The Saving Remnant

Remnant Allegory


      This is a call to the non-violent displacement of capitalist anarchy with a commonwealth economic and political system! It's now clear for all to see that capitalists will continue to destroy America and the world if a certain segment of enlightened persons (cognoscenti) doesn't dislodge it. This crisis is at a point where advanced persons worldwide must act to stop the capitalist devastation of citizens and civil liberties worldwide--or they'll have waited too long.

      Fascist capitalists will ceaselessly assault all people with deprivation of liberties, toxic debt, unemployment, home-loss, and loss of life in senseless wars--unless a small band of savants rises up now and creates a new political and economic pattern with which to leaven the larger society.

"If Wall Street gets away with this, it will represent an historic swindle of the American public--all sugar for the villains, lasting pain and damage for the victims."

William Greider, "Paulson Bailout Plan a Historic Swindle," Nation, 09/19/08

      It has become clear that most people are simply too ignorant, egomaniacal, and lazy to respond discerningly to their annihilation by capitalism. Intelligent persons in America and worldwide must stop allowing capitalists to make workers and taxpayers the victims of their criminal behavior. It's reprehensible that predatory lenders defrauded home-buyers, resulting in workers losing their homes while crooked CEOs bailed out with millions. Over 4,000 American soldiers have been murdered because they were duped into a war-profiteering invasion of Iraq. Enough already! We must rise up and throw off this capitalist oppression!

"The relevant question to ask then becomes -- how much deprivation do the American people have to suffer before they get their priorities straight?"

Al Martin, "The Global Economic Meltdown"

      The cognoscenti must replace barracuda capitalism--the scam that assures the top 1% receive billions while the lower 99% lose their jobs and homes and retirement security--with an economy that benefits all citizens.

      Since October, 2008, Americans hav been forced to purchase the bad debt that capitalist criminal behavior created!

      Capitalists are lying that this bailout will solve America's economic problems. No genuine justification is offered for the scam. The pretence is that the unregulated Wall Street crime spree must be allowed to continue because it's essential for the American way of life.

      Knowledgeable people should be outraged! Criminal capitalism must be stopped and a new economic system benefiting all put in its place.

    Capitalist agents--Wall Street thugs, banking criminals, government puppets--are making Americans the patsies for financial crimes. Capitalists hoodlums are lining up at the feeding trough. Capitalists are lying that this can go on indefinitely, but the nation itself is moving rapidly toward bankruptcy.

      Capitalists are conning people into believing that they're simply repeating the solutions that got us out of the 1929 Wall Street collapse. In fact, in 1929-1934, capitalists were allowed to suffer the deserved penalty for their criminal excesses--failure--not given tax-payer money as bailouts.

    While people suffer, capitalists of many kinds rake in millions. Economists and government officials will continue to lie to people about the economy, making them think everything's A-Okay. Instead of giving into useless panic, intelligent persons must RISE UP and install a new economic system.

      Predatory capitalists will try to reinstitute some of their old scams similar to the S&L swindles. Under Bush I, the savings and loan industry was allowed to go bust so that Bill Seidman, the former chairman of the Resolution Trust Corporation (where there were many allegations of fraud) could sell off most of the S&Ls at very favorable prices to well-known cabal interests, resulting in a $500 billion loss to taxpayers.

      As their crimes and corruption begin to catch up with them, capitalists are frantically trying to keep their boat afloat at all costs, destroying everything in their wake.

"These stupid peasants, who, throughout the world, hold potentates on their thrones, make statesmen illustrious, provide generals with lasting victories, all with ignorance, indifference, or half-witted hatred, moving the world with the strength of their arms, and getting their heads knocked together in the name of God, the king, or the stock exchange--immortal, dreaming, hopeless asses, who surrender their reason to the care of a shining puppet, and persuade some toy to carry their lives in his purse."

Stephen Crane, On the Peasantry

Are American Workers Too Stupid To Survive?

