Ending 2400 Years Of Lawyer-Like Dishonesties - A Universal Brief -
This universal brief intertwines history with facts to reveal the lawyer-like dishonesties gripping Western Civilization for over two millennia -- a grip that eventually strangles everyone on Earth. Until now, the closer one came to revealing those dishonesties, the closer that person came to personal obliteration. Thus, throughout history, no one has fully revealed lawyer-like dishonesties. Today, however, wide-scope accountability is spreading throughout non-intimidated cyberspace to reveal those dishonesties...and will continue to do so until such dishonesties disappear.
What are lawyer-like dishonesties? They are hidden frauds, automatic lies, and camouflaged crimes that over the centuries evolved irrational governments. Such governments let parasitical rulers and professional liars gain unearned livelihoods, power, and fame by draining individuals, businesses, and society of life and property. Today's examples of those wielding such harmful dishonesties include deep-pocket-seeking tort lawyers, thug-like union leaders, criminal-behaving bureaucrats, white-collar-hoax business quislings, power-seeking politicians, mind-destroying professors, mystic-promoting religious leaders -- and corrupt professional liars led by the President of the United States.
Lawyer-like dishonesties are the oldest, smoothest forms of mass deception and fraud. They quietly gut the lives of innocent people while surreptitiously draining values from society. ...Well-hidden, lawyer-like dishonesties comprise the archetype form of neocheating, which is the foundation of Earth's anti-civilization observed upon leaving Plato's cave:

Leaving Plato's Cave
Consider what happened to those few individuals in history who discovered that human life on Earth exists in an incurable anti-civilization that ultimately brings failure and death to everyone:
A Brahman Hindu (1000BC) on discovering the darkness of dishonesty in his world found "enlightenment" by abandoning everyone and "living alone in the forest";
Young Buddha (563-483BC) on discovering the incomprehensibility of dishonesty, poverty, aging, and death became a life-escaping icon who is replicated to this day;
Philosopher Socrates (470-399BC) on criticizing anti-civilization dishonesties was executed;
Secular Jesus (6BC-30AD) on revealing anti-civilization hypocrisies to the populace was crucified;
Shakespeare (1564-1616) through Hamlet handled anti-civilization evils by reducing them to "quintessence dust". Shakespeare through King Lear handled anti-civilization rulers by reducing them to nothingness. ...Shakespeare was the first to understand the dynamics behind Outcompete God and Government published four centuries later. Shakespeare, as does Outcompete, lets the anti-civilization churn in space -- alone, isolated, all blending into insignificance. Except for his "let's kill all the lawyers" statement in King Henry VI, Shakespeare had no need to pass public judgments. He just lets anti-civilization irrationalities churn until self-extinguished. Like St. Augustine (354-430), in his City of God, Shakespeare recognized the anti-civilization and evil as something nonexistent in the Civilization of the Universe;
Premier mathematician Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) escaped the contradictory anti-civilization by converting to a religious fanatic;
Sublime composer Robert Schumann (1810-1856) on discovering the anti-civilization sank into madness. The great opera-buffa composer Rossini (1792-1868) became mentally debilitated on discovering the futility of his freedom-seeking William Tell. ...Poet Lord Byron (1788-1824) along with the painters Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) and Paul Gauguin (1848-1906) suffered similar tragedies on identifying the incurable anti-civilization;
Henry Thoreau (1817-1862) escaped the anti-civilization by living alone at Walden Pond;
Non-force Tibetan monks escaped the force-backed anti-civilization by cloistering their lives in monasteries;
Novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881), after barely escaping death by a government firing squad, discovered the criminal-based authorities of an anti-civilization: His fictional Grand Inquisitor revealed the pinnacle of lawyer-like dishonesties and hidden criminalities;
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) consumed by the dark, no-escape heaviness of the anti-civilization went insane.
The great physicist Ludwig Boltzman[ 1 ] (1844-1906), on trying to isolate himself from dishonest criticisms and lawyer-like attacks, committed suicide;
Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) in his first four symphonies sought but never found the reward of overcoming the anti-civilization;
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), on recognizing the evil nature of government officials in an anti-civilization, composed Tosca with its famous torture and murder scenes;
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) saw the ugly picture of the anti-civilization stored in the subconscious that the conscious mind spends a lifetime rationalizing, denying, and repressing.
