Modern Liberalism – The New Face of Hate.

We have turned a tide in what and who liberals are.   No longer can we say that Liberals are good people.   Kind people.  Or even tolerant people.     Today, those ideals belong to conservatives.

Classic Liberalism held to these ideals and many people who consider themselves liberal follow these values.    However, a new form of Liberalism has taken power and it calls itself progressive.

We saw this during the american Trump campaign.  The lies, the hate, the vile rhetoric and most importantly how progressive liberals, spread their banner of love under the actions of hate and fear.

Progressives are now the bullies and the hated.   Along with feminists and social justice warriors who all fly under the banner of progressive ideals.     I have to wonder though, how progressive is it, to attack someone for money, accept money to commit violence, lie about crimes against a minority group.

It’s time to call out liberals for what they are.   The rest of use just want to live in peace.   Live our lives the way we want, say what we want, when we want.     Criticize an ideology, idea, debate it, dissect it, without being called racist, sexist, bigoted or any of the other myriad of “isms” which are intended to quite our collective voices.     Did you know it is racist to criticize the crime that a person of color has committed?   That it is racist to believe that they actually did do the crime, even when that crime has been captured on video?

Liberal media is partially to blame for the modern day idea that these stories can be anything but what they say it is.   If you speak out against the narrative, then you get viciously attacked by swarms of liberals.

Take the recent story of the lady who spoke with Justin Trudeau over the skyrocketing hydro rates in Ontario.    She spoke with eloquence and with passion, from the heart.   Asking and speaking what many, many people in Ontario are thinking.   She has medical issues and yet she worked multiple jobs to pay a monthly hydro bill which was higher than her mortgage.     The response was disgusting.   Death threats, threats on her family, harassment and all for a 2 minute video of her asking questions of the prime minister and his lackluster non response.

You can see the bullying, attacks on people, almost daily.    And it will get worse.    We just had our own version of Trump announce that he will be entering the leadership race for the conservative party in Canada.  His name.   Kevin O’Leary.     A great businessman, but questionable on social niceties.    And just days after his announcement, the liberals are already passing insults, derogatory comments, and trying to smear his name and worse, ignore his accomplishments, by simply calling him a reality tv show star.

Liberals, Feminists, SJWs are bullies, racists and sexist.

You can always tell because they will use terms like “Mansplaining from a old white guy” – Ageism, Sexism, Racism is what I hear in that sentence.   Or how black people cannot be racist.   The idea that no other race can be racist when historically and currently, there is rampant racism in the other races.

So stop being nice to liberals if they attack you.  Don’t walk away.   Human beings won’t learn unless they get their proverbial hand slapped.   So let’s slap their hands.  Together we can make Canada great again.

Abortion – “My body My Right!” Why this argument fails to logic and reason.

o-ABORTION-facebook.jpg

Abortion.  Such a touchy subject and one that many women will scream about.   In fact with the current american election looming, the subject has come up due to Hilary’s opinion that the unborn have no rights in law until they are born.   Which means, in her eyes, that a child can be ripped apart via abortion right up until the time labor starts.

This has caused a debate on abortion to renew again.  I’ve seen this debate happen numerous times over  the past forty years.   However, now with age comes wisdom and understanding.

The understanding that “my body my right” is false.     I will list my reasons why.

Let’s begin with conception.    Life starts there.   The mother’s egg is dormant until the father’s sperm penetrates the egg and gives it the spark of life and energy it needs to start cell reproduction.

One of the arguments from women is that they give life or create life.   Technically this is incorrect.   At best you can call a woman an incubator.   They carry and gestate that child in their body but the “spark” that created that life, came from the father.

The cells reproduce and form a child.   During that process there are many stages.    Many argue that there is no “life” until there is a heartbeat or a brain etc.    This really is a strawman argument.  Since as I stated the spark started at inception.

