Community Self Defense/Protection Proposal
By Coach David Alexander (Self Defense/Protection Expert)
1LessonSelfDefense.com or RapeProof.com
Do you think the world is getting more peaceful or more violent? Shouldn’t you prepare for all situations? I propose that you teach everyone in your survival/preparedness community to Kill with their Bare Hands. Are you shocked? Please keep reading and I will try and convince you that this will actually make you and your survival/preparedness community even better prepared and a lot safer.
Before I start to hopefully convince you to learn how to Kill with your Bare Hands, I want you to know that I am not some Combat Junkie (well, maybe a little), Navy Seal or Delta Force Commando. I am just a regular guy that loves his family and would do anything to protect them from harm, including learning how to kill with my bare hands and teach my family and others to do the same, if necessary. I adhere to the non-aggression principle until that choice is taken away. My philosophy is as follows:
Avoid when you can.
Escape when possible.
Deceive if necessary.
Neutralize when all else fails.
So, put away all of your pre-conceived notions of “Hollywood Self Defense” and let me see if I can convince you that your community would be safer if everyone knew how to kill with their bare hands! Now when I say “kill with your bare hands” I mean that you need to be that aggressive when dealing with an attacker. You need to go in full force and take them out. You need to have the mindset that you will do whatever it takes to survive. I have learned a unique method for any size person to do this effectively, but I’ll wait and reveal it to you later in the proposal. First you need to be convinced that this is the best way to protect yourself, your family, and your community. The point is that you have to have the mindset that you are going to kill your attacker, not defend, “defending” is losing. You need to turn the attacker into a defender. If you go in to kill, you can always back off once the attacker is either unconscious or incapacitated. But you have to be willing to go all the way. You will not survive if you try and “ramp up” your attack from non-lethal to lethal because your attacker might kill you before you get a chance to “ramp up”. Keep reading and I will explain what I mean later in the proposal.
I can hear it already…I wouldn’t need to use my hands, because I’ll have a gun! What happens if you don’t have your gun with you? What happens if TPTB (The Powers That Be) take away or ban guns? What happens when you are not allowed to conceal carry anymore? If you don’t think it could happen, then you’re in a dream world (think U.K., Australia, etc…). Do you think that it won’t happen “in the land of the free”? How many of you feel that the U.S. is making the Bill of Rights stronger or weaker these days? Do you think that the 2nd amendment is going to save your guns? What happens when they ban ammunition instead? What happens if you or your loved ones are under an immediate threat and you cannot get to your guns? What happens when you turn a corner and some 300 pound drugged out psychopath jumps on you with a knife and starts stabbing? Do you think you’ll be able to “create space” pull your gun and end the threat? Did you even remember to bring your gun today? Really??? What happens when you go on a vacation and have to leave your guns at home? What happens when your 15 year old daughter is babysitting for a friend and doesn’t know that the next door neighbor has just been released from prison (budget cuts, legal loopholes, crooked judges) for raping young women? Wouldn’t you want her to know how to eliminate the threat the best, fastest and most efficient way possible? And if you think that her year of Tae Kwon Do or “Cardio Kickboxing” classes are going to work against a determined psychopath, then you are delusional, my friend. The point is not to fight or “beat someone up”, it’s to end the threat as quickly as possible and move on to the next attacker or get the hell out of dodge…this is what you would do if you had a gun, isn’t it? Do you feel that eliminating a threat with your bare hands is “violent” but shooting someone with a gun is O.K.? What’s the difference in using your hands to neutralize a threat versus using a gun? Aren’t they just tools to take out the real “weapon”, which is the brain?
I would like to propose that you teach everyone in your preparedness community how to use their bare hands to eliminate a threat that is trying to kill or harm them or their family. This includes trying to steal your food stores or precious metals in an End Of The World As We Know It type of situation…because that would definitely jeopardize your family’s or even your community’s lives, wouldn’t it? Don’t you agree that everyone should learn all available self protection options including using a gun, knife, bat or hands? I propose that if everyone knew how to “Kill with their Hands” the community would actually be a safer place to live than more dangerous. Or, are you afraid that the bad guys would also learn how to kill with their hands? Listen, they already know! Would people in the community start petty fights over parking spaces, having 15 items in a 10 items or less grocery store line, trample little old ladies to get to a discounted waffle maker on a “Black Friday” if they thought that someone had the knowledge and skill to kill with their hands to protect themselves?
If you are currently putting together a survival or preparedness community, aren’t you going to teach everyone at least basic gun skills and safety? Don’t you want everyone in that community to be able to defend it to the best of their ability? So, if you can agree with me that eliminating an immediate threat to yourself or family by using a gun is the same as using your hands, then shouldn’t you know how to kill with your hands? I realize, for some reason, that using your hands to eliminate a threat is not PC and is very personal, but so is getting killed, isn’t it?
