3.1       Study of the Process of Disalienation of a Commune   

 

The history of mankind is the history of the individual's powerlessness, and of the rule of authority, the history of authoritative, imposed and, therefore, alienated categories of values, of the alienated activities and, consequently, of alienated knowledge. The history of mankind is a history of alienation or alienated history.  

If you think that the development of society has improved the situation today you are wrong. It has only brought new forms that hide the needs of individual to take control over another individual. Today most presidents of the countries swear about democracy but in reality they successfully avoid it as much as it is possible because they like to keep power in their own hands. Most priests pray to God that Jesus comes soon but in reality they would like much more to keep the right to interpret their words the way it suits them best. Most company owners swear by the free market but in reality they try hard to create a monopoly for themselves. Most teachers are convinced that they love to spread knowledge to students but in reality they prefer to rule over the students with the knowledge they have acquired. Most parents swear to God about their love for their children but in reality they love the power over their children. The situation follows the pattern of these samples almost everywhere. All people incline toward privileges. The problem is that privileges are evil for privileged people and the whole society.

There is no doubt that all these rulers suppress the people in every moment of their lives. Once the individual becomes aware of themselves in such a society, they are already linked with the influences of alienated generations, and are forced to accept the alienated world, as the other world is inaccessible, they do not see it. If the individual tries to overcome the inconveniences that stem from alienation, it would be hard for them to reach any good result because the alienation has taken their the ability to recognise their natural needs, because they already largely think through the alienated premises of comprehending the causes of the inconveniencies, because they came across the obstacles of the alienated society.

Because of the lack of objective knowledge, the alienated society is subject to accidental selection of determinations that stem from the alienated visions of conveniences. Such a society is inclined to idolatry, fetishism, and very superficial election of vital determinations. The individual in an alienated society bases their own belief in the conveniences on alienated assumptions and therefore, sooner or later, experiences disappointment. They come into contradiction with their own nature, which brings them great inconveniences.  When in real life the individual's alienated needs come across obstacles in their alienated consciousness, their vision of survival is also endangered. Then the very doubt in the correctness of their orientation brings tension that pushes them to strive for the alienated vision of survival. Such a struggle may, without objective reasons, endanger other people.  

The endangering of the individual's alienated needs brings along aggression by which the alienation may be recognized. Such an individual is waiting for any opportunity or authoritative invitation to act aggressively. If the individual forms a narcissistic vision of consciousness, they then induce a great destruction toward their environment. A destructively oriented individual destroys the conditions for the exercise of their own benefits. Instead of purifying their thoughts, drawing conclusions within the limits of their possibilities, and then moving forward, such an individual passes through life blindly with strong destructive emotions and strives, as such, in favour of their own impotency, for their own inconveniences.  

When in the individual's vision external forces are too strong, the individual then suppresses their own needs. The individual cannot meet the suppressed needs, which induces a non-defined anxiety in the individual through everyday life. Separation of life from the individual's nature brings neurotic disorders and depressive states. The individual frequently finds the way out of such states in a temporary curb of emotions by means of alcohol, drugs or medicaments.    

The more the individual is alienated from their own nature, the greater the deviations of their personality are. Also, contradictions in the individual are larger and it is more difficult for them to control their own emotional states, including energy. The individual is then inclined to any form of self-destruction. In extreme cases, the alienation generates, due to non-satisfied needs, tension of such proportions that the individual cannot objectively comprehend nature. Such an individual is an ill individual, and such a society is an ill society.  

Anything the individual does in life, they do it with the idea of their own prosperity in mind. However, in the present-day alienated society, where subjective, erroneous categories of values are created, the effect is contrary. The alienated individual lives along the principle of own negation, they act against their own nature because they do not know their nature.  

*****

The problem of the alienation of society is wide and deep, and therefore it should be faced in a comprehensive manner.The analysis up to today allows one to conclude that all social inconvenient phenomena arise from the individual's inability or from the lack of knowledge, and alienation originated by authoritative limitations. One can conclude in this connection that all socially positive phenomena may arise from knowledge acquired in natural life based on freedom and equality of all individuals, because the individual's productive power develops only in such a way.  

The power of an individual over another individual is certainly the main problem of today's society. That is what needs to be eliminated if we really want to solve the problems we have today. It is not easy to be done at all, however this book offers a convincing solution. By this solution, we all need to sacrifice something in order to get much more and make a far better world.  

The society would need to form a system able to exist productively without the authorities and their ideologies, in the freedom and equality of all its members. It would need to allow each individual to acquire knowledge by their own practice. It is hard for the individual as an individual to form an objective idea about the laws of the movements in nature, because autonomy directs them easily toward subjective determinations and, consequently, toward alienation. The society, as a gathering of subjective individuals may by equal relation form through practice, a more objective vision of reality. The more the society will get to know the real laws of movements in nature, the real value categories and its real nature, the less alienated it will be. This will allow it to come closer to its own nature, to its prosperity.  

This book shows the process of disalienation in society. To be able to perform the process of disalienation, one must establish freedom and equality among people. Equal rights among people and true democracy will seize power from the authorities and establish a good and sane society. This book presents how such a society can be built. The emphasis of the book is on political and economic relations because they are basic relations in society.
