Women in Power: Aristocratic Female Serial Killers

The desire to wield power over others is as old as humanity. “Empowerment” was, in the past, usually identified with sociopathic impulses. This was preceding the top-down social engineering protocols that have been promoted by the government/corporate partnership, that has during the second half of the 20th century, taken over all aspects of western society.

Children have been trained to perform for rewards – a method designed by behaviorist psychologists who believe than people are nothing but animals that can be trained to behave in any manner the trainers wish. Moral relativism has been inculcated into children by the rule-makers as a replacement for the age-old imperative of self-mastery. This makes it easier for the “empowered ones” to control the docile and impulsive public.

Here are some stories of “empowerment” that might possibility challenge portions of politically correct dogma we have been inundated with our entire lives.

The subject of gynarchy and specious feminist claims of female rulers’ superior sense of justice is conveniently outlined in the excellent overview of the subject: “Fingering the Gynarchy” (by Tawil, A Voice for Men, Sep. 1, 2013).

This collection was originally designed to include aristocrats exclusively. The original title is retained, but some high-ranking elected officials and totalitarian bureaucrats, most of whom have been involved in genocide, have been added.
