In this video Stefan explains historical examples of states and empires and elaborates on the different classes – the ruling class, the slave/working class, the brutalising class and the propagandising class.
He talks about how excess productivity and the enclosure movement caused changes to our societies and what those changes were, plus their effects, including the industrial revolution.

The opposite of superstition and ideology – of statism – is philosophy.
I highly recommend this video (along with Stefan’s ‘The Story Of Your Enslavement‘ video) for anyone who is relatively new to this way of looking at the world and who wants to expand their perspective, develop clearer thinking and learn more about philosophy.
