The party slogan for the Oceania government, "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past, "in GeorgeOrwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, published in 1949, sums up the civilizations of the world from antiquity through today.
Who remembers Thebes as the preeminent civilized mind of the day that passed medical knowledge to the Greeks? Or the mathematician Archimedes or the Arab contribution of the number zero, or the revolutionary Galileo or Martin Luther? This is certainly a western perspective driven in part by human lives shorten by bending to the demand of capital in order to ultimately survive versus being also able to broadly study, digest and absorb the history of peoples of the entire world.
During the course of my discovery of some contributions made by the black people of African descent and as a result of that process becoming aware that readily availability of access to such information has been deliberately obscured and distorted, I realized that such an unified effort on behalf of the ruling classes to make this a reality for the rest of humanity is purposeful and perverted. Some equate the enslavement of peoples such the Greeks and other whites as an argument that blacks, particularly black americans should relax their recitation of the wrongs perpetrated by whites for the enslavement of blacks. This is obviously an immoral defense. In my opinion identity politics are for becoming aware of mistakes and the end of repeating them, not replicating them ad nauseam. Rectification of perpetrated ills is the answer not blaming the victims, who have most certainly been victimized.
The ugly dehumanizing episode of black enslavement in our reality is further soiled by arguments that blacks sold other blacks into slavery as justification for whites buying black people for slavery. Although blacks from western Africa engaged in selling africans to white europeans, there were also whites such as the arabs who came to eastern African to buy black africans sold by blacks and white africans to traders. The fact that such practices could transpire for centuries as an economic activity for both the flourishing religions of christianity and islam is representative of the intrusion of religion as a control against people. Upon becoming aware of the islamic role in the african slave trade I found it is an oddity that black americans could be enamored with islam as a reasonable retreat from christianity as is practiced. Now I understand it as a step along the path of throwing off control. The question, "What's The Matter With Black People?", could similarly be asked in another way, What is the matter with americans who have lazily lost control of their government that is viciously enabling the slaughter of Yemenis using american armaments and war technology, instead of marching into the houses of congress and the homes of the sycophants and dragging their sorry asses into the streets to stand trial? Of course they are only tools"but the road to unmasking the true purveyors of evil who must be dispossessed, it is a pertinent question.
The ungodly truth is that religion has bowed down to the needs of the ruling elites and is used by them and their tools to distract and dull the non elites into accepting their circumstances in lieu of a foreborned material life laden with all the silliness of an after life that is somehow spiritual, full of true happiness, love, virgins, milk and honey and on and on - exquisite promises for those living in misery now to not rise up during our life overcome injustice, but to wait until after our physical death to waltz into the magical reality of the hereafter. I imagine that these conclusions would impossible through a regimen of education that broadened rather than stunted the intellectual development of humans across the breadth of human knowledge.
This realization for me provides only skin deep armor which at the very least suggests that one must be open to new information that challenges an individual's belief system. Becoming better armored with historical fact is necessary to dispel the infections of a multitude of psychological operations perpetrated by the rulers that is designed to keep not only me but all non elites in slavery.
The problem has been identifying who are the nebulous ruling elites? I am hope to get some insight into this from what is being reported as a monumental work by Peter Phillips, "Giants, The Global Power Elite" introduced to OEN by Peter Phillips on August 12, 2018.
In my opinion the potential of humans of all variety have been and are today deliberately and craftily imprisoned in many respects. It incredible to me to realize the scope of human genius that is not in the full employment of the evil doers.
I try not to take refuge and solace in blaming the non elites around me for continuing to carry out the work of the elites' divide and rule psychological operations"not there yet. The thought experiment of escaping the phenotype of negroid is expressed in the ultimate reality"I am not a member of any of the factions of the ruling elite.
All the problems of humans are not caused solely by the rapaciousness of the white man although the white man is and has been in the driver's seat for many centuries. Nor should they be attributed to the africans, chinese or russians, or aborigines or any other artificial subdivision of human. We are fortunate that despite the deployment of substantial obstacles and barriers the ruling elites have not been able to destroy the human ability to aspire, create the arts as we rapidly sprint through the fields of knowledge acquired through scientific inquiry and willy nilly applied without thoughtful consideration to its humanitarian impact. Yea though humans walk too slowly through the valleys of the shadows of death expressed as a veil that keeps the elites mostly hidden from view, that veil is slowly being shredded and the face of evil coming into view. We have no reason to fear evil elites for all of the bad that occurs on this world can be laid at their feet. As such, a rod and staff may not materialize in time or in sufficient quantity to avoid succumbing to any one of the deadly sins seemingly bred into humans by the ruling elites.
