In light of current events, specifically the Theater of the Absurd 2016 Election, this passage jumped out at me this morning as I conducted my daily ritual of gratitude and evidence journaling, studying, and envisioning (more on that in another post):
Many people will scoff at the idea that there is an exact science of getting rich; holding the impression that the supply of wealth is limited, they will insist that social and governmental institutions must be changed before even any considerable number of people can acquire a competence.
But this is not true.
It is true that existing governments keep the masses in poverty, but this is because the masses do not think and act in the Certain Way.
If the masses begin to move forward as suggested in this book, neither governments nor industrial systems can check them; all systems must be modified to accommodate the forward movement.
If the people have the Advancing Mind, have the faith that they can become rich, and move forward with the fixed purpose to become rich, nothing can possibly keep them in poverty.
Individuals may enter upon the Certain Way at any time, and under any government, and make themselves rich; and when any considerable number of individuals does so under any government, they will cause the system to become so modified as to open the way for others.
The more people who get rich on the competitive plane, the worse for others; the more people who get rich on the creative plane, the better for others.
The economic salvation of the masses can only be accomplished by getting a large number of people to practice the scientific method set down in this book, and become rich. These will show others the way and inspire them with a desire for real life, with the faith that it can be attained, and with the purpose to attain it.
For the present, however, it is enough to know that neither the government under which you live, nor the capitalistic or competitive system of industry can keep you from getting rich. When you enter upon the creative plane of thought, you will rise above these things and become a citizen of another kingdom.
