On Communist @JAMyerson, Psychopaths, And Useful Idiots [Updated]

09 February 2014 @ 19:41

Jesse Myerson is a fairly young man and, it seems, a Committed Communist.

He recently published a article over at Salon entitled: Why you’re wrong about communism: 7 huge misconceptions about it (and capitalism).

It is the work of a clearly delusional person who has very little understanding of Human Nature and knowledge of History.

-Stacy McCain has been surgically slicing-up Comrade Myerson’s puerile and preposterous arguments with a skill that proves he has a master’s knowledge and understanding of Leftist philosophy.

In four posts, Stacy has shown Red Jesse to be nothing but, frankly, a First-Class, A-#1 idiot.

Please do take the time to read them all [listed here in chronological order]:

How Much Do You Hate Commies? [Bob: With every fiber of my being]

Teach Your Children Well

The Renegade Jesse Myerson

How @JAMeyerson Blamed @SarahPalinUSA For Tuscon

If you make the effort, you’ll be rewarded for, along with his demolishing of Myerson’s arguments, Stacy provides a handy sketch of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist logic that will prove useful in understanding what the Elites are thinking and are up to in The United States today.

-In the Comments section of Stacy’s third post, Dicentra offers one of the best penetrating insights into the Leftist Mind that I have ever read.  This is worth quoting in full [thanks Di]:

[Stacy wrote:] The extreme egoism of communist leaders is a trait displayed throughout the history of the movement

“Egoism” is a misnomer: such men are full-on psychopaths with Messiah complexes. They are not motivated by ideology but by dark, insatiable desires. Psychopaths have an enormous black hole in their souls; their lives consist solely of trying to fill that void by pursuing the God-like power it would take to Immanentize the Eschaton.

Nothing else is heady enough, and no one can persuade them that they should leave off such an evil pursuit.

They must have their fix.

Marx’s screed provides an ex post facto justification of such a pursuit. People like Marx begin with “I Must Be In Charge” and then devise the intellectual framework to manipulate others into supporting their quest for Messiahship.

Psychopaths (and sociopaths and narcissists) never use language to say what’s on their minds; for them, language is a weapon against their enemies and a tool to acquire what they want. It’s important that we approach their discourse from that angle rather than attributing to them the beliefs and mindsets that they ostensibly profess.

(Rather than saying, “Marx didn’t understand that the free market is the best way to lift the poor from their lowly state,” say that “Marx rejected the free market because it is a self-organizing system that he and his ilk could never hope to control; only a centrally controlled system could satisfy their lusts.”)

Marxism never quite goes away because it is some truly ingenious sophistry: it whispers sweet nothings into the ears of the masses (you’re going to be rich) while flattering psychopaths and their enablers among the intelligentsia with “only you can Set Things Right in this miserable, miserable world.”

The replacement of moral considerations with “practical” ones plays right in to the psychopath’s deadened soul: the power-rush that they get from wielding the God-like power of Death makes it all worthwhile, even if it is transitory.

Failure to spot charming psychopaths and to deny them influence is what always destroys a society. Like opportunistic flesh-eating bacteria, they are harmless while outside the body but deadly when the tiniest scratch lets them inside.

Psychopathy, Nihilism, Gnosticism — what a deadly cocktail for an individual Soul and for all those around that person.

-If you end up reading Comrade Myerson’s article, it wouldn’t surprise me if you ended-up shaking your head in sorrow that such ignorance may be influencing other young people.  But then you might be tempted to say: ‘Well, we’ve always survived despite such idiocy’, but we haven’t — and if we think so then it is we who are in Denial.

Look at the state of America today: we are no longer a constitutional republic and are governed by men and women who have made the politicians and bureaucrats of the Late Roman Republic look like pikers; our Culture worships the profane and the perverse; Normalcy is laughed at and consigned to the Fringes and treated with contempt; and The Idiots, of which Myerson is merely the latest iteration, are winning.

His kind of thinking has successfully invaded and conquered all of our institutions and, most especially, corrupted our way of thinking.

Yes, the Culture is not as Radical as Myerson’s vision would have it, but it is in service of it coming to pass by it’s granting of Legitimacy to it.

