oh they understand it completely

they just desperately NEED it to not be true

only THEIR SIDE gets to have moral convictions (which are actually just propaganda)

I still cant wrap my mind around how thinking is possible without an inner monologue

RiverRunnerVDB 12 points ago +12 / -0

Yeah, it is such a foreign concept to me that these people must not understand what “inner monologue” means and/or are intentionally misinterpreting the idea to score virtue points.

Who the fuck doesn’t think to themselves? If there really are people out there that lack that capability then they really do have something seriously wrong with themselves.

I remember in elementary school (went to a private christian school) we had a discussion about what happens once you kill your conscious. Everyone is born with one supposedly, but if you continue to ignore it/suppress it, you will stop hearing it. Doing so more or less kills a part of your humanity, and you become more primal, like some feral animal. Or I suppose in this case the gloating NPC's.

this is a very interesting topic that can be linked to different disciplinary fields. first, there's the operant conditioning aspect of it; if Jim follows rules, he is rewarded, so he follows rules, even if the rules oppose his inner monologue, henceforth his inner monologue is devalued in his mind since it doesn't match whatever gets rewarded. this is very common with men i speak with and in myself at one point— very few people in western society are congruent with their thoughts. there's a lack of personal power.

the second idea here is the feral animal aspect. the rogan interview actually helped me piece this idea i had floating around in my head together. mass formation psychosis is a beautiful way of putting it. we live in a confusing fucking world; i was born in a hospital, driven home in a motor vehicle on roads to a house made of concrete only for my parents to call their parents who were over 1000+ miles away so they could see me, as a baby. all in all, the technology involved is mind blowing but, take a step back and appreciate the magical aspect of it. nobody knows how all this works, which introduces helplessness. mass formation psychosis is an amazing mental model— there is this introduced chaos due to lack of understanding of one's surroundings. Why? Because it's fucking impossible to understand how all this technology works; nobody taught me when i was in elementary school how they built the roads, how the internet works, or how cars work.

So... daddy government/rule makers come along and introduce rules while telling and conditioning people into believing they have their best interests at heart. "get an oil change every 10,000 miles", "never eat food left out more than 3 hours because the FDA says so". The world is too confusing for critical thought so many people resign to this and take a chance by following this leader. The "right" way to do it is to teach children that the world is confusing and dangerous; there is no right way to do things, you have to figure it out as you go through trial and error and critical thought. Of course, this doesn't feel good so it never passes the cutting room floor.

to bring this all back to your comment, the idea of consciousness seems to have a bit of christian moral mumbo jumbo but i do actually agree with parts of it on a practical basis. society does create feral animals through the methods i outlined above. my rhetorical question would be is religion exempt from the same accusation?

bonus quote that i like and is relevant:

"For of course some sort of general idea they must have, if they were to do their work intelligently–though as little of one, if they were to be good and happy members of society, as possible. For particulars, as every one knows, make for virture and happiness; generalities are intellectually necessary evils. Not philosophers but fretsawyers and stamp collectors compose the backbone of society"

ripley88 12 points ago +12 / -0

I still dont get this. What happens in there brains? Like, they must have inner thoughts, even if it's stuff like "I gotta go get milk before I make dinner" or something, right? So basically no inner monologue means their only thoughts must revolve around their most basic needs, almost like a dog; "Food, food, territory, sex, food, territory territory"? Or maybe not; maybe their thoughts are so amorphous the only time language is attached to them is when they speak.

I also dont get how they dont get that it's my voice I'm hearing in my head.

I wonder how they comprehend what they read. When I read something, I hear the words in my head like my inner monologue is reading it to me out loud. What's it like for them?

8
ripley88 8 points ago +8 / -0

You think they read? 😋

I think it might be time for a deep dive into whatever research was done on this to get an idea of what they mean.

I remember when the article first dropped, Tim Pool covered it on his podcast and he said something like "I can think in words and pictures." and I was thinking "you mean you have an imagination? Doesn't everyone have an imagination?" I know some people have no imagination in the sense they aren't creative, but everyone must be able to project themselves into the future and make decisions for themselves based on mental images of how their lives could improve. I think it's the baseline of being able to think in 3D space, like with those IQ questions that ask you to pick which diagram will fold into a specific cube. (Which I'm not good at, but I can actually try because I can see the image in my head.) I mean, we're not talking about synesthesia ffs. The most disturbing thing about it is that it makes me doubt my own mind and how it works because it's so hard to conceive of people who don't have an inner monologue or can't think in images.