The current philosophy of martial arts is to defend oneself by not injuring an attacker, using fancy techniques, which will control the person or make them submit. I have to call Bulls#!% on this one. Most people forget that these “martial arts” are practiced against a willing participant that is around the same weight, age and aggression as themselves, and there is always an instructor or referee around to stop it if it gets out of hand or someone wants to stop. Remember, there is no “tapping out” in the real world…and you are not going to remember fancy techniques when you’re in an adrenaline clouded s#!% storm! Oh, and by the way, the mutant zombie biker you have on the ground in a triangle choke has a pissed off old lady that is quickly closing the distance to stomp your head into the ground. Also, what are you going to do in a “Worst Case Scenario”? What is a “Worst Case Scenario”? It is multiple attackers with weapons! How are you going to defend against 3 starving ex-cons, that haven’t eaten in three days, who are looking for you to provide them with their next meal? If you are really trying to save your life or the lives of others, how are you going to do that by keeping these 3 ex-cons unharmed while you make them submit and control them for the cops to arrive assuming that you couldn’t get to your gun? What? Your local police department has had to downsize due to budget cuts and the local 911 line is answered by a recorded message!!! Let’s just get real for a moment and imagine the possibilities of a whole community of people that know how to eliminate a threat by using their brains, guns, knives, bats…….and hands! Predators look for easy targets. When they realize that everyone in your survival community carries a gun and knows how to kill like a Ninja, then they will move on to a different community to steal their stuff and rape their women.
If you feel that I have a valid argument for you and your community to learn to kill with your hands, then please keep reading, but if not then please stay home, drudge a moat, buy a few pit bulls, load up on all the ammunition you can, have everyone carry their gun cocked and loaded at all times, even in the shower, movie theater or grocery store and hope that no one ever comes to take your stuff or life.
When you’re in a fight for your life, you better know how to win!
Keep reading and I will tell you how you and your survival community can survive against a Worst Case Scenario using your bare hands. Most self defense systems focus on defeating one attacker, but neglect to learn to survive against multiple attackers (and you should always assume that they have a weapon). It will be easier to ramp down your defense than ramp it up (you might be injured or killed before you can escalate your defense). If you’re martial art or self defense system isn’t preparing you to survive a “Worst Case Scenario” (multiple attackers w/ weapons) then you’re going to be in some serious trouble when the S#!% hits the fan!
Train for the worst and you will be prepared for the rest!
WARNING!!! What you’re about to learn could seriously injure or even kill. If you’re uneasy about taking someone’s life to save your own or someone you love, then this is not the proposal for you.
WARNING: You must stop when you feel that the threat is neutralized in the eyes of the law.
To Law Enforcement, Corrections and Military: You will use what I teach when your lethal force continuum allows you to use deadly force. My training is not to be used to control or to make someone submit. You can use this training to enhance what you’ve already been taught. It is always easier to ramp down your attack (once the guy is incapacitated or unconscious) then to ramp it up (he might injure or kill you before you get to neutralize him).
What I’m going to show you is surprisingly very easy to learn and allows anyone, regardless of experience, size, age, strength, gender, or fitness level the ability to survive a violent attack. What is a “violent attack”? It is when some psychopath, serial killer, murderer, rapist, raiding party intends to kill or harm you, your family or your survival/preparedness community. You will only use my system when your life or the lives of your friends or family are in imminent danger.
WARNING: This information is for educational purposes only. You could get sued! You could go to jail! You are responsible for your own actions and to know your state’s self defense laws. If all this is worth it….then keep reading and I will show you how to survive a violent attack, murder/rape attempt.
BE ADVISED! DO NOT FIGHT FOR EGO OR PRIDE! You will only use what I teach if you, your family or survival community are in imminent danger of death or bodily harm. What you are about to learn is NOT to be used in an ego fight or pissing match. If you want to ego fight learn mixed martial arts (freemmaschool.com), get a referee, and go in a cage.
I don’t know about you, but I want the absolute best way for my family and community to survive an attack. I know what I teach is scary, controversial and not PC, but if you want to survive a violent attack from an asocial psychopathic serial killer or drugged out thugs that did not prepare, then you must learn to shut them down (neutralize).
Just keeping the guy off of you is not a proper defense and only works in the movies.
How to Deal with a Violent Encounter Checklist:
- I will always back away from an encounter, if at all possible, by avoiding, escaping and deceiving.
- I will always assume that there are multiple attackers with tools/weapons.
- I will do whatever it takes to survive.
- I will never ever let myself be taken to a second location (The Kill Zone).
- When the threat is neutralized (incapacitation, unconsciousness or death), I will get the F*%# out of there. (Why? a. You don’t want others coming to the scene, not knowing what happened, where you have to fight a mob or get caught in a riot. b. You will contact your attorney. c. You will deal with the police on your own terms and time frame.)
