I’ve been around people who are really anti-police, anti-government, so I know their thinking. I had to know their thinking, to survive. So I see similarities in personality, behaviours, motivations, in people who are of the same mindset.
They consider themselves outside of the law, and should not have to confirm to law. Often they fit the Psychopath, or Sociopath – now known as Anti-social Personality Disorder – profile. They don’t believe they should have to conform to laws. They feel they are above the law, and should be able to do as they wish, no matter how violent/harmful, with no consequences.
Now, they are confirming these types – labelled as ‘sovereign citizens’ are considered likely terrorists.
Doesn’t surprise me, at all. They are dangerous people. I know because the psychopath/sociopath who horrifically abused me in captivity for several years (and went to prison due to this), had this mindset. He felt above the law, hated the police, hated government officials of any type. He loved guns and knives and liked to threaten people with them, as he did often. He was violent and aggressive, in many different forms. He said he had killed people and got away with it.
I can see how these violence loving types, within groups, would be easily encouraged to commit crimes of a violent type, against those they consider the enemy – like the police/government.
It’s also worrying how many of them are about. They have alarmingly large followings on social media.
It must require considerable policing, to be tracking these ‘domestic anti-government’ extremists. As well as tracking and intercepting all the other forms of terrorists.
A quote from the above link, from someone who is identified as a ‘sovereign terrorist’
“If you are a sovereign person, you make the laws for yourself. You decide in your own conscience what you want to do.”
The real issue lies, in them having no conscience. So, they can do as they wish, no matter how violent, and in a calm and remorseless manner.
If you are someone with no conscience, you can do anything and not feel shame. Not feel remorse. They can feel satisfaction. They have the retaliation/revenge mindset.
That – scares me so much. Which is why I am always very suspicious of anti-police, anti-government types. They are unpredictable and potentially dangerous.
