How good people can take back companies from Psychopaths

In this presentation I show how organizations are penetrated and taken over by psychopaths and how integrous people can take them back. In consciousness levels integrous means above level 300 and psychopath means below level 100.

The strength and weakness of Hierarchy

Most organizational charts end up in the shape of a Pyramid. At a lower to mid consciousness a sense of individuality is not yet developed, so people prefer joining a group and following a leader. The leader is part of another group that follows an even higher leader and so on. There is nothing good or bad about this, it’s just part of human nature. The hierarchy structure advantages: It provides order, orientation and more rapid decision-making for an organization. I am not against hierarchy and authority, but the system also has weaknesses. It’s vulnerable to corruption. The larger the organization the more vulnerable, because the leader loses sight of all the individual parts. If it’s a large Pyramid the top has a hard time seeing the lower parts and usually only talks with the parts immediately below; having no first-hand experience of what’s happening in the rest of the group.

The good, the bad and the normie

99% of people are neither entirely good nor entirely bad, they are a mix. Groups are the same way. People try to malign entire organizations but every social organism has good and less good people in it. Within a religious organization or a political party or a company you can have saintly people and psychopaths. Almost every company has a shadow, a suppressed subconscious, just like the individual. Releasing the shadow side requires for it to come to light. A group entirely run by psychopaths is a crime organization. A trick that professional criminals sometimes use is have the lower parts of the company run by integrous people as a front or façade to hide the non-integrous activities happening at the top. In my twenties there was a training institute that hired me as their face, a naïve and innocent guy to make the company look good. The leader of the company was later arrested for a long list of crimes I had no idea of. I thought he was “somehow creepy” but I used to suppress such thoughts as not to be judgmental. Later I learned difference between intuition and judgementalism.

Maybe you’ve heard the term “the good, the bad, the ugly”. Another term is the sheep, the wolves and the sheepdog. The sheep or the ugly are also called normies or NPCs. These are people who don’t have a focus, vision or values of their own and just follow along with whatever the crowd does. The only way our planet has a future is if we can stop calling the normies normies or even worse the ugly or even the sheep and enlist them to awaken. There are a lot of good people among so called normies. It takes only one integrous person taking action to counterbalance the influence of 100 psychopaths. When good people stop sitting on the sidelines just observing and coasting along and instead ACT, world peace and abundance can happen overnight.

Small corruption

Every organization has people that don’t behave in alignment with the group goals.

For example a low level employee extracting small sums of money from the organization, too small for anyone to notice but adding up over the years. Instead of adding to the company, he acts as a parasite. I’ve indicated it in gray in this picture. Most large companies expect and account for such minor losses, knowing that not everyone is integrous and hoping that most people are helping the company.

A common mistake parasites make is to keep signalling what they are adding to the company to compensate for the fact that they are subtracting. The smart don’t tell you how smart they are, the rich don’t tell you how rich they are, the tough don’t tell you how tough they are, the honest don’t tell you how honest they are. Only con artists do. So if you have someone who often signals how virtuous and integrous they are, how charitable, how socially conscious, how generous, etc. it could very well be an indicator of hidden corruption.

Let’s say an integrous company opens up a branch in a corrupt country where there are already existing mafia-like structures. They wish to take a cut of whatever the company makes. If they can’t gain access to the higher ups, they want to at least get to a low level employee. They look for someone who is susceptible to bribery or corruption. They look for people in desperate need or the aggressively ambitious. If they can’t find one who lacks integrity, they must threaten him or his family. People commit non-integrous acts out of greed or fear. This is how psychopaths first gain access. But long before that happens, the person they gain access to felt isolated from the companys goals and values and separated from the team. If the employee or worker were identified with the companys or in good communication with the team, it would be so much more difficult to solicit him for corrupt activities. You only get attacked externally if you’re already under attack internally. Self-abuse comes before abuse from others. This image illustrates the point:

 

Groups create such a dynamic that it’s sometimes difficult to penetrate a positive team. They stick together and are averse to strangers. So the external psychopath needs to find a spot of vulnerability. Thus, family run businesses are harder to penetrate because family usually has loyalty to each other. But in places in which everyone is anonymous to each other with nothing that bonds them or keeps them committed to each other, infiltration becomes easy. There are advantages to working from home, but lack of contact to your teammates is not a good thing for any group. The definition of a group is that they work together, not each for themselves.

