In reply to people who accuse me of arrogance
There are people who blame me for being arrogant. That I would claim infallibility.
They may "argue" just by quoting me, noticing how confident I am of some of
my positions, as if the mere fact of claiming to know something well, logically
had to be, in itself, a mistake, or even a sin or a crime, of arrogance, either in itself or
against others. They hate it, they hate me for this, and they even find it right and
fair that I would suffer loneliness in case my loneliness were due to the fact
everybody would hate me for this in the same way - assuming that they would be anyway
right to do so, or just anyway they are right in a Machiavellian sense of being
powerful by their number and there is no possible other sense to give in the universe
to the concept of "being right".
And they "kindly" advise
me to just change myself by denying the truth of what I know, doubting
myself and starting to believe the shit
that people tell me, as I should need to belive their shit just at least as the
necessary means to get these bullshit tellers as my friends.
They understand nothing. Such infinite, tyrannical nonsense of theirs revolts me.
My real position has nothing to do with any assumption of infallibility that would come
just because I would like to believe myself infallible. This ridiculous view which
others want to believe about me is extremely far from true.
I do not assume such a thing.
What I do is that I do NOT assume to know, and I do NOT tolerate to invest myself
assuming something that may be a mistake, so I spend a EXTREMELY HUGE work checking
things over and over again as long as possible uncertainties remain.
But eventually such work, much harder than people imagine possible (as they would not bother themselves, or would not have the skills to effectively carry it successfully), bears fruit.
Once accomplished, logical possibilities of errors turn out to
I cannot pretend that possibilities of error on something still exist after I invested
myself so much on searching for them and eleminating
risks one by one and finally found and checked so well that the view
becomes correct. And whether or not a genuine reason actually exists to doubt
something, it still does not mean I should more precisely doubt my views
under the request of (by going take seriously) the "warnings" that I "may be
mistaken" on a given topic from the part of someone talking or writing to me
when his work is visibly is so much weaker on that particular topic (should I
insist, to put things in their correct context), which most often is the topic
of how things are going in my own life.
Actually the fact of focusing on
the topic of how things go in my own life should logically make it
much more likely for my own understanding about it to be indeed
better verified than that of people who only spent little time to inform
themselves about me, with no need of mentioning any real or imaginary fundamental
difference of intelligence between us. However, visibly,
people usually cannot grasp this particular reason, I wonder why.
So it has nothing to do with a claim on infallibility.
And a problem is, clearly I found others not having such a care.
Others are the ones who mistakenly claim infallibility, not that they
really claim it, they actually claim themselves fallible. The
fundamental difference is that, not only their thought is much more
full of mistakes than just "fallible", they still cannot stop spamming
others with their ideas which are, in their terms "fallible" (but in
reality pure shit) as if it was right to tell bullshit, they cannot
bear the burden of checking and correcting their ideas and they
cannot tolerate the shame of considering the possibility for others
to have been more careful or finally more successful than themselves
in efforts of verification.
But I guess I am wasting my time to explain this as these people cannot
understand anything anyway.
