    Was that before or after you tried to reach her?
    Defense against insanity is the course of wisdom.
    I don't hide behind layers and layers of nonsensical pseudo-profound prose.
    I think I've mentioned projection to you before.
    The curious thing is, the nice girl in me would actually like to help you.
    She just doesn't dance so well.

    Well, Mutual Funds, as you know Jack, are in trouble these days.

    But we know we can rely upon you to bail us out if we get into trouble.

    Naturally. Well, we'll see how the next year or so goes.

    Tis a pity.
    Such a pretty kitty.

    So the inner fascist called, by Jung the animus, projects itself onto an outer fascist.

    And the irony is that Carl Gustave Jung was a free and enthusiastic fascist himself.

    But most of all he wasn't a nice girl.

    So he is absolutely perfect on which to project the inner fascist, the animus. In fact Jung was perfect because he was a fascist and the father of MBTI.

    And so the bad part of the girl can be enjoyed and denied.

    And she remains in her own mind a nice girl.

    So every nice girl loves a fascist.

    And fascists love nice girls for exactly the opposite reason.


    A Personal Note -

    Naturally I want to be loved by a nice girl, so I do my best to at least look like a fascist.

    My avatar is a mountain lion - a fascist image if ever there was one.

    I present myself as a lone rebel fighting impossible odds - a kind of superman fascist.

    When they ask my name at Starbucks, I always say, "Superman". The nice girls love it, and when my coffee is ready, they call out my name, "Superman", so loudly, everyone in Starbucks looks up.

    But being a fascist is not easy, nor is it meant to be. But I do it for love.

    Do you love me?
    Victor, what you wrote reminds me so much of something Robert Johnson, the psychologist who wrote several books on the Jungian idea of the shadow, including Amazon.com: Owning Your Own Shadow: Understanding the Dark Side of the Psyche: Robert A. Johnson: Books said. He was talking about our anima or animus embodying the aspects of us that we have chosen to relegate to our shadow selves because expressing them in modern day society is thought to be inappropriate, and about how it's better to live as a whole person instead of just living out our socially-acceptable traits. He describes it as a balancing act whereby the more aware you become of what's in your shadow, the better you can incorporate it in healthy ways into your everyday "socially acceptable" personality. So this can mean finding ways of expressing the shadow symbolically or through actions that don't do anybody any harm. It seems to me that identifying with the mountain lion symbol is a very healthy way of expressing a lot of traits, both scary and desirable. When I think of mountain lions, I know they are deadly and and carniverous, and yet also strong, agile and resourceful, and fierce protectors of their young. (and as far as animal symbols are concerned, people who can only relate to tame housepets are just as one-sided as people who can only relate to fierce carnivores.)

    Your post also reminds me of Robert Bly's book on the shadow - if you haven't read it already, you would totally appreciate it. Amazon.com: A Little Book on the Human Shadow: Robert Bly: Books

    From what I've read of your posts, you don't strike me as being very fascist in the way I think of that word (I think of "fascists" as being thoughtless, militaristic, intolerant, prejudicial, rule-making and enforcing, etc, but maybe you had something else in mind, or maybe you're just saying that you know you could exhibit some of these traits but that because you are aware of them, you can choose how and when to express them in ways that don't hurt others). At any rate, it looks to me as though you're finding playful ways of expressing what you call your fascist side, and it's not hurting anyone.
