Think Woke Leftists Are Psychopaths? Recent Study Agrees
The Daily Wire recently reported on a study from Current Psychology that stated that “left wing extremism and aggression are linked to psychopathic and narcissistic tendencies.”
The report went on to say that those individuals that have those traits demonstrate an affinity for exhibiting left wing aggression.
Now, for those of us who understand that like the little boy in the movie Kindergarten Cop who told Arnold Schwarzenegger “boys have penises and girls have vaginas,” this comes as absolutely no surprise at all.
In fact, the left became “the left” because of their radical and disruptive views. In the early 20th century the terms left and right became associated with political ideologies. The left supporting socialism and the right for conservatism. These political distinctions then expanded to the rest of the world. The left has always attempted to defend their ideology as being progressive, as if to say that conservatism hates progress. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. The left’s lean towards socialism and communism is anything but progressive.
Today the far left have become social agitators, demonstrating, and insisting on changes that defy logic. The authors of the study, Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams, have coined a new term for this psychological behavior, “the dark ego vehicle principle.”
In an interview w/ PsyPost, they said this:
“According to this principle, individuals with dark personalities, such as high narcissistic and psychopathic traits are attracted to certain forms of political and social activism which they can use as a vehicle to satisfy their own ego-focused needs instead of actually aiming at social justice and equality.” “In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.”
The study on left wing authoritarianism (LWA) proved that in many cases these individuals do not practice what the preach while screaming it at the top of their lungs. For these supposed activists feigned social justice is nothing more than a guise to behave unhinged, the research noted.
“Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism. An individual high in LWA might declare anyone to be “old fashioned” who is opposing their own “progressive values,” strive to suppress free speech to regulate the expression of right-wing beliefs in educational institutions, and even endorse the use of violence to reach their own political goals.”
The study also showed that those of higher means or privileged backgrounds often use the narcissism associated with LWA to make their activism solely about themselves and not for the betterment of achieving social equality for a specific group.
“Minority groups should be made aware of the narcissistic “enemies” from within their activist movement, as these individuals could hijack the cause thereby reducing the success of the activism in many ways.”
“As grandiose narcissists typically desire fame, distinction, elevated social status and high social importance, they can be assumed to strive for influential positions that involve social visibility and outreach as well as access to financial and other resources.”
LWA also includes:
“anti-hierarchical aggression or wanting to use force to overthrow established hierarchies, anti-conventionalism or embracing progressive moral values, and top-down censorship or wanting to use the government to suppress speech.”
Naturally, we already knew this, but it nice to know that a study has finally been documented about the demented leftist ideology. The truth offends the woke leftist and reality confounds them. Therefore, they adore lies and worship unreal and hideous fantasies.
Stay true to yourselves, enjoy the reality and greatness of life.
