Every thing you said is true. I’m pleading with people to see that their pathology is deeper than you imagine. When Julie Ruth writes about white evangelical Christian moral hierarchy, she explains that it has the following order: God over man, man over woman, white over people of color, rich over poor, abled over disabled, etc.
This moral hierarchy is so rigid that not only will it elect racists. Not only that it will elect pedophiles. But it would will elect people who commit treason. We see that going on right before our eyes and these people do not care.
This morality is toxic enough that it would be the one to turn on poor people despite their God’s commandments about the poor. The morality is toxic enough for them to turn on their own family members. I don’t just mean gay family members. My parents were abandoned by their families for being mentally ill.
George Lakoff called conservative politics the strict father model, and that fits traditional conservative politics. But it can cross a line.
I am calling this the psychopathic parent model of politics. He does not have empathy. He does not experience guilt. He meets his own needs without regard for the negative impact on others. He has a persecution complex. Andrew Jackson. Donald Trump. Roy Moore. Yeah, George Lakoff, a nurturing parent and strict father model are for a healthy society. We just aren’t that anymore.
