Politics Are Important: Your Opinion On Them is Not

Recommended Posts

Not sure what's up with this current generation of furries in the past two years, but let me make it simple: Your thoughts, opinions and tweets on current day political trends are wrong, boring, lame, uninfluential, uninspired and uninteresting. The only people that care are the other people who are seated next to you in the echo chamber.

tl;dr-

Would you agree then that actions are more important?

Do I think actions speak louder than words? Yes.

Do I think actions won't matter outside of a very few, select circumstances, because most people who get worked up over politics are a bunch of irrelevant nobodies that nobody gives a shit about? Ding ding ding, we have a winner.

Might as well do whatever we want then (within some reason) since it matters little what we do ^__^

How does one define a fact when all our perceptions of reality are based off of our social location and most of the facts we receive have not been verified by our perceptions, rather that of others who have perceived it communicating it to us with words that can all be taken subjectively by our own interpretations? :v

As someone who has been on that carnival ride many, many times,
my permanently-misplaced jaw can confirm that this is exactly what it does to you.

Also this makes me miss riding that thing. Shit.

I always find it super weird when people want to only have friends with the exact same politics as theirs. Like I get it but I also prefer having the perspective? I'd consider myself a socialist for example but one of my best friends is a die hard libertarian. And it's fine lol. It used to bother me a lot to talk to people who aren't in my "circle" but also I do live in the middle of the south so I can't afford to hate everyone that has different opinions on taxes and environmental issues. 

Like man idk. It's good to be passionate but it's better to have friends and branch out and get perspective because all the "Us vs Them" bullshit is just going to make it harder to reform anything if all we can do is yell about communism online. 

 

Also if you are passionate about politics! I highly suggest getting involved with your local political chapters and offering insight, as well as participating in your lager community with whatever you're passionate about. I've found it a lot easier to talk to people about environmental issues when I mention doing cleanup efforts, as an example. TL;DR version: yelling online isn't activism, telling someone to kill themselves over their preference in tax cuts isn't passion, etc etc just have like the tiniest bit of chill

In all reality unless if someone claims to be of any ideology or political view or w/e that is in direct harm to me, (trans don't deserve rights etc.) then I dimmadon't give a fuck about politics most of the time.

There's a lot of people who I am (was?) friends with but they've made politics such a big part of their daily being its hard to be friends with them cos they can't not bring it up and try to prod or challenge you over it as if they expect you to agree, and polite ambivalence isn't good enough. To hell with your opinion, to hell with your experiences, to hell with who you are, if you don't agree you're not a "comrade". The commies and alt-furry(!?) dweebs on twitter are unbearable. It's okay to have an opinion even if its a weird one but your personal crusade is a travesty.

I used to be really big into international conspiracy (this was before Trump got crowned) but it all got so tiresome. When you get invested in such a thing you learn to see threats everywhere around you. You see the influence of "them" in all your buddies. I'm glad I quit. It's not healthy. It encourages people to build echo chambers with walls that continue to shrink.

Everybody has the right to an opinion. A responsible citizen cares about his country as well as its politics. Even if he expresses his public opinion on social networks or if he does it in protest. And words have strength and value. Why then do we charge politicians for talks said so at random. We condemn them. Someone might deserve it, someone not. Do you remember the case of  Derek Fildebrandt? I will leave here the article https://calgaryherald.com/news/politics/a-very-fiery-and-short-political-career-derek-fildebrandt-wont-be-allowed-back-into-ucp and you can make your own conclusions.

The entire point made is that your (the individual) opinions and your protests are insignificant and nobody cares about them but you.

Also why are you debating a thread that has not had replies in 4 years.
