Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Do you tell others about your philosophy or 'let sleeping dogs lie'?« on: Yesterday at 04:58:22 pm »
I can see benefits to both sides... Personally, I don't tell most people as it isn't really a topic that comes up in conversation. I've actually only told one person I know about my personal philosophy, and it's only because she has a very similar philosophy. My inner circle of friends has a pretty limited grasp of my indifference, but that's only because they've known me for years and things sometimes come out inadvertently.
What about you guys? Does your family know? I'm sure it would make for a nice dinner conversation with some more conservative parents.
"Telling" people about your philosophy is pointless. You might as well dance your sculpture. You might as well sing your cooking.
The simple best advice for writing also applies to philosophy: show, don't tell.
Live your philosophy. Be your philosophy.
If they are receptive, by your own actions, they will learn.
I agree wholeheartedly, given that my personal philosophy is entirely based on ridiculing other people's.
