Watching Europe's political class squirm after Ireland's No vote in the Lisbon Treaty referendum last year, I couldn't help but feel that some of them know something we don't: there is an agenda that must be met. The Irish people could not be threatened into sealing the nEU Deal, yet it's business as usual http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/irish-parliament-clears-path-new-lisbon-referendum/article-177586 for the fanatical Eurocrats who are adamant nothing will get in their way. Incessant media hype is portending economic ruin lest Ireland vote 'correctly' at the second time of asking this fall.

It is evident, for those with eyes to see, that political discord between rival criminal cartels is purely for public consumption. Bread and circuses. Policy is not shaped by party politics. Decisions are made by a few: everyone else adjusts or starves. Weapons of financial mass destruction deployed by Central Bankers http://www.sott.net/articles/show/168137-Down-the-Rabbit-Hole-towards-a-New-Economic-World-Order and Disaster-Capitalists http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSF0e6oO_tw , under the guise of protecting the markets and improving the efficiency of the system, vacuum the wealth of the nations - the work people produce - into ever fewer hands.

While we share a symbiotic reality, mutually bound by rules and conventions, theirs is very different. It shadows ours, feeding off the real economy below by manipulating the supply of money http://www.sott.net/articles/show/169225-Money-Supply-Debt-Slavery-and-other-Manipulations , which private banks control. 'Market crashes' are built into the system. Rules designed to regulate economies and prevent volatility are periodically altered. Hysteria is induced in people through repeated media suggestion forecasting impending doom. In the ensuing panic brought on by shock, windows of opportunity open for the few to recast the rules http://www.ft.com/cms/s/7caf543e-8b13-11dd-b634-0000779fd18c,Authorised=false.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2F7caf543e-8b13-11dd-b634-0000779fd18c.html%3Fnclick_check%3D1&_i_referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sott.net%2Farticles%2Fshow%2F191229-Truth-to-Power-Psychopaths-Rule-Our-World&nclick_check=1 in their favour, extending and entrenching their vice on the real economy.

With all governments indebted to them and most ignorant of their existence, they foment chaos at will http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8756795263359807776 , incite or tranquillise populations as required, and maneuver legislation appropriate to their insatiable greed; small change here, incremental change there... until eventually the parameters are radically reset. In this diabolical, yet methodically scientific http://www.sott.net/articles/show/136090-Transmarginal-Inhibition manner they progress towards neutralising all resistance to the digitised global 'human pen.' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrITx7_tTT0

Politicians know not to bite the hand that feeds http://www.sott.net/articles/show/144872-Former-Italian-President-9-11-Carried-Out-By-Mossad-And-CIA- , lest they disappear down the memory hole. Mere pawns - useful idiots to master strategists - they're hired and fired as perception managers http://www.sott.net/articles/show/167857-Perception-Management-and-the-Economic-Spider-s-Web and public relations officers, to give the illusion of freedom of choice. With a supporting cast of trained thugs with cattle prods http://euro-police.noblogs.org/post/2008/11/24/police-to-get-10-000-taser-guns and secret armies in the wings http://empireburlesquenow.blogspot.com/2005/01/into-dark-pentagon-plan-to-foment.html , the political puppet show offers a veneer of credibility and welcome distraction from inconvenient truths.

The how has a why

Power is an addiction its abusers can neither comprehend nor arrest. They are programmed towards ruthless, hegemonic domination of the 'other'. A useful guide when treading the spider's web they weave: if you can name the institution or put a face to the name, then you're looking at a prop on the stage. The original instigators remain elusive. But unravelling the lies, the paper trail yields simple gems: the 'free market' really means freedom for the few to steal everything from the many. The game is rigged http://www.sott.net/articles/show/169667-Sleepwalking-our-way-to-hell so that the people lose either way.

"We decide something, put it out there, then wait for some time to see if something happens. If there is no big shouting and no rebellions, because most do not understand at all what was decided, then we continue - step by step - until there is no more resistance."

