As I’ve just said the other day, no one is evil. Okay, evil is as evil does, as Forrest would say ( Tom is a great actor, but it might be time to think about retiring. As Seinfeld said, always leave them at the top. You want to be remembered for Forrest Gump, or your recent, shall we say, less than memorable movies? Hanks is still a good actor, but when you surround yourself with mediocre scripts and idiots from corporate, you know what you get. A return to his early made for TV movies ). But no one sees themselves as evil. Not even Ex-Wife #2, who I’ve always considered the Handmaiden Of Lucifer. Compared to HOL, the computer HAL was a charming companion over for tea. That might sound pretty obvious. Hitler was actually a champion for the German Volk, and a relatively selfless one, especially compared to Hillary or Ted Kennedy. I’m not excusing Hitler for The Final Solution, but his body count was much lower than Stalin, and he didn’t drop any nuclear bombs on civilians, so please let’s see the Hitler baiting for the propaganda it is.
The baiting is a device our country uses to excuse its own unrestricted civilian eradication campaigns, as one much smarter than myself has stated. If you compare the leader of Iraq or Syria to Hitler, than it is okay to firebomb those cities. Because that is what Hitler deserved because he was evil. Today, we admit to dirty CIA mind control experiments, get the true body count on Stalin, admit to several times almost accidentally starting a nuclear war, and yet no one is allowed a rational discussion on Hitler. It is imperative to the imperial paradigm that he stays evil. Like he was the devil in disguise. Was he a dick? Sure. So was FDR. FDR didn’t give two hoots about the Jews getting killed in Germany, by the way. Nor did Churchill. Both did nothing about it and sometimes actually harmed the Jews through their policies. So don’t moralize to me on that one. The simple fact is that nobody was blameless in the war. We weren’t The Arsenal Of Democracy, we were the Arsenal Of Employment and the Arsenal Of Empire. But let’s get back on point, which was that Hitler wasn’t as evil as depicted ( it is all relative. The Japanese Americans were never killed or worked to death like the Jews were, but if our government was so much better than the Nazi’s, we never should have placed the native born Japanese in concentration camps to begin with ), and he NEVER saw himself as evil. Nobody ever does.
Charles Manson was lashing out at rich bitches-and don’t you dare tell me you haven’t thought about it-to start a needed revolution. Revolutions don’t happen in a vacuum. People die. Royalists died at the hands of American Revolutionaries. Blacks died to keep Whites in power, and now Whites are dying at the hands of Blacks as they exempt themselves from welfare cuts as the government goes broke. And, really, who cares about those Whites? Dumb asses should not be living amongst Blacks. White cops are being assassinated by Blacks, and nobody sees this as a revolution ( granted, that could have been a false flag attack )? You live in that zone of conflict, you are simply Darwinist Dwarfs. Yes, your Momma DID raise a fool. Obviously. Do those Blacks see themselves as evil? Of course not. Do they despise Whites just for their skin color? Of course. Just as we despise Muslims overseas for their religion ( we aren’t allowed to despise Muslims domestically of course. To that, I’ll not fall into the trap of inciting violence. You figure it out yourself, if you want your local area to descend into European anarchy ).
When a judge sentences a non-violent criminal to prison for the possession of drugs, a prison sentence usually far longer than that of a rapist or even a murderer, he is more than likely passing a death penalty. Back in the first half decade after AIDS ( a disease possibly manufactured, by scientists who of course didn’t think of themselves as evil ), the prison population developed the disease at current African levels. About a third ( officially recorded as far less of course ). That was way back then, and I’d wager that now at least half the inmates have it. In effect, any sentence to jail carries a fifty-fifty chance of an execution by sodomy. All because you had drugs in your possession. Of course the propagandists claim any possession is for sale and any sale is to school grade children, but surely you can see through that immature logic? Does the judge see himself as evil? Why would he? He is enforcing order on a violent society. His minions in the prison industry feel they are doing the best they can with their limited resources. His minions in the military are Just Following Orders like good little Brownshirts, but they don’t feel they are being evil. Drug dealers deserve what they get, cause people die of drugs and it isn’t the addicts fault, somehow. Liquor dealers are innocent killing people, but ILLICIT drug dealers are guilty. But not LEGAL drug dealers. See how easy you fall for the hype and mind control?
