FT109: “Liberals attack marriage and motherhood because their narcissism prevents them from doing either well.” -Old Pithy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - March 16th, 2012

Fundamental Truth

The Institution of Marriage is the Original Synergy where the Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts

A bird’s life is not an easy one.  They have to suffer through horrible storms.  Struggle to find food during the winter.  Stay on guard at all times lest some cat eats them.  They have to build a nest every spring to lay their eggs in.  And raise their babies.  Find food for them.  Protect them.  Then teach them how to be a bird.  And kick them out of the nest so they learn how to use their wings.  As they fly off into the cruel world to start their own short and hard lives.  Leaving the mothers to do it all over again next year.

It’s not quite the same for humans.  They don’t grow up so fast.  And require a whole lot more nurturing.  For the human baby is about the most helpless of all babies in the animal kingdom.  Requiring far more care and teaching before they can go off on their own.  And live their own lives.  Where the bird takes a few months it takes the human about 18 years.  So raising children is a bit different.  And a bit more involved.  Requiring a lot more effort and work on the part of the parents.

Enter the institution of marriage.  The most basic division of labor.  A man and a woman join in marriage to raise children.  The original synergy.  Where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  From the most basic biological level.  (The woman has eggs but cannot create life without fertilization.  A man has fertilization but cannot create life with eggs.)  To financial.  (A woman cannot work when bringing new life into the world.  So the father works to pay the bills and provide a home for the new life.)  To parenting.  (Men and women are different and bring different skills to parenting.  This diversity makes children better adapted to enter the world.)

Liberals are more likely to abort their Babies and Divorce as they are too Competitive and Aggressive to arrest their Alpha Desires

Raising children isn’t easy.  Both mother and father have to make great sacrifices in their personal lives for their children.  And to support each other.  Which means parents have to love their children and each other more than they love themselves.  Which is why narcissists make poor spouses.  And poor parents.  Because they can’t sacrifice enough of their self-love to be a good spouse.  Or a good parent.

Liberals are narcissists.  They believe in big government.  As long as they run it.  Because they think they are smarter than everyone else.  And should tell everyone else how to live their lives.  Atheists tend to be liberals.  (Not all for the followers of Ayn Rand are typically atheists, too.)  Because they refuse to live in a world where there is a higher power than theirs.  Celebrities tend to be liberals because they yearn for the fawning adulation of their fans.  College professors tend to be liberals because they enjoy the fawning veneration of their students.  Artists tend to be liberals for the fawning admiration of their fans.  Women advancing in the corporate or political world tend to be liberals because they love to bask in the self-satisfaction of making it ‘in a man’s world’.  And the accolades that go with it.  Further stroking their already huge egos.  You see, everything a liberal does is to feed their narcissism.  Everything is about them.  And getting married or having kids isn’t.  Which is why they can pursue excellence in all other endeavors but these.

Liberals are alpha males.  In a non-physical, narcissistic way.  Even the women.  Where the liberal feminist wants to be everything a man can be.  Everything is a competition.  To prove that they are better than everyone else.  And to show everyone that they’ve made it.  Especially to those who have bested them earlier in their lives.  From the bullies in school.  To the boys and girls who wouldn’t date them.  To the talented geeks that went on to be entrepreneurial geniuses.  And billionaires.  To the men who have always had the best careers.  And the best stuff.  But now it’s payback time.  Where the expression ‘the best revenge is living well’ really means something.  Which explains why liberals are more likely to abort their babies.  And have their marriages end in divorce.  They are just too competitive and too aggressive to arrest their alpha desires.  To knock that chip off of their shoulders.  To let go of their anger.  Their ambition.  Too consumed with their own existence to share their only love (self-love) with a spouse.  Or a child.  In their all out pursuit of liberal happiness.  Affirmation.  That they do matter.  That they have a purpose.  That they are special.

Liberals think Happily Married Women raising Families are just too Stupid to Know that they should be as Miserable as they Are

Liberals want to get married.  And have children.  But on their terms.  Where it doesn’t interfere with their lives.  Or change them.  Or inconvenience them.  They enter into these arrangements with the idea that they will remain the center of the universe. 