There are only 3 ways to survive a violent attack (neutralize):
How do we accomplish these tasks when we’re under attack? Let’s briefly review these one at a time:
Incapacitation: You must injure your attacker in order to escape. I’m not talking about causing pain, but actual injury. Snap an ankle so they cannot physically pursue you (as long as they do not have a gun), gouge out the eye balls so they cannot see (I didn’t say “scratch”, but “gouge out”), crush the testicles or pubic symphysis so they cannot walk or run, break the clavicles so they cannot raise their arms to shoot or stab, crush the throat so they cannot breathe….Do you get the picture?
Unconsciousness: If they are asleep (due to a choke) or knocked out (due to a blunt force trauma or hypovolemic shock), then they will not be able to pursue you.
Death: This needs no explanation.
The Philosophy of Survival is to first learn that there are ONLY TWO RULES that you will need to remember:
Repeat After Me…
Rule #1: I will do whatever it takes to SURVIVE.
Rule #2: I will never go to a 2nd location. (A.K.A. The Kill Zone)
Rules #1 and #2 mean that you will do whatever it takes to survive and never, ever let your attacker take you to a 2nd location. You will make your stand at the initial attack location. Repeat after me “I will do whatever it takes to survive and I will never allow myself to be taken to a 2nd location” (the kill zone).
Targets over Technique ~~ Target Based Training
My system is a “Target Based” training system. This means that the target is more important than the technique. This means that you will continually strike “targets” using your body weight to cause a “reaction” that will open another “target” and keep repeating until the threat is neutralized.
Here’s how it works: Strike a target to cause an automatic reflex (like touching a hot stove) to open up another target “serial targeting”. The target is more important than the technique, Ex. I could fall on someone’s neck and snap it with my body weight. This is a very unique method vs. conventional Self Defense/Combatives Instruction. For example, you could kick the groin (very hard) and cause your attacker to “reflex” into a position where his knees buckle, he bends forward at the waist, his hands automatically go to his groin, his eyes open wide and his chin is up (think of some America’s Funniest Home videos and watch when anyone gets hit in the groin, the “reflex” is the same in every video.) So, if we know that this “reflex” is going to happen, what targets does it open for us after we kick someone, very hard, in the groin? That’s right, the eyes! So now, we can move our body weight forward and use our thumbs to gouge the eyes (insert thumbs into eye sockets and try to get them to go through the back of the skull) of the attacker while “taking space” (after you gouge the eyes you should be standing where the attacker was, that is what I mean when I say “taking space”…it also increases your power and puts the attacker off balance). The eye gouge “reflex” will make the attacker turn away from the pain and bring their hands up to their eyes. Now, what can we do? We have just been made invisible, because the attacker cannot see and has turned away. We can either escape at this point or keep attacking to neutralize the threat (they could still pull out a gun and start blasting away, even though they cannot see). Please keep in mind that escape will not always be possible. Your kids might be in the house or you have another attacker(s) to deal with, or you need to go help someone else that is under attack. To make sure the threat is neutralized and knowing that they cannot see, we could grab them by the hair or clothes and slam them to the earth or onto a sharp object. From there we would stomp the trachea/throat and if you feel that you could safely turn your back on the attacker, then you are done and ready to move on to the next attacker or get away. Congratulations! You have just survived against a violent predator(s) and saved yourself, your family and your community! Are you getting the point of a “Target Based System”? Notice that I didn’t give you any fancy techniques to use? All I did is made you aware of a couple of targets and tools (kick to groin, thumbs to eyes, heal stomp to throat). Remember that a gun, knife, bat, hands, etc…are just tools to use to take out the real “weapon” which is the brain. If you had to think of some fancy “Hollywood Style” technique, you would pause or freeze up, giving the attacker the advantage, and possibly be killed, raped or have all your life saving supplies stolen.
There is obviously a lot more to learn to perfect your targeting and hand to hand based self protection skills….so consider this proposal the beginning of your training. Please contact me if you would like to learn more. Or visit my website at http://www.1LessonSelfDefense.com.

1. A nation rises to greatness and becomes wealthy based on sound principles and the hard work of initial generations.
2. Eventually, being wealthy becomes the natural expectation… an entitlement, rather than a goal to work hard for and achieve.
3. A nation begins living beyond its means to maintain the high life without the hard work, leveraging its credibility to trade tomorrow’s production for today’s consumption.
4. Living beyond its means eventually becomes unsustainable. Government begins to slowly, then staggeringly, devalue its currency.
5. The market (i.e. people) finally wake up to the fraud being perpetrated.
6. Financial repression usually follows– high taxes which steal from the productive, negative real interest rates which steal from the savers, etc.
7. Capital flight comes next. People take their money and run.
8. Governments implement capital controls, border controls, price and wage controls, and anything else they can do to maintain the status quo. People find out who the police are really there to protect and serve.
