The Smartest Guy I Know
Ignore the title! It’s terribly messy due to my ridiculous intelligence! I’m so smart, I couldn’t decide between two highly inspired titles, and thus merged them into a
terribly messy witty one. How genius of me!
In recent years, western society has gone from being the best we can be, to changing the rules so we can be the best. Whether it comes to articles on the internet meant to make the below average person feel good about themselves without requiring change, or a person changing themselves so they can beat the odds without improving, people overall are only succeeding in making fools of themselves.
The Best People They Know
I recently read a study which stated that the smarter you are, the more likely you are to swear, or be messy, or be rude. The study suggested that that slobs and social degenerates are, as unlikely as it may seem, the smarter of us. Our superiors. This is a half assed attempt to make people feel better about themselves without requiring improvement. The problem is, this phenomenon does not simply leave itself within the mind of its reader as a warm feeling. These people develop a superiority complex, and decide that their circle of influence ought to be increased. You see them all over the place, usually fighting for things that are not reasonable, but would make them feel better. They want higher minimum wages. They want free schooling. They want free medicine. What’s more, they believe they deserve these things because these things are human rights.
Protip: they’re not human rights. They exist nowhere on the Bill of Rights.
These people believe they are the smarter of us, and thus they refuse to educate themselves even slightly on the matters they profess to feel most strongly about. I do believe this is a direct effect of articles created for these people to read to simply make them feel better about themselves. Have you ever lived or worked with, or simply been around a narcissist? They have a superiority complex, and believe themselves to be the authority at whatever is going on at the time. The current feel good movement is only serving to create more narcissists. This isn’t just annoying, it’s dangerous.
Antifa is a group that is caused by uneducated people feeling moral superiority over others. They are now known for violent protests across the United States. Had they not been bolstered and emboldened by saccharine scripture that told them they are highest on the pecking order, maybe half of them would’ve stayed home where they belong.
Aside from that, the people that support and participate in these movements could do with a few hundred hours at the gym, and a shower.
In Ourselves and Our Homes
It doesn’t just manifest itself in mobs attacking people on the streets, though. It’s in the way we interact with each other. Sarcasm is the rule of the day, and if you’re not chucking a pithy one-liner at someone, you’re slow on the uptake. Double that if you’re not swearing at someone. Now, I’m not gonna get all sanctimonious about swearing, as I engage in it, too. I, however, don’t believe it adds at all to me. I believe that it in fact detracts from me. Especially as a parent.
Have you ever gone to someone’s home and found it in such a state of disarray or even filth that you weren’t comfortable being there? They defend it by saying it’s an organized mess. They’d never be able to find anything if it were clean and neat. Through their own laziness, bad parenting from their parents, and likely a combination of both, they’ve created a habit that they don’t have the mental fortitude to break. Smart people don’t live in squalor. It extends to a person’s car and personal appearance as well.
Be The Change You Want To See
Fallon Fox, a one time male trucker, made headlines during his three year stint in the world of MMA fighting. See, he didn’t fight in the men’s division. He instead changed his gender and fought against women. He left his (female)opponents with permanent injuries while guilelessly and unskillfully manhandling them in the ring. An opponent, Tamikka Brents is quoted as saying, “I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not because I’m not a doctor. I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right,” she stated. “Her grip was different, I could usually move around in the clinch against other females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch…”
Men who are bad at sports shouldn’t be able to use gender reassignment to get around the fact that they are bad at sports. Should I go get a vag sewn on and bring my somewhat-chubby ass to dominate some women in basketball? I’m pretty bad at it.
Insert Genius Segue Here.
If you find yourself reading the aforementioned articles and feeling better about yourself, rather than disgusted by the examples they portray, please look around you and see if you shouldn’t clean up, rather than read another article.
If, however, you do keep a clean home, and feel that politeness and civility are important, maybe another type of article is in order for you. Now, get outta here(seriously, click that link, and you’re outta here).
