The Truth of the ‘Class System’
The births of the ‘Mega Cities’, where only those that support ‘progress’ and the psychology of Elitism will be allowed to live…the writing on the wall has been here for decades, now we are getting to see the extreme versions of what was being informed about.
This has been happening to the poor for decades, but because they are predominantly looked down upon (conditioned to not be paid attention to or be like), and have been predominantly ‘minorities’, it was ignored…now the ‘middle class’ (who have mostly been a major accident or paycheck or two away from being on the streets themselves) are getting to see what all the fuss was about.
But there are still those in the ‘middle and upper classes’ that are living in really nice homes and areas, and getting to experience ‘the finer things in life’ that count themselves lucky and privileged in this system of exploitation of desperation, deception from seeing and feeling the intimacy of the larger picture of life, and the destruction of the natural world and community.
So they perpetuate this all, while luxuriating in and supporting this system that will eventually lay waste to their lives and spit them out to be trampled over like all the other fodder it disposes of, if they are not able to keep up with the frantic pace of willful ignorance and willingly do whatever it takes to keep climbing that stairwell to the skyscraper heaven they have been promised…or at least earning a higher level of servitude and experience of existence within that skyscraper.
None of this is by mistake, the Architects of the Future know the patterning of society, plan for it, shape it, influence it constantly. This is why coming to see it for what it is…a lie, a phantasmagorical fantasy… and rescinding one’s investment of energy in it; has been the message of the poor that have lived under the weight of it, the fringe or counter-culture that have awoken from it, the ‘fallen ones’ that have been to it’s heights and came crashing down.
12–23–18: And actually the message from the very Architects…
Friend Suzanne McDonald found a good historical writing that gives an ‘in their own words’ reflection of the psychology that has largely progressed our society…when you hear someone say ‘this is by design’ in relation to poverty and the overall disparity and despotism of our society, they aren’t kidding or lying. Here is an essential excerpt from the over 500 page document:
“…every state is supported by the poverty of the community of the body politic. Without a large proportion of poverty there could be no riches in any country; since riches are the offspring of labour, which can result only from a state of poverty.
Poverty is that state and condition in society where the individual has no surplus value in store or, in other words, no property or means of subsistence but what is derived from the constant exercise of industry in the various occupations of life. Poverty is therefore a most necessary and indispensable ingredient in society without which nations and communities could not exist in a state of civilization, it is the lot of man. It is the source of wealth, since without poverty there could be no labour; there could be no riches, no refinement, no comfort, and no benefit to those who may be possessed of wealth, inasmuch as without a large proportion of poverty, surplus value could never be rendered productive in procuring either the conveniences or luxuries of life.”
Ever see the movie Cosmopolis? It reflects the psychology and rationales involved with this system of Elitism and the separatist viewpoint of life. The sound is really low, so if you are wearing headphones and turn it up, be sure to turn the volume back down so you don’t hurt your ears next time you listen to something. :)

There is also the movie ‘Branded’, which came out around the same time, and I recommend both often.
Branded (2012) trailer
Movies and TV shows of these kind of societal and future projections these days, take a growing social awareness and present it in a manner that seems ‘enlightening’, to support ‘waking up’, but it twists the social messaging (whether intentional or not) into more of a fear ridden warning against such thought and questioning, but also offers a combative solution to provide cathartic release and/or spur a violent revolution…which is playing right into the separatist warring psychology, a reaction that is specifically designed and planned for.
If mature and conscious resistance cannot be subverted through fear and desire, then it is diverted into anger, all of which clouds the mind and motivates superficial and reactionary states.
The following is translated from French, so his statements were philosophical suppositions I take it, and not actual propositional philosophy. The way it is stated in the translation is not clear on that, but looking into him personally, it would seem he was informing of what he saw (as I have seen) that Hitler was a major learning lesson for the separatist Elitist mindset, and in the experiment or movement of the fascist psychology operating through Man.
And the movement was to be more covert and deceptive than overt and oppressive…until society had been subverted and manipulated enough…like it has been today.
“To stifle any revolt in advance, we must not take it violent. The methods of Hitler’s kind are outdated. Just create a collective packaging so powerful that the very idea of revolt will not even come to the mind of men.
