"Down with any Elite" http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis
THE SCARISTS is a political discussion between two persons who live in the future.
They are not satisfied with society nor with the Western society from the twentieth
century. They look for new action methods to give people more influence on their life.
The past society showed signs of stagnation and petrifaction though it seemed that
governments acted reasonable and thoughtfully. Widespread misery proved however
that leaders were not solving any problems. The leading elite only tried to improve its
own position and blocked all further development of humanity.
The discussion concentrates on the possibility to get another kind of society in which
people can influence their life by using their unique and special characteristics.
Humans distinguish themselves from all other living beings by their intellectual
capacities, their creativity and their individuality.
A better society can be reached!

1. THE SCARIST
John Linegar was nervous and asked the most obvious question."What is a scarist?"
 
Hakima looked thoughtfully at her younger companion, moved about on her chair andsmoothed her short black hair with her hand.
 
"A scarist supports masspeople who want to have more power in order to be better armed against the power of the elite."
 
"What are masspeople?"
 
"We classify humanity in two categories, elitepeople and masspeople. Elitepeoplehave power, money and the possibility to give these privileges to their offspring.Masspeople have to live by the rules made by the elite. It is a very roughclassification but it contains a lot of truth. The origin of Scarism lies in the far past,more than a century ago. With the coming of the computer ordinary human beingsgot more and more entangled in modern technology and above all in the risingamount of information. We live already a long time in the Information Age but it is stilldifficult to penetrate in databanks. The available information is so overwhelming thatonly a few people can find the proverbial needle in the haystack. But some of thisinformation is used by the elite to dominate the life of masspeople to force them toact in a way they will never do of their free will.“At the end of the twentieth century leaders recognised the importance of informationabout the private life of individuals. The data were stored in huge databanks. Nobodyknew what was collected and nobody could even know if the stored information wascorrect. Only hackers who whirled free and unhampered through the streams of information penetrated sometimes into these bastions of secrecy. These cyber junkssurfed the Internet and navigated through the databanks. They played with thecomputer technology and developed into guides for the dangerous sea of digital onesand zeros. They were the predecessors of the scarists who still roam about in thecyber world.“A scarist knows how he …….. I always use he when I talk about scarists. That is aleft over from the time when women had even less to say than in the present era. Ascarist can look into computer systems and databanks and tell you where informationcan be found and how it can be used. We also give indications and even instructionswhich a client can transform in practical deeds. I am a reference book, a source of information, a thinking and talking manual about how someone can come closer tohis goal. But the inquiring person can only accomplish something when he is active.Scarism holds the view that humans are creative, autonomous and independent andtherefore can influence the course of events. Each human being possesses enoughpower to change to a great extent her of his life."
