Apocalypse Surival & Middle Classes

Featured

As poverty spreads, the middle-classes are now becoming affected by the world changes. Not to mention, the recent climate effects. Yet, how is it that certain personality types within the middle-classes are more prone to experiencing a complete mental breakdown, which causes them to defy their own survival instincts? Carl Jung and Freud often debated regarding the influence of the human beings will to live and will to die. Otherwise referred to as a death-wish. In circumstances of survival, an individual will often seek to group up  middleclasscartoonwith individuals that could benefit their situation, allowing for a higher rate of survival through team effort. Yet, not all individuals are capable of acting rationally after their entire world has been shattered. I have discovered no record of this phenomena within Thanatology, however, I consider the research performed into this subject most fascinating. The poor have each other. The rich have money for bodyguards and supplies. The middle classes have none of the above, making them a hazard in prolonged survival situation with no way out. The survival mentality and capability of the individual is in essence defined by their psychological and physical state, past experiences as well as relevant knowledge. Subconsciously, the middle classes would feel drawn towards the individuals that they would wish to die with, as the life that they have known has ended. The poor choose their friends for different motives than the rich, yet both social groups tend to associate with one another on a more personal basis than the middle class does. They like to separate themselves from society. I have associated this phenomena with the death drive. During times of trauma, we are drawn to individuals that we subconsciously believe will aid the transition of consciousness that occurs throughout a social and psychological breakdown. The conscious mind struggles with the knowledge of the subconscious mind. The knowledge persists that they will not be able to return to their former life, compromising their capacity for psychological survival. Middle Class individuals have a disconnected social life, leaving very little social support networks in times of need. Now, imagine the average house-wife, the type that follows a very rigid, habitual pattern in everyday life. The one that drops her kids off to school 100 yards away in either direction in three different schools in a large vehicle, such as a Landrover, and then spends her day at the Salon, shopping or purchasing a manicure. The types that will do almost anything to avert poverty and seek comfort out of luxury. Even within a functioning society, these individuals are displaying inclinations towards hysteria, violent outbursts, almost exhibiting tendencies of an OCD bipolar. Their routines and habits have become coping mechanisms. During an apocalypse hard choices arise, if the three children and the wife are in different locations to far to travel to, only one individual can be saved in the end, but which one? One does not attain a cushy life in modern society without a cut throat nature and blind ignorance to the truth. To live with such choices knowingly can shatter the psyche beyond the point of return, although they know there was no other way. Historically, these are the individuals that used to run the town and village councils, the ones that would run other individuals out of time. They like their life the way it is, and will do anything to preserve it, even if it is impossible. In a life or death situation, they do not distinguish between having an argument and shooting an innocent getting in their way. Yet, it is pettier than that, they attempt to put their middle-class life back together. These are the types that struggle to leave their homes after being struck by natural disasters in the area, unable to cope with the loss, they still follow their routines up to the point of obsession, if not destruction. Not the type of woman, you’d like to encounter during an apocalypse. Within modern media, they have become stereotyped as the hysterical women that manage to sabotage the entire plan of the main characters, yet often avert death until the end of the film, whilst they do not understand the consequences of their own actions, they simply see the short-term view and instant gratification of the situation with the false that life will simply return to its former state. Whereas most individuals are able to cope perfectly fine with the existence of aliens, government conspiracies or the corruption within more than half of society, these types are unable to even discuss the subject as it makes the increasingly uncomfortable. They’re the types that are happy not knowing.describe-yourself2

The male equivalence of this personality type is often an overterritorially active, they will neglect the group survivor mentality and simply resort to protecting their family unit to extreme degrees. If any of the children are female or have medical conditions, such as asthma, these tendencies become even more severe. They often act in a manner, which is overprotective to the degree self-destruction. One has to remember that during a mental breakdown, the normal functioning of the psyche is disrupted and the individual is under a constant sway of emotion that compromises the presence of mind. The male equivalence is often driven into behaviour by the loss, which could be classified as overterritorially violent, if not manic. Overall, this personality type in an apocalypse situation, in family groups or in large groups, is the worst kind of survivor, as they have a complete lack of reality. Dependent upon how much the society is affected, the individual has no previous experience of handling real life situations due to their upper middle class standing. Simply stating the obvious fact, they are often acting out of extreme fear in circumstances of survival, in which they will sacrifice the lives of others for their own or their family unit.

