Humanity, like a computer system, has a backdoor, and when a virus attacks this, it not only gains access but quickly elevates its privileges and takes over.
For an insight into this backdoor, look to the Garden of Eden mythos or The Odyssey: humans seek to be gods, or at least to LARP as gods, and will destroy all that is tangible in favor of this abstract, emotional dream.
In fact, most humans seem to be on a mission to destroy anything that is not themselves. In the process, they destroy meaning, or the link between self and world, and become self-destructive out of rage at the meaninglessness of it all.
This is why we see a nasty cluster of bad personality traits in modern people. They are capricious, narcissistic, self-destructive, subversive, atheistic yet superstitious, materialistic yet always seeking new “meaningful” activities.
It turns out that individualism — which translates to “me first before all else,” including nature and gods — makes people into little voids which consume hope in order to have power.
Individualism asserts its own morality which is that all things human are better than nature and the gods, and that each individual is important, which changes human society from having a goal to wanting to protect the individual against being incorporated in the effort to achieve a goal.
Our human backdoor is this individualism. No Jews or fascists are required; stick any group of humans in a big room and ask them what they want, and they will default to social reasoning and come up with “equality.”
To the individual human, “equality” seems smart because it means that no one else can have what they do not have, and no one else can take what they have. At least, that is how they envision it, even if the reality is far different.
When individualism enters the picture, all goals become abolished. The only goal is furtherance of the repetition of individual-first and everything else burns. In other words, what should be a method of achieving a goal becomes a goal in itself.
We know lots of things like this in society. In theory, traffic tickets fund the police; in reality, they have become one of the major activities of police. In theory, government protects the people; in reality, it always grows.
In order to keep justifying individualism, we must portray the individual as a victim, not someone who suffers the consequences of his bad decisions. This means that we are constantly saturated by propaganda that takes the same form:
The archetype of these propaganda actions comes from the problem of poverty. People are poor because their labor is not worth much, therefore they produce little and receive little, no matter what economic system they serve under.
They want society to change and give them free stuff.
In reality, the only hope for them would be to reduce their costs so that their salaries would go further. However, that requires them to stop being fatalistic and spending all their money on gambling and liquor.
Their other option would be to change what they do: spend less, grow more of their own food, maybe make themselves indispensable at work. The ones who succeed already do this, but the vast majority do not.
Those of us who accept that people are as they are born tend to see most people as not particularly useful, which means that the best we can do for them is make living inexpensive and eliminate threats like crime and corruption.
That way, they can keep doing mediocre jobs, have more time off, and still be able to live a decent live without giving their souls to some 9-to-5 like a white collar worker.
However, as a group they demonize this solution because it asserts reality. They hate reality; for them, the only meaningful improvement is one which increases their sensation of power and importance.
Consequently, they want society to give them money because they know it is taken from others.
This enables them to avoid the idea that they must change, and by avoiding it, they feel that they are more powerful than reality itself.
With that development, human logical thinking inverts itself. Instead of like every other species trying to adapt to our environment and thrive within it, we are trying to change our environment so that we do not need to adapt.
In other words, we have created a human-only world of solipsism, where we believe that we are the bigger animal than reality itself, including gods and nature. No wonder most Leftist movements are atheistic and favor pollution-heavy big cities!
Individualism creates a kind of moral inversion, or morality doing the opposite of what it should, by insisting that we pay more attention to how we treat people than to the results of that treatment.
This, which is by nature egalitarian, creates a situation where what we presume to be good cannot be challenged since it is assumed to be absolutely good:
Attempting to achieve good results, instead of simply socially popular methods, requires having goals above the self and social group. That contradicts human solipsism, which wants to believe that the self is the most important.
When we recognize these as inversions, we can address them not as moral goods but as pitfalls: “That seems good at first, but it fails over time, and produces the opposite result of what is promised.”
We need only look at the results. Equality creates idiocracy. Socialism makes equal poverty. Diversity creates constant conflict. Individualism, instead of empowering the individual, makes them a generic member of a herd forced to go along with it.
Humanity finds itself on the precipice of a great awakening. Since even before The Enlightenment,™ our civilization has been gradually becoming more individualistic, losing sight of reality, nature, and divinity.
The more humans have power, however, the more they are disconnected from their world, and it is the bonding between self and world that provides meaning.
Consequently, our triumphs have become defeats and, by making these socially popular, we have stolen from ourselves the means of possible change.
This is a well of death into which we have fallen and for the first time in centuries, people are considering ways that we can escape.
