From the wiki on "Teleology":
The broad spectrum of consequentialist ethics, of which utilitarianism is likely the most well-known, focuses on the end result or consequences, with such maxims as utilitarian philosopher John Stuart Mill’s “the greatest good for the greatest number”, or the maximum utility. Hence they are teleological in nature.
To assert that those who remain out of paradigm are committing some sort of "fraud" to benefit the "1%", to me, is teleological.
To do so, you are ascribing a “purpose” for their actions of which at the same time you believe they are not aware of.
You can't say that they are unaware of the truth (idiots/morons) and at the same time committing fraud. “Fraud” requires foreknowledge of wrong-doing which they do not ever exhibit. I'll point out as an example, the J6P in the post Roger put up below, where the guy is going all around making personal contributions to reduce the national "debt"... what a moron!
You CANNOT assert that this poor disgraced fellow is part of some purposeful "conspiracy" to benefit the 1%.
This assertion relies on a sort of “reverse maximum utility”; or perhaps “minimum utility” ie “utility for the 1%".
If this concept of "max utility" is unscientific/false in the one direction then it has to be false in the other direction too. I don't believe in a teleological “Invisible Hand” as a "force" for "good" or "bad".
Magic thinking is magic thinking.
What we are witnessing, ie this broad-based ignorance, can only be explained scientifically via cognitive science, and we know from cognitive research that people possess differing amounts of mathematical cognitive abilities.
They do not possess the necessary cognitive ability (certain math abilities) to discern truth in this matter; ie they are "stupid". I'm sorry for them but I have nothing to do with their disgrace, all I can do is point this out to others to the best of my feeble ability.
My views here I assert are scientifically skeptical.
