    Question: What can dumb and fearful people always be counted on to do?

    Answer: to try to control and manipulate everyone in their environment.

    Question: What is the tactic used by these same dumb people as they try to control others?

    Answer: They lie.


    Thanks to James Lee Burke in "Crusaders Cross"

    I think those questions are suited to partisans on BOTH sides.

    I think you are describing a mental illness.

    Trying to control and manipulate is what, for instance, OCD sufferers do because they cannot tolerate change, actions and ideas that they see as threatening their personal view of 'how it should be." Sane human beings have a capacity to tolerate. What you describe is intolerance which is usually indicative of mental illness.

    Politicians- do you consider them mentally? They ALL lie trying to control others- are they OCD, or just sociopaths?

    I think that when they (politicians) start out, a lot of them really think they are going to do something good. You could say that they are at least partially controlled by their own egos yet, humans need ego in order to get out of bed and do things that need to be done. When those same politicians actually get into office and get power, it is very hard for them to deny that power and ego stroking. After a while they get an over-inflated view of themselves which leads to them wanting to stay in power and to do so, they have to control others by making promises they know they'll never keep in order to make constituents vote for them. Is that a mental illness? Maybe....
