() In The Authoritarian Specter, the Harvard social scientist Robert Altemeyer asked, “Is the ‘authoritarian on the left’ like the Loch Ness Monster: an occasional shadow, but no monster?”

Altemeyer is the man who in 1981 devised the Right-Wing Authoritarianism (RWA) scale, a test widely used to measure this personality and ideological variable. Social scientists generally report that right-wing authoritarians are conformists who obey established authorities, adhere to conventional social norms, and are hostile to people who flout both. Using such tests, they have argued that conservatives have a higher need for structure, lower attributional complexity, lower openness to experience, and higher perceptions of threat than do liberals—basically, that conservatives are mentally and socially rigid.

Now a new study in the journal Political Psychology claims that left-wing authoritarianism is no mere shadow.

My Commentary: They not only exist, but often score higher on the authoritarian scale than their conservative counterparts.

Compartmentalization is the Only Way for Statheists to Maintain the Illusion of “Logic”

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “I Fucking Hate Government,” which I originally posted to my own wall in August of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, while adding a commentary…

“Second Amendment protects us
We need police to protect us
(Proud Conservative)
Cops are evil and racist
You don’t need a gun because you have the police
(Proud Liberal)”

My Commentary: Compartmentalization: the only way for Statheists to maintain the illusion of “logic.”

My Commentary: Political parasitism.
