The Living Force
Although at first, I really wanted to dislike this woman and her message because some of the things she said at the start sounded too similar to the "love and light will conquer all" messages out there, BUT just when I started to feel she was too woo woo, bang she'd say something that sounded and felt right on--right on if you are aware of the existence of 4 D STS, how they are empowered, and what their goals are for this planet.
Well, first: everyone isn't an individual. OPs for instance, don't have souls. Then there are those who voluntarily give up their internal autonomy to external control; they are no longer individuals in any meaningful sense.
But more broadly, social policy cannot be based on individuals. It is not practical for anyone to get to know the detailed particulars of every single person they interact with. Therefore they fall back on heuristics, inferred from patterns they broadly observe different groups falling into, and probalistically infer how a given individual is likely to behave based upon their observable characteristics. Similarly, social policies must be based on behavioral averages, not exceptions.
To take an example: we have certain ideas about how psychopaths behave. It is possible, I suppose, that there are psychopaths who depart from these patterns. Would you then suggest that every psychopath be treated as an individual case, and be given the benefit of the doubt until their malign intent is demonstrated? The foolishness of such a policy need not, I think, be emphasized.
To go back to the question of black crime: obviously, not all, or even a majority, of blacks are violent criminals. Yet, the fact remains that they are overrepresented in crime statistics. The consequences of behaving as though this is not true can be dire, up to and including death. Therefore people behave with extra caution around groups of, for instance, young black men. But they are simultaneously required to pretend that this is not so, thus establishing cognitive dissonance, heightened anxiety, and emotional stress.
This smells like nitpicking and missing the point in order to win an argument to me. The fact is, you don't know who is an OP and who isn't. In order to make these kinds of determinations, you have to treat each person as an individual. I can't imagine you disagree with this, so why do you feel the need to argue against it in this context?
Of course each should be treated individually. If psychopath X commits a murder, it isn't just to convict someone else, whether they're a psychopath or not. Plus, all psychopaths have a criminal mentality, so it makes sense to 'pre-judge' them in such a manner. But in order to determine whether any given individual is a psychopath, you have to treat them individually. It's not like psychopaths walk around with a sign on their foreheads. You have to determine IF they're a psychopath.
I have watched one of his press conferences recently, and thought the guy sure IS somewhat crazy! But at least he comes across as a real human being and not a lying smooth-talker like Obama and Macron and so many other empty shells in politics. I think this is one of the reasons many people love him so much.
To use your example, if I'm walking down the street and I encounter a group of young men, I will be cautious, regardless of race. If they are dressed like gangsters, I will be even more cautious, regardless of race. I wouldn't be surprised if just taking into account those three things (age, sex, and physical presentation) provides a much better heuristic than just skin color for avoiding violent encounters. (I.e., using such a heuristic may be very effective in identifying the source of a significant number - though certainly not all - of violent criminals of all races.)
I pretty much agree with everything AI wrote above. It seems to me psychegram that you are using strawman arguments to make your point, like the OP or psychopath cases you brought up. It's like you personally associate OPs and psychopaths with blacks. For whatever reason you seem to be triggered by something in the conversation and this has led you to attempt to conflate your views on race with other examples that aren't related.
Take your idea that people should be treated collectively. The vast majority of blacks are law abiding, just as with all other races. So by your own logic, you should treat all blacks you encounter as though they would be like the majority - not criminals but law-abiding citizens. This was the point hlat made earlier that you ignored.
Naturally presentation makes a difference. When people point out that it's only natural that people are wary of a group of young black men dressed in gang colors, they're accused of being racist, though. The implication being that it isn't their presentation, it's their race, that makes people wary, and that this is unjustified; when the truth is, it's more the latter than the former.
As to my focusing on race, well, this is a thread about the race riots, broadly speaking. It's hard to avoid the subject when it's the subject.
The broader point is that, these riots are predicated on the notion that black people are disproportionately targeted by law enforcement. Which is true only if they are targeted disproportionately to their degree of criminal activity. This proposition being unsupported by the data, it follows that the dissemination of this narrative is being done to destabilize society for nefarious ends. To me this is obvious, and of greater interest than discussing crime statistics.
But, because the subject triggers very deep seated programming in some people, we keep going down into the weeds.
And my point is that this is obvious, and I don't think anyone here disagrees with it. So who are you arguing with? Or, more to the point, what specific point were you disagreeing with in your latest posts?
That's not exactly what I meant. Your posts have a certain 'energy' in them when focusing on the racial aspect that others do not. (I have in mind Gurdjieff on misuse of sexual energy.) A specific example: your example of being cautious around a group of young black men. Taken at face value, what you wrote implies that someone should be more cautious around the guys in the video I provided than a group of white gang members. That's obviously nonsense, so what gives? Even in your car example, I get your point. It makes sense that people do that, and there's a reason it happens. But it's also true that most people are idiots. And if presented with a person who is afraid of a young black man SOLELY because he is a young black man, I'd say that person is an idiot - despite the value of heuristics in relation to crime statistics. Heuristics are mechanical. We're trying not to be mechanical. So we can be aware of how these kinds of things work, but also when they go wrong - especially in our own minds.
Again, the point has been made and unless I've missed it, I don't think people here have been arguing against it.
Naturally. I'd just add that it seems to me that you're not immune from that. If you were, I don't think you'd be making the arguments you have been, in the contexts in which you've been making them.
Thank you WIN 52 I was also going to bring it here. Below is my reply on the Covid thread and the same here:
I agree. Although at first, I really wanted to dislike this woman and her message because some of the things she said at the start sounded too similar to the "love and light will conquer all" messages out there, BUT just when I started to feel she was too woo woo, bang she'd say something that sounded and felt right on--right on if you are aware of the existence of 4 D STS, how they are empowered, and what their goals are for this planet. She speaks of how the Lockdown has primed us for takeover, and that the murder of George Floyd--that happened in broad daylight, surrounded by many witnesses, filmed with high quality cameras, that went on for over eight minutes with no interruption, and was shown on all media, globally, and incessantly--was actually a ritual killing, enacted by the PTB's 4D handlers, to traumatize humanity as a major mind control device --she "gave me chills."
It is worth watching by Forum members who are aware of the Cassiopaean teachings and Laura's work over the years. In other words, it is worth watching by CASS followers, but will not be appreciated by people who believe humans are the highest order on the planet. It is a good reminder to not get drawn in emotionally and feel compelled to "take sides" in a war that is an illusion created to control our hearts and minds and, irony of ironies, ENSLAVE US ALL!
That's not exactly what I meant. Your posts have a certain 'energy' in them when focusing on the racial aspect that others do not.
