Institutionalized Personalities

Let’s discuss self-oppressing personalities…

New York City

The best way to defeat people is to convince them that they’re worthless.

This is because once they believe this about themselves, they continually exhibit lowlife behavior because they see themselves AS lowlives instead of regular human beings.

Then they turn around and complain that people are treating them LIKE lowlives and descend even further into self-defeating behavior.

Nobody is better at oppressing you than you are.

If you take someone out of the game without breaking their spirit, they can always get back in the game.

There’s a difference between LOSING and BEING A LOSER.

Winners lose all the time, unless they’re playing a game that’s too easy for them or against people that aren’t any competition for them whatsoever.

Losers lose and then reinforce their own belief that they were SUPPOSED to lose because they ARE losers.

If you can get people who should be winners to self-define as losers, your job is done and they’ll wipe themselves out.

Preliterate Societies

A lot of the time that people are spoken of as being institutionalized is when they’ve been in jail and then get released from jail and can’t stop acting like they’re still in jail.

That’s a more specific topic that I’m not discussing here.

What I’m talking about is people who are part of a society for so long that they don’t understand that they’ve been mentally defiled and corrupted by it to the point that they don’t realize why they are seen as losers by the general society because in fact they’re surrounded by losers in their daily environment.

For example.. Let’s say you didn’t know you weren’t supposed to wear a hat inside someone’s house, or you didn’t know that you weren’t supposed to have your elbows on the dinner table, or you didn’t know that you aren’t supposed to start eating until everyone at the table has been served.

Nobody’s going to tell you this, but you will be considered to be a primitive.

Prim·i·tive

ˈprimədiv/

adjective

1) Relating to, denoting, or preserving the character of an early stage in the evolutionary or historical development of something.

noun

1) A person belonging to a preliterate, nonindustrial society or culture.

In other words, a Barbarian, Savage, or Caveman.

The reason nobody’s going to tell you this is because a) They don’t give a flying **** whether you succeed in life or not, and b) Adherence to Political Correctness prevents them from telling you about yourself because they don’t want to seem like they’re saying they’re better than you, when in fact they know perfectly well that they’re better than you and the only way you’re going to be accepted on a level greater than the one you’re currently allowed to inhabit is if you figure out how to stop self-identifying as a lowlife.

Feigning Stupidity

So the people who can help you become a better person refuse to do so because they don’t want to be seen as looking down on you.

Meanwhile, the people who are lowlives like you are will give you credit for being a barbarian as if it’s a sign that you’re a great person. That’s because they’re fine with being who they are and they don’t aspire to anything greater in life than what they already have. They intend to do the exact same things (or less) until they croak. If that’s what you want for yourself, enjoy that lifestyle. 😀

This mentality has contributed greatly to the dumbing-down of the USA.

The dumber you are, the less you know about spelling & grammar, the fewer math problems you’re able to solve, the more credit you get from people for being as dumb as they are.

Unfortunately, just like girls who give up sex while they pretend the dude loves them, being accepted by people, no matter what their station in life, feels good to many people and they gravitate towards that.

They gravitate so much that there are people who PRETEND to be lowlives when they aren’t.

It’s really pathetic to watch! 😀 hahaha People who aren’t even good at acting as if they’re stupid.

The REAL stupid people see right through it, but they still enjoy the fake stupid people because they know the fakers are wasting their time that they could have used to progress in life, and next year, that same person is still going to be right there in the gutter with them instead of off enjoying the life they were supposed to live.

Meanwhile, what people with potential DON’T want to do is the tough thing, which is strive for greatness on your own.

If you’re the smartest person in a room then you’re in the wrong room.

You can only get better at things via practice and learning from people who are already better than you.

If everyone you know is doing less than you are, you need to go find mentors or schools or online education or SOMETHING that’s going to pull you forward instead of remaining stagnant or backsliding.

Enter The Institutionalized Personality

Why would someone strive for excellence when they’ve already built the roadmap to their lives in their minds which goes nowhere but where they currently are?