Now, with that being said many argue that the fetus can be aborted right until week 31-35.  In Canada, this is 24 weeks.  This is what a fetus looks like at that time.

fetus24weeks

Now I don’t know about you, but this does not look like a bunch of cells that get scraped off the uterus wall.     Yet, the abortions can and do happen this late.

So the argument of “My Body, My Right” is false.  It disregards the life of the child as nothing.   So I can understand how some could see it as murder.

If anyone has watched the Videos from the investigation into Planned Parenthood, you would have seen the horrors that they present.   Selling the aborted baby parts for profit.   The staff separating brain, legs, arms as if they were never human life.

Then we have father’s rights.   Or rather, the lack of reproductive rights.    Many of the people who argue for abortion always mention that “If the father didn’t want a child, they shouldn’t have had sex”.     This argument is without any kind of reason, coherent thought or logic.    The reason being is, the same logic can be applied to the women.   “If she didn’t want a child she shouldn’t have had sex”.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I’m not against abortion completely.   I firmly believe there should be allowances in law for it.  Such as cases of women or girls getting pregnant from rape, or incest.   Or in medical needs, such as her life is in danger from the pregnancy.   Those to me seem to be reasonable.

We have had over 50 years in Canada of proper sex education, women have access to more than twenty kind of contraceptive options.   Everyone, and I mean everyone knows the pill is not 100 percent and yet we still have unwanted pregnancies.

So maybe it’s time ladies to stop blaming men for your pregnancy?   Men have 3 options to them.  A condom, Abstinence or a vasectomy.    The power, the choices and the rights are all yours.   So if you get pregnant and it is unwanted, then to me, it is your fault. At least, ninety percent on you.

As, I have written, men do not have rights when it comes to being a father or not.   You scoff and will rant, but it is true.

Men have zero choice in becoming a father.   Once the sperm, penetrates the egg and cell division starts then women have all the power and the choice in society.    If a woman gets pregnant here are her choices.

1.  She can choose to abort.  2.  She can choose to keep the child.  3. She can choose to give the child up for adoption.  4. She can choose to not name the child’s father on the birth certificate.   5. She can choose to force the father to pay child support.  6.  She can choose to let the father give up his so called “parental rights as father”.   7.  She can choose to deny the father any visits to the child.

All the choices are hers.     This is why,  I think the laws  in this country concerning abortion need to take a more balanced approach to, well, every aspect.

We need to have this discussion as a nation.   People need to be honest and less selfish about it and that will start with you ladies, cause we men, don’t have the rights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Free Speech vs Hate Speech

I recently got into a debate on this (again), and for some reason people cannot fathom that hate speech laws are a form of censorship.     Worse yet.   We have the mayor of Ottawa Jim Watson, who has been in his office since the beginning of time, who openly now tweets and states that he is for the stiffing of speech because he finds it “vile”.

Mayors blast ‘pro-rape’ men’s meetings planned for Canadian cities

I tweeted him and stated that wanting to censor free speech is wrong, and he responded by calling me vile for supporting the guy  who wants to open a dialog about the rape laws.

Reasonable people understand that rape is bad.  We all know this.  No one condones rape.   The problem lies with the idea and definitions of rape.

Feminist supporters think rape can be this magical thing that can happen at any point.     Let me explain.

They (Liberals and Feminists) believe that (I’ve written about this before),

  1.  A man and a woman who BOTH get drunk, BOTH consent to sex and have sexual intercourse is rape.    Why?  A woman is apparently unable to consent while drunk.
  2. A woman who goes home with a strange man, gets drunk, takes drugs and gets naked, has sex with the strange man but doesn’t remember having sex has been raped.
  3. A woman who consents to having sex even when sober and then regrets the experience a week later, has been apparently been raped.

Do you notice the trend here?     Women are not responsible for their actions but men are despite being equal in things.

So this Return of Kings guy is calling for a debate and discussion about the rape laws if it occurs in your own home.

I get what he is saying and while I don’t agree entirely, with much of what he says, I understand that freedom of speech means being able to talk about things that people may find vile or abhorrent without repercussions from government.

