Why Some People Will Always Bow to Tyrants

As America continues to descend into a vicious police state, many have wondered how it all came to this. The easiest answer to that question, is that we let it happen. No matter how brutal a regime may be, tyrants never come to power unless they gain the approval, or at least the indifferent consent of their people.

So the real question is, how come so many people seem absolutely complacent in the face of our crumbling cultural values, and the steady march of tyranny? Even worse, how can so many people revel in it? It seems like the number of people who truly value freedom are severely outnumbered by idiots and power tripping busybodies. Granted, the number of people who want to be free has grown in recent years, but they’re still few and far between when compared to the glut of grovelling masses that we share the world with.

Here’s the awful answer to that question, and the dirty truth that most people can’t bring themselves to admit to. Most people love freedom, but only as an idea. They like the idea that they can do whatever they want, they admire the archetype of the rugged individualist, and everyone loves underdogs and rebels. In other words, people love the banners and symbols of freedom, but do they love freedom in practice?

I would argue that no, many of them don’t. As strange as it may sound, most people really struggle with having freedom. Let me provide an example, of which there are many in the field of marketing.

In the year 2000, two psychologists conducted a study on how the number of choices we have effects our behavior. They went to a supermarket and displayed 24 different gourmet jams on a table, and provided $1 coupons to see how much interest it garnered. They did the same thing the next day, but instead of 24 jams, there were only 6. The large display attracted much more interest, but the small display generated 10 times as many sales.

Maybe you think that study is inconsequential, and I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that, but let me share another case that will clarify my point. One of the psychologists who conducted that study, did another study on the differences between end of life care in the United States and France.She interviewed parents in both countries who had children on life support. In France, the doctor makes the decision as to whether or not a child is taken off life support, and in the United States it is the parent’s decision.

She talked to these parents a year after their children had died. The American parents were much more distraught over their decision to pull the plug. They still had nagging doubts about whether it was the right decision to make, and they felt like they had “executed” their children. The French parents on the other hand, didn’t feel nearly as bad about the situation. They were well on their way to coping with the tragedy.

The point I’m trying to make here is that most people don’t like having choices, despite how much they’ll argue to the contrary. The more choices they’re given, the more likely they are to not like the choices they have or make. There’s much more doubt about whether or not that choice was correct, which leads to some pretty counter-intuitive conclusions. You can measure how free you are by the number of choices you have, and most people claim to love freedom, but in many cases those people are happier when they have fewer, or no choices. I think most people are simply happier without freedom, which is unfortunate and sad to say the least.

And that is why so many people accept tyranny, and why it will always be a problem for the human race. Because tyranny is so much easier than freedom. It is acquiescence. It means giving up. Tyranny is for quitters, and it amounts to handing over the reins to someone else.  Most people are happier when they don’t have a choice, and they don’t even realize it.

However, there is another way to look at this odd human behavior.

There was another interesting fact that was gleaned from that study. The American parents who had chosen to take their sick children off life support, still regretted their decision. But when asked if they would have had it any other way, most of them claimed that they would have still made the same decision. Their decision made them unhappy, they knew it made them unhappy, but when they were asked if they would have rather let the doctor make that choice, they all said no.

And that right there is an example of people who truly want freedom, and not just the rosy idea of freedom. Those who truly want freedom are willing to accept the painful struggle of having a choice in life, and prefer it to the ignorant bliss that comes with not having a choice. However, it was only applicable to that particular situation. Would those same parents prefer to have a choice in every other aspect of their lives?

Unfortunately, that kind of person is a rare bird these days. If you could ask everyone in the world about their ethics and political beliefs, you’d probably find a wide variety, but most of them would have one thing in common. There’s always some part of their lives that they are willing to relinquish to a “higher authority,” and that part differs depending on their ideology. Most people don’t really want the full freedom package.

So it’s up to the rare few who really want freedom, without compromise, to make it a reality for themselves. The human race will always teeter on the edge of a tyrannical abyss, because there is an inherent weakness in our species. We’re happier when we don’t have so many choices (or freedom), which means that accepting tyranny is easy for us. It takes all our strength and moral fiber to rise above it, because we default towards tyranny (which is defined by the lack of choice in our lives) when we stop caring. It’s our natural inclination.

Just as human weakness and apathy leads to ignorance, violence, and hatred, it also destroys freedom. And the political and financial elitists of the world want you to give in to your weaknesses, and fall back on those baser instincts. They want you to give up. They want you to yearn for a simple life, where your choices are taken care of by someone else. They want you to be a slave.

But do you really want that? Do you have the strength to make that choice?

    Excellent article. “The heart is full of deceit and desperately WEAK above all else, who can know it”? (Jeremiah 17:9). This is the Beast Within each one of us (Ecclesiastes 3:18), which God has placed there for us to OVERCOME. And we all will, eventually, overcome this beast. For the vast majority, this overcoming will happen in the spiritually purifying lake of fire. And after all is said and done, everyone will rejoice (Luke 2:10, 1 Timothy 4:9-11, and hundreds of other verses which proclaim the good news). Glory to the Lord!

