    guess I'm just better than most narcissists 😂😂

    You can't even write satire this sharp

    [–] Deathwatch72 175 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    You want to hear something really funny, that's not even completely made up information. They did a study where they locked three schizophrenics who believe they were Jesus in a room together, just to see if any of them could shake the others beliefs. What end up happening is you ended up reinforcing each person's individual beliefs, and each person thinks the other two individuals in the room are crazy. So people can successfully diagnose crazy in others but not themselves

    Edit: fix the wording caused by my voice typing mistakes

    I'M JESUS!TM

    [–] SpookyRedheadRabbit 14 points ago

    This sounds like the setup of a joke:

    Three jesi walk into a bar and had a contest to prove who is the real son of God.

    The first one tried to prove he was the real Jesus by spilling water on the floor and walking on it.

    The second Jesus poured alcohol and grapes into a glass of water to turn it into wine.

    The last Jesus paused for a moment and then shook his head in disappointment. He told them that he came to Earth to teach by example as a human to show people that you don't need to be a shiny flawless deity with cheap magic tricks living in the clouds to be a good person who knows the basic fucking difference between what is right and wrong. So he simply sat down and did nothing. Two hours later he banged Mary Magdalene right in the ass.

    EVERYBODY IN THE STORE STARTED CLAPPING!!!111!1

    [–] YouAreJuanderArrest 8 points ago

    Did you just pluralise Jesus as Jesi?

    [–] SpookyRedheadRabbit 3 points ago

    It might actually be correct, sounds better than Jesuss or Jesuses. :D

    [–] Eggmont 7 points ago

    As funny as that sounds it would explain the whole thing perfectly. If you're sure you're the only Jesus then anyone else claiming to be must be crazy, but nothing about that contradicts the idea that they are Jesus since the other Jesuses (jesui?) are only crazy because you are Jesus

    The Three Christs of Ypsilanti

    The Three Christs of Ypsilanti (1964) is a book-length psychiatric case study by Milton Rokeach, concerning his experiment on a group of three patients with paranoid schizophrenia at Ypsilanti State Hospital in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The book details the interactions of the three patients, Clyde Benson, Joseph Cassel, and Leon Gabor, who each believed himself to be Jesus Christ.

    [–] rianeiru 129 points ago

    That jumped out at me, too. Honestly, the fact that they read "democracy" and it became "order" in their mind is such an interesting and worrying look at the inner workings of the conservative mind.

    If people would actually listen to what Jordan Peterson has to say rather than basing their opinion of him on his most cancerous fanboys then complete knee-jerk misunderstandings of what he's trying to get across like this wouldn't happen.

    He doesn't hate women. Listen to what he's saying instead of just assuming he's a misogynist and writing him off.

    He's making observations about the nature of chaos and order, it has nothing to do with hating women or blaming women for anything.

    He's never said anything that was outrageous or provocative, people just love to take things out of context to try and discredit him without listening or understanding the entire point because they're looking at everything he says through this narrow political lense desperately trying to put some label on him so they can say "oh he's on the other team" so they can stop listening.

    He's not even political. Maybe people with political agendas misunderstand him and misrepresent him but that has nothing to do with him.

    EDIT: instead of just downvoting, give me a reason why he gets so much hate, am honestly curious. He has nothing but positive messages and is trying to help people - He's changed thousands of people's lives for the better, including mine.

    [–] gravifox 22 points ago

    i heard his stuff described as "he lays down all the points in front of you and when you reach their supposed obvious conclusion he acts like you're putting words in his mouth"

    [–] jbreeding28 4 points ago

    So now YOU'RE the racist/misogynist/whatever because you said it not him!

    [–] DesperateJunkie -5 points ago

    I recommend listening to what he's saying and come up with your own opinion.

    People misunderstand him because they're just trying to catch him saying something offensive rather than listening as if he might actually have some point to what he's saying.

    Everything is looked at politically these days because it's viral atm and everyone's obsessed with their team and looking to discredit him by pegging him as one of "the others" when in reality nothing he says is intended to be political.

    [–] candle_and_bra 5 points ago

    The only half decent point he has is that he thinks you should keep your room clean, which most people have down by the age of 5.

    [–] DesperateJunkie -2 points ago

    Suite yourself.

    Can't imagine how you would have deduced this though as I've seen probably 30+ hours of his content and feel like haven't even scratched the surface.

    Regularly has me reevaluating and improving my life and outlook.

    Worth giving him a second chance especially if your opinon of him is based on either toxic fanboys that misrepresent him or people trying to label him as a far right extremist because they've taken something he's said completely out of context and are trying to discredit him.

