Some thoughts on resentment and psychological conditioning

Pretty good thesis here:

It sometimes seems as if the primary purpose of the mainstream modern world is (when not inculcating fear) to cultivate resentment.

Resentment is, in my estimation one of the most evil of sins, because of its characteristic to grow – by feeding upon itself, by brooding upon grievances, by finding confirmation wherever it look, and by stimulating others to behave in a way that apparently justified resentment. Resenters are seldom popular with those they resent, so resentment tends to lead to grounds-for-resentment…

-Bruce Charlton
Resentment: shun it – Gratitude: nurture it

I.e. The M0 virus, except it’s grievance-mongering spiteful mutants instead of dopamine-chasers setting the people responsible for civilization on fire (because it’s the only way they can have fun after frying their dopamine receptors with drugs). One of my fantasy projects is to write a book called “Religion of Resentment” showing how Judaism is an ethnic religious spin on revenge porn, and how the unwillingness to forgive and move on is the same thing as narcissism (both the psychopathic and neurotic variants). Tie that in with the info in Twenge and Woodley’s books and you’ve got a pretty good stab at the mechanics of the Glubb cycle.

Well, let’s just stop right there! Because in reality there are No grounds-for-resentment – and the idea that there are such grounds is a part of the sin encouraging atmosphere of many social circumstances. For example, I have often heard it said that (given ‘history’) it is ‘not surprising’ or ‘understandable’ that – say – the Irish resent the English. Thus has soul-rotting resentment been celebrated and encouraged for generations*.

The fact is that resentment is evil – so there are never Any grounds for it; and we should not speak as if it were a natural response to maltreatment.  Resentment may, like most other sins such as fear or lust, be ‘inevitable’ as an occurrence; but that does not make it Good.

This is because the primary harm of resentment is upon the soul of him who resents.

Yeah, but it is “not surprising” and “understandable” that people who don’t believe they have immaterial souls don’t feel any need to protect those souls from harm. As I’ve pointed out before, it’s likely impossible for a true believer in materialism to engage in moral behavior. Have you ever met someone who thought drugs were destroying their mind but they did them anyway? Of course not, every drug user thinks drugs are good for them, or they’re just so goddamn special that they can handle it without any problems. Any drug user that admits it’s bad for them will be looking to cut the habit.

The rest of Charlton’s post goes on in this vein, moralizing about how people who don’t share his values should live up to them. It’s not a bad bit of writing, but it’s the men without chests problem: we castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful. There’s no more sense preaching to modern people about sin than there is about self-sacrificial heroism–their psychological conditioning to yield nothing in the pursuit of material self-interest is far too strong.

One bit of hope is that the Daily Shoah showed us how you break psychological conditioning: you make fun of it relentlessly. It cost them dearly but they have the historical distinction of being the ones who made anti-Semitism funny and cool. If you’re funny and charismatic enough, it eventually becomes easier for the audience to laugh with you than to hold on to their preconceived notions. I.e. When people are expecting the word “Holocaust” to be followed by a panic attack, but you relentlessly follow it up with a good joke, then it stops being scary. This proof of concept, that Holocaustianity political brainwashing is just an acquired trauma from public schooling and mass media that can be easily cured, is possibly as important as Mystery Method in the history of psychology.

Specific phobias also lie near the surface. Spiders, for example, are dangerous: They bite, and very rare ones might even kill you. There is an evolutionary history pushing you to feel this way, but while prepared, the specific content of phobias is not heritable. The belief that spiders are dangerous is hard to disconfirm if you avoid spiders altogether and never find out that if endured, spiders are much more scared of you than you are of them. The belief is of low power—it explains only spiders. With therapy, this fear can be extinguished almost completely—but the phobia may reappear when rekindled by other troubles.

Panic lies at the surface. It turns out merely to be a mistaken belief that your heart racing is a symptom of heart attack, or that gasping for breath is a symptom of stroke. Very little else hinges on this belief, and so it is of low power. It is quite easy to disconfirm by showing a hyperventilating patient that his symptoms are symptoms of anxiety or overbreathing, not of heart attack. It does not seem to have a strong evolutionary history, and it is not heritable. When changed by therapy or evidence, panic is almost always cured.

