Here’s the original article: Self-Identifying Marxist Professors Outnumber Conservatives as College Professors. These are two of the comments and there are others if you go to the link. First this:
You hate capitalism because you don’t fully understand it. You obviously hate Christianity but that also follows with college indoctrination. Capitalism is about freedom within restraint and the ability of people to achieve on their own and to their own limits. Most socialism degenerates to authoritarian Communism because that is its goal – CONTROL over people and limits on freedom. Oh yes, Sweden and Denmark are such stellar examples of socialism that works. Just this week, I heard a lady who used to live in Sweden explain that the government starts with taking 70% of your income for taxes. Sure, most things are free, but what does that leave you? That also does not account for your basic necessities of life. Plus most people cant afford even small luxuries. She went on to explain how awful the system really was, not how it is portrayed by Socialists. I choose capitalism, even with its faults, because it is miles ahead of any other system since it allows the individual the freedom to achieve. We already have numerous examples of socialism that has invaded our country with the idea of single-payer healthcare, free education, free this and free that. Oh, it all sounds so good and compassionate but it always comes with a price and a hook. Unfortunately, the poor fools that believe it are destined for a poorer standard of living. Your education, if you have much, must be very limited in the area of economics, and most of all, in common sense.
This is the second.
The Marxists aren’t really true ‘believers’. It’s like they are trying to be cool and that’s what the out there profs are! They are really square, dull, conservative in the socially awkward sense, not the individuality and self reliance of western conservatism.
So, they need something to increase their uni-cred. Marxism hits all the nodes. Being a Randian would be a true act of defiance and intellectually stimulating and interesting, but most don’t have the prerequisite confidence nor, frankly, intelligence. Marxism gives intellectual points for its convoluted drawn out over indulgence on topics without having to really need to find out the messy truth, that people are different, good and evil, ridiculously lazy and ridiculously hard working. The difference between two individuals in one domain of competence can be bewildering, but their are multi varied analysis that need to be done to figure things out even to get nearer the truth. So one variable, 2-3 at most and blame it on the west as was cool when they’d been in school, fighting the man, (who was a slightly above average IQ female teacher who was a teacher for the hours and benefits, not the shaping of young minds and the potential therein).
But they had to rebel and one part of the rebellion is holding on to these crazy Cold War Soviet propaganda machines hold on useful idiots. Intelligent enough to become a professor, but not enough to recognise the truth cos their cognitive dissonance is too strong due to years of rejection from the best girls and bitterness at settling whilst dumber kids got the chicks n’ checks. That’s enough to convince you Western Civilisation is rigged and corrupt to the core. That’s how someone with 81’s approaching 150 can purport to believe in the wage gap based on one variable, gender, which of course is a social conduct.
So logic is not important in their politics. And they are usually atheist, so an own goal there as religion doesn’t claim logical in the same sense, it’s a story of archetypes and behaviour and how to (and not to) live your life.
All this brought about because they lost their virginity at 26 to a 5/10 librarian and they will get their revenge as the 8/10 who you got into college doing her homework was fucking Brad, the athlete who earns as much as you after student fees plumbing and, well, really? How’s that fair? That’s what the Corbyn and co are so ‘passionate. Substitute passion for frustrated or angry and that would be more plausible. I mean each to their own but even in those niche circles, Diane Abbott isn’t quite A grade, especially for a powerful man, an MP no less. Look what that UKIP guy got, and Profumo was quite a catch by anyone’s standards and both are in the same league as Jezza. No wonder he’s ‘passionate’. I would be too with virtually no outlet worthy of your station in life.
So, rationalise away your shortcomings and weaknesses. It’s the inevitable result of Capitalism, people’s sexual desirability has nothing to do with the socioeconomic political environment. No matter that humans have always been this way across time and space, race and cultures. Women mate across and up competence hierarchies, not dominance hierarchies as few of those exist and they aren’t very stable. The irony is that the West has replaced the ratio of functioning hierarchies from dominance based to competence based.
That and men practicing monogamy, so the very few at the top get all the women and it’s the reason high achiever females struggle to get partners, (When that happens, the men who don’t get access to females get mad and start rioting and burning).
it’s a real and worsening problem (the women getting partners, not the men rioting cos they can’t get them, which is partly why places like Saudi Arabia are as tyrannical as they are. They know first chance, they’ll be torn to pieces to get the most attractive women that the elites have a monopoly of so they use the Quran to prove this is what Allah wants. And who argues with Allah. Bit like Henry VIII, no?)
As women start to get the higher positions, which is a good thing as we’re doubling the talent pool, but the individual women themselves, they are already outperforming men until 30, but then they leave to have families, statsistacally speaking of course, #NotAll. Women who do rise in these hierarchies also proves they’re not dominance but competence based as women wouldn’t have a chance in the numbers they are achieving at present if it was a dominance trait, but in third world countries it is. How many women leaders are their in Africa that got their on there own and not because of a male relative, father or husband. The same as it has been for all human civilisation, about 2-5%, compared to 20-40% in the west and the wealthier the country the higher the women leadership goes up. Not only that but the trends are strongly in their favour.
Back to intelligent men being resentful of less intelligent but more competent men getting all the most desirable women… all cultures, ever, have done this. It’s just hard to accept that that being in the top 3-5% of intellectually gifted increases your market value, but nowhere near as good genes and athleticism does, understandably. Put together and Donald Trumps grotesquely chauvinist comments are suddenly not so outlandish. In fact, to put it bluntly, as he definitely achieved, it’s true. Maybe that’s why women are still fixated on that comment so long after it was released, not to mention made, is because they know it’s true and they hate themselves for it. Same for so called beta-males. They resent that women behave that way and not in a rational way that is in their self interest. But self interest is not what we are all striving for all the time.
But try telling that to geeks who are convinced the tide will turn and women will want intelligence over fitness due to the tech revolution. And Marxism will set the dynamics in culture and society to make it possible.
Billions of years of evolution says, well …No!
