This is why people with high verbal IQs rule the world: they can, by rhetorical devices and magic words, convince unsuspecting men of anything. Through the media, the “academies,” and political institutions, they use this power to placate the masses into a grand delusion.

Yep. And this describes Barack Obama to a “T”.

This is why I never listened to single Obama speech. I READ them. When you read a speech, the ability of the speaker to “move” you emotionally disappears. You become dispassionately able to focus on the content of the message as opposed to how the speaker makes you FEEL.

You see, it’s not just “Verbal IQ”, but the ability to move people emotionally that allow certain people to “rule the world”, as you put it.

In other words: these people saw the world for the first time as it really is. Small islands of beauty and prosperity surrounded by the world-swamp of shitholes. Most of the world is a shithole — it is the state of nature. We lucky few have escaped.

Having traveled (and lived) extensively through many of these places…..that’s all quite true. Unfortunately.

Free markets, free minds. Question all narratives. If you think one political party is right and the other party is evil, the problem with our politics is you.
