Hey you, out there on a road
always doing what you’re told,
Can we assistance me?
Hey you, out there over a wall,
Breaking bottles in a hall,
Can we assistance me?
Hey you, don’t tell me there’s no wish during all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

“A unequivocally fit sum state would be one in that a almighty executive of domestic bosses and their army of managers control a race of slaves who do not have to be coerced, given they adore their servitude.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World
The universe creates reduction clarity any day. Little children are incidentally slaughtered in their schoolrooms. Predator drones ramble a skies over unfamiliar countries exterminating bad guys, along with trusting women and children (collateral repairs when it occurs in a unfamiliar country). Drugged adult mentally ill kids with no wish and no destiny live lives of isolated still recklessness until they snap. Ignorant, supervision educated, benefit fortuitous drones with no self honour or honour for others, assault, kill and sack within their supervision combined county jungles. Sociopathic criminals who committed a largest financial crime in universe story travel giveaway and continue to occupy executive suites in oppulance bureau towers in downtown NYC, collecting millions in bonuses as remuneration for abrasive a American center class. Academics, whose theories have been entirely disproven, continue to drive a economy into an iceberg while accelerating a income copy and debt distribution that will penetrate a boat of state. Corrupt, bought off politicians solicit to a lowest common denominator as their votes are usually fortuitous on who contributed a many to their choosing campaigns, that never end. Delusional, materialistic, egocentric, math challenged consumers (formerly famous as citizens) live for today, indenture themselves in debt, opinion themselves some-more entitlements, and caring not for destiny generations. The disunion and siege combined by a sprawling, vehicle dependent, record obsessed, supervision controlled, debt financed multitude has widespread like a carcenogenic tumor, solemnly murdering a country.
Pink Floyd expelled The Wall 33 years ago. It was a judgment stone show manuscript that explored a issues of ababdonment, isolation, alienation, authoritarianism, a savagery of war, a authoritarian proper educational system, and a walls people and multitude build to strengthen themselves from carrying to confront existence and understanding with a consequences of their actions. we attended a Roger Waters Wall Concert this past summer during Citizens Bank Park with my 3 sons. Three decades later, a summary is some-more comprehensive than ever. The supervision hardship and never finale wars waged by a American Empire around a universe have combined a multitude built on fear and loathing. Roger Waters’ prophesy is colored by Orwell’s 1984 dystopian calamity of lies, misinformation, promotion and brutality. The blank piece, that Waters didn’t see entrance in 1979, was a ability of a oligarchs to use their control of a credit complement to entice a masses by convincing them to adore their slavery and turn so consumed with element security and a adore of income that they would turn zero some-more than pacifist selfish consumers.
Since 1979, Total Credit Market Debt in a United States has risen from $4.3 trillion to $55.3 trillion, a 1,286% boost in 33 years. Over this same time support sum salary and salaries have risen from $1.3 trillion to $6.9 trillion, a 531% increase. GDP has grown from $2.6 trillion to $15.8 trillion, a 608% increase. Luckily for a oligarchs, a math challenged masses don’t know that 375% of a boost in GDP is particularly due to Federal Reserve combined inflation, as a U.S. dollar has mislaid 68% of a purchasing energy given 1979. This GDP expansion was driven by debt, with consumer expenditures rising from 61% of GDP in 1979 to 71% of GDP today. In a one hundred years given a origination of a Federal Reserve a country’s race has tripled, while a open debt and unfunded liabilites have risen from $2 billion to over $200 trillion, a ten million percent increase. The masses have been automatic and conditioned to adore their debt slavery and crave for some-more debt to repair an mercantile complement that collapsed due to impassioned debt. The cadre of statute chosen are good by formulating debt during hyperspeed levels. The corporate media, Wall Street shysters and low-life prisoner politicians assure a sheep-like masses that this is normal and profitable to their interests, as a sheep are sheared and led to slaughter.
