The Global Political Awakening and the New World Order
June 2 ! 2010

There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume and it is greatest threat to all global power structures! the "global political awakening#$ The term was coined by "bi#niew $r%e%ins&i and re%ers to the %act that as &r'e'inski wrote!

(or the %irst time in history almost all o% humanity is politically activated politically conscious and politically interactive# Global activism is generating a surge in the quest %or cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world scarred by memories o% colonial or imperial dominat

,t is in essence this massive "global political awakening$ which presents the gravest and greatest challenge to the organi'ed powers o% globali'a the global political economy! nation-states multinational corporations and banks central banks international organi'ations military intelligence media and academic institutions#

The Transnational Capitalist Class .T//0 or "1uperclass$ as 'avid Roth&o(f re%ers to them are globali'ed like never be%ore#

What is the Global Political Awakening?


To answer this question, it is best to let Zbigniew r!e!ins"i spea" for himself, since it is his term.

#n $%%&, Zbigniew r!e!ins"i published an article based on a speech he delivered to the 'ondon-based (hatham )ouse in their academic *ourna #nternational +ffairs. (hatham )ouse, formerly the ,oyal #nstitute of #nternational ,elations, is the ritish counterpart to the -.-based ,elations, both of which were founded in /&$/ as 0.ister #nstitutes1 to coordinate +nglo-+merican foreign policy. )is article, 02a*or foreign policy challenges for the ne3t -. 4resident,1 aptly analy!es the ma*or geopolitical challenges for the Obama leading the global hegemonic state at this critical *uncture. r!e!ins"i refers to the 5global political awa"ening6 as 0a truly transformative event on scene,1 since7

8or the first time in human history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive. There are only a fe of humanity left in the remotest corners of the world that are not politically alert and engaged with the political turmoil and stirrings that are so wid today around the world. The resulting global political activism is generating a surge in the quest for personal dignity, cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world scarred by memories of centuries-long alien colonial or imperial domination.9$:

r!e!ins"i posits that the 5global political awa"ening6 is one of the most dramatic and significant developments in geopolitics that has ever occurr 0is apparent in radically different forms from #raq to #ndonesia, from olivia to Tibet.1 +s the ;conomist e3plained,

0Though +merica has focused on its notion of what people want (democracy and the wealth created by free trade and open mar"ets), r!e! points in a different direction7 #t<s about dignity.1 8urther, argues r!e!ins"i, 0The worldwide yearning for human dignity is the central challenge inherent in the phenomenon of global political awa"ening.1

#n $%%=, r!e!ins"i wrote an essay for The +merican #nterest entitled, 0The >ilemma of the 'ast .overeign,1 in which he e3plains the geopolitical landscape that +merica and the world find themselves in. )e wrote that,

08or most states, sovereignty now verges on being a legal fiction,1 and he critically assessed the foreign policy ob*ectives and rhetoric of the ush administration.

r!e!ins"i has been an ardent critic of the 0war on terror1 and the rhetoric inherent in it, namely that of the demoni!ation of #slam and 2uslim peo which constitute one of the fastest growing populations and the fastest growing religion in the world. r!e!ins"i fears the compound negative affects this can have on +merican foreign policy and the ob*ectives and aspirations of global power. )e writes7

+merica needs to face squarely a centrally important new global reality7 that the world<s population is e3periencing a political awa"ening unprecedented in scope and intensity, with the result that the politics of populism are transforming the politics of power. The need to respond that massive phenomenon poses to the uniquely sovereign +merica an historic dilemma7 ?hat should be the central definition of +merica<s global role@9A:

r!e!ins"i e3plains that formulating a foreign policy based off of one single event - the .eptember //th terror attac"s - has both legitimi!ed illegal measures (torture, suspension of habeas corpus, etc) and has launched and pacified citi!ens to accepting the 0global war on terror,1 a war withou The rhetoric and emotions central to this global foreign policy created a wave of patriotism and feelings of redemption and revenge. Thus, r!e!ins"i e3plains7

There was no need to be more precise as to who the terrorists actually were, where they came from, or what historical motives, religious passions or political grievances had focused their hatred on +merica. Terrorism thus replaced .oviet nuclear weapons as the principal threa and terrorists (potentially omnipresent and generally identified as 2uslims) replaced communists as the ubiquitous menace.9=:

r!e!ins"i e3plains that this foreign policy, which has inflamed anti-+mericanism around the world, specifically in the 2uslim world, which was th target population of 5terrorist6 rhetoric, has in fact further inflamed the 5global political awa"ening6. r!e!ins"i writes that7

[T]he central challenge of our time is posed not by global terrorism, but rather by the intensifying turbulence caused by the phenomenon of g political awakening. That awakening is socially massive and politically radicalizing.[6]

This global political awakening , !rzezinski writes, while uni"ue in its global scope today, originates in the ideas and actions of the #rench $evol which was central in %transforming modern politics through the emergence of a socially powerful national consciousness.& !rzezinski e'plains the evolution of the awakening ( )uring the subse"uent *+6 years, political awakening has spread gradually but ine'orably like an ink blot.

,urope of +-.-, and more generally the nationalist movements of the late +/th and early *0th centuries, reflected the new politics of populist passions and growing mass commitment. 1n some places that combination embraced utopian 2anichaeism for which the !olshevik $evolut +/+3, the #ascist assumption of power in 1taly in +/**, and the 4azi seizure of the 5erman state in +/66 were the launch7pads.

The political awakening also swept 8hina, precipitating several decades of civil conflict. 9nti7colonial sentiments galvanized 1ndia, where the tactic of passive resistance effectively disarmed imperial domination, and after :orld :ar 11 anti7colonial political stirrings elsewhere ended t remaining ,uropean empires.

1n the western hemisphere, 2e'ico e'perienced the first inklings of populist activism already in the +-60s, leading eventually to the 2e'ican $evolution of the early *0th century.[3]

;ltimately, what this implies is that 7 regardless of the final results of past awakenings 7 what is central to the concept of a political awakening is population 7 the people 7 taking on a political and social consciousness and subse"uently, partaking in massive political and social action aimed a generating a ma<or shift and change, or revolution, in the political, social and economic realms.

Thus, no social transformation presents a greater or more direct challenge to entrenched and centralized power structures 7 whether they are pol social or economic in nature. !rzezinski goes on to e'plain the evolution of the global political awakening in modern times(

1t is no overstatement to assert that now in the *+st century the population of much of the developing world is politically stirring and in many place seething with unrest. 1t is a population acutely conscious of social in<ustice to an unprecedented degree, and often resentful of its perceived lack dignity.

The nearly universal access to radio, television and increasingly the 1nternet is creating a community of shared perceptions and envy that can be galvanized and channeled by demagogic political or religious passions. These energies transcend sovereign borders and pose a challenge both states as well as to the e'isting global hierarchy, on top of which 9merica still perches.[-]

!rzezinski e'plains that several central areas of the global political awakening , such as 8hina, 1ndia, ,gypt, !olivia, the 2uslims in the 2iddle , 9frica, =outheast 9sia and increasingly in ,urope, as well as 1ndians in >atin 9merica,

%increasingly are defining what they desire in reaction to what they perceive to be the hostile impact on them of the outside world. 1n differing ways and degrees of intensity they dislike the status "uo, and many of them are susceptible to being mobilized against the e'ternal power th they both envy and perceive as self7interestedly preoccupied with that status "uo.& !rzezinski elaborates on the specific group most affected by this awakening(

The youth of the Third :orld are particularly restless and resentful. The demographic revolution they embody is thus a political time7bomb, a well. :ith the e'ception of ,urope, ?apan and 9merica, the rapidly e'panding demographic bulge in the *@7year7old7and7under age bracket creating a huge mass of impatient young people.

Their minds have been stirred by sounds and images that emanate from afar and which intensify their disaffection with what is at hand. Thei potential revolutionary spearhead is likely to emerge from among the scores of millions of students concentrated in the often intellectually dubious Atertiary levelA educational institutions of developing countries.

)epending on the definition of the tertiary educational level, there are currently worldwide between -0 and +60 million AcollegeA students. Typically originating from the socially insecure lower middle class and inflamed by a sense of social outrage, these millions of students are revolutionaries7in7waiting, already semi7mobilized in large congregations, connected by the 1nternet and pre7positioned for a replay on a larg scale of what transpired years earlier in 2e'ico 8ity or in Tiananmen ="uare. Their physical energy and emotional frustration is <ust waiting to be triggered by a cause, or a faith, or a hatred.[/]

!rzezinski thus posits that to address this new global %challenge& to entrenched powers, particularly nation7states that cannot sufficiently address increasingly non7pliant populations and populist demands, what is re"uired, is %increasingly supranational cooperation, actively promoted by the ; =tates.& 1n other words, !rzezinski favors an increased and e'panded internationalization , not surprising considering he laid the intellectual foundations Trilateral 8ommission. Be e'plains that %)emocracy per se is not an enduring solution,& as it could be overtaken by %radically resentful populism.& This is truly a new global reality(

Politically awakened mankind craves political dignity, which democracy can enhance, but political dignity also encompasses ethnic or nation self-determination, religious self-definition, and human and social rights, all in a world now acutely aware of economic, racial and ethnic inequities.

The quest for political dignity, especially through national self-determination and social transformation, is part of the pulse of self-assertion b world's underprivileged.[ !" Thus, writes #r$e$inski, %&n effective response can only come from a self-confident &merica genuinely committed to a new vision of global solidarity.'

