    I refer to “Bloody Socialists” at every opportunity, and sneer at The Forces of Progress.

    But I also avoid people who agree with me politically.


  5. Sir Barken Hyena says:

    If they argue honestly and without insults it’s not a problem, I don’t either. If I determine that they aren’t honest I won’t argue with them. Intellectually honest is what I mean here.

    I wasn’t always this way though, I used to get in some rancorous arguments. That’s unhealthy, and luckily age mellowed me like a fine smelly cheese.

    I ethnically cleanse them from the country I live in

    Mostly avoidance, too. I try to focus on why I like these people. Fortunately, there’s more to this world than politics. If nothing else, I try to keep myself from asking them how they can possibly believe such utter nonsense.


  8. Fenster says:

    I used to engage, and even argue, more than I do now. That is for two reasons. First, I found that engagement didn’t change much, that it tended to estrange those close to me, and that even if I did change a mind it wouldn’t change as much of the world as my feistiness was seeking for validation. Second, while I believed it was important to point out error, experience proved how often I was myself off-track, and in time I reflected, however uncouthly, that modesty in opinion was also a good policy.

Ever since the president was reelected, he’s gone crazy. When I turned the vacuum off, he was gone. I’m going to try that with everyone and everything that makes me crazy
