I dunno… everybody is finding ways to rationalize what’s going on, even if the explanations are unsavory. Manipulation of the masses to stay in power and get ever richer seems to be the most favored general theme.

But the atmosphere feels like it’s getting darker - there’s a sadistic sense to it all - like teenagers torturing kittens. Totally irrational and psychotic behaviors, destruction because it feels good, lying because the truth is weaker, hatred because it feels good…

People who want to hurt other people - how many are there?


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

I think Rick wants to hurt me because I don't buy into his hatred of conservatives.

I simply refuse to hate(or loathe) ANYONE. Black, brown, gay, conservative, whatever...

Everybody is in enough pain without me wanting to hurt them more.

I wasn't thinking of anyone in that category here on RR, I'm thinking of the nasty RWN cabal - Trump, Limbaugh (deceased), Carlson, Gosar, Hannity, Cruz, Greene, etc., etc., etc., ... The Sociopaths. Right behind them are their supporters, who take such glee in hurt, and genuinely admire them for it.

The only one here who seems to be out to hurt me is Tat, with some of his wordplay - some of it is too good, some of it is too bad! devil

In explanation, I have declared myself a confirmed humor INDEPENDENT!
I no longer discriminate between good and EVOO devilhumor. Can I start an INDISCRIMINANT party, or would that be encroaching on the ideology of some other possibly pre-existing party?
Humor is like Werner VonBraun's view of buzzbombs, "I just send them up, who cares where they come down, it's not my problem said Werner VonBraun! or maybe it was Tom Lehrer??

You'e overthinking the situation. That you find Conservatives have redeeming values is interesting. Hmm

Just for the record, please list three positives that Conservatives bring to the table. Thanks in advance. smile
