‘The underclass’ and ‘the working class’ (I do not mention the middle class because its only ambition is to join the upper class and eventually the elite and therefore it does not care about the needs of the other two classes) need to unite and remove themselves from the economic system BY CREATING THEIR OWN SYSTEM. There is no other way for them to change their socio economic positions.
There is no point in voting, there is no point in protesting, and now, I am beginning to think that there is no point in exposing injustices, crimes or any other strategies, systems and technologies used by governments to control their citizens. It has not worked, it is not working, it is never going to work.
Voting, protesting and whistleblowing do not work because they CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO PREVENT governments from collaborating with corporations in order to develop and deploy NEW, MORE SINISTER systems and technologies with which to control and exploit their citizens and therefore strengthen the economic system (thus itself).
I believe (and this will require a significant amount of deep research) that the internet (or the digital realm, as I like to call it) is being used in order to disseminate a new kind of propaganda. An illusion that ‘we the people can come together’ (but never that ‘WE ARE COMING TOGETHER’) and that ‘the independent media’ will save us. Unfortunately, no thing and no person will save us, the people (meaning the working class), except ourselves. We the people are the only ones who can save ourselves.
Furthermore, I am starting to believe that certain ‘independent movements’ and ‘independent media channels’ have been created by a number of western governments (US, Canada, Australia, UK, France and Germany, etc.) in order to create an illusion of hope.
Their primary purpose is to sedate people and ensure that people ARE becoming and therefore that (in a foreseeable future) they DO BECOME accustomed to what are intolerably high levels of surveillance and therefore control.
A number of channels provide sophisticated technical data and explain governments’ agendas but do nothing to suggest any kind of practical resistance. Furthermore, if one is a careful observer, it becomes clear that they are attempting to suppress and discourage any form of action directed against the viewers’ local governments.
Such channels inform and pretend to inspire people but do not offer any practical suggestions that could instigate actions that could begin to transform our world.
I believe the only reason why they are allowed to function is because THEY AGREE NOT TO BE THE ACTUAL SOURCE OF RESISTANCE INFORMATION.
‘The underclass’ and ‘the working class’ need to focus their efforts on creating a new system and not on opposing the economic system or their local government, which is the same thing (the corporate government). It is the only way to disempower the elite. Yet that is exactly what those channels seem to be doing: misdirecting their efforts.
The amount of time the underclass and the working class dedicate to improving their socio economic positions is never going to be enough to create any significant changes because the amount of time they are forced to dedicate to building and maintaining the economic system that disempowers them is far, far, far greater.
It’s a simple mathematical equation. Look at the number of people employed in full and part time positions and then determine the number of hours they are forced to spend in their positions versus the number hours that could be defined as their ‘free time’ thus the period they could dedicate to improving their socio economic positions. It’s a mathematical (as well as practical) impossibility.
The problem with academics and intellectuals and any other individuals who exist outside the under and working class sphere and who claim to be willing to help the members of the doomed sphere is that they keep WRITING and TALKING about WHAT NEEDS TO CHANGE and WHY IT NEEDS TO CHANGE and WHO NEEDS TO CHANGE IT.
They provide KNOWLEDGE and SUGGESTIONS inspired by their academic knowledge of the class problem. However, they do not provide THE STEPS THAT NEED TO BE PERFORMED (by the members of the mentioned classes) in order TO TURN THEIR AWARENESS of THEIR OWN PROBLEM (their disadvantaged socio economic positions) into ACTIONS.
‘The underclass’ and ‘the working class’ do not need refined definitions (KNOWLEDGE and SUGGESTIONS offered by academics and intellectuals) of their daily reality.
They need to be taught how to focus on and interpret their misunderstood POWERLESSNESS, DEPRESSION and ANGER, which create a complex psychological condition (and which manifests itself in misunderstood actions, such as: violence, antisocial behaviour, drug dependency, child abuse, sadomasochistic tendencies, etc.) and turn it into ACTION (positive action). Their current actions are loaded with repressed hatred, anger, ignorance, etc., precisely because they are not being taught how to correctly perceive, interpret and adjust their individual and collective psyches and therefore behaviours. Our governments fail to do so precisely because they invest their money in improving parks, buildings and other facilities located in ‘affluent suburbs’, used by the upper class, and the elite, of course.
For example, answering the following questions would be a practical step that could instigate serious action:
What does it mean to be a physically organized unit/group/community, etc. ?
How to become an organized unit/group/community, etc. ?
Once established, what is required in order to become an effective unit/group/community that can oppose the local government and collaborate with other domestic and foreign units/groups/communities?
How to go about creating or obtaining hardware and software required to begin to create a new system (not a revolution but a NEW SYSTEM)?
That is what I consider a serious PRACTICAL SUGGESTION (versus an academic suggestion), or a serious source of independent news and information.
IF WE ARE TO CREATE A SERIOUS SOCIAL CHANGE, WE NEED TO CHANGE THE NATURE OF THE INDEPENDENT NEWS AND COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY.
MORE SPECIFICALLY: WE NEED TO CHANGE THE PRIORITY FROM ‘WHAT ARE LOCAL AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS DOING TO US AND WHY’ (SURVEILLANCE, TECHNOLOGIES, ILLEGAL ECONOMIC ACTIONS, HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE, etc.) TO ‘WHAT ARE OTHER UNITS/GROUPS/COMMUNITIES/ AND YES COUNTRIES DOING TO FIGHT SUCH PROBLEMS AND HOW CAN WE COLLABORATE WITH THEM, AND HOW CAN WE CREATE AND SHARE INFORMATION AWAY FROM THE PRIMARY NETWORKS, AND HOW CAN WE BEGIN TO CREATE A SYSTEM THAT IS DIVORCED FROM THE CORPORATE GOVERNMENT SYSTEM. THAT KIND OF REPORTING WOULD BEGIN TO CREATE A NEW SYSTEM. AN INDEPENDENT SYSTEM.
IT WOULD BEGIN TO CHANGES AUDIENCES, FROM A PASSIVE SUBMISSIVE GROUP OF RECEIVERS, TO INDIVIDUALS AWARE OF THEIR ABILITIES .
WE MUST DEMONSTRATE TO PEOPLE THAT THEIR ACTIONS CAN CREATE CHANGES. NOT MERELY REPORT ON THE NATURE OF THEIR OPPRESSION.
Expressing an opinion that there needs to be ‘a revolution’ (and I will stress it again, I am not for revolutions because a revolution is an uncontrolled chaos, I have survived five years in a war zone and I will never know how or why) is not the same as teaching people how to begin to perform ‘the actions’ that would begin to create the foundation of a new world.
Unfortunately, that is exactly what many ‘fake’ new movements and media channel are doing. They are summarizing and repeating the nature of oppression, ad infinitum. However, they do not provide any tools with which to begin to affect the system that oppress the global viewer.
The underclass and the working class NEED A PRACTICAL GUIDE (A BOOK or similar) THAT WOULD SHOW THEM WHAT PHYSICAL ACTIONS THEY NEED TO PERFORM AS WELL AS HOW TO PERFORM THEM in order to initiate changes that would begin to create the foundation of a new system that does not support the economic system.
