Hardly! This is mostly an Ad Hominem ploy by the free market Libertarian right who do get some things right but are a bit confused about what anarchy is and how it’s incompatible with the present hierarchical capitalist system. But that’s another post although I do share some of the values of the Ancaps so I don’t view them as my enemies.
Here is a link to the new surveillance state being set up in China. I predicted this at least 20-years ago. Now I must say first that my critique here has nothing whatsoever to do with ethnicity; it could be purple people eaters doing this and I’d have the same critique! At any rate, I had one of those intuitive tacit moments about 20-years ago while I was walking through a dollar store. I simply knew that the western corporatocracy was selling out the west for enormous profits while abandoning western labor and that the Chinese State would become The New World Order–how that order eventually plays out is yet undetermined. I quipped that China would take over the world one dollar store at a time. Now please understand that the far east is a huge demographic with India and many other high-density populations; so again, this isn’t strictly about the Chinese.
Obviously, the West’s political establishment allowed this to happen and was purchased by the corporations in the previous 70-years. Schools like The Chicago School of Economics and Milton Friedman shamelessly argued for a society run by corporate greed and malfeasance and this was never practiced more efficiently than under the neoliberal order. This decimated labor in the west and destroyed one of the only means of political redress that lower classes had via labor unions. One of the shiftier gambits was to convince workers in the west to go it alone while at the same time reinforcing control over western societies business’ via concretizing the corporate model; the net effect was workers became lone wolves barely able to compete with the organized juggernaut of western corporate control.
In the far east the money was flowing like never before and the communists became capitalists in state-run plutocracy which was something I also predicted. I had mused whether the west would end up affecting China and the east or whether the west would become subsumed into the new plutocratic synthesis of state communism fused with capitalism. It’s obvious in Europe today that my predictions and concerns were warranted and came true. I’d also say N.A. suffered the same fate although what’s happened here is more subtle. Sept. 11, 2001, became the catalyst that the powers that be used to instantiate the surveillance society. How that surveillance society ends up looking and the mass profiling that goes along with it could arguably be said to be the complicit transference of technology by all the covert state actors–we see Facebook today sneaking in the same algorithms as 10’s of thousands go homeless in an unaffordable silicon valley! Incredibly skewed values. But it’s not a stretch to say that your behavior is being modified to fit the New World Corporate Order–and not in any way that could be defined as good unless one redefines the meaning!
Okay, dummies, do you get yet why I’m not a fuckin’ Marxist? Look, I don’t even like Marx as he seemed like an ass-hole from things I’ve read about him and I doubt he gave a shit about the lower classes. I’ve said many times that I view Marxism as an elite communist/capitalist psyop. Now this is obviously distinct from any genius he had in the field of economics, but Mr. Hyde was a genius, too, so being really smart in and of it self-doesn’t really mean that much–at least not to me.
I argue for an economy premised and built upon the spiritual notion and ‘cosmic truth’ of The Golden Rule and any system of economics built upon that principle need be non-coercive and non-exploitative; that is to say, that no one should be forced unnecessarily to do what they really wouldn’t rather do if they had reasonable alternatives. The solution here can really only be implemented via a universal basic income tied into a new education model while at the same time ending the usurious fiat currency system whose economics is unsustainable and leading to environmental disaster! A Golden Rule economy, by coincidence, would most likely solve our environmental predicament and would be efficient whether God existed or not. But at the very least it’s consistent and coherent with the worlds best interpretations of spirituality!
IS THERE ANYTHING RACIST ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT ALL OF HUMANITIES BASIC NEEDS ARE MET?
But, sure, yes, let’s carry on with business as usual as per our pathetic use of Darwin’s theories transferred into the field of economics.
Consider this as purely hypothetical and speculative. How much control would five-hundred million (see The Georgia Guidestones for why I’m using this number) aliens or angels have over civilization if they could take human form and be nearly impossible to distinguish from a human, and further that there could be no way for humans to find out the truth of this, or to prove it, as the only way to get to the truth of this matter would be for the aliens or angels to reveal themselves? May I answer the question for you dear reader: TOTAL CONTROL!
