Oh, V. Arnold – I would so miss you — looking forward to your comments and observations.. and often the repartee with our host, Raul. The two of you raise the level of this blog to an amazing degree. I feel exactly like you do about the lack of hope for our sad world… but please don’t leave us without your comments. Somehow there is something beautiful about finding like-minded souls to share the angst. You are so appreciated.
Dr D – Jimmy is not ‘far left’ whatever the hell that even means. Jimmy Is sane, And much like a NORMAL democrat (i.e., 0n the left) was 30 or 40 years ago. You don’t recognize it? Far left is another cia-generated word/thought-form. They have been making up self-denigrating crap since 1948.
Tony Smyth – the poison so much of the west has imbibed is psychopathy.
Oh, Happy Birthday, V. Arnold! Glad to hear it was a good one with friends. Wishing you many more… and no, that is not a curse!! Blessings on you and yours.
I second that. Thank you Ilargi for this wonderful site as it tracks our collapse. Good to have friends along for the ride.
And thank you, V. Arnold, for all your insightful comments. I look forward to them every day. You show great compassion. I have left the US too so understand that you have a greater view of the whole show from outside…. I consider you a brother.
Thanks, Diogenes. I have been wondering if people would figure this out. It’s getting so obvious now. Have been studying this closely for a couple of years. Ole gets it IN ADVANCE by studying the CLUES left behind at each event. He has, so far, predicted 5 of these events, including Manchester – based on clues left at the scene and followup clues, like the ads at CRISIS-SOLUTIONS . com (look at it). The blood-swath on the floor of the Bataclan was the symbol for the Brussels airport (the next staged event). These are all fingerprints of masonic activities – especially the telegraphing of the upcoming event at each of these. In THEIR minds, if they SHOW us what they are going to do, and no one objects (WTF??), then they have passed the karma from themselves to the victims. You have to understand you are dealing with psychopaths. This is how they ‘think’.
Hey, Diogenes – you want a kicker? The meeting of the psychopaths in Chantilly… did you know that obama and killery were called to the Bilderberg meeting at that same location on the evening of June 7, 2008, whereupon, Killery was told ‘she was next’ – NOT this time? This date is the ann’y of RFK’s murder by these same groups.
You can’t even make this crap up…..
Merry Christmas, Raul – in the truest spirit of this season. Thank you for keeping the faith there in Greece and demonstrating what is honorable in our species.
Thanks, Roel – your heart shines through. It is very encouraging to see more written about the source of the problem. Sociopaths/Psychopaths. The litany, mentioned above, of failed states and empires makes the problem very apparent. Countries, like smaller organizations and families, are all vulnerable. Psychopaths insinuate themselves into things and invert the original purpose of the thing. The change can be so subtle that few notice that the original claims to legitimacy have been hollowed out and the organization is now functioning as the obverse of it’s stated intention or purpose. Like your observation that NATO is now the problem and not the answer. Think of all the established religions you know about and how they have perverted their claim to divinity. These beings have always been with us but we used to be better able to recognize them and call them out.
And the worst part of dealing with them – they do not give up and go away. Those who are born with this condition, are very capable of turning normal people into psychopathic thinking/mimicking beings. See “Without Conscience” by Robert Hare or “Political Ponerology” by Andrew Lobacziewski. Poneros means ‘evil’. Psychological evil. We ignore this reality at our own peril.
So thank you again for talking about the hidden danger that no one recognizes.
Oh Roel – my tears are streaming… for you. She is safe now and pain free. There is continuity in consciousness. She is still with you and you will be reunited. Everything she taught you and the love she showed you, is still within you. I feel that I know after having met you and Nic in Florence (and Nicole again in Vancouver) and I love you both. You are showing us the heart of compassion and we will stand by you in sympathy and love. Continue to take your love of humanity to the people – it honors both you and your Mother. I know she is very proud of having a son that is willing to put his life at the service of others. It is what we are here to do… Service to Others. May you find comfort in the love of family and friends and know that your contribution to humanity does not go unheeded.
Thanks, Raul! I needed to hear that… I will be more alert to provocative articles. Take care of yourself over there….
