Embrace Your Inner Sociopath

To be the best Sociopath; Let the Fantasy inform your perception of Reality. In the Fantasy, the perfection of self and the world can be contemplated, and such cognitions can inform your next movement and change. Your self should exist outside the Religion, it should need no labels or names or position, but it should influence the Religion: Any resource you want, any pleasure, should come to you—as the Buddha.

The buddhist looks upon the other like he looks upon the worm. If he doesn’t, he’s not enlightened. The Sociopath knows Buddha didn’t laugh with the other; he was laughing at the vanity of the other.

If a Thai monk laughs at you you know he’s the real deal; but they don’t, do they? Not much laughter in Thailand these days. They’re fake. They should laugh at the deluded ones, but they don’t, because they want something from the other.

Do you think the Buddha was a Sociopath? Maybe he was, never met the guy, though if he was, he was an enlightened one—like the Martin Armstrong’s, Julian Assange or Ted Kaczynski’s of our time. Even the Buddha tried to help other humans by teaching them, so he wasn’t a completely detached Sociopath. He was a brilliant teacher.

But the Buddha was allowed to enjoy his life; Don’t you find it strange that today we punish our enlightened Sociopaths?

If the spirit of Buddhism is contempt for the vanity of Man, then the spirit of Hinduism is annihilation. Maybe that desire for annihilation is hiding something. No one wants to talk about India. India is the birthplace of the first Religion: Hinduism. And no one wants to talk about it?

Imperialism came later; and with Imperialism Religion became a more organized affair; because the transportation of grains required clerks. And was it not Armenian clerks that organized the genocide?—Of Armenians.

What is the spirit of Imperialism? It is sadistic pleasure—pure and simple. You can study the Wars of Vietnam for years and still not get it—foreign men killed millions of young male peasants in the paddy fields during the day—and at night they had sex with the sisters of the dead boys. And the girls had sex with the foreign guys who had killed their brothers.

Might as well be chimps.

No one wants to talk about India. You want to know why there are so many dumbasses in India? 8000 years of Religion and there are over a billion retards there? The rest are mostly slimy smart scumbags. Why? Why so many? Why didn’t the smart guys, who were honest with themselves and the Reality, multiply?

Because they were killed, that’s why. And it’s not just Hinduism: Spinoza called Bullshit, and the first instinct of the Jewish Sociopaths was to kill him. The Sociopathic Leadership failed in that attempt, but he was ostracized to the point that he wasn’t able to have a wife and copy his genes. Not much has changed, you call Bullshit on 9-11 and you’d better have tenure. 

And the Species? It’s a Religious Species, and the gene sequences to catch the Reality is inactive in the Dumbass—bred out of them. They’re not conscious of the Reality; It’s just the Fantasy for them. And they never wake up:

Stalin’s true-believing psychopaths deported around 10% of Lithuania’s population; the stubborn ones, the smart ones and the ones that might protest were identified and sent to the Gulag. They were penned in, worked hard and wasted away. Their troublesome genes removed from the future pool of slaves and dumbasses. And this story is an old one that keeps repeating, it’s called husbandry by some.

The definition of husbandry: noun

  1. the cultivation and production of edible crops or of animals for food;

  2. agriculture; farming, the science of raising crops or food animals.

And if by chance you’re born with the ability to catch the Reality and dumb enough to speak out, you’re punished like Spinoza and countless others.

Each type of Religious brain has inactive sequences. For example, true-believing psychopaths have inactive gene sequences pertaining to empathy that benefit the collective survival of the Religious group—that is, they make for good killers. And the masses of dumbasses worship them. 

Now we are approaching extreme instability; and you can’t be nice enough or kind enough or generous enough. Your neighbors will turn you in and turn against you. They’ll turn you in for a pat on the head. Then you’ll be robbed or removed. 

To survive, you need to be the best Sociopath.

          Most people don’t know this, but the paper gold represents the gold in the ground. The gold above ground doesn’t really have an agreed upon price; though that may change after Basel 3.

          Rothschild needs to get the Gold out of the ground as cheaply as possible to compensate the oil exporters … bit by bit, so to speak: The gold in the ground matches the oil in the ground. The oil above ground is consumed, though the Gold above ground isn’t.

