"Chains" Are Way to Dodge Responsibility, PlusMeans of
Trapping, Destroying Cause


HRUOUT all the books of all our histories, there now rings a
common cry (or scream, or hollow chant)

which is most generally to b~ interpreted as "Free the slavesl"
This is based on the assumption that slaves uunt to
be free. And no doubt some of them do. These generally achieve
their freedom-one way or another - but mainly their
only real wish is to make some slavemaster guilty of depriving
them of their freedom. History also is full of
instances of the actions taken by those who, when freed

refused the responsibility of freedom an~ promptly re-entered the
same, or slightly different, form of bondage-
willingly and eagerly.

There is a mechanism here-a grisly mechanism-which it is most
unfashionable to discuss, but which can and
shall be made explicit . It is long past time for this gruesome
and deadly game to be unmasked-and I here use
"game" in the same sense as in the Circus Maximus of old.

In the beginning, let us (since no adequate deflnition existsi
deflne a slave by his actions and his purpose, as he
has only one of each

whatever guise he may adopt in their ac~om_' plishment.

First, a slave has only one real activitythe creation of
slavemasters. To this end , slaves will come flocking to
any cause-point of which they become aware, and, in ef f ect,
say: "Master, please give an order to me, your slave. "

Second, a slave has only one purpose - the degradation of cause
by the simple expedient of convincing the cause-
point that it is "bad cause".

If the elecrect slavemaster falls for the trap, and gives an
order, the slaves are certain to promptly go out and goof
up on the command, doing damage to themselves or the environment,
andthen return saying: "Master, see what
horrible things you have caused, thru/to me, your faithful

The end result of the repetition of this, many times, is for the
thoroly trapped slavemaster (hyphen intentional,
because descriptivel to tire of being made "bad cause" every time
he attempts to do something thru "his" slaves, and
then decide that the only place where he will not be "bad cause"
is as one of the slaves himself. Thus, the final
purpose of the slaves is achieved, and the augmented body of
slaves seeks out another cause-point to destroy.

The mechanism shows in many ramifications. The one most familiar
to all of us, since it is used so jDften. is
the request for "proof". (The difference here is not the person
who says "Show me" but the one who says "Prove it

me".) Here the slave who askb to have something proven to him is
asking you to substitute your knowingness for
his. He is asking you to overwhelm him so that he need not be
responsible for knowing. This differs from
demonstration, or a show of evidence. Neither evidence nor
demonstration is a "proof" of anything. The Galileo
problem (if they will not look thru the telescope, then they will
never see what only the telescope can show them)
remains unchanged. But"proving" it to them is the rather forceful
method of making them use your knowingness to
order their lives If you walk into this trap, then you will
sho~tly flnd your converts (slaves) either failing to "Prove"
things to still others, goofing directly with this
other-knowingness, or altering the data that they are "proving" in
some damaging way. In any case, YOU, the source-point for the
"proven data", will get stuck with these second-
hand overt acts against persons whom you never have met.

There is. of course, another side to the demand for"proof". The
slave always has the sneaking hope that if you
bring forth your best .proofs" and fail, in the task of "proving"
data to him that you know to be true, then you may
decide your data is invalid, and to that extent be destroyed.
After a little of thisfailing to"prove" and being destroyed
by the failure, you finally can go out and join the hordes whose
purpose is the total destruction of all knowingness

In other words, the person who says,"Where may I see the evidence
or demonstration?" is most probably sincere,
but the one who challenges"prove it" is intending nothing but the
destruction of your knowingriess, and should be
recognized as a destructive agent.

Note here that it hurts not at all to give a demonstration, or
show evidence, to such a one. Sometimes, in spite
of himself and his intention, he will see something so real for
him that he cannot refuse to know it for himself. If
only the compulsive-game.,; stage of "proving" in response to a
challenge can be avoided, all will go well.

The great near-miraculous surprise is that, with this destructive
current on this planet, and
rampant for these past many centuries, that there remain still
some sparks of ability for the
fanning. It is, indeed, a blessed wonder that there are still
persons who can accept an
instruction and carry it out, who can still witness evidence and
see for themselves, and who
know, or can learn, that it is not neces - sary to accept the
overts of slaves as their own.

The means to free the planet, then, is definitely not to expend
either time or energy upon
the slaves, the wasteful and destructive ones, but to free the
most able, save the
slavemasters, and let the slaves go masterless for a while. As we
process these most able
ones, and recover for them their true degree of responsibility
for their actions, real and
