The Ruling Classes, Elites, And Mobs

Inspired by my “What Is Individualism” post, I figured I should define the three main groups who oppose individualism. These people gain by undermining your sovereignty.

By understanding who these people are and what they want, you can better oppose them when they seek to enslave you.

Who are the Ruling Classes, and How You Can Fight Back?

Why people want to be ruled by the average politician is beyond me.

The ruling classes are the lawmakers, government, money printers, and psyop starters. They use their monopoly on force to subjugate the innocent, productive, and virtuous.

Virtuous leaders and reasonable governments do exist. But human history is full of corrupt, destructive rulers who abuse their power for personal gain.

What do the ruling classes want from you?

“England is the most class-ridden country under the sun. It is a land of snobbery and privilege, ruled largely by the old and silly.” – George Orwell

Resources and enslavement. Of course, these parasites steal your money through taxation. But theft is not enough for them. They always want your subjugation. They pass laws, regulations, and other measures to restrict your choice and make you dependent on them.

For example, the Federal Reserve has a monopoly on the money supply. You are dependent on the government’s resources. However, the Fed also prints money, increasing inflation and undermining your savings and wealth.

There are other examples. Education is not meant to teach you but to brainwash you into believing you need incompetent, corrupt people to tell you how to live. In general, the police don’t keep you safe. Instead, they enforce immoral, meaningless laws that give more control to our glorious leaders.

The ruling classes are never content with just theft. They need you enslaved and dependent on them for your energy, livelihood, and life. Power is what they ultimately seek.

How can you fight back against the ruling classes?

The ruling classes are the most dangerous to fight back against because they have laws and guns. If you break the law, you could face fines, jail, and even death if you resist.

Therefore, find legal ways to skirt the system, such as hiring a tax expert to reduce taxes.

Counter-economics is also a crucial component in fighting the ruling classes and has been essential to toppling regimes before.

From there, focus on achieving independence. Grow your food, learn self-defense, diversify your income, and strengthen your mind.

The ruling classes release criminals on the street, damage the supply chain, and devalue your money. Don’t rely on our broken, corrupt system for your well-being.

Understanding the Elites and Strategies for Resistance

The elites are the corporations, celebrities, and other personality types that siphon your time and attention. They have great wealth and influence.

What do the elites want from you?

Overall, the elites want your attention first and your money second. The elites distract you. The celebrities provide entertainment while the corporations pump you full of mediocre products.

While the ruling classes enslave you through the threat of force, the elites make you a zombie through comfort.

How can you fight the elites?

reinvest in community

Save your money, attention, and time. Reinvest these resources into yourself and your community.

The best way to defeat the elites is through self-control.

If you want to hurt certain corporations, like Amazon, then don’t purchase as many items through them. If you want to protest idiot celebrities, don’t watch their content or pay for their work.

I will concede not every company can be avoided or celebrity boycotted. For example, grocery stores can’t be avoided. But a little discernment is key. You have the final say, but cutting your consumption on non-necessities is a great starting point to getting your time, money, and attention back from the elites.

Lastly, not all elites are bad. Some corporations and celebrities are determined to create quality goods for their consumers. Therefore, focus on supporting honest entertainers and companies.

Identifying the Mob and Implementing Tactics to Remain an Individual

The mob is the average, weak individual multiplied. The mob loves to cancel others, burn cities, and defend evil elites and corrupt politicians.

They are the slaves and zombies, addicted to consumerism and entrapped by their emotional and spiritual brokenness.

What does the mob want from you?

The mob desires your will, subjugated to and in support of vice.

The mob wants you to degrade into a lifeless husk, swelling its numbers. The more numbers it has, the more justified weak individuals feel. Without your support, the mob loses power.

The porn addicts want you to be another porn addict so they can justify their addiction with numbers. The rioters want another person to help attack good people.

The mob feels justified, not in its understanding of moral principles or virtues, but in its numbers. And through these numbers, weak individuals massacre the virtuous, innocent, and productive.

How can you fight the mob?

“A mob’s always made up of people, no matter what. Mr. Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he was still a man. Every mob in every little Southern town is always made up of people you know–doesn’t say much for them, does it?”- Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

You start by refusing to join the mob. You refuse to believe the mainstream media and the official government narratives. You refuse to attack the virtuous, productive, and innocent. You refuse to waste your time arguing with emotion and sophistry.

The best way to avoid joining the mob is virtue. You must build yourself up, determine and live your values, help the innocent and virtuous,  and increase your productivity.

A productive, virtuous man is too capable and proud to join the mob.

Personal Independence: The Battle For Your Mind, Body, And Soul

Your enemies want you weak, addicted, and depressed. The more broken you are, the easier your enemies can manipulate and subjugate you. They profit from your weakness and dysfunction.

Thus, they oppose individualism. Any philosophy that puts the virtuous needs of the individual first seeks to liberate you. Your enemies cannot have that.

Realize you are in a battle for your mind, body, and soul.

You know your enemies.

Now you must fight to earn your freedom.


  1. Do you feel dependent on the ruling classes? Do you trust them? How do you feel about being in a society that wishes to be ruled by psychopaths?
  2. Have you ever been a part of the mob? Why did you join? What did you gain from it? Do you regret being there? And when I say mob, I don’t mean as in a riot. I mean any instance where you blindly followed the crowd.
  3. Do you have a budget? I suggest making one. Where do you usually waste your time and money? What can you do to reverse course?

Check out my Substack post, where I include articles and posts covering how to become more independent.

Please remember that it’s important to do the actionables. You’re not on this earth to simply read but to do. To become an individual, you must act more than you consume.
