Corruption: Sociopathic Activities

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a seperation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.” —George Washington

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. … We have restricted credit, we have restricted opportunity, we have controlled development, and we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” —Woodrow Wilson

“Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests, which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.” —Theodore Roosevelt

“It was natural and perhaps human that the privileged princes of these new economic dynasties, thirsting for power, reached out for control over government itself. They created a new despotism and wrapped it in the robes of legal sanction. In its service new mercenaries sought to regiment the people, their labor, and their property. And as a result the average man once more confronts the problem that faced the Minute Man.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt

“I mean there were planning sessions of high State Department officials and Council on Foreign Relations—it’s the main, so-called private, input into foreign affairs. …[1]+ the basic idea is that the United States should create a system of global order, extending as far as possible, which would operate for the benefit of privileged sectors of power within the United States, and their counterparts elsewhere.[2]+ With regard to the third world, it simply had to be kept under control. So if moves toward independent development took place, they had to be stopped. And if it looked as if they might be successful, and influence others, they might be what planners call ‘a virus that might infect others.’ Then, they have to be really destroyed. And so we have a brutal history of intervention and violence to try to ensure that the South will subordinate itself to the interests of the major sectors of power in the rich, developed countries, and the United States is foremost among them. I mean, those are basic themes of policy. They don’t explain everything that happens, but policy rarely departs very far from those major themes. Now they can be implemented in different ways: so if the Clinton Administration and the Bush Administration are not identical—they’re somewhat different, in fact, in the ways they proceed—but the basic dominating themes have not changed very much.” —Noam Chomsky

Description

Sociopaths subvert us through corruption: not only indirectly, by corrupting corporations and the government, but also directly, by herding and pithing the populace.[3]+

Although most people are benevolent, it only takes a minute percentage of malevolent people, at the top and in key positions, to effectively corrupt an organization, a process, or a nation.[4]+ External and internal propaganda—for instance, in the form of exaggerated threats to national security—can be used to rationalize even the most wretched and ill-advised behavior.[5]+ And internal compartmentalization can hide such behavior from even those helping to implement it.[6]+

Using these strategies, sociopaths have ruined our government. Domestic and foreign policies, indeed, are increasingly becoming tools of corruption.[7]+ Domestically, the government has been involved with smuggling drugs,[8]+ violating people’s rights,[9]+ repressing lawful groups,[10]+ rigging elections,[11]+ conducting terrorism,[12]+ and assassinating leaders.[13]+ Abroad, the government has additionally[14]+ been involved with subjugating economies,[15]+ oppressing populations,[16]+ torturing people,[17]+ employing death squads,[18]+ causing civilian slaughters,[19]+ militarily attacking countries,[20]+ overthrowing democratic governments,[21]+ establishing puppet governments,[22]+ and installing brutal dictators.[23]+

These corrupt activities reflect the state within. Obstructing justice, the government conceals evidence of its own crimes.[24]+ It also ignores certain known crimes, such as its own—making a mockery of the rule of law.[25]+ The police, the FBI, the Justice Department, and congressional investigations—the guards against corruption—have long since been corrupted.[26]+ They are now the ultimate architects of cover-ups and setups.[27]+ Through “free trade” agreements and international treaties, even our national sovereignty has been betrayed to various corporate and foreign jurisdictions.[28]+

Sociopaths also subvert us, not by just hyping, but by staging—or manufacturing—events. Used for herding us psychologically, this method is known as problem-reaction-solution, or the shock doctrine.[29]+ Sociopaths first allow or create a crisis, such as a “natural” catastrophe, an economic crash, or a physical attack. The people, of course, react to the crisis and desire a solution. Waiting in the wings, the sociopaths then roll out their premeditated “solution”: in their own interest, not the people’s. The establishment politicians and media finally sell, rationalize, and force this “solution” down our throats. Since this method can greatly accelerate (anti)social change, sociopaths in history have often planned or used this method—for example, Operation Northwoods,[30]+ the Gulf of Tonkin attack,[31]+ the USS Liberty attack,[32]+ and the 9/11 attacks[33]+—all false-flag operations.[34]+ The contrived treachery of 9/11, to illustrate, was used to pass the rights-robbing USA PATRIOT Act, to establish the repression-ready Department of Homeland Security, and to launch and sustain unwarranted, illegal, and immoral wars for profit and control.

