“…Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy… censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, ‘This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,’ the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.” –Robert A. Heinlein
I’ve been reading the website for the book titled, “Political Ponerology“. It’s about time someone wrote a book about “evil” and the manifestations of psychopaths in politics and in society! With very few exceptions down the ages, discussions in moral philosophy – the study of “right conduct” – have failed to systematically investigate the origin, nature, and course of EVIL in a manner free from supernatural imaginings.
Evil was often considered something to be endured rather than something that could be understood and eliminated by rational measures. A “scientific” approach is called “ponerology”: or, the study of evil, comes from the Greek word “poneros” = evil.
Historically, in human society, secrecy has been the universal tool of priests, politicians and bankers to control civilizations for personal power, control and possession. For me, personally, I have a very simple view of “good” and “evil”. The lion and the zebra is a simple analogy: What is good for the Lion is evil for the Zebra!
One is the Predator, the other is the Prey. Predators and Parasites are everywhere in the “natural” environment. The simple fact is that Predators and Parasites ARE what they ARE! They cannot behave in any other way. It’s what they Do, and how they Think, it’s how they Survive! They cannot be changed unless they are removed from their natural environment and controlled, in a zoo or prison.
A common problem with “normal people” is that they expect the Predators and Parasites to NOT BE WHAT THEY ARE! It’s a simple inability to see what is front of their faces. The fact is that “Predators Kill Prey”. So, if you don’t what to become Prey for a Predator or Parasite, there are two option: 1) kill the predator or 2) stay away from them!
However, we must first recognize a predator when we see them! By nature the are sneaky, covert, stealthy. They hide in secrecy… They live among us, everywhere, blending into our environment, into the routine of our daily lives. They forbid us to LOOK at them!!! Then, when you least expect it, they POUNCE and devour their “food”. Their “food” is US!
It’s really not too hard to understand…. But we must be continually AWARE of predators and parasites…. they are hidden by secrecy.” — Lawrence R. Spencer.
