You seek community at the expense of the individual
You seek multiculturalism at the expense of culture
You seek knowledge at the expense of understanding
You seek equality at the expense of prosperity
You seek conformity at the expense of humanity
You seek safety at the expense of liberty
You seek utopia at the expense of reality

You claim to support peace yet warmonger relentlessly
You claim to support the poor yet use them as pawns
You claim to support civility yet riot when you lose
You claim to support tolerance yet censor your opponents
You claim to support privacy yet you build a back door
You claim to support openmindedness yet use safe spaces
You claim to support truth yet attack those who leak it

I liked this, Chaotic. Quite succinct and to the point. Well done.

Thank you. I was going to write a thread but it probably would have ended up being an extended rant and in my experience not many people read long threads.

I am coming to understand this, yes. There are places where discourse is available, however. I am one who believes that - in general - that which is worth having does not come without work. So I might slog through a long thread if it is something I am interested in.

2nd Prose:

You seek contentedness at the expense of awareness
You seek friends at the expense of real interaction
You seek consensus at the expense of critical thought
You seek compliance at the expense of discovery
You seek acceptance at the expense of your true self
You seek affordability at the expense of quality
You seek uniformity at the expense of variation

You claim to support bravery yet are ruled by fear
You claim to support logic yet always succumb to emotions
You claim to support sovereignty yet manipulate economies
You claim to support justice yet give aid to terrorists
You claim to support humility yet radiate smugness
You claim to support the little guy yet create monopolies
You claim to support maturity yet behave like an infant
