3. The Collective Consciousness
The perversion of leftist ideologies manufactured by the global elite ironically forbid exercising any free speech deemed as discrimination against an ever expanding list of ‘under represented minorities’. The media has ramped up its efforts to promote virtue signalling as a form of political correctness to encourage people to shame those who diverge from the mainstream consensus, claiming they hold harmful opinions that do not represent the majority and which therefore constitute a form of discrimination by discouraging unity.
Notions such as ‘white privilege’ and ‘toxic masculinity’ are being firmly being embedded into the collective psyche, attempting to hold entire demographics accountable for the actions of a minority, ironically fuelling the division it proclaims to be battling. Through enacting anti-discrimination policies, free thinking can be made punishable by law, coercing the population into adherence to politically correct virtues that are a smokescreen for Marxist notions of ‘equality and acceptance’. This has the hallmarks of fascist dictatorships like the Hitler regime that used thought control to peddle its agendas, and so fascism and communism are two wings of the same bird, expressed at either extremity of the ideological spectrum.
The control of information and suppression of individuality gives rise to various belief systems that fuel an emerging collectivist paradigm. Individuals latch onto these belief systems to find a sense of identity and acceptance that stem from disconnection to the authentic self. This is much like joining cliques at school to validate your identity, but to a greater degree of indoctrination. Such psychological manipulation, like that outlined by Edward Bernays, is achieved through exploitation of individual’s unresolved conflicts or blind spots, convincing them they need external authority, which acts like an extension of parental authority, substituting the lack of self-responsibility to take charge of one’s own destiny through self-sufficiency. Individual empowerment has intentionally been made difficult in the current climate due to the inverted power system, yet the collective condition still reflects an accumulation of its constituents unresolved conflicts.
The indoctrination into harmful Marxist ideology, portrayed as socialism, is particularly influential amongst university students who, owing to rampant brainwashing through education and popular culture, will fight tooth and nail to enforce politically correct values that they perceive as progressive, granting them the association as social justice warriors or the ‘woke brigade’. Because such far left wing propaganda was instilled from an early age, particularly those that fall in the Generation Z age bracket, and have been conditioned into the social media culture, the belligerence has picked up astonishing momentum leading to campaigning across university campuses along with social/political statements plastered in windows and along streets.
Those who challenge such views will meet an aggressive tirade from the group mob, who band together in an attempt to destroy reputations and credibility with claims founded upon their ignorance to what those they condemn are attempting to bring to awareness for important discussion. This has bred a ruthless cancel culture which is hard for an individual or group to recover from once caught in the wrath. This has had a damaging effect on the livelihoods of professionals and celebrity figures who can be tarnished through slander at an electrifying pace due to social media circulation, creating a guilty until proven innocent kind of perversion of justice.
Psychologist Jordan Peterson came under fire following a complaint filed against lecturer Lindsay Shepherd at The Wilfred Laurier University, who aired one of Peterson’s lectures on gender-neutral pronouns, from a neutral position of generating student engagement about the effects of pronouns on society’s perception of gender. A complainant claimed such discussion was discriminatory and insensitive to minorities who should be identified as their desired pronoun.
This scrutiny was extended to Peterson who defended his stance that adherence to such pronouns would set a chain in motion whereby an ever unfolding list of minorities could be added to the classification for preferred pronoun use, and that enforcement through legislation and university policy sets a dangerous precedent, which also threatens free speech. After sufficient backlash from the public in defence of the two lecturers, the universities rescinded their stance and The Wilfred Laurier University issued an apology after the complaint hearing was secretly recorded and aired to the public. Since the incident, Professor Peterson has gained notoriety for his defence of free speech and criticism against restrictive anti-discrimination bills under the Canadian Human Rights Act.
Such incidences have stimulated vital dialogue about the perversion of traditional liberal ideals, which are being indoctrinated into the general public, primarily through the younger generations who are more impressionable. This is with the aim to homogenise the population through destruction of individual, national and cultural identities, brandishing any such identifications as right wing extremism/nationalism. This is an intentional perversion of the feminine principle, using emotional manipulation to tag into wounds related to perceived injustices as a result of distortions of the masculine principle that have bred the prevailing patriarchal, hierarchical structures of which we are familiar throughout modern history.
This disproportionate system has triggered a response in those looking for greater distribution and equality, which is being exploited by the social engineers as a form of psycho-spiritual warfare to keep the population divided, blaming one another for their misfortunes. Such manipulation fuels civil conflict, justifying more totalitarian intervention and ushering the global population even deeper into submission under a global governance now masquerading as collective development.
In reality, most people experience the same struggles and have been manipulated by the same force, albeit through different expressions. There are positive components to both conservative and liberal values that can be integrated and applied. When exploited by authoritarian control, this leads to identification with the polarity that best favours the individual at that time, often coming at the expense of the other group, who are left feeling underrepresented, and this fuels negative reactions. We will see the pendulum swing across the ideological spectrum until we recognise and synthesise the best aspects of both.
This is the situation humanity faces going forward and it is each individual’s responsibility to decide whether they want to forfeit their individual autonomy in favour of a centralised governance that gains its power the more that individuals consent. For the time being politicians remain as the government but this could go in one of two directions depending on the collection of individual choices:
Should enough individuals decide that government has too much power and seek to restore grass roots influences, we may see government decentralised in favour of a more distributed system. This could be through division into smaller communities where community elected leaders are responsible for a lower number of people. Their actions would be more transparent and can be held to account, whilst decision making processes have to undergo sufficient public debate, reaching a decision that is fair for all. It may be that a different way of living evolves altogether that doesn’t involve government but utilises the skills of the everyday person to work in harmony free from all authoritarian control. There may be a rise of communes around the world based on mutual ethics and perception.
