No two human beings are endowed with the same talent and ability and only a hopeless ideologue can believe everyone is as capable of success as everyone else. Call it social Darwinism but only those with the strength of will and the most ability can rise up amongst the common mass of people.
I've recently chastised another member of the forum for holding to a view that seemed harmless on its face but was wicked at its root. This strength of the will idea is, indeed, Social Darwinism / Nietzscheism. I recently came across an early 20th century hermetic (occult) text, The Kybalion (see: Wikipedia), that deifies Herbert Spencer, the father of Social Darwinism, by saying that he was the reincarnation of old thinkers such as the Greek Heraclitus. Now, while the doctrine of reincarnation is evil and false, there is some truth to this statement, as all of the seemingly modern ideas are not modern at all, but are in fact ancient. These ideas are occultic and can mostly be traced back to old egyptian (and other) ancient mystery schools and medieval kabbalah texts. These occult doctrines are sold to the public in the form of "self-help" books. Yes, I am saying that those books that seem like harmless quackery are in fact the doctrines of evil spirits that came to an ancient Egyptian before the time of Christ who drunk a mesmerizing potion, or a medieval kabbalist Jew who "channeled" spirits. This is why you have to be very careful with what you believe, because without knowing it you can be implictly inducted into a gnostic cult like Social Darwinism.
Your idea is false. The Epistle of James speaks about this doctrine:
Behold, now you that say: Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and there we will spend a year, and will traffic, and make our gain.  Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow.  For what is your life? It is a vapour which appeareth for a little while, and afterwards shall vanish away. For that you should say: If the Lord will, and if we shall live, we will do this or that.
In other words, one should not say, "I am by the strength of will going to earn riches and fame in the world", one should humble oneself before the Lord and say, "thy
will be done". This makes all the difference in the world. It's the difference between being a sinner and a saint. Your doctrine encourages willfulness, pride, godlessness, etc., whereas the one of James encourages obedience, humility, godliness, etc. One does not rise "through the ranks" by his own will. God decides whether or not you are going to "make it", and a lot of the time God allows people to "make it" in order to punish them for their willfulness and pride, and he rewards those that he loves not with wealth, but with poverty.
Did you know that both Hitler and another extremely influential 20th century figure, Cecil Rhodes, both are reported by some as having experienced visions / the influence of spirits before their rise to power? Look it up. Watch Hitler's speeches, the man was more or less possessed. And yet your doctrine of the will, der Wille zur Macht, would glorify people like Hitler and Napoleon. It is hero cultism, another ancient form of idolatry.
Good people, you should not be concerning yourselves with such fantasy wars as "Capitalism vs. Socialism". In reality, no such war is taking place. Do you think that the "capitalism" of the "republican" President Nixon was any different to the "socialism" of the "democrat" President Obama? Both presidents were serving the exact same group of people, and Satan by extension. It is Hegelian dilaectic
, i.e. the people who control the media and the debate fund both sides of the argument
in order to control all of the terms of the dialogue, so that they can keep people in safe bounds that they can control. If you are a "republican", they have TV shows and commodities just for you. If you are a "democrat", they have TV shows and commodities just for you. If you are a "capitalist", they have TV shows and commodities just for you. If you are a "socialist", they have TV shows and commodities just for you. Etc.
Don't fret over how Satan chooses to run his kingdom. It's always the same, even when the appearances change. The goal is and has always been getting people to worship anything that is not the True God. Things like rising unemployment rates and international wars ultimately do not matter
, they are secondary phenomenon. What is spiritual is primary, what is material is secondary. These material punishments all come from God, and it's to chastise people for their idolatries. Worship the Holy Trinity, and worry not about GDPs and unemployment %'s.
