Quo Vadis Mammon?

September 3, 2007

The Chestnuts of my third manuscript which I am about to self-publish …. keep coming back to see the announcement of it becoming available in book-form! 

 

 “Here is no fanaticism, there is no preaching, there is no need for believing”. (Friedrich Nietzsche, Ecce Homo, cf. footnmote# 16, p. 10)  

 

6                         Quo Vadis Humanitas?

 We all pretend to be worried about where we are going, but do not make any real attempt to find out where we have come from.  Religions, politics and science ostensibly are “in the know” and they tell us their versions of the “thruth”.  Just as uncertain as the beginnings is the future ending. Be it a biblical Armageddon on earth or “Hell” in the next life, a “Clash of Civilisations” or a cataclysm of environmental (or even cosmic) nature- they all keep mankind in fear of the “future”.  When we look more carefully, the “future” has been “privatised” and seems to refer only to the remaining individual life span (or term of office for “appointed” people).   Language has been “privatised” as well – for instance: nobody may tell the truth about the genocidal actions of Israel, but anybody may tell whatever (derogatory) lie about Muslims or publish provocative “cartoons”..    

24                        World views

 As with all aspects of our existence,  we are in dire need of an overhaul of our “World View”.  It is difficult to still pretend that “all is fine”, when we see how international relations become a plaything of the hubris of one nation, how industry progresses from one into the next catastrophe, how “goodness” is preached from the pulpit or in the class room while the Media swamps us with info-tainment which has as its main ingredients the outcomes of crime and violence and our entertainment is largely concerned with depicting in gruesome detail the various ways in which all of this comes to be. We take a coroners view of the presently held World View and realise, that we are dealing largely with a morgue of concepts which have since long been declared dead.  

45                        From Anselm to Gödel – a Millennium of Mental Contortionism

 We explore the graveyard of intellectual corpses that Academia represents only to find that their thinking is still very much with us – in fact they control our presence and are shaping our future.  The better parts of the Second Millennium of man’s recorded history were spent in persuit of the most elusive of concepts – truth.  To our surprise we see that science apparently is an enterprise which first attempts to find “the truth” only to then go on to bury it still deeper under terminology and ill defined concepts.    

66                        The Science of Crises and Catastrophes

 The history of mankind appears to be a (we can only hope: infinite) string of crises and catastrophes. When we trace catastrophes back to when they were “only” crises we find that they- in turn- were little more than (the misunderstood) outcomes of (intially already flawed) concepts.  As there is little point in shutting the gate to the paddock after the horses have bolted, we have to do our utmost to use all means at our disposal to examine concepts with regards to their systemic viability before we implement them.   

81                        Religions and Catastrophes – how do they relate?

 A whirlwind survey of the history of religions shows them to be either directly causally related to catastrophes that have befallen mankind or have caused unspeakable tragedies for humanity.  All of this has great relevance for the present and future of mankind.  The New Millennium has seen the emergence of two new “Religions” – Holocaust-ism and Global-ism.  Both are based on apodictic dogma and the fanatical proponents of these money-theistic religions postulate that one “is either with them or against them”.  What will be the catastrophe(s) caused by these new religions?  

90                        Academic Freedom and Ethics

 As long as academia is “free”, scientists will continue to create power from knowledge. The public spends vast sums of money for the search of novelty;  when we look at the outcome  of this effort over the last century, then what we hail as “progress” has largely only caused misery. The world would now be a better place, had mankind not been able to “split the atom”. The signs mount, that the world will be a better place if the irresponsible “splicing of genes” will be stopped.  While nuclear physics has the potential of stopping humanity with a “bang”, genetical engineering will quite possibly end it with a “whimper”, when we all starve to death because of runaway hybridisation of plants and animals.  If we continue to turn fields and stables into “slot machines” an ever growing mankind will run out of “nickles” and thus prove the Reverend Malthus correct – after all.  