Psychopaths of Everyday Life

Within Group dynamics it can be hard to stop psychopaths. I used to be a member of this group of about 50 people who met up to play Tennis. Among them was one person who always brought his boombox with obnoxious music. He cranked up the volume during the matches. Amazingly, nobody said anything about it, even though some people were visibly annoyed. They gave him looks, whispered among each other but nobody asked him to quit. Why not? Because he had an aggressive demeanor. Imposing on others while having zero interest in what they prefer, is the primary trait of a psychopath. The opposite – consideration of people – is a trait of integrous folks. When an entire group is scared to confront a person it’s because he or she has an “atmosphere” that induces fear. Sheep are terrified of confronting the wolf. So you need a sheepdog – a confident, integrous person.

What can a normie do in that situation? If you are scared of confronting the person, you can ask a higher up. Unless that person is also a psycho, they’ll help. You might be shamed as a tattletale and nobody likes do-gooders who tell on others. That’s how the psychopath would put it. But shaming you for standing up to them is just one of their many tools of oppression.

Because I want to transcend my own normie-ness, I usually try to confront the person before I report them to higher ups. It can be more difficult but it’s more intergrous to give them a chance to change.

After a few weeks of this, certainly a little late, I confronted him. His response proved him a psychopath. I politely asked “Could you please turn off your music? I don’t want to listen to it and I wasn’t asked”. I wasn’t playing on his tennis court but the music was so loud I couldn’t hear the people I was playing with. Instead of turning it off, he addressed his co-players:  “Are you guys bothered by the music? Anyone here bothered?” One person said “No, I’m OK with it”. Another said “It’s OK. I mean it doesn’t bother me personally”. And another just shrugged, apparently trying the “no opinion” or neutral option, which, when a psychopath is present is the same thing as agreeing with the psychopath. So he looked over at me and said “You see? That’s democracy. The vote is for keeping the music”.

What’s really happening here is that the psychopath already has his own group hypnotized, so they won’t contradict him. Nobody from my court or my group came to my assistance because they too are to some extent afraid of confrontation with him. The psychopath gave me a look like “how dare you question me, I’ll deal with you later when nobody is watching”. So the music kept playing.

At first sight it looked like everyone was in agreement with the psychopath, a consensus had been reached, democracy had been practiced. People can really make it look that way.  You might start doubting your own sanity or integrity. For a moment I thought “Maybe I’m the grumpy person here. Maybe I’m in the wrong. Maybe I need to mind my own Business”. Even so, it bothered me. After the match I went to the Club office and said “Is it really necessary that we have one person’s loud music overshadow our Tennis matches?” I was then told that many people had complained about it. Many people! This means that the appearance of a democratic consensus had been an illusion, manufactured by the hypnotic, fear-inducing presence of the psychopath. It was good for me to hear that, realizing I’m not the lone truther so to speak. The higher ups told me that brining your own music to tennis is “unacceptable”. Promptly the guy was removed from the club and the organizations stated values and goals could be continued.

I once had a neighbor who never took her three dogs for a walk, which to me, amounts to animal abuse. She sometimes left her home for days and the dogs would be barking day and night. That’s abuse of neighbors. I have a hard time intervening in other peoples’ business because I believe we are each be responsible for our own reality, so for some time I said nothing. But soon the situation descended below the threshold of acceptability with the dogs howling more painfully and frequently. People suggested I call animal resucue. But I first confronted the psychopath personally, writing her a letter about the problem. Writing to her instead of confronting her at the door would give her a chance to think about her response. The barking immediately stopped as she had someone stay at the house while she was gone. She also moved the dogs to another part of the house where we didn’t even hear them much when they did bark.

The “abuse of neighbors” was solved, but she still wasn’t taking the dogs for walks. Psychopaths often only do the very least they have to do to avoid being reported or being exposed. I moved away before reporting this and it’s one of those things where, looking back, I should have reported. We have to weigh our aversion to meddling in other peoples’ Business to doing what’s right. As a general rule I’d never intervene unless a living being is being abused and in this case, it’s reasonable to assume that living beings were being abused. Abuse and neglect is the way of the psychopath. Appreciation, Interest, Care and Conscientiousness is the way of the integrous person.