Celebrities are always getting married.  And having children.  Which proves that they like the institution of marriage.  And children.  But their marriages often end in divorce.  And their subsequent custody battles are often ugly.  And aired in public.  Which is why liberals condemn the stay-at-home mother.  Who gives up on being everything she could be.  To be the only thing that liberals can’t be.  Happily married and raising a family. 

And that’s what really bugs them.  They’re happy.  To a liberal this is just not fair.  They’re the ones who should be happy.  Because they matter.  They’re special.  They have the nicer stuff.  And what really gets in their craw is that these happily married women raising families are just too stupid to know that they should be as miserable as they are.

LESSONS LEARNED #47: “Liberals crave attention because that’s what narcissists do.” -Old Pithy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - January 6th, 2011

Walter Cronkite Turns the Tet Offensive Victory into Defeat

Walter Cronkite didn’t have a clue about combat in Vietnam.  The Tet Offensive was a disaster for the Viet Cong.  But you wouldn’t know that listening to Cronkite.  The war was now unwinnable.  And he said this after the biggest military defeat the North suffered.  (The north were the bad guys).

The plan was to cause a general uprising throughout South Vietnam to overthrow the South Vietnamese government everywhere.  It failed.  We killed senior and experienced soldiers in the Viet Cong wholesale.  And the Viet Cong ceased to exist as an effective army.  From Tet forward they would only use hit and run ambush attacks.  A Fabian strategy.  Like Washington did during the American Revolution.  When he, too, was up against a military superpower.

The key to using the strategy of Roman general Quintus Fabius Maximus is simple.  But costly.  You got to be willing to endure a lot of hardship for a long time.  This means a lot of your soldiers will die.  And your people will suffer for the want of the basic necessities of life.  It’s a war of attrition.  You just have to be willing to sacrifice a whole lot.  By extending the war indefinitely, you make the war more costly than your enemy is willing to endure.  When they reach the breaking point, they quit.  And you win.  It’s an effective strategy.  But, like I said, costly.  They tend to be long wars.  The American Revolution lasted 8 years.  Vietnam lasted some 10 years (America’s combat operations).

Imagine a World where there are no Possessions

There was division in the North Vietnamese government.  There was Soviet influence.  Chinese influence.  And Vietnamese resentment of outside influence.  First it was the Japanese.  Then the French.  Then the Americans.  And now the Soviets and Chinese.  Luckily for us, big combat won out as a strategy.  Hence the Tet Offensive.  And utter failure.  When some were ready to sue for peace, Walter Cronkite threw them a lifeline.

The liberal left holds up this period of history as a time when they changed the world.  When young people participated in the national debate.  Well, they did.  And really [deleted expletive] things up.  These young heard a few things from some radical college professors and thought they knew everything.  But they were still a bunch of ignorant hippies.  Ignorant hippies, that is, with Walter Cronkite now on their side.  The counterculture was in full swing.  These kids attacked everything American.  Supported communist leaders (Che Guevara, Mao Tse-tung, Fidel Castro, etc.) and tried to start a communist revolution in America.  Really.  Imagine a world where there are no possessions.  Power to the people.  That was John Lennon pining for a communist utopia.  Our enemies couldn’t ask for anything more.  Cronkite and these kids emasculated America.  And we would pay dearly for it in blood and treasure.

These liberals got the attention they craved.  And they were so sure they were right.  About everything.  Infallible.  And wanted to tell others what to do.  Well, these hippies did.  They went on to become university professors.  And they’re now teaching our kids.  Vietnam was the turning point.  It’s when the world lost respect for America.  Not for the reason the Left would have you believe, though.  They lost respect for us because it was the first time we tucked up our skirt and ran away from a fight.  Vietnam would forever be the war we gave up on.  Poor JFK.  The hero of PT-109.  His war in Vietnam would not go into the win column.  Because of a bunch of stupid, long-haired, stoned hippies.  He must be spinning in his grave.

