This is just the beginning, there are two types of people in the world, those with an internal sense of self and those with an external sense of self. Picture in your mind a human standing inside a sphere made up of small manufactured sections all made by the same process. These form the world of those with an externalised sense of self. Each piece of this world is real to those that manufacture there own world. When you remove one of these pieces with a truth, when you point out the error in one of these pieces with a truth, you dismantle the whole structure. If one piece is wrong then the whole is wrong, if one piece is removed then the whole structure collapses. For those that are honest a new sphere can be created, a new world view, a new process of manufacture. For those that are honest the investment of truth is in the process of creation of the pieces of the externalised sense of self. The construction of a new more honest self is a renewing process and welcomed. For the dishonest the investment of truth is in the structure, all truth is held within the view. Truth is not a necessary part of the construction of the pieces only the structure itself. This why facts become irrelevant to such people, the truth only has relevance to the constructed world and not the pieces of the construction or the process of making them. What does not fit into this world view is irrelevant or ignored or not capable of comprehension or not correct. So be warned, when you point out an error in one of the pieces of this constructed world and remove all options for redefining the encombant truth that shines a light on the error, or remove one of the pieces of the the construction, then you collapse the whole structure. The world view held by such people collapses and there is no means available to them to reconstruct another. You have in essence killed them, there is nothing left of them, they have nothing left. A person with nothing left has nothing to loose and nothing to live for, you are dealing with someone who’s only motivativation will be revenge at any cost and has a singular driver, the drive for self preservation of a now collapsed sense of self. The only way to reconcile a reconstruction of the self is to destroy what ever or who ever what it is that is revealing the truth. An insatiable and non reconcilable appetite. You are dealing with a person driven by the strongest driver we have, the need for self preservation, a singular goal of elimination with no cultural, social, spiritual, emotional or ethical restraints. They lack the ability to reconstruct a new world view with the new truth so they cannot be reasoned with ,they cannot be persuaded, they cannot be bribed. This will be your enemy. Not to be to morbid though , the winning is in the mastery of self, the ability to instill within you the truth of the world, not to instill your truth into the world.
One of the defining characteristics of those with an externalised sense of self is that their sense of connection comes in the form of contracts. If I visit you then you must visit me, if I do this then this is expected in return, you are required to conform to my sense of reality if you are to be part of my world, if you break the contract then you betray the other party and must be excommunicated. This why and how group think, group behaviour, group dress, etc become entrenched. To those that have an internalised sense of self, a sense of connection is made through sameness, held within you. When you meet with or communicate with those of like mind you both feed and are fed. All are strengthened, all grow. Those with an externalised sense of self are by nature parasitic, you may have come across people who just leave you drained. So seek out like minded people, make sure you can feel their honesty. They will feed you and you will feed them with real sustenance , you will not need a constant supply and in between such encounters you will find solace in your search of self. You will be your own best friend surrounded by like souls. Know that your not alone , just on your own road. Search out the honest and true of heart, these are your friends, they have always been your friends, they will always be your friends. Your friendship will not be diminished by time or distance, they will walk beside you on your road because they care not about the road they care for you. Be strong, be honest and you will see them.
Those with an externalised sense of self even have there own language. Because there world construct is externalised they are never responsible for things that go wrong in their world. They are not connected to the their world they merely live within it. So it is that it is always someone or something else’s fault. They have no choice in what they do. It is always someone else’s responsibility to fix whatever is wrong. If something needs to be fixed then someone else should do it or someone else should pay.
Here’s an example. This person is an Emily Lindin, she stated ”Sorry. If some innocent men's reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”
So I think that the unconsentual taking of anothers virtue and consequent soiling of reputation are classed as rape, I may be wrong.
So when this person advocates and supports the non consensual taking of another’s virtue and reputation, what is she advocating.
Not only that she assumes the virtue of another, a price she is willing to pay, she is paying nothing of her own it will be as she states some innocent party who pays.
My mind boggles that such a person is even listened to, a person that would sacrifice an innocent, who would support the forceful theft of virtue and reputation.
This type of thinking would put the fox looking after the hen house and think that it’s a good idea. She should talk to the victims of such thinking and see how they feel about it. If push came to shove, she would sacrifice you and praise herself for the effort.
Have you ever heard the phrase “ I can’t do anything right “, or , “ no body likes me “ , or , “ everything is wrong “, or , “ nothing works” , or , “ they/we/you should do or pay for such and such “.
Steer clear of these type of people, they may be friendly but they are not your friends.
