The Corporation is A Psychopath and It’s Created in the White Man’s Image.
Inspired Dr. Brian Johns:
Are pedophiles mentally ill? Are their victims who become pedophiles mentally ill?
Did you see the film “The Corporation?” The premise was that the corporation, as a legal person under US law, could be subject to a psychological workup; it was determined that the corporation fit all of the criteria of a psychopath. Well, here’s one reflection on the psychopath:
What is a Psychopath?
“Psychopaths are social predators who charm, manipulate and ruthlessly plow their way through life, leaving a broad trail of broken hearts, shattered expectations without the slightest sense of guilt or regret. Their bewildered victims desperately ask, ‘Who are these people?'”
We often think of psychopaths as the disturbed criminals who capture headlines and crowd the nation’s prisons. But not all psychopaths are killers. They are more likely to be men and women you know who move through life with supreme self-confidence — but without a conscience.
“What makes them the way they are? How can we protect ourselves?”
— Robert D Hare, “Without Conscience”
As Dr. Johns posited yesterday, the Corporation is an extension of who? The White Man. (A lot of sanctimonious white liberals applauded the ingenuity of that metaphor!)
What does the corporation do? Gobble up as much of everything as it can on behalf of who? The shareholder. Who are the shareholders in the White Supremacist Corporation? White people. And they are able to accept the order of the world, the inequality, the poisoning of the planet, the murder of millions of innocents – in their name, with their guns, by their military – with nary a sleepless night.
I’ve simply made an assertion about the nature of racism and white folks have put up more opposition to that, than the racist system itself. If white folks in general were as relentless fighting racism as they’ve been trying to prove me wrong, there’d be no racism.
Yes, if we point it out, white folks know what to say to appear supportive…but what do they DO? There ain’t no John Browns running ’round to do the right thing.
White people’s behavior appears psychopathic – particularly through their actions toward the non-white world. But here are white people disowning even the possibility that they may be afflicted with a mental illness.
Disowning even the possibility – they claim – out of a desire not to harm “legitimately” mentally ill people. Whites feel they are the only ones who get to determine what and who is legitimate and what and who is not.
I just don’t get it – but I do get it. Its the disease talking.
PS Cheryl, what is crazy? What does that mean? If you look around us, the Xmas season is occurring. Does that appear crazy to you? It might appear crazy to people from other countries who know that we are the number one polluter, resource stealer, decider, etc. For someone to question the sanity of any American – ain’t no big thing to me. Perfectly legit. So don’t think that saying racism boils down to white folks and their victims being somehow crazy is saying something that billions of other people aren’t saying about this country. We’re destroying the planet for God’s sake to stuff the pockets of…..
