The Steel Sheets Of Lower Level Mental Performance

The typical citizen drops down to a lower level of mental performance as soon as he enters the political field. He argues and analyzes in a way which he would readily recognize as infantile within the sphere of his real interests.”

Joseph A. Schumpeter, the 20th century, Austrian-born, political economist, makes the obvious more obvious. Professor Schumpeter is telling us why we experience the political earthquakes that have most people in a state of anger, frustration, and disbelief. We watch as good old devious behavior tries to duplicate itself.

There’s no doubt we are at turning point in our Capitalistic road. We are heading to that Roman graveyard where the slaves of Gaul and common men and women wake up and ask us why we didn’t learn something from their Roman Empire reality. The greed, revenge, murder, and all the other bells and whistles of being a Roman citizen or being a wealthy senator, or congressman as well as some other self-serving government official are alive and well in the Capitalistic system.

And not only that. The fall of the Roman Empire was due in part to the mismanagement, misguidance, manipulation, and the belief that being part of the Roman Empire was the only social, religious, and political game in existence. Those choices continue to present themselves to us for no other reason than to absorb the lesson this time around.

Invisible steel sheets of any mind-altering government cover the thoughts of its people. The privileged and the noble one percent was the only percent that had a say in anything social, religious or political during the days of Roman slaves. The awareness performance of the time for a slave was to get sick and meet the gods or get sicker from the stench of the breaking wind of the political class.

Just like the Romans we give in to a modern form of slavery that produces a lot of thunder but no rain. We square off, face to face, and fight to the social death just to see our party of choice catapult their Roman-cloned senators and congressmen into the opportunity to sink to a lower level of mental performance.

And here’s the funny thing. We are the ones who want to physically feel this gender egocentric play in this battle-worn saga of Capitalism play out. We are ones who chose this reality to make an impact. And we make our physical marks in unique and undeniable ways. Just like the Roman slaves we have the choice to fight to the death or suffer in this political catacomb.

But we could find a way to understand that infantile behavior and political dominance is genetic. We have a chance to change the nature of the cells in those genes by our choices.
