Cultivating the New World Order
The conservative libertarian writer Paul Craig Roberts has posted an article, "The New Colonialism: Washington's Pursuit of World Hegemony" that has received much attention from the alternative-news blogosphere. In this article, I want to comment on the story from a larger point of view. Robert's perspectives are probably the last piece of the puzzle that we've been working on putting together here at DB. With his courageous input, we now have a clearer vision now of how the New World Order is coming together and how it will function. That sounds like a large statement, but in this article I will try to explain it and justify my presentation.
It is important to understand such things. If one does not understand the world, one is doomed to make numerous mistakes in investing and even in life itself. There is the old saying, referring specifically to software: "garbage in, garbage out." If one's INPUTS are wrong, then one's conclusions may be too. In this fraught day and age one should work steadily at refining one's inputs to make sure that the best and most foolproof conclusions are reached in all areas of existence. It's actually a survival issue.
So let us begin. We need to start with the idea that there is an Anglo-American power elite trying to establish a world government. We cannot necessarily explain WHY anyone would want to do such a thing. But apparently someone does. Actually more than a "someone" – a handful of impossibly wealth banking families, located mainly in the one-square-mile City of London.
These families – and one family in particular – apparently have control of a worldwide central banking apparatus. With the ability to print money-from-nothing around the world, the Rothschilds have amassed a fortune that may be in excess of US$300 trillion. (Nobody really knows.) In the 1800s, such an impossible amount of money gave rise to the concept of "money power." This was an implacable force that controlled the destinies of countries and even continents. Money power caused wars to take place and elevated certain men to high places while casting down others.
In the 20th century, as the power elite gained more control over the mainstream media the term money power went out of fashion. There was a time in the late 20th century when one couldn't even question the functioning of central banks or discuss the fundamentals of currency and money. These concepts were simply not available for contemplation and anyone who tried to analyze them within the context of a larger philosophical or free-market economic framework was running the risk of becoming professionally – if not personally – marginalized.
Times have changed. Ben Bernanke is going to start to give press conferences to emphasize the transparency of the Federal Reserve. You can bet he wouldn't be doing so if he didn't have to. The Fed has taken an enormous beating over the past few years and Bernanke has done what he can to counteract negative publicity. But how do you justify printing money from nothing? Or worse still creating a trillion dollars at a time at the touch of a button and then giving it to your cronies so that their badly run financial businesses don't go broke. You can't. A press conference or two won't help.
Ben Bernanke has been forced into such PR stunts because of the Internet itself, a truth telling device that has allowed millions in America and Europe to understand their worlds better, and in more detail. As people have found out about the huge Ponzi scheme called central banking, indignation has built. We would tend to believe that the anger has not yet crested. The elite seems to believe that if economic circumstances get better people will go back to being the way they were, disinterested in finance and uninterested generally about what is evidently and obviously an ever-advancing one-world government.
The problem with this is that if Western economies become too healthy, the rush to world government will be stymied. It seems a delicate balancing act. There must be SOME chaos and confusion (including food and water insecurity) or people will not see the need for a global currency, a global political system, a global court, etc. But there cannot be too MUCH or events may spin out of control and then all the money in the world will not be able to control unrest.
Is there a plan, then, for a global currency? It would seem so. We've charted its evolution in numerous articles. The International Monetary Fund has presented several White Papers on how such currency could be built out of its SDR program. Additionally the IMF believes it would make a good central bank.
Influential, billionaire financier George Soros agrees with some of this. He too has stated that he believes that SDRs would make a good global currency. Additionally George Soros is planning a "new" Bretton Woods conference in which he hopes to gain approval from countries and top bankers to move toward a one-world currency. French President Nicolas Sarkozy has the same idea and wants to set up his own Bretton Woods conference to discuss a new worldwide currency. It could be SDRs or it could be something else. But it will be global.
The new, global currency is to be accompanied apparently by the emergent, global political infrastructure that is being implemented piece by piece. This includes the UN, the International Criminal Court at the Hague (suddenly one of three such Courts of Justice) and of course the World Health Organization (WHO). The UN is increasingly involved in military activities around the world and in "keeping the peace." For larger actions, NATO itself is called upon and in fact is currently conducting live military campaigns in Afghanistan and Libya.
There is apparently a universal energy policy as well that features a variety of facilities to diminish "carbon-based global warming" and to encourage alternative forms of energy such as solar and wind. Meanwhile, all over the world, nation-states have suddenly formed regional cooperatives and have plans to issue regional money printed (created out of thin air) by regional central banks. This is taking place in Africa, South American and Asia. In some cases (Africa) the money is already in use. An "African Union" similar to the EU is planned. And so is a South American one and presumably sooner or later one in Asia.
Roberts contribution to all this is to put the current unrest in the Middle East and North Africa into perspective. What we are observing in Libya is the rebirth of colonialism, he writes. But it is different than the colonialism of several hundred years ago. This time, European nation states are not competing with each other. "The new colonialism operates under the cover of the world community, which means NATO and those countries that cooperate with it. ... Today NATO provides European troops on behalf of American hegemony. Washington pursues world hegemony under the guises of selective ‘humanitarian intervention' and ‘bringing freedom and democracy to oppressed peoples.'"
From Roberts' point of view, the Libyan war is a perfect example of this hegemony. Not, perhaps, anticipating the regime change in Tunisia and Egypt, Washington responded with a more muscular approach to Libya's unrest, encouraging and even cultivating it, he explains. "Khalifa Hifter, a suspected Libyan CIA asset for the last 20 years, has gone back to Libya to head the rebel army," he points out. Washington will be more in control of events this time.
