Sympathy for the devil - it seems he is gaining the game

I've just took a glimpse at a post D Bunker wrote about psychiatry and the holocaust. I guess we will never stop asking ourselves about the origin of humans capability on doing harm to others deliberately.
It sounds even silly to raise this issue but I don't know if it's me who has been noticing too much or it's a real fact.
I'm a little confused about what I'm really thinking so I will raise some points:

1 - atrocities catch more attention in the media than a good action;
2 - it seems to me that people are getting so overexposed to evil that a father that keeps his daughter in captivity for more than 20 years and had seven children with her does not cause the horror a news like this would thirty years ago (is it me or do you feel the same?);
3 - in my country instead of claiming you from the police it's better to say you are a bandit. The other person will feel more scary. I wonder if at other countries it's better to say you belong to any gang;
4- I don't know...

I have been questioning about being at the "evil side". It seems to me that it's out in the open and it makes some people proud to harm others.
I hope it makes some sense and I have made myself clear.

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a mans soul and faith

And I was round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around st. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a generals rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
I shouted out,
Who killed the Kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me....

This is Rolling Stone's "Sympathy for the Devil", 1968. By that time it seems that there was still some... I don't know... lol
Help me or I will start talking about the deconstruction of individuality... arg...
I'm amazed about how much is being said about Hitler and the holocaust. I always see it as a way of putting the evil in the past and don't look at what is happening now and history keeps on repeating itself. There are lots of refined ways to inflict pain to others in our days or perhaps every era can say it.
There are far too many people being violently and criminally suffering. As always they are silenced. Their story will be told i the future at the schools.

The crux of the Psychiatric conundrum lies in its knowledge/skills base.

Its Gurus were human garbage like Jung, Freud, and Skinner.

Shrinks can't cure anyone, can't explain anything, and can't Ever lay their hands on enough Drug Money.

With Nazi worshippers, Freud as the self described "Greatest Enemy of Religion:, and Skinner who couldn't even train rats without bullying and intimidating them, as their Own Gods, is it any wonder that Nothing Psychiatrists do works without the Mind Deadening drugs? And even then it only partly works, or goes violently wrong?

Their entire Ideology is Based on and Soaked in Bullying, Repression, Drug Peddling and LIES.

Who else But a Shrink could look up to those 3 Stooges?

Psychiatry Came from Nazism and Proto Nazism, and it's imperative that the public Never be Allowed to Forget that Psychiatrists are Still Nazis. Psychiatry itself is a LIE, because it's Based on LIES.

It's No Wonder The APA President couldn't keep her own foot out of her own mouth in the Vid which set me Off on that post.

If there's to be real improvement in the Human Condition it Must be through the principles which Tom Szasz espouses - conversation between equals, period - otherwise it'll just be more of Nada Stotland and her 99 Miles of Lying, Frizzed Out, Freaked out Sales Pitch of Nazism. A Nazi in a print dress is Still a Nazi.

The Holocaust is Ugly to look at, but if we do Not: Those who forget History are Doomed to Repeat it.

And it will descend upon us with LIARS like Stotland, Beiderman, McPherson, Goodwin, Schatzberg, Keller, Nemeroff and more, in charge.

Those people Are who they Are, and they Cannot be allowed to get away with imposing their Totalitarian Crap on Anyone through being allowed to perpetrate it in the dark.

Turn up the floodlights, and like Nemeroff they'll erase themselves right back under the rocks They and their Religion slithered out from under.

The Holocaust is Psychiatry's Albatross. They shot it. Tie it Firmly around Their neck and don't Ever let them take it off.

Oh, I read the post - I had no idea about some of those details. Utterly horrifying, but still I'm glad I read it.
