Addendum: sadism as self-flagellation

Original post.

I’ve noticed a tendency for sadists to respond poorly to weakness in others (to put it mildly). They appear to be unable to experience anger in a non-sexual way, which comes out as disgust (the sense of being vertically “above” the disgusting object). The mix of anger and disgust is contempt, so the result is for the sadist to bully the fetishized object until it no longer exists to threaten the in-group (that is, it removes itself from the in-group or dies). This would explain the predictable behavior of labeling the bully’s victim as something contemptible (nowadays “Gamma” if male, “slut” if female), and the existence of snuff pornos. The masochistic analogue would be anger*worship = hatred.

I noticed that sadomasochism (like all fetishes) is a form of masturbation where another person (or thing) acts as a dramatic prop for the misdirected behavior. E.g. The woman reading 50 Shades of Gray anthropomorphizes the desire to “beat herself up” as a man who wants to beat her up.

So where masochism anthropomorphizes self-hatred, sadism anthropomorphizes self-contempt. That is, at a deeper level the sadist wishes to be set free from his painful weakness, just as a masochist wants to be set free from the responsibility to overcome, defeat the Other, and win. This self-contempt is projected onto the fetish: if weakness deserves to be punished, then the victim ought to thank the bully for purifying their disgusting sins by inflicting struggles on them, which ought to train up the sadist’s “will-to-power” ethos within them. This unconscious purpose is never realized, but this only strengthens the perversion because the unfulfilled desire remains and the original channel is broken.

In any case, the act itself is considered morally self-justifying because if weakness and sin are the same, then anyone who is a victim deserves it by definition (the opposite of victim morality).

    This is exactly what can happen to someone who has been powerless their whole life and then finds power.

    more types of sadists

    > Luciferian sadist.
    Hates reality, wishes to pervert creation and/or destroy it.

    The pervert sadists types have the capacity to be the worst imo.
    The archetype would be the guy who would enjoy the REALLY fucked up sexual shit/ genetic manipulation.

    >’Pure’ Sadist.
    A true power hungry that really enjoys it, not trying to overcome weakness (He wouldnt’ think he had any), display contempt, etc.
    I really think there are “ppl” out there like this, though very very rare since it is archetypal tier.

    >Comedic Sadist
    Most all normies will find sadistic humor funny if you set it up right. I sure do.
    This is just someone whose humor relies very heavily on sadism and related thingies.
    Good (and funny) example being RLM’s Mr. Plinkett, especially in the old days.

      “Never again” about sums it up.

      I’ll have to take your word for it regarding the breakdown of types, as I haven’t dived that deep.

      True, I use “surprised by contempt” as a useful stand-in for the humor response. But you might be interested to know that SCIENCE has correlated trolling with sadism: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0191886914000324