As far as Mayor Jim Watson is concerned the idea of questioning the idea of rape laws is abhorrent.    This is the type of people in power and have been in power for a very long time.

I tweeted back the mayor stating the differences, that hate is the calling for 90% of men to be castrated or killed via the #killallmen hashtag.   Or the Drinking Male Tears meme which is common among rich white sorority girl feminists who do not understand basic concepts of freedom of speech.

Using these laws to shut down talk and discussion that you “FEEL” is wrong is not a valid reason.   Free Speech is a double edged sword.    I’m gay and I’ve heard the debate and discussion when gay marriage and even back when gays were not accepted as they are now.    I may not have liked what was being said but I never wanted to stop people from speaking their minds on subjects and having rational discussions.

Jim Watson, Justin Trudeau, if a woman or a man goes home with a stranger, and has spent a night flirting and implying they are interested in having sexual intercourse, and they go to either one’s home, get drunk or even not.    Get naked and have sex, and one party regrets it the next day, that is not rape.     Neither is it when you get drunk, and get naked in someone else’s bed.   That is called implied consent.   I know this concept is foreign to you but it is a real thing.    Penalizing someone for wanting to speak their mind on the subject or banning someone from speaking is called censorship.

And censorship is a form of oppression and hate.    Hate of true freedom.

Dear World, Justin Trudeau doesn’t represent Canada.

Dear World Population,

First I would like to thank you for reading my open letter.   I know that you are busy, so I will try to keep this short.

Justin Trudeau does not represent Canada.     Yes I know, he is the PM of the crown corporation of Canada, and claims he is the representative.    However, I will state this.   He does not represent the values, nor the ideals of the majority of Canadians.

How can he be the PM then you ask?    Good question.   First, and foremost, the majority didn’t vote for him.   Believe it!

The problem with our voting system is our leaders are chosen years in advance.   The media manipulates their audience with back and forth promotions to make it seem like it is a fair and honest election.     As I have written in the past about elections  and the process I won’t get into here, except that our votes don’t matter and that we do not live in a democracy.    If we did the people’ who removed their votes would be counted.   In this country though, the people who don’t vote are left behind.     In reality only a very small percentage of the Canadian population actually voted in the last election and of them an even smaller number voted liberal.

You see in our country, we are forced to vote for a party, not an individual.   So if you like the candidates objectives in your riding and vote for them then the party gets the seats in parliament.   This means that the person who is head of that party gets to be PM of the country.      If you don’t like the leader of the party but feel the only there is one candidate who falls in with your values or ideas of how the country should be run but hate the leader of that party, you really only have 2 choices.  Vote anyway or not vote at all.    Last election, the major portion of the population didn’t vote.

Now I know what your thinking.   “Then vote and make a difference”.   It doesn’t matter.   After speaking with Elections Canada, they informed me that even if only 10 people in the whole country voted then then we would still have a PM and the government would still run.

That is NOT a democracy.

So again, Justin Trudeau does not represent Canadians or our values.    His mindset is of third wave feminism which is about elevating women, giving them things like money, jobs, opportunities simply based on their gender instead of actually earning those things.

Recently he called for all Canadian’s to “embrace feminism and not be scared of it”.     This caused an uproar in the comment section of every media source that printed an article about this.

Canadians’ do not like third wave feminism.    Canadians believe in real equality, not the brand of equality that takes from men who have earned their money, job etc, and giving to to women simply because they are women.        This brand of feminism goes against the original brand of feminism that was about women having the right to work along side men and earn the same money and the same promotions as men.    Not be handed those positions, without earning or working for it, simply based on the the anatomy.

The original feminists who fought back in the 60’s speak out against this current crop of so called feminism.

In this country we believe in fair treatment.   We believe if you work hard in your career, and put in the time, sweat and tears into your job then you deserve and should move up the ladder.    You don’t get handed the board of directors position simply because you have a degree in gender studies.

