Human nature and Human surroundings

Around one hundred years back during the Hawthorne studies the test workers were told that they would be rewarded/punished according to their productivity. The researchers were expecting an increased overall output but contrary to what they had anticipated the production actually went down because the group believed that the management might fire the less productive labors.
A century later such kind of response from any test group of any office seems not only impossible but also ridiculous and absurd.
Virginia Woolf once stated that around 1905 the human nature changed. So by examining the sharp contrast between the aforementioned scenarios maybe we can safely assert that human nature once again changed in around 1990 with the fall of communist block and rise of neo-liberalism.
But alas you’re a Marxist and you’re not allowed to believe in stuffs such as the existence of anything such as ‘human nature’!!!!!

Stories and new stories.

It’s often said that to be truly free man must see through the illusions of man made myths, legends and stories in order to see the reality more clearly.
But to be human itself means living in dual realities: the reality of personal objectivity and the reality of collective subjectivity.
When they cry out for freedom, they want the man to look beyond the later and focus on the former kinda reality.
But then that’s what makes human the most successful species on this planet, that humans can cooperate in with each other flexibly in large numbers.
God, religion, nations, money are some of those collective subjectivities that helped to bind humans towards a single common goal.
So I guess maybe freedom is not about giving up on subjective realities and relying on animal instincts but to know which mass illusion has served its purpose and when is the time to switch to the mass illusions of new stories such as human rights, liberty, fraternity, democracy, socialism, anarchism or individualism and at the same time keeping in mind the fact that such fables can’t be taken as absolute truth.
Afterall, there is a reason why one man is no match for a lion but a clan of mere hundred men can exterminate the entire lion population in its territory.

Species and species 

​Ever since the ‘agricultural revolution’ the elite made sure that only the surveil masses get to survive. The defiant and non compliant ones were either eliminated or themselves became the part of the ruling minority. 

Somewhat like chickens and cattles in captivity who have outnumbered humans in population cause men selectively bred them and allowed only the obedient and surveil to survive while those in the 


wild kept getting extinct. 

So I guess it’s right to assume pretty soon we are going to have two new species evolving from human the superior, intelligent and overmen elites and the surveil, less intelligent and obedient working class.
