Is it as apparent to you as it is to me that the preferred instrument of the corporate consumer slave trade of the 2020s so far is moral decadence? They’ve abandoned previous methods of sensory excess or Hedonism. Lately, they’ve employed the shackles of altruism, reinforcing their customer’s moral backsliding by offering pardons for their sins. Behavior and values of any kind are permissible as long as you remain an advocate of righting some injustice for the oppressed. It does not matter how indefinable this definition of “oppression” may be. Taking a trick straight out of the Little Red Book, these global elites keep the common man common, through the subtly of state-prescribed altruism. In a word, Communism. By projecting this moral superiority, and perhaps soon to be a state-enforced obligation to accept these morals, they gain the advantage of limited competition. “You don’t practice these morals? You cannot participate in this market.”
These tactics run deeper than commercials featuring homosexual co-parenting or enthusiasm for obese underwear models. Deeper neo-revolutionary undertones are resisting traditional civil and social authority. State-sponsored altruism is working to undermine legacy methods of cultivating life, liberty, and the means of pursuing happiness. These undertones work to achieve some autonomy in thought and deed, values that went unmentioned in the constitution of the United States. They are resisting something that wasn’t giving resistance in the first place. Oppression is imagined and corruption fabricated out of thin air.
Simultaneously, the elites are incubating themselves from the toxic air permeating their outlets. They are not allowing this dialogue about oppression, systemic corruption, or decadence to flow freely around their dinner tables. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates weren’t allowing their kids unfettered access to the internet. Consider that for a moment. Limiting your own child’s exposure to a Blue’s Clues drag queen parade may signal to the neighbors that you advocate for the beheadings of gays. And that’s why the same elites don’t want the public to discover that you could define many pillars of their norms and values as “traditional.” The same values centuries of American generations have used to cultivate wealth and virtue are questioned and maligned by the mainstream, while practiced in the privacy of the typical elite’s home.
To be clear, I am not suggesting the “global elites” are synonymous with the Bolshevik Bourgeois as other commentators may prefer them to be. I think it is much simpler to believe they’ve discovered the most profitable means of doing business while sabotaging the competition. I’d place them closer to Phillip Morris instead, if not directly from it. However, it would be dangerous to ignore the emerging political tones of subversion as not initially developed by Lenin and later improved by Mao.
We live in a corporatocracy, and politicians rely on big business for campaign funding. There’s an identical PSYOP in political constituencies. It’s not that they want you to act immorally, but it’s in their best interest if you do. “Morals for thee, but not for me.” They want to be your savior; they want you to beg them for forgiveness. They are the Pharisees and Sadducees of this Neo-Jerusalem with the government as their new religion.
Be mindful that the subversion we are experiencing in our culture is not a cabal of colluding reptilian pedophile billionaires. It’s a global coup of corporate competition against the serf. Meanwhile, an ever-growing population of self-made nobles has been germinating in the United States for the last 250 years. The corporate king has grown too drunk with power and attempts to subvert the nobles’ influence by proselytizing decadence. How? Through subtle innuendoes in consumer consumption. This power contaminates fields of sprouting liberty in American youth with the diseases of Gnosticism, codependency, and State-Sponsored Altruism. It is time for a New Magna Carta, limiting the reach of big business, tech, and government into our culture. The nobles must be willing to stand up and be outspoken. The king has no clothes on.
Author’s Note: I think it is reasonable to recognize this New Magna Carta in the form of the blockchain.