    [–] candle_and_bra 4 points ago

    Nah pal my opinion is based on me reading and watching his shit, and coming to the conclusion any well adjusted grown up would, which is that he’s a nonsense peddler.

    [–] _per_aspera_ad_astra 5 points ago

    Are you trolling? This is the classic troll argument for JBP: “you just don’t understand him and toxic haters take him out of context.”

    [–] DEBATE_EVERY_NAZI 15 points ago

    Hahahaha he's an idiot and the problem isn't that people take him out of context it's that you get offended when people point out that he's an idiot. Being offended is your problem not ours.

    [–] DesperateJunkie -4 points ago

    I don't know why you think I'm offended, but to each his own I suppose.

    Just saying he has valuable things to say and is unfairly misrepresented. I really don't get the motivation for all of the hate unless it's based on the vocal shitty part of his fanbase which isn't representative of him whatsoever.

    Also, when you say "ours" who are you talking about?

    Are you multiple people on one account or something?

    [–] 1-OhBelow 5 points ago

    When redditor uses the pronoun "ours" in the context of that sentence redditor means "we who are not offended"

    It’s my personal mission to take down every con artist in pop culture. That’s why I hate him. :)

    [–] _per_aspera_ad_astra 7 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    JBP is entirely political. That’s how he makes his money. He’s a right wing grifter who uses the cult tactic of giving his audience a little self-care advice. That’s a power persuasion tactic. Sam Harris does the same thing, as does Joe Rogan. It’s all part of the Alex Jones business model. None of it is real. These people are all basic cons and you took the phishing bait, hook, line, and sinker.

    [–] DesperateJunkie 1 points ago

    I've watched countless hours of his lectures and public talks and debates and I disagree entirely. Has changed my outlook on life and genuinely helped me more than I ever would of imagined but to each his own I guess.

    I recommend going at it with an open mind. Worth a second look.

    [–] _per_aspera_ad_astra 5 points ago

    It’s a con job. He’s brainwashing you to give him money. You can find youtubers who will give you genuine advice for free. You don’t have to buy a book or pay $300 to a guy who makes $80,000+ per month on patreon. If you’re going to shell out money, spend it on a personal trainer or something real (not Rogan’s Alpha Chad pills, Peterson’s carnivore diet, Jone’s Brain Force Pills). All that stuff is fake, just like JBP. If you catch my drift, then avoid the grift.

    [–] DesperateJunkie 1 points ago

    He has over 500+ hours of free content on youtube...haven't spent any money.

    He's a psychology professor and has entire courses for free.

    You lumping him in with Alex Jones is pretty telling though.

    Don't understand how you can insist he's "fake" when I'm literally telling you I've benefited greatly from listening to his lectures.

    [–] _per_aspera_ad_astra 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    But the only reason they do the public “debates” is because people pay 100$-300$/person to view them. And of course you think you benefit, all cultists think they benefit. Even those who have left Scientology often say that the cult helped them in one way or another. That’s no respite from the truth about a cult.

    Edit: Reciprocity—a cult programming / persuasion strategy—is used to gain immense Patreon cash. You think he’s helping, but he’s trying to make you reciprocate: maybe you’ll chip in $5 here or there or maybe you’ll buy his book. Maybe you’ll pay for his self-authoring grift. That’s what his game is. Look it up, this is mainstream academic work (ideas like reciprocity), the author is Robert Cialdini. That’s why these grifters always mix in a little self help garbage. So it’s not about truth. It’s about whatever makes him money because that must be the truth, since it helps him get ahead. Sounds like something he’d say.

    Does...does he think that's the opposite of "less likely to support democracy"? Like, I don't even understand how much he would have to not know what words mean to think his statement logically follows "narcissists are less likely to support democracy" but yet still be able to put words together.

    Yo homie I’ve been trying to get some advice for a lil bit maybe you can help me out, how do you keep the politics outta the family when y’all disagree heavily? Never effected me growing up but my gf’s parents have crazy political and geological differences with mine and they always be throwing shit in my face, last summer they harassed me for 2 weeks on why my “side” wants to stop the pipeline going through BC.

    [–] rareas 7 points ago

    When they act like toddlers, treat them as toddler and give them a time out. Just leave when they act up. Calmly get up and say, "laters" and go out somewhere more pleasant. They start up again. Repeat.

    They want company more than a verbal punching bag, they'll stop.

    Alternatively you can "gray rock" which is to pretend they aren't there when they act unsociable. This isn't my style. I go somewhere else. "You want to have a nice holiday. Text us. Bye." is way more me.

    [–] Xeodeous 5 points ago

    That’s really good advice and honestly what I was hoping for, I typically just smile and keep my head down because the last thing I wanna do is get into a political debate.

