Are bullies alpha males or sick puppies?

An article about healing and awakening. If you’re a typical “alpha type,” and if you use concepts like “alpha male” to justify and normalize your behaviour, you may need to rethink your self-image. Alpha is not healthy behavior. It is pathology rooted in childhood and environmental trauma.

Born to be good

Priests and some scientists tell us we are evil and savage inside. There is a Freudian Id, and Jungian shadow, a primitive cheap and “damn dirty ape.” But recent science shows that, contrary to ideology, humans are in fact born to be good. The problem is it is beaten out of us and suppressed.

Rock and Roll Jesus: Anti-authoritarian, political emancipator, and revolutionary liberator

For sociologists, Jesus Christ and the associated Catholic Church are generally seen are regressive, conservative, authoritarian, and establishment. While the Church may certainly be all these things, Jesus Christ was, arguably, not. Detailed exegesis of Christian gospels reveals a Christ not as a conservative, gentle, and passive lover of all, but as an impassioned and committed revolutionary set on progressive social change and fundamental revision of elite power structures.

Ben Carson, indoctrination, and the Freemason’s Wheel

Right Expression of Anger (spiritual anger management)

Anger can be a difficult topic to deal with, especially for the spiritually minded. Many prophets and pundits would have us believe that anger is a bad thing, or that it should be suppressed, or redirected. But that’s not true. Anger is a functional part of the physical unit and if you’re angry the solution isn’t to press it down and pretend you are not, the solution is to confront the source of the anger and deal with that directly. Anything else and you’re just asking for dysfunction, disease, and death.
