DOWN WITH ANY ELITE
Empire starts to crumble
September 6 2005
Empires are the cause of much of the misery on the world. They are allowed to grow because elites deceive the people by saying it is in their interest to be part of the Empire. There is hardly room for independent thoughts, for new ways to develop humanity. All energy is concentrated on the keeping into existence of the Empire.
Empires should never be allowed to come into being. Therefore the cause of the existence of Empires, elites who strive for personal power and wealth, should be combated. Without elites there will never be Empires. Without Empires the world has a chance to take a new course.
Empires are not good for masspeople. But masspeople do not benefit from the bringing down of an Empire. Another Empire will replace the old one and history will repeat itself. Masspeople should develop their own strategy, should fight to destroy deeper causes, should bring down any elite.
Just put a word in front of Empire and you see that Empires have been quite normal in human life. Chinese, Ottoman, Inca, Roman, Roman Catholic, Moslem, English, Spanish, French and Dutch colonial Empires … and many more smaller and bigger Empires. The masses in the centre of the Empire benefited slightly, the elites at the top had great advantages. For everyone outside the centre an Empire is horrifying.
Empires are important for elites. History is seen as a big sequence of Empires personalised in the figures of elitist persons. Masspeople are hardly important. They were only slaughtered by the millions in the endless wars to establish or defend Empires. Occasionally there was a mass uprising as the one lead by Spartacus but most history is the history of the leading class, is about the struggle between various parts of the elite.
same is now happening to the American Empire. In the centre the
elite is divided (Chirac and Schröder were against the colonial
Iraq War) and on the edges
local elites are revolting.
will remain underdogs, waiting for what an elite allows them to do.
They have hardly any influence. The rise of an Empire is decided by
small elites at the outskirts of the vast centralised territory, the
collapse by other small elites from the edge of the Empire. All past
Empires vanished and now we see signs that the American Empire is
also doomed. Maybe it will be succeeded by a Chinese Empire.
