    Default Other examples of hypocrisy

    Or surprising opinions you didnt expect to hear were you heard them.

    Inspired by the other hypocrisy thread I was thinking about this and some posts I read in a socialist forum which is now defunct a few years back.

    It was a youth forum so I think the people in question where talking about what was likely to be their first job, they were talking about how they felt they couldnt possibly take certain jobs because of their politics, in particular working in fast food restaurants or for Starbucks or in the service sector.

    I didnt get this or understand this, I told them what had been my opinion and that of three generations of socialists and trade unionists in my family, that it wasnt a case of refusing to work if the opportunity to do so existed but taking any job if the opportunity to work existed.

    They were all surprised but I thought it was common sense, socialism as I understand it is supposed to be about empowerment of working people, which you dont do from the sidelines.

    Does anyone else have any similar experiences?

    From Webster’s New World- a person who pretends to be what he or she is not; one who pretends to be better than is really so, or to be pious, virtuous, etc. without really being so.

    Many times when people are talking about hypocrisy about someone’s actions, I don’t see it.

    An example of what I would see as hypocrisy - An employer preaching to the congregation he belongs to that they should not hire a preacher if they did not have the ability to pay him a living wage (at that time to him approx. $3500 a month with full medical) while hiring new employee’s at his place of business at $8.50 per hour (at that time).
