How detailed an analysis do we want?
I have to say that as an avid conspiracy theorist I’m getting a little tired of reading and hearing about this or that group of secretive elitists being the reason we are facing the precarious predicament of modernity. It’s true that these elitists have gamed a system that always will favor those with the dosh to do so. It is also true that these elitists have started conflagrations that have cost countless lives and inflicted suffering onto millions. But the people who actually do the gaming, torturing, and killing, are people drawn from the ranks of….us!
We are enlisted into this nightmare scenario because we are fucked in the head from a corrupted education system that blinds us to the fundamental pitfalls of centralized control by individuals who we don’t know who represent interests we can’t readily see. If at all.
Because we have become so dependent on our system that has removed us from our ability to live independently from it we are driven by the acquisition of enough assets through slavish adherence to the fiat, debt-based monetary system to not feel at a disadvantage in it’s all encompassing embrace.
This system favors those who have seen this situation early and have felt comfortable working within it’s suffocating confines. Suffocating for me because our system of existence seems to have exploitation as its core mechanism for making it work.
I mean to say that war would have to be the ultimate form of exploitation yet we think there is a good and a bad side to a war when it’s just a horror show, up close and personal for those in the theater of battle.
How do we change it? I guess by building the bonds within a community and the resources it can provide if we can co-operate rather that gather under banners and party streamers jeering at the opposition who we have to live and work with. The two Party system causes division where there should be none. We cluster around ‘identity’ politics and politicians who encourage us to hate the opposition. This is so counter-productive to having a fully functioning democracy because it means that nearly half of the country’s population will feel they are being ruled by a political enemy.
People will protest that they don’t think in such terms but unfortunately people don’t know themselves very well when it comes to the herd mentality and political doctrine. Especially in times of economic downturn. This pitches us against elements within our own communities and therefore we tend not see the manipulations of the elites who set these trains of events into motion.
The elite rely on our inculcated flaws in character to advance their agenda of total control of the majority to impose the hegemony of the Babylonian Bankster/Priests!
I guess I’ll be pretty good at drawing these characters by the time March 2017 rolls around!
