Defamation-for-power leads to the Lowest Common Denominator, like Trump
Defamation-for-power operators who virtue signal lead to negative phenomena like Donald Trump. Allow me to explain. [Originally a Twitter thread]
China now has a system of “social scoring” (SCS). Information about it is highly politicized and propagandized, so you have to be careful. Here’s a generic corporate overview:
It’s my belief that there are many Americans who would like such a thing. It’s also my belief that there are MORE Americans who would NOT like such a thing, because they know deceptive people who will lie to harm others, for money and power.
In my case, I would have had a very good social score. Then, starting in 2010, when I went on the internet to start speaking truthfully about problems in my family business, my parents would have tried to have that social score impacted wrongfully, through defamation-for-power.
They had the opportunity to do so. I had made them aware of medical information, which was a huge mistake. They were able to leverage this to try to silence me. Later they admitted they were trying to bankrupt me using it with professionals.
Their behavior during this time was so awful and aggressive—while claiming to be helpful—that it helped me fight them as they worsened later. Although they couldn’t pull off things like the forced bankruptcy, they were able to work in my network to spread false information.
They also spread this false information to healthcare providers that were prepared for later action against me. I found this out later, through the providers, over months and then years. I began to understand I was embedded in a healthcare situation that served to defame me.
They did this for business reasons, but extended it into my personal network. They called on everyone they could, often breaking laws in the process. I then understood that no matter what I did, my parents would defame me for business purposes.
False information would get back to me years later. When my parents were suddenly hit with a tax penalty for the sale of a business asset decades previously, they began a criminal coercion scheme against me, which involved them defaming me to the federal government.
My parents were able to destroy my life because they had the access, ability, and power to use systems meant to protect people in to destroy them instead. I call what they do defamation-for-power. One master of this tactic is Donald Trump.
Donald Trump understood that he could harm Obama by leveraging racist suspicion against him, and not have to be too worried about the details for his audience. The Birther media strategy was a defamation-for-power ploy:
The GOP watched in horror as Trump used his defamation-for-power playbook against his competitors in the primary. It was clear that his tactics would be universal: he wouldn’t just defame and bully Democrats. He would do it to any Republican he wanted to with no hesitation.
My mother hates Trump with a fire I know is competitive. She sees another defamation-for-power operator who brought it to business and politics and received a lot of attention for it. He wants to be portrayed villainously by some, and she wants to be seen only as virtuous.
I was forced to live with my parents during the '16 election, and I learned everything. When Donald Trump brought out Bill Clinton’s accusers during his debate with Hillary Clinton, she showed her hand. Bill Clinton was still off limits to her like in the 90s, but Trump was not.
Such is the nature of defamation-for-power operators and their battles. They’re immoral, lying people, so the most immoral and more deceptive one wins. Donald Trump WANTS to be seen as a villain to operate, and my mother NEEDS to be seen as virtuous to operate.
What this means is that in a battle between defamers, the vice-signaling defamer will be able to be able to lie even more effectively than the virtue-signaling defamer. Many people will recognize that the vice-signaler is being more up front, and appreciate it, shockingly.
Why? Because everyone has defamation-for-power operators in their family. In my case, it’s both my parents, but my mother is more powerful with it. So it’s likely that any defamation-for-power degeneracy going on in a society will produce a lowest common denominator like Trump.
There’s a lot more information about how to stop defamation-for-power operators like Trump and my mother on the way here and at @firmboundary! Stay tuned.
