Check it out and find out what kind of person you REALLY are. Quite a good read.
The Old World Order
They take their privileged positions for granted.
Believe that they intrinsically deserve to be at the top of society.
Believe that they are better than those who are not similarly privileged.
Believe that God/Nature has conferred their elevated status upon them (nothing to do with luck or circumstances of birth).
Are contemptuous of the members of the lower orders and find them a nuisance.
Don't care about the opinions of the lower orders.
Are obsessed with their position in the pecking order amongst their peers.
Expect the best jobs, the most beautiful partners, the highest salaries, the most choice opportunities in life.
Expect to go to the best schools and colleges and receive the finest education.
Want to be surrounded by their peers and to avoid the lower orders. They love gated communities, shut off and protected from the lower orders.
Expect "the system" to ensure that they are always taken care of.
Expect to live in the finest homes in the finest locations.
Expect to lead rather than follow.
Expect never to be subservient to a member of the lower orders.
Are contemptuous of any member of the lower orders who makes it "big" (nouveau riche/new money).
They rely on the weakness and cowardice of the lower orders.
Snobbery, elitism, class and privilege govern their lives.
Typical Old World Order President: George Bush (father or son).
On the internet, they look for exclusive sites for the social and business elite. They spend time seeking premium vacations, unique experiences, rare
and expensive gifts, fashionable artworks and the latest technologies. At all times, the emphasis is on distancing themselves from ordinary people,
and demonstrating that they are superior to those people.
They are ripe for the manipulations of the group that stands in the shadows behind the Old World Order, and which uses the Old World Order to advance
its own nefarious and mind-boggling ends. This secret group has no connection with reptiles, but it is every bit as shocking. We deliberately say as
little about this group as possible because ordinary people would not accept its existence without seeing our evidence, which we dare not show in
public because worldwide chaos would ensue.
The anti New World Order
Suspicious of authority.
Unconcerned about the opinions/approval of others.
Certain of the correctness of their views.
Distrustful of others.
Have a low opinion of others.
Clever, but not self-critical, and lacking in self awareness.
Resent inappropriate and unmerited wealth, power and authority.
Believe that the world should accord them a much higher status.
Typical President of the anti New World Order movement: None (hence politically disenfranchised and disenchanted).
In terms of David Riesman's book The Lonely Crowd, they are "inner-directed", driven by a potent inner gyroscope that their parents instilled in them.
They feel guilty if they disobey their strong moral compass. They feel good, free and vindicated if they follow it, no matter if it lands them in
They argue their case aggressively in various internet forums.
The Suckers/The Herd
Obsessed with friendship and peer group status.
Want to be loved.
Guided by group think.
Need approval of peer group.
Typical Herd President: Barack Obama, the Social Networking President. The FaceBook/MySpace/Bebo politician. Doomed to be as disastrous as Bush.
According to Riesman, most people in the modern world are "other-directed". The greatest influence in their lives is their peer group. They have no
core values and follow whatever is in vogue at a particular moment. Their stance could flip from one moment to the next depending on the people around
them. As Riesman wrote, "The other-directed person wants to be loved rather than esteemed." They want to relate to others and be in emotional accord
with them. They are the typical employees of large corporations - malleable, compliant, docile, easily controlled, willing to perform the humiliating
9-5 routine indefinitely. They are too busy interacting with their peers to worry about bad government, conspiracies, unlawful and unmerited
authority. In other words, they are suckers, willing to tolerate any nonsense so long as it doesn't threaten their position in their peer group. They
will join popular, trendy protest groups providing their friends are doing the same. Anxiety, rather than guilt, is their main affliction. They are a
herd, a flock, moving in whatever random direction the most purposeful of them has chosen to go in at a particular moment. They're highly
impressionable and gullible, perfect victims for advertising manipulation and the latest fads. Fundamentally, they are rudderless, have no internal
values, are continually buffeted by the winds of fashion. Deep down they are profoundly lonely and in constant need of others to give them a sense of
purpose. These people are Riesman's "lonely crowd." They are the perfect members of a consumer society, and have little to offer in the way of
creativity, spiritual awareness, or human greatness.
On the Internet, they inhabit FaceBook, MySpace, Bebo. Social Networking sites were made for them.
The Dead Hand of the Past/The Traditionalists
Respectful of authority.
Family and community obsessed.
Fearful and suspicious of outsiders.
Completely lacking critical faculties in relation to their community's belief system.
Terrified of losing honour, of being shamed in the eyes of their community.
Guided by group think.
Need approval of community.
Typical Traditionalist President: Dwight Eisenhower.
