FORGET DIALECTICS

There are three existential positions –

  • STINKERS – Sociopathic evil bastards who are amorally concerned only with themselves. There own desires and self-esteem are their entire universe. Prone to conspiracy theories.  Narcisists.
  • BLINKERS – Can’t see past their own short term comfort and convenience. Self gratification high on the personal agenda. Prone to reacting to false positives, want to fit in. Reactionary rather than proactive. No moral or ethical foundations. Inclined to believe rather than know. Prone to popular fallacies like alternative medicine and political parties.
  • THINKERS – Try to be evidence based. Question assumptions behind actions and ideas. Pursue the notion of a civil society. Contingent thinkers.
