Gun Control as Psycho-Pathology

As I mentioned in my essay The Leftist Sense of Self, I have some interest in Psychology – having taken a class in college, which piqued my interest in the topic.  I was, however, turned off by the department’s leanings towards Skinner and the Operant Conditioning school of thought (while I concede that school-of-thought plays a factor in the mind, I’m more of a Freudian, seeing the human psyche as the constant warring battle between the ID (the earthly animal side) and the SUPEREGO (the divine soul) in the terrain of the EGO (the day-to-day human experience).  I.e., that we are merely the sum total of the various conditioning “treatments” we experience throughout life doesn’t sit well with me.)

That dormant interest reawakened when I discovered Dr. Sanity, whose blog went dark in 2012, alas.  Still, she’s got some great essays to which I refer quite often, and it’s definitely a browse-worthy place even for being dark.  Two of those essays that I’ve read and re-read often are:

  1. woke up this morning with the thought that there are definite similarities to past liberal(for what ever reason-other than obfuscation-now called progressives) administrations to the German Nationalist party of the nineteen thirties.
    the Nazis took power, gained control of the media and education and politicized law enforcement. they quashed all dissent, disarmed the population and then used the technique or externalized threat to issue draconian emergency rules which had no actual basis in law. the similarities to the innermost desires of diehard liberals on the left-not just the far left-strike me as astonishing.
    the german nazis had their "final solution" for all those they considered undesirable and deplorable.
    i woke up with the thought to wonder if that is what liberals really are desiring in their inner most thought. it is easy to this in the antifa movement where their field operatives run around with a mask over their faces. hiding their identity allows their true inner self to be publicly expressed.

    maybe i just need a nap....

      Great comment and I wouldn't doubt this one iota. Remember they were ready to kill 25/50K? in the eighties

    2. ANTIFA openly states what their goal is: A Communist USA.

      @Brock: It was 25 million they openly discussed "liquidating".

    3. Thanks and I knew something was wrong but after two days of the PATCON and family reunion, I guess my brain didn't register. :)

  2. Not to put too fine a point on it, but tyranny is a never-ending goal for the insecure and paranoid.