          That begs the question: What does the Gold above ground represent? And one possible answer is: All accumulated Capital.

            1. The oil energy isn’t consumed in any final sense; it is transferred via energy exchange into tools, real estate, machines etc. So the hypothesis is that the paper-gold represents the gold in the ground that matches the oil in the ground, and the gold-above-ground represents the capital accumulated by the oil age/consumption.

              The present paradigm is focused on keeping production continuous.

              The reason why there’s so much paper-gold is because it’s trying to match the huge glut of oil-in-the-ground that’s being pumped continuously… “Hey guys, here’s some petrodollars for ya oil and please don’t convert so much into paper-gold and PLEASE don’t convert that paper into the physical … let’s cooperate by recycling da paper-gold until we hit another huge vein of the physical, capeesh? I really hope you understand because if you don’t I’ll bomb da fuck outta ya!”

              Just kidding … Rothschild wouldn’t speak like that. But I hope you catch my drift …

              Edit: So what’s Rothschild’s job? What does Rothschild do everyday?

              He has to get on the horn continually and call up the Gold CEO prospectors, in Australia for example, and ask them what they got cooking and what they can deliver, and when, and can they accept the futures price of x to get that Bling out of the ground? If there’s an increase in secret flows out of the Eurodollar into the Physical, or production costs are inflating in Oz, then Rothschild has to let the paper price inflate (devalue the Eurodollar) because he can’t get enough bling out of the ground at x price to match the demand-for-physical from oil exporters and surplus countries.

              It’s that or he has to tap his reserve of above-ground-gold, which I doubt he’d like to do, to keep the oil flowing to the Core. I guess some unlucky countries have been attacked for their Bling because of this most pressing issue. Sad Rothschild. This nexus between Oil and Gold is also why peasants in the West have been discouraged to buy Bling.

              That’s why Basel 3 is so dangerous; it’s essentially saying the status quo is over … that the Gold-above-ground is now needed …

Science has been done well enough. There’s probably managerial policies set in stone that haven’t been implemented except in China. That new measurement of a social credit score should take off. Future probably won’t need many financiers even for a while. The herd (like me) could be culled but Elites would need a more reasonable way than say death rays from space. Maybe natural disasters.

    2. A lot of the billions are meaningless because they had their times wasted. The 1950s and part of the 1960s showed that soldiers in the GI Bill could become good managers and sometimes engineers. If you didn’t “make it” (for any generation) by 2000, you were left to suffer for the rest of your life by having your time wasted. Schooling was already bad by the 1990s and if you didn’t pick up on that, then chances of ever working in a real science lab was minimal. Even the ones who made it through PhD programs had to deal with so many politics in terms of “the actual science” is that they could only get a job if they regurgitated their stupid corrupt bosses.

      And as for the US, with offshoring factories, the best Americans who could get a job could barely survive and a lot left their fields. Teaching adjucts with no future. There was a lot of garbage and propaganda in the educations fields, enough time wasted, where no wonder the billions produced mostly meaningless crap even at all. Look at the biology journals, or the medical studies. Most papers are garbage. And some avenues in private corporations were just as bad; you do anything to keep a job, because you won’t get another one in the field.

      Upward mobility shrank severely by the 1980s. That was 40 years ago. The population control agenda meant that real science practically stopped, exactly as Orwell said in 1984.

