The Reality of Ancient Atlantis & “Extraterrestrial” Contact – A Discussion That’s Gaining More Credibility

Published

on

When it comes to human history, we are, as author Graham Hancock once coined, a species with amnesia. We have a hard time putting together the pieces of the puzzle, and the explanations for what took place at various points throughout human history still remains, for the most part, a mystery. On top of all this confusion and lack of understanding, comes indoctrination via education. Scientific and religious dogma still dominate, and despite the fact that new discoveries are being made every single day, and more “missing links” continue to pop up in the mainstream, most of the world is still unaware of these discoveries and their implications. One of these discoveries is the idea of advanced intelligent ancient civilizations who once roamed the Earth, and the evidence to back it up.

History is not always as it’s told, which is why critical thinking and investigation is important if one is passionate about such subjects. Relying on basic “education” can mislead us and misinform us in some cases. Another important point to make note of is the classification of information. According to the best estimates of some historians, the U.S. government alone classifies more than 500 million pages of documents every single year. For a historian looking to archive the history of the United States, this would be nearly impossible to do so in an accurate manner.

A lot of information  from the past contradicts much of what we’ve been told today.

It seems, in the fields of human history, archaeology and our understanding of ancient civilizations, new discoveries seem to be popping up every single day.

From the teachings of the  Sumerians, Mayans, ancient Egyptians, Greeks,  all the way to Atlantians and more, there are facts that still remain unacknowledged when piecing together the mystery that is human history. These topics, and several examples can be found doing some simple independent research, but for a more in-depth look with multiple examples that come from our ancient world, I suggest you start off with the work of author Graham Hancock if you’re really passionate about lost ancient civilizations.

Lost Atlantis, Noah’s Ark & Gobekli Tepe – A Curious Thread of Evidence That Connects Them All

This article will focus in on Atlantis, and the possible extraterrestrial activity that occurred in those times.

It’s quite odd that, when it comes to the works of Plato and others who lived in times we know very little about, we ourselves choose to label what is real and what is mythological. We do this almost instinctively, and it seems to be based on what conflicts with our ingrained belief systems at the time. When new information is presented which goes against the grain, and has the potential to shift ones own or the collective paradigm, it’s not always easy to accept and even easier to ridicule, even in the face of strong evidence.

“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool” – Plato

Plato, and other scholars who came before and after him, as shown in the literature, discussed at length human history, the origin of the human species, and the true nature of reality. How Plato, and those before and after him, were able to discuss aspects of space and physics which were only recently confirmed in modern history remains a mystery – similar to what we see with Buddhism and quantum physics. So much knowledge has been shared from the fraction of documents and text we have from that era, that it is truly mind-altering to contemplate the accuracy of their thoughts when you compare it to modern day knowledge.`

In many instances, our modern day world is trying hard to catch up to ancient wisdom.

One topic of interest among some of our ancients, is the lost land of Atlantis. Plato is one who wrote about it, and he lived in a time closer to the period in question. He wasn’t the only one to do so, but why is it that when ancient documents and ‘influential’ figures who describe aspects of ancient society like social norms, financial structure and education, they’re taken extremely seriously, but when speaking of an advanced ancient civilizations and spirituality, they’re words are considered mythical?

Many people have tried to piece this mystery together. A more modern day example would be M. Pierre Termeir, a member of the Academy of Sciences and Director of Service of the Geologic Chart of France,  who gave a lecture regarding the Atlantean civilization.  He makes a compelling case for further study of this lost city, which was the subject of significant importance for researchers at the Smithsonian Institution, as emphasized by their Annual Report of the Board of Regents of The Smithsonian Institution for the year ending June 30th, 1915.

In the report, author M. Pierre Termeir,

After a long period of disdainful indifference, observe how in the last few years science is returning to the study of Atlantis. How many naturalists, geologists, zoologists, or botanists are asking one another today whether Plato has not transmitted to us, with slight amplification, a page from the actual history of mankind. No affirmation is yet permissible; but it seems more and more evident that a vast region, continental  or made up of great islands, has collapsed west of the Pillars of Hercules, otherwise called the Straight of Gibraltar, and that its collapse occurred in the not far distant past. In any event, the question of Atlantis is placed anew before men of science; and since I do not believe that it can ever be solved without the aid of oceanography, I have thought it natural to discuss it here, in this temple of maritime science, and to call to such a problem, long scorned but now being revived, the attention of oceanographers, as well as the attention of those who, though immersed in the tumult of cities, lend an ear to the distant murmur of the sea.

