National Insecurity

The biggest threat that Americans face
is the behavior of other Americans who act primarily out of Warrior Instinct.

The more civilized we become, the safer we make our lives, the less our Warrior Instinct has to focus on. But, instinctive behavior does not stop. It does not relax or retreat. It is progressive and cumulative. Those of us who act primarily out of Warrior Instinct live in a constant state of fear. We have no choice. It is Instinctive.

We are constantly on guard against threats. If one is not obvious, then we will focus on potential threats.

We imagine enemies where they don't exist. We send soldiers to attack them, causing those we attack to strike back at us, which we then see as proof that they were enemies all along.

Our Warrior Instinct is causing us to create threats,
because we need to have enemies.

But, since we lack the capacity to objectively think about our own behavior, we cannot see what we are doing.

Black or White Thinking

An underdeveloped prefrontal cortex restricts your reasoning to black or white thinking. It is a mutation. A defect. People who act primarily out of Warrior Instinct can only think in terms of friend or foe. If you are not acting like their friend, they will incorrectly assume that you are their foe. It's all they are capable of.

The reality is, that there are at least three choices:
1 - Those who believe one side is right.
2 - Those who believe the other side is right.
3 - Those who realize that both sides are wrong.

But, those who act primarily out of Warrior Instinct are physically incapable of seeing the third choice.
The defect in their brain blocks them.

The reality is, that those who only see two choices - those who are on opposite sides of any conflict, are a very small number of people.

And, they are acting exactly the same as those they oppose.

The majority of people,
see the reality of any conflict for exactly what it is:
Both sides are wrong.

Forget terrorists or Ebola or unsecured borders, our biggest enemy is ourselves.

All of this can be fixed, by simply giving all public servants a brain scan, to see if they have a fully developed prefrontal cortex.

The Bigger Picture

If there are people in every country that act primarily out of Warrior Instinct, then why are some other countries not hated and being attacked?

Simple. In those countries, people who act primarily out of Warrior Instinct don't get elected to public office. People don't vote for candidates that are paranoid and delusional. The Warriors have no leaders. And television and radio hosts don't have shows where they force their opinions, and use fear to terrorize their audience. These people would be laughed at and called crazy.

The difference is us.

Collateral Damage

The biggest tragedy of the Warrior's behavior is that the ones who act primarily out of Worker, Gathering, Inventor, Hunting, and Nurturing Instincts are the ones who suffer the greatest losses of life and property. There are always civilian casualties and destruction of homes, schools, businesses, roads, and public utilities.

The Warriors call these: 'acceptable losses'. Acceptable to who? Acceptable perhaps to the Warriors so they don't have to feel the consequences of their own behavior. But these Warriors are assuming that they have the right to say who dies and whose home gets destroyed in the process.

They do not have this right.

It has never been granted to them by anyone. Ever.

These losses are not 'acceptable' to the people who suffer the loss; people who have nothing to do with the conflict.

If we stop the ones who are causing the conflicts in the first place,
then no one who is innocent has to die.

- No homes need to be destroyed.
- No one's property gets stolen.
- No services are interrupted.
- No future enemies are created.
- No companies that make money waging war can influence the government.
- Corruption and debt are dramatically reduced.

Demand that all public servants get a brain scan, to see if they have a fully developed prefrontal cortex.

It is a small number of people who cause most of the problems.
Let's fix these problems at their cause.