Jean-Claude Juncker, EU Council President in 2005, quoted in Der Spiegel 52/1999
Breathtaking, is it not? And Machiavellian. And immoral. And impetuously childish. How can such callous disregard for others be expressed by those elected to represent the will of the people? Europe, of all places, surely no longer tolerates such anti-democratic mendacity!

But what if it were possible to understand the bizarre behaviour of those who at once stupefy and betray us? Can the laws of nature shed any light on why persons we entrust with ever greater spheres of social control reach ever more depressing depths of hypocrisy and irresponsibility?

The world has only one problem - Psychopaths

Ponerology(*) http://www.ponerology.com/ is a branch of science drawing on psychology, biology and the social sciences. Born in the very setting which it studies, Political Ponerology, A Science of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes http://www.qfgpublishing.com/product_info.php?products_id=54&osCsid=874ussnv8em747lfpvm1aq17d3 was penned by a brilliant psychologist called Andrej Lobaczewski. Stealthily networking with colleagues in Poland and other Nazi and Soviet occupied countries during and after the Second World War, their research bore tremendously valuable fruit that both re-conceptualises and reinforces our understanding of the 'causal factors and processes of the genesis of moral and psycho-biological evil.'

The ponerogenesis of macrosocial phenomena - large scale evil - which constitutes the most important object of this book, appears to be subject to the same laws of nature that operate within human questions on an individual or small-group level. The role of persons with various psychological defects and anomalies of a clinically low level appears to be a perennial characteristic of such a phenomena.

Political Ponerology - p.31

(*) n. division of theology dealing with evil; theological doctrine of wickedness or evil; from the Greek: poneros, meaning 'evil'
These pioneers discovered a blind spot in our perception of the world, which only lent itself to study when historical circumstances transformed their countries from democracies to totalitarian systems, and the underlying pathological factors that produced Rule by Terror were unmasked.

Political Ponerology examines the nature of evil - a condition traditionally considered a theological matter - in light of modern medical knowledge of disease and psychopathy. It proceeds to map out the 'pathodynamics of psychopathology' - how the pathological influence of psychopaths infects conscience throughout society, transforming individuals' behaviour and rendering best intentions into their corrupted opposites. Presenting a panorama of the psychological reality, Ponerology's scientific acumen guides the reader through the previously uncharted dark underbelly of our world.

Lobaczewski & co found that a small but statistically constant 6% http://www.sott.net/articles/show/191213-Word-gets-around-Twilight-and-the-trick-of-the-psychopaths of the Polish population comprise various types of deviant personalities. A percentage of these were genetic psychopaths. Yes, you read that correctly. People are born without conscience. Though the least numerous of persons with psychological disorders, their role in 'ponerogenesis', the infection and spread of evil, is exceptionally great. These are true psychopaths; biological machines incapable of empathy. http://www.cassiopaea.com/cassiopaea/psychopath_2.htm

"It seems that conscience and feelings are related to the abstract concepts of 'future' and 'others.' It is 'spatio-temporal.' We can feel fear, sympathy, empathy, sadness, and so on because we can IMAGINE, in an abstract way, the future based on our own experiences in the past. We can 'predict' how others will react because we are able to 'see ourselves' in them, even though they are 'out there'. In other words, we can not only identify with others spatially, so to speak - but also temporally - in time. The psychopath does not seem to have this capacity

The Psychopath: The Mask of Sanity http://www.cassiopaea.com/cassiopaea/psychopath.htm - Research Project of the Quantum Future School

It follows that they do not understand what is meant by a 'fact' http://www.sott.net/articles/show/151631-Beyond-Insanity . Where we rely on facts to interpret reality, adjusting its parameters accordingly with each new fact, reality for psychopaths is whatever they declare it to be http://www.sott.net/articles/show/144145-Insiders-and-Reality . This was wonderfully demonstrated by a member of the Bush administration in an interview with journalist Ron Suskind:

In the summer of 2002, after I had written an article in Esquire that the White House didn't like about Bush's former communications director, Karen Hughes, I had a meeting with a senior adviser to Bush. He expressed the White House's displeasure, and then he told me something that at the time I didn't fully comprehend - but which I now believe gets to the very heart of the Bush presidency. The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality - judiciously, as you will - we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors ... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

From Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush http://www.sott.net/articles/show/178884-The-Pathological-Mind-Without-a-Doubt - New York Times magazine, October 17, 2004

While they promote certain ideologies vigorously, psychopaths themselves feel no attachment to the words they utter. Instead they calculate appropriate emotional responses for each situation, enabling them to manipulate one against another, each 'side' in any given conflict providing requisite cover for their hidden strategy. Thus shielded by a Mask of Sanity http://quantumfuture.net/store/sanity_1.PdF , the vast majority of them are successful, insofar as their true nature is not realised until it's too late.

Dr Robert Hare http://www.hare.org/ , renowned authority on psychopathology, isn't mincing his words when he labels this different type of human an "intra-species predator." His book Without Conscience cites case studies where psychopaths absorbed all attempts to 'cure' them by engaging in psychotherapy to learn new and better ways of manipulating. He once submitted a paper to a scientific journal that included EEGs from several groups of adult men performing a language task. The editor of the journal returned the paper saying, "Those EEGs couldn't have come from real people." In a sense, they didn't. They were the EEGs of psychopaths.

"More and more data are leading to the conclusion that psychopathy has a biological basis, and has many features of a disease."

Sabine Herpertz, psychiatrist at the RWTH-Aachen University, Germany
Quoted from Into the Mind of a Killer - Nature magazine, 15 March, 2001 http://www.uiowa.edu/~c036090/abbott.pdf

We unconsciously presume the universality of conscience, exposing ourselves to a predator that can exploit us in myriad ways by appealing to our conscience. Through their trademark pity ploy, psychopaths induct people to subvert the one distinguishing factor - conscience - against themselves! We are imprisoned in a web of guilt, shame and fear that is ultimately of our own making. Psychopaths need rarely resort to violence to get what they want in one-on-one interactions; the most successful ones keep their murderous impulses in check until they reach the halls of power where opportunities arise for committing mass murder by proxy. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mark-levine/george-bush-is-a-psychopa_b_38443.html

Naturally this can be difficult for some to acknowledge. We so desperately cling to a belief in the inherent goodness of everyone, leaving us blind to what is. But there exists a fundamental schism between our world and theirs that cannot be abridged. Martha Stout http://drmarthastout.gather.com/ , in her seminal book The Sociopath Next Door, concludes that the "Presence or absence of conscience is a deep human division, arguably more significant than intelligence, race, or even gender."

For a long time I would not believe it: they cannot be cured. They do not see themselves as diseased. Rather, we are the disease, the cure for which is full-spectrum warfare http://www.sott.net/articles/show/148333-Information-Operation-Roadmap-Part-1-Full-Spectrum-Information-Warfare levelled not against phantom enemies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTTgpsAs4_c , but against us.

All it takes is a handful

In the macrosocial phenomenon we shall later call 'pathocracy', a certain hereditary anomaly isolated as 'essential psychopathy'(*) is catalytically and causatively essential for the genesis and survival of large scale social evil.

(*) Born psychopaths

Political Ponerology - p.31

Recognising their own, psychopaths rapidly ascend the social scale and cluster around the governing levers of society, from where their malevolent influence upon whole societies metastasises. 'Negative selection' ensues whereby they actively groom and position more psychopaths and other pathological deviants of lesser degree amenable to their ends until a critical number of persons with pathological disorders is reached and a Pathocracy is born.

