I suspect that at the core of liberal “thinking” is the same kind of pathology that characterizes other mental disorders, i.e., a glitch in the brain that produces “feelings” and behavior over which liberals have no control. FSM
The above photo by The Peoples Cube is funny, yet it is also intuitively accurate. Which brings me to my nic, which only a few of you may have ever heard my explanation for choosing it.
Over the years, having moved across the political spectrum as I entered and exited different phases of my life, many things came into focus. That liberalism was a phase of socio-political development that many got stuck in and couldn’t conceive of or grasp any competing concepts puzzled me, as well as made me very angry at times, as the behavior of liberals and their childishness was most evident when events went against their world view and they would behave in ways that reminded me of a petulant child. That is when I determined that, like a petulant child, liberals needed to be told NO when serious matters were under discussion and they were pushing for their view to be dominant. So, I have since then and encourage you now, to tell a liberal or all liberals NO when important matters concerning the survival of our nation and human kind in general are to be effected by some of the policy changes they support.
That is my explanation and have watched with much amusement how many liberals react, usually the most lefturd of the bunch, when I have told them NO your idea/s are destructive and then explain why. I generally get the reaction of a breath-holding, foot-stomping child or pre-teen. At other times, some even take umbrage at the mere presence of my ‘nic.’
With that info about my choice of nic’s out of the way, I will refer you to a most excellent article I found the other day, that adds credence and validity to what I knew only qualitatively and intuitively. The Pathology of Liberalism by Joan Swirsky, was published in Family Security Matters a few days ago and I have been perusing it and waiting for the opportunity when I could sit down and write this post. The article is excellent as an aid in understanding how the liberal pathology can be dealt with on a daily basis and can help explain your frustration in trying to have a reasonable conversation with them and why there is nothing you or I can do about their condition. They have to proceed to another level of development on their own, as I, and many of you here, already have done over the years.
Here is a glimpse at the article, describing liberals as children:
Liberals, like children, live in a world of utopian dreaminess, clinging to a narrow, circumscribed reality and believing that if everyone would just be nice to each other – let’s talk, let’s chat – all the noisy death threats and pesky suicide bombings would go away, and all those grumpy grownups in the current administration would see the light.
And so they do what children do when they’re mad at grownups. They call names.
Children take things personally. “My father is bigger (stronger, smarter) than your father” is just about intolerable to the average child. “Is not!” “Is too!” is an exchange that inevitably results in either tears or fists. In 2000, when George W. Bush ascended to the presidency, the initial despair of liberals quickly morphed into childlike, irrational anger, which has obsessed them for the past six years
Liberals entertain the conceit that they are quite evolved and superior, both morally and intellectually. In their childlike minds, they are “good” and the people who set limits, demand accountability, expect empirical results, fight their enemies and also make judgments about what is good and bad and right and wrong are “bad.”
In addition, liberals are intellectually lazy. Like the children they are, their feelings supersede their self-described much-vaunted intellects, rendering them biologically incapable of objective thought or reasoned debate. So controlled are they by the emotional centers of their brains that when President Bush says we must defend our country with every means possible – diplomatic, strategic, and military – liberals figuratively say, or rather screech, “I don’t like those rules, Dad!” and then they have pathological temper tantrums.
As we so often see on posts like this, read the whole thing! It is not a short article, but is well worth your time, I assure you.
As for the blue-faced, screaming and foot-stomping liberal child you may incite by saying NO, the sooner they learn the lesson that their behavior is maladaptive, the better.
Oh, be sure to say no2liberals often and please don’t worry, you can’t possibly wear it out.