Even worse, sociopaths pith the populace. This is circuitously done through political campaign contributions: legalized bribery.[35]+ With over ten thousand political action committees and over thirty-five thousand lobbyists spending billions of dollars every year, corporate power now eclipses civic power in the government by around a hundred to one.[36]+ We have thus had the political process hijacked away from us by corporate interests, by sociopathic interests—which constitute a near oligarchy.[37]+ To directly pith the populace, sociopaths orchestrate the repression of lawful groups;[38]+ the poisoning of the populace through vaccinations,[39]+ drinking water,[40]+ etc.;[41]+ and the stealing of elections—including both the 2000[42]+ and the 2004[43]+ presidential elections. Perhaps the most wrenching and evil sociopathic activities are, however, domestic assassinations—such as the murders of Malcolm X,[44]+ Robert F. Kennedy,[45]+ Martin Luther King, Jr.,[46]+ and John F. Kennedy.[47]+

[1] Note: Omitted portion of quote is as follows. “They were having study groups from 1939 through 1945, in which they recognized, clearly, that the US would emerge from the Second World War as the world dominant power, and they made extensive plans about how it should use that power. And if you look at the years that followed—when many of the same people were in government, in corporations, in planning and decision-making positions—in various ways they implemented similar plans. And it continues pretty much until the present. Now, of course, plans always change, circumstances change, you need different tactics, there are different pretexts, and so on, but the basic themes remain pretty much the way they were articulated in the war-time studies groups, of which we have the documents, you can read them. And they’re not terribly surprising; they are that,”
[2] Note: Omitted portion of quote is as follows: “Well, that means primarily the corporate sector, which pretty much dominates American society and is closely linked to similar sectors in other societies. And that means a world of a kind of liberal internationalism in which countries are compelled, in one way or another, to subordinate themselves to the economic and political and social arrangements that are supportive of US-power interests. That means opportunities to invest, exploitation of the populations, access to resources and markets, control of the central resources—like energy. It was understood, clearly in the Second World War and before, that the control of the energy resources of the world is a major instrument of global power. The Middle East oil-producing regions were described in the mid-1940s as ‘a stupendous source of strategic power and one of the great material prizes in world history’: the most strategically important part of the world. And of course, the US was going to take control over that. That’s what a lot of contemporary developments are about. That’s a major theme that runs through the whole period. Europe and Japan had to be reconstructed in certain ways, in ways which undermine the labor movements from the left and restored the traditional societies pretty much.”

Note: The highest authority in this country is We the People. The second highest authority is the Constitution. In 1787, our Founding Fathers established this social contract, the Constitution, to define our system of government and laws: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. … This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land…” Therefore, as long as We the People do not collectively reject this social contract, each U.S. citizen and government official, including the President, is bound by the Constitution, our constitutional laws, and our officially authorized treaties. Indeed, members of our government explicitly swear an oath to the Constitution, to remind them of this social contract and its authority above all government.
Note: Under the Constitution, three coequal branches of federal government were created: the Legislative Branch to create laws, the Judicial Branch to judge laws, and the Executive Branch to execute laws. The President falls under the Executive Branch. As stated in the Constitution, “he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” He cannot break, disregard, change, or create laws—even if he has delusions of executive privileges, executive orders, signing statements, national security, immunity granting, or his or her role as, according to the only mention of it in the Constitution, “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.” Even members of our military must take an oath to “support and defend the Constitution,” to “bear true faith and allegiance to the same,” and, as affirmed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice, to obey only lawful orders. Hence… No one is above the law!

Note: As Noam Chomsky said, “Roughly speaking, I think it’s accurate to say that a corporate elite of managers and owners governs the economy and the political system as well, at least in very large measure. The people, so-called, do exercise an occasional choice among those who Marx once called ‘the rival factions and adventurers of the ruling class.’”
Note: This can also be called fascism. As Franklin D. Roosevelt warned, “the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any other controlling private power.”
