"but is there an alternative to rule by-the-rich or by-the-few?"
Pasted from /larrydunbar.newsvine.com/_news/2009/02/07/2406683-the-grid>
2. control something
transitive verb to subject something to control, or restrain something.
The rich or the few have little control over anything except the velocity of their own movement. They control the masses as the sun controls the earth. The sun doesn't control the earth; it commands the earth to move and the earth falls into the sun. However, the earth is controlled by the velocity of its movement. As the command is obeyed the velocity gives the earth a controlled measured move around the sun. In other words, the earth doesn't move into the sun as commanded; its velocity controls the outcome of the command.
The sun pulls the earth towards itself by the command of its potential, but has no control over the direction of the velocity of the earth. The sun has no force component in the direction of velocity. It is the earth's own velocity that controls the earth.
Add more velocity to the earth and the earth looses the sun's orbit and moves in a straight line until it, perhaps, finds another potential.
Less velocity and it heeds the force commanding it and obeys the sun's command. Displacement, or the velocity of displacement, does not depend on force, it only depends on having a place to move to and from. Velocity is just a change in distance over a change in time, past to future. For the sun to have control over the earth it would need to have command over the past and future areas of displacement of the earth. This is real control, the command of ones past and future; it is the control of the rich and the few.
The rich and the few don't need to actually control the past and future, they only need to control the image of the potential that the past or future may, or may not, have represented. A potential has its own force and comes with the possibility that the potential does or does not exist. There is just as much force created with either possibilities. These forces are called positive or negative charge. A positive charge is a potential that doesn't exist or the differential between existing and not existing. The past or future that did or did not exist creates a power force. The image that the rich and few would use to control could be one of either the past or future that did or did not exist.
The image of the past and future is what gives the force of wealth's potential the ability to control the many. The image does for the rich and the few, what nothing could do for the sun, give it a force component in the direction of velocity.
That is not to say that the velocity of the many could not be in the same direction as the force of the wealth, it is just that the few and the many don't want the direction of the many to be towards wealth. They need to circle wealth, not be a part of wealth. In other words, the rich and the few need the masses to be circling wealth's potential, but never landing. They need the velocity of the masses to be enough to keep them in orbit, but never land. They need the velocity to be low enough that they don't move in a straight line away from the rich and the few. The rich and the few need the many to keep orbiting in order for the wealth to become the center of gravity for the many. This gives the wealthy a displacement equal to the sum of the many and the few, while isolating the orientation of the wealthy at the center, with a force pulling everything towards the center. It is then that the resources of the many can be pulled towards the center of gravity to maintain the wealth of the rich and few.
The rich and the few are of the displacement that includes the many whose internal force is pointed at the wealth of the few, but whose velocity is pointing away from the wealth. The rich and the few orient themselves in the domain of physics. It is to their advantage, as a force at the center of the displacement, to enforce conformity within the domain of structure. This leaves the other domains of a displacement, logic and ethics, open to the generation of diversity. This diversity can go on as long as it does not interfere with the conformity of structure of the displacement.
Logic is the domain of the command and control of a displacement. In the displacement of the rich and the few it is ok to have diversity within this domain. That is why communism , whose orientation is inside the domain of logic, is not really a problem for the rich and the few. All communism needs to do is allow diversity in the structure of its displacement and allow the many to keep orbiting the center. In China this is not a problem. The logic of the Chinese is for the resources to go towards the center and then be benevolently given to those who need resources.
Ethics is the internal force of a displacement. The rich and the few can allow diversity to be generated in this domain, as long as it doesn't destroy the structure of the displacement. For diversity to take place in ethics, the structure of the displacement needs to be resilient. The structure needs to grow and shrink with the changing forces between the people of the displacement. The structure of the few, with the orbiting masses, is a very flexible structure. While the masses must maintain their velocity, the structure can "leap" in or out of different orbits to allow for change in the internal force of the displacement. This resiliency adds great advantage to the displacements containing communism or democratic logic. Both are able to take advantage of the structure of the wealthy and the few, while maintain the logic of either.
With the rich and the few occupying different domains in the displacements of either communism or democracy it is not easy to see how communism has taken over in America, but I believe we can assume, to some extent, that it has. It is perhaps because neither the conservatives nor liberals are really advocating communism that we forgot about the wealthy. We just assumed that what they wanted was capitalism and we assumed that meant democracy. Capitalism is also oriented to the domain of physics and joins the wealthy in the free-market, if you take-out the "free" part.
Of course communism is only the logic that has penetrated the ethics and structure of our displacement. It will be taken up by the conservatives and liberals, as the resources from the logic is divided among them. It will never be given a name, because it doesn't need one, for the logic to survive. However, it will be given other names such as socialism and both the conservatives and the liberals will accuse the other of being one. Much of the destruction that this new logic is causing, as it is entering our nation is coming to light. The image is becoming clear, even I can see it, ha!
This new logic is not about replacing that which we have already, it needs to destroy the old logic that we the people, under God, and indivisible use to define the orientation of our displacement. So far the new logic is far ahead in this war of image.
The image of our reality is far from what is real. We are fighting a war in Iraq that we may have already lost; we are fighting a depression that we are probably already in. The first command of 5GW (Fifth Generation Warfare) is to change the image. We are in a 5GW. We no longer see the image of our convergent mind. The divergent mind sees things as they are; the convergent mind sees things as they really are. We are seeing with our divergent minds.
