Matrix Of Control: A Short Tale About Society We
By Joe Contrarian
What is the society we are living in like? We
think, we know our neighborhood, friends, if we really have any, and
definitely we know or at least we think we know something about our
close relatives as well as extended family mostly through the
personal experiences of our lives but also through the narratives
that are proliferated among our family members about the society at
large and ourselves within this society.
What about the society at large? Do we really
directly know anything about our society beyond our professional or
commercial relationships with strangers, mitigated by money or
advantage? Do we realize or understand our own role in the society
beyond narrow family ties and responsibilities?
Are there true human experiences and not fat books
of lies, aphorisms, innuendos, misconceptions and omissions
supposedly about politics and society, the only source on which we
base our entire social worldview?
Is it not the society we live in really our
society, meaning that we, ordinary people, create it and control it
or at least conscientiously support it in any meaningful ways?
There are no easy answers to the above questions.
But we do not worry much, since we know we don’t have to know all
those answers to live our everyday lives, which we believe to have
special meaning or we wish to have special meaning, purpose for us
alone and we vaguely sense, if not conscientiously choose, what such
goals are or should be, hoping that they would be attainable.
Sadly, all of it, a nice tale about humanity and
the life struggle, is just an illusion we ourselves help to feed
into our minds. The necessary illusion of our own control over our
own lives within our own community or even in our own society at
large, we are truly oblivious to.
So what is the real society we live in? Is our
place and role in the society solely mitigated by our inherited
social position, skills, talents, our hard work, dedication and
determination and lots of good luck or random chance? Or are we
imprisoned behind invisible bars of our knowledge, beliefs, choices,
traditions or intellectual horizons, all arbitrary factors instilled
in us from within our society making us insensible to the great
indiscernible walls of desirable comfort and stability of our mind?
Unfortunately, nobody can be told what the society
really is and unlike the famous Matrix, nobody can see it with his
or her own eyes either, since we cannot simply unplug. What we
really have are bits and pieces of societal structure in itself, a
substrate separated from myths and obfuscation, examined in
“extention” for what it actually is and not for what it does.
There is ample documentation for the latter while
scarcely anything about the former.
All we know for sure is that society we live in is
Fortunately, there were men and women in the past
such as Michael Foucault and others who understood the fundamentals
of society with its holographic structures of deceit and suggestive
hedonistic innuendos disguised as the principles and values as well
as its perfect dynamism of control. And they woke up and freed few
people from beautiful delusion of the radical individualism, as well
as from profound believe in the possibility of self-effacement deep
within the society.
And from them we know what we know.
It is mostly accepted fact that “advanced”,
so-called agrarian and/or civil society is organized into political
system imposed by minority of ruling elite.
Below there is presented a brief review of a model
of structure of the society under dynamic control of the political
system that is thought to resemble the society we live in. While
plausible, this model was developed under the restraints of
deficient or often insufficient data obtained from complex dynamic
The issue of emergence of the elite itself is
more an issue related to the evolution of our human species and
individual advancement processes as well as its conditionality
regarding social development, generally similar across all higher
order species and hence will not be discussed here where the focus
is being placed on already developed society.
Structure of Society vs. Moral Attitudes.
Every society consist of a continuously emerging
elite, a group of often interbred families or clans that persuaded
themselves that it is their prerogative to control the rest of
society, seen as animalistic masses, immoral abominations of
humanity. They see themselves, whether they admit it or not, as
reluctant saviors of the humanity, against all odds. Their
self-proclaimed objective and perceived necessity is to become the
absolute moral arbiters, life and death decision makers. They
believe that they are Hegelian type “ubermensch”, supermen, meant as
the only true humans, the building blocks and foundations of perfect
social order and power structure able to support it. Hence, to hold
power is their solemn duty, a burden they must carry for higher good
of the society at large.
They consider themselves not as much better humans
as they just consider the rest of the humanity as a certain earthly
creatures, items of natural world, a resource to be harvested or
exploited in any way they deem necessary.
Such attitude permeates all decision-making
processes within the ruling elite, all understood not as means of
survival and dominance but as a self-sacrifice for the higher end,
for higher purposes than their individual well-being, one of the
paranoid delusions deviously nurtured among themselves.
