I Have Decided to Join Your GroupSubmitted by Ed Ucation on Sat, 08/30/2014 - 19:25
For a long time now, we have been at odds. I have challenged your beliefs and values by pointing out that I have different beliefs and values. I have also threatened your ego by challenging your beliefs and nudging you into the dark corners of self-doubt. For how could we both be right?
Well, I have some great news. I have decided to join your Group. I will profess to have adopted your beliefs and values as my own. It should be clear that this is great news for you. First of all, your walls of certainty, erected around your fortress of How Things Are, with its inner sanctum that holds The Answers, will no longer be assaulted with Questions. This should be enough to make you smile. But, there is more!
I am now One of You. The Group has grown bigger. The Truth has become stronger. You can now be a little bit more sure that you are Right. There is strength in Numbers. For, if I agree with you, you must be right. You can add another brick to the wall around your Ego. And isn't that what is most important? That the Ego be safe? Well, I can help you with that. I have decided to join your Group. Won't you give me a warm welcome? It's a win-win. A mutual voluntary exchange of ego-boosting. What could be better?
