    Merry Christmas? 

    In a world where liberal democracy is eroded and threatened daily, where fanatics are still striving to murder innocent people, where pointless, lucrative wars just go on and on and on, and where even genocide apparently remains an acceptable solution, it is hard to be merry this Christmas without suffering massive cognitive dissonance.

    The only way to get through it may just to be thankful for the end of another shitty year, and to look forward in hope and optimism to the future. Here’s to 2018 sucking less.

      Every year, I hope the new one will be better. But it keeps getting worse. Now my computer has gone dysfunctional on me. But do I give up? Nah! With the patience of Job, I managed to get this video here. I keep thinking this year will be “less sucky.” Maybe this will be the year that the people will wise up and rise up. Not holding my breath. Have a Merry Christmas anyway.

    Psychopath's Christmas message 

    In the wake of yet another terror attack on European soil, and the end of a rather crummy year for anyone framing themselves as any way liberal, progressive (or indeed as a decent human being), it’s easy to feel disheartened about the future, as though there is no hope. Well there is something you can do, and it’s easy.

    The Syrian civil war, which has so far claimed almost half a million lives has, after five years of brutal fighting, near enough come full circle this week, with President Assad’s forces retaking the rest of Aleppo that had been in rebel hands. What a tragic waste of life, and what a scandal that this has been allowed (made) to happen under our noses. That NATO and Russia have backed opposing sides and are at this stage fighting a proxy war against each other is no secret. The age of relative peace and prosperity some of us have enjoyed for the last few decades seems to be heading in a bloody change of direction.

    Certainly, soon-to-be President Trump’s tweets about bringing back nuclear weapons in a big way is enough to send even a fearless psychopath running to his duvet, as this is surely very bad news indeed for those of us who value peace.

    And then there’s ISIS. They, and terrorism in general, seem to sum up this era we’re living in rather well. They’re international, they appeal to the young and disenfranchised, they use social media as a powerful tool of propaganda, and they’re populist.

    The stereotypical westerner’s reaction, one of fear, a sense of helplessness and an increasingly paranoid and vicious popular feeling against Islam and Muslims, plays into ISIS hands very well. We also do those illiberal, authoritarian control freaks in governments a huge favour. In our fear, and our clamour for security at any cost, we risk handing over all the reins of power to maniacs who will bring nothing but misery. Oh wait, that should have been last year’s Christmas warning, because in America at least, that horse has already bolted…

    But let’s focus on terrorism. The thing about terrorism, what makes it such an effective method of war and why it will probably never be beaten by force, is an individual terrorist only has to ‘get it right’ once. Security forces have to get it right every single time. If they slip up, like they did in Berlin this week, people die.

    Against those odds, it is clear that successful terror attacks are inevitable. Even with the very best security personnel, and the very worst draconian anti-liberal laws, an attack will always occur sooner or later.

    So if fighting is useless, what else can be done? Well, there’s always good old fashioned fear. But no! We can’t respond to such horror with kneejerk reactions and a fearful outlook on the world beyond our front rooms. We shouldn’t build walls and spurn those who are different from us. We should not react with hostility to refugees, Muslims, or foreigners with suspicion or hatred. All of that plays into the hands of terrorists. Terrorists – and nefarious politicians – don’t want peace and goodwill to all men, they want us to be at each other’s throats – christians, muslims, jews, atheists, rich, poor, right, left, you name it.

    The real solution is deceptively simple, but in practise so very complicated.

    The only hope of putting a stop to terrorism and, more widely *all* conflict, forever is to embrace peace.

    This is the most difficult thing in the world, something which will take generations and centuries to achieve and which has every chance of failing. Why? Because it involves talking to, empathising with and building friendships alongside enemies. As a species, we’re not very good at that, but it emphatically is within our skillset. To use just one example, the Troubles in Northern Ireland didn’t cease because one side knocked the other out with superior firepower. No, the IRA and the British government sat down, around a table, and talked to each other – one adversary to another. They talked, they negotiated and they showed willingness to compromise. The solution they came up with (the Good Friday Agreement) isn’t perfect and doesn’t satisfy everyone’s wishes, but it is good enough that the fighting has more or less finished.

    It sounds sanctimonious, and it is. Nonetheless, we have to come together as a species, to love one another, to treat each other with kindness and forgiveness even when we really don’t want to. All of us have to agree that violence, fighting and killing just is wrong, and everyone has to agree not to engage in it, because if everyone (and I do mean everyone) refused to fight, there would be no war.

    You see what I mean? It’s so simple, yet it’s going to be practically impossible to achieve. In the short to medium term, the strong likelihood is that we’re going to carry on making the wrong decisions. The way current affairs are going, things could get a whole lot worse before they get better. But that doesn’t stop you or I from individually making the decision to spurn conflict and embrace peace. Every great movement has to start small, so why not you? Why not us? Why not now?

    Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy solstice, yuletide greetings, enjoy the season – to all and any with the patience to read this post to the end.

