    I read him as entirely serious but in complete despair of ever enlightening all us dim bulbs.

    It seems that OP is an Agent of Chaos. Ah, the good ol' order vs chaos debate. Can't have one without the other.

    Need more Yin/Yang up in here.


    I'm really starting to like Victor. :Gives Vic a big hug: :Injects a neurotransmitter into Vic's neck and starts broadcasting thoughts into his head:

    OBEY! OBEY!

    Vic? Is this you?

    Relishing autonomy is liberating, but it eventually becomes exhausting.

    "I'm going to be my own man, now Goddamit!"

    "Oh yeah? Well what happens when you get tired of bossing yourself around?"

    It just dawned on me why I like this thread so much...

    And spontaneity is my dearest value. And I understand spontaneity is not valued here any more than I am.
    :Looks under Vic's avatar: 5,964 posts??? You sure do enjoy spending time on this authoritarian site, Mr. Spontaneity.
    Welcome to the machine, Vic.

    OBEY!

    AH HA!!! Your true plan is revealed. So cleverly speaking of your need for spontaneity and then suggesting a Mod who is above authoritarianism.

    You just wanna be a Mod!

    Victor = Authoritarian in Disguise. Well played, OP!

    The authoritarian personality is an improvement on the abusive personality. For the abusive personality is against you, while the authoritarian personality is against themselves.

    But its worse, the authoritarian personality seeks positions of authority. And there is nothing worse than an authoritarian personality in charge. And whenever I see an authoritarian personality in charge, I feel sick.

    But always remember that no matter how nice an authoritarian is, no matter how powerful they become, they have an inner weakness and they are inclined to break down under stress.

    ...

    From the outside they look impregnable, but from the inside we know they will crumble under stress. So it is up to us, not to attack them from the outside, but to attack them from the inside, their weakest point.

    Their niceness is simply part of their external defence. And of course we fall for it because we long to have someone powerful be nice to us.

    If the authoritarian personality has strong external defenses and weak internal defenses, it is because they are intrinsically autonomous.

    So the autonomous person may have external chaos, but strong internal defenses because they are intrinsically authoritarian.

    The autonomous person is also crude and rebellious on the outside, while being sensitive and "nice" on the inside.

    I think that the authoritarian/autonomous dichotomy that you're drawing is false and misleading.

    It makes you look like a savior with a vendetta, fighting nothing but your own discomfort and then venting it out on others.

    So you are only revolting against yourself.

    In the interests of Spontaneity and as a show of respect to the ideals of our friend Victor...I'm derailing this thread.

    This thread is now about bananas.

    Yes, the advantage the authoritarian personality has viz the abusive personality is that the authoritarian personality is autonomous.

    The authoritarian personality goes to work even thought they hate it.

    Whereas the abusive personality needs someone else to abuse in order to function.

    So the authoritarian personality is autonomous, while the abusive personality is dependent.

    Yes, I do enjoy posting. I enjoy one post at a time. One enjoyable step after another until I've almost climbed a 6,000 foot peak.
