The Strong Leader Complex

People who desire to be ruled by 'strong leaders' should take heed of the saying:
"Be careful of what you wish for."
The genius fable writer of the classical world, Aesop, most amusingly portrayed the dangers of wishing for a strong leader.

The fable tells a story of how a group of frogs turned to the god-king Zeus to give them a leader. He gave them a log. At first the frogs were in awe but seeing ultimately that the log was lifeless and boring they turned to Zeus again to ask for a more inspiring leader. 

Zeus was annoyed by this new request and decided to give the frogs a hydra, i.e. a multi-headed snake whose heads grow again as they are cut off. The hydra made short shrift of the frogs, killing them all. 

[Those Germans who voted for Hitler in pre-Nazi Germany, disgruntled as they were with the liberal and 'weak' Weimar Republic, had evidently not read or understood Aesop's frogs fable.]

Daily Mail Readers

I have sometimes been perceived as or even accused of having a superiority complex, possibly due to my intellectual nature and the threatening vibe this can project in social company. 

Yet people as intellectually challenged as Daily Mail readers may also have an unconscious but nonetheless malignant superiority complex, looking down as they are wont to do daily on usual-suspect demographics such as people on welfare, immigrants, Muslims, non-heterosexuals and so on. 

As a friend of mine notes on Facebook, rather than empathise with someone undergoing difficulties in their life, i.e. make the effort to put themselves in their shoes, people of a weak not to say mean-spirited nature may come to deny that these difficulties are objective and assert instead that the person is being unreasonable and 'difficult'. 

It is perhaps hard to admit for conventionally-minded conformists that perhaps society is unfair and at times predatory, that people undergo misfortunes and hardship and that these phenomena reflect poorly on the society these conventionalists identify with and hold dear. 

- What? Society could be wrong?

- You bet it can 

As the great political philosopher Thomas Paine once said
"A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right."
And scapegoating discourse and politics are wrongs when they result in harm being caused to others. 

All this to say superiority complexes - which are often born, ironically, of a deeper inferiority complex, a subconscious sense of intellectual or other form of inadequacy - are not the preserve of the intelligent or gifted.

In fact the reverse is often the case as one finds that many ungifted, ignorant people revel in arrogance and self-certainty whereas many gifted, intelligent people fall into self-doubt and excessive humility. 

Addendum - An evidently disabused Daily Mail reader commented on this post saying "it must be nice to disappear up your lazy, superior arse while I work to provide for my family." He's right. It is nice. To be sure, I was the first to insult Daily Mail readers and as I wrote in Puritans as Self-Loathers
"Should you choose to judge others, expect to be judged yourself, whether for your person or the fruits, ripe or rotten, you have brought forth into the world."
I bear this person no ill-will for he is entitled to this opinion and look down on me, as flawed and contradictory as I am as any other. But I do thank him for so eloquently clarifying the hard-done by and resentful mindset of that newspaper's readership.

One Eyed Man and the Minions

"In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king."
This is of course how the obscuranti/illuminati view themselves (see Obscuranti and Light-Concealers). 

The one eye is the eye of the mind, the pineal gland - in other words, genuine mon-ey(e) as opposed to fake, banking credit money (see Money and Mon-eye). 

Dark occultists view the masses as blind sheep who need 'leadership'. 

This is revealed by the soon-to-be-released Minions film. 

This YouTube video points out that the minions are really us, unhappy, listless and despondent creatures if we are denied an evil, cruel leader to guide us. 

The word minion itself means
"A follower or underling of a powerful person, especially a servile or unimportant one."
The production company for the movie is called Illumination. And some of the 'minions' have one eye. Some even have the G of freemasonry printed onto their clothing.

Let it be said however that the statement
"In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king"
need not necessarily have a dark occultic meaning because it could be argued that a philosopher whose third eye chakra is activated will indeed be king in the spiritual kingdom as compared to unenlightened contemporaries undergoing the influence of mind control methodologies, be it money, religion or government: the so-called Unholy Trinity.

Truth Hurts

Unpleasant truths can hurt. 

People react badly to what hurts them.

We can therefore understand why Plato said
"No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth"
and Orwell
"The more a society drifts away from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." 
Truth-telling stand-up comics such as Bill Hicks are, for their part, an embodiment of the famous quote
"If you're going to tell people the truth, make them laugh, or else they'll kill you."

Conspiracy Theorising

So-called conspiracy 'theorising' is a form of truth-seeking. As in science, theories may even become established fact years down the line. 

What is commonly and casually mocked as 'conspiracy theorising' often, in practice, reveals itself to be simply critical thinking based on factual research, undertook in awareness of the fact that those in power do not, as a rule, have our best interests at heart. 

For more elaboration see posts We're All Conspiracy TheoristsEvaluating Conspiratorial Angles and Conspiracy Theorist.

First Condition of Truth-Seeking

First condition of truth-seeking: you cannot evaluate the veracity of a piece of information based on how it makes you feel

To be sure emotions constitute their own form of psychological data which cannot be ignored nor should they be.

However when it comes to bleak realities shared by conspiracy researchers, emotional discomfort may well be a block in listening to the points made, whether they be true, false or patchy. 

Emotional discomfort is probably the main reason why many people choose not to pay attention to so-called conspiracy theories. 

Killing the Host

In destroying the planet, humans are sometimes seen as a cancer destroying its host. Are humans a virus as Agent Smith claimed they were in the movie The Matrix? 

Is that not precisely how the globalist elite view the mass of humanity explaining their widespread use of covert methodologies of culling and depopulation like 'food', 'medicine', man-made diseases, war, economics, weather modification and so forth?

Controlled Through Fear

We are controlled by others essentially through fear. Thus mind control aims to keep people in a polarity of fear, i.e. a state of shut-down consciousness. 

Mitigating & Remedying

In large parts we live in a violent world of fear, division and hate. Remedying or at least mitigating these aspects of reality is what we should be attending to. And one can start by not being afraid, divided or full of hate in oneself.  

Topsy Turvy

The world is topsy turvy because we are ruled by black magicians. Black magic inverts truth - as expressed in natural and psychological laws - for selfish gain.

Money Makes the World Go...

Money makes the world go round. Or does it make the world go wrong?

Introverts in the United States

Many introverts have a rough time 'fitting in', particularly in the people-oriented and competitive 'working world' but I feel especially for thoughtful and sensitive introverts in the United States where extroversion, self-promotion and making money seem to take an almost religious significance.
