“It was, indeed, the Age of Information, but information was not the precursor to knowledge; it was the tool of the salesmen.”
"In a society of employees dominated by the marketing mentality, it is inevitable that a personality market should arise. For in the great shift from manual skills to the art of ‘handling’, selling and servicing people… personal or even intimate traits of employees are drawn into the sphere of exchange… and become commodities in the labor market...
Kindness and friendliness become aspects of personalized service or of public relations of big firms, rationalized to further the sale of something. With anonymous insincerity, the successful person thus makes an instrument of his own appearance and personality...
In the formulas of ‘personnel experts’, men and women are to be shaped into the ‘well rounded, acceptable, effective personality’ (to close the deal or to make the sale)...
The personality market, the most decisive effect and symptom of the great salesroom, underlies the all-pervasive distrust and self-alienation so characteristic of a metropolitan people. Without common values and mutual trust, the cash nexus that links one man to another in transient contact has been made subtle in a dozen ways, and made to bite deeper into all areas of life and relations People are required by the salesman ethic and convention to pretend interest in others in order to manipulate them...
Men are estranged from one another as each secretly tries to make an instrument of the other, and in time a full circle is made: one makes an instrument of himself and is estranged from it also."
Diogenes said, "The art of being a slave is to rule one's master.”
He also said, “I know nothing, except the fact of my ignorance.”
And, “He has the most who is content with the least.”
Socialism is an ~ism, a sadistic school of thought whose devotees are bewitched by their vainglory. It is characterized by intense centralized planning… and top-down… hierarchical control… of their lessers – who themselves are compartmentalized by their access to information (military-style)… on a need-to-know basis… and by their level of conditioning… to the fashionable dictums… of the day.
The model for socialist organization is the corporation. A kissin’ cousin of socialism is syndicalism – a school of thought which asserts that every formerly free-thinking [wo-]man must assign him- or herself to a collectivist group… and affix to one’s self… a label. Much like the cattleman brands his beeves with a hot iron; or a pet owner collars her pet dog or cat… and tags it with a stamp of obedience…
… A syndicalist is a trade unionist… or a member of a trade association. They are…
·Public school teachers/college and university professors
·US military personnel
·Law enforcement personnel
·Doctors, nurses, hospital administrators and their staffs
·Lawyers, attorneys, counselors-at-law, judges, politicians, and their staffs
… The pillars of our communities. Communitarians!*
Remember: You are not what you think. You’re not what you say. You are what you do!
So ask yourself. Are these folks independent? Are they any longer possessive of free will (freedom of choice)? Do they have their liberty (locomotion, the capability of movement from one point to another, of their own power and volition)?
In 1847 the London Communist League (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels) used Hegel’s theory of the dialectic to back up their economic theory of communism. Now, in the 21st century, Hegelian-Marxist thinking affects our entire social and political structure. The Hegelian dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution. If we do not understand how the Hegelian dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement the vision. When we remain locked into dialectical thinking, we cannot see out of the box.
"Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology we are playing a necessary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance humanity into a dictatorship of the proletariat. The synthetic Hegelian solution to all these conflicts can’t be introduced unless we all take a side that will advance the agenda. The Marxist’s global agenda is moving along at breakneck speed. The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic. This releases us from the limitations of controlled and guided thought.”
And out of the ashes of defeat will rise a triumphant Phoenix—their New World Order?
