Oh look, it’s only what everyone with common sense and psychologists like Dr. Jordan Peterson have been saying for YEARS.

“Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism,” the authors wrote.
As result of the new data, study authors Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams have coined a new term for such psychological behavior: the “dark-ego-vehicle principle.”
“According to this principle, individuals with dark personalities — such as high narcissistic and psychopathic traits — are attracted to certain forms of political and social activism which they can use as a vehicle to satisfy their own ego-focused needs instead of actually aiming at social justice and equality,” they told PsyPost.
Oh really? People attracted to causes like BLM, pandemic mandates, and drag shows for kids tend to be greedy psychopaths who will burn down cities for the heck of it? Who could have guessed??
“In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.”
The study on left-wing authoritarianism also showed that many times they do not practice what they so loudly preach.
Social justice is often used as a guise for these activists to behave unhinged, the research noted.
It’s amazing how accurate this meme template is today.
I’m old enough to remember the last 20 years when Christian pastors came out and told us we weren’t loving our neighbor if we didn’t support these leftist activists.
Then the few of us who publicly pointed out the slide toward violent authoritarianism that spits in the face of freedom, love, and justice got censored and doxxed for our trouble.