The ideal would be to format individuals from birth by limiting their innate biological abilities. Then we would continue the packaging by drastically reducing education, to bring it back to a form of vocational integration. An uneducated individual has only a limited horizon of thought and the more his thought is confined to poor concerns, the less he can revolt. We must ensure that access to knowledge becomes increasingly difficult and elitist. That the gap is widening between the people and science, that information intended for the general public is anesthetized from any subversive content.
Especially no philosophy. Here again, it is necessary to use persuasion and not direct violence: it will be widely broadcast, via Television, entertaining entertainment that is always emotional or instinctive. We’ll occupy the spirits with what’s futile and playful. It is good, in a chatter and incessant music, to prevent the spirit of thinking. We’ll put sexuality at the top of human interests. As a social tranquilizer, there’s nothing better.
In General, it will be possible to banish the seriousness of existence, to make a mockery of everything that has a high value, to maintain a constant glorification of lightness; so that the euphoria of advertising becomes the standard of human happiness and the model of freedom. The Packaging will thus produce such integration, that the only fear — which will have to be maintained — will be that of being excluded from the system and therefore not to be able to access the conditions necessary for happiness.
The mass man, so produced, must be treated as what he is: a calf, and he must be monitored as must be a herd. All that makes it possible to sleep with his lucidity is good socially, which would threaten to awaken him must be ridiculed, stifled, fought. Any doctrine involving the system must first be designated as subversive and terrorist and those who support it must then be treated as such.”
Günther Anders, “human obsolescence”, 1956
Not the page where the quote comes from, but information on the author: http://www.history.ucsb.edu/faculty/marcuse/anders.htm The Architects project the image of ‘savagery’ at the bottom, that if the system ever breaks down or is abandoned, then there will be chaos and ruin…that we will not know how to take care of one another and would just tear each other apart without their Rule(s)…but it is the attachment to and dependency on that system that creates the true savagery. Ever see the movie ‘High-Rise’?

The above writing was a comment reply to this article a friend posted:
The Number Of Americans Living In Their Vehicles “Explodes” As The Middle Class Continues To Disappear
More Americans are falling out of the middle class and into poverty with each passing day, and this is one of the big reasons why the number of homeless is surging.
We live at a time when the cost of living is soaring but our paychecks are not. Health care costs rise much faster than the rate of inflation every year, food prices are becoming incredibly ridiculous, and the cost of a college education is off the charts. According to author Alissa Quart, living a middle class life is “30% more expensive” than it was two decades ago…
It is time to admit that we have a problem. The number of homeless in this country is surging, and we need to start coming up with some better solutions. But instead, many communities are simply passing laws that make it illegal for people to sleep in their vehicles…
(end of excerpts)
Do away with ‘classes’, labels of all kinds…see the inherent dysfunctionality of compartmentalizing Life and one another…there is no separation. What happens to one, happens to all…and will eventually exact its price, no matter how long it takes, or how far the human race tries to outrun this inevitability. Those participating, perpetuating, and pioneering this system today are just banking on that price not be exacted on them while they are still here…I would say ‘alive’, but there is something fundamentally dead within that they are not truly living…something that is calling within the intimacy of their Being…that is the source of Life and all our true wellness.
May the pain and suffering that is being created from the collective ignorance, anxiety, arrogance…fear…be a pointing to the true refuge of the Heart and revealing of our Humanity…a refuge that is being sought through the material world, to only have it fall in upon us all, because it lacks what truly sustains us: Love. _/|\_ ❤
“When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force. Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it. Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others. Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals. For love we live and die. Love is God and God is Love.
This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.”
~ Albert Einstein

You can see all the more reason why he was killed. If this movement would have been allowed to grow at that time…the Corporate Globalization that we have now would most likely not be happening.
This is why it is time to get clear on what societal system has been largely being supported by our continued involvement in believing the lies of Corporate mass media and ignoring the larger picture of how the current governmental model is beyond corrupt.
The societal model of ‘economic growth and unchecked technological advancement’, that supposedly what is good for business and the economy is good for all…have we not seen how this is not so?
Martin Luther King, Jr. on Worldwide Fellowship
April 4, 1967
Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies. This call for a worldwide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, class, and nation is in reality a call for an all-embracing and unconditional love for all mankind…
When I speak of love I am not speaking of some sentimental and weak response. I am not speaking of that force which is just emotional bosh. I am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality.
