I’m starting to feel sympathy for those who maintain their hallucinations. They simply cannot control it and to believe otherwise would result in their destruction (from their perspective).
It’s not about REASON. It’s about SELF-INTEREST to pass on one’s genes.
If you happen to perceive yourself to potentially lose the following by dissenting from the Collective, can you necessarily blame their minds from protecting them from utter, genetic destruction?
You might as well be asking them to put a gun to their head and pull the trigger.
I have friends (in Los Angeles & Seattle) that for merely holding Trump sympathetic views have essentially risked all five of the below. They remain silent about it, but they talk to me to vent.
1) Sexual partner
2) Friends & family
I imagine being in the situation my friends are in, trapped from being able to truly express who they are. Their only option is to flee the insanity and enter an area where they won’t be punished. Where they can have a chance to procreate.
Otherwise, the mind must self-sabotage. Stop the questioning. They must convince themselves to agree with the Collective. Or they will go insane.
It is the mind’s mercy to shut down free-thought.
REASON is overrated.
And if you consider that you have a family to raise, that’s an even greater incentive for you to shut your mind down. Much more evil things, than entertaining different views, have occurred for the “sake of the children.”
