But what cannot be refuted is the destructive nature of rulership over others—an affront to free will and the inherent sovereignty of conscious beings.
A slave is defined as a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them. When a ruler claims to have the right to force others to obey them, he is effectively claiming ownership over others, claiming to be a master of all other people who are slaves by definition.
What this means is that any form of government that places obligations on the citizenry without gaining their express consent is a system of slavery. The governments of today—evolved from the slave-based elite societies of the past—compel the people to obey under the guise of patriotism and loyalty to the state.
But in the end, no matter what the society looks like or the justification is, when one person or group claims the right to force others to obey them—and the people comply—that society is enslaved by an elite.
The Law of One or Ra Material are 106 channelled sessions, brought forward in the early 80s through the work of a group of mediums for L/L Research. The material is regarded as some of the most accurately channelled information in history. The extraterrestrial entity, Ra, when asked about a nefarious group the Orion Crusaders, said that their technique or strategy for conquering new worlds doesn’t involve the use of incredible weapon systems, massive invasion forces, or physical oppression of the local people. They exploit ideas as the “weapons” of war. Here is an excerpt of interest:
7.14 Questioner: I’ll just ask about Orion. You mentioned Orion as a source of some of the contacts of UFOs. Can you tell me something of that contact, its purpose?
Ra: I am Ra. Consider, if you will, a simple example of intentions which are bad/good. This example is Adolf. This is your vibratory sound complex. The intention is to presumably unify by choosing the distortion complex called elite from a social memory complex and then enslaving, by various effects, those who are seen as the distortion of not-elite. There is then the concept of taking the social memory complex thus weeded and adding it to a distortion thought of by the so-called Orion group as an empire. The problem facing them is that they face a great deal of random energy released by the concept of separation. This causes them to be vulnerable as the distortions amongst their own members are not harmonized.
Wading through some of the terminology, Ra says “The intention is to presumably unify by choosing the distortion complex called elite from a social memory complex and then enslaving, by various effects, those who are seen as the distortion of not-elite.” The idea of elitism itself is transmitted to an evolving world like ours. And then, by appealing to egoism of the leadership, elitist philosophies become dominant in the ruling classes.
The idea that someone has a right to tell another person what to do is an elitist concept, whether based on blood, wealth, intelligence, or what have you. And in taking up this form of organizing society, that civilization becomes enslaved to the Orions. Thus, the Earth was “taken over” by extraterrestrials long ago—since the beginning of modern human history when elitist-kingdoms became the standard.
It is also asserted in the Law of One that the extraterrestrial crusaders or conquerors are prevented from outright conquest due to the preservation of free will under divine law. Furthermore, gross enslavement and conquest require incredible amounts of energy and resources to maintain. It is far easier to get people to enslave themselves and then begin to feed on that culture when it is ready. This is essentially what happened to the Earth.
In the past, when critical thinking and education was less common, the idea of the divine right to rule via bloodline was widely accepted.
In the very distant past, these rights were associated with off-world beings that came down from heaven to appoint leaders amongst the children of men. The kings of Sumer were of this type. But over the centuries, rights of kingship were associated with deities and religions, like Christendom’s kings being anointed by the Holy Roman Church. Furthermore, the Vatican is an elitist organization that claims to have the divine right of ministership over all creatures via various doctrines and bulls.
Today, the divine right to rule or elitist methods of organizing society have changed to a more meritocratic system. Social Darwinism emerged in the 1880s to replace rulership claims in association with …
