Not too long ago I mentioned the connection between excessive neuroticism and left-wing politics. In passing I discussed that the right-wing had its personal issues, main a number of of you to ask what these have been.
The basic response can be to accuse (credit score?) conservatives as being low in empathy. Whether or not or not you agree traditionally, that reply doesn’t appear to me to be “of the second.” As an alternative, I see the newer right-wing thinkers as falling into a special camp. The pathology I observe most regularly and most intensely is a form of reckless anger, directed at some semi-imaginary, hypostatized notion of “elites.” In an virtually Pavlovian style, you’ll be able to pump up this group by placing out some “bait” about “the elites” and seeing the resentment fly. To be clear, as with the left-wing, this pathology doesn’t must imply the right-wing thinkers are flawed on the problems themselves. In spite of everything, possibly Lab Leak did certainly occur, or no matter different declare you may want to debate. However when one among these delicate matters comes up, sure right-wing thinkers do usually reply to it pathologically and with an extra of emotion. Born out of their sense of their very own failures, they are often the true snowflakes.
You may see this within the feedback part of MR each single day. Possibly even at the moment. No shock that the neurotic left-wingers will discover this and be disturbed by it!
