Aussie economy

A view point on some of the risks (bubbles) in the Aussie economy.
Anyone interested in the Aussie economy with a hour plus or so to spare here is long, extensive look which doesn’t present a particularly pretty picture. It is written with a very “Aussie tone”

Cultural Frankfurt?

UpandComer

Roland Joffe’s ‘the Killing Fields’ is a better source for Communist creativity and empowerment of the proletariat.
Jung Chung’s Mao The Untold Story gives a great gestalt of the madness of the fat little pervert and what he did to China. If only the nationalists had murdered the little prick when they had the chance.
The real threat of communism now is cultural marxism.
The Guardian will tell you that it’s all an alt-right conspiracy. But you can test the ideas against reality and decide.
“Identity shall be morality” – Max Horkheimer.
“Logic is not independent of content” – in other words, 2 + 2 = red, according to it’s own ‘new’ internal logic – Max Horkheimer
“Repressive Tolerance” – by Herbert Marcuse is a hand-book and instruction manual of new-speak that every modern left thinker is the product of, whether they know it or not.
Repressive Tolerance and Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, plus Derrida and Noam Chomsky is the modern left. That is, the intelligent minority.
Herbert Marcuse wrote ‘Eros and Civilization”. It’s the fore-runner of queer theory. The thesis is that what used to be western civilization represses the sexual self because it favors progress over sexual fulfillment.
Marcuse favoured “polymorphous perversity” – all sexual relations except for heterosexual monogamy should be favoured and propagated in order to destroy the nuclear family which he describes as that ‘perverse, fundamentally capitalist weapon of the oppressors of the self and society”.
Georgy Lukaj was minister of culture in Hungary in 1918. As a Bolshevik, he sought to debase the culture such that economic communism would seem viable. He instituted a policy he called ‘cultural terrorism’.
Children were presented with graphic sexual content in schools and taught a purely materialist and hedonistic sexual morality. At that time the people were outraged. When Romania invaded in 1919, Lukaj fled. If only he’d been shot. Of course, nowadays his ideas are firmly shielded behind feminism and the homosexual movement. Lukaj is the inspiration for SAFE schools and the idea that hypergamy is empowerment.
Antonio Gramsci died in a prison in 1937 in Mussolini’s Italy. Mussolini literally did nothing wrong up until the point he declared war. If he’d shot dead all the Frankfurt School founders along with the mafia it would have been an enormous service to humanity. It’s such a shame Pinochet didn’t control Italy at the time.
Max Horkheimer created ‘Critical theory’ at Columbia in 1934. In short, all art, literature and science is reduced to ‘race and phallus’.
All human endeavour is a political manifestation of power relations. Every action, every omission.
Theodore Adorno wrote ‘The Authoritarian Personality’. It said Americans were implicitly as bad as the Nazis. He set the groundwork for the ideas of ‘unconscious bias’ and ‘implicit racism’ which are scientifically invalid and false and don’t exist.
Adorno the donkey says that traditional gender roles aren’t a natural manifestation of biology – they are of course a construct. But more particularly, a construct which is the primary component in the formation of Nazi parties.
Additionally, the Frankfurt school like a virus is responsible for the propagation of the Miletian philosophy of:
Subjectivism and Relativism: truth is relative and subjective.
There are competing philosophies which are more compelling. Most notably Aristotle as presented in Thomism.
All of the foundations of the old classical liberal education – metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, logic, rhetoric, are grounded in objective, non-relative principles.
All of this has been replaced by critical theory and the idea that “Logic is not independent of content”.
One could go on and on.
But basically all of the cultural artifacts prevalent today are the result of the Frankfurt School.
Cultural Marxism is utterly ascendant. The coming civil war in the United States is in large part caused by their ideas. Ted Kennedy defended the 1965 Immigration Bill by using the language of the Frankfurt School.
It’s okay to be white.
Ardern of course is not of the likes of the men described. But her “Intention is Reality” utterance, could only come in a cultural marxist culture. Such a statement in 1912 would have been regarded as retarded. Now, it’s meh

-------------
"the words of an old survivor from the Hungarian uprising telling me many years ago…
Such a society was not based on the rule of law and the making of mutually agreed agreements between parties for mutual benefit (based on trust), which is the base rock of Capitalism.
“Under Communism, it was every man for himself,” he told me."
-----------------
Or as Denis Glover put it:
“Little for the many, much for the some
Ev’ry ones biting
Ev’ry ones bum”

--------------
Does this come from Marx?