    Be kind, and love one another.

      Seems most everything You brought up there is/was a psyop to create fear… ISIS is a CIA/Mossad construct (investigation offers evidence that this is so), existing in photo ops and “news” stories only. I could go on, pointing to the magic murder of ambassadors that do not bleed, gunmen that go from freshly shaved when shooting ambassadors to 5 o’clock shadows in a matter of minutes when They are “taken out…” But You will merely call My critical thinking “paranoia” or some such. LOL! Whatever. Do enjow the season, James.

        The thing about your theory is even if it’s true, it doesn’t matter. No matter who the ‘enemy’ really is, the only antidote is universal peace, through respect and love. So in that spirit, I wish you all the best for the holiday season, and a healthy and happy new year.

          Actually, since the foundational problem on this planet is that the systems We consent to promote psychopaths, and the “antidote” is to quit consenting to such systems and consent to ways that promote the caring Ones to take care of things. “If You want peace, take the PROFIT out of war…”

          I chuckle a bit at a psychopath suggesting the solution involves love… But I will say, I care about You (however much You don’t care really about Me). May Your coming years bring satisfaction and comfort, James.

            And I have to chuckle at your caring about me when I have given you no reason to do so. That’s not really because of psychopathy, just that we’re total strangers. But feel free (I know you will do what you feel like anyway, so my ‘permission’ won’t mean anything to you!), and have a happy Christmas.

      Your own life is proof of that. The moment you are free of your own family, you must make your own way. That is all the proof you need to know that the only guarantee you ever get, is that you are guaranteed a right to life. The other rights, you must earn, on the merits of the success towards goals using your own efforts. When people stop being successful in life, they can be ruined and lose their freedom to the court system, to drugs or to those who take advantage of them.

        That is only if We presume that things are best done the way they are being done, consenting to that way of doing things. The twin towers to psychopaths in power were set up by psychopaths to manipulate and control Us on OUR planet, making Us believe, through indoctrination , that this is the best of all possible ways We could do things. Frankly, I don’t consent to any of it, and work to topple those two towers such that We are no longer slave to the useless eliters, and ALL may live lives of leisure and industry of interest on this vastly abundant planet that could support 1000 times the number here now. Those two towers are top-down controlmind (government), and accounting for Human energy added into the system that accounts for Human energy added and moves the bulk of OUR wealth on this planet to very few psychopaths (money system).

        Sure, if We accept these, We must follow the rules the psychopaths in control put in place. I do not accept them. I do not consent. I consent to better ways, which I discuss at length in many short articles on My forum.

I enjoy placing the ideas out there for Those who read and might grasp that the foundational problem on this planet is psychopaths in control and that the systems We are consenting to promote Them, so no surprise They ARE in control. Maybe Some will also withdraw consent, share awareness, get Us closer to the tipping point.

      I have pretty much summed up everything I had to say during the time that I posted information. It’s unlikely I would start a blog because I don’t find it interesting to talk about myself at all. As far as discussing things are concerned, you will usually be talking at someone’s level of agreement. There is no need, from my end of things, to distract from the subject matter at hand, and it is with this end that one learns to “let sleeping dogs lie”.
      I have learnt quite a bit in the last couple of months that I did not know before. I am definitely better off for having come here and found out what I did. I would hope that someone somewhere, in the now, or the future to come, will find something that will make things a bit clearer, and easier to understand. And with that, you are to find, that I am moving on, to other things.

      At least Boris Johnson is a colorful individual. He has lotsof entertainment value. Unlike, for instance, Teresa Vague. There are no psychopaths here. No psychopath would post the stuff that you, James, post. You are a narcissist, without a doubt. As are the “psychopaths” here. This blog should be named: Narcissist Central. No need to worry because a lot of narcissists think they are psychopaths and start blogs about the wonders of psychopathy…ha! The prevailing theme that runs through the whole site, whether empath or not, is a weird sense of entitlement, as though your empathy, or lack of it, it itself confers upon you certain rights to a special group. Only a narcissist, and a special kind of weird “empathy” would come up with that “innocent” view.

      Keep drinking the cool aid. I wrote what I wrote with very good reason. Only some people would see what was written. The rest of them, would literally, blank out, like you did, James. So thanks a lot. In any case, my information is there and I wrote it for a reason, and none of you people were that reason.

      Like I said before, I have gained a lot of information from your blog. I do sincerely thank you. Without your blog it would have taken me longer to realize that some people are beyond redemption and are better left alone to wallow in their own misery. Don’t worry. More misery awaits you down the road. There are always worse things to come for you who looks for them. If you don’t have enough, you could make up some more until you really go bonkers and then you will be in hell. No, ahem.., I meant heaven

        Some psychopaths are more narcissistic than others. Some are more jovial and fun-loving. Some are more serious and morbid. There is a variety, just like in the rest of the population. How many psychopaths do you know? Because you can’t paint them all with the same brush.