Wallace Hume Carothers (1896-1937), the brilliant DuPont chemist and inventor of nylon, committed suicide when he could no longer advance in Earth's anti-civilization;
Emma Goldman (1869-1940), rejecting the anticivilization without the knowledge of Neo-Tech, became a misguided anarchist writer and charismatic orator who stood heroically against war, religion, discrimination, lawyer-like dishonesties, and force-backed governments. She was censored, jailed, deported, and died alone in Toronto seeking Ibsen's Solveig and Wallace's Neo-Tech;
F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) artistically expressed and then vividly lived the ultimate smashup and inevitable death from seeking fulfillment of passion within the anti-civilization.[ 2 ]
Heaven's-Gate cult (1997) tried escaping the anti-civilization via mass suicide through the sound-good, lawyer-like deceptions of its neocheating leader, "Do".
While factually blind to the anti-civilization, various poets, philosophers, and writers from Robert Frost to Martin Heidegger to Charlotte Perkins Gilman to T. S. Eliot[ 3 ] emotionally expressed the artificially-constructed anti-civilization into which everyone is driven as a child. Gilman in The Yellow Wallpaper expressed how either "escape from" or "freedom in" the anti-civilization meant madness.
Lawyer-Like Dishonesties of Pericles
Caused Earth's Ultimate Disaster --
A Disaster that Spawned
An Incurable Anticivilization
Unresolvable contradictions within Earth's civilization arose from lawyer-like dishonesties 2400 years ago, starting on a grand scale with Pericles (495-429 B.C.). He discovered and exploited a powerful weapon of mass manipulation. That weapon was the newly instituted popular vote within a majority-ruled (tyranny of the majority) democracy:
Kings and tyrants ruled by force. But, force-ruled subjects usually despised such tyrants and did not support their parasitical actions. Thus, the tyrant's power and reach were restricted. Pericles discovered that a politician in a democracy also ruled by force. But, the majority cheered him onward into ever greater corruptions to expand his force-backed power and criminal reach. ...The politician ruled through the tyranny of the majority. He cared not what kind of criminal tyranny was demanded by the majority. He would do whatever that majority wanted, no matter how criminal or destructive, in order to accomplish his only end by any means. ...That only end is always to expand his force-backed power and criminal reach.
Upon manipulating majority support, Pericles became a tax-ravaging, monument builder for his own glory. To expand his power and "greatness", he built, for example, the budget-breaking, war-inspiring Acropolis. Aided by his vainglorious, jingoistic funeral oration in 431 B.C., Pericles deceptively argued before the voting jury of 40,000 citizens to "fall in love" with government. Why? So they would sacrifice their property and lives via force-backed taxation and aggressive wars for the glory of the state -- for the glory of Pericles.
Pericles incited the citizens through dishonestly induced sophisms and jury-swaying emotionalisms. He evoked a majority vote to agitate the unnecessary Peloponnesian war (431-404 B.C.) -- a bully war against the smaller, backward oligarchy, Sparta. Inflamed by Pericles' power-seeking bombast to spread the glory of Athens, the war became increasingly savage, violent, corrupting with wild killing of anyone for any reason, including fathers butchering their sons.
Thucydides' history of that war revealed the full impact of its corrupting brutality that sank the great Athenian civilization. Thucydides identified Pericles' profound destructiveness that harmfully affects mankind to this day. He concluded of Pericles: "Love of power, operating through greed and personal ambition caused those evils". Yet, today, who from ancient Greece do lawyers and politicians most quote and praise? That person is Pericles. He is second only to Plato as the hero among the parasitical-elite class.
From those Periclean dishonesties arose the parable-spinning, philosopher/politician Plato (428-348 B.C.). Lawyer-like Plato openly advocated lying for political expediency.[ 4 ] Then, through an elaborate web of closed-circle deductions, he evolved an anti-civilization designed to perpetuate the parasitical-elite class. Plato perfected the rationalizations needed to force the competitive value producer into supporting the parasitical elites who ply their deceptions for unearned power and glory. ...To this day, parasitical elites dishonestly survive by draining the value producers via Plato's force-backed "ideals".[ 5 ] Those mind-spun "ideals" led men and governments into subsequent wars, human impoverishments, and purposeful destructions.