Oh, I hear your rightful skepticism! So consider this before you leave in cynical derision: technology is within 100-years of creating robots which could very well be indistinguishable from humans! Have any of you watched HBO’s WestWorld? In season 2, the daughter of one of the main characters shot another human prior to sexual intercourse as a test of her new lover’s authenticity of being human–that’s how much the robots looked like humans. IMPOSSIBLE YOU SAY! Really? I think not and it could very well be that day comes sooner than my predicted 100-years!
Aliens first, eh? If they’re here it would be incredible enough but being here from another planet or galaxy and also able to mimic humans to perfection are odds so astronomical that you’d never get me to bet on it–not that I’m prone to wagering. It’s just not at all likely. Now I’m not saying E. T. isn’t here, I don’t know, but they are not interacting with us in this way from all likely assessments. That leaves us with angels…
The lore of The Nephilim suggests humans are at the mercy of Watcher overlords who are quite capable of taking human form and reproducing with humanity. Interestingly enough, this was a commonly held belief at the time of Kristo’s and an overwhelming majority of people were prone to believing the Roman rulers, like all rulers, were descendants of the Gods–it may also explain why Ceaser declared himself God! A sort of conspiracy theory Occam’s Razor!
I part ways with all traditional religionists at this point because they believe wholeheartedly and naïvely that their particular religion is untainted by these Archons! Nothing could be further from the truth as far as I can tell. I also part ways suggesting these angels are wholly capable of taking female form and do so quite easily and they indeed are legion upon the earth today. To be fair in our inquiry I must explore whether God (assumed to exist under this hypothetical) is directing traffic here so to speak? I have to say, at this point, that at least, if this were true, that they are lying about who they are! That would be a fact! It behooves us to ask the question, then, if God is telling them to lie for some unknown purpose? I leave it to you dear reader to imagine why that would be…
I sit in the Gnostic camp on this issue and believe these archons are ‘natural born liars’ and not acting via God’s direction. I suggest that these archons took over civilization at the time of Babylon via control of the money supply and have ruled the earth to this day. Creating a worldwide system of money magic via an Age of Usury creating money as debt from nothing! Sheer Voodoo! See this book by, David Astle called The Babylonian Woe. BTW., I can’t seem to find one bit of information about who Mr. Astle was which is interesting in itself. Please, if anyone can provide links or info here it would be appreciated!
As a summation: I don’t believe I’ve broken any logical fallacies in this humble hypothesis and I don’t think I’ve asserted anything inherently irrational–please deconstruct if I’m wrong here although I would want proper arguments and not trolling.
Here is an earlier post on TOTAL CONTROL!
And here is a previous post on this topic.
The scope of this post isn’t adequate to cover Marxist theories on labor but in my view, they’ve been reasonably debunked, and here is one of many links I could provide.
I come at this issue from a rather idiosyncratic spiritual perspective premised on what I believe is a proper understanding of The Golden Rule. I firmly believe that Sunday Christian’s (or all theist’s) and yoga mat new agers cannot abandon the truth of this ethos when they leave a church or the mat, and from where I stand, this is exactly what most are doing. I must qualify that these ideas consider modernities rejection of religion and it’s a deconstruction I largely agree with but this rightful abandoning of religious error also threw out one of the most profound spiritual truths and this led to various distortions such as The Age of Usury and unprecedented wealth inequality.
I think I’ll start with the solutions first and backtrack from there. The solutions to the problems created by breaking the Golden Rule are of twofold: a basic minimum income must be implemented for all people so that all work is voluntary and that no one is forced or coerced to do that which they wouldn’t choose to do if they had reasonable options. I’ve repeatedly said that this needs to be coordinated with a new education model and I discuss this in my New Earth Commons. This is the only way Anarcho-Capitalism could work as it relates to a society of voluntaryism. This issue, then, within this context, could only be solved via a new way of distributing the currency supply. Second, incentivization is needed on that part of capitalist employers to not treat workers (humans) as disposable objects; this could be profit sharing, offering a small percentage of ‘buying in’ via stocks and many other devices which would be commensurate with the spirit of The Golden Rule. Also, see traditional leftist ideas like Anarcho-Syndicalism and Libertarian Socialism. But if there is a point to be made here it’s that any solutions on these issues cannot be implemented via monological totalitarianism–there need be a plurality or multiplicity of voluntary solutions but the general welfare of all people CANNOT be solved by personal philanthropy–that’s silly and sloppy thinking.
