The Bankster School of Lies has a tried and tested technique, “give them something repugnant to deny”, thus displacing any blame, works every time and while psychopaths have no difficulty with this, normal people do.
Liar(s) could be distinguished by these traits: 1.) Consistent destructive, scapegoating behavior, which may often be quite subtle. 2.) Excessive, albeit usually covert, intolerance to criticism and other forms of narcissistic injury. 3.) Pronounced concern with a public image and self-image of respectability, contributing to a stability of lifestyle but also to pretentiousness and denial of hateful feelings or vengeful motives. 4.) Intellectual deviousness, with an increased likelihood of a mild schizophrenic-like disturbance of thinking at times of stress.
The mass-media owned by the “Temple” drums the message, “You Owe Us Money!” (equivalent to the older, “You Are a Sinner!”) not specifying the: Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. If we are stupid enough to ask for specifics, they respond with broad generalities. It appears that the “extortionists” have conveniently forgotten the insolvency law which states that recourse can only be made to the estate of the bankrupt and not to unrelated parties.
In The Battle For Our Minds we have been treated to the standard diet of: threats of isolation, fatigue, tension, uncertainty, financial jargon (econo-speak) of unintelligible terms, and of course no humor (debt is deadly serious).
Governments, lobbied by the finance industry, have removed all effective regulations including those for crime and fraud, all supposedly made right by the sacred and infallible market, finally shrouding it all in bank secrecy and international treaties, and still corrupt governments and private banks are our penance.
As we go up the hierarchy in organized power structures this pattern becomes even more prevalent and damaging. As the Banksters have through the ages claimed to be the “Treasurers of The Gods.” and to be “Doing God’s Work”, I can’t but include the videos from the Intelligence Squared Debate, due to the obvious parallels in hypocrisy, pride and prejudice, here are Stephen Fry and Christopher Hitchens.
People have been grappling with this curious lack of ‘humanness’ for a very long time, here is more on the subject:
