Are You A Sucker?

April 18, 2011 10 comments

Ever wondered if you are a sucker, working against your best interests and trying to attain what does not exist? Wonder no more-

1. Do you live to gain more acceptance from the people around you?

Why interacting with people is necessary for existence, you might have found that agreeableness beyond a certain point does not improve the outcome of an encounter. I am not suggesting that converting everyone you meet into an adversary is desirable, but consistently treating people better than they treat you is not a rational strategy.

Acceptance from other people has NO worth in the contemporary western world- when people who are ostensibly your friends, relatives or spouses will turn on you for very small amounts of money or potential gain. Though most of you do not realize it, this is one of the fatal structural flaws of the current system, one that will be exposed by stress or unanticipated events.

2. Are you loyal to any larger group?

Whether it is race, religion, country, language or corporation- loyalty to larger groups has ceased to be of any use to most individuals. In previous eras, such loyalty was sometimes rewarded with gains when ‘your’ group won over another. Today, loyalty to any group is rewarded by more demands and no gain. Indeed the converse is often true, as loyalty is often rewarded by exploitation and impoverishment.

Don’t believe me? Have you ever been consistently rewarded because of faithfully supporting your race, religion, nationality or employer? Ever?… So why care?

3. Do you support traditional institutions and ways?

Getting married guarantees divorce and or life-long suffering. Having kids guarantees your having to pay child support. Buying a house guarantees a life-long mortgage. Supporting the ‘free market’ and ‘capitalists’ ensures your poverty and deprivation. Believing ‘scientific experts’ ensures sub-optimal outcomes. Getting a university education ensures that your slavery through student debt.

Do CONservatives guarantee you a decent life under their system? and can you trust them? What about LIEbertarians and their ‘free market’ utopia? is it likely to work? LIEbrals are not much better, as they want to make you live in poverty, deprivation and squalor to placate “mother earth” or some other bullshit ideology.

Did you notice one common thread through all these deceptions?

They all require you to believe in stuff which cannot be objectively measured, quantified or evaluated.

Example- You do not require faith to see that a binocular magnifies far away objects. You do not require faith to see that antibiotics can treat infections. You do not require faith to see that spending time outdoors can tan or burn your skin. You do not require faith to see that most women like a mildly painful spanking from a guy they like. You don’t require faith to enjoy an enthusiastic and skilled blowjob from a mediocre looking woman.

But you require faith to believe that being ‘nice’ to a woman makes her horny. You require faith to believe that the woman you married will not screw you over and stick you with the bills. You require faith to believe that the government, your employer or any business will not screw you over. You require faith to believe in ‘free market capitalism’ or any other ideology.

Unwarranted belief = Potential sucker
