In Defense of Brainwashed Sheep
    #1335851 - 02/25/03 07:40 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I might be mistaken, but it seems to me like a common pattern here is to implicitly claim some kind of intellectual superiority to all of the "TV watching brainwashed sheep out there". It is my sad duty to inform you that eating mushrooms does not make you any smarter than them. Dont get me wrong: i despise fascism and the Patriot act (1 and 2) as much as anyone else here does. Unfortunately, it is quite clear, from the results of the 2002 election, that "we the people", meaning the majority of voters, believes otherwise. The "brainwashed sheep" arent as stupid as many ppl here seem to think they are: everyone in the US has access to the same information; and they all know the media lies; and the truth about Shrub, 9/11, etc., etc. If they choose not to act, they might have a good reason. In any case, the voters have made their decision; and we must take it in good faith that the decision was well informed. Failure to do so is an unforgiveable act of intellectual arrogance, which is all too common, and renders your point completely worthless.

With that in mind it is my opinion that there are a few people on these boards who are quite intelligent.  More intelligent than the average sheep.  I agree that taking mushrooms doesn't make anyone smarter than the rest of the sheeple but no intelligent person on these boards would ever make such a claim.  Just my AU$0.02 (which is at the moment worth about US$0.01, but it is rising :smile:

"everyone in the US has access to the same information; and they all know the media lies; and the truth about Shrub, 9/11, etc., etc. "

AOL is the biggest internet provider and they are filtered and some people (the very poor) cant get information like us on the net

but I bet they still know the government is fucking them (hell why say government , when corporations run EVERYTHING now) :mad:

Mushrooms might not make you smarter but they do make you more conciouss. That is why the United states government doesn't want you using them.

Not on the evidence of this board. If you're an asshole you stay an asshole no matter how many mushrooms you take. Mushrooms can point the way but you have to want to change and do the work. Taking the mushrooms alone isn't enough.

the government isnt fucking anybody. people fuck themselves. arguably, some people have to work harder to get someplace in this world... just look at colin and condi. but how the fuck do people argue that the american government is oppressive.... would you rather be a slave in north korea or iraq?

yes... yes I ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT IF YOU WORK HARD YOU WILL DO WELL IN AMERICA. After growing up in a low income family, working hard in school... getting scholarships and working in college, I make a good living and am a dutiful american citizen. Nowhere else in the world are you guaranteed pursuit of life and liberty.

Those who believe everything they read on sites such as GNN are just as brainwashed as those who believe everything on CNN.

In my opinion voters are deliberately misinformed to draw them to one candidate or another...
It would be better to vote who runs for leadership and increase the number of candidates and have a neutral party provide the information each candidate wants to represent them. Otherwise its pick the lease of two evils, or worse yet a popularity contest bases on which persons lies are more convincing! :mad:

That reminds me of a joke...

Question: How can you tell when a politician is lying?

Answer: His lips move.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

yes... "if they want" and if "willing to work a little bit". it's far easier to sit in front of the TV and absorb corporate media bullshit.

i disagree. if you come to this board, you have an interest in politics and the situation in the world and in america right now. you may even do some actual research on your own. the people on this board, are, on average, better informed and more aware then your average apathetic american consumer. i'm sure of that.

i also think that mushrooms, in general, do indeed make one more intelligent.

And how do you presume to know what other ppl know and what they dont know?? If you cant answer that question ("The hurdy-gurdy mushroom man told me" doesnt count), then your just projecting the apathy onto ppl without any real reason for doing so. They prolly go to boards that you dont, so does that make you any less apathetic??