Is the State Trooper who plants drugs in your car to get a conviction evil? Of course not. You were profiled and he knows you are guilty but can’t prove it. He is just helping rid society of a scumbag. If you started yelling about your rights and citing the Constitution, then he knows for sure you are guilty of some crime he can’t prove. If you get lippy with him, that is his proof. We may see this as evil, our Republic long ago descended into a police state, but he is just part of the Thin Blue Line. Hell, he is heroic, taking a chance by doing something illegal to save the taxpayers money. He deserves a medal. And don’t start passing judgment there, because most of us are little cogs in big evil machines and we couldn’t admit that if we were being tortured. Because we ain’t evil, we could never do evil. You know that sawdust they put in McDonalds hamburgers? Just a filler, and perhaps even with fiber ( and that is good stuff, obviously ). Is this a poison and a way to fleece the rubes? Naw, just a way to keep costs down, right? So the worker at McDonalds isn’t evil. But the scientists and CEO of Monsanto is, surely, with those GMO’s that push poisonous herbicides? Why?
This is where we get into self-delusion for self-profit, with the concurrent accusations of evil elsewhere, deflecting our guilt. The minimum wage worker at McDonald’s is innocent, even though he is pushing poison to stay employed. Sawdust and pink slim keeps costs down, which means he doesn’t get downsized and replaced by a machine. He doesn’t think of himself as evil, mostly because he just gets minimum wage and isn’t in charge of anything. And most of the early members of the National Socialist Party were unpaid volunteers, motivated to help rid the nation of communists. No one blames the retard behind the counter at Mickey’s, but he is part of the machine of evil. But everyone does it. The engineer worker at a defense contractor doesn’t drop bombs from drones on civilian wedding parties, but doesn’t he design the things that do? But he isn’t evil, either, by his or most other peoples viewpoint. He clearly profits off of evil, but yet isn’t evil.
But the drug dealer is evil, according to the engineer. The drug dealer only sells to willing customers. The engineer only sells to one willing customer, the Pentagon. One is evil and one is not. But why? The drug dealer usually has no choice. He is either an unemployable former convict, or received a ghetto education which is no education at all and saw what a racket college debt is and so stays local and is hired local, by the drug trade. Willing locals desire his product. Drugs were not illegal until the twentieth century, and there was little crime or child addicts or Mexican cartels involved. Why are they considered evil? Are they dicks, like Hitler, on occasion? Sure. But they don’t see themselves as evil. When your product is illegal, you have no choice but to conduct your own enforcement of the rules. This can get violent. So could ridding your homeland of undesirable elements like the Jews. Again, I’m not excusing, I’m explaining. No one sees themselves as an evil person. That is what self-delusion does.
But given all of the above, good and evil are a myth we can’t escape from. It is almost at the point of saturation 24/7. As propaganda from the government to hide its own sins, as tribal campfire tale to justify killing other tribes, and as profit and entertainment. Since no one sees themselves as evil, if for no other reason than self-justification for earning their daily bread, most often because evil is simply a device used by others to excuse their own evil, than how can good and evil be the lens everyone worries so much about? People are always screwing each other over. Always. A LOT of resources go towards minimizing that fact. And it is all wasted, because you are always getting screwed over. The police? What do they actually do? They only attempt to catch and bring in for punishment a fraction of criminals. They are there to protect the government, only incidentally a spillover effect to Protect And Serve the citizens. Only a few percent even ACT evil, but just by being they are evil anyway. They are little different than the McDonalds worker. Do you know why the resources are spent anyway? Because that excuses our own evil. Deflect.
By no means am I attempting some metaphysical debate. This stuff actually matters. A Lot. Come the collapse, you are following the myths you paid to read and are watching out for Evil Motorcycle Gangs, looting and stealing and raping. You know, kind of what your troops are going to be doing shortly. Because there is no monopoly on evil, because good Christian folk will be killing with just as much viciousness and ruthlessness as a group of escaped prisoners, but with total justification as they tell themselves their own self serving myths, you can’t expect anyone to NOT be evil. Why do you think tribes are so important? Sure, the whole helping and hunting and help with defense and help raising children. All very important. No man an island and yada, yada. Tribal identity does two very important things, the original myths. It justifies any evil you do, which you then of course don’t regard as evil, and it makes everything anyone outside the tribe does evil by its very nature. Your tribe are the Yanks, everyone else is Hitler with evil SS dudes killing Jews just because they can. The children of Hitler are evil as they will grow up to be SS and the women are evil because they have more SS children.
