Gender and racial discrimination, surveillance, exploitation and so forth are only effects. The real problem is – that it is possible to suppress the people by false Science or false descriptions of the world – that supports Might Is Right. Or like this. We are not genuine citizens.

Conclusion



The Cult Of The Strongman

Patrick Wintour reports the following in Boris Johnson: democracy is in retreat across the world, The Guardian, 2 December 2016.
… Britain’s foreign secretary … Boris Johnson will issue a warning that democracy is in retreat across the world and that a “cult of the strongman” is taking hold, raising the prospect that the concept of a global liberal order will fade into irrelevance. ...
That the “cult of the strongman” is openly worshipped today is not so strange when the citizens are put on a daily diet to worship the strongman in a usually hidden manner.

For example, the so called Science of Psychology offers the comforting explanation; Why you don’t want a nice boss, Sydney Finkelstein, BBC, 25 August 2016.

The simple fact is that schools, universities and the massmedia train the people to restrict their capacity to think and understand; in order to force the people to believe that they can only accept how it is and to obey.

In short. The Academic tradition, that has a total monopoly of so called Education and Science, is a brainwashing operation with the objective to produce a zombie population forced to worship the strongman.

That we, in the West, are immersed in a hidden totalitarianism, falsely called Democracy is not an especially unique perspective.

One of the few contemporary intellectuals Umberto Eco (1932–2016) says, in his probably last novel Number Zero (2015), that the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (1883–1945) survived and continue to rule as a hidden dictator.

Eco was open about the meaning of this metaphor. The following conversation is in Umberto Eco on Berlusconi, bestiality and Beyoncé, Gaby Wood, The Telegraph, 30 November 2015.
… Still, you don’t need Mussolini to be alive to feel his influence on politics. Though the conspiracy is implausible, the point, surely, stands? ... 
Eco’s idea about Mussolini’s survival is an elaborate way of saying the spirit of fascism lives on. “Yes, OK,” says Eco. “Good reading. A+.” … “... There you have the curse of Italy: one half fascist and one half suicidal.” ...
That the Italians has fallen into the trap of hidden totalitarianism is not only a valid metaphor for the Italians as Italy is a nation within the current Western confusion.

And of course, you, like most other citizens suspect the almost hidden tyranny.

For example, according to Boris Johnson interview: We can be the 'heroes of Europe' by voting to Leave, Tim Ross, The Telegraph, 14 May 2016.
… He claims Winston Churchill would be joining him on the Brexit bus; he warns that the EU shares the same flawed ambition to unite Europe that Hitler pursued, … The truth is that the history of the last couple of thousand years has been broadly repeated attempts by various people or institutions – in a Freudian way – to rediscover the lost childhood of Europe, this golden age of peace and prosperity under the Romans, by trying to unify it. Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically,” he says. …
And.
“This is a chance for the British people to be the heroes of Europe and to act as a voice of moderation and common sense, and to stop something getting in my view out of control,” 
“It is time for someone – it’s almost always the British in European history – to say, 'we think a different approach is called for’.”


The Missing Piece That Changes
And Explains the Whole Game


The only relation you, so far, leave out – the missing piece that changes and explains the whole game – is the simple and undeniable fact that our current Western culture is a construction made, by the military dictatorship of the Roman empire, to hide the rules of Dictatorship by making the people to believe that the only real or concrete is to accept how it is and to obey.

This stupidity, to restrict the people to accept how it is and to obey, is formally called Platonism and is promoted by the Academic tradition that today is guaranteed a total monopoly of Education and Science.

The whole point with Brexit is to get rid of stupid rules.

So, when you realise that the source of the Static stupidity is the usually hidden ideal of the strongman or Platonism, you can only come to the conclusion; you need to kick out the Academic tradition that is an extension of the military dictatorship of the Roman empire.

In short. The “cult of the strongman” is what we are trained to worship in schools and universities.

