Bondage is the New Fashion

The world we see is the way we see the world.

In reality there is no world-in-itself; there is only worldview:

In every historical era power institutions run by self-proclaimed elites rise and pronounce their worldviews to coincide with the world-in-itself. But they don’t conform to what is; they make what is to conform to them. They come to dominate the ideology, and hence the identity of the masses by a sedating advertisement of new lures and values; they are the producers of intellectual fashions. By the law of inertia, the highest interest of a power institution is self-interest.

No method of domination and social control is more effective than dominating the self-perception and the world-perception of people. Once the power center takes control of determining the world picture, then it has taken control of the world itself.

By advertising their methods and theses to be in the interest of the mass these institutions make their worldviews to stand for the world-in-itself. These institutions are world-impersonators; they are monstrous impostors representing righteous modes of thought and conduct. By determining from above what should and what shouldn’t be thought they determine what is seen and what is not seen.

So far there have been two major historical eras each dominated by one such power institution: First came religion and its churches, and now has come science and its academia. Ironically, neither of them had to enforce their rules and regulations. Instead, they presented themselves in society with so honest and caring a face that their unquestionable authority crept into the subconscious of the masses. Their brilliant method actually made every man and woman to choose to freely advertise for their masters and to propagate the new ideology into the remotest corners.

In each era the dominant ideology was intentionally advertised to represent literacy and to stand for class and intelligence. This turned the new ideology into a new social-intellectual fashion. As a result, people were by nature, for the sake of self-interest and self-image, inclined toward a blind acceptance and obedience of the dominant ideology. Then was religion; now is science; and the mass is doing a great job sleepwalking the new worldview until it breaks down in favor of another.