How to Spot an Integrous Person

There are telltale signs of integrous people to. But it’s often not by what they display or show openly but how they act when nobody is watching. In one social experiment a wallet with money is left on the street. It contains the owners name and phone number visibly written on the wallet. 95% of people look around to check if they are being watched. If nobody is looking, they pocket the money. Only 5% contact the owner to return the money. Most people do the right thing because they fear consequences or due to peer pressure. Only 5% are at a consciousness level to be integrous regardless of who is watching. They understand that integrity is a powerful generator of abundance.

 

How do employees act when the boss is not around? How do people act when no authority is around? When there are no laws? Do circumstances become chaotic quickly, like in “Mad Max” or do people stay civilized and responsible? Well, that depends on their level of consciousness.

If you yourself are integrous you easily spot and discern integrous vs. non-integrous people. You can see it in their soft eyes, their sense of humor, their compassion, their reaction to suffering, their level of attention and interest, their sincerity.

 

High-Level Corruption

 

Those who wish to penetrate an organization normally don’t aim for low level positions. If the psychopath becomes head of department, then it’s as if anyone below him were also corrupt because those below him are working for his ends. If those below him are making money it flows upwards for the Head of Department to manage. And if he funnels it out of the company you have several lower employees working for corruption regardless of whether they know it. From this you see that not everyone in a company has to be corrupted, it’s enough if the top is. That’s why psychopaths target upper positions. And that’s why you have somewhat more integrity among “normal folk” or at the bottom of the Pyramid.

 

If you have a situation as in this image, an entire chunk of an organization has been corrupted and the employees below will soon come under the spell of a new culture  or leave the department. People below the psychopath will gradually be replaced by people with little will or power of their own. Sycophants. It’s interesting how similar the word sycophant and psychopath are, as they often arise together.

The psychopath has two options: To take the position of head of department or to make the head of department act the way they want. If the psychopath does not have the expertise to head the department he must concoct some kind of blackmail or bribery scheme or both. “If you work with us you get rich and successful, if you don’t we kill your daughter”.

According to psychiatric data, 1% of the population is psychopathic (I believe it’s 5%). That may not seem like much, but if we assume there are 8 Billion people, that’s at least 80 Million psychopaths among us. Thus you’re sure to have psychopaths within every large organization. Likewise you probably have around 1% to 5% of the population who are 100% integrous, so at least 80 Million very good people. The rest are somewhere in between. Most people believe they are among the “very integrous” but that’s only when their lives are fairly comortable.

A basic thing to understand about organizations is that the flow of personell is normally upwards. A person who has been in one position for a long time can eventually expect to be promoted to the next higher position. Thus, if the psychopath who is heading the department has some patience and charisma he could be promoted to the managers position.

The previous manager has retired and the most competent head of department gets promoted to his position. The corrupt head of department may have schemed to make the others look bad so he is chosen over the others. Integrous people are not willing to put others down in order to prop themselves up. They think their virtue speaks for itself and are also reluctant to self-promote. Lack of self-promotion is a weakness of many integrous people, it leaves the field to psychopaths. It’s similar to freedom-loving people not wanting Government and therefore never getting into a position of governance where they could reduce the influence of Government. Or like a good cop not wanting to take on mannerisms of the underworld and therefore never getting close enough to the criminal to arrest him.

Integrous people have this idea that “the universe” will provide for them and that they don’t have to resort to pushy and manipulative methods. And that is in fact true that you don’t have to resort to stealing, cheating and lying. But it doesn’t mean that you should be passive and show no will of your own. Otherwise you’ll become that guy I saw at tennis who just shrugged in the presence of a psychopath.

How integrous people get promoted

An example of how integrous people think and act is provided in the story of Joseph from the Bible. Joseph comes from a well to do family. But he gets betrayed by his brothers, stripped of his nice clothes, thrown into a pit, sold into slavery, falsely accused of rape and put into prison. For 13 years his life keeps declining, but the Bible says that he was a “prosperous man”. How could anyone who has lost everything and keeps losing be called a prosperous man?