Maybe I'm wrong...

Frog_Anne 3 points ago +3 / -0

I just read several articles, but I still don't understand this. It sounds like "inner monologue" is just...thinking? How do people think without words and images? I could see a baby might think this way, because they only know sensations and wants, but once you know words and images and then sentences, that's how you think. You need language to think. How else would you think and what you think about without words and pictures?

They don't understand it. Their moral beliefs are literally held by financial gain and they don't understand any other point of view.

becky21k1 14 points ago +15 / -1

The liberal's base goal is to always feel happy and superior. challenging their views, making them think. the possibility they could be wrong is deeply upsetting to them, so upsetting that nothing is beneath their purview in effort to silence those things. It's a moral superiority complex, they believe their views are the only correct ones and no other should exist, but it stems from the need to always be happy - by always being "right" and being the "righteous" one.

Most of the time this is terminal, there's no fix for it, it should have been beaten out of them as children and wasn't.

It's incredibly easy to be "right."

A good liberal (rare) will listen to the other side and be able to talk about what they believe without REEing. A normal liberal can't handle it emotionally to listen to a different opinion and will get to REEing in short order to end the conversation.

Tyrone_biggums 8 points ago +8 / -0

A strategy is to attack them from the left. It can break their brains. Like noting that lockdowns cause starvation of destitute children and most hurt working class people, or that masks harm the developing psyches of children (“what kind of sick society is willing to sacrifice the welfare of its children for the most senior members of society?”), or, “why are you cheering on the police arresting people for the crime of associating together?” (never forget they actually did cheer for this).

Jimmyprawns 7 points ago +7 / -0

There was a line at the end of the miniseries Chernobyl about how they were living in a society where the children must die to save their mothers. The implication being that it was really messed up and wrong to be that way.

And yet here were are, watching the bad part of the boomer and older batch sacrificing the future and present of all who are coming up behind them, not just to preserve themselves but to preserve their place in society as rulers and kingmakers. Even if only for another 5 years or even just one. God forbid the world around them should be allowed to carry on while they, the at risk people, quarantined and gave up their place in society. Oh no, everyone else, everyone under 65 must have their lives halted and potentially never restarted, simply to prevent the elder rulers from being inconvenienced. See Nancy Pelosi for only one of many examples.

I've seen a massive rift form amongst oler folks. Those willing to make sacrifices and accept risks for the sake of the young. Including the young who aren't even their own. "Oh quit worrying about it and bring my grandkids over. I don't care about all that, I want to see them." Those are the folks with love in their hearts, and a courage worth emulating.

In the other camp, it's Vax passes and rona tests if you want a seat at the table. Better yet, keep the kids away from me. And all the kids are told that failure to be a good little sacrifice, a worthy sacrifice, is going to kill grandma. Some clans soothe their conscience with massive doses of hypocrisy and scapegoating. The injections and mask rules grant them moral immunity, even if they do fuck all about physical health threats. Its twisted, it's wrong, and these twisted fucks wear it like a badge of honor.

(On the subject of chernobyl, it's a good line and fits what was going on in the movie, but that's not how radiation poisoning works. The fetus is far more sensitive to such things than the mother. A dead fetus doesn't mean all the bad went to the baby and saved the mother. It means the mothers body was able to take it but the developing baby wasnt. The soviet government told a lot of lies to expecting mothers who'd gotten radiation doses during the early days of that disaster. The state was actively encouraging abortions to lesson its future obligation to an expected larger number of special needs kids. Many were also adopted out of the country for similarly cynical reasons. That state did sacrifice its young, just not the way the movie implied. Well, they pretty much had the right idea about the 18-25 year olds they ordered to shovel all that shit off of the roof.)

Never underestimate the power of an oral tradition. The gun culture in the US was hit especially hard back in the 90s. Traditionally, people learned about guns from grandpa and dad. People who carried them 'in the war.' That got interrupted and largely lost by the first wave of family dissintegration. What I have found most encouraging though is the new gun cultures ability and ongoing efforts to fill that gap and rediscover things long lost. It gives me a glimmer of hope regarding the possible resilience and rediscovery that may come after all that has been done in the name of Rona.

They are using massive amounts of self serving bias to try and cover up their evil. They know very well why he is doing it but if they admit his reasons as valid which they certainly are, they will also have to admit their reasons are evil, which they are. People will go to great lengths to try and convince themselves that they are the good guys even if it means believing lies and blaming innocent people.

