  •  Not all abused children become authoritarian. (4+ / 0-)

    Many grow up to be vehemently anti-violence.

    They do tend to end up on the far extreme though. I'll concede that. Nothing "moderate" about their insticts to sympathize with vulnerable people and iften critters too.

    But you really should avoid smearing ALL adult abused children. They've been through quite enough.

      More insensitivity based upon ignorance, rather than malice, I think.  In the world of insensitive acts, not so bad.

      I mean, I didn't like it, but I don't feel he did something wrong to me personally.

      I loathe authoritarians with an intensity that cannot be described.  I hate violence, cannot understand how Obama cannot get out of Afghanistan, and yes, I will fiercely defend any soul who is being abused.  My whole political philosophy is based upon helping the little people.

      I cannot tell you incredibly hard it has all been.  Worst of all was the lying and denial, so much would have been different if only the truth was available to me.  I lost decades in the wilderness from all this.

        The poster is reading something into what I said that wasn't there.

        Childrearing is the single largest factor in determining psychosocial group dynamics.  Abused children will more often than not grow up to become abusive adults
        I was very precise in what I wrote and it was in no way insensitive or ignorant.

        This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: [http://www.myspace.com/beetwasher]

      I didn't smear all of anyone.

        I'll try to walk you through it.

        You said this:

        Abused children become authoritarians.
        And I responded to THAT sentence. I didn't address your statement about child abusers because the diary is about Malken, Hannity and their ilk -- that is, authoritarians.

        You didn't qualify. You didn't dilute. You didn't say "many, most, some, often, frequently," or offer any other qualifiers.

        You said this:

        Abused children become authoritarians.
        I don't deal with authoritarians, and you have proven yourself one, as you quickly toss out snide comments unwilling to even glance back at your comment and see if perhaps that you may have posted what I objected to.

        So I'm done here.

        But you did correct paradox just above this comment, and you were wrong. You owe him/her an apology.

        •  LOL! Ok, You Want To Be Offended, Be Offended (0+ / 0-)

          The context of what I said is clear to anyone who cares to comprehend what they read and your passive aggressive posture is noted. Have fun with your greiveance! And oh, I don't think you speak for Paradox.
