This inner self, develops in time, with feedback from others. As a child you are scolded for some things and praised for others this imprinting will be ingrained within you for till your last breath.
I am afraid of the distance between the individual & power. Once it comes out of the hands it becomes an instrument of destruction. But why, oh why do we never know who to blame in these cases. The countless cases, in fact most all cases today are this way. The rampant destruction. Because the individual succumbs to the loss. All things destroy. & no amount of insight can find who is at fault. The state stands over the people & takes. The people, blame the state. The people blame the other side. They blame someone other than who has in fact committed the original crime. The one crime that is the cause of all others. The individual, at a loss.
Origin of poppycock
Perhaps from an unattested American colonial Dutch use of Dutch poppekak, doll’s excrement (in contemporary Dutch, found mostly in variants of the expression zo fijn als gemalen poppekak, excessively pious (literally, as fine as powdered doll’s excrement)) : pop, doll (from Middle Dutch poppe, from Vulgar Latin *puppa, from Latin p&umacron;pa) + kak, excrement (from kakken, to defecate, from Middle Dutch kacken, from Latin cacare; see kakka- in Indo-European roots).
