Default rantzen family/supporters & defenders of paedos

Background on Rantzen’s family and similarities between esther rantzen and her aunt Ada Leverson. Both had similar roles in the world of elites… A depraved society of very wealthy and so-called “cultured” and talented elites who associate with paedophiles and with secret organizations, whether it be the Crowley OTO, satanism , freemasons etc., take your pick….

Ernest Leverson

Ada Leverson

Stars In Their Eyes included Esther Rantzen as Edith Piaf

The Rantzen family's rapid social rise exposed a close family connection to the diamond magnate Barney Barnato, one of richest men of the 19th century…

Barney was therefore a seriously wealthy man. If he had been an equally serious family man, there was every chance that he would have left some of his fortune to his sister, Sarah, and her family.

Barney's will revealed that on his death he did indeed leave substantial sums of money to his sister Sarah, her husband Abraham and their children. This money would have made a huge difference to the Rantzens' lives

Rantzen is also related to Ada Leverson, the novelist who wrote "The Sphinx" and who contributed to the Yellow Book (a quarterly literary periodical). Leverson was a friend of Oscar Wilde and Ada Leverson is portrayed in the film by Zoe Wanamaker.

One of the most attractive qualities of Ada Leverson was her unswerving loyalty to her friends, among whom she counted Oscar Wilde and his circle. She met that master of paradox in 1892, and remained faithful to him, throughout his trials, imprisonment and exile. He admired her wit and encouraged her literary gifts, memorably calling her the “Sphinx.” Later, she would be regarded as the Egeria of the aesthetic movement of the eighteen nineties.

She began writing during the 1890s, as a contributor to Black and White, Punch, and The Yellow Book.

Although Ada’s wedding to Ernest Leverson, a wealthy City diamond broker twelve years her senior, took place on December 6, 1881 according to Jewish rites,…

she would attend High Mass at the fashionable Brompton Oratory with the Decadent artist Aubrey Beardsley,* and was momentarily tempted by conversion to Roman Catholicism.

Once dressed expensively by Paquin, and later always swathed in black and screened by broad-brimmed black hat, Ada …a character on the cultural scene. She died in London on August 30, 1933. Her stylish and pleasurable novels afford invaluable insights into the human comedy and the English society of her day.

Decadent artist Aubrey Beardsley

*Ada’s friend: the Decadent artist Aubrey Beardsley:
Beardsley became one of the most distinctive artists of the 1890s,. Beardsley relished subjects that played with grotesque or erotic material, and his drawings acquired a reputation for their decadence and sensuality.

Beardsley's art

In 1894 he was appointed as the art editor of the Yellow Book, a publication that showcased aesthetic writing and art; also that year his shocking illustrations to Oscar Wilde’s Salome appeared.

In the wake of Wilde’s trial in 1895, Beardsley was sacked from Yellow Book. In partnership with the publisher Leonard Smithers, many of Beardsley’s drawings became increasingly outrageous, typified by the playfully pornographic Lysistrata series and his fetishistic designs for The Sixth Satire of Juvenal, which both appeared in 1896.

And Ada’s friend, Oscar Wilde,

She was a friend of the artists and writers of her time from Oscar Wilde to the Sitwells. It was Wilde who gave her the nickname "Sphinx". This is the title of one of Oscar Wilde's poems, "The Sphinx", that Ada parodied. From then on Oscar always called her "Sphinx", and the name stuck.

Though Wilde’s orientation has variously been considered bisexual, homosexual and paederastic,

Wilde …felt inspired by the Greek Paederastic Tradition…he befriended a group of Uranian (paederastic) Poets…

Oscar Wilde was a very great friend of Ada Leverson, went to all her parties and promoted her as the wittiest woman in London and the best writer in England. Presumably he did this out of friendship, because its hard to see what there is in the Little Ottleys that would lead anyone to think there was any real merit in this book.

Like Wilde and, later, Noel Coward, Leverson was all about slyly-observed little comedies of the peccadillos of the upper classes. With a good writer this sort of subject can be very witty - the Importance of Being Earnest for example - but in the hands of a hack, like Leverson, its just plain silly and uninteresting. There is no depth to the characters so that the reader really doesn't care who is having an affair with whom if you don't care, then the book is a total time waster.

Oscar Wilde’s famous book Dorian Gray: “Underlying the plot is the theme of duality encapsulated by Dorian's unchanging public face and deterioration of his hidden portrait, but also the relationship between ethics and aesthetics and how the pursuit of pleasure leads to increasing desensitisation to evil.”

Then there is Ada’s connection to Alistair Crowley…she was one of his lovers
