DSM-IV 301.95 Progressive Personality Disorder: A Classic by John Moore

aa_bullets-1029.jpgA. A pervasive pattern of progressive political and inter-personal thought and action, rooted in discredited leftist (neo-Marxist) beliefs, beginning in early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by at least five of the following (individual must be at least 18 years of age to qualify for the diagnosis of Progressive Personality Disorder, as many of the criteria are age-appropriate for adolescents). This disorder often coexists with Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

  1. Utopian thinking, e.g. a delusional belief that there exist simple, linear, side effect-free solutions to all social problems.

  2. Lack of historical knowledge and perspective, and repression of personal memories dissonant with this belief system. e.g., the national mood post 9-11, including that of PPD patients, is suppressed in order to avoid conflict with subsequent reversal of beliefs as the PPD delusions were reinstated - hence the downplaying of terrorism as a threat and the obsessive concern for the "rghts" of temporarily feared and hated terrorists. (Note to clinician: please differentiate between mere historical ignorance, e.g., a doctorate in history from an elite university, vs. neurotic or psychotic delusions necessary to sustain these beliefs. )

  3. Anthroplastic delusion, e.g. The delusion that behavioral conditioning performed by the government or some other collective will cure all behavioral and social problems, rooted in denial of fixed human nature. Implicit in this delusion is the idea that human beings are infinitely malleable and subject to behavioral manipulation leading to perfect control and predictability. Free will, personal conscience, and objective morality are denied, devalued or denigrated.

  4. Anti-theistic rebellion: An emotional antagonism to the Judeo-Christian tradition, rooted in an abnormal persistence of adolescent rebellion (may also be related to the need to avoid counter-arguments that would question utopian, anthroplastic ideation). This behavior ranges from a mere antagonism to Christianity to a hatred of all forms of religion. The rejection of religion leads to a deep longing for a substitute religion, or in extreme cases, a messiah. The more Western a religion is, the more it is despised. Thus, these patients may openly accept more primitive pantheistic, neo-pagan, or animist belief systems, such as Wicca or fraudulent "new age" philosophies, e.g., Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, etc.

  5. Animist delusion: The belief that mankind is evil and nature is benign. The incidence of this symptom is inversely related to practical knowledge and experience of nature. Collective self-hatred is a feature in this area, paradoxically existing side by side with egomaniacal omniscience, e.g., ability to accurately predict climate 100 years into the future. Typical thinking includes the self-hating belief that mankind is a cancer on earth and that the planet (subjectively felt as a "feeling being") will "retaliate." The animist delusion includes considerable cognitive dissonance, since the typical Progressive Personality is a believer in natural selection, which has resulted in untold suffering and cruelty, mitigated only by mankind's presence.

    • a. For example, the belief that an eagle egg or four-toed salamander is entitled to more legal protection than a human baby.
  6. Environmental spasm: Chaotic, unreasonable, or incoherent episodes of manic activity on behalf of the environment or "mother nature." The delusional nature of this activity is evidenced by misanthropic attacks on works of man, and also by a manic focus on visible or totemic biological objects of little rational value. The patient is typically obsessed only with cute or cuddly creatures, often a displacement of the nurturing urge (often unfulfilled due to abortion).
  7. Control obsession: A tendency to strive for excessive control over others through state intrusion. A contemptuous projection of unconscious envy which is subjectively experienced as "compassion." Through the magic of this unconscious mechanism, PPD patients typically want the state to appropriate your wealth while imagining themselves to be generous and "compassionate." Use of state coercion often substitutes for true acts of generosity; a low rate of charitable giving is often present.
  8. Racist/feminist hypocrisy: Passionate advocacy of government-enforced discrimination based on sex or race, with aggressively proclaimed opposition to policies which are "racist" or "sexist." Obsessive conformity of thought within a racially diverse population. For example, a PPD patient might favor seating a racist on the Supreme Court, so long as the person is of the "correct" race. Often the cognitive dissonance normally associated with such beliefs is rationalized by the delusion that the "oppressed" cannot themselves be racist.
  9. Overemotional perception: Excessive concern with how a social action "looks" or "feels," to the exclusion of actual resulting benefits or harm; in particular, any effects beyond the immediate. Resistance to, and denial of, objective evidence proving the adverse consequences of progressive policy. Superficial cognition about most matters of significant import, as the progressive personality relies on the "feel" of issues rather than truly understanding them. Obsession with "fairness" or "social justice" as opposed to what actually works.
  10. Sexual dysfunction: Significant anxiety about sexual matters, manifested as:
    • a. Obsession with sexual and gender roles.
    • b. Passionate celebration of nontraditional sex roles and preferences.

    • c. The compulsion to define individuals by their "sexual preference" and to design social policy as if all individuals share the obsession.

    • d. An inordinate interest in preserving inappropriate, lewd, perverse, or antisocial forms of sexual expression.

    • e. Fascination with immature or deviant expressions of sexuality; reduction of human sexuality to animal sexuality.
    • f. The projected belief that the contradictory beliefs are a result of fear (e.g. "homophobia".

    • e. Obsession with contraception and abortion ("reproductive freedom").

  11. Replacement of patriotism with matriotism: Unwillingness to defend country when attacked or threatened, allied with inability to name or recognize evil and General devaluation of the masculine virtues.

  12. Cultural and moral relativism: The fervent belief that all cultures are beautiful except one's own, and that it is immoral to judge another's morality unless they are conservative.