“There are some ideas so wrong that usually a unequivocally intelligent chairman could trust in them.” – George Orwell
“And always, everywhere, there would be a yelling or sensitively lawful hypnotists; and in a sight of a statute idea givers, always everywhere, a tribes of buffoons and hucksters, a veteran liars, a purveyors of interesting irrelevances. Conditioned from a cradle, perceptibly distracted, enraptured systematically, their uniformed victims would go on obediently marching and countermarching, go on, always and everywhere, murdering and failing with a ideal gentleness of lerned poodles.” - Aldous Huxley
Aldous Huxley and Edward Bernays confident in a 1920s that a function of conditioning and promotion techniques could be used to control and manipulate a masses. Ivan Pavlov, a famous Russian physiologist, conducted a belligerent violation work on redeeming reflexes. Pavlov detected that when a bell was stage in successive time with food being presented to a dog in uninterrupted sequences, a dog will primarily slobber when a food is presented. The dog will after come to associate a toll of a bell with a display of a food and slobber on a toll of a bell. To a vicious meditative tellurian being who questions authority, resists being told what they should think, and values their humanity, over what is congested down their throat by supervision run schools and a corporate tranquil media, a suspicion of being treated like a dog is revolting. But to people like Edward Bernays, who believed strategy of a masses by an invisible fortuitous of intellectually higher men, conditioning a minds of a masses by promotion was a prerequisite in a approved multitude to keep a flock underneath control.
Just a cursory hearing of a multitude reveals a race of salivating consumers (dogs) who can be wild to buy a latest iPhone or techno-gadget with a elementary Madison Avenue promotion debate (bell). Everyone has seen a videos of a masses backing adult like cattle on Black Friday, stampeding by aisles, and fighting any other like their a party during Michael Vick’s residence on a Saturday night. All a mega-corporate retailers and a corporate media have to do is ring a bell (SALE) and a dogs start salivating. Product placement, Hollywood star endorsements and successful people regulating a product immediately remonstrate a simply manipulated dogs to slobber and squeeze a products. The disproportion is that these dogs have credit cards released by a Wall Street banks and saved by a Federal Reserve with dollars combined out of skinny air. We are flooded with millions of TV, newspaper, radio, billboard, and internet advertisements designed to make us slobber (spend). Huxley’s dystopian prophesy of a multitude whose mercantile values, in that particular complacency is tangible as a ability to prove needs, and feat as a multitude is alike with mercantile expansion and prosperity, has come to full fruition. He never recognised of consumers carrying a ability to devour though even carrying a income to do so. The credit label became a form of Soma. The so called progressives indicate to a ever augmenting “advancements” in record as explanation that a multitude is progressing. Huxley knew otherwise, decades before we reached this outrageous indicate in history:
“Technological swell has merely supposing us with some-more fit means for going backwards.” - Aldous Huxley
In existence a “technological progress” has finished zero some-more than emanate a humorless, shallow, extraneous universe of disunion and selfish desires. Just as in Huxley’s Brave New World, scholarship and record have not been used to find law and allege a culture. They have been used by a State to sensor, control, and guard a citizens. They use record as a means to emanate electronic party machines that beget both submissive convenience and a high levels of expenditure and prolongation that are a basement of governmental fortitude and state designed happiness. When those in control speak about progress, they meant larger control over a lives. When a expenditure of element products isn’t adequate to fill a holes within a souls, a owners are discerning to allot a tablet to well-spoken over those feelings of confusion and discontent. In Huxley’s novel a race willingly consumes Soma to diffuse any anxieties or disastrous emotion. The observant was, “One cubic centimeter cures 10 murky sentiments.” In America a supervision tranquil drug courtesy has thousands of pills to provide any ailment or unfortunate suspicion that competence hurt you. Just don’t try and provide yourself with an unapproved healthy or criminialized substance. The hazard of seizure always lurks in a shadows. They usually wish us to be transmutable bricks in a wall.
And a Worms Ate Into His Brain
“The genuine destroyed victims of mental illness are to be found among those who seem to be many normal. Many of them are normal given they are so good practiced to a mode of existence, given their tellurian voice has been silenced so early in their lives that they do not even onslaught or humour or rise symptoms as a highly-strung does. They are normal not in what might be called a comprehensive clarity of a word; they are normal usually in propinquity to a profoundly aberrant society. Their ideal composition to that aberrant multitude is a magnitude of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, vital though bitch in a multitude to which, if they were entirely tellurian beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” - Aldous Huxley
Hey you, out there in a cold
Getting lonely, removing old
Can we feel me?