121                         Culture  &  Technology    how do they relate?

 Old myths became structured into religions and science: both are driven by strict dogma, that may be questioned only at the risk of being labelled as either a heretic or a pseudo-scientist.  Religion and science are major pillors of culture, out of which technology emerges.  Any “transfer of technology” brings with it the culture (and hidden in it, often driven by it, also the religion) it is based upon.  When technology without (its) culture is desired, then this presupposes not only an in depth knowledge of (its) culture, but also of (its) religion. That this sine qua non is not recognised lets demagogues call for a “clash of cultures” while they peddle their technologies.  

141                        Towards a New Social Science

 Social Science is manically pursuing the dream of becoming a “hard” science and thus uses the tools of the Natural Sciences.  Methodology seemingly has replaced understanding.  This is why cultures are reduced to “things” and people are viewed as “numbers”.  The abstractions required to apply mathematics pose the danger of abstracting humanity out of mankind.  Only when man comes to terms with the awful reality that life is lethal, will Social Science be directed towards the betterment of the “is” rather than trying to apply untested concepts to force a better “will be”. Those who (often only pretend to) “know” what is “good” have to be recognised as the systemic danger they pose.  

161                        Privatisation of Public Utilities

 In the present age of Privatisation we are told that Public Utilities have to be operated not by the states but by entrepreneurial busines in order to be profitable.  This flies in the face of the fact, that a service is something which has to be paid for – how can a public utility (service) be profitable?  If the state does not want to provide the “engine of prosperity”, then why have a state? Once “privatised”, Public Utilities quickly are taken over by transnational corporations and reverse the originally intended service to the public by making utilities unaffordable for many. We are prevented from realising what is really going on by the “Privatisation of Truth”, which carries with it the price of the Future of the World being privatised as well. 

175                        Big Oil,  the War on Drugs and Terrorism

 The New Millennium is a nightmare of poorly understood concepts:  while elites wallop in orgiastic drug induced stupor, the masses are addicted to menomic and physical drugs and thus blinded to reality.  The 1973 war in the Middle East hiked oil prices sufficiently to make exploitation of the oil in the North Sea viable. Three decades later renewed fighting there may well result in the oil price being elevated sufficiently to turn the vast oil resources of the Argentine-Falklands shelf into a viable business proposition. By calling oil a “non renewable” resource absurd price hikes seem justified to a general public addicted to speed and power that they can buy at the pump.  That the great majority of all known reserves of crude oil occur in Islamic countries makes it imperative for “Big Oil” to incite a feeling in the general public of the “West” regarding the “danger” from Islamic “otherness”. Like all other catch phrases, also “Terrorism” is not clearly defined and also not at all understood: while the systemic terrorism perpetrated by states and multinational corporations goes unreported and virtually unseen, the symptomatic terror (which is a sequitur of the systemic terror) is being used to permit the construction of an Orwellian future – with the full consent of and applause from the masses.  

209                         Manufactured Truth and  Emergent Reality

 Problems related to the pricing-/ availability of oil, the abuse of drugs and the threat posed by “terrorism” were surely not of the magnitude they are perceived to be, were it not for the activities of what we here call the “dumbing machine”. Religions, politics and academia conspire to present the “is” as a consequence of the ills of society which are seen as an emergent reality.  Quite the contrary is the case – they are little less than a manufactured “truth”.  We examine the recent past to underpin this statement.  

222                         Sociological Impact of Technological Advance

 Mankind has become increasingly more adept in shaping the World to its desires and “needs”.  This is the official wisdom;  in reality mankind has exchanged dependency on the vagaries of nature with total abandon towards technology.  While nature is capable of healing itself, even the smallest faulty part will stop a machine and even a small detail of a failed mental concept is not inconsequential. Greed and Technophilia enhance the present corruption of Science, while man has traded freedom for “security”.  

