How to Defeat Power-Directed Systems of Thought

It is not the truth of Marxism that explains the willingness of intellectuals to believe it, but the power that it confers on intellectuals, in their attempts to control the world. And since, as Swift says, it is futile to reason someone out of a thing that he was not reasoned into, we can conclude that Marxism owes its remarkable power to survive every criticism to the fact that it is not a truth-directed, but a power-directed system of thought. ~”A Political Philosophy: Arguments for Conservatism” by Roger Scruton, 2006

Progressivism uses all kinds of words like “dialogue”, “liberty”, “freedom”, and “rights”, while doing the exact opposite, therefore the heart and soul, the meaning of these terms, is not rooted in truth (Logos) when they speak them, but rather rooted in power, which confuses those of us who approach such terms from a place of truth. For instance, consider what Roger Baldwin stated about how to trick regular Americans into communism by stating that everything they’re doing are for patriotism, the Constitution, and in the spirit of America’s founding fathers.

We want to, also, look like patriots in everything we do. We want to get a good lot of flags, talk a good deal about the Constitution and what our forefathers wanted to make out of this country and to show that we are the fellows that really stand up for the spirit of our institutions. ~Roger Baldwin, founder of the ACLU

I am for Socialism, disarmament and, ultimately for abolishing the State itself… I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control of those who produce wealth. COMMUNISM IS THE GOAL. ~Roger Baldwin, 1938, founder of the ACLU

When we lack a deeper understanding of their underlying motivations, where they utilize these terms in a manner that attempts to give them power over us and others, the most we can do when we engage in these ill-intentioned “dialogues” is to resist their goals and slow them down, which now allows them to employ “political gradualism / incrementalism”, which makes their agenda even more sustainable and effective in the long term.

Incrementalism is a method of working by adding to a project using many small incremental changes instead of a few (extensively planned) large jumps. Logical incrementalism implies that the steps in the process are sensible. Logical incrementalism focuses on “the Power-Behavioral Approach to planning rather than to the Formal Systems Planning Approach”. In public policy, incrementalism is the method of change by which many small policy changes are enacted over time in order to create a larger broad based policy change. ~Wikipedia

Q: How can political gradualism be employed in a predatory manner to create a more sustainable tyrannical government system?

1. Systematic Incremental Change: A tyrannical government might use gradualism as a tool to incrementally erode democratic institutions and processes without sudden, noticeable changes that would provoke immediate public resistance or international condemnation. For instance, over time, it could systematically reduce funding for opposition media outlets and civil society organizations that are critical of the regime until these entities no longer have sufficient resources to operate effectively.

2. Control Over Legal Frameworks: By gradually changing laws through subtle adjustments in interpretation rather than explicit reformulations, a government can weaken democratic safeguards like freedom of speech, assembly, and political rights without making overtly repressive moves that would trigger international sanctions or widespread opposition domestically.

3. Selective Enforcement: The government might use gradualism to selectively enforce regulations against its opponents while applying leniency towards loyal supporters. For example, stringent environmental laws could be targeted at private enterprises that are considered political enemies of the regime while being laxly enforced on businesses aligned with the government’s interests.

4. Educational Control: Over time, educational institutions can gradually be co-opted by incorporating ideologies sympathetic to the regime into curriculums or academic research funding practices, ensuring a pipeline of compliant future leaders and reducing dissenting voices from emerging.

5. Economic Manipulation: A gradualist tyrannical government could subtly manipulate economic policies—like subsidies for state-owned enterprises, regulations that favor certain industries over others, or the monopolization of key sectors—to consolidate control over the economy and create a self-sustaining elite loyal to the regime.

6. Media Control: By using gradualism in media policy-making, such as by acquiring controlling shares in major news organizations, implementing content guidelines that limit dissenting voices without outright censorship laws, or subtly influencing public discourse through state-controlled media outlets, the government can shape public opinion and perceptions while avoiding direct accusations of suppression.

Another thing that occurs when they direct the narrative via their calls for discourse and local and world disasters that give us ever more drama to discuss, is that they keep our focus on what they want to create, which supports them in the creation process. Each of these faux “calls for dialogue” and tragic world events keeps us creating their intentions for them, which is utilizing the universal psychological maxim “whatever one focuses on they create”, which in commercial and karmic law are called “offers”. They flood us with negative offers, and if we do not know how to negotiate in the proper way, we are confused, tired, overwhelmed, and in resistance, yet still focusing on them and the lack of resources we seemingly have to keep up with it all. We are encouraged to enter into a limited spectrum of debate and dialogue though, and participating in this narrow spectrum reinforces their agenda.

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate. ~Noam Chomsky

Q: Please elaborate on the psychological maxim “whatever one focuses on they create”?

