One possible way to restore empathy?
about the mechanistic and psychopathic mode of modern thought led back to an earlier point of inflection.
Among the radio detective and cop shows around 1950, there's a sharp dividing line between the empathetic
and the mechanistic. The big network shows, following Deepstate's new 1946 guidelines, focus on the rigorous mechanical nature of "law", which of course doesn't exist. The cops operate strictly by all rules, giving victims no choice. After you report a crime to the cops, the rest is all SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE. The shows go into great detail on the processing of ink and paper in forgery cases, or the analysis of chemicals in arson. It's all SCIENCE and no HUMAN.
The older shows, especially the low-budget syndicated or regional shows, are much more human. Detective Browning
in the Chicago-based 'Calling All Detectives' ignores chemical analysis. He tries to align and adjust the rules to achieve the best, or least-awful, result for his client. In blackmail cases he tries to help the client realize that exposure is usually less awful than perpetual payment and entrapment.
I was thinking along similar lines a few months ago.....
= = = = = START PARTIAL REPRINT:
Another point came up in the '60s when profs were being fired for "political" reasons. My father explained that "political" reasons were usually a cover story for plain old dislike. In a bureaucracy the department head can't write down "I don't like him" or "We don't get along" on an official document. The department head can
write down "Communist agitation" or "Trumptard insurrection", according to the fashion of the era.
Isms and ideologies don't matter. Caste matters, and innate personality matters.
I forgot this lesson in the '90s when I got lost in the ideological fake battle of neocons vs RadicalIslamicTerrorists. I regained it in 2011 when I threw away the TV.
The point became EXTREMELY SHARP in 2020, when all governors but one,
all national presidents but one,
and all mayors and Public Death Officers without exception, acted in holocaustal unison. At first I tried
to map the isms onto the pattern, but the isms didn't fit.
Isms don't count. "Laws" and "constitutions" don't exist. The only thing that matters is GUTS.
Strong demons will kill forever when given the opportunity. 2020 gave them the opportunity. Weak demons will kill for a while then get bored.
A few non-demonic leaders who had the courage to resist blackmail and extortion were able to break out of the monstrosity and save their people from mass murder.
= = = = =
A vague Trinity House type thought.... What about the non-demons who didn't resist? There's no way to fight blackmail with blackmail. The Deepstate and Epstein blackmail networks have been building their cadres and structures and skills for 120 years.
They own everything that counts. We can't overwhelm them with superior blackmail force. Failing that, is there a way to give non-demonic leaders more GUTS? A Mutual Benefit Association to check out the specific threats and open them up in a way that neutralizes the force? Most threats are empty or fake. The real ones are generally not worth losing your soul to maintain silence. This Association wouldn't need to be especially large or rich, but it would need to be located out of country.
Continuing later and even vaguer: MBAs were the ancestor of insurers.
Before insurers were totally corrupted by Share Value,
they were motivated by profit to give good advice. Insurers understood real risks in fine detail, and knew how to avoid them.
Insurers also paid only the largest and most serious claims, which motivated the customers to do their own risk controls. Balance and equipoise.
Life insurers advised customers how to live longer. Theft insurers evaluated collectibles to spot forgeries, and advised owners on burglar alarms and security. Fire insurers tried to prevent obvious fire hazards.
This blackmail insurer would function the same way. It would understand the real risks of shame and exposure, and would advise customers that it's usually better to take some shame than to lose your soul and life by obeying criminals. (Handling only the most serious claims.) It would also evaluate the threats for forgeries, as mentioned above.
= = = = = END REPRINT.
Still seems like a pretty good idea.
