How Addicts Can Learn To Find Peace – Part 2

What happens when our body and mind no longer act as one with our spirit? When the essence of our being begs us to stop, but everything screams for release? We are presented with a choice. We have the power to choose bearing the consequences of our actions…or we can give in to the worst of ourselves. That part, which enslaves itself willingly to escape the burden of freedom.

Nobody can be free in every aspect of their lives. We can’t exist in an absolute state as we are. However, if we can bide our time, we gradually free ourselves from the self-imposed constructs that cause us suffering. One by one. It would take lifetimes, but we could do it. Still, the more issues, we deal with, the more keep cropping up. We think we are solving the problem but we are merely managing the symptoms of the root cause. Addiction is just another symptom of a larger issue. We are all dependent on something. Whether we need nicotine pumping through our veins or can’t function without coffee in the morning doesn’t matter. It’s all the same and here’s why:

We live in an interdependent universe. That implies we can never be entirely self-sufficient and thus can never truly be free from each other, the world or ourselves. So how do we cope? Denial? Brandy? Any form of distraction after the other will do…Yet, what we need is total anarchy. A state, in which we seize the right to govern ourselves. Until then, we are predestined to fight the urge until we no longer can and go down swinging…Either way, we won’t come out of this fight the same as we entered.

When we use, even if we have taken too much, we dont stop, because it has not hit us deep enough instantly. We cannot feel it. We lack the patience to wait…or perhaps we prefer oblivion. Although we need to be kind to ourselves to be free from whatever shit that plagues us, it doesn’t help. The lines of kindness becomes blurred when we provide help for others. We mistake temporary relief for permanent salvation. Our inner sweetheart doesn’t fix the mess, we have made, but the agressive assertiveness of a newborn bitch might… Nonetheless, there’s a darkness in giving into our impulses that provides the illusion of freedom…of the transient peace that we are so often denied. Sometimes, I wondered how I ever had the strength to resist…and then I think of the one thing that changed my life for the better and I find the courage to continue abstaining. Then, there’s that point in recovery, where we have to face the relative truth of our lives, even if it kills us…where I’m reminded of what I am…what I’ll always be…and that’s when I fail. I’m not ashamed to admit to it. It’s a learning curb, I havent been able to grasp just yet. After some inner disagreements, I always give in to it. All that seems to matter is he feeling of when it hits you and quiets everything inside, you are so desperate keep down, because you can’t change or accept it. Unconsciously, I would pay good money to bet, we are aiming for utter self-destruction. BUT, this is no permanent solution. Energy is neither created nor destroyed. Nothing truly dies…So, we are trapped forevermore, until we free ourselves.

When we work the kinda job or live the kind of life, which doesn’t allow for a normal lifestyle, what do functioning addicts do? If all we manage as a meal is a bite or two before we rush off to rectify the next emergency, it can bring us a level of peace. The peace that comes from letting go temporarily. No matter how much we love what we do. When our work is our life, if nothing can give us the same types of satisfaction, there are more restorative kinds… We cannot expect find absolute peace through relative means. What we can anticipate, however, is the resurgence of buried needs until they’re fulfilled, unless we deal with them or overcome them. The only mechanism to bypass this involves unconventional options.

It should be noted, women experience the process differently compared to men. The primary purose of more masculine qualities is short-term defence for long-term protection, whereas a womans is short- and long-term preservation. The methods used are applied very differently and in dissimilar circumstances [i.e. there are set biological genders but any person can channel more or less masculine/feminine energy and thus fall into either category due to to epigenetic predispositions].

In truth, we are far more than our preconceptions, but they make who we think we are. When at the core, all it takes is the real us. Even if we think our own efforts aren’t enough. Sometimes ‘enough’ is what we can bring ourselves to do. After the life I have led, I didn’t believe there was anything more significant to me than shielding myself the world, the system, an inner darkness…in the pursuit of something greater…Perhaps, there isn’t anything but the depraved purity of experience. Perhaps, there is. Only time will tell, but for now, is definitely nothing more important than the fight for stability through clarity.

To All Who Dare Defend Their Freedom – Fucking Go For It

Imagine a world, in which self-defence is a criminal act that is punished more severely than a felony. Imagine a world, in which the life-quality of an elite minority takes precedence over the lives of an enire world population. Imagine a world, in which subjugation is of higher importance than profit…

If you can envision all of the above simultaneously, then you’ll come pretty close to seeing our world as it is, not how we would like it to be. Yet, even at the lowest point of existence, there will always be those that strive to remedy such injustices. To those who dare, this current situation is but a challenge to be solved creatively…However, when these creative solutions share the same consequences, where do we draw the legal line?

If the mere expression of our thoughts is an act punishable by law, then what will happen to our right to free speech? What will happen to our way of thinking?

Whose freedom are we protecting by remaining silent? Certainly not our own, not even the freedom of those attempting to suppress ours.

In the words of George Orwell, “if liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” And he was right…but what when we have entered a world, in which expressing what we think or how we feel makes us a liability?Regardless of gender or race…that is always the case. From an early age, we are conditioned to only share what is socially accepted, but is that a way to live?

Your life is your life, it is nobody elses, So don’t allow yourself to be dominated by others. Don’t allow your actions to be dictated to by others, nor the regret you feel for having done so. It is a betrayal to yourself, which will prevent you from fulfilling you maximum potential. If you allow yourself to be dictated to by…perhaps your parents, your society, your education system, your politicians, your priests, whosoever they are…if you allow yourself to be dominated by others you will miss the best things in life. As Osho remarked, “domination comes from outside and life is within you.” The two may only meet when the external becomes non-externalised, which in turn means they cancel each other out.

There are two types of people: the obedient and the rebellious. One is a ready to take orders, retreat and/or surrender when things get tough. They have yet to discover their independent spirit. Howeve, they cannot do so until they are able to trust their own being. Unfortunately, the people make up the greater part of the world. They are the masses. The other is a small minority who reject society as well as its values. They think they are rebellious, but they primarily react to the way society dominates them. Rebellion becomes a means to gain back a modicum of control after it has been lost…unless it consists of purely selfless acts.

