A Dose of Sanity:
The Human species often fails to understand things about its own existence. Being that existence is fundamentally imperfect, often (most often due to our reasoning ability) there can be no “total solutions” only “trade-offs.
If everyone in our species were to sit and logically, realistically and unemotionally ponder the actions, reactions, ideas, thoughts, movements and needs of the human species (in all aspects of their being), then there is no other logical conclusion to come to than the notion that the masses in society need to be strategically conditioned (manipulated, brainwashed, as it were, sounds like a power grab, but then I can only explain it in terms that were created by humans, and we often don’t understand that some words we create have both positive and negative connotations to them, even if we never see the other of them) all the time, while maintaining their delusion of freedom (i.e. not directly attacking their volition or their right to what they see as self determination.). That is, in essence what any type of thought is and what all groups attempt to do when they forward an idea of existence and living (or any other idea of thought for that matter). But as humans we do not understand this form of “instinctual” thought. We are all or nothing types of creatures in many ways. Not abstinence, nor overindulgence, but moderation is the way to handle instincts of this nature. We must come to the understanding that strategic conditioning is in some ways an innate part of how we exist within the society we as a species have created collectively. (through all our actions and thoughts).
And so, when it comes to this “strategic conditioning” if moralists can’t do it, those whom think from a truly non-one track minded agenda, those whom can step outside of their own existence, scientists, persons whom can look at the big picture and be really open and honest about what the world society needs (not just certain segments), if these types cannot do it (the ones we usually see as cold, not detached and the like.. and ironically the ones we see as having an agenda), then entities that are more one track minded, like mass-media/corporations and the like will succeed with theirs.
In the world we see today the strategic conditioning is being won by the latter of the two. Humans are at a point in their existence of extreme mistrust and nepotism of all things, especially anyone whom they see as “attempting to tell them what is good for them”
A shift must occur, but the question remains, when are we going to understand that The ‘invisible hand’ in free market and likewise also in free society may be great in shaping the universe, but it can not be friendly to humans; because it’s (fundamentally) Nature’s hand, and Nature doesn’t serve (the) human agenda, it was around long before we were.
