The “People” are Courting a Collective Sociopath!
After my latest journal post I am left wondering, “How can people just fall in line with the will of the government and obey like this.” I just had to put my thoughts down (in a vent), and in describing our government the first word that came to mind was “sociopath.” I was about to hit the “backspace” button and then decided to google it to see if maybe the government IS sociopathic. Here is what I found about the characteristics of a sociopath:
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

- Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim’s life

Now I am not speaking in terms of just Obama. On the contrary, I had many members of the government in mind including Bush, Pelosi, Geitner, the Fed, and many, many others. But what pisses me off about this whole thing is that “We the People” have allowed the government to treat us like its bitch (that’s right I said it). Every now and then we get the nerve to stand up to them, and they back hand us, make us feel like it is our fault and then attempt to reassure us that they are going to fix everything … only to begin the cycle all over again. If any of you have dated (or married to a sociopath) this might seem familiar to you.
What I want you to do, is read this in all honesty. I think every single one of those characteristics describe our government. I think many Americans are ready to dissolve this “relationship with a sociopath” and take back our freedom, but those who are still “willing victims” need to wake up and realize that they are being controlled by an entity that cares nothing about their welfare, and they are in fact dangerous.