It’s because real prosperity is on the inside. He never complained or wined, he never got bitter and never accused anybody. He had received two dreams when he was young which he believed were from God and would come true. No matter how bad things looked, he believed in those two visions. Everywhere he went he was looked upon favorably because of what he radiated from the inside. His slave master often sided with him, the prison guards sided with him and finally the pharaoh – the most powerful man of his time – sided with him. His visions came true and he was promoted to the rank of ruler over Egypt, second in command to the Pharao. Imagine that: A prisoner who was of Hebrew origin and as such, hated by the Egyptians, suddenly rules over them. Finally the brothers who tried to kill him so long ago bow to him. But even after Joseph had gained all this power he was still humble and integrous and didn’t try to force his personal interests but rather allowed higher guidance to rule his life. Even so, Joseph was not entirely passive he stood up for himself and always voiced his truth.

Psychopaths often strive for leadership positions while integrous people are put into leadership positions by higher ups or a higher spiritual power or principle. Some even reluctantly.

If an integrous person holds a manager position all positions below him function as if they were also integrous because their work goes toward integrous ends. That’s important to know. You don’t need every person in a company to be exactly the same. For an organization to be integrous or corrupt only certain positions need to be filled.

People as Objects vs. Human Beings

The non-integrity or integrity of a management position eventually trickles down to the lower levels. A student of mine worked as a realtor for a company until I told her to leave that company because it’s run by psychopaths. The signs were there early. Initially she underwent a lot of training. An excessive amount of training is not necessarily the sign of a good company. Some training is good, but she had training almost every day of the week, which not only distracted her from the work of a realtor but also undermined her own intuitive knowledge and spontaneity. Back then I told her that if you want to be a good realtor you mustn’t spend all your time with other realtors as she was doing, but rather spend most of your time with potential customers, house sellers, normal people. I said “you must develop appreciation and enthusiasm for the house you are selling” – a fact they never taught her in “training”. How odd they didn’t teach her the main factor in selling something. Maybe because it would make all those training hours unecessary.

They wanted her to strictly follow a script. Companies that require a script have little confidence in their employees. They see humans as incapable of normal conversation or freedom. It’s a red flag. During her training she was taught concepts such as this, and I quote directly from her:

Beat them into submission. By “them” they meant potential clients or customers.

Another training point was “call people and be after them until you get a restraining order”.

Don’t take no for an answer. Never take no for an answer.

That’s the philosophy of a rapist. A company using such beliefs are run by psychopaths. The people who work there don’t think anything is wrong, they go along with it like sheep. It took a coaching with me for her to realize that this very successful company is run by psychopaths. It’s not only infiltrated, it permeates the entire culture. The company was indeed “very successful” but nobody that worked there felt good about their work. That’s the problem with measuring “success” only by money.

The most important thing to know about psychopaths is that they lack empathy. They don’t see the human being, they see an object that can be used, exploited and then discarded. A woman might become a mere object for sexual gratification, a man a mere subject to squeeze for money. Humans are used as you would use a laptop. You don’t care about the feelings of your laptop you simply want it to function for you, its feelings be damned. When you’re done exploiting it to the max you simply discard it with little care of what becomes of it. That’s normal for objects, but it isn’t for humans.

So by the way this company talks about humans you realize that it views them as objects. “Don’t take no for an answer”. “Beat them into submission”, “go after them until you get a restraining order”. “Don’t give them options, decide for them”. That’s completely insane but it was seen by normal people as entirely OK, as “motivational” and “inspirational”. Any dehumanizing language points toward psychopathic beliefs. “The asset is entering the building” said the intelligence officer.  “I converted a lead” said the marketer. They’re talking about living, breathing human beings, calling them “assets” and “converted leads”. “Prove you’re not a robot” says every other website. These are subtle examples but in accumulation they shift attitudes in the direction of dehumanization.

Having too much scripted is a telltale sign of a psychopathic organization. I remember once going on a tour of a city I lived in. It was a so-called ghost tour that catered to tourists and told of all the ghosts, hauntings, UFO sightings, secret society hangouts, etc. An opportunity to see the city in a different light. I enjoyed it until the tour guide admitted that he was following a script. He wasn’t personally invested or interested in any of these topics. He was not genuine. And the reason he had to admit it was scripted is because I kept asking questions he couldn’t answer. He appeared unable to make any conversation outside of his script. I would have done a better job of the tour even without training or preparation. The company organizing the tour did not require a human being but a robot who just kept repeating the same thing over and over like a good dog.

