Moxnews, UP w/ Chris Hayes, msnbc
Finally, the MSM is allowing one of Ron’s Top Subjects to be publicly discussed. One of the most intelligent conversations I’ve witnessed discussing the War on Drugs. The effect of the drugs, prisons, drugs in the prisons, perceptions of users, alcohol, and much more. (video 15:15)
While watching this show, the discussion of Prohibiting Pleasure knocked me into answering one of the questions I have had about Santorum.
Ya, I know, but with the few facts I’ve learned about him as a candidate, I kept asking myself, “Why does Santorum, and so many citizens of the United States, think how he does?”
Come on, it’s like some kind of phobia.
The man wants to inhibit Pleasure.
Of course I Wikied “Pleasure”.
Pleasure describes the broad class of mental states that humans and other animals experience as positive, enjoyable, or worth seeking.
It includes more specific mental states such as happiness, entertainment, enjoyment, ecstasy, and euphoria.
In psychology, the pleasure principle describes pleasure as a positive feedback mechanism, motivating the organism to recreate in the future the situation which it has just found pleasurable.
According to this theory, organisms are similarly motivated to avoid situations that have caused pain in the past.
As for Romney, I figure he knows what Pleasure is. But he’s torn between the same phobia. Which seems to create a conflict inside him, “To Be or Not To Be.”
I’m gonna have to check out more vids on this UP program and find out a little more about this guy Chris Hayes. If he’s writing this material and getting it Ok’d by management to air public. I’m curious to know what other subjects he’s had intelligent frank discussions about, or not.
