    We have a bunch of those sorts of open secrets. "Why, yes; I've never told a lie" and "Why, no; I've never deliberately stabbed someone in the arm with a pocket knife." Please. We've all done those things.

    Is critical thinking taught in most high schools?

    I found critical thinking and the idea of objectivity really mind opening to me. More so then any other formal or supposed 'enlightening' concepts.

    I feel at times that is what keeps a lot of people stuck. I learned about them in college, though. I know school doesn't always teach people how to think necessarily either.

    Why is the alternative and counter-culture world so oddly unknown of to the majority and regular society? I find this strange.

    I would almost hesitate to say, to many types this is actually their preferred or more natural inclination, isn't it?

    But more emotional or feeler types generally would struggle with this, normally. Working hard isn't alays a virtue, not when you up show your superiors or your co-workers too often.

    Oh. Huh. I read that last post completely wrong. I thought you were saying that I'm not a critical thinker on account of my username being a conspiracy theory which may have implied that I actually believe it. My bad. My apologies.



    Though I'm serious with the hard work / virtue thing. It's just that something being virtuous, though, doesn't necessarily make it universally right. (I had to learn that myself because pursuing ideal virtue, perfection, and worth was my preferred inclination, to a fault.) In fact, working really hard can be seen (rightly or wrongly) as showing off because hard work is a virtue. People value hard work, and so the perception is that working hard gives you value. Exaggerating or flaunting that hard work is showing off.

    The thing is that virtues can be pursued single-mindedly, which is usually a bad thing. Want to feel valuable? by feeling that you work really hard? Want to give others that impression, too? One way to (try to) do this is to try to outperform your superiors or coworkers, because if you work harder than them, you're relatively more hard-working. Hey, you might step on their toes and otherwise act like a total dick (which violates another virtue: not being a dick), but at least you're hard-working.

    The exemplar is the common mantra -- "Man, I'm soooo busy." How often do we hear acquaintances, coworkers, and friends tell you how busy they are? Chances are that it comes up no fewer than a billion times a day. Being busy means being valued. (And so we might also respond in kind -- "Yeah, I feel you; I'm sooo busy too!")

    It'll be a cold day in hell when you hear a loose acquaintance, the dude you pass by in the hallway at lunchtime every day, that cashier at Starbucks, or that guy waiting with you at the bus stop tell you "Man, I'm working soooo smart."

    People are too unpredictable. That's why I hate people; not because they're emotional or outgoing or any of the other reasons people like to assume. You never know what a person is going to be like. What will they say? What will they think of you? Will they insult you? How will it feel? What will you say back?

    I think today might be a good day to try my idea of pressing my own boundaries by standing in my swimming shorts in the middle of the street offering conversation and maybe more!

    Or tomorrow...tomorrow is always good.
