“What makes the difference between a gang and a state is the belief that there is a difference between a gang and a state.”
~ Jakub Bozydar Wisniewski
Stockholm Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon usually attributed to a person or persons who have been taken hostage by one or more people, and during the span of time held hostage, becomes sympathetic and attached to his captor to such an extent as to form a bond or devotion to the perpetrator. This is a mental affliction that could be based on many factors, including when discussing collective societies, due to political repression or religious persecution. Voluntarily accepting the aggressors and seeing them in a positive light, whether criminals, authority figures, or a tyrannical government, is a way to cope with the threat and confusion in order to avoid facing it. This is an act of mental cowardice, that can only lead to servitude.
Hostage or slave of the state matters not, as both are based on submission and compliance. Becoming a hostage is initially a matter of force, and becoming a slave to the state can be due to voluntary acceptance or force. To become a victim of either, one must acquiesce to some ‘authority,’ whether voluntarily or due to physical entrapment or kidnapping. However, both situations require a giving up by the victim, or in many cases, to assume a loyalty to his captor to such a degree as to result in a master/slave type relationship. This is exactly what has happened with the American citizenry, as most have succumbed to the abhorrent ideology of nationalism, which rests on the worship of the state as a god, regardless of the tyranny present.
For purposes of this article, I am discussing the relationship of the state and its subjects; where the bulk of this population has fully accepted despicable nationalism, which in this case should be referred to as a mass Stockholm Syndrome. Most believe this to be ‘patriotic,’ another bastardized term that has come to mean to the proletariat, a support or worship of the state. The Latin origin (patr) of this word means “father,” so patriotism actually means support of the fatherland. It does not mean support of the governing state, and the tyranny it continually levies against its own and other peoples. I despise this term as it is falsely understood by most all in this country, as support of state totalitarianism in the form of theft, (taxation) of restrictive (all) laws, of orders or mandates, of incarceration where there is no victim, of constant police brutality, of control of every aspect of life, and of heinous aggressive war. As stated by William Blum, “America’s state religion, is patriotism, a phenomenon which has convinced many of the citizenry that ‘treason’ is morally worse than murder or rape.”
