It is. Read the essay 'Life Simulator' on Amerika.
All is explained.

And please forgive the God-awful picture. Brett sometimes does inexplicable things.

I hesitate to label absolutely everybody a leftist, simply because they get too wrapped up in the importance of intellect. Although, really, I believe that being too intellectual results in leftism.
I aim for balance, where the right tool is the one used, depending on the task at hand.

The problem with intellect, is that it depends, for its validity, upon a starting baseline that conforms to Reality.
This being so rarely the case, the validity of intellect itself, is thrown into question.

Good observation, and a fine distinction.
You are right.
There is nothing wrong with engaging intellect in order to get somewhere.
There is plenty wrong with hiding behind it to snipe at uncomfortable truths.

You are mistaking my stance for something you term 'buying-into'.
I read a comment by somebody else that said pretty much the same thing.
If there is an anti-intellectualism movement, then I am not aware of it.
But if there is, I can see why.
As with most things, I invented my version, myself, by myself.
Because of the chaos I've seen between self-identified intellectuals.

On my journey outwards, into the universe, I encountered only calm, peace, grandeur and order.
I came to be part of it, in all its timeless vastness. It accepted me, without hesitation.
I lingered for millennia, and nothing threatened or warned. I was it and it was me.
I assume that was God, and I was included in it.
Whatever it was, it really needs no name.

No earthly experience references any of that.
I feel at a loss, among what seems to be madness, in a world of people.

But you see, I know my true nature.
The nature of others is mystery beyond mystery.

Thank you. A bit intellectual for me, but I'll work at it.
Do you feel the universe operates without purpose?
That it is completely random?

Nihilists claim there is no meaning in anything.
Perhaps that is why they so often fail to understand what I write.
They assume it has no meaning.
In spite of the fact it does.

Why would a nihilist write anything?
Whatever it is they write, it would have no meaning.
If communication is not their goal, why write at all?

Do nihilists assign any meaning they choose, to what they read?
Do they have no meaning to convey, when they write?

Who can explain this to me?

Some of you characters are still in the education system, or not so long out of it.
From what I am coming to understand, education nowadays is more about indoctrination than about education.

I am running into more and more young people, especially on forums, that seem completely unable to learn anything that they don't already know.
There is this whole thing now, focusing upon proof for every single word, being demanded, before consideration of the message even takes place.
What is this? What's going on?

People tell me politics is a big subject in schools. Biased leftwards, from what I can see.
It seems generally unpopular, but from the evidence, it warps kids anyway, into equality-obsessed machines that become enraged at anyone who mentions things they know nothing about. What they really do know about, is being so utterly self-centered that it boggles the mind.

Is there truth in this? Can anyone shed light?

There are so many special-interest groups these days, that must - by law - be specially catered-to, that it gets to be something of a minefield for the rest of us.

Such groups of individuals have one thing in common: They all demand special treatment.
But how are the rest of us supposed to know who they are, in order to afford them this special treatment? By the time one finds out they are members of a special protected group, it may already be too late.

It would, perhaps, be a good idea to have such individuals tattooed on their foreheads with whatever specific grievance it is that must be taken into account by everybody else.
That way, roving gangs of normal people would know to avoid them, altogether, lest they become criminals without realizing it.

This way, there would be a price, of sorts, to pay, for that special protection afforded by law, while at the same time affording protection to the innocent who may otherwise fall foul of legislation.

Not a bad idea. You'd see people with tattoos proclaiming things like:
Gay. Muslim. New Age. Goth. Religious Nut. Disabled. Punk. Short. Old. Feminist. Ethnic. Nutcase. Victim.

That way, they would be safe from everybody else, while everybody else would be safe from them. Nobody would be forced to wear one of these tattoos, but if one elected not to, then they would be unable to later claim that they were victims of a hate crime.

Sorry old boy. Rule infringement gets you banned. Take a week off and think about it.

High time, too. Everybody's dying from anti-depressant poisoning.

What a great experience. I've never seen you so communicative :)
Cops have really messed me up over the years.
Then again, I wasn't always Moses.

I've had a shoulder problem my whole adult life, that started with a cop twisting my arm, because I said: "Why?"
Shit happens. There sometimes doesn't need to be a reason.

There are a good many things you don't detect.
Here's one:
You don't detect that I mean what I say.
You still owe me an apology.

Lol :) That was a bit harsh, man. But oh-so-true.

DL: You are right. I have many crazy stories of being harassed by cops. And others. But who needs more crow stories, anyway? I have more important things to discuss, now.
