Just to follow up on my earlier comments. This is where I see most SJWs (social justice warriors) fail in their reasoning. It’s not that their motives and mores are wrong, nor are their intellectual capabilities. But when you place all your intellectual rationales upon a moral foundation without the undergirding of the proper philosophical perspective of attitude and conscience then you draw the wrong conclusions. Every. single. time. Without exception.

Any conclusion derived from the wrong attitude will lead you further from the truth, because it inflames passions, when what rationality requires is dispassionate analysis. This is why Winston Churchill said: “If you’re not a liberal at 20 you have no heart, if you’re not a conservative at 40 you have no brain”.

Finally, here is the greatest quote I’ve ever read on the subject.


by: Charles Swindoll

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.

I hope that this helps to clarify your understanding of my objections and the intent of my comments.
