Generally speaking, the goals of today’s leftists are NOT in conflict with the accepted morality. On the contrary, the left takes an accepted moral principle, adopts it as its own, and then accuses mainstream society of violating that principle. Examples: racial equality, equality of the sexes, helping poor people, peace as opposed to war, nonviolence generally, freedom of expression, kindness to animals. Leftists, especially those of the oversocialized type, usually do not rebel against these principles but justify their hostility to society by claiming (with some degree of truth) that society is not living up to these principles.
Many leftists have an intense identification with the problems of groups that have an Image of being weak (women), defeated (American Indians), outcast (homosexuals) or otherwise inferior. The leftists themselves feel that these groups are inferior. They would never admit to themselves that they have such feelings, but it is precisely because they do see these groups as inferior that they identify with their problems. (We do not mean to suggest that women, Indians, homosexuals ARE inferior; we are only making a point about leftist psychology.)

It is this contextual indicator that has allowed the formulation of many jokes in popular culture about people perceiving the word "Mexican" itself as an insult. The character Michael Scott, played by actor… Continue reading How To End Racism, Part 2

In today's mainstream society, the concept of being fragile - physically or psychologically - is considered and defended as an ideal characteristic. Historically, suffering has been promoted culturally in each of the Abrahamic religions: Moses suffers through arduous wandering and finds the Hebrew God in a burning bush, then suffers even greater after finding the Promised Land… Continue reading Beyond Resilience; the True Opposite of Fragility
