An Essay on Narcissistic Elitist Sociopathic Disorder & How To Kill It
The Sociopaths Are Running The Asylum.
And are we surprised?
The tide has turned again. The World is fighting against the progressive. The old men on the corporate boards, the monopolist media committees, the political advisory units, the think tanks – and all the money-men who aspire to be like them – have slammed their collective fist on the boardroom table. They have demanded that the groundswell be stopped.
They’ve done this before.
The shared fruits of the golden era of industry (and WW1, for the ‘winners’) were withdrawn by rolling out the Great Depression. And followed up with another, even more massive, global conflict.
The post-WW2 boom of the 50’s (for the ‘winners’) and the peace & love revolution of the 60’s were literally killed by rolling out the military-industrial complex and its various assassins.
The monopolistic corporate structure of our capitalist democracies held up the carrot, sharing the trinkets and the toys of consumerism, at a cost. Most of us inherited that – were born into it, and knew no different.
But then it became more and more apparent that the perpetually-growing economy was a myth, and that the architects and operators of it were siphoning and leeching, that the public purse was being raided in any and every way imaginable. Recessions followed – and cash was extracted from the system to ‘right the ship’.
Then the concept of recession needed an upgrade, and it became the ‘financial crisis’, which required further ‘austerity’ to correct the cash vacuum in economies the world over.
But this time the bankers were caught with their hands in the till. The massive theft was exposed. And it was clear that this was just a repeat of an old con-job, only bigger and with a clear purpose – to bankrupt the world, to reverse universal wealth expansion and claw it back into the pockets of the privileged men of calibre.
In the process, any weakening of their position was halted. Because, and despite the fact that the fraud was globally broadcast, the institutions that foster and commit the thievery and the fraud were only too quick to let the world know that they were simply ‘too big to fail’. Society would collapse without the pillars of commerce and industry. And the bail-out fix was in.
Whether you perceive it as a global phenomenon, an American (U.S.) thing, an Anglo- construct, an artefact of ‘western civilisation’, or simply a symptom of the human condition, everywhere there is a layer of the broader financial system – entrenched within the political sphere and promoted by the influential mainstream media – that believes it is owed a debt by the society it operates in.
The un-diagnosed epidemic of our times, sociopathic disorders. The symptom of the disease, overt narcissism. The infected victims and the carriers of the illness are everywhere. And by the sheer virtue of their disease, they are either running the show, or they have set a course for the top tiers of society. They self-identify. They are pack animals with a nose for their fellow sociopaths.
The crimes committed in their service are absolutely justifiable and are simply the means to an end. Wherever you find them – on the board, on the committee, or in the media, or even just anyone who openly or secretly aspires to their lofty heights – they are the narcissistic sociopaths. They are the most dangerous of the human animals, and know themselves to be the alpha dogs among the hungry pack, and they are solely focused on the satiation of their perceived needs. They will never yield to pressure from the sane and the brave among us, no matter how logical the argument – they believe their own position so deeply and so viscerally, that anything challenging the world-view of the narcissistic sociopath is discarded and thrown aside, anathema to their destiny.
They continue to win and continue to have their beliefs reinforced every time one of us gives up the fight, or caves in to ‘the system’. And this Shit’s Gotta Stop – at every opportunity there should be a veritable militia doing whatever it takes to take a shot at the narcissistic sociopath, wherever they are found.
Confronted, brutally and from every direction, over and over again, with evidence of the negative consequences of their life, their business, their politics – eventually, when the critical mass is achieved, when enough of the bastards know that their game is up – the house of cards will begin to shake, the emperors clothes will lose opacity, and the power will drain away, revealing all the emptiness that lies behind the curtain.
The warden will be strapped down to the gurney, and the therapy can begin.
