The very publicly loud documentation of what is advanced as the destruction of Western civilization through the internal dissolution of its various collective cultural nationalities goes one non-stop. Those within unable to properly assess the veracity of the claims beyond the fact of their own immediate experience encircling them by line of sight. The apparent growing rift in human relations on all levels being interdicted by institutionally manifest government apparatus in both a passive occasionally aggressive manner. The entertainment media now finally come out of the closet revealing itself as simply an engine tasked with producing fear and paranoia useful for maintaining that divide if not exploiting it. The schools and universities rife with cadres of instructors substituting basic education with Marxist doctrines to those ranging from the most formative ages up to young adulthood. The notion of mankind being unique and intellectually fruitful now demeaned to a simple role as an easily replaceable cog caught in the anonymity of a vast Worldwide machine whose only role is to expand its influence as it consumes the planet’s resources. Any sense of human emotion being dissolved by all these agendas. One has to wonder about what it must have been like in age old empire of the ancient past?
One consistent fact at the forefront of the history of civilization in its many subsequent manifestations over the centuries is the absolute necessity to indenture vast populations to ensure the comfort and material advancement of a more dominant well-connected cabal of others. Every tribe has had a hierarchy that has demanded subservience from its membership. The terminology has changed over time using functionally equivalent terms like ‘responsibility’, ‘due’, ‘owe’, ‘patriotism’, ‘indenture’ and ‘slavery’. The means of enforcement being to centralize a majority of resources under direct control of those ‘at the top’ who have always doled them out in a tightly controlled fashion. The method and means of the same being limited to ‘just enough’ rather than steadily bountiful. The best of times seeing a consecutive ‘task’ and ‘reward’ philosophy behind any bounty. The notion of the common citizen reaching full parity with the elite at the top a matter of the dissemination of construct fantasy, studied rhetoric, and art. The greater dependence that the members of that society demonstrate in terms of self-reliance, the steeper the pyramidal distribution of power becomes and the larger and more repressive the organization of the culture becomes.
The most significant difference of the current era being that for the first time in recorded history and elite can create and deploy mechanical devices to replace the need for human interlocutors to enforce the basic tasks of conducting an empire. Robots and sensing devices that are autonomous in their ability to flawlessly repeat droll tasks of collection of resources both physical and informational as well as punitive. The underlying motivator of being a human being caught up in such a Draconian structure is an engagement in a well-administered fantasy world that offers endless trivial diversions to compensate for the reigning in of animal desires and the dissolution of free will through mounting independent action. The ideal implementation of this being to instill a self-monitoring form of internal repression in every member of society so that as basic sense of daily renewable fear can be maintained to motivate society in the collective sense to respond the ‘proper’ way without hesitation. The ‘military mode’ of harsh physical discipline replaced in this current era through personal devices projecting effortless virtual cos-play where the individuals are encouraged to adapt to specific roles enhanced by mentally planted abstraction. Some classic intermediate mechanisms being film, television, and personal electronic devices. All of them tasked to convey both conscious seemingly voluntary invocations along with subconscious commands. The next step in ‘civilization’ being the creation of a tightly controlled seemingly inclusive environment that incarcerates its population within a ownership free zone of constant innocuous regimentation under the guise of fulfilling all possible needs. Slaves that enslave themselves by fully embracing a world promising the seamless fulfillment of all their dumbed down animal desires.
It may seem hard to image a more banal existence for anyone who treasures a sense of personal uniqueness not derived from above but rather from within. That is why the true battle for the indenture of humanity as a whole has become an internal everyday war for the individual human psyche. The need to perfectly align all from cradle to grave in a manner that exploits the animal imperatives and confounds the intellect. The application of the accumulated knowledge of all the behavioral sciences wrung from the misery of the last two centuries refined and focused upon each living organism in the sense of production techniques of a modern corporate farm where only a conveyor belt mentality exists. The mitigating factor for self-acceptance being an ever flickering hope to escape a mentality of victim-hood. Both of these traits constantly refreshed by the allied mechanisms of the overbearing state. The eventual removal of the ownership of material goods and the possession of mechanical implements for the everyday use in advancing individual initiatives and personal protection being supplanted by an innocuous mass environment where everything is equally shared with no distinctions made. The ultimate role model ceaselessly advanced being that of a ‘happy cog’. The population within being self-administering of their own taking up many of the functions that relieve the state of any major task beyond maintaining consistency and gauging the amount of stimulation to be applied overall. The classic crook and flail of ancient Egyptian Pharaohs having been evolved to an AI driven model of a totally opaque technological platform of phantom manipulation of the realm of each human mind.
To those that chaff within the bonds of financial manacles and the electric massage of social dog collars comes that fatal choice of going back into their present state of coma or risking an acceptance of their plight. The onslaught of a civilization that grows by ruthlessly destroys any possibility of independent differences and rewards conformity can only be stopped by its collapse. The solution of the individual to this slavery being a form of suicide in cutting their bonds with universal consensus no matter what the cost. Its alternative being to embrace an active sense of philosophically absent animal masochism. The greatest danger to the unilateral state being a choice between this mass self-necrosis or its own eventual slowing to a halt by the fact of Negentropy. What seems like old familiar refuges of the past in innocent unfettered romance or the excelling in both competitive business and solipsistic athletic prowess now seen a mist of previous propaganda. The individual imperative to survive only for the sake of one’s self alone tentatively embracing only those that enhance this proposition being the only valid final motive behind human existence. The present telling of that age old fable of a Garden of Eden and the subsequent fall of the ancestors of humanity from grace being nothing more than a slave tale. It’s alternate phrasing in the duality of human nature fully exposed in the saga of Gilgamesh more in keeping witht he current situation. It will be interesting to see if this long slow steady march of organized humanity to a fatal cliff’s edge will possible slow and finally come to a halt before reaching the brink?
