Dishonest disagreements


I'm not afraid of people with opinions that are contrary to mine. I don't mind hearing them out. I don't mind too much when they aggressively tell me I'm wrong.

I notice when they "go strawman" on me.
I notice when they are dishonest.
I notice their inconsistencies even if they don't.

I do find it amusing to watch a government-supremacist paint himself into a corner with inconsistencies and double-standards, and then slowly realize what he's done to himself. You can see it dawning on him in real time as he suddenly starts trying to change the subject, starts leaning heavily on projection, and tries to make it about you and perhaps even blocks you.

But, no matter how strongly someone disagrees, and no matter what arguments they try to make, "taxation" is still theft and there can never be such a thing as a "good cop".

Most of the time, they don't realize they paint themselves into a corner. Cognitive dissonance takes a lot of effort to address