I experienced similar on a tour of a tropical rainforest some years ago. The person giving us the tour kept talking and talking and talking without responding to things that were actually happening in the present moment. It was bizarre. There was a family of turtles walking by, one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen, but instead of addressing it, the tour guide kept talking off his script. It was moronic. Eventually someone told him to be quiet and just let us enjoy nature. He seemed to be relieved to be relieved of his duty.

I did a tour led by a native American in the Grand Canyon. He was not approved or licensed by the tourist board and did not have any credentials or even website. I found him by word of mouth. He was quiet most of the time, meaning there was no script. But the few things he did say were profound and never to be found on tripadvisor or other normie websites.

This is why my seminars are never scripted. They are half prepared, half spontaneous. Having everything be scripted is for the insecure, the robotic, those disinterested in present-moment-reality.

I was shopping in target the other day. I heard the cashier say to every customer “Did you find everything alright?” to which they all responded “Yes”. When my turn came  I responded “No” because I indeed did not find what I was looking for. I had been looking for life vests but my size L was out of stock. But instead of asking me “Oh, what is it you were looking for?” she embarrassedly looked down and didn’t make eye contact again until I left. I had gone off script and she didn’t know what to do about it.

I’m not saying all scripts and plans are bad. It’s good to be in control. But excessive control is a sign of psychopathy. Psychopaths need to be in absolute control, granting little creativity. If you enter the house of someone and it’s excessively tidy and perfect, you’ve entered the realm of a control-freak. If you can find not a single fault with a person, be suspicious. There is no such thing as perfection on Earth. A healthy person allows for some control and some spontaneity.

How to take back psychopathic organizations

Psychopaths are found in high positions because they have no qualms about stealing, lying and cheating to get there. This makes some people below them think that it’s OK to lie, steal and cheat because those on top are also doing it. It’s the only way to “get ahead”. But losing your own integrity is not the right way to get ahead of psychopaths. The integrous way to success is being of value to your fellow humans. If you’re of value to others you’ll be liked, paid and promoted. It’s success by attraction rather than coercion. For example Hip Hop superstar Cardi B said that the way she grew up she didn’t have a choice than to lie, steal, cheat, bribe, threaten and maybe even murder her way to the top. She grew up among gangs and she would either be a victim or a victimizer. A lot of people actually believe this, but it’s not true. There is another way called reality creation, law of attraction and integrity and I’ve been teaching it all my life. It may take longer and may not be get rich quick but it’s much easier, healthier more fun and ultimately longer lasting.

If you have a situation where upper management and CEO are corrupt, it’s hard for the company to survive long term. It’ll go broke. The reason for this is that non-integrous people are parasitical by nature, they only extract and never add. Evil people are mostly stupid. They get ahead through violence and manipulation. The only way such a company can prolong success is through extreme effort and total control. But even then it one day falls. Because psychopaths know this, they usually employ a few integrous people for certain key positions. An integrous accountant or lawyer can keep a crime organization afloat.

There are companies that started integrous and have been infiltrated and captured by non-integrous people. Some of them were then retaken by integrous people. All these little wars of good vs. evil are playing out every day at different levels. An organization that is void of values will one day fall under it’s own weight, decay and crumble. That’s the weakness of psychopathic organizations, they require extreme effort to be maintained. Integrous people always succeed with much less effort. I’m not saying without effort, just less. That’s because the practices of integrous people are aligned with the way the universe and nature already work. They ride the horse where it’s already going instead of trying to force it to ride somewhere it doesn’t want to or be something it isn’t.

I’ve seen companies that are simultaneous psychopathic and integrous where you have an entire branch in a foreign country that is integrous or corrupt. With companies that get very big, it’s hard to tell. The U.S. Government is a good example. It’s so big and spread across the globe you have completely corrupted and criminal factions and then you have parts of it that couldn’t be more integrous. So it’s not that the U.S. military or U.S. Department of Justice etc. is evil or is good. It’s both, just like most humans.