In a secondary manner. I’m not an expert.
Cultural marxists are economic marxists. I should have stated that all of the figures I’ve specified above, Mercuse, Adorno, Horkheimer, Lukaj, I should have mentioned also Max Field, all were actually members of the German or Hungarian communist party or Bolsheviks.
They were from a range of Eurpean states, but congregated in the Weimar period in 1923 in the University of Frankfurt. The movement originally sought to facilitate Communist economic ascendancy by erosion of competing western institutions.
Horkheimer left Germany in 1933, and was granted his own school at the University of Columbia in New York in 1934. He sold himself as a persecuted liberal intellectual seeking asylum. He was a cultural terrorist. I mean just the titles of the works these guys wrote should give off warning bells. His most famous work was called ‘Eclipse of Reason’ in 1947. Because reason is separate from content, and transcends identity. So it must be replaced.
Horkheimer and Frederich Pollock created critical theory which has destroyed the liberal arts and was the foundation of identity politics. If you wonder why kids can study English at university for 5 years and leave without being able to read, it’s because of the Frankfurt School.
Khrushchev gave a secret speech in 1956 that revealed formerly unknown data about Stalin’s economic, military and civic leadership in the 20th Communist party congress. It got smuggled out and reported in the Observer. That event, and the fall of the Berlin Wall and reports from escapees utterly discredited economic marxism.
So the individuals in the Frankfurt school, who completely destroyed the academy and media in the 1960’s pivoted. They replaced the oppression by the Bourgeoisie of the proletariat two things.
1) With the oppression of everyone by Western Society, adopting Freud.
One aspect was sexual: That’s what I was describing in Mercuse’s works, which inspired third wave feminism and Queer theory.
The other aspect was cultural: He also promoted books by Horkheimer saying that Western society was culturally conformist – one I think was called the “dialectic of Enlightenment”.
2) The oppression by a majority in control of institutions (white males) of every other possible facet of society.
So the mass importation of the third world. The propaganda every white child faces from the moment they exist that white identity, culture, history, personality, art, and ideas are evil and bad and wrong. The destruction of the academy. The erosion of all institutions. The balkanisation of society. The debasement of sexual discourse. The permanent victim mentality. The mestatisation of the welfare state. The debasement of religion – many of the Priests who committed sexual misdemeanours were adherents to the school who infiltrated the church. The debasement of architecture. The fetishization of the infantile. The fetishization of dindus and the third world. Identity politics. Third wave feminism.
All of these things were propagated, promoted, and facilitated by the Frankfurt School as it existed in New York.
It can’t be emphasised enough how systematic and how damaging the worm-tonguing has been.
I would argue mental health, obesity, childlessness, domestic violence, so much phenomena is connected with the ideas of the Frankfurt school. All of which are debased. It’s actually hilarious when the Guardian and Salon and Slate say it’s a conspiracy. These are the people who had to delete all their articles saying Pedophiles and kiddie fucking isn’t so bad, and why don’t we just give them a chance, it’s just another stop on the lane of sexual liberation and expression and fulfilment.
Western universities are uniformly cultural marxist. It’s so engrained in our discourse and ideas we don’t even notice it. The more they say it doesn’t exist, the more you know it does. Go and read this material for yourselves and then see if my observations have empirical validity or not
------------
Sources of toxic progressivism: 1. French revolution, and their obsession with equality, and murdering everyone who is unequal. 2. Carl Marx, and his systematic resentment of successful people and agitation for murdering them. 3. Franz Boas and his false anthropology based on the lie that all races are equally abled for goodness and prosperity. 4. Frankfurt school, their method of long march through the institutions and demonization of their opponents. 5. French post-modernist philosophers, their obsession with inverting all value and power/hierarchy structures. 6. American inter-sectional feminism, gender studies and critical race theory, the practical implementation of the previous points.
-----------------------
I should say I do not like racism myself. But the ongoing fight against racism has turned into a fight against common sense. In fact, it often takes the form of fighting against reality. The same goes for feminism. It has reached a stage at which it can no longer be satirised – it is too absurd for satire.
This is a logical result of utopianism. Those who believe in a possibility of building a perfect society based on an intellectual model – be it Marxist, Nazi or the fashionable Multicaltural+Feminist+LGBT Friendly+Secular Democratic (but Islam and Sharia Friendly) one (perhaps, the silliest of them all) – have a simplified and distorted idea of man and the world.
And they try to force the real people and the real world to conform to their simplified and distorted picture. When people and the world do not live up to their expectations, the utopians are surprised and angry. They use persuasion and when that does not work, resort to violence, sometimes of most horrible sort.
The worst example I know is Kampuchea under the Khmer Rouge. But the supposedly “great” French Revolution of 1789 was pretty bad too and it set the pattern for subsequent utopian revolutions. It was French revolutionaries who put “enemies of the people” on barges and sunk them. This method of mass murder was successfully used by Stalin (it seems he knew his history well). It was also French revolutionaries who declared a war on the Catholic Church and tried to establish a neo-pagan cult of the “goddess of reason”. Lenin and Stalin waged an even more ruthless war on the Orthodox Church, though without the “goddess of reason” cult, which they rightfully deemed too ridiculous.
Thus, although different utopians have different utopias and sometimes have bitter fights among themselves, they have the same objects of hatred: traditional religion, traditional family, traditional morals, traditional culture, traditional art – in a word, all things which are real and which have stood the test of time.
They see the flaws of all those things, which exist in reality, and want to destroy them in order to turn the world into a paradise, which exists only in their minds. Whatever this paradise might look in theory, in practice it usually resembles a vision of hell. But utopians are blind fanatics and they try hard to believe that the hell of their making is heaven on earth and throw a tantrum every time somebody disagrees.
Thus, the prospects of the modern Western world are rather frightening. Its political system, mainstream media, education, culture and even many supposedly Christian denominations have been hijacked by politically correct utopians who, with fanatical fervour, destroy the very foundations of European civilisation. They have good intentions, which will make an excellent pavement for the coming hell on earth.
And there seems to be no force that would be capable to stop them.

