<quoted text>The Violent Disorder of Our Public Mind
Freud knew as much when he asked at the conclusion of Civilization and its Discontents:
… would not the diagnosis be justified that many systems of civilization - or epochs of it - possibly even the whole of humanity - have become "neurotic" under the pressure of civilizing trends?
Nevertheless, it is true that in our time the term "insanity" tends to refer to a private malady. We lack an appropriate term for disorders of the public mind for the fundamental reason that we lack any notion of the "public mind" itself. And the reason for this disappearance is not that the phenomenon itself has ceased to exist but that public consciousness has become so fragmented and atomic that this collective form of consciousness tends to lack self-awareness. But this dissolution is itself the very form of public consciousness that is so important for us to grasp.

I'm still reading this article. It's fascinating, especially the part about capitalism and democracy being contradictory ideas.

Thanks for sharing this.

Yet, it is you that is hiding who you are to post this like a coward.

One hardly needs to speak lowly of you to show what you really are.

Good point. I'm a bit shocked to be honest.
I do think Dp is an intelligent guy and although I don't think he has made a good enough argument to prove his point, it's interesting that the right had to have someone from the left just to make an intelligent argument. LOL
LOL! Funny, X.

Truth is I don't believe the majority of these right-wing posters read all of DP's posts let alone understand them.

They simply think they've found someone who will join forces with them against the liberals on this issue. That's all they ever care about really--not quality, but quantity. They'll use just about anyone to that end. I've seen it happen time and time again.

They're much like little children vying for the biggest team, no matter how incompetent it is. LOL!

Who's humiliated?

I would think a coward like you would feel humiliated if you had any human feelings or integrity at all, but cowards have no conscience I guess.

No one has been hung out to dry. Crawl back under your rock, troll.

It is you who is being selfish. I speak up for homosexuals for the same reason that I would speak up for the rights of your child and your wife.
I've seen Jaxxon do the same. The reality here is that you don't value his rights as a citizen to challenge the status quo, because he is homosexual and you don't agree with his lifestyle.
Now, who is being, selfish?
I am being selfish. I've seen how the right will take an issue like gay marriage and use the people's deeply held beliefs and the anonymity of the voting booth to gain control of the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. If the court tells the feds that DOMA is unconstitutional then the republicans will gain control and amend the constitution and no state will issue a marriage license to same sex couples. The moral majority is good at getting their flock to the polls when they truly believe in the issue. They would prefer to cut federal benefits to everyone rather than to give anything to a homosexual.

Gun control, redistribution of wealth, Social medicine, taxpayer funded abortions and same sex marriage is going to send the liberal democrats away just as they get the economy under control and that good economy will not help them one little bit. Just ask Al Gore.

No ad-libs please. When ALL of you post links and the headline, no ad-libs.
What? I don't make the rules! I know, but it makes for honest reporting......you know, just the facts. I apologize for insinuating that you lied. Should have chosen my words better. Maybe exaggerate would have been a better choice.
Pre-judgement no matter who the accused may be is bad. Even if I don't like the AB, or I do. We should wait til all the facts are in. It may turn out totally something different.

I know you posted this to Jack, but I just wanted to point out, just look at that poster Reality.
When I started asking her some hard questions her she had no answer.
Why? Because, everything she posts here is regurgitated rhetoric that she absorbs on some right wing media site.
Her entire ideology comes from the mouths of buffoons and when I asked her a question that had not been covered by taught rhetoric she had no answer.
Then, you saw what happened. Both Jaxx and I asked questions to which she just deflected and ran away.
Hmmmmm, well I'm afraid I didn't follow every post of that discussion, X.

But when I see the name "Reality" I tend to skip those posts. When she/he accused me of having "Grandeurs of Illusions," I knew I just couldn't stand any more stupidity. I have a low threshold for ignorance.

But I did notice the "regurgitated rhetoric" when I was wasting my time posting to that person.

Very true. There is a definite sense of desperation in every single on of these people's posts. It's obvious that they realize that their ideology is in danger. Intelligent and informed people just do not fall for the same fear tactics of the past which is how much the right was able to control and acquire much of their support.
Those times are over. Sometimes I feel like their resistance to change is more about pure selfishness and stubbornness and less about what they believe in. When I look at the tactics that they resort to, it makes you wonder about why anyone believes anything they say.

Local retired miners, supporters rally in Charleston against Patriot

Dressed as one in camouflage, they went to add their voices to the thousands who converged downtown in the capital to protest Patriot Coal’s desire to shed $1.6 billion in pension and health care benefits through Chapter 11 bankruptcy, leaving miners and their families without.

You didn't miss much. Just the typical deflection when I started asking questions that challenged what she was posting.

I'm tempted to post every answer and ever question she deflected just to really put her on the spot but I'm too lazy to do so. lol
