The Pathocracy Behind the Curtain
I intend to offer here what I believe to be another piece to the final key of understanding mass human tragedy. So many brave people have been speaking out against several different negative aspects of our society since time immemorial but I cannot help but feel there is an aspect of folly in such battles without trying to understand the origin of them. We can fill libraries with tomes of genocides, violent conquests, revolutions, unspeakable evils done to children in the names of misguided ideals, et cetera, however we seem to repeat these very same tragic circumstances over and over again. How is it that our very well educated politicians and thought leaders can lead us down these all too familiar paths into darkness? The reality is that the cycle human civilization inevitably results in is the same type of government: Pathocracy. Political science experts argue until their faces turn whatever color they associate with, yet they seem to fail to recognize the telltale signs of a genuinely corrupt establishment that no longer functions any purpose other than to perpetuate its own power. It does not matter if it began as Communism, Capitalism, Democracy, Socialism, or a Republic, corruption finds its way into all forms of organization because corruption has a powerful biological and psychological component. When I’ve presented this hypothesis to others, I was met with severe disbelief, yet when I would ask these detractors to explain cult leaders, murderers and rapists, they could not satisfactorily respond because this is a subject difficult to understand without the proper vocabulary. I will be basing this article off of the incredibly insightful book “Political Ponerology” by Andrew Lobaczewski. At times I will directly deliver material from the book because our author was a psychologist who lived through a Pathocracy himself, and his descriptions are far more clear and illuminating than I could hope to deliver. I will also be incorporating material from my previous article about pathological thinking as well.
I had hoped to be able to simply write posts about psychology and the human condition, but I can no longer hold my tongue on the pathological foolishness I’ve been seeing over the past two years concerning the response to COVID-19. Let us be very clear: the SARS-CoV-2 “vaccines” have been proven to not work as promised, and have potentially infinite risk because we have zero long term data. Masks do not work against transmission of aerosolized viruses, we have known this and consistently have proven this for decades now. Worst of all, there is little room for debate as censorship has been more rampant in the past two years than ever before in the history of the United States. Anyone demanding these measures is either lying about their effectiveness to control you, or they themselves are under the spell of deeply pathological mental processes. It’s extremely clear to me that many politicians are being immorally leveraged to push procedures that simply do not work on their citizens. I’ve been self-teaching myself about various subjects of the human condition and I’ve been well aware of the rise of what is referred to as “Pathocracy” worldwide. Watching the atrocities occurring around the world in the name of “public health,” and “science” as well as the growing threat of legal repercussions for criticizing failed policies, I’ve decided I’ve been silent long enough.
I hope that by the end of this article you will not only understand what you have been lied to about, but why and where it is going. There are two particular groups that are the main drivers of Pathocracy: the psychopathological and those easily susceptible to the formers influence. It is absolutely vital to understand that humanity has always had these darkly abnormal, pathological people amongst them since the dawn of the species. These “deviants” aren’t any specific culture, identity group or race of people, instead they’re present in a small percentage of all population groups. They steal into already created political or ideological groups and use them as a shield for their nefarious activities. They have been the cause of many of our worst human made tragedies, and they will never be stopped until we recognize them for what they are biologically. These psychologically deviant people can act as a disease and when society’s “immune system” weakens through fear and hysteria, they take power and infect society at large. Corporations, government and media should not be considered separate entities if they share individuals with similar psychological deviations that demonstrate as pathological.
Before I continue, a warning: after coming to understand what I have to present, it may cause you to be extremely angry once you’ve recognized how you’ve been abused. The compulsion for extreme measures to be taken against psychologically deviant people will be extraordinarily strong. Lobaczewski observes: “Our zeal to control anyone harmful to ourselves or our group is so primal in its near-reflex necessity as to leave no doubt that it is also encoded at the instinctual level. Our instinct, however, does not differentiate between behavior motivated by simple human failure and behavior performed by individuals with pathological aberrations.” [p.44] We must fight these instincts, and in doing so, we must convince those that are pathologically affected to fight their own instincts as well. There will be no lasting solution to this issue in humanity if we do not accept the biological reality that there are people with psychological deviations completely separate to our own and that extreme measures only create more pathological thinking in the population as a whole. The issue is, ultimately, one of understanding.
Recent calculations place deaths as a direct result of the mRNA vaccines to be approximately 150,000 in the USA alone. Contrasting with the completely and utterly disingenuous numbers of “800,000 deaths with COVID.” Combined with the largest censorship campaign the world has ever faced in order to cover up these damages, this is unacceptable. These treatments do not work. They have no value to anyone, especially when we lack any long term data whatsoever. All of the data coming out from the pharmaceutical companies has been manipulated to look like they are effective, but are totally meaningless when placed alongside the real world data. The reality will shock you: we are besieged by pathological organizations ingrained in our governments, and it is resulting in the costly war this country has ever faced. More American citizens have died from these “vaccines” than died in the Vietnam War, which was another completely nonsense conflict pushed by those in power. The utter failure of vaccine passports and mask mandates is not up for discussion within the corporate media or government, demonstrating that there is a pathological aspect at play. I’m not innocent either unfortunately. I know many people that got the “vaccines” even after I knew for a fact that they were absolutely ineffective and potentially life-threatening. I didn’t say anything because I had hoped if enough people got their jabs, the entire scenario would turn positive. I didn’t say anything out of fear of being ridiculed or worse: being killed because these organizations have no qualms with assassination, character or physical. It is a childish idea to believe that we have become more sophisticated than our past Human atrocities and we must accept that there is something within us as a species that enables this cycle of hurt.
