pmartshea asked: Why use your time pushing others to be the best they can be, when you can spend it focusing on your own life and being the best person YOU can be?


Answer:

liberatingreality:

The actions of others are relevant to my well being.  Understanding cause and effect is essential to self empowerment.  There is ultimately no justified indifference to the perspectives that others choose or have been conditioned to adhere to because these beliefs will determine their behavior and priorities toward me.  If others do not take responsibility for their thoughts, they will oppress me with their misconceptions (highlighting our current status quo).

My drive comes from an understanding that recognizes the empowerment of others as essential to my own.  Through challenging individuals to realize their potential, I indirectly challenge myself to achieve and maintain my own.  I have no desire to degenerate in complacency or remain isolated in my awareness.  Adhering to the cosmic priority in refinement and connection cannot take place within a status quo based on irrational ideologies utilized to maintain division.

"The very meaninglessness of life forces man to create his own meaning. Children, of course, begin life with an untarnished sense of wonder, a capacity to experience total joy at something as simple as the greenness of a leaf; but as they grow older, the awareness of death and decay begins to impinge on their consciousness and subtly erode their joie de vivre, their idealism – and their assumption of immortality. As a child matures, he sees death and pain everywhere about him, and begins to lose faith in the ultimate goodness of man. But, if he’s reasonably strong – and lucky – he can emerge from this twilight of the soul into a rebirth of life’s elan. Both because of and in spite of his awareness of the meaninglessness of life, he can forge a fresh sense of purpose and affirmation. He may not recapture the same pure sense of wonder he was born with, but he can shape something far more enduring and sustaining. The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death – however mutable man may be able to make them – our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light."

What kind of backwards logic is this?!What am I gaining? Life. If you aren’t living everyday like it’s your last, than you’re just wasting time. The future is just an abstract that never comes. All you truly have is now. Embrace it to the fullest.The truth is everyday could be your last and there’s no way to know when your number is up. And knowing this, why wouldn’t you live everyday like it’s your last?
This analogy just sucks. :)

"Dealing w/ Hamas is like dealing w/ a crazy woman who’s trying to kill u - u can only hold her wrists so long before you have to slap her."

Bill Maher (on his Twitter)

What I want to know is how this cut-rate loser ever got to where he is. He’s not funny, he’s grossly ignorant, and he’s just an asshole. Anybody who’s ever listened to this clown needs to reevaluate their thought patterns. The guy doesn’t know shit and is just an obvious media figurehead who spews whatever keeps his paychecks coming.

I guess if you’re giving points for how much evil you can get in one tweet…justifying war crimes, genocide, and domestic violence all in one tweet has to count for a few. Fuck you, Bill Maher.

Give me ten minutes to debate this clown and I’ll belittle him so bad, he’ll be trying to crawl back into the womb. :)

thespacegoat:

the fact women are viewed as being more sexy at 15 than 40 is the creepiest thing in the world

Uh…the 37,000 people who liked this post are the ones who think like that. Kids. Because nobody in their right mind thinks 15 year olds are sexy except 18-21 year old boys. 

These posts annoy me because they always promote some “fact” which is typically a generalization based on a person’s particular agenda. :)