Whicheve type you are, follow your dream. Ask yourself ‘What do you really want to do?” But be aware you might be scared to admit what you really want to yourself. Unconsciously you may fear that you won’t be able to control your desire once you’ve admitted to it. In fact, it can cause real physical and mental illness if we continue to repress what we know deep down…it will come up eventually anyway. So, by acknowledging what we really want and pursue it, we may end up changing our current job, relationship, position in society, or whatever, but we will be
gaining the freedom to pursue what truly motivates and satisfies us. Remember that success is having a fixed goal but varying means on how to achieve it.

“If at first you don’t succeed,

Don’t try it again.

It didn’t work the first time!

Try something different!”

Changing the way you think can help you embrace a newly found freedom. If you think about life in terms of deprivation and suffering. You’ll never find enjoyment in personal growth, and most likely will soon give up on your endeavors. On the other hand, a person who thinks of life as a form of expression of their freedom will welcome opportunities to expand the consciousness of all people.
When facing temptations and fighting hard to not let them control you, remember that through letting
go of them, you aren’t losing anything substantial. You are simply taking the libery to be a master of your thoughts and emotions, which is ultimately worth more than any temporary gratification, of which you’re depriving yourself.

The Personality Types of Political Persuasion

Seduction in any form is a psychological process that transcends gender, except in a few key areas where each gender has its own weakness. The male is traditionally more susceptible to appearances, where his carnal interests are concerned, but the primary sense that he interprets reality with plays large role in his closer relationships. Hence, women who can concoct the right physical appearance appeal to large numbers of men, but don’t succeed as much in the political area as in the business world. Conversely, the weakness of the female gender itself is language. The right words must be spoken at the right moment in order to give the desired impression to her audience. Though, the majority will not be drawn to a male speaker, who is the same height or shorter.

Personality Types of Leaders

No matter, where in the world we find ourselves, we are always confronted by the same various categories of leaders. While we have Stalin, Hilter and Mussolini on one side, we have Churchill, Sissi and Lincon on the other. Our state, religious and banking systems have become the central pillars of control, which govern our society at almost every step…and who would not be drawn to holding such power, am I right?

Unfortunately, the fittest to lead often do not wish to, as those drawn to power will do anything to climb the social ladder. When this power thrust upon suitable people, such as Sissi of Bayern, they use it for the betterment of the country as well as its allegiances. In case of Sissi, her marriage to King Franz was an unhappy coincidence for the Queen Mother, which nearly led to the breakdown of Austro-Hungarian relations, further rebellion or even war. Despite her repeated attempts to sow discord between the two nations, Sissi made every possible effort to rectify them. Her desire to free the Hungarian people with the support of the leader of the rebels, Julian Andrej, was not a popular choice for the old monarchs. Yet, her charm was so intense, Austria was not the only country to embrace her ascension with great joy. The Hungarian people fell in love with her during her struggle against its oppressors and anointed her empress. Her unwillingness to bow down to social etiquette may have endeared her to the average person around the world, but caused problems in her marriage…especially after the Queen Mother removed her first-born from her care with the permission of the King, which was the standard protocol for royals, she fought for the right to raise her own child and won.

The Rakish Leader

An ideal leader combines riotous living with intellectual pursuits, designed to change society for the better. They place the will of the people before their personal desires, regardless of the sacrifice. However, this personality type of the aristocratic rake also has its counterpart. Whereas one uses his power to sway a captive audience in the attempt to improve their lives, the other uses it for his own ends. Both possess the ability to let themselves go in order to enchant people in their own way. Both aim to draw their target(s) into the kind of moment in which past and future lose meaning. To do so, they must both be able to abandon themselves in the moment to become one with those they wish to persuade.

Their success lies in the unconscious content that they bring to the surface. They appeal to the fantasy of the individual in a large crowd with cunning. They plan what specific fantasies, they wish to appeal to. They calculate what they would have to persuade people in a particular direction. However, they take great caution to mask their underlying motivations. Merely the scent of unsavory intentions makes an audience grow defensive, thereby lowering their chance of success.

The more ardent leaders solve this dilemma in the most artful
manners. They must think harder to find a way around whatever the obstacle is. It is exhausting work. However, by nature, such a leader has the advantage of an uncontrollable passion. When they pursues a goal, their strong emotions persuade as much as inspire. As a result, people support them, even despite themselves. When they play on emotions, they are so convincing that they will face any obstacle for the mere sake of pesuasion. After all, their followers would not expect to feel secure in desperate times. Even when the public is aware of their immoral past, there is nothing more attractive than a reformed sinner. It lulls them into a false sense of security, in which they believe to know their weaknesses. It makes them more relatable…and as such they inspire no fear. In the absence of doing so, their intense desire for a specific kind of change has a distracting power.

When they play on intellect, their efforts are often more sophisticated. They use attention less as a weapon to captivate but to enlighten. They inspire a level of confidence that leaves no room for doubt. They show no hesitation and abandon all restraint.

The Dandy Leader

Most of us feel trapped within the limited roles that the world expects us to play. We are instantly attracted to those who are not…Those who move through the world more fluidly, more ambiguously than we do. In other words, we admire who create their own persona. They excite us because they cannot be labelled. Their air of freedom is one we want for ourselves. They play with masculinity and femininity in an androgynous fashion.

This type has a strong personality with a tendency to unbury the hidden wants of their audience…and what is most seductive is often what is most repressed. They approach such forbidden content in the minds of their followers gradually with a level of playfulness. They act as a magnet for people’s dark, unrealized yearnings.

Since the 1920s, women were beginning to play with a newly found freedom. Instead of waiting for change, they wanted to be able to initiate it. For wives, this time also marked a change in the way they view gender roles as well as the family unit. However, their rise to political power often came at the cost of motherhood. The average woman enjoyed more control in initiating intimate encounters, but they still wanted the man to end up sweeping them off their feet.

