The Phoenix rises from the ashes.
When readers and friends hear the claim “total systemic collapse,” they often refer to such claims as a “conspiracy theory,” and something impossible to project or predict. Those of us who predict such negative outcomes for the present system are castigated as myopic in our views, seeing “everything as a conspiracy.” Of course, it doesn’t matter how many times we on the other side are correct, the general public (whose memory of current events is literally amnesic) insists on not paying to attention to the past, or even recent scandals. And they never will.
So, it doesn’t matter that “conspiracy theorists” (so-called) were right about the technocratic banking takeover, poisoned food and water, bailouts at taxpayers expense, social engineering and feminism, corporate and public welfare, corporate fascism, government-sponsored drug and gun running, election fraud, both parties being bought and paid for, false flag terror events, the phony green movement, balkanization, and countless other bombshell stories the alternative media has broken doesn’t phase those on the other side one bit. Those in the know can be right a hundred times over, and the public will still choose to believe the system, after the system has openly lied to them a hundred times.
And so the reason the present system is unsustainable and will collapse is due to the fact that the system itself wants systemic collapse. To the common man, that seems absurd. The common man, using “common man common sense” assumes that those at the top think like he does. Do they not love their families like he? Do they not seek the benefit of their neighbor and the state like he? Do they not seek the prosperity of the nation? Why, anything else would be nonsensical! The great folly of this line of thinking is precisely why said man is the common man-the vulgar man. The old classical notion of the vulgar man was what was uneducated, lower class and common. The common man therefore has no knowledge of how the world actually functions. He sees the world through the simplicity fo his parochial village consciousness. This was the older notion of the common, vulgar man in the class system.
Supposedly following the Enlightenment and revolutions, the class differences were to be restructured with “equality” replacing the “unfair” caste systems of the medieval world. In reality, as anyone with any modicum of sense knows, modernity simply replaced the older elites with a new class of elites. The transition was thus from the nobility to the merchant class. The economics of mercantilism and capitalism rose to the fore, displacing the traditionalism of the ancient and medieval world. As Michel Foucault correctly points out, the “medieval shepherds” of the church morphed into vestments of white lab coats, where a new “scientific dictatorship” so-called displaced the old hereditary elite. In actual fact, the “scientific dictatorship” itself is not an objective, neutral power subject to the rule of reason, but itself the scientific dictatorship subject to the money power.
From the East India Company to the Rockefeller Foundation, the West is not run by reason and science, but the money power, as Spengler noted. And what Spengler was so brilliant in predicting was the life-cycle of these systems’ patterns of imperial powers based on the analysis of past civilizations. Spengler therefore becomes an important focus for worldview and systems analysis. If humans operate the same over time, then the modus operandi of past empires can be a model for the stages of future empires. The present zeitgeist is one dominated by the money power and merchant class. Read more of this post