Where has our education "experience" gone?

Dr. Susan Berry writes —
“In a discussion with American Enterprise Institute (AEI) scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, Paglia said:
’What has happened is these young people now getting to college have no sense of history of any kind. No sense of history. No world geography. No sense of the violence and the barbarities of history. So, they think that the whole world has always been like this, a kind of nice, comfortable world where you can go to the store and get orange juice and milk, and you can turn on the water and the hot water comes out. They have no sense whatever of destruction, of the great civilizations that rose and fell, and so on, and how arrogant people get when they’re in a comfortable civilization, etc. So they now are being taught to look around them to see defects in America – which is the freest country in the history of the world – and to feel that somehow America is the source of all evil in the universe, and it’s because they’ve never been exposed to the actual evil of the history of humanity. They know nothing!’
Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, slammed the trend of public schools beginning the teaching of ‘identity politics,’ such as that found in ‘sexual harassment sensitivity training’ and ‘diversity training,’ all the while true education is absent.” (Highlighting added.)
Patriots of all persuasions must act to learn and to teach our special heritage of freedom.
If they do not do so, this heritage will shortly be lost!

Manus Island, economic or asylum


MANUS ISLAND – WHAT ‘OUR’ MEDIA IS NOT REPORTING and Government is hiding from us
* All the men on Manus Island paid People Smugglers to bring them illegally from Java to Christmas Island by boat.
* All the men of Manus Island have already had their claims for refugee status completed by the Papua New Guinea government.
* With the completion of the processing of all claims, the PNG government has now decided closed the Manus Regional Processing Centre (RPC).
* There are clear pathways ahead of for all those currently in the now closed processing centre;
~ Failed asylum seekers are in PNG illegally and should return to their country of origin (as hundreds already have done) with the Governments of PNG and Australia facilitating voluntary returns.
~ Those found to be refugees can settle within PNG, as agreed under the arrangement struck between the Australian Government and the Government of Papua New Guinea in 2013.
~ Those found to be Refugees who do not wish to resettle in PNG can apply for resettlement in the United States or apply to move to Nauru.
* While they await these outcomes, ALL refugees and ALL failed asylum seekers have alternative accommodation options;
~ Those found to be refugees can move to the East Lorengau Refugee Transit Centre (ELRTC) or the West Lorengau Haus (WLH)
~ Failed asylum seekers can move to the Hillside Haus.
* All of the alternative accommodation centres – ELRTC, WLH and Hillside Haus – are operational and ready to receive residents – with; food, water, shelter, toilets, as well as medical, security and welfare services are available at the alternative accommodation sites.
* It should be noted that several refugees and failed asylum seekers have already moved and they are comfortably accessing services and support at these locations.
* Political activists are encouraging failed asylum seekers and PNG-determined refugees to illegally squat on a PNG Naval Base, hoping that Australia will eventually take them.
* If these political activists were really concerned about the welfare of these failed asylum seekers and refugees, they would instead be encouraging them to access the services and supports (including; food, water, accommodation, as well as medical, security and welfare services) that the PNG government has generously provided at alternative locations. Instead these political activists are using these men as pawns for their publicity.
It would be very easy to say, “just allow all the failed asylum seekers to resettle in Australia” – but this would only put the People Smugglers back in business, and the deaths at sea would start again – and that’s something we are determined never to see happen again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The other side of Manus Island

https://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2017/11/the_other_side_of_manus_island.html#comments
As the focus goes on the remaining asylum seekers on Manus Island, it is worth remembering why Australia has such an uncompromsing policy on not allowing people who arrive by boat to be settled in Australia.
This shows the number of asylum seekers arriving by boat every year since 2002. During the Labor Government the numbers increased exponentially. In 2013 there were over 20,000 arrivals by boat. If the policy had not changed that number was likely to keep growing. There could well have been a further 100,000 by now.
Instead there has been, well zero. Yes, zero. Why? Because incentives matter. People smugglers won’t convince desperate people to pay them lots of money and try to sail to Australia if they know that arriving by boat means they will never get to settle in Australia.
And this is the more compelling graph. The former “kind” policy saw hundreds drown at sea. I’m not sure there is any good way to die, but I am sure that a very bad way to die is in the middle of the ocean in a storm in an over-crowded boat. And many of those drowned were kids.
So the “kind” policy saw over 1,200 asylum seekers drown horribly at sea. The “nasty” policy has seen that number reduce to zero. Not ten, Not five but zero. And it has been zero for four years in a row.
So one can of course have lots of sympathy for the poor people on Manus Island. They wanted to live in Australia and instead they are now living in Papua New Guinea.
But decisions have consequences. If one allowed the few hundred remaining to live in Australia, then it is absolutely certain that the people smugglers would be back in business and the sailings and drownings would increase again. It is not a coincidence these numbers have reduced to zero. It is a direct consequence of Australia’s policy.