Now, sweep the Pericles/Plato lawyer-like dishonesties across history. Start with the basically honest, "God-is-Dead" philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). He saved his greatest invective against Christianity with his "Look what Christianity did to Pascal" accusation. But, what happened to Pascal was caused not by Christianity, but by the Pericles/Plato-formed anti-civilization.
In 1653, Pascal discovered that an incurably dishonest anti-civilization dominated Earth. That great mathematician and conceiver of the computer (inventor of the first digital calculator and for whom the 20th-century computer programming language "Pascal" was named) then experienced his "Night of Fire". He immediately converted his life to that of "Jesus on the Cross".
Nietzsche did not possess Pascal's knowledge that everyone on Earth was trapped in an anti-civilization controlled by lawyer-like dishonesties originating from criminal/war-like heroes of ancient Greece.[ 6 ]
Pascal saw across history the admiration bestowed upon civilization-destroying Pericles. Pascal saw the unjust dishonesties of a smooth-talking, civilization killer being honored with the "Golden Age of Pericles" signature. Pascal saw many of the most destructive people in history held in high esteem throughout the generations. He saw in everyone massive, non-resolvable contradictions -- contradictions between man's magnificent intelligence and value production versus man's crushing stupidities and murderous destructions. His masterwork, Pensées (translated as "Thoughts"), vividly described the seemingly incurable contradictions of good and evil within everyone on Earth.
The most-read author of 18th-century Europe was Pierre Bayle (1647-1706). He underscored Pascal's conclusion by identifying the extreme contradictions in the scriptures. Pointing to the lying-deceiver, murderous-criminal King David as being one of "God's chosen few", Bayle asserted that one must not try to understand the scriptures or this world by reason or logic. Instead, he believed that one must proceed on faith alone to find resolution and peace in a criminally irrational anti-civilization.
Harm every Person and Value
Pascal saw how those skilled with lawyer-like dishonesties parasitically drain the magnificent accomplishments of value producers who got little or no mention, honors, or credit throughout anti-civilization history. Pascal recognized that most in Earth's anti-civilization history dubbed as a Great, a Sun King[ 7 ], or a Golden-Age icon were criminal mass killers -- destroyers of what others had striven to produce for the benefit of others and society. ...Discovering that such injustices and contradictions were the essence of Earth's civilization was more than Pascal could bear. Trapped in an anti-civilization, he had no choice but to exit by leaping into an unreal world of faith.
Pascal abandoned rational, worldly pursuits, including his brilliant pursuits of mathematics, engineering, and physics. He turned to the Christian faith with "Jesus on the Cross" as his exemplar. ...Lacking the knowledge of Neo-Tech and the Civilization of the Universe, Pascal's decision to dump the anti-civilization for an imaginary world of Christ becomes comprehendible.
Planet Earth Missed its Chance 2300 Years Ago
If Pericles had not implemented lawyer-like dishonesties, the corruptions of the Peloponnesian Wars would not have occurred, Socrates would not have been executed, Plato would not have spun the foundation for an anti-civilization -- and that soaring Athenian civilization boosted by Aristotle may have thrived to this day in becoming part of the eternal Civilization of the Universe.
Planet Earth Gets another Chance Today
Ending Lawyer-Like Dishonesties
will end today's irrational
and bring forth the rational
Civilization of the Universe
Today, Pascal and Bayle would have had another choice to exit the anti-civilization. They would have had the wide-scope accounting and fully integrated honesty of Neo-Tech to discover the eternally consistent, rational Civilization of the Universe (C of U). In the C of U, contradictions among men and societies are resolved as the anti-civilization vanishes through wide-scope accountability and fully integrated honesty -- through Neo-Tech -- through freely benevolent business dynamics. ...In seeking proof for the Civilization of the Universe, odds-maker Pascal might have reformulated his famous incitement to proof of God as follows:
Accept the Civilization of the Universe: If the C of U is real, you gain everything for eternity. If it is not real, you lose nothing and still gain a better life.
