"The year began with an oddly specific medical diagnosis...academics at the University of York were rendered fretful and distraught by an image...'the most traumatic thing I have ever experienced'...outrage at neighbours who cleared the snow from her driveway...an emotional tailspin triggered by a vaccination form...Scary Mommy contributors, among whom the use of mood stabilisers seems remarkably common...bread consumption and homicidal fantasies..."

I sense a pattern. Apropos of this, Powerline links to an article at the New York Times about two academic papers pondering why surveys show that conservatives are happier than liberals:
"Liberals Are Miserable People They say misery loves company, and that may be why liberals always want to extend their control over everyone and everything—because they are miserable people..."

An ideology which sees success and well-being as evidence of injustice is bound to lead to the misery of envy and resentment. And what's more, the liberal's own well-being is proof of personal guilt. It is unsurprising that this should lead to every psychological pathology one can imagine.

An ideology which sees success and well-being as evidence of injustice is bound to lead to the misery of envy and resentment.

Hence Winston Churchill's pity summary that “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.".

Seventy five years later, things haven't changed much.

Well, as noted in the post, it does rather speak to the weirdly dogmatic assumptions (or pretensions) of the agonised, rather than the object being agonised about, or how said object is generally understood. At least by people who aren’t competitively neurotic leftist academics.

Mispronounced names: my name is german. Rarely does anyone say it right or spell it right. I'm white. I am not oppressed by this it is just life. FFS people, lighten up. There was a prof who got two black students mixed up--good thing I'm not in his situation, I mess up names constantly.

Mispronounced names: my name is german. Rarely does anyone say it right or spell it right...I am not oppressed by this...

Agreed. Foreign language names will often be mispronounced and misspelled, no matter where you are.

I wonder if I would get your name right: I studied German for a number of years, but that was decades ago and I rarely have opportunity to practice my limited skills.

But since your name is German, and since collective guilt is all the rage, I would like to complain to you that the imported German pastries I bought for Christmas contained soybean oil and palm oil. If they had been echt Deutsche Gebäck then they would have been made with butter. Butter from cows that moo with an umlaut. Now what are you going to do about that?

Obesity: because of fear of offending, we were almost 18 months into the pandemic before I saw in print that obesity (called a pre-existing condition) is a big risk factor for covid. Better dead than rude.
If you observe middle age obese at the store, they are barely able to walk in too many cases. Esp women. Nevermind the heart disease and diabetes, do you really want to be voluntarily crippled? The only people I see using those electric carts shopping are the obese. The worst contribution of pop psych was the self-affirmation crap.

Christmas Eve meltdown: 'Woke' woman with doctorate in dance demands that she always be addressed as "doctor". Complains that she gets Christmas cards addressed to "Miss". Her profile on her now-deleted Twitter account described her as "Postdoctoral research fellow at @CDaRE_CU. Dancer. Teacher. Political. Thinker. Anti-racist. Research interests: Dance, disability, interventions, education, arts & politics. She/her. Sussex." (CDaRE_CU = Centre for Dance Research at Coventry University)

Her personal page at Coventry suggests that she will spend her life talking pointlessly about dance in tiresomely political terms while all the real accomplishments in dance will be done by actual performers and choreographers who will go about their lives paying no attention to her.

ccscientist

pst314: cows that moo with an umlaut hahahah.
on names: the irony is that in my experience Americans at least have gotten much better with foreign names the past 50 years with more exposure to them. Demanding people get names right that are ambiguous and complex is simply bullying.

Even short and simple names can be difficult if the combination of phonemes is unfamiliar. My name is straightforward English and only two syllables, but people have lots of trouble spelling it the first time. I'm not offended, only amused.

Leftist woman complains that it is more expensive to live alone than with a partner. It's an American conspiracy!

Think about your household’s monthly expenses. There are the big-ticket items — your rent or mortgage, your health care, maybe a student loan. Then there’s the smaller stuff: the utility bills; the internet and phone bills; Netflix, Hulu, and all your other streaming subscriptions. If you drive a car, there’s gas and insurance. If you take the subway, there’s a public transit pass. You pay for food, and household items like toilet paper and garbage bags and lightbulbs. You buy furniture and sheets and dishes.