In their obviously psychopathic or even psychotic
state of mind it is all about binary moral order, the good and the
evil, absolute truths and absolute values, incomprehensible concepts
to those who don’t belong, those unable to achieve higher state of
consciousness beyond any notion of forethought or petty human
concerns. Seen as a matter of the objective reality, their law is
their will and their morality is their immediate need or benefit,
all other considerations rescinded. They regard themselves beyond
any earthly moral insecurities or doubts as an expression of
ultimate justice and absolute truth.
What is astounding that all those assertions are
not developed and accepted by the ruling elite as much as dogmas of
their rule but rather as a rational conclusion based on the results
of numerous experiments and detailed observations of the society at
large and its behavior. The ruling elite rationally concludes that
their rule is the only thing that works for all society.
The idea of the ruling elite as a conspiracy in
common meaning of the word it is not, since they have no specific
plan of action or even specific ultimate objective to be achieved,
short of holding onto the power and expand the limits of control by
whatever means available. What they use are the methods and
techniques of manipulating of the population stratified into the
casts or classes via propaganda of the abstract concepts of economic
development, political process, social policies, law, religion,
science, vertical mobility, sports, nationalism, racism etc., and in
cases when it fails they use raw brutality as the ultimate
expression of “innate” morality of their power.
So who are they? What are their names? Here is the
problem. Even in the historical perspective most the names of kings
or emperors who supposedly ruled the world for thousands of years,
as many results of scientific research indicated, have been likely
made up names for certain groups or elites that actually ruled the
ancient states. Such a arrangement sometimes was chosen for security
of the individual who was in charge but mostly it was to cover up
the existence of committee of rulers, a ruling class. Such assertion
is not at all controversial since it is very well accepted fact that
for example, mysterious priestly class even when technically not in
power, was always influential power player in the economy and
politics for millennia and still is today.
However, even in the XIX century new emerging
power elites in the US and elsewhere where so convinced about their
benign character that allowed some kind of interaction with the
society at large through promoting those so-called towering figures
of industrial revolution such as Fords, Rothschilds, Carnegies,
Rockefellers etc., multiple names for the same symbol of ruling
But this changed drastically at the end of the XIX
century when political movements of masses, of what they believed to
be benevolent human refuse, a fertilizer of their power, suddenly
threatened the very foundation of their rule. Ironically it was a
side effect of their own nation-state ploy devised after French
revolution shaken ruling elites to the core.
Following advice of Sigmund Freud who in early 20th
century came to the US not really to lecture about his dream theory
at US Universities, though he was invited numerous times to do
so during his over one year stay and finally in 1909 gave so-called
“Clark” series of lectures on Psychoanalysis, but to warn the
US and the world elites to change their ways, step back from the
spotlight and return to their ancient obfuscated ways of ruling the
world or else prepare to be overthrown by massive political
movements of ordinary working people all over the word.
It was not easy but after a year of often secret
(handsomely paid for) meetings with the representatives of ruling
elites in the US they heed the call. It was not as much because they
were scared or felt particularly threaten with Armageddon but more
because Freud presented the specific program to mitigate such a risk
cheaply and effectively using substantially improved methods of the
social control and manipulation he developed during his
psychoanalytic practice in Vienna.
In just few years so-called corporate reforms
promoting fantasy of dissolution of strict and unified corporate
control structure run by an individual, fantasy of dissolution of
singular responsibilities and corporate accountability of an
individual, have been introduced to obfuscate the calcified
corporate structure which stayed the same, unaltered.
The so-called anti-monopoly laws (Clayton
Antitrust Act) passed late 1914 to break up huge corporations,
trusts and cartels were instigated and used as a part of Freud’s
plan to obfuscate ruling elite role or even their very existence and
shield them from coming political tsunami. The creation of the CIR
in 1912 to diffuse labor tensions, establishments FTC and FED in
1913 against all the protest and privatization of central banks all
over the world were steps into dissolution of the responsible
The core of Freud’s program that drew attention of
the ruling elite was a discovery, in comparison to society at large,
of much higher overall morality of the poor and working class
people, than previously assumed, stemming mostly from development of
the work ethos and camaraderie in suffering.
In the simplified form it was about the very high
threshold of proof of causal relation between action of an
individual and the effect on the poor or working people before their
political and moral attitude changed. In other words new individual
in the society if placed in the position of authority immediately
gains substantial trust of the people, gains instant credit of
his/her honesty and the good will given to anyone as a recognition
of his/her human dignity. Freud called it a virgin moral naiveté of
working people, the fundamental believe of goodness of another
individual human being, a concept alien to the ruling elite who
subscribe solely to the stringent class morality.