The psychological maxim “whatever one focuses on they create” refers to the idea that our thoughts and emotions have a significant influence on our reality. This principle is often associated with the concept of the “law of attraction,” which suggests that positive or negative thoughts and emotions can attract corresponding experiences and circumstances into our lives.

From a psychological standpoint, this maxim can be understood in terms of cognitive processes such as attention, perception, and memory. When we pay attention to specific aspects of our environment, we tend to notice and remember those aspects more readily, which can shape our perceptions and beliefs about the world. This, in turn, can influence our behavior and the actions we take, ultimately creating the reality we experience.For example, if someone constantly focuses on negative thoughts and emotions, they are more likely to perceive their environment as negative and hostile, leading to a self-fulfilling prophecy of negativity. Conversely, if someone focuses on positive thoughts and emotions, they are more likely to perceive their environment as positive and supportive, leading to a self-affirming cycle of positivity.

It is essential to note that this maxim does not imply that we can magically manifest our desires through mere thought alone. Instead, it emphasizes the importance of mental and emotional focus in shaping our experiences and the actions we take to create our reality.

However, a quote attributed to Socrates (and I do not believe he actually said it, but whoever said it, it does happen to be true) provides us with a possible solution:

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. ~Attributed to Socrates

Also, Buckminster Fuller definitely said the following:

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ~Buckminster Fuller

In order to create a satisfying, meaningful, and abundant life, we too need to be making offers of our own through our positive focus, but not necessarily on the externalized world stage, but on the microcosmic stage of our own lives, and that of our families and friends. We need to also intentionally create a rich internal (psychologically and spiritually) world, family life, and small community, which will eventually affect the external world we reside in. While it is important that we are aware of their attempts to gain power over us in these nefarious and ill-intentioned ways, we do not need to continually focus on them, resist them, or give them extra attention in any meaningful way—at least not yet.


Guilt and shame are the two main fishing hooks that Marxists, socialists, progressives, narcissists, psychopaths, and sycophants, use to catch us in their spider webs to gain power over us, which cause us to act and create in their behalf, either through embracing their policies and dogmas via moral do-gooding, or resisting their policies and dogmas via conservatism, which is merely conserving the old and not creating anything new via the creative process of making our own offers. Predatory parasites get us to feel guilty through reversing the burden of proof on us via their accusations, and this moves us into either sympathy when we align our will with theirs, or defensiveness and resistance when as we attempt to prove our innocence—due to the nature of weaponized dialectics, both outcomes are acceptable to them.

In speaking of reversing the burden of proof to gain power over others in his book “Rules for Radicals”, Saul Alinsky stated:

Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage. ~Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

You don’t communicate with anyone purely on the rational facts or ethics of an issue […] It is only when the other party is concerned or feels threatened that he will listen. ~Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. ~Saul Alinsky, “Rules for Radicals”

Q: What is “guilt manipulation”?

Guilt manipulation is a psychological tactic where someone tries to control or influence another person’s actions or emotions by making them feel guilty. This can be done by emphasizing the consequences of not doing something, implying that their actions or inactions have caused harm, or making them believe they are responsible for someone else’s happiness or well-being. ~Gab Arya AI Chatbot

As Roger Scruton mentioned in the opening quote, it’s ALL a power play, as their calls for dialogue, their accusations that we’re unreasonable and hurting people, and their facade of being reasonable have NOTHING to do with discovering the truth, upholding objective morality, and of doing what’s actually in everyone’s best interests, since  it is solely a means to an end for the fisherman or spider to catch its dinner. The thrill of the hunt is intoxicating for them, and your subservience to their will is their prize; they do not want to negotiate with you to find a win/win solution, no, they want you to fully conform to them in Every. Single. Way. They are win/lose.

We cannot control the macrocosmic reality we reside in, because it is just too big and overwhelming, however, as stated before, we can influence it by mastering these patterns in our personal microcosmic reality, and we do this by invoking the Hermetic principle of correspondence, and pulling the macrocosmic dramatic patterns we see playing out down into our microcosmic patterns, and resolving them there.

If you imagine someone who is brave enough to withdraw all his projections, then you get an individual who is conscious of a pretty thick shadow. Such a man has saddled himself with new problems and conflicts. He has become a serious problem to himself, as he is now unable to say that they do this or that, they are wrong, and they must be fought against… Such a man knows that whatever is wrong in the world is in himself, and if he only learns to deal with his own shadow he has done something real for the world. He has succeeded in shouldering at least an infinitesimal part of the gigantic, unsolved social problems of our day.