Now imagine paying for all those things completely on your own.

Not toilet paper and light bulbs!

Anne Helen Petersen is an American writer and journalist. She worked as a Senior Culture Writer for BuzzFeed until 2020,when she began writing a newsletter for subscribers at Substack. Petersen has also been published in the opinion section of The New York Times... PhD in media studies in 2011 from the University of Texas at Austin where she studied the history of the gossip industry.

I may have spotted her particular malfunction. Imagine getting a real job.

ccscientist

Only wash Jeans once a month? There was a woman in office near me who apparently did that and she stank with the particular crotch smell that only such a practice could produce. Awful.
A female singer proclaimed some years ago that one only needs a single square of toilet paper to wipe. Besides being TMI, that is absurd.
The Left seems to attract people who want us to live small lives. Small, smelly lives eating bugs and not having AC. WTF
There are also people who view the realities of life such as 2 can live cheaper than 1 (not exactly true but whatevs) or one must work or people are attracted to beautiful girls as conspiracies of the patriarchy or whiteness. Nothing is just what it is.

Darleen

Leftist woman complains that it is more expensive to live alone than with a partner. It's an American conspiracy!

She takes every bit of actual data she sites and spins it as *proof* that American society is hostile to singles. Even the fact that the absence of dad in the house has real educational and life consequences for the kids is spun as a "if only Government was dad so mom never has one day of economic stress".

All she is arguing about is wanting to be a cosseted child where her own decisions - or even the vagaries of life itself, never cause any negative result. She wants a life of permanent Christmas with Government (and every other taxpayer) is Santa Clause.

As Europe was pulling itself out of the middle ages but streets were still mud and cities dark at night, a book on manners was published (so 1600 or so) featuring advice to please not poop or have sex in the street. The Left wants to revert to that era.

Seriously - what the fuck? What is "dance research," and why on earth would you need a centre for it? In particular, why would the world's 601st to 800th greatest university (I looked it up) need one? Who will ever refer to or rely on any of her 'research?' This is simply the useless being hired by the incompetent (and all on your dime, or... pence, bob?), isn't it?

Amazingly, there are academics who actually claim that the "research" is at least as important as the topic being researched. Watch them melt down when you laugh and tell them that dance is more important than academic papers on dance, literature is more important than literary criticism, art is more important than art criticism, and so on.

But but but, Government-run healthcare is SO MUCH more humane and caring than those dirty, filthy, running-dog capitalist medical doctors and nurses.

Which is why it is necessary for government to control everything: Independent private practices must be eliminated so that all doctors are part of large organizations and those organizations implement whatever policies government demands. Because doctors are incompetent to make medical decisions; only bureaucrats and political commissars know what is right and good.

I looked at my class roster and saw last name “Ng”. I asked the student how to pronounce it. He told me, but I think I still got it wrong. Thank goodness this happened in pre-woke times.

Come to find out, there are several correct pronunciations of Ng depending on dialect. So I might have pronounced it correctly in one dialect, but offended a listener familiar with another. Thank goodness this happened in pre-woke times.

What about cases where someone pronounces the name correctly but misspells it? McDonald v MacDonald, or McIntosh v Mackintosh?

Thank goodness this happened in pre-woke times.

The supposed agonies of misspelled or mispronounced names have cropped up here once or twice before. With exquisitely sensitive ladies invoking Alex Haley’s slavery novel Roots as a guide to their own suffering.

My usual reaction is to laugh, and ask "What are the most amusing mispronunciations that we Americans make, and what makes them funny? Do they just sound funny, or do they sound like wildly inappropriate words? And by the way, have you seen Monty Python's Bulgarian Phrase Book sketch?"