And we are for sure reminded daily by the massmedia to stay in inside the usually hidden Static rules that denies us to be real citizens; according to the real roots of our Western civilisation formulated by the Athenians.

Or like this. The Athenian ideal of Understanding is Right is today eliminated by Hidden Might is Right.


Propaganda Replace Real Understanding

It must be underlined that the current and usually hidden ideal of Platonism include to rule the people by propaganda; as any form of real or concrete understanding is eliminated.

The French Academic sociologist Jacques Ellul (1912–1994) formulate this ideal at the end of the Preface to his book Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes (1962), full text, Ellul says.
... When man will be fully adapted to this technological society, when he will end by obeying with enthusiasm, convinced of the excellence of what he is forced to do, the constraint of the organization will no longer be felt by him; the truth is, it will no longer be a constraint, and the police will have nothing to do. The civic and technological good will and the enthusiasm for the right social myths — both created by propaganda — will finally have solved the problem of man.
Not even the most dystopian descriptions like Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) by George Orwell (1903–1950) nor the neo-noir science fiction film Blade Runner (1982) is close to how the Academic cult writes about their ideal society.


In Platonism Must Art Be Mystical

In Platonism must Art be mystical as the real origins of Art is about what we are able to think and do.

So, today is the mystical Art given to the people as decoration, amusement and a secure and a meaningless protest against the tyranny.

Consequently, is a film like Blade Runner only mystical art and can not have any relation to how it actually is.


Now

Earlier in our history the economy was based on command and control; as it was possible to produce and sell simple products that demanded many obedient people in agriculture and in factories.

Today there is no need of the absolute obedience and simple products. Accordingly, the whole economy shrinks in a world where the most Dynamic and less restricted are victorious.

At the same time are the Static ideals, made to hide Dictatorship and to worship the strongman, promoted by the schools and universities, the massmedia and the political élite.

The result is of course the total confusion of today where the people are forced into the dead end, to openly worship the strongman; as they are not aware of any other alternative.

In brief. Today there is a growing hate between them that promote the hidden worship of the strongman and them that want to worship the strongman openly.

In a desperate attempt to fend of the people and the growing hatred; the Academic cult that promotes the usually hidden culture of the strongman, awarded Bob Dylan the Nobel prize in literature this year.

And the reply was that they had to listen to a catalogue of their crimes when Patti Smith performed Dylan's song A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall (1962) at the Nobel Prize ceremony.



Heard ten thousand whisperin’ and nobody listenin’
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin’
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter

Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall
...
Lyrics, A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall on Dylan's site.

Yes, a hard rain’s a-gonna fall on the Academic cult. They will hopefully cease to exist very soon.

That the cult of Roman Platonists was forced to give one of their most prestigious awards to Dylan is the perfect beginning of the end of their total terror.


Conclusion

Don't hesitate. The Platonists will not disappear from their cushy positions by themselves. So, kick out the Romans for good!

To more precise dissolve all the relations between the promoters of the cult of the strongman, the cult of Platonism or the Academic tradition and set up a new organisation that promote real Education and real Science.

And then you will open up to sustainable growth in a nation of artists, real scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs.

To Not Be Restricted by Static Rules Becomes the Same as Discrimination

Observe

This post has two functions.

At first, it is a protest against the daily and usually hidden promotions of a Command and Control culture.

Secondly, this example helps current and new readers of my book, This Is How The State Fucks Your Mind, to identify the usually hidden Static rules in our Western society that has the formal name Platonism.

Platonism has for almost two thousand years ruled the West and is today the official worldview as the national States of the West guarantees the promoters of Platonism, the Academic tradition, a monopoly of what is said to be Science and Education.

The core of Platonism is to fool the people that they can only accept how it is and to obey as any other alternative is mystical and a threat to the existing Static rule of Platonism.

As Platonism was made to practical method by the Church is the core of the false Education and false Science provided by schools and universities today based on usually hidden dogmas of the Church.


