo, XXXIX, November 10, 2017).