To listen to our PM and see his efforts on behalf of feminism you would think we are all feminists, and we are definitely not.     It’s time to call out third wave feminism by all.  Time to call out the PM for pandering only to an ideal that puts men less than women instead of on equal footing.    It’s time to shout down this nonsense from all sources, and stop this before it really becomes harmful on our society.

Canada used to be peacekeepers, and the majority of us still believe we can be this again.
Canada used to be accepting of other cultures and groups.    We believe we can be this again.

Canada used to accept all religions and faiths and we believe we can be this again.

Don’t let Justin Trudeau’s  face fool you.    He is on a leash being controlled by third wave feminism, and he doesn’t speak for us.

And Justin, if you are reading this, understand this, you are a tool for the feminists.   You are not a feminist.   They will throw you under the bus the minute you are no longer a use to  them.    A man cannot be a feminist, that is like a black person supporting the slavery of black people.    Stop pandering to them and start representing Canada.  The real Canada.    Otherwise you may lose your job.

Calling all so called victims – Your actions have repercussions.

HELL

One thing I hear about each day, is case after case of men who have been accused of rape or sexual assault in the papers.    I barely read those articles anymore, simply due to the fact, they are all the same.   The person accused had plied the poor victim with booze or drugs, or had met the poor victim at a party, got drunk together, and then the poor victim went home with the accused and then well, rape.

If you have been a victim of rape, it can be traumatic.   We all understand this.   I have had two attempts of rape happen to me.

Being a victim doesn’t mean you are blameless.   It means something bad has happened to you.   It doesn’t mean you are not responsible, nor does it mean you are one hundred percent blameless.

I’ll use the current Cosby case as an example.   Here is a woman who admitted under oath, that she went over to Cosby’s Hotel Room. of her own free will.   He offered her drinks and she accepted willingly.   He offered her drugs.   She took voluntarily.

I’m stopping there.

This is why I don’t think is much of a victim.  Well, sorry, rather she is a victim of her own actions.    She accepted the booze, and drugs of her own free will.  He didn’t force her to drink and do the drugs.  He didn’t hold a gun to her head.

Does this excuse Cosby if he did it?    No it doesn’t, but it does give a clear idea of what the situation was at that meeting.   And shows the woman was using poor judgement, and was at least a victim of her own stupidity.

Now I’ll give more detail to my two experiences.
I’ll start off by stating (I’ve mentioned in other blogs), that I’m gay.   In my younger days I used to go to bathhouses.   These were and are places were gay men of all ages go to have sex.   They had reached their height in the Nineties when gays were not yet accepted and there was still a danger to go to a gay bar.   It was also a great place for those who were still in the closet to go and have sex.

Now on this night, I had been out drinking at a dance club.  I had gone to the bathhouse (because I didn’t find anyone at the bar to go home with), and got a room.    In bathhouses when you rent a room it’s this tiny room with this cheaply made bed in it, with a vinyl covered mattress and thin cotton sheet.    Everyone who goes to a bathhouse, can either rent a locker or a room, and you are given a towel to wear and that’s it.    Basically your naked in a towel and wander around until you find someone you want to have sex with.    Or, like me you can rent a room and wait for the guy to come to you.     This doesn’t mean you can’t be choosy.   In fact many people who go to these places are.   We all have our types.

Anyway, I was laying on the bed with the towel barely covering me, when this really, really drunk guy showed up at my open door.  I got a bad feeling so I told him no thank you, but I wasn’t interested (this is the politest way there to let the person know to go away).    The guy however, had different ideas and came in and shut the door.   He proceeded to try to throw my legs above his shoulders and penetrate me.    I used both feet on his chest and threw him off, which he flew backwards into the wall.   That wasn’t enough and he again tried.     And again I threw him off.   Banging his head hard on the wall.   After a third try he left my room.

