SJW Millennials and Severe Personality Disorders March 8, 2017

Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, asshatery, demographics, disaster, error, family, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, rank stupidity, Revolution, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.

What is it Michael Savage has said for years?  That liberalism is a mental disorder?  That might be a bit broad and harsh, but for the hardcore social justice warrior millennials, their brittle, unhinged behavior may have been an inevitable outcome of their upbringing in daycare centers and the rare overinvolvement of guilt-ridden helicopter parents.  So says this author I’ve never heard of, whose conclusions I agree with so of course he must be right (teasing, this actually is important and parallels a recent Paul Joseph Watson video I’ll include at the bottom):

If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.

All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.

Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).

Of course, not every SJW has a personality condition, but sufferers from High Conflict disorders are often drawn to extreme beliefs and behaviors under the illusion that they are acting politically.

A 2016 UK survey found that, since 1990, rates of depression and anxiety among the young have increased by 70%, while the American Counseling Association has reported a “rising tide of personality disorders among millennials.”

Goodness.  What could have caused this generation-wide descent into self-reinforcing mental disorder?

Part 1:

The majority of millennial children (now aged 18-34) had two working parents; this was partly an ideological project of feminism and partly economic necessity. The downside was the damage done by daycare, services for which grew by 250% between the 1970s and ;90s (see Laura Perrins’ work on psychological trauma caused by daycare). According to Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Thesis, babies require two years of intimate attention to enable them to form the caregiver-child bond essential for secure ego formation. Any disturbance of this process will “predispose the children to respond in an anti-social way to later stresses.”

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has found:

Children in full-time day care were close to three times more likely to show behavior problems than those cared for by their mothers at home.

The more time in child care of any kind or quality, the more aggressive the child.

The result is young people who, a decade and a half after daycare, scream at the parent/State for not protecting them sufficiently. It is no coincidence that “safe spaces” resemble daycare centers.

Unfortunately, “safe spaces” enforce the distressed person’s fear of the world, trapping them in their original trauma within a psychological frame of permanent and inescapable victimhood.

Part 2:

Faced with histrionic students, university staff end up behaving like “Helicopter Parents”: those largely absent, full-time working parents who overcompensated by flying in to fuss over their child. Attempting to assuage parental guilt, one of the tools they used was “positive parenting” — a philosophy created by social Progressives.

Parents were taught to not scold or punish, and instead to use “positive reinforcement” in an attempt to raise their children with “high self-esteem.” This ideology also became fashionable within an increasingly progressive school system that awarded children prizes for “non-competitive sports” and for merely taking part in school activities……..

……..A false picture of the world and a vastly inflated sense of self-importance did not compensate for the foundational trauma of parental neglect. Instead, as Dr. Jean Twenge has explained, Positive Parenting created young people with a “narcissistic wound” for whom the real world would be perceived as a threat to self-worth. [And a mystery they are wholly unable to navigate, let alone unravel]

Sooo…..insecure, uneducated, brittle narcissists with delusions of grandeur.

Well, that should bode well for the future.

My boss, who is within a year or two of my own supremely awesome Gen X age (no daycare for me, just a latch key kid from age 7, but I did get that all-important two years of cuddling), and I were discussing the prospects of hiring a college intern this summer.  He was really wary of hiring a millennial.  I gave him my experience – some are perfectly normal, awesome go-getter kids with a lot of motivation.  I tend to imagine anyone successfully navigating engineering school cannot be entirely lost in infantile narcissism, but who knows?!  We’ll find out this June.  He says he’ll can ’em in a week if they have any attitude.

Good boss.

Seriously, the cultural and economic ramifications of this ignored-yet-coddled generation are shaping up to be mammoth.  Largely children of baby boomers, they may turn out to be even more destructive than their parents.  Millennials are shaping up to be extremely marriage- and child-adverse.  They prefer apartments, and high-rise apartments at that, to single family homes.  They want to live in hip urban centers, and nearly as many would rather use Uber than own their own car.  The economic portents of those three factors alone are enormously negative.  Whether they ever marry or not, it appears millennials will have even fewer kids (on average, we’re talking in the broadest sweeps) than any preceding generation.  The US appears poised to start down the path of final demographic decline that Europe began 40-50 years ago.