9. Capitulation (default) is the endgame; the system resets itself and begins anew.
‘Road rage’ freeway brawl caught on video; CHP seeks four suspects
(FROM Coach David: Watch this video. Would you have been able to defeat these multiple attackers? If you know what I teach, you would have ended these guys in 5 seconds and drove away to see your family again. Do you think that someone will come to your rescue? No, the people that could of helped sat in their car and video’d and uploaded to youtube, they did not help. We don’t know if this guy is dead or alive. Did this guy think when he put on his red sweater that morning that he would be in a fight where he might be killed? He probably thought that his martial arts (you could see him do a front snap kick) would help him. I train people to survive against multiple attackers. Do you know how to defeat multiple attackers?)
I recently held a Women Only seminar, we had so many people sign up that I ended up running two seminars back to back. The seminar was pretty intense at times, but I tried to throw in enough humor to break the tension. We definitely covered some serious topics and use tactics (targets over techniques) that are rarely taught in other seminars. Thank you to everyone who participated. Coach David Alexander

10 Quick Lessons That Can Save Your Family’s Life
By Coach David Alexander (1LessonSelfDefense.com)
“When you’re in a fight for your life, you better know how to win!” Coach David Alexander (Self Defense Expert)
Lesson 1: There are only two rules you need to know for you and your family to survive a violent attack. Rule #1: Repeat after me, “My family and I will do whatever it takes to survive.” Now you say it, “my family and I will do whatever it takes to survive.” Rule #2: See Rule #1.
Lesson 2: Avoid. You need to avoid places where violent attacks tend to happen. Stay away from Washington D.C. (the most violent place on earth), Pay attention to your surroundings, don’t hang out in bars, don’t get involved in drugs, stay away from the rough parts of town, get home at a decent hour, etc….
Lesson 3: Escape. If you and your family can anticipate or see a situation developing that could end up bad, then you need to escape. Get the hell out of there!
Lesson 4: Deception. If an attack is imminent and you and your families lives are in danger; you might need to deceive to escape or gain access to a vital target. Throw some dirt in their eye or throw some change on the ground (try this, and see if the person doesn’t reflexively look down) or say something like “Hey, what’s that behind you?” This might give you a second for you and your family to make a break for it or it might distract your attacker long enough for you to smash a knee into their groin.
Lesson 5: Neutralize. If you cannot Avoid, Escape, or Deceive to escape, then you must neutralize the attacker(s) as fast as possible. When I say neutralize, I mean to take out the brain functions of the attacker(s) which will end the threat. Keep in mind that the brain is the real weapon of your attacker.
Lesson 6: Use your tool extenders. I consider your body and various body parts to be your main “tools”. Anything that you can pick up or use in order to amplify your main “tools”, or body parts, I refer to as “tool extenders”. As I mentioned before, the brain is the weapon, everything else is just a “tool” to get the job done. Quickly get out your tool extender such as a gun, knife or club or an improvised tool extender that might be immediately accessible (brass knuckles, rock, brick, chain, keys, pen, stick, tire iron, etc…) and shoot, smash, plunge or crash it into a vital target of your attacker(s) in order to shut down their “weapon” or brain. Do this without tipping off your intentions. You need the element of surprise in order to get in the first strike. If you wait until your attacker(s) get in the first strike, then you will be dead, and so will your family. The person that strikes first wins (lives). Remember, you have done everything to avoid this situation (lessons 1 – 4) and now your only choice is for you and your family to do whatever it takes to survive (see Rule #1).
Lesson 7: What “Vital Targets” should you strike, smash or stab? Targets are more important than the technique. For example, you could literally neutralize an attacker by tripping, falling and landing on their trachea causing them to asphyxiate and die. It would not take years of practice to develop your trip and fall death dealing trachea smash strike. The technique does not have to be pretty, just keep going after your attacker(s) vital targets, with your tools, until they are unconscious, incapacitated or dead. So what targets should you and your family strike, smash or stab (assuming you don’t have a gun or could not get to your gun)?
Men: Eyes, Trachea (front of neck), Vagus Nerve (side of neck), Back of neck (spine), Groin (including pubic symphysis), Solar Plexus and Liver.
Women: Eyes, Trachea, Groin
Kids (depending on age, size): Groin, Eyes (When they strike the groin, it will cause a reflex, like a hand moving off of a hot stove, of the attacker bending over and bringing their eyes within range for your kids to gouge). Remember Rule #1.
More “targets” can be added with experience and training. See http://www.1lessonselfdefense.com for more info. When you’re in a kill or be killed worst case scenario, your kid’s (depending on age and size) need to be trained to help out the family or themselves. You have probably trained them to fire a gun, why not also train them to end a threat with their hands?