~Carl Jung, “Psychology and Religion” (1938). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East. P.140

At a certain point, all of our inner work and processing with Logos needs to manifest into wise external actions, as we need to reclaim our rights, reclaim our families, and reclaim our community in a grounded manner, and so we will need to face challenges in our personal lives, via microcosmic power dramas that mirrors the power dramas in society, to demonstrate and ground our new state of inner strength and power. We will meet people, deal with family members or ex-partners, and be placed in difficult situations that first ensure that we process and work through our shadows, but ultimately lead to us standing up to and beating them at their own nefarious finite power game. The goal isn’t simply to defeat them though, it is to flex our muscles to such an extent that everyone knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that we have the right to be here, and that we have the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”—the right to our freedom from interference, and the right to freely self-direct our lives.

This flex is an act of supreme and final domination, the internal masculine principle defending their rights to such an extent that their enemies are utterly humiliated and banished for all time, for “every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ [Logos/truth] is Lord.” This needs to happen on an individual level as cause, which will then lead to it occurring on communal and societal levels, for the Hermetic principle of cause and effect, as well as the Hermetic principle of correspondence, govern these Logocentric processes and outcomes. It is well within our rights to destroy them and their lives, for according to John Locke, the father of Individualism and classical liberalism, the lack of reason, coupled with any attempts to gain power over us, puts aggressors in a state of war with us, and as such, we have the right to treat them as beasts of prey. In short, if you’re going to act like an unreasonable beast of prey, you will be treated as an unreasonable beast of prey; “live by the sword, die by the sword.” The modern weapons of war are now mostly psychological, and our strategies for self defense must therefore reflect this new reality.

§16. The state of war is a state of enmity and destruction; and therefore declaring by word or action, not a passionate and hasty, but sedate, settled design upon another man’s life puts him in a state of war with him against whom he has declared such an intention, and so has exposed his life to the other’s power to be taken away by him, or any one that joins with him in his defense, and espouses his quarrel; it being reasonable and just I should have a right to destroy that which threatens me with destruction; for by the fundamental law of Nature, man being to be preserved as much as possible, when all cannot be preserved, the safety of the innocent is to be preferred, and one may destroy a man who makes war upon him, or has discovered an enmity to his being, for the same reason that he may kill a wolf or a lion, because they are not under the ties of the common law of reason, have no other rule but that of force and violence, and so may be treated as a beast of prey, those dangerous and noxious creatures that will be sure to destroy him whenever he falls into their power. ~John Locke, Second Treatise on Government §16

To accomplish the ultimate task of defeating our enemy, and since our enemy’s primary weapon is guilt manipulation, we require the purity of inner “innocence”, the same pure state of innocence and being that Jesus demonstrated on the cross where he was able to maintain his inner state of absolute innocence until the very end, and not in a defensive or victimized manner either, but in a purity of soul, will, love, and grace. Do not mistake this type of innocence with that of a naive child who is still in conformity consciousness, but it is a state of being where one operates in an objectively moral manner free from “moral grey areas” of any sort, as confusion, which is a lack of moral clarity, leads to the fear of accruing guilt/debt, and that ends up dictating many people’s actions, and not moral clarity. What are the two verdicts that one can hear in a court of law? Guilty and innocent, therefore, let us focus on our innocence, and not resisting all of the claims of our so-called guilt, so that we can stop all attempts at flipping the burden of proof on us in their collective tracks. Remember, nobody needs to prove their innocence, we can maintain our state of innocence and let others attempt in futility to prove our guilt, and they must prove it so with the truth of Logos, and not with subjectively manipulative tactics.

Since our focus creates our reality, let’s focus on truth, being moral, understanding morality, finding moral clarity, owning our actions, and living in a perpetual state of innocence, because when one is governed by innocence from the Logos within, they will 1) gravitate towards objectively moral thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, 2) avoid objectively immoral thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and 3) feel innocent about ignoring and dismissing the subjectively moral dogmas found in the herd’s morality of the collectively unconscious masses.

Here’s some affirmations (commercial/karmic offers made to ourselves, to life, and to the world around us), and they will help us to focus on creating the new, rather than fighting the old:

  1. I can discover objectively moral clarity.
  2. I can understand (stand under) objective morality (Logos).
  3. I can live an objectively moral life.
  4. I can love the truth more and more every day.
  5. I can internalize Logos in my heart.
  6. I can BE and FEEL innocent all of the time.
  7. I can integrate innocence into my state of being.
  8. I can radiate innocence.
  9. I love that my moral clarity grants my innocence.
  10. I love feeling innocent.
  11. I love having moral clarity.

THE UNITY PROCESS: I’ve created an integrative methodology called the Unity Process, which combines the philosophy of Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, refine their viewpoints, and to achieve a positive focus. You can give it a try by contacting me for a private session.
