i can make this personal-- there is currently a group of sociopaths attempting to restrict my lawful use of the library. this is how they approach it: they come on to the librarian who has had contact with me ( how do they know this? they are a team, and function as a team, with divided responsibilites. there was an advance scout with a buzzcut and an earing, who observed me from the moment i entered the library. then he called the following guy who showed up, and was obliquely threatening towards said librarian during their conversation which 'following guy' initiated. 'following people' are very interested in getting said librarian to answer this question: do you want him to be here? the librarian forgets whatever (little) training they received, and answers 'yes,' to the question, 'would you like us to get him out of here, for you?' you might think, 'what is wrong with that?' doesn't the librarian have the right to have a personal opinion, and to share it, if he/she so chooses? / Ah, but that is an ignorant reaction. this ignorant reaction---similar to the rush to judgment that occurred after john kennedy was assassinated-- comes from having your head in a metaphorical box, thus being unable to see outside of it. The reason the sociopath is 'very interested' in getting that question answered is , in their mind they can then claim to be rescuing the poor library from having to have any doings with me. they will act in an illegal manner to save the librarian who answered something like, ' i'm supposed to allow equal access to everybody, but since you asked what i thought as a person, i'll tell you: i don't like him.' that is in essence forcing the clerk to answer the question, ' would you take a bullet for this individual?' // what would you say? that is why i have advised the librarians not to let the conversation with these sociopathic 'patrons' get to that point. but this appears to be a bit too advanced for these clerks to understand; or to remember. the thing is about sociopaths is they don't look like whatever they are supposed to look like. i suppose the only teaching along these lines going on is at a very few universities: how many therefore can be exposed to that? how do i possess this knowledge? the target of these groups learns a lot. when i was young i intended to become a psychologist. i got to college and discovered the entire field had been swamped by teachings which were not humanistic, to say the least. so i had to forego that dream. but i still have my own mind, something the jimmy hoffa sr.-s of today do not appreciate. nor do the lyndon johnsons of today. ladybird johnsons of today. pat nixon.