The entirety of mass media has been misrepresenting this entire “pandemic” from the start. By design, anyone that would even suggest such corruption would be labeled a “conspiracy theorist.” All of these different aspects and more come together to demonstrate that we are living within a Pathocracy. Anyone that would deny we are living within a psychologically corrupted government has zero understanding of history from a psychological perspective and I will demonstrate exactly how Pathocracies have risen and will rise again in the future. Let us begin breaking down the psychopathological ingredients of our current plight:
During “happy times” of peace dependent upon social injustice, children of the privileged classes learn to repress from their field of consciousness the uncomfortable ideas suggesting that they and their parents are benefiting from injustice against others. Such young people learn to disqualify and disparage the moral and mental values of anyone whose work they are using to over-advantage. Young minds thus ingest habits of subconscious selection and substitution of data, which leads to a hysterical conversive economy of reasoning. They grow up to be somewhat hysterical adults who, by means of the ways adduced above, thereupon transmit their hysteria to the next generation, which then develops these characteristics to an even greater degree. The hysterical patterns for experience and behavior grow and spread downwards from the privileged classes until crossing the boundary of the first criterion of ponerology [the study of the genesis of evil]: the atrophy of natural critical faculties with respect to pathological individuals.
This atrophy in logic eventually can result in paranoid character disorders:
It is characteristic of paranoid behavior for people to be capable of relatively correct reasoning and discussion as long as the conversation involves minor differences of opinion. This stops abruptly when the partner’s arguments begin to undermine their overvalued ideas, crush their long-held stereotypes of reasoning, or forces them to accept a conclusion they had subconsciously rejected before. Such a stimulus unleashes upon the parter a torrent of pseudo-logical, largely paramoralistic [unintentionally fallacious logic], often insulting utterances which always contain some degree of suggestion.
Utterances like these inspire aversion among cultivated and logical people who then tend to avoid the paranoid types. However, the power of the paranoid lies in the fact that they easily enslave less critical minds, e.g. people with other kinds of psychological deficiencies, who have been victims of the egotistical influence of individuals with character disorders, and, in particular, a large segment of young people. [p. 76]
In my lifetime alone, I have witnessed this very same “atrophy” of critical faculties with respect to pathological individuals in our election process. From Bill Clinton lying under oath about an affair then removing important bank regulations, George W. Bush starting a war in Iraq based on utter fabrications, to Barack Obama receiving a Nobel Prize while residing over the largest attack against journalism in American history and drone striking countries, we now see our corporate media worship these men. We then ended up with Donald Trump, whose leadership style excelled at generating large amounts of hysteria within the media and populace. Unfortunately, the media propaganda is powerful in part because people believe they are too smart to fall for propaganda. This combined with subconscious pathological processes leads us inevitably down a dark path into Pathocracy. Let us begin getting into the technical details of Lobaczewski’s analysis of these pathological processes:
Information Selection and Substitution: When speaking about subconscious thought, we must remember that unconscious psychological processes outstrip conscious reasoning both in time and scope, which makes many psychological phenomena possible, including those generally described as conversive. This means that these mental processes occur quickly enough for us to not even realize they’re happening.
Blocking out conclusions: if the inferential process was proper in principle and has almost arrived at a conclusion and final comprehension within the act of internal projection, but becomes stymied by a preceding directive from the subconscious, which considers it inexpedient or disturbing. A conclusion thus rejected remains in our subconscious and in a more unconscious way causes the next blocking and selection of this kind. This can be extremely harmful, progressively enslaving a person to his own subconscious, and is often accompanied by a feeling of tension and bitterness. Example: I didn’t leave the door open because I don’t make mistakes like that.
Selection of Premises: Whenever the feedback goes deeper into the resulting reasoning and from its database thus deletes and represses into the subconscious just that piece of information which was responsible for the arrival of the uncomfortable conclusion. Our subconscious then permits further logical reasoning, except that the outcome will be erroneous in direct proportion to the actual significance of repressed data. An ever greater number of such repressed information is collected into our subconscious memory. Finally, a kind of habit seems to take over: similar material is treated the same way even if reasoning would have reached an outcome quite advantageous to the person.
Substitution of Premises: Once uncomfortable data has been eliminated, a more complex process can occur. The eliminated premises are then replaced by our associative abilities with ideas that lead to more comfortable conclusions, thus removing the need for self-critical thought. Such substitutions are often effected collectively, in certain groups of people, through the use of verbal communication.
Before I fully understood the complexity of this issue, I lost a great amount of respect I had for many of my family and friends. They simply are unable to comprehend that they are being lied to. The information is simply ignored because they are unable to compute this new reality against what they believed was a fair and just world. In many respects, it isn’t their fault. They are operating under a natural world view in which all people out there are exactly like them: normal. One of the most limiting factors of psychology is that it is one of the few scientific studies that exist wherein the subject and observer are of the same species. It can be easy to assume that each person you meet thinks similarly to you because your only frame of reference for how a person thinks is your own. The first real difficulty is how one’s world view is formed. One’s world view is generally built of our instincts and our own environment conditioning us as we mature, and unfortunately it will never be an entirely accurate perception of reality if we do not control our emotions and thought processes as explained in my previous lessons. Therefore, while no person can ever be capable of being completely objective or genuinely true to reality, we can have what is considered an ethically healthy range of perspective.
Let us briefly define what is considered a healthy state of mind, so we can more expertly contrast it with a pathological state. We have to admit to ourselves as a society that all people are not equal: some may be driven deeply by instinct, while others can easily relinquish control to their logical faculties. There is a wide divergence among individuals for the capacity of mental acts such as abstract thought and introspection. General intelligence is distributed over a vast range within the species; our ability to empathize with others exists in a large differentiated range as well. For a “normal” person, their reasoning faculties develop and evolve as they grow older. We grow and reach higher levels of understanding, of ourselves, others and the systems we live in. We make mistakes, suffer emotionally for them and hopefully change our behaviors. While a normal person can still be driven by the primitive drives (sex, food, power) they can often find themselves in conflict with higher ideals. Eventually, a person with a healthy mind becomes capable of recognizing themselves in a subject-object relationship. They become capable of being self-critical, causing plenty of internal conflict as well as self-corrective mindsets. Those that are pathologically minded tend to demonstrate no such internal conflicts, and no ability to recognize their actions, behaviors or thoughts as something to be observed rather than experienced.
We need to begin isolating what constitutes a “pathologically” minded person. It is a long list, and I implore my readers to obtain a copy of Political Ponerology by Andrew Lobaczewski for an even more in-depth look at this issue. I will do my best to present some examples.
If there is damage to the brain, in limited ways, the neighboring healthy tissue attempts to take over the function of the damaged tissue. However, this is an imperfect recovery, and the capacity of the damaged tissue never fully recovers and thus there are deficits in brain function that inevitable become worse over time. The undamaged brain tissue retains our species’ natural psychological properties, however the damaged regions cause wildly different deviations in drive and inhibition. Certain types of damage (particularly damage to the frontal areas of the cerebral cortex) become evident by the negative effects that occur to the individual’s character and decision-making. Our author calls these deformations and disorders of character: characteropathies. [p.73]
“Characteropathies reveal a certain similar quality, if the clinical picture is not dimmed by the coexistence of other mental anomalies (usually inherited), which sometimes occur in practice. Undamaged brain tissue retains our species’ natural psychological properties. This is particularly evident in instinctive and affective responses, which are natural, albeit often insufficiently controlled. The experience of people with such anomalies grows in the medium of the normal human world to which they belong by nature. Thus their different way of thinking, their emotional violence, and their egotism find relatively easy entry into the other people’s minds and are perceived within the categories of the everyday world. Such behavior on the part of persons with such character disorders traumatize the minds and feelings of normal people, gradually diminishing the ability of the normal person to use their common sense. In spite of resistance, victims of the characteropath become used to rigid habits of pathological thinking and experiencing. If the victims are young people, the result is that the personality suffers abnormal development leading to its malformation. Characteropaths and their victims thus represent pathological, ponerogenic factors which, by their covert activity, easily engender new phases in the eternal genesis of evil, opening the door to a later activation of other factors which thereupon take over the main role.” [p. 73-74]
To demonstrate the potential of a characteropath having a pathological effect on normal people, our author offers up the German Kaiser, Wilhelm II. Subjected to brain trauma at birth, Wilhelm II had difficulties learning grammar, geometry, and drawing, which “constitute the typical triad of academic difficulties caused by minor brain lesions.” [p. 74] He would eventually grow to have infantile ways of thinking and insufficient control over his emotions compounded with paranoid thinking. He would remove from power anyone that was critical of him, replacing them with less intelligent, more subservient, and potentially more pathological persons. Through Emperor Wilhelm II, the people of Germany were constantly inundated with characteropathic material that progressively deprived their ability to use their common sense. The constant barrage of paranoid, pathological propaganda as well as an “unrealistic way of thinking wherein slogans take on the power of arguments and real data are subjected to subconscious selection” [p.74] combined to create a wave of hysteria that progressively grew over three generations. The result? A Fuhrer that did not even need to hide his psychopathic, unrealistic, almost cartoonish ambitions of race superiority, genocide and world domination was raised to power and supported by the people of Germany. Many people were completely unable to recognize reality against the propaganda that was tirelessly pushed for decades. This near total blindness to reality is the terrible effect a characteropath can have on others.
I feel it is important to demonstrate the destructive effect pathological thinking can have on others in a more familiar setting. Lobaczewski offers up an example from his practice as a psychiatrist:
I was once referred a patient who had been an inmate in a Nazi concentration camp. She came back from that hell in such exceptionally good condition that she was able to marry and bear three children. However, her child rearing methods were so extremely iron-fisted as to be reminiscent of the concentration camp life so stubbornly persevering in former prisoners. The children’s reaction was neurotic protest and aggressiveness against other children. [p. 166]
Here’s a small compilation of another pathological type and their specific traits:
Not attentive to others
Below average IQ
Dull emotive responses
Black and white thinking
Prone to extreme actions (retaliates over minor offenses)
Involved in acts that appear moral, but are actually negative
A typical Schizoidal declaration: “Human nature is so bad that order in society can only be maintained by a strong power created by highly qualified individuals in the name of some higher idea.”
Normal persons naturally perceive the pathological in a manner befitting their own nature, rather than the nature of a pathological person. This flawed perception can lead to the normal individual to have a more difficult time understanding reality, or properly evolving their order of consciousness. Dawbrowski tells us: “subordinating a normal person to psychologically abnormal individuals has severe and deforming effects on his or her personality: it engenders trauma and neurosis.” A child without any brain lesions can inevitably end up displaying schizoidal characteristics if raised under the harsh rule of a characteropath.
When a truly normal person encounters someone with pathological behavior, their natural tendencies (i.e. our life experiences and learned knowledge) tend to moralize their behavior for us. “This person is doing something bad, therefore they must have had bad experiences in life to make them behave this way.” People tend to fail to differentiate between moral and biological evil, particularly young people because of their lower orders of consciousness dependent on their “natural world view.” It is extraordinarily important to realize that these “psychological deviants” act with such aggression, bewilderment and disdain because they simply cannot comprehend the healthier way of thinking most normal people have. In the context of the pandemic, it is literally outside of their area of comprehension that people would willingly give up gainful employment, recreational privileges and much more because they would never be able to. This is the folly of their character; they believe their perspective is not only valid but it is exclusively the only valid viewpoint and anything that denies this confuses and angers them. We can attribute this failure to understand to the latent inability to conceptualize deeply.
