I have finally noticed something. There are many times when facts and theory (or ideology) clash. In other words, the facts reported on the ground (by some) go completely against one’s own theory about life (one’s ideology). In this case, humans must make one of two decisions:
- My ideology is wrong and the facts are correct.
- My ideology is correct and the facts are wrong.
Humans will tend to choose 2 over 1 in most cases.
Almost all humans will do just this. I think men may be less likely to do this, but women are notorious for this sort of behavior. Women have this idea of how life is supposed to work, and it’s pretty much a fairy tale. But they believe in it because it makes the world comfortable enough to live in without a whole lot of anxiety.
To discover that the world does not work that way at all and instead is the complete opposite of their fairy tale world is very upsetting and makes the world seem like a very scary place that frankly most women don’t even want to live in. They figure it’s not even worth it to live in such a shitty world, and if that’s the way the world is, they would just as soon kill themselves.
All and I mean all Identity Politics people engage in this exact thinking. That is because all Identity Politics people are ideologues.
Liberals are also notorious offenders because they don’t want to believe that ugly reality goes against their pretty liberal ideas about how life really is.
Liberals are always telling you that what you have seen right in front of your face all your life is actually not even true at all! Apparently your eyes have been lying to you! Instead, to discover the truth, we have to have a bunch of social science liberals conduct some dumb experiment. This experiment then somehow manages to prove that everything you have been seeing all your life as obvious truth is flat out wrong. Everything you know is wrong!
Women do this same thing. Women are always insisting to others that the others’ eyes have been lying to them about the obvious patterns they have observed over a lifetime. The truth instead is whatever fake dreamworld that woman has cooked up in her head to avoid the pain of life.
