About Me

Brutal Antipathy is a pseudonym for a blogger and forum debate enthusiast whose views often rest well outside of social baseline. A self confirmed atheist, misanthropist, and sadist, his commentary ranges from parched textbook facts to satire and sarcasm. He is a proponent of free speech and individual liberty even when these are taken to excess. His political views shift between lower case libertarian and enlightened despotism depending on the level of contempt he is feeling for his fellow humans at any given moment. His reading interests include history, general science, archaeology, comparative religion, psychology, & sociology. Other interests and hobbies include practicing various crafts, torturing his slave, blogging, playing with his dogs, collecting antiques, role playing & tactical simulation games, renaissance fairs, and cheerfully making other people miserable by holding up a mirror of their shortcomings and repeatedly bashing them in the face with it. L is the owned slave of BA. She basically has the same interests and views as her owner except in music.

Problems with Internal Enslavement

The idea of Internal Enslavement, or IE, has always amused me. While IE does serve a very good purpose, it cannot stand alone. The proponents of IE are under the impression that a state of slavery can be created through mental mechanisms alone. There is not a single shred of psychological or historical evidence to bolster this delusion, and considerable counter evidence to discard it, but being the sheeple that they are, they follow the herd and continue to pretend that IE not only closely approximates slavery, but that it actually is slavery.
