THE MORAL OBLIGATION OF SOCIAL AUTOMATION
November 19, 2008
When was the last time you had an original thought – one not implanted by media, politicians, parents, schools, religions, books, or computer systems? Are any of your opinions really yours, or where they fully developed, albeit unconsciously, by any number of social or cultural sources? In essence, are you merely a perfect parrot, or are you a person with the creative capacity to have individual thoughts, will, and opinions?
It’s an interesting question to ponder. Is any human being capable of independent thought or expression of thoughts without full histories and religions of former opinions, cultural beliefs, and political conditioning? For certain, all people are raised carrying implanted belief systems. This is an inescapable social condition, but are we capable of discernment to a point where we can invent unique and new ideas? We would hope against hope that newness lives, but human history does not support such hope.
We witness another transitional period in history, which has mutated our political system into a new system called whole world governance or a one-world government. The new governing structure is now a goal realized with all infrastructures raised and functioning. As we experience this new system, we can hopefully understand that the former constitutional system, under which many were partially raised, is now over. How do we know this? Because executive orders, signing statements, directives, and other such powers of presidents and state and regional governors – both elected and appointed – have neutered the powers of the former constitution much like communitarian international laws, which trump national laws. In a nutshell, the former laws of the former Republic are, in truth and fact, history. And history tells us that transitioning to new dynasties, to new politics, and beneath new social standards, governing bodies, and conditioning brings to bear new rules, regulations, laws, control mechanisms, economic conditions, and therefore, strife - if not chaos – as we are now witnessing. Major change, of any kind, is difficult for human beings – particularly those without jobs (Have you read the history of 20th Century Germany lately?).
It is certainly fair to say that many saw change coming and were sounding alarms. It is also fair to say that radical change was desired by many American people, and that, historically, political pendulum swings left and right. But our current situation is unique in that global domination is underway; not to say that global domination has not been attempted in the past, but today this domination has taken on the character of moral authority enforcement vs. plain and outward dictatorship. But one cannot help but question the world’s new paramilitary systems, mercenary corporations, the constant global wars, and war-based economies and the apparent impending of new conflicts, which have given rise to homeland military drills – multiple homeland military drills – over the past seven years. The question begs – what exactly is impending as a result of our desired radical changes?
Social control of the frightened and confused is not a new undertaking. Conquering, after all, is historical. But new-breed, contemporary conquering requires a modicum of tact in a communications-based world. Hence, we have been force-fed and economically strapped to the greater good, consensus, visions, community service, volunteerism, and mandatory service. Opinions about life in general have been financially altered to force-promote such social expectations under the new regime. And it is perhaps at this juncture in history that one might consider where and how your opinions have evolved. How, for instance, have your political opinions been affected by tell-a-vision, radio, schools, religion, employment, and even parents. Perhaps it is imperative to consider the state of your convictions as they stand, as your lives are mandated to change drastically as citizens under new-breed leaders and their moral control agendas. Life, as you knew it, has surely changed for you.
What we know for certain about the new regime is that 1) the ability to own private property is presently ending for all of us; 2) real privacy is technologically a thing of the past; 3) failure to agree with and to function under the rules of the new regime will disqualify you for employment; and 4) your free service to globe and local community is required, particularly if you hope to gain access to work and higher education of any sort. Keep in mind that both political parties approved these messages. Keep in mind that you voted in droves to elect one of these two parties and their self-same agendas. In truth, there was not one iota of difference between platforms. This you shall understand sooner than later.
So as we now live with the results of our social conditioning, the only question to ask is whether or not you are civil enough to be a new global citizen. Have you offered up your personal opinions in sacrifice to the greater good? Will you willing relinquish your private property – meaning your home and/or land for the greater good? Are you partnering with other grantees while willingly and civilly operating as a not-for-profit organization, and at the same time volunteering your time and skills for other interconnected non-profits? And for the good of all humanity, will you unselfishly live according to underclass standards meaning eco-standards of carbon credit living? Is your new morality prepared for far, far greater sacrifices?

Your individuality is as selfish as your individual opinions, desires, hopes, and dreams. Your sense of freedom is outdated rebelliousness and deserving of social punishments. Automation, on the other hand, is desired – your social automation. In order that you become an effective and worthwhile new citizen, you are required to follow all rules of new processes and engagements – and with metaphysical-style and coolly arrogant happiness. Smile, people…you’re on biometric cameras, in far reaching governmental databases, and subject to the social eyes and ears of your citizen watchdog neighbors, homeowners’ associations, helping-hand social systems, and computer self-profiles. Surely you expect all things to get better - civilly speaking. Welcome to The Community.