Pathocracy In Action
According to Lobaczewski, only a minority of any given population thinks in pathological ways. These are the psychopaths, characteropaths, schizoidals and other mentally abnormal individuals. Such a small percentage of the population effects massively the rest, because they are different and many are aware of it. These people tend to hide behind proper ideologies until they fully corrupt them. Any attempts to reveal them creates extreme animosity. Take for instance the Democrat party in the USA: at one point they represented freedom of speech, freedom of choice, equality, and bodily autonomy. Now, in actions, they have become completely deceitful, racist, violent, authoritarians that have lost all of their nuance of discussion and these ideals have pathologically infected many that were on the Democrat side. Even organizations like the ACLU have been corrupted with extreme bias towards specific social movements. Those that are a part of these organizations that have been pathologically affected believe that they still champion the high ideals of the past, when in reality their organizations have been hijacked for other purposes, utilizing the original ideologies to mask their intent. “Cancel culture” is not a new concept in history, it occurs when pathological entities begin to control discourse against anyone who would be critical of their regime.
“For them you are their worst enemy. You are hurting them very painfully. For a psychopath, revealing his real condition, tearing down his Cleckley mask, brings the end of his self-admiration. You are threatening them with destruction of their secret world, and bring to null their dreams of ruling and introducing [a social system where they can rule and be served]. When his real condition is publicly revealed, a psychopath feels like a wounded animal.” [p. 130 footnote 101]
“Cancel culture” serves another pathological purpose: an ideological purge of dissidents from positions of power. One must remember, under a totalitarian Pathocracy, anything which threatens pathocratic rule becomes deeply immoral.[p. 140] At the launch of our War in Iraq, you were labeled non-Patriotic if you were against it: “You are with us, or you are against us.” Every well known dictator purged their ranks of dissidents and replaced them with less competent and mentally healthy but more ideologically or psychologically amenable individuals. The Pathocracy believes it can impose its own artificial morals on normal society through force, and for a time they are successful. We see this now with the severe emphasis on “identity relations” with zero nuance being pushed in private places of employment and public schools. We also see medical professionals that witness severe vaccine related adverse events being forced to take the inoculations or resign from their posts, despite working through the entirety of the pandemic. Lobaczewski uses the term negative selection.
If the many managerial positions are assumed by individuals deprived of sufficient abilities to feel and understand the majority of other people, and who also exhibit deficiencies in technical imagination and practical skills – (faculties indispensable for governing economic and political matters) – this then results in an exceptionally serious crisis in all areas, both within the country in question and with regard to international relations. Within, the situation becomes unbearable even for those citizens who were able to feather their nest into a relatively comfortable modus vivendi. Outside, other societies start to feel the pathological quality of the phenomenon quite distinctly. Such a state of affairs cannot last long. One must then be prepared for ever more rapid changes, and also behave with great circumspection.
Pathocracy is a disease of great social movements followed by entire societies, nations and empires. In the course of human history, it has affected social, political, and religious movements, as well as the accompanying ideologies, characteristic for the time and ethnological conditions, and turned them into caricatures of themselves. This occurs as a result of the activities of similar etiological factors in this phenomenon, namely the participation of pathological agents in a pathodynamically similar process. That explains why all the pathocracies of the world are and have been so similar in their essential properties. Contemporaneous ones easily find a common language, even if the ideologies nourishing them and protecting their pathological contents from exposure differ widely. [p. 136]
A simple method of recognizing a purge is the lack of debate. These are highly divisive ideas and they’re assured to be fiercely debated, but a Pathocracy cannot openly debate. Instead, they must censor and silence. We now see this lack of debate concerning both mask and “vaccine” mandates. In my hometown, New York City, a large percentage of the population already had acquired immunity to COVID-19 by July of 2020 (myself included). Initially, there was disingenuous grumbling from our bureaucrats about not knowing how long someone is immune from after infection. Perhaps they didn’t bother to check their own data stating that patients recovered from SARS-CoV-1 were still immune for several years post infection. Sure, there was some push about the “novelty” of SARS-CoV-2, but making decisions based on our current knowledge is the best we can do with science. Additionally, we have known that masks don’t have any significant effect on the spread of airborne illnesses for a very long time, and we have substantial evidence for this conclusion. Instead of open discussion, however, this pandemic became one of slogans and the Pathocracy’s favorite tools, reversive blockades.
Reversive Blockade: Emphatically insisting upon something which is the opposite of the truth blocks the average person’s mind from perceiving the truth. This type of thought process and behavior are rarely seen in normal persons. Using their healthy “common sense,” the normal person begins to search for meaning between the truth and the falsehood, inevitably leading to erroneous conclusions. People that think like this do not realize that deviating their minds from the truth is the intent of being subjected to these methods.
Here are some recent examples of reversive blockades:
COVID-19 cannot be treated like other viruses.
This was one of the biggest, most deadly mistakes of the pandemic. We now know for a fact that anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 was sent home with minimal out-patient treatment recommendation. They were told to come back basically once they could no longer breathe. I’ve seen approximations that place 500,000 COVID-19 deaths as preventable if they had been treated early. This is an atrocity of medicine.
Hydroxychloroquine was proven effective against SARS-CoV-1 and not dangerous enough to be of risk to try on patients of a “novel” SARS virus. Instead, HCQ was vilified as a dangerous drug unsuited to help anyone.
Ivermectin was also dragged through the mud as a “dangerous horse de-wormer” despite it being safely used on hundreds of millions of people successfully for other ailments for decades. The evidence now is overwhelming that early treatment with ivermectin (in conjunction with other supplements) is highly effective at reducing hospitalizations and deaths in COVID-19 patients.
