PREFACE: So many decades have past down life’s roadway. So many experiences piled up so high that they can only flow off into the darkness of fading memory. Persistent ones that fit poorly together and suggest some ability to fit together a coherent path forward to the end. The only semblance of a usable road map noticed being ill-conceived emotions rather than employing the rationality of one’s head. Each end result not bearing much promise.The other side of the mountain leading only to the abyss. Definitely not promising.
It is increasingly impossible not to notice the theft of the responsibility of parenting by the nuclear family routinely handed over to the totalitarian state. This as with the main impetus of the introduction and implementation of stilted doctrine of overarching Feminism and newly cogitated gender lifestyle ‘rights’. Women as a collective unit providing too easy a target of the barbs of propaganda based Hollywood sentimentalism for example. These efforts revealed as naught but Socialist dogmas implanted soundly within a modern agnostic epistemology of radical Judaism that defines society strictly in Marxist terms through a narrowed lens in the exercise of power.
A notion that was brought into focus for me personally by one Roger Scruton, philosopher, whose elucidation of topic of Human nature defines it within the context of bargains both implicit and explicit that occur with society. The notion of society being able to demand sacrifice as a demonstration of ones piety in a classic sense expected altruism.
The Socialist/Liberal mentality of persisting in identifying themselves as being a righteous victim where the victim makes the demand for material reparations from the collective society on account of their professional victim hood illustrating the point that this is a flawed process that has been tampered with. The archetype of the Jew as victimized people through history being a perfect example very much currently in force where those within that self-righteously feel repeatedly victimized and feel further that any rule from above is null and void if it interferes with them being able to protect themselves from becoming victims yet gain. This is the essence behind the doctrine of Feminism in terms of power alone as defined by Marx or lack of same. The covert mantra of “By any means necessary!” covertly added outside the public view to the very explicit demand of “To each according to their need from each according to their ability.” assuring the goal of an equality of outcome.
If in the sense of a total realization of a Utopian ideal this leaves one void of the possibility of passion or the satisfaction of animal desires then that is the price paid by any true believer. That being a [Chapter 2?] experience as detailed in the Gulag Archipelago where the party oriented mother taken into custody by the State Security Cheka is willing to face the total rejection of her children who have given her an ultimatum to tell them if she is guilty or not of betraying the party. For the sake of preserving the ideal of belief of her children in the party over her as an ultimate sacrifice to it she tells her children to hate her. This is the most desired state of consciousness that is to be bestowed upon all of those outside of the chosen elite.
My own continued self-exploration in the context as an American citizen that is typical in a rough sense of others from my era leads me to the question of origins. My immediate family presently no longer alive and my own existence challenged by a routine removal from active employment by a corporate directed hegemony based upon my age group in terms of classified as ‘retired’. The problem that looms large is one of place and where I fit in a functional sense in current society, if at all? Privately speaking my own identity is still intact as I have had to define it as separate in terms of worth. It does lead me to ask questions as to my own genealogy in the specific sense. If my character is constructed in an evolutionary sense of the successful encounters of my forebears then it would be useful to be aware of that narrative and see how it compares with that of my own. Perhaps in the sense of analysis for the sake of improving my chances of survival being able to detect a chronic outlook or sense of behavior that might be a chronic affliction of ‘me’ and my kind?
Being raised in the official but decidedly fictional realm of the ‘melting pot’ theory of American identity (AKA Horatio Alger) where one was expected to be self-reliant and ‘pull themselves up by the bootstraps’ I feel disoriented in the current era’s identification with institutionally imposed safety nets. My own forebears on both sides of my immediate family I was told came from middle Europe though from areas that had a different cultural ethos. My father’s clan from what was hinted at as a peasant rural Polish mentality and my mother’s side from German influenced Czech middle class. These detail sketchy and essentially un-trackable past that. This makes me take up a line of thought that postulates something of note that the notion of group identity in the USA as a legacy and the current Marxist Socialist contemporary viewpoint share the demand that all those who belong to its tribe must forego any past associations with family based legacy identities beyond that which identifies them as part of a racial category and characteristics that classify long term beliefs.
For example: “My forebears were originally from middle Europe” “One side being non-aligned Christians, the others side possibly Catholic or equally Jewish.” This in the current sense of government administration of demographics and resources means that I must fill out WHITE and CHRISTIAN. If I am descended from a (crypto) Jew then perhaps for various reasons, AGNOSTIC. My point being that I suspect that this paucity of information is not accidental. And though it most assuredly was a result of decisions made by my kin they were in their formative eras motivated by an implied peer pressure to behave in that way. Surrender your connection to the past to be considered properly part of the tribe of the population of the USA. Though clearly this is no longer immediately so as far as he present is concerned in terms of the ruling structure accommodating undocumented immigrants ‘en masse’ and not compelling them to surrender their ties to former lands and the clans still residing there, it does seem curious that my group has been earmarked for being discarded or at the very least very demonstratively diminished.
In the sense of myth and longstanding stories as one finds in the first chapters of the Old Testament (Pentateuch) the role that those of my ilk as far as ethnicity and past social orientation is concerned have an ironic link in terms of being officially designated as evil? Granted Socialism claims to be atheistic yet its foundations are equally traceable to the same starting point in the Pentateuch but identifying with different avatars. My generation though it was definitely Post Nietzsche still having the invocation to pattern itself after the messiah of the New Testament. The Socialist model in the equivalent sense presenting Satan as a replacement. Outward focused civil society based upon belief versus obeying the overlap of official declaration of evidence based on the officially sanctified findings Science and Technology. The experience of Adam and his consort Eve being prey to fatal knowledge leading to their realization of their vulnerability (Jordan Peterson) due to a third figure in society of a longer tenure enlightening them being revived in functional metaphor. My group playing the role of the ‘snake’. The inference being that traditional knowledge is tainted by the group that I am designated by those who have restructured general society to a Cultural Marxist motif.
How ironic that an ‘ism’ that is dependent on enforcing radical change and abandon any awareness of general history to secure its membership to build its Utopia? Or rather to re-admit the latest crop of Adam and Eve’s back into the fantasy realm of archetype of a previous Utopia. Could this also be significant of a phenomena that repeats itself over time in the long throw of history where the threat of extinction by universal chaos unleashed by the ‘shadow’ of mankind demands a shared fantasy of safety in a singular shared fantasy of the enforcement of the state stepping in to relieve all from responsibility and provide philosophical day care? To follow along in that path of reason how can this be surprising a mental perspective when the formative experience of the last several generations has been with day care and parental ‘work release’? The Orwellian notion of “Ignorance is Strength” come into play as an unconscious mantra on the way to the officially sanctioned ‘safe space’. Since American society has in so many ways has a collective legacy as a work camp for successive sets of immigrants one has to wonder if in fact Socialism joins the other ‘ism’ in simply being a tool in the tool set of a longstanding very adroit hegemony used to dealing with humanity in all its forms over the centuries and perhaps millennium’s?
