Tyranny of Ideas

If you want to know why there are wars and revolutions, then look no further than this picture. It is because people like these – people attracted to positions of power, often unelected – meet behind closed doors to determine your future and that of your children. You have no say in it. They know best what will work in your local community.

I cannot find the source of this quotation, but I think it was Chris Hedges who quoted Karl Popper when he said this:

People who are attracted to positions of power are mediocre at best and venal at worst.

Just imagine for a minute, the hubris of these two as they make their plans for how we and our children will live our lives – what medications we will need to take, what diseases we may create encounter, what food we should eat. They believe they know best. You do not get a say in it. You do not get an opportunity to question them (the media and medical fraternity used to do that, but both of those are now largely owned by at least one of these two people below).

They know what is best for your local community

I may be wrong, but I believe Bill Gates truly believes he is doing something good. When he funds experiments in the atmosphere of the earth, he believes he is doing something good. When he meets with elected leaders to put pressure on them to inject their underlings with an experimental treatment against their will, he believes it is a good thing. And he believes if you disagree with him, you are simply misguided.

Two groups of people believe different things. Let’s say one group believes in centralized, global solutions controlled by a small group of clever people. The second group believes in de-centralized control, in which local communities decide what is best for their people. Who is right and who is wrong?

The question is valid, but becomes redundant when one of the two parties suppresses the voice of the other. When one of these two groups control the media, the government, and influential non-profit institutions, the question becomes moot. When one of these two parties act unethically and spreads misinformation, then perhaps the question of who is right and who is wrong is already answered?

Then there is also the evidence, no longer brought to the attention of the public, showing how fragile central solutions to complex problems are. The very type of solutions the two people shown above are now planning to implement in your world.

Sadly, most people believe that groups of smart people will automatically select the best course of action. History shows us that is definitely not the case. As the historian Paul Johnson wrote about the influence of intellectuals – people such as those that Bill Gates funds and controls – on events in the 20th century:

A dozen people picked at random on the street are at least as likely to offer sensible views on moral and political matters as a cross-section of the intelligentsia. But I would go further. One of the principal lessons of our tragic century, which has seen so many millions of innocent lives sacrificed in schemes to improve the lot of humanity, is – beware intellectuals. Not merely should they be kept well away from the levers of power, they should also be objects of particular suspicion when they seek to offer collective advice. Beware committees, conferences and leagues of intellectuals.

For intellectuals, far from being highly individualistic and non-conformist people, follow certain regular patterns of behaviour. Taken as a group, they are often ultra-conformist within the circles formed by those whose approval they seek and value. That is what makes them, en masse, so dangerous, for it enables them to create climates of opinion and prevailing orthodoxies, which themselves often generate irrational and destructive courses of action.

Above all, we must at all times remember what intellectuals habitually forget: that people matter more than concepts and must come first. The worst of all despotisms is the heartless tyranny of ideas.

Please share my blog as widely as you feel comfortable to do. I do not want to sound alarmist, as is the habit of the mainstream media, but I really do believe we are in a battle in which technocrats and political ideologues are attempting to force a centralized, dehumanized and atheist-scientific-materialist way of life on us.