Oversight of this Example

As to create must be mystical in Platonism is it easy in today’s society, that is based on Platonism, to fend off any attempts to create or to break free from the predefined Static rules that is the official perspective of life and the world; below a thin surface of the so called Freedom.

In this example is attempts to formulate and openly use methods to create ridiculed and trashed in order to defend the usually hidden ideals of Platonism; that the people must be restricted to accept how it is and to obey.


To Not Be Restricted by Static Rules Becomes the Same as Discrimination

This post is a nice lesson of how to make usually efficient propaganda by to strengthen the established Static perspective by to ridicule a Dynamic perspective.

The example demonstrates how to not be restricted by Static rules becomes the same as Discrimination in the form of Ageism.

Business Matters, BBC, sent Lucy Kellaway's commentary Is Silicon Valley ageist?, produced by the Financial Times, 13 December 2016.
And finally - do not age. Because to age is a sin. You will be criticized and vilified - and definitely not played on the radio." Now you'd think that a place like Silicon Valley in California - home to the likes of Google, Facebook and Apple - would be progressive ... beyond all that. But Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times says what started out as a youthful vibe has indeed become outright ageism - an environment specifically designed to discriminate against the older worker.

Also as podcast, 12 December 2016.

The same message as text Silicon Valley’s corporate culture is ageist, Lucy Kellaway, Financial Times, 30 October 2016.

If locked out try via search: "Silicon Valley’s corporate culture is ageist, Lucy Kellaway, Financial Times"

The introduction is:
Faddish organisational trends that shut out older workers are in danger of spreading
The Podcast by Financial Times, Silicon Valley’s corporate culture is ageist, 1 November 2106 is promoted by the same words.

Lucy Kellaway usually expose hypocrisies with flair and precision.

But, here is the murky ideals in the open. Ideals that I don't think that Kellaway or many others are aware of. The Static ideals just exist and is taken for given to be the same as Wisdom or Science.

Kellaway refers to the book The Conversational Firm: Rethinking Bureaucracy in the Age of Social Media by Catherine Turco, see A look inside a “conversational firm”, Kara Baskin, 1 September 2016.

Turco's book is an investigation of the ever fresh problem, in the current Western culture; how to solve problems or to create solutions as these activities cannot be done within a Hierarchic structure or by Command and Control.

Moreover refers Kellaway probably and en passant to the popular article Is Silicon Valley Ageist Or Just Smart?, Steven Kotler, Forbes, 14 February 2015.

To make the new is, per definition, against a Static structure that is made to preserve what is already established.

The solid mess is then made by the promoters of a strict Command and Control Culture, when they are able to brand efforts to get outside of their ideal; Discrimination. Perfect! Almost.

Kellaway makes this trick by to describe the process that is used to find new perspectives and solutions called hack nights in this way.

The podcast version.
… All the employees love hack night. But then they would because the medium age of their 600 staff is 26. I view a evening like this with unmitigated horror. I am at least two decades too old for it. The company call it controlled chaos. But, I am anti chaos of any sorts; on the grounds if it is chaotic and therefore a less efficient way of organising than something more structured. …

The text version.
… At TechCo, they love Hack Night. But they would, because the median age of their 600 staff is 26. I view an evening like this with unmitigated horror. Not because I think it couldn’t work, or that no fruitful discussion could ever result. It simply would not work with me as a part of it as I am at least two decades too old for it. TechCo calls it “controlled chaos”, but I am anti-chaos of any sort, on the grounds that it is chaotic and therefore a less efficient way of organising than something more structured. …

No, Financial Times, BBC and Kellaway it is not about age. It is all about; to create anything, like structures, is NOT the same as to follow or obey already established structures.

Of course, it is honourable to criticise any form of discrimination. But, here is the concept discrimination used to knock out efforts to create the new.

That a younger generation is attracted to organisations that try to get away from a culture of total obedience, total fear and total angst is somewhat obvious.

Take note, this is not about the usual generation gap.

