The Profile of a Bully - The American Empire

Last week I had the opportunity to attend a seminar about school age bullying. This has become quite a problem in the modern politically correct school system and we have decided to avoid using the tools that we once had to combat bullying.

But what struck me at the conference was the characteristics of the bully. I can't include the conference here on my blog, so I found a youtube video that describes what I heard at the conference.

The following video was produced by J Richard Knapp to identify the characteristics of the school age bully.
He lists nine characteristics to help us identify bullies. Those characteristsics are:
1.- Extremely Confident
2.- Physically Agressive
3.- Pro-violent Behavior
4.- Hot tempered
5.- Frustrates Easily
6.- Dominate Others
7.- Lack of Empathy
8.- Bigger and Stronger
9.- They Get Into Serious Trouble

I couldn't help but notice that these are exactly the characteristics of the new United State (spelling intentional) of America. In every single one of the nine examples, the personality that is exhibited by the government of our country towards other countries is exactly that of the bully.

We need to be careful with #9. We are already getting into serious trouble by not considering the incredible cost of our bullying. That cost will eventually bring the government down.

Please watch the video and comment if you think that these characteristics apply to the USA.

The Power of Nightmares

This three hour BBC video was produced in 2005 and has never been presented on broadcast TV in the United States. It has the clearest and most honest history of the radical Islamist movement in general and Al Qaeda in particular. The history is not what the American propaganda organs would like us to believe.

The video also describes the origin and development of the neo-conservative imperialist doctrine in America. The juxtaposition of these two nihilistic philosophies is well done and fascinating.

The film is long. Each sgment is almost an hour, but it is well worth it. Take the time an watch a segment now. If you want to see the three section in higher definition then follow these links to the first, second and third parts, otherwise just watch them below.

First Segment
"Baby Its Cold Outside"

Second Segment
