What is Your Explanation for Delusional Behavior Shown by Liberals?

Over the past few weeks, I wrote a six-part series of how western liberals have lost touch with physical reality to levels that would be comical if they were not also tragic. I have also written multiple posts about how current crop of western elites are also unusually out of touch with reality– and yes, there is some overlap between the two categories. To be clear, elites losing touch is nothing new and we have seen numerous examples of this phenomena over the past century, and it always ends the same way. While I have received numerous comments on the posts discussing those topics, too many of them are either reactive (to what was in the posts) or about something not related to the topic. So I have decided to devote a post specifically to get your theories, especially from lurkers, about why western elites are so comically out of touch with reality. You know my views, let me hear some more of your views.

I mean.. think about it. How did we reach a point where supposedly “educated” liberals openly say that biological sex is not real? Since when is cheering on teenage girls with obvious mental illnesses cutting off their tits and injecting themselves with testosterone a good idea?
Where do they get their bizarre and laughable ideas such as “land acknowledgements”, “safe spaces” and that whole Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DIE) ideology? How can these morons confidently believe that warfare, slavery, genocide etc were somehow absent from non-white societies? Why did these innumerate idiots start believing that “man-made global warming” now rebranded as “anthropogenic climate change” was real? How can dumbfucks who don’t understand basic concepts of electric power grids such as base load, load following, peak demand, availability factor etc opine so confidently on economics and engineering feasibility of grids powered by solar cells and windmills?

How can people who lack even a basic understanding of chemistry, mining and fabrication tell us about how easy it is to build lithium battery packs on an industrial scale? Do these losers understand the hard physical realties which led to internal combustion engines displacing all other power sources for automobiles, ships and airplanes? Do the brain-dead cultists lionizing scammers like Elon Musk understand the economics of spacecraft launch or electric cars? More importantly, how come all these supposedly “highly educated” people don’t even have an undergrad level understanding of the subjects in which they claim expertise? How can these charlatans believe that face-masks with holes which are at least 10-20 times larger than an airborne virus stop them? How can people who have credentials pretend that vaccines which do not elicit local mucosal immune responses and secreted IgA antibodies prevent infection by, or spread of, a respiratory virus? Are you seeing a pattern of though and behavior?

Let me know what you think. Comments?

    The simple answer is they know what they profess is impossible . they have to tell us something to keep us quiet as they destroy our way of life . this prevents any opposition to the top down changes. what do you think would happen if they told the truth? If klaus schwab came out and said. we own all your governments, now you will do exactly as you are told. you will be moved to work camps , fed meagar rations of grain and bug protein, and will live in on site barracks. you will never leave the premisis. we have automation and AI so we will not need all of you. we are already took your businesses, no we are taking your hmes and automobiles away from you. Resistance is futile, we control all media and messaging, and monitor you with your phones . you will be issued a social credit ID , if you do anything that displeases us , you will be electroniclly locked out of all banking, commerce, transportation, retail establishments, gas stations, your job, and your appartment. That would be met with war. so they are counting on giving us fairy tales of unlimited leisure and space travel while they go about making the changes they want. the purpose of the virus is the worldwide social credit system AKA “vax pasport”

    I think trump did an absolute number on the liberals. No joke. Everything the liberals thought the USA was… a lot of their behaviors, responses, and decrees seem to come from sheer spite of the entire population. How dare you, scorched earth approach, greta thunberg approach.
    The modern day American liberal appears to hate the populace that they represent and they are willing to adopt the minority view, project it as if it is the majority view, in order to burn it all down to the ground.
    Make the USA unrecognizable in 10 years (e.g. removed the Thomas Jefferson statue from NYC a few days ago).

    I’ve pondered that for many of my 65 years.

    I concluded about a decade ago, after about 40 years of observations and experiences, that each of us, due to the inevitable anatomical variations consequent of genetics and imperfect biological processes, is bio-chemo-electro- wired at least slightly differently than anyone else, and that we each not only perceive reality at least slightly differently, but also respond to or cope with our percetions of reality differently. The variations seem both micro and macro, not only say, a quirk specific to an individual but also traits shared by many but not all others.

