    Who is SophicDrippins?

    Your posts seem to be frustrating some people, perhaps we can learn something about our world if we can better understand you.

    SophicDrippins, do you consider yourself a racist?

    SophicDrippins, do you consider yourself a racist?
    No, I do not. I consider myself a truthist. I've gone on record several times trying to shake off the racist stigma everyone seems so determined to make stick in an effort to villainize me.

    I have almost zero interest in race. It's serenesam who keeps on and on with race and somehow I catch the flack. I'm more focused on the feminism that's destroying humanity, but that makes me a misogynist. If not for that, then they would find some other label to rally the mob against me.

    What's interesting is this desire to "categorize" me by learning "who is this guy" so they can attack me rather than my arguments, which is the same generalization they accuse me of with the racist label (that I attack someone for their race rather than their individual merits).

    I don't understand why the focus can't remain on my arguments rather than wandering off onto me. I have no interest in learning about Hal or Fsir or Ernest or even you, Brad, because that will only lead me to cognitive biases. For instance, Dronebee let it slip that he is a Nam vet with Irish and Native American blood, so now it's too easy to explain why he comes across as aggressive. I can associate his behavior with an entire class of people: The "Fighting Irish", the "Warrior Native", and the "dehumanization" taught by the military against the communist people of Vietnam. Personalization is dangerous to critical thinking and I'd rather not know any details about anyone.

    I can explain that.

    Ernest made the point:

    To which I made the point:



    We are born to hate and must learn to overcome it. The evidence indicates that you have it backwards.

    Ernest replies with:

    right because it's smart to hate things we have No information about? Just hate everything, all day everyday right. Sounds like an excellent way to build Strong Communities, No?
    And Dronebee:

    Oh.....Although mostly anecdotal, through my own personal observation, experience and evidence that is still ongoing, I remain convinced that we are in fact born trusting and altruistic..
    So we have two people (plus the "likes") who utterly refuse to observe the evidence because it threatens their preconceived notions about how reality should be.

    They not only refuse to cast their eyes on the evidence, but they also insist anyone who displays such evidence be demonized and banned.

    That is why I'm hated.

    perhaps we can learn something about our world if we can better understand you.
    Evidently so, but not the personal details about me, but observing the hatred for truth that people have. They have no interest in discovering the truth or the ultimate reality, but only reaffirming what they already believe... and they do that by any means necessary: gang warfare, witch hunts, defamation,,, it's nothing new.

    Intellectual debate with physical force. Might makes right. Whoever has the followers gets to define truth with force.

    And the real kicker is that none of what I'm saying threatens TZM at all. So what if we're born to hate and have to learn to overcome it? That just argues for a better environment for raising, which is what TZM is about. And it seems to me that if we're born altruistic and pure, then raising can only screw it up.

    One can justify (dress up) their 'opinions' anyway they want. 'One' piece of alleged evidence hardly settles any debate, much less this one.....its ongoing despite a little video representing the opinion sought.....IMO

    It is our opinions, our certainties of thought and our proclamations of certainty, our presentations of our own world view....

    That's how we tell other's 'who' we are.....no?

    *************

    The Opines expressed by SD (as shown both above and w/in his many denigrating posts) are;

    1. Assumptive 2. Over Generalized 3. Clearly Racist (the description of my own heritage above s/b evidence enough for anyone) and 4. They Fit a 'particular world view' that is known to be offensive, divisive, inflamatory, misogynistic and clearly and purposely mis-informed....due to the blinders required in order to hold such a world view.

    I mean c' mon, the guy flat out refuses to READ anything other than what 'fits his' world view, His Tribe...and has admitted this to us all numerous times, like its something to be proud of...or that 'Readers' are somehow waisting their time.

    What should anyone make of that kind of position when taken?

