Why People Are Like That Today: There are countless ways to think about a thing. There are some views that are absurd enough that most people recognize them as foolish.
They say familiarity breeds contempt, and we are most familiar with our own thoughts. In unaware motivation from this, we ignore our own thoughts by projecting them out onto the world as “facts” and then blame the world for being a cold and twisted place.
When we are presented with other peoples trains of ideation, we then must as a rule reject this from our model of reality, because “How can their thoughts be any more correct than mine?” We even typically attack ideas we actually agree with for no other reason than they aren’t phrased exactly as we would phrase our own.
They also say “You always hurt the one you love.” Most people have a passive aggressive relationship with their own minds that they are so committed to as to argue their own life out of existence. To that I say, Thanks. I would rather actually live my life, fantasy or not.
In My Humble Opinion. What’s yours?