The idea is that to address the grievances caused by globali$ation and global power structures, the world and &merica must e(pand and institutio the process of globali$ation, not simply in the economic sphere, but in the social and political as well. )t is a flawed logic, to say the least, that the to this problem is to enhance and strengthen the systemic problems. *ne cannot put out a fire by adding fuel. #r$e$inski even wrote that,

%+et it be said right away that supranationality should not be confused with world government. ,ven if it were desirable, mankind is not remo ready for world government, and the &merican people certainly do not want it.' )nstead, #r$e$inski argues, &merica must be central in constructing a system of global governance, %in shaping a world that is defined less by the fiction of state sovereignty and more by the reality of e(panding and politically regulated interdependence.'[ "

)n other words, not -global government. but -global governance., which is simply a rhetorical ploy, as -global governance. - no matter how overlapp sporadic and desultory it presents itself, is in fact a key step and necessary transition in the moves toward an actual global government.

Thus, the rhetoric and reality of a %global war on terror' in actuality further inflames the -global political awakening. as opposed to challenging and addressing the issue. )n /!!0, #r$e$inski told the 12 2enate that the %3ar on terror' was a %mythical historical narrative,'[
/"

or in other words, a complete fiction.

Of Power and People

To properly understand the -global political awakening. it is imperative to understand and analy$e the power structures that it most gravely threate is #r$e$inski speaking so vociferously on this sub4ect5 6rom what perspective does he approach this issue5

7lobal power structures are most often represented by nation-states, of which there are over /!! in the world, and the vast ma4ority are overlook increasingly politically awakened populations who are more shaped by transnational communications and realities 8such as poverty, inequality, w empire, etc.9 than by national issues.

&mong nation-states, the most dominant are the western powers, particularly the 1nited 2tates, which sits atop the global hierarchy of nations as global hegemon 8empire9. &merican foreign policy was provided with the imperial impetus by an inter-locking network of international think tanks, bring together the top political, banking, industrial, academic, media, military and intelligence figures to formulate coordinated policies.

The most notable of these institutions that sociali$e elites across national borders and provide the rationale and impetus for empire are an inter-lo network of international think tanks.

)n :/ , #ritish and &merican elite academics got together with ma4or international banking interests to form two %sister institutes' called the ;oy of )nternational &ffairs 8;))&9 in +ondon, now known as <hatham =ouse, and the <ouncil on 6oreign ;elations in the 1nited 2tates. 2ubsequent related think tanks were created in <anada, such as the <anadian )nstitute of )nternational &ffairs, now known as the Council 8<)<9, and other affiliated think tanks in 2outh &frica, )ndia, &ustralia, and more recently in the ,uropean 1nion with the formation of the <ouncil on 6oreign ;elations.[ >"

6ollowing 3orld 3ar ), these powers sought to reshape the world order in their designs, with 3oodrow 3ilson proclaiming a right to %national sel determination' which shaped the formation of nation-states throughout the ?iddle ,ast, which until the war was dominated by the *ttoman ,mpi

Thus, proclaiming a right to %self-determination' for people everywhere became, in fact, a means of constructing nation-state power structures wh western nations became not only instrumental in building, but in e(erting hegemony over. To control people, one must construct institutions of co @ations like )raq, 2audi &rabia, Aordan, +ebanon, 2yria, Buwait, etc., did not e(ist prior to 3orld 3ar ).

,lites have always sought to control populations and individuals for their own power desires. )t does not matter whether the political system is tha fascism, communism, socialism or democracyC elites seek power and control and are inherent in each system of governance.

)n :/D, Edward Bernays, nephew of the father of psychoanalysis 2igmund 6reud, wrote one of his most influential works entitled %Propaganda

Bernays also wrote the book on Public Relations, and is known as the father of public relations, and few outside of that area know of Bernays; his effect on elites and social control has been profound and wide-ranging.

Bernays led the propaganda effort behind the !"# $%& coup in 'uate(ala, fra(ing it as a liberation fro( $o((unis( when in fact it was the i of a decades-long dictatorship to protect the interests of the )nited *ruit $o(pany, who had hired Bernays to (anage the (edia ca(paign again de(ocratic socialist govern(ent of 'uate(ala.

Bernays also found a fan and student in +osef 'oebbels, ,itler-s .inister of Propaganda, who took (any of his ideas fro( Bernays- writings. &( of Bernays- (ore infa(ous pro/ects was the populari0ing of s(oking for &(erican wo(en, as he hired beautiful wo(en to walk up and down .a &venue while s(oking cigarettes, giving wo(en the idea that s(oking is synony(ous with beauty. %n his !12 book, Propaganda, Bernays wrote that,

Abigniew Br0e0inski, an up-and-co(ing acade(ic, /oined the $ouncil on *oreign Relations in the early !@Bs. %n !CB, Br0e0inski, who had atten few Bilderberg (eetings, wrote a book entitled, Between 4wo &ges - &(ericaDs Role in the 4echnetronic 9ra, in which he analy0ed the i(pact o ERevolution in 4echnology and 9lectronics,- thus, the Etechnetronic era.Br0e0inski defines the Etechnetronic society- as,

a society that is shaped culturally, psychologically, socially, and econo(ically by the i(pact of technology and electronics - particularly in th arena of co(puters and co((unications. 4he industrial process is no longer the principal deter(inant of social change, altering the (ores, social structure, and the values of society.5 C6 Br0e0inski, e?panding upon notions of social control, such as those propagated by 9dward Bernays, wrote that,

,u(an conduct, so(e argue, can be predeter(ined and sub/ected to deliberate control, and he Fuoted an e?peri(enter in intelligence control who asserted that, % foresee the ti(e when we shall have the (eans and therefore, inevitably, the te(ptation to (anipulate the beh and intellectual functioning of all the people through environ(ental and bioche(ical (anipulation of the brain.5 26 Br0e0inski, in a telling e?posG of his astute powers of observation and ability to identify (a/or global trends, wrote that we are,

witnessing the e(ergence of transnational elites who are co(posed of international business(en, scholars, professional (en, and public officials. 4he ties of these new elites cut across national boundaries, their perspectives are not confined by national traditions, and their inter are (ore functional than national. *urther, writes Br0e0inski,

it is likely that before long the social elites of (ost of the (ore advanced countries will be highly internationalist or globalist in spirit and outl ,owever, warns Br0e0inski, this increasing internationali0ation of elites, could create a dangerous gap between the( and the politically activated (asses, whose Enativis(- - e?ploited by (ore nationalist political leaders - could work against the Ecos(opolitan- elites.5 !6 Br0e0inski also wrote about the gradual appearance of a (ore controlled and directed society, in the technetronic revolution; e?plaining3

Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how. Unhinde by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques fo influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Under such circumstances, the scientific and technological momentum of the country would not be reversed but would actually feed on the situation it exploits.[ !" #urther, writes $r%e%inski,

&'ersisting social crisis, the emergence of a charismatic personality, and the exploitation of mass media to obtain public confidence would b steppingstones in the piecemeal transformation of the United States into a highly controlled society.( )laborating, $r%e%inski writes,

&*he traditionally democratic +merican society could, because of its fascination with technical efficiency, become an extremely controlled so and its humane and individualistic qualities would thereby be lost.([ ,"

-n his book, $r%e%inski called for a &.ommunity of the /eveloped 0ations,( consisting of 1estern )urope, 0orth +merica and 2apan, to coordinat integrate in order to shape a 3new world order4 built upon ideas of global governance under the direction of these transnational elites.

-n ,56 , $r%e%inski and his friend, David Rockefeller, presented the idea to the annual $ilderberg meetings. 7ockefeller was, at that time, .hair the .ouncil on #oreign 7elations and was .)8 of .hase 9anhattan $ank. -n ,56:, $r%e%inski and 7ockefeller created the *rilateral .ommissio of sister institute to the $ilderberg ;roup, with much cross-over membership, bringing 2apan into the western sphere of economic and political in

-n ,56<, the *rilateral .ommission published a *ask #orce 7eport entitled, &*he .risis of /emocracy,( of which one of the principal authors was Huntington, a political scientist and close associate and friend of =bigniew $r%e%inski. -n this report, >untington argues that the ,5?!s saw a surge in democracy in +merica, with an upswing in citi%en participation, often, &in the form of marches, demonstrations, protest movements, and 3cause4 organi%ations.([ #urther, &the ,5?!s also saw a reassertion of the primacy of equality as a goal in social, economic, and political life.([

Huntington, in his conclusion, stated that the vulnerability of democracy, essentially the crisis of democracy, comes from,

a highly educated, mobilized, and participant society, and that what is needed is a more balanced existence in which there are desirable limits to the indefinite extension of political democracy. !"#

$ummed up, the %rilateral &ommission %as' (orce )eport essentially explained that the &risis of *emocracy is that there is too much of it, and solution to the crisis is to have less democracy and more authority.

The New World Order

(ollowing the collapse of the $oviet +nion in ,--,, .merican ideologues / politicians and academics / began discussing the idea of the emergen new world order in which power in the world is centralized with one power / the +nited $tates, and laid the basis for an expansion of elitist ideol pertaining to the notion of globalization0 that power and power structures should be globalized. 1n short, the new world order was to be a global order of global governance. 1n the short term, it was to be led by the +nited $tates, which must central and primary actor in constructing a new world order, and ultimately a global government. !,#

Anne-Marie Slaughter, currently the Director of Policy Planning for the US State Department, is a prominent academic within the .merican elite establishment, having long served in various posts at the $tate *epartment, elite universities and on the board of the &ouncil on (oreign )elation

The Global Political Awakening and the Global conomic !risis

(n the face of the global economic crisis, the process that has led to the global political awa#ening is rapidly expanding, as the social, political and economic ine>ualities and disparities that led to the awa#ening are all being exacerbated and expanded. Thus, the global political awa#ening itself is entering into a period in which it will undergo rapid, expansionary and global transformation.