Many of us today imagine that freedom has progressed in recent years. Everything has changed for the better. This is mostly an illusion. A reading of history reveals periods of freedom almost in glorious excess of what we are currently experiencing. Gender roles are certainly changing, but they have changed before. Society is in a state of constant flux, but there is something that hasnt changed. The vast majority of people conform to whatever is normal for the age. They play the role allotted to them. Conformity is a constant force because humans are social creatures who are always imitating one another.

At certain points in history it may be fashionable to be different and rebellious, but if a lot of people are adopting this role, there is nothing different or rebellious about it. Such widespred anarchy would either create a dystopian or utopian society.
Leaders rarely complain about most people’s slavish conformity, however, for it offers untold possibilities of power and seduction to those who are up for a few risks.

Since most of us are secretly oppressed by our lack of freedom, we are drawn to those who are more fluid and flaunt their difference. As alphas, groups tend to form around them and wildly imitate their style. In ideal cases, they are different in ways, which are both striking and aesthetic, never vulgar. They poke fun at current trends, while carving their own path. Not to mention, they are supremely uninterested in what anyone else is doing. Most people are so insecure, they wonder what these outsiders are up to. Potential followers slowly come to admire or imitate them, simply because they express themselves with total confidence. More importantly, they are subtle in all their attempts to persuade. They never try too hard for attention, but wait until it comes to them. Moreover, what distinguishes them from the norm is equally as subtle, expressed in little touches to highlight their disdain for convention.

The Naturally Persuasive Leader

Naturals are people who somehow avoided getting certain childish traits drummed out of them by adult experience. These people can be as powerfully persuasive as any child, as it seems uncanny at first glance that they have preserved such marvelous qualities. The spirit, they have retained, while so many others have not. However, this youthfulness is not something beyond their control. They learn the value of retaining a particular qualities to get what they want early on…and the seductive power it contains. Over years, they build upon those traits, they managed to preserve. To do this successfully, they have to learn to be witty to a degree without self-consciouss, since there is nothing less natural than seeming hesitant.

As people are we much more forgiving of those who go all the way, though they seem uncontrollably foolish, than the halfhearted adult with a childish streak. In a position of leadership, a touch of innocence can help lower defenses. For example, like when a con man plays dumb to make the other person trust him and feel superior. This kind of feigned naturalness has countless applications in daily life, where nothing is more dangerous than looking smarter than the next person. Conversely, in politics, the perfect way to disguise ones cleverness means the opponent is perhaps a better choice, unless the trap has already been set for the opposition to reveal their ignorance. In the case of Jess Phillip latest stand in British parliament, for instance, she demonstrated if you are uncontrollably childish and cannot turn it off, you run the risk of seeming pathetic, earning not sympathy but pity or disgust from your listeners.

On a related note, these natural traits evolve with age. Childlike qualities work best in one who is still young enough for them to seem natural. They are much harder for an older person to pull off. The Duke of Buckingham, who seduced everyone in the English court in the 1620s (including the homosexual King James I himself), was wondrously childish. His behaviour, however, became obnoxious and off-putting as he grew older. Worse, he eventually made enough enemies that he ended up being murdered. As people age, their natural qualities should suggest more the child’s open spirit, less an innocence that will no longer convince anyone.

The Coquette Leader

The ability to delay satisfaction is the ultimate art of seduction. This tactic can also be applied in the annals of political persuasion, but with less public appreciation than the others.

Coquettes are the grand masters of the back-and-forth movement between hope and frustration. They bait with the promise of reward [the hope of positive change], which will prove elusive. Yet, this only makes their followers pursue them the more to make the desired change happen or point out their flakishness. Their in-built narcissism may prove devilishly attractive in the dating world, but it loses its charm when they assume a leadership role. Their strategy is never to offer what their followers desire the most, yet always make it appear as though they might. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, like they say.

They tend to play with volatile emotions. Every time the pendulum swings, love shifts to hate, so they must orchestrate everything carefully. Their absences cannot be too long, their bouts of anger must be quickly followed by smiles. They keep their victims emotionally entrapped for a long time. Although the longer this goes on, the more tiresome this dynamic begins to prove tiresome.

The Charmer

These consummate manipulators mask their cleverness by creating an atmosphere of trust. Their method is too simple. They just deflect attention from themselves and focus it on their target. They understand their spirit, feel their pain, adapt to their moods. They make others feel better about themselves. As a rule, they do not argue, fight, complain or pester, unless pushed beyond the point. The more they listen to concerns and feign empathy, they foster a state of dependency while their power grows. To be precise, they aim at peoples primary weaknesses, their vanity and self-esteem. Their way to attain power is to fulfill the expectations of their audience, such as the focused attention, the boosted self-esteem, the needed support, the understanding (real or illusory), but subtract any meaningful change.

However, in some lurks the capacity for true leadership beneath the surface. They may give people something that holds their attention or fascinates them. A decent leader will capture people’s attention without lowering their powers of reason, but heighten them. A manipulative leader will strike at the things their audience has the least control over, like ego, vanity and self-esteem. The strategy can never be obvious. Subtlety is once again the Charmers greatest asset. If the target is to be kept from seeing through the their efforts or growing suspicious, maybe even tiring of excessive attention. The Charmer is like a beam of light that doesn’t play directly on a target but throws a pleasantly diffused glow over it. They fade into the background, as listen and observe. They let others do the talking and thereby revealing themselves in the process. As they find out more, especially their strengths or more importantly their weaknesses, they tailor their attention to specific wants, needs and insecurities. By adapting to them, they empathise with their woes, validating their sense of self-worth.

On a mass level, they make gestures of self-sacrifice (no matter how fake) to show the public that they share their pain and are working in their interest. They listen to complaints, but primarily distract from the problems instead of solving them.
In politics, they provide illusion and myth rather than reality. Instead of asking people to sacrifice for the greater good, they talk of grand moral issues. An appeal that makes people feel good will translate into following, votes and power.