With liquidation of Chavism in Venezuela, and setting up Bolsonaro in Brasil, I think the entire continent may now start moving to some kind of light facism there. The another advantage of both Latin America and Africa is that their share in oil consumption is not very big: I can imagine any of them, coupled with the remains of the Middle East oil in some ‘food for oil’ scheme, going for at least century yet. But it won’t be blockchain technofascism as it is expected it in the West, even by the esteemed Cathal. The last bet would be India, a country which recently suddenly started to rise whereas China is tanking. Also, India is in much better position to import oil from Middle East, which in this case does not have to go through Malacca Strait (the place where China CAN indeed be stopped, unlike in the South China Sea). Also, India has both industry and population accustomed to great poverty, the latter being very helpful in future. Anyone here wanting to move there?!
    As for Grand Solar Minimum, I think it was foresighted for 2030-2040, so already for ‘After the Reset’ time. The concept of solar minimums was created by John Eddy in 1976, so already after globalism ‘China turn’ with 1972 Nixon visit there. As far as I understood China has been Henry Kissinger’s obession and pet project. The man, unfortuantely, is a political scientist. Political scientist and lawyers are the scourge of our century. We should have followed Plato and give goverments to philosophers and natural scientists (natural science was a part of philosophy in ancient Greece, this is why Aristotle wrote so much on zoology, for example). But probably we will just become victims of some Kissingerian schemes…
    Anyway, if Maunder Minimum is true, then the most urgent task for world govermnet is to destroy the West, Japan, and China before they catch up with the truth. Contrary to Cathal, I think that China is too big a drain on resources to be allowed to thrive.

  9. Exercising thinking in a cynical mode further:
    Just a devious thought struck me that maybe the current mass exodus of “refugees” from Africa and Middle East to the West is conducted with a hidden rationale of ‘Make Africa and the Middle East livable and manageable again’. Trump recently demanded that West Europe takes back all “national” ISIS fighters back (!). That, of course, means that the West is not to be livable anymore. Well, not many will cry after arrogant Germania and her always-best-learn-from-us Scandinavian ilk. Down it goes haughty Numenor.

    So, here the projection for a population reduction under the peak oil and the solar minimum conditions:
    Stage I (until 2025, when the oil production is prognosed to fall between 35-50% from now; this stage will probably start after decline in fracking, USA producing now only 1,5 milion barrels per day of true [i.e. conventional] oil) ): down goes North America, West Europe and some troublesome, too populous, too resources-barren MENA lands (thinking Turkey, Egypt? Iran and Saudis need depopulation too, if they are to have some oil to sell/exchange in the future). East Europe, having Czech uranium, Polish coal, silver and copper, and Romanian oil, can stay if they join Russia. Also, the east Europe will not be affected as much as the west Europe by the disappearance of Gulf Stream which already started (20% down). Of the West, maybe Australia and New Zealand will remain (low oil consumption, too).
    The net result of Stage I: between 40 to 50 milion barrels of oil demand per day removed!

    Stage II (until 2035): the rest of Europe, Russia, China and Japan go down. Probably will play out as a war of China vs. alliance of Russia, East Europe and Japan. Stage II follows mainly because someone needs to kill too popoulos China, otherwise maybe Russia could somehow limp into the future with remnants of East and South Europe. The weak point of Russia are her declining oil and gas fields which are all in cold (soon colder) Siberia. But China has nothing, so no way China will leave Russia alone.

    After 2035: low energy future based on the last 20 mbd oil, with Africa (down from Sahara), Latin America and maybe India. All these countries are already prepared for low energy reality with low energy usage per capita: no need for windmills, batteries and electrification of society on the impossible scale needed in the West.

    It is hard to sleep with such thoughts if you live in Europe. Where to go and how fast?

      1. Putrid,
        I see your point, so let us consider following scenario:
        The Reset Day comes. The Western financial system collapses, together with its debts. The oil producing Middle East countries lose a lot of money and refuse to sell oil and gas to the West, unless their wealth be given back to them in commodities form (gold, grain etc). The West sends its ‘Last Crusade’ to the Middle East to enforce oil flow. Egypt, together with Saudis and Pakistan, which provides a nuclear shield, blocks Suez Canal (which is to Europe like Malacca Strait to China). NOW WHAT? UN jumping with ‘let’s have carbon credits, everyone, for the sake of our planet?!’
        I mean: how civilization is going to shift PEACEFULLY to the East? West will not go down with a whimper. Given its Faustian mentality (as duly noted by Spengler), I would rather expect a great fire, engulfing its foes (Russia, China) too.
        Also, neither Venezuela nor Yemen are depopulating on the scale you proposed (> 50% per year).
        And the international trade is already a shadow of its former self.

