The Owning of People




are only two types of people in the world: rulers and servants. People are born
to own or to be owned. It is only necessary to be able to recognise those who
are servants and those who are rulers.


Most who
read this are too conditioned to understand and so they will interpret it
politically. It has nothing to do with the family one was born into, one’s
social or political position or wealth. Those who are truly born to rule appear
in all walks of life. It is a matter solely for the individual.


people cannot accept responsibility for themselves or others. They might like
the privilege but they cannot handle the responsibility that goes with it.
Throughout history, every time a slave-class was emancipated, many freed slaves
chose to remain in servitude with their former owners and, of those who
gleefully took their freedom and departed, the majority returned within a short
space of time. Many who are natural servants are made unhappy by people trying
to teach them that they do not have to serve. When they get out of the safety
of serving, they do not like the wilderness in which they find themselves.


It is
necessary to be careful who you own. One does not want to own a lot of trash. I
do not own many unworthy people, but I own every worthy person I have ever come
upon whom I think I can use. I even own some who are born leaders. If you
cannot serve, you cannot rule. It is impossible and you should not try it. That
would be as meaningless as a vicar talking about sin; he knows nothing about it
if he has never had the courage to sin.


can be used, as the commander of an army may find it necessary to use
mercenaries to supplement his loyal followers. But, after the battle, a
sensible general will dispose of the mercenaries, even if he has to kill them.
People who are born to rule know when it is necessary to kill and they will not
flinch from doing it. To take another example, a besieged town: the inhabitants
are promised their lives if they surrender, but a competent besieger will not
keep that promise. It is a simple law of geometry that there is no way he can
march from that town that does not leave it at his back. To take responsibility
for certain people might mean eventually eliminating them. Those who are worthy
will remain my servants for ever.


Not all
my servants know that they are owned. Some have been placed in position for a
specific purpose, to be used when the need arises. In espionage terms they
would be called sleepers. When the time comes, they will perform because that
is why they were put there, at a carefully-chosen time and place in the past.
Owning someone does not mean that I control his or her every action; it means
that I do not need to.


are taught that they must know themselves. However, because of the political
connotations which have been falsely attached to this matter, few teachers dare
deal with the question and few pupils dare face the reality. Whether one is a
natural ruler or a natural servant is no hindrance to Occult or any other form
of progress. But inability or unwillingness to acknowledge one’s nature forms
the insurmountable barrier.