Lesson 8: How to strike a “Vital Target”? You need to strike a vital target (Eyes, Throat, Groin, Solar Plexus, etc…) by moving your body weight into your attacker and through a tool (gun, knife, club, improvised tool extender or body part tools such as hammerfists, palm heels, knees, fingers, thumbs, elbows, forearms, shins, boots, etc…) in order to cause an injury to your attacker(s), so you and your family can get away. Your goal should be to render your attacker(s) unconscious, incapacitated or dead. Your goal is not to “beat up” your attacker(s), but to end the threat as quickly as possible to get your family home safe. Do not stop injuring targets until you feel the threat is completely neutralized and you and your family could safely turn your backs on the attacker(s) and get away.
Lesson 9: Get the hell out of there! Do not wait for the police to arrive. You could be arrested and say something stupid in the heat of the moment. Go call an attorney and let your attorney contact the police. You also don’t want other people to come on the scene, see what is happening and assume (incorrectly) that the people you’re stomping and smashing are the good guys and they need to help them out. Friends or gang associates of your attacker(s) might show up and want some revenge on the family that took out their buddies. You might get caught in a riot.
Lesson 10: Take lessons in a target based self defense/protection system and not a martial art. Martial arts are way to technical, take way too long to learn and are geared to defend against people from the past (think about it). Also, over the years a lot of martial arts have been turned into sport based systems. Some of the old school moves, that might have helped you in a real worst case scenario attack, have been taken out of their program so that people can spar for points and submissions and to train without injuring the other person. You can’t “Tap Out” in the real world. Or they will hold back the “good stuff” until you finally reach your black belt. Do you have time to wait and get a black belt and hope that what you learn will actually work in the real world? What if you need to survive an attack right now? What are you going to do?
I hope you enjoyed my first post. I am not a writer, but do my best to get the information presented in a logical manner. Be safe, and always remember Rule #1!

How to spot a sociopath – 10 red flags that could save you from being swept under the influence of a charismatic nut job.
(NaturalNews) One of the more offensive duties of being an investigative journalist istaking out the trash— exposing liars, fraudsters, con artists and scammers for the people they truly are. Each time we investigate a sociopath, we find that they always have a little cult group following of spellbound worshippers who consider that particular sociopath to be a “guru” or “prophet.”
Sociopaths are masters at influence and deception. Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they’re extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they’re just making them up out of thin air. Here, I’m going to present quotes and videos of some legendary sociopaths who convinced everyday people to participate in mass suicides. And then I’m going to demonstrate how and why similar sociopaths are operating right now… today.
Why cover this subject? I’ve seen a lot of people get hoodwinked, scammed or even harmed by sociopaths, and it bewilders me that people are so easily sucked into their destructive influence. I want to share with NaturalNews readers the warning signs of sociopaths so that you can spot them, avoid them, and save yourself the trouble of being unduly influenced by them.
Much of this information is derived from the fascinating book, The Sociopath Next Door (http://www.amazon.com/Sociopath-Next-Door-Martha-Stout/dp/0767915828), which says that 4% of the population are sociopaths. The book is a fascinating read.
10 signs for spotting a sociopath
#1) Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following just because people want to be around them. They have a “glow” about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction. They often appear to be sexy or have a strong sexual attraction. Not all sexy people are sociopaths, obviously, but watch out for over-the-top sexual appetites and weird fetishes.
#2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn’t do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky.
#3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others.
#4) Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.
#5) Sociopaths seek to dominate others and “win” at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.
#6) Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them. Their high IQs often makes them dangerous. This is why many of the best-known serial killers who successfully evaded law enforcement were sociopaths.
#7) Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don’t actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do.
#8) Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic. They are expert storytellers and even poets. As a great example of this in action, watch this interview of Charles Manson:
#9) Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.
#10) Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! Charles Manson, the sociopathic murderer, is famous for saying, “I’ve never killed anyone! I don’t need to kill anyone! I THINK it! I have it HERE! (Pointing to his temple.) I don’t need to live in this physical realm…”
Watch Charles Manson saying this at the 3:05 mark of this video:
How to dispel illusion and get to the truth
Sociopaths are masters at weaving elaborate fictional explanations to justify their actions. When caught red-handed, they respond with anger and threats, then weave new fabrications to explain away whatever they were caught doing.
A sociopath caught red-handed with a suitcase full of cash he just stole, for example, might declare he had actually rescued the money from being stolen by someone else, and that he was attempting to find its rightful owner. He’s the hero, see? And yet, in reality, he will simply pocket the money and keep it. If you question him about the money, he will attack you for questioning his honesty.
Sociopaths are masters are presenting themselves as heroes with high morals and philosophy, yet underneath it they are the true criminal minds in society who steal, undermine, deceive, and often incite emotional chaos among entire communities. They are masters at turning one group of people against another group while proclaiming themselves to be the one true savior. Wherever they go, they create strife, argument and hatred, yet they utterly fail to see their own role in creating it. They are delusional at so many levels that their brains defy logical reasoning. You cannot reason with a sociopath. Attempting to do so only wastes your time and annoys the sociopath.
