Maybe Demons do walk the earth
I have heard it said that the greatest trick that Satan ever played is convincing the world that he did not exist. My thoughts today resonate with that idea. A particularly gruesome prediction of the end of times might read that demons would walk the earth. Soulless, faceless beings that know only greed and avarice, they desire nothing other than to achieve their own ends leaving the ruined lives of human beings behind them as they battle each other to control more and more, seizing wealth and taking happiness away from all those that they use. The greatest trick they played was to convince men that they were completely innocent of harm and even beneficial agents, seeking nothing other than the betterment of mankind.
I am not going to make any end of days predictions. Such things are always viewed as the words of crackpots and lunatics. At any rate I have no belief that there is going to be any sudden cataclysm that will wipe mankind out. I have little doubt that there will be events at some point in the future that could in the past have wiped out mankind. I shan’t say that we have placed ourselves beyond such harm now. If the dinosaurs can be wiped out then it is certain that events could easily lead to a future where the only memory of us could be that there were once an awful lot of monkeys on the planet. We have done extraordinarily well to survive for as long as we have. Particularly in the light of how much effort we have been putting into trying to kill each other off.
I will however, state that these faceless, soulless demons do indeed walk the earth at this point in time. They are behemoths exerting huge control over mankind and they are also small and harmless creatures that simply exist. They are legion. Before you dismiss me out of hand bear in mind that according to companies legislation, a company is a legal personality. In order that it is able to enter contracts it must hold legal standard as a corporate being. Corporate being related to corporeal – of the body; companies are animate corpses. They are hives, their elements made up of the life they absorb into their being; individuals who must relinquish personal concerns and interests. The people who make up a company’s employees and agents must forget about themselves and consider only the welfare of the monstrous creature itself.
Bees in a hive act as constituents of a whole. Our own bodies are made up of single cells working in concert together; in a symbiosis that has evolved over time. Millions of years ago single celled organisms were the dominant inhabitants of the planet. They learnt to work together and gradually became dependant on each other to such an extent that their connection became coded in DNA and they could pass on their constitution to future forms that would evolve to ensure their interactions were more effective. Some of them became human and some of them became the bees who learnt the same trick to create the hives, a form of intelligence to which they all contributed. In the modern day we see the same trick being pulled off with humanity. The companies try to absorb us into their being so that we become nothing more than constituents of this soulless juggernaut, working to assimilate wealth and maximise profit at the cost of all individuality and happiness within.
A little over 100 years ago the dominant form of business was the co-operative. People were members of friendly societies and they would work together for the benefit of all. A company only seeks to work for the benefit of its shareholders. It will have regard for the welfare of its employees but only to the extent that it serves the interests of the shareholders. If the employees fail to serve the interests of the shareholders then they are expelled like dead tissue – the excrement of the company alongside its other waste products. When this doesn’t happen the company can become ill and the shareholders can sue the board for failing to maximise their benefit.
The time of the co-operatives was ended by the rise of companies as workers developed a faith that by forming unions they could protect themselves. The manner in which all personal welfare of the workers was neglected if it conflicted with the prime directive of assimilation of profit meant that profit could be maximised and power could grow so that the friendly societies could be crushed underfoot to make way for these new ‘unfriendly’ societies.
These legal personalities now control most of the face of the Earth. They have their own agenda. They have no concern for people as was proved recently by the popular coffee chain that refused to supply coffee to troops due to the way it might conflict with future trade among the combatants. With the development of intelligent machines you will see that people will not even be needed to run the companies at all. People will no longer be paid because they will no longer be needed. Companies will rule the earth and humanity will be a type of vermin except for the few descendants of the original investors in the companies. They will think that it is they who rule the Earth but really they will be the slaves of soulless demons ruling over a world of poverty and want.
