On tribalism

Gary Markstein / Cagle Cartoons

Trump and North Korea is an example of the interaction of tribalism caused by oxytocin.

Human beings are social animals, they are designed to live in small groups rather than anonymous large populations.  Studies show that the individual is most happy with regular interaction with small intimate communities.  The hormone oxytocin is behind the identification, bonding and relationships between people, and is the foundation upon which tribalism comes about.

As an individual I identify emotionally with the Left Hand Path, and I react strongly against anything that seeks to harm those of my tribal identification.  These feelings I have of identification, and hostility towards that which threatens my tribe, is down to the impact of oxytocin.

A complaint about the ancient Welsh people was their constant infighting over land, power and wealth, in which they quite happily murdered their own brother and father.  Yet, if an outsider killed their brother whom they had a quarrel with, the Welshman was quick to anger and determination to avenge the death through blood feud.  Although oxytocin fails to keep brother from killing brother, it surges if an outsider kills the brother.

Interestingly, when the Satan Hunters, those promoting a Satanic Ritual Abuse fiction in London, had one of their number known as Rupert Wilson Quaintance IV jailed for nine months for stalking and harassing children and their families he considered were Satanists, the backlash was intense.  Usually these Satan Hunters spend most of their time fighting each other, but as a tribe with shared values, the fall of one of their number resulted in a collective unified backlash against those they consider their enemy.  The backlash is the result of the oxytocin hormone, the tribe pushing back against a situation that threatens them.

It is worth learning about oxytocin since it has a wide and significant impact on human history, society and reactivity.

My fighting injustice ended yesterday

I have now retired from fighting injustice.

The Satan Hunter Rupert Wilson Quaintance IV was jailed yesterday for nine months on two counts of harrassing children and their families in London who he believed were involved in Satanism and killing children.

Quaintance was part of a larger mob of Satan Hunters who promoted a fiction of Satanic Ritual Abuse in London targetted at innocent people, an unjust campaign of fear that involved death threats and plots to abduct innocent children they falsely accused of being members of Satanic families.  I began my fight against these Satan Hunters at the end of 2014, a fight that has lasted nearly three years.

Fighting the injustices of this world, the shit, is that the shit hits you in the face, there is a serious penalty for opposing injustice.  It might be a simple activity like cleaning up litter from a local historical landmark, where the fizzy bottle I picked up exploded and covered me in its contents.  It might be a larger fight such as against a Satan Hunter like Rupert Quaintance, who complained to the police that my efforts to stop him hurting and terrorising innocent children and their families was harrasment of him.  Fighting great or small injustices, setting the world to rights, some of that shit by association sticks to you, like the contents of the fizzy bottle or the police investigation as a result of the complaint against me by Quaintance.

The police dropped their investigation of me after an exchange of e-mails, but this served as a wakeup call to me, as had the police pursued their investigation, my computers could have been taken, which could have impacted my business.  It was at this point I decided that once the result of the trial of Quaintance was known I would hang up my crusading boots forever.  With Rupert Quaintance jailed, I have retired from fighting injustices to focus on me and my business.

This retirement won’t stop me writing about issues pertaining to the Left Hand Path, or in my opinion useful comment on the mind, technology and philosophy.