Pathocracy survives thanks to the feeling of being threatened by the society of normal people, as well as by other countries wherein various forms of the system of normal man persist. For the rulers, staying on top is therefore the classic problem of "to be or not to be." Thus the biological, psychological, moral and economic destruction of the majority of normal people becomes, for the pathocrats, a 'biological' necessity.

Many means serve this end, starting with concentration camps http://www.sott.net/articles/show/150501-Martial-Law-Inc- and including warfare with an obstinate, well-armed foe http://www.sott.net/articles/show/124308-Armageddon-Anyone-The-Truth-Behind-The-War-On-Terror who will devastate and debilitate the human power thrown at him, namely the very power jeopardizing pathocrats rule: the sons of normal man sent out to fight for an illusionary "noble cause." Once safely dead, the soldiers will then be decreed heroes to be revered in paeans, useful for raising a new generation faithful to the pathocracy and ever willing to go to their deaths to protect it.

Political Ponerology - p.146

Ultimately, they are terrified of the inherently creative nature of humanity. In their relentless drive to conquer this terror, they must subsume that which they cannot have by annihilating humanity, whose mere existence reminds them of their deficit daily.

They dream of a future in which they can revel according to their true nature without fear of persecution from 'those other people'. Government, media, corporations, education, intelligence agencies, ideologies, religions, social and political movements - nothing is immune to their influence and all are harnessed to their goal of world domination, unconsciously or otherwise. The only antidote to infection is knowledge of the disease and its pathodynamics.

It seems Mother Nature opted for species variety when in lieu of conscience, or rather, developmental-potential-towards-conscience, she endowed some with talents for preying on others' weaknesses. The collective traumatic experience of co-existence with our natural predator has finally brought our awareness to the brink of realising that we are not all human. Once awareness of the predator in our midst becomes widespread, the game is over. The psychopaths in power know this. Their shock tactics grow bolder http://www.sott.net/articles/show/170073-India-s-9-11-Who-was-Behind-the-Mumbai-Attacks- in their urgency to complete the agenda.

None but ourselves can free our minds

With no conscience to impede their hate-fuelled trajectory, the onus is on us to disentangle ourselves from the web by taking responsibility for our own actions. By choosing to believe their lies which promise relief from the pain, we repeatedly surrender our responsibility and give our power away. Thusly we play our part in the genesis of evil. If we are to reclaim this power, we must recognise the predators for what they are, for both self and others.

For now, history is on our side. Each time pathocracy coalesces, it only has one place to go: down. Wishful thinking, the Achilles heel of the Global Pathocracy, suggests it will meet a similar fate. What remains to be seen is how long we will dance with the devil until we remember that our suffering ends when we turn to face Truth.

Word gets around: Twilight and the trick of the psychopaths

Maasanova
Under the Radar Media

"Denver reveals the Government"


Note: The following is largely extracted from two articles: Twilight of the Psychopaths http://www.barrettforcongress.us/twilight.htm , by Dr. Kevin Barrett and The Trick of the Psychopath's http://www.sott.net/articles/show/148141-The-Trick-of-the-Psychopath-s-Trade-Make-Us-Believe-that-Evil-Comes-from-Others Trade by Silvia Cattori.

I make the effort to share this information because it gives me, at last, a plausible answer to a long-unanswered question: Why, no matter how much intelligent goodwill exists in the world, is there so much war, suffering and injustice? It doesn't seem to matter what creative plan, ideology, religion, or philosophy great minds come up with, nothing seems to improve our lot. Since the dawn of civilization, this pattern repeats itself over and over again. The answer is that civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilizations, our own included, have been built on slavery and mass murder. Psychopaths have played a disproportionate role in the development of civilization, because they are hard-wired to lie, kill, cheat, steal, torture, manipulate, and generally inflict great suffering on other humans without feeling any remorse, in order to establish their own sense of security through domination. The inventor of civilization - the first tribal chieftain who successfully brainwashed an army of controlled mass murderers - was almost certainly a genetic psychopath. Since that momentous discovery, psychopaths have enjoyed a significant advantage over non-psychopaths in the struggle for power in civilizational hierarchies - especially military hierarchies.