Jimmy Carter’s Détente Almost Assured Nuclear Destruction

The Seventies were a bleak decade.  Because these hippies came of age.  Still full of themselves.  Believing they were making the world a better place.  But they were only making it more dangerous.

After our humiliation in Vietnam our enemies saw us as a paper tiger.  Who didn’t have the nerve to stay in the fight.  Or the will to get into a fight.  The world never came closer to ending when the liberals were in power during the Seventies.  The Soviet Union was getting away with murder.  Jimmy Carter was attacking our allies in Central America.  While kissing Soviet and Chinese ass.  He never attacked their human rights violations.  And no one committed more human rights violations.  But he attacked our allies.  Who committed a negligible amount of violations compared to the two big communist powers.

Jimmy Carter’s détente was a joke.  The Soviets had no respect for him.  To them Carter was a strategic opening.  They concluded that Carter wouldn’t launch his nuclear missiles until after the Soviet missiles hit their U.S. targets.  Reagan they feared.  They had no illusions that he would launch his missiles as soon as we detected Soviet missiles inbound to the U.S.  But not Carter.  This changed nuclear doctrine for the Soviets.  They went from Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) to a first-strike doctrine.  Because they were sure they could beat Carter in a nuclear war.  Never before has the world come closer to nuclear annihilation.  And we didn’t even know it at the time.

The Social Sciences were Made for and by Hippies

What the counterculture hippy left did during the Vietnam War extended the war, damaged the prestige of America and almost gave us nuclear annihilation.  And if that wasn’t bad enough (and don’t you think it should be?) they did even more damage domestically.  Successfully humiliating us on the national stage only empowered them.  The hippies of the Sixties became college professors, journalists, movie stars, television stars and politicians in the Seventies.  Now think about this.  What did the hippies do in the Sixties?  Think Woodstock.  Sex, drugs and rock and roll.  These hippies were stoned all of the time while they were in college.  (If you don’t believe me Google Timothy Leary, Haight-Ashbury, flower children, psychedelic rock, counter culture, or any other Sixties icons.)

And these hippies just weren’t smoking pot.  They were doing some hardcore drugs.  The big one was LSD.  A hallucinogen.  It’d really [deleted expletive] you up.  So you know these hippies weren’t studying to be brain surgeons or rocket scientists.  No, those degrees required advanced math.  And studying.  Which they couldn’t do when they were [deleted expletive] up all of the time.  So they took some of those easier degrees.  One of those social sciences.  Like black studies.  Or women’s studies.  Or Native American studies.  Or communications.  Where all you had to do was bitch about white men on your exams and they’d graduate your ass.  Of course, there wasn’t much you could do with these degrees.  Except teach at a college.  And that’s what a lot of these hippies did.  And destroyed generations of kids.

Well, after being on top of the world during the Sixties a little reality settled in during the Seventies.  Some realized they were about as useful as a paperweight.  And they couldn’t stand that.  They believed they were smarter than everyone in their youth.  Now they were realizing they were dumb as posts.  And it’s hard to feel superior to others when you’re dumb as a post.  So you do something about that.  You become active.  In something.  You show off that brain.  That college degree.  You support a cause.  Or go into politics.

Journalists and Celebrities Just want to be Loved

That’s the path a lot of liberals took.  But not all.  Some are too young to have lived through the Sixties.  But their college professors no doubt did.  So they keep the spirit of the Sixties alive.  Though a little lighter on the drugs these days.  Some don’t need mind altering drugs to get high.  Love of self is enough for some.  Which is the drug of choice for a narcissist.  Journalists and politicians in particular love this drug.

Dan Rather appeared to have a personal vendetta against George W. Bush.  He referenced documents on air critical of Bush’s Air Force service before the presidential election.  He said on air that experts at CBS authenticated the documents.  Well, they didn’t.  Worse, they were forgeries.  Rather, who appeared to be envious of Cronkite’s fame, wanted a little fame for himself.  He wanted that big story.  To influence a presidential election.  Instead, he ended his journalism career.

