Manipulate. Intimidate. Indoctrinate.
by Aaron Warner
Andrej Lobaczewski was a grad student studying psychology while the communist revolution was taking full swing in his native Poland. Together he and some fellow students, psychiatrists and other dissidents created an information underground aiming to study the movement that had seized both country and countrymen. Their motivation was more than simple scientific curiosity. What they saw could be described as nothing short of political evil. For the sake of their families and country, as well as future generations, they took it upon themselves to risk imprisonment and even death to chronicle and diagnose the manipulators and monsters now ruling them.
Lobaczweski would go on to author the book Political Ponerology despite having to re-write it from the beginning three times. The first draft was forcibly destroyed after a visit from the secret police. Warnings of another surprise visit cost him the second manuscript. The third and final wasn’t produced until he fled to the United States where he at last had the freedom to put he and his colleague’s observations in print.
Reading the book is not quite as daunting as writing it, no doubt. Still, Lobaczewski writes in eerily similar fashion to the famous authors of communism. Long, jargon-filled sentences force the uninitiated to read and re-read many passages. Only Lobaczewski is not practiced at hyperbole or sophistry like, say, Marx or Marcuse. The writing is astonishingly technical and fleshed out with deliberate exactness as one might expect a doctor of psychiatry to use when writing to other psychiatrists. However the book’s intended audience is anyone who wishes to curtail an encroaching political movement wrought from schizoidal psychopathy like that which they witness in communist Poland.
Early in their communication students observed what they named transpersonification of other students shortly after the indoctrination began. Communist teachers, described as having lower intelligence, managed to brainwash their peers despite their previous misgivings about communism. They attributed this to a combination of manipulation and intimidation coupled with daily doses of targeted indoctrination. The microsocial changes became macrosocial as Lobaczewski’s secret scientific body took copious notes.
A picture emerges of certain types of people at the control of the communist engine, starting with its authors and culminating with its executors. The schizoidal type, not to be confused with schizophrenic, is described as:
“…cause their families trouble, easily turn into tools if intrigue in the hands of clever and unscrupulous individuals, and generally do a poor job of raising children.”
I’m reminded of Marx’s mother and wife both complaining about his burdening his family by “writing about capital but not making any”. His five children all died of malnutrition, neglect or suicide.
Lobaczewski goes on:
“Their tendency to see human reality in the doctrinaire and simplistic manner they consider “proper” – i.e. “black or white” – transforms their frequently good intentions into bad results. However, their ponerogenic roll can have macrosocial implications if their attitude toward human reality and their tendency to invent great doctrines are put to paper and duplicated in large editions.”
Their writing is often their chief weapon for creating the political change they seek – a change animated by the desire to fundamentally transform old restrictive norms they felt oppressed by into a new normal that allows both their desired new freedoms while also building a vanguard aimed at destroying the old normal and any who wish to keep it.
The intended audience for this doctrine includes those who will misinterpret it and those who will see it for what it is – a power play for the pathologically adroit. He cautions the former:
“In spite of their typical deficits, or even an openly schizoidal declaration, their readers to not realize what the author’s characters are really like. Ignorant of the true condition of the author, such uninformed readers tend to interpret such words in a manner corresponding to their own nature. The minds of normal people tend toward corrective interpretation due to the participation of their own richer, psychological worldview.”
Some of these might ultimately retreat from this embrace once they see the writing on the wall. One example is former NYU Professor of History Michael Rechtenwald who faced the wrath of the social justice warrior horde at his university who took issue with some of his counter-narrative tweets. Rechtenwald was a self-proclaimed Marxist-leftist who still had enough common sense to see through the insanity and incongruity of the Black Lives Matter movement and others that were exposing their internal contradictions. Pushed to the point of filing suit against the university Rechtenwald renounced both Marxism and all things left upon seeing the demonic nature of its direction.
The latter member of the schizoidal demagogue’s audience is the one primed to take the necessary steps to execute it and anyone who will get in their way. These are the “essential psychopaths” who have character deficits in both compassion and intellect that create a deadly combination. Essential psychopaths see themselves opaquely both perceiving their difference from most while also misperceiving their difference as a source of superiority. This delusion creates a supreme confidence when coupled with utter lack of compassion and remorse ends in the deaths of tens of millions. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Mugabe, and Hussein all embody this personality disordered type described:
“The average intelligence of the psychopath, especially if measured via commonly used tests, is somewhat lowered than that of normal people.”
The lack of individual brain power is subsumed by their innate ability to collectivize into like-minded missionaries:
“They learn to recognize each other in a crowd as early as childhood, and they develop an awareness of the existence of other individuals similar to them.”
Achieving a certain pathological genius for overcoming societal norms to achieve their ultimate aims they consider themselves elite, almost holy in that they believe they are set apart from the rest of the hoi polloi whom they consider as cattle to be used for work or consumption.
“They become experts in our weaknesses and sometimes effect heartless experiments.”
Having read Project Paperclip I am familiar with the heartless experiments of the Nazis under the super-psychopathic direction of Hermann Goering. Given the outcome of the “experimental mRNA” vaccine and the devastation it’s wrought one can only wonder if this global pathocracy has all the right people in all the right places to realize what those who came before could only dream of.
The solution to this problem is for those of us who see it to speak up and stand up in defense against it. With the same ruthlessness guided by an actual moral compass, good people need to wrestle the controls back instead of waiting for their incompetence and entropy to burn itself out. Waiting only strengthens their resolve, and people like those described here are built to watch it all burn, just like Marx told them to.
Ignati nulla curatio morbi.
