My point is this: How could anyone expect the prisoners to do such a thing? Similarly, how can you expect Americans to revolt and give their lives up when human nature shows that ALL people will tolerate a horrible situation so long as there is a chance that THEY THEMSELVES will survive?
And you know what. I wouldn't expect the prisoners to do such a thing. They are being controlled by fear and mass psychology. This is how they are herded into death camps. This is why they are sheep. Yet, here lives are at stake. So, I can understand why they wouldn't react. I wonder if I would react, if I knew that by reacting, I could putting mine or a loved one life in jeoparody.
But, Small Peeps, apathy is not about weighting what is at stake. Apathy and ignorance is a choice we make. When we are apathetic about the good of our own society, is then when organizations like NWO, S&B capitalise on the opportunity. It is due to the apathy of people that civil rights have been stripped away. Here, not much was at stake. Yet, people in US still allowed it to happen. In, fact, not only allowed it to happen, but encouraged it.
So again, what is at stake here? What is at stake is an imagined and fabricated threat. So the people encourage it. However, with all due respect to Americans, isn't that stupid?
To then have Americans supporting - even cheering wars for an imagined and fabricated event. Just, what the NWO wants, isn't that stupid?
There are are quite a few people here who think America has the right to rule the world? Are these just innocent misguided children?
Again, ask yourself, if because of these people 3-4 billion people will die, wouldn't you have any animosity towards these people? We can't just displace everything onto psychology and absolve them of their own thoughts and actions. If people let themselves be controlled and making the NWO stronger. Then they are accountable as are those pulling the strings.
No one can be controlled. I tell you, absolutely no one can be controlled. We, let ourselves be controlled. At least in your example, there are real stakes. The real possibility of death and pain. Yet, in this case, it's more about pride, arrogance. It's purely selfish.
You know like in that thread earlier on today. Where some US soliders were were shooting a dog for fun. How do we psychologically explain this? Yes, we can, they have power and are abusing it. A human psychological diffeiciency. Yet that's just a label for what is otherwise a disgusting and evil act and these soliders are very accoutable for their actions.
You see, no one is a born a criminal. We all born as the same children of god, and then somewhere along the way, some become criminals. Why? Was it society? Was it their own choices? Are they accountable or not? We are all accountable for our actions and only us and that is the biggest truth we can learn.
So when I see someone on this forum calling for an invasion of Iran. I don't say, it's because this person has been brainwashed by the media. I say this person is an idiot(to myself) because he is. Because he does not understand exactly what he is wishing for and nor does he understand why he wants thousands of people to die.
You said this is not about votes. But it is, everyone who rallies behind this government and it's policies, is voting for it.
Psychology is simply a system of labels. It does not really explain "why" for that you need to understand the the nature of the soul, for which there is no terminology in psychology(which itself is an amalgamation of contradictory interpretations of behavior and cognitive functions)
