It's better than supporting a systematic mass culling. Trust me, I've said both in public.

To be fair, I only support sterilization, only.

I don't actively support war efforts. But I'm objective enough to recognize noteworthy benefits when I see them. Pretending there isn't a benefit is as ignorant as pretending there are no negative consequences. Most of the time, people don't even listen. All they hear is that I'm pointing out a benefit and instantly assume I'm some kind of psycho.

Things have positive and negative consequences. Almost everything.

I agree. I feel like ignoring the truth, regardless of how distasteful, is probably not a good policy.

Not even for just population control, though. War is good for advancements, too. There are tons of things that were invented due to war and during war.

Yeah. I was talking to friends over a few pitchers the other week and we had a nice talk about how people seem to work better under pressure, which somehow led to talking about war and the advancements brought about that might have otherwise taken decades. Amazing. I was also talking about how people and lives are not of equal value. Some are worth more than others and the value of a person fluctuates. Didn't get as much support for this but it was still interesting.

I try to stay the same IRL versus my online identity. Just like IRL, I carefully formulate what I should say given the environment I'm speaking in online. There is, however, a slightly more childish, hyperactive side of my psych that usually comes out when I'm fangirling over something I like, or am (easily) overcome with emotion, but that all happens behind carefully locked doors. That's my philosophy. It's better not to grow up and be a little weird.

Blah I'm completely talkative online while offline I'm extremely quiet lol. Other then that I can't think of anything else lol.

Yes and no. I speak my mind and the truth more often than not on line and IRL.
I can be quiet on line or IRL.
I probably troll a little bit on line and i dont really try to piss people off IRL i guess.

I'm the same IRL. Because I can just as easily pick and choose who I want to speak with and do with my time as I do here~!
And I try to be pretty upbeat about my life in general! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

I felt that way a lot back in middle school/high school. I gave off a way perkier persona online, when in actually I was a shy loner. Or maybe I was naturally upbeat and just didn't have a means of expressing it offline? Nowadays I feel ... more like myself. Like my actual personality and how I talk online have finally meshed. Only difference being is that I have a way better sense of diction online and can write well, whereas in real life I stumble words out of anxiety and can barely hold a conversation with strangers.

I dont talk very much on forums or anything
And it is not that I am different irl than on the internet
Its just that i show less of myself irl than on the internet
It is easier for me to talk on forums and express my opinion as it wouldnt really impact my life
One mistake irl could get you in deep shit

I'm the same IRL but I feel like I can be more open and be myself online, as I'm quite a closet animefan for example.
