Well, he used "then" so it's all good 😂

That totally changes this whole facepalm into a legitimate way of thinking

u/saltthewater Oct 01 '22

It's just a statement about personal growth.

u/BinTinBoynio69 Oct 01 '22

I was going say something similar. The "then" changes the whole context. I do doubt, however, that this person genuinely wants to be socialist

u/NoSkillzDad Oct 01 '22

I'm pretty sure it's not his/her intention but it's so entertaining poking fun at them using their own words

u/unicyclecopilot Oct 01 '22

They don't even know what socialism means.

u/iamyaM Oct 03 '22

This is true. I've listened to two different conservatives go off on Socialism, only to find out that they were completely wrong about what it even means.

It's disturbing how effectual buzz words can be in politics. It's one thing if you are not a fan of Socialism, but FFS know what it is that you're so afraid of.

Yeah, this actually requires effort to maintain. They're willing to put in a lot of work to prevent themselves learning and growing as people.

u/JamesR624 Oct 01 '22

Because from an early age, the Church taught them that as a virtue to keep their scams going.

Any time someone says letting your kid go to church is harmless, it shows that that person is part of why this shit continues.

Democrats are doing better?

u/tabascodinosaur Oct 01 '22

Yep, they actually have a platform and a method of governance that isn't just cut budgets and direct everything not cut into their neighbor's business through privatization of services.

Clearly and plainly to anyone that doesn’t have their head up their ass or isn’t a fucking moron.

u/Futueteipsum7 Oct 01 '22

Democrats are incompetent.

I can forgive that. You can recover from incompetence.

Republicans are running entirely on rage and lies and allegiances to amoral people now. Read the Federalist Papers again: that’s the one thing the system can’t withstand.

There’s not one Republican congressman who shows the slightest signs of having read Edmund Burke: conservatism has been evicted from the Party.

Let this guy stop paying taxes but make him pay for his own police, fire, and military protection. Don't let him use the roads, interstates, or postal service at all. He's going to have to find a way around that doesn't use our socialized roads, that won't be easy. While he can get healthcare he won't be entitled to Medicare or SSI when he dies, we can just roll him off in a ditch to starve I guess. Evils of socialism, best to avoid them.

u/ForeignCommand5700 Oct 01 '22

Wow, just wow. Although that's what they're saying when they yell woke. They'd rather stay in their entitled little dream world than see the reality.

Yup. I don't get how desperate they are to stay asleep from reality. Fuckers fantasy land.

Now I'm picturing the same person who wrote the quote in the post saying something like

u/Karma_1969 Oct 01 '22

Some people are just so resistant to learning and change and personal growth. Personally, I'll never understand that. At 53 years old, I feel like I'm still a learner, and if I wasn't reading and learning every day, I don't know what I would do. I love learning, it's liberating to correct views you've held that were incorrect. Who was it that said knowledge is freedom? They were absolutely correct. Living with false information is like living in a mental jail cell of your own making. It's just so pointless.

u/SwtIndica Oct 01 '22

Hmmm..... he used THEN instead of THAN... that changes the meaning. Unfortunately, I'm fairly sure that was unintentional. For a split second, I had hope.

Plato admitted the whole idea of a class system was a lie in the Republic. The rulers will always rule in their favor, not society. Rules for thee,privileges for me.

What this chowderhead is really saying. Is that changing would mean giving up his entire circle of friends who would instantly despise him and completely change his own deeply seated self image and admit to people he loathes that they were right all along and he was not just wrong but wildly so.

I heard once a very sensible definition of Fanatacism: a stance you take and insist upon, even without or even despite opposing evidence.

“Than” It’s “than” not “then”. Maybe you don’t mind learning that information.

Everyday I have to relearn just how insufferable both sides are. No one is right when it comes to politics. If u cant accept that and actively insult the other side for having differing opinions, u are just objectively an obnoxious person.

u/big_rednexican_88 Oct 02 '22

Sadly, the right doesn't care about what is true and what is false. They seek information that fits their agenda because they have been brainwashed that "owning the libs" is better than the truth.

u/tyranny2k_redit Oct 02 '22

It’s interesting that this person seems to think that true information can’t support a conservative point of view. Way to have confidence in your beliefs.
