Israel and Gaza – Lessons in History and an Opportunity for Humanity

We live in precious times. A lot of darkness is coming to light for us to look at and become conscious of. The brutal attacks on Gaza, where people are trapped with no way out, ask us to listen to our conscience and empathy and act on it. People are protesting world-wide. The death toll of Palestinian civilians, women, and children keeps rising by the day. It is good to see how many people start to speak out and protest, but keep in mind that this has been going on for 50+ years. It is systematic ethnic cleansing that has nothing to do with self-defense. This is not a war. It is slaughter by one of the most modern military in the world, financed with American tax money.

“Israel is perhaps the world’s 4th most powerful nuclear power, with a modern fully mechanized infantry with over 6,500 APC’s and 4,000 tanks, the largest fleet of F-16’s outside of the US, and an $11 million a day subsidy, versus the world’s largest concentration camp,* GAZA * with no aircraft, and no air defense artillery, no armor, no AIPAC, and no blanket UN veto from a permanent member of the Security Council. Israel isn’t the victim and this isn’t defense; it’s MASS MURDER .”

I’ve seen some people expressing how sad, angry, shocked, and powerless they feel. Please keep in mind that we are NOT powerless. Feeling anger, sadness and being disturbed is a natural reaction for any human being with conscience who sees what’s going on. Using it constructively, it gives us the energy to seek truth, educate ourselves, work on ourselves, gain knowledge, act on our conscience and speak out. The more we engage in that, others may be encouraged to do it as well, because most often people don’t do something until someone leads by example. Others, who are too plugged into the Matrix simply ignore it or may attack you for it, but that’s how the Matrix works and tries to keep itself in place. Don’t get discouraged. The more we raise awareness, make the darkness conscious and separate truth from lies, within and without, the more we align ourselves with the creative principle of the universe, bringing order to chaos. This is not easy work and it takes effort but it is the first step towards positive lasting change and what “conscious evolution” implies. It’s what we signed up for too. Listen to your conscience as an aware human being and make a stand for truth, love, and justice. More is at stake here, not just the lives of Palestinians. It affects all of us in ways most of us are not aware of.

Many people ask what they can do to help the situation. More important than signing petitions (which is fine and good) to help stop the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, we need to understand what and why it is actually happening, the historical context which goes back to WW I (and further than that), questioning official history (the fact that it is illegal to question some aspects of WW II should be a huge red flag to begin with and should make us question it even more), learning about Zionism, Psychopathy and Political Ponerology. Appealing to government (especially the US who gives billions of dollars yearly to Israel), world leaders, and the UN alone is useless in the long run for they are under the influence and grip of Zionist forces. For example,  the U.S. Senate voted Thursday night to support Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip. No dissenting vote was cast, and no mention was made of the hundreds of Palestinian civilians, most of whom are women and children, that have been killed by Israel in the past ten days. Read the original S.Res.498 resolution here.

“S.Res.498 – A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate regarding United States support for the State of Israel as it defends itself against unprovoked rocket attacks from the Hamas terrorist organization.”

This crisis is bigger than most people seem to be aware of but it is a chance to take down the world-wide Zionist control. It is a slim chance (I don’t hold my breath that it is actually going to happen) and won’t happen over night, but it is a step into the right direction if we educate ourselves about the truth and speak out about it.

The Zionist thought police or people heavily conditioned with the lies of official culture/history may call you an “anti-Semite”, “Jew hater”, “revisionist”, “Nazi”, “conspiracy theorist”, or other ad hominem attacks (all of which I’ve been called with hints at my German heritage and name, claiming that I have “psychological disposition”) but it has nothing to do with the facts and truth. Speaking out about Zionism and questioning official history has nothing to do with “hating” Jews nor are all Jews bad. In fact many Jews speak out about it as well. Some of my dearest friends are Jews who also speak out about Zionism and the lies of history. Much research around these topics has been done by Jews to begin with.

I encourage everyone to do your best to spread awareness about the truth of what is really going on via social media. This is the least we can do right now. Educate yourself about the true history of Zionism and this conflict as well as about psychopathy and political ponerology and then do your best to educate others and speak out about it. Don’t be afraid to speak out or worry about what others think of you. You may get attacked, shamed, and ridiculed, but this is nothing compared to what the Palestinians are dealing with right now and have for the past 50+ years. Do keep that in mind. Let your conscience be your guide, not fear, or misplaced political or spiritual “correctness”. This IS about choosing sides and not standing on the side lines or on the fence. The more people speak out and act on their conscience the better for all of us.

One thing I hear a lot or see on facebook posts is how so many people talk about a “balanced” view on this Israel-Palestine conflict, claiming that both sides have equal fault and both need to make equal effort and compromises so they can all “just get along” and have “peace” (spiritual bypassing). This is a reflection of not understanding the true history about this conflict nor understanding the true history of Zionism. The Zionist Israeli government has a very different understanding of what needs to be done for “peace” than most people seem to be aware if. That is the result of western propaganda (influenced by racist Zionist ideologies) which we also see reflected in the media and educational system which teaches distorted history .

It is very important for anyone to understand who argues for a “balanced” view that in this case there is no balanced view where both sides supposedly have equal fault. It’s about truth and facts and not falling into the “middle ground” fallacy: “You claimed that a compromise, or middle point, between two extremes must be the truth. Sometimes a thing is simply untrue and a compromise of it is also untrue. Half way between truth and a lie, is still a lie.” It’s also the fallacy of putting ones logic (conclusions) before grammar (research).

Miko Peled, who was born in Jerusalem into an influential Israeli Zionist family, son of a famous General in the Israeli Army, and who now speaks out against Zionism and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, cutting through the myths, lies, and propaganda we have been conditioned with for half a century, also makes this disclaimer at the beginning of his talks:

“The issue itself isn’t a balanced issue. There can not be a balanced presentation on this and if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced, they’re either misleading themselves or misleading their audience.”

Then there is of course the fear of many people to speak out against Israel, because of what others may think of them, afraid of being called an anti-Semite. This is how the people police themselves, being conditioned with lies and propaganda.

Most people parrot a very distorted view of reality and history or refrain from “choosing sides” and justify it as taking the “high road”, or as a sign of “spirituality” and “compassion”. But essentially they are lying to themselves unconsciously, not aware of the conditioned corrupted view of history and reality they have taken on, essentially supporting the lies and ongoing ethnic cleansing in Palestine.

Here is a talk by Miko Peled:

Many people still seem to be reluctant to speak up and are afraid that it may affect their image/social status, career, bank account and anything else they’re invested in (Peer pressure, what will my friends, neighbors, co-workers think?, etc.), hence, they rather defend/ignore the lies, atrocities, and the lies they tell themselves in order to self-calm (bypassing), consciously or unconsciously. To those I ask: What is your life, career and image really worth if you can’t even speak the truth or be yourself? What will you tell your children when they ask you what side of history were you on and what did you do and stand for?

Most people know deep inside what is wrong with our world. In this age of information you have to be completely disassociated and numb not to see the pathology of our society and the crimes and atrocities committed by governments. When we look away and don’t act on our conscience to speak out we unconsciously feel guilty about not doing so. This suppressed guilt increases the collective shadow and we become complicit just like bystanders watching a crime unfold and not doing anything about it. We lose our integrity when we don’t feel for another and act on our conscience. We then get stuck in an ego-centric existence where we only care for ourselves, buying into the illusion of the ego that we are separate from the greater body politic and nothing affects us as long as we stay “positive”.

Spiritual practices and over-simplified absolute truths are often times used to buffer up this unconscious guilt of not acting on our conscience and we feed our spiritually masked-up narcissism all the while lying to ourselves that we are awake and conscious. It’s easy to rationalize away our guilt/remorse which cuts us off from emotions in general and ultimately our conscience. It is no surprise that psychopaths never feel any guilt/remorse at all since they also lack conscience. Of course there is also the flip-side if we get stuck in these emotions, beating ourselves up when our wounds from the past are triggered and engaging in mechanical suffering. Many of us have taken on shame and guilt from our upbringing when our care-takers or friends projected their own shadow into us and shamed us for who we truly are. However, feeling guilty about things we have done or said (or didn’t stand up for) which we knew deep down inside of us were wrong and not aligned with who we truly are is our access and compass towards compassion, empathy, and conscience.

Guilt and anger are closely related. Consciously experiencing and feeling our guilt and shame can bring up anger. This is healthy anger that needs to come out and relates to our conscience coming through, using it as powerful force to stand in our integrity and act on it. Some of this anger may be related to our past which we haven’t full acknowledge and worked through yet because it was buried behind guilt and shame when we even felt guilty about feeling angry and judged ourselves for it or others have judged us for being angry.

Not feeling any anger when looking at the pathology of society and the atrocities in the world is also a sign of numbness and dissociating. Many well-intentioned spiritual practitioners suppress it because it is seen as “unspiritual” and so they side-step these “negative” emotions trying to reach something “higher” without integrating emotions consciously they don’t feel comfortable with, falling into the trap of the “make nice” program where niceness is mistaken as a sign of spiritual awareness. This also relates to cognitive dissonance when people reject information because it makes them uncomfortable. Feeling our collective guilt and emerging righteous anger in a full-embodied way and use this energy constructively to act on our conscience is part of the work towards wholeness and making this world a better place. If we don’t, we only fuel “evil” in the world as our personal and collective shadow grows bigger and stronger.

