The Purpose of All Social Relations

The motto of all social relations can be encapsulated in one short sentence:

“Don’t be that guy.”

Don’t be that guy who’s the first to step off the transports on D-day.
Don’t be that guy who gets laid off when they have to cut some jobs.
Don’t be that guy who has no connections in the food ministry when there’s a famine.
Don’t be that guy who gets caught when everyone is breaking the rules.
Don’t be that guy who never finds out he’s been cuckolded and raises another man’s seed.
Just don’t be that guy.  It doesn’t matter how we make it happen.  We must.  Those who can’t are exploited and weeded out.

This is the reason why humans developed big brains to begin with — an arms race against each other.
The rewards of having someone else take the big risks and misfortunes for you are enormous.
The consequences of being taken advantage of are disastrous and often fatal.

Even monkeys have hierarchies where those low in rank are forced to do the most dangerous jobs with greatest vulnerability to predators while those on top get all the best mates.  Humans are just slightly more clever monkeys.  Throughout life, other people work hard to give us the short end of the stick while trying to get better for themselves and their own.  So it goes from small time jobs to the highest levels of the state.

Proles are oblivious to this reality of life, believing instead in things like “hard work” and taking pride in sweat and drudgery.  They choose to believe in religions that explain away the obvious injustice in the world around them with promises of an afterlife.

A different world view sets the middle class utterly apart from the worker masses.  They understand the goal of social relations and spend their whole lives striving not to be that guy as they “network” and exchange business cards over “continental breakfast” at their hotel.  They’re ahead because they know the right game to play.  But they’re still mediocre.  Of those playing the right game, they’re the worst at it.
Deep down they know this and they spend decades trying to compensate for their insecurity and “get ahead” by reading self help books, listening to motivational speakers, obsessing about the latest trendy “management strategies”, buying leather bound day planners, and making sure their windsor knot is flawless in the mirror before attempting to comb over that bald spot.

    Some say fascism fixed this problem, or could.

    That was brutal !
    Remember that Middle Class people has bought into modern complacency becoming even more domesticated than proles despite their “high IQ”. As Nietzsche suggested they lost or corrupted their instincts.
