THE GROWING DISCONTENT: THE CAPTURE, AND RUMBLINGS OF REVOLT, WITHIN THE PROFESSIONS

As most of you are aware, I’ve written a lot on this site, and spoken in my video blogs News and Views from the Nefarium, about the growing erosion of the “social contact” between the western oligarchs and the people, and this growing cynicism is also reflected by a growing uneasiness within the professional classes. I continue to be intrigued – not shocked, nor surprised – by the emails I get from professionals, particularly physicians and lawyers, but in a few cases, academics or even people in the finance and banking sectors, reflecting a growing discontent. Indeed, in the political climate within this country, there is increasing talk of votes of “no confidence,” and I find – whenever these sentiments are aired here – that invariably I get comments reflecting the same discontent from Europe – Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom seem to lead the way, but I’ve had similar comments from people in Italy, Lithuania, and Sweden. Similarly, I have had comments from New Zealand and most of all, Australia.

Now even Zero Hedge has picked up on this theme, in a post by Charles Hugh Smith:

Guest Post: The Rot Runs Deep 3: The Capture of the Professional Class

The history outlined in the above-referenced article – one of gradual corporate take-over of healthcare, and often in a fashion contrary to the best intuitions of the healthcare professional toward his or her patients – is one that can be reproduced in almost any profession: law, the academy, and I would strongly urge: “big science.” The corporate mentality is, after all, based upon, and is founded upon the doctrine of corporate person. This doctrine is, by the nature of the case, a doctrine that defines a kind of group person by dint of the common operations that individual persons within that group perform, and then adds to this a special chartered status in law.

From this matrix there emerges a “group think” mentality, a “get along to go along”  and “be a team player” approach to all facets of life, such that individual creativity, and thus crushes the willingness to think outside the box in “heretical” fashions, a tendency particularly evident in the priesthoods of physics and biology (followed closely by anthropology and history). In a strange way, one almost of deja vu, we have been here before in human history, when the corporation became so powerful it dictated to professionals and kings, and this was during the Middle Ages and the period of the great Florentine “super companies”, the Bardi, and Peruzzi. Then, the philosophical debate that needed to occur, over the nature and extent of corporate personhood in law, was not had to nearly the degree that it should have been had, but the debate is almost completely non-existent in modern times. The “Occupy” movement, creature of the very financial oligarchs it claimed to be against, should have been having this discussion, should have been leading it, but the nascent steps being taken by a few within that movement to bring the issue to discussion never took off and, I suspect, were deliberately thwarted.

But it is a debate that needs to happen, and, I suspect, doctors and nurses – i.e., those professions which deal with life and death decisions on a daily basis, and which see on a daily basis the results of unfettered corporate and government intrusion on the practice of their art – are the ones best suited to begin that deep philosophical discussion. It is a discussion that is long overdue…

See you on the flip side.

  1. Evening guys and gals,

    i’ve known for quite a while that these banksters had suppressed technologies that would change everything for humanity but I recently learned to what extent these technologies were actually known and being worked on. I was tipped off after watching the Thrive documentary about a month ago and have spent almost every minute of every ay since then reading up on electrical engineering, real magnetics research and true physics and I just want to say…Holy Crapola!!!

    http://Www.peswiki.com

    and THIS is how the Iranians captured that secret drone, the “Sentinel” (right out of the matrix -scumbags!) and this is why they don’t want to attack Iran:

    http://www.keshefoundation.org

    This is history in the making, my friends. I think between this knowledge being spread worldwide by the Internet, Iran breaking the petrodollar rules and getting away with it, and the banking collapse the banksters just might end up getting Nuremberged!!! No wonder DHS bought 1.5 billion bullets! They’re scared witless!!

    By the way, Doc, appreciate you not censoring my post. Most folks don’t have the time to research this stuff and are still plugged into the Matrix. I can proudly say I haven’t watched TV since 1997 (well, a bit of Bloomberg just to see what lies they’re peddling).

    The future’s so bright I just gotta wear shades!

    • Yes, it is, isn’t it?
      Did you find in your research, any reference
      to the Sun actually brightening in recent years?

  2. “…growing cynicism is also reflected by a growing uneasiness within the professional classes.”

    this would explain the recent talk about the benefits of putting lithium in the water. I even read a New York Times Magazine article a while back extolling the virtues of such an action.

    Occupy Wall Street– is that a victory or a failure for the banksters? Obviously their in-house astrologers told them social upheaval was in the cards for 2011- 2013, so they stirred up controlled rebellions across the globe including the United States. The only thing– no one showed up for the US revolts. Has the drugging and the mental conditioning of the US masses been so successful that they can’t even break themselves free from their televisions and leave their homes to complain about the in your face corruption and deterioration of lifestyle? Are the banksters high fiving this engineered apathy of their making? Or does this abject apathy not bode well for the banksters and the future plans they have for the American herd?

