Potential Trouble Source (PTS): a person who is in some way connected to and being adversely affected by a suppressive person or suppression. Such a person is called a potential trouble source because he can be a lot of trouble to himself and to others and needs to be helped.
The PTS is somebody connected with a Suppressive Person who is invalidating him, his beingness, his life. The person is a Potential Trouble Source because he is connected to the Suppressive Person.
Potential Trouble Source means the person is going to go up and fall down. And he is a trouble source because he is going to get upset and because he is going to make trouble. And he really does make trouble. That's very carefully named.
Suppressive Person (SP): a person who possesses a distinct set of characteristics and mental attitudes that cause him to suppress other people in his vicinity. This is the person whose behavior is calculated to be disastrous. Also called antisocial personality.
More extensively said, it is a person who suppresses other people in his vicinity. A Suppressive Person will goof up or vilify any effort to help anybody and particularly knife with violence anything calculated to make human beings more powerful or more intelligent.
The whole rationale of the Suppressive Person (SP) is built on the belief that if anyone got better, the SP would be for it as the others could overcome him then.