Western Civilization has become The Useful Idiot Civilization.

-It feels as if we’re living through the 1930’s again, blissfully and willfully refusing to see that a great cataclysm is about to occur.  Like a few during that dark decade, there are those of us who refuse to be ignornant, but we are labeled as extremeists, terrorists, people not fit to be allowed in polite company.  We have, like Winston Churchill, been banished to The Wilderness — and branded OUTLAWS.

-Ah, the good, old days, when we had the Will to deal with Communists as they can only be effectively dealt with:

Dicentra has left a comment that has to be made part of this post [God love her]:

[Bob wrote:] it wouldn’t surprise me if you ended-up shaking your head in sorrow that such ignorance may be influencing other young people

“Ignorance” isn’t Bob’s word in this case but that of an imaginary reader; nevertheless, I have heard this locution all too often and would strongly recommend that we stop giving the rhetorical benefit of the doubt to leftists ever again.

Stop attributing their ideas to ignorance or naivete or stupidity or whatever else. What they’re peddling is poison, and there’s no good reason for people living after the fall of Communism not to recognize that.

Stop saying “Don’t they get it? Communism doesn’t work!” It actually does work, if by “work” you mean “centralizing power into the hands of a few psychopaths who use that power to destroy their enemies and enrich themselves.”

As it turns out, that’s exactly what they mean by “work.” Call that out.

A few useful idiots may say that it’s all about fairness and equality: such fools are actually eager for a All-Powerful Overlord to take the reins and “set things right.” What pains is that these morons will accept any conditions as “right,” no matter how miserable and oppressive, because for them, “right” is “having a strongman in charge who will swiftly punish people I hate.” They’re not interested in their own liberty, so why would they give a rip about the liberty of a whole nation?

“Everything in the state, nothing outside the state,” sounds GOOD to them. It sounds cozy, controlled, perfect. It’s an ersatz version of Christ’s Millennial Reign that’s being sold to them, and they’re buying it whatever the price. They’re the ones who arrive at the Gulag and wonder why such a horrible thing could exist without Uncle Joe knowing about it.

We can’t help these people.

Aw hell: Just read what the dear departed (withdrawn, not dead) Pat Santy said. I got most of my material from her anyway:

Just browsing through her archives was depressing: she really couldn’t add anything new, because it’s all proceeding as she and others have foreseen.

Brace for impact.

That is all.

Yes, m’am!

    Bob, Fox news has had him on one of their shows and has no issue at all calling him a Communist in a friendly tone.

    This is why I cannot take Fox news serious.
    It is very terrible that this Communist is not shamed.
    I have lost all hope for this nation and do pray that God judges it most severely.

      As long as Fox labels him a Communist, I have no problem putting him on and ‘giving him enough rope…’, as it were.

    I’ve been commenting on those the whole time, and I’ve been unsurprised at the arguements made.

    Dicentra is right about the self organizing aspect of capitalism and this is why you will almost never find the university instructing anyone on Austrian economics. If capitalism is to exist it must only operate under the rule of Keynesian economics. Only the ruling elite have the “insight” to manage the wild west of capitalism….and totally screw it up.

    As to the photo, recollect that that isn’t us having the will to deal with the communists, that was a South Vietnamese officer pulling the trigger. Our media immediately shit their pants and had a thumb-sucking session when it went public.

    We haven’t had the nerve necessary to insure survival since Korea and the 1950’s – as a nation we’re just so big, rich, and dumb, we haven’t the sense to realize we’re dying. Dying through lack of fortitude and good sense. Our liberal society is becoming a suicide pact, because it’s taking us all down with it.

    Erm, you do realize, I presume, that you, to, are “using language”, (though, of course, NOT like a weapon. Not YOU, amirite?), to argue your belief about not just Mersin, but all Communists?

    Wow. No, no I see no psychopathy or narcissism in YOU! (/end sarcasm).

    Here, let me try at your banal word games: Your father molested you, mommy married a liar, and to save your own life story , you have to choose between one of these father figures? So, for you: who’s the liar, Marx or Rand?

    You’re funny.