Why Libya? Gaddafi, he writes, became a target because he wouldn't play along with this new imperialism. He declined to be part of the new US Africa Command, seeing it rightly as an update of the old colonial strategy – divide and conquer. It was President George W. Bush who created the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) back in 2007. And AFRICOM's mission is a "unified approach" to creating stability and security in the region. It integrates African efforts "with those of other U.S. government departments and agencies, as ... other international partners." Nearly 50 countries are now involved in AFRICOM, though not Libya, Sudan, Eritrea, Zimbabwe, and Ivory Coast.
What of these five countries? Sudan has just been split in two and the Ivory Coast has recently been involved in fierce fighting over a disputed election. The man who has been declared the winner of the Ivory Coast elections has close ties to Western socio-political machinery including the UN and the IMF. It is probably safe to say that if he assumes office, the Ivory Coast will soon become part of AFRICOM as well.
Perhaps Roberts most controversial point is his analysis of AFRICOM's key strategic objective, which is the defeat of the "Al-Qaeda network." Ten years after "the war on terror" began, an "omnipotent al-Qaeda now ranges across Algeria, Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia in Africa, across the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the UK and is such a threat within the United States itself as to require a $56 billion ‘Homeland Security' annual budget. He then calls the al-Qaeda threat, "a hoax as likely as not," and points out that it has become "Washington's best excuse for intervening in the domestic affairs of other countries and for subverting American civil liberties."
Washington is not deterred by the disastrous wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and continues to exhibit the ambition of empire. It can pursue this goal because the US mainstream media in particular is not doing its job. American citizens are not informed of the truth about their country's military disasters, nor the scope of the empire with over 700 military bases around the world (and probably more if you count CIA and FBI outposts).
For Roberts such a sprawling empire is insupportable. The US is broke, basically bankrupt, and its internal composition is changing as it doesn't have the necessary civil infrastructure to sustain its borders. Whole swathes of the Southwest are being repopulated by Hispanic ethnicities and soon parts of the US may fall back into the hands of Mexico. Demographically if not militarily, it is "game over" for these regions, he writes.
All this is a startling blunt analysis by Roberts, a former high-ranking official of the Reagan administration, though some of it is not quite accurate from my point of view. I have already pointed out for instance that the current Middle Eastern wars and regime changes are partially aimed at sustaining the convertibility of the dollar for oil. But in the longer term there seems no doubt that the Anglo-American monetary elite wants to evolve from a dollar system into a larger and more formal world currency.
Roberts' statement about Washington being caught off-guard by regime change in Tunisia and Egypt doesn't ring quite true to me either. We've covered both of these "color revolutions" and pointed out significant Anglosphere elite involvement starting with the support of the American-sponsored youth organization AYM which trained many of the young protestors (along with the CIA apparently) in tactics of peaceful insurgency that sparked the mass protest that proved so effective.
Of course, if one grants Washington's involvement in Tunisia and Egypt, then Roberts' argument becomes even stronger. It is, in fact, the final piece of the "one world" puzzle. The pattern seems to me unmistakable and even irrefutable. There is in the world today a one-world political order led by the UN, an emergent court system located in the Hague, regional political and currency regions that should serve as stepping-stones to a single political and economic union, worldwide and, finally, a series of actions in the Middle East and Africa intended to replace uncooperative regimes with ones receptive to globalization.
Again, if you put the Middle Eastern military actions into this context, they fit right into the Anglosphere's program for building a New World Order. Every part of the globe is being prepared for a fuller initiation of this powerful, all encompassing sociopolitical, economic and military structure. To continue to proclaim as most in the Western mainstream media do regularly that such talk constitutes "conspiracy theory" is increasingly a hard argument to sustain.
This is the gift then that Roberts has given us, a way of fitting current military actions into the larger trend of emergent global government. Regardless of any rhetoric to the contrary, what is evolving is so evident and obvious that further arguing about it should be considered a waste of breath.
Certainly, these conflicts are not just about oil – or even the sustaining of the dollar reserve and its oil convertibility (though that's part of it as I have previously pointed out). But in the larger sense, Washington's serial wars – especially the one in Afghanistan – are surely wars of CONQUEST, designed to remove the final tribal impediments to world government. If the war goes badly (as in Afghanistan) the fall back is to build a series of isolated fortresses and settle in for an indefinite occupation. But the militarization proceeds apace and is neither coincidental nor random.
I thank Paul Craig Roberts for giving me the additional insights necessary to arrive at such conclusions. Those stopping by to glance at this article may yet deny them or believe they are simply paranoid remarks of someone opposed to the greater centralization of world government. But it is my view the current expansion now taking place inevitably implies a loss of freedom and individual initiative – and a more totalitarian environment as well. Big government is necessarily more inflexible, insistent and generally imperious than small government.
If one wishes to live in the real world in all its complexities and hidden agendas, then such trends need to be confronted and analyzed. If we do not see the world as it is, then we cannot take necessary action to deal with inevitable consequences. The ancient Greeks had a wonderful saying: "Know thyself." In this complex time one should try to "know" the world as as it is actually becoming.
The ambitions of the Anglo-American elite are truly mad in my view; and their plans likely are neither feasible nor practical even perhaps in the short term. But they are apparently bound to carry them forward and this means there will surely be a sustained period of confusion and even chaos, not just in certain far-flung areas of the world but throughout the West too. These events will affect people's personal wealth as well as the safety of their families. It is important to see the world for what it is. Paul Craig Roberts does, and he is right to do so.

