The recent economic circumstances, the bailout, Madoff, Gaza, are having the effect of waking up large numbers of people to the truth. Truths that dissidents and the disaffected have been attempting to alert others to for decades and centuries. The public’s consciousness has never within recent memory been as cognizant of truth as it is now. Rather than point out certain truths, it seems to be a good time to look at the principles behind what might be possible to put into place when those who are responsible for the current problems are rendered irrelevant, along with knowing what the operating premises and principles of the current powers-that-be are so that in the process of rebuilding we do not make the same mistakes which they are doing.
The corporate structure, exclusiveness and denial of responsibility are the pillars on which the current structure of Western society stands. A tripod, if you will, each component reinforcing the other.
The corporation exists ostensibly as a way in which individuals can engage in what would otherwise be risky behavior, the benefits to society were assumed to be that innovation and experimentation undertaken by those who created a corporation would be of benefit to society. And that without being able to segregate one’s personal assets from assets used to start and run a corporation, an individual would be less likely to participate in potentially risky activities. It should be obvious by looking at current events that the corporate structure is proving to society to be more trouble than it is worth.
Denial of responsibility ties in directly with the corporate structure. If a corporation engages in what the law deems to be actions harmful to the public, then it is the corporation which suffers the consequences. Not the individuals who started, ran and benefited from it. A society based upon mutual trust and voluntary association of free individuals is opening itself up to disaster when certain of it’s members are able to operate without the constraints which bind others.
Exclusiveness is the third leg of the tripod.
This means in application that some people are recognized by virtue of religion, race, class or nationality, as superior to others. And this superiority entitles them to rights and privileges. Those who in the past have acted against exclusiveness have all too often either unwittingly served the exclusiveness of another group or have defined their existence from the existence of a competing, exclusive group. The civil rights movement in the US and the National Socialists in Germany are perfect examples of the former and latter, respectively.
Looking at these three pillars, what their significance is, what underlies them, are the character traits of greed and fear. Only the fearful would attempt to deny the common humanity of others through exclusiveness. And only the greedy would seek to engage in activities harmful to one’s fellow members of society and get away with it. So we, as dissidents, as those aware and making effort to institute a new, lasting and beneficial society, could do worse than realize, put into practice and set the examples of love, responsibility and
generosity forward for others. The powers-that-be, the war profiteers, Zionists, the corporations, in their failing efforts to retain their powers, authority and credibility, they want us, all of us who are not them, fearful and suspicious as we compete amongst ourselves for what they know to be the pitiful scraps which they throw to us from their tables. Unlike them, we don’t need to dominate others in order to survive just like we don’t need massive quantities of material objects to be happy. Nor do we need to deny our common humanity in order to feel special. Those who have brought the planet to it’s current state have operated with the consciousness that the ends justify the means. In truth, the exact opposite is true. The means justify the ends. So whatever we build to replace their failing systems, if we build with the principles of love, generosity and a recognition of man’s common humanity, we should have no fear of being in error.
