In the world today, scientific and technological revolution has unharnessed undreamt of resources of power and knowledge. However, man has failed to discover in himself the sources of wisdom and compassion. What is needed is an inner revolution in the psyche of man. The insight that man lacks is the apprehension that he is the maker of his problems and that the root of this problem making machinery is his mind. It is this area of perception that the ultimate freedom of man lies.

Less wishing and more awareness that criminality is often "goal oriented". Can you live without a goal?

"The sense of outrage as a society slips towards the abyss, or the sense of outrage when people mistreat you is muted. Everything is flattened by the banality of modernity. This is the heritage of all the bad little boys of the 18th century: Nietzsche, Darwin, Hegel, and Schopenhauer. These clowns were on a bad trip and they were loud about it. What they give us is a universe devoid of soul. Man looms larger and larger, notice the gender slant. Man looms larger and larger in the picture, and what this ushers us into is fascism, pure and simple." (Terence McKenna)

"If people put on false appearances, it is their own minds that get troubled ultimately. They begin to be afraid of what others would think of them and so their minds become their own enemies. If people think of deceiving others by putting on false appearances they themselves get deceived ultimately. They think, ‘We have planned and have deceived others and thereby have shown great cleverness.’ With pride they practice more and more deceptions. The consequences of their actions will be realised only when the deceptions are discovered. When the time comes, they will collapse as a result of their own deceits." (Ramana Maharshi)

Why Should I Go?

"The inferior function was in each personal realm the door where some of this collective evil could accumulate. Or, you could say that each one who had not worked on his inferior function contributed to this general disaster – in a small way – but the sum of millions of inferior functions constitutes an enormous devil! Propaganda against the Jews was very cleverly made up in that respect. For example, the Jews were insulted as being destructive intellectuals, which completely convinced all the feeling types – a projection of inferior thinking. Or they were accused of being reckless moneymakers; that completely convinced the intuitive, for they were his inferior sensation, and now one knew where the devil was. The propaganda used the ordinary suspicions that people had against others on account of their inferior function. So you can say that behind each individual the fourth function is not just a little kind of deficiency; the sum of these is really responsible for a tremendous amount of trouble." (Marie Von Franz)

Question: How does the inferior function connect with the collective evil?

Von Franz: As long as you do not really get into this stage there remains what I call the devil in the corner. This is only the personal devil, the personal inferiority of an individual, but with it collective evil comes in as well. The little open door of each individual’s inferior function is what contributes to the sum of collective evil in the world. You could observe that very easily in Germany when the devil slowly took over the situation in the Nazi movement. Every German I knew at that time who fell for Nazism did so on account of his inferior function. The feeling type got caught by the stupid arguments of the party doctrine; the intuitive type got caught by his dependence on money. He could not give up his job and did not see how he could deal with the money problem, so he had to stay in it despite the fact that he did not agree, and so on. ~ Marie-Louise von Franz, Lectures on Jung's Typology, Page 122-123>

Revolution / Rebellion

Somebody asked J.Krishnamurti about Gandhi's struggle for the untouchables to be permitted into the temples. And do you know what JK said? He said, "But God is not in the temples." This is rebellion.

"God is not in the temples, so why bother? It is stupid." All revolutions are reactionary, reactions to a certain pattern. The deep down substratum is the same.

[The Heart Sutra, Ch.10, Sannyas: entering the stream]


"When we talk about settling the world's problems, we're barking up the wrong tree. The world is perfect. It's a mess. It has always been a mess. We're not going to change it. Our job is to straighten out our own lives."
(Joseph Campbell)

"Collectivism holds that the individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group (to "society," to the tribe, the state, the nation) and that the group may sacrifice him at it's own whim to it's own interests. The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by means of brute force - and statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism."
(Ayn Rand, 33, Racism)

The very highest is barely known.
Then comes that which people know and love.
Then that which is feared,
Then that which is despised.
Who does not trust enough will not be trusted.
When actions are performed without unnecessary speech,

People say, "We did it ourselves."

(Tao Te Ching, v. 17)
