174. Very erudite piece of work. Bravo.
Edited on Sun Aug-15-10 07:11 AM by political_Dem
But there's one thing. Because the hypothetical person is an idiot, he/she is Intellectually incurious. As a result, he/she would not take the time to heed your advice or to read what you've said. He/she would barricade him/herself within the world of the teabaggers because it is a comfortable atmosphere of like-minded souls. Anger, not ideas, are the things generated in such a coterie.

People such as the hypothetical person wouldn't stop to think about why he/she was feeling that way. Instead, they would only do what they are told despite the futility of their situation. The "idiot" just looks to be led by a louder firebreather.

To them, it is easier to lash out violently in full anger than to intellectually rationalize what is bothering them so.

Their world is one of fury, scapegoats and tilting at windmills.