      When we see workers doing nothing to stop criminal capitalists from:

  • Killing over 4,000 of them in a war-profiteering invasion and occupation of Iraq

  • Pushing off their toxic debts onto them

  • Swindling them with criminal subprime mortgages

  • Reading their email and regular mail and listening to their phone conversations

  • Taking their jobs oversees to slave-labor havens such as China

  • Destroying their minds by devastating American education and brainwashing them

   With all these attacks against American citizens, the question becomes: Are Most American Workers Too Stupid To Survive?

      In 1780, English thinker Samuel Johnson said:
"No government power can be abused long. Mankind will not bear it. There is a remedy in human nature against tyranny, that will keep us safe under every form of government."

      That may have been somewhat true in Samuel Johnson's time, but since the middle of the twentieth century, most Americans have allowed themselves to become so besotted with ignorance and egomania that it's now a real question whether or not they will survive the onslaughts of their capitalist destroyers.

      Intelligent people recognize that average workers worldwide are too intellectually, spiritually, and ethically debased to rise up against their capitalist enemies.

      Workers have allowed themselves to become possessed by the capitalist ideology, its militaristic imperialism and its injustice and corruption.

    Most workers want to follow someone they consider their leader and would be terrified if they were free from mental and social restraint.

      Part of the difficulty with workers is that they have very few genuine progressive role models to follow in the present era. In fact, most of those persons who might seem to be role models possess negative characteristics that misinform and mis-inspire laboring class people.

      For example, many workers are taken in by a magazine such as The Nation that pretends to be authentically "liberal" or "progressive." If you follow The Nation, you'll discover that it backs the Democratic party and the Obama puppet regime and hasn't the courage to question such false-flag criminal operations as 9/11.

      Seeming "liberal" journalists such as Paul Krugman have a few semi-progressive views on selected issues, but essentially fall into line with the mainstrean ideology. Far-out critics of the status-quo such as Alex Jones and David Ickes give "progressives" a very bad name. Ickes spouts his fantasies about "the reptilian bloodline that rules the world" and Alex Jones presents misinformation on his Website such as Social Security being a ponzi scheme and the need for people to secede from the United States.

The Cognoscenti's Long-Range Strategy

      In each era, small groups of advanced thinkers have pushed humankind forward, revealing what persons are capable of, while battling the forces of degradation, ignorance, and indifference. But the ongoing struggle against oppression is ultimately insufficient--as one form of tyranny replaces another in historic succession. Humans must at last attain the understanding and capability that will enable them to create a higher social order.

     The only viable way for this to occur is for an advanced group to constitute itself as a "saving remnant" that will leaven the larger culture with its higher knowledge and power, creating a commonwealth.

"The genuine practitioners of the love of and the search for wisdom will be but a small remnant. . . Those who belong to this small class have tasted how sweet and blessed a possession philosophy is."
Plato, The Commonwealth, VI

Hermes, Rumi, Francis of Assisi, Diotima, Boethius, Hypatia, Martin Luther King, Betty White, Stewart Edward White, Shakespeare, Socrates, Plato, Jesus, Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt

      Building on the immortal wisdom of savants such as those depicted above, a small group of knowledgeable persons is currently working to institute cooperative commonwealth communities. Their long-range strategy is to create successful small cooperative communities and gradually leaven the larger society, helping to raise the intellectual and spiritual level of people worldwide. As persons gain intellectual acuity, they can be included in cooperative communities which the cognoscenti create, spreading these new political-economic configurations over the entire culture.

"The idea of an integrated economic system co-ordinating the efforts of all for the common welfare, which is the basis of the modern state, is as old as philosophy. As a theory it dates back to Plato at least, and nobody knows how much further, for it is a conception of the most natural and obvious order. Not, however, until popular government had been made possible by the diffusion of intelligence was the world ripe for the realization of such a form of society. Until that time the idea, like the soul waiting for a fit incarnation, must remain without social embodiment. Selfish rulers thought of the masses only as instruments for their own aggrandizement, and if they had interested themselves in a more exact organization of industry it would only have been with a view of making that organization the means of a more complete tyranny. Not till the masses themselves became competent to rule was a serious agitation possible or desirable for an economic organization on a co-operative basis."