240                        Menomic  Colonialism

 We cannot make any sense of what is going on around us, if we do not examine the way in which we are all guided to think and behave.  The 20th century saw the collapse of all the sociological- and political models that were proposed in the 19th century.  Napoleon had hi-jacked the French Revolution just like elites hi-jacked the industrial revolution. What had seemed for a short while beneficial for mankind turned into all consuming molochs.  When colonialism had reached the end of systemically possible “growth”, the Masters of the Universe changed tack and set sails towards unending conflict.  Political slavery was ex-changed with economic domination and menomic colonialism.   

268                         Re-visiting  Revisionism

 

While the former colonies are being again enslaved – this time not physically but menomically, the sorry remnants of the formerly “Affluent Society” are being mentally caged with academia being penned into paradigmatic cages and the general public may not use its right of “free speech”. Religions have deprived mankind for ages of their ability to think freely;  the new “religions” of the present tar those who want to apply the Baconian “Scientific Method” or Aristotelian philosophical method of “Organon” with the broad brush of “Revisionism”.  What is an integral part of the scientific method (how can we be sure of the validity of a concept if we not test it?)  is being portrayed as an unsocial, even criminal act.  What have those who insist on letting sleeping lions lie have to fear?  That their lies will devour them?

  

292                        3He – The Avenger of Truth

 E pluribus unum:  the “going” paradigm of Oil Formation is by Helium-3 isotope data shown to be holdover from times when science thought to “know-it-all” (without knowing any better).  At the beginning of the 3rd Millennium any further “belief” in this pedestrian kind of “science” puts the entirety of academia to shame or rather underpins the assertion that science has become the handmaiden of elitist control mechanisms over the progressively “dumbed down” masses.  With that “science” has reverted to what it has been in the very beginning:  a manipulative scheme which lets a “priestly class” live parasitically off the back of the ignorant masses which are made to believe in eschatological phantasies.  The New Empire is removing its war mongers by letting them take “personal political responsibility” for atrocities perpetrated by indivuduals on individual Prisoners of War. This detracts from their genocidal crimes and shields the Commander in Chief from being held responsible for a “Holocaust” – which can be proven!  

306                        The <END GAME>

 Judeo-Christian Dogma not only has installed the Origin/ Creation dichotomy in the minds of people (scientists and general population alike) it also now pushes the dogma of Eschatology – and made (some) people want to accelerate the “Coming of the End”. “The Passion of the Christ”– a perverse glorification of torture and sufferance reminded the world that a horrible present is a sine qua non for paradisical bliss.  Less than one third of humanity has been intellectually prepared to succumb to such thinking by virtue of  their religious upbringing – the majority of mankind is being sacrificed to “speed up the Second Coming of the Messiah”.  Those pushing for “Globalisation”,  while accelerating the ignominous end of Gaia are maliciously using the piety of many to hide their intent. In September 2005 it “became official” (commonly known) that the global climate has – possibly irreversably – “flipped: the northern tundras are beginning to melt, spewing immeasurable quantities of methane into the atmosphere and thereby turning the “Greenhouse Effect” into the “Venus Effect”.  The arctic ice is melting at an accelerating rate, thereby possibly (probably?) altering the path of thermohaline conveyor-belts (like the Gulf Stream). This will lead to a number of processes with the net effect that humanity will be driven out of the “Techno Paradise” into the wastelands that it has created.   

323                 Human Spiritual Devolution

  We will never know what compelled taxonomists to come up with the stupid species name of H. sapiens.  Animals have instincts that  motorically “drive” their reflexes and reactions to environmental stimuli; human hubris does not permit animals to have “feelings”.  Humans had spirituality that did for them what instincts did for animals;  religions, science (philosophy) and politics have to a large degree supplanted spirituality with synthetic beliefs, knowledge and fears. The herd-instinct of animals has been engineered in humans not for individual (and species) “good” but for elitist “better”.   Just like “life” on Earth has devolved from magnificent beginnings, so has human spirituality devolved to its present sorry state. The enterprise of science has devolved into a moloch: several categories of Nobel Prizes should thus be rolled into one: the invention of new Weapons of Mass Destruction.   