In essence, they superficially turn antagonism into harmony. They know how to smooth out conflict wigout ever having to dirty their hands at solving it. Yet, they are often the first retreat in the face of aggression and relinquish small victories that they can turn sour through their influence. Yielding or indulgence can only charm the fight out of potential enemies for a limited time. They never criticize people overtly to avoid making people insecure and resistant to change. So, they plant ideas, insinuate suggestions etc., while they amass power without people noticing. They lull their audience into ease. The more relaxed they become, the easier it is to bend them to their will. Some borrow an old NLP technique, know as mirroring. They adapt to their moods, posture as well as general body language. People are prone to narcissism, so they are drawn to those most similar to themselves. Those who share their values, tastes, opinions etc. This works particularly well if they are an outsider by showing that they share the values of their adopted group or country, which is also an old war custom.

The true masters this art show deep calm in the face of adversity. Their unruffled exterior puts people at ease. They seem patient, as if waiting for destiny to deal them a better card. If done subtly, their ability to enhance the lives of others will be devilishly clever. Their social skills prove important here by creating a wide network of allies that’ll give them the power to link people up with each other, which will make them feel that by knowing you they can make their lives easier. This is something no one can resist. Follow-through is key though. So many people will charm by promising a person great things, but do not follow through. Anyone can make a promise. What sets a real charmer apart is following up their promises with definite actions.

Our personalities are often molded by how we are treated. When a parent or spouse is defensive or argumentative in dealing with us, we tend to respond the same way. We respond in kind…But, never mistake peoples exterior characteristics for reality, for the character we show on the surface is merely a reflection of the people with whom they have been most in contact, or a front disguising its own opposite. Our identity is the the result of the combined effort of everyone we have ever known.
A rough exterior may hide a person dying for warmth…a repressed, sober-looking type may actually be struggling to conceal uncontrollable emotions. That is the key to charm, feeding what has been repressed or denied.
We often recognize Charmers as such. We sense their innate cleverness and in so doing we fall under their spell. The feeling that they provide is so rare as to be worth the price we pay…ot so it seems. The world is full of self-absorbed people. In their presence, we know that everything in our relationship with them is directed toward them (their insecurities, their neediness, their hunger for attention etc.). This reinforces our own egocentric tendencies, so we protectively tense up. It is a syndrome that only makes us the more susceptible to the charm of the those who don’t. First, they don’t talk much about themselves, which heightens their mystery and disguises their limitations. Second, they seem to be attentive and their interest is so delightfully focused that we relax and open up. Last but not least, Charmers are pleasant to be around. Their self-effacing attentiveness makes them a pleasure to be around…However, only from afar or for a limited time. Nobody can maintain such a persona indefinitely. No matter how addicted we might become to someones devilish charm, eventually this attraction fades as a result of the inevitable. It is impossible to contain all kinds of negative emotions forever.
Conversely, in a social setting, they can maintain their facade indefinitely, when done correctly. People tire of beauty without social grace, but they never tire of having their self-worth validated. The difficulty of this exercise is to deal with high maintenance people as though it takes no effort. Of course, there will always be difficult people (for instance, the chronically insecure, the hopelessly stubborn, the hysterical complainers). The ability to lower the defences caused by these problems becomes essential for them. They prove an invaluable skilln but they have to be careful. If they are too passive, people will run all over them and take advantage. If too assertive, they will highlight their unattractive qualities even more. However, when a level of balance is maintained, they are outwardly gracious. Inwardly,they calculate and wait…as their strategy is temporary surrender. When the time comes, and it inevitably will, the tables will turn. The targets emotions will land them in trouble eventually, allowing superiority to be regained.

The Charismatic

Today, anyone who has presence, attracts attention. They have an unusual confidence. They express a vision. We may not realize it, but in their presence we have a kind of spiritual experience. We believe in these people, without having any rational evidence for doing so. To them, it comes completely naturally, as if it came from something mysteriously beyond their control.

In our rational, disenchanting world, people crave otherworldly experience, particularly on a shared level. Any sign of charisma plays into this innate desire to believe in something beyond the physical…and there is nothing more seductive than giving people something to believe in and follow. Such leaders typically pick a cause, an ideal, a vision and show that they will not sway from their goal. From that moment on, as long as people believe they have a plan, that they know where they are going, they will follow instinctively. The direction does not even matter. As long as they project confidence that they either believe or make others believe comes from something real.

Since most people hesitate before taking any bold action (even when action is what is required), single-minded focus to act tends to draw attention. People believe in them through the simple force of their character.

If they are too passive, people will run all over them and take advantage. If too assertive, they will highlight their unattractive qualities even more. However, when a level of balance is maintained, they are outwardly gracious.

Seduction and charm are the most effective counterweapons. Outwardly, be gracious. Adapt to their every mood. Enter their spirit. Inwardly, calculate and wait: your surrender is a strategy, not a way of life. When the time comes, and it inevitably will, the tables will turn. Their aggression will land them in trouble, and that will put you in a position to rescue them, regaining superiority. (You could also decide that you had had enough, and consign them to oblivion.) Your charm has prevented them from foreseeing this or growing suspicious. A whole revolution can be enacted without a single act of violence, simply by waiting for the apple to ripen and fall.

Today, anyone who has presence, who attracts attention when he or she enters a room, is said to possess charisma. But even these less-exalted types reveal a trace of the quality suggested by the word’s original meaning. Their charisma is mysterious and inexplicable, never obvious. They have an unusual confidence. They have a gift—often a smoothness with language-that makes them stand out from the crowd. They express a vision. We may not realize it, but in their presence we have a kind of religious experience: we believe in these people, without having any rational evidence for doing so. When trying to Concoct an effect of charisma, never forget the religious source of its power. You must radiate an inward quality that has a saintly or spiritual edge to it. Your eyes must glow with the fire of a prophet. Your charisma must seem natural, as if it came from something mysteriously beyond your control, a gift of the gods. In our rational, disenchanted world, people crave a religious experience, particularly on a group level. Any sign of charisma plays to this desire to believe in something. And there is nothing more seductive than giving people something to believe in and follow.

