SOCIALIZATION INTO “WHITE PRIVILEGE”
A Society’s Philosophy and Values are the background behind its Socialization foreground public displays. These, for Europeans, imaged as a Force, are drawn from their fantasized Supernatural realm. Historically, they have claimed the Supernatural to be “superior” to everything, everywhere–including the Natural World, orchestrated by the Spiritual Force, Sekhem. “Supernatural” implies broken Laws of Nature whereby “SEEMing” to be real Phantasmagoric Beings (fantastic sequences of haphazardly associative imagery) exist by appearances. Such mindsets have birthed Supernatural Gods, Hell, and the Devil—all deemed to be “Superior” to, above, better, highest, indifferent, greatest possible, and in charge/in command of the Natural world’s everything/everybody. The “Superiority” and “Supernatural” claim says their natures do not allow any definitions by objective observers nor competitors to challenge it since both are too great or dignified to be influenced. Both claims date to, and are interwoven with, ancient European religious myths. For example, in certain myths (e.g. of Semele), the “Superior” destroys by “burning up” the “Inferior”–the “Inferior” being defined as “poor” and situated “under or beneath” the “Superior”. Also, those entering the “Superior” Star’s domain are invested with its ‘Halo”. Yet, once inside, if one proves unworthy, then one becomes “poor” and thus must be destroyed. So prominent were these concepts that Europeans’ famous psychologist, Adler, said: “the prime source of man’s motivation is the innate striving for superiority… all other motives are expressions of this aim…. It lies at the root of all solutions of life’s problems and is manifested in the way in which we meet these problems. All our functions follow its direction. They strive for conquest, security, increase, either in the right or in the wrong direction. The impetus from minus to plus never ends. The urge from below to above never ceases” (Krech, Elements of Psychology p620).
Reber (Psychology p732) defines “Socialization” as: “Generally, the process whereby an individual acquires the knowledge, values, facility of language, social skills, and social sensitivity that enables him or her to become integrated into and behave adaptively within a society.” An addition: “The process of the taking over by the state of the services, industry and other institution of a society for the (ostensible) benefit of all members.” Socialization is like placing infants in a prison without walls that none can taste, hear, feel, touch, or smell because it is integrated into the minds of each. Such a mindset state is described in Socrates’ “Allegory of the Cave” as a delusion of believing what is unreal and not believing what is real. Still, by one being born into a generally flawed Delusional Society means there is no way for one to realize those flaws and delusions. Hence, one believes both to be “normal,” “right,” and the “truth.” By the time ones Intellect matures so as to doubt the rightness of the unproven inhumane Assumptions their society displays, there are greater “pressures” exerted to maintain the status quo. One pressure is the need “to go along to get along,” since “everybody” is in the delusional flow. Another pressure is that by the age of Reason, ones socialized Delusions have become Unconscious impressions–called Engrams (permanent memories). Acting like Delusional Stars, Engram Halos have long ago radiated into all of ones activities of daily living. Each ray displays in ways compatible with the nature of its Delusional Star source—similar to how children display behaviors of their parents.
An analogy is the star-light continuing to be seen on Earth long after its star stopped existing. Hence, even if one shed all Delusional Stars, rays of each would be left to manifest out of ones mind. For the concept of “White Privilege” to be an Unexamined Assumptionprominent in the theme of Europeans’ Socialization Patterns means one born into it sees nothing wrong with it. So, when its inhumaneness is brought to ones attention, it is simply ignored–as if it does not exist—fearing truth. Instead, whatever/whoever brings inhumaneness concepts to ones attention is immediately declared “to be wrong” and “Inferior”. Since, inherently the “White Privileged” think of any unlike them or anything unlike what they believe in to be “inferior” and thus “poor,” they will “forever” delusionally believe themselves to be “superior.” Whereas being ones Real Self has no concept of superior or inferior, the Supernatural mind allows for both. In short, these Supernatural, Superior, and Inferior fantasies contain the Essence concepts of what gave rise to cults designating themselves as “Superior” and having undeserved Privileges. jabaileymd.com