Hey you, station in a aisles
With tingling feet and vanishing smiles
Can we feel me?
Hey you, don’t assistance them to bury a light
Don’t give in though a fight.
Pink Floyd – Hey You
The comfortless deaths of twenty children and 6 adults in Newtown, Connecticut this past week and a identical tragedies in Aurora, Columbine, Virginia Tech and Tucson are a thoughtfulness of a disfigured multitude we’ve created. The on-going control weird do-gooders that trust a supervision can solve all problems and urge a lives with another law or regulation, have as common come to a wrong resolution for a wrong problem. Stricter gun control laws would not have averted this this tragedy. Connecticut has a 5th toughest gun restrictions in a republic according to a Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The guns were purchased legally by a mom of a killer. Mentally demented people should not have entrance to guns, knives, automobiles, gasoline, or ball bats. The genuine emanate is not what he used to kill these trusting people, it’s what caused him to snap. Those in energy wish to obstruct a courtesy from this essential question. In Huxley’s novel a characters do all they can to equivocate opposed a law about their possess lives. They try to change existence by ingesting Soma, speedy by a state as a ultimate form of bullheaded self-delusion. Soma clouds a realities of a benefaction and replaces them with happy hallucinations, and is so a apparatus for compelling amicable stability. America has taken Huxley’s dystopian prophesy to an extreme. There are millions of children in this republic being unperceiving on a daily basement to keep them underneath control. A infancy of a mass murderers were holding psychotropic drugs, including a mentally demented torpedo this week. These killings are a outcome of a state sponsored drugging of children, a enlightenment that promotes narcissism, damaged families and a technologically extended suburban stretch siege from tellurian relationships, adore and caring for others.
We worship record even nonetheless it encourages a building of section walls, formulating a self-imposed siege from society. The normal family section has been discarded, with 50% of marriages finale in divorce and 43% of all children innate out of wedlock. Millions of families are dysfunctional, with relatives too bustling with their careers and appropriation element possessions, to worry with lifting their children in a amatory nurturing way. One in 10 American adults select to shun their male done cells with remedy anti-depressants. Almost one in 4 women in their 40s and 50s are popping pills to shun their joyless lives. Huxley envisioned a Soma Nation. America is a Prozac Nation. The rich consider medicating their kids, spoiling them with toys, gadgets and cars, and occupying their days with orderly sports and activities passes for concerned parenting. Poor county children are propitious if they ever lay eyes on their father. Ignorance, violence, and dependency are a given for many of these kids. And all of these children are matriculated into a supervision run schools whose solitary purpose is to learn kids what to think, rather than how to think. Our owners need to keep us “happy” and focused on feelings, element possessions, and an gigantic array of distractions, so they can keep control and continue their pillaging of a inhabitant wealth.
Our leaders have attempted to pattern their possess Brave New World, maintaining control by creation America’s adults so delighted and outwardly over that they no longer caring about their personal freedoms, liberties and county responsibilities. The consequences of augmenting state energy are a detriment of dignity, morals, values, and emotions. We are losing a humanity. The multitude combined by Bernays and his minions who occupy a executive suites in NYC and coast by a halls of Congress has been built on destroying all tellurian truths, such as love, friendship, community, and personal connections. Decades of media propaganda, open preparation mind control, and peddling of debt assured a infancy that complacency meant evident benefit of a desires for food, sex, drugs, clothes, iGadgets, and all a other consumer crap done in corporate sponsored worker labor factories opposite Asia. These delusional hallucinations of complacency are a jail walls we’ve built section by brick.
