Cynicism Is Not Smart, Sophisticated or Detached … It’s a Cop-Out

We have overwhelming numbers (and see this). If we worked together we would win.

Why aren’t we?

A large reason that we are failing is that people are copping out … by adopting a cynical attitude.

Many of us pretend that we are too smart to think anything can change. Too smart to get emotionally involved in the destruction of our prosperity or our liberties.

“Cynicism is nothing but intellectual cowardice”.
- Henry Rollins

“Cynicism is not realistic and tough. It’s unrealistic and kind of cowardly because it means you don’t have to try.”
- Peggy Noonan

Idealism is outdated, like principles, individualism,

independence, personal responsibility in this sad phase of history.
