Breeding of Sociopaths in a Submissive Society

I’ve been working since I was 14 years old, and legally since I was about 15. My first job was with my Dad, then later I worked at a grocery store as a stocker, a community college as a math tutor, a sales person at an office supply store, a sales person at a mobile phone store, a technician at a casino, a sailor and IT in the navy, receiving in a warehouse for Walmart, and my most recent job was working as a telecommunications project coordinator. I’ve done jobs from the most simple (stocking, nothing more) to being expected to take care of more than one person should be able to handle. I managed all of them with ease, mainly because I don’t let societal constructs bother me. I did, however, leave my most recent position because of a moral conflict: not to mention, them completely breaking workplace laws and safety regulations. Anyway, every job I’ve had has broken the rules. Surprisingly, the place that you’d imagine to be the most scuzzy (the casino) was one of the best work environments I’ve been in compared to the others. The best was probably the community college where I tutored other students to help them get better grades in college algebra.

Now, I think I’ve had a pretty diverse career experience – more than most my age, more than some in an entire lifetime. I’m not a creature of habit by any means.  However, there is some insight I can bring based on the workplace and society in general that someone who has been at the same job for 5-10 years cannot give you. All of these workplaces run on the same “game”. In fact, the higher paying a job becomes, the less your qualifications and abilities matter. Sound crazy? It’s crazy, but I assure you it’s true. There may be some exceptions to this, but when I say higher paying I generally mean getting into supervisory and management positions, when you’re already familiar with the specific field in question. For example, you do need medical school to become a doctor, and I don’t think there’s really a way to get around that most basic qualifying factor. However, once you get the education required, it really doesn’t matter how good of a doctor you are to move up in your career. You just have to be a decent doctor, nothing more, maybe even a half-bad doctor, to move up in the ranks. Why is it? Because we’ve really been brainwashed and most people’s identity and reality are hinged solely on their egos.

Now, I’m sure the people who won’t appreciate this are the very people who hinge their entire identity on their professional titles, and really don’t know how else to define themselves as people. My last manager often referred to himself as God and Jesus, because he managed to swindle a CEO into seeing what he wanted them to see in our department, as opposed to his horrible judgement calls. He was successful, if you consider success being a con man and breaking just about every hostile work environment guideline known to every industry, ever. Now, does that make you uncomfortable? A lot of people would think it is absolutely wrong for me to speak poorly of my previous employer, and something like what I just said would make them feel so weary. If it does make you uncomfortable, then you are definitely career submissive. It’s more than likely that you have been conned into the biggest con of all, and that is that you have been told to submit or comply as almost a blackmail technique. Think about it, you’ve been constantly warned about stepping out of line or making a splash. We all have.

The more career submissive you are, and the more you hinge your identity on your professional title, the more likely you are to advance in your career. In fact, knowledge and expertise will get you only to a certain level, but it will never give you that breakthrough. A lot of companies will tell you that people get promoted because they understand the business so well. That’s not remotely true. If you believe that, then you’re just being conned. The truth is, management promotes people that support their delusions. Management is typically hand selected to be the most submissive and unquestioning follower. There’s a hack to breaking through in your career that you can start using today: reinforce your boss/manager’s delusions. This has nothing to do with having pride in the work you do, being committed to the workplace, or even knowing your job that well. Most executive leadership is the most clueless. In fact, executive leadership has been almost always obtained through this con-artist method. How many of the highest paid CEOs have degrees from an ivy league university? It’s above 70%, and it’s growing. Why? Because these are educations that are purchased. I guarantee you that anyone with enough money going to an ivy league college will pass – no matter how mentally incapable. What you see is a bunch of students getting an education from this supposed institution of the highest learning, and then going out and using that as a way to get a foothold (combined with the networking experience, of course). What happened? The student, or their families, submitted. They submitted and paid extraordinarily overpriced tuition for an education that is only talked up. Do you really think people who graduate from Harvard, Yale, or MIT are more intelligent than other people? They’re not! If you believe they are, then you’re a career submissive and you’ve been duped.

