When the State Becomes God

The Triumph (and Failure) of John Nash's Game Theory

"We have habits that are practically impossible to break, unknown prejudices, unseen subconscious motives and insurmountable mental walls.

Many of these behaviors are culturally influenced.

If free will is overated, then mythology has great control consequences.

It gives us the power to blame victims who have no real choice, and to dismiss the helpless who have no real chance." - JD Trout

What is the Hegelian Dialectic?


"By the late 1940s a number of the more important advisers to CIA and State Department psychological warfare campaigns had trained as Marxists at one point or another during their careers, and were now applying dialectics and other Marxian insights to the task of psychological warfare." - Christopher Simpson, Science of Coercion

To control a population turn one segment against another.

Find divisive issues like - eugenics, the death penalty, homosexual rape, gun control, permanent war, transsexuality, transhumanism and vaccines.

To divide a unified target population take advantage of an upheaval.

Use thought police to initiate political witch hunts.

Steal taxpayer funds to fill the financial coffers of those in government.

Use the military-industrial-corporate-media complex to fight a war on Iraq to keep Halliburton, Bechtel and the oil tycoons empires intact.


"The Party is not interested in the overt act.

The thought is all we care about."

The Politics of Fear

"In the end the Party announced that two and two made five, and you had to believe it.

It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it.

Not merely the validity of actual experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy." - Wiston Smith

"Keep comparing yourself to others and
see how badly you can feel about yourself.

It's not masochistic; it's the American way."

Like people, chimps prefer teamwork over competition

Science of Why Humans Constantly Compare Themselves to Others

"Where none are unemployed in the pre-machine environment of today, it is safe to assume that at least one man out of ten would always be unemployed; and in the troughs of the business cycle the ratio might run as high as two or three out of ten.

Under the hit-and-miss methods of free competition and the unlimited pursuit of profit the process implacably takes its toll." - Stuart Chase, 1931

Competition in biology and sociology, is a contest between two or more organisms, animals, individuals, groups, etc., for territory, a niche, for a location of resources, for resources and goods, for mates, for prestige, for recognition, for awards, for group or social status, or for leadership.

The duality of competition requires some to succeed while others fail.

Competition is essentially detrimental to every aspect of social interaction.

Human relationships, self-respect, enjoyment, and productivity all increase when individuals break out of the neurotic pattern of relentless competition.

A narcissistic state of mind requires competition.

Narcissitic individuals compete to establish themselves as the most intelligent, the most attractive, or the wealthiest.

Narcissitic individuals compete because they desire acknowledgement, recoginition and they do so in an attempt to be seen as superior.

"Narcissism can be conceptualized as a self-regulating system, where self-esteem and enhancement are sought through a variety of social means with little regard for the consequences borne by others.

Agentic traits, assertiveness, extraversion, and self-esteem are all correlated.

Narcissism is associated with benefits to the individual that are primarily affective and most evident in the short-term, but the costs of narcissism are paid by others and, eventually, by the individual in the long-term.

Narcissism may be positive in the short term for individuals, but negative for other people, society, and the individual in the long term." - Jean Twenge

the fittest

Social Darwinism

American concepts of competition rest on false assumptions centered around the concept of Social Darwinism.

Most major accomplishments throughout human history have been achieved simply out of a desire to discover or create and not directly aimed at.

Social Darwinism is a late nineteenth century ideology used to justify social policies which make no distinction between those who cause disaster and those who are left to pay to clean up the mess.

Social Darwinisman elevates the notions of:

annointed messianic Supreme Leader, in ancient times half man-half god offspring of a sexual union of a mortal woman and a male procreator god;

competition between "legal persons" occurs on a level playing field;

imperialism is justified as certain 'races' are superior.

Pinocchio nose

Pinocchio, a marionette with unformed morality, often falls into the temptation to get carried away by bad company and is prone to lying.

The Fox and the Cat, bind his arms, pass a noose around his throat, and hang him from the branch of an oak tree before changing their minds and selling Pinocchio, along with Lampwick, to the men that run Toyland where everyone plays all day and never works.

