    Default NT's analyze these "laws"

    So the danes have been accused of exhibiting these laws in our daily life:

    1. You shall not think that you are special
    2. You shall not think that you are of the same standing as us
    3. You shall not think that you are wiser than us
    4. Don't fancy yourself as being better than us
    5. You shall not think that you know more than us
    6. You shall not think that you are more (important) than us
    7. You shall not think that you are good at anything
    8. You shall not laugh at us
    9. You shall not think that anyone cares about you
    10. You shall not think that you can teach us anything

    Tell me what you think of these and give me your oppinion on these "laws". Would it work in your country? Would you find them useful to exhibit? Could there come anything positive or negative out of applying those laws in everyday life? Which ones do you seem to fit with the NT approach? Which laws do you find useful and what do you not? and so on....

    I am predispositioned when it comes to these laws so Im biased so I will just give input and questions not any clear oppinion at first.

    Who is us?

    Also, conservative bullcrap. I wish people that come up with crap like that remain consciously unchanging for all eternity.

    Funny fact, these 'laws' have always been in invisibly in practice in all societies to some extent, but ignorance is bliss.

    Good ol' Jantelov. Keeping the Scandinavian streets clean, the taxes high and the mentality obnoxiously politically correct.

    An interesting thought occured to me here, I'll try to deconstruct a little with this in mind:

    2 contradicts most of the others, and points to the special pleading fallacy operating here on behalf of the speaker and those they identify with, to justify their attitude. I suspect this underlying attitude is what these "laws", codes of conduct, whatever you wish to callt them, are really motivated by:

    The implicit position is essentially "You're not as good as us until you accept that you are an unimportant individual." This implies that the person who accepts their own unimportance, gains (moral) superiority over others who have not accepted it, and forms an elite with the right to criticise them.

    This exceptionalism can't be justified by anything but circular logic: it must always fall back upon the superiority of the premise that all others must be equal to any alternative beliefs.

    "All are equal, but those who believe in the doctrine of equality are more equal than others."

    Very Orwellian, isn't it?

    Actually, no, it's not. It's 'progressive' bullcrap.
    Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.

    Excellent point.

    Good luck enforcing the legislation of mental activity. That would take some serious and expensive R&D; even power isn't worth that price.

    I recommend you don't think.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...
