^ same. I don't have high blood pressure, but after you notice almost everything in this world resumes to someone trying to make you do something, you start not giving a shit to most things.

That's my current struggle. So much shit is engineered to keep you placated and docile and distracted. How do you know what activities are safe to do without worrying about an underlying agenda or subtle programming?

Good work, your boy Justin must be proud of you. We have a saying in India: Don't poop on your boy. If you must poop, poop on your neighbors boy. S poop on Atif Colo's boy.

Sounds like suicide and a lie, if that were true, you wouldn't be here. Lots of the same commentary in this thread just points to cowardly cucks. Whites are being genocided and flatly exterminated in south africa, maybe these things don't matter to some.

Came here to say something similar... I didn't quit caring about the opinion of all others, I still care about the opinions of my close friends and family... does that mean I will listen or like It? Absolutely not!

Explaining things to people.

I used to be the guy at parties who liked to share information about common misconceptions, myths, and other fun facts that contradict whatever point you tried to make. I didn't mean to be an asshole, I thought, "Remember the Golden Rule. If you were going on an embarrassing tangent based on easy cleared up falsehoods, you'd like someone to stop you before you stuck your foot in your mouth."

But people don't appreciate being corrected, debunked, or shown the error of their ways, not unless they're in the process of seeking information do people change their beliefs. When the truth becomes a mystery, then people open themselves to it.

When people say what they believe, that's not the time to tell them they're wrong. It's stupid and accomplishes nothing. That's a time to ask questions, the Socratic Method, until they're at the place beyond their understanding. Only then can you replace their belief with something that addresses all the facts.

There's no fast way to do that. It takes time, patience, and humility that YOU might be wrong. It takes willpower to never start a sentence with the word "Actually". And suppose you did change someone's mind, for a moment, on one issue. Political and religious beliefs are an intricate web of contradictory policies based on inherited and intuitive values which cluster in populations. People's identities are wrapped up in the cluster of their closest alignment. You change one view on one topic, you threaten their whole identity, their whole social network, potentially their source of income and way of life. People are not happy when you tell them they built their house on sand, as much as that is something they should know.

Who has time for that?

I don't tell people they're wrong. I take my beliefs and put them into action. If my beliefs lead me to success, then people will come to me for guidence. I won't give the answers easily so I don't become a crutch. I teach them how to find answers for themselves, and only when they seem completely lost and ready for my help do I give it.

I don't have to explain things to people who don't ask for my help. I don't have to correct people unless it directly affects me and my sphere of responsibility. And I don't have to show people the way, I just go my way and let others follow.

This is similar to something I've experienced/learned as I've gotten older.

I absolutely love debating and rhetoric. I love watching it, I love listening to it, I love thinking about it, but I really fucking love debating others. I like chipping away and poking and prodding at people's ideas until I can find a crack. I like putting my ideas to the test and have others attempt to poke holes in my logic. There's just something invigorating about the whole experience for me. However I came to the realization during an unfortunate encounter with friends that some people just don't enjoy those things at all. This also led me to realize that not everyone possesses introspective qualities which was a mistake on my part to make that assumption.

Not everyone can handle an intense conversation let alone a debate and despite my desire to clash ideas together, I started not giving a shit about engaging people in that manner because I wasn't exactly gaining anything from it.

This quote from Thus Spoke Zarathustra really stuck with me as well even though it's not a particularly original thought. Just worded very well.

"I love the brave: but it is not enough to be a swordsman,--one must also know against whom to be a swordsman! And often it is greater bravery to refrain and pass by: in order to reserve oneself for a worthier enemy!" - Nietzsche

So these days I let people be unchallenged morons more often than not while I wait for a proper challenge to take on.

I also enjoy a good debate. But too many people these days, intentionally or not, are simply arguing in bad faith. And that's just boring listening to them spout off whatever the tv tells them to without actually listening and having a conversation.

This is my go-to strategy.

You change one view on one topic, you threaten their whole identity, their whole social network, potentially their source of income and way of life. People are not happy when you tell them they built their house on sand, as much as that is something they should know.

Some dude interviewed me for his YouTube channel and the conversation turned to gun politics. We talked for around 20 minutes. At the end of the conversation he was pretty shaken up and told me, tears in his eyes, that he agreed with what I was saying on a rational level but needed some time to process the emotions he had wrapped up in his long-held views. We parted ways with a friendly handshake and hug--he never posted the video and I never saw him again.

Sometimes you get a person who just needs to hash it out and walk away. Then weeks or months later, they've assimilated it. My girlfriend is like that. She likes to argue, but always loses and never admits she was wrong. Then she'll come home from a night with her friends where the same topic came up, and she'll use all my talking points without realizing that just weeks earlier she held the opposing view.

The hamster in her brain just goes around and around until she realizes she trusts me more than she trusts herself or her friends on things they know nothing about. But she has to disagree first, just to test that I know what I'm talking about.

I try to show people how I came to the same conclusion for an answer so they can think it out for them self but then I become impatient and want to continue doing what I was doing so I just tell them the answer, fuck it, fuck them. I always give them a no guarantee so if shit goes sideways , it's not on me. Also you don't have to tell me my house is on sand, it's sinking slowly already, I know it is.

This reminds me of a quote from the bible most here likely know.. Matthew 7:3 "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?"

If you don't have your own problems taken care of, you shouldn't even be considering starting to take care of others problems. There is much wisdom to this. This is what they need to be teaching kids instead of telling them that it's their responsibility to go solve all the inequality in the world, without telling them inequality is natural, because people simply are not all equal.
