Story 21 - 'Empty' People
page 135

      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 is anchored."
      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 might."
      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 empty.
     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 empty.
      "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 society."
      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 universal good."
      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.