This Hindu-Muslim-Christian-Jewish-Buddhist belief about ultimate reality is beautifully summed up in the first epistle of Saint John:
“Let us love one another, for love is God.”
MLK Jr. ‘Beyond Vietnam — A Time to Break Silence’
And as I see it, this recognition of Love being the unifying force of existence cannot stay at the level of belief, it must come to the point of direct realization within one’s being before any substantial change can come about. May it Be… _/|\_ ❤
(8–12–18: a major addition today: )
Better get to it before robots and AI take over most the work. ;)
But really, I know this sounds good in theory, and I seriously contemplated a worker’s strike in Portland, OR back in ’96, and from that contemplation saw how many it would take and all the resources that would be needed to make it happen…all the codependency on money (credit)/energy/corporations (banks)/computers that had already been enmeshed in society, and how the simple threatening of rescinding credit or access to energy by this separatist elitist power structure, and/or some legal doublespeak about what threatens the economy threatens America and is a ‘terrorist act’…plus all the variables of social insecurity (peer pressure) throughout society restricting what one with resources may be willing to do to help…are major deterrents to action, and reveals how it’s just not feasible, and why it hasn’t been happening by and large…and why it is still being said.
I agree that if one recognizes the self destructive and exploitative system that has been created, and that most have been complicit in and perpetuating it for decades, and feels that it is time to change this, there can be a decision to no longer be involved in it as much as possible…not to leverage for supposed better working conditions and wages within that self destructive system…but merely to weaken that system, withdraw power, either vastly or gradually, to redirect the energy to another potentiality born of mutuality.
Money to survive = certain suffering and death…the dying off of our collective humanity and eventual (seemingly sooner than later) physical demise as a species.
Adding another Note that relates:
What Is the Value of ‘Money’?
Okay now, this is a short (15 mins) and reflective piece on and insight into the ‘Elite society’ mindset…I HIGHLY recommend watching this and getting intimately familiar with this, because this is the mindset that is predominantly at the helm of the direction of our societal progression, and one that is to be faced if there is any interest in being able to see more clearly through the popular deceptive media narratives about life and shifting that direction.
The Real Wealth Gap
If the bottom line remains ‘my/our survival’ physically, then fear and the disrespectful and violent ‘whatever it takes’ mentality rules and our humanity is sacrificed. This psychology and social dynamic is largely getting projected through most ‘entertainment’ and media these days. But there can be a ‘whatever it takes’ feeling that is not motivated by fear ridden impulses for physical survival.
As I see it, what it is coming down to is a revealing of what this fixation on identification with the physical experience (desire/fear) of life has gotten us, and how it has blinded us to our deeper intuitiveness of life beyond the physical…that intuitiveness that connects all of Life, and naturally cares for it, and works for its mutual health and well being.
We are being offered the opportunity to realize our true Humanity through the relinquishing of the attachment to all the materiality, to the physical experience as primary reality and the supposed source of our happiness and well being, and coming to realize what is already Whole within us and without fear of ‘what comes next’…and, seemingly paradoxically, this realization is the power of consciousness to face all the physical experiences that keep the human race imprisoned to concepts that perpetuate our collective suffering and self destruction in the world…and opens us to an immeasurable capacity for love and pro-creation.
To continue to ‘fight the system’, or be a mutually respected member within it, is only perpetuating it and the suffering inherent in it. It’s like staying in an abusive relationship and believing the abusive partner/parent can be ‘saved’ by caring for it, thinking we can ‘fix them’….but what is required is a true and honest love that is able to say, “No, I will no longer participate in and perpetuate such abuse.”.
And this is done not in anger and hatred, but truly from love for the humanness within ‘self’ and the ‘partner/parent’ (those involved with and at the top levels of this system), to help them face the darkness they have perpetuated, to bear their own suffering and take responsibility for it, instead of spreading it.
There is much to the energy and psychology of this all, but as I see it, whatever actions are born of fear will only perpetuate fearful conditions. The realization of our true Essence of being that does not fear, and for our Humanness to have the willingness to honor and trust in this Essence, to live as and for this Essence, is the only true rectification of the state of the world…whether or not we survive as a species. Regardless, our true Spirit, our true Wealth, our Humanity will have been reclaimed.
