Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could discover one cause of all the pain and discord in the world? Then all we would have to do is route it out. Not that people haven’t tried to find the single root problem. In the 18th Century, a nefarious little document called the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was published in Russia. This work of fiction convinced masses of ordinary people that the Jews were behind all their problems. Another antisemitic conspiracy theory involves the Rothschild family. The Rothschilds are and have long been a very wealthy family. In the 19th Century, they were the richest. Now they have to share that distinction with other wealthy families, such as the Waltons, the Kochs, the Rockefellers. Yet we still hear, ad nauseum, about the Rothschilds. They are blamed for all the economic woes of mankind. Another conspiracy theory popular on the internet is of the Illuminati, a group that existed in Bavaria in the 18th Century to resist the clerical forces of its time and have not existed for many years (unless someone decides to name a group after them for the glamor of it all).
Someone to Blame
I won’t bore you with an exhaustive list of all the conspiracy theories. Just pointing out that people have long sought to find a single cause for misery. The theory this blog is concerned with is not as popular as the ones above but is very energetically being promoted. The cause of human misery, asserts this theory, is the psychopath. Since psychopaths are thought to consist of only 1% of the population, we must be a very powerful and resourceful little group to have accomplished so much. BEWARE THE PSYCHOPATH, MY SON appears in today’s, March 9, 2017, issue of The Psychopathic Times, published by Tina Taylor. The article was written in 2015 by Clinton Callahan but republished. It is “extracted” from two other articles, The Twilight of the Psychopaths by Kevin Barrett and The Trick of the Psychopath’s Trade: Make Us Believe that Evil Comes from Others by Silvia Cattori. He also references Political Ponerology (a science of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes).
Without further ado, let us go through the first captioned article and see how the theory works. “Why, no matter how much intelligent goodwill exists in the world, is there so much war, suffering and injustice?” asks the author(s). The answer is not that mankind has defects and human nature often defeats many noble plants. No. “The answer is that civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths.” We created civilization? That’s a lot of credit to give us. Psychopaths took humanity out of the primordial slime into fancy high-rises? Psychopaths built civilizations that gave birth to the works of Shakespeare? Beethoven? How did we do it? “Psychopaths have played a disproportionate role in the development of civilization, because they are hard-wired to lie, kill, cheat, steal, torture, manipulate, and generally inflict great suffering on other humans without feeling any remorse, in order to establish their own sense of security through domination.” So civilization was created by lying, cheating, stealing, torture and manipulation? Many anthropologists think otherwise. They would credit mankind’s ability to cooperate. “The inventor of civilization – the first tribal chieftain who successfully brainwashed an army of controlled mass murderers – was almost certainly a genetic psychopath.”
It doesn’t seem as if our author knows much about primitive tribes. One of the most primitive available to modern man for study is the aborigines of Australia. But these were the most peaceful people one could imagine. Their society was non-hierarchical. Theft was unknown to these people. They could leave a possession unguarded without worry. It was only after a surplus was achieved that hierarchy and all the discord that goes with it first emerged. At least that’s what experts say. I’m not an expert. However, it does make sense that hierarchy could only exist when there is something to hoard and stockpile. As long as a tribe only gathered enough to survive, there was no way someone could take more than his share. It could have endangered the tribe. Experiments on animals have shown that the ability to own more than one needs at a time can change non-human animals as well. Chimps who learned how to operate a vending machine with tokens began to hoard the tokens. They also developed ulcers and other symptoms of anxiety.
|Meanwhile, the Twilight of Psychopaths book adds this pithy observation: “So-called conspiracy theorists, some of whom deserve the pejorative connotation of that much-abused term, often imagine that secret societies of Jews, Jesuits, bankers, communists, Bilderbergers, Muslim extremists, papists, and so on, are secretly controlling history, doing dastardly deeds, and/or threatening to take over the world. As a leading “conspiracy theorist” according to Wikipedia, I feel eminently qualified to offer an alternative conspiracy theory which, like the alternative conspiracy theory of 9/11, is both simpler and more accurate than the prevailing wisdom: The only conspiracy that matters is the conspiracy of the psychopaths against the rest of us.” So how come I’ve never been invited to any of those meetings?
Oh. I see. You have to join Skull and Bones first: “Consider how gangs and secret societies (psychopaths’ guilds in disguise) recruit new members. Some criminal gangs and satanist covens demand that candidates for admission commit a murder to “earn their stripes.” Skull and Bones, the Yale-based secret society that supplies the CIA with drug-runners, mind-rapists, child abusers and professional killers, requires neophytes to lie naked in a coffin and masturbate in front of older members while reciting the candidate’s entire sexual history.”