Behind the apparent insanity of contemporary history, is the actual insanity of psychopaths fighting to preserve their disproportionate power. And as their power grows ever-more-threatened, the psychopaths grow ever-more-desperate. We are witnessing the apotheosis of the overworld - the overlapping criminal syndicates that lurk above ordinary society and law just as the underworld lurks below it.

During the past fifty years, psychopaths have gained almost absolute control of all the branches of government. You can notice this if you observe carefully that no matter what illegal thing a modern politician does, no one will really take him to task. All of the so called scandals that have come up, any one of which would have taken down an authentic administration, are just farces played out for the public, to distract them, to make them think that the democracy is still working.

One of the main factors to consider in terms of how a society can be taken over by a group of pathological deviants is that the psychopaths' only limitation is the participation of susceptible individuals within that given society. Lobaczewski gives an average figure for the most active deviants of approximately 6% of a given population. (1% essential psychopaths and up to 5% other psychopathies and characteropathies.) The essential psychopath is at the center of the web. The others form the first tier of the psychopath's control system.

The next tier of such a system is composed of individuals who were born normal, but are either already warped by long-term exposure to psychopathic material via familial or social influences, or who, through psychic weakness have chosen to meet the demands of psychopathy for their own selfish ends. Numerically, according to Lobaczewski, this group is about 12% of a given population under normal conditions.

So approximately 18% of any given population is active in the creation and imposition of a Pathocracy. The 6% group constitutes the Pathocratic nobility and the 12% group forms the new bourgeoisie, whose economic situation is the most advantageous.

When you understand the true nature of psychopathic influence, that it is conscienceless, emotionless, selfish, cold and calculating, and devoid of any moral or ethical standards, you are horrified, but at the same time everything suddenly begins to makes sense. Our society is ever more soulless because the people who lead it and who set the example are soulless - they literally have no conscience.

In his book Political ponerology, Andrej Lobaczewski explains that clinical psychopaths enjoy advantages even in non-violent competitions to climb the ranks of social hierarchies. Because they can lie without remorse (and without the telltale physiological stress that is measured by lie detector tests), psychopaths can always say whatever is necessary to get what they want. In court, for example, psychopaths can tell extreme bald-faced lies in a plausible manner, while their sane opponents are handicapped by an emotional predisposition to remain within hailing distance of the truth. Too often, the judge or jury imagines that the truth must be somewhere in the middle, and then issues decisions that benefit the psychopath. As with judges and juries, so too with those charged with decisions concerning who to promote and who not to promote in corporate, military and governmental hierarchies. The result is that all hierarchies inevitably become top-heavy with psychopaths. Since psychopaths have no limitations on what they can or will do to get to the top, the ones in charge are generally pathological. It is not power that corrupts, it is that corrupt individuals seek power.

How can we distinguish between psychopaths and healthy people? What is the portrait of a true psychopath?

Such a dangerous question has almost never been successfully asked. The reason is because we mistakenly confuse healthy for normal. Human psychological diversity is the health of our race. There is no normal because healthy humans continuously evolve beyond all normalizing standards. The terrorism of searching through hierarchies for anyone deviating from normal is no different from witch hunts or Inquisitions. You must remember that hierarchies thrive on such low dramas, torturing victims until they confess to evil beliefs. Not so long ago the church and state ongoingly acquired significant income and property through witch hunts and Inquisitions. This continued for over two hundred and fifty years. Ten generations of Europeans understood pogrom as normal life. Let us not return to that nightmare. Testing for normal is guaranteed to backfire in our face. There is no normal. But there is conscience.