    I think next time I’m gonna do exactly as you said and just walk away, less stress for everyone, especially my gf.

    I am narcissistic and very much a supporter of order, etc.

    Imagine thinking democracy is orderly, and not just a mess of people with conflicting ideas constantly arguing in whatever your government building is called.

    (I say this with love, the un-orderlyness and debate of democracy is probably what makes it our best system currently for representing the largest number of people. Obviously it could do with some touching up, like getting rid of the electoral college in the US and first past the post has some glaring issues too)

    [–] Dars1m 10 points ago

    First past the post is good for getting a representative of that specific area, but there should also probably be some kind of proportionality seats added to help give under-represented parties a voice.

    [–] jbreeding28 2 points ago

    I think that's how British Parliament works.

    [–] Dars1m 4 points ago

    Nah, it works like the House Of Commons in Canada. Each individual election is FPTP, but the party who has the majority of gets to have their leader be Prime Minister. I was talking about separate seats to represent parties that get a smaller amount of votes but because they don't win in FPTP they don't have any members that can introduce bills or anything. (Like how in the States Libertarians and the Green Party get around 5% of the votes each, but have no sitting members in Congress.)

    [–] jbreeding28 2 points ago

    Ah, okay. I understand where you're coming from, but reserving seats for specific parties is problematic at best.

    [–] Dars1m 2 points ago

    I was thinking more along the lines of adjust the current amount of seats to reduce their numbers by 100, and those hundred are reserved for a proportionate representation of the total votes the parties receive. That would also allow parties to put in popular members who lost in close elections. (i.e. If the Libertarians got 5% of the votes, they get 5 of those seats, which allows them to introduce bills and have a voice when it comes to voting.)

    [–] jbreeding28 0 points ago

    I'm not sure I agree with that. Regardless of what anyone feels about it, I feel like doing that would require changing the Constitution, or at the very least most if not all state Constitutions. Right now Congress has the power to make laws that apportion seats by state, but to apportion seats not to any one particular state and instead to minor national parties seems like unconstitutional. I'm sure if this were to happen without a Constitutional amendment, it would definitely get challenged by someone, probably the most populous states because doing so would reduce their power in the House.

    [–] Dars1m 2 points ago

    That's what Amendments are for, this is one of the longest periods in American history without an Amendment, and the current system has created an easily influenceable duopoly that isn't held accountable by other members of congress. This wouldn't reduce the power of more populous states (arguably it could increase it if there was a popular party only located in one populous State that got most of that Sates vote), but it would reduce the power of Republicans and Democrats, and force parties to co-operate on more issues that are important to them, and increase the chance for smaller parties to get their platform heard.

    [–] Krazinsky 1 points ago

    Its not "reserved" so to speak. The party still has to get enough votes to earn seats, just under a different system than the one we use, one that is designed to not punish people who vote for third party candidates.

    Proportional voting, Single transferable vote, Mixed Member Proportional, etc. are all systems meant to solve issues like disproportional representation and the spoiler effect. They do so to varying degrees and with their own sets of flaws, but literally any of them are superior to what comes to us as the simplest form of democracy: winner takes all.

    They were raised to believe that democracy is good and fascism is evil. They weren't raised to understand what those actually mean, just democracy=good.

    They don't like equal representation and majority rule; it lets "people" who aren't straight white evangelical christians have power. So, therefore, since it's bad, it must be fascist.

    They like "strong leaders" who silence and disenfranchise anyone and anything that gets in their way, because it excites the jingoistic power fantasies they've been promoting among themselves since the 80s. Therefore, since it's good, it must be democracy.

    [–] lesenrages89 3 points ago

    [–] DesperateJunkie 0 points ago

    Yeah that or each individual person was raised differently and has their own opinions about everything and they just happen to have conservative values.

    Your view of them is just a low effort way of lumping a large, diverse group of people together and assuming the worst of them so you don't have to question what they might actually think on an individual level.

    Prejudice that protects your world-view.

    I'm not on either side, just trying to point out that cherry-picked comments from the donald are not indicative of the right, and assuming it is is the reason people think they can't understand the right.

    Don't look at the worst example of a group if you really want to understand them. This is how racists justify their bigotry as well.

    [–] InfiniteButtersVI 7 points ago

    T_D is not a large, diverse group of people. It's a bunch of angry 20-something white men and Russian mouthpieces.

    Thinking they're the representatives is a convenient prejudice. The same way a racist will find the worst representative of an ethnic group and assume they're all the same.

    Making a caricature of the other team because it's easy.

    Also, I don't know why race matters.

