We have now had 34 mass killings this year (of 5 or more people), and the year isn’t finished yet. Mass killing are one of the most heinous forms of destructive communication, the ultimate acting out of feelings. A while back President Trump said to Kim Jung Un, President of North Korea, that if the Korean leader continued to escalate his development of his nuclear arsenal, Un would experience “fire and fury like the world has never seen.” This, again, is the most destructive kind of communication—a harsh death threat.
“Black Lives do not matter to most black people. Only the lives that make the national news matter to them. Only the lives that are taken at the hands of cops or white people matter. The other thousands of lives lost, the other black souls that I, along with every cop, have seen taken at the hands of other blacks, do not matter,” noted a black police office named Jay Stalien recently in a Facebook post that went viral.
Booker T. Washington, the famous black orator, observed during his day, “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs –partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Recently a nurse was fired from Indiana University Health after she tweeted, “Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically, every son you had should be sacrificed to the B-ch Wolves…”
This statement resulted in its tweeter being punished. But many other such statements about men, especially white males as well as behaviors, have not only passed inspection but also have been encouraged. In fact, it appears that a kind of persecution of white males has gone on for at least half a century.
When individuals develop certain psychological symptoms, we say they have a mental order. If they assume that they and only they know what is right and what is wrong, that is a symptom of some kind of narcissism or paranoid personality disorder. If they act out on this feeling that they and only they are right and everybody else is wrong and begin to persecute those they feel are wrong, this would be a kind of antisocial personality disorder.
