Why Has The Thinking Class Of America Abandoned Thinking?

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com,

The abiding enigma of this tormented era remains: why has the thinking class of America abandoned thinking?

The answer is: it’s the reaction to their own failure.

Failure to do what? To produce the utopia that Gnostic liberalism promised - a perfect world based on altering human nature.

The result is an essentially religious hysteria, like the witch frenzies of Medieval Europe that were sometimes provoked by ergot poisoning — a fungus with toxic psychotropic properties that grew on the harvested rye, inducing frightful hallucinations in the villagers, who then lashed out at their perceived supernatural antagonists. Trump in our time is the ergot on the bread of our politics. And Russia is the witch.

Like other operations of the human mind, this collective fugue-state has a big subconscious module in it: the deep, poorly articulated fear that the single notion of Progress behind progressive politics in the industrial era has reached a dead end. The world is clearly not becoming a better place, but rather reeling into disorder and ecological crisis, despite all the rational programs and politics of modern democracy, and political failure is everywhere.

The “peace dividend” promised by the end of the cold war has degenerated into endless war. The miraculous promises of medicine have been hijacked by “health care” racketeering now institutionalized under ObamaCare. The Civil Rights campaign begun in the 1950s with the most earnest, hopeful intentions (and generous policies) has produced off-the-charts black crime rates, educational defeat, ruined cities, and epic rancor. The middle class has been left economically shipwrecked by the promises of globalism. The pledge of a happy retirement dissolves as the pension funds roll over and die. And the supposed paragon of enlightened American governance morphs into a sinister and corrupt Deep State of oligarchical corruption.

In the background of all this are even more disturbing quandaries and prospects: population overshoot, mass migration from regions that can’t support these numbers of people, extinctions of animal species, the death of the oceans, climate instability. The practical problems of economy approach an event horizon of energy scarcity, runaway debt from trying to mitigate it, and eventual collapse of our day-to-day hyper-complex economic arrangements. These things are so scary that the thinking classes - except for a minority of nerdy scientists - can’t even bear to think about them.

Instead, we have the Gnostic drive to alter human nature, which has terminated in the preoccupation with abolishing sexual identity - the fantasy that we will (and ought to) throw off the shackles of biology and rise into a sort of “trans-human” nirvana. Just behold the amount of “ink” that The New York Times has spilled reporting on the triumphs of transexualism in the past year.

It’s not surprising that some of the worst thinking, the most obviously tortured theological hallucinations, emanate these days from the universities — the places where young, developing intellects are supposed to be molded. Instead of free inquiry, they now offer intellectual martial law, chained to sets of ersatz metaphysics. “Victim” ideas run wild because malign supernatural powers are in play against the faculty hierophants on the elite campuses, charged with interpreting the sacred mysteries and esoteric principles of “post-structural” (reality-optional) thought. The quandaries of “minority” America have resolved in the simple superstitious idea that demonic forces of “white male privilege” and ubiquitous, implacable misogynistic racism are entirely responsible for the woes and sorrows of the world, and the failure of progress in particular.

The failures of US-sponsored economic globalism now focus on the ur-demon (the Satan!) called Russia. Apocalyptic battle with the greatest monster of the imagination is the ultimate struggle in outbreaks of religious frenzy, and America has a ripe history of engaging with the Devil. It’s bad enough when it breaks out in a tiny colonial settlement like Salem, Massachusetts, in the 1600s. There only a few dozen people were persecuted and destroyed. It’s another matter on the global stage today when you engage a perceived “Satan” like Russia, which truly can rain holy Hell back on you if you push your hallucinated animus too far.

My wife said I was thinking too much - so I stopped.

Then I registered as a Democrat to vote.

What could go wrong ?

I reject the author's premise. the 'thinking class' *wasn't* trying to get us all a shiny-clean Utopia ... that's just what they *said* to sell the real plan: neofeudalism. (with them at the top of the heap, of course)

What exactly makes a "thinking class"

 

Someone that goes along with the governmental narrative?

 

Or someone that thinks outside the box and gets called a fuckin racist 24/7/365...

 

No, the so called "thinking class" is there, they just got blundgeoned to death by 8 years of non-stop name calling...

Very well said. There is this assumption that there was a "thinking" class. They were just able to think up and sell bullshit which was then accepted by a "if it's on TV it must be real" public. Now, not only do they not look like the thinking class, their "thinking" has been exposed for the bullsit it is.

