Conversations with Americans

Postby Wolfeye » March 3rd, 2016, 8:51 pm

I've noticed something about having conversations with Americans- they are always trying to figure out how you're wrong. ALWAYS looking for something to "mark with the red pencil" & when they can't find fault for long enough, they disengage & drop the subject or cut to the. They don't want to talk with anyone about anything if they can't figure out some way that the other person is an asshole!

It's like they're a self-esteem junkie & they can't "cook a fix" from what's there, so they get pissed off & leave or just designate the other person the "bad guy" & move on. It's not always simply thinking that agreement equals defeat, it's getting a rush from finding fault- as if it cancels one of their faults out in the future or something. I've heard about the 100% or 0% theme, where someone thinks they're either the very best or the very worst. I guess if they're the Very Best, that means other people are the worst- since those people are not them/the Very Best. Works that way with countries, as well. Ever notice how when you point out a problem in America, the other person you're talking to frequently starts comparing it to some batshit-crazy thing in another country that might not even be true? They frequently would say things like "Love it or leave it" or "If you don't like it, you can just GET OUT!"- so, basically, "Wallow in whatever problems or exile." Maybe that's part of why things don't get fixed here?

Yup. This is why I quit talking to them. Even my former "friends." People look for even the smallest chance to be an asshole for no reason.

The majority of Americans are unfettered jacka.sses. They exist in solipsism that they are only thing that exists and nothing else does.
Megalomania (e.g. 1up-on-ya (including whistleblowing to get one fired or to have a greater known advantage over), quid pro quo (both sexual harassment and Latin meaning)
Sociopathetic (anti-social yet superweird and estranged from society)...I believe most MiGTOW's are sociopathetics.
Ask Fschmidt...he would tell you.
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.

"Solipsism"- didn't know that one. It's a bit weird, considering that "proving" something basically amounts to "getting other people to agree"- something that is not the self-contained action it's referenced as. It doesn't all hinge on the person that's talking, since the listener can always withhold agreement- just like paying for something.