Celebrities are narcissists.  They have great big egos.  And a lot of fame.  But it’s an empty fame.  Most make a living by pretending to be other people.  Or they can sing.  Or look good while just standing still.  It’s nice but eventually they want more.  To be more than a pretty face.  A pretty voice.  A good pretender.  So they flex their minds to show off their all around superiority.  Ted Danson warned us that the oceans would be ‘dead’ in 10 years…20 years ago.  Cher warned that George W. Bush would force all the gays and lesbians into New Jersey should we elect him.  Cameron Diaz said Bush would legalize rape.  (Last I checked he didn’t do either.)  Sean Penn praises Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez while their people suffer some of the worst human rights violations.  Does he do this because he favors human rights violations?  Or is he so smart that he can’t believe he’s ever wrong?  (For the record, Penn doesn’t choose to live in Cuba or Venezuela.  So it would appear that although he speaks out in favor of Marxism over capitalism, he prefers the comforts of capitalism for himself.  So I think it’s fair to conclude that he is at least a hypocrite.)

Elite Intellectuals with an 8th Grade Education

The Vietnam War to liberals was like Christ’s crucifixion to Christians.  It defined them.  Made them.  It was the first inklings of their powers.  And they liked that power. 

They prolonged the war and killed hundreds of thousands more (Americans, Vietnamese, Laotians, Cambodians, etc.).  They had something to protest for almost a decade.  This empowered them and made them feel invincible.  The world was theirs.  They could do anything.  And some did.  Some even became terrorists (e.g., the Weather Underground). 

They were elite intellectuals.  Elite intellectuals with maybe an 8th grade education.  They knew nothing.  But believed they knew everything.  They destroyed a decade.  While their heads were filled with dreams of sugar plum fairies and illusions of grandeur.  Virtually unemployable in the real world, they took these feelings of superiority to our colleges, Hollywood, newspapers and television networks.  Where they lived insulated from the real world.  And continued their destruction.  Craving attention.  Constantly shouting ‘look at me’.  Never caring about the consequences of their actions.

Liberals are not inherently evil.  The destruction they cause is not on purpose.  They’re just a bunch of idiots.  They typically lived isolated from the real world.  In positions that can influence the masses.  And they tend to be charismatic.  Of course, there are exceptions to this rule.  Such as Al Gore.  Who you would find in the dictionary if you looked up ‘not charismatic’.  But he craves that attention more than most.  And is one of the biggest idiots out there.  He still believes in global warming even though those emails leaked from the University of East Anglia showed they were manipulating the global warming data. 

But Al Gore is not an idiot.  Idiots don’t make enough money to buy mansions on the ocean.  But he did.  While warning people about the danger of global warming.  And rising sea levels.  That will flood our seashores.  Like the seashore he just moved to.  You see, even he doesn’t really believe in global warming.  So he’s not an idiot.  He’s just a charlatan.  Praying on the people’s gullibility to make himself a millionaire.  He may not know anything about science, but he’s highly skilled in the arts of fleecing.  While making himself feel important.  Giving himself value (in his own mind).  Stroking that ego while he spends his days just dicking around in his big, empty mansion.  And this is liberalism at its best.  Empty shells of people.  Trying to feel good about themselves.  By pretending to do good for others.

FUNDAMENTAL TRUTH #47: “Liberals crave attention because that’s what narcissists do.” -Old Pithy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - January 4th, 2011

People Need to Feel that they have Value

I’m not one to quote Stephen King.  Well, not often.  I’m not a big fan of his books.  He creates good characters.  But sucks at plot.  Even he admits this.  (Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m sure I read something he wrote admitting this).  But his books are easy to read.  Entertaining.  Even if he does take a couple of potshots at capitalism in each book.  Yeah, he’s a regular bleeding heart.  What did you expect?  College student.  Teacher.  Then filthy rich novelist.   He earned it.  But his wealth allows him to escape the real world.