There are very few exceptions to this but for the most part, bullshitters to max.

My new model-hot girlfriend is Russian. I enjoy colluding with her very much! I traded-in my American, feminist, liberal, psychotic, irrational, mind-fucking ex. for her. I'm not looking back. As a blue collar, white, middle class, heterosexual male, I could take being called every "ist" in the book, and getting emotionally punched in the nuts for so long. My new 30 year old gorgeous blonde has a degree, and thinks I'm the shit. What more could I ask for? I think we'll do some Stoli shots now, and jump in the hot tub.

This sounds a bit too much like an internet fantasy.

I have a friend who married a Russian woman, and it worked out very well.  He has lots of contacts over there for matrimonial purposes for his friends.  Nonetheless, what you've described is unrealistic.

What exactly makes a "thinking class"

Hard to find the answer, like asking how was the universe formed. It was many eons ago they became extinct. Slowly morphed into useless  millennials that got scholarships in school for remembering to breath.

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.” – H.L. Mencken

Gov't is making great progress in that area. Kids go to school and come out knowing less than they did before they started, and turned into debt slaves.

Partially correct, many of us are waiting for the event that even the nonthinking cannot ignore. Only then can the rebuilding begin. The terror of 9/11 was not nearly enough, my premise, and actually my hope was that it would happen about 6 more times, each about a month apart. That may have gotten enough heads out of the sand, clouds and asses to do a proper and complete restart.

It could also be called Communism. Back in the early days of Communism in the USA it was the intellectuals who embraced it because everyone was equal. Since these were the so called intellectual elite they believed they were not equal but superior and would lead the rest of us while living off the fruits of the "equals" labor. We are at that point again or it's never changed just gone below the radar. Thus we get indoctrination and intellectual bullshit, where utopian ideas like open borders trump reality, in the education system. While the government seeks to rule the planet by destroying countries the "thinking class" is seeking to rule by taking over our minds. So called "brains" over brawn. It's all about power and control and you can bet it's still a work in progress and the "superior" people are not about to give up.

Many of the comments confuse "thinking people" with the merchant class that seeks suck every dollar out of your pocket by convincing you to buy things. At least the merchants give you something in return. For the "thinking people" it's all about control over you and to do their bidding. Thus their fixation on things like the fake man made climate change meme to convince people to do things that go against their best interest.

The representatives of both parties are

PAID NOT TO THINK !

it really is that simple.

Radical Marijuana's picture

Those whose work has the most significant effects, and who are most PAID NOT TO THINK, are the people working at the Federal Reserve Board. Since the representatives of both dominate political parties long ago became political puppets effectively controlled by all aspects of the funding of the political processes, the vast majority of successful politicians are PAID NOT TO THINK. Since the majority of people act like muppets, who vote for political puppets, the results are a privatized public "money" system, whereby the powers of public governments enforce frauds by private banks, and the big corporations that have grown up around those big banks. Therefore, the most important, albeit also most paradoxical, people who are PAID NOT TO THINK are those working for the Federal Reserve Board.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-14/how-dumb-fed

How Dumb Is The Fed?

The common theme of most of the previous comments under that article was that the Federal Reserve Board is an expression of the ways that human history has tended to maximize maliciousness. The only connections between the laws of man and the laws of nature are the abilities to back up lies with violence, which became integrated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, such as expressed by the ways that the Government of the USA enforces frauds by the Federal Reserve Board. One will generally NOT see articles presenting that view because of the ways that human history has selected for the only publicly significant "opposition" to be controlled. The deep degree to which the ways that people think are controlled result in public presentations of more radical truths becoming too unpopular to be approved of by enough of an audience to support the production of those presentations.

Socially successful people tend to be "PAID NOT TO THINK." The great paradox of human intelligence was that ended up primarily being applied by the ruling classes to keep those ruled over ignorant and afraid. Everyone who proportionately benefited from those sociopolitical systems necessarily did so to the degree to which they were able to adapt to living inside systems based on enforcing frauds in ways which depended upon them operating as the best available professional hypocrites inside those systems, which sets of social facts they necessarily ignored and were as willfully blind as possible towards.

The essential dilemmas of human history have been civilization was dominated by its murder systems, which were selected to become most successful by becoming as deceitful and treacherous as possible. Most importantly, since the murder systems backed up the money systems, the existing money systems, based on public governments enforcing frauds by private banks, tended towards maximizing maliciousness. Indeed, the Federal Reserve Board is the single biggest institution which manifests the ways that their enforced frauds are becoming exponentially more fraudulent, while the activities of the Federal Reserve Board are integrated into globalized systems based on being able to enforce frauds, which are supervised by institutions such as the Bank of International Settlements.

