Jerm talks to Laura Aboli about the fast approaching fascist technocracy.
Ignorance and fear are the primary tools of the ruling class that can be understood in the context of Marxist philosophy and critical theory. The ruling class refers to the class that owns the means of production in a given society and applies their cultural hegemony to maintain their power.
The controllers use various methods to maintain their power, including:
- Ideological Control: The ruling class uses ideas and norms to maintain their power. Cultural hegemony refers to the way in which a society’s ruling class maintains power using ideas and norms.
- Economic Exploitation: The ruling class benefits from the exploitation of the working class, which is the proletariat.
- Political Power: The ruling class uses political power to legitimise and protect their property and social relations.
Ignorance and fear are tools that the ruling class uses to maintain their power, they promote ignorance by controlling access to information and education, and they promote fear by creating a sense of threat or danger.
“The only two enemies we have is ignorance and fear.”
