There are no Good People. The best you can hope for is to develop the courage to look inward and become familiar with your own consciousness and how your mind operates, reflexively. If you do that, you can develop a “monitoring circuit” that keeps an eye on your more negative mental habits, and that, in turn, may offer you the chance to do better than you would otherwise do when confronted with triggering stimulus. That means “the war” is actually going on inside of each autonomous individual, and that war is equivalent to growth and adaptation of the self. By contrast, the undeveloped individuals refuse to acknowledge and grapple with their shadow
I’d love to sow the utter confusion of a new, political party and call it the Integrated Party, wherein the members all accept that the artificial dichotomy of “Left and Right” is pretty much useless except for the purposes of the reflexive Othering. The Integrated Party would be the party of those whose cognitive ability and conscientiousness inform them that they are not essentially different from anyone else and thus all petty politicking which isn’t solution-focused is beneath contempt.
My hypothetical, new party’s mantra would be “You can’t have integrity if you aren’t integrated.” And we’d make it an explicit goal to help others to understand that the question is “What do you want?” If you want actual positive change, we’ll help you to see that. If all you want is to project onto others, for the sake of an emotional purgative, we’ll help you to see that, too. I don’t mind helping you learn to hate yourself.
