Never Underestimate the Power of Corruption

21 Apr

“Too many pigs in the same trough, of taxpayer / donation money, simply leads to way too much corruption, too many false narratives’, and all of them would shoot their mother to get it!” – John Cox, Cascade Mountains

Quite a quote, don’t you think?  Speaks volumes of the evidence we do have, daily now.  For donations and government taxpayer grant money, the same Grifters of yester-year (and a few newer Grifters that see the possibility to do the same things), beg and plead for forgiveness today.  Why, you might ask?  Because evidence shows us, they have done nothing for the past 20 years, many say for the past 30 years, which I agree with also.  Nothing! Yet, Advocates except their False Narratives’ as a truth!

Today, America’s Wild Horses are in the same negative situation as yester-year.  Many of us see today’s advocacy and situations surrounding the Wild Horses, as the worst it has ever been previously.  By far the worst!  Yes, far worse than ever before, and the only thing, in reality that has developed?  Well, the Grifters have honed their bullshit to extravagant methodology.  Many can tear-up and cry on the spot, then ask for forgiveness – then do the same things, again and again, again in the years to follow; that is, until there are no more Wild Horses left to Exploit!  Take the money and run, is and remains their mantra.

They move on to another scam, another way to make their living – while the rest, the majority of those who did not listen, and decided to “Shoot the Messenger”, go without the things we love; which here, we speak of the Wild Horses.

“Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” – George Carlin

“The Dunning-Kruger Effect” is a type of cognitive bias in which people believe that they are smarter and more capable than they really are. Essentially, low ability people do not possess the skills needed to recognize their own incompetence. The combination of poor self-awareness and low cognitive ability leads them to overestimate their own capabilities.”

“Low performers are unable to recognize the skill and competence levels of other people, which is part of the reason why they consistently view themselves as better, more capable, and more knowledgeable than others.” 

For more info, follow this link.  You will obtain a better understanding of what the current development, as well as those Grifters who are taking advantage of you, precisely, and still today.  I think you will perceive, and see much of this situation, we term the Dunning-Kruger Effect; which, I have covered in detail over the years.

Here are the answers, some of them anyway, within a psychological context, to many questions; in particular, of what I write constantly, and explain it in many different ways and methods, to get the point across — but people want to shoot the messenger, and those I speak of, frankly, do not want you to read my articles.  We need to fix Wild Horse Advocacy, and rid our ranks of the 90% fake, fraud, and those who, in reality, have no experience, lie about either their education or experience, as well as lie within their False Narratives’, on exactly how to resolve the problems Wild Horses’ confront today, constantly… 

Within the study of The Dunning-Kruger effect, we can discover many ways to battle against Grifters, against those who promote themselves by lie after lie, and against those who would take Donation Money and/or Grant Money, and keep 90%+ for themselves, and to hell with the horses!  This leads us to understand the reasons “why” people assimilate information in their own bias, or favor.  There also exist reasons why there is so much, what we term “confusion” in Wild Horse Advocacy – and obtain their information, ironically accept it as a reality, even though it is erroneous, and as I describe constantly, people giving information about the Wild Horses that is extremely faulty, as they do not know what it is they do not know . . . This is primarily from lack of experience, education, and knowledge . . .

“Low performers (in the testing phase of this research — Horse Advocacy in general) are unable to recognize the skill and competence levels of other people, which is part of the reason why they consistently view themselves as better, more capable, and more knowledgeable than others.”  So off we go into the world of deficient information, and into the world of never finding a resolution, because resolutions are never the outcome when based upon lies, and/or False Narratives. — John Cox, Cascade Mountains