“To the extent that we are unwilling and/or unable to consciously experience our feelings of guilt, we are guilty of unconsciously enacting something to feel guilty about. Like Shakespeare’s Macbeth, in order to live with this guilt we are compelled to repeat the very thing about which we feel guilty, increasing its scope each time, as if this would magically undo the original error. This process continues until we are no longer troubled by it consciously, which is to say the guilt is then sealed away in the crypt of our deepest unconscious and we have become psychically deadened to feeling…. When we consciously experience our “feelings” of guilt in a real, “full-bodied way” (compared to an “intellectual” way, in I which we only experience the “idea” of our guilt), the underlying guilt, as if released from being stuck in a frozen block of ice, begins to melt, move, and transform…. To the extent that we’re not awake, we are all complicit in what is being dreamed up in our world, which is to say we all share a collective guilt. Paradoxically, the tragic fate of consciously experiencing our guilt, shame and sin, and thereby experiencing a genuinely remorseful conscience, introduces us to the part of ourselves that is innocent. We have to feel our guilt as our possession before we can offer it; we can’t surrender if there’s nothing to let go of.
[…]
Our resulting complacency and inaction in the face of our species’ self-extinction is, in fact, an expression of our lack of compassion. If our state of psychic blindness is reflected back to us, we will undoubtedly feel “not seen,” which likewise induces in the one offering the reflection the experience of feeling unseen too. It is then as if the quality of not seeing, of blindness, of unconsciousness has entered the field. If we do not face reality however, we have no chance of transforming it. Evil can only happen in the global body politic when good people, looking away, remain silent and do nothing. Just as in a family system, the perpetrator does everything in their power to promote forgetting. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing and remain indifferent, appealing to the near-universal desire to see, hear, and speak no evil. And yet, as Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us, “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

- Paul Levy, Dispelling Wetiko – Breaking the Curse of Evil

“One can miss not only one’s happiness, but also one’s final guilt, without which a man will never reach his wholeness.”

-  Carl G. Jung

There is also this contrived “niceness” in certain “conscious movements”, where people don’t want to say anything “negative” in their subjective understanding of it of course. In general, some folks hide behind a social etiquette and mask without wanting to say anything “bad” or touching on any taboo subjects. They speak around issues in order to be spiritually or politically “correct” so as to not step on anyone’s toes or to protect their social image, being concerned about how others may think of them.

Some time ago I was at a yoga class and the teacher finished the class with a prayer in which she also said: “Let’s be conscious of what we say, and if we don’t have anything nice to say, it’s better to be silent”. That is a good example of the distortion of “being conscious/aware” and relates to the fact why more spiritual-minded people don’t look at the world more objectively, speaking out and standing up against the lies and psychopathic ways of our culture.

Because it’s not “nice” to state that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza based on the racist ideology of Zionism. It’s not “nice” to say that Obama is a pathological liar and that the US is controlled by Zionist forces. It’s not “nice” to point out that 4- 6% of humanity have no conscience by birth and are mostly found in positions of power. It’s not “nice” to claim that the official 9/11 story is a blatant lie. Not only is it not nice, it’s also being “negative” or it is “conspiracy nonsense” according to some people’s convoluted perception who never researched these topics in-depth, hence one should not say anything at all. This attitude of contrived “niceness” essentially creates the conditions for conformity, complacency, authoritarian followers, ignorance, the atrophy of critical thinking, and only fuels the oppression and atrocities we see in Gaza right now and in the world at large.

This doesn’t mean that one should be mean, aggressive and rude or push information on someone who didn’t ask for it. It simply means to be sincere and honest with conscience and awareness. There is a time to speak up and a time to be silent. And sometimes you have to be direct, call a spade a spade and give the lie what it deserves: the truth, regardless of what others may think, even if it doesn’t sound “nice” and it doesn’t conform to what someone “likes” to hear. You can be considerate and still speak the truth, even if others see it as “negative” from their conditioned point of view.

It’s also interesting to see how so many self-proclaimed “spiritual” and “aware” folks, many of them very popular “spiritual” teachers/authors, yoga teachers, meditation teachers, life coaches, self-help gurus, etc., lack the most basic critical thinking skills and buy into and support the lies of official culture/history…and often times use “spiritualism” to bypass facts, reality, and justify it through over-simplified distorted spiritual ideas or engage in “political correctness”. Many people are Authoritarian Followers who fall into the “appeal to authority” fallacy. This following quote also relates to Authoritarian Followers who only believe in the mainstream consensus and socially accepted version of official history:

“A very large majority of people in our society will not believe 500 people who tell them that something really works because they have tried it in opposition to a single doctor who says “that’s not recommended by the medical associations.” This kind of person who follows the “constituted authorities” rather than empirical evidence is referred to by psychologist Bob Altemeyer as “The Authoritarian Follower” personality type. It is thanks to this type of person that even pure psychopaths in power can get away with the most egregious crimes in all fields of endeavor, from medicine to law, from industry to politics. The Authoritarian Follower believes that those in authority have the right to live by their own rules and lying, cheating, stealing and murder in high places can thus be tolerated with a shrug of the shoulders.” 

- Laura Knight-Jadczyk

Like in Plato’s allegory of the cave most people are distracted by the shadows on the wall, mesmerized and hypnotized, taking reality for illusion and illusion for reality. Many defenses usually come up when someone can see the deception and points to the exit of the cave, trying to show us that we are distracted by illusion. It’s where psychology and mind control come in, for the mind controlled victims (as is most of society) don’t know that they are mind-controlled and hypnotized. You can present endless facts and information to them but they will deny it and not able to SEE it, no matter how others point it out and ring the alarm clock. They may even attack, ridicule, and shame you for daring to question their limited reality box. Looking at the world as it is and facing objective reality that goes contrary to our ingrained beliefs can literally cause physical discomfort.

10320607_10203356010408584_7240146902060336094_n

There are various unconscious psychological mechanisms that keep us in a hypnotized state because truth and objective reality is too much to handle. The most common one is cognitive dissonance. Most of us seek consistency in our beliefs and perceptions. When presented with facts or information that contradicts our long-held beliefs which we are identified with, meaning they make up part of who we think we are and we have based our behavior and life-view on these belief, it can create physical discomfort in our bodies. This results in rejecting information because of the emotional trigger we experience and has nothing to do with if the information we are presented with is true or not. It’s a mechanical and unconscious reaction which shuts down our ability to reason and think clearly when confronted with information that conflicts with our beliefs. The more we are identified with beliefs the more discomfort we experience when they are being challenged. In the extreme case, a person suffering from cognitive dissonance will verbally or physically attack the other person who is challenging his/her beliefs. Rational discussion based on the information at hand is impossible if we don’t check ourselves how cognitive dissonance keeps us from staying objective.

Having said all that, readers of my blog and people who have watched the videos I produced with Humberto Braga know that the rabbit hole goes deeper beyond Zionism or any -ism, national or religious identification. The work is also to be done within and without. However, we can’t skip steps or try reaching something “higher” without understanding the basics of our true history and make a stand for truth, justice, and love in practical ways and in the true meaning of those words, learning our personal and collective lesson. Just like in school, we don’t get to move on until our lessons are learned. So the first step would be to educate ourselves about the truth, deprogram ourselves from the lies we have believed in and then spread the word and help educate others.

“Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past.”

- George Orwell

In addition to the videos posted above, below is a list articles and videos to check out. I also recommend reading “History, Lies, and the Importance of Critical Thinking and Self-work” before getting into the listed material. Out of my own experience learning about all this, having dealt with cognitive dissonance myself, de-programing myself from the lies of official history, I know how hard it is to take in this information. It can be emotionally challenging and very triggering. Please do your best to read/watch all of it before coming to conclusions or dismissing something before having looked deeper into it.

Before even having an intelligent discussion about “solutions” in this Israel-Palestine conflict we need to understand the historical and present facts and how we have been conditioned with lies and propaganda. There is no way to bypass the topic of Zionism, WW I and WW II if one is sincerely interested in truth and a solution.

 “So for those people who do want to associate themselves with Israel and Zionism, and drape themselves in the Zionist flag, the flag that has come to symbolize intolerance, hate, racism and brutality, they can feel free to do so. But they need to know this, that when the trials begin, and the tribunals take their place, and when the truth and reconciliation commission begins to work and they’re finally shamed into admitting that they were wrong, they need to remember to go down on their knees and beg forgiveness from the people they so blatantly wronged. Because they need to realize that we will never forget them. And that their conscience will never allow them to forget [except for psychopaths, who have no conscience] that they supported the killing, they draped themselves in the flag and they mocked the bereaved.”