7 stages of sex

not the karma sutra
Results of a recent research shows that there are 7 kinds of sex.
The 1st kind of sex is called: Smurf Sex. This kind of sex happens when you first meet someone and you both have sex until you are blue in the face.
The 2nd kind of sex is called: Kitchen Sex. This is when you have been with your partner for a short time and you are so needy you will have sex anywhere, even in the kitchen.
The 3rd kind of sex is called: Bedroom Sex. This is when you have been with your partner for a long time. Your sex has gotten routine and you usually have sex only in your bedroom.
The 4th kind of sex is called: Hallway Sex. This is when you have been with your partner for too long. When you pass each other in the hallway you both say “screw you”
The 5th kind of sex is called: Religious Sex. Which means you get Nun in the morning, Nun in the afternoon and Nun at night.
The 6th kind is called Courtroom Sex. This is when you cannot stand your wife any more. She takes you to court and screws you in front of everyone.
And Last, but not least…. The 7th kind of sex is called: Social Security Sex. You get a little each month. But not enough to enjoy yourself.
----------
Conversation between a man and a woman:
Man: “I believe in sex on the first date, whether the woman agrees or not!”
Woman: “Ah…so, what time are you picking me up?”
Question: How do you help the woman?
Answer: You don’t help her. You help yourself. Do as much as possible before her date.
If she has your key, change your locks.
If she owes you money, try to collect as much as you can.
If you owe her money, try to pay her off.
Basically, wall her off from your affairs and keep her life from spilling over onto yours.

Three Kick Rule

Three Kick Rule
I am sure their are many different variations
A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural North Cowra. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer’s field on the other side of a fence.
As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, “I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I’m going to retrieve it.”
The old farmer Peter replied, “This is my property, and you are not coming over here.”
The indignant lawyer said, “I am one of the best trial lawyers in Australia and, if you don’t let me get that duck, I’ll sue you and take everything you own.”
The old farmer smiled and said, “Apparently, you don’t know how we settle disputes in North Cowra . We settle small disagreements like this with the ‘Three Kick Rule.’
The lawyer asked, “What is the ‘Three Kick Rule’?”
The Farmer replied, “Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up.”
The lawyer quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.
The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel-toed work boot into the lawyer’s groin and dropped him to his knees!
His second kick to t he midriff sent the lawyer’s last meal gushing from his mouth. The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer’s third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.
Summoning every bit of his will and remaining strength the lawyer very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, “Okay, you old fart. Now it’s my turn.”
The old farmer smiled and said, “Nah, I give up. You can have the duck.”
When you are educated, you’ll believe only half of what you hear.
When you’re intelligent, you know which half.

not a race but ideology

Muslims are not a race.
They are upholders of a diabolic fascist supremacist imperial cultist religion.

Islam should be condemned and though unfortunate that condemnation will shower over the believers, whether radicals, fundamentalists, so called moderates, or in name only, and any enablers.

It will  be up to the believer, to learn more about islam and remain; or become an apostate.

Social Justice Syndrome: ‘Rising Tide of Personality Disorders Among Millennials’

Social Justice Syndrome: ‘Rising Tide of Personality Disorders Among Millennials’

https://pjmedia.com/blog/social-justice-syndrome-rising-tide-of-personality-disorders-among-millenials/
It does seem to explain some of the problems of 18-30 year olds that I have come across. 
Fortunately not all are like this, but there can still be a residue from high school or university,  but they can figure things in the wider world.
It can be a shock for some though, as everything is done on "feelings" transposed into their thoughts,  so it is with great difficulty for them to step back and then to accept the simple facts with no feelings. Then to be able to come up with what their next step should be.
---------------------

If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.
All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.
Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).
Of course, not every SJW has a personality condition, but sufferers from High Conflict disorders are often drawn to extreme beliefs and behaviors under the illusion that they are acting politically.


A 2016 UK survey found that, since 1990, rates of depression and anxiety among the young have increased by 70%, while the American Counseling Association has reported a “rising tide of personality disorders among millennials.”
That such disorders appear to be an acute problem with this generation may be an unintended outcome of the unprecedented experiment conducted in the 1990s and 2000s by progressive parents.
Persecution Complex and the "Safe Space"
In 2014, a survey of 100,000 college students at 53 U.S. campuses by the American College Health Association found that 84% of U.S. students feel unable to cope, while more than half experience overwhelming anxiety.
A byproduct of such fear has been the growth of the “safe space,” a safe-haven for minority groups and distressed students from what they perceive as threats within campus life. Safe spaces contain comforting objects that evoke childhood -- bean bags, soothing music, Play-Doh, coloring books. The spaces often forbid entry to straight white men or political opponents.