Charisma must seem mystical, but that does not mean you cannot learn certain tricks that will enhance the charisma you already possess, or will give you the outward appearance of it. The following are basic qualities that will help create the illusion of charisma:

Such leaders typically pick a cause, an ideal, a vision and show that they will not sway from their goal. From that moment on, as long as people believe they have a plan, that they know where they are going, they will follow instinctively. The direction does not even matter. As long as they project confidence that they either believe or make others believe comes from something real.

Since most people hesitate before taking any bold action (even when action is what is required), single-minded focus to act tends to draw attention. People believe in them through the simple force of their character.

When Franklin Delano Roosevelt came to power amidst the Depression, much of the public had little faith he could turn things around. But in his first few months in office he displayed such confidence, such decisiveness and clarity in dealing with the country’s many problems, that the public began to see him as their savior, someone with intense charisma.

Since most people are predictable, the effect of these contradictions is devastatingly charismatic. They make you hard to fathom, add richness to your character, make people talk about you. It is often better to reveal your contradictions slowly and subtly—if you throw them out one on top of the other, people may think you have an erratic personality. Show your mysteriousness gradually and word will spread. You must also keep people at arm’s length, to keep them from figuring you out. Another aspect of mystery is a hint of the uncanny. The appearance of prophetic or psychic gifts will add to your aura. Predict things authoritatively and people will often imagine that what you have said has come true.

Most people are predictable. Most of us must compromise constantly to survive, but some do not. Some live out their ideals without caring about the consequences. Politicians such as George Washington and Lenin won impressive reputations by living simply, despite their power. They matched their political values to their personal lives. Both men were virtually deified after they died. Albert Einstein too had a charismatic aura…childlike, unwilling to compromise and seemingly lost in his own world. The key to their charismatic personality is that they already had deeply held values, before they amassed power. Although a few power-hungry individuals have attempted to pretend to hold tightly onto certain values, they cannot fake this part for long. We have seen this with countless left-wing comedians and other celebrities, who demonise Brexit for the sake of media attention, but badmouth remainers in their dressing rooms. They do not live what they believe, therefore once the truth reveals itself…no amount of charismatic charm may save their reputation.

The level of charisma depends as much on appearance as on eloquence. Unless they attempt to make a visual statement, words are the quickest way to create emotional disturbance. They can incite any emotion without referring to anything real through simple association. However, it helps if the speaker is as as caught up in the words, as the listeners are. For example, when Winston Churchill anticipated the fall of France, he held the speech “We shall fight them on the beaches”. In actuality, it was not transmitted live over the radio and it would be decades before the recording would aired. He did, however, walk into the house of commons qnd conducted a speech that were so emotionally powerful as to determine several key moments in the war.

To pull off this type of eloquence, many people use catchwords, slogans, rhythmic repetitions, phrases for the audience to repeat. Most importantly, it customised to the audience to be easily remembered.

It should be noted here that every country has its own preferences when it comes down to the style of delivery. For instance, Churchill was a slow, authoritative speaker, whereas Hitler was far more passionate.
Both radiated self-assurance, but only Churchill impressed with his calm, reserved behaviour given the situation.

Most people are repressed, and have little access to their unconscious. This is a problem that creates opportunities for those, who can encourage others to project their secret fantasies and longings onto them. Usually they initiate the process with a display of genuine disinhibition and spontaneity. Even a hint of such qualities will make people think they more powerful than they truly are.

3 Misconceptions About Happiness

Just as water runs downhill, the human heart also tends to revert to its basest instincts…

Misconception #1: Happiness is Random

This is still a very common myth about happiness and it is completely plausible to assume that happiness has no rules. For all we know, it could come or go just like the wind.
Why? Simply because happiness is complicated, most people don’t know what triggers it. If you ask someone (try it and you will see) what happiness is they might answer with a stream of buzz phrases [such as health, money, friends, family, job security etc.] Are they right? Well, yes and no.
In general, all of these things have the potential to increase how content we feel, but only if we know how to make gratitude a larger part of our lives. For instance, it can teach us how we can enhance our life through the little things.
While happiness seems like a complicated concept, it appears to be as random as roulette. Although, we know, roulette is far from random, we continue to believe that such a thing as ‘randomness’ actually exists…Truth be told, we simply do not know all the parameters of roulette, just as we do not know the exact ‘mechanisms of happiness’. Like with roulette, if we knew all parameters, we could predict the winning number with almost every turn. Psychologists may claim that we have not discovered all the pillars of happiness yet, but even if this statement was not false, we would still know enough about happiness to know that we can influence our emotional state to make our lives more fulfilling.

Misconception #2: Happiness is Either Given To You or Not

As you may know, true happiness is unconditional. This means that it does not abide by the conditional factors, upon which we base our moods, lives, even our very identity. Therefore, half of our conditional happiness is determined by our genes, so [to some extent] happiness is given. However, the other half of conditional happiness is affected by our lifestyle [i.e. what we do on a daily basis]. Ultimately, how happy we are on a conditional level is our responsibility. Conversely, if we do not understand how happiness works, then it will seem as though happiness is given to some more freely, whereas others cannot find any at all. Once we know that conditional happiness is a byproduct of other things, which are equally as conditional, we may grasp the concept of unconditional happiness. Prior to the ebb and flow of real life, happiness is neither given nor self-made: It is an infinite state of being that co-exists eternally with our finite existence. Anyway, since few can imagine being truly happy in the complete absence of anything physical, we must first focus on the part of our happiness that we feel we have control over [however imaginary or non-externalised said control may be].