Today we live in a culture gap between the foolishness of Platonism and a Western world without hidden, Static and religious dogmas.

Our problem today is that the hierarchic structure of our Western society – defended and promoted by the massmedia – denies us to openly talk about the Dynamic process to create; as it is against the usually hidden dogmas of the Church presented as Reason and Science by the Academic cult.

Remember, we are today stuck in the stupidity that the god of the Church is the only allowed creator. And we are supposed to not even talk about this tyranny (This is the main theme in my book This Is How The State Fucks Your Mind).

In practice it is simply so that the current Western culture force you to Frustration, Shame, Guilt and Angst if you do not accept how it is and obey.

And on top of it all; as we are not allowed to openly talk about this stupidity. The effect, is accordingly; even deeper Frustration, Shame, Guilt and Angst.


Short about Contemporary Movements

Contemporary movements to break away from the established Static culture is, for example called Hacker culture and Maker culture.

For example, Chi Hack Night is promoted to be "Chicago's weekly event to build, share & learn about civic tech”.

And even more provocative in the Static Western culture is FailCon's message: "Stop being afraid of failure and start embracing it.".


Final Words

Financial Times, BBC and Kellaway, even if you are not brave enough to confront hidden religious ideals that suppress the people; at least don't make it worse.

It is a terrifying sign of that, we still live in the dark ages when the ideals of Command and Control that in practice is the same as Dictatorship are openly promoted by two extremely powerful media organisations like the Financial Times and BBC.

Please, stop your propaganda to enforce all forms of Dictatorship; at once!

It is really scary.

Furthermore, BBC is a trustworthy source of to praise Dictatorship and absolute submission of the people in the name of Science. See, for example the links at the end of this my post.

The current culture of the West is based on that you can only be an obedient soldier as anything else is made mystical, 13 September 2016.

Open Letter To Angela Merkel - The Real Problem Is That The Schools Trick Us By A False Science Based On Static Dogmas Of The Church

Svensk översättning / Translation to Swedish, lege.net

Updated, fixed sloppy language, 8 December 2016

This letter as a pdf (opens in a new window).

Dear Angela Merkel,

The ongoing total crisis of the West is called economical or political. The true cause of the difficulties is an intellectual confusion as our possibilities to understand life and the world are usually restricted by hidden religious dogmas.

Please observe, I am for sure not against religion or Christ. I only expose that, today are we denied to investigate and improve what we actually are able to understand and talk about by hidden religious dogmas; that demand absolute submission.

What It Is All About
The Usually Hidden Relations
My Message To You


Summary

The massive problem is the Academic tradition, that has a monopoly of Knowledge and Education, is an organisation with hidden religious objectives, that trick the people AND the political élite to accept or even worship Dictatorship; by hidden dogmas of the Church that is said to be Reason and Science.

For example the central demand to be Normal in the so called Science of Psychology has no concrete definition as it is a hidden Static dogma of the Church; that means that the people must be restricted to accept how it is and to obey.

The historic relation is that our capacity to comprehend how to improve life and the society, in a concrete manner, has been replaced by to accept how it is and to obey.


Background

Angela Merkel, head of the government of Germany, has for a long time said that the big problem is nationalism. And in 2017 Merkel wants to be re-elected in the federal elections in Germany.

Here is a recent example of the current situation. Merkel Must Change to Meet Germany's Challenges, Dirk Kurbjuweit, Der Spiegel, 25 November 2016. Kurbjuweit says.

... No less than liberal democracy is at stake.

It is the very foundations of this Liberal democracy that is based on false explanations of life and the world to support Hidden Might is Right. So, that the current Western terror, called Liberal democracy, is finally breaking up is the best that has happened for almost two thousand years!

The opportunity and challenge is now to create a culture of real Democracy based on a real Science and a concrete Reason.



What It Is All About

Most people hate the School and suspect that they are misled by the massmedia or the Lügenpresse/Lying press. But, they can usually not understand in a concrete fashion why or how it is like it is; as they from the beginning are trained to have a false understanding of life and the world that only supports to accept how it is and to obey.

