Human Nature, Moral Reasoning

What do the masters of Mankind WANT?

What drives the elite, variously called the New World Order, the One Percent or the Anglo-American Empire?

“Oil” is a common answer. But why do they want oil? To get money. But why do they want money? Stupid question, everybody wants money.

Indeed, that is a common desire; everybody wants money. But money is not an end in itself, which is why merely accumulating money for money’s sake is more of a debilitating disease than a worthy goal. It is a quest that can never satisfy because there will never be ENOUGH money.

“How much money is enough?” “Just a little bit more.”-John D. Rockefeller

What is money, really? Money is portable power. The Masters of the Universe want power and money is one source of power. Why do they want power? Power is “the ability to act”-surely we all want that. Freedom is a good thing. If you had ten billion dollars would you travel the world and eat in nice restaurants and pursue your hobbies?

But some want more than the ability to act-they want to control the actions of others, which inevitably will reduce the other’s freedom.

This seems unfair-how to justify it? From the time of Plato, who said,  “…justice consists in the superior ruling over and having more than the inferior,” and probably before, the justification has been that some people ARE BETTER than others and the superior should lord over the inferior. This is the justification used by aristocrats, intelligensia, British Imperialists, American Exceptionalists, Bolsheviks, NeoCons, and the One Percenters.

We are superior and we should rule. You are inferior and you should submit.

This same old song reappears down through history, with slight variations on the theme. Don’t think the tune isn’t playing today. Trickle-down economics, The Job Creators vs the lazy masses, the NeoCon Vanguard vs the soft, effeminate public…the New World Order vs everybody else.

You can’t be a Master of Mankind without human subjects.

“All for ourselves and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.” -Adam Smith

Dear Elite,

I reject your assertion that you are superior to the rest of us. Therefore, I reject your justification for ruling over the rest of us.

Go enjoy your wealth, buy stuff, throw parties, drive luxurious cars-BUT GET OFF OUR BACKS-or one day, count on it, we will shove our pitchforks up your pampered arses.

Best Wishes,
