Okay so I understand why people hate on people who change ideologies a lot, and I sort of get it. If you go from a bottom left to top right that's weird. But, that's not most people. Most people who tend to 'change' ideologies stay relatively within their respective quadrant (thinking of political compass here, ik it's not the best but it's close). Honestly I think most changes in ideology are due to implementation and not actual change in values. For example, I used to be Libertarian Right. Even back then I was extremely anti-drug, but, I figured legalize all of it anyway and just let people waste their lives away. Now, I'm still anti-drug, but I feel like the State should do it's best to combat the spread of drugs and stop it that way. (Very simplified but I think y'all will get my point). Most people aren't actually suddenly changing from one set of ideas to the next. They either progressively go to their opposites, or they find a new ideology they think they better connect with. And isn't that the whole point of politigram? To debate views, strengthen your own/ figure out your own? Sometimes people on here are so toxic and can't be civil. Like you can talk nicely with someone of an opposite ideology, it's really not that hard. But so many times people get a righteous stick up their ass and are rude as fuck. Just let people figure out what they are, who tf cares if they change a lot. Honestly, at least it means they're thinking. Not to say sticking with an ideology is bad, ofc not. But I think we all know people who have stayed 'conservative' or 'liberal' basically their whole lives and blindly accept anything they hear from their side as fact. I think those people are the worst in this community. (Besides crypto-pedophiles and nasty shit like that, those are the worst, but out of you know, normal people.) .
If you can't pay attention to the topic at hand being discussed and give an intellectual critique or response, why even bother engaging with me? I will never take you seriously if emotional knee jerk responses rule your psyche.
Inner peace.. ✔
Detach yourself from materalism, the ideologies and expectations from school, social expectations from family and friends and become the person you truly are.
Be real with yourself and learn to let go of the things holding you back, this could be toxic relationships, bad habits/addictions and the food you consume
Everything online seems picture perfect; and when we compare our lives to an inauthentic idea, we lose the realistic standards of ourselves (which should not be influenced by the distorted illusion in which social media presents).
Reprogram your mind to see the good in every situation. Look at what really matters; (your happiness, health and wellbeing) dont sabotage your self image by comparing your life to a misconception of a perfect life/lifestyle which you see online.
Make peace with factors which you cannot control; If you can control it then do something about it and make a change for yourself.
(taken from a joint political party account @nationalfolkism) Can you spot the #difference ? #Google seems to think #ANTIFA is a kind group of peaceful protesters who don't #assault innocents, #destroy public and private property, and commit actions worse than those used in the #ideologies they claim to be against! Now look at the second photo, the #Charlottesville Protest; Google tries to display these men in an #evil , horrid light. Now we do not condone all the groups at Charlottesville, but none of the #violence would have occurred if not for ANTIFA #degenerates . So you might ask, is even the #website that effects our daily lives the most #biased ?

WORLD'S MOST BARBARIC DICTATORS PT 2: POL POT
(Pol pot pt2- schemes)
Once in power, Pol Pot began a radical experiment to create an agrarian utopia inspired in part by Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution which he had witnessed first-hand during a visit to Communist China.
Mao's "Great Leap Forward" economic program included forced evacuations of Chinese cities and the purging of "class enemies." Pol Pot would now attempt his own "Super Great Leap Forward" in Cambodia, which he renamed the Democratic Republic of Kampuchea. He began by declaring, "This is Year Zero," and that society was about to be "purified." Capitalism, Western culture, city life, religion, and all foreign influences were to be extinguished in favor of an extreme form of peasant Communism.