The fact of the matter is modernity reduced humans to objects of financial exploitation via the economic machine. The American Dream which was exported around the world via Hollywood was loaded with every type of snake oil sales and every manner of pornography and the latter is more than just the literal–figuratively speaking, the MIC is the largest distributors of porn in the world–death for profit! An aside here is that Hollywood has been remarkable at packaging Freud’s Eros and Thanatos as death gets fetishized for profit via media sex objects. Of course, the mode of operation for this worldwide system of KA$H (the religion of money) was mafia gone legit–the Corleone’s succeeded in taking over banks and governments.
I get this is an argument I’m not going to win as the purveyors of economic perversion are the most cunning to have ever walked the earth and unraveling their twisted machinations is most likely a task that can only be achieved by the good God’s (or God) should they/it exist. That said, I’m not likely to shut-up even if I’m only an ant among herds of stampeding elephants.
From the perspective of a proper understanding of The Golden Rule no worker or capitalist employer would find it acceptable to treat the working relationship as disposable, and of course, this is aimed more at employers who under neoliberal corporate capitalism view labor as entirely disposable and any given person employed as inconsequential especially in relation to the profit motivations of boards of directors. It’s here we’ll need to deconstruct the elites attacks upon organized labor in the past century and this attack happened from both sides of the political duopoly–so the elite left here gets no free pass. Obviously, there were the early 20th-century open attacks on organized labor that are well documented so do your own research in that regard. Nevertheless, my interests on this issue are of the more subtle attacks on labor via the neoliberal machine. This had to convince workers to volunteer to go against their own best interest. The most profuse area here and one I also fell prey to was to become an independent proprietor which today means you live a gig economy life with homelessness as your future. Did I mention Rand was an asshole? The obvious motivation of the elites here is to have labor entirely fragmented and individualized so that it cannot organize against the machine and from my position I’d say this manipulation has by far been the most successful. The duplicity in this gambit was while promoting the DIY ethic the same bad actors were extraordinarily busy consolidating the corporatocracy making sure independents can’t compete. I could explore further here but I don’t want this post to get unwieldy.
I’ll finish off by arguing with traditional religionists. Do you really think you can exploit the spirit of God in others for your personal egoic satisfactions and consider such behavior righteous? Do Christian’s, especially, believe that the crass exploitations of capitalism are consistent with the teachings of Christ? How did the church in Pentecost organize? Did capitalism exist in The Garden of Eden? Will capitalism exist in the millennial reign of Christ? Hardly…yet you insist on living by unnecessary coercion and exploitation in the here and now fuelled by a worldwide system of usury. This is a delusion! I have solved the problems in this regard in this post but I understand they will be dismissed–not my problem! We will all reap what we sow. And a note on the eastern religions: karma and reincarnation are unfounded spiritual assertions and history has proved that institutionalizing these ideas is a very bad idea! In my opinion, this has led, under neoliberalism, to a crass spiritual materialism fueled by a culture of narcissism-the very inversion of what it would mean to be spiritual! Not to mention the rise of a toxic and in error Hindu nationalism.
Just a few other points here: it’s clear the labor elite sold out under neoliberalism and that the administrative class became the pork barreller’s of the working left. Also, any previous infrastructure implemented to help injured workers, unemployed or otherwise became a cash cow for the administrators and employees of these agencies–the money pool, under the neoliberal policy, simply got diverted away from workers and given to those in charge of the programs. This is all consistent with the self-serving governments which now exist with their cynical contempt of the citizenry.
Under the new type of neoconservative neoliberalism (Trump), we now see the only concern when it comes to inflation is that labor prices become as low as humanly possible. That the prices of near everything are to the moon doesn’t seem to bother the elite as I guess they can afford the bling, but the rest of us are fucked! Oh, well…
This post assumes one would be familiar with Carl Jung’s ideas on the shadow; it especially is directed at the Integral Inc. community; whom, IMO, is not really grokking the most important aspect of the idea and process: HONESTY! Yes, I shall unpack that claim.