This ;global political awa#ening4, of which :r6e6ins#i has explained as being one of the primary global geopolitical challenges of today, has largel recent times, been exemplified in the ;0lobal .outh4, or the ;Third $orld4 developing nations of the 1iddle 'ast, &entral and .outheast Asia, Afric Aatin America.

The %est and the Awakening


3he middle classes of the western world are undergoing a dramatic transition, most especially in the wake of the global economic crisis

In the previous decades, the middle class has become a debt-based class, whose consumption was based almost entirely on debt, and so their a consume and be the social bedrock of the capitalist system is but a mere fiction 6ever in history has the middle class, and most especially the y are graduating college into the hardest &ob market in decades, been in such peril ;<"=

3he global debt crisis, which is beginning in 8reece, and spreading throughout the 1uro-zone economies of .pain, $ortugal, Ireland and ultimate entire 1/, will further consume the /K, Lapan and go all the way to )merica ;0(=

3his will be a truly global debt crisis 8overnment measures to address the issue of debt focus on the implementation of 5fiscal austerity measure reduce the debt burdens and make interest payments on their debts 5Discal austerity% is a vague term that in actuality refers to cutting social spending and increasing taxes

The effect this has is that the public sector is devastated, as all assets are privatized, public workers are fired en masse, unemployment becomes rampant, health and education disappear, taxes rise dramatically, and currencies are devalued to make all assets cheaper for international corpo and banks to buy up, while internally causing inflation - dramatically increasing the costs of fuel and food.

In short, fiscal austerity implies social destruction as the social foundations of nations and peoples are pulled out from under them. !tates then despotic and oppress the people, who naturally revolt against austerity " the sterilization of society.

#iscal austerity swept the developing world through the $%&'s and $%%'s in response to the $%&'s debt crisis which consumed (atin )merica, ) areas of )sia. The result of the fiscal austerity measures imposed upon nations by the *orld +ank and I,# was the social dismantling of the new and their subse-uent enslavement to the international creditors of the I,#, *orld +ank, and western corporations and banks. It was an era of economic imperialism, and the I,# was a central tool of this imperial pro.ect.

)s the debt crisis we see unfolding today sweeps the world, the I,# is again stepping in to impose fiscal austerity on nations in return for shortloans for countries to pay off the interest on their exorbitant debts, themselves owed mostly to ma.or /uropean and )merican banks.

*estern nations have agreed to impose fiscal austerity,01$2 which will in fact only inflame the crisis, deepen the depression and destroy the social foundations of the west so that we are left only with the authoritarian apparatus of state power - the police, military, homeland security apparatus is employed against people to protect the status -uo powers.

The I,# has also come to the global economic crisis with a new agenda, giving out loans in its own synthetic currency - !pecial 3rawing 4ights an international reserve basket of currencies. The 67' in )pril of 7''% granted the I,# the authority to begin phasing in the applications of issuin and for the I,# to in effect become a global central bank issuing a global currency.0172

!o through this global debt crisis, !34s will be disbursed globally - both efficiently and in abundance - as nations will need ma.or capital inflows a to pay off interest payments, or in the event of a default. This will happen at a pace so rapid that it would never be conceivable if not for a global e crisis. The same took place in the $%&'s, as the nature of 8!tructural )d.ustment 9rograms: 5!)9s; could not be properly assessed as detriment economic conditions and ultimately socially devastating, for countries needed money fast 5as the debt crisis spread across the developing world; not in a position to negotiate.

Today, this will be the globalization of the debt crisis of the $%&'s, on a much larger and more devastating scale, and the reaction will be e-ually globalized and devastating" the continued implementation of global governance .

)s austerity hits the west, the middle class will vanish in obscurity, as they will be absorbed into the lower, labour-oriented working class. the western middle class, comprising the ma.ority of the educated youth, will be exposed to a poverty of expectations in which they grew up in a which they were promised everything, and from whom everything was so -uickly taken. The inevitability of protests, riots and possible rebellion is as the sun rises.01<2

In the =nited !tates, the emergence of the Tea 9arty movement is representative of - in large part - a growing dissatisfaction with the governmen economy.

>aturally, like any group, it has its radical and fringe elements, which tend to draw the ma.ority of media attention in an effort to shape public opin the core and the driving force of the movement is the notion of popular dissatisfaction with government. *hatever one thinks of the legitimacy of protestations, people are not pleased, and people are taking to the streets. )nd so it begins.

/ven intellectuals of the left have spoken publicly warning people not to simply and so easily discount the Tea 9arty movement as fringe or radic

?ne such individual, Noam Chomsky, while speaking at a =niversity in )pril of 7'$', warned that he felt fascism was coming to )merica, and he explained that, 84idiculing the tea party shenanigans is a serious error,: as their attitudes 8are understandable.: @e explained,

8#or over A' years, real incomes have stagnated or declined. This is in large part the conse-uence of the decision in the $%B's to financializ economy.: This constitutes class resentment , as,

8The bankers, who are primarily responsible for the crisis, are now reveling in record bonuses while official unemployment is around $' perc and unemployment in the manufacturing sector is at 3epression-era levels.: This same financial industry is directly linked to ?bama, who is supporting their interests, and people are noticing.0112

)nother notable feminist intellectual of the left, Naomi Wolf, who wrote a book during the Bush administration on the emergence of fascism in ) and much of her message is being picked up by the Tea 9arty movement, as those on the right who were listening and agreeing with *olf during administration 5a considerable minority;, then provided the impetus for the emergence of the Tea 9arty movement and many of its core or origina In an interview in ,arch 7'$', *olf explained that her ideas are even more relevant under ?bama than +ush. !he explained,

say maybe because it is not yet a political entity; certainly, increasingly so, and visibly so, China; Russia, mainly in one respect only because a nuclear power co-equal to the United States, but otherwise very deficient in all of the major indices of what constitutes global power

!ehind Russia, perhaps individually, but to a much lesser e"tent, #ermany, $rance, #reat !ritain, %apan, certainly, although it does not hav political assertive posture; &ndia is rising, and then in the bac'ground of that we have the new entity of the #(), a much more diversified glob leadership, lac'ing internal unity, with many of its members in bilateral antagonisms *hat ma'es the conte"t much more complicated

*he other major change in international affairs is that for the first time, in all of human history, man'ind has been politically awa'ened *hat i total new reality - total new reality &t has not been so for most of human history until the last one hundred years +nd in the course of the las hundred years, the whole world has become politically awakened.

+nd no matter where you go, politics is a matter of social engagement, and most people 'now what is generally going on - generally going o the world, and are consciously aware of global inequities, inequalities, lac' of respect, e"ploitation ,an'ind is now politically awa'ened and stirring

*he combination of the two- the diversified global leadership, politically awa'ened masses, ma'es a much more difficult conte"t for any majo power including, currently, the leading world power- the United States ./01

Conclusion

So, the *echnological Revolution has led to a diametrically opposed, antagonistic, and conflicting geopolitical reality- never before has humanity awa'ened to issues of power, e"ploitation, imperialism and domination; and simultaneously, never before have elites been so transnational and g orientation, and with the ability to impose such a truly global system of scientific despotism and political oppression *hese are the two major geopolitical realities of the world today Reflect on that

2ever in all of human history has man'ind been so capable of achieving a true global political psycho-social awa'ening; nor has humanity ever b such danger of being subjected to a truly global scientific totalitarianism, potentially more oppressive than any system 'nown before, and without more technologically capable of imposing a permanent despotism upon humanity So we are filled with hope, but driven by urgency &n all of hum history, never has the potential nor the repercussions of human actions and ideas ever been so monumental

Suddenly, global elites are faced with the reality of see'ing to dominate populations that are increasingly becoming self-aware and are developin consciousness

*hus, a population being subjected to domination in +frica has the ability to become aware of a population being subjected to the same forms of domination in the ,iddle 3ast, South +merica or +sia; and they can recogni4e that they are all being dominated by the same global power struct is a 'ey point- not only is the awa'ening global in its reach, but in its nature; it creates within the individual, an awareness of the global condition So it is a 5global awa'ening6 both in the e"ternal environment, and in the internal psychology

Part 2
Revolution and Repression in America
June 29, 2010

Introduction

As outlined in Part 1 above of this series, The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom, there are two major geopolitical realities in toda , both largel brought about as a result of the Technological Revolution in which technolog and electronics have come to define and shap societ ! The Technological Revolution has led to a diametricall opposed, antagonistic, and conflicting geopolitical realit "

never before has humanit been so awa#ened to issues of power, e$ploitation, imperialism and domination% and simultaneousl , never befo have elites been so transnational and global in orientation, and with the abilit to impose such a trul global s stem of scientific despotism a political oppression!

These are the two major geopolitical realities of the world toda !

&ever in all of human histor has man#ind been so capable of achieving a true global political ps cho'social awa#ening% nor has humanit ever b such danger of being subjected to a trul global scientific totalitarianism, potentiall more oppressive than an s stem #nown before, and without more technologicall capable of imposing a permanent despotism upon humanit !

