‘‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment forcrime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall existwithin the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.’’-The constitution of the United States, amendment 13, ratified1865-Dec-6‘‘the state of subjection to another that constitutes or resembles slaveryor serfdom [...] it implies in general lack of liberty to do as one pleases,specifically lack of freedom to determine one’s course of action andconditions of living’’-definition of ‘‘servitude’’, from Webster’s dictionary‘‘1: the system of political organization prevailing in Europe from the9th to about the 15th centuries having as its basis the relation of lord tovassal with all land held in fee and as chief characteristics homage, theservice of tenants under arms and in court, wardship, and forfeiture 2:any of various political or social systems similar to medievalfeudalism’’-definition of ‘‘feudalism’’, from Webster’s dictionary

Preamble
‘‘We have now sunk to a depth at whichrestatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.’’-George OrwellThis document articulates the nature of the modern western establishment, its methods and goals, andtheir final consequences.The modern western establishment is a vast and cryptic cult that aggressively infiltrates and consolidatespositions of social influence and control throughout western civilization, with ambitions that encompassthe entire world. It is a functionalistic hierarchy. The greater one’s proximity to and involvement withthe establishment, and the higher that proximal portion of the establishment isin the hierarchy, the more thorough and insistent is the enforcement of establishment codes of conduct (many of which are fluid and unwritten).The term ‘‘hierarchy’’ etymologically means ‘‘sacred rule’’, but has come todenote any pyramid-like acyclic network arrangement. The root is instructive,however: theistic religions are power structures in which adherents pledgeobedience to an illusory god or gods, but (inevitably) obey the commandmentsof men who duck accountability by dint of their god ruse. For comparison, theruse by which the modern establishment ducks accountability is thecommittee, and the members of these committees believe they wield god-likepowers to command humanity and define right and wrong. A keycommonality is a pathological inability to recognize that the laws of nature areconstant.The establishment has no master plan. Components of the establishmentperiodically attempt to promulgate such plans, but this is inherentlyineffective.The preeminent establishment commandment is that one not acknowledge or articulate the broad natureof the establishment, or its methods and goals. Members of the establishment act in a manner informedby covert knowledge of methods and goals, but this knowledge is evident only to those who alreadypossess it. The establishment introduces many of its inductees to the policy of tight lips through sharedrituals of a humiliating and often pathologically sexual character (in college fraternities, and historically,in brotherhoods such as the Freemasons) that few participants would deign to discuss, even with thosewho have already undergone them, except by brief cryptic reference.The establishment facilitates the ascent of those in whom they recognize covert knowledge and acongenial
modus operandi
, endowing a rising balance of social capital for such people unless theybetray the establishment. This rewards and fosters loyalty.The higher one’s position in the hierarchy, the broader is the range of methods and goals one is
‘‘Those who formally ruletake their signals andcommands not from theelectorate as a body, butfrom a small group of men(plus a few women). Thisgroup will be called theEstablishment. It existseven though that existenceis stoutly denied. It is oneof the secrets of theAmerican social order. [...]A second secret is the factthat the existence of theEstablishment -- the rulingclass -- is not supposed tobe discussed.’’-Arthur S. Miller, GeorgeWashington Universitylaw professor (deceased)
