A Profoundly Sick Society
Psychopathy is a personality disorder identified by characteristics such as a lack of empathy and remorse, criminality, anti-social behaviour, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity and a parasitic lifestyle (2).
With that definition in mind, look around: the criminal, parasitic activities by bankers that have plunged millions into poverty; the destruction, war and death brought to countries in order that corporations profit by stealing resources; the dropping of atom bombs on innocent civilians in 1945 or the use of depleted uranium which again impacts innocent civilians; and the many other acts, from the use of death squads to false flag terror, that have brought untold misery to countless others just because powerholders wanted to hold onto power or to gain more power, or the wealthy wanted to hold onto their wealth or gain even more.This is a sicko society and in culture, books, magazines and more the aspects of the sociopath have taken over. Heroines and Heroes seem mean now and no longer moral whatsoever. Will I be crushed in this cold world where they have told people not to have anymore emotions? I need to find a kind country area again even for my soul. People scare me now. The area I live is the most reticent I've seen ever, but I have nightmares wondering if the rest of the world froze over emotionally while I was gone. A long distance friend and I talked about how people are so closed down. The emotions are gone. Everything is about saving face. Everything is about showing others up. She said, "It's getting worse, Peep!" I said, "I agreed!".
Politically our world grows worse and more dangerous. Knowing geo-politics can be a scary affair as many countries go to war. We now are in the time of ending 1984 war of Eurasian against Oceania. The fact we have been at wars now that have lasted longer then World War II is never questioned. No one ever asks when are the wars going to end. Anti-war protesters even on the Left have disappeared.
The other day the Hunger Games was on TV, the old movie, and I decided to watch it. I read the books out of curiosity not because they were good. "They already have the hunger games now, I said to my husband, it's kill or be killed even in the metaphorical sense". If those kids had any morals they would refuse to fight and sit down and say "Forget it all!" The books to me seemed to teach submission to the elites, even by the winners. Why didn't they flick off those cameras and sit down?"They did what they were told with the only "rebellion" being in the end where they both almost ate the poisonous berries at once. Was this movie brainwashing for today's millennials? The elites pit one group above each other. We are told to blame poor people, disabled, other races, 'those people" while the money masters laugh. Money is how they have gotten us to shred each other to bits, with 80% of the population crushed. I said, "I hope God ends this world before they ever have televised games on our TV like in that book and movie."
The Psychopaths are running this asylum.
"Again, bearing this definition in mind too, the acts mentioned above are not those of properly functioning social beings that contribute to a sense of communality, altruism, love or morality; quite the opposite in fact.
Yet this is the type of stuff that is rammed down our throats as constituting normality every day. Whether it’s the ‘Big Brother’ TV show or ‘The Apprentice’ show, these values are promoted day and night. The ‘Big Brother’ winner is the one who can survive and outdo the competition in terms of the duplicity and backstabbing involved along the way. The winner of ‘The Apprentice’ must be more aggressive, more duplicitous, more devious and cunning and more willing to trample over everyone else. And the winner is judged as such by a multi-millionaire who himself was cunning and ruthless enough to have made it to the top of the pile and has amassed millions for his own personal benefit. These are the role models to be admired and emulated!
These are the measures of success, of sanity, of normality.
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti"
Read the above paragrah, and think about how someone like Trump is now being taken seriously as a possible president. Sociopathy is loved in this country. Reading People magazine the other day, Trump was in it, and in his opulent living room of vomited Las Vegas style gold and marble pillars, he told the interviewer, how he hasn't cried since he was a child. That's scary to me.
Its true, they are pushing the mind set of psychopathy and sociopathy in our society. Are you confident enough? Are you strong enough? Are you good looking enough? Even women in fiction books, I have read for book groups, seem to be these strong and "silent" types untroubled by one emotion or guilt. You see it in the fashion magazines where the model stares out on the cover of Vogue with a cold steely stare. How mean can they look? It's not about being nice or kind! Even the focus on beauty and plastic surgery for a "beautiful body" is part of this, where the values for the vain take precedent over any loving kindness.
