#8 To Them, We're All Slaves … or Worse.

In the 1700's (18th century and before), the elites viewed all indentured servants as “slaves” - humans that they viewed as commodities. More than half of all white immigrants to England's North America colony during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries were indentured servants. The elites granted freedom to both black and white indentured servants after serving a specified length of time, typically seven years. The indentured servants lived, worked and socialized together, apparently indifferent to skin color distinctions. The colonial elites, a definite minority, grew concerned about a potential rebellion from the majority non-voting lower economic classes. Consequently they enacted legal measures to divide the poor whites and blacks and gradually the slaves' mutual acceptance of each other subsided. Society was largely composed of servants, landless tenants or small yoeman who owned inconsequential pieces of land that the elite simply did not want. The elites established a “divide and conquer” tactic that still exists in most of the industrial and third world cultures.”

A slave is by usual definition, someone or even something, which depends on a master for direction, a livelihood or utilitarian usefulness. Human slaves are also by definition owned and therefore can be bought or sold. If a person or thing is no longer useful, its owners can choose to discard it; to enjoy the “freedom” of the proverbial societal dung heap, be that the heap of cast off humanity or the scrap heap of discarded articles or machines. Trouble is, even the elites have some guilty consciousness that what they are doing is wrong and therefore they will seek to cover up or eliminate the effects of their discarding of humanity that they can no longer find any use for, usually by resorting to genocide.

The word indentured does imply that one has had a bit through the teeth installed as if a human being were nothing more than a draft animal to be led around without protest. Looking into it a little farther, one asks just how one became “indentured” to another in the first place, and it turns out that in many cases people were forced into servanthood; slavery, through becoming ensnared in debt, either personally or through the actions of another family member.

Another class of people thought that their servanthood would be temporary; involving learning a trade that would enable them to become their own master someday, escape slavery, and in turn hire other indentured servants to help carry on and expand their trade or business. Somehow, if slavery were just a temporary thing, perhaps it was endurable or worth putting up with without protest.

We would be failing to be consistent were we not to include here mentioning some religious teachings regarding slavery as sanctioned by divine authority; the claim was that in the scheme of things, one's deity was pretty much the same as one's earthly masters. People then as now are often willing to forgo temporary hardships for eventual independence, or some glory in the hereafter, even when such promises are pretty uncertain.

We note in particular the trend some have followed in recent years to try and re-educate themselves so they can get a better job, only to discover that once educated (and in debt), that there are no jobs available for them because the potential employers have outsourced and offshored those jobs to people who require far less to live on than they do. Many of these people are discovering that their academic transcripts, which prove their qualifications for a job, are not available to them unless or until they have paid off their student loans. For these people, caught in a financial Catch-22, it is as if they never attended school and received their degree or whatever other professional certification; all their time and effort and the money they now owe, went for nothing.

In the short run or the long run, it makes no difference, the elites who always had the money, usually acquired through unscrupulous or otherwise despicable trading practices involving precious metals, weapons, slaves and drugs, have had things running their way from time immemorial. These are the people who run things, decide which heroes shall be set up for the common people to look up to, decide which attitudes shall be promoted and which discouraged, decide who gets what and from whom whatever of value is taken (usually stolen by FORCE, requiring the complicity of others who are likely themselves slaves) for the continued preservation and further enrichment of themselves.

It does not matter what colour your skin is, where you come from or even how well educated you think you are. As long as there can be a distinction between slave and free, and there still is, there can be no fundamental change. Hence it is best to begin to recognize where the true divide lies; between the elites and the rest of us, regardless of our race or ethnic background, for to the elite, anyone but themselves is barely human, and being barely human, can be easily discarded.

Obviously the aware mind reels at such things, that indeed there even can be distinctions made between people who are “special” simply because they are rich and those who are not. Yet it has always been so and we contend that without a vital change in awareness among the vast majority of people, there is no reason why these distinctions will not continue and as they do so, bring about destruction and despair to more and more people everywhere as the elite attempts it's grandest scheme of all; the erection of a triplicity of world government, world economy and world religion which they intend on controlling to suit themselves.

We can begin by making a few statements that seem beyond refutation:

1. There is no fundamental difference between anyone due to their race, gender or ethnicity, or for that matter any other concocted distinction when compared with the elites. To them, we are all slaves, which means we can be bought and sold like tortillas and in some cases (where we are considered no longer useful to them), whisked away so as not to be seen by the elites (to soothe their guilty consciousness) into concentration camps, where the discarded will not be seen.

Many, perhaps most, continue to believe that these camps were only set up in Nazi Germany or that these only held persons of Jewish extraction, when in fact the real story is that these isolation camps and their genocidal purposes have existed in the United States (and Canada) as Indian reservations for the indigenous peoples, whose cultures and racial contributions to our humanity have largely become lost to us, as well as later the camps to hold Americans of Japanese descent. We are also aware that during the long terror that was the Soviet Union, many millions were held in gulags that were just as bad if not worse than Hitler's camps. China and other regimes had their equivalents.

2. The indigenous people of this world have long known what the rest of us have never recognized; that our ruling elites do not have anyone's best interests in mind but their own.

