The World is Run By Evil People

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, we normalize the world we live in, by believing that those who are powerful are good, while those who are evil are weak. Sadly that is exactly opposite of the truth. Those people who are evil control the levers of power while those who are good are subjects of evil. It is hard to face the facts that the planet we live on is ruled by evil people, by evil means, for evil ends. The attributes of people who are evil, selfish, self centered, egoistic, heartless, conniving, charismatic and ruthless, are exactly those that lead to political power. While our prisons are filled with stupid evil men with little power, our halls of congress, presidencies, prime ministers, Judges, etc… are filled with smart evil people. Those same evil people who run the world, love democracy, because we are so easy for them to manipulate. Once in awhile though, people do wake up and vote in someone who is not of that low caliber. When that happens the rest of the evil people will set themselves to destroy that aberration. Like they have Trump.

Why is this so? Why are most of our leaders evil? Because an election is nothing more than an empty beauty contest. It is never the one with merit who wins, it is the one who pleases the electorate the most. Place a man on a podium, give him a lisp, an ugly visage, stooping posture and high pitched voice, and though he speaks the wisdom of the ages, he will be derided a fool. Take another, make him tall, hansom, deep voice and charismatic presence, and though he speak utter nonsense he will be lauded a genius. That is because we judge more by our eyes then our minds and hearts. Instead of listening to the words we look at the speaker, instead of trying to understand the arguments for both sides, we follow the tall hansom man, and because we do we hand the reigns of power, over and over, to evil people.

Even though evil people are suited for politics, does that mean all politicians are evil? Of course not, not all politicians are evil just like not all prisoners in our jails are evil. Having said that, it must be admitted that the temptation of power to an evil person is like heroin to an addict. The desire for it is overwhelming. Power is magnetic to evil people. With power they can exist above the law, while at the same time, lower the rest of us beneath it’s protections. The few politicians who are in it to serve humanity, are very few and far between, and they are universally despised by the political establishment. Those who are not evil represent a mortal threat to those who are. The power evil usurps defines them, anyone who threatens that power must be dealt with. We are witnessing this first hand in the treatment of Trump.

How can we know if a politician is evil? The first method is how is he or she accepted by the political establishment? If they are beloved, held up as the smartest, wisest and most wonderful of people, you can rest assured that person is as evil as Satan himself. He or she will blend right in to the cesspool that is politics. If a politician is loathed, attacked for nothing, constantly ridiculed and we are told he or she is a fool that will bring down our democracy… you know for certain that politician is good. Evil people will treat a good person as a pariah while they will treat an evil person with respect and dignity. The elite who are mostly evil, respect another evil person because they know that person will cross any bridge then turn and burn it into the river, if they are offended. Treated with dignity because all evil people have easily bruised thin skinned egos. If their ego is bruised, an evil person will wax a grudge until they can destroy their tormentor, like they did Nixon for prosecuting Alger Hiss.

Good people usually are not drawn to power over other, they seek peace, equanimity, love and friendship for their own sake, while an evil person will also seek these things, but as a means to an end, not an end in and of themselves. A good person will tend to his or her own life and let others be. An evil person cannot allow others to simply be, the evil person must control everyone else. One facet of being evil, is that evil people hold others as fools to be manipulated into self harm, as the elite are doing in Europe with their policy of self genocide. Where a good person will avoid war an evil person desires it. The evil will eschew deterrence claiming it triggers an aggressor, all the time knowing full well that the weakness will encourage aggression, giving them what they want, war.

It is all important to understand the world we live in in order to make it better for our children. The US founding fathers knew the nature of the world and power, and attempted to control those evil men they knew are drawn to power. Over two hundred years of whittling away at it, the elite have managed to move us totally away from our Constitution, making it a joke. Why else do you think the elite laugh in our faces, like Nancy Pelosi did, when asked if this or that policy, law or regulation is “Constitutional.” They know our Constitution now means what ever the Hell they tell us it does, and that may change tomorrow, depending on the wants of the evil people in charge. Instead of judging with your eyes, judge with your mind, if a politician’s voice makes a shiver go down your leg, you have to understand you are judging with your eyes instead of your mind. Recognize that impossible pie in the sky promises are just means of manipulating you into acting against your own interests. In short… wake up and smell the coffee, our politicians are not good people, they do not work for our interests, they love human suffering and poverty, setting themselves to creating more of it. Judge with your mind instead of your eyes.