COVID-19 is a major threat to the entire population
We knew early on that those that were dying of COVID-19 already had multiple co-morbidities. These were already high risk groups, such as the elderly and the chronically ill. With the data we have, we know that the percentage chance of being hospitalized by early strains of COVID-19 was between 1% and 5%. Instead, corporate media had everyone believing it was a death sentence.
We should vaccinate people that have recovered from COVID-19 anyway for “super immunity.” Vaccines provide better immunity than acquired immunity.
Nonsense. We have almost never recommended vaccinating people against a virus they’ve had before. We know concerning COVID-19 that people that have previously acquired immunity have an increased risk of adverse events from these vaccines.
How anyone could assume that a vaccine that only targets one of the multiple proteins in a virus can somehow confer better protection than actually fighting off the virus is astounding to me. We know that naturally acquired immunity is more robust and long lasting than vaccination.
The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
Another nonsensical conclusion that doesn’t pass a basic test of logic. How can you know something is safe or effective without any long term studies? Approximately 150,000 Americans have died as a direct result of COVID-19 vaccination. Not to mention those that are permanently damaged from their inoculations, who are now cruelly being censored and dismissed on social media.
The American database for vaccine adverse events is public for anyone to observe. However, due to the voluntary nature of reporting, it is drastically under counted. https://openvaers.com/
Thalidomide would like to have a word with you as well. Thought to be safe for nausea in pregnant women, it directly resulted in countless birth defects because they didn’t bother to do any long term studies.
We can trust companies like Pfizer despite their long criminal history in bribing doctors and lying to regulatory bodies about the dangers of their products.
What did Pfizer pay record breaking fines (2.3 Billion USD) for? Undermining regulatory rules, bribery and other very untrustworthy actions.
The current set of mRNA COVID-19 inoculations are neutralizing/sterilizing vaccines, meaning they prevent infection and spread.
This is an example of pathological hijacking of a previously trusted concept. Most people receive their vaccines throughout childhood, and trust the idea of a “vaccine” because they don’t end up with measles, mumps or polio. Instead, the definition of “vaccine” and “vaccination” had to be changed to fit these new inoculations. These new shots were sold as a vaccine to the public despite not ever demonstrating that they created the necessary protection against COVID.
We now know that getting vaccinated against COVID-19 increases your chance of infection.
Even the CEO of Pfizer says that the initial two-dose regiment offers little to no protection now. Yet, we continue to push mandates.
This served as the basis for the concept of the current medical segregation campaign with vaccine passports. The reality is that vaccinated or not, you can get infected with COVID. There is no health related purpose to the vaccine passports other than to create a division and to “reward” those that comply with unethical rules.
COVID-19 is just a cold!
This one actually comes from people I imagine instinctively understand there is something pathological about the media reportage, but are unable to plant their feet firmly on the truth. Instead, they swing the complete opposite way without any evidence to back up their belief.
COVID-19, if left untreated in susceptible people, can end up being an extraordinarily devastating disease. The misconception of it being a cold comes from the complete lack of easily accessible real information on it. COVID-19 is an endothelial disease, it acts on the blood and blood vessels. The lack of oxygen in severe cases is not exclusively from the inability to get air in the lungs, but the stripping away of the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. It can eventually result in sepsis. It’s not “just a cold.”
Thankfully, the Omicron variant appears to be much milder.
Masks can prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 viral particles.
No. A hundred years of data on respiratory viruses and masks demonstrates this as false. Mask wearing even has the potential to be harmful. Anecdotally, I see masked people just cough and sneeze with no effort to elbow or change the trajectory, because they actually believe their masks are stopping viral spread. They’re inadvertently sneezing right into everyone else’s faces while believing they are protecting others.
Mass censorship of “misinformation” is helpful.
Fact-check organizations can be trusted.
Fact-checking is probably one of the more logically offensive aspects of this Pathocracy, especially if you’ve read and actually understood 1984.
The CEO of Reuters is also on the board of Pfizer. Is that not a severe conflict of interest when your news outlet is “fact-checking” the products you’re in charge of producing?
It must be emphasized how mentally damaging it is for a normal person to try and reconcile so many blatant contradictions and lies by organizations they trust with the reality that they see in front of them. I’ve witnessed many vaccinated people get sick with COVID-19, only to begin claiming that it was never promised that it would prevent illness. Their minds literally cannot handle reality against what they were told because it doesn’t occur to them that the people informing them do not have their best interests in mind. They cannot fathom that people in these positions of power would be either so wrong or so deceitful, and the resulting damage to their mental stability is vast. When you are forced to believe that what you see with your own eyes is false, it has a disturbing mental effect that opens you up to pathological suggestion. Attempting to find the “golden mean” between the truth and a falsehood inevitably causes one to make inherently flawed conclusions. The fact that they persist, even double down, in the face of growing contradictory data suggests they’re purposefully trying to “break” the populous.
As demonstrated by the woefully incomplete list above, we have an issue of people in power claiming to know exactly what they’re talking about and emphatically repeating statements and policies they claim are true, but are demonstrably being proven wrong repeatedly. We now can see another obvious in hindsight issue. The worship of “wise men.” Expert culture and fact checking has been prevalent during these past years, leaving the populace unable to question the methods and statements of those in professional positions:
Höchste Mechanism – when a position or practice, purported to be of scientific basis, is elevated to such importance that removing the rights of professionals and citizens to dissent, speak, organize or disagree (among other rights) is justified in order to protect the position or the practice inside society.
