Anti-nationalism is a dangerous socio-psychological culture.

Anti-nationalism is a dangerous socio-psychological culture.

Anti-nationalism smacks of ingratitude but more than that it is a dangerous socio-psychological culture of hatred and crime which the government must deal with firmly.-why?

Victim hood projection as an ideology, as a favorite past time and as a business reflects a very dangerous psychological condition which may lead to greater crimes.

This is not about politics this is about inflated ego centric individual psychological state leading to deflate social harmony to gain individual dividends.

Why some politicians/ political figures who ride on some populist movements based on victim hood projection and constantly look for creating trouble or plant themselves desperately for publicity by sensationalizing individual events into social problems and resort to irrational broadcasting of victimhood and blame game to gain notorious publicity.

They get further encouraged if they happened to enjoy some social status and get media support. So in a way the media is a culprit because it aids and abets them.

When or can they ever move on to responsible behavior? Accountability to the post they hold?  

Can a person with personal psychological problem be made to hold a very powerful post? What has happened in cases in the past?

Why is it dangerous?        

Should we wait for more dangerous consequences to manifest and then cry over atrocities?

Can we allow open sponsors of terrorism and anti-national and anti-human activities to hold high offices? Are there no legal remedies or constitutional provisions to check these elements?  Or are we going to be silent spectators to these atrocities in the name of democratic rights or media manipulations?

I am not referring to any individual CM or any particular media house.


“According to psychologists, dictators are the individuals whose narcissism is so extreme and grandiose that they exist in a kind of splendid isolation in which the creation of the grandiose self takes precedence over legal, moral or interpersonal commitments.

While the psychopath gives no real affection, he is quite capable of inspiring affection of sometimes fanatical degree in others.
Indeed, he has no genuine human qualities, but opportunistically adapts himself to any situation.

This is not a normal type of behavior we need to adjust ourselves to, but purely an opportunistic trick” - See more at:

“It is in the realm of politics that the psychopath is at his worst.

While seemingly in full possession of his political ability, the psychopathic leader demonstrates an inability to comprehend the meaning and significance of his own faults. This is why he never tries to remedy the faults; instead he punishes critics. The psychopath dictator is often astounded to find that people are upset by his exploits, as acknowledged by some enthroned despots. Although he knows intellectually what punishment is decreed for certain crimes, when caught for the same crimes, he puts up elaborate rationalisations and defences, and seems surprised when he is actually punished, as seen in Saddam’s process”.

“This is where the blame process kicks in, instead of taking responsibility for his/her action that had unintended consequences, the blamer begins to find reasons why he/she should be excused from the repercussions. Repercussions that the blamer doesn't believe he/she 'deserved.' (Being judgmental of both self and others is common among blamers). Obviously the blamer will blame the driver ... let's say for speeding, e.g. If he hadn't been speeding he could have avoided hitting the blamer. Another way the blamer commonly will try to avoid taking responsibility for unpleasant results is by telling him/herself something along the lines of "If my boss wasn't such a nagger about being back from lunch on time I wouldn't have had to try to cross the street." Somehow magically it becomes the bosses fault that the blamer got hit by a car.
But here is where things get squishy, although avoiding external repercussions would appear to be the motive (e.g. trying to blame the driver for insurance purposes), the main goal of blaming others is to protect not just one's own emotions or ego, but apparently one's philosophy. And that is where this behavior becomes both self-reinforcing and self-perpetuating.”

“According to Terry Burnham "...our brains, like our bodies, reflect the world of our ancestors. Our lizard brains are pattern-seeking, backwards-looking systems that allowed us to forage for food and repeat successful behaviors. This system helped our ancestors survive and reproduce ... (3)."
In short, when confronted with a situation, we tend to look into our 'memory' to find an answer. It is the combination of memory/pattern and imagination that creates fear. We see a pattern we adjudge 'bad,' imagine the outcome and we fear it coming to pass. When combined with action appropriate to the incoming data you get positive results.”

All authorities vested with powers to check the more probable crimes and destructions would be better advised to read

“In a recent letter from a reader, I was asked to write an article about something she had read:

"There are two types of people one that blames someone else for everything that ever happened to them, good or bad; one blames oneself for everything! If the self-blamers get sick, it must be something they did or didn't do. If they were disliked, it was their fault. They take the blame for everything!"
First, these are not "two types of people." They are ways of responding to frustration. When people cannot reach desired goals, they get frustrated. In trying to find the reason for their frustration, some people are more likely to focus blame on others, and some tend to focus blame on themselves. However, there are more than two options in assigning blame.”