    As the posts show (those that haven't been removed ) Except on a few rare occasions, SD does not readily accept or entertain anyone elses opines, and especially anyone who it is 'assumed' has 'challenged' him (he cry's and complains about ad hominem's more than anyone) or 'his' world view without it being reduced to an obtuse and pointless 'playground' debate, instead of remaining one for adults.....

    SD admits that he 's not here to discuss or support TZM as much as show its weaknesses ....and the weaknesses of it members , despite the gnawing suspicion that he hasn't READ the book...or 'know's much about TZM, a RBE, Land Value's, Economics,...etc...and he has not successfully DEBATED a single aspect or concept presented by or w/in TZM Defined.....not that I've seen anyway......

    But of course, that's not why SD is here, is it?

    He's been asked by me....He's even been accused of being a PLANT by me......but he don't answer the question;

    .....so....Why bother to come here? Is it just for the abuse? Is it the 'dishing' out or the 'receiving' that gets him off....who knows? NOT ME ....and SD ain't telling....


    Hey SD......Tell us, Man.....What do you 'know' about war anyway? (Hint; This ain't it and I never declared it on you....another ASSumption?)

    ************

    ....some of them want to abuse you...

    Some of them want to be abused..... -Eurythmics

    ************

    One cannot debate with SD, because as the evidence shows.....He's always Right...Right?

    That's my take anyway.....


    Oh...and BTW; Most racists can never say, see or admit their racism....it upsets the cart too much...

    If you make a good point, I admit it.

    other than what 'fits his' world view, His Tribe...and has admitted this to us all numerous times
    Nonsense. I listen to Molyneux, Peter Joseph, Jacque Fresco, Richard Wolff, and just about anyone with any sense to them,,, conservatives, democrats, atheist and theists. It is you who are member of a tribe and refuse to listen to anything that may stray from your dogma, as evidenced by your continual b!tching about my posting Molyneux here.

    (he cry's and complains about ad hominem's more than anyone)
    Because I get them more than anyone. Calling me a name is not an argument.

    Why bother to come here? Is it just for the abuse?
    Nice of you to admit it.

    In the beginning, I came here for the interesting topics in hopes of enlightening discussions, but there is not intelligent life here that I can discern, just conceit in notions that were never well-thought-out; so I remain here to be a pain to the butts of people who can't stand me. If they were apathetic, then I'd lose all motivation. My hands are tied.

    I am the same way too except I don't think I pay much attention to mainstream stuff whether it be conservative or liberal. As I have said before, I consider myself an Independent with a more liberal bent. I listen to Stefan Molyneux, Peter Joseph, Jacque Fresco, Red Ice Radio, Radio 3Fourteen, watch TZM Youtube videos, and watch Youtube shows/videos with Abby Martin (when she had that show "Breaking the Set" on Russia Today and now "Empire Files"). I have been a follower and a huge fan of Abby Martin for a very, very long time going as far back as I can remember listening to her on Media Roots Radio:

    Radio | MEDIA ROOTS ? Reporting From Outside Party Lines

    So in summary or in essence, I pretty much enjoy anything that can be designated as "alternative."

    Oh yes, I could tell you're on the path to enlightenment the minute I saw your postings for the first time because it's evident that you're hungry for truth and refusing to be limited.



    Don't be pigeon-holed, labeled, but be formless. Don't just study one style or you'll miss the whole world.

    "Universality is the distinguishing mark of genius. There is no such thing as a special genius, a genius for mathematics, or for music, or even for chess, but only a universal genius. The genius is a man who knows everything without having learned it." Otto Weininger

    "Be careful reading health books or you may die of a misprint." - Mark Twain. Can you see the deeper meaning? You can't follow exclusively someone's teachings or you're defined by who they are and contained by their limitations.

    Mark Twain was so insightful...

    "Never let your schooling interfere with your education." - Mark Twain. That means the same thing. The original purpose of "school" was to train allegiance, not to educate, which was more of a side-effect tangential to the goal. Indoctrination impedes learning and freezes the water that is your soul.

    Stay thirsty my friends!
