Statistically, your chances of dying from a bee sting or a lightning strike are much greater than your chances of dying in a terrorist attack in America.

 

The anthrax attack and the Fort Hood shooting had nothing to do with foreign terrorists.   The shoe bomber and the underwear bomber were not attacks in the US.   I'll give you the Times Square bombing, even though it was such an utterly incompetent failure that it's difficult to believe that it was actually meant to succeed.   I mean, really, what kind of moron thinks that a large firecracker will blow up a propane tank?   If they actually had meant to kill people it would have been ten times easier and almost foolproof to just fill a Ryder truck with drums of gasoline, stop it in one of the tunnels at rush hour, and torch it.  

The anthrax attacks, in particular, were traced to U.S. scientists at Fort Detrick, MD who were viciously anti-Muslim.   These attacks had absolutely nothing to do with Al Qaida, and everything to do with causing enough hysteria to enable the administration's plans to repeal the Bill of Rights piecemeal without anyone daring to protest.   Blaming these attacks on Muslim terrorists is simply the worst kind of disinformation, and this is no longer even controversial.

The Trick of the Sociopath's Trade:   Make Us Believe that Evil Comes from Others

   The influence of psychopaths/sociopaths and other deviants isn't just one of many influences working on society, but, under the appropriate circumstances, can be the primary influence that shapes the way we live, what we think, and how we judge what is going on around us.   When you understand the true nature of that influence, i.e. that it is conscienceless, emotionless, selfish, cold and calculating, and devoid of any moral or ethical standards, you are horrified.   But at the same time everything suddenly begins to makes sense.   Our society is ever more soulless because the people who lead it and who set the example are soulless -- they literally have no conscience.   And when you come to understand that the reins of political and economic power are in the hands of people who have no conscience, who have no capacity for empathy, it opens up a completely new way of looking at what we call "evil.".   Evil is no longer, then, only a moral issue;   it can now be analyzed and understood scientifically.

When psychopaths are the policy makers in government and the CEOs of big business, the way they think and reason -- their 'morality' -- gradually becomes the common culture and 'morality' of the population over which they preside.   When this happens, the mind of the population is infected in the way a pathogen infects a physical body.   The only way to protect ourselves against this pathological thinking is to inoculate ourselves against it, and that is done by learning as much as possible about the nature of psychopathy and its culturally induced influence on us.   Essentially, this particular 'disease' thrives especially well in an environment where its very existence is denied or ignored, and where this denial is planned and deliberate.

Psychopathy and its second cousin, narcissism, is an adaptive life strategy that has become a road to success in American society, and thus has spread quickly throughout our population.   What is more, as a consequence of a society that is adaptive for psychopathy, many individuals who are NOT genetic psychopaths have similarly adapted, becoming "effective" psychopaths, or "secondary sociopaths."   In other words, in a world of psychopaths, those who are not genetic psychopaths, are induced to behave like psychopaths simply to "survive" or prosper.   When the rules are set up to make a society "adaptive" to psychopathy, it makes psychopaths of everyone.
