“… faith is believing and hoping when there is little evidence for or against
something. Delusion is believing when there is an abundance of evidence against
~ Jeremy Runnells, Letter To A CES Director
Stanley Milgram began his famous obedience experiment 62 years ago, and based on that experiment, he stated that 80% of the population do not have the psychological or moral resources to defy an ‘authority’s’ order, no matter how illegitimate the order is. (All orders are illegitimate) Therefore, only 20% have critical thinking capacity, and this explains a lot. This experiment was done in the early 60s, so what might be the results today? It is now evident that only a tiny minority still retain any ability to think critically; a very precarious situation for humanity to be sure. Considering all that has taken place over these many decades, the broad-based dumbing down of society, the continuous wars of aggression, and the massive growth in dependence on rule by the collective herd, sadly, these numbers would be far worse. There can be no endorsement of the progress of man, quite the opposite is the case, as this is an indictment of the psychological and moral breakdown of society at large, and the total disregard for reason, virtue, logic, and truth.
Stanley Milgram once said: “The essence in obedience consists in the fact that a person comes to view himself as an instrument for carrying out another person’s wishes and he therefore no longer regards himself as responsible for his actions.” So, after additional consideration, I thought it prudent to speculate on the different aspects of society; to take this idea to a different level. The people used in the initial Milgram experiments, were basically normal individuals, some hand-picked and some volunteers. These were not civic ‘leaders,’ high-level politicians, rulers, or famous people, but were common Americans for the most part. What would happen if instead of regular people being the test subjects, politicians, rulers, government officials, mainstream media puppets, and military types were the ones pulling the lever in these experiments? It would be a logical assumption, that these types of people would be even more likely to inflict punishment on their fellow man on orders, as they are staunch believers of hierarchy, and are therefore more accepting of rank (class) authority.
This assumption does not bode well for a free, sane, and independent society. If well more than 80% (more like 95% in my view) of the general population today does not have the psychological and moral resources to defy ‘authority’ and embrace right and denounce wrong, and the political class and all others associated with them, are even less likely to be able to discern right from wrong, where does that leave us? Without a mass conversion by the proletariat, it leaves us completely vulnerable to eternal enslavement. One look around should be enough for anyone able to think at even a small child’s level, that mass slavery is not only being aggressively pursued, but is the common state of man throughout the world today. The current state of being is one of a master and his slaves.
No government has ever brought freedom, and of course could never do so. Government only exists through force, and force is the antithesis of freedom. Therefore, for freedom to thrive, government has to be abandoned and eliminated. There is no other way. Government and rule can only exist and survive if the masses accept and allow it, and that has always been the case, regardless that history has shown since the beginning of time, that this insane ‘ideology’ is the cause of theft, slavery, economic failure, torture, misery, poverty, war, and genocide. All government and rule is a curse on humanity.