David

My usual reaction is to laugh,

It’s not a hill to die on, that’s for sure. And yet…

Oddly enough, the howling ladies linked above - for whom, an accidental misspelling of a phonetically unobvious foreign name amounts to a racist “attack” – don’t tell us whether they’re suitably punctilious in their pronunciation and spelling of strangers’ names, lest they inflict the same alleged emotional scarring and feelings of being oppressed. In fact, it’s curious just how rarely any mention of reciprocation crops up, even as a hypothetical possibility.

Come to find out, there are several correct pronunciations of Ng depending on dialect. So I might have pronounced it correctly in one dialect, but offended a listener familiar with another.

And some pronunciations might include sounds that aren't in your phonetic repertoire, so you'll have to learn the phonetic systems of the ancestral languages of each of your students.

We're being reciprocal in our principles, so naturally every non-English speaking immigrant will be expected to correctly pronounce obscure Anglo names like Smith. Anyone who pronounces it Smeet or Smeefe will fail the oral test, but that could never happen because the theme is that it's only stupid monolingual Anglos who mispronounce things.

Our principles should be backdated, with the descendants of Ellis Island immigrants having their old-country pronunciations restored. We should fly German phoneticians into Ohio to start healing the multigenerational trauma of the lost umlaut in the Schroeder family.

I've noticed an ostentatious effort to pronounce Hispanic names, for example by soccer commentators. Ellis Island names are just say what you see; post-1965 immigrants with Bhutanese or Ethiopian names they have no chance with; but with a bit of high school Spanish and chit-chatting with the man who does the trabajo in the yard, they can really learn how to rev-up the r sound in Hernandez.

The average quality of the information in a social network is inversely proportional to the square of the size of the network.

Again, the fault lies not in our apps, nor in our social media, nor in our politicians, nor our guns, etc. etc. etc. but in ourselves. The specific problem here is that technology has advanced much faster than our ability to adjust our filters. The one exception to my point is that technology in general is accelerating much faster than any human society that has ever existed could possibly adjust. But even that is our own fault. Not so much because we “let” technology advance so rapidly but because we fail miserably to see and/or acknowledge this obvious reality. And blaming the tech for our failures eclipses our ability to see the root problem.

Having a chip on your shoulder about everything (name pronunciation, holding doors open, wood paneling, the "male gaze", imaginary nooses) is an example of what Thomas Sowell called Honor Culture where you are ready to fight to defend your honor or reputation. It is conducive to duels, feuds, and fistfights. It does not fit well with urban living or peaceful coexistence. In the context of two guys in person it at least has an internal logic. On the internet you are demanding that the whole world back down and say sorry for offending you or else...or else what?

....what Thomas Sowell called Honor Culture...

I consider “shame culture” the more accurate term, and have harped on before about both its pathological nature and the Left’s fixation with turning the West into such a culture.

But here is a handy chart:

https://q.publicintelligence.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/guilt-shame.png

Note that it does cover such specific perversities as “if I and others pretend hard enough that you are guilty, even when we know you aren’t, then you are” or “I am not shamed if I pretend hard enough that I am not guilty of what I did”. Ditto the zero-sum game of “honor” being most readily gained by achieving the humiliation of another.

Amboy

But here is a handy chart:

If multikulti trainers were really dedicated to the premise that there are multiple kultis instead of believing that everyone in the world is just a Western progressive with an exotic cuisine that whitebread whites irrationally hate, then this is the sort of material they'd be teaching.

Perhaps conscience culture is a better name than guilt culture: feeling bad even if you've gotten away with something, feeling secure about doing the right thing against social pressure, being able to respect an opponent's position if it appears to be conscientiously taken, appealing to an opponent's conscience if you believe him to have moral reservations about his position. It's a cultural package for conflict de-escalation and for things to be done right without having to be explicitly negotiated or micromanaged.

The death of Col Gadafi was a great time if you regard the above as entertainment. Up to the time of his removal from power and death, I think he was always referred to in the Anglosphere as Col Gadafy/ Gadafi, and his name was pronounced as any English speaker would read Gadafy.

Then the media had a bout of competitive authenticity regarding his name, with a profusion of alternative, throat-clearing pronunciations and spelling.