346                        A Passionate Plea for an Ethical Future

  In an attempt to show some of the many absurdities of the “human condition” of present times, a number of the most blatant unsavoury aspects of  it are listed.  After trying to subsume all of this we realise, that the shaping of a “better future” will have to be based on the establishment of a truely ethical scientific enterprise. Both research and teaching will have to revert to principles advocated by Aristotle for philosophy and Sir Francis Bacon for science;  the “Judaisation” of science (really already beginning with Francis Bacon) during the period of the Enlightenment which has in effect suffused academia with Talmudic principles has to be reversed in order to achieve such a “revolution”.  

            Such a return to origins of principles has to be paralleled by a legal and constitutional revolt on the political level that will bring the concept of democracy (rule of the people by the people and for the people) into resonance with present day realities.

11          1. Religions 

Religions, human endeavors to answer questions as to the <why> of existence developed out of old mysticism and were turned into control mechanisms of humanity by the original kleptocrats (a.k.a. “priests”).  When the answers to questions regarding the <how> of existence did not tally anymore with religious dogma, the human mind conceived of oriental mon-ism and occidental mono-theism.  That oriental brains are “wired” differently let them conceive some 2,500 years ago what occidental theoretical physics has only discovered in the present: all existence is an interference of energies (this explains why everything apparently is connected with everything else).Unable to perform this mental leap, occidental minds came up with the concept of a single Godhead.  The believers were told by the creators of this single Godhead, that it had acted as the “creator”.  This Creator (YHWH) was furthermore said to be of human “form” so as to enable man to become a creator (of things) himself.  All the bad in the present world follows from this “creativity” which lets man believe he were the “master of the world”. We look at some of the perversions of religions which turn them into more effective and more obvious control mechanisms of masses which have replaced spirituality with dependence on technology. 

36         2. Science 

Science we call the human endeavor to explain (more than often “away”) the creative principle that operates in nature – so as to be able to emulate it and in the process to be able to control and change nature.  Western science and religion negate steadfastly that nature has a consciousness (and “will”) and have by way of dogmatism obscured their ignorance of what they consider to be reality. They boldly replaced reality with “truths”. Remnants of the Cartesian World View (world as a machine), together with hold-overs from the Newtonian world view (action causes reaction) mingle with the virtual haze of the Einsteinian World View (everything is relative) to signify the accomplishment of Judaisation/ Talmudisation of western science (effectively making it the realm of people who consider themselves “chosen ”). Western science (and technology based on it) in essence are names given to activities and their products which enable man to cause nature to “produce” more and to devise ways and means to enable those who “have” to prevent others from “getting”.  When the products of man became “better” than those of nature (more durable and of more utility), the wastes from production became non-metabolic as well;  in that way the circularity of natural processes was inhibited.  There are obviously two kinds of science: that which explains nature and the other one that governs man-made artifacts. That this is not “public knowledge” lets elites “get away” with (literally) murder. Not the products of modern man characterize the present, but the wastes that follow from their making and use.   

64         3. Politics 

The administrators/ practitioners of religions and sciences realized that knowledge (of the spiritual and factual kind) meant power which “drives” politics. The unholy trinity that rules the world in the present gained momentum already in times immemorial.  The executioners of elitist schemes in politics,  religion and science are responsible for the worst effects of human nature on humanity and nature.  When the much vaunted catchphrase of “separation of church and state” was invented during the period of enlightenment,  this led to the disconnect of humanity and its innate spirituality and gave overriding power to the beneficiaries/ perverters of the human need to “believe”. It is a fact, that Chinese science had come up with gunpowder, compass, determination of longitude and the printing press (among many other inventions and technologies) many centuries before “western” man.  It is also a fact, that most of the “discoveries” which western seafarers are credited with commonly, had been already made by the Chinese earlier. Why did the Chinese not turn into the “Masters of the Universe”?  We will only ever come to understand this curious situation if and when we know about the history and philosophy of the Han-Dynasty (205 BCE to 200 CE), which put “the brakes” on human hubris.  Chinese authors bemoan the fact, that for nearly 2 millennia Confucianism has “hobbled” Chinese science;  they do not realize that Chinese morality kept Chinese science from becoming the unethical enterprise it has become in the “West”. What holds for science has governed Chinese politics since times immemorial. 

