SHAME, SHAME THEY DON’T KNOW YOUR NAME
There are those among us who, when committing evil, neither recognize the shame of it nor experience any of the (normally) attendant feelings: guilt, embarrassment, and hopefully at some point, sorrow, that prompt repentance and reformation.
Nor do they accept, in some cases not even comprehending, that what they did was/is wrong, evil, abusive, or worse.
They are diagnosed (if and when they go for help) as “psychopaths”.
Psychopaths are described as “‘cold-hearted’ and calculating. They carefully plot their moves, and use aggression in a planned-out way to get what they want” (source).
Psychopathy is one of the primary “antisocial personality disorders” (the other, equally as well-known, is sociopathy, which is less lethal but still harmful).
With the worst cases, trying to negotiate with them is fruitless.
You only give them time to work more evil.
This ancient of conditions, aka “hard-hearted” and “seared (of) conscience,” is also described in the Bible:
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, (2 Timothy 3:2-4)
Their feet run to evil,
And they hasten to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity,
Devastation and destruction are in their highways. (Isaiah 59:7)
[They are] without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; (Romans 1:32)
Who delight in doing evil
And rejoice in the perversity of evil; (Proverbs 2:14)
And so on.
When unleashed, unchecked, and unaccountable to anyone, including each other because they are also disloyal and traitorous, psychopaths tear down family, community, state, and national safeguards to serve themselves.
They are not only lawless, they prod such behavior in others as it fits their agenda.
But although psychopaths know no shame they DO know the power of (fake) charm, that is, whatever greases the wheels of their greed and lust for power…
Psychopaths on the power path are the real existential threat to everyone, everywhere, regardless of any other differences among and between people.
THIS is the real good-versus-evil conflict.
AND WHAT OF THE REST OF US SUFFERING IN THEIR TOP-DOWN, BOTTOM-UP, INSIDE-OUT WORLD AS THEY WREST CONTROL?
I go back to a quote I featured in the previous post on how, in my view, we are processing various stages of grief over what has been done to our nation and world by them:
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. (Maya Angelou)
But if anyone missed the markers of such behavior the first–or second or third–time (and it is very easy to do so, given psychopaths’ expertise in propaganda and subterfuge), now is your time.
Now is your time to resist, if only possible in small ways such as non-violent protests, running for local offices if not national, informing others in your family or groups, voting (and working for the integrity of that right), intercessory prayer, and so on.
Few of us have big enough platforms to do a lot, then again, there is another saying:
It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
Because if even just one candle flickers, any amount of darkness is affected, exposed–and affirmed.
STEP NUMBER ONE
Also featured in the previous post were several tips when facing the enemy, in this case, psychopathy and its world-domination machinations:
Before you can understand (aka know] the enemy you have to admit there is one.
As any recovering victim of a psychopath can tell you, though, there is a tendency to downplay the danger especially in this day of “everybody–good, bad, and in-between– is a victim.”
Which too readily leads to…
…BUT PSYCHOPATHS CAN’T HELP IT! THEY WERE A VICTIM OF (fill in the blanks, ever more by day)! OR IT’S REALLY ALL SOMEBODY ELSE’S FAULT! SO GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT!
The statement above is not to discount or minimize life’s real traumas, some worse than others, that we all have.
But comes a point to recognize the bigger danger “outside,” our common enemy.
Such as, in this case, psychopaths seizing power who are sometimes the REASON we suffer trauma, and it becomes incumbent on us all to focus our attention on Priority One: survival–of people, cultures, nations, and civilization itself.
Think I’m being hyperbolic?
Read the news.
And, as far better observors than I are telling us just now, in every strata of society world-wide we seem to be at Priority One stage.
THE ADVANTAGES OF KNOWING YOUR ENEMY
But as much as grief, in this case due to realizing what’s really going on out there, can compel us to comfort ourselves in denial, facing the truth gives us several advantages when both overcoming it and overcoming psychopaths, their character as well as their strategies.
Because. They. Won’t. Stop.
So diligence must be our banner.
Knowledge, after all, is power as well as a good means of conquering evil sooner.
THE BETTER TO CONQUER YOU BY (2 ways)
Often cited these days, for example, in one plan of the takeover of not only America but also everywhere else as Communism seems to be a common objective, are the 12 rules as put forth in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals:
“Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with
the world around them. … Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take
power away from the Haves.” p.126
Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pps.127-134):
1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience
of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat…. [and] the collapse of communication.
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity,
anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are
blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more
obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it
infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for
only a limited time….”
8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
10. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every
positive has its negative.” The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will
maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the
reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”
11. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
12. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules
that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target
“…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’
When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you
zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very
soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’
“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on
the other.” (pps.127-134)
For another exmple: because many cite the takeover of Ameria as being from a Representative Republic to Socialism (next stop: Communism), we are also wise to understand the “ideological subversion” element of the takeover as delineated by an ex-KGB agent warning America back in 1971 what was already happening.
This presentation, which I have featured before on the blog, is of particular value in that it underscores that, most of the time, this kind of psychopathy-driven coup presents as the opposite of what we imagine, the ring-leaders not as the horrible monsters we imagine them to be like in the fairy tales, but quite the opposite (the better to con us by).
At least for awhile.
I would venture to say that most of the time, patience, subtlety, charm, and anything else that resembles the sheepskin-covering-the-wolf are the norm when it comes to the relentless, takeover agenda of psychopaths.
A TIME TO ACT
For those brand new to the exposure, congratulations, gear up, so to speak, and join the resistance in what way you can, small or big, because it is all necessary.
For the rest, these reminders of the nature and objectives of those who want all the control, money, and power can help clear the mind, check the emotions, and bolster the spirit, particularly because of the 24/7 advertising campaigns selling socialism on virtually every communications venue and utilizing nearly every trick of the propaganda trade.
The Big Lie(s) being the most commonly used.
If the psychopaths who would have it all, regardless (most of their followers are merely brain-washed and/or mind-controlled, as Bezmenov explains), only knew that the real End Game (see Revelation, Book of) is not the one they lust after, perhaps there might be some hope for them in reptentance and in turning. For they, themselves, have been conned by the Psychopath of psychopaths.
And he does take prisoners.
But we can’t hold our breath waiting.
However, if they or their, both witting and unwitting, followers do have a change of mind (only God knows if they are wholly given over to hard hearts or seared consciences), there is still time to right at least the personal wrongs, as there is for all of us to turn, or turn back, to God for our reasons*.
But time is getting short for the next big prophetic event, as Bible scholars tell us…
In the meantime, friends, let me encourage you to keep your candles lit.
And grab some more to pass around.
