The Hypocrisy of Popular Disgust


The “News and Information” media of popular culture do
not often invite the public to the exercise of
discriminating intelligence. On the contrary, the popular
media thrive on hype, propagandized states of emotion and
mind, and nondiscriminating responses to every kind of
advertised goods, persuasions, and results.

Until the media that inform the masses of humanity begin
to invite the individual to exercise discriminating
intelligence in all matters, and until human beings in
general become founded in the higher Wisdom-Culture and the
intimate politics of authentic human existence, there can be
no true wondering about the madness we inherit in the daily

Indeed, the hypocritical media reaction of surprise (and
sometimes disgust) in the face of all the kinds of
fascinating and bizarre news in the world is even the
product of a kind of competitive rivalry. The Cult of the
News would be senior and superior to any phenomenon about
which it reports. (From the popular point of view, the
“Messiah,” or the “Messenger” is always senior to the
Message.) Everyone in the world is in the cult game,
including the media the themselves. Everyone wishes to be
glamorous and right and the center of attention.

The News is one of the principal forms of modern popular
entertainment. The messenger is glamorized by the superior
entertainment value of every kind of message. Therefore, the
News exploits the vulgarity of subhuman events and
bastardizes the achievements of superior men and women. Then
why should there be any wondering if immature people follow
false cults, false leaders, false ideologies, and
destructive causes? To be enthusiastic and also false is the
hypocritical core of the “American Way.” Indeed, Western
culture as a whole was founded on religious lies, political
exploitation, and manipulative propaganda of every kind. And
these means are yet to be overcome.

The popular media that “inform” and ultimately control
the worlds populations are not simply “guardians of human
rights and all the truth,” even though they may wish to be
known as such. Rather, they are also propaganda instruments
for the more or less “official” Cult of Everyman, or the
Cult of Things As They Can Seem to Be. As nondiscriminating
propaganda instruments, popular media are themselves among
the primary instruments that actively work against the
freedom of Man to transcend mob rule and to create an
intimate culture in which the unofficial, evolutionary, and
transcendental Wisdom that has yet found dominion only at
the fringes of society is allowed to be the center of human
existence and the dominant influence on human action.

We must all awaken from the sleep of Wisdom. We must be
self-critical, and we must discriminate among all the
superficial doctrines that surround us and that arise within
us. We must see the childish tendency in “Everyman” to be
Parented by dominant, powerful, and official influences.
Likewise, we must understand the merely destructive
adolescent reaction of despair and clinging to the
hopefulness of less popular illusions that flatter the mind
and give us reasons to avoid the call to compassion and

The mass of humanity is the child of the Parent-State and
all of the fake mind of popular culture. We all lie in wait
for “official” permission to believe and know and feel and
act. We await the theatrical cues that govern universal
responses. We seek permission to laugh, the authority to be
happy, the right to Divinity and the Fullness of Life.
Instead, we must hear the Truth and awaken to the timely
demand of our Manhood.
