    I've always found it annoying that liberals claim to be so tolerant, but are ironically notoriously intolerant of conservatives.

    I am a liberal, but as long as people aren't harming anyone, I try to live and let live.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Dontcha know. At the heart of every liberal beats a fascist. I even got a few to admit this. They don't just want outward compliance, either. You WILL believe and feel appropriately or else.

    You are still of the belief that there is a "right" way to live for all people? Good luck with that. I hope it brings you peace.
    No. Not at all. And this is exactly what I'm talking about - if you're not a pacifist, you must be a fascist. Extremist thinking. Very simplistic.

    Yes, there is such a thing as liberal fascism, even officially, it's not a made up idea.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    People are going to hold value judgments. Heck, I have value judgments of my own. The trick is in sensing how when and how strongly one can express them without being self-indulgent about them.
    Could you Fe a little bit louder?

    "Good luck with that. I hope it brings you peace" is a statement that implies that the question before it was rhetorical.

    There are an alarming number of passive aggressive people in denial who recant when caught.

    Providing the person isn't being self-righteous about it, I'm willing to hear (and consider) pretty much any opinion.

    *This post is not a passive-agressive remark. Thanks.

    ^This is what I tend to notice often, when watching people interact/debate, and this type of issue arises... some people are more adept at conveying their ideas in the moment, with whatever emotional kneejerk internal reactions are going on in the background, and some will blurt out whatever jumble of phrases that color their flash of indignance. Usually, if I ask questions after something like that, or spend more time discussing the topic, I can get a better idea of how they perceive what they were referring to, and strengthen the communication so even opposing ideas can be shared and on some level, willfully respected on both sides..

    this isn't a universal observation, though. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who can be deliberately obtuse.