- Miko Peled

A little history primer to start with. I see a lot of people comparing Israel to Nazi Germany. All fine and good to an extent. However, do most people actually know the true history of WW I and WW II and how it relates to the current conflict in Palestine or are they just repeating the official version (distorted by the Zionists, ironically)? Context is important without generalizing.

For example, have you ever heard of “The Balfour Declaration” and this speech by Benjamin H. Freedman from 1961? Born in 1890, Freedman was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City. He broke with organized Jewry after the Judeo-Communist victory of 1945, and spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Zionist tyranny which has enveloped the United States.

Some excerpts from his speech:

“Here in the United States, the Zionists and their co-religionists have complete control of our government. For many reasons, too many and too complex to go into here at this time, the Zionists and their co-religionists rule these United States as though they were the absolute monarchs of this country. Now you may say that is a very broad statement, but let me show you what happened while we were all asleep.

What happened? World War I broke out in the summer of 1914. There are few people here my age who remember that. Now that war was waged on one side by Great Britain, France, and Russia; and on the other side by Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey.

Within two years Germany had won that war: not only won it nominally, but won it actually.
[…]
Not a shot had been fired on German soil. Not one enemy soldier had crossed the border into Germany. And yet, Germany was offering England peace terms. They offered England a negotiated peace on what the lawyers call a status quo ante basis. That means: “Let’s call the war off, and let everything be as it was before the war started.”

England, in the summer of 1916 was considering that — seriously. They had no choice. It was either accepting this negotiated peace that Germany was magnanimously offering them, or going on with the war and being totally defeated.

While that was going on, the Zionists in Germany, who represented the Zionists from Eastern Europe, went to the British War Cabinet and — I am going to be brief because it’s a long story, but I have all the documents to prove any statement that I make — they said: “Look here. You can yet win this war. You don’t have to give up. You don’t have to accept the negotiated peace offered to you now by Germany. You can win this war if the United States will come in as your ally.” The United States was not in the war at that time. We were fresh; we were young; we were rich; we were powerful. They told England: “We will guarantee to bring the United States into the war as your ally, to fight with you on your side, if you will promise us Palestine after you win the war.” In other words, they made this deal: “We will get the United States into this war as your ally. The price you must pay is Palestine after you have won the war and defeated Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey.” Now England had as much right to promise Palestine to anybody, as the United States would have to promise Japan to Ireland for any reason whatsoever. It’s absolutely absurd that Great Britain, that never had any connection or any interest or any right in what is known as Palestine should offer it as coin of the realm to pay the Zionists for bringing the United States into the war. However, they did make that promise, in October of 1916. And shortly after that — I don’t know how many here remember it — the United States, which was almost totally pro-German, entered the war as Britain’s ally.

I say that the United States was almost totally pro-German because the newspapers here were controlled by Jews, the bankers were Jews, all the media of mass communications in this country were controlled by Jews; and they, the Jews, were pro-German.
[…]
Now those same Jews, when they saw the possibility of getting Palestine, went to England and they made this deal. At that time, everything changed, like a traffic light that changes from red to green. Where the newspapers had been all pro-German, where they’d been telling the people of the difficulties that Germany was having fighting Great Britain commercially and in other respects, all of a sudden the Germans were no good. They were villains. They were Huns. They were shooting Red Cross nurses. They were cutting off babies’ hands. They were no good. Shortly after that, Mr. Wilson declared war on Germany.
[…]
There was absolutely no reason for World War I to be our war. We were railroaded into — if I can be vulgar, we were suckered into — that war merely so that the Zionists of the world could obtain Palestine. That is something that the people of the United States have never been told. They never knew why we went into World War I.
[…]
That is where all the trouble started. The United States got in the war. The United States crushed Germany. You know what happened. When the war ended, and the Germans went to Paris for the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 there were 117 Jews there, as a delegation representing the Jews, headed by Bernard Baruch. I was there: I ought to know.

Now what happened? The Jews at that peace conference, when they were cutting up Germany and parceling out Europe to all these nations who claimed a right to a certain part of European territory, said, “How about Palestine for us?” And they produced, for the first time to the knowledge of the Germans, this Balfour Declaration. So the Germans, for the first time realized, “Oh, so that was the game! That’s why the United States came into the war.” The Germans for the first time realized that they were defeated, they suffered the terrific reparations that were slapped onto them, because the Zionists wanted Palestine and were determined to get it at any cost.

That brings us to another very interesting point. When the Germans realized this, they naturally resented it. Up to that time, the Jews had never been better off in any country in the world than they had been in Germany. You had Mr. Rathenau there, who was maybe 100 times as important in industry and finance as is Bernard Baruch in this country. You had Mr. Balin, who owned the two big steamship lines, the North German Lloyd’s and the Hamburg-American Lines. You had Mr. Bleichroder, who was the banker for the Hohenzollern family. You had the Warburgs in Hamburg, who were the big merchant bankers — the biggest in the world. The Jews were doing very well in Germany. No question about that. The Germans felt: “Well, that was quite a sellout.”

It was a sellout that might be compared to this hypothetical situation: Suppose the United States was at war with the Soviet Union. And we were winning. And we told the Soviet Union: “Well, let’s quit. We offer you peace terms. Let’s forget the whole thing.” And all of a sudden Red China came into the war as an ally of the Soviet Union. And throwing them into the war brought about our defeat. A crushing defeat, with reparations the likes of which man’s imagination cannot encompass. Imagine, then, after that defeat, if we found out that it was the Chinese in this country, our Chinese citizens, who all the time we had thought were loyal citizens working with us, were selling us out to the Soviet Union and that it was through them that Red China was brought into the war against us. How would we feel, then, in the United States against Chinese? I don’t think that one of them would dare show his face on any street. There wouldn’t be enough convenient lampposts to take care of them. Imagine how we would feel.

Well, that’s how the Germans felt towards these Jews. They’d been so nice to them: from 1905 on, when the first Communist revolution in Russia failed, and the Jews had to scramble out of Russia, they all went to Germany. And Germany gave them refuge. And they were treated very nicely. And here they had sold Germany down the river for no reason at all other than the fact that they wanted Palestine as a so-called “Jewish commonwealth.”
[…]
And World War I had been started against Germany for no reason for which Germany was responsible. They were guilty of nothing. Only of being successful. They built up a big navy. They built up world trade. You must remember that Germany at the time of the French Revolution consisted of 300 small city-states, principalities, dukedoms, and so forth. Three hundred separate little political entities. And between that time, between the times of Napoleon and Bismarck, they were consolidated into one state. And within 50 years they became one of the world’s great powers. Their navy was rivaling Great Britain’s, they were doing business all over the world, they could undersell anybody, they could make better products. What happened as a result of that?

There was a conspiracy between England, France, and Russia to slap down Germany. There isn’t one historian in the world who can find a valid reason why those three countries decided to wipe Germany off the map politically.
[…]
And at that time, mind you, there were 80 to 90 million Germans, and there were only 460,000 Jews. About one half of one per cent of the population of Germany were Jews. And yet they controlled all the press, and they controlled most of the economy because they had come in with cheap money when the mark was devalued and bought up practically everything.

The Jews tried to keep a lid on this fact. They didn’t want the world to really understand that they had sold out Germany, and that the Germans resented that.

The Germans took appropriate action against the Jews. They, shall I say, discriminated against them wherever they could. They shunned them. The same way that we would shun the Chinese, or the Negroes, or the Catholics, or anyone in this country who had sold us out to an enemy and brought about our defeat.

After a while, the Jews of the world called a meeting in Amsterdam. Jews from every country in the world attended this meeting in July 1933. And they said to Germany: “You fire Hitler, and you put every Jew back into his former position, whether he was a Communist or no matter what he was. You can’t treat us that way. And we, the Jews of the world, are serving an ultimatum upon you.” You can imagine what the Germans told them. So what did the Jews do?

In 1933, when Germany refused to surrender to the world conference of Jews in Amsterdam, the conference broke up, and Mr. Samuel Untermyer, who was the head of the American delegation and the president of the whole conference, came to the United States and went from the steamer to the studios of the Columbia Broadcasting System and made a radio broadcast throughout the United States in which he in effect said, “The Jews of the world now declare a Holy War against Germany. We are now engaged in a sacred conflict against the Germans. And we are going to starve them into surrender. We are going to use a world-wide boycott against them. That will destroy them because they are dependent upon their export business.”

The Jews of the world declared a boycott against Germany, and it was so effective that you couldn’t find one thing in any store anywhere in the world with the words “Made in Germany” on it. In fact, an executive of the Woolworth Company told me that they had to dump millions of dollars worth of crockery and dishes into the river; that their stores were boycotted if anyone came in and found a dish marked “made in Germany,” they were picketed with signs saying “Hitler,” “murderer,” and so forth, something like these sit-ins that are taking place in the South.
[…]
Now up to that time, not one hair on the head of any Jew had been hurt in Germany. There was no suffering, there was no starvation, there was no murder, there was nothing.