We have very little empirical evidence to support the idea that true psychopathy is the result of an abused childhood, and much empirical evidence to support that it is genetic. The neurobiological model offers us the greatest hope of being able to identify even the most devious psychopath. Other recent studies lead to similar results and conclusions: that psychopaths have great difficulty processing verbal and nonverbal affective (emotional) material, that they tend to confuse the emotional significance of events, and most importantly, that these deficits show up in brain scans! A missing internal connection between the feeling heart and the thinking brain is detectable.

Psychopaths are incapable of authentic deep emotions. In fact, when Robert Hare, a Canadian psychologist who spent his career studying psychopathy, did brain scans on psychopaths while showing them two sets of words, one set of neutral words with no emotional associations and a second set with emotionally charged words, while different areas of the brain lit up in the non-psychopathic control group, in the psychopaths, both sets were processed in the same area of the brain, the area that deals with language. They did not have an emotional reaction until they intellectually concluded that it would be better if they had one, and then they whipped up an emotional response just for show.

The simplest, clearest and truest portrait of the psychopath is given in the titles of three seminal works on the subject: Without Conscience http://www.amazon.com/Without-Conscience-Disturbing-World-Psychopaths/dp/1572304510/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1250160320&sr=8-1 by Robert Hare, The Mask of Sanity http://www.cassiopaea.org/cass/sanity_1.PdF by Hervey Cleckley, and Snakes in Suits http://www.amazon.com/Snakes-Suits-When-Psychopaths-Work/dp/0060837721 by Robert Hare and Paul Babiak. A psychopath is exactly that: conscienceless. The most important thing to remember is that this lack of conscience is hidden from view behind a mask of normality that is often so convincing that even experts are deceived. As a result, psychopaths become the Snakes in Suits that control our world.

Psychopaths lack a sense of remorse or empathy with others. They can be extremely charming and are experts at using talk to charm and hypnotize their prey. They are also irresponsible. Nothing is ever their fault; someone else or the world at large is always to blame for all of their problems or their mistakes. Martha Stout, in her book The Sociopath Next Door, identifies what she calls the pity ploy. Psychopaths use pity to manipulate. They convince you to give them one more chance, and to not tell anyone about what they have done. So another trait - and a very important one - is their ability to control the flow of information.

They also seem to have little real conception of past or future, living entirely for their immediate needs and desires. Because of the barren quality of their inner life, they are often seeking new thrills, anything from feeling the power of manipulating others to engaging in illegal activities simply for the rush of adrenaline.

Another trait of the psychopath is what Lobaczewski calls their special psychological knowledge of normal people. They have studied us. They know us better than we know ourselves. They are experts in knowing how to push our buttons, to use our emotions against us. But beyond that, they even seem to have some sort of hypnotic power over us. When we begin to get caught up in the web of the psychopath, our ability to think deteriorates, gets muddied. They seem to cast some sort of spell over us. It is only later when we are no longer in their presence, out of their spell, that the clarity of thought returns and we find ourselves wondering how it was that we were unable to respond or counter what they were doing.

Psychopaths learn to recognize each other in a crowd as early as childhood, and they develop an awareness of the existence of other individuals similar to themselves. They also become conscious of being of a different world from the majority of other people surrounding them. They view us from a certain distance.

Think about the ramifications of this statement: Psychopaths are, to some extent, self-aware as a group even in childhood! Recognizing their fundamental difference from the rest of humanity, their allegiance would be to others of their kind, that is, to other psychopaths.

Their own twisted sense of honor compels them to cheat and revile non-psychopaths and their values. In contradiction to the ideals of normal people, psychopaths feel breaking promises and agreements is normal behavior.

Not only do they covet possessions and power and feel they have the right to them just because they exist and can take them, but they gain special pleasure in usurping and taking from others; what they can plagiarize, swindle, and extort are fruits far sweeter than those they can earn through honest labor. They also learn very early how their personalities can have traumatizing effects on the personalities of non-psychopaths, and how to take advantage of this root of terror for purposes of achieving their goals.