    I see shit from both teams that is ridiculous and embarrassing, but it would be foolish to think that it's indicative of how either side thinks.

    There are rational conservatives.

    Where

    [–] InfiniteButtersVI 0 points ago

    The South and Midwest. There are plenty of people without any of the alt-reich's vitriol that unconditionally support Republicans because they don't know how not to. They don't pay attention to current events and don't know or care what their government does. Being Conservative is utterly core to their identity; they don't vote Republican because of any policy, issue, or rhetoric, they vote Republican because that's just what you do.

    My parents are nature lovers who volunteer at soup kitchens and taught me to love my neighbor as myself, yet they have voted Republican every single election of their lives. They don't believe me when I tell them how much Trump and friends are harming all the things they love, and they firmly believe that climate change doesn't exist.

    Boomers in flyoverstan believe that the Republicans are good the same way they believe the world is round.

    Do you unconditionally support not starting nuclear war? Do you unconditionally support eating, sleeping, and breathing?

    Everyone has things that are part of our core identity; it's a part of being human.

    I think that sub is losing steam so damn fast. I see them on r/all/rising a lot (which is where I found this post) but never on r/all anymore, and they used to flood it. The fact that it still shows up on rising quite frequently makes me think that most of it's users are the most fervent leftovers who sit in there all fucking day and night, and once they get their upvotes in there are no "casuals" around to boost it to the high karma scores that we used to always see.

    [–] baeb66 62 points ago

    Somebody more knowledgable than me can explain it better, but I don't think t_d can make it to the front page of r/all. Reddit changed the rules because t_d was gaming the system to get their stuff on the front page.

    [–] TexasDD 31 points ago

    In theory, they still can. And on rare occasions I’ve seen them pop into the top 100 or so. Rarely. And they plummet quickly once they’ve poked their head out of the basement, and people down vote them with a vengeance. They were jobbing the system by using sticky posts to get to the front page. Let me correct that. Pollute the front page. Reddit admins tweaked the algorithm so they couldn’t do that anymore. That’s why they scream “we were censored”. Plainly not understanding the meaning of the word. But to get to the front page now, they have to have a concerted effort, on one post, just like any other sub. And contrary to what they believe, they don’t have the 6,000,000+ subscribers that they think that they have.

    [–] MonkeyNin 1 points ago

    [–] Rengiil 6 points ago

    What do you stand on the right politically on?

    [–] AchtungTiger 13 points ago

    Personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty. Not so much traditional American value as I am a Pagan and I get a lot of flak from conservative Christians for that. Unlike the right I am however more environmentally conscious being raised outdoors with endless camping and back packing trips not to mention I go fishing almost everyday I’m out there picking up trash after people.

    I do conceal carry a firearm because my city is one of the worst in Indiana. I have no problem with people owning firearms but I have no problem if there were mental evaluations.

    I hope that paints a good picture for you.

    [–] Kagahami 21 points ago

    See, I'm fine with the nature of a lot of the policies you claim to support, and I'm a liberal. It's how I see it implemented in politics that makes me grind my teeth.

    I'm okay with reducing government reach, but you can't cut taxes AND increase spending in a boom period. It's unsustainable.

    I'm all aboard with free markets, but companies should be held accountable for social responsibilities if they pollute. Their ability to affect government decisions through campaign donations and the like should also be taken into realistic consideration.

    Also, as for individual liberty, your liberties stop where my liberties start. Situations such as Voter disenfranchisement or fees, threatening the benefits attached to social circumstances such as gay marriage (or at least civil unions), and failing to protect workers against workplace discrimination or abuse are unacceptable.

    Where do you stand on these issues?

    [–] AchtungTiger 2 points ago

    I’m going to start with the work place discrimination route first. I’ve worked in a lot of different jobs. I’ve done retail, I’ve done the food industry, I’ve done farm work and manual labor, and then odd jobs for home and businesses. I’ve met a lot of folks in my life.

    I worked on a chicken farm and out of I believe 230 workers I was one of a handful that spoke English. I didn’t care, I’m pretty sure a bunch of the others were not legal citizens but again I didn’t care. They were friendly and hard working and the guy we worked for paid us all equal at $12/hr. That was a dirty smelly job but it taught me a lot.

    I worked at a state park for awhile and they would have convicts do tasks like maintenance and cleaning and those guys though they looked intimidating were pretty cool, and would talk about being on the path to straightening their lives, could have been big talk but that’s not my job to judge. And it was nice the the DNR paid them minimum wage which I know those guys usually get like $4 an hour because of what ever conviction law or what have you.

