Formal education is the institutional body of modern religion, each completed stage a sacrament. So Kinder Garden is like baptism, elementary school is like the first communion, high school is like the confirmation, college/undergrad university is being ordained as a priest, one enters the priestly class that herds the flock, graduate studies are for higher priest occupations like cardinal or bishop, post grad and doctoral studies are like becoming a monk or entering the very highest rung of priesthood where doctrine is decided upon.


That makes sense.
When God was still alive education actually had content.
After Communism education has been mostly neutralisation.

Yes. I am the most arrogant man alive, it comes with the job of prescribing law for the whole of mankind.
I dont do this out of modesty.

I got upper class.

Sharp test.

For you who want to move up the standard: black tea with sugar, full English breakfast. No fancy brunches, tradition. Bacon and sausage.

Brilliantly, I took the test over a plate of English breakfast and a black tea with sugar.

Beyond that, of course the Alps and the German Shepherd.

I'm not against bias. I'm against bias that pretends not to exist.

What isn't ever bias?

If we all stopped to think about bias, we'd become a planet of non-achievers, and there'd be zero progress.. or very little, but then this begs the question.. to what extent should bias be utilised, without being at the expense of others, so as not to cause war enslavement etc. etc. etc?

No-one likes being stifled and their shine dulled.. which people cannot help but do, so putting one's mindset out of the hive mind will allow it not to happen, whether that be classified as the class system or not.

Wikipedia:
The social structure of the United Kingdom has historically been highly influenced by the concept of social class, with the concept still affecting British society today.[1][2]

The biggest current study of social class in the United Kingdom is the Great British Class Survey.[9]

For some reason, us Brits are all kind of obsessed with class.
There are a lot of things that can signify class, such as how we speak and how we eat, but can we guess your social class from just eight random questions?

Take our quiz to find out – and let us know if we get it right (or horribly wrong)!


I got:
Upper-middle class
Image

You're upper-middle class! You probably had a good education before going off and studying at university, quite possibly enjoying city life in London or Manchester. You're partial to some avocado toast and a bit of smoked salmon, and while you wouldn't call yourself posh, you do enjoy some of the finer things in life.

This is actually spot on.. but I'd like more money to go with that social status, please.

You don't have to be British to take the test, so see if you're rating is as accurate as mine?




Class is all about honesty and transparency at once, to one"s self and to others.

The person who can de temporalize a change of class by facade is in bad faith, but simultaneously can gain the keys to salvation. That process can take a very long time, albeit can be achieved during one lifetime, if belief in reincarnation is sustained.

It is fear, of the outward look imposed from outside, that cracks the mirror of self apprehension , and not some dread emulating from the inside. That is what invariably sets the stage for a fall, whether it be of one's derivation to a personal dramatic myth of it, or the discovered irony of it on the grand scale of theatre. The cave of the earliest being holds its grip to this shadow world, because transformations only wirk nowadays by quick costume change. To be truly real, fear will dissipate with time with letting go of all props, and letting the conflicting classes brand the middle way as opportunistic.

And that confirms the true way to deliverance. This, the highest learning, has to occur inside out.

Whatever happened to the days when tea with milk was de rigeur..? I miss a tea with milk, but when needs must.

There are different algorithms, that generate the same result, so the result generated is not really dependent on any one specific answer.

Btw Fixed.. apparently Labour have been hijacked by the posh/Upper class set, here, but have Labour really ever been run by the working class?

I don't know what changed. It changed in me, too. I used to have it with milk.

Thats even more satisfying then.

I pride myself on understanding virtually every intellectual or deep-psychological issue people come to me with, but I wouldn't go so far as pretending to understand English politics.
Just as little as I would pretend to know who is hiding in a broom closet near the Kremlin wall at this point.

Hahaha! it's reflective of the people here.. literally, which is the thing that is spoiling being in British politics for me, having to dodge the historically-entrenched left v right battlefield.

Right now.. no-one.

I am precise with language when I speak, Moreso than an average person. I do this for spiritual protection though

Sainsburys has a pricey celebrity-endorsed range, so probably why it's still on the Upper's radar.. as does Tesco, but Lidl and Aldi are definitely at the lower end of the spectrum, but such shops are now in vogue for frugality's sake. Morrisons and Asda are mid-range, and are mainly only found in superstore areas.

I have heard you speak.. in your videos, but how does speaking in a measured way aid with spiritual protection? or do you simply mean in a social-buffering sense?


Part of our being is spirit, not the other way around.

Delta class

You're Delta class! You probably had a good education before going off and experimenting at the colonies, quite possibly enjoying city life in London or Manchester. You're partial to some cranial shrimp toast and a bit of oily Eustachius tubes, and while you wouldn't call yourself cruel, you do enjoy some of the finer things in life.
