It's funny how, as soon as someone tells Janis that it's crap (i.e. everyone who's bothered to read and comment on it), she responds with "You don't understand it!"
But they don't NoDeity. That is a fact.
It's funny that this "knowledge" is supposed to spread throughout the world and change it dramatically for the better but nobody in this collection of fairly smart people can understand it.
So? Who understood anyone when they bucked the system. You're no different although I have to give you credit...you are definitely trying.
If this "knowledge" is so damned hard to understand, how is it supposed to catch on sufficiently to save humanity from itself?
Let is start with you. You haven't even come close to understanding it because you are still so skeptical that you won't let your guard down. If you, who are the gatekeepers of knowledge, can't even give me the benefit of the doubt, can you imagine the religious fanatics, the politicians, the lawyers, or anyone involved in the justice system? This may take much longer than I ever thought. I must accept that; but it doens't make this knowledge inaccurate.
Of course, the reason we don't understand it is that we're closed-minded and conditioned to reject fresh and original thinking. We're bigots.
No, you are just misguided. Can't you accept that possibility? I know you are trying which is the reason why I am staying here as long as I am.
It couldn't possibly be because Lessans' ideas are incoherent or that Janis hasn't presented them clearly.
Maybe I haven't expressed this knowledge clearly; but don't you see, I get no legitimate questions. You have an agenda and you don't realize it. As open minded as you want to be, you still have an agenda. I forgive you.
The reason we call it horseshit could never be that it is horseshit. After all, Janis grew up with this knowledge; the beliefs she's held since childhood could not be wrong. Instead, there must be something wrong with all of us.
Huh, I knew it was coming. I knew someone would bring up the fact that I grew up with this knowledge so the conclusion is that I must be wrong; that I was brainwashed in some way. No, I wasn't. And there is nothing wrong with me and there is nothing wrong with you all. There is a lack of clear thinking where this book is concerned. I am not blaming you for this.
Damned closed-minded willful-ignoramuses!
That was below the belt, NoDeity.
