The Century of the Self Part 1

January 17, 2008

The best documentary ever!! A masterpiece from BBC4 that shows the reality of the psychology of modern man!! To get a good idea of how and why we are consuming at an uncontrolable rate and plundering the planet we must first see how that frame of mind came about. As we know all creatures on the planet seem to find some sort of equilibrium however humans have far surpassed virus and are looking to literally tear holes in the world just to satisfy greed.

This is surely not natural, and after watching this very informative documentary it becomes very apparent that this was actually something someone came up with and put into action. Please do not lose focus and think as this happened in the 1920’s it is no longer relevant now. This was done to our great grandparents, who taught our grandparents, who taught our parents who taught us hence our current hyper real over indulgent and wasteful consumer actions and lifestyles.

Five MIT students under the team name BioVolt have created a $2 gadget that uses biomass to generate electricity. The output of the device isn’t particularly significant — six months to charge your cell means you shouldn’t throw away that charger just yet — but the low cost of the components, the availability of “biomass,” and the capability…

“I do not speak to the weak: they want to obey and generally lapse into slavery quickly. In the face of merciless nature, let us still feel ourselves as merciless nature! But I have found strength where one does not look for it: in simple, mild, and pleasant people, without the least desire to rule—and, conversely, the desire to rule has often appeared to me a sign of inward weakness: they fear their own slave soul and shroud it in a royal cloak (in the end, they still become the slaves of their followers, their fame, etc.) The powerful natures dominate, it is a necessity, they need not lift one finger. Even if, during their lifetime, they bury themselves in a garden house!”

Friedrich Nietzsche, Nachlass

 A quote from Nietzsche I found rather topical, it seem there is growing weakness fuelled by a diet of physical appearance and fear of the natural which has enslaved the minds of many. If we were all to find our inner strength and peace we would discover the truer meaning behind Nietzsche concept of the will to power. Self empowerment rather than authoritative empowerment because those using these methods are but hiding their own fear of weakness. One
