Groups of people who did not have a generous sprinkling of “sociopaths” were killed or absorbed by those tribes that did.
…or it’s tough for a tribesmen who feels “compassion” for others or Empathy, identifying with another human being as being like themselves, to stand in the shield wall and shove the spearpoint into the face on the other side of the shields.
Achilles was a sociopath, so was Lancelot.
If it comes to Civil War again in this country, I plan on being a good little sociopath.
I dunno if this is accurate, but Sundance has an interesting perspective on the situation, and the ultimate goal. I wonder if the Red Chinese have realized that this might just be what the game is. If so, Hong Kong and its unrest is just the start of Chairman Xi’s problems.
President Trump is famously impatient in achieving a financial objective. He is known to have well thought plans, but he is also known to not pause long when executing his plan. This economic impatience may seem to be at odds with the majority of the financial media who say President Trump is playing a long-game with Chairman Xi Jinping.
ERGO the dichotomy is explained thus: If President Trump is famously impatient, then why is he being so deliberate and painfully slow in achieving a deal with Chairman Xi?…
Here’s the ‘ah-ha’ moment.
….The current status with China was the final objective.
President Trump looks like he’s being stunningly patient because President Trump achieved his goal when no-one was paying attention. We are already past the success point.
The goal is essentially achieved.
There is no actual intent to reach a trade deal with China where the U.S. drops the tariffs and returns to holding hands with a happy panda playing by new rules. This fictional narrative is a figment of fantasy being sold by a financial media that cannot fathom a U.S. President would be so bold as to just walk away from China.
That ‘walk away’ is exactly what President Trump did when he left all of those meetings in Southeast Asia in 2017; and every moment since has been setting up, and firming up, an entirely new global supply chain without China.
President Trump is not currently engaged in a substantive trade agreement in the formal way people are thinking about it. Instead “Phase-One” is simply President Trump negotiating the terms of a big Agricultural purchase commitment from Beijing, and also protecting some very specific U.S. business interests (think Apple Co.) in the process.
The actual goal of President Trump’s U.S-China trade reset is a complete decoupling of U.S. critical manufacturing within China.
A Queens businesswoman who immigrated to the U.S. as a child and voted for President Obama said that she believes that President Trump represents the best hope for people in her community.
“I thought that [Obama] would… be the one to reverse some of the layers of Joe Biden’s crime bill, but he didn’t. He was weak on criminal justice reform,” said Murray, who is vying for the chance to take on controversial freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y., in the upcoming 2020 election.
“President Trump came in,” she continued, “and delivered the First Step Act. Now he’s onto the Second Step Act. Not only has he delivered on his promise to the American people, but he’s doing more for African-Americans than any other president has done in my lifetime.”
Murray immigrated to the U.S. from Jamacia when she was 9 years old and became a citizen at the age of 18. “All of these things sort of shaped who I am — coming to this country and working hard, going through the education system, learning and doing things the right way, I think is why my candidacy is so important.”
“I do believe I’m living the American dream. I’ve seen my parents work hard, tirelessly,” she told Lahren.
“It’s time that we put aside these nonsensical policy pushes that are going to keep government’s hands in the pocketbooks of everyday Americans,” she concluded. “We heard [Ocasio Cortez] talk about the Green New Deal. We heard her talk about Medicare for all, college for all… it’s going to continue to cost the American taxpayers, everyone in Queens and the Bronx that wakes up every day and works hard, hard for that dollar.”
AOC will still have the Talk Shows and the Twitter feeds to bolster her EGO and provide support after the election, so she’s got that going for her.