The idea of “running to the safe space” is a form of psychological regression. The safe space presents a fantasy barrier against imagined exterior evils, and so encourages persecution paranoia and hyper-fragility. These are all symptoms of histrionic, borderline, and paranoid personality disorders that emerge from problems with the early child-parent bond.
The majority of millennial children (now aged 18-34) had two working parents; this was partly an ideological project of feminism and partly economic necessity. The downside was the damage done by daycare, services for which grew by 250% between the 1970s and ;90s (see Laura Perrins’ work on psychological trauma caused by daycare). According to Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Thesis, babies require two years of intimate attention to enable them to form the caregiver-child bond essential for secure ego formation. Any disturbance of this process will “predispose the children to respond in an anti-social way to later stresses.”
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has found:
Children in full-time day care were close to three times more likely to show behavior problems than those cared for by their mothers at home.
The more time in child care of any kind or quality, the more aggressive the child.
The result is young people who, a decade and a half after daycare, scream at the parent/State for not protecting them sufficiently. It is no coincidence that “safe spaces” resemble daycare centers.
Unfortunately, “safe spaces” enforce the distressed person’s fear of the world, trapping them in their original trauma within a psychological frame of permanent and inescapable victimhood.
“Trigger Warnings” and “Helicopter Parents”
For the SJW, everyday speech contains a multitude of “microaggressions,” or subconscious power dynamics which conceal colonial or patriarchal oppression. Failing to use the words prescribed by SJW activists -- most particularly in the case of “trans-people” -- is seen as an act of violence equivalent to physical assault. See, for example, a statement made by a protester at UC Berkeley in January 2017 at a protest event that turned into a violent riot:
Your free speech is raping and killing us.
People with High Conflict Personality disorders experience similarly paranoid emotions about hidden messages, omnipotent threats, and imminent violence. They are hyper-alert and live with higher than normal levels of cortisol and adrenalin, which in turn causes lasting neurological damage, affecting their ability to reason and to regulate emotion. They panic easily and regress to infantile distress.
Faced with histrionic students, university staff end up behaving like “Helicopter Parents”: those largely absent, full-time working parents who overcompensated by flying in to fuss over their child. Attempting to assuage parental guilt, one of the tools they used was “positive parenting” -- a philosophy created by social Progressives.
Parents were taught to not scold or punish, and instead to use “positive reinforcement” in an attempt to raise their children with “high self-esteem.” This ideology also became fashionable within an increasingly progressive school system that awarded children prizes for “non-competitive sports” and for merely taking part in school activities.
As they passed from day care to through high school, these children with artificially enforced high self-esteem were also told that they were morally superior to generations that came before. They were inducted into politically correct language and were even taught to lecture their own parents on racism, equality, and ecology. From the ages of six to eighteen, they took part in yearly multiculturalist “save the planet” projects. They were told they had a heroic destiny as “agents of change.”
A false picture of the world and a vastly inflated sense of self-importance did not compensate for the foundational trauma of parental neglect. Instead, as Dr. Jean Twenge has explained, Positive Parenting created young people with a “narcissistic wound” for whom the real world would be perceived as a threat to self-worth.
Border Violation and Self-Harm