You can read this full report here, starting on page 219.

According to Plato, Atlantis was inhabited by ‘earth-born’ and ‘primitive’ human beings. One of them was wooed by the god Poseidon, who interbred with the human beings, and they eventually bore five children. This interbreeding between gods and humans is a common theme in many historical texts found throughout the world.

Was it really interbreeding between beings from another planet?

The land was divided into concentric zones of land and water. Two zones of land and three zones of water surrounded the central island, which had warm springs of water and cold springs of water. The land became an established country, with a wise government and an industry that saw them soar to advanced technological heights, beyond anything we’ve reached today.

According to Plato, Atlantis was full of large and beautiful palaces, temples, docks, and a network of various bridges and canals that united different sections of the kingdom.

His description was very precise. For example, when describing the construction of public buildings, he explains:

“They circumscribed each of the land zones with a wall, the outer wall being covered with brass, the middle with tin, and the inner, which encompassed the citadel, with orichalc. The citadel, on the central island, contained the palaces, temples, and other public buildings. In its center, surrounded by a wall of gold, was a sanctuary dedicated to Cleito and Poseidon.” (source)

“The part of Atlantis facing the sea was described as lofty and precipitous, but about the central city was a plain sheltered by mountains renowned for their size, number, and beauty. The plain yielded two crops each year, in the winter being watered by rains and in the summer by immense irrigation canals, which were also used for transportation. The plain was divided into sections and in time of war each section supplied its quota of fighting men and chariots.” (source)

Atlantis was massive, ruled by multiple kings who all had control over their land. Their relationships with the other kings were governed by an original code of ethics that was engraved by the first ten kings. “The chief laws of the Atlantean kings were that they should not take up arms against each other and that they should come to the assistance of any of their number who was attacked.” (source)

Eventually, Atlantis fell due to greed, ego, and black magic. Qualities not rare among ‘men.’  It’s these qualities that still exist today which the human race, on a collective level, that we need to let go of.

To read in more detail how Atlantis fell, according to Plato, you can read the article linked below:

The Lost Land of Atlantis & The Real Reason For Its Downfall – According To Plato

The Extraterrestrial Question 

“Yes, there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered… We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time.” –  Apollo 14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell (source) (source)

As you can see from above, Plato’s description of the ‘Gods’ and how they assisted, as well as inbred with the native human populations, is nothing new.

Were these Gods extraterrestrial? It’s not an uncommon thought, which is probably made most evident by popular mainstream TV shows, like Ancient Aliens.

Another strong point to entertain this thought (the extraterrestrial hypothesis) is the fact that Plato’s (among others’) description of ancient Greek society, the Romans, historical accounts of various events (like the burning of the Library of Alexandria) , and more (which are all used to teach people about ancient Greek society today), are all extremely accurate.

Why then, is it so hard to believe accounts given by Plato, in the exact same manner of description and enthusiasm, to be true?  Because it doesn’t “line up” with our belief systems?

What makes this thought so relevant now is all of the information which has emerged within the past couple of years alone regarding the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon.

Pop culture sensation, Tom Delonge, seems to be at the forefront of a United States disclosure movement. He’s started what’s called the To The Stars Academy, and joining him are high ranking Department of Defence officials, like Louis Elizondo, an ex CIA director, and technological geniuses like Steve Justice, a recently retired 30-year director of Lockheed Martin Skunkworks. (Read more about this in the article linked below).

They’ve come together, in partnership with the US government, to let the world know that the UFO phenomenon is indeed real, that objects are commonly tracked on radar and visually confirmed, objects which travel at speeds and perform maneuvers that no known air-craft on Earth can. They (the Pentagon in partnership with To The Stars)  recently released a video of one of these technologically advanced craft. The people at To The Stars have mentioned on more than one occasion that there is good evidence to believe we are not alone.

