In the psychic sphere there is a noticeable lack of motivation and effort on the part of intelligent and educated people at present to properly utilize their acquired knowledge for the collective welfare. This is the psychology of an apathetic and elitist class who do not like to move from their privileged position to work for the welfare of the common people. This psychology gives rise to a special type of intellectual capitalism.
Intellectual inertia has assumed dangerous proportions. Taking advantage of this intellectual stagnancy, rapacious capitalists deviously spread a subtle web of exploitation and suck the vitality of society. Through this process capitalists are able to perpetuate their insidious rule of exploitation.
People have been loudly protesting against capitalism for a long time, and on numerous occasions have launched agitations against capitalist exploitation. Remaining vigilant about people’s dissatisfaction with the capitalist system, capitalists have continually changed their methods of exploitation. For instance, they have bought off disgruntled intellectuals and used them as tools of exploitation in their economic schemes.
Capitalism has always adapted to changing circumstances. Thus we see that in different periods there have been different forms of capitalist exploitation such as feudalism, laissez-faire capitalism, imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, mixed economy, multinational corporations, etc. Today even communism, which was once a deadly weapon against capitalist exploitation, has become a blunt and obsolete tool.
Psycho-economic exploitation is the latest form of dangerous and all-devouring capitalist exploitation. It is a special type of exploitation which first weakens and paralyses people psychologically in various ways, and then exploits them economically. Some of the methods of psycho-economic exploitation include…the extensive propagation of pseudo-culture, exemplified by pornographic literature which debases people’s mind and particularly undermines the vitality of the youth…the imposition of numerous restrictions on women, forcing them to be economically dependent on men…an unpsychological education system with frequent political interference by vested interests…the negation of dharma in the name of secularism…and placing the control of different mass media, such as newspapers, radio and television, in the hands of capitalists. Both intellectual exploitation and psycho-economic exploitation are great dangers to the human race today.
To counteract this threat, powerful popular sentiments will have to be generated immediately for the liberation of intellect. For this, the first requisite factor is that intellectuals must keep their intellects pure and unblemished. Casting aside all their inertia and prejudices, intellectuals will have to mix with the common people and engage themselves in their welfare. They will have to assist the common people in their development and extend their support to all anti-exploitation movements. This approach will help to root out exploitation, stabilize the structure of society and expand the intellectual standard of the common people. Human society will move forward to a brilliant future with rapid steps.
The farce of democracy has been likened to a puppet show where a handful of power hungry politicians pull the strings from behind the scene. In liberal democracies, capitalists manipulate the mass media such as the radio, television and newspapers…
But meanwhile the refugees roam about hither and thither, and today the number of refugees is not only thousands but many millions in various parts of the globe. And for their precarious existence, for the ignoble deaths of those millions of wretched people, only a handful of people – demons in human framework – are really responsible. They come to the world and leave it in great ruins. During their lifetime, they fully utilize all the mass media. The common people become confused and cannot think beyond that which the mass media tell them. It is a general weakness of common people that they are inclined to believe whatever is printed in books and journals.

Today the media is indeed in the hands of few powerful. They have capacity to publish what so ever they want us to believe and to hide things that they don’t want us to see. Common people who spend a lots of time in front of TV, doesn’t seem to have much knowledge what is really happening in the world. Even the so called activists are confused by the information that “green media” is feeding them up. Only with extensive research one can start to see behind the scenes.
There are remarkable things going on in the planetary systems, in economics and politics. Who knows about one of the most important groups of highly influential and powerful people having regular meetings? This group is called Bilderbergers.
Who knows that in all the nearest planets there are tremendous changes going on, especially during couple of last years, including heating of some planets? Who knows that there are huge magnetic and structural changes taking place in earth?
Who knows that there are thousands of sophisticated technologies existing, including so called free energy? Who knows that there are trillions of dollars court cases going on in US against government? Who knows that there is open silent coup attempt on the way in US?
Many more questions I could ask. It is claimed that only 6 rich people own the main media in the world, so you can just imagine it is just view of those 6 people, who seem to have questionable agenda; to control the world. Scandinavian media is getting most of its news from the same sources. The alternative media is under threat and exploitation. Luckily we STILL have internet…