Money printing means nothing less than taking Money away. After third round of quantitative easing and completely nacionalisacion I think it is enough. And people were very patient. Most people don't want to much.
Globalization from beginning was planned on European power elite tables to bring freedom and liberties on the knees. Lock what I brought- bubbled up new marked who produces somewhere else what cant be done under worker right legislation in odl economies.
Globalization was thought out to make slavery to destroy America and Europe. To control everyone on earth with an fascist machine like pull through impertinency which should any wisdom shake his head
Myself I I belief in trade between nations but trades does not bring freedom. Bring trade with slavery freedom in history?? And where is difference now. Somewhere else someone produces under cheap conditions what takes in Europe and America first jobs out than liberties.
One world currency. it will be a big prison for each one of us no matter where we are. Lock how much wars the world is in and so much hunger for the ambition form 500 evil grand daddies and few markeds who want more and more and more . they worry for humankind after being the riches persons on earth- I will tell you how they worry- they make fascism here communism there few fights in between less people more blood.
I am sorry that us is high jacked form former superpowers and all kind of infiltrates, it happens everywhere. A global Gestapo who controls everyone and very soon everyone will get his chip.
There was nothing bad about to fusion ate marked from democracies ' but idea is not working in Europe north pays for south and conflicts are in upraise.
Who ever thought he can globalize marked by not thinking on people was miscalculating.
Just in the hypothetical case when everything gets melted to one country and literally there exists no middle class anymore only poor chipped persons and a few rich- who wants to be chief and how when he passes away can he close his eyes.
How freaked out a mind must be 'and how less respect for humans he must have driven by anger rage and deadly ambition- driven by evil.
Poor rich souls and like in communism they have everything an 99.9999999percent nothing. Everyone is same only a vie w are mire same. I never found a reasonable explanation why a human person converts in having wishes like this. Hitler had it napoleon and others. They all failed.
Evil will fail also this time and I think it will not run so well to blame others for that because persons read, have internet have time to see what is going on. 99.999999999persent from human kind is literally hostage take from this gangsters.

