I have no patience for delusion or intellectual dishonesty. It's largely why I don't have any liberal or leftists friends and if I do, they are honest people, but misinformed and haven't spent the time needed to become an informed citizen. Heck, I can't even say that as nearly every one of my liberal friends in college are now libertarian or conservative. Regardless, the reason I do not brook intellectual dishonesty of delusion is because I am sane. I am an adult. I live in the real world.
This cannot be said of the vast majority of leftists and liberals.
This isn't to slam on them. This isn't to over simplify an issue in order to dismiss an entire ideology.
Leftists do not adhere to reality or act like adults.
You see this everyday and it gets frustrating.
Liberal - "We need to spend more money"
You - "How much more?"
Liberal - "I um...don't know. BUT WE NEED MORE!"
You - "How can you advocate spending more when you don't even know what we spend in the first place?"
Liberal - "Racism is why the blacks aren't doing well as whites."
You - "While racism may exist in the form of Cletus the trailer park schmuck in Casper, Wyoming, the real reason blacks suffer such lower standards of living is because they have a 70% illegitimate birth rate."
Liberal - "RACIST!!!"
Had I still some hope for the future of the country, I might care to try to convince or explain to my leftist brothers and sisters why they're wrong, but you can't because...
they have a mental condition.
I don't know about you, but my time is precious to me, and if I can't convince somebody with statistics, logic, reason and reality, then I'm never going to convince them. Some idiots recently made some comments on my youtube video about "The Reality Principle." They essentially said that they agreed with my concept (that you shoudl live in reality), but that i was completely forgetting the humanity aspect of humans. That they have emotions. And in ignoring that part, I was wrong.
It was such idiotic and outlandish bullshit because they actually think their feelings and emotions are just as valid as reality.
You - "Look out! Here comes a train!"
Liberal - "Yeah, but I feel that the train isn't coming."
Of course, that analogy is a bit simple and outlandish, but consider feminists (the most psychologically damaged of them all) who have gone to such delusional lengths as to claim things like the scientific method and math is sexist. So exactly how do you argue with them?
You can't argue or debate an insane person.
What I find particularly interesting, not to mention scary at the same time, is just what a high percentage of the population has this mental condition. Yes, a lot of it is just brainwashing. The young 21 year old suburbanite girl majoring in philosophy may not actually have a mental condition. Yes, the young black man is likely to blame everything on racism, because of brainwashing. But what gets me is when this brainwashing solidifies, rendering them imperviousness to any attempt to an alternative explanation of reality. At this point I don't know if it's brainwashing or an actual mental problem, but it still presents me the same problem (though I've had better luck getting some of our black brothers to wake up than Tilly the English Major). Ultimately, I fear the liberal zombie (which I've written about before) where you're no longer dealing with a sane human, capable of reason and independent thought, but a highly functional zombie that doesn't want to eat your brains, as much as they want to take your money.
Thank god I have neither.
