    Oh yikes. I feel like this won't end well. Remember that time I made a political blog post?

    At the same time, normal threads are infinitely easier to manage compared to blogs.
    Don't forget there is a report button for rule breaking messages, use it.

    Politics doesn't go well with anything.
    Especially online. Everything ends with a f*** you.

    I've seen friendships breaking up over a political party, so yeah, it's usually a sensible topic. Some people are likely to breakdown over a different opinion, and I feel sorry for them.

    I think we see our political views as extensions of ourselves, what we think of ourselves and how society should be governed. When someone challenges our views (political especially), we see it as a challenge on who we really are, as a person.

    Why?
    I do not care what happens in me surroundings.
    I do not care for politics, nor do I care for news.

    But are you a part of society? Do you function as an individual through the help of society? You need not care, but you are bound by the laws that society decides- and that happens through 'politics'.

    Getting news from only Temp is bad because there are lots of misinformation. You're limiting your options getting from one place.
    If you get news simply because its right in front of your face here on temp then thats a different story.
    You're avoiding news but its just there in front of you just browsing this site.

    Sometimes I have gone to the point of just shutting myself out from world news.
    It can be depressing. Frustrating because I can't get a straight answer. And so much misinformation thrown into the mix.
    Sometimes I just don't to deal with this. Combine that with arrogant people thinking they are special because they are informed, and know stuff the uninformed masses don't know.

    Dealing with their ego's can be a drain on me. Instead of helping people and educate them, they use argument and debate, to think they are better as an ego booster for themselves. You don't get this with teachers that think they are superior than their students, or calling their student idiots even though they know more, so why do the same in debate? Sometimes I avoid when i'm not in the mood, to give myself a break and recharge.

    Good for politics.
    Still don't care about it ;')

    What part of "I do not care about news" don't you understand?

    I feel sorry for you. And I don't mean it in the slightest insulting way, I genuinely feel sorry for your decision of isolating yourself from society.

    You might not like what happens around you, or you can see it a chore, but you should do your part as you're part of society. You should be informed about what happens and do something if you don't like it. You should be aware of the environment you're contributing with your taxes and just for being there.

    Additionally, breaking the law isn't justified by ignorance. If your country passes a stupid law and you break it, saying that you didn't know about it won't save you. Stuff like being overweight in Japan after you're 40, or flushing your toilet past 10pm in Switzerland, or even using the swings if you're over 12 years old in Italy. I know that stupid laws rarely get applied but it could still happen.

    That's just my opinion. I'm not saying you're a bad person or anything. In my personal opinion, what you're doing is dangerous and if more people do it, we'd all live worse lives.

    You do know that laws like that won't get enforced right?
    There's literally hundreds of dumb laws with similar context that never get enforced.

    Society is shit, can't care what happens.
    Life has only one purpose and that's to die.
    Question is when and how.