Anyway, I had a friend that read every novel he could get his hand on.  A mentor, really.  He’d knock out one or more a week.  He read all the Stephen King novels.  King’s not his favorite author, but he really enjoyed all the books in Magnus Opus.  The Dark Tower series.  When he finished one book, he’d hand it off to me.  I’d read it, offering my commentary along the war.  Noting the anti-capitalist parts.  I then passed the book off to another friend.  Then we’d discuss over lunch.  I enjoyed that time.  And The Dark Tower.  Except the silly, anti-capitalist parts.

Like I said, I’m not one to quote Stephen King, but he did say something very profound in one of The Dark Tower books.  One of the characters was basically a loser in life.  Whatever he tried he failed at.  But it turned out that he had one gift.  Something few people could do.  Unfortunately, that skill would bring about the total destruction of the world.  But it was the only thing he was good at.  So he did it.  The protagonist asked why.  Because he would die, too, along with everyone else.  And he said something like, “People need to feel that they have value.  To feel useful.”

How true.

If we Have no Value, All we do is Dick Around

Sparks has a song called Dick Around.  It’s about a guy that climbs the corporate ladder to great success.  He’s at the top of his game.  Then his girl dumps him.  And it devastates him.  He loses his motivation and resigns his big corporate job.  Without the girl he sees no point.  (Yeah, guys can be like that).  And he struggles to understand why she left him.

Why the hell, why the hell, why the hell, why the hell?
Why the hell did she desert you when you were so influential?
Why the hell, why the hell, why the hell, why the hell?
Why did she desert you when you told her she was so essential?

And he goes downhill from there.  After losing his girl he can’t continue on in his job.  And without the job he loses all feelings of self-worth.

Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me,
Knowing that from now on what you do is strictly non-essential
Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me,
Knowing that from now on no one wonders if you’ve got potential

So he putters around in the garden.  And just kills time.

But all I do now, is dick around
All I do now, is dick around
Dick around

People need to feel that they have value.  To feel useful.  Like Stephen King wrote about.  And once you feel you don’t have value, you wander aimlessly through life.  And dick around.  Anyone going through a prolonged period of unemployment no doubt can relate to this.

Oh, what the hell.  Here’s a video of the song.

Liberals have Ability Envy

All right, let’s assume.  Even if it makes an ass out of you and me.  (Yeah, funny.)  Above are two examples.  Let’s assume one guy is a liberal.  And the other is a conservative.  Which is which?  Well, you know the corporate guy has to be the conservative because liberals hate the corporate world.  And that means the loser must be the liberal.

The conservative guy had value.  He was good at things.  A lot of things.  So good that he advanced up the corporate ladder.  But then he lost his girl.  And, with her, his mojo.  The liberal, on the other hand, never had any value.  He was never good at anything.  Except destroying the world.  If you want to count that.

This loser describes many liberals today.  I mean, when you look at them, what ability do they have?  (I’m talking about the far left.  That 20% of the population.  Not rank and file Democrats.  Or moderates/independents.  Just that 20%.)  They’re not entrepreneurs.  They’re not small business owners.  They’re not the people with real jobs.  No, they can’t do any of these things because they lack any ability.  All the while growing up.  In high school.  College.  They were never as good as those people with real ability.  Those over-achievers.  Which left them embittered.  Jealous.  Envious.  Desperate that somebody, anybody, would recognize some special talent in them.  So they could feel useful.  And, in time, people would.  Find that special talent.  Destroying the world.

Look at me, Look at me, Look at me, Look at me – I’m Important                                          

They don’t set out with the goal of destroying the world.  They just do.  Because their actions have consequences.  Big consequences.  You see, these liberals find themselves in positions of prominence that require no ability.  But these positions exert influence.  Big time.  It’s like that thing with a butterfly flapping its wings.  The Butterfly Affect.  The slight movement of a butterfly’s wings can ripple through the atmosphere and influence the weather.  Or something like that.  The idea is that something small can have big consequences.  And this is how liberals, small people, can have such a large impact on the world.