Naturally, the Germans said, “Who are these people to declare a boycott against us and throw all our people out of work, and make our industries come to a standstill? Who are they to do that to us?” They naturally resented it. Certainly they painted swastikas on stores owned by Jews. Why should a German go in and give his money to a storekeeper who was part of a boycott that was going to starve Germany into surrendering to the Jews of the world, who were going to dictate who their premier or chancellor was to be? Well, it was ridiculous.
[…]
The Jews of the world, the Zionists and their co-religionists everywhere, are determined that they are going to again use the United States to help them permanently retain Palestine as their foothold for their world government. That is just as true as I am standing here. Not alone have I read it, but many here have also read it, and it is known all over the world.

What are we going to do? The life you save may be your son’s. Your boys may be on their way to that war tonight; and you don’t know it any more than you knew that in 1916 in London the Zionists made a deal with the British War Cabinet to send your sons to war in Europe. Did you know it at that time? Not a person in the United States knew it. You weren’t permitted to know it. Who knew it? President Wilson knew it. Colonel House knew it. Other insiders knew it.
[…]
That is how they got us into World War I, while we all slept. They sent our boys over there to be slaughtered. For what? So the Jews can have Palestine as their “commonwealth.” They’ve fooled you so much that you don’t know whether you’re coming or going.
[...]
The eastern European Jews, who form 92 per cent of the world’s population of those people who call themselves “Jews”, were originally Khazars. They were a warlike tribe who lived deep in the heart of Asia. And they were so warlike that even the Asiatics drove them out of Asia into eastern Europe. They set up a large Khazar kingdom of 800,000 square miles. At the time, Russia did not exist, nor did many other European countries. The Khazar kingdom was the biggest country in all Europe — so big and so powerful that when the other monarchs wanted to go to war, the Khazars would lend them 40,000 soldiers. That’s how big and powerful they were.

They were phallic worshippers, which is filthy and I do not want to go into the details of that now. But that was their religion, as it was also the religion of many other pagans and barbarians elsewhere in the world. The Khazar king became so disgusted with the degeneracy of his kingdom that he decided to adopt a so-called monotheistic faith — either Christianity, Islam, or what is known today as Judaism, which is really Talmudism. By spinning a top, and calling out “eeny, meeny, miney, moe,” he picked out so-called Judaism. And that became the state religion. He sent down to the Talmudic schools of Pumbedita and Sura and brought up thousands of rabbis, and opened up synagogues and schools, and his people became what we call “Jews”.

There wasn’t one of them who had an ancestor who ever put a toe in the Holy Land. Not only in Old Testament history, but back to the beginning of time. Not one of them! And yet they come to the Christians and ask us to support their armed insurrections in Palestine by saying, “You want to help repatriate God’s Chosen People to their Promised Land, their ancestral home, don’t you? It’s your Christian duty. We gave you one of our boys as your Lord and Savior. You now go to church on Sunday, and you kneel and you worship a Jew, and we’re Jews.”

But they are pagan Khazars who were converted just the same as the Irish were converted. It is as ridiculous to call them “people of the Holy Land,” as it would be to call the 54 million Chinese Moslems “Arabs.” Mohammed only died in 620 A.D., and since then 54 million Chinese have accepted Islam as their religious belief. Now imagine, in China, 2,000 miles away from Arabia, from Mecca and Mohammed’s birthplace. Imagine if the 54 million Chinese decided to call themselves “Arabs.” You would say they were lunatics. Anyone who believes that those 54 million Chinese are Arabs must be crazy. All they did was adopt as a religious faith a belief that had its origin in Mecca, in Arabia. The same as the Irish. When the Irish became Christians, nobody dumped them in the ocean and imported to the Holy Land a new crop of inhabitants. They hadn’t become a different people. They were the same people, but they had accepted Christianity as a religious faith.

These Khazars, these pagans, these Asiatics, these Turko-Finns, were a Mongoloid race who were forced out of Asia into eastern Europe. Because their king took the Talmudic faith, they had no choice in the matter. Just the same as in Spain: If the king was Catholic, everybody had to be a Catholic. If not, you had to get out of Spain. So the Khazars became what we call today “Jews”.

Now imagine how silly it was for the great Christian countries of the world to say, “We’re going to use our power and prestige to repatriate God’s Chosen People to their ancestral homeland, their Promised Land.” Could there be a bigger lie than that? Because they control the newspapers, the magazines, the radio, the television, the book publishing business, and because they have the ministers in the pulpit and the politicians on the soapboxes talking the same language, it is not too surprising that you believe that lie. You’d believe black is white if you heard it often enough. You wouldn’t call black black anymore — you’d start to call black white. And nobody could blame you. That is one of the great lies of history. It is the foundation of all the misery that has befallen the world.

Do you know what Jews do on the Day of Atonement, that you think is so sacred to them? I was one of them. This is not hearsay. I’m not here to be a rabble-rouser. I’m here to give you facts. When, on the Day of Atonement, you walk into a synagogue, you stand up for the very first prayer that you recite. It is the only prayer for which you stand. You repeat three times a short prayer called the Kol Nidre. In that prayer, you enter into an agreement with God Almighty that any oath, vow, or pledge that you may make during the next twelve months shall be null and void. The oath shall not be an oath; the vow shall not be a vow; the pledge shall not be a pledge. They shall have no force or effect. And further, the Talmud teaches that whenever you take an oath, vow, or pledge, you are to remember the Kol Nidre prayer that you recited on the Day of Atonement, and you are exempted from fulfilling them. How much can you depend on their loyalty? You can depend upon their loyalty as much as the Germans depended upon it in 1916. We are going to suffer the same fate as Germany suffered, and for the same reason….”

The Greatest Story Never Told

Synopsis of The Greatest Story Never Told by Marcus Wolfe :

WW II affected hundreds of millions of people and it affected millions of Europeans and Asians born after the war too. If not for the war, myself and millions of other people would be citizens of a different country today. Millions of people were driven off their historic homelands, lands they had lived on for centuries and borders were shifted to the victors advantage. The world was changed forever.

Europe had led the world for centuries and it laid in ruin. Entire countries were completely destroyed with their cities left unrecognizable. The British Empire was left bankrupt and broke up, the French Empire lost its colonies after the war and Germany lost a huge amount of land again, added to the losses of WW I Germany was now two thirds its former size. At least fourteen million Germans were driven off their historic lands in the biggest ethnic cleansing operation and mass movement of people in history. Europe lost its leadership position in science, technology and culture. Until 1945 and a few years after, Germany had dominated the Nobel Prizes with far more than any other country, and Great Britain and France were at the top in science too. All of Europe was educated and competitive. With the almost complete destruction of Europe, the United States and the Soviet Union took over leadership of the world and leadership in science and technology. Those two countries competed to explore space, with the USA landing on the Moon in 1969 and the USA took over leadership in the sciences too.

In 1948 Israel was created. The Zionists and Jews in general played a central role in WW II. Many were victims and many Europeans were their victims. Jews also played an important role in starting, or at least widening, and then winning the war. Jews were no less powerful after the war than before it and Israel was created in 1948. Palestinians were pushed off their land and the fighting goes on until today. For most of the last seventy years since the end of the war we were told that Jews were the main victims of WW II with a countless number of books, movies and documentaries made about the “holocaust.” Hardly any other country or ethnic group’s suffering was ever mentioned. Today Israel is a superpower with one of the largest nuclear arsenals in the world and with Zionism’s enormous influence over virtually every western country, Israel threatens its neighbors regularly and western countries (in particular the USA) make war on their behalf.

In order to better understand what is going on in the world today we have to understand WW II, the war that put the people that rule the world today into power. Most of the world does not understand how we got where we are today because the history of WW II has been deliberately distorted. In order to ensure these false notions of what the war was about and who the bad guys were and who the good guys were (the victors of course), laws have been put into place that guarantee that anyone that questions or produces evidence against the “holocaust” or other mainstream claims is in violation of the law and is subject to jail. More than a few important historians and scientists have been thrown into jail in Europe and very few people in academia or outside of academia complain about this and at the same time these self satisfied people talk about the importance of “freedom of speech” and its important role in a democracy.

While Churchill and FDR are presented as Saints and even Stalin was proclaimed to be a great man, Germany’s leader and the Germans themselves have been presented as the devil incarnate. We have been told over and over for the last seventy years many different things about Hitler, all bad and many ridiculous. Many books and claims have been made about the man and many contradict each other, but as long as they portray Hitler as evil they get a good reception by the media. We’re told he was a lowly corporal, a house painter, a homosexual and at the same time a murderer of homosexuals. Then contradicting the house painter claim, they say he was a failed art student, he was so evil that he was incapable of painting a human figure with the proper dimensions.

In truth Hitler was an aspiring art student that was competent, but not good enough to get into the art school in Vienna. He was not a coward as we are often told, but a war hero winning the Iron Cross first and second class, he was gassed at the end of the war and suffered the terrible pain that went with that. He was a heterosexual that had sexual relations and married the love of his life before they both committed suicide to avoid being tortured and murdered by the victorious allies. He presided over the most remarkable economic recovery of the 1930’s and he was a remarkable military leader. For putting millions of Germans back to work, ending the misery imposed on Germany by its enemies and restoring Germany’s pride his people supported him to the bitter end. No matter the military setbacks or the mass murder of Germany’s civilians by enemy bombers he had the full support of all of Germany and Germany fought virtually the whole world until the bitter end.