      2. Another point is that the fall of international trade will mainly bite the great industrial countries, Yemen has never been a great trading hub, and its future has never really depended on its main port, Aden.
        Otherwise, I think the trend has already started of resource-rich countries coupling with each other to trade in a sort of barter. Example: Last year was a year of the greatest drought in Germany on the scale of a century. On the other hand, Poland was cut in half by drought, with western part crops situation (under the influence of Atlantic, i.e. Gulf Stream climate) similar to Germany, but the eastern part being much better and still somehow managing to produce the crops as expected. However, Poland did not export its surplus wheat to Germany, as usually, but to Saudi Arabia, which the last year became the biggest buyer of Polish wheat export. Germany, the biggest and closest trade partner in EU, forsaken for Saudi Arabia ?! Even more tellingly, another big buyer of Polish wheat in 2018 was also a new client – Norway. I see in this exchange an early form of barter trade, namely food for fuel (gas and oil), with waning buying power of purely industrial countries like Germany or Japan.
        But such a trend also means a waning usefulness of a current form of money as a token for UNIVERSAL trade/exchange. And money which is not universally accepted, is not really money, just a commodity. The acceptance of money nowadays is secured by the state apparatus, so if a state goes, its money goes with it.
        Due to energy deflation situation and waning volume of trade, there is also no place for some supra-national entity in the form of a trading guild with its own money that could be universally enforced.

The moment social and physcial infrastructure stops functioning, there is less actionable claims to take possession of, therefore less wealth.
                Unless there be universal gold coin(s), I expect gold price to be too volatile and too useless to be money. Silver would be much better. When Spanish conquistadores came to the New World, they met there people for whom gold was not so valuable as for them. That happened because there was no global market, global gold money civilization at that time. With coming fragmentation of societies, it can happen again. Also, the destruction of infrastructure will be probably chaotic, and we may actually be left with relative gold surplus, I mean, gold value per unit of energy going down, for example. There will be less and less energy and the same, at least, amount of gold around.
                It may be safer not to trade with gold, since, without falling back at its intrinsic usefulness, the true price discovery of gold will be impossible, due to increasing, chaotic decline around. Remember – oil depletion never stops. Decline will never stop.

Gold standard era was the time of the first, expanding globalization (prior to WWI, the level of international trade pre-WWI was only reached back in 70ties), which somehow gives credibility to the idea that for gold money you need global, liquid gold market. But as globaliation winds up in coming years, this will be less and less possible.

            Bankers Kings conundrum is how to enforce bankers’ currency as trade currency. I suppose this is the real reason why they want One World Government (guarantees enforcement), and western lifestyle (guarantees liquidity) everywhere. The main problem is that with peak oil and grand solar minimum, One World government enforcement needs will become more energy intensive than ever (for example, high-energy US military, despite being the biggest oil consumer in the world, is remarkably ineffective against low-energy guerrila troops). Peak Oil and grand solar minimum together bring great problems, among else destroying the capacity of the West to be agricultural exporter even faster and thus the last remaining western carrot (food export). Peak oil limiting oil supply will naturally destroy oil ultimate usefulness (which depends on oil availability, which, in turn, depends on the presence of oil-based infrastructure) and thus the allure of carbon-based money. Example: at some point, the amount of food produced by industrial agriculture based on expensive fuels will have to go down, whereas non-oil based agriculture output will go up. I, mean, the carbon credit problem is how to make money out of something which is less and less used with time? Or, in other words, how to have a global currency without global trade or with decreasing global trade? Well, for all reasons above, I think global Gaia theocracy would be the least energy-intensive enforcement form. An energy-intensive alternative would be some form of technofeudalism, with fossil fuel output prioritized for global military.

          1. Overpriced LNG from USA is like overpriced piped gas from Russia in Europe (Poland paid one of the highest prices in Europe). It is a protection money anyway. KSA pays it too, buying overpriced arms from USA.
            What is more worrying is the complete naivety of population which drowned itself in the mass of CHF mortgages. Poles like to think about themselves as cunning and smart but unfortunately, stupid is as stupid does. Once I had thought that Internet will spread knowledge around the planet and will usher us in the new era of enlightment, but, unfortunately, there is simply not enough demand for knowledge to turn it into any critical mass, any singularity of any kind.

