If our ongoing warfare against ignorance and oppression is to result in a genuine commonwealth where the good of all members is served, we’ll have to take the long view and begin working toward entirely new institutions and structures. We must see ourselves as members of a new class; not just workers opposed to capitalists, not just the oppressed against the oppressors, but those engaged in lifelong personal self-transformation and seeking ultimate Higher Awareness.
Genuine engagement in this new form of class warfare can only begin when a small enlightened group of persons–having suffered under an oppressive form of rule and having prepared themselves for self-rule–create a new community.
This new society will arise out of the ashes of our present culture, led by persons who have freed themselves from all alluring myths and illusions, looked reality squarely in the face, and begun the long, hard effort to lay a solid foundation for a new society.
