Political psychology of rulers vs the people has been and is the war of centuries not only from colonial American times but since before Noah. At first I was going to say it is more prevalent in our present day but then I had to consider Genesis 6:5-12. Verse 5 sets the scene not only of mans early history but of our present, ‘And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.’
Tucker Carlson Note: not to distract – but:
This week, political psychology is in persist with high effect considering the Tucker Carlson fiasco. I have spoken of the collusion of corporatism on other programs. ‘A former US Army psychological warfare officer says that Tucker Carlson was fired by Fox News because of the regime’s agenda to maintain an “uninformed semi lobotomized quasi retarded population.”’ – and by removing a voice of reason, the political rulering oligarchs affect elections and legislation: Inside Story of Fox News Purge.
These nefarious activities are nothing new, here we are continuing to experience what Jonathan Edwards wrote with my opening modernization in bold italics,
‘MR. WILLIAMS (the colluding of government and corporatism) endeavors to support his own opinion, and to confute the book he pretends to answer, by the following methods.
1. By frequently misrepresenting what I say, and then disputing or exclaiming against what he wrongfully charges as mine.
2. By misrepresenting what others say in their writings, whose opinions he pretends to espouse.
3. By seeming to oppose and confute arguments, and yet only saying things which have no reference at all to them, but relate entirely to other matters, that are altogether foreign to the argument in hand.
4. By advancing new and extraordinary notions; which are both manifestly contrary to truths and also contrary to the common apprehensions of the Christian church in all ages.
5. By making use of peremptory and confident assertions, instead of arguments.
6. By using great exclamation, in the room of arguing; as though he would amuse and alarm his readers, and excite terror in them, instead of rational conviction.
7. By wholly overlooking arguments, and not answering at all; pretending, that there is no argument, nothing to answer when the case is manifestly far otherwise.
8 By frequently turning off an argument with this reflection, that it is begging the question; when there is not the least shew or pretext for it.
9. By very frequently begging the question himself, or doing that which is equivalent,
10. By often alleging and insisting on things in which he is inconsistent with himself.’
See Reference #9 for the full explanation of Edwards comments but, understand that all that is before us now is not new. And to prove what Tucker says in his recent Twitter comments, ‘Who will remember it five years from now.’ As proven here, that the works of Edwards have almost completely been forgotten except in Reformed Christian settings.
Continue from the beginning:
Political psychology of rulers vs the people, with the ‘imagination of the thoughts of his (mankind’s) heart was only evil continually,’ I was compelled to further delve into political psychology through evaluating mankind’s present nature visa via a look at the shifting of language and thinking, even in the relationship of political rulers verses the people.
First and foremost we need to understand the major shift in the definition, the meaning, of psychology. I can speak to this topic because I do have a degree and background in behavioral science as well as studies in the Biblical understanding of humanity. With that established, Websters 1828 dictionary defines psychology as:
PSYCHOL’OGY, noun [Gr. soul, and discourse.] A discourse or treatise on the human soul; or the doctrine of the nature and properties of the soul.
Now we have to define the human soul. Again from Websters 1828 dictionary:
1. The spiritual, rational and immortal substance in man, which distinguishes him from brutes; that part of man which enables him to think and reason, and which renders him a subject of moral government. The immortality of the soul is a fundamental article of the christian system. Such is the nature of the human soul that it must have a God, an object of supreme affection.
Let me contrast the Foundational definition of psychology with its modern understanding from the New Oxford American Dictionary:
psy·chol·o·gy | sīˈkäləjē | noun
The scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behavior in a given context.
• [in singular] the mental characteristics or attitude of a person or group: the psychology of Americans in the 1920s.
• [in singular] the mental and emotional factors governing a situation or activity: the psychology of interpersonal relationships.
Our first issue with how our Founders understood humanity verses our present is the quantifying element of modern politics and mental health issues. Now I’m not going to get into the mental health issues in this program but, we can see just by the Founding Period definition that mental health is a ‘soul’ condition.
To that we must ask these two questions to begin with: ‘Unlike the Founding era, Where have been and are the Pastors reaching the very soul of mankind with the truth, light, action and comfort of God’s Word?’ ‘Why have so called Biblical Churches abandoned people to humanism to the extent that the Character of a Good Ruler is Not foundational in God’s Word and Law?’