The apathy of Earth's humanoids is such they abhor taking any
positive stands. The typical ostrich head in the sand. The old
monkey metaphor "HEAR NO EVIL- SEE NO EVIL- SPEAK NO EVIL".They will be astonished when they are swept asunder; As were the great multitudes of Jews in Hitler's Germany. The comfortable and affluent masses always wish to maintain the status quo; while the needy and ignorant are unaware of the status. both are annihilated. The ultimate power is control of the masses.

This article is very interesting because further emphasizes the prophetic message in which Babylon the Great(the beast ruling all the kingdoms of world) will be formed, aka the New World Order... Yet the question remains who is the beast(aka. little horn) who is developing and will rule this worlwide Click to view linkA is only its front man(as per Rev. 13 last part)....who is behind the elite, corporations and royalties of the world which are imposing this New World Order? answer= Daniel 8, 11-12 tell us that the power behind ruling and conquering is Papal Rome....
3 empires are described as occupying the prophetic timeline of the 2,300 years(starting from MedoPersia the ram around 500B, then Greece the Hegoat, and the next Rome as the Little horn(aka the Beast), and ending with the loss of power of Papal Rome (second phase of the Roman Empire) at the end of the middle ages(1798AD)...which is the same of power that is to return during the time of the end to established Babylon the Great, the New World Order as per Rev. 13, and 17, Daniel 11-12.
Papal Rome is behind the conquest of the world kingdoms, aided and abetted by USA as the lamblike beast of Rev. 13 and the 10 kings of Revelation 17 representing the European kingdoms and allied kingdoms of the world...!

The cornerstone of this world government plan is in United Nations Agenda 21, signed by George H. W. Bush in 1992 and actively supported by every President and Congress since.
If you study the history of Agenda 21 and the comments of its supporters, it is all about Sustainable Consumption and Production to save the planet, which can only occur through surrender of sovereignty and freedoms in exchange for collectivist communism, social justice, redistribution of wealth, relinquishment of private property rights and micro management of every phase of human existence.
If you want to connect the dots, study Agenda 21. It is well laid out at the UN website. The MSM won't tell you about it because it is the end of America and it won't sell well if it was exposed. It is certainly real and is being actively implemented worldwide. If you care to know, just read it.
Good luck, comrades.

David, the world-improvers always seem to have some kind of agenda. We hear lots of pronouncements from israeli leaders from Ben-Gurion to Sharon. I won't argue that they are sincere in their plans. Kissinger wants to do away with LOTS of us useless eaters;
Click to view link
Don't forget to read the "Iron Mountain Report" Can't leave out Hegel, Marx and all the rest.
Market realities and human nature are incompatible with many of these plans. If you examine the financiers and perpetrators of the Bolshevik revolution, you can see people behind the scenes pulling the levers. The reality of the U.S.S.R. was far different that the world improvers planned. It collapsed because it was non-viable.
The absolute stagnation of a command economy and socialism is unavoidable. Even if "they" created a world where most of the work was done by machines, mankind would still be unhappy.
Men are programmed to have a central focus in their lives. If you go to Cuba, you'll see tons of people who are educated but, have no opportunity to work. People need a center to their lives. I want no part of a world GOV implemented by a theocracy.

LOOK NO FURTHER THAN DAVID BEN GURION'S 1962 PROPHECY 'WORLD GOVERNMENT IN JERUSALEM AFTER 1987'
THE UNITED NATIONS AND IT'S POLICIES ARE THE PROPERTY OF ZIOINSM
In Life Magazine and Look Magazine of the 16th of January 1962, Mr. David Ben Gurion, Zionist atheist and first prime minister of Israel stated while still in office :-
" The image of the world in 1987 as traced in my imagination: The Cold War will be a thing of the past. Internal pressure of the constantly growing intelligentsia in Russia for more freedom and the pressure of the masses for raising their living standards may lead to a gradual democratization of the Soviet Union. [Glasnost and Perestroika were right on time and going according to plan]
On the other hand, the increasing influence of the workers and farmers, and the rising Political importance of men of science, may transform the United States into a welfare state with a planned economy. Western and Eastern Europe will become a federation of autonomous states having a Socialist and democratic regime. With the exception of the U.S.S.R. as a federated Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance at whose disposal will be an international police force.
All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah.
Higher education will be the right of every person in the world. A pill to prevent pregnancy will slow down the explosive natural increase in China and India. And by 1987 the average life-span of man will reach 100 years."
EVERYTHING HAS GONE THE WAY THEY PLANNED ' IT IS IN THE FINAL STAGES ' THE SUB PRIME COLLAPSE IS PART OF IT.
IN 1948 He also admitted that : "The United Nations is a Jewish concept from A to Z".
NOTE: The UN's first act was to establish the State of Israel, which was its primary objective.

