    "Leftism" ("Cultural Marxism!!1111") is of course a well poisoning argument.

    A stalinist argument, actually.
    You know, in Soviet Russia - oh the meme - "leftists" were the international socialists/trotzkists tipically promoting a "liberal" vision of the communism and "radicals" were the anarchists.
    They were considered 1) traitors to the revolution of the people 2) terrorists to the state and the party
    And you know, Stalin was a fierce nationalist (not a pure ETHNO-nationalist being a georgian in a slavic culture-dominated world like USSR) and anti-femminist (Stalin was really similar to nowdays Erdogan about the woman societal condition political doctrine).

    So yes: 2020 US Right Winger typical mind is the good old soviet-era useful idiot's one, only with the white/western victimhood complex as a spin/twist/bonus (! )

    How cryptocommie are GOP-voting people.....and the GOP actually knows this really really well.
    More, GOP *loves* this basic level of voters controllability through "smart" buzzword like "leftism" (another being "Black Conservatism" to appeal black people.....in a negging fashion)

    They just published a piece calling for a peaceful separation,


    Iím not ďcrazyĒ talking about these things and my comments in the other thread. Iím just a few months ahead of the mainstream sentiment and what Iím saying will be an open, mainstream topic of discussion this time next year.

    I don't get the "First gay president" meme. Does it have to do with Republicans being batshit twirly eyed stupid enough to think calling Michelle Obama a man is in some way funny but yet they can't see how awful it makes them look to imply that? Anybody with an IQ over forty who can keep drool inside their lip would know that is not only not funny but is a mark against themselves so surely there must be some other thing I'm missing here.

    Do you form your thoughts by pulling words out of raffle drum filled with phrases like "nothingburger", "whataboutism", "confirmation bias" and "reality has a left wing bias"?

    If you think there is not really any relationship between political views and mental illness once you control for every relevant variable, you should ask yourself what it would take for this to be true given the data, because we're not talking about small effects here. if you want to say that this relationship between political views and mental illness should not be used to reject a political view on the ground that many of its proponents are mentally ill, then I completely agree. But don't bend over backward to explain away the data...

    I won't, especially if you are not going to bend over in any direction to explore SCC's own comments on the validity of the cited study above...

    4. The SSC survey is a bad sample to use for this [links between political views and mental illness], not just because itís unrepresentative, but because it might be unrepresentative of different political affiliations in different ways. For example, SSC Marxists really are surprisingly depressed, but maybe the only Marxists who would read an anti-Marxist blog are depressed Marxists looking for things to be miserable and angry about (though see below for some counterevidence).
    While you enjoy your cherries you can practice hitching your horse to the back of the cart. Consider the possibility that leftism isn't caused by mental illness but rather that some depression is the result of more complex thinking and empathy. And maybe some depression isn't a mental illness but just the healthy realization that the fate of the world is presently in the hands of a mad king whose subjects believe that the end to all their woes is to build a fucking WALL.

    To your point:

    Here's the same thing but excluding depression:





    Besides which we shouldn't even need this data. We all already know that people on the fringes are more likely to be crazy.


    Besides which...

    Thank you for that clarifying link. It backs up the only thing I presented which was the data:

    This is accurate only insofar as the result uses the publicly available data I provide. The claim about mental illness was made by Twitter user Philippe Lemoine and not by me. In general, if a third party analyzes SSC survey data, I would prefer that media sources reporting on their analysis attribute it to them, and not to SSC.

    As far as I can tell, Lemoine’s analysis is accurate enough, but needs some clarifications:

    The post says "It's accurate, but here's some rationalization as to possible reasons why".


    Also:

    5. A commenter on Lemoine’s tweet links to this blog post by someone who found the same thing in the General Social Survey. The General Social Survey is much larger and more rigorous than my survey, and there’s no reason to care what my survey has to say when there are GSS results available.

    Thank you for the link. That actually made me more confident in the validity of the information.

    And therein lies the real problem.

    Yes but I'm really really lucky, 100% lucky, so everything is right.
    Speaking of the right side, you can be 100% lackey too!

    Oooops, my bad. The words keep flowing out!

    LOL.

    Of course a mad alt-righter can say (-> SELF-DECLARED) he's a marxist to blame on the marxism. So these statistics are pure bullshit at its finest.

    BUT the really great stuff is that alt-right actually IS marxist-like (you know the Strasser brothers, right? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregor_Strasser / https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_Strasser )
