The Eternal Truth is precisely the reason I often contemplate Utopian visions for mankind. I observe the status quo and ponder why man has elected to create structures that essentially enslave himself rather than structures that free himself. The primary example is the man-made concept we call economics.
Economics at its core is really quite simple — human beings work together to provide each other with food, clothing, shelter, entertainment, and other things we may want or need including free time to ourselves for individual fulfillment. Human beings working together can create almost anything we can imagine, need, or want. We are unique relative to the animal kingdom on planet earth.
But the concept of economics is corrupted by a few bad apples that use it as a means to hoard more power and riches for themselves. They view the vast majority of human beings as subjects, pawns, puppets, and fools to be brainwashed, exploited, controlled, and enslaved. They don’t view children as precious sparks of fire that can transform the world. They don’t view human energy and the application of that energy as the most valuable aspect of human potential.
Instead, they set out to burn human energy for their own ends leaving the vast majority in a pile of human waste. Such men have always been in existence. They essentially embody our primal instincts we needed to survive before we emerged from the jungle. They are gluttonous whores subject to, controlled from, and consumed by their dark side. No light can penetrate their cold steel souls. The skyscraper is the symbol of their control, inner being, and what they stand for.
I find it remarkable that the few can enslave and condemn the majority to a life of slavery masked as something else. Structures should be created to render such men powerless, but the momentum leads to the perpetual cycle where young people are subject to the old. The cycle can’t be broken as huge populations with watered down education continue to emerge as new subjects for the few. As such, so much energy is burnt to no end other than for the benefit of a few shrewd men. Those that understand they are slaves must expend enormous amounts of energy just to get short breaths of freedom.
The unfortunate result is that humanity takes its form and shape from the few bad apples. Imagine if you can the forms and shapes we could take if we created structures that leveled men consumed by their primal dark sides? Imagine what we could create and how we could live if we removed our own chains? But this is nothing but a fantasy. The majority would have to understand and believe in the Eternal Truth. For belief in the Eternal Truth removes most of the contraptions used by the few to entrap and enslave the many.
