The Great Disparity
The fundamental underlying condition of all ruling classes regardless of culture, geography, time, political and economic systems, is that of social wealth and power disparity, namely the rich powerful few versus the unprivileged many. This difference is what We call the Great Disparity. It works the other way around as well. A society afflicted with the Great Disparity implies that it suffers from the ruling class tumor/parasite. The Great Disparity is the most fundamental property of ruling class society. Whether the state is totalitarian or a “democracy”, the existence of the rich few and the rest forces society to follow the logic of the Great Disparity, which is above all protection and promotion of its ruling class interests.
We see this in the U.S. of course. Many a lower order individual will claim that “our democracy” is genuine, that all “we” need to do is tweak it, or abolish taxes, and it will start working for the masses. The Preservation Society believes it should be readily understood by the lower orders that the presence of the Great Disparity automatically means their democracy is regulated by, and subject to, a ruling class.
The Great Disparity is a guide post. If one were looking only at wealth statistics and saw a great disparity in the numbers, the knowledgeable individual would understand a ruling class of some sort lurks, that they must be on guard. Further, one may gauge, very generally, the relative power of the ruling class by the Great Disparity. The larger the discrepancy, the more divergent the interests of the ruling class and its masses are, and the more powerful it is. The greater disparity, the bigger and more overarching the ruling class will be, though “bigger” does not necessarily mean in size but in influence and command control.
The Five Primal Divisions
The Great Disparity disrupts and alters the dynamics of relationships. In great antiquity society was a partnership society with the mother as guide and ultimate arbiter and nature as the font of all. Egalitarianism, the mother and nature — things antithetical to the ruling class imperative. Thus, when the ruling class takes over in a society, and the Great Disparity sets in, it emits the fumes of primal divide and conquer that minimize those things hostile to domination. The parasite injects its toxins into its host.
1) Division of minority from society
Once it emerges, the ruling faction no longer (or if it was an invading force, never) had a unifying relationship with its society. The ruling class minion’s interests are no longer similar to those of the individual of the mere masses. In fact, those ruling class interests are threatened by the lower orders, for it is on their backs that they enjoy their power and domination, it is only because the masses feel they must tolerate it for one reason or another. Society becomes convinced that it is natural for a small group of individuals to exploit the rest of society for its own sake, and therefore, accepts the divine separation of the ruling class from the rest as inherent in society, unaware of its anti-democratic and hostile character. Above all, the lower orders are completely unaware this cleavage between a powerful minority group from society is thoroughly avoidable.
2) Division of woman from society
Woman is oppressed for the good of the ruling class. As We’ve mentioned in previous posts, the mother/child bond was the original sacred bond. The female’s energies and ways of interacting with the world are in conflict with the patriarchal drive of the ruling class. This zeitgeist had to be suppressed if not eradicated. Women were separated from society, not to be seen. Matrilineal lines gave way to patrilineal. Women were isolated from their families and society. She was put under the control of man. She was oppressed by her male peer, which also increased his burden. Instead of a partner, he had a breeder who required food and shelter, and who was rendered helpless with his mostly unwitting complicity.
3) Division of neighbor from neighbor
The alienation of neighbor from neighbor is the alienation of the ruling class from their society. It’s also the alienation of the individual from the masses, the cultivation of the suspicion one has toward strangers and human nature. Alienation of neighbor from neighbor is also the alienation of entire factions of individuals from each other, from their common human condition, and therefore, alienation from a natural solidarity with one another.
4) Division of ego from individual
The alienation of ego from individual is the foundation of proper breeding of the individual. In Ruling class society the process of growing up is essentially the process of alienating from the individual’s own instincts, natural authority, common sense, sense of self and self-respect — that is personal authority. Alienation of ego from individual is the reduction of self-confidence and self-respect of the human psyche. Alienation encourages conviction of authority and respect being transferred to status and labels and officialdom. This is outside authority. Natural self confidence that makes inner authority is destroyed or whittled down as much as possible by establishment inputs. The self worth lost is then recaptured through “accomplishments”, peer acceptance, degrees, status, wealth, etc. Ego alienation is also ego deflation: the conditioning of guilt and a sense of “undeservingness” that shrinks and shrivels the potentially big independent ego. This is partly why ruling class society needs a tough guy cult.
5) Division of society from nature
The alienation of society from nature is the ruling class elevating itself above nature. The ruling class, not the laws of nature, becomes the final authority of all. Alienation of nature also turns the individual into a creature that is increasingly isolated and detached from their natural habitat and instincts. The natural world becomes an alien and hostile place where the individual is largely helpless without society and its ruling class. This alienation also means the elevation of man over nature. Thus, the pristine wilderness has long been referred to as wasteland, which often needs improving. Man makes himself the master of nature and thinks he does not have to respect nature’s ways. And just look where we are today.
The Divisions represent the fundamental and ever deepening social fissures that must occur for the ruling class to grow and thrive. They break down the powerful immunity of a healthy and wholesome social body. They encourage alienation among the masses. The Divisions set various parts of society against each other to weaken them for easier management, and to remove impediments that may retard ruling class growth.
The Divisions work together and reinforce one another. They never come alone. Nor is any Division more primary than the others, and none are possible without the others. They all emerge together with the appearance of the Great Disparity which comes from the establishment of the ruling class. Upon this foundation, the ruling class builds up later generations of divide and conquer that further split the divided masses, while other forms become obselete (hence exploitation of identity politics). This is where the bulk of social complexity comes from in our society. The human race is bred by the ruling class to accept it.
In a ruling class society, hardships, suspicions, greed, fine print, toil, etc., start with inhaling the toxic fumes of primal division. The Divisions are part of the apparatus of delusion and acceptance that allows the parasite ruling class to call its exploited and abused masses to its aide. The masses may even divide themselves and of their own accord to create their own divisions among them, impelled by the mistreatment of the ruling class. The “healthy” individual in a ruling class society grows up to misplace that anger as directed by the Primal Divisions that guide them.
We encourage the reader to look for the Primal Divisions around them and in their own heads. Can the masses get wise to this and seek unity?
