More Monckton Lies: Deranged National Press Club claims

August 10, 2011

YouTuber and friend of climatecrocks Collin Maessen offers this telling and hilarious take down of yet another Monckton claim – that he’s actually published a peer reviewed paper.

    “Pathological lying is falsification entirely disproportionate to any discernible end in view, may be extensive and very complicated, and may manifest over a period of years or even a lifetime.”

    • prokaryotes Says:


      The defining characteristics of pseudologia fantastica are that, first, the stories told are not entirely improbable and often have some element of truth. They are not a manifestation of delusion or some more intense type of psychosis: upon confrontation, the teller can admit them to be untrue, even if unwillingly. Second, the fabricative tendency is long lasting; it is not provoked by the immediate situation or social pressure as much as it is an innate trait of the personality.

      Third, a definitely internal, not an external, motive for the behavior can be discerned clinically e.g. long lasting extortion or habitual spousal battery might cause a person to lie repeatedly, without the lying being a pathological symptom. Fourth, the stories told tend toward presenting the liar favorably. For example, the person might be presented as being fantastically brave, knowing or being related to many famous people.

      Pseudologia fantastica may also present as false memory syndrome, where the sufferer genuinely believes that fictitious events have taken place, regardless that these events are fantasies. The sufferer may believe that he or she has committed superhuman acts of altruism and love or has committed equally grandiose acts of diabolical evil, for which the sufferer must atone, or has already atoned for in his/her fantasies.

    Monckton has admitted in the past that he is very comfortable lying to further his causes:

    * “They said, ‘Don’t you mind being made to look an absolute prat’, and I said, ‘No – I’m quite used to that’. History is full of stories that aren’t actually true.”

    There’s also a quote from (I think) the Guardian which I can’t find now. It was something like:

    * “I do enjoy being creative with the truth.” (AKA “I enjoy lying.”)

    It would be interesting to have a mental health specialist analyse his output. There’s clearly some pathology there….