Dr. Debra, a graph of oil vs gold shows a very steady horizontal line. The Saudi leader personally counted out the 30,000 ounces of silver that was paid to him for the original exploration many decades ago. The U.S. even minted special gold coins produced explicitly to pay for oil. FOFOA has info and pics of these coins. The Saudis have stated that they would prefer to leave the oil in the ground rather than accept JUST worthless paper for it.
I expect this link to be broken. I can't say if FOFOA does or not,,, can't recall. He does believe that Saudi received part paper and part gold for selling us oil. Since oil was sold exclusively in dollars, the dollar was often referred to as the petro-dollar. We attacked any country that tried to sell oil in other-than-dollars.
As I mentioned, silver can't be allowed to go to the stratosphere. It would ruin many industries. The SAME is true for oil. Only gold is unimportant enough to be adequately repriced without causing great damage to the economy. This would mesh well with the desires of OPEC.
There is a JOKER in the deck. If you study ALL of the investigation into cold fusion, you will see that transmutation is a normal side-effect. According to the inventor, John Bedini, both Russia and America are manufacturing half of their gold from transmutation. John worked out the process himself and received important visitors from ?GOV?
The information is presented in his video on "petro-voltaics.
I mentioned this on the comments at FOFOA and got quite a reaction. Monetary stability is crucial for commerce. Gold is the only tangible that can bring stability without causing damage.
Posted by Dr. Debra on 04/05/11 09:17 AM
@ Dan B, my understanding is that FOFOA links the price of gold to oil somehow. If this is true, can you explain it somewhat here?
Posted by Dan B on 04/05/11 12:33 AM
RE: re-linking with gold. There is a writer who goes under the nom de plum of FOFOA. He is the major proponent of this relink and refers to it as "freegold". There is a quality to his writing that I very rarely see. He can boil up a kettle of various logical arguments and distill a rationale that is "elegant",, if you understand the term as it applies to theories.
He will pull ideas, laws, proofs and precedents from the most obscure corners of creation. He seems to follow in the footsteps of "another" and friend-of-another. The source of his acronym is friend-of-friend-of-another. He is truly brilliant, solicits donations, and says that if his blog fails, he will have to go to flipping burgers. His analysis is rarely anything but brilliant.
He clearly posits a one-time re-valuation to accomplish the relinking. He posits a re-pricing to about $ 46,000 an ounce. He supports this estimate. The bankers have proved once again that the world MUST have something that brings discipline. Commerce can NOT survive if no one can project if they will incur a profit or a loss in any given future enterprise.
Just as in Bretton Woods, the PTB will revert to using gold as a reference. It will NOT be silver. Silver is FAR too important as a commodity to let it's price run away. Gold is of minor importance as a commodity so, a price spike won't have a detrimental effect on industry.
The price of gold will have to be bumped up enormously to accommodate the flood of currency in circulation. There is far too much paper-wealth in the world to be "represented" by gold if it';s value is too low.
Currency will still be paper. Gold will take over the "store of value" function from paper. Paper will be for transactional use only.
The eternal lack of discipline will tend to cause a resistance to the SDR or Bancor. Who knows what trials and tribulations will result from a changeover to a disciplined system?
The most important question of Fiat is: who is the first-spender.
The NWO in it's embodiment as central banks is pushing hard for hacking away the the anchors of the safety net. I'm sure that world-GOV was spoon fed to all our simpleton leaders over the years as a way to stop all wars. It's unlikely, for the time being, that world-GOV would refrain from war. If the safety net is cut loose, I suppose first-spender would be the war-machine.
In the long run, the PTBs may very well do away with war. Instead of war, we'll have discipline.
We should not forget the relationship between the "Morlocks" and the "Eloi".
That could very well be our future under a one-world GOV.
Another alternative could be ANTS. We've all read about the ants that "farm" aphids.
Imagine the elites as ants and us sheeple reduced to aphids to be farmed.
I don't believe that humans can be squeezed into a box that tight. There will be a lot of strife in the attempt.

