Kill your fears, save your life

The only thing truly interesting in this world for us is other human beings. Yes, there are other things of a passing interest, but if the world was without other people, we'd quickly lose interest in everything else.

Everyone is going to die, including you, and some soon. We have limited time to get to know others, their thoughts, actions, art and souls.

The fears that hold us back from really getting to know others deeply, from risking to do so, are the worst enemies in the world. Our fears can rob us of other people as if they really didn't exist at all, so that we are truly alone even in a crowded world.

Let's kill our fears.

Awesome man,

some good reasons why we should talk to and meet strangers more often, instead of going to a social venue to then just talk with our limited social circle.

I thought you might like to know I debated Walter Block. Epic debate.

I watched it, and the analysis.

The analysis was excellent.

But how many people do we need to know?

I am content with a small circle. Each person is vastly interesting.

I resolve to work on my fear of nuns

Take your own advice then and

Take your own advice then and kill your fears of actually being free instead of the non-stop diatribe of tyranny-lite you post around here. Cut the umbilical cord to your beloved nanny-state.

There are plenty of active threads

where you can get a whipping like the happy slave you are. Never seen so many self proclaimed slaves not even try to escape. You and the guy below, so scared of gangs and tanks that you choose to be slaves when you are free to escape. Take it to an on topic thread.


hey wade3 knee deep into the human interaction adventure...

I have to agree...

So I will be looking forward to debates in which both sides do not "focus on their worst fears." Such as "gangs with tanks."

You might not be so bad after all :)

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
