Labeling in the Social Imagination ~ Who Benefits?

Whenever the ruling elite want to control people they create a group, they label them and build an agenda around the label. In this way, they take control of the group and the people. How, because by their labeling they take control away from those that get labeled. They denude them. This happens to women, to men, to Christians, to Muslims, to immigrants and refugees, to the white conservative, to the freedom lover, to the poor, to the disabled, to the handicapped, the single mom, to seniors, to children, and to babies, fetuses and even LGBTs. They all get a label and are controlled by that label. And, when it is deemed necessary the controlling elite put a new twist on the label either as an upgrade or downgrade. Sadly, too many people actually believe their label is for their own good! Come on people, wake up!

Who benefits? The ruling elite benefit, they get to keep their identity and their position, their property, their license, their rules, their policies, their local ordinances, their zoning, their jurisdiction, and their wealth. Sure, they are labeled too but their label serves them as it controls all others. Ordinary people, the masses, have been punished by accepting a label since the fall.

A group of labeled people tried to escape this a long time ago. In their social imagination, they decided a new place, an open space could become a safe place from labels. But, the ruling elite and their labeling followed them here. This is what everyone has been and continues to fight against, Try as we might to run from the past and that label heaped on by more, we will eventually be consumed by in them in the end. The ruling elite is preparing their final label to use on everyone, to put everybody into the box, the same group with the same label. And, it will be the mark/label like no other, that of the beast.

By accepting their labels, we live in the flesh. By labeling people, we let them tell us who we are, and we live in the flesh. Don't accept their label today, or tomorrow. Stop living in the flesh. Be free from it, free indeed!

"The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. "So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. "I know that you are Abraham's descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word (His label written on our hearts) has no place in you.…John 8:35-37.

Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial ~ 1 COR 10:23.