@ Williams3 you said:
Now what about us? You came up with a good description of the process and game this low-life plays. What can we do to counteract and defend against these predators and make sure that others do not join these gangs?
Me: I suppose that is the question of the hour, isn't it? I wish I knew. I think there are simple but effective things we should do, such as refuse to participate in a 2 party system, which was set up to keep us focused on the other party as the enemy while our wealth is stripped away from us, but if I had the answer, I would definitely shout it from the rooftops!
@ Jim Lauk, I am familiar with ponerology, but more specifically, I am familiar with psychopathy (also known as sociopathy), too intimately, I'm afraid. And I DO think there is a lesson here. One way to identify a sociopath is when they do something that is really, really "off." For example, a pleasant, thoroughly charming man flies into a rage when his coffee is served cold, then immediately goes back to his usual kind self. What I have learned is to PAY ATTENTION to those moments -- those moments reveal who the person really is. We are tempted, in our confusion, to "write it off," saying he must have had a bad day, knowing that does not explain the behavior but having no other explanation. When something is "off" -- in a person, in a scene, in a news story -- we need to train ourselves to immediately focus on that. It sounds easy but it is not. We have so much more access to the truth than we beleive if we just listen to our intuition, which is really just facts filed away. Being able to do that is why many of us are "awake," and continuing to sharpen that skill will serve us well in the future.

Roberts is right on track. Obama's action do not make sense unless put in the context of promoting the one world order. He certainly is doing all he can to bring down the USA which is necessary to shift the economic power away from the USA. Example: Using the US military in Libia Obama did not consult Congress which he is required by law to do showing he does not respect the US government or laws, but he did get UN approval for his actions showing that he is more aligned to promiting the UN/NWO than he is defending and upholding the US.
The development of "unions" EU, Afrcian Union, Asian union, and the other world government promoting organizations like NATO, UN, etc. certainly play into the development of the NWO.
It appears from this that the emerging world powers will be the EU, Africa, Russia and Asia lead by China as prophecied in the Bible!!!

Be advised: Steve Forbes, March 28 2011 Forbes magazine edition, Page 19 states : "When the dollar is relinked to gold--which will happen within a few years--nominal long-term interest rates won't be much different than what they are today." That's RE-LINKED to gold...why isnt anyone else saying this??....JB

The 1st problem is the "west", comprising the 'governments' of western Europe, USA and UK. The 2nd problem is the fake and small country implanted in the Islamic heartland.
This is an accurate and garbage-free definition of reality of the 21st century.

And how would you refer to the West? An agglomeration of physical terrains inhabited by naked apes of various shapes, sizes and colors using a variety of different sounds to communicate, etc.... A little awkward, not to mention off-putting.

Reading the LA Times 30 years ago, I realized they were full of crap, and either reporting 'their' side of the news or not reporting the real news – never read it again after that. And then the internet arrived in 1995 (for most of us) but its' only recently that we can get the "alternative" (read 'real') news.
The only way the world is going to change is for lies to be exposed and truth replacing it – and the Daily Bell and other sites are our flashlights that exposes the lies and provide truth.
Thanks to the editors and bloggers for all the info that enlightens us. Continue On and spread the word.

@Dr. Debra and DB response.
I am not trained in psychiatry or psychology. However, there is a theory termed ponerology, essentially that successful psychopaths, who have no conscience or normal human feelings, protect themselves by attaining positions of power over those whom they perceive could harm them; thereby assuring their continued existence. According to that theory, or concept, psychopaths are conditioned to seek out positions of power in government, corporations, etc., that will tend to ensure their continued existence.
I doubt ponerology is a recognized in any mainstream way. Nor do I subscribe to ponerology, but it is an interesting concept. It also blends with a concept I was taught in an undergraduate course in motivation a few decades past. The concept involved three main motivators at work in us all, achievement, affiliation and power. Supposedly, we all are motivated by these three needs but normally have a predominance in just one of them.
Taken to extremes, successful psychopaths are natural candidates as power-motivated individuals, and politics, heavy-handed corporate positions and the like fit their needs quite well while the rest of us gasp at their cruelties.
Again, I make no pretense at any expertise in these matters; but, the model I was taught decades ago has explained many peculiar situations for me over the years. Perhaps that was simple rationalization on my part.
I've read the dynastic-elite are quite cruel to their own children as a form of parenting. This might entail even forcing them to kill small animals or other bizarre actions. One doesn't walk away from those kinds of traumatic experiences intact. Perhaps there really is a small number among us who do have different mechanism on guard, and are quite capable of wickedness.
Again, I am positing this as an idea, not a hard-fast theory I hold.