This documentary attempts to educate the viewer about the facts regarding Hitler, the war, the holocaust and many other things.

The film comes in 26 segments, each about fifteen minutes in length.

A little personal note to end with. The last two weeks have been quite challenging and draining for me. Watching helplessly how the people in Gaza are being slaughtered while the world watches has been very hard. Doing the best I can to speak out about it on facebook, I’ve received ad hominem attacks, publicly and in messages and emails, even a law suit threat by a popular “spiritual teacher”. On a positive note I’ve never seen so many people protest and speak out against the crimes of Israel. I’ve made many new friends, in particular Arab and Jewish friends, fighting for the same cause: truth, justice and love. This is inspiring and does give me hope.

Writing this blog has been very challenging and vulnerable for me on a personal level, going back into history. Many atrocities were committed during WW I and WW II from all nations. Millions of people have died from all ethnicities, not just Jews. The Allies, the so-called “saviors of the world from evil” have committed horrendous war crimes which have been edited out from our official history books. On a personal level a lot of unconscious guilt and shame came up for me, taking in all this information. I didn’t expect that to happen. I was forced to re-visit my childhood and my parent’s history, who were born during WW II and grew up under impossible circumstances. My Mom is from Poland, half German, half Polish. My Dad from East Germany. He and his family tried to escape Eastern Germany in the 60’s, jumping off a ferry in the Mediterranean Sea, trying to swim to the western part. They got caught and imprisoned in East Germany. The universe sent them an angel and a German lawyer helped them to migrate to West Germany. My Dad and Mom met in a refugee house in West Germany, starting a new life with literally nothing. To this day my Dad can’t fully remember what happened. He has dissociated much of the past. When trying to talk about it, anxiety comes up and he gets headaches. My mom and I encouraged him to write his memoirs but he simply can’t go there. He was born right around when WW II started.

I have gone through a very guilt-ridden education in Germany with a mandatory visit at the concentration camp in Dachau as a 16-year old, not having any clue, being told how evil and bad we were in WW II. I don’t believe in nationalism and don’t identify myself with any country, but there was certainly some ancestral trauma and guilt that came up recently, remembering all the Nazi jokes about Germans I was subjected to when moving to the US (and still am), all the films where Germans mostly play the bad guys in Hollywood movies, all the propaganda and lies I’ve believed in and taken on, the shaming and guilt projected on the German people. Realizing now the truth of what actually happened, things that I was never told in high school, brought me to tears and I wept a lot. It was very difficult for me to learn about all this and didn’t expect to be so effected by it. At first I even rejected it, dealing with cognitive dissonance, even being afraid to believe that and talk or write about it. But I feel doing what I do helps not only to heal myself but to heal my Dad and my ancestors as well, and everyone else, for the past is connected to all of us and we are all connected. I feel like I’m going through a purging.

“Our lives are not our own. we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future. Truth is singular. Its ‘versions’ are mistruths. To be is to be perceived, and so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of the other… The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds, that go and impressionate themselves throughout all time…Yesterday, my life was headed in one direction. Today, it is headed in another. Yesterday I believed that I would never have done what I did today. These forces that often remake time and space, that can shape and alter who we imagine ourselves to be, begin long before we are born and continue after we perish. Our lives and our choices, like quantum trajectories, are understood moment to moment. At each point of intersection, each encounter suggests a new potential direction.”

- from “Cloud Atlas”

Especially now I expect more attacks, as a “German” questioning official history. But my essence is not “German”. I’m just a human being and share many of the same fears as you all do. I have my issues and short-comings. Some people tell me how “courageous” and “brave” I am for speaking out like that. I really don’t feel like that at all. I just act on my conscience and feel I have no other choice but to speak out. I don’t think I’m special or better than anyone else. The world is an intense place to be, so much beauty and so much horror at the same time. Blind and ignorant people who are vey conditioned with official culture/history can do a lot of harm. Doing what I do is certainly not helping me make money or be popular and “liked”, but money and popularity have never been my driving forces. I’m just trying to make sense of what is going on the world and act on my conscience, becoming a better person in the process. By no means do I hate Jews, never did, or any other ethnic group. By no means would I imply that Hitler was just a “misunderstood good guy”. Obviously he has blood on his hand and was a power-driven nationalist, like many others, however his story and the story of the German people during that period and much about WW II has been grossly distorted. That’s a fact for anyone to see who does some sincere research and it will also become clear how it relates to current conflicts in our world.

I just want a better world for all of us and all I’m interested is in truth, as it is. There is still so much we don’t know. Nationalism, religious fundamentalism, greed and desire for power are diseases in themselves if left unchecked. However, our true history has been suppressed and grossly distorted in purpose. History is written by the victors after all. It’s about truth and truth should not fear investigation. It is also clear to anyone who investigates history how all of this relates to the current conflict between Israel and Palestine and our world at large. Many people say it is a very complicated situation. It is indeed a complicated situation and stating that should encourage anyone to learn about it all for then it becomes clearer. The truth about history does matter, so we can truly learn from it and create a better world for all of us.

In the end I know this is part of the process. The Matrix and the people plugged into it will attack anyone who dares to step out of the herd. The people in Gaza and many others in the world suffer way more than me and most of us. We should be grateful to live such privileged lives and never take anything for granted. Thank you all for the great support and encouraging messages. They outweigh all the attacks I have received by far.

 “Monkey, killing monkey, killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They make a club
And beat their brother… down.
How they survived so misguided is a mystery.
Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here”

“Facing the Darkness with Bernhard Guenther” – Interview on Aetherforce

Here’s an interview I gave on May 31st on Aetherforce, touching on several topics, including: hyperdimensional realities, psychopathy, psychedelics, the many traps on the path of awakening, the importance of sincere self-work & networking, and more!
(We had some technical difficulty at 47:00 to 48:30)


Marianne Williamson and the Elephant in the Living Room

There is one topic that stands like the proverbial elephant in our collective living room, still unacknowledged, ignored or misunderstood by many people. It’s the underlying issue for our society and world’s problems. This is the topic of Psychopathy, especially Psychopaths in places of power and how it affects our world and society at large. More and more research and studies have been published that prove the existence of this intra-species predator, yet it still  is being avoided and not sincerely studied and looked at by many well-meaning people who work actively trying to make this world a better place. They focus on the symptoms, but not the underlying causes.

ElephantInTheLivingRoom2

A couple of weeks ago I attended a talk in Topanga Canyon by Marianne Williamson who is running for congress. I was reluctant to go, knowing about the futility to change the political system through the system. I’ve written about it before: “Voting, Cognitive Dissonance and Fear of the Unknown”  as well as “The Illusion of Choice“. However, considering that I like some of her past work and we have shown a clip of her talk at a festival in our film “Love, Reality, and the Time of Transition” I decided to see what she had to say.

In her talk she made some good points, in particular about the necessity to do conscious work within and without, not shutting off from the world but actively engaging in creating change and facing our world problems head on. Much of what she said reflected what she talked about  at “Lightning in a Bottle” in 2011, mentioned above. However, since she’s officially running for congress her tone has changed a bit and she seemed to have taken on some typical political lingo in an effort to win support for her campaign.

Anyone who still believes that we live in a democracy in the true sense of its meaning lives in a bubble of denial and wishful thinking. Williamson appears to agree with this since stressed that our democracy is at risk. However, there is a lot of wishful thinking about trying to do this through the system itself. For example, assuming that the majority of people could ever have an influence on law making and presidential elections given the way our society and institutions are controlled, in particular the press and education, it’s just too easy to manipulate the people’s choices and opinions. It’s an example of Stockholm Syndrome writ large. In fact, “democracy” is the perfect tool or “cover” to control people, giving them the illusion of free choice on a base level (like voting for your congress representative) but it’s ‘grid-lock’ at higher levels of power, a two-party system where decisions have already been made before any voter gets to ‘vote’ on them. Ironically, Williamson also acknowledged that we need to get away from this two-party system, but she did not address any topics that are actually at the root of this set-up.

454181537_640

The moment a political candidate brings up trigger/taboo topics, like questioning the official story of 9/11 or looking at Zionism and Psychopathy and how it influences US and world politics, his/her political career is over. In any true democratic society these topics would be discussed openly with all the critical thinking, facts and historical content, and especially at town hall meetings, but it’s all being suppressed, ignored and ridiculed. The result is that many people have opinions on these topics without having sincerely researched them in un-biased way. Williamson discussed the usual topics like many progressive/independent candidates have done before: Climate change, education, incarceration, economy, military industrial complex, health care, social security, etc……and that’s all well and good, but those issues are still symptoms of deeper problems that she did not fully acknowledge and doesn’t seem to be aware as we’ll see later. In the words of the late George Carlin:

“I think the system contracts and expands as it wants to. It accommodates these changes. I think the civil rights movement was an accommodation on the part of those who own the country. I think they see where their self-interest lies. They see a certain amount of freedom seems good, an illusion of liberty. Give these people a voting day every year so that they’ll have the illusion of meaningless choice… meaningless choice that we go like slaves and say, “Yeah, I voted.”