And hence, we saw proliferation of completely fake
and useless boards of directors, invention of CEOs, COOs, etc., and
other meaningless acronyms that obfuscate the obvious. Also, seems
unlimited and often superfluous, the multi-level corporate
management structures proliferated among the corporations, followed
by an avalanche of company splits or mergers and the introduction of
ridiculously obfuscated capital structures of multi-leveled holding
companies into corporate capital investment world, that all but
dissolved into the fog a concept of the ownership even for
shareholders of the publicly traded companies, with no real
influence over the company they formally own, no matter how much
shares they bought.
A new era dawned on the World. From Ford, proud
sole proprietor of entire billion dollar Ford company who himself
was making all the decisions down to the production line to the
featureless corporate bureaucrat, a temporary puppet face of the big
boss, a grunt that can be blamed for all the bad decisions, and can
be swiftly punished for them so those workers and their families who
suffered greatly can be confused about who was actually responsible
for their misery, and they will not blame anyone without a direct
proof. It was the proof that the so-called corporate and
governmental reforms aimed to obfuscate and what they consequently
accomplished as an element of wider political strategy to defeat and
destroy the working people movements all over the word.
Since then the ruling elites retreated back to
their historical cloud of the obfuscation and speculation, not to be
seen or spoke about, directing the masses through the social
mechanism of control supported by their propaganda puppets,
courtiers of the system tasked with maintaining of the ruling
elite’s strict control over the population, and running the
matrix-like illusion of civil society, not too horrible and not too
A society run by ruling elites consist of
courtiers’ class, a privileged servants forming a core of the puppet
politics, political administration and the civic institutions,
system security agencies, military, money banking, trade and
economic management and the secular and religious propaganda of
celebrity. These courtiers are often descendants of the former
courtiers with some small contribution from those from lower classes
who are genetically related, most “talented”, “needed”, or are
admitted on the basis of a caprice or curiosity or those who in rare
cases, temporarily cannot be eliminated or killed.
To be included in the class of courtiers one has
to genuinely exhibit certain peculiar sense of morality. The
courtier morality is based on absolute loyalty and submission to the
ruling elite, submission to their goals and methods and utmost
loyalty to implement them without prejudice, without doubt,
hesitation or judgment, to act without any kind of individual
morality, individual moral judgment or doubt since such concepts do
not exist in the courtier class. Any degree of deviation from this
brings to those who dare swift retaliation i.e. immediate death or
rejection, repudiation and total alienation from the class, loss of
relative privilege and most of all condemnation from their kin.
However, this is relatively rare since the self-censoring,
self-limiting mechanisms, the invisible prisons of ideas, within the
class work extremely well.
Courtiers are themselves victims of the ruling
elite, considered as subhuman in need for the guidance, and in the
same time perpetrators of the atrocities among themselves as well as
among the lower classes. They are expected to be mindless
executioners of the moral/social order established by the “chosen
people” of ruling elite otherwise they failed in their duty and are
discarded as a refuse. That’s why, to mitigate somewhat, the
enormous pressure; courtiers are frantic, gluttonous consumers of
the very propaganda they produce by orders of ruling elite.
They are metaphorically liquefying their own
brains to feed their young as well as to feed the poisonous potion
of, backed by ostentatious brutality, propaganda worldview into the
brains of lower classes who ruling class consider a spawn of the
Earth or just all-encompassing natural resources which are to be
exploited to the exhaustion or collapse. Since, in contrast to the
courtier class, this type of indoctrination is mostly unsuccessful
as a tool of controlling the bottom of society, it does not
constitute a major focus of the ruling elite in dealing with the
The massive propaganda that is being deployed
toward the courtier class however, has the main objective, not as
much to suppress “undesirable” ideas about reality they are living
in, but rather providing the avenue of “help” and escape of
tremendous stress imposed by the brutal regime they are tasked to
uphold. The other avenues are provided as well through addictions
and the sin industry always allowed and nurtured by the ruling
elites for this very reason. Courtier class is required to be moral
and to believe that they are moral, whatever “moral” means at given
moment. All for their own psychological relief of tension,
preventing any disruption of their duty to suppress the others.
In general, in contrast to the courtiers’ class
that fulfills the central function in the social system, attitude of
the ruling elite to lower classes is somewhat ambivalent. The lower
classes are treated as a social refuse so hopeless that there is
nothing really that can be done about them though they are trying
hard to enlighten them using their absolute morality of power.