This being said, anyone who does their bidding, particularly when using FORCE, acting as either a military or police support to their power, is being fooled into believing things that are simply not true, especially trusting that they will be taken care of for their services, when in fact just the opposite is usually the case; a military or police person is still a slave to the elites and is owed nothing once discarded.

The elites do intend to discard you too, as evidence amply proves; they think you are stupid for believing them, they are glad that you have been fooled into shedding your life's blood for them so they don't have to shed theirs, they believe that dangling money and promises they never intend on keeping will be enough to secure your trust and loyalty and hope you never wake up to recognize that the poor souls you are harassing or butchering are your brothers and sisters, not those who you believe you are working for, who clearly will never regard you as one of them.

Millions around the globe are awakening to their real situation in life; that they are slaves of one sort or another to a rapacious, carnal (materialistic) and careless elite. Meanwhile there are the basic necessities of life as they have always been and then there are what E. C. Riegel describes as the drive for advancement, what makes life worth living, that one can work honestly and hope for better from one's efforts through expressions of real free trade with others.

The awakening is taking many avenues; some are waking up to recognize the futility of bigness, that neither an excessively large government or corporation can ever do anything efficiently or responsibly with regard to all of humanity or the environment. Smaller is better, but this requires the elimination of monopolies, the reinstatement of competition of technologies as well as cultures and outlooks and above all the discrediting of elite concepts such as world government, world economy (managed by them) or world religion (again managed by them to keep “the masses” believing that if they just endure a lifetime of abject slavery without outcry they will die to inherit an elitist existence in some afterlife). To those whose eyes are truly open, these are monstrous follies.

3. The elites have usually tried to cover themselves with respectability they neither deserve nor really believe in themselves; honouring the respectability of the elites is for slaves, not themselves.

Some have no doubt seen, “A Note of Appreciation from the Rich” which should serve as a basis for this point (repeated here with comment):

“Let's be honest: you'll never win the lottery.”

Gambling and the lottery are really the “opiates of the masses” used to offer hope where there really is none. What makes you think that even were you to win a lot of money that your life would really be any different? How could it be, since you would just be doing more of whatever it is you are still doing? In order to really “make something of yourself,” you must learn to produce as well as consume and compete with everyone else involved in your product speciality. Mere instant riches does nothing to change who you really are.

On the other hand, the chances are pretty good that you'll slave away at some miserable job the rest of your life. That's because you were in all likelihood born into the wrong social class. Let's face it — you're a member of the working class. Sorry!”

They are never sorry. The hubris of the elites is that they were born to rule, which were it not for their money, would be obviously false. Our message has been and is that class distinctions are for them, not for you. Therefore why honour them?

As a result, you don't have the education, upbringing, connections, manners, appearance, and good taste to ever become one of us.”

We likewise maintain that to join them, emulate them, believe as they do, etc. is mistaken; their education, upbringing, connections, manners, appearance, and good taste mean nothing to us and are seen for what they are, the trappings of narcissism held up as worth emulating when they are not. Furthermore we know that in practice (and in private) few of these people ever exhibit anything so “respectable.”

For instance, when it comes to education, most elitists would have rather cheated (and did), then actually buckle down and learn something well enough that, heaven forbid, they would be able to earn a living doing it. Upbringing, raised by servants to be some kind of critical spoiled impossible child that never has to grow up because, well let's face it, they have enough money to pay others to serve them. “Connections” are people just like them who you do not even want to know. Manners? That again is what's expected of slaves toward them, not any of their responsibility. Appearance? Though some “celebrities” (celebrated for nothing of any consequence) may seem beautiful, it is only skin deep. Good taste? These people usually have the worst taste of anyone. Who are they kidding? The doting slaves of course.

In fact, you'd probably need a book the size of the yellow pages to list all the unfair advantages we have over you. That's why we're so relieved to know that you still continue to believe all those silly fairy tales about "justice" and "equal opportunity" in America.”

… or anywhere else. As E. C. Riegel stated, political equality is meaningless without the economic freedom to create one's own money and trade goods or services with others, and of course that is what they shall never relinquish.

Of course, in a hierarchical social system like ours, there's never been much room at the top to begin with. Besides, it's already occupied by us — and we like it up here so much that we intend to keep it that way.”

Why have a hierarchical anything? What are the limitations implied by “diminishing returns to scale” and “diminishing responsibility to size”? Does anyone bother asking? The fact is that only those who live and work doing something, really know about it (and most of the elite do not know), that only those who live in a locality know what they know about that locality (the elites again do not know or care), that it makes far more sense to base larger structures on smaller units, locally created and governed, than by relying on some distant overarching authority (which doesn't deserve either the respect or trust accorded to it by those regarded as and used as slaves by the elites).

But at least there's usually someone lower in the social hierarchy you can feel superior to and kick in the teeth once in a while. Even a lowly dishwasher can easily find some poor slob further down in the pecking order to sneer and spit at. So be thankful for migrant workers, prostitutes, and homeless street people.”