(o we are filled with hope, but driven b urgenc ! )n all of human histor , never has the potential nor the repercussions of human actions and ide been so monumental!

&ot onl is the awa#ening global in its reach, but in its ver nature! )t creates within the individual, an awareness of the global condition! (o it is a awa#ening+ both in the e$ternal environment, and in the internal ps cholog !

This new realit in the world, coupled with the fact that the world+s population has never been so vast, presents a challenge to elites see#ing to d people all over the world who are aware and awa#ened to the realities of social ine,ualit , war, povert , e$ploitation, disrespect, imperialism and domination! This directl implies that these populations will be significantl more challenging to control" economicall , politicall , sociall , ps chol and spirituall !

Thus, from the point of view of the global oligarch , the onl method of imposing order and control ' on this uni,ue and historical human condition through the organi-ed chaos of economic crises, war, and the rapid e$pansion and institutionali-ation of a global scientific dictatorship! .ur hope fear% and our greatest fear is their onl hope!

This essa /Part ))0 will underta#e an e$amination of these two geopolitical realities on a national scale, focusing primaril on the American Awa#

The American Awakening

)n the past decade, there has been an enormous surge in popular political activism, which has corresponded to the e$pansion of imperialism, e$p and despotism in the world! The events of (eptember 11th, 1221, spar#ed two major geopolitical events!

The first was the implementation of the 3ush 4octrine ' the 5ar on Terror ' which was organi-ed in response to the terrorist attac#s! This imper e$pansion led to the war and occupation of Afghanistan, the war on )ra, and subse,uent occupation, the war in 6ebanon in 1227, the war on (om continuing militar e$pansionism and imposition in the Palestinian territories, as well as e$pansive covert operations in the 8iddle 9ast, :entral A Africa and around the world!

The second major geopolitical trend instigated b the ;<11 attac#s was the formation of what has come to be #nown as the ;<11 Truth 8ovemen which millions of people around the world, including thousands of academics, architects, engineers, government officials, intelligence and militar

and other professionals, as well as an exponentially growing abundance of people in the general population internationally have sought to questi challenge the official accounts of the events of 9/11.

Like all activist groups, there are fringe and radical elements within the movement, those who claim that no planes! were used in the attacks, or attacks were undertaken by "srael # with anti#$emitic undertones # or other such fringe theories. %egardless of the fringe elements, the main focu movement is based around the fact that the official story of events does not stand up to any form of independent and unbiased, rational analysis.

&he media for years ignored the growing international movement, but only in recent years have acknowledged the movement' however, they did address the movement by analy(ing the information and issues, but rather by seeking to discredit and demoni(e the political movement, focusing fringe elements and beliefs and applying labels of conspiracy theorist,! attempting to discredit anyone who questions the official story.

"n )**+, &ime ,aga(ine acknowledged that the 9/11 &ruth ,ovement is not a fringe movement,! but is, in fact, a mainstream political reality.! & cited a ma-or political poll by $cripps#.oward in )**+, which revealed that /+0 of 1mericans think it is very likely! or somewhat likely! that gove officials either allowed the attacks to be carried out or carried out the attacks themselves.213

&he growth of this movement spurred on ma-or new movements and political activism, driven almost exclusively by organi(ed and 4politically awa civilians. 6riven largely by the "nternet, this movement has awakened a mass of people globally to the political and strategic reality of what is kno military terms # as a false flag operation!, in which an attack is carried out against a certain target, where those undertaking the attack fly the flag someone else 7i.e., false flag!8 in an effort to implicate them in the attack' and thus the response to an attack would be against the perceived atta "t is, essentially, a covert military stratagem9 a strategic deception. &he :reek dramatist and playwright Aeschylus wrote that, "n war, the first casualty is truth.!

1 false flag attack an act of war that is deliberately designed to deceive and hide the truth. "t is an attack carried out and blamed on one5s enemy to -ustify implementing a political agenda. :overnments have used such tactics for centuries, and especially western nations in the past half#century.2)3

&his movement has spawned an activist resurgence in other global issues, such as the global economic system, and most notably, the central ba system, particularly the ;ederal %eserve. <hile many 1mericans knew next to nothing about their central bank, the ;ederal %eserve, a growing m of 1mericans and others around the world were educating themselves about the ;ederal %eserve $ystem and the global banking system in gene

,any found a leader in a &exas =ongressman named Ron Paul, who campaigned on the %epublican ticket for >resident in )**?, and who drew widest grassroots support from across the nation of any %epublican candidates.

1mong 6emocrats, 9/11 &ruthers! and others critical of @$ foreign policy came to find a passionate leader in Cynthia McKinney lone voices in =ongress to directly challenge the Aush administration on the official version of events, and has challenged the election fraud in )* )**B, conducted a =ongressional hearing on covert activities in 1frica, exposing the hand of western nations behind the %wandan genocide and =ivil <ar.

"n late )**?, as the government began its financial bailout of the banks, the Cnd the ;ed! movement emerged in sporadic protests at the 1) ;ed %eserve Aanks located around the country, and over B* protests took place across the nation within a matter of months.2/3

The Homeland Security State Targets Dissenters


<ith the increasing militari(ation of foreign policy, we also see the increasing militari(ation of domestic politics, and most notably the emergence tech surveillance police state9 a .omeland $ecurity $tate.! Dational and international elites are in the process of incrementally constructing a 4new totalitarianism5 in replacing democracy.2B3

=ivil rights and freedoms are dismantled through anti#terrorist legislation, wiretapping and internet surveillance are rampant and expansive, watc are constructed, which often include the names of dissenters, and the military is increasingly poised to partake in policing. ;urther, over the past we have seen the rapid expansion of =ontinuity of :overnment! 7=E:8 plans, which plan for the suspension of the =onstitution and imposition o law in the event of an emergency.2F3

1t this point in 1merican society, if there was a rapid and expansive economic collapse or another ma-or terrorist attack on @$ soil, 1merica wou transform into a military government, more fascist in nature than anything' but equipped with an arsenal and technetronic! police state the likes o no dictator in history has had access to.

;reedom has never been so threatened' yet, people have never been so mobili(ed in modern history to challenge the threats to freedom and dem in 1merica, in the west, and in the world. 7$ee9 &he &ransnational .omeland $ecurity $tate and the 6ecline of 6emocracy8 "n )**/, :eneral Tommy Franks gave an interview with =igar 1ficionado maga(ine in which he elaborated on this concept.

In his interview with the magazine, Franks stated that the objective of terrorism is to change the mannerisms, the behavior, the sociology and, ul the anthropology of a society, and thus, in the event of another major terrorist attack in America or in the est!

the western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we"ve seen for a couple of hundred years in t grand e#periment that we call democracy$ %ow, in a practical sense, what does that mean&

It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive casualty'producing event somewhere in the western world ' may be in the (nited )tates of America ' that causes our population to *uestion our own +onstitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass'casualty'producing event$ hich, in fact, then begins to potentially unravel the fabric of our +onstitu
,-.

/ne interesting facet that very little is known about in the militarization of domestic society and incremental totalitarianism is how the coercive sta apparatus, while being justified under the guise of fighting terrorism or protecting the 0omeland, is in fact being directed against citizen activists popular political movements$

For e#ample, following 1233, the 4epartment of 0omeland )ecurity established what are known as Fusion +enters, set up all over the (nited ) which are designed as information sharing and collecting hubs, in which agencies like the +IA, F5I, 4epartment of 6ustice, 0omeland )ecurity () 7ilitary collect and analyze information together$ As of 6uly 8991, there were :8 acknowledged Fusion +enters around the (nited )tates$,:. ;hink of them as local surveillance centers, because that<s what they are$ Fusion +enters are also positioned to take part as local command centers in the event of a national emergency or implementation of +ontinuity =overnment plans to declare martial law$ )tate and local law enforcement agencies provide the majority of information to the local is then analyzed and disseminated to the major intelligence, military or 0omeland )ecurity departments and agencies$

0owever, in recent years, Fusion +enters have been criticized for their purported agenda, as they are justified on the basis of acting as centers d for counter'terrorism purposes, but in practice are directed against citizen groups$

In the spring of 8991, it was revealed that the 7issouri Information Analysis +enter >7IA+? ' a Fusion +enter ' had put out an information pamph designed to help law enforcement officials identify potential domestic terrorists$ According to the report! If you"re an anti'abortion activist, or if you display political paraphernalia supporting a third'party candidate or a certain @epublican member +ongress, if you possess subversive literature, you very well might be a member of a domestic paramilitary group$,A. hen did our society become something out of 31AB& hen did our governments designate subversive literature as a sign of terrorism&

;he report classified such activities as being part of a 7odern 7ilitia 7ovement, and further identified potential threats to American security as

Ceople who supported former third'party presidential candidates like ;e#as @ep$ @on Caul, +huck 5aldwin and former =eorgia @ep$ 5ob 5a are cited in the report, in addition to anti'abortion activists and conspiracy theorists who believe the (nited )tates, 7e#ico and +anada will someday form a %orth American (nion$,1.

In other words, those who are opposed to the political and economic process of %orth American integration,39. are seen and identified as poten members$

;he report even directly identified possession of such films like the anti'Federal @eserve film, America! Freedom to Fascism as potential signa militia involvement$,33. ;he document put out by the Fusion +enter further warned law enforcement officials to be on the lookout for bumper stickers advertising third candidates, or people with copies of the (nited )tates +onstitution$ ;he report wrote that due to the economic crisis, a lush environment for militia activity has been created, and!

