Psychopathology at the top

A couple of good essays on bad behavior, bad attitudes and totalitarianism.

First an essay on what the author calls the dark triad, narcissism, Machiavellianism, and sociopathic behavior (he calls it psychopathology) in the most remarkably malignant president in this nation’s history.

Remember, the key to understanding sociopaths and personality disorders is their lack of conscience and great sense of self importance.

Then an essay on The Nature of Socialism True Believers, their intolerant and totalitarianism nature.

But it also hints at the problem of True Believer hard headedness.

  1. As bad as the reality of the Obamesiah is, I worry much more about those who groomed him and put him in that office. We now see the Ruling Class Monsters doing their utmost to foist an oligarchy on the USA. If you have any doubts about it, just consider what happened in the last federal election when the awful democRATs were rejected and heroic RepublicRATs put in their place! Whats that you say? The RepublicRATs just continued the very same policies and direction of ever-increasing federal POWER? How can this be?

    They will only stop when they are stopped. Period.

  2. “A couple of good essays on bad behavior, bad attitudes and totalitarianism.”

    Many of Orwell’s essays dealt with totalitarian attitudes.

    “Part IV of GULLIVER’S TRAVELS is a picture of an anarchistic Society, not governed by law in the ordinary sense, but by the dictates of “Reason”, which are voluntarily accepted by everyone.”

    “This illustrates very well the totalitarian tendency which is explicit in the anarchist or pacifist vision of Society. In a Society in which there is no law, and in theory no compulsion, the only arbiter of behaviour is public opinion. But public opinion, because of the tremendous urge to conformity in gregarious animals, is less tolerant than any system of law. When human beings are governed by “thou shalt not”, the individual can practise a certain amount of eccentricity: when they are supposedly governed by “love” or “reason”, he is under continuous pressure to make him behave and think in exactly the same way as everyone else … There was no room for disagreement among them, because the truth is always either self-evident, or else it is undiscoverable and unimportant.

    “’Reason’, among the Houyhnhnms, he says, “is not a Point Problematical, as with us, where men can argue with Plausibility on both Sides of a Question; but strikes you with immediate Conviction; as it must needs do, where it is not mingled, obscured, or discoloured by Passion and Interest.” In other words, we know everything already, so why should dissident opinions be tolerated?”
