Narcissism and Sociopathy The Big Sell Out


What is for sale in this capitalist society? Everything necessary to sustain life. Trees, air, water, animals. The corporate world wants access to whatever it can use. It wants the cheapest way to make their product, to dispose of waste, poisons into what we eat and drink and breathe. It is unconcerned that whales are full of plastic, that animals are dying because what they eat has been wiped out by chemicals or made lethal to them.. “45” offers freedom to his corporate cronies and in return he feels their love.

People who crave adulation go into show business. People who crave power go into politics. “45” by chance went from show business to presidency and now does them both. Because the Democrats thought the much disliked Hillary would walk off with the election, people voted for “45.”

Narcissists think It’s all about me. Their fragile ego needs endless inflation.
Sociopaths have no conscience for the damage that they have done. Their mind does not review their actions. If others blame them for inflicting injury, they call it “false news” or blame someone else for doing it.

Every day another horror is loosed upon the world. Two days ago, restraints on water pollution were removed by “45.” Don’t drink the water. It will kill you. Today, “45” wants to drill for gas and oil in the Arctic Refuge. Some will make a lot of money from this and will love “45” in return. Arctic dwellers and environmentalist beg “45” to spare the Wildlife Refuge. The local tribe, the Guich’in speak of death of the caribou which means the death of their people. We all speak about losing polar bears and foxes and birds and wolves and ….. ourselves.


“45”says that the losses will be small and unimportant. There is no conscience here. “45’s” sons like to kill vanishing species of animals in Africa. They are unhappy about not being allowed to bring back the body as a trophy. “45” may get that law erased.


We need to come alive. We cannot let a few millionaires and billionaires walk off with the spoils while destroying Mother Earth with extraction and with war. Bezos, the richest man in the world pays his workers too little to survive. We buy his goods. We can stop buying.


We need to start fixing or removing what we know is wrong. We need to learn more about the environment, about those people and practices that will destroy it. We cannot get the politicians to join us in our struggle regardless of what they say. They are owned by the corporations which paid the cost of their running for office. Corporate debt controls their actions. Politicians lie about their intentions. If they are on the corporate payroll, they speak only to win our vote. Then back to pleasing their corporate master. We needn’t elect those who want war everywhere and release bombs that destroy the ozone layer. They want money. We want life.

.We need leaders who are free of greed. Like Sweden’s Greta Thunberg, 16 year old whose life is devoted to getting us all to act. It is Greta’s example that got me to write this. It is who she who makes me consider what to do next. Please join us.

A Narcissist Steals and Kills

Narcissists see everything in terms of whether it makes them more powerful and important. The Old Testament was written by a narcissist who created god in his own image. It says that the Earth was given by god to man to take care of. Man interprets this gift as ownership. We own, use, take, destroy. We live in the power of the moment. There is no future in our thinking. Ownership separates the owner from what is owned. There is no family of man.  

Everything is to be used up, ignored or, poisoned if it stands in our way or to earn from our poisoning capacity. Destroying things hurts us less if we remain in the now. Memory is lost. Christina has a photo of a solitary turtle swimming in a pond. I think, how lonely that little fellow is, how sad.

I remember when there were thousands of turtles in the water and frogs perched on the bank waiting to swallow flies. It was so much fun to run to the bank and jump in and to hear splashing all around me. There were so many insects pollinating every blossom, lightning bugs blinking on and off at dusk. There was a chorus of birds at dawn. Not an occasional solitary tweet. 

The mystic businessman who received Earth from god puts earth inside his safe. His banker mentality makes earth a thing to possess, not a living spirit, a Gaia of which he/we all are a part. He creates corporations that sweep up and transform trees, water,plants, animals,coal, oil, man as worker into bucks. Everything has a price. There is no bird song in it. The Old Testament where man owns the earth is a hell hole of destruction. 

We have to give up ownership of life. We need to join the family of animals and plants and life. We need a spiritual connection that does not inflate and separate us. Then we will not want to live in a Mar a Largo at any cost.

MAGA – back to what?

What are we returning to and why? Genetically there is only one race: human. Darker skin from staying in the tropics, lighter skin and hair and eyes, from traveling to northern reaches with little sun. Essentially no difference. Blacks stupider and more sexual, a myth used to keep them in their places.

Why do we want to separate ourselves into those who have more and those who have less? Think of where this county came from, the thing we are reaching for again. Oh yes. Kill the Indians who claim land ownership so that those with weapons can take it. Kill those who resist and stand in our way.

Women, into the kitchen as servant to her man; having and raising children. Cooking and cleaning. It shocks to hear women saying that is their rightful place. Who wrote the bible anyway that says such things. Men of course claiming it to be a dictate of god. Whose god? What kind of god?

The so-called inferior blacks. The very white standing at the top of the hill need slaves. The western bibles hated the dark man too. The rejected people now serve in prisons. They work for a couple of dollars a day, rented to outside corporations, a new kind of slavery and little more. Those who created prisons have taken away job training.  Make the pay for whatever crime they committed because they were enraged by having so little, or didn’t commit at all but where are the well-trained lawyers to defend them. Corporations make more when their workers are incarcerated = slaves.

So we have as we had, a nation founded on take it. And it still takes it. There are wars for natural resources. There are wars to fund the people who make and sell and rent the war machinery. There are wars for money and power. Just like it was then.

And we allow it because we believe the war stimulating stories we are pounded with from radio, TV, internet, about how some nation threatens us; A nation that wreaks havoc so that a tiny minority at the top can profit. For the sake of having a real and true identity, of helping all people and animals and plant life survive,  for having air we can breathe and water we an drink we do not need MAGA. Return to the future by supporting life now.