And now my most salient points: Integral is RELIGION and Integral Inc., as far as I can see, are not very forthright in conceding that fact. I might even add that it’s a somewhat dogmatic religion as those who question the tenets of faith are often shunned–a usual mode within dogmatism. Allow me to explain: the religion espoused in Integral Inc. is the eastern philosophy of non-duality. The fact of the matter is that non-duality is one among millions of spiritual philosophies within the history of humanities religious thought. It is in no way objectively demonstrable and like all religion is founded upon what’s called in philosophy metaphysical speculation. Generally, this religious idea denies an eternal personal creator who is transcendent to the material world and ultimately replaces that creator with humanity being able to attain God status. It should be noted that there is zero evidence in the history of religion of any person demonstrating God-like qualities–no human has ever been able to create life, etc… But the main point is that most integrals’ deny and are dishonest about what non-duality is: metaphysical speculation. I should note that within Vedic tradition are schools like Dvaita which theorize dualistic ideas about God which are more in line with how I see things as a Christian Gnostic.
The misrepresentation of science in the community is appalling. To my understanding, there is no science that has demonstrated any kind of God or teleology. In fact, quite the opposite, and in spite of that fact, Integral Inc., behaves (as a matter of everyday fact)– that science has proved spiritual metaphysics–nothing could be further from the truth as far as I can see. Again, the point is that Integral Inc. are dishonest about this and that is very poor shadow work indeed. An honest assessment of science today would only lead one to venture into the philosophy of science and speculate as theory (not fact) various ideas about metaphysics. String Theory does this although I don’t personally buy it as framed although that’s not relevant to this post. Q.M. is a thorny branch of science that in no way, as far as I can tell, demonstrates spirituality; in fact, quite the opposite. But this is the most complex area of physics and beyond the scope of this post. Now, I might add, that I subscribe to panpsychism but I hold that view as a matter of speculation and not FACT. I’m also a theist (Gnostic) and think God is completely transcendent to this hell hole we live in–yes, Elvis left the building, but, again, that is sheer personal speculation on my part. Yes, God still sends its messengers into this shitshow:D
The most problematic area of obfuscation and duplicity is in the arena of politics and economics. Integral Inc. should perhaps be known more honestly as the mouthpiece for corporate neoliberalism backed and financed by the corrupt practices of the banking cartels who are directly associated with the Cabal of certain Jews, Freemasons, Jesuits, and certain Islamists intent on ushering in a corporatized mind-controlled New World Order. Interestingly enough, it seems that it’s The Philosopher Kings of Integral Inc. who will be at the top of the pyramid within this NWO. Moreover, the concatenation of heavy Jewish backing of this movement conveniently and consistently place the Jewish people at the top of this pyramid, too, and is something not altogether surprising considering the history of Jewish supremacy (whether religious or Darwinian) and is something that shouldn’t get a free pass as far as criticism and is worthy of a deconstruction in its own right about why this continually happens millennia after millennia. I might add, as a speculation, that Integral Inc., is just as likely (given these listed obfuscations) a Trojan Horse and longterm dialectic ushering in the long dreamed of myth of the Jewish Messiah who wants to rule nation-states with an iron rod via the Noahide Laws! YIKES! The delusion is strong here as humanity could very well see this worldwide system implemented via Integral ultimately ushering in a worldwide system premised on religious delusion.
Please allow me to offer up an honest view of the Integral worldview: we believe that spirituality framed as metaphysical speculation is an integral part of any new healthy society; we concede that that view could never be monological in nature and that spirituality within this culture would be necessarily pluralistic. We concede that science in the early 21st century still confirms the materialist worldview although there are interesting hypothesis’ and theories being explored which are attempting to prove teleology and purpose–to date these are simply ideas which have not been demonstrated. We understand that the present course of first world corporate neoliberalism is unsustainable and that major overhauls are needed within the money distribution arena; a change in the view of labor transactions consistent with a coherent understanding of The Golden Rule (non-coercive and non-exploitive) which factors in the approaching ‘delaborization’ of humanity via robotics and A.I. The recognition that all humans deserve housing as a basic need fulfillment which would make Integral the leading proponents of ‘delisting’ housing from capitalist speculation; that a new education model is needed which, as its central focus, would teach every type of sustainability, and personal financial education– commensurate with notions within the study of human potential with the focus on mastery in any given field of interest, and that all attempts at such endeavors be built around the ethics of voluntarism– that is to say there would be a multiplicity of approaches to meet these necessary goals–these ideas wouldn’t become an avenue of forced totalitarianism; that all avenues of moving forward are dependent on a human being healthy and that any part of a new education would, as a central focus, be concerned with health and diet juxtaposed to ‘delisting’ healthcare from the for-profit system as it exists today in its toxic economic structure.