It goes on to cite possible militia members as people who talk about the %ew orld /rder conspiracy, e#press anger with the Federal @eser banking system, resist paying ta#es, warn other citizens about the perceived dangers of radio fre*uency identification >@FI4? or lobby for a r to strict constitutionalism as possible threats to law enforcement$

hile the memo does offer something of a lopsided summary of many of the various groups which swelled enormously following the terroris attacks of )ept$ 33, 8993, it also links individuals who are otherwise peaceful with the Du Dlu# Dlan and other violent organizations$

Another Fusion +enter in Eirginia identified many universities as potential radicalization nodes for terrorists, singling out historically black colleg potential threats, and,

it also contains an e#tensive list of peaceful American and International activist groups from nearly all cross'sections of political engagemen placing them side'by'side with groups that have long been known for resorting to violence$,3F.

In April of 8991, the A+G( >American +ivil Giberties (nion? released a report on the threat to liberties and civil rights posed by the Fusion +enters that,

Fusion centers have experienced a mission creep in the last several years, becoming more of a threat than a security device.

It is a difficult balancing act for global powers - particularly the United States - to manage the integration of China into the new world order, while simultaneously both of them compete for control of global resources, located primarily in regions of the world which are experiencing the most ra extensive awa ening!

"he imperial mindset - li e that of #r$e$ins is - see s to rationali$e global power as being e%uated with global stability, and that without empire, only chaos! "hus, imperial logic dictates that &merica must see to dominate as much of the world as fast as possible, and hence control global resources, which will allow it to determine the terms of China and other powers inclusion in the new world order!

#ut these ma4or world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality. while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capa to impose control over the politically awa ened masses of the world is at a historic low!

"o put it bluntly. in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically ill one million people5 today, it is infinitely easie ill one million people than to control one million people!6718 In many peoples view of the global economic crisis, the problem was greed! -reed is not the problem, it is but a symptom of the disease that is power5 which, li e a cancer, expands and ills its host! /umanity is entering li ely be the most turbulent period in human history!

"he future is not yet written5 all that is certain is that everything will change! 'hat it comes down to is the greatest human struggle in the history o small little planet. the struggle of the worlds people - in every corner of the world, from every religion, race, ethnicity, ideology, language, sex, gender and variation - against a global power elite who control the most advanced, technological, and lethal tools of oppression every conceived! 9a e no mista e, we are not repeating history, we are ma ing it!

The Power of Ideas

)ur awa ening is the greatest threat to these global elites, and it is our only hope of protecting any notions of freedom, liberty, family, e%uality an individuality!

It is these notions that have led to and created the greatest developments and ideas in human history! /umanitys best is within these concepts, worst is within power! "he shame of humanity is within its systems of power, so for humanity to survive we must re-imagine and remodel our glob and global power!

'e cannot design a society for humanity without ta ing into consideration human nature! If you build it, they will come! If we eep creating positio great power, and continually globali$e power, it will attract exactly the wrong type of people to those positions of power. the ones that want it and abuse the power!

These structures are designed with the intent to mislead and misrepresent people, they are illegitimate and must be considered as such. We mus and understand each other on a human level: on ideas of freedom, liberty, family, equality and individually. To achieve that understanding, one re that freedom must be for all or none, that liberty is not to be selective, the importance of family, the necessity of equality and the acceptance and celebration of individuality. With that, peace is inevitable. With power, peace is impossible.

Just as elites seek to re imagine and recreate our world, we too, can do the same. This must begin with the human understanding, where we en new !enaissance or "nlightenment, not western, but global# where the people communicate and interact with each other on a personal basis, no elite structures.

This must be the aim of the global political awakening: to achieve peace through peaceful means. $f everyone in the world simply decided to no lo acknowledge people and positions of power, that power would vanish. $f there is no army, because the soldiers decided to no longer recognize th government, there is no one to pull the trigger on people in the street. $ think, therefore $ am. $f $ think $ am free, $ will become free.

%ut while an individual can do this, it does not work if everyone doesn&t do it. This requires all people, everywhere, to work together, talk together together, think together and act together. We can either do this now, or potentially be subdued for decades if not longer. $f we do not achieve glob and freedom for all people, if we do not understand each other, power will win, at least for a while.

What is important to note is that the emergence of a technetronic society reduces the need for people, as technology can watch, listen, control an people with the push of a button. We are also in danger of becoming a docile, tranquilized society, lost in drugs whether recreational or even mo notably, pharmaceutical. We must avoid entering into a 'brave new world&, and instead bravely construct a different world.

(rom the militarization of domestic society, it would appear as if we are moving into a world quite reminiscent of )eorge *rwell&s +,-. is divided into a few ma/or regional blocs that war against each other and terrorize their populations through acts of physical terror and total surve 01%ig %rother23.

This is but a phase and evolution into the final stage the grand idea or as 4ldous 5u6ley referred to it, 1The 7ltimate !evolution2: the global sc dictatorship. That will be the focus of the third and final part in this series.

6he greatest o+ h"-an -iser, and traged, has arisen o"t o+ the power str"ct"res and s,ste-s that elites alwa,s seeC to constr"ct and -anage. genocide% persec"tion and h"-an degradation are directl, the res"lt o+ decisions -ade b, those who control the apparat"s o+ power% whether th -ani+ests itsel+ as intellect"al% ecclesiastical% spirit"al% -ilitaristic% or scienti+ic. 6he -ost -alevolent and r"thless power is that over the +ree h"-an -ind: i+ one controls how one thinCs% the, control the individ"al itsel+.

6he greatest h"-an achieve-ents are where individ"als have broCen +ree the shacCles that bind the -ind and let loose the inherent and "ndenia power that lies in each and ever, individ"al on this s-all little planet.

6he awaCening will be +orced "pon all people all over the world. .othing% no develop-ent% ever in h"-an histor,% has posed s"ch a -on"-ental elite power str"ct"res.

6his awaCening is largel, driven b, the 6echnological #evol"tion% which thro"gh technolog, and electronics% in partic"lar -ass -edia and the *nt have -ade it so that people across the world are able to beco-e aware o+ global iss"es and gain access to in+or-ation +ro- aro"nd the world. 6he Technological Revolution% th"s% has +ostered an Information Revolution which has% in t"rn% +ed the global political awaCening.

4i-"ltaneo"sl,% the 6echnological #evol"tion has led to another "niJ"e and "nprecedented develop-ent in h"-an histor,% and one that is diaopposed% ,et directl, related to the global political awaCening.

'or the +irst ti-e in h"-an histor,% +ree h"-anit, is +aced with the do-inating threat o+ a tr"l, global elite% who have at their hands the technolog, i-pose a tr"l, global s,ste- o+ control: a global scienti+ic dictatorship. 6he great danger is that thro"gh the exponential growth in scienti+ic techni elites will "se these great new powers to control and do-inate all o+ h"-anit, in s"ch a wa, that has never be+ore been experienced.

6hro"gh all o+ h"-an histor,% t,rants have "sed coercive +orce and terror to control pop"lations. 5ith the 6echnological #evol"tion% elites increas have the abilit, to control the ver, biolog, and ps,cholog, o+ the individ"al to a point where it -a, not be necessar, to i-pose a s,ste- o+ terror rather where the control is i-ple-ented on a -"ch deeper% ps,chological% s"bli-inal and individ"al biological -anner.

5hile terror can prevent people +ro- opposing power +or a while% the scienti+ic dictatorship can create a personal ps,cho3social condition in whic individ"al co-es to love his or her own slaver,I in which% liCe a -entall, in+erior pet% the, are -ade to love their leaders and accept their servit"d

4o we are presented with a sit"ation in which h"-anit, is +aced with both the greatest threat and the greatest hope that we have ever collectivel, experienced in o"r short h"-an histor,.

6his essa,% the third part in the series% O6he 6echnological #evol"tion and the '"t"re o+ 'reedo-%P exa-ines the ideas behind the global scienti+i dictatorship% and how it -a, -ani+est itsel+ presentl, and in the +"t"re% with a partic"lar +oc"s on the e-ergence o+ Snew e"genicsB as a s,ste- o+ control.

course, as a science, founded upon individual psychology, but hitherto it has employed rule-of-thumb methods which were based upon a kin intuitive common sense. Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda.

Of these the most influential is what is called education. Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one the !ress, the cinema and the rad play an increasing part.

"hat is essential in mass psychology is the art of persuasion. If you compare a speech of #itlers with a speech of $say% &dmund 'urke, you see what strides have been made in the art since the eighteenth century. "hat went wrong formerly was that people had read in books that is a rational animal, and framed their arguments on this hypothesis.

"e now know that limelight and a brass band do more to persuade than can be done by the most elegant train of syllogisms. It may be hope that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the (tate with money e)uipment. *his sub+ect will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship.,-. Russell went on to analy/e the )uestion of whether a scientific dictatorship is more stable than a democracy, on which he postulated0

1part from the danger of war, I see no reason why such a regime should be unstable. 1fter all, most civili/ed and semi-civili/ed countries kn to history have had a large class of slaves or serfs completely subordinate to their owners. *here is nothing in human nature that makes the persistence of such a system impossible.

1nd the whole development of scientific techni)ue has made it easier than it used to be to maintain a despotic rule of a minority. "hen the government controls the distribution of food, its power is absolute so long as it can count on the police and the armed forces. 1nd their loyal can be secured by giving them some of the privileges of the governing class. I do not see how any internal movement of revolt can ever bring freedom to the oppressed in a modern scientific dictatorship.

