Is There an Extraneous Source for Human Violence and Insanity?

Part 1 - Who Profits Most from Human Violence and Insanity?

War refugees, and those of us who have been traumatized by human violence and insanity, go on to study these greatly destructive human traits (?) from micro to macro. Because of our commitment, we conduct in depth searches for root causes that dismiss and cross many protective: cultural, religious, and political boundaries that evolved over time, or were put in place to protect their narratives and the power structures that support them.

We recognize as fact that our so called consensus reality is programmed for entropy, or the breakdown of natural order that supports the tiny measure of freedom that humans have enjoyed in this universe.

We postulate that war is the most violent and insane act that humans are capable of producing, but is it really all our own doing? The first question of this study is: Are humans solely responsible for the enormously destructive human and environmental disasters produced by wars and their aftermaths? Are there other unseen or unidentified forces advancing an agenda against humanity and nature, for total control of what we hesitatingly call our world?

It seems that the only way forward toward discussing a possible solution, is to uncover and understand the fundamental sources of violence and insanity on an individual and collective basis, and see how they are connected. If we can establish some inherent limits in humans, not unlike the natural instinct in wolves to stop their attack against another wolf as soon as his throat is offered in supplication, then we may be able to see how extremely high levels of violence and insanity that are not attributable to humans, may in fact be manipulations by extraneous sources that have their own agenda.

Where does the human capacity for violence end, and what takes over from there, to drive humanity into nuclear annihilation? Who are the players behind man’s violence, and how do they influence or control our thinking. We’ll examine patterns of human violence on small and grand scales. We’ll look at how some societies have been successfully manipulated into violent states over long terms, resulting in the growth of violent cultures that have exceeded the normal human appetite for violence.

Are violence and insanity related? One often follows the other, ie: human violence experienced in wars can result in the experiencer developing a form of mental illness called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The fact that more US veterans of the Iraq war died by their own hands than in battle, confirms that war sickness is responsible for more military deaths (suicides) in western military organizations than combat itself.  Children raised in violent homes or institutions, often fall victim to mental illness.

Today, we watch with horror as the architects of humanity’s fate lead us incrementally to the edge of self destruction. The signs of engineered social entropy are everywhere, and it’s becoming easier to recognize how those architects are: scamming us, seducing us, pushing us, pulling us, herding us, into one of two paths….enslavement or annihilation.

I’m now an autistic senior, and I recognize violence as an altered state of mind. Since childhood, I’ve experienced the world and some of its aspects differently than the neurotypical [NT] society that I live within. My autistic insights inform me of a very different world than that seen and processed by NTs.

The common understanding that we’re wired differently is dangerously simplistic, but good enough to explain that we see and process the world differently. Our different vision could be leftover from childhood. Neurotypical kids were shutting down their innate psychic abilities that allowed them to perceive the different realities around them, probably around the age of reason, because they learned it was too dangerous socially to exercise those psychic abilities. Spectrum kids are far less vulnerable to social pressures, and remained open in varying degrees, to the unseen world around them. The traditional age of reason, sometime between age 5-7 years, is a period when most children surrender their sovereign thinking, and allow it to be taken over and shaped by their family and culture.

Autistic people are fascinated by patterns, and I’ve been studying violent patterns since childhood, looking for information that might reveal an organized system working behind the scenes. I’ve learned a few things that may help us understand how it works, and maybe even who or what is behind it all.

Now, I’m an autistic senior, but back in grade 5, I was being harassed by the schoolyard bully who was older and bigger than most of us kids. One day I noticed something odd about Mr. Bully when he was attacking me. Every time he attempted to trip me up, or knock me down on the hard icy school ground, his eyes did something strange. They would seem to roll back and disappear into his head while he was “in attack mode”. It took many years before I understood that he was actually disconnecting from the reality around him as he entered an altered state of violence. He could not have visually witnessed the awful thing that he was doing to me, and possibly others as he tried to assert his dominance in the schoolyard. His blinded, stiff movements were almost robot like, and it raises the question: Was he simply entering an altered state of consciousness, or did someone else step in to take over the bully’s body and mind for a few seconds of violent bliss? One of the best ways to identify who’s behind crime in the modern world is to find out who profits from the criminal activity? So who profits from this small scale violence being played out against kids millions of times every day in schoolyards across the globe? Is there a system of organized violence that induces fear into humans, especially children, in order to milk our negative energies? We’ll examine how a simple scene played out in school grounds every day, could produce a global system of violence used to induce fear in children, in order to harvest their human negative energies.     