Evil Manipulators

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, the greatest victory for evil there is, is to use someone’s benevolence to do evil. It happens more than you might think. Malevolent people and institutions play on our good natures to undermine our intentions. They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions which is just a simplification of this scheme in play. If you think about it, it becomes obvious, evil has no qualms about perverting a good thing into bad, such is the nature of evil. Once you understand this and apply it, it becomes much harder for the diabolical to pervert your good intentions to evil, because you have become wise to it. This is why we all should pay attention, not to the intentions, stated of otherwise,, but to the likely outcome. That is the only way to guard against being manipulated by evil people into lowering the lot of Mankind.

History is filled with examples of good intentions turned bad. From Eve biting the apple to the welfare state, people have sought to improve their lives and the lives of their fellows, but the exact opposite came about. Their intentions were good and often noble but the results were evil. This only happens when we act without thinking. The Nazis used this tactic to get the German people to slaughter the innocent. A Nazi professor would walk into a room full of upper middle class youth, and show pictures of profoundly handicapped people and then ask, “would you want to live like this?” The unanimous answer form the rash youths, who had not lived a life yet and so were easily manipulated was, “NO!” In this way the Nazis used the German people’s compassion to murder millions of innocent people.

Some say listen to the heart, it will always tell you what is right, they are either wrong or manipulating us. The heart is an emotional organ. When we act on emotion and not logic bad outcomes are almost certain. This is one reason those who favor arbitrary rule so love the idea of democracy. They know people can be manipulated, especially in large numbers, by applying to their emotions. Democracy is nothing more than organized mob rule. Everyone knows a mob can be manipulated, only to destroy however, never to build. A mob can be wound into a frenzy then set upon some person, group or organization. The mob has no mind only raw emotion. After the fact, many who participated will be ashamed and regretful but too late, they allowed themselves to be manipulated, like a puppet.

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions is an old saying that has always been pertinent and always will be. In our own lives we seek a good, with the best of intentions, and it goes all wrong. You might want to help someone who is handicapped so you open the door for her. By doing so you have said, by your actions, they are incapable. Of course that was not your intention but that could be the message they get. Perhaps your actions legitimize someone else feelings of inadequacy, or maybe your actions result in the exact opposite of what you intend, but either way the results didn’t comport with your intentions. Intentions must be tempered with logic and reason before they can do good works.

There is a whole political movement dedicated to manipulating people, into acting against their own good and the common good, by using people’s good intentions and emotions. What is ostensibly directed at helping the poor actually creates more poor and locks those it is supposed to help into perpetual generational poverty. Universal health care is sold emotionally, everyone under it is supposed to get health care, but the results fall far short of the promise. This political movement has resulted in famines that killed untold millions of people, oppression in the name of equality that destroyed whole nations, wars to spread it’s ideology that killed and maimed millions more. Socialism and communism prey on our empathy, manipulate us through our sympathy and get us to act against our own and society’s interests with our benevolence.

Knowing a scam is underway is the first step to avoid it’s snare. It is up to us as rational maximizers to weigh the benefits against the costs of an action without falling for naked emotion. It is only by pragmatically looking at the historical results of various actions that we can truly judge them good or bad. When we blindly follow our intentions the results are almost certain to be bad. Only through acknowledging this and keeping it top of mind can we stop falling victim to evil manipulators, who will happily use our empathy, sympathy and benevolence to bring about evil in the world. It is by doing these things and not falling prey to evil manipulators that we can say we have become civilized. A barbarian is controlled by his emotion, a civilized human being acts on logic and pragmatism. Which are you?

Sincerely,

John Pepin
