What's Wrong With The Clintons: The Emperor Has No Clothes

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   3 comments

There are so many things that have disappointed me about the human condition in the last 7 years.  But, I have not lost my faith in the noble destiny of mankind.  It is true that the reptilian part of the brain has dominated most of human history.  The Clintons have exposed themselves to that reptilian brain which seems to have dominated them.  And it now includes Hillary's anything to win strategy.

According to the triune brain theory, people upshift and downshift to use different parts of their brain depending upon their situation. When you upshift, you use your neocortex. A safe environment is necessary for upshifting. Consequently, creativity, learning, and thinking happen when you feel safe, secure, and protected. Praise and security promote upshifting.  It represents what is called our better angels.  It is the theme of Obama's strategy of hope.

Conversely, you downshift when your reptilian brain takes over. People become reptilian when they are afraid and concerned with survival. Criticism and fear promote downshifting. A person or an organization can't evolve if it is primarily concerned with survival.  That is why the Clintons have forever shed any pretense of having better angels with their anything to win strategy.  It has also shattered their legacy.  It is truly a Shakespearean tragedy.
