Liberals Exhibit a Pathology of Deception


How do I conclude liberalism is a pathology based on deception?

After being reminded about the TV series Columbo in 2011, I begin asking detective style questions to try to understand why liberals were posting peculiar patterns of debate I had been seeing in thousands of social media and live debates. It was NOT stupidity, like many people claimed. Why do they strongly avoid all supporting evidence for liberal policy failure and conservative policy success?

I first studied psychology articles about how to catch people being dishonest, and how to expose people, the “tell” articles of deception.

Then, I watched a lot of TV detective shows to see what actors use to expose deceitful actors in guilty roles. These “tells” would be the things everyday people understand, like behavior markers poker players watch for in opponents. And they would HAVE to be ”normal” because actors and writers are making a movie script for everyday people. (Many liberals like to mock the movie industry reference – but it is fake mockery, and they know it. It is critical an actor exhibits typical behaviors, or else the audience would be lost. Duh.)

Finally, I ran my list of tactics of deception behavior past some detectives I know.

Using three sources of information, completely independent, the same answers were consistent about how to spot deceptive behaviors. There are 11 universal tactics humans employ.

Then I spent two years asking liberals questions to see why they were answering the way they were. I begin to see the brilliant liberals exhibit the same evasive behaviors as far less educated liberals – common points of appearance of evasions, insults, and “disappearing” from debates at the same times – always when it came time to ponder pro-conservative ideas – and after I let them say their ideas first and displayed empathy to them, pleasing them immensely. Consistently, they didn’t have time or interest in Socratic, conservative logic or reason when it began to expose “best practices” were conservative ideas. They were not “open minded” as they claimed – exactly the opposite.

Even rather modestly smart people were suddenly genii about liberal policy, but begin to “act” stupid about conservative policy: Both brilliant college graduates, and high school educated liberal opponents exhibited the same “black out” of stupidity and ignorance when common Socratic justifications for conservative policy – for the Constitution itself – were presented.

Due to the multitude of deception markers liberals exhibited, not just 1, this pointed to fake stupidity being employed actively in debate, by liberals. They are hiding truth, consistently.
