VivatEuropa sent me this excellent video below.
Its with an Italian psychiatrist discussing what is going on in Italy and across the West.
Stones Are Grey
The video meshes well with an evolution in my thinking I’ve seen over the last few months. Not a huge mind you but a very slight pivot, which is that the only way to really frame progressivism from a metapolitical perspective is just to acknowledge it for what it is- mental illness.
Progressivism as we see in the West today is nothing but collective insanity or mental illness, and even engaging in language which implies that discussion of it is a political debate is counter-productive, because it can’t even be called that.
Now, it might seem contradictory to say this but I do think that the ‘Jordan Peterson approach’ of finding common ground and not making one’s opponent feel stupid can be quite successful and is good, but at the same time I think that things like mass-Muslim immigration, the current ‘transgender movement’, and everything else, can only properly be regarded as insanity, and we should relate to those who possess it with the same sympathy yet firmness of resolve that we do the schizophrenic or otherwise mentally ill.
I think the two approaches can be complimentary if done right.
Again, here is the interview with the Italian psychiatrist:
And here is an excellent video by Charisma On Command about Dr. Peterson – also a psychiatrist (or psychologist?) if I remember right:
Editor’s Note: These ‘Charisma On Command’ folks are VERY talented. Great channel.
