Fix Yourself

Esteemed countermoonbat Jordan Peterson finds that there are two basic attitudes toward problems: you can blame the world, or you can ask what you can do differently. The former puts you on a moonbat’s path to nowhere, the latter on the path to success and earned self-esteem:

Dr. Peterson’s prescription is bitter medicine to those who find it more convenient to blame injustice than to take responsibility.

On tips from Wilberforce and Don M.

    Psychological Hogwash from a head shrinker to blame yourself other than pointing out the problems within the USA….why is moonbattery here other than to address the problems within the country? and i love the “positive” word inserted…

    Many people fail to understand the true difference between the way the left and right wing view humanity. The left believes primarily in science, not God and spirituality. They believe in Darwinian evolution where black people are viewed as being lower
    on the evolutionary chain, they believe that black people literally cannot make it in a free society and in fact, wish to be enslaved. Benjamin Rush, who has come to be known as the father of modern psychiatry coined a term called “negritude.” He believed that blacks were simply not as capable as higher evolved whites and argued that they should be taken care of by the white man. To understand this further read my article “Psychiatry: The True Origins of Racism.”

    The Radical Conservative: Psychology: Silent Weapon of the Elites Pushing us all
    Toward the Same End By David Risselada

    With an ever increasing intensity, more and more Americans are becoming aware of the collectivist agenda being pushed by the Obama administration and their media cohorts.

    This article is not about Donald Trump; rather, it is about the silent weapon of psychological manipulation.

    The False Doctrine of “Positive / Negative”

    Just where did the whole concept of “being positive” come from? Those skilled in the art of persuasion throughout the ages have always realized the value of telling people what they want to hear.
    However, the one man most responsible for it’s insinuation into our culture
    would be Norman Vincent Peal.
    Norman Vincent Peal was a Methodist minister who later converted to Dutch Reformed. He hosted a radio show called “The Art of Living” for 54 years and started the world’s largest religious magazine known as Guideposts. He died in 1993 at the age of 95, but he wrote over 46 books with his most popular one being The Power of Positive Thinking. It was written in 1952 and has sold more than 20 million copies in 41 languages. He was often referred to as “God’s Salesman” and pioneered the integration of Christianity and psychology with a strong emphasis on self-esteem.
    This is an issue which has “stuck in my craw” for a long time. It really bugs me when I hear preachers playing fast and loose with the truth and telling people how they just need to keep a positive outlook and not loose their “happy thoughts” and everything will be fine. This sort of Peter Pan advice (if I may borrow from Billy Joel) reminds me of a series of commercials MTV ran a few years back. One in particular showed a guy in an elevator which all of a sudden starts plunging down out of control.
    His fear shows on his face but as he begins to listen to the Muzak playing he
    starts to forget his fear. Soon he’s got a smile on his face and he’s nodding to
    the music as he continues to plunge to his death…

    My life is happier when I hold myself responsible for the decisions I make. I can’t control illegal immigration. I can’t control who is elected president.

    I can only control where I live, where I work, whom I marry, what time I will rise in the morning, and whether I will spend this day as productively as possible. I can also control whether I thank God for this new day that has been given to me. I also attempt to thank my wife for marrying me and living with me.

    If the Left primarily believed in science, then they couldn’t argue that gender can be changed through surgery. They also would bother to read up on what they assume (incorrectly) the “settled science” of climate change. They would also have a much harder time arguing for abortion at any time… and the list goes on…

    Maybe you should have just posted the Serenity Prayer…
    Pragar preaching psychology over action is no surprise!!

  8. Bar Dou says:

    The left believes in blaming others. Liberals never take responsibility for themselves, they want and make themselves responsible for you. They want to tell you what to eat, drink, raise your children and when things go wrong, they will blame you. I agree with the professor, fix yourself because you are who you have to live with.

    We are all plunging to our death, either fast or slow. Might as well enjoy the ride.

    We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to
    spend the rest of our lives there… – Charles Kettering

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    ― Samuel Adams

    Tolerance is the last virtue of a dying society
    –Aristotle

    “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”

    “Those who profess to favor freedom and yet discourage agitation are people who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its waves. This struggle may be a moral one or it may be a physical one, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out what people will submit to and you will find out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them. And these will be continued
    until they are resisted in either words or blows or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those they oppress.”
    –Frederick Douglass, 1857

    The Secular Basis for Self-Esteem:

    You are the descendant of a tiny cell of primordial protoplasm that washed up
    on an ocean beach ten billion years ago. You are the blind and arbitrary product
    of time, chance and natural forces. Your closest living relatives swing from
    trees and eat crackers at the zoo.

    The Christian Basis for Self-Esteem:

    You are a special creation of a good and all powerful God. You are the climax
    of his creation, the magnum opus of the greatest artist in the universe. You are
    created in His image, with capacities to think, feel, and worship that set you
    above all other life forms. You differ from the animals not simply in degree,
    but in kind.

    Self-Esteem for Christians?
    Even though the Bible does not teach self-love, self-esteem, self-worth, or self-actualization as virtues, helps, or goals, a vast number of present-day Christians have been deceived by the self-teachings of humanistic psychology.
    Rather than resisting the enticement of the world they become culture-bound. Not
    only do they not resist the tidal wave of selfism; they are riding the crest of self-esteem, self- acceptance, and self-love. One can hardly tell the difference
    between the Christian and the non-Christian in the area of the self, except that the Christian adds God as the main source for his self-esteem, self-acceptance, self-worth, and self-love.
