Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. We have all heard it a million times. It is everywhere in our culture. We are told it is a universal principle. The highest principle. It is so driven into our heads. I don’t even have to finish the sentence and you will still KNOW exactly what I mean. Well, you know what they say, do unto others…
And of course it is a wonderful MORAL and religious principle. But the sleight of hand that those in charge engage in is telling us that this principle is used to create the foundational structure of our political/legal SYSTEM. What a f’ing JOKE.
“Top guys”, in what the state describes as “science”, tell us that man HIMSELF actually EVOLVED in certain ways because of this fundamental concept. This golden rule was “necessary” to survive, and it actually helped people to “weed out” those who didn’t follow it, in their primordial “cooperation” allegedly taking place in caves.
Then, even more supposed “top guys” who are “political scientists”, geniuses who “have studied and written on these issues for 30 years”, “Constitutional experts” appear on our television to opine about how it is a fundamental part of “our” country and our very Laws! And thus this “truth” comes to be “enshrined” into our text books and into our government indoctrination that runs all the time. In school, movies, T.V., magazines etc. etc. So the people start to believe it.
All my life I have laughed whenever anyone tried to tell me this nonsense because it is so patently NOT true. Our system is clearly NOT built on this principle, and it is clear that it is not the best system to get what you want in this world. The “best” way to get what you want is to convince everyone ELSE that you are completely on board with the whole golden rule thing, while you secretly screw them over to get what you really want. That is actually the “BEST” system.
People assume I’m kidding when I tell them this. Lots of people reflexively parrot back another saying they have unknowingly memorized, “that’s silly Legalman, that could never work and it is WRONG to do that.” I always just laugh. Really? It could NEVER work?Of course it can and it does work all the time. Selfish people use exactly this technique… Exactly.
In fact people see this in practice all the time in their personal relationships, but refuse to believe it is operational at the highest levels. Pretending to believe in the golden rule publicly while acting privately in a manner that only helps the individual and screws everyone else IS highly effective.
But but but Legalman, if it’s wrong it’s wrong! Oh, it is? I see, and EVERYONE agrees with you, right? Keep believing that my naïve fellow inmate.
Remember, we are NOT talking about morals. We are talking about what would be the most effective, especially in a political/legal arena. So I am talking about power people, imposing your will on others. And what is the greatest system devised to impose your will over the most number of people??? Come on now, you know this answer. That’s right, our friendly neighborhood governments.That is all government is. It is power. It is the authority to coerce if someone doesn’t agree. And the real masters who use it to control things will do and say whatever it takes to continue to maintain that control.
Take a very close look at the following quote from Plato. It holds the key to why those in power have no problem lying to you and sleeping like a baby. I suggest you read it closely several times.
They say that to do injustice is, by nature, good; to suffer injustice, evil; but that the evil is greater than the good. And so when men have both done and suffered injustice and have had experience of both, not being able to avoid the one and obtain the other, they think that they had better agree among themselves to have neither; hence there arise laws and mutual covenants; and that which is ordained by law is termed by them lawful and just. This they affirm to be the origin and nature of justice; —it is a mean or compromise, between the best of all, which is to do injustice and not be punished, and the worst of all, which is to suffer injustice without the power of retaliation; and justice, being at a middle point between the two, is tolerated not as a good, but as the lesser evil, and honoured by reason of the inability of men to do injustice. For no man who is worthy to be called a man would ever submit to such an agreement if he were able to resist; he would be mad if he did. Such is the received account, Socrates, of the nature and origin of justice. — Plato’s Republic, Book II.
Do you see this? Do you understand it? Do you comprehend what this means? You might want to read it again. Any and all conduct is justified to get what you want under POLITICAL theory. That is the BASIS of real political theory.
Learning this is all part of a “classical education”. But the government has taken over your education and the curriculum. And guess what? none of this is taught anymore. And that is not an accident.
It is clear to me that people don’t know and don’t want to know how FUNDAMENTALLY and intentionally mis-educated they are.
But look again at the mindset that those in charge teach their own children with a classical education. To give in to another when there is no necessity is “MADNESS”! That cooperation in the political arena is born from NECESSITY because of the inability to coerce another. The lesson being taught in that quote is that each man will resist, and if he can inflict harm on you, then you may need to cooperate. Not that it is BETTER to cooperate if you can MAKE others go along, by whatever means are at your disposal!! Do you understand how important that distinction is?
Oh, and there is a LOT more in there, and that is just ONE tiny book. There are discussions about “justice” and what it is. “Justice” was generally accepted to be whatever was in the interest of the ones IN POWER. Yes that was a commonly understood and discussed theme. Think about that one. Imagine having discussions about THAT in school. How differently might the people think? Do you see why that is all washed away by the state in its curriculum of nonsense and meaningless fake fact memorization that has replaced LEARNING HOW TO THINK?