I’m reminded of the tragic story of Ignaz Semmelweiss who, in the 1800s, discovered that a large portion of women were dying after childbirth because the doctors weren’t sanitizing their hands. He attempted to teach others that it was absolutely vital to clean their hands before delivering babies and he was sent to an asylum for the insane, then beaten so brutally he died from the resulting complications. Now, we implore everyone to wash their hands. Being unable to question the monolithic establishment professionals is another commonplace mechanism in the Pathocracy. They were the priests that spoke to the Gods. They were the literate ones that could read the oracle bones or the histories past down. They whispered in the ears of Emperors and Kings in order to maintain their own power and stature. Remember, anything that threatens the rule of Pathocracy becomes considered “immoral” regardless of how accurate or truthful the criticisms are. Make no mistake, this is a purposeful weaponization of existing academic circles, social movements and political organizations. They utilize several methods in order to win power over these entities and wield them as personal shields and not for the purposes that espouse. Let us go over the methods they utilize to gain entry into existing power structures:
Spellbinders: The role of a spellbinder is that of a contagion. Spellbinders are characterized by pathological egotism. Such a person is forced by some internal causes to make an early choice between two possibilities: the first is forcing others people to think and experience things in a manner similar to his own; the second is a feeling of being lonely and different-- a pathological misfit in social life.
Triumphant repression of self-critical or unpleasant concepts from the field of consciousness gradually gives rise to the phenomena of conversive thinking, or paralogistics, paramoralisms and the use of reversion blockades. They stream so profusely from the mind and mouth of the spellbinder that they flood the average person’s mind. Everything becomes subordinated to the spellbinder’s over-compensatory conviction that they are exceptional, sometimes even messianic [“I represent science.”]. An ideology emerges from this conviction, true in part, whose value is supposedly superior. However, if we analyze the exact functions of such an ideology in the spellbinder’s personality, we perceive that it is nothing other than a means of self-charming, useful for repressing those tormenting self critical associations into the subconscious. The ideology’s instrumental role in influencing other people also serves the spellbinder’s needs.
The spellbinder places on a high moral plane anyone who has succumbed to his influence and incorporated the experiential method he imposes. He showers such people with attention and property, if possible. Critics are met with “moral” outrage. It can even be proclaimed that the compliant minority is in fact the moral majority, since it professes the best ideology and honors a leader whose qualities are above average.
Such activity is always necessarily characterized by the inability to foresee its final results, something obvious from a psychological point of view because is substratum contains pathological phenomena and both spellbinding and self-charming make it impossible to perceive reality accurately enough to foresee results logically. However, spellbinders nurture great optimism and harbor visions of future triumphs similar to those they enjoyed over their own crippled souls. It is also possible for optimism to be a pathological symptom.
In a healthy society, the activities of spellbinders meet with criticism effective enough to stifle them quickly. However, when they are preceded by conditions operating destructively upon common sense and social order; such as social injustice, cultural backwardness, or intellectually limited rulers sometimes manifesting pathological traits, spellbinders’ activities have led entire societies into large-scale human tragedy.

The best defense is knowing what sort of offense you’re up against. We’ve now familiarized ourselves with “reversive blockades.” It is absolutely vital we understand the extended toolbox of the psychopath in order to prevent them from taking over the foundations of our society:
Using terms but giving them opposing or twisted meanings.
Examples: peacefulness = appeasement; freedom = license; initiative = arbitrariness; traditional = backward; rally = mob; efficiency = small-mindedness; fact check = protected opinion
The words “peacefulness” and “appeasement” denote the same thing: a striving to establish peace, but have entirely different connotations which indicate the speaker’s attitude toward this striving toward peace.
A linguistic device of persuasion. It is an argument or line of reasoning which is pitched to appear driven by ethical concerns, yet under scrutiny is revealed to be driven by self-interest or adherence to a system of rules disregarding conscience. Example: “My opponents are Judases bribed for thirty pieces of silver.” “We are invading this country in order to free them.” “These oppressive measures are for your health.” “We had to destroy the village to save it.”
The attitude, subconsciously conditioned as a rule, to which we attribute excessive value to our instinctive reflexes, early acquired imaginings and habits, and individual world view. Excessive egotism hampers the evolutions of one’s orders of consciousness and personality development. An egotist measures others by his own yardstick, treating his concepts and experiential manner as objective criteria. Example: A person that starts an online newsletter proclaiming to have “the answers” for helping individuals or society with all of their problems. Wink, wink.
While I have listed pathological thinking that could effect the common person, there remains a far more dangerous subset capable of causing gruesome amounts of real harm: the psychopaths. They are masters of the above pathological mindsets, and worse still, masters of understanding and manipulating the perceived weaknesses of normal people. Schizoidia is a form of paranoid psychopathy, however we will be looking at what is known as essential psychopathy. Researchers tend to underline three particular qualities associated with this type of psychopathy: the absence of guilt for antisocial actions, the inability to love truly, and the tendency to ramble on in a way that deliberately deviates from reality for personal gain. Due to their extreme egotism, the idea of feeling guilty doesn’t even occur to the psychopath, owing heavily to the undue excessive value they give their own morals and standards. Love is an obstacle considered to be simply a fairy tale believed by the “normal people” for sexual conquest. The incentives of the psychopath appear to not only consist of wanting to live their lives in instinctive pleasure seeking and antisocial behaviors, but also derive pleasure from making others suffer. They often tend to seek out positions of power to enact their brutal desires against others. They recognize from a young age that they are different than most other people: they lack the emphatic response the average person has and the psychopath realizes that they can use that as a weapon. Normal people are at a disadvantage against the psychopath because the normal person has no comprehension as to what it means to live without a conscience or empathy, while the psychopath has no qualms pretending to care and empathize through paramoralisms and conversive thinking. All the while looking and sounding like a normal person would.
