Proletariat, Polletariat, Pandermath and Geniotariat

The proletariat is the class that has no ownership of the means of production and therefore must sell its wage labor to a capitalist class. The proletariat is an exploited class, and it evolves in the modern age into something new.

The polletariat is the class which is polled for its views on this or that “mis-creation” provided by an elite. (products, celebrities, politics etc.)

The polletariat does not own the “means of creativity” (both social and personal). Creativity now becomes the primary force in society that replaces the old concept of ’production’.

The polletariat is therefore condemned to fabricating and buying items of Mis-Creativity from a Mis-Creative class.

Mis-Creativity is the opposite of creativity, it includes creativity that is false, trivial, manipulative, addictive, distracting and more.

A pandermath (pandering-polymath) is a talented person mesmerized by mis-creativity and dis-art (art that serves consumerism) wanting to become an elite cadre for consumerism. Pandermaths mostly come from the polletariat. These are creative individuals who have developed their talents despite an education system that suppresses creativity. These people, who have haphazardly developed their skills, sell themselves to the system of Mis-Creativity to escape the suffering of the polletariat. Many pandermaths are aware they are doing something wrong and have pangs of conscience.

The Geniotariat is class of people in history that is defined by creativity, by Genio.  All people can be part of the Geniotariat, if they wish. The Geniotariat is an open class and the class that will only grow and transform everything, both economically and socially, and in the realm of personal behavior and happiness.

Creativity has now become the fundamental issue of life.

Old paradigms that focused on purely on “production” and economics are losing their pull.

Creativity has transcended many older issues and has assimilated them too.
Creativity covers not only economics and business but art, entertainment, media, education, psychology, self growth, government, the environment.
Invention and discovery are applied to all spheres of existence.

Old economics did not address many personal issues – moral code, freedom, identity, purpose, the spiritual, mental health…

Further, its programme was not very creative. But creativity gives us the thesis and strategy of Social Creativity which offers a radical new approach to changing the world, based upon the creativity of groups of people with a common overall purpose.

Social Creativity has its view of “power”, but this power is founded upon direct democracy and social diversity because creativity is ultimately driven by personal freedom. For the creative individual one needs power over conditions and people who would suppress and undermine activity. In Social Creativity we need “creative hegemony”, that is, the power to be creative, the power to recreate the world.

From Artisan and Artist to Worker, and back again to Artisan and Artist
When industrialism first appeared, the artisan and the artist were thrown into the ranks of the proletariat. They were stripped of their tools and shops and driven into factories. This led to a disconnection from production, and an unhappy heart that could no longer derive joy from truly creative work.

But history has now come full circle. The individual wants to be creative again, and the individual wants direct connection and control over her or his work – no matter what the situation is, small business or large corporation.

At the same time, in this age, the knowledge of creativity and its techniques is growing. A body of theory is expanding and laying the basis for mass creativity, far beyond the selective and elite creativity of today. Though education systems and corporations are holding back this new knowledge, it will eventually burst forth and overrun everything.

After this wake passes there will be left new views of work and life, organization and democracy, direct participation and control, education and psychology.

In a sense, Human history had gone in a great cycle. We are returning to an older age where the citizen was creative and in direct connection with its work.

At the same time the knowledge of creativity has grown, we are not simply returning to the technological state of the past. Now we can teach creativity to all, now we know a vast array of creative techniques to apply to problems. Creativity can be taught and supported. Organization and method will be revised to support innovation and imagination.

Millions, even billions will engage in creativity and will be happy once again.

People will no longer be disconnected and alienated from our creativity.
We are longer the proletariat forced into a dull existence, and we are longer the polletariat who votes for this or that meaningless item of consumption.

We are creative, and we are not the pandermath that puts its creativity at the service of consumerism.

We are the Geniotariat, the creative social group that serves no one but itself -- the class that ends all classes by making all people creative.

The Geniotariat frees the individual with personal creativity and frees society through Social Creativity.

The Geniotariat is the group that challenges the very notion of “intelligence” because it says that “genius” is available in all of us, and is spread throughout the Human race, and does not reside in the elite and shadowy margins of one percent of society.

Also, the Geniotariat says that world is in a crisis of creativity because it has very little creativity right now, and if we are going to solve our many problems we need as much creativity as we can marshal. And this can only be done by spreading creativity far and wide, and developing a rate of innovation 10, 20, 50 times what we see presently in fields and disciplines.
