The following summarizes the writer’s ideas:
- Human consciousness took a wrong turn somewhere and has been hijacked by the same market mechanisms the Establishment employs to enslave and destroy people.
- This market form of consciousness has turned the masses into selfish predators who view the world and everything in it as “food” to satiate vulgar, self-centered appetites.
- Human consciousness shapes reality creatively but in its current form, it has been harnessed for destruction.
- Human consciousness should be developing to the realization that the world’s people must unite, that we are all in this together and that we are also unified with the natural world.
- “It is necessary to completely abandon the instinctive path of development, taking the path of intelligent construction of one’s future. Free the economy from mandatory growth and maximum profit. Bank interest should be prohibited, and the entire financial sector should become a single organism of the state.”
- “The most important issue is the rejection of false material values and a return to the true ones, which are land and water; people should again feel one with the nature around them.”
- “As for spiritual values, their return will be inevitable in conditions of unity; we are all a society of a common destiny. I cannot say how to implement all this in practice, but it will have to be done, otherwise, the wheel of history will do it, but with more tragic consequences.”
Man and the nature surrounding him are a single whole, our ancestors knew this very well, living with it in complete harmony. The fact that everything in our world is interconnected is confirmed by quantum science. It is not at all necessary to be a scientist to see the obvious, just look at a map of the planet, which, plus or minus, is 70% covered with water, the rest 30% is earth, the human body consists of 70% water and 30% earth elements. Perhaps this is a coincidence, many will think, but for some reason, I don’t think so.
Any living biological matter by its nature is a continuation of the earth, and the earth is a continuation of the sky. The physical body of each of us will in due time become part of the earth, the water, having changed its properties, will rise into the sky, purify itself, and again pour onto the earth with rain, filling the surrounding nature with life.
This is the same eternal process of “sowing and reaping” that Christ spoke about in his time. How can we break out of this closed cycle of our physical nature and realize the meaning of our life in this world?
Well, I humbly suggest prioritizing life that is not in this world, but Valiukėnas is not ready to make that leap yet. He’s entirely focused on meaning in this world:
The Soviet period, despite its many mistakes, gave us an important lesson that we need to deeply comprehend and draw conclusions for ourselves. For me personally, this period opened my eyes to all the strengths and weaknesses of human nature, it looked like the beginning of awakening from a dream, just before the dawn began.
As for the power of money and humanity’s dependence on it, the head of the Rothschild clan answered this question very directly: “People just need to stop worshiping the Golden Calf, and this dependence will disappear.”
True as that may be, what people like Valiukėnas fail to notice is that are essentially replacing the worshipping of one Golden Calf with another. In the specific case of Valiukėnas, this new Golden Calf is the vision of a unified global society in complete harmony with nature, a sort of Green Marxism, if you will.
Nowhere is this Golden Calf more clearly displayed than in Valiukėnas’s lament concerning the absence of altruism in the modern world:
At the heart of market thinking, a reflex has been developed that encourages the consumer to consider the whole world, including the people around him, as potential food for himself.
In this thinking, the concept of altruism is completely absent, which does not correspond to the nature of the world around us and man himself; this fact is directly related to the fall in the birth rate, the loss of a sense of unity, and much more.
First, the concept of altruism does not in any way correspond to the nature of the world around us and to man himself because the concept of altruism is the brainchild of Auguste Comte, the father of positivism, who vehemently denied the reality of religion and the spiritual.
Second, altruism cannot correspond to the nature of the world and to man himself precisely because it is and has always been a deeply anti-religious and anti-spiritual principle that has nothing at all to do with Christ or Christianity.
Last, Jesus did not promote altruism.
At its core, Valiukėnas’s ultimate vision concerning the development of human consciousness is the establishment of Comte’s social positivism, with society sitting atop the hierarchy of values, or as Comte called it, the hierarchy of sciences. Within this vision rests Comte’s dictum, “The only real life is the collective life of the race; individual life has no existence except as an abstraction.”
If your discernment leads you to believe that society and culture are atop the hierarchy of values or science or whatever, or that an individual should dedicate his life energies solely to the furtherment or preservation of society and culture, then your discernment remains entangled in the sticky pit of altruism and its inevitable social positivism.
The same applies to those who liberally throw around the “demography is destiny” line (also one of Comte’s ideas, by the way).
If you think that’s no big deal, remember that Comte was the man who claimed that “Religion is an illusion of childhood, outgrown under proper education.”