            On the other hand, the system has its internal logic which sometimes works to the advantage of the fool, like in the case of the transaction between Poland and KSA. Don’t see how Germany can keep EU together much longer, since energy descent will damp the demand for products of German industry (mainly auto industry with few chemical plants) even inside EU.

Not sure how realistic it is, I suppose those capacities may be set by Europan clients wishes rather than by Russian sellers offers. Well, pipelines rarely go at max capacities.
                Anyway, unlike oil, gas can be usually replaced by coil. But EU is the biggest oil importing region in the world. But so obsessed they are with gas that they have forsaken their oil import security. And oil, not gas, moves the world.

In 10 years Norway ‘cannot guarantee’, Dutch production goes to 0, and Russia will be in decline since Russian gas depends on 3 big fields which are all in decline already ( oil production likewise, everything depends on big fields). The Russian gas production spare capacity is just ending. And Qatar? No one really knows, like Saudi oil, Qatari gas production has many secrets.

Until now, Russia wasn’t really developing new reserves, just ramping-up old fields that went down after 1989. Also, Russia is big, but does it have enough for China, Europe, and herself? 70% of Russian gas production is still for domestic consumption. Finally, Russia in in lucky (?) position of not needing anyone, actually. But Germans showed already in 1941 how they desire her immense riches. Why should Russia trust them this time…?

Germany seeks alliance with Russia and China, all latest optic movements point to that.

                  2. True Russo-German alliance will never happen. Russia wants Europe, not Germany. Alliance with Germany would be suicidal for Russia in terms of her European clout. Germany is not really liked outside its borders, most people understand that Germany treats other European counteries – with exception of France maybe, like colonies, namely deindustrialilzing them (both Spanish and British empire had forbidden industry in their colonies, Germany follows similar policy, just in a different way). There is absolutely no reason why Russia should have invested in German industry (you mean Russia is incapable of building gas turbines?), instead spreading its traditional divide et empira policy over Europe. Remember: with the fall of USA, Germany automatically becomes too powerful for Europe – we are back to square one. And Russia will have to rebalance Europe. Too big for Europe, too small for the world, so goes the old saying about Germany.. That is the one of the conundrum of German politics: the coveted fall of Amis will only mean the need to keep Germany in cheek in other ways. It is already being made – with Germany courting Russia all the time, Amis worked hard to sow hate between Turkey and Germany, and so to close any future Baghdahbahn projects. Where are the Middle East footsteps for Germany nowhere. Turkey managed by USA, Syria by Russia, maybe Iran would do…but Iran can now choose between Russia and China. Everybody is in the middle east already, French, British, Russian, Chinese troops. But not German – they were allowed only to Afghanistan. The only two local oil basins in Europe – North Sea (UK, Norway, Denmark) and Carpathian basin (Romania, Poland) are also aligned with Empire.
                    Also, if someone did not yet attack Germany, it does not mean, he is afraid of her. Germany is the source of problems, not the solutions. Without Euro, there would not be German export surplus. Without Euro PIIGS debts would be already inflating away.
                    Germans are very good at that, doing something very bad and then pretending it was of no importance.
                    Germany’s love for Russia is unrequited love. The story about kindred souls is told in Germany, not Russia. Never understood why, since that are two very different countries. Read Gogol or Dostoyewski – the picture of German you got from them is mostly of narrow minded people without sense of honour. Also, Germany left alone to her heart’s desire can be quite cruel – the Brest-Litovsk treaty of 1917, imposed on Russia by Germany, was more harsh than the latter Versaille treaty was on Germany. This harsh treatment also reflected the fact how much Germany needs Russian resources, and the strategic significance of Russia for Germany. But Germany for Russia has only tactical significance
                    It is of course true, that USA is hated in Germany much more than Russia. This is the ancient hate, yet from WWI. The Germany has power in EU, but EU is now slowly imploding, too much German influence anyway. Again, Germany is too big for Europe. Tacitus discovered Arcanum imperii, but Arcanum Germaniae would be that no one needs Germany, and that Germany is always a source of problems, not solutions.
                    Germany has essentially two concepts of foreign policy, either alliance with Russia (Bismarck idea), or colonial expansion (Emperor Wilhelm II). That Germany has never seriously considered other options – like developing europe, and not creating colonial area there, is a testimony to the strength of German imperialism. Prussia-Germany has always excelled in the power politics, building its own unification on pushing out Austria from its influnce zone. But it was Austria that made possible the German-Russian alliance. You also had forgotten that Russia now is different Russia than the agrar country of Romanov dynasty. The current EU and attempted UN German spread is just covert Wilhelminian option.
                    I think you may be German becuase of your german Weltaanschaung, like in specifically German cult of power/harshness („Germany has shown that can be kind of tough but in a way fair”)., have limitless faith in German industry (‘NordstrramII is being bridgeheaded into Europe basically only by muscle strengthening of the German industrial lobby. No one dare speaks or acts against them. Even nato and the maga team couldn’t undo it.’) and the native way you used word Gestalt.
                    I lived in this country and germany from inside is worse than from outside.
                    The only way to prosper for Germany is to downsize her imperial industry (here both Morgenthau & Stalin were right), stop playing the great game (which is driven, again, by its industry), and start taking into account the needs of other European nations. Germany should stay as it once was , das Land der Dichter und Denker (country of poets and thinkers).
                    The question that Germans must ask themselves: temporary profits for its industry for the price of subjugation of the rest Europe , or a long-term true conciliation and cooperation with the rest of Europe for the price of downsizing industry. The current Gestalt of europe, so profitable for Germany, is not sustainable, and is dangerous for europe. The hidden arcanum imperii in this case is that no one needs Germany. This is why Germany loves to hide under the cover of human righst and progress and EU and globalism, trying to reshape its expansion needs as universal rigths. Think for yourself: since German unfication in 1871, was isolationism ever discussed in Germany? Never, in strong identification to countries like England (Little England), or US Isolationism. German identity is imperial per se. You hear abour BREXIT, GREXIT, POLEXIT etc, but you never ever hear about GERXIT, since it is unfathomble – everybody understands that Germany IS EU.
                    As for the might of German industry, wasn’t it Volkswagen that was hit by emission scandal?
                    As for Schröder, he is just this kind of easily impressed, narrow-minded German type Nicolai Gogol talked about. There is this story that he was chosen by Russians to head NordStream because he was indeed impressed by empty lanes on the way to Kremlin during one of his journeys through Moscow with Putin. This in a country where you have jokes of a kind ‘Misha, why did you bought a new Mercedes, again? Because in the old one, the ashtrays are already full’. So much for the common Russo-German sould. Schröder is where he is because Russians know that they easily control him, not vice versa.

