RodneyToady: This slapdick doesn't know the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and gets more stupid from there.
rumpelstiltskin: Has this guy ever written an article that wasn't a list? He should have that checked out. Compulsive disorders can really spiral out of control if you don't keep an eye on them. Things may already be too late, since he evidently sits alone in his bedroom making lists about what he imagines liberals to be like rather than going outside and actually meeting some liberals. We do care about you, John. We want you to get better./And put that farking pie down. Getting mentally right is only half your battle.

We do care about you, John. We want you to get better./And put that farking pie down. Getting mentally right is only half your battle.This is a guy who just wants to be dealt in at the table. He knows that he can't win, he can't hang, but he wants to just be included. He wants to be at the cool kids' table. He is the same jib cut as many who toil at the Justification Machine. You see this with folks like Dean Chambers--who, oddly enough, I went to school with. These are thwarted humans, who just want to be liked, and since they're fairly unskilled socially, they figure if they just keep showing up with gifts, that they'll be allowed to stick around. Yes, it's an immature and undeveloped impulse, but that's who they are. And they're useful, in that they toil without a lot of compensation, and they'll get invited to a few parties, where folks will pat them on the head for a moment, and then turn back to their real friends, but for a moment, they're included. That so many of these poor souls are chunky...that's not coincidence. They ARE fat kids who want to be at the cool kids' table, they want to be with the cheerleaders, and the football players, and they bring cake and candy and a camera, and take their moments where they can. And they keep doing it for the rest of their damn lives, because they're damaged individuals who can't grow the f*ck up.The ones that do grow up? They don't court favor. They don't curry favor. They get on with their lives, and this poor soul is just an example of a cog in a machine that eats up toadying fat kids like said candy, and they like it. Because ...

Serious Black: 2. Personal responsibility is good for people.
SilentStrider: My only question is how can one person constantly produce such obnoxiously rancid farts and not realize they need to see a gastroenterologist?
Serious Black: Having bravely strode into the dungeon filled with dragons and miscreants, I brought out the below treasure:1. People respond to incentives.2. Personal responsibility is good for people.3. Human beings are not angels.4. Nobody cares as much about other people as they do for themselves.5. Men and women are different.Wait, seriously? I posed grave danger to my life and my sanity for that useless pablum? I shoulda just stayed home and left that "treasure" to be forgotten./grumble grumble
born_yesterday: There shall not be four farts, neither shall there be six.

threedingers: I'm gonna guess TFA (which I DNR) is just one big strawman.

DarnoKonrad: Most of them boil down to "be selfish" or "manipulate other people's selfishness." Which I suppose might be sound advice for short term gain.
Alphax: The mental laziness in these Hawkins lists is astounding. He just makes up a list of imagined shortcomings for imagined people he's never met, and some web site puts them up, again and again.
Tomahawk513: John Hawkins is like Cracked for those uninterested in citations and humor, and who are also crazy.
