Leftoid Prime Jonathan Chait is feeling kind of nervous about the intensity and target acquisition algorithm of the witch hunts that his Social Justice Wanker allies have been up to these last few
centuries decades years. Ross Douthat responded in a gentlemanly manner (and that is why he will always fail), and Steverino Sailerino detailed the intramural derailment on his blog.
The liberal elite are beginning the phase of cultural decline where they eat each other after having achieved total victory over their enemies (i.e., normal people). It would all be a humorous sideshow if the stakes weren’t so high and marginal realtalkers weren’t losing their livelihoods to mobs of screeching idiots.
Anyhow, a commenter at Steve’s, doombuggy, perspicaciously noted:
Sounds like Chait is just bragging that his side is winning.
For all this winning, they are the most unhappy people in history.
Doombuggy, intentionally or not, revealed a deep truth about human nature, particularly human female nature.
Maxim #105: Women, and leftoids, are unhappy when they have no dominant power to whom they can submit.
Leftoids, and women, ARE the dominant power in late stage Western societies. And this makes them very unhappy. That’s because the nature of leftoids, and women, is submission. The joyous capitulation to a dominant man, or a dominant paternal culture, has the paradoxical effect of relieving women and leftoids of that gnawing feeling of unfulfilled yearning to give themselves over to a truly powerful force of nature.
When there are no dominant men, or no dominant culture, to rein in their worst excesses of mind and habit, women and leftoids become unhappy and agitated, like untethered electrons spinning out of valence, naked nuclei violently colliding. This explains why, even in the moment of their absolute victory, leftoids and women wail and ragepout like toddlers throwing temper tantrums. They really never wanted to win. They just wanted to stamp their wee feet as dad sternly admonished and sent them to their rooms.
Now that they’ve won, they cast around for sturdy support, only to find themselves and their despicable loser cohorts flinging feces at each other. Desperate for a father figure to at once obey and resent, they summon the frat boy or redneck southroner golems, but that horse left the barn a long time ago, replaced by fat pigs and sneaky rats.
Leftoids, like women, will stress-test their objects of dominance. They need to know if the dominant society/men they love are as they seem.
Leftoids, like women, will quickly lose respect for their society/lovers if the former are allowed to get away with murder by the latter.
Leftoids, like women, say one thing and desire another.
Leftoids, like women, will get very angry and spiteful if they are given what they claim to want.
Leftoids, like women, will make life miserable for the society/men who supplicate to them.
Leftoids, like women, are contemptuous of a weak society/weak man.
Leftoids, like women, will work ceaselessly to sabotage society/relationships, and will blame anyone but themselves for their treachery.
Leftoids, like women, are incapable of wisely and judiciously exercising power. A few leftoids and women are comfortable wielding real power for the good of their fellowmen and posterity, but most are clumsy tyrants who secretly hate having the role thrust on them. They grow angrier, more spiteful, and more vindictive with each day they are tasked to possess the monarch’s mace.
This is the nub of it: Leftoids are like women because both crave the calming embrace of a strong, dominant, unshakeable lover.
An alpha society as an alpha male.
But we are no longer an alpha society. We are a beta society into which women and leftoids have filled the alpha male vacuum. And they hate the world for it.
Equalism, multikultism, and anti-white prostration have robbed leftoids of happiness just as assuredly as feminism has robbed women of happiness. But they will never realize or accept this. It therefore falls to men, unapologetic men and their patriarchal goodness, to set them right. What leftoids need is what women have always needed:
A strong pimp hand.
Addendum: Douthat asks a rhetorical question in his ChaitFact column:
Is the vocabulary that the contemporary left increasingly uses for this purpose, to condemn arguments instead of answering them — don’t victimblame, don’t slutshame, check your privilege, that’s phobic (whether trans or homo or Islamo or otherwise), that’s denialism — worth embracing and defending?
I have a simple reply to leftoids pulling this indignant condemnation stunt:
“Answer the question.”
Conservatives should try it sometime. If they do, they might find they enjoy the feeling of their testicles dropping.
