Re:Elite World Order In Jitters

In January 2016 only 62 people held as much wealth as one-half of the entire world, but within one year, by 2018, that figure narrowed to 8 people with as much wealth as one-half of the entire world.

Sounds like we could do a lot if we just got those eight people to make a real sacrifice to help everyone else. I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige if it was explained to them properly. Easy fix.

I think I want to read this book. I'm guessing Barnes and Noble won't be carrying it, though. (They do list it, but it isn't on the shelf.)

Out of stock in all my local bookstores. How can that be?

This woman is interesting to me. She reminds me very much of a young woman I once knew whose father was in my trade. He was a megalomaniac and a very dominating parent. She became sort of an extension of him, his willing minion, doing his dirty work.

I see SHS as the daughter of a very dominating, patriarchal, religious, conservative Christian father. She started out as HIS minion, and she was identified by Trump (a definite megalomaniac)  as someone he could control and use to be his attack dog. She is a true believer, someone who follows the dogma she was handed blindly. She sees the world in black and white. Her side is assumed to be in the right always.

It's a kind of pathology, although I'm not sure there's a name for it, or even if the psychology establishment would be able to diagnose it.

But it isn't hard to understand.

I knew a young man near the beginning of my career who was the son of a woman who was a crazed, control-freak fundamentalist. She had to die and him move away to have any semblance of a normal life.
There is a school of thought that conflates fundamentalist religious fervor with mental illness. Not willing to cross that bridge, but there is absolutely no doubt that a lot of mental problems are caused or exacerbated by authoritarian religion. I've seen them in action. Extreme control freaks.

Love to flip up the lid on the squirrel cage & have a hypnosis session with these cats.

The problem is, the client has to be willing. In their case the clients ass needs to be ablaze.

Milton Erickson never asked for consent, and he could put you in trance while discussing the weather. That was a long time ago, though. You'd get in trouble now, doing what he did.

But if you haven't read about his techniques, you would enjoy that, I'm pretty sure.

His moment in time was the 50's and 60's. He was a marriage and family counselor, and he thought couples were happier if they had lots of children. And his clients often DID have more children, after he worked with them. LOL He'd probably get sued for support if he were alive and doing that now.

I'll bet Uncle Adolf was a smoooth talker in his day. He sure got away with it.

Your are correct sir. Hypnosis is in the delivery, and the way to practice that delivery is in the mirror.
