Arguing isn't always bullying so it'd help if you clarify, you've not given us much to work with

I've dealt with them by: pushing the bullies into walls, publicly shaming their behavior, mocking their world view, telling their mother, verbally eviscerating them in front of their peers, and threatening them. Deterrents work great if you're able to communicate your capabilities to the bully, without getting yourself arrested in the process.

Labels get in the way of creativity! Not everything is what it seems. While I appreciate challenges, I'm not in the mood for an argument right now! And I have attained such an age whereby I no longer need to prove myself to people.

The head loonies are there just to keep the masses in line with the consensus reality (myths of civilization / Imperial Mode of Living).

Have you ever heard of the Rat Park Experiment?

My suggestion is transformational travel and then cultivate a sense of place with intentional community, get into forest gardening (multi-strata agroforestry) and natural building (see "The Hand Sculpted House").

Also this video clip sums it up nicely - "Culture is your operating system" -

Also worth a read -

Labels are use for everything, you seem to love your free market capitalism so I think the label fits you well. Prove me wrong?

Anarchists have historically been small-business people. And there are advantages to learning budgeting, organisation etc.

I did market research on small businesses. Finding that they mostly didn't last beyond two years!

The sarcasm is in response to fat-phobic bullshit you spouted after I was foolish enough to say something open and real. If you tell me you are ignorant as to what you said was fat-phobic, I can educate you. Or you can deal with the sarcasm from a fat person who has had enough fat phobic bullshit in her life and doesn't want to deal with it from a random stranger on the internet. I love raddle because I don't usually encounter fat-phobic bullshit and you kinda ruined my comfortable space so I'm pretty pissed off about it.

they promote freedom and justice and have a good understanding about the workings of human nature and the universe."

this is a weird abstract inside of another abstract. maturity is easy to define if you're describing a plant, or the physical process of going from child to adult. it's otherwise very hard to define as a mental process, especially when it may mean one thing in one culture, and something else in another. "freedom" and "justice" mean different things to different people all across philosophical, ideological, and cultural divides. justice definitely doesn't mean the same thing to the US courts as it does to me, if it means anything at all to me. and freedom definitely isn't the same thing to me as the US military might define it.

overall i think this is a really odd article that associates maturity with being some sort of individualist and being the type of "rational" person people on the political right try to be.

it also insinuates that maturity = good, and immaturity = bad, which is goofy as hell. why care?

i think these two points are opposed though

  • Recognizes that he has choices in everything he does, and does not give away his freedom, except under limited circumstances, when he has good reason for doing so
  • Recognizes the fundamental truth embedded in Benjamin Franklin's statement that those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

liberty and freedom are often synonymous. so i can have a good reason for giving up my freedom, except if i give up my "essential" (??) liberty for temporary safety i don't deserve it?? what?? why do i have to recognize a "fundamental truth" written by some long dead slave-owner anyway?

  • Does not get angry when others disagree with him

ah yes, the old put down of any sort of emotions. nice.

  • Is able to accept life as it comes without blaming himself or others when it doesn't go his way

right i'm gonna stop criticizing this article here and pull myself up by my bootstraps. and you all should too!! everything that happens to you is solely your fault!!!!

So, just gonna say waking up with an erection every morning is 100% normal and is a sign of a well-functioning heart. If you stop waking up with them, get your heart checked. :)

But I understand the embarrassment. I've been there. <3