Now, you’re probably wondering how this ties into being a sociopath. It most certainly does. In fact, almost any person in a position of power you meet will have some sociopath tendencies. They have to play this “game” to get ahead, and even realizing the game exists isn’t something most people are willing to accept or admit. First, you’d have to be honest and admit to yourself that we live in a society that values conning people and rewards those who lie and deceive to get ahead. Well, if you can admit that, then you can see that our society rewards those who are most submissive and cater to psychopathic rulers.

Do you think our presidential candidates win the presidency based on their superior intelligence or sheer drive to do what’s best for society? I’m sure you’re laughing, because we all know how far from the truth that is. Presidents are placed, like all levels of management in corporations, based on their submission. The more submissive and catering someone is, the more likely they are to receive a promotion. A lot of people, at first, find this offensive. They get defensive and in and uproar because they are in management for having type “A” personalities. Most management has absolutely no clue about critical thinking, and if they did, they wouldn’t be in management to begin with. So, rethink the company structure…

Most/Extremely Submissive – CEO / President

Very Submissive – Executive Management / Vice Presidents

More Submissive – Mid to Low Level Management

Submissive – Most employees

If you refuse to submit to a companies culture, chances are you are going to be pushed out. If you call out your boss on an issue, 99.99% of the time they will respond with a retaliatory action. The fact is, the easier you are to control and use as a pawn – the more likely you are to move up, and quick. You’re not only submitting at work, though. You’re submitting to the illusion of the American Dream. You are selling out, dismissing your entire personality, to prove something: that you made it! Is that really something most people want? No. People are lied to. They are told that if they work hard and keep a level head, or if they’re better at their jobs, etc… they will receive promotions. People love to think this is why they are receiving promotions, because it exploits their inflated egos/insecurities. In fact, their skill, intelligence, whatever companies make up, etc… has the least to do with why they are being promoted. It’s more, they have perfected the art of being a lap dog and pleasing their master. The more submissive you are, the quicker you move up: and the more you abandon your morals and humanity, the quicker you can do whatever pleases your company/job.

That, friends, is how our society breeds submission and sociopaths so effectively.

What should I write about?

I used to write a lot. I used to write about all sorts of things. It is an outlet that I haven’t really used to it’s promising extent lately (about 4-5 years) with the exception of writing some poetry when prompted. I was part of a poetry writing group for a little while, I guess you could say.

Oh, I know – how about this. So I got out of the Navy in 2012, and I’ve really had a complete mind-shift since. I guess most people go into the military and it reinforces some sense of entitlement or expectation in them. A lot of people will say that finding employment these days is more difficult. I really believe being a veteran makes it even more difficult, especially if you don’t go in the route of entitlement, and instead have somewhat disassociated from your ego instead. My expectations in life have changed drastically. I’ve realized that the world we live in is really some cheap imitation of reality. All the things I was raised to believe were important or that I was supposed to be doing with my life to gain some pat on the back or societal praise for accomplishing , I now feel are completely useless and fruitless avenues. For example, I don’t really care about a job that pays me X amount of dollars, I’m not interested in working for a place that has no humanity or thinks racism or discrimination is common place or acceptable. My standards have increased to the point that I’d rather be unemployed than work for an organization that doesn’t like up with what my views are on the world in general.