The picture we are looking at may be even murkier than we think… I just read a disturbing article by F. Wm. Engdahl who usually makes sense and has provided accurate analysis for years.
Something stinks very bad about Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and the entire Greek mess that has been playing out since the election victory of the nominally pro-Greek Syriza Party in January. I am coming to the reluctant conclusion that far from being the champion of the hapless Greek people, Varoufakis is part of a far larger and very dirty game.
Would be curious as to the reaction of the voices here to this point of view.
This is such an important observation. There are upwards of 6% of the population that are born Essential Psychopathic. That’s a lot of people. Worse, though, is that this condition (the term anti-social personality disorder has morphed into psychopathy recently – very little difference in the traits of a sociopath and a psychopath) is the ONLY pathological condition where the essential psychopath can influence normal humans into thinking the way they do. The process is called ponerization (poneros is a Greek word for evil). http://www.ponerology.com has a lot of info on this. The seminal work on this is available online as a free .pdf https://www.quantumfuture.net/store/sanity_1.PdF – The Mask of Sanity, written in the early 1940’s.
The process can be seen in the lead-up to WW II, in Germany especially. Now you can clearly see it in the U.S. The cheerleaders for pathological thinking coerce or persuade or con normal thinking humans into adopting their thinking patterns as required to do well in the society. The ponerized are not psychopathic by birth but will look like it from their actions/thinking.
The bottom-line description of a psychopath is lack of CONSCIENCE. All the other behaviors devolve from that fact. Brain scans show a lack of connection between the amygdala and the frontal cortex. There is no cure and no treatment for these people. They are essentially human predators and they feed off of the negative emotions they stir up. It gives them pleasure to sense the power they have over others. The book Political Ponerology details the process http://www.ponerology.com – it was written by (underground) Polish psychiatrists during Stalins rule.
A most recent text is Without Conscience by Robert Hare – the list Ilargi posted of traits is taken from this book and research.
This IS what we are seeing… the rule of psychopaths – pathocracy. People need to wake up to this phenomena as a p-path cannot be reasoned with or appealed to in any normal way. They are incapable of ‘feeling your pain’ or applying common sense or empathy. They are not just in positions of power but are represented world-wide in your cohort of friends, neighbors and family members. They can feign interest in you but it is a MASK.
Hi to our hosts, Nicole and Ilargi and to all readers and commentors here-
been following this site for years and I too miss the old format. Maybe your last idea, Nic, would be good. A General or Open thread where we could all jump in. We did a pretty good job of keeping the ideas separate when need-be. In fact, I think we came up with some very interesting insights when seeing different events/ideas back-to-back. All of a sudden, some connections of things pop out when people muse about this or that.
There are great sites out there for “lifeboat” issues and hopefully our folks on here are finding them. This site is also stronger on the analysis of ideas and events – putting events into a more integrated picture so that underlying principles are evident. The perspective on how all of this is affecting the world at large is very important since lots of us (US citizens especially) are working hard at NOT being isolationista’s. I, for one, really appreciate the world view we are afforded here. Our writers have global experience and acute insight into how things “work” (or not, as the case may be).
I would love to see the added OPEN thread where we can find each other again. I miss MANY of you.
I am back in Northern California again, Nicole. Hope we get a chance to meet up again.
I am sure it’s here to stay too. Plenty of people need hand-holding. My comment was directed to keeping this BS to a minimum on THIS site – which has been grounded in REASON.
Oh, BTW –
The issue comes down to hearing the explosive “good news”.
is soooooooo far off-base. YOUR issue may come down to this silliness, but OUR’S does not. It comes down to collapsing planet and resources.. one of the things that these stupid ‘religions’ NEVER do anything about but make things worse… like we OWN all creation. What nonsense.
Trolls or not – please take this stuff up somewhere else. Plenty of venues online for people who WANT to hear YOUR GOOD NEWS. Stop being so adolescent. This is NOT the new site Ash promised.. take this religiosity to that site.
Sorry to see a member of the writers group of this blog and some commenters veer so far into religious babble. That’s what it is. Babble.