The Positive Parenting movement expounded the beliefs that “there is no boundary between you and your child” and that “you are friends and equals.” For the child growing up without “paternalistic laws” and boundaries, the only way to find limits was to attack the only boundary it knew: its own bodily boundaries.
In this light it is worth exploring why the Fourth Wave feminist/social justice activist group known as “Femen” should mimic the outward signs of the BPD sufferer. Their trademark form of protest is public toplessness, with slogans written over the belly and breasts in fake or real blood. One classic Femen image is of an almost-naked woman holding a protest sign that reads: “Rape Me. I’m a Slut.” The intention may have been to demonstrate that no matter how sexually a woman dresses she is still not “asking for it.” But public nudity as a protest against sexual violation is a contradictory signal -- and sending out conflicted messages around dangerous sexual subjects is a symptom of BPD and NPD.
The Femen protester may subconsciously be saying, “show me boundaries and control, show me authority and concern.” She might be displaying the pain of living within a self-in-contradiction.
Contradiction and Splitting
SJW protests are awash with contradictions. SJWs claim to fight for freedom, but are opposed to freedom of speech, support banning videos and books, and support the violent disruption of public talks, as was seen with the riots at UC Berkeley, Middlebury College, and elsewhere.
SJWs believe in a world with “no boundaries” where “everyone is equal” -- free immigration, open access to healthcare and education, etc. -- but at the same time are obsessed with creating segregated spaces.
While they protest against the “fascist patriarchal state” they are, at the same time, fundamentally Statist, demanding that the government police language for them and punish their enemies. While SJWs claim to fight for human rights, they parade the symbol of the largest genocides in history -- the Communist flag. They are pro-feminist, and at the same time defend Sharia law.
Living-in-contradiction is similar to the “Love me -- I hate you” dynamic in Borderline pathology called “Splitting.” In splitting, everything is “all or nothing,” and the thing that was passionately idealized suddenly becomes an object of hatred. Traitors are everywhere. This was exemplified by the expulsion of gay men and “TERFS” -- “Trans exclusionary radical feminists” -- from LGBT+ groups by Intersectional feminists.
Along with splitting comes the symptoms of low-impulse control, histrionics, dysphoria, a pervasive sense of emptiness, suicidal ideation, and self-harming.
Symbolic demonstrations of self-harming behaviors are widely used in SJW protests. Along with smearing faces with fake blood to signify female oppression, a protest group called Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants in the UK in 2015 took razors to their arms in public to “spill rivers of blood.”
With an attempted self-immolation and a reported “contagion” of suicide threats occurring during the Trump protests, thousands attempted to use politics as an alibi for a deeper inner compulsion to self-harm.
The Results of the Human Experiment
Trapped among infant neglect, artificially elevated self-esteem, and identity dysphoria, the millennials were set up for a fall.
When they were pushed out of their parental homes in the 2010s, they discovered they did not have the tools to construct stable selves. They couldn’t blame their parents or teachers. Instead they searched for a vast, abstract, all-encompassing enemy. In identity politics they found a temporary unity, through hatred of Patriarchy, of Capitalism, of White Men.
In President Trump they found their savior.
In the stages before psychosis, sufferers from High Conflict Personality disorders fixate on one object of hate. Subconsciously, they need this super-enemy so they can feel whole. This is the tragic truth of the identity politics of the SJW. Without a totalizing object of blame, the personality of the warrior for social justice falls apart.
While the SJWs idealize themselves as victims of omnipresent evil, they are in fact the victims of well-meaning liberal parents and progressive teachers who subjected them to an experiment in social engineering. They were the guinea pigs of the progressive project. 

