Is our species inherently “good” or “bad”?

At the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the social darwinists “informed” us that a “survival of the fittest” mentality rules us.

That “self-interest” is the highest moral order of the human species.

In otherwords, it was a competitive “me-first” world, and that you’d better be nasty to get what you want out of it.

Conveniently, the same people promoting this mind-set essentially controlled all the industrialized societies of the world at that time.

These people tended to be titans of banking, commerce, and industry, and well-heeled economists, politicians, and church leaders.

In otherwords, the ruling elite.

And so people “bought it”.

The masses became…. what they were told they were.

And by and large, the masses still do.



Why are we so susceptible to manipulation?

Because our brains evolved as we lived in small packs of hunters and gatherers over the eons, and they are STILL primally wired to “trust” and “like” those we ‘think” we know.

Yet 99.999% of us will never even physically meet these people we think we know, as they are presented to us only electronically and through print media.

Until we understand our primal nature, we will never be truly free.

The ruling elite, and their operatives,  fully UNDERSTAND it.



“The State never intentionally confronts a man’s sense, intellectual or moral, but only his body, his senses. It is not armed with superior wit or honesty, but with superior physical strength. I was not born to be forced. I will breathe after my own fashion. Let us see who is the strongest.”

Ted Kaczynski A.K.A. “The Unabomber”

“Every man of genius sees the world at a different angle from his fellows, and there is his tragedy.” – Havelock Ellis, British psychologist (1859-1939)

From Kaczynski’s “Industrial Society and Its Future” (1995): “Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy, then gives them the drugs to take away their unhappiness. Science fiction? It is already happening to some extent in our own society. It is well known that the rate of clinical depression had been greatly increasing in recent decades. We believe that this is due to disruption of the power process.

The entertainment industry serves as an important psychological tool of the system, possibly even when it is dishing out large amounts of sex and violence. Entertainment provides modern man with an essential means of escape. While absorbed in television, videos, etc., he can forget stress, anxiety, frustration, dissatisfaction.”

“The big problem is that people don’t believe a revolution is possible, and it is not possible precisely because they do not believe it is possible. To a large extent I think the eco-anarchist movement is accomplishing a great deal, but I think they could do it better… The real revolutionaries should separate themselves from the reformers… And I think that it would be good if a conscious effort was being made to get as many people as possible introduced to the wilderness. In a general way, I think what has to be done is not to try and convince or persuade the majority of people that we are right, as much as try to increase tensions in society to the point where things start to break down. To create a situation where people get uncomfortable enough that they’re going to rebel. So the question is how do you increase those tensions?”