Since its eradication would have been costly and
not overall beneficial to the system control scheme, modern society
also consist of a lower class, the class of serfs or slaves, those
abandoned courtiers or those who quit the system and just slowly
dying on its margins. All those are considered by the elite as low
life devoid of any human dignity, those who need to be organized and
exposed to the external rule of law and revealed morality for their
own good since they do not posses capacity of the moral life.
Opposite to the propaganda revelations spewed over
the lower classes, entire political system that permeates society is
busy not with healing the social ills or bring prosperity to the
population as we know well but rather is busy running a late Roman
style political money theater, a cheap burlesque with no consequence
beyond the curtain call although real blood is flowing on the stage.
Members of the serf/slave class are unaware of
anyone individual from the ruling class short of courtier
spokespeople, borrowed faces of the ruling elite and mistakenly take
on their grievances to the representatives of courtiers’ class,
themselves just up notch on the all-encompassing autocratic
structure of society, with absolutely no real power of their own.
In contrast to what courtiers of the system
telling lower classes, the elites are tasked with no plans or vision
for the humanity and often employ brutal deception of non-existing
political choices or programs stealing the future from countless
gullible generations of the non-people. All such practices are
implemented as means of the control and not as means to any
Any so-called political system that lower classes
are referencing as such; totalitarian, oligarchic, democratic,
meritocratic, aristocratic, plutocratic or whatever other
meaningless names are used, all of them are fulfilling role of
fashionable headlines of endless sequels of one single play, a power
play aimed to assert control, that’s all.
Mechanism of Control.
While the nature of stratification of the ruling
class itself is a subject of speculations and not much of knowledge,
there is strict stratification imposed on other classes, namely the
courtiers and lower classes intertwined within all permeating grid
structure of the social power.
So how is society controlled? How elites are
executing their command and impose their control over minute aspects
of individual lives within the population while leaving an
impression of uncertainty of the future outcomes and illusion of
chance for a social change.
We all already know the answer: It is the rampant
propaganda of individualism, myth of self-determination, illusion of
self-definition and individual will, a tale of uniqueness of the
special attributes which are supposed to be of utmost importance in
the human interactions while they are truly not. The ruling elites
know that atomization of the society is an initial, necessary step
toward assertion of the efficient system of control.
The propaganda erases all we have in common, all
what our humanity really means, namely that we are one, human beings
who share all in unity and no differences are of any important
consequence to our humanity. The propaganda reigns supreme, bringing
us the social alienation and addiction to particular psychological
comfort, making a glimpse into true reality a painful experience we
would rather avoid or forget.
So while we’re convinced, and would even swear,
that we are making our own choices of a career or lifestyle,
personality, character or life philosophy, that we are in control of
our life at least to some degree, we are surreptitiously
preprogrammed and ordered to take our preplanned, respective
position within our stratified and calcified society with no room
for true, meaningful advancement in the existing hierarchy of power
that has been eradicated from our consciousness and replaced with
the fantasy of people’s rule or hallucinations of freedom.
How such a thing is even possible? Would millions
of people need to be involved in such a deceit on massive scale?
Would such conspiracy not be leaked, disclosed or otherwise revealed
to public at large?
It seems ironic but millions of people in the
courtier and lower classes know something about it but they do not
know of it. This so-called conspiracy if there was one, is not
hidden at all, it is everywhere in the plain view for everyone who
cares to open his or her wide shut eyes to see. The true conspiracy
is to make us not want to open our eyes, not want to know, to
dismiss undesirable truths as unimportant or irrelevant to our
“real” lives, to stay blind to the world around us as an expression
of our freedom of choice and self-control.
But why? Perhaps, it is because we all are part of
it, every day of our lives whether we are aware of it or not.
It is extremely hard to perform an act
self-reflection and self-examination finding out and admitting that
we, you and me, could be small cogs in this charade called the
“real” world, agents that contribute to the current state of affairs
in one capacity or another or in one degree or another by adopting
imposed on us by the political system, truly alien goals and morals
as our own family and human values. It would be shocking to discover
that we are imprisoned by our own mind.
It would have been excruciating to realize that
most every choice we ever made was no truly ours, that every opinion
we ever held was not truly ours, that every moral judgment we made
was not truly our own moral judgment but an illusion of it, all for
the sake of forced upon us, social and political system permeating
our lives. But unfortunately that may as well be the truth.
