Editor’s Note:
What is described below is taken directly from Political Ponerology (pp 109-112) by Andrew M. Lobaczewski (/content/images/wordpress/2013/12/political-ponerology.pdf) and can be ascribed to greater or lesser degrees to every nation and the cult of personality that encompasses their leader/leadership.  Muslims are no exception and no amount of obligatory prayers exempt them from the realities of evil, because evil requires both knowledge and correct action to be thwarted; otherwise, it flows like lava towards and into paths of least resistance.  It is after all, a completely natural phenomenon.
There is also the occult aspect of secret societies and their fellowship with jinn to bear in mind; many of which are/were somehow guided and /or otherwise influenced by Jews such as Alfred Rosenberg, an occult adept from Russia and one of Hitler’s closest advisers whom very few people, including historians, know about.  Nevertheless, these influences enter when prayerful folk fail to act and maintain a shepherd’s vigilance.  Eventually, without just actions, prayers become little more than mantras of vanity that then cloak the devolution of wickedness.

wilhelm2prussia1859A relatively well-documented example of such an influence of a characteropathic personality on a macrosocial scale is the last German emperor, Wilhelm II.
He was subjected to brain trauma at birth.  During and after his entire reign, his physical and  psychological  handicap  was  hidden  from  public  knowledge. The motor abilities of the upper left portion of his body were handicapped.  As a boy, he had difficulty learning grammar, geometry, and drawing, which constitute the typical triad of academic difficulties caused by minor brain lesions. He developed  a  personality with  infantile  features  and  insufficient control over his emotions, and also a somewhat paranoid way of thinking which easily sidestepped the heart of some important issues in the process of dodging problems.
Oxford PortraitsMilitaristic poses and a general’s uniform overcompensated for his feelings of inferiority and effectively cloaked his shortcomings.  Politically,  his  insufficient  control of emotions and factors of personal rancor came into view. The old Iron Chancellor had to go, that cunning and ruthless politician who had been loyal to the  monarchy and had built up Prussian power.
After all, he was too knowledgeable about the prince’s defects and had worked against his coronation. A similar fate met other overly  critical  people,  who  were  replaced  by  persons  with lesser brains, more subservience, and, sometimes, discreet psychological deviations. Negative selection took place.

The eldest grandchild of Queen Victoria, Wilhelm symbolized his era and the nouveaux riche aspects of the German empire. The kaiser suffered from a birth defect that left his left arm withered and useless. It was claimed that he overcame this handicap, but the effort to do so left its mark, and despite efforts of his parents to give him a liberal education, the prince became imbued with religious mysticism, militarism, anti-semitism, the glorification of power politics. Some have claimed that his personality displayed elements of a narcissistic personality disorder. Bombastic, vain, insensitive, and possessed with grandiose notions of divine right rule, his personality traits paralleled those of the new Germany: strong, but off balance; vain, but insecure; intelligent, but narrow; self-centered yet longing for acceptance.
Since the common people are prone to identify with the emperor, and through the emperor, with a system of government, the characteropathic material  emanating  from the Kaiser  resulted in many Germans being progressively deprived of their
ability to use their common sense.   Many German  families had a member who was psychologically not quite normal, it became a matter of honor  (even excusing  nefarious conduct)  to hide this fact from public opinion = (‘good breeding’ = good manners), and even from the awareness of close  friends and relatives.
… Then came the histrionics that fostered WWI followed by WWII.  Many  thoughtful persons keep asking the same  anxious question: how could the German nation have chosen for a Fuehrer [Hitler] a clownish  psychopath  who  made no bones about his pathological  vision  of  superman  rule?  Under  his  leadership, Germany then unleashed a second criminal and politically absurd war.  During  the  second  half  of  this  war,  highly-trained army officers honorably performed inhuman orders, senseless from the political and military point of view, issued by a man whose psychological state corresponded to the routine criteria for being forcibly committed to a psychiatric hospital.
An interesting comparison is the regime of George W. Bush and the [predominantly Jewish] Neoconservatives.  It follows, almost point by point, the history of the Kaiser and what then occurred in Germany.
The German nation, fed for a generation on pathologically altered  psychological  material,  fell into a state  comparable to what we see in certain individuals raised by persons who  are both characteropathic and hysterical.  Psychologists know from experience how often such people then let themselves commit acts which  seriously hurt others.  A  psychotherapist  needs a good deal of persistent  work,  skill,  and prudence in order to enable such a person to regain his ability to comprehend psychological problems with more naturalistic realism and to utilize his healthy critical faculties in relation to his own behavior.
The Germans inflicted and suffered enormous damage and pain during the first  World  War; they thus felt no substantial guilt and even thought that they were the ones  who had been wronged.  This is not surprising as they were  behaving  in  accordance with their customary habit, without being aware of its pathological causes. The need for this pathological state to be concealed in heroic garb after  a  war in order  to avoid  bitter disintegration  became all  too  common.
A  mysterious  craving arose,  as  if  the  social  organism  had  managed  to  become  addicted to some drug. The hunger  was for more pathologically
modified psychological material, a phenomenon known to psychotherapeutic experience. This hunger could only be satisfied by  another  similarly  pathological  personality  and  system  of government.  A  characteropathic  personality  opened  the  door for  leadership  by  a  psychopathic  individual.  We  shall  return
later  in  our  deliberations  to  this  pathological  personality  sequence, as it appears a general regularity in ponerogenic processes.
A ponerological approach facilitates our understanding of a person  who  succumbs  to  the  influence  of  a  characteropathic personality, as well as comprehension of macrosocial phenomena caused by the contribution of such factors. Unfortunately,
relatively few such individuals can be served by appropriate psychotherapy.