I didn’t call the police and even though I was a victim of an attempted rape, it was still my fault.   I knew this at the time and to this day I don’t blame that guy.   I put myself in that position and I knowingly ran that risk.   This is the risk you take when you go and and sexually tease strangers.  It’s not pretty but it’s true.  When you sexually tease people, you run the risk of pushing the wrong button on someone that will set them off.

The second time, that I consider attempted rape, was when I lived in BC.  I lived in this gay hotel and was in the lounge drinking and chatting with the cute bartender.   I was happily drinking and at the end of his shift he offered to take me to his room.    I drunkenly agreed.   We got up to his room and I promptly passed out.  With my jeans and underwear on.    The next thing I remember was waking up and I was naked with him inside me.  I had no recollection of even going up to his room or half the night at the bar.  So I freaked out.   Pushed him off em and accused him angrily of raping me.     He was horrified.   He apologized profusely and even sent me flowers the next day.    I realized after that he wasn’t at fault.  I was.  I had accepted his offer to go to his room and that was implied consent.   I was the one who made the mistake of 1.  Accepting free drinks from him, 2.  Going up to his room in that state.   So I in no way put the full blame on him.

Now fast forward to today and you get you Social Justice Warriors who think that a victim has zero responsibility in their actions and I am telling you that you are full of it.     You are not blameless.     What you wear is important, your actions before hand are important and how you interact with a person are important.    If you tease and tease someone, and then say “No no, no!” you are risking pushing that button on that person who is not mentally stable.     If you accept drinks from strange men and then go home with them, expect they want to have sexual intercourse with you.

If you accept drinks from strangers, if you go home with strangers, then you run the risk of rape or sexual assault.    There is a good chance you will be going home with someone decent.   Don’t get me wrong there, but if you’re going home with a new guy every week or every few days, then the odds are pretty good that you will end up being a statistic.

Now, here is the advice.     You are in control of your life.  That means you have to accept responsibility for your actions, and as such, take precautions.   Learn self-defense, carry pepper spray.   Make sure a friend knows where you are going etc.

This is not taking any responsibility of a crime off the criminal.  What this does is help stop you from becoming a victim and the crime from happening in the first place.

It’s like a car.  You don’t go parking your car in a crime riddled neighborhood and leave the doors wide open and the keys in the ignition.  If you did that and your car gets stolen, were you asking for it?   Yes.  The person who stole the car is still a criminal but you can bet your sweet ass you asked for it, by doing that.

Same with going home with strange men, teasing them, and then denying them sex.    Most men will put up with that and respect your choice, but go through enough men and the odds are you will find one who won’t respect your saying No No.

I really hope this gets passed on and the message gets through to at least some people who believe that no victim is at fault for their actions because as I have just shown, that isn’t correct.

2015 Top Ten List Fails for Feminists

TopTen

2015 saw many fails for Feminists.  This is my list of my favorite top 10 of their fails (some carried over from 2014), and in my opinion, why feminism is fighting a loosing battle.

10. #Manspreading Campaign

This campaign was was designed to “shame” (Hypocrites) men into closing their legs to give room to women who want to sit down on public transportation in NYC.    This short lived campaign was started by some over privileged white college student women, who had nothing better to do, than harass men on the subway.

The campaign garnered notoriety and was in the papers.  The people who ran the subway system decided to make this a courtesy rule and put up signs in their subway trains.    This resulted in the arrest of 2 men after midnight who were on an almost empty train but because their legs were spread got arrested.   The cases of course were thrown out of court by a sensible judge, and after that the campaign to attack men for “spreading” their legs to far, was done.

9.  Potty Mouth Princess Campaign

pic-22

Nothing says equality than using little girls to push a political agenda by swearing at their elders, specifically male elders.   The FCKH8 campaign was short lived and garnered huge amounts of criticism from everyone, including some prominent feminists.    This of course didn’t stop the makers of the campaign, because in their eyes, any publicity is good publicity, so they stepped it up a notch to fight domestic abuse …

fckh8-part-two-hed-2014

Of course when a child is beaten black and blue like the princess above, we call this child abuse, and putting them on posters is called exploitation, but hey, it’s okay because it’s feminism and for a cause.   Huge fail.

