Man is not just ruled from above, he is complicit in his own enslavement and can, in theory, walk free at any time…if he wants to, but does he want to?
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.
— Edward L. Bernays, Propaganda
The fact that my last article (please read or this won’t make sense) got the amount of flak that it did just goes to show how unwilling to take personal responsibility people are.
The truth hurts don’t it?
However, I never said “don't place blame” or "blame yourself for everything bad that is happening". You shouldn't take blame for things that are not your fault, or were out of your control. This is, of course, ridiculous. You need to bring awareness to the various factors of your life that are holding you back and figure out which ones you are in control over and which ones are out of your hands, and also which ones are worth blaming someone else for.
It is a two way street.
Slavery requires two basic components:
1. A sadistic and controlling master.
2. A disempowered and compliant slave.
If you kill the master, great, you got rid of that half of the problem.
No, because if you aren’t willing to own the responsibility that comes with freedom, you will replace one master with another. Freedom from any tyranny will never be achieved unless the mind of the slave has been emancipated through the acceptance of self-responsibility.
Think of it like a battered wife, who leaves her abusive husband.
And then what?
No, she usually runs back to another bad boy who abuses her, often times back to the same abusive husband she swore to never return to.
“People will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.”
— Aldous Huxley
It’s called Sado/Masochism and it is a psychological phenomenon as old as Man. The only way to escape it is to free yourself from the various ways that you tyrannize yourself, only then can you leave/destroy the master.
The master just plays upon the insecurities of the slave. He is using the psychological insecurity and masochism of the slave against it. It is more of a psychological dictatorship than a physical one. Much like the tyranny we live in today:
*School shooting happens*
Media (Sadist): “Our schools are unsafe. Gun crime is out of control and we need common sense gun control to save the children”.
Citizen (Masochist): *Becomes anti-gun, which prevents him from defending himself, and thus dependent (enslaved) to those who are armed*
Or like with the anti-White narrative:
Academia (Sadist): “Whites are evil and are the oppressors of people of color and the downtrodden”
White Student (Masochist): *Becomes self-loathing, votes for and supports all policies and movements that promote non-Whites and discriminate against Whites. Then non-Whites gain control and oppress Whites.*
A 1984 style “boot to the face” form of physical dictatorship isn’t needed today because we are conditioned through media, academia, religion and culture to enslave ourselves. We have become so pacified because our insecurities have been manipulated by these sadistic groups.
The only way to free yourself from this is to take responsibility for your role in the Master/Slave dynamic. Then, through the painstaking process of introspection, self-knowledge, hard work, discipline, dedication and the continuous development of self-esteem can you conquer those insecurities and weaknesses that are used to control you.
Then, and only then, can you destroy the tyrant.
I realize that this is difficult for some to accept. It is much easier and more convenient to blame someone else for your plight.
But guess what?
You share in that blame. And until you accept that, face it, and conquer it… You will continue to be enslaved.
And if you think you can just kill the master and be free, remember this:
“The Grey Monk”
By William Blake
“I die I die the Mother said
My Children die for lack of Bread
What more has the merciless Tyrant said
The Monk sat down on the Stony Bed
The blood red ran from the Grey Monks side
His hands & feet were wounded wide
His Body bent his arms & knees
Like to the roots of ancient trees
His eye was dry no tear could flow
A hollow groan first spoke his woe
He trembled & shudderd upon the Bed
At length with a feeble cry he said
When God commanded this hand to write
In the studious hours of deep midnight
He told me the writing I wrote should prove
The Bane of all that on Earth I lovd
My Brother starvd between two Walls
His Childrens Cry my Soul appalls
I mockd at the wrack & griding chain
My bent body mocks their torturing pain
Thy Father drew his sword in the North
With his thousands strong he marched forth
Thy Brother has armd himself in Steel
To avenge the wrongs thy Children feel
But vain the Sword & vain the Bow
They never can work Wars overthrow
The Hermits Prayer & the Widows tear
Alone can free the World from fear
For a Tear is an Intellectual Thing
And a Sigh is the Sword of an Angel King
And the bitter groan of the Martyrs woe
Is an Arrow from the Almighties Bow
The hand of Vengeance found the Bed
To which the Purple Tyrant fled
The iron hand crushd the Tyrants head
And became a Tyrant in his stead”
