Wizard of Oz analysis - part 8: The Good Witch's wand helps locate New Jerusalem


Above left and right: The star at the end of the Good Witch's wand is, in this closeup from the scene in Munchkinland, right next to Dorothy's new slippers. The continuous line of jewels between points 1 and 2 on the star suggests that a line is to be drawn between the two points.

Above left: Referring to the above map of North America while simultaneously drawing our lines on the wand's surface, it must be the case that other clues in The Wizard of Oz indicate that lines are to be drawn between 3 (Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii) and 4 (Jamestown, Virginia), and between 5 (Independence, Missouri) and 6 (central Mexico).[a] Above right: Finally, the line from 1 to 2 is to be moved to position 1' (near Palmer, Alaska) - 2' (near Cap-Haïtien, Haiti), yielding the intersection of all three lines, as shown on the map. Note that the lines drawn on the wand are parallel to their respective lines on the map. The makers of The Wizard of Oz were giving audiences clues as to exactly where it is that certain real-life evil conspiratorial parties (evil elite hermaphroditic Jews, certain high-ranking Mormons and Freemasons, highly placed radical feminists, certain Mennonites, the members of certain groups of North American native peoples, and possibly Rosicrucians and other parties), plan to locate the 'evil kingdom' mentioned earlier, i.e., their New Jerusalem, promised land, or whatever one wishes to call it - essentially, a utopia. On the map of North America, the lines appear to intersect in the state of Texas, but this is only because they are drawn on a flat map.[b] When drawn on a globe, the intersection is found to lie near Milltown, Indiana (see Google map here for precise location). This is the actual current planned location for the utopia, that the evil conspiratorial parties are seeking to establish and inhabit.

a. The specific locations of the endpoints of these lines and their point of intersection, as given above, have been obtained from part 7 of the James Michener analysis on this blog.
