Feeling Powerless vs. Powerful
In the Drama Triangle You Are Powerless
This was originally posted in 2021 (hence the referring to the mask/lockdown stuff as current issues) and was slightly edited for clarity.
The people who are the most controlling (such as people in government) are also the people who feel the least in control. You could also say the people who are seen to be the most powerful, are the people who feel like they don't have power.
How do we know this is true?
If you felt in control of your life, would you want to control what other people did with theirs? If you actually felt powerful in your life would you want to use that power over others?
If a man is what could be called a lady's man and never worries about being without a lover, does he go around harassing women who aren't interested in him? Why would he?
You can contrast that with Biden who constantly touches or sniffs when not invited. Trying to make up for his lack of a way with women?
Have I convinced you that the people who like to be controlling of others feel like they can't get what they want intrinsically so they try to take physical action against others to make it happen?
The Drama Triangle
Visualize the drama triangle: Persecutors, Victims, and Saviors. These people are constantly switching places and switching others whom they know into different categories.
For instance, the media will blame law enforcers for racist enforcement, and label them as "the persecutors" of black people. Then, the next day, they will praise the law enforcement protecting the capitol (at Biden’s inauguration). Rep. Cori Bush said she needs private security, and in less than a minute she called for defunding the police. “Law enforcement” goes back and forth between being the saviors and persecutors by these game players.
Another quick example of the drama game with a hot topic: Critical Race Theory teaches that "Systemic racism" is the persecutor, and black people are the "victims", SJWs like to play the "Savior" with their Diversity Trainings. SJWs will waffle between being a victim or being a savior, and they'll be seen as a persecutor of people (calling others racist if they don't agree with them).
There’s Power Outside the Drama Triangle
People who feel powerless play in the drama triangle with each other. People who feel powerful (over their own lives) just go about their own business and don't care what other people are doing.
Do you worry about mask mandates or vaccine passports? Or did you just take control over your life and move somewhere where it's not an issue? Lots of people are moving. These people feel powerful over their lives to live somewhere they enjoy rather than worrying about being locked down again.
People who feel powerful take action over their own lives, not other people's lives. They see something they don't like, make a plan to change things, and do it. They don't wait for someone else to swoop in and be their “rescuer.”
People who play the drama games of pretending to be a victim to get sympathy eventually become "real" victims. Horrible things happen to people who feel powerless.
The President and many elected officials, and honestly many in the Democratic party, feel powerless. That’s why they keep attempting to get more and more power.
Just a reminder: Horrible things happen to people who feel powerless.
“He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.”
So, because of that, I tell you all to become powerful and how to do that. You become powerful by taking personal responsibility for yourself.
