Just a rational thought on rationality
By Mike Smith

I can fully understand how two rational people can have two different opinions about a subject. I mean people have different upbringings, different religions and value systems, different levels of education; they have read different books, seen different places and experienced different things. So naturally they are going to have different opinions.
Now when two such rational, logical people meet, keep open minds and exchange their ideas and share their experiences with each other, surely the point will come where they will have the same shared mental model and agree on the logic and the rationality.
The prerequisite is the logical, analytical, and rational open mind and the willingness to see it from the other person’s perspective. So when all these factors come together, two rational people will disregard the illogical and irrational and what will remain will be the truth and therefore there can be no other alternative than a mutual agreement.
Based on the new knowledge, the irrefutable evidence and the proof the rational person MUST change his point of view. If he refuses, he is lying to himself and being irrational.
However, we know that with the leftists libtards, it does not work like that.
One of the first things you notice when dealing with a libtard is the “hands-over-the-ears-eyes-wide-shut-head-in-the-sand” phenomenon.
No matter how much evidence and proof you put in front of the libtard, he/she refuses like a stubborn donkey to see the light.
Take me at the age of 19 for instance. Based on my upbringing, my value system, my limited education and a fair dose of youthful naiveté…I was a liberal, but as I educated myself, travelled, spoke to people and made some discoveries and experiences, my points of view changed.
As I have mentioned before… I, at one stage, converted to Islam for an entire year, because in my youthful naiveté, I also believed the bullshit propaganda that Islam is a religion of peace.
However I completely indulged myself into Islam, studied everything I could find about it and went to the Mosque during Maghrib every single day where I listened to the Imam’s, the Maulanas, etc.
One of the first things I discovered was why Muslims are Muslims. It is because 99% of Muslims know next to nothing about their own religion. They never read the Quran, the Sunnah or Hadith, the Kitabs, etc…So therefore they are mostly ignorant and simply believe what they get told stands in there (which is mostly made up by the Imams).
Now I sat there on the carpets of various mosques all over the world and listened how these Imams NEVER told us about the beauty and peacefulness of Islam. All I heard day after day was what scum Christians are for eating pork and drinking wine and how evil Jews are.
This goes out into their daily lives where they will smile to Christians, but in their hearts there is total disgust for the filthy scummy Christians. Oh yeah and Christian women are all whores who love getting raped and should never be married.
Like I said I managed to hold out for a year when I realized that Islam was not for me. Once I discovered what the religion was all about from the inside and I have seen and lived the evidence, I as a rational, logical person had no other choice, but to reject it.
What I cannot understand is the following:
There is so much evidence out there. In Germany they dish out the Quran free on the street. All people have to do is read it.
The oppression of women in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, etc is quite common knowledge. The public beheadings and amputations by sword in these countries are common knowledge and can be seen on YouTube. The attacks of Muslims on Christians on Madrid trains in 2004, in Paris November 2015, the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January of the same year, the truck attacks in Nice and Berlin and the more than 1000 white Christian women, sexually attacked in Cologne on New Year’s Eve 2015/2016 are all REAL incidents. It is not “Fake News”.
However, despite all this evidence, you still have thousands of White Europeans, especially women, who welcome these people in...WHY?
Look at the television and see how white people demonstrate against President Trump and welcome these Islamists into the USA after he banned them for their own safety. They never demonstrate against the cruelty and inhumanity of Islam, yet their placards tell of how racist and inhumane Trump is.
Sorry...I cannot for the hell of me understand it. How can any rational, logical person, after seeing all this evidence, still want these people into their countries? Look at Europe and how white Europeans after everything that has happened in the past 15 years or so, still welcome these people in. The only conclusion one can come to is that these people are not rational, logical beings. They need to be locked up for their own safety and that of others.
You have the same thing in Germany for instance when it comes to the topic of the former GDR/DDR (Former Communist East Germany). You mention to them and point out their own experiences to them, yet there are still people who defend it. Seemingly intelligent people.
You say to them, “But look how you had to queue up for three hours to get strawberries and bananas, look how you had to wait ten/twelve years for a two-stroke shit Trabant car, how the government decided what you study where, how the state decided what music you could listen too and what dance you should dance to which tune (the Lipsi dance), how the jails were full of ideological enemies of the state, how thousands of people tried to flee East Germany, how the Stasi watched and listened to every single person’s most private and personal life…How can you still defend such a system?”
Then the answer comes, “Yes, but…It wasn’t all that bad. We had fun too. We had jobs, we had friends, we knew how to get bye...”
They had such a great time in the GDR that some of them want to rebuild the wall and border themselves off from the evil cold West.
And these are supposed to be rational and intelligent people? I don’t think so.
