A conjectural view of Atlantis, based on Plato's descriptions
What has built-up over the past generations since Blake is, mostly, an unconscious and implicit rejection of The System as a whole, and indeed of all systems.
Those who oppose the current dominant system (mainstream secular Leftism, and its agents of bureaucracy and the mass media) persist in offering as 'remedy' merely alternative systems - labelled as either intrinsically-good-systems or less-bad ones.
Yet what people really, deeply, desire is the end of systems - not some (allegedly) more expedient system...
And, at root, this deep desire is perfectly correct - since all systems lead (whether fast and direct, or more slowly and via loops) to the same end-point. All systems treat individuals as components, less-than-fully human, less-than-divine - hence all systems are alienating and coercive: all systems are un-free (since system has priority, and unless coercive and un-free the system will not function).
From this perspective, literally-ALL organisations, institutions, ideologies and religions - all laws and rules and principles and procedures - all mathematics and science - are merely-systems.
Yet (of course) this world is made and sustained by systems - that is by abstract, incomplete, biased mere-models. Even our criteria of what works, what is wanted, are expressed in terms of systems...! Man creates system, and then is enslaved by it.
Confronted by apparently hopeless odds, we first become resigned to system - then we try to love what cannot be avoided: we try to love our submission, our dehumanisation - we count-our-blessings and ignore the rest; we 'focus on the positives'... we seek distraction, displacement, some combination of rationalisation and intoxication.
That is, we try to suppress consciousness, one way or another. Which happens to be the very worst thing we could do - the only certain road to self-damnation (self-damnation being the only damnation).
We strive to be happy and willing servants of evil, actively working for the imposition of greater evil - because we see no other option; yet this cannot be done, since under-all we know what we are really doing. Hence the modern malaise, hopelessness, despair - self-hatred, slow suicide, a desperate self-damnation.
What transcends system is direct knowing of reality (not a systemic representation), love that is a personal relation (and not an abstraction), and creation (which comes from the real self apprehending and participating in God's creation).
Yet, there is nothing, no actual communication, that cannot be misrepresented as merely an alternative-system - and that has been the fate of Blake, and of those other (relatively few) persons over the past couple of centuries who grasped the same insight. It is so easy to fall-into systemising!
Yet what is needed is perfectly simple it is just that state of unsystematic knowing which we passively and unknowingly experienced as children (and the human race experienced before civilisation) - yet transformed by consciousness and knowledge into something active, chosen and purposive.
That's it! - it is all quite plain, quite easy -- albeit hard/ impossible to hold-onto consistently, in face of the world.
Hence the necessity of repentance; hence the necessity of Christ. But with Christ, everything necessary is possible.
