These days gold-hoarding Midas hangs out around 8 Gemini so I’m looking at Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol book, ‘An Astrological Mandala’ for details on our “Second Gilded Age” of Robber Baron Midasses, the obscenely wealthy class which has imposed upon those underneath them on the golden ladder of life the income inequality in America which now widens to Soup Line dimensions.
PBS’s ‘Bill Moyers’ Journal’ yesterday addressed these issues and called it an idee fixe which the power elite cling to so tightly (tightwads) concerning the ‘free’ market system which they can’t seem to think their way out of.
Why should they when their amassing of wealth stokes a rosy illusion of liberation from the collective masses–a heady motive for imagining themselves above the rabble!
Wasn’t it Einstein who said you can’t think your way out of a problem with the same thinking that created the problem? But these greedy, power hungry culprits don’t want a way out and they prefer the rest of us simmering in the cauldron, thanks. And dissolving of boundaries–economic, national, social–is part of their much-touted one-world government intrigues where their dreams of world domination thrive.
Barack Obama’s mentions of America’s ongoing class warfare don’t make it happen–the power elite do, then they cringe when someone points it out! As well they should. For glorified ’brethren’ they sure don’t care at all for their fellow man.
Yet Some People the world over are trying to better their positions bwo labor unions…
‘ “8Gem”…”Aroused Strikers Surround A Factory”…keynote: The disruptive power of the ambitious mind upon the organic wholeness of human relationship.
The first stage dealt with oil (’6Gem’: “Workmen Drilling for Oil”…keynote: The avidity for knowledge which ensures wealth and power…AMBITION.) Now we see in this new symbol a pictorial indication of what the use of this intellect-generated energy inevitably leads to: industrial unrest and violence.
As man manages to rape the earth in order to demonstrate his power and intensify his pleasures and his sense of proud mastery, conflicts and disruptive processes are inevitably initiated. The type of power generated by the analytical intellectual faculties is essentially disruptive; it is based on the destruction of matter, and invites egocentric hoarding and spoliation–and, in general, privileges of one kind or another.
This leads to a REVOLT AGAINST PRIVILEGES.’ #
Old King Midas’ egocentric hoarding will get the best of him one day–if not on this earth, then on the coming New and Improved version because threading a needle with a rich camel will be an impossibility in the sweet bye’n'bye!
~:~ note: you may wish to see my Pages list for the Reaganomics Eclipse if you’ve hithertofore missed the trickle down nonsense. ‘Trickle down’/voodoo economics only works when the corporate elite plow some of their billion-dollar breaks from the US taxpayers BACK into the economy they skimmed it from.
Instead, recent years have brought downsizing, outsourcing, and the continued selling out of America along with apt Capitol Hill enabling…we see their NWO plans in action similar to Hitler’s amassing of wealth in the 30s–and the economic hourglass tilts again in the elite’s favor toward totalitarian imperialism. #