One of the first groundbreaking books to expose the reality of psychopathy in a certain segment of the population was the 1970s book “People of the Lie” by M. Scott Peck. It goes into detail of how psychopaths act and develop as children. Psychopathy can often already be seen in childhood. If a child takes joy in torturing animals you know it has no empathy with living beings and it may be a psychopath. If you see an animal or human suffer, what do you feel? Do you feel empathy? Do you wonder how you could help? Do you send blessings or good intentions or a prayer their way? Do you wonder how they might be feeling or what they are going through? That’s because you’re a healthy human being. A psychopath has none of these considerations. He might wonder how a suffering person could be taken advantage of. If a girl lost her parents, a healthy person might think about if they could provide temporary shelter for her or adopt her. A psychopath will think how to traffic or rape her.

The psychopath is known in his or her response to peoples’ pain. Pain is viewed as comical, funny or uninteresting. In our society hundreds of thousands of movies promote murder as a form of entertainment, a gimmick or sport. That’s how you know Hollywood has a strong psychopathic element. Integrous people rarely show violence and if they do, they show it as a tragedy or atrocity, not as fun.

Amazon routinely lures startups in with promises to sell their goods, then harvests all their data so they can launch competing products. They’ve done this many times. When we see Amazon do it we think nothing of it (but apparently many people don’t even know Amazon does this). But if someone did this to you in real life, what would you think? He invites you to his house saying “I can help you sell this product”. After you show him how it works, he steals it from you and sells it as his own. What do you think? You’d think the guy is insane. From this example you see we have a lot of clean-up work to do. People always wonder how to “make the world a better place”. The answer is by removing psychopaths from positions of power. 

A psychopath is unaffected by others. Others are just objects to toy with. A psychopath can stay perfectly calm, like a robot, in the face of atrocious behavior. Most of the things you think are very important are of no importance at all them. Psychopaths want power and domination because they lack empathy. They lack empathy because they are cut off from energy or the Creator. They want power and control because they have none. They hate it if someone ranks above them. If a psychopath does good it’s only to gain an advantage or positive public perception.

High-functioning psychopaths can emulate human behavior and emotions. They do so to survive and stay undetected.  Strong and dominant people often imprint their will on people below them in the hieararchy. This is often more easily noticed by outsiders or people who newly joined a company then those under the spell of a dominant leader. If there’s someone else dominant below him, he will eventually leave the group or there will be war between the two. Finally the people that are left will eventually adopt the views of the dominant leader. If that’s an integrous person they’ll adopt his views. If it’s a psychopath they’ll adopt those views. Once they no longer work with the group there will be a phase of disorientation as they figure out what their actual views and values are outside of the influence zone of the dominant person. People who leave cults often struggle for some time because they’ve lost their own grounding. Integrous people generally like to promote strong people, psychopaths like to promote weak people because they don’t want anyone stronger around them.

Unless a hierarchical group is reformed on a regular basis, over a long span of time it will have psychopaths sitting at the top. This is simply by nature. Psychopaths want to get to the top and know how to get to the top. Integrous people are not scheming to get to the top. This is why there should be term limits for congress members. This is why any organization should have periodic reforms, restarts, resets.

Purely psychopathic organizations are rare. The drug cartels would be one example. Everyone in them is ruthless with loyalty only to their own people and even that loyalty is not absolute. There people are an exchangeable cog. Changing organizations that are too far down the corruption line is difficult for an individual because you’ll be surrounded by people who disagree with your views and proposed changes. Such an organization would then have to be taken down by force, by police or military.

Most people have an intuitive gut feeling about the presence of a psychopath but they don’t communicate it. This is the number one reason we don’t have more integrous people at the top. People do not speak up. Sometimes it’s because they are more concerned about looking good than being good. Or because they fear financial disadvantages. But mostly it’s because the majority of people are not aware of how important it is to point out and expose psychopaths and support integrous people. Then later when they look back on their life they say they wish they would have spoken up about this and that when they had the chance.

Me speaking up against the nuisance at the tennis club may seem like a small thing but it’s  huge. It’s setting borders toward a psychopath which creates relief for hundreds of people involved in the club. It sets an example of how to deal with imposing psychopaths so that in the future, even if I’m not around, someone will remember that example and do the same.

Standing up to psychopaths is not an absolute rule. If they are below a certain level of consciousness you endanger your life by standing up to them. If they are above that level you best confront them and they will scurry away. If they are below that level you best not make any eye contact and report them to law enforcement.

