The interview proceeded as planned. About ten minutes in, Bill Gates was getting ready to go. But he made good on his promise, politely broke in and said to the young man, "Hey Jack, didn't want to interrupt. Wonderful seeing you again."
The young man said, "Gates! Piss off. I'm in a meeting."Thanks to Rightwing News.
Many in the West are so caught up in this personality disorder as weltanschauung, this slagging of the superiour, that we got Obama as president. This affectation shows up in multiculturalism, in philobarbarism, in pacifism, in ordinary social relations nearly everywhere. Unless it's an idealisation of "Other" it must be bad. And to prove ones good, all the better to dump on all that most take as the good in the first place. Ugly and evil behaviour? Well, to be sophisticated, to show how that is really, for the benefit of the stupid who need to be put in their proper places, those who are sophisticated and smart, unlike stupid people who just don't like disgusting and evil, then refer to cultural relativism. Or dump on Sarah Palin and vote, be known to vote, for Obama. Trash all the good to show how one is cool and smart.
I don't know the psychological term for this. Please help me out.
