Personality Psychology And Fascism

I have an education in psychology, and much of what I have seen in psychology – especially in personality psychology – has been completely wrong.

According to the definition of the narcissistic personality disorder, the world owes most of what it has to its narcissists. If it is narcissistic to seek great success – or if it is narcissistic to have original ideas – then most of the world's most major contributors – especially in America – have been narcissists. Do not claim that you are supporting your society if you are destroying what made it great or even possible at all.

According to the definition of the sociopathic personality disorder, these people are evil and can only be evil whatever they do. This contradicts the most basic reason. If people are responsible for their actions then anyone can choose to act rightfully; and if some people cannot choose to act rightfully whatever they do then people are not responsible for their actions. This mentality is irrational, it is cruel and it is wrong.

According to the definition of the schizoid disorder, the world owes its moral instruction to schizoids. Many people – and that includes me – have very good reason for believing what they believe. They – and that, once again, includes me – have had many experiences with less than a billionth chance of happening whose only possible explanations are religious. The people who take this stance militate against the instruction of many people much better than themselves. And that makes them the problem.

According to the definition of the borderline disorder, some people are disqualified from having relationships because they had a bad childhood. I can think of no more cruel stance than that. These are the people who need such a thing the most. And the people who want to disqualify them from having such a thing have no business claiming to be compassionate people.

Finally, with histrionic disorder, I do not see why it should be a disorder at all. I see nothing wrong at all with calling attention to yourself, especially if you have something original to say.

So now we are seeing these people fighting what they regard to be bigotry and misogyny. And I am not supporting these people one bit. I owe absolutely nothing to people who choose to treat me like dirt. If you are the strong and independent women that you consider yourselves to be, then go fight alt-right types yourselves and do not depend on someone whom you ridiculously regard to be a misogynist.

When Stalin and Hitler are fighting each other, the correct solution is not to side with either one. It is to let Stalin and Hitler keep fighting each other and not support either villain.

So there was a man who was a boyfriend of a woman I fell in love with, who was saying that I was dangerous. My response to that is that I hope to be dangerous to people like him, and I hope that more people be dangerous to people like him. What we see here is absolute fascism. And fascism has no business existing in countries that claim to be free.

So I will let Stalin and Hitler keep fighting each other. And don't ask for my help. After all, why would you want any help from someone whom you regard to be a misogynist?