Reject the Civilization of the Universe: If the C of U is not real, you gain nothing. If it is real, you lose everything for eternity.
ORIGINS OF THE ANTICIVILIZATION
The Caste System
In Plato's parasitical political system, the supreme souls of gold (the parasitical elites) are supported through force-backed "laws" foisted upon the lowly souls of bronze and iron (the value producers). But, centuries before Plato, parasitical elites established the caste system in India (Verna categories, 1000 B.C.). That system established the parasitical elites as the top caste to be supported by the lowest caste -- the value producers -- as shown below:
The Parasitical Elites
Top: Brahman -- the philosopher/priest caste filled with sattva: wisdom and goodness.
The Force-Backed Implementers of Parasitism
Middle: Kshatriya -- the political/military caste filled with rajas: courage and energy.
Their Sacrificial Servants -- The Value Producers
(bronze and iron souls)
Low: Vaishya -- the commercial/agriculture caste filled with tamas: desire and appetite.
ORIGINS OF ENDING THE ANTICIVILIZATION
Honest, Objective Natural Law
Dishonest, Subjective Political-Agenda Law
In Sophocles' (495-406 B.C.) play Antigone, the daughter of Oedipus Rex makes history's first principled stand (which led to her execution) on obeying eternally natural, objective laws over arbitrarily unnatural, political-agenda "law". ...Valid, objective laws consistent throughout the Universe negate force-backed, political-agenda "laws" arbitrarily conjured up on Earth through lawyer-like dishonesties.
Poverty via Government/Religion
Prosperity via Neo-Tech/Business
Choose the poverty of criminality, death, suicide, madness, escapism, and faith via God and Government...or choose the prosperity of wide-scope accountability and fully integrated honesty via Neo-Tech and business. The choice seems obvious. Yet, without cyberspace, that choice can be difficult. For some, perhaps Pascal's proposition, revised for Neo-Tech, needs evoking. In any case, once one cuts the chains of dishonesty, he or she can leave the dark illusions of Plato's cave for the freedom light of cyberspace. That person, through Neo-Tech, can then see the blackness of an anti-civilization, not just its shadows, gripping planet Earth. That same person will finally glimpse the new colors from the Civilization of the Universe approaching Earth, networking throughout cyberspace.
On leaving Plato's cave, one cannot return to its darkness, lest that person be consumed by its demons as were Socrates, Pascal, Schumann, van Gogh, Boltzman, and Carothers. Instead, one must remain in the light of honesty to sublimate his or her life into performing naturally -- into performing with wide-scope accountability and fully integrated honesty. ...Such performance advances the conscious mind into a Neothink mind for harvesting limitless riches and eternal happiness from the Fifth Dimension -- from the Civilization of the Universe.
Today, no one needs to escape the anti-civilization or even be harmed by it. With wide-scope accounting and fully integrated honesty – Neo-Tech -- one can vanish lawyer-like dishonesties. Indeed, nothing except global destruction can stop Neo-Tech from sublimating the criminal-ruled anti-civilization into cyberspace -- into the self-ruled Civilization of the Universe. ...Fully integrated honesty will sublimate the world into a prosperous future of self-responsibility. Populations will flourish from Neo-Tech in cyberspace without requiring a single tax dollar or a single political vote.
[ 1 ] Boltzman discovered one of the four physical constants of the Universe -- Newton, Planck, and Einstein discovered the other three. Equally important, Boltzman was the first to unify the difference between the time-symmetric laws of physics (deterministic) with the asymmetric laws of thermodynamics (arrow-of-time probabilistic). Boltzman's radical unification step was crucial for the ongoing process of validating Neo-Tech physics. By obeying the laws of physics, Neothink minds control the Universe through probabilistic thermodynamics and quantum mechanics. (See the document Neotech Physics on www.neo-tech.com) ...Isolated beyond the anti-civilization by his discoveries, the heavily criticized Ludwig Boltzman tragically committed suicide.