Right now, in an age of plenty, we do evil to keep the bread on our table, and in the future after the collapse we will do evil to keep the bread on our table. But we aren’t the evil ones. There will be evil Harley Davidson riders, evil prison gangs and evil Federal troops, but there will also be evil mothers and fathers, evil children, evil Amish and Quakers. They are all evil. Both because they are not of our tribe but because they will kill us when they are hungry enough. And once they have enough food, they will kill us to either keep us from killing themselves or another 101 justifications. The only reason the Nation State came about was colonial spoils, and the only reason it was accepted was because it allowed continental size colonial theft. For a time the state was our tribe. Leftist Hillary voting Hippie bitches still use oil we killed middle easterners for, all the while deploring evil. But colonial spoils uncollected or unavailable spell the end of the nation state.
We are going back to a decentralized tribal structure. And you either learn Rule One of your tribe or you won’t be welcome there for long, or survive along with them if you are all dumb asses. Your tribe is good, all other tribes are evil. Rule One. I spend a lot of time refuting the goodness of our nation, but that isn’t because I’m not tribal. Well, I’m not, as far as being a fan of the state, knowing that soon a decentralized force is inevitable. But I also do so because you need to know that everyone is evil. When that is pointed out, we OBVIOUSLY exclude ourselves, our tribe. That is wrong. But you still enjoy the benefits of that being wrong, rather than frame it the traditional moralizing Good Verses Evil myth. Don’t hesitate doing something because you think it is evil. No, look at it from My Tribe Verses Your Tribe. It is the perpetrator of evil that is the distinction, not the act. Repeat after me. There is no evil here, just there. Since everyone does evil, but nobody thinks they are evil, you can’t define evil by its occurrence, only by its practitioner. Get your head screwed on the correct way, it is only your life on the line.

The thing about having a tribe is that you should have one right now. It should be of value to you and you should contribute to the welfare of the group. Much better to get one now than to either be without or have to enter as a low on the totem pole new member.ReplyDelete
A big part of my tribe just moved away. Damn him. Still stuck with the "married into" tribe. Easier said than done, mostly.Delete
Modern society makes it difficult to have a tribe.Delete
My current tribe is my immediate family. Maybe through family members we can link up with other families but personally I don't know anyone I can trust. Yeah that doesn't excite me but that's just the way it's worked out. My recent attempt at adding a member has failed as he's leaving the state never to return. That was a serious blow to my nefarious plans.
I don't know if I just got more withdrawn and cynical, but it does seem tribe was much easier a few decades ago. Or, it could have just been my youth that made it easier then. I think it is near enough impossible now though.Delete
We can make a difference between defensive evil and aggressive evil.ReplyDelete
Defensive evil is for instance culling excess mouths because there isn't enough food for everybody. In itself it would be somewhat understandable, but the devil is in microeconomics : what if I kill one person more than I need to, just to eliminate risk ?
Aggressive evil is attacking somebody in a way or another although you don't need to, like stealing food although you are already more than comfortable.
There is also the hunger for power, as far as I understood people striving for power don't have enough of it, and the reason they don't have enough of it is because they have some flaw that actually increases with their hunger for power.
Aggressive evil is also about destroying those who are better than you. My guess is that the well-prepared survivalist is better than anybody else after the colapse and thus will be the subject of a lot of jealousy and sadism.
You could, I guess, go Full Godfather then ("it is better to be feared than respected"), but then this would be some sort of defensive evil, and as long as there is order (even mafia order) there are people willing to live with it.
Aggressive evil is actually very close to madness. More often than not it is self-defeating, but after the collapse and without any law enforcement you might have to kill the aggressive evil guys. Those guys will of course say the same thing about you.
A well made aspect in the australian movie "The Rover" is that everybody was quite a bit crazy.
"Those guys will of course say the same thing about you." None of see ourselves as evil, so isn't all evil defensive?Delete
Oh ye of Greatest Locks, I think there is a difference between personal morals and socially acceptable behavior. It plays out in the "mob mentality". People who's individual morals would never allow them to do such evil things on their own are released of inhibitions when they see others misbehaving.ReplyDelete
I had a Jehovah's Witness come by my house for a few years for a bible study (we never ended up agreeing but it was an interesting discussion and he was a great guy). Say what you want about them but, they stand by their convictions. Choosing not to take part in elections because they refuse to condone man's government (though they do submit to it), refusing miltary service, generally bucking excepted "church doctrine" etc. When the subject of Hitler came up, he said something I thought was profound. If he was told to shoot a Jew or join them, he said "I've already made my choice. If they decide to treat me with evil because of it I'm still right with God." In other words, you're just going to have to shoot me. While it may seem like an evolutionary dead end kind of thinking it really is what we should all strive for. If we make the golden rule the basis of our tribal culture instead of "us vs. them" we may all end up nailed to crosses but, who do we ultimately answer to and what would He be more pleased with?