2rawing on the concept populari/ed by 1ldous #u3ley - of people loving their servitude - 'ertrand Russell e3plained that under a scientific dictato

It is to be e3pected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they have even in totalitarian countries. 4ichte laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished...

2iet, in+ections, and in+unctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authoritie consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. &ven if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so.,5. Russell e3plained that, 6*he completeness of the resulting control over opinion depends in various ways upon scientific techni)ue. "here all children go to school, all schools are controlled by the government, the authorities can close the minds of the young to everything contrary to official orthodo3y.7 Russell later proclaimed in his book that, 6a scientific world society cannot be stable unless there is a world government.7,8. #e elaborated0

9nless there is a world government which secures universal birth control, there must be from time to time great wars, in which the penalty o defeat is widespread death by starvation. *hat is e3actly the present state of the world, and some may hold that there is no reason why it sh not continue for centuries. I do not myself believe that this is possible.

*he two great wars that we have e3perienced have lowered the level of civili/ation in many parts of the world, and the ne3t is pretty sure to achieve much more in this direction. 9nless, at some stage, one power or group of powers emerges victorious and proceeds to establish a s government of the world with a monopoly of armed force, it is clear that the level of civili/ation must continually decline until scientific warfare becomes impossible - that is until science is e3tinct.,:. Russell e3plains that eugenics plays a central feature in the construction of any world government scientific dictatorship, stating that,

6;radually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different specie revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organi/ed insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.7

Today, we are faced, I think, with the approach of what may be called the Ultimate Revolution - the Final Revolution - where man can act directly on the mind-body of his fellows !ell needless to say some kind of direct action on human mind-bodies has been "oin" on since the be"innin" of time, but this has "enerally been of a violent nature

The techni#ues of terrorism have been known from time immemorial, and people have employed them with more-or-less in"enuity, sometim with utmost crudity, sometimes with a "ood deal of skill ac#uired with a process of trial and error - findin" out what the best ways of usin" to imprisonments, constraints of various kinds

If you are "oin" to control any population for any len"th of time, you must have some measure of consent Its e$ceedin"ly difficult to see ho pure terrorism can function indefinitely, it can function for a fairly lon" time% but sooner or later you have to brin" in an element of persuasion element of "ettin" people to consent to what is happenin" to them

!ell it seems to me the nature of the Ultimate Revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this& that we are in process of developin" whole series of techni#ues, which will enable the controllin" oli"archy - who have always e$isted and will presumably always e$ist - to "et pe to love their servitude This is the ultimate in malevolent revolution

There seems to be a "eneral movement in the direction of this kind of Ultimate 'ontrol, this method of control, by which people can be made en(oy a state of affairs by which any decent standard they ou"ht not to en(oy% the en(oyment of servitude

I am inclined to think that the scientific dictatorships of the future - and I think there are "oin" to be scientific dictatorships in many parts of th world - will be probably a "ood deal nearer to the )rave *ew !orld pattern than to the +,-. pattern They will be a "ood deal nearer, not because of any humanitarian #ualms in the scientific dictators, but simply because the brave new world pattern is probably a "ood deal mo efficient than the other

That if you can "et people to consent to the state of affairs in which they are livin" - the state of servitude - if you can do this, then you are lik to have a much more stable, a much more lastin" society% much more easily controllable society than you would if you were relyin" wholly o clubs, and firin" s#uads and concentration camps /+01

The same foundations that laid the foundations for eugenic ideology - the belief in a biological superiority and right to rule (justifying their power) the foundations for these and other new social and scientific movements.

is to help the emergence of a single world culture" with its own philosophy and bac ground of ideas" and with its own broad purpose. This is opportune" since this is the first time in history that the scaffolding and the mechanisms for world unification have become available" and als first time that man has had the means (in the shape of scientific discovery and its applications) of laying a world-wide foundation for the mini physical welfare of the entire human species...#$*&

/t the moment" it is probable that the indirect effect of civilization is dysgenic instead of eugenic' and in any case it seems li ely that the dea weight of genetic stupidity" physical wea ness" mental instability" and disease-proneness" which already e.ist in the human species" will pro too great a burden for real progress to be achieved.

Thus even though it is ?uite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible" it will be important for 8nesco to see that the eugenic problem is e.amined with the greatest care" and that the public mind is informed of the issues a sta e so that much that now is unthin able may at least become thin able...#$@& +till another and ?uite different type of borderline subject is that of eugenics. ;t has been on the borderline between the scientific and the unscientific" constantly in danger of becoming a pseudo- science based on preconceived political ideas or on assumptions of racial or class superiority and inferiority.

;t is" however" essential that eugenics should be brought entirely within the borders of science" for" as already indicated" in the not very remo future the problem of improving the average ?uality of human beings is li ely to become urgent' and this can only be accomplished by apply the findings of a truly scientific eugenics...#$A&

;t is worth pointing out that the applications of science at once bring us up against social problems of various sorts. +ome of these are direct obvious. Thus the application of genetics in eugenics immediately raises the ?uestion of values- what ?ualities should we desire to encourag the human beings of the futureB#$)& :n page * of the 843+9: document" +ir ,ulian -u.ley wrote that"

(hile much of the language of e?uality and education sounds good and benevolent" it is based upon a particular view of humanity as an irrationa emotionally driven organism which needs to be controlled. Thus" the Eprinciple of e?uality0 becomes <The !act of ;ne?uality>=

!inally we come to a difficult problem-that of discovering how we can reconcile our principle of human e?uality with the biological fact of hum ine?uality... The democratic principle of e?uality" which is also 8nesco0s" is a principle of e?uality of opportunity-that human beings should b e?ual before the law" should have e?ual opportunities for education" for ma ing a living" for freedom of e.pression and movement and thoug The biological absence of e?uality" on the other hand" concerns the natural endowments of man and the fact of genetic difference in regard them.

There are instances of biological ine?uality which are so gross that they cannot be reconciled at all with the principle of e?ual opportunity. Th low-grade mental defectives cannot be offered e?uality of educational opportunity" nor are the insane e?ual with the sane before the law or i respect of most freedoms.

Many of these <genetic ine?ualities> revolve around the idea of intellectual superiority= the idea that there is no e?uality among the intellectually in superior.

That ine?uality is derived from human biology - from genetics' it is a <human fact.> ;t just so happens that elites who propagate this ideology" also to view the masses as intellectually inferior' thus" there can be no social e?uality in a world with a technological intellectual elite.

So eugenics must be employed, as the UENSCO paper explains, to address the issues of raising human welfare to a manageable level; that the come where elites will need to address the whole of humanity as a single force, and with a single voice Eugenics is about the social organi!ation control of humanity Ultimately, eugenics is about the engineering of ine"uality #n genetics, elites found a way to ta$e discrimination down to the %N&

Genetics as Eugenics
&ward'winning author and researcher, Edwin Black, wrote an authoritative history of eugenics in his boo$, ()ar &gainst the )ea$ that,

(the incremental effort to transform eugenics into human genetics forged an entire worldwide infrastructure,* with the founding of the #nstitute +uman ,enetics in Copenhagen in -./0, led by 1age 2emp, a 3oc$efeller 4oundation eugenicist, and was financed with money from the 3oc$efeller 4oundation 5667

#n a 688- issue of Science Magazine, Garland Allen, a scientific historian, wrote about genetics as a modern form of eugenics +e began by citi article in 1ime 9aga!ine which proclaimed that, (:ersonality, temperament, even life choices New studies show it;s mostly in your genes * ,arland explains the implications<

Coat'tailing on ma=or advances in genetic biotechnology, these articles portray genetics as the new >magic bullet> of biomedical science tha solve many of our recurrent social problems 1he implication is that these problems are largely a result of the defective biology of individuals even racial or ethnic groups

#f aggressive or violent behavior is in the genes, so the argument goes, then the solution lies in biomedical intervention ' gene therapy in the distant future and pharmacotherapy ?replacing the products of defective genes with drug substitutes@ in the immediate future Ay promoting such claims, are we heading toward a new version of eugenicsB &re we getting carried away with the false promise of a technological fix for problems that really lie in the structure of our societyB

9y answer to these "uestions is >yes,> but with some important "ualifications that derive from the different historical and social contexts of th early -.88s and the present

1he term eugenics was coined in -00/ by the Cictorian polymath 4rancis ,alton, geographer, statistician, and first cousin of Charles %arwin meant to him >truly' or well'born,> and referred to a plan to encourage the >best people> in society to have more children ?positive eugenics@ to discourage or prevent the >worst elements> of society from having many, if any, children ?negative eugenics@

have also been rampant in scientific and especially popular literature. Much of the evidence for such claims is as controversial today as in th past.

We seem to be increasingly unwilling to accept what we view as imperfection in ourselves and others. As health care costs skyrocket, we ar coming to accept a bottom-line, cost-benefit analysis of human life. This mind-set has serious implications for reproductive decisions. If a he maintenance organi ation !"M#$ re%uires in utero screening, and refuses to cover the birth or care of a purportedly &defective& child, how cl is this to eugenics'

If gene or drug therapy is substituted for improving our workplace or school environments, our diets and our e(ercise practices, how close is to eugenics' )ignificant social changes are e(pensive, however. If eugenics means making reproductive decisions primarily on the basis of social cost, then we are well on that road.*+,.enetics unleash an unprecedented power into human hands/ the power of unnatural creation and the manipulation of biology.