I am far from blaming my own social class i.e. the
lower class of serfs for the contribution to our common misery which
I am guilty of as well, even if those are the facts, but most of all
because the ruling elite wants us to blame one another, wants us to
stir conflicts, wants us to divide ourselves and fight to our deaths
in this senseless cockfight for sole benefit and entertainment of
the ruling class gamblers and to detriment of our human dignity.
The political system run by the ruling elite puts
us into predesignated nodes of the rigid social structure of power
within our stratified class. In this node our position is determined
by our social power relative to the above and below nodes of the
hierarchy of control.
There is a simple basic mechanism that we all
operate under and is based on de facto believe or
assumption that those positioned in the nodes above us are
infallible and those below us are controllable, in the need of
supervision since they lack the capacity to make correct technical
or moral judgments by themselves.
The utility of such an arrangement is extremely
high since it surreptitiously applies our psychological
transposition capability to be utilized by the system of control
regardless of the level of our awareness of such conditionality. In
other words whether or not we know that we are part of the social
grid of rigid dependencies or believe that we are free is irrelevant
in regard to the system efficiency.
The social grid structure sets up certain
autocratic state of our mind where we deeply believe or accept the
so-called “rational” empirical or “spiritual” proof of a superiority
of one human being over another human being and as such the very
precept of such discrimination needs no longer be questioned or
validated, and hence it becomes interwoven onto our moral fabric.
Such a state of mind eliminates any doubt about
those superior to us as well as removes any doubts about our own
superiority, morality or righteousness in our judgments about those
below us in the social structure. As we have been appropriately
conditioned, we consciously or subconsciously believe or accept that
we belong where we are in social strata even if we vehemently deny
Even if we seemingly are encouraged by our
superiors to dream big via means of propaganda of unlimited
opportunities and career advancement, often even when we are young,
but definitely in our in later years, we value the perceived
stability of where we are at, and we act accordingly and that’s the
These are the controversial issues and many
readers may sharply disagree with the above assertions, claiming
that, he/she base their relationships with subordinates on the sense
of partnership and negotiating outcomes and definitely does not
treat his/her superiors as infallible.
It is important to note that when we are talking
about state of mind we are not talking about opinions, principles or
attitudes but the ultimate actions that are being taken. Hence while
we may not be impressed with the decisions or intellectual prowess
of our boss we’re following his directions or at least are concerned
with providing results as expected from us. In a sense, if we do not
accept directly superiority of our boss we definitely accept the
superiority of our job over our judgments about our boss, a typical
psychological transposition in play.
It takes certain state of mind to submit to the
control through specific, concrete actions.
Also as much as we may buildup more like two-way
interactive relationship with our subordinates, the very act of
control over them is the fact of, for example, scheduling of meeting
itself as well as the fact that result of the interaction is likely
a list of approved by the boss, instructions to be acted upon by
subordinates, not the other way around.
The social control is all about inducing certain
acts of subordination. The attitudes are irrelevant. The nature of
control does not always require high-efficiency of perceived
However, when our judgments or assertions about
our bosses or company or church or family, or any other organization
deviate from those of superiority or infallibility while we are
forced to act upon them as they were, very stressful and painful
cognitive dissonance is likely to develop, having capability to
strongly disrupt our lives, likely leading to the addiction and/or
readjustment of our attitudes and in a way surrender and submission
to the questionable authority in order to return to the mental
stability, or inspires us to commit the ultimate act of mental
disenfranchisement or social alienation from the company or
community or a group or family, namely quitting the job, quitting
the Church, quitting the family, quitting the life.
Ability to harness and direct, the enormous power
of alienation of the human being from the society constitutes
the fundamental element of control, constantly utilized by the
elites to maintain and extend their rule over us.
This same mechanism applies to the cases of
subordination to our own authority when cognitive dissonance pushes
us into the state of mind toward acceptance of our ultimate
authority in the relation to our subordinates as a way of avoiding
the internal psychological conflicts and uncertainties. Sooner or
later we resign ourselves and submit to so-called social order and
the structure of control that supports it or otherwise we drift to
the margins of society.
As it is in any pyramid scheme most of us on the
bottom of the social power structure do not have any subordinate
layer where we could impose our superiority of judgments upon but
unfortunately many try to impose their will on the fellow serfs, as
they are strongly encouraged by the power elite, as a way to
alleviate their own enormous stress of being autocratically subdued
and suppressed every day of their lives and as a result they aid the
control system itself.
