This is a post on the Dissident Voice forums, in reply to a James Keye article, here.
About Rove’s comment:
The elite are destroyers of the world. That is their role with respect to reality. They create nothing.
The vast majority of humans have little conscious connection to the elite. Their connection is with their family, friends, and co-workers and with the natural world. That’s where *creation* occurs, that’s where reality occurs, and real history occurs.
Instead of detailing THAT history, real history, most intellectuals detail the history of the elite, which is the history of the corruption of and destruction of real history.
The elite imagine themselves to be the real actors of the world and the intellectuals support this notion through either positive or constructive treatment of them, and no treatment at all of the non-elite.
James Keye says that the elite are the only ones who “do what they imagine”. This is the complete opposite of the truth – the elite are the only ones who *don’t* do what they imagine. No human being wants to destroy the world – only human beings who have divorced themselves from benevolence “want” to destroy the world.
Being a member of the elite is similar to being insane – noone really *wants* to be insane – it’s just that circumstances sometimes lead to such a thing, and make people think they desire it. The elite and the insane lead wonderful lives according to them and perverse lives according to those who experience them.
Take a look at common people (I don’t mean Americans, the rulers of the world) – they are very happy with their lives, remarkably happy given the travesties committed on them by the elite. Other than elite monstrosities, these people are getting exactly what they want.
It’s only the elite who are never happy, never satisfied – everyone else is often happy and often satisfied. It’s obvious who is doing what they want and who keeps doing things they hate, and then tries to perpetually correct their past actions.
It’s *only* the elite who are miserable. Even a starving young mother has a smile on her face as she looks at her child.
The elite bury their misery in power, wealth, and domination. With every destructive act they commit it rears it’s ugly head.
Real history is unexamined by the intellectuals who refuse to cover it, who believe that the Karl Roves of the world are more important than the starving mothers, or the bloated corpses, or the common people with their everyday lives.
Intellectuals constantly look for the unique, the “special”, the never-before-said, the vanguard, the original, the revolutionary, the “true”.
And in smiles, in conversation, in changing relationships, in embraces, in disagreement, in shared silence, nothing need be said, nothing can be said, according to the intellectuals, who scoff at such things and look to the Karl Roves of the world for something worthy of their critique.
In ignoring true reality intellectuals have helped build a propaganda system in conjunction with the elite whose purpose is to control reality.
Everyone smiles at their child. The intellectuals, regardless of their “political position” smile at Karl Rove. What a naughty boy he is. Now this naughty boy writes for a mainstream magazine. How dare they employ him! Don’t they know better? Don’t you see how we are trying to help you out by telling you this?
Smiles speak volumes. Volumes that cannot be written by the intellectuals, cannot be controlled by the intellectuals, and thus must be destroyed by the intellectuals.
To intellectuals, reality itself is a foreign language. Those intellectuals are xenophobic.
James Keye makes a fundamental error common to intellectual supporters of the elite – he believes that humans *want* to be members of the elite. The elite are few in number not because they are the cream of the crop of humans but because few humans want to descend to their level. Few humans want to destroy the world, but a few are willing to do so for personal profit. And unfortunately, at least with respect to the past several thousand years, that’s all it has taken.
Obama has achieved something for blacks in the same sense as a human achieves something when he becomes a devil.
According to intellectuals, Obama is a “success story”. That speaks volumes about Western intellectual leftism.
Those are more volumes that Western intellectuals have no interest in. Down the memory hole with it!
Obama will lead American blacks to imperial power and domination! Go Obama, Go Obama!
Most people achieve what they want. The history of the elite is the tragic history of the world. A history ONLY told by intellectuals.
Haven’t we had enough tragedy, or will only the death of the world be an end to it?
