Dear PPCLI - When folk no longer object to bullies ("Just ignore him!") we lose our discernment and "nice" folk who are evil escape.

Long/Short: folk confound "sociopath" and "psychopath" ... so the psychopath (who is often charming, even charismatic) grins as he pollutes and wrecks havoc.
Similarly, folk are down on red-neck culture because of what cracKKKers have done and continue doing.
Bottom line? the truly evil walk freely among us.

"Nice" folk typically are not. They're self-serving and malignant. Mundane malice distorts everything in our society.

Typical arsehole behavior: Turkey's Erdogan offends natural justice then attacks PKK for protecting Kurds' interests.
Turkey's president says Kurdish attacks on Turkish targets make peace impossible, as Nato members discuss its campaigns against border militants.

Decent folk ... is what keeps the world ticking over.

You know how some shows ... from the 2nd minute you know they suck?
"Banished" is opposite of that.
Kudos to the director. And cast and team as well, of course.
Banished is a new 7-part series on CBC Television, premiering July 27, 2015 at 9pm. In 1788, Britain banished its unwanted citizens & convicts to Australia. Among the first convicts to be exiled are close friends Elizabeth Quinn (MyAnna Buring), Tommy Barrett (Julian Rhind-Tutt) and James ...

How stupid is this: with new bilateral deal, Turkey attacks ISIL in Syria and ... get this ... Kurds in Iraq.
Way to go, Uncle Sam!

"If it's not an iPhone, then ..."
Then maybe it wasn't built by slave labor in work camps.

If our economy were irrational (which it is), would anybody care?
So: folk aren't moved by self-interest. It's less intelligent than that.
My "worst case" intuition? folk are moved immediately by motives that are closer to sneak-thief passive-aggression than anything like self-interest. Moved by something much more like bitter resentment ... a low-grade snarling appetite for the ill.

Unprincipled: doing the decent thing only if it's fun. Or profitable.
That's the people I live with. Your society.

I wasted my life finding a better way for reasonable, decent people to make reasonable, decent decisions.
w000ps ... no audience. no market. no "demand pull". nobody gives a flying fuck.

p.s. no accident in this; I went double of nothing to find out if you really were whores and cowards.
Guess what. You're whores and cowards.

And you'll be angry at me for saying so. That's the way guilty people react to truth.

Before invading Tibet, China invaded East Turkistan, home of Uighurs, who are muslim.
It's as though China takes special pleasure in crushing them. And we do nothing as they're crushed.
The BBC News website looks at western China's ethnic Uighurs, blamed by Beijing for fomenting unrest in Xinjiang.

Bourgeois society is about ignoring injustice large and small, near and far.
Yuppies are those who manage that society.

p.s. those lies that the "masters" use to deceive us? it's the yuppies' responsibility to produce them. Is why they are so well rewarded.

What I commented on the FB post: "Long / short: "nice" people very usually give in to bullies. Day in, day out, for weeks and months and years and decades.
Mundane malevolence and self-perjury."

p.s. if someone's actually interested in all this, see "People of the Lie" by M. Scott Peck.
Blaming "mental illness" is a cop-out -- and one that lets us avoid talking about race, guns, hatred and terrorism