We are simply tricked into a Static worldview – that takes away any concrete Dynamic qualities – like to develop the joy to discover, create and cooperate and are forced to accept how it is and to obey. Consequently, becomes Hidden or Open Dictatorships the same as how it must be.

All in all. We need to throw out the stupidity to restrict our capacity to understand life and the world.

We need to dissolve any relation between the State and the Academic tradition, that restrict our capacities, and develop a new system for how the State can support real Education and real Science.


The Usually Hidden Relations

The main and real objective of the Academic tradition is to make real thinking and real understanding mystical; in order to force the people to accept how it is and to obey.

The simple historic fact, that is usually hidden today, is that the current worldview of the West is a construction made to hide Dictatorship was made by the military dictatorship of the Roman empire.

The formal name of this method to fool the people to stupidity and suppression is Platonism.

Platonism is constructed to eliminate the foundations of true Democracy and true Science as it was developed and used in Athens. As the Athenians had formulated their ideals it was easy for the Romans to know what to eliminate.

The core of Platonism is to make the people believe that Reason, or the capacity to think, to reach insights, is mystical or impossible to grasp in a concrete manner.

In practice this means that The Mystical Reason reject concrete understanding of anything else than to accept how it is and to obey. The desired effect is that the highest Authority, like for example a State, is godlike or some form of god.

The teachings of the Academic cult are therefore based on the ideals of Dictatorship that has resulted in, for example Nationalism, Communism, Fascism and Nazism. So, it is about time to cut off any relation between the national States of the Western world and the Academic tradition.

One of the main problems of today, or perhaps THE main problem, is that the massmedia is totally owned and made by promoters of the ideal to use hidden religious dogmas to fool the political élite as well as the people. I would be delighted if I am proved to be wrong.


My Message To You

You are a powerful leader, not afraid to take a fight to do the right thing. For example, you kicked out Nuclear power in order to establish a foundation for sustainable alternatives.

So, if you now kick out the Academic tradition, or to be more precise dissolve all relations between the Academic cult and the State and set up a new structure for Education and Science. A fundament that supports our concrete capacity to improve, innovate and create can only result in a sustainable real growth in many dimensions. And then will other nations follow Germany.

You have the opportunity to finally put an end to the ongoing tragedy of the West, almost two thousand years of extreme stupidity and unnecessary sufferings, by opening up to a prosperous era of the Western civilisation.

You have the power and all the reasons to dissolve the relations between the Academic cult and the State. It will not be easy. So please, begin at once!

And do remember, Crisis means literally turning point and at the bottom of Pandora's box is the Hope.

These two simple messages from the ancient Greeks are examples of insights of Dynamic relations that the current Static Western culture is built on to eliminate a concrete understanding of.

In my book This Is How The State Fucks Your Mind are more concrete relations as well as undeniable historic facts.

The latest chapters that I have added are:

The German Nazis Searched For The Intellectual History Of The West



This video has no English subtitles. But, even without full understanding, this documentary about the 1938–39 German expedition to Tibet is extremely interesting.

About the documentary Geheimnis Tibet (in German).

Their organisation for such investigations was called Ahnenerbe and to follow this links on Wikipedia opens up to a wealth of information.

An essential part of our current history and the current description of what is our reality is the fact that the German Nazis actively searched for the intellectual history of the West.

This fact is vital in many dimensions. For example, that such initiatives was made demonstrate that the Nazi movement was, or perhaps is, not as simple minded as they usually are presented to be.

...

Update 7 April 2017

A Bizarre SS Expedition to Tibet, Matthias Schulz, Der Spiegel, 3 April 2017, is about the new German-language book "Nazis in Tibet" by Peter Meier-Hüsing.

"... Many believe they had actually been sent to search for a lost Aryan race, but a new book argues that the truth is more complicated."
