"They should know better..."

Sometimes I think I'm harder on "conservatives" than I am on "liberals". That may be because I grew up around "conservatives" and I was able to see through the nonsense. I think they should know better, too. But, all too often, they refuse.

I don't really know what goes on in "liberal" social circles and families, so I can't say whether they should know better. I would hope they would be able to. They are human, and possess a physical brain, after all.

But, for all humans, the dangers of holding wrong beliefs have been greatly reduced, which makes it too safe to be stupid. That's not a good thing for the future of civilization- or the species.

But you can't make stupid people reject their stupidity. You can only control yourself. Try to pay attention and avoid being caught up in the stampede into the ravine.

  1. I'm harder on Conservatives because I think they should know better, too. Conservatives claim to hate Big Government and give very good reasons for it, but then they claim that Small Government (security/judicial) is essential while saying that the reasons they just gave for all the other things that Big Government does incompetently and inefficiently don't apply to the provision of security and conflict resolution. So-called Liberals have no problem with theft and violence at all, as long as its done according to the official rule book written by people who win popularity contests; these people are pretty much hopeless and I pity the fools.