We have to remember that for these psychologically deviant groups, it becomes a biological imperative to maintain a system that insulates them from the consequences of their incompetence and wrongdoing: “If the laws of normal man were to be reinstated, they and theirs could be subjected to judgment, including a moralizing interpretation of their psychological deviations; they would be threatened by a loss of freedom and life, not merely a loss of position and privilege. Since they are incapable of this kind of sacrifice, the survival of a system which is the best for them becomes a moral imperative. Such a threat must be battled by means of any and all psychological and political cunning implemented with a lack of scruples with regard to those other ‘inferior-quality’ people that can be shocking in its depravity.” [p. 141]
I’ve seen many ask questions along the lines of: “why would the people in power want to harm their most obedient constituents with mandatory vaccines?” This question demonstrates a person with a normal way of thinking trying to understand someone that is psychologically deviant. The Pathocrat simply doesn’t care. They do not consider these constituents to be equal to them in any manner. The means justify the ends of maintaining their position of power. “After all, pathocrats give short shrift to blood and suffering of people they consider to be not quite conspecific [of the same species]. Kings may have suffered due to the death of their knights, but pathocrats never do: ‘We have a lot of people here.’” [p.142] We must thus avoid any sort of “moralizing interpretation” when in reference to the behaviors of Pathocrats because their internal logic is so alien to a normal persons.
Lobaczewski on moralizing:
“The natural world view is also characterized by a similar, emotional, tendency to endow our opinions with moral judgment, often so negative as to represent societal customs. We easily extrapolate this method of comprehension onto manifestations of improper human behavior, which are, in fact, caused by minor psychological deficiencies. When another individual behaves in a way that we deem to be “bad”, we tend to make a judgment of negative intent rather than seeking to understand the psychological conditions that might be driving them, and convincing them that they are, in fact, behaving very properly. Thus, any moralizing interpretation of minor psychopathological phenomena is erroneous and merely leads to an exceptional number of unfortunate consequences...” [p. 38]
We must also avoid depending on law as a compass for right and wrong. “Law has become the measure of right within the countries of normal human systems. We often forget how imperfect a creation of human minds it really is, how dependent it is on formulations based upon data which legislators can understand. In legal theory, we accept its regulatory nature as a given and consequently agree that in certain cases its activities may not be quite concurrent with human reality. Understood thus, the law furnishes insufficient support for counteracting a phenomenon whose character lies outside of the possibilities of the legislators’ imagination. Quite the contrary: pathocracy knows how to take advantage of the weaknesses of such legalistic manner of thinking.” [p. 144] Remember, it was illegal to give shelter to Jews during the late stages of the Nazi regime and perfectly legal to doom them to suffering in labor camps. To quote Thomas Sowell: “It doesn’t matter what rights you have under the Constitution, if the government can punish you for exercising those rights. And it doesn’t matter what limits the Constitution puts on government officials’ power if they can exceed those limits without any adverse consequences.”
The Ethical Mind
I would like to lightly touch upon my interpretation of “mass formation psychosis.” Admittedly, I have not gone in-depth with this concept, as I’ve only been alerted to it during the writing of this article. Mass formation psychosis could be an interpretation of our conscious evolution as human beings. I believe this phenomena occurs due to the manipulation of people’s ethical development. Put plainly, almost all of us have gone through phases that make us susceptible to “mass psychosis” because we are built to equate the feelings of the groups we associate with as our own. While many of us mentally evolve beyond this phase, a section of the population does not. I had written two articles about Robert Kegan’s theory of the evolution of consciousness, and I feel that the Third Order of consciousness represents a great deal of what we are seeing now. My quick, non-expert summary of these Orders of Consciousness:
1. Infancy – the most basic operational needs
2. Self-Centered - Young childhood – Self-Interest - one’s identity is intrinsically linked with one’s desires. “I want” is a deeply ingrained feeling in a child and it defines their identity.
3. Communal – Adolescence/Young Adulthood - is when that excess “selfishness” begins to evolve into excessive “selflessness.” What was once self now bleeds and blends with the desires of others; one begins to involuntarily subsume the emotions, experiences and values of others without clearly dividing where one’s individuality ends and others’ begin. Think on the clichés of being a teenager; the desire to fit in is strong in many people. This way of thinking is inadequate for an adult in our modern society. According to Kegan, approximately a third of the adult population is stuck in this mode of thinking.
4. Systemic - The fourth order is a shifting of the subject-object paradigm; our desires and instincts are no longer the subject of our experiences but rather they become objects we can manually maneuver around at will. In my opinion, this is what truly separates us from the rest of the animals on Earth, our ability to choose against our instincts.
The matter of concern here is that “excessively selfless” order of thinking. When you have a large group of people whose identities are so deeply linked with what others think of them, you have the potential for a large group that will do whatever they’re told if they’re told in the right way. People like Edward Bernays, one of the most influential originators of the concept of public relations, knew and understood this concept perhaps too well. He managed to get new generations of women to become cigarette smokers by paying women to smoke publicly and to portray smoking as an empowering social movement for women. We see this very same type of manipulation being used against the populace now with the pandemic response. For these people, duty to others lacks complexity and nuance. To demand someone who already acquired immunity to COVID-19 to also get the vaccines only makes sense to someone who thinks in a communally minded way. They’ve been convinced that anyone going against these “societal demands” are selfish and unable to empathize with others. Remember how our frame of reference of other people’s minds is our own? Persons whose development is stuck in that adolescent phase simply cannot fathom a higher order of thinking; they cannot separate that the way they feel is not the result of logical processes. Kegan speaks on adult education experts that try to reach adults that still operate in the third order:
“When the adult education experts tell us they want students to ‘understand how to separate what they feel from what they should feel, what they value from what they should value, and what they want from what they should want, they may not be taking seriously enough the possibility that when the third order dominates our meaning-making, what we should feel is what we do feel, what we should value is what we do value, and what we should want is what we do want. Their goal therefore may not be a matter of getting students merely to identify and value a distinction between two parts that already exist, but a matter of fostering a qualitative evolution of mind that actually creates the distinction.” [In Over Our Heads, p. 275]
These are the fad chasers, the momentary activists, and the attention seekers. These are the people desperate to “fit in” and thus look externally for how to behave for validation. It would be easy to judge such people, but the reality of our conscious development dictates that most of us have felt the exact same way before. Some unfortunate people have not yet grown out of that phase of their lives, and some never do. The dictates of society are far more important to these underdeveloped individuals, so they fail to consider whether or not said dictates are actually beneficial or not. They behave in hostility towards those that aren’t trapped in this “communal” mindset because they’re enslaved to a group mentality.
