it seems your sensitivity to the subject related to others in concerns with Fukushima and its effects on EA*RTH upset the individual who made the
statments to you, do to them having a lack of compassion for others. So if you possess compassion for others dont feel bad another talked of you
weird or made judgment on you due to them not caring as you do. I dont gather the connection made, but maybe its a hidden issue with the individual
who couldnt get the importance of how this world can or would be effected by the disaster in Japan.
This is overthinking it.
The other person simply thought the OP was being gullible when he brought up his fears about things. That's a very normal thing to do if you're older
than the person expressing their fears. If somebody hypes up their fears and those fears seem to be out of place then it's only natural to shrug them
off. This doesn't mean the person can't feel compassion or is angry inside. It's just an opinion they have. They're making a judgment.
But I get what you're saying somewhat. You're saying that this person doesn't understand what the OP is talking about BECAUSE they lack compassion and
the will to learn broad ranges of topics, therefore, they don't understand and are unable to hold a conversation with the OP. My point is that a
person can innocently think somebody else is stupid (and shrug them off) yet still be compassionate on many levels.
I mean, I've met many people who're passionate about global affairs and many people who're not. But they're both compassionate in their distinct ways.
The people who're avid about being global citizens tend to be more modern and net-connected and even liberal The people who're more concerned with
immediate reality (their surroundings, the people they know, the places they go) still have lots of compassion for things in that reality, but they
don't spend as much time worrying about what's happening halfway across the world.
Look... right and wrong are MOSTLY subjective when the topic is more complex than a simple obvious murder of an innocent. See, we all understand that
stealing from someone is wrong and illogical, but we don't agree on what the punishment should be and we don't completely agree either about the
things people possess that can potentially be stolen. Can someone steal my sense of pride or my sense of privacy or my soul or my faith or??? And this
is only the beginning. Right and wrong become fuzzier and fuzzier. Right and wrong tie into our political beliefs because our political beliefs
ultimately determine where money is spent, and most importantly, which problems get fixed! So if person A and person B do not agree about what's right
and what's wrong then when they go to the voting booth they will vote to fix different problems. Until we can ensure that ALL people feel the SAME
about what's right and wrong then we will never be able to cut away the politics from the issue.
I consider myself more liberal than conservative.
I took a political compass test that showed this:
My personality test(s) have shown something like this (this is 1 of 2 separate results):
Introverted (I) 67.86% Extroverted (E) 32.14%
Intuitive (N) 68.57% Sensing (S) 31.43%
Thinking (T) 53.13% Feeling (F) 46.88%
Perceiving (P) 54.55% Judging (J) 45.45%
My IQ is average.
There you have it: ME!
But I have a lot of respect for people of all political faith or leaning. I know that conservatives just fill a different part of reality. We all
worry about different things. We all have a role to play.
Just don't be cocky or too sure about your opinions. Don't force them on others.
