    ”…Fact is we live in a Pathocracy. Definition: A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people. A totalitarian form of government in which absolute political power is held by a psychopathic elite, and their effect on the people is such that the entire society is ruled and motivated by purely pathological values. A pathocracy can take many forms and can insinuate itself covertly into any seemingly just system or ideology. As such it can masquerade under the guise of a democracy or theocracy as well as more openly oppressive regimes…”

    ’Marianne Williamson and the Elephant in the Living Room’
    By Bernhard Guenther

    ”There is one topic that stands like the proverbial elephant in our collective living room, still unacknowledged, ignored or misunderstood by many people. It’s the underlying issue for our society and world’s problems. This is the topic of Psychopathy, especially Psychopaths in places of power and how it affects our world and society at large. More and more research and studies have been published that prove the existence of this intra-species predator, yet it still is being avoided and not sincerely studied and looked at by many well-meaning people who work actively trying to make this world a better place. They focus on the symptoms, but not the underlying causes.

    Do you know the difference between social progress and socialism?

    A couple of weeks ago I attended a talk in Topanga Canyon by Marianne Williamson who is running for congress. I was reluctant to go, knowing about the futility to change the political system through the system. I’ve written about it before: “Voting, Cognitive Dissonance and Fear of the Unknown” as well as “The Illusion of Choice“. However, considering that I like some of her past work and we have shown a clip of her talk at a festival in our film “Love, Reality, and the Time of Transition” I decided to see what she had to say.

    In her talk she made some good points, in particular about the necessity to do conscious work within and without, not shutting off from the world but actively engaging in creating change and facing our world problems head on. Much of what she said reflected what she talked about at “Lightning in a Bottle” in 2011, mentioned above. However, since she’s officially running for congress her tone has changed a bit and she seemed to have taken on some typical political lingo in an effort to win support for her campaign.

    Anyone who still believes that we live in a democracy in the true sense of its meaning lives in a bubble of denial and wishful thinking. Williamson appears to agree with this since stressed that our democracy is at risk. However, there is a lot of wishful thinking about trying to do this through the system itself. For example, assuming that the majority of people could ever have an influence on law making and presidential elections given the way our society and institutions are controlled, in particular the press and education, it’s just too easy to manipulate the people’s choices and opinions. It’s an example of Stockholm Syndrome writ large. In fact, “democracy” is the perfect tool or “cover” to control people, giving them the illusion of free choice on a base level (like voting for your congress representative) but it’s ‘grid-lock’ at higher levels of power, a two-party system where decisions have already been made before any voter gets to ‘vote’ on them. Ironically, Williamson also acknowledged that we need to get away from this two-party system, but she did not address any topics that are actually at the root of this set-up…”