Despite the fact that this is now being presented to the mainstream, it’s not a new phenomenon and these types of encounters have been documented for decades.

You can view the video and our discussion about it in the article linked below:

US Department of Defence Released Video of a UFO Rotating In Mid Air For The Very First Time 

Sure, UFO doesn’t mean extraterrestrial, but when you have objects travelling and performing technical capabilities that defy our laws of physics, it’s not something to ignore.

On top of that, the extraterrestrial hypothesis as on of several possible explanations for the UFO phenomena does have, what some scientists consider to be, strong evidence behind it. You can read more about that discussion in the article linked below:

It’s official, we now know that UFOs or UAP Are Real, So Are They Extraterrestrial or Not? 

This recent acknowledgement by the US government regarding UFOs does raise a lot of questions, especially given the fact that western governments have been deceiving us on several topics for a long time.

Is A False Flag Alien Invasion In The Works? Wernher Von Brauns Colleague Seems To Think So

When it comes to Atlantis, and ancient Greece, Delonge (of To The Stars)  mentions some interest stuff in his recent Podcast with Joe Rogan. Whether or not you chose to believe it or not is up to you, but keep in mind, the UFO phenomena is not a reality, and the extraterrestrial hypothesis is (and has been) backed by some of the most notable scientists throughout human history, as well as high ranking Defence employees like the ones Tom has gathered together with.

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” –  Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of modern rocketry. (source)

Many scientists, astronauts and employees from within has said, time and time again, that they know many of these unknown objects are indeed extraterrestrial.

Tom states in a Podcast with Joe Rogan:

“I went and met a former director of the CIA and NSA…Right when I sat down and told him about the book you know what he says to me? He goes, “I didn’t read much science fiction when I was a kid but I read a lot about Greek mythology”…The sixth biggest defense contractor in the world is a company called Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC)…and in the front of the building (SAIC’s headquarters) you have an obelisk coming out of a fake leg and two Atlantians on thrones, and they’re both holding pyramids and one says the past and one says the future, and they’re 8 foot tall statues.”

Quite an interesting observation. He also mentioned that “Gods” in this time were extraterrestrial, beings from other worlds and/or dimensions guiding and pushing humanity along with little pushes here and there. These types of figures are described by several ancient cultures throughout the world, more so prior to the Roman empire, when gods became “God.”

So, it is indeed interesting to ponder, were these ‘Gods’ actually extraterrestrial?

I’ll leave you with this video, as I’ve done countless times before, so I apologize if you missed it. Contrary to popular believe, just as there was evidence for the now verified UFO phenomenon, there is evidence that does support the extraterrestrial hypothesis, and a lot of it.

The clip below is from the Thrive documentary.

Is There Collusion Between Facebook & DC Think Tanks in Censoring Alternative Media Voices?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Neocon Jamie Fly has taken partial credit for the purge of alternative media sites on Facebook and Twitter. They still claim the reason for this is their spreading of fake news from Russia and China. They allege that more deletions are coming.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we still believe this Russian interference narrative from the mainstream? Is this not just a modern book burning? By not questioning mainstream narratives, is our voluntary unconsciousness creating an undesirable world?

After the recent social media purge of independent media voices, Jamie Fly, an employee of a leading Washington DC think tank has allegedly taken credit for being involved in the colluded efforts by Facebook and Twitter, stating this was necessary in order to fight against ‘fake news’ from Russia and China.

To be clear, I, a Canadian operating an independent media outlet (Collective Evolution) am friends with some of the admins of these pages who were deleted this October. The people running and owning these pages are American and have absolutely no ties to Russia and China nor get their narratives from Russia or China.

Yet, this is still the narrative being put forth, and it clearly has no backing.

“Russia, China, and other foreign states take advantage of our open political system,” Jamie Fly said.

Jamie Fly is no quiet voices when it comes to non-peaceful tactics. He has advocated for military assault on Iran, a regime change war on Syria, and hiking military spending to unprecedented levels. He is the what many people would consider is a pure neoconservative.

Fly began showing up in the news as an expert on social media and ‘Russian disinformation’ speaking on the narrative that Russia had interfered in the 2016 presidential election in the US. Which there is still has no credible evidence to support.