12
gunteh 12 points ago +12 / -0

I feel like that’s why the mass psychosis works so well, the first part of grooming someone into staying in psychosis is to steal their innocence and force them into a morally compromising situation. Once they’re compromised, use the leverage to force more atrocities to be committed.

Jimmyprawns 6 points ago +6 / -0

Well put, they've been playing it just like a pimp.

Jordan Peterson demonstrated a deceptively simple way out when he came out and said he made a mistake when he complied in hopes it would get people to leave him alone. It made him a bigger man to accept he was small and imperfect during a moment of weakness. A move that is far more difficult than it looks. Too many haven chosen the easier path of doubling down on corrupted decision making processes and preserving, at least the appearance of, their innocence and perfection. See Scott adams.

Another tactic the rona nazis have stolen, and this time from the mob: Don't put a gun to someone's head and order them. Some will be dumb enough to say no anyway. And all it takes is a couple of bodies to get any crew in over its head. Instead, eliminate the alternatives. If you do it right, you'll have them thinking they did it all on their own. Of course, they fucked up and made it look an awful lot like they were putting guns to our heads. And a lot of us dummies told them to fuck off. Those who cowed because they thought they had no choice are particularly angry at those who recognized the existence of an alternative and sidestepped a trap others dove headlong into.

I susbscribe to this Youtube channel called "Woke Preacher Clips". Its short clips of all these pastors or other religous leaders pushing woke bullshit. Anyway, I remember one preacher talking about nurses and other people quitting their jobs instead of getting the vaccine. He was absolutely incredulous, that people would in his words "give up money instead of getting a shot".

I thought to myself that money is how the globalists contol people and I also thought, a pastor that allows money to control him, is focused on the here and now instead of the after life, which means he should not be a pastor.

a pastor that allows money to control him

Worshiping Mammon is a bitch. Jesus said you can only have one master, so if you follow Mammon you DON'T follow God. But most of these "woke" fucks were bought out by their Synagogue of Satan masters to say whatever they wanted anyway. So they were damned in many ways... It's also the reason why rich people have such a hard time believing. Not because they are rich, but the mentality of getting rich means putting the worship of money and the power with which it can buy ahead of everything else. That devotion to wealth means it becomes a center point of a persons life and they can't imagine living without it. And hence why it's their god.

If moral agency is part of the condition known as being human.

How About the Rest:

…the accrual of power in this moment. This is why he has to be part of the majority in an event like Covid. He needs to stay close to power bc that is the safest and sets him up optimally to succeed (shallowly speaking—he will be inherently miserable but will cope/ignore it). /6

Jan 1 We can see the results of a society filled with people like (pathological narcissists) this very clearly now. The geographical areas that are more power-obsessed can’t get rid of Covid. They need to virtue signal and form groups and “stay cool” because they’re empty inside /7

Jan 1 for the precise reason that they cannot stand alone, as complete individuals like @P_McCulloughMD

@RobertKennedyJr

@MartinKulldorff

@DrJBhattacharya can do. All of their actions are focused on the short term accrual of status, so they will never realize how to fix their misery./8

Jan 1 Deeper characters like those listed above will achieve the status of greatness over the long term, but they are not motivated by that. It is inherent to greatness not to be motivated by “being great.” The truly great risk everything for a conviction, an idea. /9

Jan 1 The triumph of the conviction creates the happiness, not the achievement of greatness. People are chasing the wrong thing when they chase status for status’ sake. It doesn’t work. It’s the doing hard very things, taking hits, enduring scorn and ridicule and staying upright /10

Jan 1 That makes a person fulfilled. I guarantee the apparent “losers” in the Covid war are happier than the apparent “winners.” So this Atlantic writer of whom Malone speaks is hopelessly lost. He will live a shallow life chasing shiny things and be forgotten. /11

Jan 1 Malone may lose the battle, maybe even the war, but he will know at the end of the day that he did so “daring greatly.” He’s actually doing things, taking risks, throwing punches in the arena. He’s LIVING. He’s FREE. No one defines him but himself. /12 Tip Stacey Rudin @stacey_rudin · Jan 1 That’s what we all get, we anti-lockdowners. We are still free. If we lose this fight & along with it our freedom, well, at least we haven’t given it up without a fight. They can never take away our ability to look ourselves in the mirror and know that we tried. /13

Jan 1 There’s a spiritual chasm between Malone and his Atlantic detractor (I am purposefully not linking). That chasm is dictating the global Covid disaster. Until people re-examine their misplaced trust & motivations behind their own actions (status? comfort?) we remain stuck. /end

I always hated the argument of the left wondering why we don’t vote in our own interest. As if my interest is about receiving free things in exchange for my freedom.