Misconception #3: I’ll be happy when I achieve…

Have you ever thought that if you only would achieve X or Y, you will be happy for the rest of your life?
I did and I jumped from one achievement to another always expecting to find happiness eventually. Not only does it not work, it is the nature of the mind that drives us to such behaviour. Sure, we are content for a short time after achieving a goal, but the level of happiness drops soon after [accompanied by feelings of frustration].
It is grim, yet sobering realisation that happiness does not work in that way. We might hope our next successful endeavour or any other single event will bring sustaining happiness, but it is condemned to end in disillusionment and disappointment. Relying on a single event to make us happy permanently is the same as eating a large meal with the expectation to never be hungry again. We are all morons, falling for the same con repeatedly, myself included. However, the solution is hiding in plain sight…Just as we need to nourish our bodies regularly, we need to foster happiness with the same regularity. Imagine happiness as a puzzle, which requires multiple different pieces to form the whole picture. If we miss out some or mistakenly place them in the wrong field, a part of the whole picture will need to be reassembled and put together the right way…

Die zunehmende Verblödung des Menschen

ANDERSmensch

Wer sich bereits in einem Zustand wachen Bewusstseins befindet, dem wird in den letzten zehn Jahren folgendes Phänomen nicht verborgen geblieben sein: Der Großteil der Menschheit verblödet zunehmend.

– Woran liegt das?

Zum Einen liegt es wohl an dem irreführenden Glauben an Bildung. Menschen mit Schulbildung halten sich für intelligent, obwohl meistens das Gegenteil der Fall ist. Bildung zerstört einen wesentlichen Teil der ursprünglichen, natürlichen Intelligenz und Beobachtungsgabe des Menschen. Der Großteil dessen, was ein Kind in der Schule lernen muss, basiert auf Annahmen, Mutmaßungen, Pseudofakten und Lügen. Man sagt diesem Kind zum Beispiel, die Erde sei rund, die Geschichte der Evolution sei so oder so verlaufen, der Erdkern bestünde aus flüssigem Eisen, auf der Venus herrschten diese oder jene Bedingungen, man müsse besser, schneller, stärker, härter und schlauer sein als andere, um zu überleben, und das Kind muss all das glauben, weil es keine Möglichkeit hat, diese Aussagen zu…

Top 10 Worst Nations on Earth for Gender Equality are All Islamic

Michael A. Sherlock (Author)

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Index (2016), the 10 worst countries for gender equality are all Muslim-majority countries.  This should come as no surprise to anyone who has undertaken even an ounce of research into the core doctrines and common traditions associated with this extremely patriarchal religion.  Whilst Islam is not a monolith and many variations exist with regards to beliefs, practices, degrees of adherence, etc., it is noteworthy that those societies which treat their women the worst all zealously adhere to a religion that sees women as inherently inferior to men.

The Worst 10 Nations on Earth

  1. Yemen
  2. Pakistan
  3. Syria
  4. Saudi Arabia
  5. Chad
  6. Iran
  7. Mali
  8. Morocco

Gender Inequality in the Central Pillar of Islam

As per the Qur’an, which is the central pillar of Islam, women are inferior to men in almost every conceivable way. The Qur’an is explicit with regards…

8 Ideas Bigger Than Religion

What is religion, but an idea? A concept that has cosmic transformative potential… However, any idea can be turned in on itself to become the very thing that it stands against. When we speak of religion, we do not speak of our way of being. We mean how devoted we are to an imaginary deity in the sky that we would either run from screaming or pay hard cash to abduct us. In other words, we neglect the very foundation of religion that consists of ideas, which are much bigger than any organised religious system. Continue reading

Islamopathy

ECAW's blog

praying-in-street

It has been announced that the next edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders will include a new condition, Islamopathy, which displays elements both of sociopathy and of cult groups (1).

Classified as a personality disorder, Islamopathy is characterized by enduring antisocial behavior towards outgroups, diminished empathy and remorse, and disinhibited behavior, often accompanied by free floating rage.

The following cultic style behaviours are also identified in the disorder:

1. Excessively zealous commitment to the leader (Mohammed, a 7th century warlord) and his belief system/ideology.

2. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.

3. The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, what types of clothes to wear, who to marry, how to discipline children, which foot to enter the toilet with and so forth).

4. An elitist outlook, claiming a special, exalted status for the group…

What You Should Know

imageOur dreams for the future should not be of greatness or wealth, but freedom: the ability to think, speak and act freely, as women…This is a free world, risen from the ashes of oppression, but we are a prisoner of our bodies and our gender-roles. We should not have to justify our actions to anyone but ourselves. Ultimately, it is us who has to live with the moral consequences. If we wish to devote our lives to a higher cause, such as the search for meaning, we should not do so because a deity demands it. We should only do so, when it is what our heart, mind and spirit asks of us. Anything else is not selfless devotion to a higher being. It is lip-service, self-deception or conformity to something we have never striven to understand. Faith should not be taken lightly, it is very personal business to all of us. Particularly, for those willing to sacrifice their lives in the fight for religious domination or freedom.

Hope For The Best, Expect The Worst

The prophet Mohammed rode into battle alongside his female lieutenant, whereas the present-day interpretation of Islam has made women prisoners in their own homes. It has made them tools of self-gratification for men from the moment they can crawl. It is not only despicable, it is highly dangerous, as to the mental health of their victims. They are creating ticking time-bombs in charge of raising future generations, which can only result in hich rates of violent crime and suicide.
Generation after generation has been subjected to psychological torment and has been beaten into sexual submission, as a blatant abuse of the religious authority of the state. In such a country, where there is no protection for women, their offsprings can never be of optimal psychological health, regardless of the gender. They are raised with extreme forms of Stockholm syndrome, after being beaten, sexually abused and coerced into religious worship. Every inch of their identity is stripped from them…Every basic requirement from the food they eat, the clothes they wear to what they say is controlled by the men in their lives. Now, is that a life, in which any of us can ever be at peace with the world or ourselves?

Sharia Defies Human Rights

Women have it hard enough in the West without the inference of religious laws being thrust upon those that are enslaved and oppressed by them. No country should be governed by laws that advocate gender biases, it only festers corruption and inequality. For those few women that survive, cold indifference becomes a state of being. Some ex-Muslims that I have spoken to live in fear of Islam. As apostates, Sharia laws means condemning them to death. It seems that men, women and children are becoming slightly more afraid with each day that Islamic Laws will create an Islamic State, where no justice can prevail.

