Sorry, I think that's declining to accept someone's abuse.

Good point reid, however [off topic...]

"In the Beginning" is the infant, which is surely true for all of us. We are born into the limitless space of infantile omnipotence, and only gradually -- and reluctantly -- awaken to the world of limitation and frustration -- i.e., the world of the parents who actually created and rule over us. Under the best of circumstances, this is a shock to the system, and it it is perhaps not surprising that many adult babies pluck a "mask from the ancient gallery" and banish Mother and Father from the garden in order to preserve their godlike omnipotence.

For the human being, thoughts are not only a problem, but the problem. You might say that tolerating the thought of "no breast" forms the basis of all subsequent thinking. You could also say that the thought of no-breast is specifically the thought that the left cannot tolerate. Therefore, they engage in the project of creating a collective, bountiful, limitless teat known as the State. This benign, omnipotent maternal State is always imbued with fantasy, since the intrusion of reality would spoil the illusion.

The demons of the unconscious "become forces independent of the subjective consciousness which engendered them. They are, in other words, magical creations, for magic is the objectification of that which takes its origin in subjective consciousness." They have a semi-autonomous existence, and are analogous to parasitic entities "nourished by the psychic life of [their] parent." Therefore, to keep the parasite "alive," it requires a constant influx of psychic energy. Again, this is what Obamania is all about, as it is fueled by the projected psychic substance of its Obamaniacal co-creators.

"Occasionally you get onto the forum and try to depress us with your dreary fundamentalist control view of the world. (Children must be seen but not heard etc)"

Ha. I don't mind if you keep inventing stuff about me Peter. You know, as long as it helps with the condition so well described by the good doctor.

hmmm, my 2 lines gets snipped as "off topic", and I guess it was.

I can see the attraction of believing that everyone who who thinks you're wrong is insane.

I think a lot of these [off topic] remarks are individuals expressing their feelings of disempowerment, and passing blame to a convenient group/entity. This is known as "transference" or "projection", when for most people their greatest enemy is themselves and their own errant thought structures. However, for a damaged personality, it feels safer to abdicate responsibility and remain in an immature "victim" state.

Ryan,
In postmodern philosophy, and most of the blogosphere, it is de rigeur to deconstruct the motivations of one's opponents. Perhaps you haven't noticed the prevalence of personal comments around here, usually denigrating Christians. I wouldn't say leftists are insane as such, but many exhibit unhealthy symptoms of anti-Christian, anti-National party paranoia.

fugley

Well ropata, I guess you've just summed up the god deluded...

Now, back to liberals being mentally ill...

It stikes me as odd that those who most seem to oppose liberals are those themselves most prone to menat illness. eg delusions of granduer as in Jim Jones, David Koresh, various Popes and Bishops

Or those who see images - such as those who will worship a wet patch on a wall as an image of god, or who see Mary at certain "shrines" and believe she delivers messages to them.

These people, and their followers are the ones who appear to be menatlly ill.

I am the victim ropata, please view what I have just posted on my blog .

God please give me strength to endure this hurtful attack.Please Lord protect me from such evil.

Of course you can see the attraction, because it's human nature to want to place prejudicial labels onto people who are different. We all do it (including me). It doesn't matter whether you call someone paranoid, depressed or a fundamentalist (or, all three!). The labels serve only to prevent our communication, being founded on our prejudices.

I am a bible-believing Christian. But to place me in a box called "fundamentalist" is to lump me with ideas that not only I have never had, but few, if any Christians at all.

Children must be seen but not heard
Thank you for the terrific illustration, Peter.

Jim Jones was a well known CIA Mind Control Operative and a son of a KKK clansman!

Ian and other friends

I think you know by now that I don't react to any name-calling.

What is more serious is the way that it tends to carve up the threads and make them more difficult to follow.

In particular, there are some very worthwhile contributions to read from serious contributors to our dialogues - but they can be missed because of the digression into name calling.

Daddy 4 is the prime example here. If you added up the number of postings made, versus the number of useful insights, the ratio would be appalling.

Nice sweeping generalization, Fugs - don't suppose you have any actual evidence for this? All the medical evidence points to the fact that normal religious belief is associated with a much lower incidence of mental illness (Int J Psychiatry Med. 2001; 31(1):97-109). I stress normal because schizophrenics display extreme religiosity, but they are not crazy because they are religious but religious because their crazy. In fact neither Jim Jones, nor David Koresh were Christians - both thought they were the messiah, not Jesus.

Jim

Sorry about the italics

Should be ok now.

Jim

Also sorry about the grammar. I meant that Jones and Koresh thought that Jesus was not the messiah because they thought they were the messiah themselves.

I don't know whether they actually claimed to be Jesus!

Great to see that dad4justice@muslim.com has told me off on my blog. He told me to leave PETER , stan and dangermouse alone.

WORK IT OUT FOLKS !!!

And in saying this, you dismiss any disagreement with Christianity or National Party policy as "paranoia".

Can you please give me an example of unparanoid disagreement with Christianity or the National Party?