You must consider that this is how our politicians believe they have to operate. Most politicians base their decisions on what make them look and sound good. We deride them for being dishonest for public relations purposes without fully comprehending what living in this sterilized fantasy world does to them. Many of these politicians are also victims in a self-perpetuating pathological world, and they’ve been trained to the bone to never speak their own minds about anything. Imagine what that does to a person’s conscious: the corruption becomes more profound and reality stretches further away from their perception. We love to place the blame solely at their feet, however, it is the public that shares responsibility. We do not forgive people for being open about opinions we disagree with; we publicly shame them for genuine human error; we expect perfection from people that are just as flawed and human as we are. Our politicians don’t tend to wield expertise over any subject other than public relations. They then become dependent on what advisers and lobbyists say will elevate them in the political process because in their mind what is right politically is the same as what is ethically right.
You might be wondering, “why after this entire article about corruption would I take a forgiving approach to these politicians?” The answer is simple: their downfall will only set the stage from something far worse. Due to brain lesions, Wilhelm II was a terrible leader and caused massive psychological damage to his citizens and the surrounding countries. Adolf Hitler’s regime was far worse because his entourage purposefully took advantage of the hysterical and psychologically susceptible population to forward their truly psychopathic ideas. We are inadvertently opening ourselves up to potentially worse tragedies if we do not learn to forgive our politicians and demand they make the ethically right decisions, and not just the financially and politically expedient choices. It is deeply important to recognize that the Pathocracy transcends political parties. If the current party in power is replaced, the same corrupt mechanisms are capable of grabbing hold of the new party if we do not recognize how Pathocracy works.
Our reality dictates that there will always be a scarcity of in-demand resources on this planet. Power is no different. We must begin accepting that this Pathocracy has control over vast power and resources, simply based on observing the massive disinformation campaign worldwide and the ridiculous policies that have no positive effect on public health. They understand that those that do not have power covet it, and so they wish to crush any potential threats to their structures. They simply do not have incentive to yield this power whereas they perceive great incentive to do whatever it takes to maintain it. However, their inability to foresee the outcome of their current actions will inevitably be their downfall. I would claim that there is indeed a place in a healthy society for those of the Pathocracy, and we will be unable to find it until we accept each other. I could be totally wrong about this subject and these over 9,000 words could be written in vain, but I cannot idly stand by with information that could prove to be the spark that enables the Human species to grow and defend itself in ways that it hasn’t before. I implore you to begin investigating this route of thought on your own, come to your own conclusions, and possibly hit me back with corrections and criticisms. We can no longer live in a world where we isolate ourselves and our ideas. There can be no enlightenment without opening your mind to others, regardless of how much they make you uncomfortable. Above all else, mental resilience is how we will evolve as individuals and as a species.
There are multiple types of psychological problems that can have a profound effect on society.
Characteropaths: From brain lesions or drug induced.
Warped, unhealthy ways of thinking.
Have a deeply disturbing effect on normal people.
Young people are particularly susceptible to being effected by characteropathic material.
Example: Kaiser Wilhelm II spread paranoid propaganda in the German population for years, mentally injured them to the point that opened the way for the rise of Adolf Hitler.
No guilt for anti-social acts, no ability to genuinely love, generally incompetent at skilled labor or difficult intellectual tasks.
They are aware of their differences from regular people and have no issue manipulating people.
They abhor healthy societies because a healthy society is capable of preventing the psychopath from exerting their wills on others.
Pathological thought processes can be more infectious than COVID itself. Recognizing these processes in yourself and others is vital to preventing the spread of them. No one is immune to them.
Reversive Blockade: Emphatically insisting upon something which is the opposite of the truth blocks the average person’s mind from perceiving the truth. A healthy mind attempts to reconcile the lie with perceived reality. This process always results in erroneous conclusions.
Paramoralism: A linguistic device of persuasion. These generally evoke a higher ideal or ethical concerns yet are always revealed to be driven by self-interest. Example: We must sacrifice the education of our children by locking down in order to protect the elderly.
Conversive Thinking: Using words but giving them twisted or even opposing meanings. Examples: domestic terrorist = concerned parent; freedom = license; violent riots = peaceful protest; fact-check = protected opinion.
Mass formation psychosis could possibly be synonymous with the active manipulation of people that are in the “communal” stage of their conscious evolution.
Teenagers are particularly susceptible to the above pathological processes because they inherently put weight on external ideals. What their “clique” thinks of them is of the utmost importance.
At least 33% of the adult population still think like teenagers.
Recognize that these individuals were already like this before the pandemic, the pandemic just weaponized them.
Thank you for reading. This is what I consider to only be scratching the surface of a profound problem we are facing as a society. As I have stated, I’m no “expert” on these topics therefore I’m more than willing to engage criticism and debate on certain points. I just hope that our society is capable of pulling back from one-sided argumentation and towards true dialog.