There is a difference between being ‘islamophobic’ and being weary of the surge of migrants that are taking a hold of the West, so Educate Yourself. Do not believe what you read in the Newspaper, unless you can be 100% certain that is is not propaganda. Know your cultural history, read more books, trust your gut and see for yourself what is happening in your community.

Organised Religion has no room in state politics or in the administration of the law. Particularly, when it defies human rights and common sense. Since the abolishment of capital punishment, what use is there for religion in the court-room? Prayer cannot change the verdict of a judge. It cannot protect the guilty or shield the innocent, as much as sending a thought into the universe can alter the course of cause and effect. It is unethical to demand religious devotion and/or worship of a non-believer. We were all born with free will. We have the right to be free from religion. That does not mean we have to thrust our beliefs down everybody’s throats, but we can act in defence of our right to free expression.
In a world, where religious freedom is political and political expression is religious. It becomes obvious that they reversed the rules on us in an attempt to infiltrate. It’s psychological warfare 101 to turn the target nation in on itself to weaken its defences. Without the ability to defend itself, it is ready for the taking. (Particularly, if you’ve already taken the outer zones)

France: While the protests are still ongoing for at least the next month, the no-go zones appear to be expanding. Although the Erdogan, the Turkish PM, criticises the French for their way of handling the demonstrators, if the tables were turned, we would witness a press-blackout followed by a significant reduction in the population. Erdogan is demonstrating another tactic of political infiltration, using our own weapons religion, politics and law against us.
The only thing that can possibly win against this is war. The time when complete non-resistance or non-cooperation across Europe would have been effective has passed. Now, our options are limited by the number of people we can dedicate to the problem of violent crime in our streets. The more people support the political freedom of their country, the less violence will need to be applied to regain their policies and territories. The less people take action, the more brutal the measures have to be. When outnumbered against hordes of battle-trained war refugees with more reinforcements hiding in close proximity, the situation can become life-threatening in seconds.

Germany: With about 1.5M refugees, only about 446’000 have been granted asylum. Although the remainder have not left the country, Germany has not taken any action. With daily sexual assaults by 3-15+ economic migrants converging on a single woman, law enforcement is reluctant to pursue the matter for religious/political reasons. An asylum seeker does not commonly exhibit hostile tendencies or commit violent crimes in the country that has given him or her refuge. If their application is denied by the state, they may resort to petty theft to support themselves, but they do not rape and pillage whatever catches their attention at the time.
A good tactician plays with his target, as a cat would with a mouse. They feign weakness, in the form of poverty and immobility, until they suddenly pounce upon their target. Yet, economic migrants are not as skilled at covert warfare, which plays in our favour by altering us to the threat the moment it began. However, the instant Merkel announced her open-door policy, welcoming millions into the country, she opened the country to political invasion. Without the forced deportation of millions of economic migrants that have remained long after their legal right to stay expired, Germany will continue to suffer. As Merkel refuses to assist her people out a sense of false pride in her decision, she is a representative of the people…And in every country, people have the right to simply refuse public support. It is even our human right to refuse elected officials, if we feel our political freedoms are threatened or compromised. Merkel opened the front gates and invited in a Trojan horse that she is now refusing to acknowledge or even comment on. Her unwillingness to respond to negative feedback make her highly dangerous and perhaps unstable. Ironically, her decision has made Germany more powerful in the European Union, but it has sacrificed its people to achieve this and most likely the future of the EU.
Although only 250’000 people would be required to gather in Berlin to overwhelm authorities, there is consistent evidence that the retaliation against political resistance in the fight for political freedom would be more than just instantaneous.

Austria: An EU exit would be perhaps one of the most peaceful solutions. Having grown up in the area, we never needed border control, remember what that was like? When you could walk through the Alps without worrying about migrants, lurching in the bushes. Now, even locking the door or excellent security system cannot stop the high increase in burglaries, rapes and random violence. Only 50’000 protesters are required to overwhelm die Wiener Behörden in a unified movement for the rights of men and women alike to regain political control over their country.

Switzerland: In a recent attack in May 2016 at a Swiss border, caught on CCTV, a group of approx. 2″ migrants blocked the road. The car stopped, the driver and passenger exited vehicle and before they knew it another 15 migrants descended into them out of the woods nearby. When in doubt, always stay in your car, lock the doors and drive and dial the police, if necessary. In the footage, a car sped by and took some of the migrant off their feet (without visibly injuring any of them). However, the content quickly turns into a snuff film as they knock out the driver and group around the female passenger after giving her a bloody nose and take her trousers off…

Here’s what happened & what is yet to come:

image

As a female psychologist in a profession that’s pretty much a boys-club, I may be scarcely heard or acknowledged, but I’m afraid to say that I turn out to be right more often than I’m comfortable with. Some women enjoy the thrill of the “I told you so.”, I just find it adds animosity to an already tense, if not hostile situation. (Being right for women is like telling someone to move their shit on the stairs, before they stumble over it. Nobody cares when you say it but you can be guaranteed that there’s going to be a crash, bang and wallop in the near future)

Hinduism: 400 million Hindus were slain during Muslim invasion and occupation of India. Survivors were enslaved and impregnated or castrated. India’s population is said to have been around 600 million at the time of Muslim invasion. By the mid 1500’s, the Hindu population had been reduced to approx. 200 million. (The conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000 was followed by the annihilation of the Hindu population; the region is still called the Hindu Kush, i.e. “Hindu slaughter.”)

Mass Rapes: In April 2016, a group of male refugees, heading for Europe accidentally wound up across the border of Russia. They 40-50 of them charged into a night-club and began to seize the female staff and guests for their own twisted pleasure. Although it did not take long until Russian law enforcement intervened and administered their own brand of justice.

Public Beheadings: As tensions increase, they will undoubtedly attempt to make an example of public and/or religious figures. Lyle Zimmermann fell victim to this fear-tactic, when he was attacked a tube-station and almost publicly beheaded. This is just another example of how the verse of the sword is misused to target any religious organisation that they cannot infiltrate. This commonly accomplished by spreading fear and ridding them of their most beloved members.

