Bureaucracy and lawmaking in the Age of Higher Awareness

What is behind corruption? Corruption could not exist if there was not a bureaucracy, and so we need to talk about the role of bureaucracy in the Age of Higher Awareness. In order to understand this topic, you need to understand that the manipulators exist on this planet. They are seeking to use absolutely anything in order to achieve their ends, which may be to gain power and control or it may be to simply create destruction and chaos, or to stop growth. There are different groups of manipulators; they have different aims. Sometimes they clash with each other. In some cases they actually magnify each other, and so it is a complicated situation we face on earth. 

If there was a higher state of collective consciousness, then a communist system with state ownership of the means of production could actually function. The economy could survive in the long run, and it could even bring forth a fairly egalitarian society where the people could be reasonably happy. Karl Marx was not the first person in the world to think of such a society. You can go back even in known history, but certainly beyond known history, and find societies that had, basically, common ownership of the means of production and of land. These societies were well-functioning. 

What it is that distorts the communist society so that the economy cannot function? Well, it is that there emerges this power elite. It is the influence of the manipulators who are not seeking to make the society function, but who are seeking to use it for the purposes of control, or even on a greater agenda of creating conflict in the world that could lead to destruction. 

If you were to turn this around and look at what traditionally you would call a capitalist society, you would see that in unrestrained Capitalism, a power elite will also form. They will take to themselves special privileges, and therefore in the outermost consequence, there will be a small elite who owns all of the means to production. You have a situation that is not very different from the situation in a communist country. What prevents a capitalist economy from functioning in the long run is again the formation of an elite and the influence of the manipulators. The manipulators will use absolutely anything for their ends. They will use Capitalism, they will use Communism, they will use any type of society. They will use any institution in society. So now let us look at bureaucracy. 

Why do you have a bureaucracy? Most people would say that it is in order to create a functioning state, to ensure that all people have equal rights before the law, equal opportunity, that things are functioning well, that people do not build houses that fall down upon themselves, and that they drive safely on the roads, and that there is an infrastructure that actually functions. 

This is, of course, the higher meaning of a bureaucracy but this is not the way bureaucracies function at the present moment because they have been heavily influenced by the manipulators. What do the manipulators do? One of the things they do is that they always seek to complicate everything, to make things more and more complex, more and more complicated. They set up these systems, these mechanisms, where the complexity of the system creates certain inherent problems. Then, what is the solution to these problems that the manipulators always recommend? It is more control, more bureaucracy, more laws, more rules, more regulations. 

You might say that the way bureaucracies are functioning right now, it is a typical example of the process where the manipulators create a problem and then set themselves up as the only ones who have the solution to the problem. Their solution to the problem does not solve the problem. It just makes it more and more complicated. In many nations in the world bureaucracies have become more and more complicated, more and more difficult to administer. There are more rules, more regulations. You can see the EU, which is practically drowning in rules and regulations. 

The effect of this in the long run will be to not only shut down the people’s creativity, but also dampen the economy. It will also have the effect of giving special privileges to the businesses who are already big and established because they can afford to hire the people, including lawyers, to comply with all of the government regulations whereas smaller businesses cannot afford to do this. You can, through sufficient regulation, create virtual monopolies. This, of course, shuts down that flow of creativity and therefore it puts a lid on economic growth. 

Naturally, as we move further and further into the Age of Higher Awareness, the collective consciousness will be raised. This will have two effects. One is that the manipulators will lose their power. You do not anymore have that downward pull or that chaotic influence of the manipulators that seek to use any system to create complexity and chaos, even destruction. The other thing that will happen is that people’s consciousness will be raised. 

What is one of the legitimate functions of bureaucracy? Well, it is to prevent people from exploiting each other, taking advantage of each other, by creating certain rules and enforcing them. That is why, in the purest form, you have a police force. A police force was never meant to suppress the general population, but of course only correct those who violated or exploited others. When a police force becomes the source of exploitation in itself, well that is, of course, not sustainable in the Age of Higher Awareness. 

Shifting to a positive outlook on life

When you have that raising of the collective consciousness, it becomes a very subtle shift where people begin to realize that they do not need to steal from others, they do not need to manipulate others, they do not need to exploit others because there are plenty of business opportunities, or work opportunities. You can earn a living, and a good living, in a perfectly legitimate way that does not exploit other people. 

You have this shift into a positive outlook on life, and that means people are no longer seeking to exploit each other, they are no longer seeking to avoid work. Everybody is focused on expressing their creativity or their industriousness in the best possible way so they can make money in a legitimate way. This means that everybody is contributing to the growth of the economy, which means there is even more to multiply, and then the economy grows even further. When this positive shift happens, and people are not so focused on exploiting each other, the need for a bureaucracy gradually decreases to the point where you end up having a bureaucracy that is far, far smaller than what you have today in most countries.

This means that the bureaucracy becomes less complex. It also means that the people in a bureaucracy start shifting their mindset. They are not so focused on preventing a negative as on promoting a positive. Instead of thinking they have to correct the people and rein them in and control them, they are focused on how they can actually promote growth. This also means that there will come a point where the laws of the nations – at least for the forerunners of the Age of Higher Awareness – will shift. 

