Psychopaths Ply Glittering Lies

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, most people would rather believe a glittering lie than an ugly truth, even when they know it is a lie! That is why tyranny will never go away. Those who seek tyranny, Thrasymachus’ “Great Men,” intelligent psychopaths, know that a glittering lie will gather the majority of people, even after it is proven a lie, so their mouths are full of glittering lies, lying to whomever they need to manipulate at the moment. When I was young I often fell for glittering lies. The less life a person has under their belt, the easier it is to convince them a glittering lie is truth, so much so that they will gladly lay down their life for it. There is noting a psychopath likes any better than manipulating someone into doing themselves and their interests great harm. Combine the two, people so deluded they willingly lay down their lives for some glittering lie, with people who get off on manipulating people into harming themselves, and you have the State.

It is just human nature to prefer a glittering lie. How many untold number of people have been caught by a glittering lie? Just those who bought into the glittering lie that you can run up your credit card account an live like a king number in the millions. We are awash with glittering lies, con men use them all the time. Whenever we are told something we want to believe, that a house’s roof can hold it’s foundation off the ground for instance, our minds say no, but we may so fervently want it to be true we will believe it with all out heart, as if by some magic that will make it so. Every snake oil salesman plied that trade.

It is undeniable that the men throughout history that are remembered as “Great Men” were universally psychopaths. From Alexander the great and Tamerlane to Hitler and Stalin, great men have been only too happy to slaughter countless human beings to get what they want. Cyrus the great was discovered to be the grandson of the king, rather than a sheep herder’s son, by the fact he was a psychopath. Coriolanus leading a Volscian army stopped to slaughter every man woman a child in a Latin town, while on his way to attack Rome, for no other reason than they were long time friends of Rome. The quality of the people Thrasymachus describes as the Great Men, are just psychopaths… manipulative, murdering and heartless. These are the people who are con men, killers, thieves, bureaucrats, prime ministers and Presidents.

History is replete with stories of people killing not only themselves, for a glittering lie, but even their own family as well! The killing fields of Cambodia is such an obvious example I have to mention it. Those children, and make no mistake that is what they were, children, fell for the glittering lie of a socialist utopia, all they had to do was eliminate the bad genes and human nature would transform into the Marxist ideal of one for all. Of course the grand experiment killed so many people the Marxists had to stop shooting people, reserving their bullets for escapees, and instead use clubs and bread bags to kill those with bad genes and ideas. Thirteen year old boys would go down a line of bound men in their forties and fifties, clubbing each in the back of the head, while thirteen year old girls would go down a different row of tied and helpless people, putting bread bags over their heads, one at a time until they stopped flinching, then move to the next.

The dross rises to the top. Since it is in the nature of psychopaths to love manipulating others, feeling themselves utterly superior to the lot of Mankind they naturally gravitate to government, either the hidden cave of bureaucracy where they can ply their machinations under the anonymity of the bureaucracy, or to pull the levers of power themselves. The most dangerous are the ones who will become the “Great Men.” They are the ones who seek to be the tyrant, to that end they will use any power at hand to achieve that goal. Morality has no meaning to a psychopath and so they will manipulate everyone around them until they have that power, then they will use it, visiting death, famine and suffering on humanity, in measure to their, “Greatness.”

Without changing human nature itself or coming up with a way to control that quality of humanity, tyranny will never go away. Psychopaths will always exist and the qualities of being a psychopath will not change, people will rather follow a glittering lie than an ugly truth, so unless our education system teaches our kids to recognize a glittering lie and ugly truth, and act accordingly, else change the role of government itself. Both are daunting because psychopaths are already well entrenched in government and have been since the first king. The only thing that has changed the nature of humanity, to follow an ugly truth and turn away from a glittering lie, is the capitalist mindset, which is why the elite so despise capitalism. It is not in their interests to change the way children are taught, unless it is to dumb them down further, nor is it in their interests to change the role of government, it is in their interests to keep us believing in glittering lies and turning away from ugly truths… and so, tyranny will always be with us.

Democracy’s Achilles Heel

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, people would rather believe fiction than the truth, especially in politics. Human beings have an innate ability to convince themselves of absurdities. Of course to believe a fiction over the truth is the path to tyranny, poverty and violence, but people believe what they want to believe, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. This is why democracy is so self destructive. Democracy within a republic is tempered but the elite always eventually become an aristocracy. As time goes on the people’s self delusion coupled with the elite’s misdirection combine to destroy any human government. We see this happening today with the election of Barak Obama and now the rise of Donald Trump.

Politicians become entrenched and hold power their whole lives just like the aristocracy of old. Like an aristocracy a ruling class rises up to hold power and pass it to their children. The Bush dynasty is one example but around the world political power is passed from father to son and daughter like an inheritance. Democracy is supposed to prevent such dynastic political power but instead democracy fosters it. One characteristic of any aristocracy is that they will evolve to oligarchy. They stop ruling for the benefit of the nation and start ruling for their own narrow self interests. The national interests are undermined by both a political class that has become aristocratic and then oligarchical.