Tip for exposing sociopaths: Start fact-checking something they claim
One simple method for dispelling sociopathic delusion is to start fact checking their claims. Do any of their claims actually check out? If you start digging, you will usually find an inconsistency. Confront the suspected sociopath with the inconsistency and see what happens: Most sociopaths will become angry or aggressive when their integrity is questioned, whereas a sane person would simply be happy to help clear up any misinformation or misunderstanding.
Beware of fact-checking the sociopath by asking other people under his or her influence. A sociopath will usually have a small group of cult-like followers who not only believe their fictional tales, but who actually internalize those fictions to the point where they rewrite their own memories to be consistent with them. If a guru-style sociopath talks about his “levitation sessions” over and over again, some of his believers will sooner or later start to form false memories in which they imagine seeing him levitate off the floor. So if you ask those people, “Did you actually ever see this person levitate?” They will enthusiastically say, “Yes!” Because in their own minds, that illusion has become something indistinguishable from a vivid memory.
That’s why fact-checking a sociopath requires evidence from outside his circle of influence. Does anything he say actually check out in the real world, outside his sphere of direct control? If not, you’ve probably spotted a sociopath.
Sociopaths never answer facts; they always attack the messenger
Another very valuable red flag to recognize when trying to spot a sociopath is to see how they deal with attacks on their own integrity. If a sociopath is presented with a collection of facts, documents and evidence showing that he lied or deceived, he will refuse to address the evidence and, instead, attack the messenger!
As an investigative journalist who exposes some of the most despicable sociopaths on the planet, I’ve been attacked on every front imaginable: I’m a secret government agent, they say. Or I’m an alien from planet Zorg. I’ve heard it all, and while the accusations vary wildly, the pattern is the same: Attack the messenger but refuse to answer the documented allegations.
If you really try to nail a sociopath down to answering a documented allegation, they will quickly turn on you, denounce you, and declare that you too are secretly plotting against them. Anyone who does not fall for the brainwashing of the sociopath is sooner or later kicked out of the circle and then wildly disparaged by the remaining members of the cult group.
Inventing bizarre tales
One of the easiest signs to spot is how sociopaths exaggerate things to an irrational absurdity. In the sociopath’s world, every explanation is more intense and more heroic-sounding than the way it really went down. Where a normal person might say, “I vomited last night,” a sociopath would say, “I vomited up a 27-foot tapeworm!”
And a truly psychotic sociopath might even add details such as, “And then the tapeworm climbed up the wall and jumped on me and tried to strangle me!”
You might laugh at such an explanation, but I know lots of similar examples that have been believed by irrational cult followers.
Every story the sociopath weaves, often on the spur of the moment, is impossible to either confirm or deny. No one can prove him wrong, since they weren’t there, so he can spin whatever details into the story he wants. “After eating this, I had a three-hour ejaculation!” Or, “The Dalai Lama wanted to anoint me as a spiritual leader, but I declined, telling him that I only needed faith, not any official recognition.”
How can anyone disprove such a claim? They can’t. So the sociopaths relies on these un-provable, unsubstantiated claims to build up a false aura of authority, spirituality or knowledge. This creeps up on followers like a serpent, slithering into their brains and taking hold of their belief systems before they realize what has happened.
As a survivor of the Jim Jones “Jonestown” mass suicide says in a PBS documentary video (see link below), “Everything was plausible [at the time], except in retrospect the whole thing seems bizarre.”
That’s how sociopaths operate. As they’re speaking, they capture your imagination and sound reasonable, even authoritative. But in the clear light of day, what they are actually saying is absurd… even dangerous.
But no matter what fictions are presented by the sociopath, they always present him in the light of a hero — sometimes even a saint — who sacrifices his life for the good of others. He often talks of “healing” or “detoxification” or being “cleansed.” When he is exposed by truth-tellers, he merely accuses the truth-tellers of being secret undercover agents. When he is accused of sexual assault by one of his own followers (a common occurrence in these circles), he denounces her as an enemy or a spy.
The ultimate destination of a sociopath is to destroy himself and take as many willing victims with him as possible. This is the Jim Jones scenario: Drink the Kool-Aid laced with poison, and thereby prove your worth to your entire cult group.
A common theme of poison, sainthood, redemption
Interestingly, many sociopaths do indeed center their actions around a bizarre food or drink theme, often demanding their members eat or drink poisonous or highly offensive substances that no rational person would otherwise consume. The Heaven’s Gate cult, for example, was led by a classic sociopath named Marshall Applewhite. He managed to convince 38 followers to kill themselves by eating applesauce laced with phenobarbital.
Watch the fascinating video of Applewhite here and ask yourself: Would you follow this man to your own grave? (Other people did!)
Notice how Applewhite speaks with authority, clarity and some level of charisma. Notice the intensity of his eyes? This is another common trait among sociopaths (including Manson, above). Remember, this man gained such influence over his followers that they voluntarily killed themselves in order to maintain his approval!
