The Fight Club foreshadowed the pissed off world of today
Ah, the publick edumacation system. Forced into it like so many young slaves from age 5 to age 18 in America. Then brainwashed into spending another 4 to 6 years at university accruing massive debt (student loans are the new indentured servitude) while the best years of your life pass you by.
But, it’s for a good cause. Learning “valuable” skills that will enable young people to become valuable assets and earn their place in America’s vaunted middle class. Well, that’s the narrative. Yet another shameless lie among a sea of shameless lies that prop up this declining nation.
H.L. Mencken illuminates us with some Red Pill truth on what the true purpose of America’s edumacation system actually is:
The most erroneous assumption is to the effect that the aim of public education is to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence, and so make them fit to discharge the duties of citizenship in an enlightened and independent manner.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.
Unfortunately, as many men are discovering after having been there, done that with the “studying hard” and the “college degree” and not stepping out of line, following the system’s instructions only earns one a place at the corporate trough right alongside the other human cattle being milked of their productivity. Men will be used and abused to the max for a meager paycheck and a bleak existence.
Your teachers and counselors at school lied to you. They wanted you to finish school so their graduation stats would look good to the state. The “Real World” everyone speaks of is a world in which Machiavellian Intelligence is the rule.
As less productive citizens blow dope and pop out kids on your dime, you’ll be expected to be Mr. Perfect at your dehumanizing, demoralizing GloboWorldCorp job. You’ll be expected to keep pace on a
40 50 60 70 hour a week treadmill, and if you miss a step your masters will notice. Most of the income you make will already be spent on “life debt” (food, house, car, student loan payment, government-mandated health insurance) before you even get the direct deposit. Careful not to develop burnout syndrome, which will only compound the little mistakes at work you’re already making.
Not to mention, being worked to to point of burnout syndrome will negatively affect your health, but at least the medical-pharmaceutical complex can make a living off your suffering: Research indicates that burnout is associated with reduced job performance, coronary heart disease, and mental health problems. Chronic burnout is also associated with cognitive impairments such as memory and attention. Occupational burnout is also associated with absences, time missed from work, and thoughts of quitting. [Ed: And suicide].
It’s as if the system already has the events of your life planned out for you, and dares you to step out of line.
As you’re subjected to random drug testing to earn The Man’s money, the State will take half your pay to give to those people we just mentioned who are smoking pot, snorting cocaine, living in Section 8 housing, and popping out 3 kids while you can’t afford 1 nor the child support slavery and alimony that a marriage + frivorce to an Anglobitch would cost you.
Here are three of the most vital lessons they didn’t teach you in school, while they programmed leftist groupthink into your malleable, young mind:
- After graduation, and college, most of you are going to be used and abused corporate drones working in menial, tedious, and unreliable “here today, gone tomorrow” jobs
- College degrees are becoming as valuable as toilet paper in “The New Economy”
- The world is a dog eat dog place, and modern employers treat their employees like they’re contestants in The Hunger Games.
After a few short years in your new “career” you might find your life is a living hell. Bukowski put it this way:
How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?
Add to that, you’ll be expected to smile and always have a positive attitude or the HR department will be all too happy to put another warm body into your position.
At some point, you’ll probably get pissed off and develop a sense of anger and rage for a system that exploited you from childhood. Fight Club’s Tyler Durden states this feeling best:
I see in the fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential and I see squandering. Goddamn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives, we’ve been all raised by television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t and we’re slowly learning that fact. and we’re very very pissed off.
The edumacation system helps feed this fantasy that Durden speaks of, the fantasy that one day, all men will all be successful career men living fanciful lives. Is it any wonder that anger is becoming the trademark of modern life?
No, most will be debt slaves, wage slaves, and obese, demoralized husks of humanity waiting on death to take them away from The Human Farm Stefan Molyneaux so vividly details. As has been said before, perhaps the most crucial realization the newly awakened man can have is this: The only way to win, is not to play.
Go Galt. Let this con game implode of its own volition.