“This regard with a elementary condition of leisure — a deficiency of earthy imprisonment — is undoubtedly necessary, though is not all that is necessary. It is ideally probable for a male to be out of jail and nonetheless not giveaway — to be underneath no earthy imprisonment and nonetheless to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as a member of a inhabitant State, or of some private seductiveness within a nation, wish him to think, feel and act.” - Aldous Huxley
It took a intellectuals and progressives that swing energy opposite a land usually moments to steal a feelings of grief and pain unconditional a nation, to mislead courtesy from a mental illnesses caused by a multitude they’ve created, towards a feign storyline that gun assault is unconditional a land. In reality, aroused crime has been descending for over a decade as gun sales have soared. The carnage rate in this republic is a lowest given 1964, with a immeasurable infancy of homicides occurring in a county kill zones combined by a 5 decade prolonged on-going quarrel on poverty. The law is of no seductiveness to those brandishing power. After decades of conditioning, a masses are psychologically serf to a messages designed to make them salivate. They will be compelled to think, feel and act as educated by a Alphas. There will be calls for some-more police, notwithstanding a fact that military frequency stop a crime. With all of their armaments, technology, high powered weaponry, and domestic clout, they can be counted on to arrive 5 mins after a tragedy is over. But they are shining in luring clueless Muslim teenagers into militant plots, picking a target, providing a feign bombs, and holding credit for foiling a plots they created. More kinship military officers will boost a reserve as many as some-more kinship teachers have done a kids smarter. This tragedy will be used by a propagandists to levy serve restrictions on those who select personal shortcoming and independence over dependency and trust in a potency and integrity of a good supervision overlords.
As a father of 3 sons we can’t suppose a pain, grief and void a relatives of these pleasing children contingency be experiencing. The grief is overwhelming. we weep for a children and adults slaughtered by a mentally demented immature male combined by a truly perverted enlightenment of alienation. we weep for a children being lifted in a multitude run by immorality psychopathic liars that use a energy of promotion and a collection of debt to control and manipulate a citizens. we weep for unborn generations that will be forced to confront a awful outrageous disharmony combined by a enlightenment of selfish fervour and narcissism. The things we value in this enlightenment – accumulating wealth, external beauty, merger of element possessions, present gratification, entrance to debt, supervision control, and restorative a ills with drugs – are pushing us insane. Who is unequivocally aberrant in a profoundly aberrant society? Believing that possessions, some-more laws or another remedy will truly make us happy is insane. Popping a pill, shopping a new iPhone, or flitting another law will not heal a illness that permeates this nation. We need to recapture a humanity, county honour and self-responsibility that built this country. Only an awakened proletariat can change a course.
Huxley feared that a desires would hurt us. Orwell was fearful that what we fear would hurt us. The oligarchs have pushed a Huxley prophesy to a tolerable limit. The covetousness and fervour of these invisible energy brokers has devoured a immeasurable resources of a nation. These psychopaths weren’t confident with siphoning off many of a resources of a country. They wanted it all and wrecked a tellurian economy in their unpleasant office of mammon. We are now in a genocide throes of a many decadent, delusional, debt engendered epoch in a prolonged story of mankind. Those in energy comprehend it is slipping away. Their “solutions” simulate an atmosphere of desperation. Their promotion efforts have been redoubled. As some-more center category workers remove their jobs, some-more immature people connoisseur from college with tens of thousands in tyro loan debt and a destiny of dramatically reduced expectations, and some-more people are driven over their violation point, this mercenary hide of complacency will be ripped asunder. Anger is building like a lava architecture within a volcano. A vicious meditative minority are doubt a motives of those in power. The unsustainability of a mercantile model is certain. The seeds of array are being sown. Our multitude is usually fantasy. The wall is too high. It will be adult to an raging untiring minority of leisure disposed adults to rip down a wall. The choice is to concede a worms to eat into a brains. Each of us contingency answer a elementary question. Are we usually another section in a wall?
But it was usually fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As we can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not mangle free.
And a worms ate into his brain.
Pink Floyd – Hey You
The oligarchs will not give adult though a fight. Their fulfilment that a Brave New World process of determining a masses has run a march has assured them to change their methods towards Orwell’s 1984 tactics. In partial dual of this array – Mother Should we Trust a Government? - I’ll residence how a use of fear, war, pain, and notice are apropos a new determining process of a oligarchs.