#8.  Anita and that other chick whining to the UN. 

Anita whatsherdonkeyface, and the other one decided to go to the UN to fight against online cyber bullying.   After they presented their speech, they actually made feminism look even worse and helped turn the tide of women going against feminism.

Their best argument for censorship on the internet was people having a different opinion than theirs, not being allowed to block or report people who have a different opinion than theirs and best of all, anyone who isn’t a feminist to be censored.

#7.  #BanBossy

The concept of this campaign was to again “shame” people for using the word bossy when it comes to women.    Some people are bossy but according to feminists, women are not bossy, just expressing themselves.  Cause you know… feminist can’t ever be bossy.
angry-feminist

#6 Free The Nipple!

According to feminists, this is a big button issue that needed to be addressed.   They wanted to be able to post photos online of their bare breasts but also be able to walk around in public bare chested.

This was one of my favorites because I know a bunch of feminists in my area who thought this was great and supported it.   And I pointed out that they can legally go out bare chested, that nothing was stopping them from doing so in Ontario.       They’re response was to of course blame men for their insecurities of walking around bare chested.   I asked why, they would respond in the typical manner that “I don’t want to be stared at” or “I don’t want to be sexualized”.  (Usually from the hideous women who drink Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream for breakfast)…  And I pointed out that if they (women), walked around bare chested more often then it would be common place and no one would blink twice at it.     And ,… this is when their argument falls flat .   Fail.

#5.  Shirtgate

A scientist successfully landed a rover remotely on a moving comet for the first time in human history.    That should have been celebrated by everyone, but feminists with less than half a brain attacked the man due to the fact he was wearing a shirt that they found offensive, due to the fact there was scantily clad on the shirt.     It didn’t matter that the shirt was made by a woman friend of the scientist who created the shirt for him as a present and is a feminist herself.   Nope.   They again pulled out the “shame” tactic and had the poor man in tears on national television apologizing for the shirt, tarnishing his great achievement.

#4.  Rape Culture

A movie that came out a few years back called “rape culture” caught the attention of feminists who jumped on the idea that we live in a society that actively promotes rape and protects rape.

This idea however, fails completely when looked at logically and by the stats and as well, as by looking at reality.

Western society doesn’t promote rape, it demonizes it.   So much that even the flimsiest accusation can ruin a man’s life.

In fact in western society, we have less than a percent of a percent of rape crime in our society.    Men are given long sentences if convicted of rape.

That brings me to …

#3 Cosby

This one is still going on even though the media controversy started in 2014.    Apparently Cosby should be tried for rape on hazy recollections and no proof from almost 40 years ago.

According to feminists, it doesn’t matter, the victim should be treated as if she is telling the truth, regardless of lack of evidence or facts.   Ignore the fact the women admitted to drinking and doing hard drugs at the time of their alleged rapes with Cosby.

According to the feminists, a rape victim shouldn’t have to prove the guy raped them, the guy should be proving his innocence.

In other words, let’s take all responsibility off the plaintiff and put it all on the defense.

Thankfully as of last month Cosby has decided to sue the women for defamation of character.    Good Luck Mr. Cosby.

#2 Air Conditioners are Sexist! gxfHjJl

According to this so called “journalist” for the Guardian Newspaper in the UK, air conditioners are sexist against women.    Due to a study that showed that women feel cold more keenly than men.   So when the office air conditioner is on, it should be, according to her, turned down to a comfort level for the women in the office and let the men sweat.

This whole thing went world wide and people laughed and thought this was a joke until they realized it was a serious topic and so many people took this as another notch in how feminists make themselves look utterly idiotic.

#1 Gamergate

b4a

Yes this is still happening and has been talked about, almost nonstop all year in the gaming community.   Feminists constantly and consistently make themselves look like complete morons with this.