“They can invent stories that get repeated and spread through different sites. So we are just starting to push back. Just this last week Facebook began starting to take down sites. So this is just the beginning.” Fly continued.

According to Jeb Sprague, a visiting faculty member in sociology at the University of California-Santa Barbara, recalls various claims Jamie Fly made to him with regards to Facebook and Twitter censorship.  According to Sprague, Fly also stated that he was working with the Atlantic Council in the campaign to purge alternative media from social media platforms like Facebook.

If you recall, we wrote an entire piece on the Atlantic Council who has been working with Facebook to determine who to delete. The Atlantic Council has ties to many prominent deep state figures and is funded by them as well.

The Takeaway

Again here we’re seeing more pieces to the puzzle show up in this effort against independent media voices. Note, this is not about silencing hateful voices or extreme voices, it’s simply anyone who dissents from the mainstream narrative. This is The United States creating George Orwell’s 1984, and it’s those who don’t question mainstream narratives who are unknowingly supporting these actions.

What does our unconsciousness and unwillingness to ask questions about mainstream narratives truly causing?

At CE we have lost 80% of our funding since two years ago due to censorship of our voice. If you feel our work is important and want to ensure we keep independent media going, please consider joining our CETV platform.

Tulsi Gabbard Files Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton Over Defamatory Statements

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Tulsi Gabbard, a United States Congresswoman, Army National Guard Major, and 2020 presidential candidate, filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton for her defamatory remarks.

  • Reflect On:

    Is the political system broken? Can we keep voting and using the same system hoping for change? Does politics, and voting, take power out of our own hands and put it in the hands of a small group of people?

There are a few Great quotes that instantly come to mind everytime the thought of politics enters my head, one of them comes from Edward Bernays, “the father of public relations” from his book, Propaganda, 1928. If you’ve read some of my articles you have probably come across it before,

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.

To me, this is what modern day politics, for the most part, represents. It’s a game where, whoever is elected, or rather selected as some would argue, seems to insult and expose their competition in as many ways as possible, while simultaneously making moves and making statements that accumulate more loyal followers, and voters. It is the complete opposite of doing what our leaders should be doing, working together while at the same time being completely transparent. Furthermore, the upper echelon of the political game only seems to feature powerful people, with close ties and connections to people above them who have accumulated even more wealth and power. Many presidents over the years only seem to follow the will of their masters, who are comprised of the corporate and financial elite.

Another great quote that comes to mind I like to use often,

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. – Theodore Roosevelt (source)

This ‘invisible’ government has been referred to by many over the years. In the modern day, some called it “the deep state” and believe it’s made up of mainstream media, and many other corporations and institutions that greatly influence US elections, foreign policy as well as the decisions that are supposedly made by the president of the United States. This is why we see people connected to great power always take the presidency. It’s no secret that politics is full of corruption, not to mention entrapment, blackmail, pedophilia (as exposed more within the mainstream with regards to the Jeffrey Epstein case), and much more.

But every now and then, a pure soul seems to emerge garnering the attention of many. And when they do, ‘the establishment’ completely ignores them, belittles them, and falsely accuses them in an attempt to shift the perception of the character in question within the minds of the masses. It’s as if, from the very beginning, they have no chance to win because it’s so unfair, and so much is pitted against them.

This is exactly why veteran and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is experiencing this type of thing. Gabbard first caught my attention when she introduced the  Stop Arming Terrorists Act (H.R.608) which would have stopped, or attempted to stop the U.S. government from using taxpayer dollars to directly or indirectly support groups who are allied with and supporting terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in their war to overthrow the Syrian government. The legislation is based on congressional action during the Iran-Contra affair to stop the CIA’s illegal arming of rebels in Nicaragua. It is endorsed by Progressive Democrats of America, the U.S. Peace Council, and Veterans For Peace.

She has long been creating awareness on issues of how this ‘establishment works.’ Here’s one of her latest re-tweets.

She spoke and speaks a lot of truth, she is a supporter of people like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, and an advocate for peace and has the desire to end corrupt wars, and much more. Clearly, she’s a big threat to the establishment that seems to control and has controlled the presidency for a long time.

