IN RESPONSE TO THE 'CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY' POST,
Joe Heath wrote this comment. It fits well following also the 'Awareness of Judgments' and 'One Version of the Matrix' posts.
Manipulators are the black hats. They're everywhere. Look for the signs of a manipulator. Next are the idiots that follow them. An extreme example would be Adolf Hitler and his dumb s*** followers. [Does non-judgmental love call people dumbshit?]
However, we have to look at the bottom line of what caused that. Hatred? No. Beliefs of I'm better than you? Violence and extremism? No. We have to do what we are supposed to and not be strayed. Love your fellow man even when they do vile things. I'm not saying let them do it over and over. I'm not saying let them get away with it. We have to love them. We have to not judge others.
We have to not let others judge others. Instead we must love them. An example is looking for a terrorist as if they have committed an act of violence already. Hurry up turn them in. We have got to turn ourselves around. We cannot believe in fear and we cannot believe in false truths. While we are looking for terrorism and sucking ourselves dry. It was a paper tiger. The threat was never anywhere near the threat of the opioid crisis. It was never anywhere near the threat of human trafficking. So we have a whole bunch of people in law enforcement who follow an agenda to be looking for terrorism when the bottom line is, catch people who break the law and do it from both sides government and civilians.
Whomever has told that law enforcement as well as all of us that we have to hunt for terrorists. Or be on the lookout for them so much. That is an example of an Adolf Hitler act. That is an example a manipulative Behavior. While it may have been well intended, or may not have been well intended. It is manipulative Behavior none the less. It is allowed for terrorism to do exactly as it is supposed to do. Generated fear and then got us to react to that fear.
The bottom line for that subject is judging others. To pretend that someone is dangerous in advance and hold them. Is judging others. The bottom line is antagonization. We must be very careful not to antagonize other people and often times we probably don't even realize we are doing it. We can hold people accountable for infractions of law and not before they commit those. We can love one another. We can remember faith hope and love are some great things and we can remember to stay humble and kind.
All the other stuff is probably BS. When I sat and put enough thought into it. I prayed for the wisdom to be able to say what is the bottom line so that we can act rapidly and with simplicity. The bottom line is manipulators. We have to learn to see them we have to learn to spot them and we have to learn to do something about it without villainizing them. Villainizing any group of people no matter how vile they seem. That is manipulative behavior and it is doing exactly what we are not supposed to do.
Very deep and very difficult subject you have touched on. I put years and years thought into it and not realized where to find other people like me. I do feel there are plenty of people who believe they have certain things and they really don't. I could be mistaken and I won't judge. I can do what I'm supposed to do. The Warrior part of me can stand up for the rights of others. The Warrior part of me can stand up to Injustice.
Be careful to look at what a manipulator is going to do when you try to change them. [Why try to change anyone. Isn't that also manipulative?]
Know those things will happen and don't be afraid to do what's right. It's going to be a very difficult thing to turn around. Most of us and including myself either manipulate or fall victim to it. We can recognize this in ourselves first and foremost. We can apologize and call out our own behavior. Then we must let our actions speak louder than our words. We must actually change and not turn back to what we were doing.
We must do to others as we would want done to ourselves. As a bottom line that is one. We can lead by example. We cannot allow for ruling or controlling. It is a deep and complicated subject. Anyone who has the ability needs to put serious deep thought in it. Not like Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. We cannot think of me and instead we need to be thinking about we.
We cannot think about things that may happen to us. We must think about things that are happening to others. We must not think about money or fame. There's a song at the top of my Facebook page that gives a hell of a good example of what might happen if you let manipulators have control. It's been going on for a long time. Communist communist where are they we got to find them. Uggh that game is up. What can we use now. Ooh I got it. Nuclear war! Everybody watch out everybody watch out we got to get ready. Then you get taxed heavily to get ready for that paper tiger from a manipulator. Now it's terrorists. Oh wait. We've already moved on. That game slowed. Now it's Homeland terrorists! There we go there's a new game.
We got to learn to call bullshit. We got to learn to say no I mean I'll learn to remove a manipulator from Authority or power. For if all that money spent on Military and to watch every one of us as if we are some threat that we never were. If that money was spent and those tools were utilized to stop corruption and crime. Imagine what a better world this would be. In Nazi Germany we recognized anti-Semitism and we still do to this day. We can't chase around every little thing like that. We have to just say that is villainizing. We have to recognize it and stop it. It applies to any group whether we like them or not. If we put ourselves in someone else's shoes we wouldn't want to be called something such as right-wing extremist. In that entire group there are manipulators and there are the idiots who follow them.
The manipulator is likely to try to lash out with violence or get others to do it when you call them out for their BS. The followers have already been antagonized. Antagonizing them further by villainizing them from the other side is not helping. It's just creating the same problem and compounding it. Anti-Semitism is just villainizing a group. It happens to be Jews in that group. Mankind was fed lies that they fell for about how bad this group of people is. That group was Jews and that is anti-Semitism. What we failed to recognize, that is one piece of a manipulators game. It was manipulative behavior that caused those actions and it was the idiots that follow that and did not question. The Stanley Milgram experiment.
The short answer for what you're asking. The bad people are the manipulators and the idiots who follow them. Even worse are the idiots who know that is happening and don't do anything. From inside that group or outside. If we love our fellow man unconditionally, we certainly would not be villainizing them. We have to learn all the other pieces of manipulative Behavior. At the bottom line is antagonist. What antagonizes people. If we are all connected. Then how can we help our fellow man to not be antagonized? We can learn to recognize and stop any and all forms of manipulative behavior and that includes a whole lot more than just villainizing. That goes for everyone. Is that a complicated enough answer for you?
That is a deep thought answer, both complicated and simple enough for me.
It is so simple it can be summarized in one word: love.
It feels worthwhile for me to work with it. May I add your comment to my Whole Human blog post?
My answer to your comment is two fold. Individual shadow work, and as an intermediary step towards a non monetary society, the decentralized blockchain technology of the Cardano Project, with its trusted community of developers committed to a more transparent, just, and egalitarian society.