But as I’ve said many times before, it is the kids who are the ultimate, most suffering victims of the great cultural marxist consumption of our culture.  These kids didn’t choose to be raised by people making $7 an hour or indoctrinated into the cult of narcissistic self-esteem.  They are as much victims as anyone, the parents visiting their own sins upon their children.  Sadly, each proceeding generation has grown worse and worse.  I shudder to imagine what the few kids of the millennials will turn out as.   Maybe a large enough percentage will be sane homeschoolers living in rural areas/the exurbs to start to turn things around.

Probably don’t quite have the numbers  yet.

Is this post too much like the fave of leftists from a few years ago, the “studies reveal all conservatives are stupid” kind?  Or is it OK in this case BECAUSE IT’S TRUE!

I own a small pest control franchise business (15 employees). More than half of my employees are millennial (as you found out, at 35 I’m right on the edge myself but I think my upbringing, college and military careers tip the scales on the right side of the line). The good ones are out there, but you have to be willing to invest time in them. If they didn’t learn hard work at home, you have to be able to do it. They need mentors (professional and personal) and bosses. It’s going to be different – but can be very rewarding. I’ve had some insufferable duds but the group I have now is doing very well.

I’ll tell you the good ones are going to go far, there will be a huge difference between happy and/or successful versus miserable and/or unsuccessful. Hopefully your intern is one of the diamonds.

As a Millennial myself, I have to somewhat defend my generation here. Are many of us incredibly stupid leftist snowflakes? Sadly, yes. However, studies of Millennials typically show that my generation is more solidly pro-life and anti-divorce than the Gen X’ers or the despicable Boomers. Soon the biological solution will take the last of the Boomers and end their plague upon the Earth they have unleashed since the 60s. The problem that most employers have with Millennials (the ones of us that are sane and willing to work instead of being narcissistic morons) is that we have a different work ethic. I have worked as an inter-generational teammate development adviser for two major banks in addition to my usual work. The work strategies that the different generations have are vastly different. Millennials, as a whole, do not want to work for a company and invest their time and energy if they cannot see how what they do is beneficial for their community/people/etc. “We” care very much about the whys of our jobs, and in working in a more collaborative environment. Just telling a Millennial to do something and expect it to be done because you said so will only work for so long. At some point the resistance will begin if they cannot see and understand why they are doing the work and why its being done in that manner. Love it or hate it, that’s just on average how we work. Which is why companies like Google and Apple are thriving, and more traditional industries that are molded on the Boomer way of work (for a perfect case in point, see Sears/K-Mart) are failing.

On the other hand, there are far too many precious snowflakes in my generation who need a hard dose of reality. I think it was Irving Kristol who said a conservative is nothing more than a liberal who was mugged by reality. If the future is as harsh as it seems like it will be, perhaps we shall have many more conservative converts in the future. Or a civil war. One of the two.

Anyway, I’ll get off my generational soap-box now. By the way, I love your blog, I read it every day and always recommend it to everyone I can.

Why are boomers “dispicable”?

Most of us grew up, went to college or like me went right into the workforce from hugh school. We started at the bottom, learned or taught ourselves by doing, competed for promotions, went to night classes paying for college ourselves when we could finally afford it (not parents or loans), competed for more promotions or competed in the open market for jobs that would grow our experience and resume.

We listened, we watched, we read we LEARNED and as we became middle management we continued to educate ourselves for graduate credits, again as we could afford it!

We raised families or helped to raise kids for family and friends who had lost spouceses, there jobs or became sick due to unrealized health dangers (smoking, chemicals on the job or off, poor nutrition as children need the better nutrition, and much more). We had our life changed radically by those who CLAIMED to know better than us: birth control, abortion, militant interest group rights, marriage isn’t important, divorce won’t hurt your children or children don’t need a mother at home, total strangers in child care situations are just as good, and so much more that was nothing but lies!

Now we are on social security–much less than we expected. We ran departments at a profit now all we’re sitable for is as a greeter at Walmart or checker at the grocery store–at least when the electric goes out we can count change back correctly without machines.

Call us deplorable if it makes YOU feel good, but we’ve paid our dues several times over, we didn’t skip iut on bills, we didn’t complain (protest about every little thing but did for life-changing needs and concerns! We may be “old” to you, but we kniw who we are and will continue to contribute until our dieing day. Then we will pass on to our real reward with the God we’ve loved and served and continue to oray for you in your self-centeredness…

Let’s review for a moment, shall we?

