Love the paleo and 21 convention stuff but clearly have very little understanding of who Thomas Jefferson was all about. Cut the libertarian bull-shite.
This is a common comment for me to receive. It essentially says “I agree with and believe you are right on a staggeringly wide array of topics … with the exception of politics.”
What’s most tragic about this comment (besides the fact that I am NOT a libertarian) is that people aren’t more curious about their, usually very passionate, disagreement with me on this single specific topic. People just bury their heads in the sand on it, in spite of the fact that I have been at the spearhead of what amounts to one of the best comprehensive resources of knowledge in the world.
It’s as if viewers and readers go down a check list of topics that I spread information about, and rank what they find.
It’s an enormous anomaly staring people in the face, that they write off as insignificant or a fluke.
Who really believes I’ve been so diligent on such a wide spectrum of knowledge that I would make a glaring mistake and get something not a “little bit” wrong, but completely, utterly, and totally fucking wrong? The error is of course not with me, but with the individual who still has not grasped that contradictions are not possible, and that therefore there are no contradictions in reality.
To those that have grasped this concept my political convictions are similar if not the exact same to your own. In fact nothing else is even possible. The conclusions I have come to are logical and fully coherent. Anything else would be incoherent and inconsistent.
Hence the saying “Rational people come to the same conclusions.”
Of course they do. We’re all dealing with the same reality that exists independent of our ability to perceive it. This doesn’t make us all clones, it makes us sane and right. Yes, the borderline forbidden “right”; as in “I’m right and you’re wrong.”
Of further interest to me is the paradox that my political convictions are better, clearer, and more fully developed than any other set, yet, are what is most frequently disagreed upon. Few people hold my political convictions for example and call me “full of shit” when it comes to nutrition and exercise. It simply hasn’t happened yet, and it may never happen.
I think this is a reflection of the depth of thought required to come to the political conclusions I have. It’s higher level thinking that deals directly with life, death, and violence scenarios. Nutrition takes years if not decades to kill, and it kills slowly.
Sarcopenia in the face of a lack of proper exercise takes even longer to result in lowered quality of life, serious injury, and perhaps death.
The fact that politics ultimately deals with a gun in your face an immediate death requires serious moral courage to face and make the proper conclusions on. Many people lack this. Some will develop it in a long enough time span. Most will not.