As Wikipedia explains: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaven%27s_Gate_%28religious_group%29#Ma…)
On March 19–20, 1997, Marshall Applewhite taped himself speaking of mass suicide and asserted “it was the only way to evacuate this Earth.” The Heaven’s Gate group was against suicide but they believed they had no choice but to leave Earth as quickly as possible. After claiming that a space craft was trailing the comet Hale-Bopp, Applewhite convinced 38 followers to commit suicide so that their souls could board the supposed craft. Applewhite believed that after their deaths, a UFO would take their souls to another “level of existence above human,” which Applewhite described as being both physical and spiritual. This and other UFO-related beliefs held by the group have led some observers to characterize the group as a type of UFO religion. In October 1996, the group purchased alien abduction insurance to cover up to 50 members at a cost of $10,000.
The cult rented a 9,200-sq.-ft. mansion, located at 18241 Colina Norte (later changed to Paseo Victoria), in a gated community of upscale homes in the San Diego-area community of Rancho Santa Fe, California from Sam Koutchesfahani, paying $7,000 per month in cash. The thirty-eight Heaven’s Gate members, plus group leader Applewhite, were found dead in the home on March 26, 1997. In the heat of the California spring, many of the bodies had begun to decompose by the time they were discovered. The corpses underwent autopsies, where cyanide and arsenic were found. The bodies were later cremated.
The suicide was accomplished by ingestion of phenobarbital mixed with applesauce or pudding, washed down with vodka. Additionally, plastic bags were secured around their heads after ingesting the mix to induce asphyxiation. Authorities found the dead lying neatly in their own bunk beds, faces and torsos covered by a square, purple cloth. Each member carried a five-dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets. All 39 were dressed in identical black shirts and sweat pants, brand new black-and-white Nike Decades athletic shoes, and armband patches reading “Heaven’s Gate Away Team” (one of many instances of the group’s use of the Star Trek fictional universe’s nomenclature). The adherents, between the ages of 26 and 72, are believed to have died in three groups over three successive days, with remaining participants cleaning up after each prior group’s death.
This episode speaks directly to the mind-altering power of sociopaths. Their delusions can be so convincing that followers will even kill themselves in order to stay in alignment with the expectations of the group. I know of a fringe health sociopath operating right now who has killed several of his own followers, but of course he always blames them for their own deaths. It’s never his fault, you see.
Sadly, even when one sociopath kills himself (and takes a few of his followers with him), there is always another sociopath waiting to take his place, seeking power, influence, and sometimes fame. It is common for sociopaths to strongly desire to be on television shows or to desperately seek out opportunities for short-term fame, often from engaging in bizarre acts or staging strange events. This is one of the ways in which they recruit followers to join their cult.
Jim Jones and drinking the Kool-Aid
The most horrifying master of sociopathic delusion was, of course, Jim Jones who convinced 900+ people to kill themselves by drinking poisoned Kool-Aid.
And people loved him for it! They felt inspired, excited, healed and guided. Jim Jones was their savior, their prophet. They believed his every word, and they paid for their foolish belief with their lives.
Watch this powerful PBD documentary video about Jonestown:
As Jim Jones proved, people can be easily swept up into an irrational belief in a guru or prophet who quite literally plans to murder them. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown)
This is the other dominant factor we see in dangerous sociopaths: An odd obsession with dead things, rotting things, putrid things… things that would cause a normal, mentally balanced person to shrink away in horror. Jim Jones, for example, was fascinated with death and would reportedly murder small animals and then hold funerals for them.
Jones was a master at invoking spiritual concepts and presenting himself as spiritually evolved. This is another common theme among sociopaths, and you see it among Applewhite, Manson, Jones and even present-day sociopaths who are operating in America right now.
Historically, perhaps the best example of a delusional sociopath was none other than Adolf Hitler. He showed all the classic signs: A brilliant orator, a congenital liar, a complete lack of compassion for others, a dominant, aggressive personality, and the invoking of spirituality to justify his actions. The Nazi Swastika symbol, in fact, is a derivation of the Flower of Life symbol derived from sacred geometry. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KMxmJVtp2Y)
The modern sociopath: A threat to us all
Sociopaths aren’t just a relic of history; I see their kind operating today, in 2012. A surprising number of people continue to fall for the delusional (but convincing) web of lies spun by wordsmithing sociopaths who may operate in almost any area of society: Science and physics, New Age circles, fringe health, self improvement and even “pop” spiritual development.
People from all walks of life allow themselves to be fooled by these sociopaths, buying into their false narratives, toxic products and destructive behavioral patterns, all driven into their heads through a complex web of social engineering, linguistics and emotional influence. Most people are completely unaware they have been mesmerized into these cult groups, just like the Jonestown people were completely unaware… or the Heaven’s Gate crowd.
