You're Different, And I'm Crazy: A Racial Rant

So I question....

Without the swaying of the media, how would we draw inferences between each other? Certainly facial features, color, language, culture, "social status", location in the world will all play a part on our distinguishing one from the other, yet who has made the determination that we should then distinguish who is better than who?

I mean really, if you look at it in a literal sense it just seems so ridiculous to me as I examine the foolishness of people who stroll around, strutting their dilapidated stuff, with their retched ideology as if eternal life on Earth was presented to them on a (tarnished, unbeknownst to them) silver platter. Don't get me wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with thinking highly of one's self. Trust me, the greatness within me is unmeasurable, I must admit. However, I speak of the ignorance within the world, of people who have not taken the time to sit themselves down for a moment (which would include their egos) and examine the true greatness and beauty within others. Now that's an interesting thought.

I say, that the moment one looks over at another person, and proceeds to pick them apart, finding fault within them has just demonstrated their own silent inferiority (coupled with a dab of obsession). As per that dictionary that I despise so much, the word "threat" can be defined as follows: a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for something done or not done. ~ (Folks, just google it).

The most interesting portion of this definition is the latter, "something done or not done". In many, many cases, these inferior feelings of there being a threat is based on people's fear that the potential of "something" may happen. It's sort of like an imagined scenario gets developed on the basis of the people's own ignorance that would have them create a sorted fairy-tale to justify their reasons to retaliate against.....what? Well, that too would have to be developed in their distorted scenario. Once the story has been developed as to why others pose a threat, that group will then justify why they need to fight against their targeted "victims" (as they would have it).

My friends, this useless psychotic induced thinking fits the description of the diagnosis of a Sociopath, or one who engages in ant-social behavior. According to the DSM-IV, here are a few criteria to one being associated to the diagnoses of a Sociopath:

*Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

*Grandiose Sense of Self
*Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

*Pathological Lying
*Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

*Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
*A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

*Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
*Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

*Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility

*Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

*Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature

*Rage and abuse:

Alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others. (Hmmph, I've met a few of these in my lifetime!!)

Well, well, well, now I can see we have a problem here. There seems to be multitudes of people around the world who appear to suffer with this mental illness, yet go undiagnosed. Just think about it, from our global governmental leaders to our missing-tooth neighbors down the street, we, my friends are surrounded by people with grave cognitive challenges.

So what does one do in these circumstances? How does one cope when a majority have presented themselves as being the cat's meow, yet clearly have psychological deficiencies out the wazoo. (Wazoo: American colloquial language meaning "all over the place")

It's a challenge. And there is no one solid solution that can be provided, that will save the sane from the insane. As far as I'm concerned, it would appear to me that Insanity has made its way to being just as equally trendy as the jewellery I design.

For those that are familiar, Socrates would encourage one to "Know Thyself". It's short, it's to-the-point, and it works. While I empathize with those groups who are victimized, traumatized, and discriminated against on the basis of someone else's psychiatric disorder, I would simply recommend that you do some research in finding out what you are up against; because this disorder doesn't just go away....I mean, guaranteed by tomorrow, you will lay your eyes on a Sociopath. And I ask you, what are you going to do about it?

Study, my friends. Knowledge is the key to all Over-standing.