And just because I can’t help but drive the point home with cringe:

So that’s why humor is de facto illegal now, under the new Constitution of Civil Rights as detailed by Christopher Caldwell. Luckily, deep down white people hold laughter to be sacred because they are designed for joy. You’ll never get them to prefer the company of joyless people, economically speaking, so enforcing a totalitarian anti-humor state is far, far more expensive than resistance. Good jokes are the cure to our new state religion of resentment. Charlton again:

If one were to add-together all the (billions of?) people in the world who are either self-identified members of a resentment/ victim group; with those whose self-imposed task is to encourage resentment and the perception of victim status (in politics, civil administration, charities and NGOs, corporations, schools and colleges, the police and military, religions, health services and so on…) – then we come to a very high proportion of the people in the world who are in a chronic state of self-righteous, hence unrepented, sin.

And because it is unrepented sin that leads most people to choose damnation and to reject the gift of Jesus; I think we must conclude that the powers of darkness have been extremely successful in corrupting this world to the point that (apparently) so many will opt for Hell, and despise any Heaven that requires them to drop their resentment.

I would say that, in general, damnation requires moral inversion – that is, the reversal of values: such that evil is seen as Good and vice versa. Mass resentment is a core example of value inversion. As is the fact that modern morality – and to such a high degree – is rooted-in the conviction that the sin of resentment is actually a virtue, and indeed defines virtue. To be a member of a victim group defined by active resentment is currently actually regarded as a moral plus!

The antidote to resentment is gratitude. First gratitude to God for creation, and for loving us as a parent. Second gratitude to those who love us… usually people from our family, in the first place – but also true friends, if we have any.

    Excellent post! I think the panic part in particular resonated with me extremely strongly. I realized that I suffer from this tremendously and I think it is very powerful and biological.

    I realize I panic and have phobias regarding physical pain that make me a very timid and afraid person of living. If anyone empathizes let me know I want to start a support system for people like us!

      >I thought humor was a satan in Aeoli world. Low end of sadism and whatnot.

      Goodness no. Sadism is a form of playing with fire, but controlled fires used appropriately have civic virtue. The trouble is that sadists are, by definition, already on the wrong side of best practices. It’s like that old yarn about soldiers being close to barbarians- the less true it is, the better for operational effectiveness.

    “M0 virus” is not a thing. Might as well call it the “reality virus” or the “meaning virus”.

    >except it’s grievance-mongering spiteful mutants instead of dopamine-chasers setting the people responsible for civilization on fire (because it’s the only way they can have fun after frying their dopamine receptors with drugs).

    Also nonsensical. “Spiteful mutant” means an atypical (destructive in relation to the norm) value structure. The motivation part of this (at least) is mediated by dopaminergic processes. They are the same things, its just that the structure of the human race as a whole is such that people who gain power undergo a natural process that shifts their moral boundaries, even without doing fucked shit (a very unusual thing for a God to give its creation, a very natural thing for an animal).

    Spiteful mutants: destructive to normal society because of their nature. Often destructive to themselves as well (ie transgenderism, bug chasing, suicide rates, etc.). A bug.

    Dopamine-fueled winners: destructive to lower rungs of society because of their (developed) nature per the in-built winner effect that is standard for humans and what this does for double-standards and moral evaluation of the self. Not a bug, a feature!

    >the unwillingness to forgive and move on is the same thing as narcissism (both the psychopathic and neurotic variants).

    The ‘not moving on’ part probably, but overwillingness to forgive is just as much a sign of a self-sanctifier as the opposite. Balance.

    IMO: Practice “not forgiving, and moving on”. Practical.

    Or hey, just do what the Onion recommends if you are really bothered by an individual/group.

    >Have you ever met someone who thought drugs were destroying their mind but they did them anyway? Of course not, every drug user thinks drugs are good for them, or they’re just so goddamn special that they can handle it without any problems. Any drug user that admits it’s bad for them will be looking to cut the habit.

    1. Yes, most were on the spectrum of believing that. Especially after getting stuck seeing the “shadow people” even without drugs 2. Nope, not at all to first part. Second part: they do think the worst effects are at least less likely for them 3. Also, no.

    Dopamine demons, identity, self-hatred, socialization, drugs as death drive (not wanting to experience reality).

    Addiction is complicated.

    >Yeah, but it is “not surprising” and “understandable” that people who don’t believe they have immaterial souls don’t feel any need to protect those souls from harm. As I’ve pointed out before, it’s likely impossible for a true believer in materialism to engage in moral behavior.

    When Christians do what they do (scratch that; believe what they believe!) without the need for the goodies of heaven and the fires of hell, this may be considered. As it stands you all are structurally no different; even the ‘materialists’ are only after second-worlds! There are simply different incentives on the table, and an arbiter of what is fair play.

