Hey you guys, this is my first appearance here but I've been following the forum ever since I read TMF , a year and a half ago.
What brings me here is chapter 26 of Unscripted , the parts that talks about antithetical apathy. I was very moved by the entire argument, paying lot of attention and at the end I laughed at it. The laughing part actually annoyed me a bit when I thought about it because that is sort of my defense to not facing reality; so, instead of being "offended", I crack a laugh and don't bother thinking about it anymore.
Anyway, I was wondering if you guys have any examples of antithetical apathies in your own lives and how you found out. It has been buzzing my thoughts for a while so I'd love to hear some shared experiences in order to think about mine :) thankss

I did, put in "spoiler" box because it is something not everyone will want to read ... sparing them from their own antithetical apathy.

Saying, "I love animals!" while eating a cheeseburger.
Saying, "The Chinese shouldn't torture and kill dogs during the Yulin Dog Festival "-- but then you have no problem eating any other slaughtered animal, because your culture and earthly geography says "THATS OK!" (all while paying someone else to do the slaughtering behind closed doors).

Writing the antithetical apathy subchapter is one of the primary reasons why I went vegan years ago.

I faced my internal incongruence and reconciled the dissonance. Because of it, I now feel more spiritually connected and years later, I've come to realize I made the right decision... heart, soul, and even healthwise.

You just discovered that recently? It's been like that for years. Mention anything of a conservative, right-leaning perspective and Reddit will ban or censor you -- its an ideological echo chamber run like the Communist party which is not surprising, since it is owned in part by the Chinese.

While I understand Fastlane can equally be labeled an "echo chamber", my forum is a narrow niche focused on a narrow topic with a singularly defined purpose -- Reddit is supposed to be "the front page of the Internet" -- now it is the front page of what WE want you to think.

No, this isn’t the first time I discovered it but the purpose of that experiment is this: I want to confirm what the others are saying about the same issue.
and here's another thing, I used Reddit 5 months ago

Recently, a Small Investor made a video about exposing an MLM here in the Philippines where the people involved in that Network Marketing Company were severely offended that they wanted to silence her.