  3. I noticed my comment to Kent about voting “for romeny” is now “awaiting moderation”. It’s your website but if you censor my comment you’ll be contributing to their propaganda subversion of this country.

    @Kent

    Please consider this before you “vote for Romney”:

    http://bollyn.com/index.php#article_13621

    The $100 million that Adelson pledged to donate to Romney in order to get Obama out of the White House is the oil in the wheels of Romney’s election campaign.
    - “In Jerusalem speech, it was Romney’s voice but Netanyahu’s words,” by Barak Ravid, Ha’aretz, July 30, 2012

    Sheldon Adelson is the Zionist casino gangster and ally of Benjamin Netanyahu, who is bankrolling the Romney presidential bid with $100 million of his dirty dollars.  Ian Fleming knew the type well and wrote about their criminal behavior in the James Bond books.  

    On Monday, July 30, Mitt Romney, the leading Republican candidate in the U.S. presidential election, held a fund-raising breakfast for donors and pulled in more than one million dollars – at $50,000 per couple – in Israel.  Fundraising in a foreign state; shouldn’t that be illegal?  The Washington Post reported that Romney was likely to get a very warm welcome in the Zionist state where his old friend Benjamin Netanyahu is the prime minister.   

    The hardline Zionist casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, like a mega criminal out of a James Bond story, is bankrolling the Romney campaign.  Ha’aretz reported on July 30 that Adelson has pledged $100 million to fund Romney into the White House.  Romney was seated next to Adelson at today’s million dollar breakfast fundraiser in Jerusalem. Adelson has personally given Romney a least $10 million of his sleazy dirty casino dollars.  Why are gangsters serving a foreign state allowed to buy U.S. presidents? (Photo: “Sugar Daddy Woes: The Federal Investigation of Sheldon Adelson”)

    ————-

    On Bollyn’s site you’ll also find more info about Bain Capital and Romney’s supervisor has been a woman named Orit Gadesh, whose parents were mossad.

    These are the same people who committed 911. Sheldon Adelson is the man who inherited Meyer Lansky’s casino empire. The Italian mob was always publicized by jewish controlled Hollywood as a smoke screen for the real gangsters which were jews. Meyer Lansky was a Rotscum cut-out for handling drug trafficking and money laundering jut like the Bronfmans in Canada.

    Please realize that you are being bombarded with slick propaganda. Right now the American inteligence community and some of the military brass are in open revolt against the worst excesses of the zionist cabal (who are NOT all jews). Chairman of the joint chief Dempsey told Nutty-yahoo no about invading Iran and was targeted for assassination a few day later in Afghanistan. He later said the USA was not going to be “complicit” in an attck on Iran. The intelligence community then leaked a draft report entitled “Preparing for a Post Israel Middle East”. (foreignpolicyjournal.com). Lots of people in the military and intelligence communities now know Mossad carried out 911 (see Dr Alan Sabrosky).

    THEY HAVENT CARRIED OUT A FALSE FLAG BECAUSE ThEY DONT FULLY CONTroL OBAMA. I know Obama’s a joke and a fake but at least that group isn’t part and parcel of the zionist mob like the bushes are and like romney is.

  5. This was a welcome blog. I know so many professionals who are done with this insanity, friends of mine who want out. I am an IT professional making a 6-figure salary. No formal education but worked my way up the “ladder of success”. I have been in management positions for more than 25 years and strain and pressure to go along with the program have taken its toll. I have been slowly executing on my plans to drop out. The last step is underway – selling my golf course gated community home to get out of this prison How did I end up here???My next job will be one I choose (at a lower salary with less responsibility) not one I need to support things that just don’t matter anymore. There are many like me here in NC. There is a quiet revolution starting to happen.within the professional class

  6. Thanks for the “Zero Hedge” link. Spent the afternoon reading posts there and the “Two Minds” site from which this piece is derived.

    ZH is produced by uber-insiders, the driven financial elite of Wall Street. Thus details of what’s really going on have been revealed in all their gruesome glory. Rather interesting indeed that ZH has found common cause with its near opposite “TM.” That 1% is enabling odd alliances among the excluded.

    I’ve spent most of my life on the other side of the class divide. With those invisible to both the economic and the educated elites. Watching as the managerial and professional classes awaken to the fact that their hard work and loyalty is no longer being rewarded is for me bittersweet.

    It’s a Pastor Niemoller thing. WWII Germany. “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists… the Jews… Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out.”

    When that Rust Belt happened, who among the intelligensia cared about some obsolete guy in blue denim? The Democrats concurred; switching from strategies that appealed to their traditional base to a focus on the undecided suburbanites. Supporting policies like NAFTA and the WTO. With no one who cared about their futures, working people were left to TV preachers, NRA fear mongers, and the astroturf Tea Party.

    The S & L scandal should have been the wake-up call for the upper middle classes. But by then, most were working long hours. And the few experts and leaders who did sound warnings were ignored in the increasing noise of all those whistling in the dark.

