The Nothingness Drain
Avoidance of integrated thinking eventually leads to workers dependent on white-collar-hoax managements. Thus, in turn, they become dependent on force-backed government regulations to protect their livelihoods. And that leads to the Nothingness Drain. The Nothingness Drain occurs whenever large amounts of resources are spent on an activity made to appear important, but in reality that activity produces no net values. On closer examination, the purpose of such deceptive activity is to provide bogus jobs and public admiration to uncompetitive value usurpers.
The epitome of the Nothingness Drain is exemplified by government and the media. The media, armed with the latest, highly sophisticated technology, descend upon politicians in a great flurry of activity. The politicians, in order to appear important, are scurrying about devising a maze of laws and regulations in the name of some trendy cause to be forced upon productive individuals. But, for what gain? The bottom line is that absolutely zero net values are produced by that great flurry of activity. In fact, such unproductive, uncompetitive political and media activity serves only to devour vast amounts of producers' time, energy, and capital.
One sees the Nothingness Drain everywhere. In fact, the Nothingness Drain is so pervasive that it can appear as though there is a conspiracy among diabolical masterminds orchestrating vast Nothingness-Drain empires. But that is not so. There is not a masterminded "external authority" conspiracy out there. People just follow the path of least resistance. They do not break into competitive, integrated thinking. Thus, they remain dependent on "external authorities" and their self-perpetuating Nothingness-Drain empires.
Ever since the Greek philosopher Aristotle, fundamental and valid identifications have repeatedly been made about the irrationality and destructiveness of force-backed government -- of force-backed "external authority". But to no avail. The institutions of force have always prevailed. Why? Because their support structure -- personal mysticism (avoidance of integrated thinking) in millions of people seeking the path of least resistance -- has prevailed. Indeed, even the valid philosophical/political systems such as Objectivism, Libertarianism, Voluntarism focus too much attention on the evils of "external authority". For those "external authorities" are not even real. They produce nothing. They are just nothingness that result from ordinary people taking the path of least resistance through life. The real nemesis of mankind is the avoidance of integrated thinking. The avoidance of integrated thinking keeps the individual dependent on "external authority".
Objectivists, Libertarians, Voluntarists validly identify the hoax of "external authority" and the supremacy of the individual but never succeed in collapsing external authority. Why? They themselves, with only a few exceptions, do not exert competitive, money-making, integrated thinking in their careers. Thus, in the end, their livelihoods are dependent on others. They, too, are ultimately dependent on an external authority. Objectivists, Libertarians, Voluntarists will never be able to eliminate the same "external authority" institutions they denounce. Without competitive, business-like integrated thinking, no person or group can ever collapse the structure of "external authority" or any form of institutionalized mysticism.
But, when a person starts integrated thinking in his career, he never again depends on others to maintain a livelihood. That independent thinker, by his very nature, is Laissez Faire, leave-me-alone oriented. Such integrated thinkers naturally do not support Nothingness Drains or "external authorities". By their very nature, they dislike and subvert white-collar hoaxes, "external authority", and all other Nothingness Drains.
Regardless of how clearly, how effectively Objectivist, Libertarian, or Voluntarist intellectuals identify and then expose the immoral, destructive nature of force-backed "external authority", they will never be able to stop such neocheaters. Competitive pressure of business is the only dynamic that will collapse "external authority". Nothing else can. For only such competitive pressure can drive more and more people into integrated thinking.
Integrated Thinking Stops The Nothingness Drain
The integrated thinker never feels a sense of livelihood vulnerability. He inherently knows he will succeed anywhere, anytime. He is integrated with the essence of value production.
Other essence builders do not represent a long-range threat to the integrated thinker. For, the integrated thinker builds upon the value foundations of other essence builders.
If the world were populated with integrated thinkers, even if they did not explicitly identify the hoax of "external authority", all force-backed empires, all institutionalized mysticism would collapse. For, the support pillars would no longer exist. Indeed, the integrated thinker is a profit-generating essence mover. He is not dependent on anyone else -- especially not on government neocheaters to protect his livelihood.
But, in today's conscious/mystic world, a constant and pervasive resistance toward integrated thinking exists. Even if a person is enthusiastic about Neo-Tech concepts, he will still avoid integrated thinking in his jobif he has not been previously exposed to hard, money-making integrated thinking. Money-making integrated thinking is completely alien to most.
MYSTICISM is the creation of problems where none exist. Mysticism is both an individual and a collective disease that puts people in coffins and societies on crutches. Mysticism leaves empty heads and instills sour faces on people. Mysticism is an act of war on rational thinking, honest effort, prosperous happiness, and life itself.
NEOCHEATING is the deceptive manipulation of mysticism to extract values earned by others.
MYSTICS AND NEOCHEATERS are people who live by attacking values created by others rather than by producing values for others and society. Mystics and neocheaters make good seem bad and bad seem good. They trash the good and protect the bad. They attack integrated, essence-moving business thinking and actions. They attack Truth and Reality