This is why her persona has been ‘bashed’ by establishment owned mainstream media, and the powerful Hillary Clinton, who has labelled Gabbard as a Russian asset, among many other things, which in Turn is why Gabbard has filed a lawsuit against Clinton for defamation of character.

They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset (Tulsi), I mean, totally. – Clinton (source)

According to he NY Post:

She filed her $50 million defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton to hold the former secretary of state “accountable” for her alleged smears.

Tulsi’s website states:

Washington, DC – Tulsi Gabbard, a United States Congresswoman, Army National Guard Major, and 2020 presidential candidate, today filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton. Gabbard, a U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district, asserts in her complaint that Clinton deliberately and maliciously made false statements in an attempt to derail Rep. Gabbard’s campaign, by alleging that Gabbard is a “Russian asset.” The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by Brian Dunne and Dan Terzian, Rep. Gabbard’s legal counsel and partners at Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP.

Clinton was the 2016 Democratic Party nominee for President of the United States, United States Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, a United States Senator for the State of New York from 2001 to 2009, and the First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001. On October 17, 2019, she publicly stated in an interview that “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary … [is a] favorite of the Russians… Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.” The press extensively republished and disseminated these statements, which were interpreted widely as Clinton asserting that Gabbard is a Russian asset.

The complaint seeks compensatory damages and an injunction prohibiting the further publication of Clinton’s defamatory statements.

The case is Tulsi Gabbard and Tulsi Now, Inc. v. Hillary Rodham ClintonA copy of the full complaint is available here.

The Takeaway

I often wonder why humanity keeps playing with a system that’s completely corrupt and broken. Our ‘leaders’ don’t seem to have humanity and planet Earth in mind when it comes to making their decisions. Today, the system is a representation of greed, fear, ego, profit, and much more, but one thing is for sure, it’s far from serving the people and other beings that reside on our planet. We need leaders that truly care about our environment, the people, preservation, life, and abundance for all. What we really need is a complete collapse of the current system we are playing with, and to implement something far greater that is more in line with the current level of human consciousness, and something that is more representative of our collective human potential. And most of all, we need to stop pointing fingers and blaming political figures for our problem because at the end of the day, on the deepest of levels, we are simply allowing it to happen. Politics doesn’t help as it makes us feel the power to change things is out of our hands, in in ‘theirs.’

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete – Buckminister Fuller (L. Steven Sieden, A Fuller View – Buckminster Fuller´s Vision of Hope and Abundance for all“, p. 358), Divine Arts Media (2011)

One thing seems to be quite clear, people are tired of politics and it is no longer serving humanity. It’s useless and pointless, and is counterintuitive. It’s no longer serving the collective, and it’s quite questionable whether it ever has.

Snakes In Suits: Are Psychopaths Running The World?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    By comparing traits of psychopaths, as determined by experts, to those of people in corporate or political positions of power, we can see a clear link.

  • Reflect On:

    Psychopaths feel no remorse, guilt or empathy for their actions. When we look at the many inhumane acts that are currently taking place on our planet, it begs the following question with judgement aside: Are psychopaths running our world?

Editors Note: We felt this was important to discuss, not from a place of judgement and fear but one of observation so we can ask important questions as to whether or not we want to keep supporting the world we are co-creating at this time.

Often when we think of the word psychopath, we think of deranged serial killers that are hopefully locked up in prison for life. While there are many psychopaths who kill for reasons that are unfathomable to most of us and who are indeed in prison, there is an even greater number roaming free in our society and often using their condition to their advantage in any way possible. In fact, it is very likely that you know some–they might even be your colleagues.

Most of us do not know or work with any serial killers, at least not that we are aware of. So, what exactly is a psychopath and how can we define them? The dictionary definition is as follows:

“A person suffering from a chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behavior.”

As you can probably tell, a lot more than just serial killers will fit into this broad definition. In fact, according to Canadian psychologist Dr. Robert Hare, a world-renowned expert on psychopathy, an estimated 1% of the Earth’s population is psychopathic and around 25% of the population of male inmates at federal correctional facilities are psychopathic.

