Understanding Evil

This is a bit esoteric and psychological, but ties into the author’s elitist overview. He takes it further into the bizarre murkiness of “Pizzagate”, but I’ve largely eliminated most of that. He seems to be touching the inner thread that connects randomness into focused reality. In so doing, satanic inspiration becomes evident. Likewise, the liberty movement and conscience informed by biblical doctrine becomes the antidote.

Funny how that happens!

***********************************************************************

. . . My fascination with economics and socio-political events has always been rooted in the human element. That is to say, while economics is often treated as a mathematical and statistical field, it is also driven by psychology. To know the behavior of man is to know the future of all his endeavors, good or evil. . .

I will not be grappling with this issue from a particularly religious perspective. Evil applies to everyone regardless of their belief system, or even their lack of belief. Evil is secular in its influence.

The first and most important thing to understand is this — evil is NOT simply a social or religious construct, it is an inherent element of the human psyche. Carl Gustav Jung was one of the few psychologists in history to dare write extensively on the issue of evil from a scientific perspective as well as a metaphysical perspective. . . ( titled ‘Jung On Evil’, edited by Murray Stein) . . .

To summarize, Jung found that much of the foundations of human behavior are rooted in inborn psychological contents or “archetypes.”  Contrary to the position of Sigmund Freud, Jung argued that while our environment may affect our behavior to a certain extent, it does not make us who we are. Rather, we are born with our own individual personality and grow into our inherent characteristics over time. Jung also found that there are universally present elements of human psychology. That is to say, almost every human being on the planet shares certain truths and certain natural predilections.

The concepts of good and evil, moral and immoral, are present in us from birth and  are . . . shared subjective experiences.  It is this observable psychological fact (among others) that leads me to believe in the idea of a creative design. . .

(T)hen it would follow that there may very well be a reason for all the trials and horrors that we experience as a species.  Our lives, our failures and our accomplishments are not random and meaningless.  We are striving toward something, whether we recognize it or not. . .

Evil does not exist in a vacuum; with evil there is always good, if one looks for it in the right places.

Most people are readily equipped to recognize evil when they see it directly.  What they are not equipped for and must learn from environment is how to recognize evil disguised as righteousness. . . Inherent conscience, though, IS the greater good, and any ideology that steps away from the boundaries of conscience will inevitably lead to disaster.

The concept of globalism is one of these ideologies that crosses the line of conscience and pontificates to us about a “superior method” of living.  It relies on taboo, rather than moral compass, and there is a big difference between the two. . . The ends NEVER justify the means. . .  A monster that devours in the name of peace is still a monster.

Globalism tells us that the collective is more important than the individual, that the individual owes society a debt and that fealty to society in every respect is the payment for that debt.  But . . . society is only ever as healthy as the individuals within it, that society is only as free and vibrant as the participants.  As the individual is demeaned and enslaved, the collective crumbles into mediocrity.

Globalism also tells us that humanity’s greatest potential cannot be reached without collectivism and centralization. . .  Eventually, they will tell us that individualism represents another nefarious “border” that prevents the group from becoming fully realized. . . The environment becomes the arbiter of decency, rather than conscience, and whoever controls the environment, by extension, becomes god. . .

It is the abandonment of inborn conscience that ultimately results in evil. In my view, this is exactly why the so called “elites” are pressing for globalism in the first place. Their end game is not just centralization of all power into a one world edifice, but the suppression and eradication of conscience, and thus, all that is good.

To see where this leads we must look at the behaviors of the elites themselves, which brings us to “Pizzagate.”. . .

Accusations of pedophilia seem to follow the globalists and elitist politicians wherever they go. This does not surprise me. They often exhibit characteristics of narcissism and psychopathy, but their ideology of moral relativity is what would lead to such horrible crimes. . .

When one abandons conscience, one also in many respects abandons empathy and love.  Without these elements of our psyche there is no happiness. Without them, there is nothing left but desire and gluttony.

