Response to countryjake (Reply #25)

28. Thanks for that explanation, countryjake

There's no way krispos can provide all the context for threads like that one.

My post was a riff on your humorous reply mocking the 'catspiracy' notions of our disruptor--who began by defending the cat-killing pastor and blaming the cat owner before volunteering his backstory with its wild conspiracy theory.

The disruptor struck me as someone who sees human interactions in terms of a power struggle. He believed nefarious cat owners conspired to deploy hundreds of cats onto his property. To "steal" his property, in effect, by despoiling it and depriving him of his full use and enjoyment of it. He saw them as exerting power and control over him--something which he could not abide. And he expressed his racism and bigotry along the way.

Taking him seriously only encouraged him. So naturally, a bunch of us took another tack--mocking and ridiculing his preposterous assertions.

The post to which I was responding was yours--and I cracked up when I saw it:

54. A popular control method? What are you so mad about?



Together, we and others made a pretty good pickup team for handling a disruptor.