    The Art of Distraction

 

The Republicans have a clown, a man from 3 generations of fraud making outrageous statements, engaging in all kinds of antisocial actions: sexual attacks of women, misogyny, theft, grandiose statements that are false and on and on.

What is the benefit of such a leader? We are horrified as our attention is drawn to yet another transgression. The far-right religious group declares him to be an immature Christian or another form of God to be worshiped); moved to overlook and forget the facts. They overlook a total reversal of his pre-election promises to give them support, health care, jobs. They forget the enormous tax breaks given to the rich, money that would have pad for what he promised. Drawn by our horror over his breaking societal rules, we don’t notice  placement of a flood of judges that will support environmental destruction, put the lower screwed class in jail for almost anything which makes money for prison owners.

What is the clown of distraction for the Democrats who do not do a single thing to reverse the current direction of our government giving it all to the rich while complaining about it, of course? It is the Mueller report being indecisive about whether Trump was aided by the Russians to win the election. The decision about obstruction is left to the senators. They scream about seeing a redacted version. Of course, they should see it all. But there is a lot more going on in addition to Mueller.

Why do they fixate on this report and not upon what 45 is doing to our country from which it will likely never recover? While this compelling circus of the Mueller’s report is going on, 45 fills the pockets of the rich by supporting extractive attacks on the environment. oil pipes and gas pipes are drilled to carry oil and gas, pipes which contaminate the water with endless spills, pollution is dumped into rivers and oceans, Obama’s restrictions are undone. Forest fires spread as a result of carbon burning drought. Islands stink beneath the waves. Coral dries and dies, killing all the living things that live on and among it.

We do not notice because our mind is on the Mueller report. We do not notice because we watch the  clown in office.  And when he is gone, what he has done will remain.

  Lying

 

We live in an era of the lie. “45” started lying from his early years, part of the family way of financially getting ahead fast. Woodie Guthrie, the great song writer lived in one of his Dad’s apartments and wrote a song about their cheating tenants. It was and is a family tradition with all the construction workers barely or totally unpaid. Also, undocumented immigrants working for various “45”-establishements.

So, fraud is in the air. Politicians whom we childishly regard as highly developed moral folk, are given money by corporations to create bills or sign corporate created bills which support the corporation. Why are so willingly taken in? Why the national regression to childish trust? The papers we read often polish our acquiescence. Papers are owned by corporations and make their money via corporate sales, not much from readers.

We are told by commercial adds and corporate owned newspapers and internet and tv programs, that those who question lying politicians are socialists or some other negative name. We swallow it all, act like children with protective parents which they definitely-are not.

And what does our own lying do to us? It makes us false in our own eyes. The more we lie the worse we feel…. and then the more we lie. Lying makes us feel inadequate so then we lie some more. The more we lie the more we think we need to lie as if stating the truth it will destroy us. It is like covering burning coals with straw which also will soon be aflame, so we add more straw.

The more we lie to one another, the less the trust them. It is self-referential sequence, thinking that they hate us because we hate ourselves. Pretty soon we adrift in a mass of liars who see everyone as their enemy. Lying creates isolation which makes us more susceptible to a lying government we see as parent. They lie about immanent threat to take whatever money we are holding on to. Lying makes us susceptible and weak. Lying takes away our common sense.

Solution. Tell the truth to everyone. Know a lie when you hear it and say that is not truthful. Do not settle for a paranoid solution, you and I back to back against them. Truth and love are the same. Do you want to love and be loved? Be real.

The Government Shutdown is Not About a Wall

There are those who believe in speeches. We should not fall for words. Words have many purposes, often to convince us to believe in lies. There are those who believe 45’s projection of violence, rape and drugs by southern immigrants. They fall for something without a drop of evidence. Some of these people donate money to build the wall.

If you want to learn the meaning behind a request, look at what is used to convince you. Does the request greatly threaten you? Is your idealization and belief manufactured by it? Is it like a kidnapping where you fall in love with the person who abducts you? That is call the Stockholm Syndrome. You fall in love with your captor in hope that love will keep him from murdering you.

Shutting down government is like a kidnapping that is spreading like a plague. People who examine luggage in air ports are unpaid and often call in sick; workers, did not stop a man from walking by them with a gun. Sea rangers, national park rangers are not there to take out the garbage and guard trees; so many people without food stamps, without money to pay the rent, car insurance, mortgages, losing their houses, medical care, survival.

This presidential withholding of Federal assistance is no coincidence. Those who say that “45” has no idea of how Federal money is used are right and wrong. He may not know the details but he knows how to make demands.

You know how “45” loves tyrants like Putin in Russia and Duterte in the Philippines who has vowed to kill everyone connected with the drug trade and everyone else who opposes him. Trump sees goodness in who those who suck the wealth into their own pockets and kill to get things done.

And 5 billion is only a starter. The wall will cost must more to cover the area  and of course will be ineffective. It is not hard to dig a tunnel. Only the animals seeking a larger area to find food and sexual partners to spread and strengthen the herd, these will perish. Drug dealers do not march to the US across deserts. They come in planes and trucks.

The immigrants come from communities where death is visiting in the hands of drug dealers demanding money, membership or both; they come from, communities where US vegetable factory farms, supported by Congress, under price the local farmers and put them out of business. Few raise corn in Mexico now. Who can afford to make tortillas. Do we know this?

The US, our government is creating hordes of terrified and starving people who come to our borders, particularly to save their children. Our corporate supported elected officials keep silent and will not vote to end the government shutdown. Mitch McConnell will not do it. How do we react to official paralysis, fear and greed? The French “Yellow Jackets” are in the street about being out priced and overlooked. They outnumber the police and are ever growing numbers. The Prime Minister is worried.

Beset by government shut down, are we US citizens, merely going to sit home, hold our breath and pray?
