I have a habit I’ve long practiced of, after reading a book and highlighting with 3M flags various passages, returning to those passages and transcribing them to Word files. My theory is that anything worthwhile in a book will catch my attention but not sink in, as too much information passes before my eyes while reading. On second visit, and reading the flagged passages aloud (using Dragon Naturally Speaking, a software program), I feel I have a better grasp and memory of it.
I started doing this years ago by hand, a tedious process that would leave me drained. Then a commenter in a private email mentioned the software. It is a godsend.
I read Political Ponerology by Andrew Lobaczewski, flagged many passages, and then set it aside as I went off for my various surgeries, now complete. I set about to transcribe those passages some time back, and then yesterday sat down to complete the process. I had it in mind that Lobaczewski could explain the nature of the forces that have taken control of our world now, both via the Climatistas and Covidians. I think he does that, but his writing can be dense-packed, and even on second reading and transcription, I am not sure I grasped it.
Nonetheless, I am offering the rather long passage below the fold as something that really caught my eye today. I am thinking that if you read it and then insert “virologist” for “psychiatrist” and “virology” for “psychiatry”, that we will have a good notion of how that profession ended up being so corrupt. This would also apply to “climatology,” but that field is comprised of so many different disciplines (none of which are grasped by Climatistas) that it is better just to stick to virology.
(And anyway, Lobaczewski’s talk about how psychopaths are not, usually, the brightest lights on the Christmas tree, reminded me of Al Gore, whose two weakest subjects at Harvard (where he was a legacy) were science and math. Nonetheless, we are told by Wikipedia, Gore became and avid reader who “fell in love with scientific and mathematical theories.” I have no idea what that means, but have the impression on reading that passage and about his educational years that people were covering for his sorry ass. This would fit in with Lobaczewski’s thesis below,)
I warn you, Lobaczewski does not write for casual readers. Nonetheless, enjoy his writing below. (His first paragraph refers to his time in Poland when it was under domination by the Soviet Union. Thus references to meetings and’ the party.’)