The Federal Reserve Board MAXIMIZES MALICIOUSNESS,

because MONEY IS MEASUREMENT BACKED BY MURDER.

Natural selection pressures drove the development of artificial selection systems to become most socially successful by becoming as dishonest as possible, while prodigious progress in better understand the laws of nature have resulted in human laws becoming about exponentially more dishonest. However, since almost everyone, for generation after generation, lives inside sociopolitical systems based on being able to enforce frauds, despite those becoming exponentially more dishonest, there is practically nobody who is socially successful in any ways which operate outside of that overall frame of reference. Hence, the articles republished on Zero Hedge tend to almost always grossly understate the seriousness of the situation that Globalized Neolithic Civilization is based upon the excessively successful applications of the methods or organized crime through the political processes, which are manifesting more and more as runaway criminal insanities.

Most of the articles republished on Zero Hedge tend to implicitly rely upon Hanlon's Razor, which mistakenly presumes that institutions like the Federal Reserve Board operate in ways which express apparent incompetent stupidity, rather than are the superficial expressions of deeper levels of maliciousness. While Hanlon's Razor is a valid application of the generally valid idea expressed by Occam's Razor, the particular applications of those notions should not be done in ways which deliberately ignore the abundance of evidence which supports the existence of mechanisms based on maximizing maliciousness.

Why Has The Thinking Class Of America Abandoned Thinking?

It is pretty well universal for those who ask the question "why" to tend to NOT provide better answers, because they are NOT able and willing to go through sufficient series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in order to do answer adequately. Indeed, with quite appropriate irony, most of those who call for "paradigm shifts" do not sufficiently do so. After all, the more radical truths one presents, the more of the potential audience one loses. People necessarily think and communicate through taking for granted the dominate natural languages and philosophy of science, which have built into their structure bullshit-based frames of reference, which make better thinking extremely difficult, as well as make better public communicating be politically impossible for all practical purposes.

The title of the article I linked above reflects the ways in which that author indulges in superficially correct analysis of the Federal Reserve Board, which may well be the only levels which are required in order to adapt to continuing to live inside those entrenched systems based upon being able to enforce frauds, despite that those are becoming exponentially more fraudulent. Indeed, it is a relatively typical pattern on Zero Hedge for many of the comments to be better than the original articles, because the original articles rarely engage in deeper levels of analysis regarding the development of the combined money/murder systems. The standard presentations are asking about accumulating apparent anomalies. While the more mainstream news media attempt to continue to ignore those anomalies, the relatively popular alternative news does NOT go through more profound paradigm shifts, since doing so would lose most of its readership or viewers.

Politics both IS, as well as should be, applied human ecology. However, the ways that actually developed were through death control systems whose most extreme forms were murder systems, which murder systems backed up the money systems. Hence, human history was driven to develop the most deceitful murder systems, backing up the most fraudulent money systems, within which context institutions like the Federal Reserve Board demonstrate the trends towards maximizing maliciousness. There is almost nothing but the central core of triumphant organized crime, namely banker dominated governments, surrounded  by layers of controlled "opposition" groups which stay within the same frames of reference. Since any genuine opposition would have to propose and promote alternative murder systems to back up alternative money systems, there is practically NO such genuine opposition. Hence, there are practically NO alternative articles which have a publicly significant presentation that admit and address the ways in which there necessarily be some death control systems, in order to back up the debt control systems. Rather, thousands of years of the history of militarism, which was basis for existing monetary policies, have maximized the maliciousness of the combined money/murder systems.

David Graeber:

On Bureaucratic Technologies & the Future as Dream-Time

Some interesting scholarship & speculations, that I comment on:

"Post-modernism"  was originally advanced as the FAILURES
of the future to realize its various impossible ideals.

E.g.:

Alvin Toffler was a reactionary revolutionary futurologist.

The most important things which HAVE
continued exponential growth were the
exponential growth of FRAUDULENCE.

Around the 20:45 mark of that video is mentioned

George Gilder

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Gilder

who came up with "divine theory of money"
that creating "money" out of nothing as debt/credit
was analogous to the creativity of God making the universe.

