My humble opinion:
Good people, are often the cause of great evil and tyranny.
Allow me to explain.
Remember the old adage “evil persists because good people do nothing.”
We need to think deeply on this and also reflect on how this has ALWAYS gone down throughout history. “Good people” are usually unaware of the nature, magnitude, or even presence of evil or tyranny in their midst, BECAUSE OF THEIR GOODNESS.
We are often blinded by the light. We project our desire for good, onto corrupted people who depend on this dynamic for their survival and control. Our naïveté in this regard is why we are here now. They gain power because of this. But we can change this, once we become aware of how this really works.
Good people often project their own virtue onto others expecting that everyone is just as good and virtuous and well meaning as we are. Sadly, this isn’t always the case. In one sense this mechanism is a virtue, because we always want to see the best in people. In another sense however, it is our greatest weakness when left unchecked. Those manipulators and corrupt ones in power know this well.
Good people detest evil. So much so, that they will defend it without even realizing it.
Many will say “I meant well!”
Nature says: “not good enough.”
Harsh I know, but in my experience, true nonetheless.
Think of a tapeworm and how it operates in the body. Through it’s excretions, it eventually convinces the host that it is an organic part of the host, so the host feeds it thinking it is indeed part of the host. (Deception) The host does the “good thing” and feeds what it thinks is itself. The tapeworm grows and becomes stronger, eventually killing the host after depleting it.
Goodness without crystal clear awareness of the nature of evil, never survives, just as prey that is unaware of the nature and cunning of the predator, also never survives.
We grant quarter to evil because we don’t want it to exist. We wish so much that it didn’t exist, that we begin to pretend and operate as if it doesn’t exist at all. When we see it, we deny it outright. We edit it from our reality thinking it will just go away. We then become blind to it. Then we permit it. It then takes over unchallenged.
We scratch our heads....
We don’t want to believe it’s there, because we are not it. We don’t want to admit it exists to the extent that it does. It unfortunately becomes a major blind spot that psychopaths exploit time and time again be it tyrannical dictatorships, bizarre cults, serial killers, or mad scientists. We could never admit to ourselves that they can only exist in the vacuum of our denial.
Think of how innocent and naïve the vast majority of people are in this regard, those who have never experienced evil directly.
We want good things. We want to live and be free. We are generous and open. “No borders” say the good. Evil couldn’t be more supportive of this notion.
No guards at the gate.
No barriers of entry.
So open, we let evil right in the front door so long as it talks and acts like us. Our fear of it’s existence, strangely enough, wills it into existence.
Tyranny and evil stalk the lands unchallenged because of this blind refusal in good people to accept it, let alone train themselves to defend against it, challenge it and defeat it.
Way I see it, this is our current predicament.
In order to win this battle, we must face this hard truth.
The warrior classes in ancient times understood this process well. Most people today never read from them, they went to listen to the pedophilic priests & cults instead. Most people hate a warrior until there is an enemy at the gates. Given our current situation, I’d say it’s wise to hear them out.
We are in this situation due to a lack of knowledge and understanding about how this world really works, and how we let it happen without knowing it.
Good news is, it’s never too late. This is why we need to make a valiant stand against evil. No denial, no backing down, no quarter, no surrender.