These people of no ability go to college and get worthless social ‘science’ degrees.  Some love college so much they never leave.  They become professors in worthless social ‘science’ programs.  They feel important.  And don’t have to work anymore (that’s what TAs are for).  College professors are frat boys that never grow up.  They still want to stick it to the man.  Party.  Agitate.  And they’re teaching our kids.

Journalists are no longer journalists.  They’re not objective.  These pompous elitists come out and say they are shaping the news.  To help us think correctly.  They do so because they truly believe that they are superior to us.  And who are these people?  Take away FOX News, talk radio and the Internet, they’re all liberal.  And there are people out there who still think that the network news, The New York Times, NPR, etc., are objective news sources.  So they believe the liberal spin.

Movie and television stars get rich and famous by pretending to be people they are not.  After awhile, they start getting that empty feeling.  People love some of the characters they’ve played.  Smart.  Courageous.  Powerful.  Politically savvy.  People transfer these feelings of admiration onto the actors playing these roles.  And the actor wants to believe this admiration.  So they try to prove they can do more than pretend to be someone else.  Like Milli Vanilli who wanted to prove they could sing and put out an album where they did in fact sing, some of these actors want to prove that they’ve got brains, too.  So they adopt a cause.  Get politically active.  But they often don’t have a clue what they’re talking about.  Take Charlie Sheen, for example.  Great actor.  At least on Two and Half Men (funny show).  But he speaks out about 9/11.  Calling it an inside job.  Because of how the buildings imploded.  Even though he’s not a structural engineer.  Or understood the radical design that gave that great open floor space in those towers that ultimately proved to be their Achilles heel.  But he’s a big star.  When he speaks a lot of people will hear him.  Giving credence to whatever he says.  Especially if people are putting a microphone in front of him.  People assume he must know what he’s talking about.  Because they’re putting a microphone in front of him.

Rich people that inherited their wealth don’t want to be pariahs.  Rich people are evil.  We’re to scorn them.  Well, they want us to like them.  And they want to enjoy their obscene, unearned wealth without having to feel guilty for being rich.  So they champion liberal causes.  The Left then loves them.  They no longer scorn these rich people.  And they speak out.  For liberal causes.  To get more of that love that eases their rich guilt.  And people believe them.  Because they’re rich.  And rich people can do whatever they want.  So if they’re supporting some cause instead of yachting or something, they must really believe in that cause.  They must know something.  Because you have to be smart to be rich.  So people do likewise.  And support their causes.  Because it seems like the right thing to do.

And then you have politicians.  These people who have but one skill.  They lie.  And they lie very well.  They can manipulate people to vote for them.  And once the people elect them, they finally get the validation they’ve always craved.  They feel special.  And it soon goes to their head.  These little people finally get their revenge.  They have power.  They can get back at all those over achievers that mocked them all their lives.  And do.  By writing anti-business legislation.  By taxing away as much of their wealth as they can.  To pay themselves well.  And to show the world who’s better.  To satiate those great big egos.  And to make sure we all know whose bitch we are.  They’re better than us.  We serve them.  And must applaud them.  For they live on props.  Like the narcissists they are.

Laughing all the way to the Bank on the Taxpayer’s Dime

While brilliant people go on to become entrepreneurs, small business owners, captains of industry, etc., the liberal develops illusions of grandeur.  Because of circumstance, they find themselves in positions of prominence.  And it goes to their head.  They meddle in things they shouldn’t.  And more times than not make a mess of things.  Whether they’re writing bad legislation or influencing people to support bad legislation, the end result is the same.  Congress passes bad legislation.  And we, the people, have to pick up the pieces.  Those unintended consequences.

But they don’t care.  Especially the politicians.  Even if we vote them out of office.  Because they get pensions for life.  You see, the elite take care of their own.  And even if we do boot them out of office, they’ll still live better than we do.  They’ll still get those paychecks.  They just won’t go to the office anymore.  Instead, they’ll just dick around.  Their new métier.  While laughing all the way to the bank.