In case you don’t know what this is about…

It started as the people in the gaming community, complained on how there was no neutrality in the journalism when it came to games.   And they were right.   A gamer will get a constant barrage of reviews that praise this game or that game and nary a negative review happens.   This is due to the fact the game developers pay these people to write positive reviews.     This is called a paid endorsement.    Many articles in newspapers and magazines are paid endorsements and you don’t even realize it.

This really didn’t get any controversy until Anita Sarkesian and her chummy “I am a feminist” male writer buddies decided to make this a commentary against women.   And so a campaign was launched by her and her reviewer friends to discredit the gamers who complained.

This had nothing to do with sexism in gaming or feminism in reality.   It was to protect their cash cow.   Can’t have their audience criticizing their sources of income after all.

They hid this under a veil of feminism and sexism in gaming by gamers and the developers, in an effort to divert the attention away from themselves.    They realized during this campaign that the developers would bow under pressure of the pen so they would attack anything and anyone in gaming, citing sexism.   From the lack of female lead characters, to flimsy female outfits, to violence against women in games.

They did convince a small few at the beginning.   The HoneyBadgers for instance had been ejected from Com-icon when a feminist complained about the content of the comics being displayed at the com-icon both by HoneyBadgers. (Women by the way).

Then things heated up when they demanded women superhero characters (even though there are thousands in the comic books), and so companies like Disney (who bought marvel) announced they were making Thor female.   (The Norse God of Thunder).   And wonder woman got a new outfit that covered her more but still made her look feminine.

This enraged some of the geeks and nerds out there who rightfully complained about the buckling under the pressure from the feminists who until this past year, didn’t complain about this before (These characters have been around for over 50 years).

To this day gamergate is still going but has lost much of it’s momentum because the feminists have been making themselves look bad with every new demand.

_____________________________________________________

Anyway, that is my list.    If you think there is a feminist fail that should be on the list feel free to comment below.

Cheers!

 

Looking at Reality … We are not our jobs.

We as a human race like to label things, especially people.   We categorize (even I do it), to the point that we now identify people as non-objects.

For example, in my profession, I go out and take photos of people, places, and things.    I call myself a photographer.   However, I do not see myself as a photographer.  That is a profession and is something I do.   Many people fall into this trap of thinking of themselves as this or that.

Judges, Doctors, Lawyers, are notorious for this.  They believe those little abbreviated letters they add to their names, and business cards is who they are.    When you ask any of these people, “Who do you think you are?”   They will almost always respond with “Well, I’m a Doctor of course”, instead of “Well I’m a human being”.    No one ever says that.   And no one thinks it anymore.    Even judges are under a delusion that they are a “court” when issuing a contempt of court order for something trivial like a defendant speaking to something that the judge doesn’t like directly.  One example I witnessed, was a defendant saying the judge was  a dickhead, and the judge stated that he was in contempt for insulting the court, when the reality was the judge was the one being offended, not the court, but due to the delusional nature of status, the judge as all judges do, believe they are a room.

The idea of status originates with social classes and those abbreviations somehow make you seem better than your fellow human beings.   It confers to many that they are smarter  than those without the letters.   That they have some secret special knowledge that only those with the same letters after their names somehow can understand.

Which is why you get people, like the pro vaccination people (The ones who need a professional in the medical field to inform them of safety of medicine), scoff at the anti-vaccination people (the ones who have actually done their homework themselves),  or the people who are against the ideology of feminism, vs the people who are feminists who blindly believe their gender studies professors at their word, because their professor has a PHD.

The idea that status confers some special intelligence is a fallacy that needs to be questioned at every point.   It doesn’t matter what class you are.  That is another label that just divides us.

People in many cases are stupid, and yes I do mean this.   They fall for these delusions much in the same way a prisonor will start to associate with their captors, even to the point of defending the captors.    This the the state of delusion that the majority is in.

They think of themselves as this, or that but never as human.   That would be bad, because it removes their status and makes them the same as everyone else in the world, the same level.

And of course those people want to be better thought of than everyone else.