I spend a lot of time contemplating ways to fix humanities problems and different things I can do, as well as others, to make the world a better place. Making money and having some title that is supposed to garner respect seems so far fetched and ridiculous to me now. I believe I really am at turning path and I chose the path that was more difficult to avoid sacrificing my ideals. I left a high paying, minimally stressful job, to work on myself and figure out a better way to move forward in life that matches my personal definition of success, instead of everyone else’s. I’ve really found myself drifting away from people who live in the charade of perceived power. I don’t like surrounding myself with closed-mindedness and narrow thinking. I find the constant struggle that people subject themselves to (trying to prove themselves and constantly being the first, best, or have the most money) to be sheepish and rather boring. I honestly can’t stand the way society has shaped most people into vessels void of empathy, compassion, and understanding. I used to be one of those people, just wandering around oblivious to the illusion I was living in. Now when I see people stressing their egos I get a taken back feeling and wonder if it really makes them feel good, because up until this point I felt like I was always seeking something outside myself for fulfillment. Now I write my own rules and I define my own success, as opposed to waiting on someone else to tally my results for me and tell me if I’ve done a good job.

What is a good job?

A good job for most people, I think, is one in which the rewards reaped are equal to or exceed the effort put in to achieve the end result. Most good work is quantified over time and takes into consideration many years of sacrifice and dedication. However, when someone is sacrificing and dedicating their time to reach an idea of success that isn’t even their own, I can see why even after all of their so-called accomplishments: they still feel empty. I think a lot of people experience this in life. I think a lot of people do everything they are supposed to do, according to society or family or friends, and find themselves feeling completely empty inside. I think a lot of people are never given any real opportunities to find what is important to them, because our school systems and work environments cater to a very limited and narrow minded definition of success. What are the first things that you think of when you hear the word success?

For me, those things used to be: money, a nice house, a nice car, nice material possessions, etc (more superficial bs)… Maybe even marriage and having children were ideas of success. Most definitely going to college and obtaining a degree in a field of study that insured a well paying job was considered ‘successful’.  Who would agree? Are pieces of paper showing that you’ve gone to a university really going to prepare you for the work you’ll be doing? Probably not. I guess most people would find this impressive. Oh, look, someone who has their PhD or Masters must be really passionate about x y and z to dedicate their money and time into that particular field of study. Seems logical, right? Is it really? Or did these people attend university only because they felt they had to, in order to play the game, and get their foot into the door of what society expected of them. Wouldn’t a young, passionate, and eager mind be better spent delving directly into it’s passions and learning invaluable real-world experience with what they’re doing, as opposed to waiting sometimes up to 8 years before they are even allowed to practice what they’ve been studying for? Also, how motivated by their passion are they going to be when they’re paying off potentially 6 figures or more of student debt? I bet a lot of their choices at that point will again be skewed by what jobs pay more. Now, instead of having unbridled passion, they have unbridled fear and a feeling of having to accept the highest paying job just to make it by in life. So much for passion, right? Was this the real intention of the education system? To burn people out and keep them from experiencing their passions without footing a tremendous bill and worrying them over how they’re even going to make it by as an adult in society?

Then, there’s another definition of success… The one I have defined for myself.. It involves doing my best to stay healthy and aware of tricks and propaganda around me, being compassionate and understanding when I have an opportunity to be, and valuing what is best for humanity over some trivial game of self-interested pursuits that are based on societies definition of success. In other words, I’m not here to impress anyone other than myself. Leaving a positive impression is also my idea of being successful. I like to leave positive impressions on people I am dealing with, activities that I partake in, and even every day decisions I make. Am I making a decision with my ideals at the forefront? If so, then I am living successfully.

So, as I mentioned, I left my well paying job. I’m looking for work, but I still haven’t found anything that catches my eye. Even companies that portray themselves as non-profit and do-good are really suffering from the same problems that other businesses face. They’re filled with the same people who feel they got betrayed and ripped of their passions for the most part. They feel like they got stuck into a stereotypical box of success that keeps them barricaded into being someone they really aren’t. So, I really think society ( where I am ) has a tendency of sticking people into boxes and expecting very specific things from them in order to deem them as socially acceptable.

I say no, I’m not living in your box anymore. I broke out and now I’m taking the world on one step at a time, and I can honestly say – I’ve never felt more fulfilled.