The limits of debate in this country are established before the debate even begins and everyone else is marginalized and made to seem either to be communists or some sort of disloyal person, a “kook”- there’s a word- and now it’s “conspiracy”, see? They’ve made that something that should not even be entertained for a minute; that powerful people might get together and have a plan. Doesn’t happen, you’re a kook, you’re a conspiracy buff!”

Some well-meaning people who go into politics raise some good points but still avoid issues that need to be addressed if we truly want change. Such is the dire state of open and honest social discourse in the US that, even meager attempts at honesty get shut down eventually and ignored. Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich come to mind. No change is going to happen through the system because if you don’t play by the rules and act “politically correct”, you don’t even get to play and the only way to “win” is to align with a world view that is pathological at its core for the simple reason that the world is run by psychopaths.

psychos_in_power

Williamson mentioned that we have an oligarchy, true, but it there is more to it. Fact is we live in a PathocracyDefinition: A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people. A totalitarian form of government in which absolute political power is held by a psychopathic elite, and their effect on the people is such that the entire society is ruled and motivated by purely pathological values. A pathocracy can take many forms and can insinuate itself covertly into any seemingly just system or ideology. As such it can masquerade under the guise of a democracy or theocracy as well as more openly oppressive regimes.

While most people focus on the symptoms, the underlying root cause of Psychopathology and how it affects society at large is ignored, denied or misunderstood. After Marianna Williamson’s talk I asked her if she’s aware of the topic of Psychopathy. See for yourself how she reacted and note how telling the reaction of the audience was:

I knew asking this question would raise some eyebrows but I sincerely did not expect the whole audience to break into spontaneous laughter at the mere mention of psychopaths in power.Notice also Williamson’s dismissive body language after I used that term: she smirked, looked at floor and fed the audience’s amusement about a topic that no one there had any understanding of.

So why the laughter? Well, maybe some people who are uncomfortable with this topic react with laughter to defuse the tension. But to me it sounded like they laughed because they truly found it funny as if it’s a ridiculous thing to even assume that people in power could be psychopaths.  Lambs to the slaughter.

It reminded me of this:

“One phenomenon all ponerogenic groups and associations have in common is the fact that their members lose (or have already lost) the capacity to perceive pathological individuals as such, interpreting their behavior in fascinated, heroic, or melodramatic ways. When the habits of subconscious selection and substitution of thought-data spread to the macrosocial level, a society tends to develop contempt for factual criticism and to humiliate anyone sounding an alarm.”

- Andrew M. Lobaczewski, Political Ponerology

It was interesting to experience for sure. Considering that the audience was basically filled with Marianne Williamson fans because of her work as a spiritual teacher, one would imagine that these people would be more aware and conscious of such topics. But that is another issue all together. I noticed that many of her supporters tend to automatically agree with anything she says, put her on a pedestal and dare not question anything she says, simply because she IS Marianne Williamson, the cherished well-known spiritual teacher and author who has been on Oprah no less!

But her reaction and what she said afterwards showed more of her own ignorance and lack of critical thinking. Let’s look at some of the things she said:

She says that “any person or system who doesn’t exercise from a place of remorse or with conscience is a sociopath. We have a so-called sociopathic economic system where conscience and remorse don’t play any part but short-term economic gain.”

Right away she uses the term sociopath and puts the focus on the system. But that’s not what I was talking about. There is a difference between a sociopath and a psychopath. What most people think as sociopaths are actually psychopaths. Yes, “conscience and remorse don’t play any part” in our system but it’s interesting to see how some people shy away from the term Psychopath or even laugh about it. Why is that? It seems related to the cultural conditioned view that psychopaths are insane serial killers we see in the movies or prisons, but would never appear in a suit and tie with the picture-perfect wife and family, speaking eloquently with confidence and inspiration, having power over a whole nation. Think again.

“Too many people hold the idea that psychopaths are essentially killers or convicts. The general public hasn’t been educated to see beyond the social stereotypes to understand that psychopaths can be entrepreneurs, politicians, CEOs and other successful individuals who may never see the inside of a prison….Psychopaths have what it takes to defraud and bilk others: They are fast-talking, charming, self-assured, at ease in social situations, cool under pressure, unfazed by the possibility of being found out, and totally ruthless. The psychopath can actually put themselves inside your skin intellectually, not emotionally. They can tell what you’re thinking, in a sense, they can look at your body language, they listen to what you’re saying, but what they don’t really do is feel what you feel. What this allows them to do is to use the words to manipulate and con and interact with you, without the baggage of this ‘I really feel your pain’ “

- Dr. Robert Hare, Without Conscience

Dr. Hare also addresses the difference between a sociopath and a psychopath:

“For most people, the confusion and uncertainty surrounding this subject begin with the word psychopathy itself. Literally it means “mental illness” (from psyche, “mind”; and pathos, “disease”), and this is the meaning of the term still found in some dictionaries. The confusion is compounded by the media use of the term as the equivalent of “insane” or “crazy”….

Most clinicians and researchers don’t use the term in this way; they know that psychopathy cannot be understood in terms of traditional views of mental illness. Psychopaths are not disoriented or out of touch with reality, nor do they experience the delusions, hallucinations, or intense subjective distress that characterize most other mental disorders. Unlike psychotic individuals, psychopaths are rational and aware of what they are doing and why. Their behavior is the result of choice, freely exercised….

Many researchers, clinicians, and writers use the terms psychopath and sociopath interchangeably…. Sometimes the term sociopathy is used because it is less likely than is psychopathy to be confused with psychoticism or insanity….

In many cases the choice of term reflects the user’s views on the origins and determinants of the clinical syndrome or disorder described in this book. Thus, some clinicians and researchers—as well as most sociologists and criminologists—who believe that the syndrome is forged entirely by social forces and early experiences prefer the term sociopath, whereas those—including this writer—who feel that psychological, biological, and genetic factors also contribute to development of the syndrome generally use the term psychopath. The same individual therefore could be diagnosed as a sociopath by one expert and as a psychopath by another.”

In another book co-authored by Dr. Hare with Dr. Paul Babiak called Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work, they compare psychopathy, sociopathy, and antisocial personality disorder APD:

“Many people are confused about the differences among psychopathy, sociopathy, and antisocial personality disorder. Although the terms frequently are treated as if they are interchangeable—by the general public and professionals alike—they refer to related but not identical conditions.

Psychopathy is a personality disorder described by the personality traits and behaviors that form the basis of this book. Psychopaths are without conscience and incapable of empathy, guilt, or loyalty to anyone but themselves.

Sociopathy is not a formal psychiatric condition. It refers to patterns of attitudes and behaviors that are considered antisocial and criminal by society at large, but are seen as normal or necessary by the subculture or social environment in which they developed. Sociopaths may have a well-developed conscience and a normal capacity for empathy, guilt and loyalty, but their sense of right and wrong is based on the norms and expectations of their subculture or group. Many criminals might be described as sociopaths.

Antisocial personality disorder (APD) is a broad diagnostic category found in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV). Antisocial and criminal behaviors play a major role in its definition and, in this sense, APD is similar to sociopathy. Some of those with APD are psychopaths, but many are not. The difference between psychopathy and antisocial personality disorder is that the former includes personality traits such as lack of empathy, grandiosity, and shallow emotion that are not necessary for a diagnosis of APD. APD is three or four times more common than psychopathy in the general population and in prisons. The prevalence of those we would describe as sociopathic is unknown but likely considerably higher than that of APD.”

Sociopaths do have some empathy and a sense of guilt—a conscience—but their empathy is reduced and selective, related to their upbringing and sub-cultural environment. A psychopath has no empathy and conscience at all. They can act and say all the right things, lie and manipulate without any inner conflict or emotions, immune to guilt, remorse and compassion.

Most importantly what I was hinting at in my question to Marianne Williamson is related to psychopaths based on biological/genetic factors as described in the work of the researchers I mentioned. It’s not a psychological disposition based on trauma or childhood wounds but a genetic one. These individuals can’t be “healed”, comprise at least 6% of humanity and are often to be found in positions of power. This is hard for most people to accept and understandably so considering all the cultural, religious and spiritual/new age programming and corruption that posits “we are all one” meme. This also has nothing to do with “us vs. them” in  the way some people like to argue, but about understanding how complex humanity actually is, what we choose to believe and wish for based on assumptions and what we avoid to look at and confront, within and without.

Let’s look deeper into the characteristics of a psychopath. As mentioned above there are born psychopaths, people who have no conscience/empathy by birth. However normal people can become ponerized, meaning they take on psychopathological traits through upbringing and conditioning, trying to adapt to a pathological society that has lost the capacity to perceive pathological individuals as such. It means that the person or group can no longer make the distinction between healthy and pathological thought processes and logic. One is no longer able to draw a line between correct thinking and deviate thinking. Genetic psychopaths make up about 6% of humanity while ponerization has a much higher number.

