What you and I consider popular is what I used as a target.  Through the scope, I took aim and fired.  I kept releasing the bullets until there was nothing but pieces scattered on the ground.  Then I picked them up and glued them together.  Piece by piece, the popular was rebuilt but this time with a beautiful intention. Like it or not, you and I were born inside a box of limited knowledge and without the awareness of its restricting disposition.  A factual and philosophical commentary, "A Beautiful Destruction" attempts to exemplify the limitations.  In specific, the unreasonable tides of knowledge within the oceans of information coined the popular culture and the collective intelligence. The constituents of the collective intelligence are the ideas, beliefs, wants, and knowledge most people have in common.  The collective intelligence is typically transferred by one generation to the next generation, and it will reflect the changes that occur within the popular culture. Popular culture can be understood as the dominant ideas, beliefs, wants, and knowledge the contemporary market and contemporary governments propagate.  Currently, they are promoting the consumer culture.  If the popular culture successfully indoctrinates the public, the values housed by the popular culture will merge with the collective intelligence. In the type of world we live in, the two heads mentioned teach most of what an individual knows.  Outside those two are teachers few and they do not have near the same influence.  All other givers of information are mice amongst titanic-size rhinoceroses.  If one doesn’t travel outside the influence of the giants, a better understanding is impossible to acquire, and to effort without the journey is like describing the outside of a box while trapped inside of it.  It just isn’t happening.  It’s very important to look from a distance at what types of ideas, beliefs, wants, and knowledge the popular culture and the collective intelligence infuse within the person because what they instil can sometimes be untruthful. Divided into three chapters, "A Beautiful Destruction" will address several of the notions that might not be completely accurate, and the focus will be on the market, government, the consumer culture, and the negative impact those three have on the person. Chapter 1: The Market and Me The practice of deprivation is used by the market.  The majority of a nation’s people are financially and socially held back. Divided into two parts, Chapter One is a must-read for anyone wondering why their financial and social situation is in the pits.  You’ll discover why the cost of living is so high, why wages are so low, why the savings account has been declining, the myth tied to a “nine-to-five”, the market conditions that influence an underdeveloped value system, the god of the filthy rich, and that god’s progeny. Chapter 2: Government and Me Constitutional and democratic governments are failing in their obligations.  The people they represent are treated as if they were idiots.  Some of the ideas discussed are the lie of private over public, the near death of democracy’s instruments, and the true nature of debt. Chapter 3: Designed to Become The built world daily tricks the public to ignore a higher state of awareness.  Most people are fooled to settle for so much less. "A Beautiful Destruction" presents a challenge to the status quo, but I’d like you to know that I do not challenge the whole.  There are good parts to the machine and it does have the potential to benefit all.  I’m only trying to express that the machine isn’t yet perfect.  All I wish to do is apply the wrench and fine-tune it.  Tell me--what’s wrong with that?