    (Of course, the self and its nature may be the only actual arbiter, but you get me)

      >“Spiteful mutant” means an atypical (destructive in relation to the norm) value structure. The motivation part of this (at least) is mediated by dopaminergic processes.

      Yes, but when we talk about the “motivations” of different evolutionary strategies we’re really referring to the incentive structure.

      >The ‘not moving on’ part probably, but overwillingness to forgive is just as much a sign of a self-sanctifier as the opposite. Balance.

      I agree, except I’d distinguish those as “not forgetting” versus “not forgiving”. Then again, you may not agree with my dogma that ultimately “vengeance is the Lord’s”, whereas human justice is simply a matter of good leadership.

      >Or hey, just do what the Onion recommends if you are really bothered by an individual/group.

      This has real instructional value for the Incontinent-Right.

      >When Christians do what they do (scratch that; believe what they believe!) without the need for the goodies of heaven and the fires of hell, this may be considered.

      On the contrary, Christianity is inherently selfish this way.

        And I have nothing at all against this.

        https://trueataraxiaradio.wordpress.com/2019/01/06/on-morality/

        The real problem these people have is that they do not actually understand subjectivity or value. They have been bred to be given a line, and to run with it. And so they do.

        It just happens that the line given at the moment is not satisfactory to their natures.

        I’m down to do that. Alternatively- you could just change your opinion to the correct one.

        replace “Bice” with “man of men” and your comment makes sense, because you do be refering to yourself all you have is “goytow” (LOL!) and mexican landscapers coming to eat you one day, aeolis boomer-slump is the perfect opportunity for you to pounce and push your worthless drivel long time readers can see that you inject yourself in periods of slumps and itz basically 50% your blogg now, poor aeoli is too whacked out of his mind on 6hours of cardio to see it but alats itz true hence the no more Edenism content and write ups about boomer-conjecture and warped muttmen thinking , systems and theories instead. the only way for you to gain more goytow followers is to increase your schizoid levels,how many handles are you rocking making comments under?10?, I say all of this and a lot of my comments provide solid “why” on why kwanstania is a shithole that lost to CHYNA, you have a bigger military but nobody in CHYNA is in danger of being raped and eaten by feral packs of niggers jews and the shitskin sundry. the more you act up the more you prove your 100% edenoid stereotype a something you don’t believe in, new readers should know this.
        itz true that the blergh! never was a true edenist blog so you should be happy about your little deed and contribution you are also smart enough to know all of this this and ignore it too because you just “bice=bad” and use it as leverage to make this blogg more of your own.

        “Aeoli Pera says:

        “You’re misunderstanding. Bice doesn’t believe in God, he believes in religion.” the other way around my dude if we are to go down that route, hence the heckling of a godless communist state being more Christian and capitalist than the entire western world combined where the boomerisms that once ruined it is back in style by savvy autistic internet geniouses. If muttman can convince you that I don’t believe in God (a schizoid that worships himself and his schizo-manual WINNING) then you really should stop the cardio cut out the boomers and reconnect with reality.

        If you are not in control of your own blogg then Koanic was right to call you a heretic, if you are not in control of your own mind and can be strung along by such petty sad people as muttman then I call you a heretic too.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          >the other way around my dude if we are to go down that route

          Let’s go down that route. Hypothetically, let’s say Christ were to save your soul and doom your nation. Would you choose that kind of salvation?

          • bicebicebice says:

            “Hypothetically, let’s say Christ were to save your soul and doom your nation. Would you choose that kind of salvation?” a funny thing to say coming from an american in the year 2020 but sure, everyone lives in that reality, the waxing and waning of lets-say-example swedish borders of 1km that year or grossing +10 next year, completely disappearing but then (again) reappearing under another name all under the dna evidence of continued existance fore more than +40k years… landmass doesn’t go to heaven.

            Not sure if a troll question or affect, Christ has already saved my soul and damned my “nation” many times over throughout time. Isn’t this obvious common sense to everyone? Do you think I go down with the ship to hell if every mm² isn’t “among the angels” ?!?

            I don’t think you understand what you wrote or the complications of it. Study that for 10hours and teach yourself, obviously you are,still, smarter than beeing muttmans stooge.

              Most of which, on the blog at least, looks like bitching at him over little things I don’t agree completely with. Not exactly ideal persuasion.

              He’s not my stooge, he’s my friend.
