I rewatched a video interview James Corbett did with Dr. Tjeerd Andringa about a year and a half ago about kakistocracy where Dr. Andrings brings in some very interesting insights such as how these psychopaths are "created." In the Dr.'s purview, kakistocrats consist of what he describes as "high-functioning psychopaths... very few of whom are born with pedophilic tendencies or any other predilections, but are created, generally through trauma from early on in their own youths. I suggest watching the first 5 1/2 minutes at least where this is explained...
Given the psychopathic impulses drawing people to positions of power, a kakistocracy seems almost inevitable regardless of what system of government is in place... and pedophilia as a means of both a system of control and a "recruiting mechanism" for the power elites (or aristocracy) seems almost inevitable in the halls of power as well. Pedophilia is the the "lubricant" that keeps the machinery of the kakistocracy running smoothly. It not only keeps the elites in line, but makes the system self-sustaining as well. Much of this is explainable simply by observing how institutions are affected by human nature itself.
When Machiavelli wrote The Prince, he was not advocating, or designing a particular system of government; but recognizing certain aspects of human nature and how they fit in with any given power structure. To begin with, the "common man":
And for the Prince...
It is for the survival of the institutions of government, not the common man, that those in power must be the most dangerous elements of society. Factoring in Lord Acton's caveat that: "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely," a high-functioning psychopath is drawn to power like the proverbial moth is drawn by a flame. Machiavelli observed that human beings are only "good" when they are forced to be so by some necessity.
Society can be broken down into two categories: elites- those who seek power and control of institutions and people, and non-elites- everyone else. The elites, be they cultural, political, economic, or any other type I failed to mention see themselves as a sort of aristocracy imbued with a sense of entitlement. This and a profound lack of the empathy that normal people have is what enables them to indulge in behavior that the rest of us find unthinkable. Dr. Andringa describes these people as "respectable appearing, super high-functioning and completely ruthless psychopaths." This probable comprises less than 1% of the overall population.
Enter child abuse again. If you organize events for the ambitious and capable in which they can progressively show that, notwithstanding their veneer of respectability, they are actually completely ruthless, you have the ideal recruiting grounds for the kakistocracy. Of course blackmail plays a role, but the suitable candidates gladly let themselves to become blackmailable because this gives them access to the inner sanctum of the kakistocracy. They prove themselves worthy members and loyal (due to their blackmailability) and in return they receive access to power in a way they could never dream of on their own. After awhile they become fully accepted in a level that suits their capabilities...
The sexual abuse of children is more than just a sexual predilection, it is a means to garnering and maintaining power- the more perverse the acts, the higher one rises in the kakistocracy. Looking at Pizzagate/Pedogate through this lens explains why it is so prevalent in loci of power such as Washington. It is almost certain that wherever there is power, pedophilia is likely there as well. This seems true of virtually every sort of institution of power, be it in politics, religion, or corporatism (corporations). If you wish to climb the ladder to power, you must play the game.