Older generations of radicals then exploited their volatility and rage for political ends.

What the Social Justice Warriors are actually asking for, when they scream at us, is our help.

Is there a qualification to be leftist?

Weekend Must-Read: Ten Reasons Why I Am No Longer a Leftist

[It seems a bit over the top, and all over the place, though I have meet people that show some of that vehemence of how they support some of these things.
Perhaps some of the difference is that right wingers, say they "do not give a stuff" and just get on with "work and life".
Only very few get as hung up as this writer did to that level, though he did enjoy and retain parts of where he did enjoy.
After all life is to be lived.]


How far left was I? So far left my beloved uncle was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party in a Communist country. When I returned to his Slovak village to buy him a mass card, the priest refused to sell me one. So far left that a self-identified terrorist proposed marriage to me. So far left I was a two-time Peace Corps volunteer and I have a degree from UC Berkeley. So far left that my Teamster mother used to tell anyone who would listen that she voted for Gus Hall, Communist Party chairman, for president. I wore a button saying "Eat the Rich." To me it wasn't a metaphor.
I voted Republican in the last presidential election.
Below are the top ten reasons I am no longer a leftist. This is not a rigorous comparison of theories. This list is idiosyncratic, impressionistic, and intuitive. It's an accounting of the milestones on my herky-jerky journey.