Now instead of still using obvious force, those in power discovered a long time ago that creating an illusion of cooperation through “democracy” is more effective. So those in charge pretend to submit to the whole system, and thereby get the citizen/inmates to submit through deceit. Privately, they think YOU are crazy to go along with this laughable system of “waiting to vote” while a teeny tiny group run it all. They obviously and openly rig the system and yet nobody ever says, hey, the emperor has no clothes. And those in charge believe that if the people are stupid and docile and crazy enough to submit to this system, well, then THEY HAVE IT COMING! They feel justified. Do you see this now?
People are led to believe that their governments and the people in the world who truly own and run it all, are just smarter and work harder, etc. etc. That is laughable, they are all cheating! They tell you lies to convince you to keep playing by the rigged rules they have set up and which they ignore. They don’t confuse social political theory with Religious and moral theory. They use them against you. They don’t submit.
Why is it so difficult for people to accept this when the evidence is so in their face? Why do they endlessly make “excuses” to explain away the lies that they see everywhere? Why do they always always assume that things are accidents, or “one bad apple” or a “one off situation” or the result of incompetence, or bungling or bureaucracy? Why?
First and foremost, is the natural psychological tendency in humans to “project” their own “golden rule” mindset and world view into others. Most people are decent honest people. And that works against them. Those in power are not decent honest people like YOU. Projection is a very fundamental and powerful force. If you are not on guard for it, you will do it naturally.
Second, those in power do everything in their power to reinforce the notion that they are like you and that our political and legal system is BASED upon the golden rule. That way you think it makes sense and, so you assume it is a mistake or one off, etc. etc. Then they follow this up by making sure to laugh at any person who suggests that maybe it isn’t all an accident. They are “conspiracy kooks”.
The real beauty of it is that once the system is up and running, the duped people become confused because they are constantly confronted with obvious lies and treachery, and instead of seeing them as a window into the real system, the people ACTUALLY NATURALLY do the work to continue to cover up the reality! The people themselves start coming up with excuses and explanations to make the observed facts fit with the projection they are doing. The people do this to avoid the crippling cognitive dissonance that occurs when they start to see the reality. It is too much for them to handle. Those in power know all about cog/dis’s effect on people. And they use that knowledge to continue the game.
That is why when confronted with the obvious systemic lies that exist the people mindlessly parrot back more lies they have been TAUGHT to avoid the simple explanation that it is all basically planned. They say things like “if any of this was true” that “everyone would know”, and that “you could never keep it secret” and on and on. The power structure has been sure to PUT those thoughts into the peoples’ heads. Do you see that?
People who begin to become aware of the “game”, become angry and start flailing around to find an answer to explain how “normal” “people”could ever do “this”, i.e. they seek an answer that makes sense with the projection they are doing. Those in charge anticipate this and they are waiting with their controlled opposition. They make sure to offer every kind of theory, except the real one, to “explain” how those in charge could “be so bad”.
Some people even start to believe those in charge must be “reptilian shapeshifters” or some other alien. The cog dis is so great that they can’t make sense of how any actual PERSON could engage in such a fraud. Now Could they be shapeshifters? sure. I’m not even going to say that some might not be shapeshifters and psychopaths. They very well MAY BE, lol. But the important thing to see is that you don’t have to come up with outrageous theories in order to explain “how someone could do this?” There is a very simple explanation. Those in charge don’t believe what you believe because they were taught a different theory of political power. They PRETEND to believe what you believe, and thus they control you.
Are you finally getting it? The golden rule is NOT how the world of political/legal power operates. Whatever validity it has in a moral realm, it does NOT apply in high level business and politics or the LEGAL system they require you use.
Do you now see why it appears that the system never punishes the “wrong doers” at a high level? In their world they are not deserving of punishment! Are you starting to see how this foundational principle UPON which THEY ACTUALLY OPERATE, forms the basis to EXPLAIN, why things are all a lie? They lie to maintain control. That way they get you to submit. They use your own good moral conscience against you.
The reality is that the system ITSELF is designed to be unfair to YOU. Please take a moment to open your eyes and your mind to this truth. It can change your entire world view. You need to wake up to the reality of what is right in front of you.
‘You have eyes–can’t you see? You have ears–can’t you hear?’ — the Nazarene.
It isn’t complicated. They are lying to you because they can get away with it. It doesn’t bother them because they feel justified. Your confusion won’t end until you wake up and accept reality. Then it will all start to make sense for you. Probably for the first time.
I will leave you with this little extra. It is not a legal or political clip, but it is a nice expletive filled rant by a guy with real passion! He is a director going off on hollywood and the fools who support it. This same type of clip could be made about any industry, any political party, and on and on. This is the world. A complete conjob on the average person. I love this guy’s passion. He is fed up.
Who hasn’t been right where he is? Just total frustration at the whole stinking system of lies and fakes! lol Fair notice, he does a lot of cursing, but it is damned funny.
That’s all for now. Take care, live in the light and tell someone the truth about the law.
