6. If that's true, then they are coming from an emotional place of being abused

And their logic is flawed and they are still believing in outmoded fantasies from WWII era.
It's like they think all one has to do is get a job, and you can inherit the american dream. But they are in denial that those those jobs either got outsourced 20 years ago or stayed here but the skill set that went with them became obsolete. It's like they don't realize that the jobs people got in the early 80's with a high school diploma you can't even get anymore with a master's degree. They are in denial that highly educated people accrue a life time of debt for that education, gambling with decreasing odds that it will land them a well paying job. But those companies are not always hiring, or if they are, they are from a cheaper laborer pool... like the guy in Moracco who gets paid $1 an hour by facebook to censor images people post.
They are not acknowledging that companies that once paid for health insurance do not anymore. That retirees pensions are gone, that social security is going, that millions lost their 401k's to corporate pirates that stole their life time savings.
These damaged abuse survivors are identifying with the character defects of their patriarch abuser. So they diminish those around them, to avoid looking into themselves. Paradoxically, they can't afford Christian traits such as humbleness or compassion for others, because if they did, they'd have to be responsible and accountable for the damage that their diminishment of others has caused.
