The only BEARFORCE1 slashfic forum on the Internet. Fortunately.
I was thinking about this during my commute to work this morning.Assuming one of our aims with BIP, etc. is to open minds, how do you deal with a defensive personality? Or do you?I'm just thinking you can start an honest and civil discussion with someone about BIP/Discordian ideas, etc. In general sort of terms of course.Then, if you are dealing with someone who tends to be quite defensive, you get to that point where something snaps in their head: "Wait, are you preaching to me?" or "Are you trying to convert me?" or something along those lines.Is there a way to diffuse this? Thoughts?
McDonalds, if you think about it, is the PERFECT example of life/lifestyles in the late 20th/early 21st century. Pink slime shaped like chicken nuggets, giant lawsuit-happy corporations suing people for using the prefix "Mc" no matter what the circumstances, marketing aimed at small children (Ronald, etc) to form life-long associations with the product, and the abysmally-effective "I'M LOVING IT" marketing ploy aimed at maintaining that association into the person's adult life...With the advertisement showing skinny, attractive people while in reality the AVERAGE customer is 45 pounds overweight.All style, no substance almost-food sold to brainwashed masses. It's AMERICA™, in a white paper bag.
