I have heard that Ted Kaczynski was quite a persuasive anti-Leftist. However, this is the first time I have read anything substantial of his (i.e. not a two-line quote, which don’t interest me).
This paragraph hooked me;
20. Notice the masochistic tendency of leftist tactics. Leftists protest by lying down in front of vehicles, they intentionally provoke police or racists to abuse them, etc. These tactics may often be effective, but many leftists use them not as a means to an end but because they PREFER masochistic tactics. Self-hatred is a leftist trait. -Ted Kaczynski
The leftist described here purposely provokes a severe, negative reaction because he enjoys the attention, yet doesn’t feel confident enough or valuable enough to earn/elicit positive attention. He doesn’t excel in sports, or academia, nor class-clownery; not even his bullying inspires fearful respect.
So he harasses, insults, disturbs and assaults those whom he knows will react. However, the conditions of eliciting those reactions, are chosen by the leftist; There is a strong tendency toward cowardice and provocation of those who cannot retaliate…..mob-on-one violence, or harassing beyond absurdity while on camera, or of police when he can feel safe knowing that any reaction will be measured, and yet morally outrageous. That isn’t to say that a severe reaction isn’t desired, and strongly, by the aggressor, but only that no possible reaction (not quite true, but I will get to that) will cause the terrorisor not to consider himself superior, vindicated, victimized and deliciously pitied.
For most people unaccustomed to confronting a leftist, he will typically follow the emotional flow of the leftist, falling into his frame and getting drawn into supplying the leftist the sweet, sweet emotional rush he desires. There are only two, and striving for one doesn’t undercut attempts to reach the other:
[Masochistic Victory] and [Morally Superior Lambastion].
[Masochistic Victory]: The victim steps beyond either moral or legal defensability by screaming, punching, pushing or excessively insulting (“fuck off, cunt”) the leftist. The leftist is allowed to feel the sweet agony of being victimized
[Lambastion]: The victim is made to retreat each of his arguments, apologise and end all engagement (including physically withdrawing) Whether the victim retreats physically, or just truckle his argument, the leftist will harry the backtracking with even stronger insults and moral derogitation (“You are a racist, a hater, I can’t even”). Dog-piling by the peer group, media, polite society and any other leftist allies occurs until maximum feels and genuflection has been achieved.
