We are Not Defined by Our Politics

A female friend dumped a great guy because he didn’t want to hear another word about the conspiracy. “My thoughts of a mate died that day.”I told her she made a mistake.

by Henry Makow PhD

A friend, a single woman, wrote:  “My last significant relationship that lasted about 10 years…
Software engineer, making good money, very handsome, Marine. Talk to me please! Any new existential thoughts?
Towards the end of our relationship (and he was a good man, decent, nice to animals, family man, moral, would never beat me or starve me and so on…) I was waking up big time to the Satanic Conspiracy (and he just wanted to stay in his very, little, tiny, box.)
He laughed at me and thought I was a tin hat foil person.  I remember the day he said to me, “I  don’t want to hear about anything you have to say or think about what is going on ever again”.  My thoughts of a mate died that day.
I don’t see myself as the typical female that I meet day-to-day.  Concerned about stupid 3 d things.  Never thinking beyond fashion and the latest fad, how they are aging or what their home décor looks like. I cannot bear it.
A lot of women are really stupid. But there are equally numbed out men. It’s a wasteland Henry. —
I replied:
As you know, if I insisted on political sympathy from my wife, I would be divorced. I think you made a mistake dumping that guy. A marine, he was imprinted with a certain set of beliefs and has a right not to be confused or challenged. Marriages must be based on what you agree on, not what you don’t. Don’t make the conspiracy your obsession.
She responded:
But…where do you get that feeling that someone “gets you?”. Do you ever worry about those who don’t get the BIG PICTURE?
DIVIDE AND CONQUER

  1. It is well known that anyone who joins the services gets brain washed
    of course he cant think for himself, its what military training is all about
    How else could you get men to go across the world and bomb people they have never met
    including schools and hospitals, just because they are brown people ?
    Dump the idiot and find a non military man who is able to think
