Monarchy as an Ideal (Dreaming of Becoming Richer as a Fixation On Monarchical Values)

Fixation on money is the only way people with monarchic complex, today, can express their unconscious desire to be like a monarch. Money for them is a metaphoric tool to play at being a monarch. Of course, they will never have monarchic power, but at least they can try at becoming almost as rich as monarchs or at least to imitate the monarchs in their best moments of pizza-hamburger-coke-peacock happiness.

Money is a magic trick to make you feel like a stick when you are just sick. Money is a magic sting to make you feel like a king when you are just a string, and feel like a duke when you are no more than puke. Money is a magic tool to make you feel like a bull though you are only a fool. Money is a magic rod to transform your life into lovers’ grot when in actuality it is a mere fraud. Money is a magic nut to turn your fruitless rut into the performance of a stud. Money is a menu in the cookbook of life.

Today in U.S. we are all under the seniority/priority of the minority (less than two percent of the population who has a complex of being as powerful as monarchs were in pre-modern world but who can imitate this power only through their money-appropriations, possessions and multiplications. In other words, we are under the power of money-monarchs (money-archs).

These people are successful at mesmerizing the majority of population with their money-archic dreams (people made insecure in their survival are easily blinded by the images of the raining coins, billion dollar tornados, trillion dollar rainbow, or with crunching of banknotes fresh as girls’ flesh).

Rich entrepreneurs and manipulators of money (money-pulators) are people with monarchic complex but with the post-monarchic tools of operation. They are kind of restorers of monarchy with post-monarchic means. They are really a peculiar breed – monarchs by their aspirations but post-monarchs by the means to pursue a monarchic power. This is what money-monarchy (money-archy) is all about. To be post-monarchical monarchs is to be Bull Heights-of Microsoft empire, Duck Chained-of Hollyburden (Halliburton) kingdom, or Crush Bimbo-of the land of hate talk shows, that is to carry the crown, not only on, but also inside your head.

Restoring the spirit of monarchy is money’s unconscious dream. Everybody wants to feel like a monarch in a consumption society. Running lottery in a consumerist democracy is more important than elections. Money-dreamers’ (dreamoneyers’) daydream is to have the time and chance to drink latte or smoothies served in money-made cups while sitting inside their own castles of cream.

To gain social authority through money or through direct power is the very difference between the Soviet communists and their American money-arch counterparts. Both ways point to the nostalgia for the monarchic power as a way to cope with the dangerous uncertainty of the world. The American conservative revolution led by Cute Gingerrich in 1994 and the Russian communist revolution of 1917 – are similarly motivated by the desire to keep life under control – to transform life into a loaf in dreams (communism) or in reality (consumption/ property-ownership/property-accumulation society). Both revolutions are attempts to change the spiritual uncertainty into a despotic certainty of who is winning the struggle for domination and who is in charge. Both have tried to subdue the freedom of the world, to wipeout reliance on human alterity as an existential collaborator participating in decision-making.

In both countries the (monistic) despotism was created by the price of strangulating the participation of the alternative ideas in the political process (in Bushmerica conservatives managed to transform the democrats into conservative centrists). Money-archs (money monarchs) and ideological monarchs (ideo-narchs – Soviet communists) are identical in their panicky reactions on what they perceive as a “menace” of the smallest uncertainty, even a tiny lack in the absolute guarantee of the superiority of their power. For both types (money- or ideology-monarchs) any sharing of power to control and manipulate reality is worse than death – it is hell.

Despotic ideology is an idealist version of absolutism of money, and money is the sublime version of ideology. Money-archy is surrealistic monument to the means of survival crowned into becoming the meaning of life itself, a profanity anointed to the status of money-arch.
