After Columbine and the Batman killer, another middle class nerd goes on the rampage:

Quote :
School gunman Adam Lanza ‘a loner’ and ‘one of the goths’

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

DISTURBED Adam Lanza has been described as a loner who played computer games.

Adam Lanza killed his mother at their home in a well-off part of Connecticut before driving her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School armed with three weapons and gunning down 27 people including 20 children.

Lanza has been described as a "goth" a "loner" and a "genius" as cops try to work out a motive for the bloodbath.

Officials have also said the 20-year-old may have suffered from a personality disorder.

Lanza, who had had no criminal history, lived with his mother Nancy, who he gunned down at their home.

His aunt said her nephew was raised by kind, nurturing parents who would not have hesitated to seek mental help for him if he needed it.

Marsha Lanza said she was close with Adam Lanza’s mother and sent her a Facebook message on Friday morning asking how she was doing. Nancy Lanza never responded.

Marsha Lanza described Nancy as a good mother and kind-hearted.

Catherine Urso, who was attending a vigil Friday evening in Newtown, Connecticut, said her college-age son knew the killer and remembered him for his alternative style.

“He just said he was very thin, very remote and was one of the goths,” she said.

Adam Lanza belonged to a technology club at Newtown High School that held computer gaming parties.

Gloria Milas, whose son Joshua was in the club with Lanza, hosted one of the parties once.

She rembembered Adam's elder brother Ryan saying at one meeting: "“My brother has always been a nerd,” and added “he still wears a pocket protector”.

Joshua Milas, who graduated from Newtown High School in 2009, said Lanza was generally a happy person but that he hadn’t seen him in a few years.

“We would hang out, and he was a good kid. He was smart,” Joshua Milas said. “He was probably one of the smartest kids I know. He was probably a genius.”

Is this weakness avenging itself upon the world?

The shooting itself is irrelevant. But it's being used as a pretext for gun control, disarming the populace.

In my college, in my experience with the kids there, the extroverted ones are those with the weaker character who crave attention and validation from the others.
Because I am so much older than them, I have noticed that my indifference towards them in general has actually hurt their feelings. Something of their self-worth hinged upon my reaction to their social advances. But they're mostly teenagers. They'll grow out of it.

On the other hand extroversion is necessary for the domineering personality. He must be able to communicate readily with the other and make his Will known. This requires an ability to meet and overcome social resistances. An introvert usually is in solitude as an escape. The escape of an invalid. Not at all necessarily masculine. It is actually more of a feminine archetype to be subdued and reserved; passive in the face of others.

There was one girl in my college, I refer to her as the Whorish One mentally, who dominates the other kids through first charming them with attention and flattery. She attempts to shock by affecting an exaggerated sexuality. One day, she asked me to walk her back into the city because the bus was delayed. The whole time she spent telling me how she wanted to be a porn-star and how sexually adventurous and experienced she was. How many times she'd been in trouble with the police and so on. She even pointed out to me, as we were passing, a young man who was being searched by the police, that she knew and who supplied her with drugs. She also, at my prompting, made orgasm noises at the passersby.
She was a crazy bitch. And I kept clear of her after that.
But she was extroverted in that way, which was her way of impressing and therefore influencing others. And it worked. With the other kids.

Extrovert:
A psychological disposition seeking self in otherness.
It can be thought of as being representative of a more primitive sense of self, where, like animals, the fulfillment of need is governed by outwardly focused senses.
In such cases the identity sought by the mind is but a reflection of public opinion, popular decree being a dominating factor.

For this reason such minds want to impress others, so as to gain that positive feedback that enlarges their self-esteem.


Introvert:
A psychological disposition seeking self inwardly, through introspection or self-knowledge.
It is a product of an emerging self-consciousness, which is consciousness turned inward, or experiencing self from the vantage point of a detached bystander.
Sometimes it can be the consequence of a (re)action to external phenomena which threaten the mind forcing it to hide in its own imagination. An extreme of this might be considered solipsism: the denouncement of the world as being the total product of self.

Introspection, sometimes taking on the method of meditation, is a form of looking at the past, the sum of which is what identity truly is.
The study of self, in the immediate, becomes an analysis of the manifestations of this past, a deciphering of the physical so as to determine and understand the past, and so one’s own self.

Such mind usually become more discriminating as self-knowledge imposes a more clear concept of similarity and distinction.

I would say I lean more towards the introverted type, but I wouldn't consider it a weakness. Among my supposed peers in college I am rather indifferent and I find their needs and craving for attention, to make their wills known so to speak to be rather unimpressive. When I do not speak, I simply choose not to because making my will known to others isn't always beneficial to me.

Do you really choose not to speak? Or do you assess the likely resistance from the other and surrender to the threat that that represents? Do you "decide" that the potential rewards of action are not worth the possible losses you suspect you will face if you put yourself at risk in a contest of wills?

If you neglect your will as it pertains to others then you expose that weakness to the exploitation of others. It's not a matter of choice.

When the price of reproduction becomes too high males try to curb the cost by controlling the resource he requires to meet a need.

A case on point:
StarDusk

Here we see sour-graping trying to make the grapes undesirable so as to make its own incapacity less noticeable.
This is ironic given that this very same individual is also an advocate of "freedom" and against Paternalism.
In essence he supports the very conditions that cause his predicament.

When an excluded from the gene-pool male feels inadequate or incapable of paying the inflated price for access to female wombs he inevitably settles for an alternative; when genetic reproduction is unapproachable he goes for memetic reproduction.
He then turns to his own kind, the mind closer to his own nature, to seed.

A form of mind-fucking with homosexual connotations.
This, too, is an aspect of feminization.
The beta-males, the excluded males, the males unable to justify the possible cost in relation to the potential
benefit, will go for the easier path (path-of-least-resistance) and fertilize another male; one more effete, weaker, younger.

Since this fertilization is impossible in the material, genetic, sense, he goes for the abstraction, the idea, the memetic alternative.

Masculine energy, having no other outlet besides a useless, distracting pornography, goes for the only other option.
In this case homosexuality and the levelling of sexual types satisfy the motive, just as it does with feminism.
This is how the MRA movement reveals itself as a mirroring of feminist strategies.

The irony is that these individuals defend the very principles that create their predicament, forcing
them to turn away from nature, the female being a natural agency, and from reproduction, awaiting some technological future utopia where reproduction, using the natural methods is a thing of the past.

Secular Humanism now projects paradise as a coming future.

What, that old piece of filth?
That badly written, typo infected, requiring much more to be dressed in, crap, is still, I'm afraid, there.

Who shall forgive me first, for its simplicity?

I wanted to make it more complex, for the more discrimianting literati, presenting it as an insult against god...but my ego did not allow it, and my mnid is nourished with the edumucation of a mediocre highschool.