74        4. Distributive Complicity / Retributive Loyalty 

Western man entered into a deal with the “devil” (in the details, as long as they were knowable) and turned into the “Faustian Man”.   In order to “get away” with what he was doing, he turned the power of knowledge into political powers in emulation of Catholic priestly power acquired during the hearing of confessions. From this developed “distributed complicity” in the Faustian mind.  Respect for nature and humanity turned into tolerance of misdeeds of others in order to ensure their tolerance of one’s own misdeeds.  The Yin to this Yang of human nature is here called “retributive loyalty”. Like with everything else, human nature also managed to commodify the principle of respect and turned it into tolerance.  Confucianism operates in similar ways, does however not invoke any divine fiat. The a-symmetries which emerged from the sequestration of knowledge, power and resulting material wealth established present day reality. 

94        5. Mandala – Cross – Arrow 

All of human endeavor is due to man’s “will”; his will is again strongly guided by his World View.  In the beginning, World Views were, like all of nature, of a metabolic (or circular) kind- in accord with early mysticisms and religions. Monism/ monotheism  (the reduction of all things material or spiritual to a single cause) emerged from scientific thinking in India; in the Middle East the out-come of such thinking – YHWH (Yahweh / Yehovah)  became such a beastly (over-) lord, that the concept of “forgiveness” (the essence of the Christian heresy) took the world by storm.  The concept of “sin” was fashioned into the cross onto which the consciousness of believers was nailed by clerical elites. To Buddhists karma (the age-old Hindu concept of causality of retribution – better its avoidance)  was a rule already half a millennium earlier. The administrators of YHWH formalised oral tradition of the Talmud in order to regain (cement) rabbinical power over their flock and crucified the threat to their teachings. Materialistic and spiritualistic Hinduist sects based on the <Upanishads> (Hinduist secret writings/ teachings)  tried to stem the loss of “market share” due to the emergence of Buddhism/ Jainism, just like the Hadiths (sayings traditionally attributed to the prophet Muhammed) were added to the Koran (to enable the priesthood to attain and exert control over the “flock” ?).  

When technology emerging from western science required man to be educated, this minimized the hold of religion over western man and let the “arrow of progress” take his life away from him.  We  should not worry about ever “making it into” paradise/ heaven,  but get concerned about the effects of the <Holocide> unleashed by fundamentalist monotheists which will turn our material world into a veritable hell. The worst crime of all,  the <Geocide> perpetrated by elites organised into Secret Societies is never ever even talked about.

 116         6. Kali Yuga – The Time without Morals and Ethics 

Modern times came to an end, when (in Hinduist terms) the “kali-yuga”, immoral and virtueless times,  started.  While “Victorian morality” was a mainly elitist phenomenon, the First World War saw the total breaking down of ethics on a global scale. By that time, the new materialistic religion of “Darwinism / Evolution” which had replaced the  G-D concept with serendipity (to explain the inexplicable) had taken a firm hold of western mankind.  The great leap forward in science and technology since the “Scientific-/ Industrial Revolution” had turned the world into a slaughterhouse set within a wasteland.   In recognition of the unsustainability of the political and military modus operandi slaves and later colonies were “freed” and the “Cold War” replaced actual butchery with the threat of it.  Unnoticed by the masses, they were enslaved with the concept of consumer credit which permitted to enjoy the fruits of tomorrow’s labour already today while “liberalism” turned the whole world into one big colony. The new modus operandi of the financial elite is best called: Disaster Capitalism,  the ultimate perversion of Schumpeter’s constructive destruction into destructive creation. 

