One has to wonder, why are so many on the Left/Progressives/Liberals/Democrats so willing to support such overtly antisocial agendas, like Illegal Immigration, Black Lives Matters that is focused on thwarting police action, and non-heterosexual agendas that are just criminalizing appropriate free choice (that last one for me has antisocial elements)? I’ll tell you why, it at least has some elements of the Stockholm Syndrome, which one can read about below:
It sums it up well for me: “From a psychoanalytic lens, it can be argued that Stockholm syndrome arises strictly as a result of survival instincts. Strentz states, “the victim’s need to survive is stronger than his impulse to hate the person who has created the dilemma.” A positive emotional bond between captor and captive is a “defense mechanism of the ego under stress”. These sentimental feelings are not strictly for show, however. Since captives often fear that their affection will be perceived as fake, they eventually begin to believe that their positive sentiments are genuine.”
Because the scum that have found ways to infiltrate the Democrats/Left support system have been tremendously successful, and I know not everyone who is a Democrat, Progressive, Leftist, Liberal, can be so clueless and just agree to flagrantly inappropriate agendas and narratives. Unless, they have been coerced, harshly mind you, to agree or be harmed in some way. Maybe not physically, but, the threat to be made irrelevant or ostracized so viciously can be effective.
Which leads me to this link from the other day:
Please read the whole thing, but, this should give readers some perspective where the author is going with his post:
“Witness the recent brouhaha over a jointly penned op-ed by two law professors (Amy Wax of the University of Pennsylvania and Larry Alexander of the University of San Diego) who suggested, essentially, that America’s decline can be traced to a rejection of traditional values (or, in the authors’ words, “the breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture”) and advocated a return to those values.
The professors argued that America did better when we had traditional values and therefore should return to this “cultural script”: “Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.”
Significantly, the authors were careful to note that these “basic cultural precepts … could be followed by people of all backgrounds and abilities.” That is, the benefits of these values and practices transcend race.
Precisely on cue, however, leftist robot — aka University of Pennsylvania Law School dean — Ted Ruger charged to the student newspaper with an op-ed denouncing Wax’s piece as divisive and noxious and rejecting “emphatically … that a single cultural tradition is better than all others.” Charges subsequently poured in from faculty members, students and alumni accusing Wax of white supremacy, misogyny and homophobia. Some demanded that she be barred from teaching first-year law courses.”
Are you kidding me?! The projection and deflection is so rich and blatant, yet, these morons masquerading as college students are so willing to be manipulated and victimized, because the entitlement and dependency that is growing like a cancer across campuses throughout this country has made me realize college is not a benefit anymore. No, mindless cretins are what are being cultivated these days.
And one reason for this problem, Boomers who by in large are the parents of this millennial nightmare shitshow population, have created a Frankenstein situation that will not abate, at least for some period of time. And I write about this not just politically or societal perspective, but, from what I am seeing back in outpatient care. Patients are so entitled and demanding, not at all seeing flagrant pathetic viewpoints that have no basis for appropriate and realistic interventions, yet, they tell me what I have to do. They know what they want, hence they come to me?!?!
Yeah, I have to start thinking of another line of work if this shitshow of American ugliness and enabling continues unabated. Who knows, maybe find a healthy and cultivating community that can try to minimize being beholden to current American viewpoints and directions? Jim Jones I do not want, but, maybe a collective of people who say what I believe: if society wants to emulate Idiocracy, or even worse, Mad Max type apocalyptic scenarios, well, I want to be as far away as possible…
Kinda see Donald Trump eyebrows behind that mask?…
Or are they Hillary Clinton’s?!….
