OMG: Does anybody else get tired of the ignorant shit that ends up online?

Sometimes just being online and knowing that some people actually believe all the crap posted on the internet, makes me want to cry.

  1. If it makes you want to cry I'm going to assume you're far left, female, and under 25: get your nose out of political matters. You clearly think with your heart and not your brain, so we don't need you giving your opinion on political matters.

    1. Yes, because one can't have empathy and think logically. Great comment, fucktard.

    2. You actually can't, seeing as how logical thinking and empathy stem from two different parts of the brain which do not function well simultaneously.

      Doing politics with empathy means you end up like Germany and Sweden - getting raped to death.

      Doing politics with logic, and making hard decisions means you end up like Japan and Denmark, nice and safe.

    4. If being online gets you butthurt enough to spew incoherent ignorant bile, I'm going to assume you're far right, male, and under 25: get your nose out of political matters. You clearly think with your emotions and not your brain, so we don't need you giving your opinion on political matters.

    5. 1b - Clearly the part of the brain that thinks ignorantly would be even LESS likely to function alongside logical thinking, since logic and ignorance are complete opposites. A country that operates on ignorance alone would be 10x more fucked than one that operates on empathy alone.

      Not to mention that dismissing empathy entirely is just fucking stupid. Logic is only cut & dry for math. When it comes to human lives and things like politics that govern them, logic becomes relative. It depends on your frame of reference: does "logical" mean what's best for you, what's best for the country, or what's best for humanity? I mean, logically, if you think about what's best for the Earth as a planet, we may as well all commit suicide. But looking at it from the perspective of what's best for humanity, that obviously seems very illogical.

      Assuming that governments are making decisions based on what's logically best for their people, how is that NOT being empathetic? That's the entire job of the government is to have a representative organization to solve a group of people's collective problems. You can't do that without empathizing with the people. Even in the examples you gave, Japan and Denmark both still operate empathetically as well as logically. They have many public services and safety nets. Denmark gives out tons of welfare money every year. Doing politics with logic AND empathy is what ensures you end up nice and safe. If the government were to simply be logical with no empathy, that would be Ancient Egypt or Nazi Germany. Good for the government but shit for the people.

    6. @1e, 1b here. But /r/theredpill told me that if I become purely logical, I can manipulate women into sleeping with me and stop being sad when they reject me, so logic must be all powerful. How can some human faculty with that much power not be enough to run a country? Does not compute. women. sex. money. feminism. SJWs. brain malfunction. must kill all women...

    7. "the part of the brain that thinks ignorantly"

      LMAO, and what part of the brain is that mate? The one you're using right now to talk bullshit out of your ass?

    8. 1g - You're just making yourself sound even more ignorant. Because dismissing logical reasoning to protect your own ego, as you're doing now, produces absolutely NO brain activity, right?

      https://books.google.ca/books?id=4e5BNcp-yVgC&pg=PT43&lpg=PT43&dq=mri+confirmation+bias+brain&source=bl&ots=iYK3WVcVDm&sig=oHgAXHQiJIKoxX4NKVKJh9kUnXQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjx5rejq__LAhXDloMKHbheAx8Q6AEIMjAC#v=onepage&q=mri%20confirmation%20bias%20brain&f=false

      "The scans showed that the part of the brain associated with reasoning (the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex) was not involved when assessing the statements. The most active regions of the brain were those involved in processing emotions (orbit frontal cortex), conflict resolution (anterior cingulate cortex) and making judgements about moral accountability (posterior cingulate cortex)"

      In other words, ignorance is at base an emotionally charged way of making decisions. Your points make no sense, and it's very telling that you would get so hot & bothered in the name of defending ignorance.

    9. None of those things are "the part of the brain that thinks ignorantly"

      Look up the definition of "ignorant".

      BTW I'm now even who posted 1, I'm just a psych student laughing my ass off

    10. Ignorance: the state of being unaware, often used to describe individuals who deliberately ignore or disregard important information or facts.
      Confirmation bias is willful ignorance. I posted the results of an MRI scan of the brain during confirmation bias. You're doing nothing but arguing trivial semantics.

      If you really are a psych student, then good luck in exams lol. You obviously need it badly.

    11. 1j, you've implied that confirmation bias is rooted in emotional thinking. That seems believable enough. But that in itself doesn't extend to our emotional centres being "the part of the brain that thinks ignorantly," as you put it, or the source of all discordant irrational thought. It just means there's a plausible connection between confirmation bias and emotion.

      In fact, other credible sources argue the exact opposite - that our emotions are actually what structure and organize rational thought, rather than disrupting it. Paul Ekman is the most obvious, high profile example that jumps to mind.

    12. You think you can go around talking about the "part of the brain that thinks ignorantly" then just cry that it's semantics, lmao. Wow.

      See 1k.