Rise of the Anti-Hero

“Once peaceful revolution is impossible.Violent revolution is inevitable.” – Abraham Lincoln

As I progress my way up the levels of society, as an individual that was born into a middle-class family, the hypocrisy within the modern world became evident early on. I noticed that every professional individual has a psychological drive that allows them to do as they do. At times, even forces them to the brink of burning themselves out entirely. That which drives them inwardly to achieve that which they set out to do is clearly resembled within their true psychological make-up. Every doctor strives down that particular path for a reason, as it equals voluntary suffering for anyone without a large bank account. Truth be told, it is almost similar to a promise. Something, they promise to themselves or to those around them. Something, that keeps them going at the very core of their being. Nowadays, professionals are expected to uphold the lie. To abide by the politics of their environment. Pharmaceutical drugs, for instance, are not designed to cure, they are conditioned to prolong the cause and result in side-effects. The Hippocratic oath has become a joke, as professionals have their careers ruined by large corporations for a differing opinion. The truth about life extension is only experienced by those that have worked within the bottom of the system and truly comprehend its consequences. Individuals are kept alive for years in agony with very little speech capacity or ability to use anything other than a bedpan. And even that cannot be used without prompting. After years of caring for others in almost inhumane circumstances, the purpose behind my actions was revealed to me. To end suffering. Not by the means of death. Euthanasia can only be established within a society that does not shun and ignore death as ours does currently. Death is a mere transition of consciousness. Energy cannot be destroyed, it is merely transferred. The end of such a life should be a celebration, years of being unable to maneuver or actually form proper sentences must be torture. Personally, I would rather be die before suffering for over 10 years with almost no cognitive function, no ability to be of use to the world. Especially the relatives suffer, their loved one has basically died already. There is no possible way of communicating most of the time. Their loved one is a mere shadow of their former self, which prolongs the grieving process exponentially, at times even complicates it. The corrupt system chooses to ignore these individuals. Not as much since the compassionate care act within the United States, but in other countries needless suffering is still prolonged. This leads me to the promise that is made by every professional, apart from the Hippocratic oath. Their inner drive. Certain professionals choose money, power or control as the reason behind their actions, which is clearly evident by the contradicting opinions within the current Cannabis debates. Those against Medical Marijuana are supported by large corporations and powerful individuals that hold financial control over their lives. Reputations are ruined for one word in the wrong place. Truth be told, how many have been killed by exposing governmental and corporate cover-ups. The rich and powerful do not shy away from taking a life to protect their status. Corporate psychopaths have ruined thousands, if not billions of lives, yet they still remain within their seat of power. How did this happen? When did it become bad manners to kill the bad guy? In a recently published article of mind, societies focus towards the anti-hero was clearly noted. We are drawn to them, because they do as we cannot. If we were to suddenly execute every single peadophile within the system, how long would it take until we execute the pope or the EU bankers? Imprisonment is no solution. If you control the judge and the jury, there is no prison that can hold you. There are certain individuals walking upon this planet that are untouchable by the law, yet not by the people. We are drawn to taking the law into our own hands, because the law has in essence failed us all. The corruption within the system has come to infect all that was once just and virtuous. In order to crawl up the ranks one has to be corrupt as the individuals on top, very few decent individuals claw their way up there. Truth be told, the system is facing its inevitable collapse and we can all sense the brewing storm. That sensation with the gut, that things will get worse before they get better. That may be true, yet martial law being enforced on certain parts of the planet and the continual increase in natural disasters due to HAARP as well as global warming leave us with just enough time to act before the end. A takeover awaits us. The economic war that has been waged since between the illegalization of marijuana and the end of world war one. It was at the point of no return, when the entire face of civilizations had been changed by the simple means of applied social engineering. It was at that point in history that true economic warfare originated and it is still continuing today. The blueprints for the current economic design for this planet were designed within mid 1830’s, if not earlier…we are now merely facing the endgame.