Narcissists in particular are prone to use other people as forms of entertainment and fulfilment without concern for their humanity.  They . . . are prone to target and abuse the most helpless of victims in order to generate a feeling of personal power. . .

I would say that pedophilia is a natural progression of the elitist mind set; for children are the easiest and most innocent victim source, not to mention the most aberrant and forbidden, and thus the most desirable for a psychopathic deviant embracing evil impulses.

Beyond this is the even more disturbing prospect of cultism. . .  When one confronts the problem of evil head on, one quickly realizes that evil is within us all. There will always be an internal battle in every individual. Organized evil, though, is in fact the ultimate danger, and it is organized evil that must be eradicated.

For organized evil to be defeated, there must be organized good. I believe the liberty movement in particular is that good; existing in early stages, not yet complete, but good none the less.  Our championing of the non-aggression principle and individual liberty is conducive to respect for privacy, property and life.  Conscience is a core tenet of the liberty ideal, and the exact counter to organized elitism based on moral relativity.

Recognize and take solace that though we live in dark times, and evil men roam free, we are also here. We are the proper response to evil, and we have been placed here at this time for a reason. Call it fate, call it destiny, call it coincidence, call it god, call it whatever you want, but the answer to evil is us.

  1. Great post, Curtis.

    The critical task of getting people to recognize the evil that’s around them is so much trickier than it sounds. As Brandon Smith pointed out, “[people] are not equipped…to recognize evil disguised as righteousness…” Indeed when I suggest to anyone not involved in the daily blogging on these subjects that people like Barack Obama or Harry Reid or Hillary Clinton are evil, they’ll usually look at me like I have two heads. They think I’m being hyperbolic. To them evil is ISIS. Evil is Hitler. It’s slash and burn. They don’t recognize enslavement through socialism as evil. They don’t see out-of-control government as tyranny and those who lead that government as tyrants. The Left has trained them well so as not to face any serious pushback to their evil plans. Works pretty well, right?

  2. Glad y’all enjoyed it!

    Yes, a lot of “conscience” is learned, usually from parents and, horrors!, schools. But by my understanding of Jung, those are mere sharpeners, or focusing agents, to make more effective and coherent the internal natural glimmer. Even children know that taking things because of superior power is wrong, though they’ll do it anyway, because they “want it”. They know it is wrong because it likely happened to them as well, and it didn’t feel right.

    The reach of the global elites, as well as their amoral lust for power, is all about the concentration of wealth and power with the concomitant subjugation of the “useful idiot” masses. If their goal is achieved, the greater number of those will be liquidated as excess garbage.

    So much for holiday cheer! LOL!

  3. An interesting read, Curtis. I too believe that there is both good and evil in all of us and our early upbringing has a lot to do with the development of a conscience and how to interpret what our internal conscience is telling us. Some, unfortunately, learn to ignore that better self and allow the evil side to control their actions while others trust that inner guardian angel to keep us on the right road. I believe that our parents (if we were lucky to have good parents) were instrumental in learning how to differentiate between good and evil and even to help in recognizing evil disguised as good.

    Obviously, external influences also have a major impact on developing a conscience that guides us or one that cowers in the shadows and seldom speaks up. The global thing is also spot on. If we allow the globalists to guide our actions in the future, there won’t be much that is out-of-bounds except for speaking out about the “leaders” or going against their will.

    Good stuff, Curtis.

  4. Great piece, Curtis, and it’s amazing how it mirrors our government at this point in time. There’s always been evil in the world, but it seems to have metastasized in the last few decades, not just in the government but worldwide. Everywhere you look these days there is evil. The worst are those ISIS savages who epitomize twisted and evil.

    This phrase stood out – ‘society is only ever as healthy as the individuals within it’- because it seems to me there has been an increase in the number of sick and twisted people being thrust upon us that we’re supposed to accept as normal.

    In the good versus evil, the good guys could do with a little help right about now, and our government would be a good place to start.