Interestingly enough, we are on red alert here in my rural household. An escaped convict, with a stolen deer rifle, is on the loose and it also happens that it is exactly in the area of my home.

A DOC (SWAT style) team just stopped to brief me.

Only last week I was getting my rear-end chewed off by a group of libs because I believe in gun ownership. In my rural Washington county, everyone is gunned up and let's just say the escapee is outgunned by everybody to 1. It's windy and rainy today and I expect he might die in the canyon in this weather.

I'll keep you posted.

Well, ain't that a fine kettle of fish. Turns out our President, Vice President, and half the Congress are suffering from this. I suggest we put them all on medical leave and carry on.

Brilliant. Thanks for posting.

I read this comment the other day and thought it should be spread far and wide:

When the Trostkyites get power, they are always surprised when the Stalinists show up.

Hint: Obama and Hillary Clinton are Trotskyites, so one has to wonder what comes next?

I know insanity when I encounter it, don't need all the psychobabble details.

Suffice to say, there are more people with the disease than there are without. Tomorrow there will be even more.

No, you don't have enough ammo, and you better practicing fast and accurate firing while running backwards, in the woods, at night.

Casey: hope you're doing alright.
Locked and loaded for a day or so, eh?

Them liberals, they like it so much, tell 'em to take the guy in for a night, haw haw.

Posted by: chasmatic at October 30, 2015 10:11 PM

chas: none here to volunteer for taking him in.

Always fun to talk with a SWAT team in your driveway while wearing your sidearm.

He's still at large and my rural house is the center of the cordon area. We are keeping firewatch here.

I hope 10 rounds is enough...sarc/off.

Note: I was infantry from PV1 to CPT; hunter now. 1 time last year I got mad at some news item and went down to my pistol range (on the back of my property) and set up bowling pins around the clock and at varying ranges. All 6 went down with 6 shots.

I'll be fine.

Posted by: Casey Klahn at October 31, 2015 2:09 AM

That's good news. Nobody will mention it but a coup de grĂ¢ce is acceptable with jerks like this.
If anyone asks, "He was still moving, trying to reach his gun. I felt threatened".
A trip to the station, one or two of the lads will admire your pistol; fill out the forms, done.

Careful with that recommendation Chas, things are always changing, for the worse.

I was told by the authorities that ALL defensive discharges of a firearm require the shooter to surrender his weapon pending an investigation, to (potentially) be returned at a later date. No estimate given as to how long the firearm would be confiscated. So you have to have at least 2 firearms at all times. Also, you hear little about it, until it occasionally blows apart, but guns frequently end up *missing* from the evidence rooms.

Would you really trust a cop with anything? Really?

My hunting buddy (USMC force recon sniper) jokingly says that his liability on a legal shoot in Seattle is odious, and he uses those phrases. Me? I'd go to the station where they'd issue me a new tag.

I live in a salt of the earth western county where firearm ownership is normal stuff.

Helicopters with arrays are micro searching the canyon (which I know like the back of my hand). Steep, rocky and wooded, but there is a limit to the space. If he did stay in this area, he is cold and wet and it is within the realm of possibilities that he died of exposure. Washington State in the rain is a harsh judge.

I just cleared my barn, Quonset Hut, etc.

Posted by: Casey Klahn at October 31, 2015 11:35 AM

Yeah, you're right ghost. Discharge of a firearm resulting in death does get some attention.
Casey might have to surrender his weapon but he'll sleep in his own bed.
I've heard of firearms gone "missing" too. A lot depends on the relationship Casey might enjoy with the local police; if they think he's a right guy things will go smoothly.

None of which would cause me to hesitate pulling the trigger.

Posted by: chasmatic at October 31, 2015 10:05 PM

Definitely. Better to shoot than be shot.

Now: morning of day 3 after 2 nights where the circle seems to stay right here by my house. The canyon is east not a mile across fields from me. I on 1 road boundary and the bottom of the canyon the other. Now there have been a hundred plus police of varying stripes and choppers with arrays and K-9s and we are told snipers (told by a deputy). I informed the sheriff he could have the incident manager / commander talk to me if he wants the inveterate hunter's terrain analysis, but we'll see if they want it. Hee hee. An old dog long in the tooth. But, no bad guy at my farm so far. I find myself wondering where the turkeys, coyotes, wolves, deer, cougar, bear, and moose will be after their otherwise secluded habitat has been totally overrun.

Posted by: Casey Klahn at November 1, 2015 8:29 AM

Casey, if this con has any kind of field craft it might be a while.
Are they sure they've contained him? It would be the shits if he has slipped through.

Posted by: chasmatic at November 1, 2015 9:21 PM

No resolution and the police (over a hundred from multiple agencies Friday and Saturday) have scaled it way back. Looks like he pre-planned his escape so all options are open.

Most "outdoorsmen" are ignorant of how dangerous it can be to arrive outdoors in wet cotton pants (he took on water on the ATV that he crashed in the canyon when he ran out of terrain). It is the death knell in Washington state to get wet and not be properly clothed.

Last year a shooter killed (iirc) a park ranger and then fled on foot at Mt Rainier. In the snow. He had outdoors skills / military background. Just another dipsh!t in my book; found dead.

This fugitive either pre-arranged a getaway with help. slipped the cordon and went to Spokane, or died and is not found because of the steep terrain. I know the area like the back of my hand and it is game trails only in some spots, scree slopes, old burns, cliffs.

Maybe when I go turkey hunting this fall, I'll trip over a free 30.06. Too bad I know who it belongs to, though.
