I have been giving a lot of thought lately, as to what I believe is really wrong with this country.
Or the world for that matter.
Why everything seems so completely ‘out of step’ with everything that you have always believed to be a ‘normal’ existence.
You just ‘know’ that things are not right, but just cannot put your finger on the real reasons why.
Some people may not have yet grasped the concept, that there are people who, on the surface, seem quite ordinary, affable even, but have no moral inhibitions whatsoever.
In fact, they do not possess a single shred of compassion, or an ounce of culpability.
As things currently stand, the default setting of the majority of any population, is a deep belief that the people they vote for, their political leaders, really do have good intentions.
Regardless of the scale of the ‘failures,’ of that political system, the leaders almost always rely upon that belief being upheld, thus effectively protecting themselves from the gallows.
As you have no doubt witnessed many times, the more damage and chaos the political leaders create while in power, the stronger the public call becomes to give even more money and power to the failed agency, so they can ‘prevent’ anything similar from ever happening again.
Does that sound at all familiar?
Politicians are very efficient at finding out how much they can really get away with, and to date, there are no visible signs they have even come close to the limits the majority of the British population are prepared to accept.
The often quoted ‘Tipping Point’.
Irrespective of the abject misery they create, the vast majority of people give them the benefit of the doubt, time and time again and dutifully continue in their support of that system.
This flawed belief that exists within what after all, are basically good people, has led to the genocide and needless wars of recent history, that continues unabated even today.
As we may yet witness very soon, as recent events lead this country once again to the very edge of oblivion.
Even if you still cannot accept the possibility that Sociopaths have effectively taken control of society, there is ample evidence to support it.
Did Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, Papa Doc and Pol Pot, for instance, sympathise with their victims or have any lasting feeling of guilt?
More recently, among Western leaders like Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Obama, Thatcher, Blair, Brown or Cameron, can you select just one who even comes close to having a single shred of empathy?
Not one of those listed above have admitted, nor shown any accountability, during or since their time in office.
If sociopaths have been able to make their way to the highest levels of the power structure, can you imagine the type of people who exist within the lower offices?
Do you honestly believe, that anyone who holds the reins of power at the top, do not have control over the levers of power everywhere else?
We live in a time when the population at large cannot make any visible headway, however hard they strive to achieve it, yet few seem to understand why.
And fewer still ever question it.
As an example, polls consistently indicate that education is a great concern to the general public, yet decade after decade, the education system gets gradually worse.
Why would you find that odd?
As I see it, if we continue believing our ‘benevolent’ political leaders, 2,000+ years of so-called civilization and enlightenment has not yet determined an effective way to transfer any useful knowledge to our children.
Try and consider what would happen, if we rid ourselves of our ingrained belief in their good intentions for a moment and look at other possibilities?
If our schools fail to achieve their goals over several decades, some elements in society, may see that as a ‘success’.
Inhibiting the critical thinking capacity of it’s future citizens, could only benefit a system geared towards obedience and serving the sociopaths that run it.
When selfish, irresponsible, illegal, immoral and irrational behaviour gets accepted as being ‘normal,’ we must conclude that the educational system is working exactly how the political leaders want.
Schools are only one example of this.
The multitude of state institutions that exist, ready and willing to provide every type of job for the right candidate (sociopath).
You should also consider that the state not only acts like a recruitment centre for sociopaths, but that sociopaths probably invented that system specifically to take advantage of those it claims to serve.
I can think of no better explanation for the existence of an system that fails on every ethical level, while encouraging sociopathic thinking at every turn, than the one that currently exists in this country.
Our quest to free ourselves from this, therefore, should not be seen as a battle between those who want freedom versus those who want control, but as a battle between normal people and the sociopaths in control.
I believe the world feels wrong, simply because it is run entirely by sociopaths.
When a country’s media is also geared towards discrediting and ridiculing all ideas which deviate from the bland and blinkered, alternative social commentary and media outlets will never be allowed to fully succeed either.
You have seen many examples of this recently, both online and in the mainstream media.
You may well recognise the terms ‘Establishment Gatekeepers,’ ‘Shills’ and ‘Trolls.’
*Hopefully, you may have also noticed the increasing numbers of ‘Psychologists’ and ‘Life Coaches’ appearing on social networks like Twitter.*
All are prominent, are usually well organised, very well funded and always relentless.
Without understanding the laws of physics, as a species we would have never benefited from technological developments.
It therefore follows, that without understanding how social systems are really run, we will never escape from the tyranny and oppression unleashed on us by the sociopaths we continue to vote in at every election.
