In another of our “future book” series meditations, this entry will be a bit of a taste into what my 4th book will be about. Anti-Judgementalism Handbook, Anti-Humanism and whatever book 3 is going to be (I know, but I do not want to reveal it at this moment, but I have written on this topic already this year) will be coming before this one does, but in due time this one will emerge as one of the cornerstone pieces of Antihumanist theory about society.
In the wild, wolf packs have a ranking system; Alphas are the leaders, Betas are the followers and Omegas are the weaker members that need to be cared for by the remaining members of the pack. I am of the belief that these roles also exist within our own society, but with one small twist and what I will call the game-changer that exists only among the human society and certainly not among the animals; the Alpha Maker. The highest of the ranks. Let me explain this all in more detail so that it makes more sense.
Alphas in our society, much like in that of the wolf pack, are the leaders, the trail blazers, the ones people go to for advice, the strongest among us (not just in physical strength) and certainly the ones with the most name recognition within our groups. The Alphas carry their head high, lead their teams into any challenge and certainly are the ring leaders of their social groups, the glue that holds them together sometimes and most certainly there are quite a few situations that could not happen without them being present. Everyone within a group generally knows who that is. Alphas are the ones that come up with original ideas, the ones who help to champion group unity and rally around celebrating those achievements of others in the group or in pushing ideas from the Betas and Omegas within the group. I would have to say about 5% of people in society are Alphas, a Beta who leads a group of Betas is not an Alpha, just saying before talking about Betas.
Betas within the wolf packs are the workers, the ones that get very little name recognition, but are quintessential for the group to exist, because without Betas to act as buffers, a group full of Alphas would rip themselves apart (I have seen this firsthand), so having those that perform buffer roles within the groups is society are needed. Betas tend not to come up with many of their own ideas when it comes to groups, but they do tend to be far more creative than Alphas and can often tweak an Alpha’s idea into something a lot better and more manageable to them throw back at the Alphas for them to promote. Betas are the natural followers, you will not see Betas often put in positions of leaderships because either they do not desire it, or they lack the confidence and direction to go after and seek many opportunities. Betas make up over 65% of people in my view. Omegas have a vastly different makeup than Betas, which I will explain.
Now, Omegas are not often talked about in society because many people may view it as “insulting” to be classed in the lowest class on the ladder, but someone has to be there, and unfortunately there are A LOT of people who fit in this category, but as I will talk about in a little bit, there are ways to improve your status and move up. Omegas are the weaker followers, those that cannot seem to get their lives on track, those without will power, those stuck in a melancholic stupor constantly drowning in their own sorrow or dealing with overcoming the many life challenges that continue to beat them down every day. Unfortunately, Omegas are usually people during a specific phase of their lives (not to mention, to adults, all children are Omegas automatically, though they may have their own A,B,O hierarchy, to all adults, anyone under 18 does not even register on the adult hierarchy). We all at some point have gone through being an Omega (a lot of us as Children), and once moved up to Beta it is often impossible to be demoted back to Omega unless you give up on yourself. Omegas are constantly NEEDING others in order to get through life, Betas pity them, and Alphas feel the need to take them under their wing and kick them in the ass to get moving again. Omegas need help in order to get to Beta status because they often have no idea how to move through life. Omegas make us about 29% of the general population and the number is growing more and more with the uncertainties of the world.
Now, the newer class, the one that only exists among humans and certainly not the animals is the Alpha Maker. These 1% of the population (myself included) are those that make alphas (plain and simple). Alphas acknowledge other Alphas, but only Alpha Makers have the tools and skills to elevate other people from Omega to Alpha. These are the Top TOP dogs. I have helped many people climb the ladder of success into believing in their own lives, I have saved several people from ending their own lives to see them making the best of their lives now (without me in it now), and those are some of the sacrifices that Alpha Makers have to make. We take people under our wings in order to help give them the stability that they need to improve and live the best life, but often we get tossed to the side when it is all over because we were only needed for the ride, not the destination. We just have to accept that and move on.
Now, how does one move through the ranks? I will walk everyone through that briefly before finishing this meditation. Omegas can become Betas simply by gaining stability over their personal and mental situation. By gaining the control over your life, that can promote you to the rank of Beta where you can gain more confidence. Now, the process of going from Beta to Alpha is a longer process and often times will involve changing things about your personality. Alphas do not take shit from anyone. Alphas learn their lessons to be better, Alphas seek out the best for themselves and are constantly evolving. Alphas are the glue that holds certain social groups together that could not function without them. Alphas are leaders, you must also then be recognized as such by at least one other Alpha or by an Alpha Maker in order to gain that promotion. To move up to Alpha Maker, you much not only be recognized by another Alpha Maker, but have the work to prove it, who have you helped move up to the rank of Alpha? What was their live life as a Beta and how much better is it now that you have helped them to make it better? These are all important questions if you want the status of joining the Alpha Makers.
This book will be coming in the coming years…two more still to go before I being penning this one, but here is the base outline of my thoughts!