Political psychology of modern times is another pseudo-science. There are a lot of definitions and even a bimonthly journal published by International Society of Political Psychology. And here is the potpourri definition:
‘Political psychology is an interdisciplinary academic field, dedicated to understanding politics, politicians and political behavior from a psychological perspective, and psychological processes using socio-political perspectives. The relationship between politics and psychology is considered bidirectional, with psychology being used as a lens for understanding politics and politics being used as a lens for understanding psychology. As an interdisciplinary field, political psychology borrows from a wide range of disciplines, including: anthropology, economics, history, international relations, journalism, media, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.’
This definition comes from Wikipedia which has the complete cornucopia of history and early influences to the international organization that I noted, with link, above. In short, this humanistic pseudo-science started in France around 1860 with numerous educators attempting to understand the relationship of humans in the larger context of mankind.
Let me summarize the development of political psychology: a search for how and why people interact with one another across any group of people with humanistic, Darwinian, non-God ideologies; to ultimately rule and regulate a society as well as how inter-societal and or cross-national peoples relate.
Political Psychology Made Simple
I detail the simplicity of political psychology more on this program. Yet the simple conclusion regarding political psychology is my statement:
The deceptive soul of sinful mankind is where rulers want dominion over each other, while using those people in their social, cultural, tribal and national elements to be the perpetrators for their (the rulers) intents.
Quick Program Points
I have two additional key points that I elaborate on during the program.
Department of Defense PSYOPs units are and have been used in the U. S. since 2018 for: CAIS (civil authority information support) actions during times of emergency. I relate how they are allowed to be used in domestic emergencies.
A quick commentary on the various agencies that have been involved in political psychology for decades and then on to Rev Willard.
The Political Psychology of Rulers via Samuel Willard
In the Third Segment, I take you into what Rev. Willard lays out as rulers of every status are ‘God’s viceregents’, to which Willard gives this early exposition of political psychology. I will give my explication of the following paragraph in the near future but for now I am underlining the ‘properties of the Soul,’ psychology that is tied to the essence of politics. See page five of the referenced sermon.
‘Civil rulers are God’s viceregents here upon earth; hence they are sometimes honored with the title of gods, Psal. 82:6. ‘I have said ye are gods.’ Government is God’s ordinance, and those that are vested with it, however mediately introduced into it, have their rightful authority from Him, Prov. 8:15, 16. ‘By me Princes Rule, and Nobles, even all the Judges of the Earth,’ and they that are from Him, should be for Him, and ought to seek the honor of Him who is ‘King of kings, and Lord of lords’–which they only then do, when they manage their whole interest and power with a design for His glory, and accordingly manage themselves in all their ministrations by the statutes of His kingdom, which none will ever do, but they that are ‘Just, Ruling in the Fear of God.’ Righteousness and religion flourishing in these, will be as a torch on a hill, whose light and influence will be vastly extensive: every one will be advantaged to see their good works, and to glorify God for and in them. Their very example will have the force of a law in it, and win many by a powerful attraction, to the avoiding of sin, and practicing of righteousness. They will be a good copy, that many will be ambitious to write after–and their faithful administrations will render them a Terror to Evil Doers, and an Encouragement to them that do well, which will advance the very end of government. Whereas the evil deportment, and ill management of rulers, who are unjust, and void of the fear of God, is an open scandal, and of a more pernicious tendency than the wickedness of others, inasmuch as their example is a discouragement to them that are well disposed, and animates those that are set in their hearts for iniquity, and they are thereby emboldened to show their heads, and to declare their sin as Sodom–hence that remark of the Psalmist, Psal. 12:8. ‘The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.’ Those that would bear their testimony against impiety and debauchery, are frowned on and neglected, and such as would nourish them are countenanced–and either good laws to suppress them are not provided, or they are laid by as things obsolete, and of no service–and thus all abominations come in upon a people as a flood, and the Name of God is woefully dishonored by this means–and hereupon the last and most excellent end of government comes to be frustrated, and what is there that we can conceive to be of greater weight than this? If this be lost, the glory of such a people is gone.’
