The American Empire, A Pathocracy In Action
“Pathocracy from Greek pathos, ‘feeling, pain, suffering’; and kratos, ‘rule’
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.” https://pathocracy.wordpress.com/definition/
Several weeks ago I described America as an empire in decline and promised to revisit this topic in successive weeks. Although the United Sates is only two hundred forty one years old, it is already a global empire albeit one in rapid decline. Since its inception this country has engaged in a murderous, expansionist imperial rampage to the point it now defines itself as the preeminent and indispensible nation in the world. This self-delusional narcissism has fueled an increasing megalomania and push for total global hegemony. This psychopathy is promoted by the ruling class’s mind control apparatus/propaganda machine designed to recruit canon fodder for the ubiquitous wars, interventions and covert ops the ruling class uses to acquire and maintain their ill gotten resources, spoils and booty from around the world while controlling the masses here in the United States.
When we examine American society critically we are struck by the acute hypocrisy and schizophrenia it demonstrates. We notice the leaders speak of liberty while becoming rich off of the African slave trade and modern prison labor, they speak of peace while waging incessant war, they talk of equality yet maintain egregious gender, color and class disparities in wealth and opportunity, they talk about life yet engage in global ecocide and genocide.
This perverse mentality springs from the consciousness and cultural norms of the European ethos, harkening to their ancestral love of violence, rapine, plunder and looting. Today the ruling class wear expensive suits whereas their Goth, Visigoth, Osteogoth, Vandal, Frank, Jute, Pic, Anglo, Saxon, Norman ancestors wore
animal skins and crudely fashioned clothing; nevertheless their mentality is the same. Today they speak of Judaeo-Christian values as the foundation of their culture yet just like the Roman Empire, they use religion as a tool for imperialism, conquest and subjugation, then turn around and use the same religion as a tool of indoctrination to oppress and dominate their victims to make them docile and acquiesce to their debasement.
Astute folks refer to America as a pathocracy, a nation ruled by psychopaths, worshipers of evil and practitioners of demonic occultism. America for all intents and purposes is a criminogenic society. http://disinfo.com/2010/10/pathocracy-is-civilization-the-creation-of-psychopaths/, http://barbariansinsuits.net , http://drsircus.com/world-news/psychopaths-rule-our-world-medicine-politics-and-war/ , http://www.wanttoknow.info/mk/liftingtheveil#15
The signs are all omnipresent yet most don’t see them because we have been brainwashed, hoodwinked and bamboozled to view the world through a prism fashioned by our psychopathic overlords; a prism that severely distorts reality, creates illusions and stimulates mindless consumption, obedience and compliance.
The cumulative psychopathy is metastasizing throughout this society. The plutocrats’ mind control apparatus glorifies degeneracy, decadence, war, self-indulgence, narcissism and exploitation all day all the time. When we look at our own communities we see the deleterious impact of media consumption, the self-indulgence, narcissism and mindless adulation of the “celebrities” and degenerates the ruling class set before us to imitate. The hoochie momma, squeezer, thug and playah stereotypes promoted in books, by the record companies, videos, reality shows, radio, and movies have psychically reengineered our people and are contributing to our maladaptive responses to our condition in this country.
It is time for us to wake up and fortify ourselves against the moral rot engulfing this nation and the world. It is imperative we have our own media, one that focuses on liberation, empowerment that speaks our truth. The great Marcus Garvey spoke and wrote about the importance of propaganda how we should use it to fight the negative stereotypes perpetrated by our enemies and create positive images of ourselves, that tell our history and provide a vision for our future. (Marcus Garvey Life and Lessons edited by Robert A. Hill and Barbara Bair Lesson 16 page 289). We need more serious books, more righteous Websites, more Internet radio, television and streaming venues to tell our stories and bombard our psyches with positive images and messages. We must exert our energies to establish, support and maintain our own media to tell our stories from our perspective to accomplish our goals and not those of our adversaries.