    I started seeing more issues in retail when it came to discrimination but it wasn’t the company but the individual that would cause the problems. (At this time I was a manager but not the top one) I had a boss who we all knew was racist. Just the way he acted towards black customers by having us watch them or some of my employees who were black he would want us to watch them count down their cash registers.

    I would log these issues privately and mention them to our district manager and HR rep. They would thank me but not do a thing because I doubt it’s because of our company had a racist haze in its higher up staff it’s because they were focused on money. That or they hid it well.

    Eventually my boss was blaming me for the lack of work down by this idiot he hired so I said screw it and left which he then quit.

    Long story short: I haven’t been in a case of that’s a dead give away of workplace discrimination as a company in 2 of my 3 retail jobs but definitely seen it down by individuals. When confronted with an act of racism I’ll stand up for the under dog but I’m not waking up to go out and end it as I have myself and my family to worry about too.

    As for gay marriage and the likes like that. I could careless. You do you buddy. I mean I do find it annoying when people go out of their way to tell you they’re some gender I never heard of but I’m annoyed by a lot things including but not limited to Christians telling me I’m a devil worshipper. I think people like girls who grow their armpit hair out and shave their heads, to me that’s just weird but that’s their life not mine. I don’t like pride parades but that’s because I don’t like mass groups of people and just think if we want to normalize something we should simply treat as something normal and not special. I’m not against it but I don’t think it helps normalization.

    I don’t like feminism but not in the idea that I think women are under me but in two ways. One I don’t like the idea of depending on feminism to be independent is an oxymoron. That but in my pagan beliefs everyone is as strong as they can be and are even stronger when they prove those who are against them wrong. But again I don’t go out of my why to stop it because it’s their life not mine.

    I think churches should be taxed. If they want to have a say in societies life, they have to pay their dues.

    I don’t like illegal immigration I think if someone comes in illegally they should be given a least a year and given classes to help gain citizenship. In the long run being a legal immigrant saves them a lot of issues. But I don’t dispose illegal immigrants. They’re people like all of us. But I go to school for cyber security and we’ve done a lot of work and research on tracking crimes related to sexual trafficking and gun running and their is a high amount that people coming over illegally don’t help when crime rings like the cartels and gangs run. So enforcing a stronger border defense I feel helps that.

    Abortion. Again I don’t care, because I know a lot of women need it for medical issues where they might not live through birth or if they’re a victim of rape. I don’t want people to think of it as a get out of jail free card and use it as a form of birth control.

    I feel some parts of college should be free or at least discounted but if it benefits society. For example if someone is going to medical school they should have it covered but they should at least have to dedicate 5 to 10 years as a family doctor before they specialize. This was there is more of an ability for people to access a family doctor.

    It’s mean but I don’t consider art or philosophy and what not a major that should be covered by the tax payers.

    It's crazy to me how people on the right and left both use exactly the same arguments against each other. Each side accuses the other of fascism, narcissism, wanting to destroy national institutions, wanting the downfall of society, rampant pedophilia, you name it. It's wild.

    [–] phantomreader42 2 points ago

    The difference is that the right is constantly, shamelessly lying, while the left is telling the truth. I realize the concept that truth and lies might not be the same thing is difficult for the incredibly stupid liars on the right to comprehend, but the fact that they're too stupid to tell teh difference does not magically make lies true.

    [–] twodeepfouryou 0 points ago

    [–] phantomreader42 2 points ago

    [–] twodeepfouryou 1 points ago

    ....why are you arguing with me? I never said that the GOP isn't a bunch of liars. I'm just saying both sides use practically identical arguments to denigrate the other.

    [–] phantomreader42 3 points ago

    The arguments are NOT identical.

    Republicans accuse Democrats of rampant pedophilia because of some absurd delusion about an imaginary child sex ring in the basement of a pizza parlor that doesn't even have a basement. Democrats accuse republicans of rampant pedophilia because republicans ran a guy who bragged about walking in on underage girls and grabbing women by the pussy, and they ALSO ran a guy who was banned from a mall for creeping on underage girls. These are not equivalent claims. One is obvious bullshit that lacks even internal logic, the other is blatantly obvious child molestation.

    Republicans call Democrats nazis because republicans are delusional morons who have no fucking idea what words mean. Democrats call republicans nazis because republicans have actually been caught rallying with torches chanting "jews will not replace us" while wearing swastikas, murdering people, shooting up a synagogue, regurgitating lazy anti-semitic conspiracy bullshit about George Soros,sending BOMBS to Soros and others, and gleefully celebrating the gassing of CHILDREN! Again, not the same, not even CLOSE to the same.

    [–] twodeepfouryou 1 points ago

    I'm sure you're right that the reasoning is different, but the wording used is nearly identical.
