“Media system …tries to entertain them (people) through means which will intensify attitudes that support the interests of elites. …Professional Sports are a way of building up ‘Jingoist Fanaticism.’ …a way of building into people irrational submissiveness to power.  And it’s a very dangerous thing …diversion …the real purpose of those media is to dull people’s brains …get involved in fundamentalist stuff …get them away from things that matter. And for that it’s important to reduce their capacity to think.”  ~ Chomsky
Take say sports, that’s another crucial example of the indoctrination system …it offers people something to pay attention to that’s of no importance. That keeps them from worrying about things that matter to their lives that they might have some idea about doing something about. …it’s a way of building up irrational attitudes of submission to authority. …and you know, group cohesion behind, you know, leadership elements.

DEATH RATE:  WHITE MEN The Death Rate among white American men, aged 35-54, is increasing.  Since 1999, the Mortality Rate of 45-54 year olds increased markedly. ~ (Washington Post, NY Times and @guardian articles)
{Notes from the Thom Hartmann Radio Show 11-15:
The causes of the rise in early deaths were suicide, alcohol, prescription drugs, and illegal drugs (mostly heroin), not diseases.
High Fructose Corn Syrup consumption is upsetting fat and sugar metabolism.
In 1987, “Third Way” political strategist, Al From asked Governor Bill Clinton (D*AR) to join him and push through NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), promising to make him President.
The “social cause” of the pain that caused an increase in the death rate was probably the NAFTA trade agreement that exported good paying manufacturing jobs starting in 1999.  “Most Favored Nation” trade status with China exported more good paying jobs.
From the year 2000 to today (11-2015), the US has lost 60,000 factories (of 500 workers or more).  Most of the job losses are due to the passage of NAFTA and free trade with China.
The average manufacturing job (1999) would be worth $58,000 today.  Half a million white men were likely the victims of the manufacturing job losses.
NAFTA and free trade with China are forces of destruction for the white middle class. }

“Addiction is an adaptation to your environment.” ~ Johann Hari
[min 5:30] “You look at history, there are moments when addictions spikes, right?  …Why does’ Crack’ happen in the 80’s…the destruction of industrial America…the destruction of factories, the destruction of organized labor.  Why do you get the ‘Meth Epidemic’ in the 90’s?  You have the destruction of rural America under ‘Reaganism’.  Why are we seeing an ‘Oxy Crisis’ now?  What’s happened since 2008 that might be causing a lot of distress, panic and pain (the market crash)?  So there’s an underlying continuity where you see a spike in distress.  And we have created a society where a significant number of our fellow citizens, including some people I love, can’t bear to be present in their lives.  If we want them to be present in their lives we have to make reality a lot better.  And we have to think about the fact that we’re a hyper individualistic, hyper capitalist, consumer based society that leaves a lot of people thinking that their life just ‘ain’t’ worth being present in.”

ADDICTION STUDY, RAT PARK: Bruce Alexander of Simon Fraser University
{ The Rat Park experiment supplied rats in conventional small cages with Morphine Hydrochloride treated water for 57 days.  One population of rats was moved from the small cages to Rat Park with 200 times the space of standard laboratory cages, given plenty of food and a choice of drinking plain water or the previously supplied Morphine Hydrochloride water.  Given the choice of two drinks in a more spacious cage, rats chose the plain water for the most part.  So when given a roomy environment, the rats preferred playing and exploring to partaking of Morphine Hydrochloride water with its sedative effects. }

Psychology-10666E, Defining and Recognizing a Psychopath
“…showed a lack of emotion, spoke in terms of cause-and-effect when describing their crimes, and focused …on basic needs, such as food, drink and money.”
“…use of the past tense can be an indicator of psychological detachment…”
“…speech, dysfluencies indicate that the speaker needs some time to think about what they are saying. …think the ‘uhs’ and ‘ums’ are about putting the mask of sanity on…”
“…likely to view the crime as the logical outcome of a plan”

