Harrison (that's me) replies to Henderson and Hanania
I'm so glad you exist and you write.
This is a brilliant essay, despite the unfortunate comment about the vaccine at the end. Really disappointed in that. But again, good insights and there isn’t much I disagree with. Except that it’s good to remember that there is a large degree of difference between communist regimes and wokes in degree of repression, and that’s very important. Liberalism creates spaces to escape from woke and they’ll always be there unless we go full totalitarian, which I don’t think there’s evidence for.
In isolation, I agree that propaganda itself doesn't permanently sever the reality of beauty and truth. But there's the head-meds to factor in, often prescribed from very young ages. Also the depersonalizing engines of cyberspace. As a combined assault, the damage can be extreme, and take an equally extreme effort to undo.
My main observation of the woke, is that they are basically 'resentful losers'. That is not an insult, but a description. Its like Revenge of the Nerds, writ large. All the people from high school, probably starting in the1960s, who were social outcasts (for whatever reason, unfair or not), saved up and nurtured their resentment for decades, never came to resolve it or find inner peace, and now is their time to get back at the 'beautiful people'. Stacey Abrams has admitted as much. Its all driven by resentment, and its ugly.
This brilliant excerpt from Political Ponerology answers my prayers regarding why our victimizers redirect so much of the energy they parasitically extract from us into destroying our ways and mores, as noted by Emanuel Pastreich in this 15 second clip: https://video.thesetruths.com/Sflgt9b/we-have-a-systemic-effort-by-a-tiny-handful-of-the-extremely-rich/
I pray we identify and cast off the psychopaths while we retain strength to do so.
Thanks HK. The tomatoes sum up the dysfunction of modern society & insane govturds exactly.
Thank you for this. Excellent.
This article caused something to finally click for me. Queers have a responsibility to normies that they're failing to live up to. It is as you say, normies can never become comfortable with what queers are naturally comfortable with. Since queers have the capacity to become comfortable with everything, do they not have a responsibility to normies to shield them from things they will always find repulsive and vile? I think they do. This is why pride month is such an affront against nature. Being forced to endorse things you will always regard with instinctive disgust is an affront to nature. Doing the forcing is vile and unkind. Queers often state that they are only interested in being treated with dignity and respect, but to enjoy such treatment normies will always need for you to act in a dignified manner and earn such respect. That is just how normal human beings are made.
Okay so Real Clear Politics wants to justify the military budget for Ukraine and institutional applications of DEI strains to keep a legal inversion going to (???) ...appease the hidden hand of China. RCP's Cannon cites Tucker Carlson as a type of communist symp for dissenting against sending illegal cluster munitions to Ukraine and deprecating the national stockpile for Zelensky, a guy who hates *actual* democracy. "BUT EVERYONE ELSE IS WITH US!! You're the only one complaining Carlson!!" Retail management logic at work for the merchant marines of the D.C. press. Read & interpret the action here: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2023/07/19/defense_survey_reveals_age_gender_party_divides_149502.html
I just hope and pray we can get rid of our tyrant woke dictator Justin Trudeau by voting him out at our next election! He is one of the wokest graduates from the WEF Global Young Leaders program because Canada is feeling more and more like communist China every single day now and our prime minister has publicly gushed about how he admires the way the CCP quote “gets things done ” without any of the drawbacks of democracy requiring the people’s consensus!
This was an excellent article Harrison helping explain the mindset of the crazies. I note in every instance I’ve observed every single time when push comes to shove and they just can’t rationally argue their point anymore because it doesn’t MAKE SENSE they all get very hostile and then instantly dismissive of their combatant. Not a good look when you can’t reason your way out of a paper bag..
Great essay. I found parts hard to unpack, particularly the quoted sections. Here’s my attempt to summarize. Any key omissions or errors?
Natural order losers are, in fact, put out. Woke movement represents revolt against natural order. The average lefty dislikes inequality and is consequently sympathetic. The true believers live in an abstract space and completely disregard the potential objectivity of the natural order. They believe they can simply reprogram everyone to their alternative framing. But the natural order is based on reality, and so they’ll fail — yet can wreak real havoc while given the mic.
This whole woke thing has been difficult for me to fathom. I have very little psychology training (I think luckily) and have not even studied all the materials produced by my chosen teacher (Hubbard).
So I mostly see the clear omission on both sides, which is our spiritual legacy. The fact that we are immortal spiritual beings is not that important by itself. But the information about the human condition that has resulted from just a few researchers looking in that direction has led to a completely different viewpoint on life.
This has resulted in some new (for most of us) revelations regarding psychopathic personalities and their role in disrupting our lives and society in general. This demands changes in our approach to law and crime. Hubbard also developed some other approaches which together give the subject of what he calls Ethics a whole new face.
These discoveries have also resulted in a new understanding of human psychology and what to do about human problems and achieve "mental health."
But for subjects like the battle against Woke, or any political challenge, we have mostly only the broad patterns available to us to aid us in understanding. When an individual or group is going crazy, being violent or advocating policies that are destructive, they are obviously under the influence of one or more psychopaths. The key action to defuse the situation is to separate those people from the evil influence. I have been taught to do this (at a somewhat superficial level) by telling someone who is troubled to stop reading the newspaper (or watching the news) for a couple of weeks.
We see the primary mechanism at work as "key-in" or restimulation. The psychopaths have done something to throw people's attentions onto negative past experiences that then cause them to behave irrationally. Part of our spiritual counseling involves decreasing a person's susceptibility to being restimulated. This can even include better nutrition and training in various social skills or any skill the person might need to survive better.
The agonizing job of determining the "agendas' of the criminally insane seems relatively irrelevant given this overall pattern which gives this basic strategy: 1) Cut off the psychopaths from the people they are influencing; 2) Invite those people to discover the false data they were persuaded to believe; 3) Train them in the true data and invite them to make their own decisions.
But assuming we aren't really set up to do that, the best backup plan seems to be to expose the plans of the crazies as best we can. I think it's important, though, to not label people as hopeless too readily. The really crazy are mostly hopeless but all those who are merely under their influence can often be brought back into a more rational way of life.
I just finished watching "What is a Woman?" on Twitter. The problem of woke and other movements rooted in fantasy and an inability to confront life has grown very large in society today. And it's up to a relatively small group of people to turn things around. It is a daunting task. And we are hampered by our own difficulties of thought. I only hope enough people can be strengthened sufficiently to pull this off.
Hey Henderson - did you like you own post?
Hanania - you as well?
I mean I think I see the face of the author there on the "likes"...
I liked it as well already as ought be evident, but it is unbecoming Henderson and Hanania to like you own stuff....
ok, ha, ha.....
I know when to hush....
Henderson and Hanania are you sure about this?
and forevermore if I respond to a post of yours can I refer to you as "Henderson" and/or "Hanania"....or maybe did I take it out of context?
