Hooked On Survival, The Origin Of Psychosis Is NO Enigma
Competition for all the wrong things… usually for the worse…
We stated on many occasions that science as we know it will soon find itself at an impasse. Here is another piece of evidence illustrating our position asserting that a profit-driven system is more geared toward control because of the very nature of money. While poor and middle-class people focus on making it to the next month, the rich are always preoccupied with their holdings and asset consolidation.
The consequence of earning money induces the need to continually protect oneself one way or another and forces cognitive functions to remain in “flight or fight” mode because refusing competition is not an option. Studies on the side effects of stress abound and today we all know that stress is a severe health hazard.
So why are we continuing to endorse competition? Why are paranoia and schizophrenia more common in cities?
It sounds really counter-productive to us. We struggle to make ends meet and commit collective suicide in the meantime.
Although the article published by The Atlantic pondering the origins of ‘Urban Psychosis’ could initiate a real debate, its reasoning is flawed as it avoids the real bottom line. The article reads: To many, this provides evidence that cities are universally bad for our mental health — something that chimes with a strong cultural belief that associates the natural world with tranquillity.
People are just lured into moving to cities with the hope to increase their income. Cities, as we know them, are just mirrors of a faulty premise. It is competition that causes emotional imbalances and in cities, competition is even more out of whack.
Our societal structure itself is in its final stage.
Paying to have the right to live is the ultimate aberration. Because when people live under the threat to lose their livelihoods, profits are more likely redirected toward projects that cannot support the betterment of humankind. Such a framework will also be more geared toward the management of control by or for the very few.
It is simply impossible to do good using money and when that happens counter-trends immediately set in to void such effect. This is why humanitarianism does not work. We definitely recommend this link released by Yes Magazine: The Disaster of Philanthropy and Capitalism.
Regardless of where the funds are coming from, the latter creates resentment among people in need while fueling corruption. Of course, capitalist Wallstreet is very well aware of this.
Despite all the good intentions out there, we’ll have to let go of the current system. It will unravel and no matter how ‘prepared’ we think we are we will still have the duty to help our fellow neighbors when the time has come.
And this alone tells us that all our actions must favor the collective.
Sadly, it is because people intuitively know that the greater good is more important that socialist premises are still promoted, though the fact is that as long as competition does exist, socialism is a fallacy.
A money-free system is not socialism nonetheless because such a system, to be workable, has to be completely decentralized and benevolent, which is the opposite of socialism.
So we definitely have a significant issue to deal as our social structure designed by special interests has made sure that we remain hooked on survival as if there is no other choice.
Technology will not save humanity unless it is defunded and offers absolute freedom of choice.
In this sense, AI is entirely inimical to our destiny as a species.
We have to keep the right for ourselves to upgrade our machines until humanity has attained sufficient knowledge levels to decide whether AI is really needed. It is ludicrous to expect General Intelligence to save the day as long as war is not abolished first. At the pace we evolving, that could take a few centuries…
Right now, we are being prepared into accepting the need for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) vaccine certificates and climate lockdowns.
World stock exchanges have turned science into a monopoly. Even more alarming, experts ponder things like ultraviolet germicidal irradiation. Science is obviously neglecting that every living organism has its place in our biosphere. In the meantime, millions of gallons of antibacterial products have dramatically increased the pollution levels of our soils, rivers, and oceans. Not to mention the billions of masks and gloves finding their way into the environment too over time. There always seems to be enough money to fund insanities like this.
It is time that we address all these paradoxes which highlight that our society is increasingly becoming unstable. The origins of societal psychosis are no enigma, folks!
“I want to redefine Darwinian theory. It is not the survival of the fittest. Is the extension of generosity of surplus to other members in the ecological community to build biodiversity. So it’s not the individual that survives, it’s the community that cooperates that survives.”
