Similarities and Commonalities

There is so much similarity and commonality among people, voters, left, right, social, center, liberal, or not politically interested. Almost everyone has had enough of the establishment, of the selfishness of greed, of the failure of the elite. The degradation of society, spiritual values and decency.

Similarities: Hard work, work longer, without getting anywhere. The gap between rich and poor is widening. unequal opportunities, income inequality, discouragement. Mutual envy. The angry voter does not benefit, while the top benefits extreme. Economics is always under pressure, the middle class is under pressure, changes in the labor market, flexible work, wage developments, job losses. Growing underclass. Difference between rich and poor, (in) equality, freedom. (Un) equal opportunities for all.

While the 1 percent superrich (Elite) of the earth almost have half of worldpower in their hands. While the population has increased poverty and has to pay more taxes. While the super rich, multinationals and banks pay less taxes, if they even want to pay taxes. See Swissleaks, LuxLeaks and recently Panama Papers. While Oxfam says that the wealth of the poorest 50% declined by 41% between 2010 and 2015, despite an increase in the global population of 400m. While in the same period, the wealth of the richest 62 people rose by $ 500 billion ( 350 billion) to $ 1.76 billion. click here

Therefore the understandable anger, but many are guided by instincts, fears and desires. In our massdemocracy, people have the freedom to "BE OR NOT TO BE" given up and let them not lead through mental or moral values. In a climate of "Spiritual emptiness' easily create a religious phenomenon: A false Messiah, People like Wilders, Le Pen, Orban, Erdogan and Trump. A secular religion...

The eternal rulers there have constantly made and will continue to abuse us further into slavery abuses. Life is by all sorts of manipulation become a utility tool in the hands of the growing elite. Divide and conquer by chaos.

Note: Due to high testosterone alpha male behavior, we have been misled from the beginning of time, cheated, oppressed, lied, kept ignorant, manipulated. Because power corrupts, because of repeating success of the individual, is created even more testosterone and therefore causes it as an addictive behavior. In men's aggressiveness and antisocial behavior related to testosterone levels. Success, winning, power, money raised testosterone.

Docility and obedience

As human beings, as individuals we are weak, historically, therefore, herd behavior, more protection, and increased survival. Automatically adapt to the social norm, listen to the higher powers and perform higher powers instruct us. Joining with the rest of the world. If everyone runs somewhere, then there must be something wrong. Self-interest and short-term gain. Do you think otherwise, you decide otherwise, you're different, you have the chance to be eliminated from the group.

Fear of personal responsibility, fear of the unknown, fear of losing control, fear of death and therefore fear of life. They take responsibility for their own behavior or, whether one remains a victim and leave the responsibility for their own lives to authorities, who think only of themselves. Selfish, megalomaniac, narcissistic psychopaths who already exploit centuries the common people in a terrible way.

Obedience and docility, established by experiments: The Milgram experiment was a series of scientific experiments to obey to determine the readiness of what is perceived as legitimate authority, even if it went against their own conscience.

The Stanford prison experiment was a controversial social psychological experiment, which was conducted in 1971 in the basement of Stanford University. Many people find it difficult to bring assertiveness to someone who wants to influence them. Zimbardo's experiment shows that we must always be vigilant against the traps of the influence that we experience daily.

Every human being must be able to develop into what he / she would, could and should be. Use your own judgment. You do not have to follow everything blindly. Take time for yourself and ask the big questions of life.

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. J.W. von Goethe

Build bridges, not walls

98% of the world is angry, all races, colors and creeds are angry, we just have to guide our similar anger by understanding, empathy, fairness, respect, understanding, love and not by fear, anger, frustration and helplessness. Not by division and hatred of others, often minorities, including Mexicans, Refugees, Jews in the past. In Common sence, we must focus on the real causes of this misery, this great injustice to our community, and that is our focus on the elite, establishment, neo liberalism, the capitalist system.