    2. Pharma is mostly a parasite, as is most of the medical profession, because they suppress real cures, like a more pre-agricultural diet and meal frequency, for profit!

      Excess fat is a significant underestimated burden because it has numerous nasty effects on health and vitality; it is extra weight to carry around, so causes more joint wear & tear, causes inflammation, causes endocrine disruption, and fat tissue competes for food in the blood with brain and brawn, thus premature fatigue.

      I suggest getting-to/maintaining a youthful body fat ratio fast, about 12% body fat for men, by regular fasting and eating one low/no carbohydrate meal per day when not fasting. Also try to only cook (no more than 140C) from base ingredients, so no processed foods, because unhelpful ingredients/additives/processing can be disguised/hidden in them. You should not just eat (part rare cooked) muscle meat, but also eat organs, offal and other tissue for balanced nutrition; this is far better and cheaper than most supplements, including Protein isolates, pure Amino acids and isolated vitamins.

      All plants contain natural pesticides, some at astonishing levels, because they don’t like being eaten, and cooking/fermenting can’t remove all of these (e.g. Oxalates and Soy Bean nasties), so eating much of them is unwise, and going Vegetarian/Vegan is insane, because Vegetarians/Vegans all eventually suffer malnutrition damage after their body reserves have finally been drained by lack of animal foods and plant pesticide attack.

      Ruminant (bacteria carnivore) farming is probably far better use of land and lower energy use than vegetable farming, because they can make quality food from grass and can be moved under their own power, with no need for pharma crap for fattening greed, or to disguise harmful grain/bean feed and crowding of food animals.
