Do you hate america, yet hide behind the freedoms it has given you?

Do you think you are better than everyone? Do you think everyone in the world should bow down to you and your huge brain?

If yes, you are another one of this site's, free thinkers.

Do you look at things for what they are and not for what everyone tell you what they are? Do you have your own spirit and believe in whats right and not the status quo?

If yes, then you are a free thinker.

Read Chiefwoohaw's sig line.....

"Free thinker" references are directed toward those with views generally considered in opposition to the general mindset of this board.

The ironic thing, is that this is something you see so much with college students. That demographic that is young and at least semi-intellegent, they see problems, and think they know ways to fix them. They see things, ready things, hear things, that open their minds, especially when taken from the small environment where they went to high school, and now are immersed into the significantly more diverse environment of a large univresity.


What they don't realize is:

A) One of the primary reasons they think they know how they can succeed where other have failed, is that they lack the experience of those older than them. Lack the wisdom that comes from seeing how the world 'really works'.

B) Lacking the qualitys described in 'A)', this group also ends up being so esily manipulated and misinformed because of their innate desire to believe in a better way. Face it, if you worked a grand but plausible lie into, say, the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, or the closing monologue between Kyle and Stan on south park, tens, if not hundreds of thousands of gullible minds could be swayed.

I agree that this is true but I think that the older generation has had that way of thinking forced out of them to the point that they just concede to the mass. :shrug:

As usual, you show your lack of life experience. Everything at your age is so black and white. Mainly because you are so one dimensional. Thinking that 'older generations' are conceding to the masses is a pretty ignorant statement. At least you are consistant.

Its funny you say that because in this same section there is thread aimed at the free thinkers of this website and it mainly shows a bunch of old people against the war.

THe Website is very Right Minded in comparison to a lot of other groups, and i am not entirely sure why.

Freethought
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that beliefs should be formed on the basis of science and logical principles and not be comprised by authority, tradition, or any other dogma. The cognitive application of freethought is known as freethinking, and practitioners of freethought are known as freethinkers.
____
I don't see where there is nothing that really relates Political viewpoints to free thinking

I will not apologize to you that my beliefs don't let me believe in the "gray" area. I believe that things are black and white or at least should be and I hope that I never grow out of that as you say I will (or at least in your many other rants about myself hope that I will).

What you consider to be free thinking I consider to be immature ignorance.

So if everything is back and white where the fukc does that leave other colors ?

The overall thinking on this board does tend to be a little narrow in scope most of the time.

Usually people that walk the walk don't have to talk about the journey.