A lot of psychopathological traits have become normalized in human societies. Billions of people have been fed psychopathic belief systems and world views as the “way of life” through media, government, religion, entertainment and education. Our culture puts a lot of emphasis on image, status and appearance. Psychopaths have actually personality traits that many common people aspire to. The untroubled self-confidence of the psychopath is very alluring and is generally what “normal” people seek to acquire when they attend assertiveness/motivational or “pick up/dating” training classes. Likeable, Charming, Intelligent, Alert, Impressive, Confidence-inspiring, and A great success with the ladies: These are the sorts of descriptions repeatedly used by Cleckley in his case-studies of psychopaths, The Mask of Sanity

320336_10151158669068820_553350195_n

The psychopath’s Mask of Sanity is very important to understand. It gives him the cover to roam freely in our society, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Realizing early on life that he’s different from the rest, the psychopath learns to mimic emotional states and expressions without feeling them himself one bit. Without any internal conflict of guilt, remorse or shame, the psychopath manipulates the people around him. He can tell you exactly what you want to hear, appear compassionate and the good ones have a very convincing mask that is hard to see through. I takes time and a lot of observation. Psychopaths can be very intelligent with a high IQs. They can write scholarly works, imitate the words of emotion, but over time, it becomes clear that their words do not match their actions.

“Imagine – if you can – not having a conscience, none at all, no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members. Imagine no struggles with shame, not a single one in your whole life, no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action you had taken.

And pretend that the concept of responsibility is unknown to you, except as a burden others seem to accept without question, like gullible fools.

Now add to this strange fantasy the ability to conceal from other people that your psychological makeup is radically different from theirs. Since everyone simply assumes that conscience is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscience-free is nearly effortless.

You are not held back from any of your desires by guilt or shame, and you are never confronted by others for your cold-bloodedness. The ice water in your veins is so bizarre, so completely outside of their personal experience, that they seldom even guess at your condition.

In other words, you are completely free of internal restraints, and your unhampered liberty to do just as you please, with no pangs of conscience, is conveniently invisible to the world.

You can do anything at all, and still your strange advantage over the majority of people, who are kept in line by their consciences will most likely remain undiscovered.

How will you live your life?

What will you do with your huge and secret advantage, and with the corresponding handicap of other people (conscience)?

The answer will depend largely on just what your desires happen to be, because people are not all the same. Even the profoundly unscrupulous are not all the same. Some people – whether they have a conscience or not – favor the ease of inertia, while others are filled with dreams and wild ambitions. Some human beings are brilliant and talented, some are dull-witted, and most, conscience or not, are somewhere in between. There are violent people and nonviolent ones, individuals who are motivated by blood lust and those who have no such appetites. [...]

Provided you are not forcibly stopped, you can do anything at all.

If you are born at the right time, with some access to family fortune, and you have a special talent for whipping up other people’s hatred and sense of deprivation, you can arrange to kill large numbers of unsuspecting people. With enough money, you can accomplish this from far away, and you can sit back safely and watch in satisfaction. [...]

Crazy and frightening – and real, in about 4 percent of the population….”

- Martha Stout, Ph.D.

The key point is what Dr. Stout said here: Now add to this strange fantasy the ability to conceal from other people that your psychological makeup is radically different from theirs. Since everyone simply assumes that conscience is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscience-free is nearly effortless.

Most people assume that every human being essentially has a conscience or can change and become compassionate and empathetic. People tend to project positive qualities into some individuals which they don’t inherently have. We assume that the people in power, our (s)elected leaders, have the same conscience and emotions as we all do. Some people say that everyone has just issues and childhood wounds to work through on some level, even people in power, or as someone told me after Marianne Williamson’s talk when the topic of Psychopathy came up: “We are all psychopathic to varying degrees.”. Yes, sure, we all “issues”, but this is very different from having no conscience period. Not many people actually truly understand what we’re talking about here, they’ve never really studied the topic, yet they have opinions on it and can even laugh out loud about it in public.

It’s the basic logical fallacy, putting ones logic (conclusion) before grammar (research). Coupled with cognitive dissonance, since the acceptance of the truth could potentially upset one’s whole view of life and identified beliefs, the denial rate is still very high when it comes to this topic.

So much emphasis is put on immediate solutions, a new “system” of government or “fixing” the system, focusing on the education system, environment or trying to bring ethics back to Washington as M. Williamson stated.  Solutions are being presented but the problem itself, the root, is not even being understood in a basic way, not even considered.

Many “conscious” people who identify themselves with the “left”, liberal/progressive movement, politically or otherwise, seem to avoid looking at the nature of evil and understanding how societies are turned from something mutually beneficial and cooperative into virtual slave camps for the benefit of a few. “Good intentions” that are emotionally driven and based on wishful thinking do more harm than good, especially in the long run.

Nothing will change fundamentally until we educate ourselves about psychopathy and political ponerology and how it affects all of us. The virus of psychopathy will infect any new system, community or change in power until it is brought to awareness and looked at for what it is. Then the solutions will present themselves based on the knowledge and understanding we have gained. Educating ourselves and others about it is the best we can do for ourselves and future generations. It is vital knowledge in this day and age.

Going back to Marianne Williamson after her misinterpretation of the term “Psychopath”, she brought into focus the so-called sociopathic economic system, stressing that: “we don’t want a system where anybody purports to say that somebody else is a psychopath and therefore does not belong in office….let me tell you something, people like Hitler talked that way….this cannot be about demonizing individuals….this is about holding systems accountable….we wanna be real careful of anything psychological  ‘you are unfit for anything’ based on somebody’s psychological appraisal. Evil has been perpetrated  based on that……so the conversation is a conversation valid, absolutely….but in terms of individuals you wanna stay away from that.”

There are several fallacies in Williamson’s thinking here, chief among which is the fact that she engaged in a strawman argument, a common logical fallacy that politicians tend to use in order to distract or avoid answering questions directly.

Strawman argument, definition: “You misrepresented someone’s argument to make it easier to attack. By exaggerating, misrepresenting, or just completely fabricating someone’s argument, it’s much easier to present your own position as being reasonable, but this kind of dishonesty serves to undermine honest rational debate.”

I asked her if she’s aware of the topic of psychopathy and the research that has come out over the past years, which proves that there is a type of human being who has no conscience by birth and who gravitates towards positions of power, which results in a ponerized society.  The implications of psychopaths in high political office or as CEOs of big corporations and how they affect our society and world are self-evident and disturbing for anyone to see who understands this subject.

Yet she immediately diverted away from my point and focused on the system. Clearly Williamson is not aware of the deeper issues of psychopathy, which isn’t a problem per se, but in that case, she should have had the humility to say, “Well that’s an interesting topic and I feel I’m triggered by the word “psychopath” but I’d be interested to learn more about it” or something along those lines. What is it with people and especially politicians to always have to have an answer and appear “knowledgeable” to the point of having opinions about topics they do not understand and distort/misinterpret as a result of it, consciously or not? Well we know why, it’s about image and authority, appearing confident, self-assured and strong to gain the confidence and trust of their voters and generate donations for their campaign….ironically these are some of the traits psychopaths have perfected as well (no, I’m not implying that M. Williamson is a psychopath). With Williamson’s background as a “spiritual teacher” you’d think she wouldn’t fall into this manipulative political lingo with all the logical fallacies that usually go along with it.

She mentioned that it is about holding systems accountable but not demonizing individuals. This really makes no sense, since systems are created, used and abused by individuals. Focusing on fixing the system is like blaming a car because of a drunk driver is causing accidents. The same old mistake of focusing on the symptoms instead of getting at the root, a result of trying to present solutions too soon without having sincerely explored what the “problem” is to begin with. The system cannot be fixed. It has been designed that way since the get-go, but we’ve been living under these political systems and governments for so long that we don’t even question them anymore, but accept them like in a global Stockholm Syndrome, idealizing them and not seeing reality for what it is. We are so conditioned and programmed that we don’t even question the need of a “government” to begin with. Those that are given the opportunity to do so, seem to experience some kind of brain freeze that prevents them from really considering that question deeply.

Most people are afraid of the “chaos” that they believe would ensure if there were no government or authority to ‘lead’ them, which is ultimately rooted in the fear of true freedom and taking responsibility. The reality is that governments and power in the hands of a few are the reason our ‘modern’ society is descending further and further into the chaos that so many fear. Many people ask, well what “solution” do you have then? Looking at the world as it IS is the first step before presenting any “solutions”. As Krishnamurti said: “It’s like trying to change the tapestry in a prison cell, believing this brings more freedom instead of breaking down the prison walls”, or like cutting the branches of a tree, which will grow back eventually. The root needs to be tackled and the root issue is psychopaths in power. A careful study of this topic and our (true) history shows this to be true, with little doubt.

“An Ideal is merely an escape, an avoidance of what is, a contradiction of what is. An ideal prevents direct action upon what is. To have peace, we will have to love, we will have to begin not to live an ideal life but to see things as they are and act upon them, transform them.”