139       7. “Who is not with us is against us…” 

Like all fundamentalisms, the “American Empire” is supplanting consensual alliances with illegal unilateralism and all those not willing to condone this kind of action are declared “evil”.  The “Clash of Civilizations”, for many years drummed into western consciousness by genocidal maniacs has been initiated unilaterally and a “Newtonian” reaction must be considered a systemic sequitur by logical thinkers. A Buddhist/ Jainist alternative to viewing the world is offered to suggest a non-violent,  fair and equitable modus vivendi for mankind. The (largely invisible) systemic terrorism perpetrated on all the world by states and globalism (a.k.a. corporatism ó fascism) is causing symptomatic terrorism which makes “good copy” and sells weapons/ “security systems”. The world at large is making a distinction with regards of Americans which they themselves are incapable of ; they are perplexed by the results of opinion polls which show that people still like “us” (them- as individuals) but abhor what “we” (they- as a nation) do.   Americans  need to be told, that “us” and “we” are two entirely different entities. 

161      8. Scientific Myopia and World Views – Common Bedfellows 

A whirlwind review of “World Views” shows that they do not derive from scientific knowledge, but we realize with horror, that scientific method is largely controlled by World Views!  Science deals with approximations of reality; scientists “sell” these approximations to the general public as if they were realities. Institutional science lives in permanent denial of the fact that formerly used  methodology (“Baconian Scientific Method”) is being prevented from being adapted to new knowledge by paradigmatic encapsulation.  The result of this is that academia and the general population are “dumbed down” with popularizations of “science” that describe little and explain less. Whenever his ability to comprehend failed man the “creator”, he resorted to religion or simply ignored the facts that did not fit the dogma.  From this emerged innumerous apocalyptic views of the “future”. Some of those, from as disparate fields as politics and environmentalism to medicine and technology to “Peak Oil” and total meltdown of the financial system are presented and contrasted with Judeo-Christian eschatology.  The hoi polloi are conditioned to confuse cause and effect. Present global politics, militarism and terrorism appear very much like baited traps for a returning “Messiah” to lead “chosenites” and their willing coalition partners into paradisical bliss at the expense of humanity  and Gaia. 

188       9. Cognitive Dissonance and Intuitive Resonance  

In order to understand the way that “popular consensus” regarding immoral, counterproductive and illogical concepts put forward by sociology, economy, politics and other fields is manu-factured, we first get familiar with the concept of “cognitive dissonance“.  It enables people of all walks of life to disregard manifest reality in favour of beliefs held because of religious creeds,  scientific paradigms or political persuasions.  They in turn are reduced to the materialistic <more is better>.  Wanting to be “good” we all are prey to “intuitive resonance“,  and act in  politically correct” ways without realizing, that we condone the unethical machinations of elites uncritically because of ignorance.

 203      10. The Dumbing Machine 

The conspiracy of churches, science and politics – here called the Dumbing Machine, uses shamelessly the cognitive dissonance and intuitive resonance which people have developed as survival strategies in an ever more confusing world.  At a time when communications technology and the internet deliver information in ever increasing amounts, many mistake intellectual garbage and subliminal messaging as “news”. The general public is served up a menu of “info-tainment”, garnished with “info-mercials” that to all intents and purposes constitutes an extremely unbalanced mental diet harmful to most and lethal to many.  The global media are covering up the machinations of the military-industrial complex – considering the common ownership this does not come as a surprise.  Some of the most egregious cases of misrepresentation of facts, biased reporting and outright lies are cited in order to – once and for all – expose what really drives that which we usually call “history”.  The modus operandi of the elites is conceptionalized to explain the modus vivendi of the de-selected. 

