DSK and Rape Scandal: Abuse of Power through Money and Position
When looking at a report on the recent events in the DSK sexual assault scandal, what struck me the most about the situation was the complete polarity in terms of the experiences/perspectives of the two people involved.
On the one hand, you have DSK, who when the hotel housekeeper came into the room, was completely naked and tried to fondle the housekeeper’s breasts and force her on the bed. Apparently, he had made verbal advances on two of the concierges at the hotel as well, massaging the hand of one of them, and being rejected twice, decided to take it one step further, by hiding in his room, naked, past the time of his checkout, for the cleaning crew. This was obviously a sex-possessed man unable to stop himself from going to the extreme of hiding like a snake under a rock waiting for the unsuspecting prey to walk by and then - STRIKE!
Even after the housekeeper escaped from his clutches, having tripped on her way to exit through the door, he rushed to her and attempted to force her to give him oral sex. How possessed must this being have been to go to such lengths?
When I look at the situation from the perspective of DSK, I see a being with constant thoughts of, “I am DSK!” “I am important” “I am powerful” - “I am special, and I get what I want.” “No body tells me, NO!”
This is not to judge, because I can see how, if one participates in such beliefs and ideas about oneself that, eventually, one is taken over by these thoughts and will simply act on them when the situation presents itself. I mean these types of events do not just happen, though, meaning that they take time to accumulate, by participating in thoughts, until that one moment comes and then everything the person had been thinking about and participating in takes over and BAM! The possessed person is no longer in control. But the thing is, the being allowed the point to accumulate to such an extent, so even though we might say that they are no longer in control, the situation is actually just a consequence of the permission given by the being participating in the thoughts and ‘backchat’ that led up to the event.
So, here we have an example of the male sex-ego, which believes that he is the king of the jungle and females are simply delicacies to be plucked and eaten at his every whim and fancy. Delusional, yes, but it is a result of media brainwashing, education, and the power we give to money, where those with money are so accustomed to simply paying others to do whatever they want, that they begin to believe that they are in fact entitled to WHATEVER THEY WANT! Even if that means raping another being who is just trying to do their job to get money to survive in this reality.
Which brings me to look at this from the perspective of the housekeeper (who is a mother, by the way.)
In one report, it was stated that while DSK was forcing himself on the woman on the bed, she kept repeating, “Please stop. I need my job. Don’t do this” (source).
All this woman could think about was losing her job! How fucked up is this situation?
She would not even be in this situation if we did not live in a system where many are, through deliberate mis-education, forced to perform jobs they would not otherwise do, and to thus place themselves in compromising positions, unable to even defend themselves due to the risk that they might lose their employment and then be unable to get money to survive.
And this is the nature of our system, where you have those with money and those without, who in essence live in two completely different mental realities. The rich, who spend their time either protecting their money or looking for ways to amuse themselves, and the poor, whose entire reality is a constant cycle of working for and worrying about money.
This situation, no this entire reality - this system - is completely unacceptable. The ONLY solution is to end this fucked system and create one that leaves no room for such unacceptable expressions such as the being who, through having more money than another, is able to do whatever they want, even if it means abusing, raping, or murdering another on the opposite end of the equation (the have not).
An Equal Money System is THE Common-Sense solution to this problem and really most problems that one can find in this reality, as most are caused due to economic inequality either directly or indirectly.

Say, “No more to abuse through power and money!”