10) Huffiness.
In the late 1990s I was reading Anatomy of the Spirit, a then recent bestseller by Caroline Myss.
Myss described having lunch with a woman named Mary. A man approached Mary and asked her if she were free to do a favor for him on June 8th. No, Mary replied, I absolutely cannot do anything on June 8th because June 8th is my incest survivors' meeting and we never let each other down! They have suffered so much already! I would never betray incest survivors!   [virtue signal]
Myss was flabbergasted. Mary could have simply said "Yes" or "No."
Reading this anecdote, I felt that I was confronting the signature essence of my social life among leftists. We rushed to cast everyone in one of three roles: victim, victimizer, or champion of the oppressed. We lived our lives in a constant state of outraged indignation. I did not want to live that way anymore. I wanted to cultivate a disposition of gratitude. I wanted to see others, not as victims or victimizers, but as potential friends, as loved creations of God. I wanted to understand the point of view of people with whom I disagreed without immediately demonizing them as enemy oppressors.
I recently attended a training session for professors on a college campus. The presenter was a new hire in a tenure-track position. He opened his talk by telling us that he had received an invitation to share a festive meal with the president of the university. I found this to be an enviable occurrence and I did not understand why he appeared dramatically aggrieved. The invitation had been addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. X." Professor X was a bachelor. He felt slighted. Perhaps the person who had addressed his envelope had disrespected him because he is a member of a minority group.
Rolling his eyes, Prof. X went on to say that he was wary of accepting a position on this lowly commuter campus, with its working-class student body. The disconnect between leftists' announced value of championing the poor and the leftist practice of expressing snobbery for them stung me. Already vulnerable students would be taught by a professor who regarded association with them as a burden, a failure, and a stigma.
Barack Obama is president. Kim and Kanye and Brad and Angelina are members of multiracial households. One might think that professors finally have cause to teach their students to be proud of America for overcoming racism. Not so fast, Professor X warned.  His talk was on microaggression, defined as slights that prove that America is still racist, sexist, homophobic, and ableist, that is, discriminatory against handicapped people.
Professor X projected a series of photographs onto a large screen. In one, commuters in business suits, carrying briefcases, mounted a flight of stairs. This photo was an act of microaggression. After all, Professor X reminded us, handicapped people can't climb stairs.
I appreciate Professor X's desire to champion the downtrodden, but identifying a photograph of commuters on stairs as an act of microaggression and evidence that America is still an oppressive hegemon struck me as someone going out of his way to live his life in a state of high dudgeon. On the other hand, Prof. X could have chosen to speak of his own working-class students with more respect.
Yes, there is a time and a place when it is absolutely necessary for a person to cultivate awareness of his own pain, or of others' pain. Doctors instruct patients to do this -- "Locate the pain exactly; calculate where the pain falls on a scale of one to ten; assess whether the pain is sharp, dull, fleeting, or constant." But doctors do this for a reason. They want the patient to heal, and to move beyond the pain. In the left, I found a desire to be in pain constantly, so as always to have something to protest, from one's history of incest to the inability of handicapped people to mount flights of stairs.
9) Selective Outrage
I was a graduate student. Female genital mutilation came up in class. I stated, without ornamentation, that it is wrong.
A fellow graduate student, one who was fully funded and is now a comfortably tenured professor, sneered at me. "You are so intolerant. Clitoredectomy is just another culture's rite of passage. You Catholics have confirmation."
When Mitt Romney was the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, he mentioned that, as Massachusetts governor, he proactively sought out female candidates for top jobs. He had, he said, "binders full of women." He meant, of course, that he stored resumes of promising female job candidates in three-ring binders.
Op-ed pieces, Jon Stewart's "Daily Show," Twitter, Facebook, and Amazon posts erupted in a feeding frenzy, savaging Romney and the Republican Party for their "war on women."
I was an active leftist for decades. I never witnessed significant leftist outrage over clitoredectomy, child marriage, honor killing, sharia-inspired rape laws, stoning, or acid attacks. Nothing. Zip. Crickets. I'm not saying that that outrage does not exist. I'm saying I never saw it.