Why would someone who feels like he or she is a loser want to compound their misery by attempting to be a winner and getting smacked down by actual winners?

Why should someone better than they are help them become better than they currently are?

Why would they believe it when someone who’s already accomplished things in life tells them that they see potential in them and want to help them succeed?

Why would this winner see potential in a person who already “knows” they’re a loser?.. This person must be a poor judge of character. This person doesn’t know them well enough yet to understand how much of a loser they are.

Why should this loser go for that acting audition or fill out that application for a job?

Why shouldn’t this loser have a kid even though they aren’t enjoying life THEMSELVES making minimum wage, and kids cost something like $30,000/year that they don’t have?

Why shouldn’t this loser abandon his or her kid(s) since their father abandoned them?

The decision to oppress yourself is clearly a self-fulfilling prophecy.

You don’t want to be treated like a lowlife, but you self-identify as a lowlife.

You want to be treated like a regular person but you don’t carry yourself like a regular person.

You want a better job, or a job at all, but you didn’t make yourself the type of person that someone wants to pay to spend your time working for them.

You complain that you don’t get selected for jobs when you fill out applications, but you never even bothered to get your GED and convince people that you were TRYING to better yourself.

You complain that all women are whores, but YOU aren’t the type of dude that can pull regular women. It isn’t THEIR fault. It’s YOURS.

You complain that dudes pump you and dump you, but you aren’t the type of chick that’s bringing *ANYTHING* to the table other than looks and the ability to spread your legs.

There’s nobody better at oppressing yourself than you are.

Yes.. Your situation is partially because of accident of birth, partially because of who your parents were or weren’t, partially because of whether you paid attention in school or not or got a scholarship to college or not, partially because of the job opportunities you had or didn’t have, partially because of the social circles you were allowed to socialize in.

But you can make a decision TODAY to strive for the best you can get out of life.

Stop oppressing yourself and concentrate your mental energy on envisioning what would be a better life to you, write up a plan on how to get there from here, and implement that plan ASAP.

When people see you carrying yourself as someone who wants to succeed, some of the people will help you because you’re helping yourself, and other people will try to claw you back down into the barrel with them because misery loves company.

Everyone is given a different set of abilities. It’s your job to find out what you’re good at, what you like to do, what you can be successful at, and how you can see yourself advancing in life instead of remaining stagnant.

It’s also your job to recognize that your society has institutionalized you and you need to reverse that process so you can be whoever you were actually meant to be.

Grab ‘Em

I wanted to discuss this topic because I received a question from a reader asking what was wrong with what Trump said on his Billy Bush tape.

Initially, I didn’t even know where to *START* with what was wrong with that tape! 😀

While I was trying to figure out how to explain it, I decided that I needed context, so I considered the person’s environment.

Having done that, the first thing I said was:

“Well….. I understand why YOU wouldn’t understand what’s wrong with what Trump said.”

I wasn’t trying to be funny. 😀 It’s that it had occurred to me that in the context of that person’s daily environment, what Trump said was something this person’s friends, father, and potentially grandfather would have said.

When you have an institutionalized language pattern that’s been passed down over generations, and little-to-no interaction with higher-level society, there’s no way you would be able to comprehend why people were aghast at that situation.

It’s like if you didn’t know that Columbus got lost, never made it to India, but called the people here “Indians” ANYWAY, you wouldn’t know why people look at you like o_O when you call them Indians.

It isn’t your fault. You’re just uneducated.

That’s the problem, however. Even asking the question of what’s wrong with what Trump said indicates a lack of involvement in general society, which is going to cause people to offer you a different set of opportunities, including potentially none at all, even though they won’t tell you that because of Political Correctness like I said earler.

Another problem in explaining the situation is that the horror is based on people either not believing reality or not wanting to accept reality.

