On the way back from lunch…worried about the survival of democracy in my America, I reflected on history’s greatest division between peoples of a society throughout these thousands of years of records; the classic battle between the doer and the thinker.
One group, the producer, creates value versus the second group, the thinker, incapable of creating value, uses his guile to take what he can from those who have value. For every force, there is a counterforce. Yet, if one invents something useable, one becomes a producer. If the invention is not useable, it usually is subsidized by government in order to produce a producer. If one discovers a way to move production, one also becomes a producer even though in these events, thinking is essential to the process.
Thinkers, incapable of production, usually have no inventions to offer outside of thought. Laborers produce, but classically do so without thought. As societies become more complex, so do our yin and yang. Free producers hire thinkers to increase production. These thinkers, once incapable of production, now produce. Jealousies develop. Not all productions are equal. Thinkers extremely incapable of doing anything else except lying around thinking include most politicians, most contemporary college professors and public high school teachers of the social sciences, and most of the priest class throughout history.
No one lives very long without the primary producers. Merchants are more important than the harpies of the modern Women’ Studies programs at our universities. And like these harpies, along with the Aztec priests who enjoyed ripping out hearts of young men conning their public to believe the rite maintained the sun’s good health, or the AlGorites of our day who insist we sacrifice home and fortune to burn at the altar of left wing gods to avoid alleged whitemanmade catastrophes which may or may not occur, thinkers cloistered from the realities of life, can cause alot of trouble. Police and university gurus required to protect and propagate the purity of such thinking, are not of the thinking class however. They are the doers required to keep all State Socialist Dictatorships healthy.
Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin; Albert Einstein, Leonardo DaVinci, Aristotle, Isaac Newton, James Watt, I submit, used their brains thinking and producing very well, as have many others, but then I am a conservative. Modern day American lefties might prefer Karl Marx, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Fidel, or the “Greatest” , Muhammed Ali. There would be matters of opinion here.
While producers keep on producing, Modern lefties keep producing thought to rob from the producers to bribe the poor: “poor” meaning the number of voters required to keep lefties in power to continue their thinking.
At one time most American politicians were producers of goods. Conning folks to become lefties used to be a part time work. Some, especially conservatives would have to leave Washington to go home to run the store or the farm. Most everyone was conservative in those days. That was then. In the now are, Senators like Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Dick Durbin, Chris Dodd, Carl Levin, Robert Byrd, all potentates who talk all of the time, get reelected all of the time, and never bother to think at all. They simply sit on their thrones for decades preening themselves for reelections. Where should they be classified? Producers for producing hot air? Their hot air has produced a lot more hot air in Washington these days. Yes, where do we classify them?
Some scientists claim a meteor or comet hitting our earth is a realistic threat, likely to cause earth a little more trouble than carbon emissions from our breathing and driving. In fact much more trouble.
How would such a disaster affect modern producers and thinkers if 70 per cent of the earth’s population would die at first blow and 20% more in the decade to follow? I wonder if this scenario is ever discussed among anyone associated with the harpies of American university’s Women Studies Programs! We would have to remind them they probably would not be teaching or writing books any more. Wouldn’t they be angry! No television, folks…No internet. No furnaces, autos, life preservers, apples at the corner market. No Obama rallies in Berlin. No seeds for next year’s potted tomatoes.
Who would most likely survive and survive with the mostest? It would not be Barrack! Nor an old crust who clings to writings on blogs for winter enjoyment. Nor landscapers, but I might! I still know how to plant carrots! On the other hand, one would have to think very quickly and talk very cleverly about vegetables, as the marauders approach looking for satisfaction. These gangs would roast me before I could even open my mouth to discuss my value.
Sorry gals. Your population will serve the survivors as they see fit. Use your imagination where that will be. Making a comfy home might look like a pretty good deal if you’re lucky. Don’t try winking.
Males, between the ages 17 and 30 will gather in groups and begin their drive to survive. Many are already survival-
training on the streets of Los Angeles and in our worst prisons. Civilized behavior in some areas may last a week, but in most places probably for only a day or two, depending where the males come from. Guns will become noisy and will determine a certain order until ammunition runs out. Brains will be vital, but braun will decide many conflicts. Nearly everyone will be hungry and mentally and physically unprepared. Being pretty won’t matter at all. Neither producers nor talkers have much product to offer early in the disaster. Products will be simply seized. Producers such as farmers will need protection. Great hordes of survivors will wander and plunder before they wilt and die.
Since the beginning of the more civilized man, the merchants and the politicians have battled. Great losses, victims to the thinking only class have occured, most horridly in the 20th century with the advent of the greatest thugs of the Left, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and I don’t have time to list all of the other State Socialist marauders. The thinking only class now commands America’s governing, teaching, and judging institutions.
In our America, as of January 20, 2009, the scrum from the left has become a winner. Must we wait for history to write its story to answer the question, “Quo vadis?”
Comment: I wrote this article at our Prager Discussion Group Website nearly two years ago. The thinkers of the incapable-doers class have had their turn to rumble. And rumble these college gurus have…..and I am certain their noise and ‘thought” will continue.
Yet, they have been exposed as incompetents, but I am not sure in which scrum the people sense their incompetence or whether we Americans, at last, have begun to see the dangers of Marxist society.