So now, imagine how human beings who are totally in the dark about the presence of psychopaths can be easily deceived and manipulated by these individuals, gaining power in different countries, pretending to be loyal to the local populations while at the same time playing up obvious and easily discernible physical differences between groups (such as race, skin color, religion, etc). Psychologically normal humans would be set against one another on the basis of unimportant differences (think of Rwanda 1994, think of Israelis and Palestinians) while the deviants in power, with a fundamental difference from the rest of us, a lack of conscience, an inability to feel for another human being, reaped the benefits and pulled the strings.

We are seeing the final desperate power-grab or endgame of brutal, cunning gangs of CIA drug-runners and President-killers; money-laundering international bankers and their hit-men - economic and otherwise; corrupt military contractors and gung-ho generals; corporate predators and their political enablers; brainwashers and mind-rapists euphemistically known as psy-ops and PR specialists - in short, the whole crew of certifiable psychopaths running our so-called civilization. And they are running scared.

Why does the Pathocracy fear it is losing control? Because it is threatened by the spread of knowledge. The greatest fear of any psychopath is of being found out.

Psychopaths go through life knowing that they are completely different from other people. Deep down they know something is missing in them. They quickly learn to hide their lack of empathy, while carefully studying others' emotions so as to mimic normalcy while cold-bloodedly manipulating the normals.

Today, thanks to new information technologies, we are on the brink of unmasking the psychopaths and building a civilization of, by and for the healthy human being - a civilization without war, a civilization based on truth, a civilization in which the saintly few rather than the diabolical few would gravitate to positions of power. We already have the knowledge necessary to diagnose psychopathic personalities and keep them out of power. We have the knowledge necessary to dismantle the institutions in which psychopaths especially flourish - militaries, intelligence agencies, large corporations, and secret societies. We simply need to disseminate this knowledge, and the will to use it, as widely and as quickly as possible.

Until the knowledge and awareness of pathological human beings is given the attention it deserves and becomes part of the general knowledge of all human beings, there is no way that things can be changed in any way that is effective and long-lasting. If half the people agitating for truth or stopping the war or saving the earth would focus their efforts, time and money on exposing psychopathy, we might get somewhere.

One might ask if the weak point of our society has been our tolerance of psychopathic behavior? Our disbelief that someone could seem like an intelligent leader and still be acting deceptively on their own behalf without conscience? Or is it merely ignorance?

If the general voting public is not aware that there exists a category of people we sometimes perceive as almost human, who look like us, who work with us, who are found in every race, every culture, speaking every language, but who are lacking conscience, how can the general public take care to block them from taking over the hierarchies? General ignorance of psychopathology may prove to be the downfall of civilization. We stand by like grazing sheep as political/corporate elites throw armies of our innocent sons and daughters against fabricated enemies as a way of generating trillions in profits, vying against each other for pathological hegemony.

Nearly everyone who has been part of an organization working for social change has probably seen the same dynamic play out: The good and sincere work of many can be destroyed by the actions of one person. That doesn't bode well for bringing some sort of justice to the planet! In fact, if psychopaths dominate political hierarchies, is it any wonder that peaceful demonstrations have zero impact on the outcome of political decisions? Perhaps it is time to choose something other than massive, distant hierarchies as a way of governing ourselves?

So many efforts to provide essays, research reports, exposÚs and books to leaders so they might take the new information to heart and change their behavior have come to naught. For example, in the final paragraph of his revised edition of the book, The Party's Over, Richard Heinberg writes:

I still believe that if the people of the world can be helped to understand the situation we are in, the options available, and the consequences of the path we are currently on, then it is at least possible that they can be persuaded to undertake the considerable effort and sacrifice that will be entailed in a peaceful transition to a sustainable, locally based, decentralized, low-energy, resource-conserving social regime. But inspired leadership will be required.

And that is the just-murdered fantasy. There are no inspired leaders anymore. And in hierarchical structures there can't be. Assuming that you can elect men or women to office who will see reason and the light of day, and who will change and learn and grow, make compassionate decisions and take conscientious actions... is a foolish, childish dream. Continuing to dream it simply plays into psychopathic agendas.