Psychopathic Traits

advertisement - learn more

It is important to note that, in contrast with the popular image of the ‘deranged psycho,’ psychopaths tend to be very well composed, take good care of their appearance and are very charming (think of Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho). Because of this you may have a difficult time spotting them out, as they are masters of deception and are able to fake a lot of the qualities that define regular people. Some other psychopathic traits, according to Hare’s Psychopathy Checklist, are as follows:

  • Glib and superficial charm
  • Grandiose estimation of self
  • Need for stimulation
  • Manipulative and cunning
  • Complete lack of remorse or guilt
  • Pathological lying
  • Have a parasitic lifestyle, often latching onto and taking from others
  • Have a history of early behavioral problems
  • Overly impulsive
  • Are very irresponsible
  • Unable to accept responsibility for actions
  • Unable to commit to long-term relationships
  • History of juvenile delinquency
  • Display criminal versatility
  • Experienced a “revocation of conditional release”
  • Lacks realistic long term goals
  • History of promiscuous sexual behavior
  • Have poor behavioral controls
  • Are callous and lack empathy
  • Have a “shallow affect” (psychopaths show a lack of emotion when an emotional reaction is appropriate.)

You can actually rate yourself to find out if you are psychopath. On each criterion, the subject is ranked on a 3-point scale: (0 = item does not apply, 1 = item applies somewhat, 2 = item definitely applies). The scores are summed to create a rank of zero to 40. Anyone who scores 30 and above is most likely a psychopath. Hare has used this test and checklist to detect which inmates are psychopaths.

Snakes In Suits

What many of us may not realize is that psychopaths actually thrive in the corporate world. Hare has actually co-authored a book with Dr. Paul Babiak on this topic entitled, Snakes In Suits: Understanding and Surviving the Psychopaths in Your Office. Psychopaths manipulate others to accrue power, sometimes pitting them against each other in an attempt to divide and conquer. They are often attracted to bigger, dynamic corporations with very little structure or supervision. They generally don’t work well in teams because they don’t like to share information or skills and it brings them joy to watch others fail. They are addicted to power, status and money. Sound familiar?

The corporate world is set up to favor psychopathic traits such as fearlessness, dominant behavior and immunity to stress. Because of this, psychopaths often find themselves in these types of positions, and then have an easier time climbing the corporate ladder and obtaining positions of great power. This is where they can do real damage to society as we see it today.

Are Psychopaths Running The World?

Not only as corporate heads do psychopaths find success in our modern-day society, but also within our governments and political system — often as front-line politicians. This may come as a shock to you, but when you really look at some of the atrocities that are taking place on our planet, and if you’ve ever wondered how things that are so inhumane could actually be happening, well, therein lies part of your answer.

When you consider the war, genocide, senseless murder of civilians, treatment of the indigenous cultures of the world, chemicals in our food, air and water supply, acts of “terrorism”, war crimes and so many other unjust and cruel actions which are often instigated by our political leaders, it becomes easy to see how psychopaths actually fit the requirements for these types of roles quite well. As mentioned before they are masters of deception, pathological liars and often quite charming.

Many soldiers go to war and because they are conditioned to believe that they are fighting an enemy in the name of peace. They do as they are told and commit these heinous acts against other human beings. The reason why so many soldiers suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder is because it is not within human nature to murder other humans, and especially innocent civilians.

We already know how many politicians are crooked, but perhaps its time to start looking at them with the psychopath checklist in mind so that we can be better equipped to protect not only ourselves but our society from their malicious acts.

But Can’t We Help Them?

It is natural for anyone who is involved in spiritual work to have compassion for these individuals and feel compelled to help them overcome their psychopathic behavior. However, most research has pointed towards the understanding that psychopaths are born, not made and therefore cannot be cured. This is one of the main differences that separates sociopaths from psychopaths. Another is that sociopaths have a conscience, albeit a weak one, and will often justify something they know to be wrong. By contrast, psychopaths will believe that their actions are justified and feel no remorse for any harm done. Sociopaths are made, and have a higher likelihood of overcoming their current condition. However, many of those with sociopathic behavior will find themselves in similar corporate positions.

Hare’s research discovered that by attempting to heal or help a psychopath, you might actually be strengthening their cunning abilities, as they will find a way to manipulate you into believing that they are remorseful and understand how their actions were wrong.
