Don't be spouting your binary bullshit round here Mega. I can be non-binary if I want! :evil: I will not stand for it!

(I'll most likely sit down for it.)

"When the people around you aren’t real people, you can treat them however you want.

In Matthew 5:22, Jesus Christ pronounces harsh judgments against “anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca.’” Raca is an Aramaic insult that translates as “empty.” Some scholars interpret its meaning as something like “empty-head” or “dummy,” but in a recent sermon, the Anglican minister Ethan Magness suggested that raca could be a way of suggesting that the person is an “empty vessel” whose “humanity has been diminished to nothing.” In other words, an NPC.

The contrarians who share NPC memes would do well to consider the extent to which they themselves repeat ideas they’ve overheard. Blind, uncritical parroting is always annoying..."

What a great post..!

Indeed, reducing someone to an NPC eliminates all love and/or compassion for the person.

It really seems sometimes like the ‘divide and rule’ strategy is being executed lately on a master scale. People and issues being so polarized, no more middle ground on anything just 2 teams that are slowly hating and dehumanizing the opposing team. It’s getting really bad. I suspect social media may even be promoting this trend, lifting all the most polarizing posts to the top of everyone’s feed so as to caricaturize the other side as idiots and extremists to ridicule.

Really wise post man, I will ponder that for sure

I just heard about that one on my way out the door today, seems like overkill to me straight off. The media pins it on this burgeoning new 'far right' I'm guessing. Either that or maybe that freedom hating Assad. Or those diabolical Russkies again. It's going to be hard to avoid hearing about this nonsense, especially with those mid terms coming up shortly but I plan to try my level best.

Do you think this hurts the Republicans at the ballot box?

Where I live in Vancouver British Columbia Canada, 100% of the population is NPC so it's a bit of a different equation here than it is in the US I gather. Sage advice all the same though.
