Social Justice Warrior Quits the Alt-Left, Calling It a "Cult" and Religious Ideology

Even the slowest boat eventually makes it across the river.

I watched this Sargon of Akkad recap of an old book about cult methods and enforcement of groupthink. It includes disparagement of all those outside the cult for being debased, which makes those inside the cult feel virtuous about... well, just being in the cult.

Sound familiar?

Yeah, but to be fair a lot of us on the right do the same thing. Of course, it helps when the left is actively pushing... you know, actual debasement.

5 I just discovered a memo I wrote about the left being a cult and the Clintons being corrupt. Also, sources close to me who have read the memo, who are totally not me, claim that Dir. Comey is a douchenozzle.

Anyone know a NYT reporter I can leak this to?

9 I disparage the left because they aren't generally deep thinkers and only believe what their tastemakers tell them to believe.

If anything, I consider the right tribal. And, frankly, with the culture war where it is, it's almost required.

27 There's an excellent American Experience episode about Jonestown.

How do you think Jones controlled most of his cult followers?

By blaring all day on loudspeakers in Jonestown about how racist the United States was, it's more racist than ever, just so racist...racist racists.

If you ever get a chance to see it, it's really good. Also tells about the Democrat Party and sitting Democrat politicians i.e. Willie Brown (and others) in San Francisco kissing Jones' ass, appointing him to housing boards, etc.

He did a second video on BAMN (I posted that link) and I also posted a link to a 1993 marxist journal which expressed the same opinion about the BAMN patron.

61 "Fanaticism is faith in antagonism to Common Sense"(Oswald Chambers). Fanaticism creates an unreal world based on your ideology that is not properly wedded to actual facts and an actual process to bridge that ideology to the real world. We have a generation that has been given the false idea that they can create their own unreal world, with unreal principles and laws and expect everyone to live by them without any external consequences from the real world.
They are like a child in Walmart screaming about the new toy they want not realizing that these things cost money and the parent can't give them what they want every time. All they know is that their parents give it to them when the scream loud enough. "But we'll riot and burn things if you don't give us what we want!" they say. Well, they are going to have to learn the value of 'No' someday before their behavior and lifestyle kills them and the rest of the country.

RWS was founded in 1976 by Sanderson and someone else (wiki says). The marxists.org site has a PDF of a 1993 journal, which says the same thing as Sargon.

It was their way of coping with the repeated failures of communism on earth. So it became a religion, a big holy communist paradise in the sky.

We're a ragtag bunch of rogues and misfits. Being non-conformist and a just a bit contrarian - just a bit, mind you - we're not exactly cult material. Also, because of the nature of our political beliefs, which broadly favor individuality, independence and freedom, we are highly unsuited for the kind of lockstep, uniform groupthink that defines the left. The downside is it means the left can work as a monolithic machine and get what it wants, while we have a much harder time in that area.

However, I can't make that judgement on anyone as to whether they're in hell, I might say I wish they would be, or I think it's likely but I'm not really comfortable with the idea endless torment for admittedly ghastly but finite crimes, which is why I like the Roman Catholic idea of purgatory.

She also sounds like someone who was a blasphemer already as she had friends who were merely liberals and not in the Left. Since she had a foot out the door already, there was still sunlight coming in which limned the problems she was able to see.

Good on her.

Saw an episode of Remeni's show on Scientology where when someone is declared a threat to the church (forget the term), they will confront each of their family members (before they know person X is now officially declared bad) and make them affirm allegiance on the spot/promise to disconnect from the baddy or be declared an apostate as well (and then *they* lose their friends, family, job, etc.). This gets really ugly when you have families/multiple generations in teh church because there is a lot at stake.

193 I'm not really comfortable with the idea endless torment for admittedly ghastly but finite crimes
------------------------------------


Jesus spent a lot of time talking about hell, and the wages of sin. It doesn't matter if I'm comfortable with it or not. It's not me that has the last word. A Way was provided. If it were not necessary or sufficient, then when Jesus prayed in the garden for, if possible, to let this cup pass from Him, it would have been passed.

In other words, if we can somehow rid ourselves of our own sins, and be justified before a holy God within our own efforts, then Jesus' death provides nothing and we do not have a Savior.

199 Saw an episode of Remeni's show on Scientology where
when someone is declared a threat to the church (forget the term), they
will confront each of their family members (before they know person X
is now officially declared bad) and make them affirm allegiance on the
spot/promise to disconnect from the baddy or be declared an apostate as
well (and then *they* lose their friends, family, job, etc.). This gets
really ugly when you have families/multiple generations in teh church
because there is a lot at stake.

"Suppressive personalities" is what they call people who run afoul of Scientology. Supposedly, being declared an "SP" is why Nichole Kidman's and Tom Cruise's adoptive kids refused to have anything to do with their mother after the divorce.

Supposedly, that is also why Katie Holmes did all the cloak and dagger stuff she did before her break-up with Cruise to make sure she and Suri were residents of NY and not California and to make sure she got full custody.

I agree, if that took place, then God would not turn him away. Look at the thief on the cross. Kind of a last minute thing, and he himself admitted his own guilt. I understand not judging where someone's soul might be for eternity. I've heard absolute horror stories from missionaries overseas, who have seen some awful people come to Christ. I recall Jim Elliot, in Ecuador I think it was, and what his wife did after the tribal leaders murdered her husband.

Related to global warming and consensus, Francis Bacon had that figured out 400 years ago:

d going along together, rather than consent. But even if it had been a real and widespread consent, still so little ought consent to be deemed a sure and solid confirmation, that it is in fact a strong presumption the other way. For the worst of all auguries is from consent in matters intellectual (divinity excepted, and politics where there is right of vote)
