Why liberals insist on insane dogma

20 06 12 - 07:55

It has often amazed me how liberals will congregate and meme-repeat certain dogmas in a Soviet style. It is as if they are using overlapping confirmation biases to re-affirm what they "believe." The less realistic the dogma, the more this intensifies. Here's one possible reason why:


Far-fetched tales of West African riches strike most as comical. Our analysis suggests that is an advantage to the attacker, not a disadvantage. Since his attack has a low density of victims the Nigerian scammer has an over-riding need to reduce false positives. By sending an email that repels all but the most gullible the scammer gets the most promising marks to self-select, and tilts the true to false positive ratio in his favor. - Microsoft Research


The goal of liberal dogma is to build a crowd, not attract everyone (although liberals claim otherwise). Thus their first filter is to separate the credulous, isolate them and confuse them, and force them into the Pod People by making them repeat insane and unrealistic stuff until they believe it. But the first step is finding likely victims.

There seems to be a lot more atheists and people of secular thought who identify themselves as liberal. Doesn't this make them less credulous than those with blind religious faith? What about the slavish devotion a lot of people on the right hold to religion and its dogma? What about the liberals who believe in equal rights but not that all men are equal?

The conclusion that liberals are credulous is built on very shaky implicit premises here. Franny - 21-06-’12 18:38
