    This is just a fledgling thought according to my own observations. Needs more attention to flesh out.

    reality delivers a harsh slap to your cheek.

    Yeah, still no idea what you mean. I do think people can live in their own bubble if they so desire.

    I only have incentives to advance my cause.

    I'm willing to meet in the middle, but I don't care enough to come up with the answers to others problems for them.

    That may seem cold, but it's honest.

    Wow bro, ur cool. So, why the f.uck did you open this thread, if I may ask?

    People tend to hate on those who have something good/enviable going on in their life when they don't. So, if you happen to have certain parentage, talent, material wealth... It can be something you can't talk about with people who don't have those things. Because it sounds like bragging to them... I guess.

    That's hardly the case. If you have material wealth and I'm a friend of yours, chances are I can indirectly enjoy it too (ex. by being invited to a party held in your large villa and drinking hefty wines from your cellar). When someone's just bragging, it's generally quite clear.

    So others can talk about it and figure it out.

    Just because I'm not invested in the answer, doesn't mean I'm not interested in the conversation.

    How can you claim that you are willing to meet in the middle when in the same sentence you say that you do not care?

    Willingness to meet in the middle requires at least some modicum of caring.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    I care enough to meet in the middle, but not enough to be the architect of the answer (for the other side).

    I suppose we need to narrow down what exactly it is that you care about. The fact you started this thread shows that you have an interest in the topic, yet during the discussions you say that you only have incentives to advance your cause.

    Would be a stretch for me to conclude that you do not care about the hardships of the less privileged, but you are indeed interested in how the problem is viewed by others so you can incorporate that knowledge to advance your political aspirations?
