Ayn Rand was a crusty cunt. I feel bad for anyone who agrees with that bullshit. You are part of an organism you fucking idiot. Accept that, you unexceptional blowhard.

StanleyPain - 2012-06-27

And the punchline to this video is that, in it, this guy manifests many of the classic symptoms of anti-social personality disorder.

James Woods - 2012-06-27

Sociopathy is the new compassion. This kid probably has the capacity for empathy, he's just buried it way down deep in hopes to make something of himself like Gordon Ramsey, Steve Jarbs, Donald Trump or Mark Zuckerberg. He won't though, and he'll be aaaaall aloooooone, and the videos will get better and better.

I'm supposed to be upset because a "lack of empathy" is used to lock people up?

I'm sorry. I just can't feel sorry for those people.

STABFACE - 2012-06-26

It goes without saying that his words are dumb, but I can't get past his dirty, ill-fitting black blazer. Or the dirt-stache. He looks and sounds like a jug-band version of Justin Long.

Koda Maja - 2012-06-26

My god, what a terrible blazer. How can something be too large, but also have arms that are far too short?

It's past time someone introduced a "punchable preview image" tag.

excellent misuse/recontextualization of Nietzschean philosophy, among other wonderful fallacies.

really looking forward to seeing how the non empathetic, independent, individual society will turn out in reality. this guy would certainly be among the princes and kings.

poorwill - 2012-06-26

Nietzsche was a big psychology fan too. He was also Mr. Empathy when you get past his scary bluffing and posturing, unlike Rand and this guy who are pernicious twits.

That can't be right. Next thing you know you'll be telling me Jonathan Swift didn't really think people should eat Irish children.

I'd like to lock this guy and Icycalm in the same room.

memedumpster - 2012-06-26

The first 18 seconds are five stars. I think I know what will save the economy, a revenge based currency. How many days of cease fire would turning this person over to the Taliban be worth? I bet we could get a week. Or two days of cease fire and so many kilos of various textiles.

I bet you could get an oil well for Dick Cheney, but there needs to be an "execution must last until first 1000 barrels are filled" clause in case they want to renegotiate when the joy ends.

It's not negotiating with terrorists, it's fighting them with commerce.

What do you mean I should care who lives and dies?

WHO WANTS DESSERT - 2012-06-26

He's a douche but psychology isn't a science.

It's still more legit than economics, at least.

memedumpster - 2012-06-26

Statistical sciences are sciences, unless you happen to have a formula that can predict a single neutron's decay inside a compound to the second, in which case turn in your flying saucer and surrender our women.

simon666 - 2012-06-27

I think Foucault got it right when he said the human sciences (the humanities) are not sciences at all because definition they take for man is fundamentally unstable, that man is both subject and object.

Jet Bin Fever - 2012-06-27

oh boy, here come the ol' social sciences aren't science arguments again. "Hard" sciences are hardly that. The closer you get to nailing anything down the further it slips away. There is always uncertainty, like memedumpster said so well.

poorwill - 2012-06-27

Psychology is mostly seen as soft science cos psychology is fucking hard.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2012-06-27

I think it depends a lot on what one thinks of when talking psychology. Some psych courses are more biological in nature, where they look at things like the moon illusion (why we perceive the moon to be larger when it's near the horizon) or how we learn to spot cues of three dimensions in 2D drawings/pictures. There's also the "stimulate the brain with X and usually you get Y," both via chemical and behavioral processes.

The psychology a lot of people think about is therapy, which is, indeed, damn hard, since people are unreliable witnesses, especially to their own experiences and self-reflection coupled with the skill (or lack thereof) in diagnosis. Just like nearly everyone claims to have had a bad teacher (when the fault could be their own stupidity), a lot of people have either had a bad therapy experience or think they're immune from such Jedi Mind Tricks.

Can a person's behavior be predicted accurately down to the finest detail? Unless they're autistic, probably not. Can they diagnose fairly well-documented behaviors resulting from chemical or experiential sources? A lot of the time, sure.

WHO WANTS DESSERT - 2012-06-27

If psychology is a science then how come you can't apply the scientific method to it*?

*With the exception of some neurobiological psychology, but even then it's more under the umbrella of Biology and the inherent complexities of human beings make it pretty fucking hard to quantify

memedumpster - 2012-06-27

The scientific method is used all the time in psychology. It's not written in Unreal Script and only compatible with a GeForce capable laboratory. It's more flexible than that.

You're coming off as kind of Christian Sciencey, using terms out of place.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2012-06-27

Psychology does plenty of predicting based on actual peer-reviewed data. One really simple example: If you were beaten as a kid, you're more likely to beat your own kids.

Oscar Wildcat - 2012-06-26

I'm guessing the mother of this rant is that cute Psych. major who inserted her DSM-IV deep into this guy's rectum in lieu of a first date.

kingofthenothing - 2012-06-26

The next Glenn Beck, folks.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2012-06-26

"Oh, yeah? Well if you're so Randian... THEN EAT THIS KITTEN!"

Guess we shouldn't tell him that he probably wouldn't have been allowed at the grilled cheese counter with all the other Ayn Rand elites.

Riskbreaker - 2012-06-27

Psychology phobia is more common from what you could imagine.

jangbones - 2012-06-29

the first two minutes of this is a confused and inpenetrable introduction for the rest of the video, including apologies for some of the upcoming content

people who waste time and start their videos by explaining a bunch of crap before they get to their content usually have nothing to say and no content to get to

also, this dude conflates vocabulary with content, and is as punchable as Tucker Carlson
