PostSubject: Edmund Burke: On defeating evil   Thu 23 Feb 2012, 10:08 am

"Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel, and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each otherís principles, nor experienced in each otherís talents, nor at all practised in their mutual habitudes and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavours, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."

- Edmund Burke, (1729-1797), "Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents"

Hence, the reason why:

- communication between men is no longer directly between men, but disinetermediated by controlled tech
- society is being ponerized by psychopaths, so no one trusts anyone
- faith in higher powers (non-man based powers) is being thwarted, so that: (i) men will have nothing to turn to other than that produced by other men; (ii) there will be less that binds men to each other
- minds are being bent into believing that that which is bad for society is now necessary, hindering the signaling of alarms
- Principles are being thwarted for a society with no rules, no moral or ethics

Yeah, they have woven an all-encompassing spider web of evil, and with the greatest skill. Nothing accidental about it, right C1? Sad
