    I organically desire it more than the approval of others.

  1. Personally, I highly doubt the interest in objectivism to be found on this site or the hearts of its occupants, and anyone who truly values objectivism would understand precisely why it is so difficult to accept that another being could care about objectivism at all. Our society overwhelmingly neglects to reward honesty and accuracy in favor of rewarding conformity and submission. Therefore, a truly invested interest in objectivism is, by definition, a failure to adapt to the environment. It takes a brazen and crystal clear deformity from the human species to truly and validly pursue objectivism. I most certainly qualify as such because I don't crave human approval or interaction enough to compromise on accuracy. Not sustainably, anyway. I'm known to lie and appease others when they prove that sincerity is wasted on them, but I wield that dishonesty entirely as a tool rather than a habit I infect my mind and body with. Lying makes my skin crawl, and that look in someone's eye that silently demands "Play along and pretend that either of us believe what's coming out of my mouth or I'm going to mistreat you" makes me nauseous. George Carlin once said "If you think there's a solution, you're part of the problem." He may not have been entirely accurate when he said that, but he was certainly onto something. Human progress is inherently a purely team effort, and it would seem to me that there is no existing team on behalf of that. So I'm not here to try and start some kind of movement or change the world. Rather, I'm looking to experience something for the first time: A conversation with someone who values accuracy more than the approval of others. Someone who would like to indulge in some mutual soul-searching and dig into each other's heads to lay the foundation for discourse that is perfectly unhindered by the human stake in playing pretend games. Someone who understands that the very language we use to "communicate" has been undermined and infected by the dishonest intrigues of the humans who wrote it, and how necessary it is to rebuild it from the ground up in order to truly talk to anyone else. Someone who understands just how artificial and abrasive such an effort would need to be in the beginning. Inside and outside of fiction, I've never met anyone else like that, and I'd like to.
