Why do ATS members just put their labels on everybody ?

I just don't know who invents the labels but I have figured out already that people and agents on ATS just live with their labels . Mostly they don't know how to invent a new label , but they like to use new invented labels.

IMHO : I have learned that there are so much variables in this universe and using labels is the easiest and most of the time , the most stupid. I think that we should stop using these.

Heh, it should stop.
But i don't think it will. Just a few days ago a thread with the title 'Sheeple' was in the near top flagged.

And such a nice little fit all term, sheeple, won't abandon the people who feel superior.
Or inferior.


I guess i just figured out how to get rid of it, we should all be equal.
Oh wait there's a word for that.

Damn i'm a communist.

Help.
Me.

They bother me because human being is a complicated being . When you put a label on anybody , you are putting him/her in set . May be there are sets within sets .

I think it is a sign of disrespect , when you put somebody in a set of human being and you don't care about more details about his/her idea.

Thanks for explaining further to me what you mean.....I understand and I agree with you. It shows a lack of respect and concern when people "label" others....I like to look at everyone as individuals....life is more interesting that way.

Guess it all depends on the person and the label applied (usually due to the persons regurgitated comments from their "party" in political discussions).

Hey, If it quacks like a duck, presents itself like a duck, even tells you it is a duck, I will call it a duck.

And with so very many variables it seems silly, almost, that we take our selves so seriously.
From the universal pool of possibilities we gather but a few, organize what we can and for future reference, but a label on it.

There are always details and more specifications.

In a party the results will be clear . You are fond of A or B. So you go and vote for it. But in a real life , it won't get you true results.

When you are follower of A , you are labeled A and it is fair.

But you can not call anybody A , until he tells it himself that he is an A.

Don't be offended, Americans very rarely understand sarcasm, even when it's pointed out.

Peace be with you. Someday.


May be it is easier that way , living partially ignorant. by the way thank you for reply.

It would be the height of irresponsibility if we didn't at least try to clean up our own mess and leave you with a functioning, stable government in a country where people can go to mosque and pray without fear of being blown to smithereens by a rival sect as they are on their knees in worship


You are saying it but I disagree.
I think that they should learn for themselves to solve their own problem . It is a matter of time and you will see that as long as American forces are in Iraq they won't find any settlement.

Let me define some thing important :

There are ignorant and common numb stupid people in every nation . The main difference between these people in Iraq and America , is that in America these people have already find a way to settle down by being entertained and manipulated by MSM , but in Iraq they are not being controlled and they have some religious potentials. So these potential fools are found by the specialists , they are brainwashed and paid. So they go bomb their own country men.

My option : they should be manipulated by their own government.

They aren't any leaders , they are easily manipulated , most of them like to be played like fools.

Some times there are exceptions in history.

I think that you would agree with me, if I say that women are attracted to buy things more than men.

they do so because most of them are not familiar with outside jobs. they don't know that there are limited resources outside in urban life



Those are just a few quotes from some of YOUR POSTS on other threads, where you blatantly label americans and women as ignorant and stupid and a few other labels. Perhaps you should practice what your preaching in this thread. The first few quotes are about americans and other people the last two were in threads about Females. Im not saying labeling is right or wrong, I'm just saying don't complain about things you do yourself.

I am glad you did it for me. But you wasted your time.

1st. What I am considering as a label is a word that you don't like to be put on you.

2nd. I have found it recently to use more details in English language. In my recent posts I have tried to use for example American government.

3rd.When I find out that something is wrong , even though I have done it myself , I am brave enough to claim that it is wrong.

PS : Don't blame me for my lingual experiences. It is not so easy for me to express every detail. thank you for replies.

Im not blaming you for your lingual issues, I understand.
Also, Labels such as blind and ignorant are labels we do not like!

I'm not trying to flame you, I agree some labels suck; the problem is, where do we draw the line? A lot of labels can be used as descriptive words which are sometimes necassary. Its a tricky subject.

I mean labels ,by the words that are being made these days and are being used by pop culture.

Generalizing is another bad habit that we should correct about ourselves.

A label is a polemical weapon. Everybody likes a weapon when its in their hands and the battle is going well. Everybody hates the same weapon when it's used against them. Same as labels. Everyone hates to be labled (although somehow people dont hesitate to attach hundreds and hundreds of labels to themselves with great eagernes...). Yet at the same time everyone knows how to label others when its to their advantage in an agrument. If you think you are not so sneaky and underhanded you are almost certainly lying to yourself and need to do some introspection. It's nothing to be afraid of, it's just another part of life. But no need to lie about it to yourself...or to anyone else, really...

I don't mind being labeled

I know the truth.