Because I knew my family intimately under normal conditions, I could pick up on the same sudden change of bearing, aggressive demeanor, stiff body language, challenging tones, and bristling energy, whenever they were entering a violent state. They seemed ‘strangely’ different, as though they were someone else, and not themselves.    

When I expanded my study from individual to collective violence, I noticed that collective violence took on the characteristics of a social disease that spreads quickly like a highly contagious infection.

Part 2  - How does human violence impact our environment?

My lifelong study of violence and war led me to serve for a time, on the Steering Committee for the Canadian Peace Alliance.

Today, the Amazon is burning while Trump terrorizes the world with threats of more American nuclear attacks, this time on Korea and Iran, and the creation of more nuclear wastelands. 


The word peace in its simplest form announces the cessation of human conflict or violence between individuals or groups. Its highest meaning denotes a rational or sane state of relationships, in which all parts of a community commit to work together in just harmony, with unconditional mutual respect, to maintain a caring reality that supports the well-being of all.    

Since the first tree was ripped from the ground in anger by a primitive human, and wielded against his adversary, the environment has paid a terrible price for escalating human violence. Nothing will slow down climate change more effectively, or heal the environment more quickly, than ending wars.

When Europe’s aristocracy forced their people to fight over the best lands during medieval times, they used siege warfare. Armies destroyed each other and the countryside, as they: re-routed natural waterways, and burned or cleared forests, which drove animals and fish from their natural habitats, just to take a castle and its wealth.

War-addicted European states launched a brutal colonial period that brought waves of destruction, both human and environmental to the New World. Colonial powers that had feuded with each other for centuries and failed to grow healthy relationships based on mutual respect, brought the same destructive practices to the New Worlds. Europe destroyed its own great forests during centuries of war making, and now it needed wood from remote corners of the world to build its colonial fleets. Military fortresses, dams, and canals, defaced the landscape, and destroyed many natural habitats.

Large scale human violence is known as war, a destructive form of social entropy that attacks the environment before it attacks humanity.  Planet Earth is always the first victim of war, as every war makes enormously wasteful demands on the environment in order to build increasingly destructive war machines.

When the architects of war forced millions of humans to confront and destroy each other during WWII, they did not relent until they succeeded in destroying and contaminating huge parts of Europe, Asia, and Japan. Destruction of the environment was so enormous that great historic cities where millions of people once lived, had to be rebuilt. Rich agricultural lands that once surrounding megacities were replaced with enormous non-productive cemeteries. Many agricultural regions had to be decontaminated from war pollution, and restored to health.  

The Amazon basin still suffers because of the contribution it was forced to make to WWII. It was turned into an environmental battleground when sections of it were destroyed to harvest rubber for allied war machines. Each Sherman tank required half a ton of rubber, which takes many trees to produce.

The manufacture and use of nuclear weapons produces environmental wastelands. Mountains of uranium taken from the environment are processed into mountains of depleted uranium [DU] that contaminate and expose communities to unnecessary radiological risks. War-making governments conscripted their nuclear industries to produce bomb grade nuclear materials, instead of life saving medical isotopes. Those mountains of depleted uranium waste were disposed of illegally, by fabricating them into low-grade nuclear munitions that poisoned battlefields and towns with DU, in Afghanistan and Iraq forever, transferring the associated radiological risks from American to Iraqi and Afghani communities.

This is the time to learn how to manage all of our relationships with less violence, and more care, whether it be with humans, the land, or all the creatures who live here with us. Restoring the forests and nurturing them back to health, will be a big step to counter climate change. As we learn to respect nature’s communities, we will hopefully learn how to respect all human communities as well.
