An infantile Gun culture is one aspect of the conservative brain, in that it is an indicator of a lack of critical thinking and a fearful propensity toward violent resolution of disputes. —Patrick Andendall
He was big into segregation and other stuff,” Tyler told ABC News. “He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.
Not all brains function the same way. You have the Conservative brain, with it’s more fearful singular nature and the not Conservative brain, which tends to be more adaptive.
“Fear makes man unwise in the three great departments of human conduct: his dealings with nature, his dealings with other men, and his dealings with himself. Until you have admitted your own fears to yourself, and have guarded yourself by a difficult effort of will against their myth-making power, you cannot hope to think truly about many matters of great importance.” —Bertrand Russell (“Outline of Intellectual Rubbish” in Unpopular Essays, 1950)
“ProCon.org has gathered 13 peer-reviewed studies of behavioral and neurological studies and come to the conclusion that differences between Republicans and Democrats are more than skin-deep. ‘Basically, the different sides have been yelling at each other for millennia, and we’re trying to figure out what could be the root cause of this,’ said Steven Markoff, ProCon.org’s founder. The studies looked at things like differences between groups’ perception of eye movement, and aversion to threatening noises. Researchers also noted that Democrats had larger anterior cingulate cortexes, which are associated with tolerance to uncertainty, while Republicans had larger right amygdalae, which are associated with sensitivity to fear . . . Markoff concluded the studies combine to mean that the different groups communicate in different ways [and] psychiatrist Greg Appelbaum said the studies point toward conservatives’ tendency to avoid something called self-harm, while liberals avoid collective group harm.”
First let us is look at successful domestic terror plots. 88% of Terrorist plots were committed by those on the extreme right of the political spectrum.
Here the extreme Right has an ever larger edge – responsible 93% of the time
“A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists and comes as the Obama administration holds a White House conference to focus efforts to fight violent extremism.
Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.
The Homeland Security report, produced in coordination with the FBI, counts 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.
A survey last year of state and local law enforcement officers listed sovereign citizen terrorists, ahead of foreign Islamist and domestic militia groups as the top domestic terror threat. The survey was part of a study produced by the University of Maryland’s National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism. All of this activity is one of the reasons why we have an increasingly militarized and Gun snappy police force, killing countless unarmed people.
In 2013, a man who held anti-government views carried out a shooting attack on three Transportation Security Administration employees at Los Angeles International Airport, killing one TSA officer. Last year, a couple killed two police officers and a bystander at a Las Vegas Walmart store.
Mark Potok, senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, said that by some estimates, there are as many as 300,000 people involved in some way with sovereign citizen extremism. Perhaps 100,000 people form a core of the movement, he said.”
Oh – I know – South Carolina, here’s an idea, let’s make concealing guns even easier. Let’s propagate the false notion (that only a moron would believe) that more guns = more safety. But they are not just morons -they are overwhelming moronic, as the South Carolina House has just since passed an unlicensed concealed carry law. Really! Have you guys not heard of a cooling off period, a chance for your tiny little brains to reboot after a systems crash that happens every day with in thirty minutes of waking up?
It is the simple laws of physics – you hit someone and they will seek to hit you back. The doctrine introduced by Jesus, of turning the other cheek, is simply too nuanced for a conservative brain. True freedom is when the “caged brain” can free itself of Dogma, of Myth and ignorance driven bigotry. This freedom can only come about when the critical thinkers that still exist within the Stupidparty take some responsibility and abandon their party, recognize the false equivalence that has slowed their wits – and disown a party that is far closer to a hate GrOuP than the more respected party of the 20th century. Because if these critical thinkers would just abandon the cave dwellers – these hapless delusional deceived folk would be forced from their caves and into the sunlight of facts, truth and science and seeing that they have been duped would likely renew their connection to the rest of mankind.
So how does the Stupidparty react to all this?
Morons within Morons within Morons – sounds like the next script for a Christopher Nolan movie.
