Tapa is one of the higher-quality posters here, IMO.
By the way, I'm not going to beg to be let onto the VIP forum. Honestly, if I can't post there, my days here are most likely numbered. The rest of this forum is like a psych ward.
Where do you live? Are you American...or are you from another country? What generation are you from? Are you 50+...these are all important questions, because they determine in large part how your view is shaped on the world, what forces shaped you, etc.
Unless you live under a rock, you would understand the need to talk about what's going...I mean what's REALLY GOING ON. Like, western civ is dying out completely due to arrested development, EQUALITY, and .......we pretty much know there's a reason behind & for it. We know pretty much "who's" doing it. Why would this offend you?
I don't want to be mediocre. I want to thrive and succeed and live happily and in a sane environment where I can prosper, but that' just isn't the case.
Something is controlling the entire world and virtually wants to totally destroy the west - it really, REALLY hates the west and western individuals.
You can sit there and point fingers and scoff. But there are questions.
Like, what do we do?
Obviously, it is too big a force to fight it - that won't work. ... so do we just adapt?
What else are we to do?
Even if we move to a different country - we still bring our mindset and mentalities with us, that's not our fault. It's just a consequence. Also, that transition is not easy - many times it's not even possible, so what are we to do?
Should we just accept and resign to arrested development as our lot in lives - resign ourselves to the garbage heap? It seems only the ignorant and simple are raised up and have enjoyment.
If we work hard, are upright - we'd be attacked in our own country in our own circles. It's only the simple that are praised, the rest are hated. Should we be hated by others? ..These are difficult questions.
The definition of inverted success in West has become doing nothing. Literally, doing nothing....being lazy, ignorant - you're praised and girls love you, people like you. You'll achieve 'success' in this inverted world. Once you travel outside that bubble to say - China, where I'm at, the Chinese have very different/traditional views on things. It's more like "how it should be"......and I realize that. But, if I act like this - a) it's not easy, much easier to be lazy/receive rewards for it...no incentive.
b) I'd get attacked even in my own office when surrounded by westerners that hate anyone who pulls ahead, tries to be excellent or exposes the EQUALITY to be sham, or pokes a hole through it/ holds traditional views - which ....are the driver behind being truly excellent.
As you can see, this is not an easy situation. For a reasonably intelligent, aware person it is nothing short of a nightmare. You can't use logic or intelligence, it just won't work; because it's a realistic problem...and there are many things just too big. I think it's just a matter of being street-wise, its like - Ok, this is just how it is. Now let me just live....
stop trying to solve everything out, stop fighting for justice, stop using your brain and logic to fight something you can't.
Once you answer these questions. Then I'll really get into a conversation with you.
Misery and happiness are only states of mind.