269      11. Divided We Stand 

Religions, sciences and politics all work along the age-old Judaeic principle which Julius Caesar called “divide et impera” (divide and rule).  Like everything else, this principle is applied on all levels to separate humans from their spiritual substrate – humanity.  For a long time religious, ethnic and political differences were “used” to create the mayhem required to start off conflicts which generate profits for elites from the misery of the masses. As Amschel Mayer (the founder of the Rothschild dynasty) was fond of saying: “the best time to make money is when blood is flowing freely on the streets….”!Since the end of WW II. a number of “regional unions” in terms of economical-, military- or/ and political cooperation have sprung up all over the world.  Most of those include their former colonial “masters” or the New Empire and are little else but cloaked neo-colonialism.  When manipulation of the American financial system caused a global stock-market crash, soon to be followed by the collapse of the American Savings & Loans Banks, the western banking system called on their loans to the Communist countries and they tumbled like dominoes in 1989.  With no more “enemy” the sole surviving superpower was in desperate need of a “replacement monster“. Since the (still unexplained) atrocities of “9-11” the vilification of the Islamic World goes hand in glove with the protection-racket of Anti-Semitism.

  295      12.  In Arms They Trust 

The “Washington Consensus”, imposed on the losers of the “Cold War” will have the same long-term effect as the  “peace dictate of Versailles” after World War I – it will lead to global conflict and perpetuate the profits from manufacturing war materiel. Over 50% of the world’s industrial production is arms related and there will never be a “peace dividend” for humanity, as that would cut into the dividends of the “gun smiths”. The “containment strategy” devised by the Truman administration was supplanted by Reagan’s confrontational style and offense-oriented policies. G.W. Bush announced the strategy of preventing the rise of a challenging power and preemptive strikes against anybody wanting to achieve this aim.  The first time around his election promise of “a more compassionate America” turned into “full spectrum dominance”;  in 2004 he promised to “fight terrorism overseas” so as to ensure that Americans will tolerate to be terrorized at home by their government.  Nobody can predict how this will all play out – but the warnings are ominous!  That George Soros and the mouthpiece of the Republican party are ditching G.W. Bush spells disaster for his presidency and the “American Empire” concept –the biggest rats sense that their ship is going down! 

312     13.  The Era of Phoney Wars 

When Colin Powell announced in 2002 that “we will bring democracy and Free Market Economy to the Arab World – if need be with atomic weapons“ he added another marked card into the deck: the wars on drugs and terrorism were just not generating enough “business” for the gun-smiths. There is one (one only!) lesson to be learned from the 2003 Iraq-“War”: if and when the US government wants a war – it gets a war.  The US government does not rattle sabres- it unsheats them without any further ado! All this to camouflage the fact that practically all major military conflicts of the last century were fought over oil and narcotic drugs.  If America were to adopt European- or Japanese efficiency standards, it were totally independent of oil imports.  Imagine an oil price of US $ 10.00 per barrel (which were a realistic price for crude, were America not wasting probably more than it uses and forcing the global oil industry to overtax production capacity).  If the use of drugs were de-criminalised (and sensibly controlled), agricultural production were again profitable and would reduce the hunger in the world.  The oil price hike in the New Millennium is as ficticious as is the value of the currency in which oil is still traded and when the US Dollar has gone the way of all human creation, there will be a peaceful respite for humanity.We examine a long list of “unsaids” – issues which are never touched upon by the Dumbing Machine so as to not make it plain and obvious that the desperate situation of humanity and Gaia are caused by manipulation of economy and human minds. 

372      14.  Can Hegel be proven wrong? 