At the other extreme, technological control will continue to render the power of politicians obsolete as the technocrats step in as the new authority. With this power comes the ability to hijack consciousness through AI and entrap billions of individuals under the control of a tiny minority. Whilst some individuals may jump at this opportunity, mistakenly perceiving it as progressive, others may not be so compliant. This will result in a dichotomous split in a population of mutual disinterest. From this, there could be a number of potential outcomes.
Whilst community values/ideals are important in any functioning society, the emergence of group think through identity politics is threatening to individual autonomy when it homogenises the population within confined perceptions and brandishes any divergences to that as a threat to the harmony of that group(s). When individuals are expected to adhere to the rules or conditions of a group without question, these become cults that aren’t permitted to have free thought and a self-governing destiny. This has been the root cause of all religious conflict. What starts out as a reasonable set of moral standards becomes a weapon to condemn and even kill those in opposition, and for this reason religious (and ideological) wars have been responsible for the overwhelming majority of bloodshed on this planet.
A cult is formed around a specific set of beliefs which its members have to subscribe to. This translates to particular codes of conduct and behaviour which restrict free thinking and independence. Within a cult there is normally a hierarchical structure with different levels of power and accessibility to knowledge. A lot of this knowledge is occulted, reserved only for special initiates. As you go up the hierarchy the level of power increases. This can be used to manipulate and exploit those in the lower echelons, unaware to them. There may not be full transparency of the intentions and purpose of the knowledge, which leads to distortions and misinterpretation. Though promoted as inclusive and empowering, the knowledge can be used to fulfil particular agendas and fuels division amongst those with opposing beliefs. Many religions fall into this category, as well as secret societies.
In a network there is no definitive doctrine to adhere to. The individuals are connected based on similarities such as their perception or resonance. Every individual has autonomy and the freedom to share ideas, whilst any obvious moral transgressions such as personal attacks or deliberate attempts to undermine and destabilise the positive ethic and camaraderie of the group can be easily identified and remedied. A network is more of a distributed structure, though there may be those with greater experience and more in depth knowledge who can act as leaders or mentors. However, this is an unanimous agreement, and the intention is to help one another develop and elevate for the betterment of the individual and the collective group. There is no idolising or worshipping gurus. Everyone is considered equal in regard to their personal worth. Anyone can create a network and these networks can serve as communities that can connect with other communities. Anyone can be part of a number of networks if they choose to.
Globalisation has both an individual and community based component. When we focus on the needs of the self without giving back to help elevate others, we become caught up in a competitive and materialistic mindset that values acquisition of wealth and self-interest over spiritual connection and evolution. However, when we put the requirement for ‘unity’ before the development of the individual first, underlying personal conflicts are not resolved and other systems of control can come into play, exploiting individual’s unresolved wounds and using collectivism as a smokescreen to impose a new order whereby control is still in the hands of a minority.
As long as power is retained by elite interests, there is no system or political ideology that will favour the masses. By their very nature they are wielded as tools for control and to harvest human energy and resources for their own end. The old ways weren’t working and neither would a ‘new normal’. We should resist tyranny in all its forms, without identifying with any divisive ideologies. This involves moving beyond a dualistic ‘either, or’ way of thinking that has effectively kept people divided for so long and kept them distracted from the common enemy. It is important to remember that the root of the problem has both an internal and external component that are inseparable from a higher vantage point, and so there has to be self-responsibility on the behalf of every individual to promote sustainable change.
If we believe that kicking out those in power would resolve all the worlds problems, we overlook personal responsibility and the role we all play in contributing to the dysfunctional expression of the collective consciousness. Likewise, if we deny the reality of the external control system, believing that everything is just an inner battle, we allow manipulation to continue or to take different forms, as history has repeatedly shown us through all the ruling dynasties. When we address and resolve problems on an individual level, this creates reverberations in the external landscape which can shift conditions to the degree of self-mastery and collective influence we are able to attain. Likewise, the more we raise awareness about corruption of power, in all its manifestations, the better equipped we are to know what to tackle and what doesn’t work going forward. Both conditions need to be satisfied.
If we use failed past models as a framework for seeking solutions, we cycle through the same patterns and continue to remain divided over conflicting belief systems. It becomes more about who is right or wrong rather than empowering ourselves as individuals, uniting over a common cause and ridding the world of the tyrants whose power is only that which we give away. Power comes in numbers, unifying against top-down centralised globalism dictated by a minority over the masses. This can always be identified by following the trail and understanding the singularity they pursue. This is an inversion of true community where individuals would determine the direction of their lives and where we respect one another’s right to self-determination through the expression of individuality, free from hive mind.
Abolishing centralised governance may seem unrealistic to those who have become so accustomed and dependent on external control and don’t believe an alternative would be viable. Certain individuals ready to take responsibility for self-sufficiency will have to lead the way for sustainable and healthy living through the formation of responsible communities with shared ideals. The precursor to this is the heightening of self-awareness and commitment to self-work. This is not an easy process but is the only way of removing external power that takes advantage of people’s vulnerabilities and exploits their ego to feed a reality that works to their own demise.
There is no shortcut or external saviour who can do this for us. For those that want to be governed, more traps await. Those who wish to reclaim their mind and elevate their consciousness will move toward a reality where they are more in charge of their destiny. Until healing through psychological integration occurs on an individual level first, the global landscape will continue to reflect this imbalance, inviting in stricter oppressive forces as a compensatory mechanism.
