= Joe 'Canaille' according to Gerald H. Massey
We all know there is an awful deal of suffering in the world that cannot be considered as a mere individual question!--sufferings that we do not individually cause, and are not personally responsible for--sufferings bequeathed to us as individuals and as members of the State; for we have to bear the accumulated burdens of centuries on centuries of ignorance, or, worse still, of willful crime, and, worst of all, of wrong made sacred by religious sanction, and supported by Law and the Press. And the burden of the many crushes the individual to the earth; and the God of Justice appears to be blind to the case--makes no rush to the rescue, even when we suffer for the sins of others. Be sure even these can be turned to eternal account. But, he has this lesson to convey to the world—
Humanity is one. And the power that ‘IS’ has instituted certain laws--laws that operate for the species rather than the individual, an important distinction to be made in any interpretation of nature; laws that deal with the species as one in spite of our manifold diversities and our deified doctrine of every-one-on-his-own-hook-ism. He does not put forth his hand to take you off your hook when it happens to run into you particularly sharp, flesh or soul, and makes you supplicate or swear. Establish what private relationship you can with your Maker, and derive what spiritual succor you may whilst bearing the burden, or writhing on the iron that enters you, the laws that do deal with humanity in the aggregate, and operate for the good of the species, will go grinding on with their larger revolutions that sub serve eternal interests whilst crushing terribly many smaller claims of individual life: For, mark this, the Eternal intends to show us that humanity is one, and the family is more than the individual member, the nation is more than the family, and the human race is more than the nation. And if we do not accept the revelation lovingly, do not take to the fact kindly, why then 'tis flashed upon us terribly, by lightning of hell, if we will not have it by light of heaven, and the poor neglected scum and canaille of the nations rise up mighty in the strength of disease, and prove the oneness of humanity by killing you with the same infection.
What is interesting is the Slave Master's use of the media (G.H. Massey's Press) to canonize the silently acquiescent(civil servant/house slave) in a futile endeavor to quell the rising tide of civil discontent as the former buffer/middle class (Overseer) merge and morph into the Canaille. All the while Mother is screaming in the background "Whose your Landlord?" I hope Californians realize that the newest of buildings are merely coded to withstand a 7.0 magnitude. Does Pat Robertson have a divine answer for Chile's 8.8.
