Contrarian Busybodies

They exist in their own world where everything that anyone else does is wrong no matter what and they are here to fix things.  If they believed in God, they’d believe that God put them on Earth to fix what is wrong with the world.

They go by different names as the time goes by.  This is usually because the names they use become derogatory, despite being positive and uplifting.  Ever wonder why the term “progressive” in the US is now a negative term?  Or liberal?  Hell, even Social Justice Warrior is becoming derogatory.

The main principle behind the contrarian busybodies is that they must defy everything that is mainstream or viewed as widely accepted.  Take any topic and they will bash the overlords in charge of it for some reason or another.

For example, the US now has a black President (he’s half-white, but that half doesn’t count).  Given that the majority of the US is white (like 70% or more last I checked), you would think that this would be an end to the charge of racism against whites.  But that hasn’t stopped.  Instead we see racial divisions ramped up.  These black teens running rampant, robbing stores and beating random people (usually white), is indicative of a racially disenfranchised group.

Video games have come under attack lately.  Certain groups of people with a huge chip on their shoulder have complained about the portrayal of women in video games.  Now, video games have been largely a boy’s or man’s hobby.  Most of the games that women play are the simple puzzle games like Tetris or Bejeweled.  And while men play them too, they tend to go for more interactive and immersive games.

So naturally women aren’t always portrayed as strong, independent females as dictated by the ancient tenants of the Goddess.  Never mind that there are depictions of strong female warriors dating back to Metroid for Nintendo (or possibly even further).  That doesn’t matter.

The point is that contrarian busybodies will never be happy or satisfied.  This is because their entire life is consumed by pride and envy, which cripples their thinking patterns and causes them to not process reality in the same way that most people do.  This wouldn’t be a huge problem except that they also tend to get into positions of power with the drive to implement their delusional policies and force everyone to follow suit.

There is no compromise with them.  Do not make any attempt to appease them.  They view it as a weakness, not as a kindness.  They view every action you take through the lens of their own narrow vision.  They are incapable of recognizing acts of kindness from people who do not agree with them 100%.  They view it as an attack because that is exactly how they would behave if the roles were reversed.

So have nothing to do with them.  If you are an employer, fire anyone who acts up demanding equal pay or more minorities in the office.  If you are a business person, consider dropping clients who work toward such things.  And if there is one in your family, don’t let them watch your children or spend the night in your house.

You will find that life is so much better without these miserable miscreants.  And a lot quieter too.