Well, honestly, do you think you've benefited from a Golden Rule country, or a Us V Them country? We are all sitting pretty amongst the excess oil empire wealth of the previous generations and not close to all of it was domestic supply but colonial plunder.Delete
Excellent; knocked this one out of the park! I particularly liked your Hitler/Stalin/nuking innocents example. It was one of those “aha moments” for me. Yes, I was aware of all of this, but it was never quite put to me in such an effective fashion.ReplyDelete
As with the one minions comment, I too am finding it particularly trying to form a tribe with anyone these days. I can’t recall their ever being so much of a division in the past, politically speaking. And I could never be around anyone that supports anti-nature philosophies for any length of time, which it seems that most these days do.
To be clear, I’m about as far from being a commicrat as you can get. But I do find it interesting that it was two republican presidents whose policies ultimately led to the prison industrial complex. Nixon added stiff penalties (prior to this it was a fine and more or less a slap on the hand) and Reagan helped to build up the prison system to much greater levels.
Speaking Aids, Richard Simmons is making himself awfully scarce these days. Add in a few mysterious trips to the hospital, and it makes one wonder how much longer he’s going to be around? If I’m right, just remember that you heard it here first.
Oops, sorry, I put your reply under ghostsnipers. His reply:Delete
Damn, I barely know 4 people, let alone 40. Not sure how my B-POD neighbors are-I suspect proto-Yuppies.
Good stuff, one of your best.ReplyDelete
Regarding tribe. Right now it is almost impossible to gather a tribe of say 10 or more people because everybody is on a different page, though most thinking people are in the same book. As the decline becomes more apparent so will tribe members. People tend to migrate towards others like them or find common ground, for security and assistance.
Currently I have no one that I can trust 100% but I believe (and hope) that will change as conditions worsen. Broadening my viewpoint, there are maybe 40 adults within 5 miles of me that I would consider right now to be potential tribe members. Adaptability is indeed the key to life. Thanks for a good post.
Reagan needed a place to put all those in the mental hospitals he closed :)Delete
I agree with your numbers. Maybe a way to see this is : how many people have been taught to keep their word ?Delete
(and : how many actually keep their word ?)
It is a shame this is no longer adhered to, granted, but unless the majority feel this way it doesn't work. When it is just the individual striving mightily to keep his word, but no others, he just gets taken advantage of. How can you alone be honorable amongst thieves?Delete
"How can you alone be honorable amongst thieves?"Delete
I hate seeing stuff like that, and I hope you were being facetious.
I'm lazy, and I'm selfish. I do stuff because it's what I want to do and no one else has anything to do with it. If 1000 people are doing something wrong I will still do it right.
Maybe this has something to do with why I can barely tolerate anyone and spend most of my time alone. I am so done with human disappointments.
It was intended more as a caution rather than a reason to be just as bad. Damn, I'm pissing off minions left and right today.Delete
Sorry. I meant to say in my previous comment that it was Nixon that increased drug possession penalties.ReplyDelete
You wrote, "no one is evil."ReplyDelete
God wrote in Romans 3:9-18 "What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin; as it is written,“There is none righteous, not even one; There is none who understands, There is none who seeks for God; All have turned aside, together they have become useless;There is none who does good,There is not even one. Their throat is an open grave,With their tongues they keep deceiving, The poison of asps is under their lips;Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; Their feet are swift to shed blood,Destruction and misery are in their paths,And the path of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes.”"
I would argue that every action or thought falls into the category of either pleasing or displeasing to God. Granted, there are plenty of grey areas where a person might not be certain which category their action or thought falls into, but eventually you'll know as they'll be relevant towards your punishment or reward after death (and sometimes before). Relevant to your article today, there are definitely occasions of just self defense, unjust self defense (seriously), just and unjust war, and execution for capital crimes. It's not just a matter of perspective.
Of course, I'm arguing from a macro-perspective here, as a matter of tribal survival. So, if you are acting to cause, or your inaction causes, the death of the women and children of your tribe due to a moralistic interpitation, do you think that is what your god wishes?Delete