But this gets even better. “If ‘love’ is embedded in the Revolution Ron Paul heralds, that is because Dr. Paul — a kindly, soft-spoken physician who has delivered more than 4,000 babies — implicitly recognizes that government is the invention and tool of psychopaths, and therefore must be strictly limited in scope and subjected to a rigorous system of checks and balances, lest the psychopath’s tools, fear and hatred, replace love as the glue that binds society together.” That “kindly” Ron Paul would deprive every poor American of health care.
The author acknowledges, “The terrorism of searching through hierarchies for anyone deviating from normal is no different from witch hunts or Inquisitions. You must remember that hierarchies thrive on such low dramas, torturing victims until they confess to evil beliefs. Not so long ago the church and state ongoingly acquired significant income and property through witch hunts and Inquisitions. This continued for over two hundred and fifty years. Ten generations of Europeans understood pogrom as normal life. Let us not return to that nightmare. Testing for normal is guaranteed to backfire in our face. There is no normal. But there is conscience.” No. They won’t torture us into confessing our psychopathy. But they are still looking for those without conscience. He happens to know exactly how to find us.
Today, thanks to new information technologies, we are on the brink of unmasking the psychopaths and building a civilization of, by and for the healthy human being – a civilization without war, a civilization based on truth, a civilization in which the saintly few rather than the diabolical few would gravitate to positions of power. We already have the knowledge necessary to diagnose psychopathic personalities and keep them out of power. We have the knowledge necessary to dismantle the institutions in which psychopaths especially flourish – militaries, intelligence agencies, large corporations, and secret societies. We simply need to disseminate this knowledge, and the will to use it, as widely and as quickly as possible.
It seems there’s an application available to those who use Apple which can be downloaded for a price. It is described as a: “Psychopath detector tool. This simple tool will help you identify psychopaths around you. If you have a suspicion that someone you know — your boyfriend/girlfriend or boss — may have psychopathic tendencies, use this tool and answer the following 15 simple questions as best as you can.” Gosh! We ‘paths better watch out! In lieu of that, there’s always the good old brain scan. Armed with these tools, the article insists that humanity finally has the ability to rid itself of our menace. “If the general voting public is not aware that there exists a category of people we sometimes perceive as almost human,” (!almost human?!) “who look like us, who work with us, who are found in every race, every culture, speaking every language, but who are lacking conscience, how can the general public take care to block them from taking over the hierarchies? General ignorance of psychopathology may prove to be the downfall of civilization. We stand by like grazing sheep as political / corporate elites throw armies of our innocent sons and daughters against fabricated enemies as a way of generating trillions in profits, vying against each other for pathological hegemony.”
So the public can somehow enact a law to force all people in authority to take a brain scan in order to get rid of the psychopaths? How do they propose to do that? If Congress is already in the hands of psychopaths, how can they get them to pass such a law? Do you think the ACLU will stand by idly and allow such a witch hunt to take place? Yes, it still is a witch hunt even if the tools of detection of the witches are 100% accurate. However, “if psychopaths dominate political hierarchies, is it any wonder that peaceful demonstrations have zero impact on the outcome of political decisions?” But if peaceful demonstrations “have zero impact,” what does he propose?
Only when the 75% of humanity with a healthy conscience come to understand that we have a natural predator, a group of people who live amongst us, viewing us as powerless victims to be freely fed upon for achieving their inhuman ends, only then will we take the fierce and immediate actions needed to defend what is preciously human. Psychological deviants have to be removed from any position of power over people of conscience, period. People must be made aware that such individuals exist and must learn how to spot them and their manipulations. The hard part is that one must also struggle against those tendencies to mercy and kindness in oneself in order not to become prey.
Well, I guess we’re safe. When has 75% of the population ever agreed on anything. In case Mr. Callahan has failed to notice, people are deeply stupid. They are manipulated by the system whether that system was created by psychopaths or not. White supremacy is a very powerful tool for keeping the idiots in line. As long as someone is lower than (this idiot), the system is worth defending. What has been the greatest fear in passing generalized healthcare? That someone with less might grab more of the goodies that are available in only limited amount. We have only to look at the result of the election to see that. If only 1% of the population are psychopaths and (Callahan estimates) 6% have some psychopathic traits and work with the pure psychos than white and male supremacy can’t just be psychos!
Callahan wisely omitted the bizarre claims from Twilight enclosed in the table. Good idea. Because he might be accused of wearing a “mask of sanity,” himself.
The cure is worse than the disease. I agree that society is very wrongheaded. Blaming it on psychopaths is not only wrong. It is a ludicrous form of scapegoating. No! Jews are not the problem. Nor is the Illuminati. And nor is it psychopaths.