    Skipping to my point…I suspect what AD describes as delusional behavior involves one of those shared variations. Some people seem wired to perceive reality as a “tabula rasa”, or they seem to be incapable of coping with the ramifications of the perception that, although “nurture” is important in forming each individual, it’s nevertheless secondary to “nature”.

    For them, individuals, relationships, families, communities, and societies are primarily the product of external programming, not of intrinsic/instinctive motivations. Environment is what rules in their perceptions, not genetics. “Choice” involves an unlimited “you have unlimited potential, and you can be whatever you want to be!” rather than the limited range of “you can try to achieve your potential, and you might be whatever you’re able to be”.

    In their variation of mind wiring, for an example, gender differences are primarily if not exclusively a matter of social programming and individual choice.

    In their minds, humans metaphorically CAN fly unassisted like Superman, because, to say or admit humans cannot contradicts their perception.

    And/or terrifies them: “If it’s not primarily choice and social programming, then, maybe humans can’t substantially improve nor change…and maybe people can’t do more or better than try to, at least somewhat, suppress what they intrinsically are…and then maybe I can’t either!!” That likely leaves some of them in existential hopelessness.

    So, I suspect that “delusional behavior” roots in what’s ultimately a response to perception.

    • November 28, 2021 at 7:56 am

      …by th’ way…although my conclusion means I don’t ultimately blame them for being delusional – – to me, they are simply subjects of the wiring they inherited, not chose – – I don’t sweetly accept much less condone their behavior.

      I don’t blame rabid dogs for contracting rabies, but I don’t want them on my property, behaving irrationally and dangerously.

    I determined almost 20 years ago that most shitlibs really deserve a gun shot blast to the face. They are simply too stupid to live and there is no reasoning with them. They are deceitful, liars, and dishonest.

    It’s a shame we can’t round up these people in corporate America and public and private universities that voted for Obama, Clintons, and this douche and send them to a concentration camp to be exterminated. They need to be physically removed from society. Sadly, there are plenty of tradespeople with the same dumbass thinking, so they really need to go to a camp as well. Maybe we could anoint Obummer their honorary ruler and make white shitlib males blow off trannies.

    I wonder academia would think of this:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-10132549/Lesbian-claims-shes-seen-people-identify-trans-women-bully-young-girls-relationship.html#

    “In the piece, Ms Lowbridge attempted to discover how ‘widespread’ the issue was across the country and said several people had contacted her about the pressures to ‘accept the idea that a penis can be a female sex organ’.”

    Also remember that shitlibs like MikeCA, by voting Democrat, also supports pedophilia, bestiality, and other such disgusting sex practices. Where is MikeCA by the way?

    I know shitlibs will be angry at this, but the following is some good news:

      These type of shitLib quandaries as so delicious to behold.
      –Infighting about whether men disguised as untransformed transwomen accusing lesbians about being bigoted for not wanting to sleep with them: Now that’s the ultimate shitLib test!
      –Male prisoners claiming trans status being shipped to female prisons where they rape other inmates.
      –Males transforming into lesbian females because they want to sleep with women!
      –Liberals who don’t know whether respect for native Indian culture means setting aside their objections to patriarchal definitions of who is a member of the tribe, or whether feminist principles trumps everything.
      Thank the Lord there are so many such knot-tying existential dilemmas.

        I almost spit my coffee that morning reading that stupidity about a ‘penis as a female sexual organ.’ I can’t believe there people out there that actually think this crap, but here we are. But yes, I enjoy seeing them beat up on each other.

        I’m still waiting for straight shitlib males to start blowing off trannies in solidarity and to prove they are not transphobic.

      • November 29, 2021 at 3:31 pm

        “…there are so many such knot-tying existential dilemmas.”

        Heheh…and, but thank the cosmos for blessed Blank Slateism, since as we all know deep, deep, deeeep down in our hearts, once they finally-and-forever eradicate that Root-of-All-Evils Patriarchy and establish that Perfect Social Programming, all such dilemmas shall easily and happily-ever-after resolve!

    The WEIRD (as in ‘Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic’) are gonna weird and, by that, I mean that they are going to empathize, identify and assume a shared moral value system with other human beings who are not-Western, not-Educated, not-Industrialized, not-Rich and not-Democratic.

