In our emergent technocracy we are submerged in a sea of knowledge. Modern wonders reach their apex in the readily-available stores of knowledge at anyone’s fingertips. Given this seemingly magical commodity was heretofore unknown to vast swaths of now dead humanity, one would think man would jump at the opportunity to educate himself on any and every topic. Yet the reality is quite the contrary, as such a notion of aspiring, latent human potential had its origin in the universalized doctrine of “human reason” bequeathed to us from the Enlightenment. The vast online Alexandrian databases are only perused by a few, with the majority of humanity preferring to opt for a wasted life of the meaningless and mundane. In a strange twist that must baffle the modern progressive, humanity has devolved with the advent of their imagined tech utopia, not risen to the heights of transcendence. The question arises – what is the purpose of never ending streams of knowledge, without wisdom?
Before considering that question, we have to ask how we arrived at this point. For several hundred years, Western man in particular has been firmly convinced of the dogma that humans are blank slates awaiting only the right imprinting, the perfected external educational stimulant, and when the hallowed secular social order finally gets it just right, man would achieve his Promethean triumph. When the coming technocracy appears, universal education and global democratic republics full of enlightened, informed citizenry will lead the way into the great ascent to godhood. With a rising erection, the Enlightenment evangelists even hoped a fully global government would be conjured up, like some benevolent republican idealistic version of the Incarnation out of the Kantian noumena. Instead, it becomes more apparent each day that these ideologues were either duped or consciously evil. The presuppositions of existing modernity and its structures of power are still operating as if the Enlightenment “truths” are axiomatic givens – enshrined discoveries of the heroes of science that are no longer in question, as the verdict of reason and history are fully and ever vindicated. The hard truth is that the Enlightenment ideologues were not only fundamentally wrong, but they were funded by the banking cartel for the purpose of social disorder and reorganization. The dark lords of cash and subversive secret societies atop the idiot demagogues and salesmen were quite cognizant of the stupidity of such notions of Enlightenment tabula rasa anthropology, nevertheless, the endless stream of Dantons won out and even still never go away. All the while, the money power laughs a hearty satanic cackle as the centuries pass by.
And so here we a couple hundred years after 1789 and 1776 and what do we see? We see the intelligenstia operating as if physics and empiricism are actually explanatory “grand narratives.” In total hypocrisy, labeling religion a fictitious “grand narrative” that only existed because it had explanatory power and satiated human fears, these intellectually dishonest liars erected their own alternative narrative that daily assaults me, and which I gleefully dissect on a daily basis: The new Gospel of human ascent through “science.” One thinks here of August Comte’s patterned view of history where man passes from gradual stages of enlightenment, from primitive superstition and paganism, to rational monotheism, to philosophy and metaphysics, to physics and “social science.” Although nothing could be further from the truth as regards the actual working of science and the actual structures of human social order and history, this mythology is still modernity’s Heilsgeschichte.
For Jurgen Habermas, in his Theory and Practice, the Frankfurt School becomes the praxis for the dark side strategy, whose own work is a manifestation of the angst of grappling with the course of the never ending “revolution,” from 1776/1789 onwards, looking into the future for the social engineers to fix man through his needed destruction. I cite Habermas because he is a major Marxist Frankfurt School thinker who links the destruction of the old world to the French and American revolutionaries. Habermas and the rest of his ilk like Horkheimer and Adorno, who worked with Western oligarchs and British establishment to destroy Western social order, export their weaponized disintegration to the rest of the globe. They are significant for demonstrating that evil is not merely an organic, chaotic force that just occurs. On the contrary, evil is very much concentrated, organzied and cunning in its tactics. The key point here is that this technocratic rewriting is a strategic plan for total destruction that had to first be preceded by centuries of revolution and disintegration, prior to what Bertrand Russell and Aldous Huxley called “the final revolution,” intending by this the great revolution against man himself. It is organized, structured, full spectrum subversion, inversion and dominance.
