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.

Read a hell of a good story about the ongoing collapse

Der Spiegel has this extraordinary good article based on many interviews.

The Deutsche Bank Downfall - How a Pillar of German Banking Lost Its Way, Ullrich Fichtner, Hauke Goos and Martin Hesse, Der Spiegel 28 October 2016.

But this story is not just about Deutsche Bank, that recently was one of the worlds largest banks; it is the story about the current Western culture and the ongoing collapse of this culture.

For example, in the beginning of the article there are these great words.
Greed, provincialism, cowardice, unfocused aggression, mania, egoism, immaturity, mendacity, incompetence, weakness, pride, blundering, decadence, arrogance, a need for admiration, naiveté: If you are looking for words that explain the fall of Deutsche Bank, you can choose freely and justifiably from among the above list.
The only annoying thing is: Why can't these highly competent journalists operate on a higher level?

HyperNormalisation by Adam Curtis - A perfect intro to Perception management

The film HyperNormalisation by Adam Curtis is seriously good stuff.

However, Curtis stays on the surface and is therefore stunned to find that everything appears to be so hollow.

If you know a way to inform Mr. Curtis that the current Western culture and the art of Perception management did not just appear some years ago; please tell me.

... ‘You were so much a part of the system that you were unable to see beyond it,’ is the line that sticks with you, ....

And now begins the real Brexit - to grasp what the hierarchic rule is all about

Daniel Hannan apparently present his new book by this fascinating article The Norman Conquest was a disaster for England. We should celebrate Naseby, not Hastings, The Telegraph, 14 October 2016.

The Battle of Naseby (1645)

The Battle of Hastings (1066)

The Norman conquest of England

Hannan says.
The Norman Conquest was a cataclysm for the English people. After 1066, ... Castles, until then a rarity, sprang up everywhere. ... these were not defences against a foreign foe, but instruments of internal repression, ... More telling, though, is the political vocabulary introduced under the Normans. Out go witan, folkmoot and folkright. In come fealty and homage, fief and vassal, villein and serf. The progress toward personal liberty, free contract and equal access to the common law was suspended. ...

witan "to know"

folkmoot "a general assembly of the people"

fief, feudal duties


Feudalism


So, when politicians are able to openly criticise at least the outer layer of the established stupidities of to just obey; it gets closer to openly talk about the real core of the terror.

One more example of the present confusion and that there is a beginning insight of that there is a confusion

Lies, fearmongering and fables: that’s our democracy , People power can challenge the status quo, but only if we understand our political system has inherent flaws ”, George Monbiot, The Guardian, 4 October 2016.


My Comment

The REAL problem is that George Monbiot and others granted a monopoly of to write in the massmedia simply refuse to say anything about WHY the political system, or to be more correct the Western worldview, is flawed in order to maintain the present order.

In short.

Useless production of complaints is made to appear as valuable critique in a culture that is based on that there cannot be any change.