Now just a last statement from Rev. Willard which follows this paragraph:
‘A people are not made for rulers, but rulers for a people. It is indeed an honor which God puts upon some above others, when He takes them from among the people, and sets them up to rule over them, but it is for the people’s sake, and the civil felicity of them is the next end of civil policy, and the happiness of rulers is bound up with theirs in it. Nor can any wise men in authority think themselves happy in the misery of their subjects, to whom they either are or should be as children are to their fathers: We have the benefit of government expressed, 1 Tim. 2:2. ‘a quiet Life and a peaceable, in all Godliness and honesty.’ And it lies especially with rulers, under God, to make a people happy or miserable. When men can enjoy their liberties and rights without […] [harassment] and oppression–when they can live without fear of being borne down by their more potent [powerful] neighbors–when they are secured against violence, and may be righted against them that offer them any injury, without fraud–and are encouraged to serve God in their own way, with freedom, and without being imposed upon contrary to the Gospel precepts– now are they a happy people. But this is to be expected from none other but men just and pious: they that are otherwise, will themselves be oppreneur, and they that are influenced by them, and dependent on them, will add to the grievance. They that should look after them will do it fast enough: Yes, everyone will usurp a license to do so to his neighbor upon an advantage–and such a people must needs groan under an intolerable burden. Besides, it is a great truth, that the mercies and judgments of God come upon a people, according as their rulers carry themselves in managing of the trust which God has committed to them. Just and zealous rulers are men that ‘Stand in the Gap,’ and keep off judgments from a sinning people; God sought for one such, Ezek. 22:30. They turn away wrath, when it has made an inroad; so it is recorded of Phinehas that he did, Ps. 106:30., and God is wont to bless such a people, as He did Israel and Judah in the days of David, Solomon, Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah, and Josiah–whereas when these fall into such sins as God is provoked at, the people are like to smart for it…’
Sam Adams Wisdom
TO STEPHEN SAYRE.
[MS., Samuel Adams Papers, Lenox Library.] Boston 23 Novr, 1770
‘You will observe by the inclosed papers, to how great a degree ministerial Instructions are enforced here. They not only prescribe to the Assembly which ought to be free the forms of Legislation in the most essential Parts, but even annihilate the Powers of the Governor vested in him by Charter. Could it possibly be imagined that a man who is bone of our Bone, & flesh of our flesh—who boasts that his Ancestors were of the first Rank & figure in the Country, who has had all the Honors lavishly heaped upon him which his Fellow Citizens had it in their power to bestow, who with all the Arts of personal Address professes the strongest Attachment to his native Country & the most tender feeling for its Rights. Could it be imagined that such a Man shoulsd be so lost to all sense of Gratitude & publick Love, as to aid the Designs of despotick power for the sake of rising a single step higher.
“Who would not weep if such a Man there be
Who would not weep if H——-n were he.”
Aut Caesar aut nullus, is inscribed on the Hearts of some Men who have neither Caesars Learning nor Courage. Caesar three times refused the Crown; His Heart & his Tongue evidently gave each other the Lye. Our modern GREAT MAN, would fain have it thought that he has refused a Government, which his Soul is every day panting after & without the Possesion of which his Ambition & Lust of Power will perpetually torment him.’
ARTICLE SIGNED “CANDIDUS.”
[Boston Gazette, October 14, 1771.]
‘…If therefore a people will not be free; if they have not virtue enough to maintain their liberty against a presumptuous invader, they deserve no pity, and are to be treated with contempt and ignominy. Had not Caesar seen that Rome was ready to stoop, he would not have dared to make himself the master of that once brave people. He was indeed, as a great writer observes, a smooth and subtle tyrant, who led them gently into slavery; “and on his brow, ‘ore daring vice deluding virtue smil’d”. By pretending to be the peoples greatest friend, he gain’d the ascendency over them: By beguiling arts, hypocrisy and flattery, which are even more fatal than the sword, he obtain’d that supreme power which his ambitious soul had long thirsted for: The people were finally prevail’d upon to consent to their own ruin: By the force of perswasion, or rather by cajoling arts and tricks always made use of by men who have ambitious views, they enacted their Lex Regia: whereby Quod placuit principi legis habuit vigorem; that is, the Will and pleasure of the Prince had the force of law. His minions had taken infinite pains to paint to their imaginations the god-like virtues of Caesar: They first persuaded them to believe that he was a deity, and then to sacrifice to him those Rights and Liberties which their ancestors had so long maintained, with unexampled bravery, and with blood & treasure. By this act they fixed a precedent fatal to all posterity: The Roman people afterwards, influenced no doubt by this pernicious example, renew’d it to his successors, not at the end of every ten years, but for life. They transfer’d all their right and power to Charles the Great: In eum transtulit omne suum jus et poteslatem. Thus, they voluntarily and ignominiously surrendered their own liberty, and exchanged a free constitution for a TYRANNY!’