Jimmyprawns 4 points ago +4 / -0

Especially since once you're in the cage, it's up to someone else to ensure you stay fed, fat and safe. And these corrupt idiots can't even be trusted with a potted plant. Why should I trust them with the care and feeding of a human, especially when that human is me or someone I care about? But yeah, the way you avoid the trap is to reject even a credible promise of being well cared for. You can't con an honest man, because every con starts with the promise of getting something for nothing. In the end the mark looses everything and gains nothing. Pay your own way and do your own work. Much much safer that way.

so for these people, when someone else does something, anything, they must be doing it because they are getting something out of it - thus the journalists refusal to accept what Malone was saying, and her friends inability to "comprehend the moral imperative"

This is a beautiful post. Actually implying that they think everything that's said is only said because of money

When you sell your soul you assume everyone else is a sellout like you.

They need that to be the narrative.

There is a small caveat w/respect to Malone. Some could say that, since he was one of the inventors who's invention got stolen from him, he is angry about not making money off of it and so is getting some sort of revenge.

What amazes me is how people can, with clear and open minds, consider any of their BS "mainstream". That right there makes me question how far some of thought through what is going on in America.

Wall Street is not Main Street. Main Street is main stream - of which none of the current punditry has any real connection to. They do not live the same lifestyle nor share the same concerns as the common person. The Democrats have completely abandoned them for their fringe coalition, and dependents.

Social media products do not represent main stream. They data mine it, sure. They try to force it to behave as they wish, obviously. They groom children on an industrial scale. They participate in the wholesale violation of individual human rights as a routine.

"mainstream"

Propagandized.

It’s not selfless, against his interests nor the greater good. It’s long term good vs feeding demons. It’s heroic. It’s fighting the gorgon.

They’d rather believe the people who have everything to gain from us taking these vaccines!

It reminds me when Bush though he could just up the reward continuously and get an al Queda insider to turn on bin laden. Could understand why they hadn't already. The drunkard cokehead gay frat train bottom chimp whore that is bush jr simply couldn't understand the concept of loyalty and not having a price for commiting any act. (or any act that he wouldn't perform for that matter)

1 Peter 4:4 (NLT) Of course, your former friends are surprised when you no longer plunge into the flood of wild and destructive things they do. So they slander you.

Jeremiah 7:27 (ESV) “So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you. You shall call to them, but they will not answer you.

“Tell them all this, but do not expect them to listen. Shout out your warnings, but do not expect them to respond. Say to them, ‘This is the nation whose people will not obey the Lord their God and who refuse to be taught. Truth has vanished from among them; it is no longer heard on their lips.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:27-28‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Ezekiel 2:5-7 (NLT) 5 And whether they listen or refuse to listen--for remember, they are rebels--at least they will know they have had a prophet among them. 6 “Son of man, do not fear them or their words. Don’t be afraid even though their threats surround you like nettles and briers and stinging scorpions. Do not be dismayed by their dark scowls, even though they are rebels. 7 You must give them my messages whether they listen or not. But they won’t listen, for they are completely rebellious!

Ezekiel 2:8 (NLT) Son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not join them in their rebellion. Open your mouth, and eat what I give you.” (Ezekiel 2:10 (NLT) which he unrolled. And I saw that both sides were covered with funeral songs, words of sorrow, and pronouncements of doom.)

Ezekiel 3:11 (ESV) And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,’ whether they hear or refuse to hear.”

I would say that this is the result of their moral narrowness and egocentricism. Richard Landes wrote (about the Left) about Cognitive Egocentricism: namely, that liberals assume that everyone else shares their moral values and so it must be perverseness or corruption when someone disagrees.

The greater good is his own self interest. This is actually a lost piece of the puzzle that everyone on every side doesn't get anymore. Individualism requires responsibility to maintain that freedom of individuality.

No, the question exists to implant an answer: Malone is a paid shill. The objective of the question is the destroy credibility. The interviewer knew what he was doing. He is not confused.

They hate you, and want you dead.

It's weird they think the side that's not making money off of vaccines and lockdowns is being paid by somebody.

There was this liberal guy I know who cannot understand for the life of him how somebody can do something that isn't in their own best interest, but because it's the right thing to do.

He likened this to black people voting for Republicans. He said it's against their best interest to vote Republican, cannot understand it at all.

You can't expect a soulless puppet to have morality.
