I asked you to explore your own individual breaking points, now in speaking of collective evil, I ask you to do the same with respect to your own relationships with different groups be it religious groups, the work place, activist groups, family, friends. How much do you actually take personal responsibility in a particular group situation? How much of your self are you willing to give over to another? Most likely this is difficult to answer until you are in a group situation where your integrity and your threshold of pain and suffering are tested. This can mean from anywhere from wanting to simply fit in to group conversation, so you go with the groups degradation of others in the guise of course of joking and sarcastic remarks. To singling out the victim of such behaviors on your part and gleefully rallying round the ringleader willingly bashing another in an open forum happy to not be the brunt of such pain and suffering.
This type of group evil can also be very subtle for example in schools, in work places where the victim is degraded and their integrity is quietly clawed at and ripped away like vultures ripping at the flesh of a road kill. How, do you do this you say, by glances from others, by whispers otherwise known as gossip, one of evils favorite tools. By indirect snide remarks between members of the group directly in front of the victim, oh, there are many ways group evil works at this level and most people will argue that this is normal.
Games of evil are not the norm and therefore, @ best they annihilate, often ostracize, if left alone. Depending on the nobility or thereby lack of in their character, they fall to one of two categories at that point. One, the lonely who most often relinquish all integrity for the sake of having the privilege of bonding with others no matter the consequences or two, the person of conscience willing to suffer the pain of annihilation from human bonds and rely on the one friend beyond all others, Conscious Self.
Ones’ individual concept of Self, oh, they suffer all right, the pain of loss is great for humans are creatures with the INATE deep desire to bond and relate with others. When there is nothing to relate to in others you either choose self-denial for companionship of a sort or you walk the path of life without that companionship or at best relationship with others being few and far between often superficial.
What is the point here you ask, I have spoken numerous times on laziness and there are so many little clichés in western language about people being sheep and how they need a leader, ruler, decider. ( This would be a whole book within itself) How willingly people debase themselves by forfeiting their integrity and lazily give themselves over to a so-called leader so as to relinquish all personal responsibility for their life. Ahhh, the good life you say, someone else making all the decision and what’s worse is, those at the helm don’t even have to try hard to convince you that their way is the only way. Why? Well, people would have to think for themselves of course, they would have to make decisions. They would have to consult their conscience and if they disagreed with the powers that be then they would have to suffer the pain of public reprimand and the penalties for courageously standing for truth in the wake of collective self-denial. This could mean actual death, murder I’m saying, for those in power do not want scandal to reveal the truth.
