Control and Codependency
in Governments and Countries

Big Brother is watching
"The state is a family,
and I am your father."

Joseph Stalin

"I believe that the catastrophe of Nazism was rooted
in the structure of the German family
with it's shaming and authoritarian parental rules..
because those rules were considered normal,
there was no awareness how destructive they were."

John Bradshaw

It is interesting to note how similar the backgrounds of dictators (controllers) are,
and how similar those of the citizens (codependents) are.

Hitler is a perfect prototype of the controller-abuser. Here is his background. It is very similar to all males who control. Female controllers have similar backgrounds but usually with their mothers as abusers.

  • He was spoiled and enabled by his mother
  • As a child, he played war games and fantasized about violence
  • He was a good student but then suddenly his studies began to suffer and he became a discipline problem at school

  • He began to get interested in mythology and the occult
  • He did not get along well with authority
  • he drifted..not holding down good jobs
  • He had few friends..was a loner..had grandiose scheme and ideas

Here is a very good link summarizing Hitler:his life and political rise. When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
when the wicked rule, the people groan."
Proverbs 29:2

If you see oppression of the poor and denial of justice and righteousness
in the province, do not be shocked at the sight; for one official watches over another official, and there are higher officials over them.
Eccl. 5:8 (NASB)
