      I wasn't actually thinking of them, Ice man. Lol:)
  • Because they are egotistical dictators who won't be content until everybody else agrees with them. There used to be an old school of people like that on the old AB.

      Oh, really?
    • Bootsiebaby
      Yes, really.

  • I think that is pretty natural to do that. Is one way to get more people to play with. So when you say you don't want to be reformed maybe what that means is you don't want to play - at least play their way. I don't know - I can't help feel sympathetic to people who goodheartedly try to make this a better world. Long as they don't send me the bill. And goodness knows I can always use some improvement.

      I don't think it's natural to reform others, especially not when the one doing the reforming is a weirdo to begin with. It's not about playing my way or playing someone else's way, it's all about resisting change in order to keep the status quo as I am already used to it. In other words, reform is about that dreaded C-word, isn't it? Does that make sense to you, officegirl?

      The "C word" being "change"? Change happens regardless and sometimes we are comfortable with it and sometimes not. Although I was not comfortable in the society in which I was raised in the 1950s and 60s that became my point of reference and that was my home culture so to speak. So of course I tend to measure things very much in terms of it. And miss so much about it. But I know I can't go back and have to come to terms with the way things are now whether I decide to go along with them or not.

      Yes, the dreaded "C" word is "change" and I was born to resist it for the plain and simple reason that I was born to hold onto the status quo as tenaciously as humanly possible. Logically speaking, going along with change is not exactly the ideal way to keep the status quo as it was in the 1960s, is it?
