Taoism.png
Taoism - The 'Tao' is an indescribable abstract. Since I enjoy a challenge, I'll try to describe it. Taoism is a philosophy of harmony and balance with nature and self. The word 'Tao' means path, road or way. It can be interpreted as method, principle or doctrine. The 'path' is the harmony and orderliness of the universe, it is this manifestation of 'Tao' that is the "natural order" or "heaven on earth". A person need not strive to achieve the Tao, one just yields to the natural forces and follows the path of nature and Taoism.

Memes-Arrogance - Memes about Arrogance (or Igno-Arrogance or Dunning-Kruger) are here.

Knowledge makes people humble -

Arrogance makes people ignorant.

Igno-Arrogance - I don't really think think that knowledge makes people humble, and arrogance makes people ignorant: that stuff comes from deeper down. But a little knowledge gives people a bravado that more knowledgable people often don't have (called the Dunning-Kruger effect). And arrogance makes people not question their righteousness. So there's a correlation, even if it's not causal.

Humble brag - why am I so humble? Because everyone else is so great, too.

Guns and Igno-arrogance -

Igno-arrogant is similar to Dunning-Kruger, with a different cause. Smart people confusing their expertise in one area, with expertise in everything else. Which is annoying as hell to those who do the research to know what we're talking about. Gun debates are often filled with the igno-arrogant -- people tugging at the heart-strings instead of brain-strings, proposing things that can't be effective because they don't even fully understand the technology or problems, but using political theater to rile up the gullible or themselves. And worst of all, many of these types are so self-assured that they're the hardest to teach because their egos and mouths are doing the thinking, before they even have their basic facts straight.

Dunning-Kruger -

In the field of psychology, this is the truism that those with the least knowledge often have the most self-assuredness and confidence about the topic: e.g. they have illusory superiority and mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is.

Terms

We can't communicate effectively if we don't agree on what words or terms mean. Cultural Marxists decided that since they uusally can't win through honesty, logic, history and facts, they could win by twisting/perverting meanings (especially in popular culture and colleges), to distort every discussion into a debate on pedantics, or use truthspeak as a litmus test for who is properly indoctrinated/compliant. This section isn't intended as a comprehensive dictionary, but just to stop that gaslighting, by defining what I (and often history/society means or should mean) when using a term. Not what the far left is trying to re-invent terms into.