[ 2 ] F. Scott Fitzgerald, the 1920s jazz “poet” of money and romance, showed both in his novel The Great Gatsby and in his personal life with the dazzling Zelda Sayre how romantic desire can shape and drive lives. Perhaps every man with a lost love has some J. Gatsby within him. Other writer’s who captured the smashup when people drive to fulfill passionate aspirations in the anti-civilization include Charles Dickens (1812-1870) in his Great Expectations and Gustave Flaubert (1821-1870) in his Madame Bovary.
[ 3 ] T. S. Eliot recognized that the anti-civilization is composed of disintegrated fragments. He tried to gather those fragments in a futile attempt to assemble them into a unified, lasting value. He tried and largely failed at that attempt in his magnum opus, The Waste Land.
[ 4 ] As quoted from Plato's Republic, 390 B.C.: "The rulers of the state are the only ones who should have the privilege of lying, either at home or abroad; they may be allowed to lie for the good of the state."
[ 5 ] Examine Niccolò Machiavelli's (1469-1527) history-created masterwork, The Prince. It is about pragmatic political power. Machiavelli's work has the merit of being honest realpolitik in an anti-civilization. Then examine Plato's theory-created masterwork, The Republic. It is about elitist politics and forced government "education". Plato's work delivers a-priori deceptions brilliantly woven throughout a system of mind-spun "ideals". Machiavelli was honestly up front. Plato was deceptively sub rosa. ...Tragically, those dishonest "ideals" of Plato were only partially countered -- with little success -- by the honest, reality-bound works of Aristotle.
Through a Plato-created anti-civilization, the irrational, anti-property philosophies of a mawkish Rousseau or an envy-ridden Marx rise to wreak slaughter and destruction upon entire populations. Indeed, mass-murderers Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot can flourish only within Plato's anti-civilization. For, in an anti-civilization, any well-spun rationalization combined with well-hidden, lawyer-like dishonesties can succeed until its victims are devoured. Even Freud's scientific-sounding pessimism -- his mind-spun system of the id, ego, and superego -- flows prestigiously and usefully throughout the anti-civilization.
In an anti-civilization, envy-driven socialism/fascism and its criminal/parasitical rulers reign through violation of individual rights and force-backed usurpations of private property. In today's anti-civilization, intolerance-driven religion and political-correct statism dominate. In an anti-civilization, a Hitler intentionally promoting fascist violence and a Gandhi unintentionally promoting socialist poverty can succeed simultaneously. ...Irrational schemes comprising lawyer-like dishonesties and mind-spun "realities" can succeed, no matter how evil or destructive, in an anti-civilization. By contrast, only rational, honest business practices linked to objective reality can succeed in the Civilization of the Universe.
[ 6 ] Nietzsche greatly admired both the real and fictional criminal/war-like heroes of ancient Greece, such as Achilles, Odysseus, Pericles, Alcibiades, Alexander the Great...and throughout history from Genghis Khan to Napoleon. Moreover, Nietzsche argued quite validly for his heroes from the anti-civilization perspective. He argued Hegel's dialectical view that wars build character and strength among victorious survivors who then carry on with greater achievements for society. Note, in this century, for example, the character building within the millions of soldiers who returned as victors from action in World War II. Yet, consider what those same individuals and societies, along with those who were killed or destroyed by that war, might have accomplished within a high-pitched, exciting, freely competitive civilization (e.g., within a Silicon-Valley/high-tech-type competitiveness). And, finally consider what everyone might have accomplished within the business-driven, criminal-free/war-free Civilization of the Universe. ...Those happy, free individuals would have performed with incalculably greater character and accomplishment than anyone in the anti-civilization under any circumstances.
Hitler was a Pericles-like orator whose theme was altruistic sacrifice both to the state and to mankind. Drawing from Hegel and Nietzsche, the will-to-power Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, "Mankind has grown great in eternal struggle. Only in eternal peace that it perishes." Was Hitler factual? Yes. For, in the anti-civilization, that struggle for greatness does indeed succeed through collectivist power via force and violence. In the Civilization of the Universe, however, that struggle for greatness succeeds only through individual benevolence via competitive value production for others and society.
[ 7 ] The famous Sun King, Louis XIV of France, was in power slightly after Pascal’s time.
