There was a problem with existence as a material manifestation of more than simply thought.To be aware of one’s self had its limitations in that a single thought might have inferred coherent action? But when it was split into two there was an immediate fractious level of disagreement and divergence. The single cell ‘world amoeba’ may have had a way of reconciling this? But after all it was bound to fail when it was defined by varying substances. Democracy just did not hack it. Thus when man as the noble savage may have abided the ‘sturm und drang’ of immediate family in the wilds civilized cooperation would always lead to unforeseen burdens and restrictions in the form of laws. The goal being to find a way to get all involved to act with common purpose as one. From that point on the immediate environment had become the biggest adversary. The tribal notion of get along with the great mystery of ‘what is’ dissolved into the ever present mentality of ‘what is possible at some future point in time’. The focus of the amalgamation of the species into a nation took away the individual rights to decide against against the judgments of the most influential. And the fiction of the majority was born along with its greatest advocate, the politician.
A larger dilemma soon appeared to this self-lauditory notion of organized society in that the larger it became the more it found rivalry with heretofore unexpected larger ones. Many of which though not initially warlike were definitely more efficiently organized and therefore innately powerful. The natural inclination to overwhelm by force of numbers so as to assimilate this foreign body needed a more subtle strategy of something called guile which was a device that acted as a cover for implementing some form of self-serving form of deceit/ This became known as diplomacy and involved the trade of women as fertile concubines that would yield family members to serve as hostages for one of the other side’s vestigial remaining notions of family loyalty. The procreation of offspring being the greatest form of reserve strength in the contemplation of imminent hostilities. And the greatest burden when resources to accommodate a progressional rate of growth was not supported by the surrounding environment. Thus Democracy’s true tyranny was born being called social welfare.
A reliable means to trim down the thinking herd and control its ability to reason then became necessary to counter this burden and came into being known by the term warfare and was thus established. The difference between the notion of overwhelming confrontation by numbers well-known in the dim formative past now became a struggle against ones own. The entities known as ‘straw men’ and ‘scapegoats’ were invented always seeming to have a permanent home within ones own general population. Animal husbandry quickly morphing into agriculture so that the designated irritants to society could be regularly weeded out as needed. The large the population the greater the ferocity of the means of extinction needed. The mere public suggestion of the possible implementation of these tools of the trade of slaughter led to the double-edged form of mental anguish called advertising and public relations. The idea being to keep the core population fearfully off balance and thus easily tractable to cooperate with strategies that would lead to their own physical destruction. The longterm effects producing and unexpected offshoot in the form of the misnomer of modern medicine. Something that rough hewn individualistic males were restrained from avoiding by security obsessed females who, as the main object of social manufacture of species, would not tolerate. Thus was born the concept of the mightily hammer of the vote. An illusory ritual where the male of the species was ever undermined by those professing feminine aspects in favor of the something called the state. An artificial mental construct that assured getting things most in return for pledging one’s future biological output as collateral in return for the guarantee of the lion’s share of resources. The mechanism passed overhead of these females to the male being something called taxes. A concept associated with a necessary stable condition commonly referred to as living death.
The onion-like complexity that evolved in the wake of all these many advancements being the source of that nagging condition called angst. a situation where an external artificial device was created to help self monitor the species on an individual basis. Considering the stratum of the various flavors of humankind and the styles of life that the unavoidable effects of unmitigatable nature provided this invention had to imagined in several forms. The phone. The movie theater. And the television screen. The first of these variants useful to females in their role as wardens of general society. The middle as a remote location where offspring could be occasionally exiled to for the mental well being of the former. And of course, the last device being useful to immobilize the most egregiously active and individualistic males in specific traps such as sofas and bar stools. The programmed material of modern broadcasting demonstrating its worth in monotonously recycling the same of fantasy of male potency in sports that featured male in adolescent play and mock slaughter. Something useful to the aims of the larger organism as previously stated.
A further means of control to restrict the restlessness of the combination of men and women had to be devised that would further inhibit unexpected outbursts desirous of escaping the proscribed patterns of society’s strictures as a whole. The orderly distribution of human beings to toil at their allotted tasks needed a static address. Thus the family home accompanied by the mortgage that was impossible to pay off until later life was instituted. The fiction of something called ownership a carrot to be held just out of reach by the overbearing burden of the state upon the hapless donkey. Something to further hobble any overly precocious male. The stress created by these artifices of the abstract referred to a normal life needing to be circumvented by a vehicle that represented escape but in fact ended up in further debilitation of choice. The modern automobile with its yearly releases managed to garner whatever future earning potential a family unit might be able to produce and recycle all their equivalent work product back into the hegemony of the overbearing state. That world germ known also as mankind.
