    totally agree. I don't think this is as impossible as it seems. we established and enforce standards of moral responsibility in criminal culpability all the time, why can't we do it in this area. maybe the answer is more conspiratorial :)

    I totally get your point. I also appreciate the idea that if I can see it in others it is probably in me... I can definitely see myself repeating old patterns... even ones I thought I was past :)

    it's tough because you got to have empathy for someone who's born into something like that and is obviously carrying some guilt about taking as long as he did to get out.

    thanks. This is a super interesting point so I'm glad you brought it up right away. It does seem like we have encountered skeptiko guests who swap one cultish way for another :) you have to wonder if some of us are just programed / predestined / susceptible to certain thought patterns.

    agreed. The other distinction he's making... and I think it's really really important but subtle... is that our concept of our individuality is largely a misconception of the events of our life. it's like thinking that the guy who cut you off on the freeway is it total left hand pather jerk...

    I think I understand where you're coming from... and that's how I took it, an "operation formula." I'm just not convinced it's a very good one... particularly because I don't agree with the black / White dichotomy he posits. for example, on the left hand side I'm not convinced that he's...

    how do you understand the Michael Aquino case/history/reality as it relates to LHP? ( I think obscures rather than clarifies) BTW I'm sure Debbie Nathan is a fan :) ===== https://exposinginfragard.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-case-against-michael-aquino-satanic.html The 'Conspiracy' Against...

    have you looked into Michael Aquino? He's exactly the kind of guy that makes it hard to find any discernment among left-hand pathers.
