In this session we started Chapter 5, covering the first sections introducing the concept of pathocracy. Some specific topics included:
how the main phases of the development of pathocracy are colored by different personality disorders
how schizoids start the cycle, penning manifestos and philosophies
how characteropaths weaponize the ideologies for mass consumption and revolutionary ends
how psychopaths then infiltrate the movement, further distorting the ideology into a dual-layered, psychopathic caricature
the roles of men and women during different phases, and the sexual demographics of personality disorders
why pathocracies shouldn’t be called by their ideologies, which are mostly meaningless tools for a psychopathic agenda that doesn’t take the ideology seriously
Lobaczewski’s politics as a mix of liberal and conservative elements, influenced by Catholic social teaching
For the next session, read the next sections of Chapter 5 (stopping at the beginning of “Imposed Pathocracies”). For readers with the print copy, this will be pages 196-218.
The next session is scheduled for Sunday, February 11. Take the poll below to let me know which of the two times available works for you.
