How The Elites Are Using “Divide And Rule” To Control Us
Meanwhile, Bello in the north, Nnamdi in the east, Akintola in the West are all struggling to put food on the table, and Mary and Halima are desperate for medication for their new born babies. While Hon. Adamu, Tunde & Obi enjoy fancy dinner parties together, world class education for their children and constant global vacation tours with their families. Yet nothing changes, albeit the disparity seems to get worse.
Who is to blame?
When the people are discontent and angry from being powerless and dispossessed, the pressure will mount and it won’t go anywhere. The people want to vent out their frustrations. The elites know that responding directly with repression only inspires greater desire to rise up, so instead of fighting it, they prefer to re-channel that pent up energy elsewhere.
Back in 19th century, Karl Marx claimed that religion and nationalism was being used to distract the masses from the fact that they were being oppressed under capitalism. Mere distractions to keep the masses from undermining the power of the elites.
The goal of the elites is simple: divide the masses and let them fight each other so that they will never come together to topple those in power and replace them with worthy individuals. Meanwhile, they themselves focus on expanding their own wealth and continue to implement institutional control to further their plans.
The worst case scenario the elites want to avoid is to have the common people unite as one, economically, so they must do everything they can to fragment them by creating as many divisions as possible.
Their modus operandi is this:
1) Use hot-button issues to stir up controversy (something that doesn’t affect them like, race & tribal issues, religious sentiments, and all other politically correct nonsense).
2) Have one group either get outraged or do something that will provoke a reaction from the other.
3) Let the people vent out their anger onto each other and get at each other’s throats.
4) When the issue fades away, foment a new controversy to repeat the whole process.
By cycling through them over and over again, the elites are able to maintain the status quo and keep the people from uniting against them.
Thus, we have our current situation where the masses are divided with different group rivalries, Islam against Christianity, North against South, Hausa, Yoruba Igbos inter-tensions, and so on, but no more economic reforms.
As long as some of us continue berating others as bigots who are degenerates, socialist slackers who just want freebies from a nanny government, nothing will change.
As long as the different sides see each other as enemies who are stupid and ignorant, and getting in the way of creating a decent society, the people will remain divided.
A Couple More Points To Consider
It is crucial to remember that although the main goal of the system is to maintain divide and rule, it is not the end of it. The elites have far more sinister aims. By raising hell in societies through demographic conflicts and terrorism, the elites are nurturing total control.
Letting chaos and violence run its course so that the people from opposing camps will not join together in their disapproval.
No matter their differences, when the people get terrified of savagery and disorder, they’ll welcome the state to intervene in the name of security.
While many people seem to be concerned about bigotry, violence and terrorism, it seems those are just tools used by the elites to justify a totalitarian state.
On one hand, we are playing into the hands of elites by raging against social justice instead of trying to stop the politicians, bankers, mega-corporations, and the governments from undermining our existence.
All the drama of outrage and counter-outrage is silly when the elites are snickering as their world is shining bright.
So, does this mean we should ally with those who scorn us? Or should we continue playing the elite’s games and bicker?
Whatever we choose to do, it is crucial for us to focus our battles and not get trolled into petty issues.
We should always keep in mind that it is always those at the top who are the true enemies.
