Linguistics

I love how people make blanket statements, but then totally mean another thing in word and action. Example, people who say, I'm not a [insert ideology they're not: Marxist, Racist, Fascist], but I think [insert the typical ideological conclusion they claim not to be]. Okay, here's your chance to stereotype me.

I'm not a Maoist, but I...

...would censor virtually all of my music in favor of only the Beatles and bands you like.

And then I'd protest, and you'd run me over with your tanks just like in Tienneman Square. You jerk. I should kill you for this.

I mean, wait, because we're just joking here.

"...can't believe Bill Gates has more money than I do! I'm just as smart. I'm a hard worker. It's unfair that he has such an advantage with his multi-billion dollar company. I think the government should divide up his business appropriately and give ownership according to need. We should all be given a fighting chance damnit!!"

...slaughtered Josh Waitzin (chess player from Searching for Bobby Fischer), americanized his identity to jeff watkins, and beat, tortured, and killed anyone who played the game because it was against our great leap forward.

Tricky subject Jeff. But on the topic of people saying they are not whatever it is they are not. When you think about it how often do we all have a comment or judgement about something? To say your not is a lie in itself, because every opinion is offending the opposition. We are all a Racist, Fascist, judgemental in some way, even when we would like to think of ourselves as saints, truth is we are not. Gave my two cents you can toss them back if you want, I won't be mad. :-)

I like your topics here....so interesting.

Thank you for allowing me two "toss" my two cents back. You should know I would any way ;)

With regard to your statement, I agree and disagree with it. Yes, we often think of ourselves as more than we should. However, I've never been a saint (besides being the biblical classification of "saved"). I am a wretch; a sinner. By disagreeing with an opinion we're not necessarly offending the opposition. We're simply disagreeing with one's position. When I say, I'm not a racist. I mean it. I'm not. What's the definition of racism? One who dislikes and has ill will toward somebody based soley on the color of their skin or nationality. I don't dislike anyone on those conditions. Furthermore, if I said, "I'm not a racist, but I hate niggers, even though I like black people." Although I'm affirming that I don't hate black people I'm still disliking them because I'm categorizing one supposed type or group of them, which is still being racist. Do you see my point. That is what I dislike.

*My use of the "n" word was simply to make a point. I hate the word and I never wish to use it.
