THE EYE-ROLLING HYSTERIA IN ALL HISTORY OF VAINLY-SUPPRESSED SHAME
On the Great Moral Problem of Personal Truthfulness of Members of ‘Elites’ to Themselves
by Bodwyn Wook
The great moral problem for the anachronistic Late Modern credentialled orders that still ‘think’ of themselves as effective & worthy honestiores is that they are so insulated on all sides by stale self-referential ‘peer group’ gibble-gabble.
Objectively speaking, to the Postmodern historian, this is perhaps the most dire consequence of their long-ago conditioning, or ‘education’, in youth that no single one of them as a rule ever may be expected to break out of the collective trance.
And, who ever may be blamed for resorting to whatever dishonesty in order to never have to face up to it as an actual moral adult & admit the bitter & sometimes indeed irredemptible fact that, yes, I have been a COMPLETE arsehole?
Still worse, one trammelled by such intense upwelling shame & its consequent frantic, frantic eye-rolling denial then REMAINS a scapegoat jacksey for all of the inferiority-feeling…of their peers.
This is what leads in History to the well-known regular pattern of abandonment by soi-disant ‘elites’ of one of their own, for instance the hideous enantiodromia that overcame Stanley Baldwin — albeit with so much less reason.
Indeed, Old Churchill was very wrong to have said — of Stanley Baldwin — ‘it would have been better if he never lived’.
