    First, it takes a rare individual to be content with absolute failure.

    It can be frustrating when a concept so simple/easy to grasp has flaws that are more complex.

    Same reason why some people hate the opposite sex. Seemingly simple concepts that fail for complicated reasons.

    That's my guess, anyway

    Because people just won't bend to their will. That's frustrating. Same reason why central planners on the right are unhappy.

    It is because people and the world don't automatically behave as they demand, in essence they are spoiled brats, those who learn to deal with things not always going the way they want on the other hand are not constantly frustrated.

    They focus on the negative, and are lacking the necessary logic to see past their bleeding heart compassion and counter-productiove “solutions”.

    Their perceptions are so poisonous that they are incapable of being content. They are an enemy of the natural world.

    Envy.

    Envy is a sin deeply ingrained in human nature.

    Envy:
    Definition of envy
    1 : painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage
    2 obsolete : malice
    3 : an object of envious notice or feeling his new car made him the envy of his friends
    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/envy

    1. a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions, etc.
    2. an object of such feeling: Her intelligence made her the envy of her classmates.
    3. Obsolete. ill will.
    https://www.dictionary.com/browse/envy

    Envy
    You want what they have

    They have it, you want it, so you feel envy. Envy is not only felt for material possessions, more often we envy people who are well regarded, admired, influential, and successful. We wish we had their stature. At its root, envy is feeling bad because a colleague has now achieved a higher stature than you. It is an egocentric and selfish view of fairness.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    Because they compare what exists now as the social order to some ideal in their heads, not to alternatives or historical civilizations. Any nation looks terrible compared to an ideal, no matter how good it is, relatively speaking. Ironically, the backward-looking reactionary is far more realistic than the supposedly forward-looking leftist or Marxist.

    And, to be honest, libertarians -- ancaps in particular -- have a lot of the same issues.

    Could a transgender society survive at an earlier time period? I don't think so. These are delusional people.

    Emperor Elagabalus was supposedly trans.

    They don't want a "transgender society", they want the erosion of all norms in the name of some malformed conception of freedom.

    This, on the other hand, might be why they're sad...

    People criticizing them for cultural rather than economic reasons, implicitly telling communists that becoming pro-life et al will make them tolerable.

    O, wait, maybe that's me that hates them with a burning passion and will never tolerate them or their nationalist fellow travelers.

    ...entirely regardless of genitalia

    Hmmm...

    I don't think anyone has ever thought such a thing. There are National Bolsheviks and other right-wing socialists, (Aleksandr Dugin and the like) and they're bad too.

    Hold on, I heard they are never happier than when they are going for a helicopter ride.

    Left Hegelians are often not "authoritarian" in the way libertarians mean it. The individualism of Max Stirner makes classical liberalism look like Fascist Italy.

    Hey bud, it's been some time since we've spoken.

    As I told you years ago, if you recall, the future is for bolsheviks and national socialists.

    They will radicalize until, given economic trouble, it's Berlin c. 1921.

    This is not a movement to support.

    You, and I, will be eaten alive (because we can read).

    I'll see you in the camp.
