Religion was the surest path of salvation. From what? No, not the Devil. That was a mythos invented during superstitious times...the Devil was created
for a society that responded much better to superstition than science. Religion was our salvation...from ourselves. It kept us from destroying our own
This brings to mind that Emerson's quote, "Society everywhere is in
conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members,"
which, I think, shows this idea (even if the the writer had a different
idea in mind at the time he wrote that). I would replace "manhood"
with 'adulthood' and add that America is a nation of juveniles (dare
I say delinquents). But to your point, government has had to rule
over us because of this very fact--we seem to lack the maturity
to self-govern... .
Then again, maybe not. For example, people can argue
if a false-flag attack was a) orchestrated or b) allowed to
happen... but what we can agree on is that the result in either
case is the same--the government uses such events to draw
more power to itself. So then, if we say government is there
to protect the juveniles from themselves--it is also true that in
the process government become a parent who will not allow
the child to grow up... and who is served by breed more of
the same. Will the the child to demand freedom, perhaps...
but what is the the outcome likely to be. Will this such a
childish person in an adult body ever reach maturity
and learn to govern themselves or other with wisdom?
"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized
conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.” -- Frederick Douglass
Under such oppression the outcome is likely to be a new
breed of oppressions. The juveniles delinquents become
the new leaders of society--and all they know, all they have
been taught is how to oppress others (as they themselves
have been). And so the conspiracy against the adulthood
and maturity of humanity is a cycle that perpetuates itself.
Conversely, those who live a disciplined life, and who do
become fully mature and responsible adults are a model
of true success. Their wisdom and "success" acts as an
impetus for others. In theory, this is also a cycle that will
repeat itself, over and over again. I said in theory but I
should have said in practice positivity breeds positivity,
the problem is that practice is rare. And why is it rare?
Because in society of money junkies the biggest marktet
are the juveniles delinquents and wisdom is in competition
with madison avenue. In theory both patterns (o "thought
system") can produce habit energy, and in either care they
will become so ingrained in our mind that it becomes normal
(that is to say it coresponds to the norm--the status quo).
The problem is our society does not esteem wisdom.
As the American Indian observed (as we were eager
to commit genocide against them), the "white culture"
is infected with madness of greed. Our society is
quite literally insane. We deceive ourselves with
our madness, we breed that madness, and we
reward that madness. Then we say government
is need to control our madness.
Welcome to the machine...
The government has been waiting for us to mature...and in order to more successfully rule over us, it decided to kill two birds with one stone:
train us to follow its rules, thereby achieving a "standby" mode that would make us more compliant, and more easily trainable to support our "life
support", so to speak. Basically, keep us from killing each other, and at the same time, keep us feeding it as well. Unfortunately, either the Elite
decided that we didn't need to be spiritual, or the people who inherited the design forgot what the original intention was.
Either way, we're now stuck in "standby" mode until someone gives the government (and religion) a kick in the arse. Because it's the government who
was protecting and maintaining our race during standby, using us to support itself as well.... it's the government that is now so reliant upon us,
it's clinging to us in the desperate attempt to keep itself around a while longer. I'm hoping, once revolution happens, we'll cast aside religion as
The question is have we, or will be, ever evolve beyond our
need to be under the control of the systems we have created
for that purpose (government, religion)? The answer is
only as individuals. The society is mad. The people who
rise to the top of any hierarchical structure are conditioned
not only to accept this madness, but to reinforce it, and to
profit from that insanity. The cycle perpetuates itself and
in this way we have created an Artificial Intelligence that
we call "the Machine" (or the Matrix) and is has been
programed by the human ego.
It is not in "stand by" mode, rather it is busy doing what
our collective ego programed it to do--survive at any cost
using the insane model we gave it. The question is how
we reprogram the Machine with a new thought system?