Who were the radicals, feminists, communists, masons, and hippies in the 60s? The Boomers
Who led the fight for the pill? The Boomers
Who led the fight to make widespread divorce? The Boomers
Who led the Great Society entitlement explosion? The Boomers
Who were the main proponents and users of abortion? The Boomers
Who now leads the corrupt banks that ruined the economy? The Boomers
Who now leads the corrupt agencies of the government which has been used to destroy this country? The Boomers
Who has spent the country into oblivion and saddled their grandchildren with debt they will never be able to repay? The Boomers
Who continues to heap more debt on that pile and demand even more entitlements? The Boomers
Who murdered most of their children, and thereby the taxpaying future workforce? The Boomers
Who demands that taxes be raised on the young to pay for their so called entitlements and then complain every year when they greedily want an even higher raise in payments? The Boomers
Who legalized gay marriage? The Boomers
Who legalized reverse racism, otherwise known as affirmative action? The Boomers
Who runs the courts who have crammed Obamacare and its associated horrors down our throats? The Boomers
Who created an economy based upon greed and materialism? The Boomers
Who were the hypocrites who protested against the “unwinnable” Vietnam war but then started unwinnable wars that the young had to go and fight in Iraq and Afghanistan? The Boomers
Who refuse to do what every preceding generation has done and leave the workforce when they are older and let younger people who have new families to support move up the ladder because they feel like they have a right to work until they die? The Boomers
Who enthusiastically promoted the “Spirit of Vatican II” and destroyed the Church? The Boomers
Who has ruined the family, the fabric of society? The Boomers
Who has let in millions of Muslims into the West, and left us vulnerable to being slaughtered wherever we go? The Boomers

The list goes on and on and on. But please, tell me again about how wonderful the Boomers are and how much they have helped this world become a better place. Our grandparents must be ashamed to see that after all the fighting and hardships they went through in two world wars and the great depression their spoiled children messed it all up so much.

Amen! Fr. Chad Ripperger “rips” (hehe) apart the Baby Boomer Generation in his Generational Spirits video. Granted, Gex X, the millenials and even the so called “greatest generation” (not) got called on the carpet, too. But yes, the Boomers are a mess and this world will begin to be a much better place when Our Lord finally brings them home for judgement. We have A LOT of cleaning up to do. God bless~

Cold War Baby - March 11, 2017

Ummm… if you feel the “need” to defend “your” generation and ask people not to paint you all with a broad brush, I think you need to grant the same courtesy to other generations. I was born in 1962 and am technically considered a “Boomer.” However I was a little kid during the sixties and my upbringing was conservative Catholic and completely non-Hippy. I’m glad your generation pro-life, but that is due to the fact that generations before you in the not-so-po-life times were willing to have kids in the face of more societal pressure than you face. It IS a lot easier to be pro-life today than it was back in the day. I think “your” generation tends to have more of a weakness toward LGBT / transgender — sort of like there was a “weakness” toward pro-choice when I was younger. In my day, LGBT / transgender would never have been taken “seriously” like it is today — it would never have been tolerated. As for not wanting to do work for which you do not see the immediate pay-off — that is a very shorted-sighted, immature and materialistic view of life and reality and shows an incredibly low level of respect for your superiors and those who have more experience than you. Do you apply this outlook to your faith life ? If you live the Catholic faith, you are guaranteed not to see the complete pay-off in this life. I’m not surprised “your” generation is abandoning Christianity in record numbers.

Excuse me – the following is my original comment on a completely unrelated topic, before I chose to reply to FL_Catholic. BTW I hope you all turn out as great as your generation thinks you are ; )

“public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting” — Seriously ? I had a friend in grad school at UT who did her PhD in Art History. She focused on the Mayans, although her real love was Native North Americans. This quote sounds like something she would relate about what she was working on.

gmcassel, I’m Generation X and yes, a whole lot the Boomers were despicable and the reason why the Millenials are so pathetic is due to they way they and we Xers were raised. Sorry.

5. Amillennial - March 15, 2017

As a Gen X’er who converted to the Holy Faith with great passion, I did all that I knew to do in order bring up a child in the same. I am now without my millennial who has indeed succumbed to the decadent culture these ‘boomers’ helped to bring about. No generation is without fault but I find it very telling that both the millennial and their boomer grandparents are often in very good company with each other morally speaking, that is to say, both appear to be very much without them. My two worthless fiat dollars…
