The Great Disparity and the Five Primal Divisions

The Great Disparity The fundamental underlying condition of all ruling classes societies regardless of culture, geography, time, political and economic systems, is that of social wealth and power disparity, namely the rich powerful few versus the unprivileged many. This difference is what We call the Great Disparity. It works the other way around as well. … Read more

The Pimp and the Whore

Sometimes-bronze-sometimes-blonde-sometimes-oranged-headed president Trump gave his State of the Union. It was a speech replete with hubris, warmongering, the traditional brain-dead applause, with the added near-fascistic wrinkle of chants of USA! USA! But the real news occurred several days ago when Trump attended The World Economic Forum — Our once low-key gathering of the global ruling … Read more

Unity at the Top, Division Down Below

In 1862, Charles Hazzard, an “agent” of London “capitalists”, sent a letter to New York “capitalists” associates. This explosive little document became publicly known as the Hazzard Circular in 1886, and was reprinted in The Little Statesman, “A Middle-of-the-Road Manual for American Voters” in 1895

The Anti-Democratic Origins Of Capitalism: Colonial Virginia

Racism and identity politics is one of the most fundamental and effective tactics of divide and conquer in the world since the beginning, and particularly the United States. As the American empire dies down, lower order divisions will be amped up.  Identity politics is being pushed by the Established Order as never before. Traditionally the … Read more

Who’s Afraid of a Universal Basic Income

The idea of a universal basic income is gaining currency (pun intended). The higher orders are afraid. “At the annual gathering of the global elite in the Swiss resort of Davos, billionaire finance chieftains debate how to make capitalism kinder to the masses to defuse populism,” says the one and only New York Times in … Read more

The Uses of Divide and Conquer

At the 17:20 mark of the Corbett Report’s “Questions For Corbett” series,  We find an excellent image of divide and conquer. In fact, it is divide and conquer within divide and conquer. In the video, a worker  proudly rests a shovel over his shoulder as he stands triumphantly on the back of a doctor on … Read more

Down the Rabbit Hole with Capitalist “Rationality”

Richard Thaler, Professor of Economics at the infamous Chicago School recently claimed the coveted Nobel Prize. As a “behavioral” economist, he has helped his colleagues, and no doubt  many Liberals and Conservatives, understand that humans are not wholly rational creatures. We applaud Professor Thaler’s contributions in helping economists understand that “irrationality” is part of the … Read more

Mass Stupidity

In this day and age, at this point in the evolution — or decay — of liberal democratic capitalism, one should be able to say without fear of offense, that to be a rank-and-file loyalist of the Established parties you must be an idiot bred to maximum stupidity. Social stupidity is not the exclusive domain … Read more

In the Time of Useful Idiots

The useful idiot is always welcome to the ruling class. In times of transition they are especially useful as the means by which the Great Institution achieves change in society. But useful as they are, they are, of course, idiots. And through their tragic and easily curable stupidity they could bring both masses and their … Read more

The Ten Commandments of the Supreme Executive

Society is endangered and with it our beloved ruling class. How can We survive without the devotional system we all (if unconsciously) sacrifice to? Our crumbling society is also endangering the very values that prop Us up. What is the religion of today’s decaying ruling class? It is capitalism of course. It is the God … Read more

The Human Anomaly

The human individual is certainly an anomaly in this animal world, perhaps even a rare occurrence in the whole universe. What other being creates a monster called the ruling class that tears apart the very ecosystems — social and natural — which sustains it? What else but the human ruling class can alter the flow … Read more

Libertarian Dreams

The Ruling Class Preservation Society likes The Corbett Report. We mentioned the Report and other supposedly non mainstream media in another post on the shifting political and media landscape. The Corbett Report has done excellent reporting, but it also parrots Libertarian/Austrian economics, which the Preservation Society disavows rigorously (though many of Us at the Preservation … Read more

Ruling Class Democracy Rules

The deterioration of the U.S. is not in doubt. The Global Times of China, mouthpiece of the government more or less neatly summarized the state of American hegemony in a recent op-ed. “The US model represents Western democracy, but it is crumbling, and the resulting social division has become more and more serious.” Political squabble … Read more

Force and Power, Fear and Respect

“People respect force”. If they did, force would not be necessary. In a “democratic” ruling class society, the masses fear force and sublimate it through their respect for “democratic institutions”. True power wins respect and makes force unnecessary, and makes society more pleasant. All social classes are paranoid, as is meant to be, but the … Read more
