Alex Jones is just one example of the people who prey on others through lies, harassment, bullying and subterfuge and who do so because they are not competent enough to operate out in the open with the rest of us.

We have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to the inherent incompetence of people who are anti-social. Let’s face it, if these folks were able to actually execute their intent, George Orwell’s vision of a future society based on whims of an unseen dictator would pale by comparison.

I saw a discussion recently of how disconnected conspiracy theorists are from reality. These folks believe that world-wide conspiracies involving thousands of people are operating in some highly coordinated fashion. It is quite obvious that the originators of these theories—call them fantasies, really—have never had to align and arrange projects involving even competent and social personalities. The reality is that getting large interconnected efforts to move forward at all requires a vast array of social talents that evil-minded people—who would have to make up the personnel in these conspiracies—just don’t have.

But it gets worse than that. The incompetence of anti-social psychotics rubs off on those around them.

A great case in point is the attorneys representing Alex Jones of InfoWars. It turns out that the lawyers defending Jones in his trial brought, by the parents of murdered children at Sandy Hook Elementary school—whom Jones repeatedly defamed—sent years worth of his private communications to the plaintiff’s attorney. They then failed to label these materials as attorney-client privileged, making them fully available for opposing counsel and others. Jones may have grounds to sue his own lawyers for incompetence but the damage is done.

These communications have already revealed that Jones committed perjury in his earlier depositions in the trial. But that is just the beginning. The January 6th Committee has already requested copies since when Jones testified before them he invoked the 5th Amendment over 100 times.

What’s the main issue here? Simply this. People who prey on others through lies, harassment, bullying and subterfuge do so because they are not competent enough to operate out in the open with the rest of us.

Alex Jones is just one example. Another would be an incompetent real estate developer who managed to bankrupt casinos—businesses that in other hands would practically mint money—and lied in taking the Oath of Office of President of the United States. Look at the incompetence that has spread around this one. The former mayor of New York, the former US Attorney who brought down the New York Mafia, is now reduced to a disbarred caricature of himself. One can’t escape the imagery of Rudy Giuliani holding a press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping. It is sad, actually.

Giuliani is just one example of what happens to people who ride the coattails of anti-social creatures like Trump. Like Alex Jones. Like Michael Flynn, Vladimir Putin, Viktor Orbán, Ginni Thomas—you can add your own names I am sure.

As Alex Jones, Donal Trump and others are finding out—because they refuse to study the history of anti-socials that failed before them—the truth eventually comes out. There’s no way to stop it. These people become undone by the fact that they are the tiny minority in society. The vast majority of people are caring, have integrity, are honorable and will uphold an allegiance to something much bigger than their relationship to even themselves. The majority of evidence given against Trump and his attempted coup came from his “own people.” Alex Jones—already proven adept at shooting himself in the foot—has probably been shoved under the bus of justice by his own legal counsel.

It is sometimes hard to know who around us are people we should be wary of. And in upcoming and future elections—since everyone expects a river of BS to come from any candidate—how can you tell if the person is going to uphold his oath of office? Jones and Trump make this pretty easy. The guy who screams everyone except me is a criminal—now give me your money—is probably not going to be looking out for your interests.