The way you make partially corrupt organizations integrous again, and most organizations and governments and political parties are partially corrupt is by first seeking out the people and groups that are high integrity and honesty. Almost every organization has them. Sometimes they operate undercover or secretly because there is already too much corruption. Sometimes they operate openly and publically oppose the corruption. If you cannot find the integrous group within the company, you can form one outside of it. I’m a fan of forming small groups for specific purposes, achieving that purpose and then disbanding the group.

Often an organization started by a charismatic integrous person struggles to stay integrous after the charismatic pioneering initiator passes away. It slowly descends in consciousness levels unless it can find more high-integrity people to employ. But such people are rare and most organizations don’t understand that this is what they need to do.

You seek out the high integrity people and make them aware of the corruption in their company. Awareness is key. This usually sets new action into motion. Corruption thrives in secrecy. Exposure is the end of corruption. Through media exposure or through court judgement or by public pressure the corrupt person gets fired and is replaced by an integrous person. The new integrous boss will have to now identify all the infected parts of the organization and bring healing to them, removing what doesn’t belong and is not in alignment with the positive goals of the organization. The word integrity itself refers to structural soundness where each part of a building is sufficient to hold the overall weight. Moldy, broken and rusty building parts can cause the entire structure to fall. You don’t necessarily have to weed out every single corrupt element of the organization because the presence of high integrity in a place eventually leads to corrupt people feeling unwell and leaving on their own accord.

The normies at the bottom of the Pyramid are mostly a mix of corrupt and integrous and are easily turned either way. It takes only a little prodding or directive from the top to get them into integrity. If you have the bottom and top of the Pyramid integrous, it’s easy to quash all the in betweens that are non-integrous. But the integrous person at the top must enlist the help of the bottom of the Pyramid. There is strength in numbers. It’s no longer enough to only address top management, the integrous boss has to get even involved with the lower tier. When normies get a sense of positive purpose and direction they transcend normieness and become leaders in their own right. A leader enlisting the regular folk at the bottom instead of deriding them, is the way to overcome organizational psychopathy. Seeing normies as normies incapable of improvement, is borderline psychopathic.

The more corrupt the organization is, the more high-integrity individuals are needed to help with the turnaround. It’s enough to know about the corruption, to widely expose it and to have a strong commitment to changing it. The reason this is enough is because most people desire to be integrous and part of something higher. At some level even psychopaths wish they could empathize. From this you see that the lack of communication about corruption is the number one thing stopping improvement. If you don’t tell anyone about it, nobody is going to know it. But even if you tell and it is known, that’s still not enough. There are hundreds of thousands of people online complaining about corruption. There also needs to be a willingness to do something about it, to step up to the task.

There are many people who are corrupt who are not psychopaths. They merely derive financial benefit from being corrupt. It’s not in their financial interest that corruption be exposed. But if they are in fear of being exposed they will quit or run away.

A great help toward ridding organizations and the world from psychopaths is transparency. Transparency comes from open communication. Unfortunately most corporations and governments believe that keeping secrets is what gives them a competitive advantage. This is true. But it’s also true that within such compartmentalized secrecy, much corruption can happen without anyone ever knowing. The extreme transparency required to expel psychopaths may temporarily appear to weaken the organization because all their dirty laundry is publicly aired. But if they deal with it in a conscious, success-oriented manner, the whole process can lead to greater abundance for the company than they ever had before.

It’s easier to retake a group top down than bottom up. Find the high-consciousness people within an organization and if it doesn’t have any, get external high consciousness people to address it. Fire the psychopaths. Note that psychopaths usually make a ruckus when they are exposed, reported or fired. Integrous people normally don’t lash out, they leave quietly when they are fired.

My focus here is on high consciousness people because if you have such a person the question of what to do, which route to follow, etc. comes naturally. It all starts with the person. Processes, information, beliefs and data are not nearly as important as the people because everything that happens is caused by or relates to people.

Summary

Know what an integrous person is. Know what a psychopath is. Within your domain seek to dismiss, reject, fire, expose, sue, therapize or demote the psychopath. If you can’t find psychopathy, check at the top of the Pyramid in your corporation or government or group. Within your domain seek to employ, support, fund, promote, recommend, share about, talk about, highlight, hire the integrous person. If you don’t wish to deal with psychopaths at all you can always do something good for an integrous person. In our “media” integrous people get less attention than psychopaths. In a better world, it’s the other way around.
