The vison of a liberal Utopia is fraught with scientific and sociological problems
Liberals constantly tout the Utopian vision of a world without any sort of problems, one in which mankind turns on a dime and greed, hostility to outsiders, and all the other baggage of our species that led to such tragedies as the Salem Witch Trials, the Spanish Inquisition, and two World Wars will just magically evaporate.
It’s a nice political selling point. But it’s also rife with hypocrisy. First and foremost is the myopic view that vocal dissent must be crushed and everyone must behave according to liberal paradigms or they’re racist, sexist, or some other kind of -ist.
The liberal vision of Utopia is particularly troubling since maniacal billionaires who support it obviously wish to mold humanity in such a way there will be only two classes – servants and elite – in the future, likely with no middle class at all. Bureaucrats and their paymasters are doing this with the establishment of an electronic tyranny the likes of which the world has never seen.
What a way to end a 4.5 billion year evolutionary heritage, a planet of masters and slaves.
An electronic dog collar is slowly appearing in fits and starts as social engineers seek to destroy mankind’s independence and freewill with an electronic bureaucracy that will follow him from cradle to grave. This electronic tyranny will monitor his every move, every action, and will use man’s money against him as the elimination of cash (in the minds of elites and other liberals) will create a world or borg in which there is blind submission to authority or else.
It’s a world of B.F. Skinner’s classical conditioning, using tech to do so. Somehow, impoverishing mankind and taking away his freewill in service of the collective is supposed to make everything right.
The Law of the Jungle still applies in the business, financial, and sexual worlds even though humans try to hide it with sophistry
One only need spend a short time around humanity to realize we are all flawed. Even though the media touts the virtues of the paymasters in the elite class as if they’re some sort of demigods with a love for humanity rather than the contempt they so often show through their actions, the story of how they became elite is troublesome. They built their empires on the backs of other men.
The corporation we are all supposed to worship, a bastardization of a true free market economy displays all the traits of a psychopath. Yet, we’re never supposed to question its motives or its authority over our lives.
This conundrum is pointed out in the film The Corporation, recommended viewing on The New Modern Man.
If corporations are indeed “persons,” their mental condition can accurately be described as pathological. Corporations have no innate moral impulses, and in fact they exist solely for the purpose of making money. As such, these “persons” are systemically driven to do whatever is necessary to increase revenues and profits, with no regard for ethical issues that might nag real people.
This is why America has become a culture of selling out. There is no culture other than slavish adherence to consumption, especially shopping and eating out, in modern times. Well, maybe football since you have to appease the “deplorables” with circuses, too, and not just bread.
Continuing from the synopsis of The Corporation:
But, you say, corporations are owned and managed by real people, so surely immoral corporate actions might be inhibited by them? Well, not really. First of all, the officers and directors who run corporations are actually duty-bound to act in the corporation’s best financial interest, and that means they are obliged to do whatever they can within the law to make money. Thus, this fiduciary duty requires corporate management to set aside ethical niceties when they get in the way of corporate profits. This is why tobacco companies market their products to kids when they can – only laws prohibiting such conduct will keep them from doing so.
In effect, The Corporation and its preisthood – the elite – have become cancers on humanity rather than capitalist ventures helping mankind as pointed out by John McMurtry.
Of course, there is nothing inherently wrong with capitalism when the playing field is not manipulated by a servile government in such a way it creates a playing field in which the little guy is forced out of the game, and corporations control every avenue of the economy and government.
Once this happens, an unelected autocracy assumes control of the economy and society itself as Spengler warned would happen 100 years ago. He called it “Economic powers permeating the political forms and authorities.” That’s exactly what has happened as the West enters steep decline.
This is the Cancer Stage of Capitalism, one that could mestastisize and consume the whole of humanity.
Genes determine much of human behavior in ways that can’t easily be modified
Ever since life arose on this small, humble planet third from the sun, there has been one rule that stands tall above all other rules: The desire every organism has to survive and thrive. Unfortunately, our species has been imbued with Machiavellian Intelligence. This is in addition to other genetic traits that are difficult if not impossible to “train” out of men.
Larceny is in the hearts of all men, and especially in the elite classes since one must forgo humanity it order to rise to the peak of those institutions. Blogger Dylan Charles explains:
A common thread between many of the world’s great political and social leaders is their willingness to call out the major banks and bankers for their complicity in establishing and maintaining economic tension and international conflict in our world.
Again, cancer serves as a good metaphor for what is happening. Charles continues:
Jesus whipped the money changers when he drove them from the Temple for turning his Father’s house into a den of thieves, and since the days of Christ, history is the story of a never-ending struggle between houses of finance and public interests.
Make no mistake, we on the public interest side are losing this battle as the 21st century progresses.
There is no “you” in kleptocracy
A Submissive Humanity
To the freethinking, independent man of will, blindand forced submission to unjust authority is the worst of all possible nightmares.
As Mahatma Gandhi knew, peaceful resistance is the first line of defense in guarding against the incursion of the State into the life of the individual.
Gary McGee eluciated this strategy in a recent article on The Waking Times:
So what is a proactive citizen to do? First things first: we should question all laws, even the ones that we take for granted. We must ask ourselves, is this law valid? Does this man-made law agree with cosmic law and the natural order of things? Is this law healthy, especially in regard to progressive human evolution? Is this law just, especially in regard to the balance of power? Is this law sustainable, especially in regard to environmental health? Above all, we must ask ourselves if we have the courage it takes to become an outlaw when such laws aim to outlaw freedom.
As a renegade blog, The New Modern Man has already come under fire from hateful social justice warriors and most recently was targeted by Pixton, the company we paid to illustrate our Be Like Dirk comics series. We have been forced to remove the comics even though they were paid for due to some esoteric legal technicalities.
This obviously points to a censorship agenda.
Much like the Samizdat in Russia, as the censorship agenda intensifies blogs like The New Modern Man and Return of Kings will increasingly come under fire from authoritarian leftists.
Perhaps the tale of humanity doesn’t end with a bang, but a whimper as it is subjected to servitude in its final hours. McGee continues:
The gravest threat facing us as a nation is not extremism—delivered by way of sovereign citizens or radicalized Muslims—but despotism, exercised by a ruling class whose only allegiance is to power and money.
Indeed, the love of money and psychopathic greed may be the source of the next population bottleneck our species will be forced through. It seems that pesky evolutionary baggage and genetic programing aren’t going anywhere, no matter how much virtue signaling and Machiavellian deception leftists strangle us with.
Where do we go from peaceful resistance if that tactic does not work?