The three judges on all these contests on reality shows, is more brainwashing for people to be obedient to the system. After all you're always being MEASURED. Sociopaths do nothing but measure you to their bidding and it's a control mechanism. I always had this weird thought, they had three judges for the Inquisition holding rank over religious prisoners who refused the status quo, and now we have the three judge theme repeated over and over on our televisions. "Are you good enough"? Has anyone ever said, Who cares? and "Who are you to judge me? Some of the shows do group punishment and banishment instead. They judge everything from cooking to dance. This is the land of everything is a competition, and it's all about "winning" and being as "cut-throat" as possible and will bring out more sociopathic traits in people.
It isn't just TV. Everything is a competition now. One always has to be constantly "self improving" to be better then before. But it's not just competition with one's self but with others. Very few live anymore, all they do is "aspire" and scramble for the ladder. It's life not lived for its own sake but under the staring eye of the JUDGES, and not God either but Satan's servants. Ruthlessness, coldness, suppression of emotions, so your enemies can't win, is the code for that world, and it's taken over. It's everywhere in day to day society. People seem more and more afraid, they worry more about displeasing these JUDGES and "masters of society" then God.
Even the social media websites and rest have become about showing off and who has the "happiest" life. While I talk about real life and world events on my wall, this is rare, most are presenting life and "crafting" it even to be "seen". Remember the movie "The Truman show"? How many are changing their life for Facebook so the story reads nicer? Are we falling into a trap in this society where everything is about being noticed? I even have asked myself these questions. It worries me to see this disconnection that seems to be growing with people and where life itself has become a competition, of bucket lists and who has the best looking family or house. What if I wrote on Facebook, "Three days ago we went to the food pantry?" or "My radiator has a hole in it", would there be a tizzy? I wonder how many people grow more depressed going on Facebook for this reason.
True emotions, love and sharing are being destroyed with this garbage. We saw it ourselves in our narcissistic families, there is no love in a group where it's all about competition. We could not be real or express real emotions or feelings. Sadly these experiences are being replicated in this corrupt society. I think about the sickos who throw their own children or relatives away because they did not accomplish a certain socioeconomic status. In my family competition was everything. My mother was the proud queen of the ball for rising out of farm poverty and having a husband with a high level government job and she didn't let anyone forget it.
Workaholism rules in sociopathic world. I think about other people, one who I have walked away from recently whose entire life is all about their work and rising up. Work becomes their entire life and they craft a persona for it. Work places have become back-stab factories where it seems narcissists and those lacking a conscience hold more positions of power. Some companies and organizations actually seem more busy with gossip or investigating co-workers rather then doing the actual work. That is the fruit of psychopaths who use these things as social controls for their own power within these organizations. Can nice people succeed anymore? Maybe a few out there do but watching what happened to my husband in the world world, I think so less and less.
"Too many people have become “well adjusted to the values of a profoundly sick society,” whether residing in middle England, middle America or the gated communities of south Delhi or Mumbai. Humanity is being beaten down to be neurotic, vicious and to regard these traits as constituting normal, acceptable behaviour. Thanks to the media, this becomes engrained from an early age as comprising ‘common sense’, and those who question it are merely sneered at or ridiculed by a system that promotes a mass mindset immune to its own lies.
Whether this is all due to psychopathy, narcissism or ‘Machiavellian personalities’ is open to debate. Moreover, as implied at the outset, historical and sociological factors often compel usually decent people to act in terrible ways. The debate within academic sociology between structure and human agency is after all a very long one (5). Whatever the underlying reason, however, as a global community we are being force fed a diet of perverse values and destructive actions, all spuriously justified on the basis that ‘there is no alternative’ and ‘needs must’.
Corporate capitalism, consumerism, the new world order, a war on terror (or drugs or poverty, take your pick), neo-liberalism – call it what you will, but it’s all based on the filthy lie that those in control have wider humanity’s interests at heart. They don’t. By any means possible – war, murder, torture or propaganda, they seek to convince people otherwise. What price human life? None whatsoever for such people."
One huge disappointment for me was going out into the world and learning the people like my parents ruled this world. Maybe this happened to you. That was scary. Maybe too as ACONs we know too readily how this world really works. Too many are becoming evil to become successful in and to be with this world. There is a reason Jesus Christ preached that the world would hate those who followed God. Sadly it seems to be getting worse. This was a great article, and she lays out the truth about where this world is going.
2 Timothy 3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those tht are good. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasure more then lovers of God.