Such simple social power structure and the
mechanism of hierarchical morality enables, through its chain
reaction, a flow of the top commands to control the bottom of
society efficiently and in the individual form and scope tailored to
the specific addressee of the commands.
It is really not so difficult to understand the
reality of such a structure since it is a structure similar to that
of the military organizations with one important difference.
Aside from the propaganda inspired narratives, the
command and control in military institutions is accomplished via
direct, intelligible order system, that while may not be seen as
rational in itself, actions required to follow that order are clear
with no room or need for individual interpretation.
However in the social power structures at large
the command and control is accomplished differently, via indirect,
vague, imprecise, unclear objectives or milestones, leaving the true
meaning of the order to wild range of interpretations specific to
the individual node identity, function, type, level and position. In
other words in the social power structure the orders are executed
always in the specific context often having different meaning to
different people in different times and different circumstances
which are never clarified.
Surprisingly, such a seemingly chaotic structure
with the false impression of imprecise, variable rules was proven to
be very efficient, not as much to accomplish something but rather to
maintain the effective control over people. For the ruling elites it
is not the results or what was actually done that matter most, since
they have no real plans or goals for the society, but the inducement
of certain actions or behaviors defining how and why its was
accomplished or not, an interpretation of vague order that’s what is
being judged. This is the essence of type of control that could not
be defeated from within.
What is similar however between military
organizations and the society at large are harsh consequences of a
failure to act on the order as it is expected by those superiors,
infallible human beings from the social power node above. It is
rarely about inadequate results, but mostly about the character of
While the command and control could be achieved
easier in the system security institutions such as military or
police, it is not much more difficult to accomplish it within
sociopolitical systems of power with its undefined rules and
However, it always results in certain degree of
corruption of an individual, a deep distrust to superiors and
uneasiness or suspicion of subordinates below, sowing devastating
seeds of alienation despite a veneer of comradery especially
promoted among management/courtier class or even within family where
a grid of social power is ever-present and ever powerful.
That’s what the so-called social mobility is all
about, and what purpose it really serves in the sociopolitical
systems namely the creation of personal uncertainty, insecurity,
uneasiness on every level of the society and on every node of the
structure except for ruling class which is founded on moral hazard
and absolute infallibility as long as lower classes pay for rulers
It could be difficult to accept the following
fact, but all the societal calcified structure, we are talking about
here, are reaching down to the level of individual family, itself
nothing but an abstract construct imposed by the ruling elite,
devised just to enable much stronger individual controls through
means of intimate social alienation.
Such a mode of control is applicable to the lower
class as well but it is even more applicable to the courtiers’ class
where strict internal family power structure, with the superiors and
subordinates, is being considered as sacrosanct, instilled in their
minds as a manifestation of unbreakable family bond, critical for
physical survival of the family.
This is the world where for millennia ever
emerging and fluid ruling classes perfected methods of the massive
social control via techniques of precise dosing of societal
rejection or alienation.
The social alienation is a powerful tool of
manipulation and control, insidiously exploiting our innate need to
belong, to be recognized, respected and accepted, to find support
and to give support, to feel understood, to feel safe and secure, to
successfully participate in the development of society through a
life cycle of learning, accepting responsibility and proliferating
acquired wisdom for the benefit of all. To achieve the satisfaction
or happiness through contribution to the well-being of others.
There are numerous examples of the social control
supporting this particular model of society, from acting upon
fantastic national narratives down to intimate relationships of
mental bondage, while extremely instructive in the understanding of
true purpose of the society and its mechanisms; they are
unfortunately beyond the scope of this short form of expression.
Although, it is definitely worth to revisit sometime in the future.
What is the question?
Is it possible that we live in the society as it
was described above? Could the mechanism of control mentioned here
be functioning in the society we live in? Is it possible that we are
conditioned to perceive our lives and our family in the certain
externally controlled ways? Is it possible, that the way we act is
often in direct conflict with who we think we are?
Do you believe that you live in such stringently
controlled society running by faceless ruling elites distracting you
with all their economic games and political circuses? Do you feel
it? Are you the one waking up from eternal torpor to see different
light? You don’t know? You’re not sure? Know thyself.
Being awaken is like being in love, you know it,
nobody can tell you, you are in love, you just feel it. If you are
truly awaken, you should know it. You should just feel it.
But don’t worry. You know, you don’t believe in
this control crap you just read. You know, you are in control of
your own life. You know, how the world works, and nobody tells you
otherwise. I promise you, by the time you finish reading this
sentence, you will feel right like rain.
