This is my answer to the Question which was on Quora.
The Human Condition is evolving into something less than Human. In fact many are already at the point where it can be said that they are just a material.
Many people, particularly in the Western World, have accepted a way of interaction that has isolated them from the interaction of the human condition with those who are less fortunate.
Many are willing to accept a conditioned mediocre society as long as they are kept safe by whoever imposes conditions on their behavior and hence they become material.
However, by doing so they lose their freedom of expression and their ability to fight for the freedom of others. Life becomes ‘self-satisfied’ and a constant search for the next ‘experience high’.
Our Governments and Establishments have failed to progress Society and develop its Humanity so instead they seek to contain and control us in order to ensure our behaviour is predictable and manageable – this way they hope to contain crime and terrorism.
They ignore the root cause of crime and terrorism which is their failure to ensure fairness in mankind’s progression and instead seek to micro-manage the whole of their Societies.
We are at the end of ‘freedom of expression’. Our Governments will have to become more decronian and more controlling of our rights if Society is to continue to remain manageable.
To do that they need the ‘material condition’. The other developer of the ‘material condition’ is AI and its derivatives. This is a real threat to our Philosophical Freedom and has already been embraced by our Governments. AI can never produce Philosophy as it incapable of free thought. It is Philosophy that develops humanity and produces the actions for mankind that progress the ‘human condition’ ie civilization.
To confront a Government with your own ideas is now almost as if you are going to war with them. They simply no longer listen. They fear ideas other than their own because they do want a new Philosophy which may displace their own ideologies.
The material condition is encouraged and fostered to ensure that Citizens are too afraid to seek other than their own material satisfaction.
The United Kingdom and Theresa May are the leading examples in the Western World of how the ‘material society’ is progressing. May is at the forefront of imposing new controls on the Internet that will only seek to increase the divide between the State and its People.
The acceptance of the failure of our Governments to manage our Economies fairly is at the root cause of the emergence of the ‘material condition’.
Terrorism and Crime thrive on Economic Mismanagement which is a symptom of modern Governments inability to accept new ideas – the vicious circle of the Ivory Tower.
Hence the ‘Protection of the Material’ and its embryonic human condition ‘the need to be selfish’ so that there is no need to concern yourself with the actions of your Governments on Human Rights.