      Your insane idea of god is unworthy of civilized people to accept. Your god is a murdering tyrant invented by the mass murderers Moses and Joshua.
      You live in the stone age. You are not fit for nor do you desire the responsibility of civilian government. Religion is the opiate of the masses used by tyrants to enslave humanity.

      • Todd Burgess says:

        Easy there Gunny. The methods utilized by different individuals to understand and relate to a given topic makes them no less fit for responsible community.
        Granted, the god referred to by Rhino is a despicable character in-deed. By one’s deeds you will know that person. A loving god would never do what has been attributed his position. That is a non loving controller, slaver, overlord, none of which I would choose. But, that is who is currently holding that chair. We just have to pay no respect, response, or regard for that thing.
        Over and out.

    Anyone who think that Adolf Hitler was tyrant is stupid. Adolf Hitler didn’t start the war. Germany fought the International Jewish bankers hyenas who controlled England -USA-Soviet Union and much of the white Adamic world !! This diabolical filth call International jewish bankers today making another attempt today to destroy white Europe by FAKE Debt crisis and jewish instigated muslim and afro immigration !!! How stupid is the writer of the article to believe FAKE history controlled by the jewish own press -TV and rest of the jew own media today !!!!

    Truly, an excellent article that explains to so many of us why millions of Americans prefer soft tyranny over being a free individual.

    The reason why some will always bow to tyrants is because The Energy Transformer is blackmailable. Meaning, O’ Spit of The Gob?

    When 2 different Energy Levels engage, The Lower Energy Level will always redress the Energy ImBalance by grabbing energy off The Higher Energy level. For the unwary, Malevolence/The-Bookie/Devolution/”Da Devil”/etc. has the lowest Energy Level. This is why The Energy Transformer should never engage with The Other. Afterall, own anything and everything will own you whereas those who own Nothing will be owned by Nothing.

    The Divine is not only The Spiritually Benevolent, He is also The Energy Creator. Being The Energy Creator, The Divine is therefore Unconditional/Selfless in addition to being Innately-Gifting. Afterall, those who own A Money Tree that constantly spits-out money need to give away that money as quickly as possible in order to avoid being drowned by money !! Yes punk, you wanna be drowned by money or merely give it away.

    Humans, OTOH, are Energy Transformers and are therefore inherently Selfish in addition to Innately-Taking [leading most to Innately-Grabbing when the spotlight is not illuminating. This is because The Mantra of A Thinker is, “Don’t Get Caught”- and all because The Minds cannot be read – or so we think/hope, wish & pray.]

    The Energy Creator is The True/Absolute Capitalist and when He then shares His Energy Creativity, He then becomes The Real/Absolute Communist, the human Kapitalist-Kommunist being merely the Half Empty/”Under” vs the Half-Full/”Over”. That of Relativism.

    As such, a thinker, aka The Thinking Human or The Vacillation that is The Duality of Nature, operates at the Greed/Under-Fear/Over level. Such an entity is therefore easily compromised/”owned”/blackmailed by Fame, Fortune & Immortality [FF&I], FF&I being The Facades/Cultures of Malevolence. Hands up those who have had regretted being “compromised” and wished that they have had stood their ground against being “blackmailed” when it last happened. Not when self is going to lose something, be that something of Fame, Fortune, &/or Immortality, of course. And all because self is not Of Energy Creativity/Absolute-Confidence. More so when The MO of Humans is The Addiction to self-Damage, Addiction being the state which damages self but could not be denied. You know, when the joker, via bareface lying, reminds the addicted to, “Gamble Responsibly”, which is akin to drinking your poison in small doses. How did humans became this Stupide-Dumbe? [Hint: There is No, as in Zero, human who was born with Thought but once Thought had been acquired, one’s Stupidity is then The Father of one’s Egotism with one’s Dumbness then being The Mother of one’s Conditionings.]

    I didn’t read the article after seeing the 1st picture another author that just copies the banksters reteric and has no clue about Hitler and the German people. The only ones for a short time stop the banksters. 2 people the banksters hate Jesus and Hitler must mean something.

  6. Ray Burke says:

    Good advice !!! Too bad so few are willing to take it !!!

  7. Ray Burke says:

    Food for thought !!!

  8. Ray Burke says:

    Interesting comment !!! Getting into survival mode is vital !!! Those who fail to get ready for Armageddon will surely perish !!!

    Our govt. is the equivalent of, well, just read Ex-FBI, Sibel Edmonds book: Operation Gladio, black ops, government corruption, and the Deep State.
    Sibel explains how Gladio did not end with the Cold War and the fall of the
    Soviet Union, but continues to this day in what the FBI calls “Gladio B.”
    Sibel discusses the present-day importance of Gladio B as run by the company —
    a confluence of high-ranking officials in the Pentagon, CIA, MI6, and NATO —
    and what it has to do with the terror unleashed on September 11, 2001.
    Sleep well.
