The Interests of Babylon

It is in the interests of Babylon to produce messed up people because they are easier to manipulate and because they make voracious consumers.

The most efficient way to produce messed up people is to undermine the family unit, which is most efficiently done by undermining the authority of the parents, which is most efficiently done by undermining trust and respect.

The children will develop a host of mental health problems, which the parents will struggle to cope with, and which a variety of professional state-sanctioned educational, therapeutic and psychiatric bodies will be called upon to help with, in order to save them from themselves.

As they grow up, they will become increasingly aligned with and emotionally dependent on the state, in the guise of a rolling platoon of professional parental figures. They will also depend on the state to protect them against the hostility of people who don’t accept their neurodiverse state-sanctioned condition.

When they have children of their own, they will be even more likely to cede parental control to the wise and professional state-sanctioned educational, therapeutic and psychiatric bodies than their parents were.

Eventually, after several generations, once the loss of authority of parents is complete, children will be given directly into the professional care of the state, much as they are in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

All their emotional and psychological needs will be met through consumption of goods and services, in other words, shopping, entertainment, dating agencies, social media, medication and therapy. However, their needs will never be fully met, because this endless consumerism is a poor substitute for genuine human love.

And so it goes…
