Good evening everybody. My name is Ben Emlyn-Jones and I'm an empath... Will a day come when I really will utter those words? Sitting in a circle with a dozen other men at a room in a community centre? Why not? All my life I have been told constantly, in many different ways by many different people, that I have something wrong with me. Do I really suffer from a disorder? If so then the opportunity for a cure is everywhere. The room in the community centre is actually the entire world. I've talked several times about psychopaths and how they are being glamourized and glorified by society, see background links below, but perhaps it's more accurate to say that society is psychopathic. Our world is fundamentally a projection of the psychopathic consciousness. In such a society, empathy is logically regarded with contempt, as we would expect. We're seen as weak and corrupted, barely human at all. I've coined the term "pseudo-psychopath" for somebody who is not a psychopath but exhibits psychopathic personality traits. How many people are pseudo-psychopaths? It's probably more expedient to ask how few are not. They are people who have had the humanity thrashed out of them by the inquisition of the modern social order. Pseudo-psychopaths often suffer enormous emotional pain because of this; I know because I've encountered so many of them. They're the office manager who reprimands one of his staff unfairly because the rulebook tells him he has to. They're the IDF pilot who drops incendiary bombs onto a Palestinian neighbourhood. They're the boy at school who bullies others because he thinks it's the only way to survive in this "dog-eat-dog world, Mate!" The justification is that it's "just human nature, Man!" and that we have to screw others before they screw us. This is a prevailing view in our world which few people question because no alternative is intellectually acceptable. However I would ask why it is that something so natural and essential to our existence needs to be promoted so vigourously in the media and other social engineering facilities; why does it need this constant maintenance? And why then the psychological damage it causes, not just to their victims, but to the pseudo-psychopaths themselves? Why do they feel a deep sense of remorse despite the fact that they're just acting naturally and normally? Why feel ashamed when everybody and everything around them is telling them that they should feel proud, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/thats-just-human-nature-man.html?
The definitive study on this issue dates back to Dr Robert Hare and his invention of the "psychopath test", which was a first step to deciding whether somebody was a psychopath or normal; but at no time does Dr Hare turn his subject matter on its head and ask an obvious question: what if it's the psychopaths who are normal and the rest of us, the non-psychopaths, who are suffering from a pathology? That question had to wait for the arrival of Prof. Kevin Dutton. His notion is radically different to Hare's; for Dutton a regulated level of psychopathic tendencies in the mind are admirable and positive personality traits. Dutton's own psychopath test is very different to Hare's; if you score too low on it you are not passed as normal, but advised of your shortcomings and given advice on how to improve yourself, see here for more details: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/channel-4s-psychopath-night.html. The film Saturn 3 is very interesting because its plot revolves around the battle between a psychopath and an empath, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/saturn-3.html. The same goes for the film Gaslight, which is where the term "gaslighting" comes from, meaning a form of mental abuse in which the attacker tries to fool the victim into believing they are going insane, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPcYkxmhGs0. The main difference between these older examples and modern fictional works is that in the older ones the viewer is left in no doubt about the moral perspective; the psychopath is bad and the empath is good, somebody blameless who deserves our support. In modern fiction these roles tend to be much more ambiguous and ever reversed, as is so often the case with TavistockEnders, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/eastenders-murder.html. This is having an impact on public opinion. Bernie Madoff was an investment banker who was convicted of the world's biggest act of fraud; he embezzled over sixty-five billion dollars out of his clients. News reports at the time referred to his victims very unsympathetically; they even called them "accomplices". This is not unlike the rapist saying: "she was asking for it!"; it's the very same moral equation. And as the researcher Clive Boddy discovered, companies in the financial sector are actually starting to use Hare's test when interviewing prospective employees; not to screen out psychopaths, but deliberately to recruit them. This has had devastating results on thousands of lives and has ruined the economy, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlB1pFwGhA4 and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tj1pGtlXxoo. Dutton's work is incredibly revealing, far more so that even he himself realizes. However, are psychopaths purely a product of Illuminati-occupied society or can they be found elsewhere... not that there's much of that elsewhere left these days? Indigenous peoples like the American Indians or
islanders often have the
concept of "men without souls". The difference is that once
identified these individuals are immediately banished from the community,
whereas in our world they're made the equivalent of chieftain. So we can't
blame the Loomies for everything, contrary to what some people think. Don Juan
Matus, the elderly medicine man whom Carlos Castaneda describes in his series
of books, talks about what he calls the "predators" which are
malevolent intelligences that exist beyond our physical world and he says
dramatically: "They gave us their mind!" These "predators" are
similar in nature to the Archons or
what Muslims call the Djinn. Almost
every culture in the world has some myth relating to the "Fall of
Man", in which we humans fell from a higher spiritual state to a lower
one, out of South
Sea Eden, into the Kali Yuga. Is the presence of
psychopaths in the human world a symptom of our fall from grace into that
collective lower consciousness? Or perhaps they are the weapons that the
predator consciousness uses to penetrate our universe, as Laura Knight-Jadczyk
suggests here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sggu9SnVZ8.
Either way, the result is that being an empath in today's world is difficult. All kinds of obstacles are put in our way and we attract a huge amount of contempt and hostility from many areas. This is a fact I realized long before I realized that I suffered from an empathic disorder. All attempts to treat my condition have failed and I will probably die an empath. Of course I'm being sardonic here. The thoughts and feelings I have relating to being an empath say more about the world we live in than me, myself. There are also plenty of other empaths out there whom I've got in touch with and befriended. Some of them score far lower on the Dutton scale than I do. We've learnt to stick together and fight back. As I said above, empaths are people who are affected emotionally by the wellbeing of others. We have been branded as "weak" and "feeble" and even unworthy of life by a society built upon the foundations of psychopathy. Do we really want to gain the approval of a society like that? Empaths are not weak and feeble, on the contrary; virtually by definition we are tough and resilient. To have reached adulthood with your empathy intact means that you have resisted an extraordinary amount of indoctrination and peer-pressure that is desperately urging you to abandon it. That takes a lot of strength and courage. It is the pseudo-psychopaths who are weak and feeble for it is they who have caved in. If empathy means being affected emotionally by the plight of others people, then it means that you will fight and risk your life out of a sense of justice when others wouldn't dare. Empaths can be heroic, virile and masculine men, and powerful, nurturing and beautiful women. Empathy is not a disorder; it is something admirable and noble, and it's something we should all be proud of.