Documentary Film about Psychopaths: “I AM FISHEAD”
“…we not only praise psychopaths …highest positions of power …they became our role models. Challenge your beliefs! (writers) …delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes, and revealed something crucial about us.”
Approximate Narration Notes:
(min 46:30)   “To blindly obey authority means be mindless.  Don’t do critical thinking.  Just do what you’re told.  And that links up …if parents say mind your own business.  Don’t get involved.  Don’t think too deeply about it.  Just do what I say.  That is one of the worst things that can happen to any society.  An unthinking society is a society that’s vulnerable to these psychopaths, because they say …I have the answer.  I have the way.  I have the money.  I have the power.  I have the status.  I can give you jobs.  All you have to do is …do it my way.”
Corporate Psychopaths, Politicians, Bankers, Business Leaders exist without a conscience.  Parts of the brain are colder.  They’re manipulative and possess a stunning lack of empathy.  They look at other people as mere objects.  They’re egotistical, self-centered, manipulating others for their own ends.  You see the mask.
They are 1% of the general population.  (Some say there are 1.5 psychopaths and 2.5 sociopaths per 100 people in the general population.) Psychopaths have greater education and talk the language of their victims. Corporate Psychopaths, (Year 2000) the richest 1% own 40% of global assets.  The richest 10% own 85% of global assets, while the economic bottom half own barely 1% of global assets.  Psychopaths are fearless.  The “Game of Monopoly” demonstrates the ability to concentrate wealth.
In study of corporate psychopaths involving 203 high level executives, it was revealed that that the psychopaths among them had all the qualities that “should” doom them to failure.  They mimic high performing individuals, recognize them as rivals, and knock them off.
An unthinking society is vulnerable to psychopaths.  Psychopaths ask people to do what they say for the illusion of security.  Many organizations and systems themselves are sociopathic.  Money and the desire for money simply begets more desire …a very primitive state of desire to see it as limitless.  Psychologically …those limits become removed.
(To change the system) Give up on the pursuit of happiness in the sense that happiness is something you get from possessing “more.”  Consumer culture rests on dissatisfaction.  No one who is doing evil ever thinks of it as evil.  People get programmed not to look at evil and not to get involved.  We’re programmed to be egocentric.  The train-of-thought being …it’s so big, if it’s going down, there’s nothing we can do but take pleasures along the way.
We’re influenced by people around us.  We’re affected by people who are 2 or 3 degrees removed from us …affected by friends of friends of friends in human social networks.  People are influenced as though we are all connected.
Humans are not as capable of free will as previously thought.  The task in the world is to seek power for other people.  Moral behavior tends to ripple out and spread back towards us.  Most ordinary people are good, passive, and tend to look side-to-side.
“The advantage of being in a society is that when 5-6% of the people become aware of a danger …nearly everyone becomes aware.  What Will You Do?”

-/\/-   Note From: L. Amos, Psychology Doctoral Candidate, Indiana
“My doctorate is in executive leadership coaching.  As such, I’ve been studying adult psychopathology among leaders.  In a study of anti-social personality disorder, (known vernacularly as Sociopathy), they compared high finance execs in London with inmates in a hospital for the so-called “criminally insane.”  What they found was that the inmates and the execs scored similarly on anti-social scales.  The execs, they concluded, were simply more successful sociopaths.”

About greenenvscithr

This American, a socially concerned blogger, is a conservationist and an anti-desertification advocate. Cultures with paralyzed memories expand deserts. These cause and effect traits define human impact in the geologic warming period that is marked by population explosion, technological advancement and desertification of vast tracts of arable land. As a tree-hugger, it’s easy to look around the world at deforestation which dries climates, decreases surface water, but increases soil erosion and global warming …evaluating them as slow motion end-times behaviors. It should also be noted that progressive behavioral change holds the potential to stride toward sustainability, and coexistence on a blue-green planet …with others who look, think, talk, or act differently. (Tribalism + Nationalism + Profit-Charter = Corp’s War + Human Carnage + Environmental Disaster) If regard for a living environment reached a status equal to that fomented by deities, a bond uniting humanity across cultural and national borders could really exist. The human behavior instruction manual might offer a harmonic concrete experience instead of the confusion in an 1,189 chapter tyrant's windsock that requires interpreters with different intentions to construct misunderstandings about both physical and virtual worlds. Any deity that demands intellectual hypocrisy to absorb what is abstract, and funnels prey to the misguidance that mandates blind-belief, silence and complicity (while spreading clinical paranoid schizophrenia) will just lead people where psychopaths designate. Most religions are better described as "Maleligions" …as their traditions and laws are male contrived and dominated hierarchies. They generally concentrate on controlling women for the convenience of men, and programming both for the advantage of tyrants. A dictator wants blind-believers with a testosterone disadvantage and compliant cracker ovens to repopulate followers, thus erasing fatal mistakes in his tyrannical judgment. Creating “emotional deserts” raft with mental vortexes, (in which to become psychologically lost), leads stealthily to the cultural dissonance and distraction that produces the real ones, “rock paved deserts.” The human race is minimally a gaggle of tribes of desert-makers, except for a few that live sustainably. Freed from the bondage of a hereafter (that promises a reunion with familiar like minded people and an aura of mystery), progress and sustainability (unencumbered by cultural apathy and a parched pre-destiny) could exist. But religions general heading is in the opposite direction… suppressing women, sporting flat earth firewalls and celebrating dark-age “dolthood” as it spills human brain power into an everlasting insurance policy. Generally speaking, mysterious religions provide segues between human ignorance and corrupt psychopaths in an overall unconscious effort to leave no planet worth inhabiting. 3,018 ac edited 09-27-14
