SJW Paranoia and Narcissism: Dangerous Personalities
Nat and LaughingMan have been reading FBI Profiler Joe Navarro’s book “Dangerous Personalities”. However, it was the chapter on the Paranoid personalities that turned out to be both surprisingly familiar and doubly alarming…
For the past few months there have been several juicy stories that we could have tackled: Hollywood Sex Abuse Scandals, the lackluster Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi, Net Neutrality, and so on. But nothing just seemed to really ‘spark’ a discourse. In the meantime, Nat and Laughingman have been reading quite a few books, and one happened to be FBI Profiler Joe Navarro’s book “Dangerous Personalities”. The book covers four dangerous personalities exhibited by some of modern history’s most notorious figures, but the chapter on Paranoid personalities sounded horrifically familiar.
In addition, more and more ex technology pioneers have been warning the public in regards to the dangerous effect that technology is having on society as a whole. Former Facebook executive, Chamath Palihapitiya, has expressed regret for building tools that ‘destroy the social fabric of how society works’. And given the divisive nature of Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and even YouTube, it’s no surprise. However, LaughingMan has a loose theory that perhaps the nature of social media and the Internet is an incubator for paranoia and narcissism. In an age where everyone believes that they are reality tv stars, and publicly air far too much as short sound-bytes, perhaps we are all living in a panopticon where we, the prisoners, are always under the watchful eyes of the court of public opinions.
Coupled with the fear-mongering, click-bait media creating far more divisive and outrageous articles to pad their bottom lines, perhaps it is fostering an ‘ad populum’ online environment, prompting those to virtue signal out of fear of being judged in the court of (supposed) public opinion. SJW groups like Antifa believe that fascists and Nazis are everywhere outside of their circles, and they use violent tactics to suppress opposing speech as a means to justify their ends…
SJWs and violent groups like Antifa are just as Joe Navarro describes the Paranoid Personality: They are habitual wound collectors; they cannot be reasoned with even with hard evidence; they believe that violence and cruelty will achieve their desired outcomes; they will dehumanize opposition and start witch-hunts; anyone who doesn’t agree with them is an enemy.
And in the case of porn star August Ames, the results of these witch-hunts can be nothing short of tragic.
