Skip to comments.MENSA Syndrome (Something to think about)
Posted on 07/22/2010 6:59:54 AM PDT by MestaMachine
Every here and there, I start out to answer a post on a specific thread with a sort of dry and often tongue-in-cheek response to the topic. This started out being such a response to a thread on the Journolist contributor who said she would "laugh like a maniac" while watching Rush Limbaugh die.
Originally, it was going to be short and sweet comparing those on Journolist to a MENSA elite called Zero's Zombies. I made up a mental illness.
The more I typed, the more I changed it and it started taking on a life of its own.
Suddenly, I realized it really wasn't funny anymore. The more I edited it, the more plausible it became.
The more you realize that children are today, right now, being taught that nothing they think or do is ever REALLY wrong or bad or sinful, the more this makes me shudder. Our kids are being prevented from thinking independently. They are being "protected" from our morals and values and being told that what WE think, say, or value is wrong. "Me" counts and ONLY ME counts in this world.
They are being taught lies are facts and lies become their truths. They think they are creating a society of conformists wherein everyone is "equal" and that they are ALL little geniuses in their own right. But is that what the real result of this will be?
I don't think so. If no one ever believes they are wrong, how will anyone know what is right? If everyone is the "same," how will those who think differently finally express their differences when they see them? Worse, how will those differences manifest themselves and how will those who are different be treated?
We are tipping into chaos. I don't know how to stop it.
Anyway, this is what my "short" post ended up as.
Open to comments and ideas...and thanks for reading.
Extreme degenerative brain disease
Profound Neural dysfunction
Erroneous belief that one is somehow more superior to all others because they were mistakenly programmed by those who equate POTENTIAL VS ACTUAL knowledge and wisdom to IQ scores to believe they are absolute in their superiority.
This causes repeated instances of *Massive Extreme Neural Synapses Abuse* by those seeking to act on this unprovable, even dangerous, doctrine. Those who become infected create disonnance in their thinking patterns by becoming so overconfidant in their own abilities that they rationalize virtually everything they THINK to conform with what they BELIEVE and they can never once accept they might be wrong about anything, ever. Even the mere suggestion of fallibility to an infected person often results in outbursts of uncontrolled verbal rage and quite possibly, violence.
Prolonged exposure of the mind to this bombardment of illogical thought processes results in brain's inability to distinguish rational from irrational, reality from fantasy, truth from lies.
Ultimate Danger of MENSA Syndrome
Crosses all racial, ethnic, and religious lines.
Because onset is slow to recognize, a multitude of symptoms related to other neurological and pathological diseases might present themselves. These people are often diagnosed as sociopaths, psychopaths, narcissists, and various subcatagories or a combination of all of them...often by those who are also infected.
The exponential spread of MENSA Syndrome is now a pandemic.
Disease is unrecognized by, or unrecognizable to, those who are infected.
They believe they are "normal" and seek out others with the same traits.
Carriers of the illness will stop at nothing to inflict themselves on others.
Infected individuals are fraught with delusions of grandeur, see themselves as infallible geniuses, and will attempt to impose their view of reality on anyone they consider inferior.
Highly contagious and spread in various ways.
Varies with Age
Children are most highly susceptible
Might alter DNA
Parents with MENSA Syndrome might produce a child at high risk for the syndrome, however rescue might be impossible since the illness is unrecognized by those who have it.
Long term prognosis
Result of unrestrained contagion
World War Z
Jesus Christ is the answer.
I don’t think you understand the question.
Nornin’, null. I am serious. This started out as a joke.
Me too. I have though roughly along the same lines, but in a much less formal and codified fashion.
Upon contemplation I might be able to add a minuscule bit or to to what you’ve said, but on first blush, you nailed it.
(The reference to World War Z is a nice touch)...
Take a course in Corrective Phrenology. Works wonders for those afflicted with your MENSA syndrome. While at first the effects may seem palliative, repeated courses of treatment invariably yield acceptable results.
We are repeating history from 70 - 80 years ago. Unfortunatelu, there are always some that want to be the “master race”, and also there are enough useful idiots that help them along. We are fast approaching one of your listed results, or both.
I don’t know that a wood shampoo would help the condition to any measurable degree.
It would be rather *satisfying* though...
BTW, love the redundancy in your screen name. It takes brilliance to do that sort of thing, don’tchaknow.
We are Borg
We are Mensa
And still no citizens are building the necessary guillotines ...
You should be able to pick one up for relatively cheap.
Maybe this is actually the problem after all. They have never figured out what causes Asperger’s. I don’t know if you were trying to be witty or not, but think about it. Once you believe that you are superior to everyone and everything, the first thing to go is empathy.
The idea that the woman on the Journolist thread could give such a degenerate, cold-blooded description of another human being in agony and celebrate it is enough to chill the blood.
Think about it.
