Estimates are that approximately 6% of the people in the world have no conscience. (Also see: Political Ponerology.)
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.You can also click on the little anti-sociopath logo top right and read the comments there. The sociopaths find the whole thing hysterically funny, as of course they would. Another excellent blogger on this topic: The Path Whisperer.
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.
So what is it really like for them? An admitted psychopath describes his perspective.
Vaknin: "I like to present a facade of the self-effacing, modest person. It gives people the impression that, underneath it all, I'm human."Six percent translates to approximately one in seventeen
Walker: "But you are human, aren't you?"
Vaknin: "I firmly believe that you want to believe that, yes. ... [The psychopath] regards people as instruments of gratification and as disposable things to be used. ...
The vast majority of psychopaths, like an iceberg, are underwater, and like an iceberg, they are inert. They do nothing. They're just there.
They torment their spouse by being unempathic, but they don't beat her or kill her.
They bully coworkers, but they don't burn the office.
They are not dramatic. They are pernicious. Most psychopaths are subtle.
They are more like poison than a knife, and they are more like slow-working poison than cyanide."
After subjecting Walker to a series of degrading insults (a regular occurrence during filming), and with Walker still visibly in shock, Vaknin coolly, and with disturbingly sadistic insight, described the process to him:
"Your body was flooded instantly with adrenalin and its relatives like norepinephrine ... Now when these moments pervade the bloodstream, your brain reacts. It shuts down certain centers and activates others. This is called the stress reaction, or stress syndrome, actually. Then when the abuse recedes, the adrenalin levels begin to drop. As they drop, the entire system goes into mayhem.
So what bullies usually do, they start and stop, start and stop. That achieves the maximal stress syndrome, and this is the great secret of bullying. Never overdo it. Small doses. The victim will do the rest. - Although you are shaking much less [now] ... I must do something about that."
Social engineering is a euphemistic way of describing how these predators control society -- through an elaborate network of NGOs, think tanks, corporations, media outlets, etc. It's not hidden. It's done openly because it's subtle, pernicious, slow-acting. Drip drip drip, until they created an ocean.
The founders of Tavistock realized that by repeating and alternating stress and reliefs, people became malleable.
Rees, Trist, Tavistock and their associates, used coercive techniques, applying all the same pattern induce psychological stress and physical strong in an individual, then relieve that stress. By dint of repeated alternating stress and reliefs, the "patient" eventually become malleable. The Tavistockiens tried to improve these coercive techniques in using electroshock therapy, hypnosis, and the administration of mind-altering drugs to "reprogram" their victims, or more commonly their washing brain.So did the Tavistock founders know these things instinctively, the way psychopath Vaknin does?
..."One of the main techniques for breaking morale with a" strategy of terror "is precisely to keep people in constant blurring between where they are and when they wish to go. If one adds to this a frequent alternation of harsh disciplinary measures and promises of good treatment, while spreading contradictory news, the "cognitive structure" is so disturbed that the individual becomes incapable of knowing whether a particular plan might conduct toward its goal or away from it. Under these conditions, even individuals with defined objectives and are willing to take risks, will be paralyzed by severe inner conflict about what to do. "  ~ Kurt Lewin, pioneer of group dynamics
Tavistock is huge, and unquestionably prestigious.
Tavistock Institute has developed such power in the U.S. that no one achieves prominence in any field unless he has been trained in behavioral science at Tavistock or one of its subsidiaries.We are so surrounded by social engineering that we don't even see it. We just run along through it, inside it. We live it.
...Today the Tavistock Institute operates a $6 Billion a year network of Foundations in the U.S., all of it funded by U.S. taxpayers' money. Ten major institutions are under its direct control, with 400 subsidiaries, and 3000 other study groups and think tanks which originate many types of programs to increase the control of the World Order over the American people. The Stanford Research Institute, adjoining the Hoover Institution, is a $150 million a year operation with 3300 employees. It carries on program surveillance for Bechtel, Kaiser, and 400 other companies, and extensive intelligence operations for the CIA. It is the largest institution on the West Coast promoting mind control and the behavioral sciences.
John B. Watson (1907a) portrayed the rat's maze performance
as a chain of discrete responses
controlled by kinesthetic feedback
which become increasingly integrated
as training continues.
Think about the way the Gulf disaster has been managed. Hopes repeatedly raised and dashed, hopes for a solution continually kicked another mile down the road.
Think about war with Iran, how often we have it waved in our faces, the threat of this war that might come at any day but which has not arrived yet.
Think about the economy, one day it's better, the next it's worse. The market goes up and down, never-ending, never resolving into stability.
This is our life, this constant cycle of stress and relief. Stability never comes.
That's the point.
The social engineers are detached. They are not *in* the experiment with us, they run the experiment. They view it as if from above, like demi-gods.
Today, the social engineering project operator group dynamics originates from a small circle of "social engineers", which is called the International Network of Social Network Analysis (INSNA, International Network of social network analysis). The INSNA part of the tradition of "social scientists" who preceded him, remain in the service of international finance. Some of its members also belong to organizations like the repulsive Olin Foundation and the Irwin Foundation. And INSNA boasts in its ranks four knights of the royal orders, such as the Order of Orange Nassau, which was headed until 2004 by a former Nazi party member, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands Netherlands, before it does not return to hell.

"Social structure becomes actually visible in an anthill; the movements and contacts one sees are not random but patterned. We should also be able to see structure in the life of an American community if we had a sufficiently remote vantage point, a point from which persons would appear to be small moving dots. . . . We should see that these dots do not randomly approach one another, that some are usually together, some meet often, some never. . . . If one could get far enough away from it human life would become pure pattern." ~ Roger Brown, from INSNA website (www.insna.org)

But they are not gods. And they are not God. They lack creativity.
And life is not a pattern, a fractal, for their amusement.
They work against our freedom because they are parasites. They need to control people and steal because they have a parasitical lifestyle, and they don't want to work for their supper, they just want it for free. So they run the world like a farm, and they fancy themselves the farmers.
It's time for them to pony up and buy the farm.
