Today we protest via occupy movements.   Protesters are a breed of human's being acting like agitating flies upon the sociopathic minds of government and corporations. If they so desired, they could swat us flat into the ground.   And they are working on it.   But, like flies we will keep coming to agitate these psycho or sociopaths.   We are pests on the back of the Machine.

 

Yes, I say sociopathic for they do indeed fit the diagnostic criteria of sociopathic as reflected in the following definition taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy    

 

Psychopathy ( / s ˈ k -' p ə θ i / [1] [2] ) is a personality disorder characterized primarily by a lack of empathy and remorse, shallow emotions, egocentricity, and deception. Psychopaths are highly prone to antisocial behavior and abusive treatment of others, and are disproportionately responsible for violent crime when in a violent emotional state or situation. Though lacking empathy and emotional depth, they often manage to pass themselves off as average individuals by feigning emotions and lying about their past.

 

Next time you watch the news, especially Fox, you may wish to get hold of a psychopathic checklist.   You also should do this with the major banks and industries of our nation (see the movie Corporation) http://www.hellocoolworld.com/store/product.php?productid=17518&cat=262&page=1)

 

In essence, we are being led into a planetary and species death by parental figures (at their own appointing and our allowing) who are mass murderers of people, animals, plants, atmospheres, landscapes and the psyches (souls) of children.   Yet, there is a cautionary tale here, and that entails our tendency to blame them "out there" without looking at our responsibility in the matter.   Indeed, if you point the finger at "them" out there, you have three pointed back at you; "in here".

 

So, what to do?   Dare we try to set up new systems externally?   Or do we make fundamental changes in ourselves, both internally and externally?
