142 reincarnation of pharaohism

“But he thought he saw in Ford’s use of men a reincarnation of pharaohism.”

Reincarnation is the belief that after a person dies, their spirit returns as another mortal form. Some people who believe in reincarnation believe the soul will return in another human form, while others believe that a person can be reincarnated as any other living creature.

A pharaoh is a supreme ancient Egyptian ruler. Pharaohism follows the same principles of totalitarianism, where the sole ruler has absolute power and control. Henry Ford also, according to J.P. Morgan, “resembled Seti I, the father of the great Ramses and the best-preserved mummy to have been unearthed from the necropolis of Thebes in the Valley of the Kings (Doctorow 143).”

Seti I   Henry Ford      

Ford’s use of men to assemble automobiles paralleled that of the pharaoh’s use of men to assemble the pyramids during ancient Egyptian times. In order to lower prices, Ford began using interchangeable parts, dividing up the labor, and reducing wasted effort. He followed these principles by adjusting the machinery so any part could fit any Model T. The machines became easy to use since the parts no longer had to be made by hand.  Similar to the meat packing industry, Henry Ford began bringing the work to his employees by using conveyor belts to save time and effort. Finally, he assigned each employee to one specific assignment. This shortened the amount of wasted time and allowed employees to specialize in one assignment.