Watch out! This is exactly what the elites want you to be doing; getting what little self respect you still may have from the knowledge that certainly someone else is not doing as well as you. Remember that in all cases, you will never be able to join them, and in fact you probably wouldn't like the company very much if you did. Being rich (or over powerful) does not make you wise, good, loving or smart.

Always remember that if everyone like you were economically secure and socially privileged like us, there would be no one left to fill all those boring, dangerous, low-paid jobs in our economy.”

And what would be the result should labour be valued for exactly what it is worth? Let me state that differently; what would be the chances of many things not being done if those who should be responsible decided they wouldn't guarantee the safety of their employees or pay for their healthcare? Where liabilities are waived, as with corporations, the lives of the slaves are worse off not better.

“And no one to fight our wars for us, or blindly follow orders in our totalitarian corporate institutions. And certainly no one to meekly go to their grave without having lived a full and creative life. So please, keep up the good work!”

It is our firm reiterated resolve to show the connection between soldiering and those who finance it so that fewer will willingly decide to serve them and in fact may decide to walk away from them. There were slave uprisings in the past which were savagely put down. How was this possible? The elites got those who were just above the slaves (slaves themselves nonetheless) to brutally put down these rebellions. We admonish all those who protect the elites that they are defending their own enemies against themselves; their real brothers and sisters!

You also probably don't have the same greedy, compulsive drive to possess wealth, power, and prestige that we have.”

and I often ask myself what in particular any of them have contributed to the rest of us and usually, especially with the globalist billionaires, I draw a big fat zero! There is something terribly wrong with the notion that someone can sit all day in an office tweaking numbers on properties that are merely pieces of paper and make money that comes from producing absolutely nothing of value.

And even though you may sincerely want to change the way you live, you're also afraid of the very change you desire, thus keeping you and others like you in a nervous state of limbo. So you go through life mechanically playing your assigned social role, terrified what others would think should you ever dare to 'break out of the mold.' “

Increasingly they only want continued conformity to what they are selling; a narcissistic lifestyle filled with trivial gadgets and superficial knowledge; nothing that will rock the boat of the average person's consciousness.

Naturally, we try to play you off against each other whenever it suits our purposes: high-waged workers against low-waged, unionized against non-unionized, Black against White, male against female, American workers against Japanese against Mexican against.... We continually push your wages down by invoking 'foreign competition,' 'the law of supply and demand,' 'national security,' or 'the bloated federal deficit.' We throw you on the unemployed scrap heap if you step out of line or jeopardize our profits.”

We have indicated elsewhere that because of the reliance on usury, which demands repayment of what was never created, that many of these people are literally not entitled to their economic benefits since they are stolen from everyone else. This turns things on their head; these people are the “useless eaters”, not us. It is for us to become aware of what they do to divide us so that we can make a unified stand against them.

And to give you an occasional break from the monotony of our daily economic blackmail, we allow you to participate in our stage-managed electoral shell games, better known to you ordinary folks as "elections." Happily, you haven't a clue as to what's really happening — instead, you blame 'Aliens,' 'Tree-hugging Environmentalists,' 'Niggers,' 'Jews,' 'Welfare Queens,' and countless others for your troubled situation.”

It is a growing awareness, certainly what happened to Ron Paul's campaign is an indication, that all the elections in this country are rigged and have been for a very long time. Again, we advocate starting locally, because we only know what we know locally rather than in the next town, county, state or country. When a local network of trade gets started and grows, it can then begin trading with other localities.

We need to start thinking the way our adversaries have by recognizing someone we meet from a distant place as a potential trading partner rather than as an enemy we are told to treat as an inferior or an undesirable from a foreign country. Xenophobia is a tactic the elite has often used to get people to go to war against each other so that the elites can make more money while other people die.

We're also very pleased that many of you still embrace the 'work ethic,' even though most jobs in our economy degrade the environment, undermine your physical and emotional health, and basically suck your one and only life right out of you. We obviously don't know much about work, but we're sure glad you do!”

Again, how much work would be done were that labour to be adequately valued? It would be different that's for sure. There is no reason why any of this, as described, needs to be continued.

Of course, life could be different. Society could be intelligently organized to meet the real needs of the general population.”

From the bottom up, NOT the top down.

“You and others like you could collectively fight to free yourselves from our domination. But you don't know that. In fact, you can't even imagine that another way of life is possible.”

It is time to begin this process; imagine all sorts of things that could be different and begin stepping out in those new directions.

“And that's probably the greatest, most significant achievement of our system — robbing you of your imagination, your creativity, your ability to think and act for yourself.”

Are you paying attention?

So we'd truly like to thank you from the bottom of our heartless hearts. Your loyal sacrifice makes possible our corrupt luxury; your work makes our system work. Thanks so much for 'knowing your place' — without even knowing it!”

What we can do and what we shall do will have very little if anything to do with such people and frankly much of their wicked warmongering society can jolly well go the way of the dinosaur (an animal the elite seems to like). We do not advocate violence against people who are hopelessly misguided concerning their own importance. The best policy will be a walking away from them; do not help them, do not support their claims or ideas, do not trade with them as it is your right not to. Start making your own life. The VEN, as it gets going, intends to help you, but it will require your help too.