Hegel is often quoted for saying that “the only thing we can learn from history is that mankind does not learn from history“.  That is one of the other cases where Hegel was wrong: it is not mankind but elitist manipulation that does “make” history! All revolutions to date have been hi-jacked and only proved James Burnham correct: revolutions only change the ruling elites.  The blood of mankind spilled in the process was only “greasing the wheels”.  There are many calling at present for a “revolution to save the planet”. All that any further revolution will do,  is bring the globe closer to the eschatological finale desired by the elite of the elites. Revolutions – axiomatically – are unlawful and unconstitutional and thus carry the seed of their own demise within them.   This is why it is argued here to learn from history and change tack: aware of the enormous power that we all have (despite our personal insignificance) as the electoral sovereign, we have to use this power to de-select the elites.  This calls for awareness, communication and co-operation. All those who do not participate in democratic elections forgo the last right that they still have – to cast their vote!  If everybody casts an invalid vote, then whoever is the numerical winner of the elections will have a mandate from his accomplices only (by definition a very small number).  As the vast majority in this case had voted against any and all the “winners”, they would in fact have no popular mandate.  The Australian constitution proscribes for a “winner” a minimum of 7% of the popular vote.  Any number lower or close to this figure would trigger automatically a take-over by the people in the wake of such a ‘DEMOCRATIC REVOLT”. Such an event were entirely legal and constitutional and would appear the only practicable way to stop the elites from dragging humanity into an ever accelerating vortex of greed and immorality.  

405         15. The Dawn of the Age of post-Zionism/ -Globalization

 The Information Age is beginning to expose “anti-Semitism” as oxymoronic “linguistic engineering” and a Weapon of Mass Deception.  A brief review of the history of Zionism from the perspective of Systems Theory would suggest, that it “has had its time” and is bound to join the ever increasing number of failed elitist concepts. Zionist scheming being one of the main driving forces of Globalism lets also this  Weapon of Mass Destruction (of human culture and achievement) appear as a spent force.  The “New World Order” will soon be transposed into a “New Human Condition” – we have to ask what kind of “collateral damage” we are willing to accept. 

420         16. After the Democratic Revolt – Rule of COMMON LAW  

When Mahatma Gandhi incited a Democratic Revolt, he achieved the desired result – total refusal to cooperate with the British freed India from foreign rule.  Cut down by the bullets of an assassin in 1947, Gandhi could not implement his plan to decentralize all political processes and institutions and implement his plan of what decades later became a buzz-word: “Small Is Beautiful”. A similarly peaceful, lawful, constitutional and orderly Democratic Revolt as advocated here seems to be a prerequisite for Common Law ruling over humanity instead of elitist designs which effectively divide the populations of democratic states into masses without rights but plenty of obligations while elites have no obligations but are enjoying the right to do as they see fit. To change all this after the Democratic Revolt five major steps are suggested: 1) Reduce religious, political and economic organisation to the communal level. Governments have to implement hierarchichally the will of the people 2) Total demilitarization (no weapons- no war); there will be plenty of “scrap” to recycle to give Gaia (the living Earth) “a break”. Adopting highest efficiency standards and available technology/ search for alternatives –  this will take a lot of “pressure” off Gaia.3)  Much smaller world population by way of raising standards of living (which is the only really effective contraceptive and reproductional disincentive) – elevating Common Law above the laws made by elitist self  interest.4)  Return economy to what the meaning of the Greek root-word implies; Industry has to be forced into metabolic ways and means of production. “Money” has to be turned from a private source of interest into a common means to generate affluence.5)  Gaia has to be seen and treated as a real partner.  

The New Human Condition (a Utopia?), a state governed by the above principles is surely not possible to achieve without a massive effort from scientifically trained and historically knowledgeable idealists. Nearly every one of the listed fundamentals clearly countermands presently adhered dogma for various sections of modern society. Far too many believe in the cash & carry methodology of present politics and are swayed by the promised rewards for “proper” behaviour in the voting booth. That they rarely– if ever– eventuate should be an incentive to be realistic and give  the advocated Democratic Revolt a chance. After all, the signs for the future are such that any real change can only be an improvement. It is hoped that the popular consensus required to implement a Democratic Revolt and the subsequent constitutional changes will not be brought about by apocalyptic events.