We do not yet fully understand nor comprehend the implications of genetic manipulation in our food, plants, animals, and in humans, themselves clear is that we are changing the very biology of our environment and ourselves in it. While there are many clear and obvious benefits to genetic technology, such as the ability to enhance ailing senses !sight, hearing, etc.$ and cure diseases, the positive must be e(amined and discussed w negative repercussions of genetic manipulation so as to better direct the uses of this powerful technology.

0ebates on issues such as stem-cell research and genetic manipulation often focus on a science versus religion aspect, where science seeks to benevolently cure mankind of its ailments and religion seeks to preserve the sanctity of 1creation2.

This is an irrational and narrow manner to conduct a real debate on this monumental issue, painting the issue as black and white, which it most c not. )cience can be used for good as well as bad, and human history, most especially that of the +3th century, is nothing if not evidence for that f Incredible scientific ingenuity went into the creation of great weapons4 the manipulation of the atom to kill millions in an instant, or the manufactur biological and chemical weapons.

The problem with the interaction of science and power is that with such great power comes the temptation to use and abuse it. If the ability to cre weapon like an atom bomb seems possible, most certainly there are those who seek to make it probable. Where there is temptation, there is hum weakness.

)o while genetics can be used for benevolent purposes and for the betterment of humankind, so too can it be used to effectively create a biologic system, where in time it would be feasible to see a break in the human race, where as human advancement technologies become increasingly a their use is reserved to the elite so that there comes a time where there is a biological separation in the human species. Oliver Curry, an evolutionary theorist from the 5ondon )chool of 6conomics predicted that,

7the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 83339 and that, 7The human race will one day split into two separate specie attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures.9*+:)uch was the plot of "... Wells2 classic book, 7The Time Machine,9 who was himself, a prominent eugenicist at the turn of the +3th would be a long time from now, its potential results from the decisions we make today.

Population Control as Eugenics

;ot only was the field of genetics born of eugenics, and heavily financed by the same monied-interests that seek social control4 but so too was th population control.

In environmental literature and rhetoric, one concept that has emerged over the years as playing a significant part is that of population control. <o is seen as an environmental issue because the larger the population, the more resources it consumes and land it occupies. In this concept, the m people there are the worse the environment becomes.

Thus, programs aimed at controlling population growth are often framed in an environmentalist lens. There is also a distinctly radical element in t which views population growth not simply as an environmental concern, but which frames people, in general, as a virus that must be eradicated i is to survive.

"owever, in the view of elites, population control is more about controlling the people than saving the environment. 6lites have always been draw population studies that have, in many areas, helped construct their worldview. =oncerns about population growth really took hold with the end of the >?th century. In >:@?, Malthus wrote a 7theory on the nature of poverty,9 and he,

7called for population control by moral restraint,9 citing charity as a promotion of 7generation-to-generation poverty and simply made no sens the natural scheme of human progress.9 Thus, the idea of 1charity2 became immoral. The eugenics movement attached itself to Malthus2 theory regarding the 7reAection of the value of helping the poor.9*+?-

The ideas of Malthus, and later "erbert )pencer and =harles 0arwin were remolded into branding an elite ideology of 7)ocial 0arwinism9, which

the notion that in the struggle to survive in a harsh world, many humans were not only less worthy, many were actually destined to wither aw as a rite of progress. To preserve the weak and the needy was, in essence, an unnatural act.[29] This theory simply ustified the immense wealth, power and domination of a small elite over the rest of humanity, as that elite saw themselves as truly intelligent !eings worthy of holding such power and privilege.

Francis Galton later coined the term eugenics to descri!e this emerging field. "is followers !elieved that the #genetically unfit$ would have to ! away, using tactics such as, segregation, deportation, castration, marriage prohi!ition, compulsory sterili%ation, passive euthanasia & and ultima e'termination.[()]

The actual science of eugenics was lacking e'tensive evidence, and ultimately *alton hoped to recast eugenics as a religious doctrine, which w taken on faith without proof.[(+] ,s the -uest to re&!rand eugenics was under way, a +9.( edition of /ugenical 0ews pu!lished an article titled /ugenics ,fter the 1ar, which Charles Davenport, a ma or founder and progenitor of eugenics, in his vision of, a new mankind of !iological castes with master races in control and slave races serving them.[(2] , +9.2 article in /ugenical 0ews stated that,

3opulation, genetics, [and] psychology, are the three sciences to which the eugenicist must look for the factual material on which to !uild an accepta!le philosophy of eugenics and to develop and defend practical eugenics proposals.[((]

4n the post&war period, emerging in the +95)s and going into the +92)s, the /uropean colonies were retracting as nations of the #Third 1orld$ we political independence. This reinforced support for population control in many circles, as,

6or those who !enefited most from the glo!al status -uo, population control measures were a far more palata!le alternative to ending Third 1orld poverty or promoting genuine economic development.[(.] 4n +952,

7ohn 8. 9ockefeller (rd convened a group of scientists to discuss the implications of the dramatic demographic change. They met in 1illiams!urg, :irginia, under the auspices of the 0ational ,cademy of ;ciences, and after two and a half days agreed on the need for a new institution that could provide solid science to guide governments and individuals in addressing population -uestions.[(5] That new institution was to !ecome the 3opulation <ouncil. ;i' of the <ouncil$s ten founding mem!ers were eugenicists.[(2] ,ccording to the 3opulation <ouncil$s we!site, it,

did not itself espouse any form of population policy. 4nstead, through grants to individuals and institutions, it invested in strengthening the indigenous capacity of countries and regions to conduct population research and to develop their own policies. The <ouncil also funded sem work in =.;. universities and further developed its own in&house research e'pertise in !iomedicine, pu!lic health, and social science.

Much of the evil done in the name of slowing population growth had its roots in an uneasy coalition between feminists, humanitarians and environmentalists, who wished to help the unwillingly fecund, and the racists, eugenicists and militarists who wished to see particular pattern reproduction, regardless of the desires of those involved. The Economist further wrote: As the world population soared, the population controllers came to believe they were fighting a war, and there would be collateral damage. Millions of intra uterine contraceptive devices were e!ported to poor countries although they were "nown to cause infections and sterility.

#$erhaps the individual patient is e!pendable in the general scheme of things,# said a participant at a conference on the devices organi%ed i &'() by the $opulation *ouncil, a research institute founded by +ohn ,. -oc"efeller, #particularly if the infection she ac.uires is sterili%ing bu lethal.#

/n &'(' -obert Mc0amara, then president of the 1orld 2an", said he was reluctant to finance health care #unless it was very strictly related population control, because usually health facilities contributed to the decline of the death rate, and thereby to the population e!plosion.#

A review in the New York Review of Books pointed out that this movement coincided a great deal with the feminist movement in advancing wome reproductive rights. 4owever,

these benefits were seen by many 56 family planning officials as secondary to the goal of reducing the absolute numbers of people in developing countries. The urgency of what came to be "nown as the #population control movement# contributed to a climate of coercion and to a number of serious human rights abuses, especially in Asian countries.78&9 Dominic Lawson, writing a review of *onnelly3s boo" for The 6unday Times, e!plained that:

the population control movement was ban"rolled by America:s biggest private fortunes the ;ord family foundation, +ohn , -oc"efeller ///, a *larence <amble =of $rocter > <amble?. These gentlemen shared not @ust e!treme wealth but a common an!iety: the well to do and clever =people li"e them, obviously? were now having much smaller families than their ancestors, but the great unwashed *hinamenA /ndiansA 0egroesA were reproducing themselves in an irresponsible manner. 1hat they feared was a "ind of ,arwinism in reverse the survival of t unfittest.78)9 As the 0ew 6cientist reported, while contraceptives and women3s fertility rights were being e!panded, ;or much of the past half century, population control came first and human rights had to be sacrificed. ;urther, the 0ew 6cientist wrote that *onnelly, lays bare the dar" secrets of an authoritarian neo Malthusian ethos that created an international population agenda built around control. Bne such horrific notion was, the official policies that made it acceptable to hand out food aid to famine victims only if the women agreed to be sterili%ed.78C9

/n a sad irony, this seemingly progressive movement for women3s rights actually had the effect of resulting in a humanitarian disaster, disproporti affecting women of the developing world. /n &'(D, biologist Paul Ehrlich wrote his widely influential boo", EThe $opulation 2omb,3 in which he predicted that global overpopulation would cause massive famines as early as the &'FGs.7889 /n his boo", he refers to man"ind as a cancer upon the world:

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cellsH the population e!plosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. Treating only the symptom cancer may ma"e the victim more comfortable at first, but eventually he dies often horribly. A similar fate awaits a world with a population e!plo only the symptoms are treated. 1e must shift our efforts from treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparent brutal and heartless decisions. The pain may be intense. 2ut the disease is so far advanced that only radical surgery does the patient have a chance to survive.78I9 The American political elite fully embraced this population paradigm of viewing the world and relations with the rest of the world. $resident Lyndon Johnson was .uoted as saying,

/3m not going to piss away foreign aid in nations where they refuse to deal with their own population problems, while his successor, -ichard 0i!on, was .uoted as saying, population control is a must... population control must go hand in hand with aid.78(9

Robert McNamara, $resident of the 1orld 2an" and former 6ecretary of ,efense in the +ohnson administration, said that he opposed 1orld 2a programs financing health care,

unless it was very strictly related to population control, because usually health facilities contributed to the decline of the death rate, and ther to the population e!plosion.78F9

Ehrlich was also influential in tracking Indias rapid population growth into the 1970s.