- Krishnamurti

Williamson also used the word “demonizing” which is not what I implied and actually a very bad word to use in this context that also distorts the issue at hand, especially with her poor example of “Hitler has done that”. I find her lingo very manipulative, an attempt to get the audience on her side by distorting the main point. She basically misunderstood and twisted my main point, which would have been clear to her if she truly understood psychopathy and ponerology. Knowledge and Understanding of this topic can actually help us to prevent individuals like Hitler rising to power in the first place. And yes, some individuals are NOT fit to be in office or positions of power, where his/her decisions affect the life of millions, if not billions, of people. I think this should be fairly obvious.

For example anyone who wants to become a police officer has to pass a psychological screening. The psychological evaluation is part of the process of determining whether an applicant is suited for the position. Makes sense, no? We want to make sure that our police officers are mentally stable to be enforcers of the law. Of course, looking a the police brutality these days, one must wonder what kind of test this is and what laws are they enforcing, so mere “psychological screening” is not enough. What is their psychological screening based on anyway? Again, if the topic of psychopathy is not fully understood and applied in such “screenings” we have psychopaths and Authoritarian Followers with guns in their hands, authorized to shoot and arrest people at will, and with increasing impunity.

Now look at politics. Theoretically anyone with enough money, the right connections, image and a certain mind state ( playing the “game” with all the “political correctness” to hand) can become president of this country. There is zero psychological evaluation to become commander-in-chief who has the power over the biggest military force of the world. Doesn’t this strike you a bit as odd?

So, yes, I’d certainly advocate for psychological screenings, even brain scans. It is about individuals and NOT the system. It’s about people not ideologies. However, I agree that we need to be careful about it as Williamson said. Before we can get to any solutions and apply any such ideas, we need to educate ourselves and others about what we’re actually dealing with. Psychology and psychiatry has also become corrupted and that’s where the true danger lies when the system and the powers that be are using those disciplines for their own agenda. Before you know it, even  “Truth Seeking” will be branded as a mental illness. Oh, wait…

Gaining Knowledge, which leads to Understanding needs to happen first, educating ourselves first before coming to conclusions and then act on the understanding gained and presenting solutions. It’s the basic application of the Trivium and critical thinking which I’ve written about before.

Trivium

Williamson also mentioned  that “Evil has been perpetrated  based on [somebody's psychological appraisal]“. Yes, sure lots of evil is perpetrated through the corruption of science – including psychology – because of psychopaths in power. But again, she’s got it all backwards because she starts from a misinterpretation of the actual issue due to her lack of knowledge, and comes to conclusions based on assumptions.

First of all, what is “evil”? At least she seems to acknowledge that there is evil and doesn’t fall into the abstract and pseudo-spiritual idea that there is “no evil” on our level of existence as so many people tend to do based on Solipsism, a very illusory ideology in todays “New Age” movement. Solipsism is based on the idea that there is no objective truth, a topic I have explored in more depth before. Yes, there IS objective truth and objective reality.

Polish psychiatrist Andrew Lobaczewski coined the word Ponerology. It comes from greek (poneros = evil) and is the study of evil. From the foreword of Lobaczewski’s groundbreaking work “Political Ponerology”:

“Ponerology reveals itself to be a new branch of science born out of historical need and the most recent accomplishments of medicine and psychology. In light of objective naturalistic language, it studies the causal components and processes of the genesis of evil, regardless of the latter’s social scope. We may attempt to analyze these ponerogenic processes which have given rise to human injustice, armed with proper knowledge, particularly in the area of psychopathology. Again and again, as the reader will discover, in such a study, we meet with the effects of pathological factors whose carriers are people characterized by some degree of various psychological deviations or defects.”

To truly understand the significance of his work, it is important to know the history of how this book came about because Lobaczewski went through a lot of suffering and sacrifice to get this material published. There have been many attempts to destroy his work.

“The original manuscript of this book went into the furnace minutes before a secret police raid in Communist Poland. The second copy, painfully reassembled by scientists working under impossible conditions of violence and repression, was sent via courier to the Vatican. Its receipt was never acknowledged – the manuscript and all valuable data lost.

He was forced to emigrate to the United States in 1977. Even in America, he continued to find himself hounded by forces that opposed him. But he struggled on, finally finishing the manuscript for the third version of the book, including what he was able to reconstruct without access to the lost original research, in New York in 1984.

This manuscript was met with suppression. In a particularly fascinating episode,  Zbigniew Brzezinski, famed political scientist and former National Security Advisor under President Jimmy Carter, first offered to help get it published, but then, instead, worked to oppose its publication. Ultimately, Lobaczewski was unable to get the book published while he was in the United States. In 1990, he returned to Poland quite ill and rather destitute and only survived at all due to care provided by old friends who were doctors.”

He was finally able to publish his book with the help of a research group that has studied similar topics for many years.  After half a century of suppression, this book has finally become available.

And here we see another problem. Vital knowledge and research that could help humanity as a whole has been suppressed and even destroyed by pathological individuals in power throughout history. The information in this book is important for anyone to be aware of, so that we truly learn from history and understand the underlying root issue of why the world is as it is and why no true change is going to happen by trying to tackle the system and present solutions without scientific and objective knowledge of evil as a foundation to work from, from which the solutions will then emerge. It’s part of our ‘shadow work’, to make the darkness conscious within AND without.

“Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.” – Sun Tzu

The major theme of Lobaczewski’s book is that if world civilization is to survive and thrive it must learn how to deal with evil individuals who seek its destruction. It is essential that objective scientific studies continue be pursued in order that humanity may come to recognize evil when they see it and learn how to combat it. That’s the only way to re-install morality and ethics (as Williamson says her intention is). In fact, before we can talk about systems, this is where we need to start, and it requires much work and effort because the psychopaths in power are doing their best to suppress this knowledge. However, their Achilles heel is wishful thinking, believing themselves to be untouchable, even as they destroy themselves like a deadly virus that kills the host and essentially itself.

Instead of advocating and citing “A Course in Miracles” as Williamson is doing, almost using this very questionable channeled material as her foundation, she’d be better advised to lay that “teaching” aside and deal with objective reality and the scientific study of psychopathy, because she’s heading right into the center of the beast, or at least she’s trying.  I have read and studied “A Course in Miracles” and did all the exercises many years ago when I wasn’t very discerning. It took me a while until I saw the red flags and the mind control/self-hypnosis of this teaching (ultimately promoting Solipsism) and how it put me more to sleep,  all the while dreaming that I was awake. Even if there is some truth in it, but the best way to swallow a lie is to sandwich it between some truth. It’s the most efficient way to spread disinformation. There is also some interesting connection of the group who “channeled” this material to the CIA. And that ties into New Age Cointelpro.

We won’t see “Political Ponerology” or similar works being promoted on Oprah anytime soon. It’s up to us to actively seek out this knowledge and educate ourselves and others about it. This topic is imperative to understand for anyone involved in any “conscious movements” or anyone who is trying to make this world a better place for ourselves and future generations. It doesn’t matter what your work is and what medium of expression you choose, what party and religion you belong to and identify yourself with. Psychopathy and Ponerization affect all of us. Most importantly, don’t judge something or present solutions if you haven’t sincerely studied  it first.  Or, in the words of Andrew Lobaczewski: “Do not attempt to cure what you do not understand.”

If Marianne Williamson was sincere when she said  “the conversation is a conversation valid, absolute!” and earlier in her talk: “Until we deal with the cancer that underlies all these problems, until we deal with the underlying issue of all these problems, we will not be able to handle the derivative problems.” then I’d hope she’ll engage in some reading as well as those who supports her. The cancer eating away at humanity’s body is Psychopathy and the ponerization of human society. But this is not about her personally. She has good intentions, I suppose. This is about all of us coming to terms with and understanding a very serious and troubling issue our planet is facing, so we can have an intelligent conversation based on objective reality. The truth is the truth (not “my” or “your” truth) and no one said it would be easy or comfortable. The longer we avoid it, the harder it’ll get and the deeper we dig our own graves. Sorry to sound bleak, but disillusionment is part of the process. The universe is very impersonal when it comes to Truth. Either we align ourselves with it or we will perish.

Finally, I’ve heard many people stating that M. Williamson gives them hope…..similar to the way many people felt about Obama in 2008. But there is something to be said about “hope” as historian Richard M. Dolan said at the “Awake and Aware Conference” in LA in 2009:

“Hope and fear: Fear is an enemy. We know this because when we are afraid, we react irrationally to things, we don’t think through. Hope is an enemy, too, though. That sounds kind of wrong, doesn’t it? Everyone likes to have hope: Don’t give up hope. But, here’s the problem with hope: Hope also deludes. We need to have a cold eye. We have to be able to look at reality in as alert and awake a fashion as we can. What is true higher consciousness? Well, it starts with awareness, with seeing things as they are, not as you want them to be, not as you hope they can be – you have to see them as they are. It is only through going over that first large hurdle, I feel, that we can really attain a true higher consciousness, a true awareness in which we are awake, not asleep.”