Only when the 75% of humanity with a healthy conscience come to understand that we have a natural predator, a group of people who live amongst us, viewing us as powerless victims to be freely fed upon for achieving their inhuman ends, only then will we take the fierce and immediate actions needed to defend what is preciously human. Psychological deviants have to be removed from any position of power over people of conscience, period. People must be made aware that such individuals exist and must learn how to spot them and their manipulations. The hard part is that one must also struggle against those tendencies to mercy and kindness in oneself in order not to become prey.

The real problem is that the knowledge of psychopathy and how psychopaths rule the world has been effectively hidden. People do not have the adequate, nuanced knowledge they need to really make a change from the bottom up. Again and again, throughout history it has been meet the new boss, same as the old boss. If there is any work that is deserving of full time efforts and devotion for the sake of helping humanity in this present dark time, it is the study of psychopathy and the propagation of this information as far and wide and fast as possible.

There are only two things that can bring a psychopath under submission:

1. A bigger psychopath.

2. The non-violent, absolute refusal to submit to psychopathic controls no matter the consequences (non-violent noncompliance).

Let us choose path 2! If individuals simply sat down and refused to lift a hand to further one single aim of the psychopathic agenda, if people refused to pay taxes, if soldiers refused to fight, if government workers and corporate drones and prison guards refused to go to work, if doctors refused to treat psychopathic elites and their families, the whole system would grind to a screeching halt.

True change happens in the moment that a person becomes aware of psychopathy in all its chilling details. From this new awareness, the world looks different, and entirely new actions can be taken. Distinguishing between human and psychopathic qualities begins the foundation of responsibility upon which we have a real chance to create sustainable culture.

Simply an amazing read. Everything mentioned fits the observable reality we live in perfectly. Very well written and very well put together. MASS NON-VIOLENT NON-COMPLIANCE IS INFINITELY MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY GOVERNMENT OR STANDING ARMY. It is one of our only hopes.

Yes Sir, hope was given to the World trough a path that Gandi walked. He was victorious, and we will be.

The state is a predator and we are its prey

 read an interesting article on predator/prey relationships. The prey has much more evolutionary pressure than the predator. The prey evolves faster than the predator.

This also applies to the State/agorist relationship. The relationship between the parasite class and the productive class resembles a predator/prey relationship. The parasites are under no pressure to improve, but the productive workers are under constant pressure. Eventually, the productive class improves its abilities so much that it can overthrow the parasite class. I'm seriously considering the possibility that humanity has split into two separate sub-species, the parasite class and the predator class. Is the parasite class an evolutionary dead end? When the State collapses, the members of the parasite class will be forced to adapt or die.

I wonder if, at some point in the past, humans were the prey in a predator/prey relationship. This evolutionary pressure caused humans to evolve intelligence. Centuries/millennia of pro-State brainwashing caused further natural selection in favor of intelligence. It requires a lot of intelligence to keep your contradictory beliefs straight!

Even if some agorists wind up busted by the State, that will only provide pressure for other agorists to refine their methods. Defending your property is much easier than stealing! Defense is easier than offense.

The agorists should be able to evade their pro-State zombie predators. The pro-State trolls have the advantage of numbers, but the agorists will have the advantage of superior flexibility and intelligence. An agorist will be encumbered by far fewer false beliefs than the Statist. If I set up an agorist trading group and others follow my example, then some groups should successfully evade detection by the State. It isn't feasible to crack down on them all simultaneously, once 1000+ people are involved. The Internet will allow word of a crackdown to spread rapidly, giving others a warning so they may improve their methods.

The relationship between the State and productive workers resembles that of a predator/prey relationship. However, the wolf provides no illusion that he is looking out for the best interests of the deer. The State continues to exist because the productive workers have been conned into believing that the State is necessary.
