Story 21 - 'Empty' People
I explained to the students that these zero-sum philosophies and ideologies aren't actually dangerous to anyone. I pointed out that they really don't have any power in themselves. I suggested that none of them could ever defeat someone like Plato or
Leibnitz, for instance. I pointed out that their destructive effect has quite a different cause; namely, that they take up
space, or more correctly, they demand us to give them space in our
consciousness by throwing away valuable elements of our humanity that should
be there, that should never be denied.
I illustrated to the students what this means.
I took a pitcher that holds three cups of
liquid and filled it to the brim with fruit juice. I equated the contents in
the pitcher with the contents of our humanity, such as; our love, integrity,
generosity, sovereignty; also our intellect, our productive capacity, our
universal good; as well as our capacity for making discoveries and for
spiritual understanding, and with them building an acknowledgement of our
unity as human beings.
That's what a full pitcher looks like," I
said. "But then come the synarchists, and they say to you: What you've
got in your pitcher is nothing compared to what we can give you. So each one
of them comes along and says to you: Pour out from what you have in there,
just one cup of it, and throw it away, and let me fill this void with what is
really good for you."
I mimicked Adam Smith saying: "There exists no principle of universal
good. So, my son, throw that notion away. Greed is where the wealth of society
With having said this, I poured out a single
cup of juice from the pitcher and poured it down the sink.
Then I mimicked Thomas Hobbes saying:
"There is no such thing as universal love in real life. My son, throw
that notion away. All men are evil. Your welfare rests with the rule of
With having said this, I poured out another cup
of juice from the pitcher and poured it down the sink.
Then I mimicked the empiricists and romanticists
saying: "Forget the very notion of Truth, my son. Throw it away! There is
no such thing as knowable truth. Give up wasting your time with that and be
happy by devoting your life to whatever makes you feel good."
With having said this, I poured now a third cup of
juice from the pitcher and poured it down the sink. Then I held the pitcher up
high and turned it upside down so that everybody could see that it was now
Having illustrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that
the pitcher was now empty, I simply repeated what I had illustrated before. I
poured liberally from the bottle labeled "Adam Smith," into a cup,
and poured the contents from the cup into the pitcher; and likewise from the
bottle labeled "Thomas Hobbes" and from the bottle labeled the
"empiricists and the romanticists."
Having done all this, I held the pitcher up
high once again and turned it upside down, to illustrate that it was still
"What makes this illustration different
from the first illustration?" I asked the students.
Since no one spoke up, I answered the question
myself. "The difference is in the way we regard education," I said.
"With the first illustration, I proved to you that the synarchists have
nothing to offer. Every time I filled a cup, there was nothing there. In other
words, any young person who is educated by this system receives no education
at all, even after having been spoon fed on these zero sum philosophies for
all their academic years."
I laughed. "As you have seen," I said,
"the entire contents of three empty cups poured out into the pitcher
added up to nothing, right?"
I paused and added in serious tone that this zero-sum
effect actually creates only half of the problem. "That's why the second illustration
is needed," I said, "because it points to where the real danger
lies. The real danger is, that the synarchists take away everything that is
vital of humanity."
I pointed out that I started the second illustration
with a full pitcher, but ended up with an empty one. "In real life, this
means, that we started with a full and rich humanity, and ended up with every
aspect of our humanity totally denied."
I pointed out to the students that every human
being starts with a full pitcher. I said, "It is not the role of
education to fill this pitcher to the brim. Each human being has its pitcher
already full. This means that the real role of education is to make us more
fully aware of our humanity and its riches, and of the universal principles
that it represents. The synarchists take all of this away, and have intensely
done this for decades. They have literally robbed the people of their
humanity. They have placed their humanity so far out of reach, by means of
crafty lies, that their 'education' actually left them empty inside. They have
dragged society down to the level of animals, and lower than that; to the
level of beasts, of fascist beasts; a kind of default state, because one
simply can't sink lower than that. And that is where the danger lies for
Here I had to laugh again. "The irony is
that the synarchists are not dangerous in themselves," I said. "They
have no real power. The danger is in that we given them the power they seek,
when we respond to their bidding. That is why I call them synarchists. They
are cynical, and they get everybody to run against everybody else in a well
orchestrated synchronized manner. That's what the Adam Smith synarchism does.
It says to everybody, 'greed is good; be greedy and steal from everybody you
can steal from.' And that is what everybody did. The financial 'market' became
an arena in which everybody is pitted against everybody else. The divine
Principle of universal good went out the window, completely, and with it the
prosperity of society went out of the window. When Franklin Roosevelt died in
1945, America was the richest nation on the planet, with an economy so
powerful that it could have revolutionized the world. Instead of utilizing
their wealth for the good of humanity, the American people were intensively
educated to become 'empty' people. In that process of becoming 'empty' people,
America destroyed most of its industries, threw its skilled workforce onto the
trash heap, and became the biggest debtor in the world. Before the whole thing
disintegrated, America had amassed forty-thousand billions of dollars in debt.
That is how the Adam Smith synarchists set everybody against everybody else,
in order to eradicate the slightest awareness in society of the principle of
I pointed out that the Thomas Hobbes type
synarchists did the same thing socially, by eradicating the very notion that
love is a universal principle that needs to be manifest universally. I pointed
out that the eradication of the principle of universal love opened the gates
to the Thirty Years War, and to every war thereafter.
I further pointed out that the romanticists
synarchists eradicated the very notion of universal Truth in the same manner;
saying, "There is no truth in anything. This is no such thing as an
underlying humanity. It's all opinion."
I pointed out that with the very notion of
Truth banned, the self-denial of society became so deep that nobody had any
moral strength left to stand in the way of the imperials; not in Roman times,
nor in our time. "Our world has become more fascist than Rome had ever
been," I concluded. "Who even thinks about the principle of
universal good anymore in today's world, and acts with generosity, or even
universal love? The synarchists have enlisted society into their ranks, even
to spit in the face of God, as it were, and we in America hail ourselves of having
become the foremost champions in that pursuit.