Instead of being focused on preventing this exploitation and making things illegal (and making it more difficult to cheat others, or cheat the state), you create new kinds of laws that are actually meant to ensure that people have the best possible opportunity to express their creativity in the ways that benefit the whole. Suddenly, the law becomes less complex. There are less hindrances put in the way. Certainly, there are laws that do not favor big businesses, but allow all businesses a legitimate opportunity. Suddenly, you have this very positive shift where, again, everybody is focused on growth rather than being focused on preventing some kind of calamity or disorder or the overthrow of the status quo, the overthrow of society, or this or that. 

There is no need for violent revolutions in the Golden Age because societies are in the process of progressive growth, progressive expansion, progressive evolution. Suddenly, those who are in charge of societies begin to realize that they can relax, they can take it easy, because the danger of these violent revolutions that was there is dissipated because there is no longer the tension among the people. People are focused on what they all want in the end: They want a good life for themselves. 

No need for violent revolutions

There will come later stages in the Age of Higher Awareness where the majority of the population in many nations will have moved to the point where they are seeking to selflessly serve the whole or serve other people. But in the beginning stages, people will be focused on creating a good life for themselves. When they do this, creating a good life for yourself actually helps to create a better life for the whole, therefore a better life for other people. Suddenly, there is no need for these kind of repressive, controlling societies that you see today. It is not that people will go to violent revolutions to overthrow such repressive societies, they will simply gradually fade away because there will be no need for them. People will not accept them. They will simply stand up and make it known that they want to live in a different society, and there is no question that the leaders will eventually have to comply. 

Those who do not comply, will simply disappear. They will go out of embodiment, they will lose their power. If the majority of the people in a nation decide that they want a different society, then the leaders who will not go along with this will disappear. There is no question about it. There is no reason, or no need, for a violent revolution to overthrow such leaders. It is simply a matter of a critical number of the people deciding: “We will not accept this anymore in our nation. We want to live in a different kind of nation, and this is the kind of nation we want to live in.” 

How governments will change

This will bring so many shifts around the world, and suddenly you will see that the governments will begin to change. There is a need to experiment with direct democracy where the people begin to vote on various issues. Of course, it is not practical that the people vote on all issues. There will still be a need for a governmental apparatus with representatives, with bureaucrats that can carry out the will of the people. 

In many countries today there is an awareness or a consciousness that there is a certain distance between the politicians and the bureaucrats and the people. This often breeds a sense of superiority among the politicians and the bureaucrats, even among business leaders or the media, or institutions of society, such as educational institutions. These people feel superior to the general population. They feel it is their role to govern society and tell the people what they should want for their own good. In the Age of Higher Awareness, this will simply fade away. 

Again, there will be a change of the guard where the people who cannot move on with these changes as the consciousness is raised, will simply disappear from their positions. They will withdraw, they will retire, they will find some other thing to do. This will give rise to an entirely new generation of those politicians and bureaucrats who will catch on to the need to serve the whole, to serve the people. Suddenly, you will no longer have this sense of distance between the government and the population, and therefore the people in the government will not feel superior to the population. The people themselves will not feel afraid, they will not feel distanced, they will not feel suspicious of their governments. 

As the manipulators are removed from the planet, as the consciousness is raised, all of the conspiracy theories will fade away because whatever conspiracies have some reality to them will fade away. The people will be raised where they no longer believe in some of these fantasies that are put out there. The shift will be a shift in a positive direction. 

The gap between people and politicians

If you look back in history, you may look at some of these dynamics that have been happening in many nations between the population and the government, and you may ask yourself: “Why has there been this animosity, this conflict, this suspicion? Why has this existed for so long?” It is truly very difficult to understand from a logical, rational standpoint. Many people who research conditions in society have actually looked at this and asked themselves: “What could explain this? Why hasn’t, even in the democratic nations, there been a shift so that the people feel closer to the politicians and vice versa so there isn’t a gap, there isn’t the room for suspicion.” 

From a rational, scientific viewpoint, you cannot explain this. There is no rational explanation. The explanation is the existence of the manipulators and their influence, and the level of the collective consciousness. Once this becomes clear to some of the people who are very knowledgeable about society and how society functions, it will create another shift where the more advanced people in societies will come to recognize that there has always been a power elite that has not been a force for good. You cannot really build a constructive society without recognizing this and without taking the necessary steps to prevent such an elite from controlling a society and therefore holding back growth. 

It will also be acknowledged, from a purely universal perspective, that there must be a collective consciousness. There will even come a time when there will be more clear scientific proof of this than you have today—where you actually have enough scientific proof to convince anyone who is in a neutral state of mind. There will come a point where this gains widespread acceptance, and where the leaders of society begin to recognize that it is necessary to look at, and to raise, the collective consciousness in order to improve society. 

It is not a matter of going out and seeking to force the people, or control the people, or create more laws and regulations. It is a matter of helping the people resolve the wounds and the divisions in their own psyches, in their own psychologies, so that they become more whole human beings and therefore are able to live more constructive lives. There will also be an awareness that why this has not happened before is because the power elite did not want it to happen because to them, the more unwhole, the more divided, the more psychologically crippled that the population was, the easier it was to control them.
