If you just search up the phrase, "thin veneer of civilization" coined by edgar rice burroughs(author of tarzan), it just makes you wonder that this whole system in which we are under, which includes religion, pacifying drugs and fluoridated water, hypnotic signals from tv and radio, phones etc all of that set up to subdue the barbarian inside all of us?

if you think about it, we ALL are capable of really ugly stuff when it comes to survival, case and point scenarios like Lenningrad, New Orleans after Katrina and most recently Haiti with its mobs of people with machetes, pillaging and raping through the streets.

In the end, it comes down all of us spiritually and introspectively understanding ourselves independently, not with the help of so called specialists or anyone else, we would have to have a whole revolution inside our mind, not a physical revolution but something which deals with Us

Any thoughts?

Uh yeah.

Silly premise because you are encouraging us to think ... "what if..."

You are using recent scenario for reference, when in fact, prior to the dumbing down of this society, intelligence was making huge leaps and bounds.

The framework that our society has become has never meant to save us from ourselves (our raging hormones, as it were.)

It was created out of fear from the blue blood elitists. They fear a society that becomes to intelligent and out grows their need for elites. They stagnate and desire all to do the same.

Except for those foolish enough to cow to their desires and serve their purpose.

Contributing intelligence and advances to be horded by them.

They fear the potential of others surpassing their own. Which is quite easy outside the structure of our society and all it entails.

Deep, I know... It should make you think!

Where have all of the innovative entrepreneurs gone? They are ... Lost in our infrastructure... Lost to the elites in some research tank???

IMO... Your point is in the wrong direction.

I think the system is set up so the rich and powerful can subdue the poor and weak.

But the question is - who or what set up the system?

It is obviously the work of evil which equals the devil/satan/the underworld.

So, I have to ask, how do you rich and powerful feel now, knowing that it leads to that?