There are people today, right now, who are zealous members of fringe cults that advocate drinking toxic metals dissolved in sulfuric acid, eating rotten meat festering with deadly bacteria, playing with poisonous snakes or even dehydrating yourself in a sweat lodge to the point where you suffer hallucinations that are then interpreted as “spiritual guidance.”
These cults are operating right here in America, and they are led by sociopaths who follow in the footsteps of monsters like Jim Jones and Marshall Applewhite. Some of today’s cult followers will pay for their misplaced faith with their lives. Others will eventually come to their senses and wonder how they could have been so completely blinded by a false prophet.
Seven rules for personal empowerment (without joining a cult)
The most shocking realization to take home from all this is that people who live under the spell of a sociopath almost never realize it until after the spell has been broken. Just as the worshippers of Jim Jones believed his organization to be based in love, life and light, people today who worship sociopathic, charismatic leaders usually have no idea they have already surrendered their will to someone who does not have their best interests at heart.
This is why, here at NaturalNews, I have always taught people the following authentic principles of responsibility and power:
#1) Think for yourself. Be skeptical of everything. Most people, corporations, governments and institutions are lying to you. There is much good in the world, but there is far more selfishness and greed which is falsely presented as that which is good.
#2) Follow your inner truth, not some external guru. Any guru who demands your obedience is a false prophet. A real teacher is one who empowers you and sets you free to explore your life experience with complete freedom tempered by a code of morals and personal responsibility.
#3) Serve in the protection of life, with or without a church or spiritual group. You can protect life every day in your own garden. Resist the seduction of profit and power that comes from serving darkness (i.e. working for Big Pharma). Seek to protect life, which is sacred and precious.
#4) Value all living things, including animals and plants. You are their shepherd. Protect the diversity of life and the integrity of the continuation of life. (For example, resist GMO and plant only non-hybrid seeds.)
#5) Live an authentic life. Practice what you teach. Walk your talk. Do not speak with one face and then secretly act out another. Spiritual strength comes from spiritual authenticity, and even if the world isn’t aware of what you do when no one is looking, God and the universe most certainly are. Karma counts.
#6) Defend the innocent. Stand your ground against bullies. Resist tyranny. Promote freedom, liberty and justice. Help others when you can, and seek to empower others with the skills and knowledge they can use to support themselves rather than creating dependency.
#7) Tell the truth. It is powerful… perhaps the most powerful thing in the universe. The truth unfailingly outshines lies and deceptions. And even when the people around you may not see the truth, the greater universe does. By telling the truth, you empower yourself in all areas of your life, and you bring yourself closer to true spiritual understanding.
(From Coach David: Do you know the best way to survive against a shooter? If you’re just trying to run and hide, then everyone’s going to get shot. You need to run at the shooter and take him out. If all of the football players rushed the shooter, don’t you think more would of lived?)
(Reuters) – Three men including two former Auburn University football players were shot dead and three others including a current player were wounded when an argument at a pool party at an off-campus apartment complex escalated, police said on Sunday.
Two of those shot to death, Edward Christian and Ladarious Phillips, both 20, no longer played for Auburn. A current member of the team, Eric Mack, also 20, was wounded and admitted to East Alabama Medical Center. His condition was not released.
The third fatality was Demario Pitts, 20, police said.
The three athletes were members of Auburn’s 2010 recruiting class and joined the team that season, which ended with the Auburn Tigers winning the national championship.
Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson identified the suspect as 22-year-old Desmonte Leonard of Montgomery, the state capital, and said he was being sought on three counts of capital murder.
Leonard fled the scene in a white Chevrolet Caprice with two other men, who were considered “persons of interest,” Dawson said, declining to identify them.
“They know who they are and it would be in their best interest to turn themselves in,” Dawson told a news conference.
The vehicle was found abandoned in nearby Macon County.
U.S. Marshals and the FBI were assisting the investigation, Dawson said.
Police received a call reporting shots fired at 10:03 p.m. Saturday, and Christian was pronounced dead at the scene. The other two fatally wounded men died at the hospital.
A fifth victim was treated and released. The sixth was taken to the University of Alabama-Birmingham Hospital with a gunshot wound to the head, Dawson said. He was in critical condition on Sunday.
“This is a tragic day for the Auburn family,” Mayor Bill Ham Jr. told Reuters. “It’s just beyond my capacity to understand. It’s senseless.”
Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said the county, which includes Auburn, typically suffers annual homicides “in the single digits.”
“This is pretty much unprecedented,” Jones said.
Phillips was from Roanoke, Alabama, and Christian was from Valdosta, Georgia. Mack is from St. Matthews, South Carolina.
“This is a sad, sad day for everyone associated with the entire Auburn family. I am devastated by the passing of three young men … and my heart goes out to their families,” Auburn head football coach Gene Chizik said in a statement. “We have a lot of people on our football team that are hurting right now and we’re going to do everything we can to help them get through this.”
