Dealing with Disingenuous People: 1

November 9, 2010 3 comments

A series on dealing with disingenuous people has been on my mind, for some time. I had previously hesitated writing about it principally because all reasonably effective remedies are “inhumane”. However, why should you care about the “humanity” of people who refuses to see others as human?

So let me begin by giving you the short version of my preferred way to treat disingenuous people.

By treating them and their progeny worse than they have treated, or are likely to treat, you. Show no mercy, whatsoever.

My reasoning behind this general course of action is fairly straightforward-

1] It is unlikely that your decency will be reciprocated, rewarded or paid back. Therefore you have no reason to be humane to them.

CONservatives who talk about self-sufficiency, fiscal responsibility and ‘pulling yourself up by your bootstraps’ should be left to die, suffer and rot even if they could be helped very easily. If their theories are good enough for a poor black guy, they ought to be good enough for them.

LIEbrals who blame salt, fat and other factors for illness like heart attacks and strokes should not receive ANY treatment if they suffer from such diseases. According to their own worldview, all diseases are due to their own personal lack of restraint.

2] Even if you are not the direct target of their disingenuity, what are the chances you won’t be in the near future? Can you really trust them?

The CONservative who complains about the sexual mores of someone might next find some aspect of your sex life immoral. The same applies for issues like drugs etc.

LIEbrals who like to show their ubermensch credentials by putting down ‘proles’ might do the same to you. Can you really trust people who consistently act like assholes?

3] Why are these people disingenuous? Behind the cover of ideology, morality, religion, manners or other assorted bullshit- it is about profit, control or sociopathy.

CONservatives and LIEbrals behave the way they do for robbing, abusing, impoverishing, mutilating, imprisoning or killing somebody else. Why not treat them appropriately?


Cartoons Are More Efficient: Nov 9, 2010

Good cartoon, and it explains why the democratic process in the US is so flawed. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again (as many have noted before).
