Explanation of the
<1>In the previous chapter, the domination of
the different classes in different eras during the last six thousand
years of history is explained.
<2>As it was described in The Holiest Book, in the
second chapter of Genesis,
God has created this
universe self-sustaining. He only interferes in this system when it
is extremely necessary. <3>Around twelve thousand years ago,
after the flood of Noah, the political and social systems in human
civilization were also made in this way (self-sustaining). Human
civilization has continued to progress during these years through
the clashes between different classes (Shudran, Ksattriyan, Vipran,
and Vaeshyan) and through the domination of each class in its era to
further human advancement.
<4>In the era of
Shudras, man was living
in fear and awe. They had few advancements in terms of tools and
living conditions. Also they were afraid of all things in their
surroundings. They would not dare to leave their territories to
explore other lands. In short, they had no courage.
<5>That is why in the Shudran era, physical
strength, courage, the ability to hunt, and leadership qualities
were praised by those who did not possess these characteristics.
<6>After a period of time, the courageous ones (Ksattriyas)
created a distinguished class in their tribes. The greatest of them
became the head or chief of the tribe.
<7>These chiefs later on became the generals,
kings, and emperors. They reached such a status that
godly attributes were given to them, or at least it was believed
their authority was by Divine sanction. As we can read in the book
of Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar made an image and demanded all
to worship it, and all did.
<8>In the beginning of this era (Ksattriyan),
the successor to the previous leader would be selected through a
contest between candidates. But later on, this process was changed,
and the son of the leader would just inherit the throne. This
arrangement simplified the selection of the successor, but also
weakened the leadership qualities, <9>because the son of a good
leader does not necessarily have the abilities of his father.
<10>Also as the kingdoms expanded and empires
were created, the administrative abilities of the
more and more were needed. <11>In addition, with the numerous
battles, there evolved an increasing reliance on sophisticated
tools, weapons, and political abilities, and it was
Vipras who had the abilities to develop such tools, weapons, and
diverse political maneuvers. So the kings and monarchs started
to depend more and more on their ministers and administrators.
<12>The battles between enemies was shifted from physical
struggles into political, and the advancement of artillery was
encouraged in order to assume supremacy.
<13>For these reasons the
Vipras started to
develop, and little by little they gained control and domination
over the kings. The monarchs and kings became merely symbolic
figures as the heads of state, but the true rulers were the
ministers and religious leaders. <14>They exploited the
masses by their systems of administration, ideas, and religious
superstitions. They created classes, psychological fears,
differentiated races from each other, and separated man from man by
teaching binding religious doctrines. With these tools they
demobilized the masses and kept them in
ignorance, and then
exploited them far beyond the
inflicted suffering by gathering wealth from their subjects and
taking them to the battlefield for purposes of self-glorification.
Vipras not only did both
of these exploiting acts, but also created psychological blockades
with such deep effects that they still have not been overcome by
humanity. <17>Most of the misunderstandings between humans are
because of these doctrines, especially in the case of religions,
racism, and idealism.
<18>However, it is also intellectuals who
invented great tools, discovered scientific facts (by His Will) and
helped man to develop the finer thoughts, such as the arts.
are not faultless. They have an insatiable taste for sensual
enjoyment, and also they have very little ability and care for
economic development and/or the activities necessary for business
ventures. They praise money and wealth for the immediate enjoyment
it brings them.
who engage themselves in economic activities, and their joy is to
increase their holdings of the wealth. <21>So as the
gathered more power and money, the
provided them with their objects of enjoyment. The money they spent
for these enjoyments was collected by the
Vaeshyas. Then the
Vipras became more and
more dependent upon the
Vaeshyas for money and
resources. Eventually, after the Renaissance and Industrial
Revolution, the era of the
Vaeshyas was firmly
exploit Shudras, and the
Vaeshyas exploit all
the other three active classes in society (the
Vipras). <23>In fact
these three classes in the era of the
Vaeshyas will all be reduced to Shudrahood. They all will
strive for their basic physiological and safety needs. They will
sacrifice all greater ideals for the mundane life. <24>They
all will become the slaves of the shrewd
<25>As it was explained,
Brahmins never became
the dominating class and will usually be exploited only slightly,
because they live simply and with only the minimum. They are not
drawn into the battle of material or intellectual domination.