An election is basically a beauty contest and in any beauty contest substance takes a back seat to appearance. In any beauty contest how the girl looks in a bikini is more important than her research into cancer. A political beauty contest is no different. A philosopher once said, put a beautiful man at a podium, let him speak with eloquence and a commanding voice and no matter the drivel he spouts, he will be called a genius, put another man, give him a drooping eye, high pitched voice and let spittle run from his mouth, and no matter the genius of his words he will be ridiculed a fool…

Empty catch phrases become a replacement for hard policy. Politicians understand the fact that people would rather believe a glittering lie rather than an ugly truth. Ugly truths require thought and energy while glittering lies delight the mind and require no commitment whatsoever. A simple mindless catchphrase like, “hope and change” can mean anything to anyone. To one it means restoration of constitutional principles and to another it means Marxism. The phrase’s definition depends on the listener, not the content, and so is mind candy without substance, which fits perfectly with our ability to convince ourselves of absurdities.

In the physical world self delusion quickly brings consequences. Jump from a cliff in an attempt to fly and it quickly leads to a horrible death, the consequences are immediate, but in politics, the consequences can be held off for a long time. It takes years of bad regulations to destroy an economy, years of gradually increasing intrusions to create tyranny and years of morality corroded by perversity to create social chaos. All of which are the results of self delusion of the electorate.

To believe what you want rather than what is, is a sure path to economic destruction, governmental tyranny and societal upheaval. You might want utopia but in Greek utopia means nowhere. Real solutions don’t come from catchphrases they take real work and sacrifice. We may want some hansom, articulate politician with a deep voice to solve all our problems, but that is the surest way to making those problems much much worse. Moreover, by falling to the same self delusion, over and over, we install over us a new aristocracy, with all the negative baggage that comes with an aristocracy. We have deluded ourselves for a very long time now and the consequences are becoming manifested, isn’t it time to stop believing in modern absurdities and start believing in genuine truth?

The Progressive Reaction to the Attack in Texas Says More About Progressives than Terrorists…

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, the recent attack on a free speech rally in Texas and more importantly, the reaction of the progressive unbiased media about it, show the depths progressives are willing to go to forward their agenda of total societal, economic and cultural collapse. Sounds nuts to say progressives seek the collapse of our civilization eh? It might… if you never listen to their rhetoric, observe their actions or understand the historic results of their policies, sadly, most people don’t. As I have written before, most people would rather believe a glittering lie, than an ugly truth, and many will actively try to shut up those who speak an ugly truth. So what we have is a people who are unwilling or perhaps unable, (due to the absurdly indoctrinating school system), to comprehend the very real danger our elite pose not only to us, but to our very civilization.

The progressives in media maintain a constant diatribe vilifying the victims of Islamofascist attacks for a decade now. Britain denies Pamela Geller a visa, because they claim her message is dangerous, but the message of Islamofascists… calling for the violent overthrow of Britain and the West, the subjugation and eventual extermination of Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists, isn’t? Today the call has gone out that those in Garland had it coming, which is essentially the same as claiming a rape victim had it coming, because she wore a short skirt. They demand we must not criticize those who openly avow the slaughter of Christians and the destruction of the West, and call for climate change deniers to be jailed for their opinions, which is clearly a direct assault on free speech, all the while proclaiming their love of free speech! Anyone who claims others cannot criticize a philosophy, by definition, must be allied with that philosophy, and so they too must also want those measures. Their rhetoric tells more about them and their intentions, than all the articles ever written, if only people would actually listen and comprehend their words.

Fabian socialists have as their foundational philosophy, that the world needs to be heated to the point of melting down, so they can reform it in a way that more suits their desires. That is not hyperbole but their own doctrine! I ask you… what would heat the world to the point of melting more than the resulting clash of religion, culture and society, the Islamofascists, (and progressives) advocate? The modern progressive movement is based on the Fabian socialist model. They don’t believe in the revolution to usher in socialism, which is where they break ranks from the Marxists, but a slow progress to socialism. They care nothing that socialism has always resulted in millions of deaths by starvation, death squads, and war. In their minds, the ends justify the means, moreover, most don’t believe that socialism has ever really been tried. The bloody history of the twentieth Century be damned.

The rhetoric from progressives in the media, government and academia are uniform in their condemnation of western values, western economics and western history. They despise our morality and attack it in every way and at every chance. To be ignorant of that requires a person be intentionally blind to what is right in front of them. Progressives hate free speech, but know they cannot openly say it, so they hide their intentions by saying, they love free speech but… you can’t offend certain groups. They love freedom but, it has its limits, they love the poor and hate the wealthy, even though they are the wealthy and their policies create more poor, free republics are run by imperialists and empires are run by freedom loving tyrants… the list of newspeak is endless. Their duplicitous rhetoric would make INGSOC blush.

Most people only want to live their lives in peace and make a buck or two to save for old age. Most are too busy to really observe what is actually happening around them, and so, whenever someone tastes an ugly truth, they spit it out and when someone else offers them glittering lies, they gobble them down. Glittering lies are like lead oxide however, it tastes sweet, but is poison. Moreover, to believe those ugly truths requires action, and who has time for that? What truth could be more ugly, than to hear the elite actually seek the destruction of the western way of life, to be replaced with a world wide socialist tyranny?

Those in the media that calls itself unbiased, and progressives in all political parties, love to claim anyone who listens to their words, comprehends the results of their actions and understands the historical precedents of their policies, is a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist. Yet they make the most absurd conspiracy theories up, like Hillary Clinton’s vast right wing conspiracy, conservatives hate the poor, anyone who disagrees with them are haters, the Koch brothers are evil, aliens started life on Earth, etc… Progressives have the most insane ideas, and if you think of it, wouldn’t the ideas of anyone who seeks to destroy our civilization, the civilization that has resulted in the most prosperity for the most people, unprecedented technological growth, coupled with the most liberty the world has ever known… have to be nuts?
