As Anonymous Conservative has spent literally a whole book intoning, the only thing r-type idiots understand is mockery and rejection from the ingroup. If mocked well and enough, they will go quiet. Perhaps some of the brighter ones will do some research or listen to counterarguments. You are doing them a favour by mocking them. Don’t be cruel, there is rarely a need, but don’t be a pushover either.
One of the worst things you could do is treat them as your intellectual equal, they haven’t the merit. They cannot process what you say on the whole, just what you do. If you must speak reason, talk down to them until they’ve made it clear they understand (read: never, if they got it they’d believe it too). If you’ve reached the end of your tether, remember their flavoured choice of terrible decision-making will give them a terrible life, decades of suffering and you can’t say they don’t deserve it if they’re the brattish entitled type who starts these things. You don’t have a duty to go around rescuing people from themselves (unless you literally do, in which case I say: be HIGHLY selective and expend the resource of your time as if it has value, you aren’t a tax-exempt charity, you’re a human being).
The internet has acted as a microphone to the most attention-whoring vapid segments of society which would otherwise go unheard by the rest of us. This is why I often cover the content of other people, preferential to my own. It isn’t arrogance or keeping myself back from the fray, I would rather draws on hundreds of perspectives for empirical reasons.
If you are concerned in a misanthropic vein, the advice I would give is to recollect how rare this present situation is and how few in number these (loud) people truly are. Cultural, political, sociosexual etc. All they have is noise. We are in the eye of the storm, through the looking glass, down the rabbithole etc. Change is the only inevitability in history. Will you adapt? Darwin states you will survive. What are you worrying about? Why have empathy for people who wish your destruction? Did their pleas of the ‘nobility’ of self-loathing affect you? Would you put a gun to your own head for them? What are we fighting for here?
You owe it to yourself to answer these questions in your mind and decide on sufficient convictions. I shan’t tell you what to think.
I like this guy’s voice btw. Good RP, OP. Accent game strong.