The first myth, the myth of Social Darwinism,
is that competition between humans is necessary.

The phrase 'survival of the fittest' implies internal struggle among members of a species is the overriding concern.

This creates a purposeful fundamental misunderstanding of the theory of natural selection which states explicitly that survival is dependent upon changing environmental factors.

"We've seen the gross misuse of evolution - under the guise of Social Darwinism and the "survival of the fittest" - to justify class oppression, monopolies, and imperialism." - David P. Barash

Group coöperation contributes far more to reproductive success within the group than competitive inclinations of individuals directed within the group.

Assume a single violently fierce alpha male begins a slaughter with a single or multiple murder within a family, a tribe or other small group.

If all the other males are killed then there is a question of group continued reproductive viability between family members as the genetic pool suffers.

An example can be seen recently in history with the experience of Fletcher Christian and mutineers of the Bounty who settled on Pitcairn Island.

John Adams was the sole male survivor of a party landing a decade before.

Direct physically confrontational is a risky strategy that rarely pays off.

Raising human offspring is a difficult time consuming undertaking.

Those who coöperate are more likely to be reproductively successful.

Successful groups have a predisposition for coöperation in offspring.

Coöperation is pervasive within any successful grouping of humans.


The second myth is competition mints Übermensch

Self-respect and self-esteem is best built outside of competitive frameworks.

Huckleberry is unable to solve an arithmetic problem.

The teacher asks Huckleberry to think carefully.

Huckleberry is unable to answer when unwanted attention is directed.

But attention hounds have no such problem waving hands and sighing.

Finally Morn is called upon and proudly delivers the correct solution.

The failure of Huckleberry made it possible for Morn to succeed.

To a Hopi or Lakota, Morn's performance would be seen as cruel.

As competition occurs in every culture it must be a part of human nature.

No behavior can be an innate trait if a single culture does not exhibit it !

working together

The third myth is that competition is 'fun'.

Play is fun. Playful competition can be fun. Competiton can be defeating.

The original concept of play emphasizes process before outcome.

Once you introduce a 'need', an outcome, to any acvtivity then you have shifted the nature of the activity engaged in from 'play' to 'work'.

Play is for fun while work is for survival.

Two children sit on opposite sides of a checker board.

A marker is placed on the middle square and the children are told they will take turns moving the marker one square at a time for a total of 20 moves.

If a child gets the marker to his side of the board, he will receive a prize.

The game will be played 4 times with alternate children going first.

Four-and-five-year-old, Anglo-American and Mexican-American children almost universally helped one another take turns in winning.

The child who goes second moves the marker in the direction of the first child' goal so virtually every game ends with the first child getting a prize.

These children had 'fun' and are happy they have accomplished their task.

Among seven-to-nine-year-olds the pattern changes completely.

Both Anglo-American and Mexican-American children that watch television prevent anyone from winning 50 to 80 per cent of the time.

These children are not happy. These children did not have 'fun'.

Mexican children seven-to-nine-year-olds with little contact with MICE culture managed to coöperate and earn prizes in a majority of the games.

They had 'fun' and were happy simply enjoying each others company.


10 Real Risks of Multitasking

The fourth myth is competitive frameworks
make for the highest levels of productivity.

High levels of conscious orientation toward mastery of skills are found among high achievers, but top achievers show low levels of competitiveness.

Competitiveness consistently correlates negatively with achievement.

Those high in achievement were low in competitiveness as they were focused on the task at hand and were not concerned about monitoring performance.

How Free are you?

Social Psychology

"The real alternative to being number one is not being number two but being psychologically free enough to dispense with ranking."- Alfie Kohn

"Television shows like American Idol and The Bachelor teach us, things that are merely enjoyed - like singing and falling in 'love" - are piteously wasted. You have to make them into contests." - Meghan Daum

A belief in the 'benefit of competition' infects American consciousness.

Competition, an entrenched part of American popular culture, is carcinogenic to education, business and politics leaving rotting carcasses.

Competition can undermine individual growth and relationships.

This website defines a new perspective with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and ¢oer¢ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
