This post was inspired by Anthony Napoleon’s Shadow Men. If you haven’t read it, bump it up to the top of your reading list.
The story of the American people can best be described as divide and conquer. Like it or not, there are powerful people our there who control our world. You’re not as free as you think you are. The laws of the land are determined by those with the most wealth and power. Media is used to cultivate public opinion in the right direction.
What you’re seeing in America is the mastering of persuasion and psychological warfare. People are given enough freedom to believe they are free when really, they merely get to choose which slave master they serve. Comfort and security are used to divide and conquer a once strong people.
Divide & Conquer
When you face mighty enemies, it’s foolish to take them on all on at once. This is what the shadow men in power faced as America started to mature. Opportunity for wealth, power, and land was ripe. The American family was also strong.
For the most part, only the man had to work. They held much land. They could do what they wanted.
For shadow men to take control, what had to be done was to divide the enemy. Napoleon, in Shadow Men described how it started. Commercialism and the breaking of family. The farms were starved out, forcing families to move to the cities. But it’s gone much deeper since then.
Feminism added half the population to the workforce, bringing down pay because of the increased laborforce. Quality of child care went down because both parents now worked. This was only the beginning.
The powers that be implemented strategies like consumer credit to help enslave Americans. Diversity while a strong morally, brings more competition to the workforce. If you fast forward to today, the division is that much worse.
The American Conquered
How much can you divide the American people until there is nothing left? We’re not there yet, but you’re beginning to see how far it can go.
The middle class is all but gone. There’s so many people in America that opportunity is getting harder and harder to find. First, the rural communities were broken down. Then the woman’s rights movement doubled the workforce in the 60s and 70s.
I’m not anti-woman by any means, women and men are compliments of each other. Men do some things better, women do other things better.
The peace and love movement dismantled the traditional nuclear family. Broken homes started becoming the norm. Shadow men are far from done. Competition for jobs caused higher education to become important. This caused another division between the experienced and the higher educated.
Racial tension was brought to the forefront to encourage more division between Us. And when that wasn’t enough, the LGBT community was used to divide further. Left vs right, man vs woman, gay vs straight, transgender vs gender, black vs white, pro vs anti-immigration, rich vs poor, black vs police. Divide and conquer until the people are fighting themselves.
These shadow men must be rolling in wealth and power. They have conquered the American people.
Napoleon is very pro “the West.” I don’t know whether he thinks the west could be saved, but he’s trying to enlighten the helpless masses.
I don’t think it can be saved.
Waiting for the Fall
There are too many people, too many backgrounds, too many mobs. Mobs are far from smart. Nietzche said this about the mob:
“When a hundred men stand together, each of them loses his mind and gets another one.”
Let’a face facts, we as humans have the ability to know around 150 people. The American Conquered number over 300 million. You can’t know or care about all those people. On the flip side, shadow men want you isolated and divided.
In the past, people just migrated away from what they didn’t like. Go to the unexplored territories, but today, the world is known. There’s no where to run to.
All you can do is embrace what you stand for and find the people that believe what you do. Establish a new tribe with new traditions and rituals. Become barbarians, wolves at the gate, waiting for the fall.
One thing you can count on is America falling because every great empire has.
Find your people and create your own worlds. Do your best to become self-sufficient. Don’t depend on the shadow men to live. Find your own way.
It’s not easy. Shadow men have done their job well. We’re more isolated then ever. Kids don’t go outside to make friends and play anymore. Adults hardly get together to bond. It’s just one long grind. Go to work 40 hours a week and try to distract yourself from the misery the rest of the time.
We are now a conquered people. The only way to freedom is to find some brothers and make a living outside of the empire. Destroy, dominate, and conquer your way to freedom. Live like the guerrilla behind enemy lines. Strike at the moral of the enemy. If you can demoralize your enemies, you can crush them.
