“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

― Woodrow Wilson

FOR SOME TIME I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas.

– Harry Truman, December 23, 1963

    Just look at all the horrible things done for wealth and power. The country is being sucked dry by these evil people.

    I do not think this personality will change with some reasonable logical argument. I think the issue is very deep. DNA deep. My explanation is human evolution has incorporated survival behaviors into our DNA. Telling when someone is telling the truth or if they are truthful but erroring factually is the skill of putting oneself in someone else’s shoe, i.e. empathy. Some have more than others. Other innate skills are from what is in the literature is intelligence and fear of the unknown. Fear of the unknown is the driver to unearth and explore the unknown to make it less fearful. Empathy lets us assess others to a comfort level that we are willing to work with them. Empathy is basic for human communication and trust.
    The issue is someone who is smart but low in empathy and higher in the fear of the world factor. They tend to not see others as worthy of equal rights and they justify manipulating others for their personal gain. When they succeed they get a boost of dopamine. The rest of society gets a dopamine boost when giving of themselves helping others. Humanity is mostly ‘makers’ with a small proportion of takers’. I have tended to lump the ‘takers’ as sociopaths because they do have some level of Anti-Social Personality Disorder. It is a spectrum of personality issues without a firm demarcation.
    Those who are more fearful and have less empathy tend to favor groups, as in union members that tend to insure income and standards of living. Unions favor mediocracy as excellence by one member makes other members look less worthwhile. Excellence is discouraged and not rewarded. Fear of others is reduced through group standards protecting everyone from criticism. Showing excellence is perceived as criticism. The “Golden Rule” comes from coding in our DNA in my perspective. A good book to read is Steven Pinker’s “The Blank Slate”. Human behavior is heritable but two empathic parents can produce a sociopath as there is always an element of rolling the dice.
    It is those with low empathy who cannot get comfortable with diverse views in others. That fear drives them to seek control so that they can feel secure. It is that fear which moves people to join others similarly afraid to exert control over those they fear.
    Then there is mania. Everyone has experienced euphoria with a success or a new promising relationship.Most of us employ empathy as a brake to slow ourselves down and self-assess the truth of situations. Those with less empathy only see how wonderful it is to control others and lower their fear of the world. They actually have more fear because they have less empathic understanding of others. A first success, leads to more blatant behavior for other successes. This is what I see driving the mania we see today and the associated blatant overreach ignoring the rights of other.
    These people are manic at the moment and their overreach will harm us all if we do not understand where they are coming from. We need to demand our rights back by organizing through the ballot box. We need to educate our selves better in human behavior and object strongly to those who trample the rights of others.

      I have concluded that Mankind is instilled with all things Natural survival of the fittest. procreation, responses to aggression etc . Religion meets a need for inadequacy and “things beyond understanding”. Beyond this wealth, power, domination, protection of fellow-beings with inadequate mental and physical capability are NOT NATURAL traits. They are the foundation of all of the problems you identified !

    • An excellent summary, and explanation as to why sociopaths are attracted to power like flies to a cowpat. However, their greatest fear must surely be of each other, so their higher priority is to destroy their rivals rather than repress the masses. Isn’t this what we see in politics in all countries, throughout history and independently of the prevailing political system?

    The CiA never diverted from its original assignement
    (just as the UN or FED)
    They were all created for a specific,globalist purpose disguised as something else and than slowly transformed(fabian way) towards its original.

    The CiA was created by the CFR which is a globalist organisation initiated with the help of the Rockefellers ,who also donated the UN territory in New York and who are co owners of the FED
    and who organised the sponsoring of Hitler with JP Morgan and the Bush family.
    They also run the bohemain grove and the world shadow government Bilderbergers.
    And they are so extremly well connected that the UK government sent their troops on a suicide mission to aserbaycan,after they lost the baku oil fields.
    In return the CiA(+Kermit Roosevelt) saved the BP oil interessts for the Windsors and Rothschild in iran when they succefully removed Mossadeq
    (the first time failed,just as the russian revolution,but the New York connection
    waited a little bit and tried again.
    Another “revolution” in the making that failed the first time was turkey,
    as Erdogan was explicitly warned by ex CiA operativ Sybil Edmonds during the corbet report.
    The main actors were from the Güllen movement.
    Güllen got kicked out of Russia and Turkey for using his mosques as
    (surprise,surprise) CiA operational hub.
    Güllen followers are the muslim version of left,green,progressivs with a degree.
    Slimey,well educated and organised know it alls who had infiltrated several
    key institutions in turkey.
    Since Fatullah Güllen fled turkey he is hiding in the hardcore muslim country
    called USA/Pennsylvania.
    (just like other CiA/US backed leaders who had to leave their country as Ferdinand Marcos or the Somoza clan)

    The CiA had even an Academy for dictator recruitment “School of the americas”.
    That has created
    “more dictators on earth than any other school earth”
    (JP Kennedy)
    Both are not directly related,but their roots of origin go back straight after end of WW2 (1946/1947)
    and while the cia removes state leaders,the School of Americas graduates
    then occupy key positions in those countries after the coup/revolution.
    The schools of americas(far more civilised) for europe is the atlantik bridge that was created by Eric Warburg in Berlin.
    The Warburgs are? co owners of the FED.
    And to quote James Warburg in front of the US congress in 1950(just after the cia was created and before the atlantic bridge started)
    “There shall be a world government,wether we want it or not.
    Either by consent(atlantik bridge,co2 tax,UN,covid restrictions)
    or by conquest(cia,school of americas,coups and revolutions all around the world,the arab springs(who are nothing more than a repetition of all the “revolutions” that happened all over europe in the mid 19th century shortly after Moses Hess “introduced”the world to communism)

    A significant part of the network behind the curtain was already exposed in a very detailed way in 1966 by Carroll Quigley in his book “tragedy and hope”.
    Quigley was not an outsider and nutjob,
    but Harvard Professor,part of the world government cabal and he got access to all relevant data.