Like some have said, “Been there, done that”. I had, as a child, great ‘faith’ and believed in the RCC – even to the point of wanting to be a nun! When I discussed that with the head-nun of my high school, she worked VERY hard to talk me OUT OF IT. She left the convent a couple of years later. She did not mention nun-rape nor child abuse. I had to learn about that on my own.
ALL religions devolve into this. The moral motivation vanishes pretty quickly after the ‘founders’ passing – e.g., Saul of Tarsus… what an ignoble, misogynist crank.
Major creation MYTHS are very similar across religions – what does this tell you, Ash?? All based on the same inherent HUMAN myth-world. Take the ennobling parts of the myths and reject the formal structure of authority and control that all religions DEMAND. They require you to reject your own self-determination and buy your way to redemption. BS.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and dining with Stoneleigh and Ilargi. They are very realistic, compassionate, grounded pragmatists about the state of things. They have, lucky for us, not devolved into magical thinking to flesh out their world-view. We have come through the Enlightenment. We remember it. We want to live in a world that is dominated by rational thought not dogmatism and superstition. The BASIS of ALL religions is SUPERSTITION.
These myopic, cruel, humanity-hating religions are the main reason we are where we are. What other organization in the world has a 2,000 year history – but the RCC? Drug money-laundering, pederast org that it is. It controls a LOT more of what happens in the world than we realize. They have been in league with the ruling families and are considered the financial arm of European royalty.
I don’t even want to list the other ills foisted upon humanity by religion – like withholding family planning ability to vast swaths of Earth so that we have a population that is not sustainable… the list is too long. Start with year 34 AD and move forward through pogroms, Inquisitions and witch-burnings…. Pretty horrible track record for a RELIGION.
Sorry – rant off… Just had to speak up and defend rational thought on here. It’s what we count on. People that want to ramble on about their personal relationship with ‘god’ need to go do that somewhere else. It’s all just hot air.
Hello Fellow-travelers…. I read much (for years now) on here and comment little. Most of you say it better than I can. We left the US almost 7 years ago to live a life with more integrity. Sick of paying for war although almost everywhere you go there are dues to be paid – and war often ends up with the kitty.
We continue to try from outside the country to speak to these facts and inform our loved ones of major change coming. Even those who have been affected by bank and investment fraud, do not want to hear any more analysis from us. I have always sought out the truth (even when it hurts) and unwittingly played the role of Cassandra to those around me. If you can keep your ego out of the equation and not get too heartbroken, this is still a valuable role to play. Someone has to do it. We ARE responsible for spreading the word because we KNOW what’s up. With the knowledge comes the responsibility. I am not saying that SB and Bluebird have to go confront their families with truth… you have already done that, as I have. And I am heartbroken too. My last family member is estranged (somewhere between Vietnam and all the Ponzi’s) and we don’t talk. Many of my friends in the (VERY liberal) SF Bay area glaze-over when I talk about these things and some are actually angry that we left the country as though it was a slap in THEIR faces! Even my (grateful) deadhead friends are trying not to hear. I DO feel very alone most of the time. Can’t change what I know though. Move forward. I go through a lot of kleenex but do not want to lose my ability to mourn for the losses which are mounting. The worst thing to lose is your soul and your love for all this creation – however it got here!
Someone on another thread had a link to the Guy McPherson article “Extinction Event” (which actually gives a time-frame for die-off) puts a whole new spin on things. I think a lot of us post-Hiroshima cohort (educated in the 1950’s) have had a nasty feeling for a long time that this will not end well. Even as a kid I asked about how can this end OK.. we killed all the Indians in some of the cruelest ways and stole their land, we dropped a piece of the Sun on 2 Japanese cities – WE seem to be the problem here…. and WE are on the top of the heap. Can’t end well. Too bad we were right. Now it looks like the best advice we can give our loved ones is – STOP BREEDING. I have been on that kick since the 1970’s but now it is really critical. Lessen the suffering. That’s what we can do now. Grow food, help each other make whatever transition is coming and lessen the suffering of those around us. And keep your heart open and loving no matter the reception your words have.
Sending you all strength and love,
