PV, do you seriously expect adults who see themselves as correct to doubt themselves?

Well I personally have to agree with the OP. The few political/semi political threads I have bothered to go on don't have people interested in debating. they have their own lil bubble they live in and assume your an idiot if you don't see things from their POV. I wouldn't go so far as to say anyone here is necessarily stupid. But jumping into political "debating" with petty insults and conjecture is poor form. Oh well, perhaps xIrishchickx was correct in assuming the "calibre of replies" from CR forums would be sub par.

Politics are annoying. That is about all I have to say.

What can you do? Crunchyroll is still just another breeding ground of moody weeaboos.

If you're looking for more rigorous discussion--CR certainly isn't the place to expect it.

I believe that most of the adults here, Usually in their last 20s and up, are surprisingly and needlessly stupid.


I know, I, the great PV, have shown his true colors. The fact that I am this self centered must surely be a surprise to you.


I will admit there are a lot of dumb people in their 20s and below, but I expected more from the adults here, I really do.
I admired adults for a long time, but it hasn't occur to me sometime back that with age, comes confidence in ones ability, or rather overconfidence, especially in our perceived rationality and wisdom that is expected with age, and it dawned on me.

To quote Judar's status quote, "The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge."

It makes sense, though I hate to just leave a quote here. Using someone else's words is hackneyed and lazy.

I mean, I thought I knew how to draw a functional bicycle on paper, but it has not occurred to me how a bike functions till I actually drew it, or attempted to, because I assume I knew. I didn't do well, suffice to say. In any case, many of us are not open to the possibility that we are wrong, and perhaps the opposing side is right. Maybe transgender mentally ill. Maybe marijuana is as bad as the PSAs suggested. I admit I dismiss things like Pizzagate without a real deep look into it, and I am pretty bigoted too against certain ideas.

Yet no one, on most sides of the debate, do not debate, but they argue, they cajole, they bully, insult, and harass. Honestly? From the recent political threads of yesteryear from Baron Trump's Autism to the recent defamation of Berkeley for having what they hosted and paid for ruined by outside agitators, and I'd say...I am wonderful. I have done a great job of attempting to understand either side. I am a god of logic and wonder. You cretins should appreciate me more, and follow my example.

I am just asking you try to not be idiots. Yes, you know who you are. Don't make me rattle off names. You can do that by assuming there is a side to everything, more than just the evil right wanting to keep people in poverty or I just being a social justice warrior when I clearly demand to be treated with respect in the face of insults.

Or something. Excuse me, I have to get coffee.



Haha, that's funny. Don't sweat it man. Relax, you'll get old some day. It's what humans do. As we get older our lives, philosophies and desires change. It's the human condition. Most people you find insufferable most likely had the same views as you do today. Most of my friends were extremely liberal back in the day, now they're conservative. I understand you find it to be unreasonable, but that's the way it is. It's the difference between what should be and what is. It's the difference between and fiery heart which seeks to fight injustice and the heart that has been wounded and crushed fighting for those things. We sometimes (quite often) become that which we hated in our youth. The problem here is that the aged cannot remember their youth, and the young have not experienced life. Catch 22

That is not true. We learn primarily from teachers, and from the knowledge gathered in the past. There have been so many people smarter than us and better trained than us in all the various fields of knowledge and aspects of life; why shouldn't they be better at saying things than we are? Every time I write something, I'm always thinking that someone else probably already said what I'm about to say - much more intelligently that I'm going to say it. And what makes my opinion worth conveying if I'm not some kind of expert in what I'm talking about? Giving an opinion is incredibly self-aggrandizing. I feel like it's much more modest - and a lot classier - to quote someone who knows what they're talking about.
