The Disease of Cognitive Dissonance:

The Disease of Cognitive Dissonance:                                           cognitive dissonance meme

Someone would ask me a question, and when I began to answer they would interrupt and engage in a highly emotional monologue full of venom, vitriol and labels with the sole purpose of confirming a self-created, yet false, security that he is the master of all truth and knowledge. Everything that challenges that security is violently rejected, it must be, his whole sense of worth is dependent upon his false foundation.

This is the effect of Cognitive Dissonance and completely irrational confirmation bias. You can know this to be true because this person was physically and psychologically incapable of listening to anything that was not in direct line with what they were taught to believe. It is really very sad. Sad because this person and people like them are not only locked into error as the foundation of their being but also teaching the youth of America the same lies they were taught.

Their conduct with me is a clear indication of how they clearly believe that they’re the master of all information and truth and anyone who challenges that will be taken down at all costs … to include name-calling and derogatory comments.

I run into these people occasionally. You learn quickly who they are and also learn to spend as little time as possible with them. I am not interested in wasting my time with people who have no interest in edification.

I discern who they are and then walk away. They will always find someone else to attack to feel powerful. Why do I walk away? Because I agree with Thomas Paine:

“To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead…”