HIV & Other STD’s: The surge of migrants and continued number of sexual assaults is likely to propagate many incurable sexually-transmitted conditions. Most commonly reported conditions reported in survivors are HIV and Hepatitis. Considering this inconceivable fate, survivors would be at a higher risk of suicide. Victim support in these cases is essential, but often neglected, but there is much that we can all do to provide a safe place for them to begin the healing process. (Although there’s nothing that can’t be treated with a bi-annual dose of 9-Liquid Ounces of cannabis in a country, where it is legal, these strands are most likely more invasive, but still originate from the same man-made strain. To flush and restart the system would necessitate an additional 1-2 liquid ounces per month. It is recommended to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and processed food in-between treatment, but pure blunts or hemp & cannabis joints have shown to aid recovery. It should be noted that every liquid ounce is comparably three times more than a solid ounce of freshly grown medicinal cannabis, so don’t underestimate the amount required for this endeavour. In this case, better too much than too little and sooner rather than later.)

Religious & Political Warfare: Over the previous centuries, Islam has destroyed a great deal of spiritual, academic culture. Entire Buddhist and Hindu temples that have existed since before the birth of Christ were eradicated or burnt to a cinder. From a Western perspective, there is no amount of resistance from a single individual that can combat the birth-rate of the migrant population. One against 50 only works, when you have an uzi with unlimited ammunition, a suicide-vest or (if you’re a woman) a cyanide pill. (Especially now since every good muslim should have at least 4 kids) Only political resistance from small groups or large crowds, which invariably devolve into violence, would make an impact.

Political Infiltration: All migrants require is humanitarian tolerance in a host country, and the political freedom of women is directly threatened. Women are snatched off the streets, impregnated and detained in no-go zones against their will. We often speak of racial bias but we only criticise and improve our own conduct. While their blatant disregard of the Western cultures as well as laws grows disguised as religion, we are too busy arguing over the finer points of morality. Our judicial systems are morally superior through the sheer fact that we do not prohibit women from leaving their homes unaccompanied. We do not allow child marriages and yet migrants are abducting more children from playgrounds. If they disappear, we cannot judge their ‘way of life’, which is inherently detrimental to women. The mere existence of Sharia Law in this world is a hate-crime against women. Dare I say, the mere existence of Islam, for their punishment of apostasy with death, is a crime against humanity and every freedom we hold dear.

Mosques Everywhere: A success for Islam would be to establish a mosque at every single street-corner in every single country. Countries, which embrace Islam, must allow Sharia law. By doing so, they weaken their stance on human rights, opening themselves even further to the possibility of being subjected to religious laws that did not originate from the country.

Mass Executions of Non-Believers: In Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, the United States and Europe, one does not need to look very far to see mass executions swept neatly under the carpet. A large amount of the no-go zones were acquired and expanded through harassment and violent crime. In London, Berlin, Sweden and Denmark, they are extending their grasp in the community by extorting shop-keepers. If they refuse to pay, they will vandalise the store and often grievously injure staff. These are all basic warfare tactics that mark the first stage of a religious and political invasion.

Brexit: Although this culture of violence has spread to the United Kingdom, it appears as if most of the illegal migrants that smuggled their way into England are too occupied by the EU referendum. Their vote and yours will determine, whether British culture will become history. Brexit would be only means to stop the inflow, while it is still manageable, but that does not end the economic warfare tactics of the EU. However, the more countries would leave the EU and cooperate to re-build than without a Brexit. It’ll take time to rebuild every fraction that the EU surgically sliced out of Britain, ranging from steel, the docks, import and export to the military. However, if the protests in France give the migrant population the advantage they seek, the entirety of Europe would feel the hostile presence that has taken ahold of their communities. As Hitler once said, all you need to do to control Europe is conquer France, yet England has always been the key piece. Without Britain, you have nothing, which explains the consistent surge of illegal migrants and repeated attempts to break through Calais. It is military strategy, rather than a benefit or healthcare scam. That and they are still trying to get back at us from last time, when they swore holy war against the British Empire (although most historians are asked by the EU to omit that part).

Point-Based Immigration: If the system survives the propaganda pumped out by mainstream media, and make it through to a trial run, it would certainly not collapse the global economy. Far from it, it would offer the British Isle the opportunity to re-build their infrastructure. To produce and manufacture, instead of import everything from EU. Especially since the product quality has been severely diminished, as the products are not able to face the harsh environmental conditions. For example, german-made propellers for wind-farms are not capable of withstanding a certain speed of winds, hence they continually break down due lower wind threshold. In simple terms, they overheat quickly and break due to deliberately poor craftsmanship. (This costs the taxpayer thousands every single time that maintenance is required. For a fraudulent scam, they’ve amassed vast sums from only that one product. One shudders to crunch the numbers of all EU-products with high incident report rates) However, much it has been requested by the public to switch back to British models, this issue could no longer be ignored after an EU exit. Other countries would benefit from the economic growth of Britain, as they have many times before. The world is only as strong as its weakest, most exploited countries. Although not as exploited as some countries, the EU is still attempting strategically crush Britain beyond the point of return.

Civil War: Brutality is the only means to justice in a society, in which there is no judicial system outside of religious law. A system, in which the people do not serve to protect each other…In which freedom of expression and sacredness of life are a faint memory of the past. With the press-blackouts, police orders to keep the migrant crisis quiet, repeated assaults and foiled terrorist attempts, it is only a matter of time, until the people do what they are good at…Fight for the most basic rights of all living beings. To protect themselves and the rights of women in future generations.

These times remind me of the reign of Cesar. As a form of entertainment for the masses, hordes of Caucasian slaves were led into the arena to face hordes of Middle-Eastern slaves. Only this time, for the entertainment of the elite, hordes of Middle-Eastern migrants surge to every corner of the globe. While we are on the brink of mass extinction, depopulation measures are still in full swing, as evident by the increase in fatalities as a result of disease, violent crime and protests across the world.