    But now we all see the monster. The corporate “person;” soulless, immortal, living off the energy of its victims. The hideous irony of its “rights” as arising from arguments over the 14th Amendment, while real persons have become reduced to its de facto slaves. And the stellar achievement of democracy fading under the weight of one dollar, one vote.

  7. This may be slightly off topic. Today I went to see my eye surgeon who gave me a “new” eye three weeks ago at a large Texas VA hospital. This same doctor did the same surgery three years ago on my left eye. But then he was working for a rather large and spread out, multi-city corporate hospital.

    I’ve noticed this man is looking much younger and younger. I thought he was near my age (69) based on the way he used to look. When he went to work for the Veterans Hospital I thought he had retired and had begun a new career with a new employer. He didn’t retire he quit and made a career change.

    Today I told his technician how much younger he looks – at least 20 years my junior. I ask the tech if it might be because he is wearing his hair longer giving him a more youthful appearance.

    She said no, he is just not under the same pressed for time strain he suffered under the private corporation that was only after the patient’s money. That private hospital pushed their surgeons to do too many operations and sometimes even when surgery wasn’t necessary or too soon.

    I recall taking my Mother to him about 25 years ago at that large corporate hospital. This doctor looks younger now than he did 25 years ago. There he had to teach residents and Texas A&M medical students also.

    The technician had quit that hospital and came over to the VA also. She pointed out her dark blue running shoes that she could never wear at her old hospital. What pressure can do to folks. I bet my doc had to take a good $400,000 pay cut…but he looks much happier and healthier.

    Just maybe he was so rushed when he did my first eye that he had to do it over 12 days later.

    Sorry for getting personal but that’s all I know.

    • Wednesday night at the DNC Slick Willie pulled off a really good speech and the man absolutely hates O’Bummer.

      My wife said he’s good; I tend to believe him. I said of course he is good; he’s one of the best liers America has ever produced away from Hollywood. He is the man who when questioned on television about one of his little escapades replied, “It depends on what is means.”

      In the new book “Amateur” there is a chapter that goes into just how much Clinton hates Obama.

      I can’t wait for the crash to come and be done with it. Look for a false flag before too long.

      I’ll vote for Mitty. Really it is just one vote against the jerk in the White House. I’m a Ron Paul fan and I am afraid way too many Paulites will write him in throwing the thing to Barry S.

      There are just too many old hippies left and yes “left is a pun. I hate that bunch because in 1968 while I was in air force uniform one of them spit on me at the San Fransisco Airport. I should have received a Purple Heart for that…but then I wasn’t in declared combat zone.

      Oh, to go back to the 1950s when life was sweet. Yes, I was for Nixon in 1960. He’s the man who later signed my commission. Like those crooked republicans. At least they were U.S. citizens.

      That FDR pulled some shady stuff like allowing Hawaii to get that surprise attack.

      Back O’Bummer. About all those troops who were killed in that helicopter crash the night of Seal Team Six, the guy in the Oval Office sent out for letters to the next of kin. They were form letters and signed with an automatic pen.

      That made all those folks back home feel really important!

      It’s late and I’m not going to edit or correct spelling.

  8. That’s why 9/11 is pivitol.
    For once one relizes that 9/11, was indeed an inside job, their whole house of cards collapses. Then, the rest of the 5 Stages; after DENIAL…,
    …Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.
    After acceptance; it’s time to fix it.

    Round-up the usual suspects:
    the ones that are in-your-face obvious.
    …Then walk the cat back.

    • Not the same person unless he is such an advanced adept that he can bi-locate. And shape-shift.

      Although a wry smily face might be just the antidote we need for the overwrought clock and dagger desperation of failing econopathic empires.

  9. the latest news about the medical/pharma industry here in Germany (began about a month ago) is that the medical insurance companies have such an over-flow of money in their coffers that there has been an outcry to give some of the money back to the insured (one is required to pay an extranious 10 Euros every 3 months if one visits the doc even just once within these these 3-month time frames)-

    we’ll see how this plays out- the medical/pharma industry is big-buck oriented in every country in the world so we’ll just have to see how all of this will eventually play out (or not) here in Germany-

  10. Irony, that linked article is running an ad for an Humana “health plan” designed to rip off a better government plan.

    Humana is the big for profit hospital chain.

    For profit hospitals only really took of in the 1970s and Humana was a firster.

  11. By the way, Jared, I think pissrahell is not going to like this coming new day one bit…no sireee! There’s a leaked report compiled by the 16 intelligence agencies calling for a disbanding of AIPAC and all of the zionist influence in America:

    google “Preparing For A Post Israel Middle East”

    Just wait until the real story of 911 (bollyn.com) goes mainstream!!!

    Sweet justice!

  12. For people who have been awake for a while now this is a beatiful moment. And yes, food, energy, medicine, money etc etc etc have all been manipulated for true genocidal profit.

    Once the banksters and their minions are Nuremberged a true renaissance will sweep the world. Behold a vast chunk of the technologies they have suppressed:
