Flower Power

Every narrative is a lie, every ideology a fraud, every movement a power grab enrichment scheme hiding its actual motives. These are trivially revealed by considering what would result if they prevailed, which is always the qualitative decline of civilization conducted at externalized expense.

Others are burdened for decades with cleaning up the mess once the gremlins are exposed, distracted, or pacified. The bigger the mess to be created for profit, the more urgently it must be foisted upon the public without careful evaluation.

Revolutionaries are neither capable nor interested in benefiting mankind, though they pretend that is their calling, not envious desire for self-advantage by redistributing the wealth of others to their own accounts. Comrades early to join the pyramid will too be promised generous compensation. Why not promise the world?

Youth is disproportionately pulled into fantastical promises, hearing that a utopian world is possible at the small cost of changing human nature or redirecting the wealth of others for the desires of the mob. Youth has never heard of these schemes before, nor considered the follies upon which they are premised. Revolutionaries merely peddle an old scam on the unfamiliar.

"The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and we keep pretending to believe them."

Flower Power was a protest movement that attempted no logical premise, direction, or solution. It solely utilized theatrical spectacles, which by making no claim provides no means of evaluation by which they could be opposed. This became the norm for anti-majority acts intended to revengefully degrade civilization, and was promoted by media because the theatrical format provided compelling amusement. The audience was trained to take such things seriously and were compulsively drawn to them, looking in vain for some deep hidden meaning that did not exist.

Communists had previously ushered in the post-truth era, most successfully in the Soviet Union, and had proven that control could be maintained for several decades until collapse by simply liquidating the educated and organized, and then using fear and social coercion to keep the rest in line. Occasional murder, imprisonment, and ostracism could be used as necessary to keep citizens silent.

There was no need to appeal to reality. Aggressive demands implied expected compliance. The ruled pretended they believed in imaginary progress reached by magic for results that didn't actually manifest, and could never be expected in the real world. The public also pretended that vultures were surely not gathering in greater numbers. Wise comrades realized that enthusiastic cheering was degrading but cheap insurance against punishment, cancellation, and liquidation.

Control of which truths people felt safe to express in public could be achieved with a blitzkrieg of neologisms and new doctrines, presented as obligatory with penalties for non-compliance to follow. Compliance created harm and qualitative social decline, so each individual strove to protect themselves from contact with the system.

"In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to."

The ruling class realized no plausible reason need be given for their dictates, and even under democracy it was easy to enact laws contrary to the needs and preferences of the ruled. Fraudulent explanations, vague explanations, or no explanation at all sufficed. No serious information had to be offered for policies. Rulers were never held accountable and could get almost any result they wanted for the ruled. Obviously harmful choices had no means of resistance. The public could only dread and prepare basic shelter against what the rulers planned for them.

Flower Power informed rulers that they were free to push wacky claims binding upon all, needing only simplistic marketing pushed by media while suppressing alternatives to create fake public debates consisting of only the choice rulers were unleashing. There was no means to respond to a proposal with an innocent "Why?" because questioning would be ignored at best and a flood of propaganda would advance the proposal, no matter how nonsensical.

Opposition is summarily crushed, so no sensible person concerned with themselves or their family will oppose whatever is being pushed upon the public. Some senseless people oppose it and demand rational scrutiny or warn of consequences. Resistance was simply removed rather than answered. Those paying attention saw the response and crept away from engagement, realizing it was not possible to demand an accounting. Disastrous acts would be forced upon the public for the purpose of solidifying control, and nothing could be done about it nor discussed in any significant way.

This created a growing underground of those who understood the demonic power. They gradually became fluent in knowing how to read its words, avoid confrontation, stay silent in public, and maneuver around its looming destruction.

Flower Power in all its forms means the end of any social discourse worth participation, yet the need for man to interact and exchange truthful ideas for shared purpose remains despite failed institutions holding on through coercive control.

We go down, disconnect and build out for ourselves what malignant forms cannot. They will expand beyond their overleveraged capacity and suddenly collapse one day, like all their previous regimes. Their vacuum will be filled by relevant structures no longer blocked by promotional schemes.
