Quote from: Fujikoma on October 27, 2020, 11:20:46 PMWell, I keep thinking about what I've read about cults, and it's not necessarily the dumb and/or ignorant who get wrapped up in that manner of thinking. Some educated people have been sucked in by cult mentalities and encouraged to alienate friends and family until the cult is all they have left. After this alienation, if I recall correctly, pride can keep them from admitting they were in the wrong (after all, who wants to face that kind of shame?), as well as fear, what if they beg forgiveness and are rejected? Then they have nothing, no cult, no friends, no family.

Quote from: The Johnny on October 30, 2020, 05:09:34 AMFor whom i refuse to waste time on:1) Adversarial people with an intellectual disability.2) Racists, totalitarians and zealots of any kind.For whom sometimes i have the patience for:1) The "mentally ill"2) The unwillingly ignorant that either are not sealioning, or im so bored out of my mind that i dont careMy cognitive and emotional fuel can only go so far, when not only im trying to help friends and patients keep it together in the pandemic, but also trying to do all the work pertaining to the writing of a book.I really dont give a FUCK about one-liners that go nowhere, add nothing and arent even clever... i sometimes give a fuck about peoples issues online but that is entirely dependent on my relation to them, because it is, after all, even more emotional labour.I also dont need a speech about "echo chambers", diversity, instincts and tribalistic thinking with the addition of a slice of life short story to prove your point.People that dont contribute anything but expect to take regardless, are miserable and parasitic, and dont deserve even the privilege to be read.