("In the 2009 book The Israel Test, Gilder reveals Israel as a leader of human civilization, technological progress, and scientific advance. Tiny Israel stands behind only the United States in its contributions to the hi-tech economy. Israel has become the world's paramount example of the blessings of freedom.")

FALSE FLAGS' FUTUROLOGY?

Of course, continuing exponential growth of frauds
was accompanied with matching threats from force.

In similar ways that the events on 9/11/2001
were spectacular symbols of enforcing frauds,
the allegations regarding the Apollo missions,
physically "landing" some men on the moon,
could have been profound propaganda ???

Various radical truths generate possible Litmus Tests.

The alleged significance of the alleged moon landings
is repeated in the video above several times, such as,
at about the 25 minute mark, regarding some overall
geopolitical context surrounding the alleged landings.

There are nested frames of reference ...
which are profoundly wrong paradigms!

Globalized Neolithic Civilization became
based on enforcing frauds, while that
was publicly presented as "creative,"

regarding making the public "money" out of nothing as debts,
as somehow doing "God's Work," or as being Good Creativity!

"If history shows anything, it is that there’s no better way to justify relations founded on violence, to make such relations seem moral, than by reframing them in the language of debt — above all, because it immediately makes it seem that it’s the victim who’s doing something wrong."

— David Graerber

"Almost everyone was taught that money was invented to replace the messy business of barter. … But ... anthropologist David Graeber, and other experts on the history of money, say that this is a myth. Instead, they say that money was invented to finance war, and to keep score while armies went about pillaging and looting."

Civilization was always based upon being able to back up lies with violence. The almost exponential progress in physical science enabled the social pyramid systems of Neolithic Civilization to grow at about an exponential rate. Within the life time of those still alive today, the previous systems of paper money frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, became globalized electronic money frauds, backed by the threat of force from atomic bombs, whereby ENFORCING FRAUDS BECAME EXPONENTIALLY MORE FRAUDULENT.

In that context, the Federal Reserve Board is maximizing maliciousness, as it nevertheless is publicly able to continue to present doing so as being productively creative, although it is actually doing nothing more than legalized bookkeeping tricks. Mainstream economists are intellectual mercenaries, who make their living INSIDE systems where economics is actually a special case of warfare. Since successful warfare was based upon backing up deceits with destruction, successful finance became based upon enforcing frauds. Inside that context, the mainstream economists make predictions which are based upon continuing to support exponentially increasing fraudulence. Of course, they do NOT admit and address that fundamental fraudulence, but rather were selected to become the best available professional hypocrites who could spout bullshit about that.

"What Went Wrong?"

Sociopolitical systems based upon making "money" out of nothing as debts, which then can drive those debts into the positive feedback loops of compound interest, are actually the exponential growth of the enforcement of frauds, whereby the death controls backed up the debt controls. Debt slavery generated numbers which became debt insanities. Runaway debt insanities will provoke runaway death insanities. The only theoretically possible realistic resolutions of those real problems might be to catalyze those eruptions of death insanities towards better death control systems, which depended upon better integrated human, industrial and natural ecologies, enabled by enough people understanding themselves as entropic pumps of environmental energy flows. HOWEVER, at the present time, the vast majority of people deliberately ignore and/or misunderstand almost everything in the most absurdly backward ways possible.

"Money" created out of nothing as debts demands that most people deliberately ignore the principle of the conservation of energy, as well as misunderstand the concept of entropy. The "magical mathematics" achieved through legalized bookkeeping tricks have become symbolic robberies which so extremely benefit those who are getting away with doing so that there is nobody else who can compete with them ... Rather, the vicious spirals of the funding of politics resulting in enforced frauds continue to become exponentially more fraudulent, while that continues to be politically impossible to cope with ... other than, eventually, through the longer term consequences of that exponentially increasing fraudulence. Meanwhile, in each short to medium term increment, the professional hypocrites operating those symbolic robberies continue to become more socially successful, despite the overall consequences being that Civilization as whole becomes more psychotic!

THAT IS BARELY POSSIBLE TO EXAGGERATE.

What to do when you learn that everything is a lie.

 

Professional "thinkers" are "PAID NOT TO THINK."