Not that I believe a word that Trump says because he just says whatever he wants regardless of what the truth is, but there are definitely dudes who do what Trump told Billy Bush he does. I’m not saying Trump wasn’t just telling stories to try to impress Bush, but what Trump was talking about definitely describes an active sector of American society.

So part of my explanation of what was “wrong” with what Trump said had to include the part about people not wanting to believe that people who do that actually exist, which isn’t a realistic worldview.

Another part of my explanation had to do with the fact that Trump is running for PotUS.

I’m not running for PotUS, so I don’t know how that feels, and I say and do whatever I want.

I do, however, understand why Presidential candidates are scrutinized, because these are the people who are going to make up laws and potentially appoint Supreme Court justices.

If you take Trump’s word for what he’s said he’s done, if you elect someone like that as President, all kinds of laws are going to change, including Sexual Assault laws.

If you’re a woman or a girl or a guy who has daughters, sisters, mothers, or grandmothers, you’re going to have to live with that change of laws, especially if you had a part in getting him elected.

The bottom line being that by that Billy Bush tape, Trump self-identified as a lowlife.

What difference would that make to someone institutionalized to accepting lowlives as normal society?

How would the institutionalized person understand the penalties applied for people’s language when they’ve never experienced a penalty themselves?

How would they understand running for office when they never have?

How would they understand people not wanting to do business with someone because of something they said?

How would they understand that THEY should watch their language if they intend to ever be a part of mainstream society?

Why would they WANT to be a part of mainstream society if they already consider themselves lowlives and figure they’ll never be accepted by regular people anyway?

Why would anybody in mainstream society treat someone who doesn’t want to be a part of mainstream society as if they’re a 1st class citizen?

Who Made Who[m]? Who Made You?

Let’s add to this discussion how lowlives talk about people who properly advance in life and move on to do great things.

They say those people are sellouts. 😀 haha They think that the advancing people are doing something abnormal, when in fact the lowlives are abnormal for giving up on life and not striving to be the greatest person they can become.

That’s what you’re here in the USA for.. To make something of yourself.

If you want to be nothing, you can live in a rice paddy somewhere and stop wasting our oxygen.

The people with potential see and hear how successful people are shunned and they’d rather be accepted, so they play dumb to fit in with everyone else.

By the time they decide they want to get on with their real lives, it’s too late.. They ARE “everyone else”.

Let’s also add how these losers blame it all on everyone OTHER than themselves.

It was YOUR decision not to pay attention in school.

It was YOUR decision to get hooked on drugs.

It was YOUR decision to get that chick pregnant when you know you can’t even afford condoms.

It was YOUR decision not to move out of town to find work when the coal mine closed.

It was YOUR decision not to get money as a day laborer and then talk trash about Mexicans when they do the work you refused to do.

It was YOUR decision to keep hanging around people doing the same old NOTHING when you could have spent time meeting progressive people who would have assisted you on your personal journey to greatness.

So now. Just stop.

Stop and make the decision right now that you’re going to strive for what you can get from this point forward.

Stop wasting time with people who waste time. You’re the only one who knows what your personal dreams are. Build yourself into the type of person who strives to make that happen. Build your community into a supportive group that will encourage you to be the best you can be.

Stop basing YOUR potential for success on what you see people around you achieving. You aren’t them and they aren’t you.

Recognize whether you’re mentally institutionalized or not. Recognize whether your family & friends are institutionalized.

If that’s who you want to be for the rest of your life, have fun with that. 😀

If you want to start living up to your life’s actual potential, start today.

  1. Bravo Bravo Bravo Bill
    You belted it out beautifully. You have such clarity and you write with such acuity without involving ego. This knack you have for overlaying truths that most others do not see with words…makes me admire you and today it makes me want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

    A little bit of synchronicity; spent time with one who was truly institutionalized, an Army vet who served in Iraq and then was jailed at 20 for his first offence. Given 7 years, served four. I forwarded this article to him. I hope it touches his heart and the hearts of thousands more who are not only worthwhile but superior human beings. They just need to be reminded.