The rapid population growth in India was attributed at the time to the result of the public health system the ritish had set up under the colonial go!ernment" as well as the fact that" as a means to maintaining a relationship of dependence with ritain" the ritish had discouraged industriali# India. $s famine was around the corner in India"

The *eneral theory is that the Earth acts as a sin*le or*anism, where all facets interact and react in a particular way that promotes an optimal en on Earth. Thus, the theory was named after the 0ree! Earth *oddess, 0aia. In the openin* para*raph of his boo!, he stated that, the "uest for 0aia is an attempt to find the lar*est livin* creature on Earth.$%'4(

The restraints carbon, particularly the notion of tradin* carbon credits - i.e., tradin* the Bri*ht to pollute a certain amount - will disproportionately affect the devel world, which cannot afford to finance its own development.

Corporations and ban!s will trade and own the worlds carbon credits, *rantin* them the e,clusive ri*ht to pollute and control the worlds resourc environment.

on these issues. While science can be used for the benefit of mankind, so too can it be used for the control and oppression of humanity. The peo run our societies view us as needing to be controlled, so they redirect the social apparatus into systems of control and coercion.

Science can allow us to understand an idea or organism; but in doing so, it can also allow us to understand how to dominate and control that idea organism. We must continually engage in a discussion of our changing society to better understand the nature of its changes and how that could both positively and negatively.

If not for the Technological (or Technetronic!" #evolution, elites would not have access to such powerful means of control; but, simultaneously, p have never had such great access to each other through mass communications and the Internet.

So while environmental science can allow us to better understand our environment, something we seem still to be very much an adolescent in accomplishing, it also unleashes an ability, and what!s greater $ a temptation $ to control and shape the environment. Science can be used to bot imprison the human mind. It is imperative that we approach and discuss the sciences (and all issues" from this perspective, not from a narrow$mi divisive black$and$white world of left! and right!, of religion or science.

We cannot simply view criticism and opposition to social and scientific endeavors as backwards!, or based on religious doctrine!. There are ratio reasons and purposes for criticism and debate on all of these issues, and rational positions of dissent.

Issues like climate change are generally divided upon those who believe! in climate change, and those who are termed deniers!, which is a disin and divisive approach to rational debate. It silences the critical scientists, who do not get funding from governments or corporations. It classifies t dissent as deniers!, employing rhetoric like that used against %olocaust deniers, whereas the ma&ority of the dissent within the scientific commun from those who simply see the role of other forces (often natural" in shaping and changing our climate, such as solar radiation. They do not deny! climate change, but they dissent on the causes and conse'uences. Is their opinion not worth hearing(

If we are reshaping our entire global political and economic spheres as a result of our supposedly collective! perception of this issue $ as we cert then is it not of the utmost importance that we hear from other voices, especially those of dissent, in order to better understand the issue(

=ccustomed to living with almost routine scientific breakthroughs, we have yet to come to terms with the fact that the most compelling 4>st$ century technologies $ robotics, genetic engineering, and nanotechnology $ pose a different threat than the technologies that have come bef Specifically, robots, engineered organisms, and nanobots share a dangerous amplifying factor< They can self$replicate. = bomb is blown up once $ but one bot can become many, and 'uickly get out of control..//1 9oy e:plains that while these technologies can, and consistently are promoted and &ustified in the name of doing good (such as curing diseases, *with each of these technologies, a se'uence of small, individually sensible advances leads to an accumulation of great power and, concomitantly, great danger.9oy ominously warns that<

The 4>st$century technologies $ genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics (?7#" $ are so powerful that they can spawn whole new classes of accidents and abuses. 2ost dangerously, for the first time, these accidents and abuses are widely within the reach of individuals or small gr They will not re'uire large facilities or rare raw materials. @nowledge alone will enable the use of them.

Thus we have the possibility not &ust of weapons of mass destruction but of knowledge$enabled mass destruction (@26", this destructivenes hugely amplified by the power of self$replication.

I think it is no e:aggeration to say we are on the cusp of the further perfection of e:treme evil, an evil whose possibility spreads well beyond which weapons of mass destruction be'ueathed to the nation$states, on to a surprising and terrible empowerment of e:treme individuals.

*= second dream of robotics is that we will gradually replace ourselves with our robotic technology, achieving near immortality by downloadi our consciousnesses.-

9oy further warns of the potential for an arms race to develop in these technologies, &ust as took place in the nuclear, radiological and biological w of the 45th century..C>1

9oy aptly e:plained that in the 45th century, those technologies were largely the products of governments, whereas in the 4>st century, the new technologies of genetic engineering, nanotechnology and robotics (?7#", are the products of corporations and capitalism. Thus, the driving force competition, desire, and the economic system.

%ence, there is far less regulation and discussion of these new technologies than there was of the 45th century technologies, as the new technolo developed in privately owned labs, not public. 9oy often 'uotes a passage from @ac3ynski+s 8nabomber 2anifesto regarding a future dystopia, w feels has *merit in the reasoning.In the event that human control over machines is retained (as opposed to the machines taking over"< .D1ontrol over large systems of machines will be in the hands of a tiny elite $ &ust as it is today, but with two differences.

6ue to improved techni'ues the elite will have greater control over the masses; and because human work will no longer be necessary the masses will be superfluous, a useless burden on the system. If the elite is ruthless they may simply decide to e:terminate the mass of huma If they are humane they may use propaganda or other psychological or biological techni'ues to reduce the birth rate until the mass of huma becomes e:tinct, leaving the world to the elite.

;r, if the elite consists of soft$hearted liberals, they may decide to play the role of good shepherds to the rest of the human race. They will se it that everyone+s physical needs are satisfied, that all children are raised under psychologically hygienic conditions, that everyone has a wholesome hobby to keep him busy, and that anyone who may become dissatisfied undergoes EtreatmentE to cure his Eproblem.E

;f course, life will be so purposeless that people will have to be biologically or psychologically engineered either to remove their need for the power process or make them EsublimateE their drive for power into some harmless hobby. These engineered human beings may be happy in such a society, but they will most certainly not be free. They will have been reduced to the status of domestic animals..C41

= horrifying vision indeed; but one which builds upon the ideas of %u:ley, #ussell and Ar3e3inski, who envisioned a people who $ through biologi psychological means $ are made to love their own servitude.

%u:ley saw the emergence of a world in which humanity, still a wild animal, is domesticated; where only the elite remain wild and have freedom t decisions, while the masses are domesticated like pets. %u:ley opined that,

*2en and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution. There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughl scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.-.CB1

To understand each other, we must know each other. Feople must communicate with one another around the world; ideas must be e:changed b

people and discussed, debated, and decided upon; the people must determine their own futures. Take the elites out of the equation: if you do no them to dominate your lives, do not give them the power to do so.

Talk to each other and determine your own polities, economies and societies. Do not entrust dying ideas and diseased institutions to determine y for you.

The tools and systems of social control are vast and evasive; they penetrate the very psychology and biology of the individual. The elite feel that entrusted - due to their supposed innate! superior intelligence and speciali"ation - to control society and reshape it as they see fit, to actively mol construct public opinion and ideas.

They have a belief that people are essentially irrational emotional beings, and that they must be controlled by an elite or else the world would be This is what underpins the ideas of stability! and order!. The state has been used to fight every progressive form of change that society has ever developed for its betterment: women!s rights, racial rights, civil rights, the anti-war movement, gay rights, etc. #nitially, the impulse - the immediate of the state - is to oppress social movements and to suppress human freedoms.

This approach often leads to a situation in which social movements are only accepted by the state when they are co-opted by the state or powerf economic forces, which then e$ert their influence over the state to alter the policy.

#f we gain stability and order at the cost of our very humanity, is it worth it% Do we really need this eternal guidance, which has been constant thro almost all of human history, to treat the human species as if it was in a constant state of adolescence, never quite prepared to make its own deci go out in the world on its own% &ell it is time for humanity to grow up, leave the strange comfort of mental authoritarianism.

The strive for human autonomy has only 'ust begun; only now is all of humanity politically awakened; only now - and never before - has all of kno humanity had such a great and perfect opportunity to remake the world, retake power, re-imagine individuality and revitali"e freedom.

(ur world is governed not by a conspiracy, but by ideas: ideas of power, money, the state, military, empire, race, religion, se$, gender, politics an The only challenge to those ideas, are new ideas. There are roughly ),*** members of the global elite,!+,-. there are over )./ billion people in the That sounds like a lot of potential for new ideas. The greatest resource for the future of humanity is not in the control! of humanity, which is doom ultimate failure, but for the release and encouragement of the human mind and spirit. 0eople can understand the science and mechanics of the brain, the functions of psychology, the ability of human strength; but still, today, we do how all that biology can create 1eethoven!s ,th 2ymphony.

3umanity is still very much a mystery to humans, and it would seem likely that the best answers to the questions of how should we live%! and ho our societies function%! are best answered with the bigger question of why are we here!%

#f the purpose of people and humanity is to consume and dominate, then our present situation seems only natural. #f we were meant for more, the must become more. #f we were meant to be free, we must become free. #deas are powerful things: they can build empires, and collapse them 'us easily.

#n 4,)5, Dr. Martin Luther King delivered one of his most moving and important speeches, 61eyond 7ietnam,8 in which he spoke out against wa empire. 3e left humanity with sobering words: # am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. &e rapidly begin the shift from a 9thing-oriented9 society to a 9person-oriented9 society. &hen machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.+,:.
