The Left Goes Insane

It was Albert Einstein who defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” On some levels, he was correct, but insanity is actually the substitution of fantasy for reality. The guy who believes he’s Napoleon Bonaparte reincarnated and who is obsessively planning to re-conquer Europe is certifiably insane. The woman who believes she is Gaia and therefore divinized as a goddess is a nut case. Both are completely out of touch with reality and everyone surrounding them knows it.

But wholesale denial of reality is not limited to just the occasional individual. Insanity can and does afflict whole groups of people.

    The Left does not GO insane; the Left IS insane.

    Some things never change.

    The other, Islam. The deluded texts and literal followers.

  • Yes, current PC ideas about sexual identity (homosexuality etc.) and other issues, and in particular about Islam, are expressions of collective insanity – i.e. non-sanity, lack of mental health.
    More and more, I also have become convinced of this truth – that we are witnessing massive waves of collective insanity in a variety of fields. This is the only explanation for the way our societies are deliberately heading for suicide.

      Interesting comment. I have wondered for a while how we managed to go from being a caring society that helped people with mental health issues to get better and/or live a normal life to a point where we celebrate and encourage these same mental health issues. You want to be a woman? No problem; here, have an Order of Canada to go with that. It’s sad and disgusting. How many people have to have their lives destroyed before we wake up?

      • Yes, its an abdication of responsibility, and incapacity to judge between one course and another and therefore they opt for permissiveness. The only sin then becomes objecting to this abdication, pointing out its foolishness and folly.

      Maybe it’s something in our diet, like the Romans with their lead problem …?

      • I think it is a cumulative product of philosophical absurdities.

      I’m finding more and more that the people who vote far left really are divorced from reality.

      • Yes, as the article author points out, the problem is a divorce from reality – a belief in the reality of fantasies. And the trouble with that is that getting people back from this dream state is no easy task – a mere rational argument won’t do the trick.

          The problem is that schools are teaching that if it feels good it’s ok to do. I for one am upset at the new grade 6 health curriculum in Alberta, they spent less than an hour talking about safe sex and abstinence but 4 hours talking about how society is innately racist and 4 hours on same sex encounters. The teacher told my oldest’s class that everyone should try a same sex encounter to see what it’s like. Home schooled starting next year.

          • Shocking to hear all this. Yes – home schooling is the only solution. Or maybe private schools, or maybe parent partnerships, guaranteeing sane teachings are the answer (does the law allow?).

            We moved the kids to that school 3 years ago for those sorts of reasons, but this year they replaced the principal and 4 teachers and its caused the programs to be slanted to the left a lot.

            Next year looks like home schooling.

            Funny story – one of the teachers has been having the kids bring in a news story everyweek from an online source. The teacher tried to stop the oldest from using BCF as a source but she couldn’t since its Canadian and deals with Canadian issues. Since the teacher made a stink about it several other of her classmates have also started using BCF for class work. So we have a group of young conservative viewers.

      Or,,,have the mentally defective wormed their way into positions of influence, then declaring their malfunction “normal”, and worse,,,non-acceptance of the “new normal” is now “hate speech”.

      • Yes, there is that too. But also some are already second generation – products of the previous bunch of retards.

    Our mission, should we chose to accept it, is to make sure we keep well clear of the bits as the left goes down in a screaming heap.

    • They are likely to drag everyone else in their gotterdammerung.

      • Brett_McS

        That’s what they are trying to do.

    The united church is an obvious success story with its worship of mother earth. Why, you don’t even have to believe in God to be a minister with them.