In fact, I explore these ideas in what I call A New Earth Commons which doesn’t have Jewish or Integral stamps of approval! YEAH!!!
The result of wealth accumulation usually attained via unmerited corrupt practices always ends in disaster for any given civilization. The unmerited aspect of this phenomenon isn’t something I’m going to get into within this post as it’s a complex and nuanced topic in its own right.
We know that trickle-down economics is a fallacy. This has been covered by so many economic theorists and proved false that I’m just not going to spend time linking all the debunking of this theory.
It’s true that there are very efficient panhandlers out there now; people like Stefan Molyneux and Alex Jones have become the epitome of the new class of human panhandlers (the 99.9999%).
This is the inevitable outcome of what I call The Age of Usury and it’s also, in part, concomitant with the devaluation of human labor by the elites. This also is a separate upcoming post so I’m not going to cover this aspect of it here. All I’ll say for now is that from my Gnostic perspective the archons are aware that work is a curse brought about by the machinations of the demiurge so there is no particular reason our rulers would value human labor when they’re quite aware of why it exists in the first place. There is also a subtle contempt between those who now make a living with their mind and those who do physical labor for a living; the latter now, under this system, via income from their labors only, get to live on the street for retirement. This is due to inflation, usury, and taxes–the death knell for workers.
Here is an article from the Guardian exploring Ten Reasons Wealth Inequality is Soaring.
I’m going to list my own views in point form which, in my opinion, are also responsible for turning most of humanity into panhandlers:
-the rise of the corporation in the past 100-years and its associated legal status which gives the corporation immunity from psychopathic behavior. Apple is a primary example of this as their products are made via the worldwide exploitation of people’s for the sole purpose of profit. The home country of Apple’s origin is simply not relevant to the corporation. Just a note here that I’m not picking on Apple per se as there are now thousands of these corporate behemoths. I should note that as corporations pursue a monological pursuit of profit combined with A.I. and technology we will only see panhandling grow exponentially.
-as the money supply gets vacuumed up by the elites it puts a stranglehold on purchasing power. In late modernity, this was ‘solved’ by the issuance of enormous amounts of consumer credit. But this mechanism doesn’t really solve the core issues and is more akin to throwing fire on gasoline.
-the oligarchs of the past century have spent enormous amounts of time and energy dissociating humanity from its relationship to the earth. This, in fact, was the primary mode of operation of the early capitalists in England a few hundred years ago. Self-sufficiency has been stymied at every point since then and no more so than the Rockefeller model of education whose primary focus was to create robots for corporations–human robots that are always disposable, but that’s another topic, too.
-fiat currency and fractional reserve lending are the primary bad actors in turning humanity into panhandlers; although, if I’m correct, the fiat currency masters are trying to use crypto-currency as a method to solve the sustainability and inequality issues brought on by their earlier mechanisms. At this point, this new mechanism is the primary driver of what could be called a ‘new age of panhandling‘.
-governments purchased by corporate elites whose politicians have abandoned every metric of decency and honesty to use government as a sole means to satisfy their own whims and desires while fulfilling the agendas of the financial and corporate élite. This has stymied any possible attempts at redress for members of society and the contempt the political class now has for its constituents is consistent with a new culture of panhandling which they are enabling. Of course, this is very much linked to the central bank model.
www.andrewmarkmusic.com suggests this new mode of being has been ushered in by what I call The Unholy Trinity…
Just an end note: if a worldwide culture of panhandling is inevitable, and I believe it is under all the current trajectories, then I suggest that the primary focus should be a fair means of distributing the reward pool of the earth, its resources, and various intelligences. www.postivemoney.org is a step in the right direction.
