How to become a monster in 5 easy steps
- Not feeling or showing any concern about the problems or suffering of other people, aggression and lack of capacity to share or recognize emotions experienced by another are common responses by people who have been harshly treated themselves.
- When the survival depends on the mutual security of a strong group with a dominant leader. This can be defined by religion, racial, political, tribal or clan or a gang-leader, it’s all the same. War bonds people; terrific fear and distress the individual feels are resolved and replaced in a strong groups-bond. It offers self-esteem, individual identity merge with the groups identity.
- Loathing for people not belonging to the group, the so called outsiders. When religion is involved, group tribalism is strengthened and loathing for the outsiders correspondingly increases.
- Revenge is a very strong factor, combined with all the other points, especially in the Arab culture.
- Leaders are the crown of everything for those people. People will do anything for their leaders when they tell that it is acceptable to do so, especially when the leaders gave their everything to the group as well.
Showing and experiencing concern about suffering of other people
It is known that when people are drinking or using drugs excessively, they will not be able to express feelings of compassion. It is also known, that people who are misused in the extreme by others (raped, assaulted, emotionally suppressed, locked up, live in constant fear, etc.) are not able to feel any compassion. It is also known that children, who are not raised by their parents, but lived on their own from when they were young, are not able to feel any compassion; extreme loneliness, extreme depressions.
It’s also known that normal compassionate people (like most of us), who fall victim of extreme suffering of abuse for a long time, will become as their captives. It’s also known for normal compassionate people, who are suffering from extreme stress and emotions, will not be able to express feelings of compassion and are not feeling or showing any concern about the problems or suffering of other people, aggression and lack of capacity to share or recognize emotions experienced by another
Those terrible situations for those people form the basis to become a monster at the end.
Some years ago, societies all over Europe and America had a very good social program to avoid those above situations (in large scale). Lately, those programs were reduced in resources and capacity. In Israel they call those programs “created by the left“. Those who are claiming that are ignorant people.
An example? Six years ago in 2008, there were people who were homeless in Tel Aviv Israel and they slept on benches on the streets. When it was cold, two of those homeless people died. The whole country got mobilized and saved the rest of the homeless by placing them in shelters and got them back into society.
Now, in 2014, the city is full of homeless people, even homeless children and not a single soul is helping them. They simply let them rot and nobody cares.
Belonging to a group gives you security
All those people without the ability to feel compassion, the lack of positive emotions, not feeling or showing any concern about the problems or suffering of other people, might come together in a group, where there is a dominant leader!
Such group gives those people firstly and most importantly the feeling of security and belonging. You feel at home at last and you can be yourself and then there is the leader, who is dominating everyone and he is so unbelievable strong and knows everything. You can relate to that leader and that leader takes care for the group. Fuck the outsiders, fuck everyone else except those of your family, your brothers and sisters.
All of those feelings will become much larger by the factor of millions when there is a form of religion involved. Islam is a nice religion, where you can interpret the religious writings as you see fit for the group. The leader will define exactly how it will be interpreted.
Revenge can be often an recurring factor in the lives of those people. It can be revenge on the society, which pushed them, it can be revenge on your parents, or on other groups and/or other religions or other countries.
All those targets to the revenge are mostly defined and chosen by the strong leaders.
The thirst of revenge will be burning in their minds.
Revenge! This motivator makes people do terrible and unspeakable things, especially with all factors combined and then we have a terrorist organization or something worse, ISIS or Nazis.
Finally, are you becoming a monster?
Let’s assume that you are kidnapped and abused and tortured for a long time and then released. Or let me rephrase it. You will be forced or you come into a situation you didn’t understand but can’t escape, and you will be trained with the help of extreme methods, which will make you NOT enable to feel or show any concern about the problems or suffering of other people (some people might call it brainwashing). Then you find the group with like-wised people with the same background and the same disabilities, the leader, the religion and the revenge, and voila, one new ISIS applicant.
Be aware, that those above methods are similar as the methods all military organizations are using to educate normal people to be a soldier and to be able to kill!
Outside military analysts without access to factual information on the ground must accept a certain degree of uncertainty. Consequently, what follows should be seen as little more than informed speculation based on limited and potentially unreliable evidence – Wim Vincken.