They would suffer from extreme cognitive dissonance IF they started to think more deeply about the ways that Civilization is based on being able to enforce frauds, while prodigious progress in physical science has enabled those enforced frauds to become exponentially more fraudulent. Their personal careers WITHIN the established systems depended upon them developing themselves to become the best professional liars and immaculate hypocrites that they could become, since, by becoming better professional hypocrites, they were able to benefit more from living inside sociopolitical systems based upon the methods of organized crime, wherein governments became the biggest forms of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters, the banksters, while it was one of the necessary corollaries of Civilization operating according to the methods of organized crime that those doing so were most able to bullshit about themselves doing so. Professional "thinkers" can NOT remain socially successful by genuine thinking.

The vast majority of people quite completely take for granted thinking about time and space in old-fashioned ways which have been proven to be WRONG by mathematical physics, such as exemplified by the special theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. Pretty well everything that everyone "thinks" has become as absurdly backwards as humanly possible, after thousands of years of backing up bigger lies with more violence. At the same time, atomic and electronic energy have been harnessed inside sociopolitical systems always based upon enforcing frauds, in ways which enabled the previous paper money frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, to develop as globalized, exponentially increasing, fraudulence. AROUND & AROUND, AGAIN & AGAIN, systems based on enforcing frauds actually operated as symbolic robberies. Those who were the best available hypocrites were the best at taking advantage of those systems of symbolic robberies, which required that they deliberately not publicly admit and address the issues regarding themselves operating inside enforced frauds, but rather, to develop more and more elaborate bullshit to justify and rationalize exponentially increasing fraudulence as somehow NOT being fraudulent.  

Collectively, Civilization is becoming increasingly psychotic! However, inside that overall context, the best available professional hypocrites have every short to medium term increment incentive to continue to NOT "think" in any more critical ways, despite the more and more painfully obvious ways that the established enforced frauds are overall becoming exponentially more fraudulent. Most of those people would end up being fired IF they stopped being as deliberately ignorant and willfully blind as they are now ... The original dilemmas due to the most socially successful murder systems being the most deceitful and treacherous have been developing for thousands of years, at about an exponential rate. The social successfulness of those murder systems, and everything else those backed up, such as the money systems, depend upon the people operating those systems do NOT publicly admit and address those facts, but rather, bullshit as must as humanly possible about those facts.

Systems based on ENFORCING FRAUDS must be operated by professional hypocrites, even though their successfulness in doing so results in exponentially increasing fraudulence, since fundamentally fraudulent financial account systems dominate everything that Civilization does, and therefore, Civilization, as whole, collectively behaves in more and more self-destructive ways, since that Civilization is dominated by the biggest and best organized gangsters, including that Civilization's professional "thinkers" are dominated by those with the greatest skills as professional liars and immaculate hypocrites.

That warfare is the oldest and best developed forms of social science and engineering, which depended upon becoming as deceitful and treacherous as possible, as organized crime expressed on larger and larger scales, has had many sublimely paradoxical consequences, manifesting in the forms of consistent contradictions, or sets of corollaries to the ways that Civilization necessarily operates according to the methods of organized crime, which were that those doing so became proportionately the best at presenting the bullshit that they were NOT forms of organized crime.

For professional "thinkers" to stop being "PAID NOT TO THINK," tends to be politically impossible, for an abundance of reasons which make sense, given that natural selection pressures have driven the development of artificial selection systems to become as dishonest as possible, and indeed to become about exponentially more dishonest. The underlying causes for those systems based on enforced frauds, operated by professional hypocrites, continue to be the same now as the original reasons for how and why applications of the methods of organized crime made and maintained Globalized Neolithic Civilization.

The vast majority of people continue to take for granted "thinking," and "communicating," by relying upon the DUALITIES of false fundamental dichotomies, and the related impossible ideals. Everyone who lives as some sort of professional hypocrite, which is pretty well all of the professional "thinkers," have adapted to living inside the established systems, and would tend to personally suffer IF they engaged in any more genuinely critical thinking about anything, including their own lives being actually based on enforcing frauds, delivering to them the benefits of symbolic robberies.

There is only one political system: organized crime. While governments are the biggest forms of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters, those central social facts are also the reasons for "why" those people are also the best available professional hypocrites, most able to bury those facts under bullshit. Pretty well all of the "alternatives" are merely alternative bullshit, because of the long history whereby murder systems would not work as well by being honest about themselves. Genuinely better alternatives are as politically impossible as more honest murder systems to back up more honest money systems.

Firstly, most "thinkers" do NOT admit that there must necessarily be some death control systems.

Secondly, most "thinkers" do NOT address that the existing death controls are extremely deceitful.

And, thirdly, there are NO good grounds to expect that to get any better in the foreseeable future ...