    It is this empathy-based delusion that first separates the WEIRD from reality until they (the WEIRD) conclude that everyone else in the world must be as concerned with tiktok, cow farts, gluten, feminism, & transgender pronouns as they are, even as they take the most basic human needs (food, fuel, shelter) for granted that would have otherwise provided an actual foundation for empathy.

    The WEIRD are then left in an untenable situation when they notice that everyone else in the world does not respond to reality as the WEIRD would and, since they (the WEIRD) are unable to question their own initial empathy-based delusion, they invariably conclude that the fault lies with every other non-WEIRD person in the world who is somehow broken, abnormal or delusional.

    Because, as far as the WEIRD are concerned, they (the WEIRD) are entirely normal — the ideal normal, they believe — even though they represent less than 12% of the worldwide human population.

    Which means that you, me & the other 88% of humanity are the crazy ones.

    From Scientific American articke about exercise and aging:

    People with ovaries undergo a cessation of reproductive capacity, whereas people who make sperm can do so for a lifetime. How does this hypothesis apply to both?

    [My comment] Our ignorant ancestors used to call these people women and men, respectively, until we discovered that some women lack ovaries and produce sperm, while some men have ovaries and cannot produce sperm.

    Calhoun Mouse Utopia writ large , all that remains for the elite is status competition, virtue signalling and the thrill of transgression along with an existential cowardice.

    Woke provides that all in a single neat package.

    It’s very simple. Our leaders are not tested, selected, or rewarded based on understanding of and compliance with reality. They are tested, selected, and rewarded based on their understanding of and compliance with ever-changing prog dogma. And they’re very, very skilled at this.

    Really, what is “reality,” anyway? If I get real money that I can spend on real goods and real respect from real people for a high-ranking job that I actually hold by believing and repeating a few absurdities about trannies and masks, while you suffer real material punishments for refusing to go along but compensate yourself with impotent online whining and thoughts in your own head about how you’re “right,” then who is really dealing with “reality,” here?

    Now, is the system as a whole heading for the rocks with no means to correct itself? Probably. But on an individual level, the smart move is to genuinely believe the Party Line with all your heart. Because it gets you paid.

    • November 29, 2021 at 7:19 am

      ….”But on an individual level, the smart move is to genuinely believe the Party Line with all your heart. Because it gets you paid.”

      BINGO!

      In my own 65 years of experience, and in reading history, that’s my observation. I dislike the reality, but it is the reality for most people in order to have the possibility of financial/societal success.

      As an unconventionally-wired individual, I might feel psychologically satisfied only if I rant and rail against the “unfairness” and “irrationailty”, but even a lifetime of accurately rebuking the social norm won’t keep me out of poverty when I gasp my dying breath.

    Modern society has protected the stupid, lazy, and physically and mentally deformed from the consequences of their limitations. Since evolution no longer weeds out the defective amongst us, the Flynn effect has reversed and society is getting dumber. Since the weak and stupid always realize on the most basic level that their prosperity and survival relies on numbers they default to increasing power to governments, unions, courts, tribunals etc. They also can’t compete in the world of ideas or productivity so status and signalling is all they have. Ergo >35 years of gay rights, doomsday cults (Y2K, Global cooling, Global Warming, Saturated Fat is bad, blah, blah, blah), Twitter, FB, TikTok and $400 Air Jordans.

    Nothing mentioned about the border crises or immigration. That is a huge issue that concerns voters. Biden needs to fire Mayorkas from DHS. Immigration restriction is a huge concern for voters.

      It’s (((Mayorkas))). I’m a couple hours from the southern and western Texas borders. The federal government refuses to do its job. This is by design. The shitlibs don’t care about America and most Republicans are doing nothing either.

    I’ll provide a very simple explanation: Educational/credentialing systems built upon “getting a job in your field” broke down and created a bunch of dumbasses who are “highly educated” but actually have no real world experience. Obviously all “highly educated” “center-left” people in grifter fields like law or finance know absolutely dick about the realities of technology or economics. Even for those in technical fields, the financialism of the economy means that right after college they went into some field where they needed to make a “personal brand” and switch into fields far removed from engineering and science realities like “software engineering” because that’s the only way to make money. So you have people with undergrad degrees but unable to apply any of that knowledge to the real world because most of their adult life has been filled with learning bullshit charades and test taking skills so that they can keep their fake white collar job.