All foreigners were thus expelled, embassies closed, and any foreign economic or medical assistance was refused. The use of foreign languages was banned. Newspapers and television stations were shut down, radios and bicycles confiscated, and mail and telephone usage curtailed. Money was forbidden. All businesses were shuttered, religion banned, education halted, health care eliminated, and parental authority revoked. Thus Cambodia was sealed off from the outside world. All of Cambodia's cities were then forcibly evacuated. At Phnom Penh, two million inhabitants were evacuated on foot into the countryside at gunpoint. As many as 20,000 died along the way. Millions of Cambodians accustomed to city life were now forced into slave labor in Pol Pot's "killing fields" where they soon began dying from overwork, malnutrition and disease, on a diet of one tin of rice (180 grams) per person every two days. Workdays in the fields began around 4 a.m. and lasted until 10 p.m., with only two rest periods allowed during the 18 hour day, all under the armed supervision of young Khmer Rouge soldiers eager to kill anyone for the slightest infraction. Starving people were forbidden to eat the fruits and rice they were harvesting. After the rice crop was harvested, Khmer Rouge trucks would arrive and confiscate the entire crop. #war#northkorea#western
#Everyone deserves to be #loved .
That is why we so #desire it so much above all needs.
So many #ideologies promises us true freedom, true happiness but #never talks about Truth and Love.
Almost in all of these ideologies truth and love are #subjective not objective. Their version of truth and love are #based on their #opinion and #feelings and thoughts.
But without Truth there cannot be freedom and without freedom there cannot be love and without love there cannot be any joy or happiness.
You don't have to change nor do you to follow a particular trend or ideology to love and be loved, you just have to #you .
And you have to #trust in the #one who gave it all.
He will show you how.
Jesus did not came to condemn or finish off all ideologies, He came to #fulfill them or fulfill the #purpose behind them, i.e. to give mankind #freedom#truth and the choice to #love and be loved truly.
Let us pray to that end. Amen.
Our perception can be the thing we need to change. The old ways we have to let go. We are, to an extent, built by our surroundings as a young child and we have to let those ideologies be reaccessed to whether we are being true to ourself. Often the voice of the past is the voice in the present but has no place in the future. Let it go, be free. Be wonderful. Be true to you ⚡️💫🙏🏼 #perception#consciousness#conscious#love#thepast#thefuture#thepresent#ideologies
Be someone who seeks out clarification on the information that they are given. Just because it's in a textbook, because it comes from someone that you trust someone who may seem more worldly, don't rely on it a hundred percent.
Seek out the information, get proof If you will or at least as concrete an answer as you possibly can. Don't just blindly rely on the fact that someone told you something that it's the absolute truth. I'm not saying don't trust people or don't believe them when they say something however go ahead and do your research.
Don't be offended when someone you told something goes ahead and researches in and gets clarification on something you told them. That just means we're thinking people who want to make sure we have the most accurate information available to us.
Don't be like sheep herded into a pen or Lemmings that go off the cliff for no apparent reason.
We are all inquisitive creatures, follow your inquisitive nature, be a seeker of knowledge.

#People often would rather #mock#ridicule or #silence - you for sharing your thoughts and beliefs about the world then they would inquire more about them- or try to refute your #logic with their own. #Resistance becomes especially strong if your knowledge is in conflict or appears in any way superior than their own. Usually, its ego and the shock of #cognitivedissonance that causes such visceral reactions and takes effect to help some suppress the possibility that their very expensive college education/degree didn't provide the actual service which they thought they had paid for... and often still are paying for. I don't know everything, to assume so would be astoundingly arrogant... However, the things about the world I know to be true I have discovered through years of independent study, long nights of #researching , #world#travel , #questioning , #debate , #reflection and #prayer . The kind of efforts which once used to be revered in #America , I thought... but aren't much available or welcomed in the average lecture hall these days. If they are, they're apparently framed within some oppresser/oppressed hierarchical structure of victimhood #ideologies and #patriarchal injustices....(Get over yourself)
Though I'm always open and interested to new ways of thinking and facts that might help expand my own awareness of things, it seems that such a way of approaching education is not how many have been told is proper or valid...
I do #respect and acknowledge higher education as #important . Mostly for #surgeons , #astronauts and #lawyers . Anything and everything else can be learned, nearly #free of charge, if you WANT to learn it bad enough... and I think it's a #shame what has become of alot our institutions of higher learning. Looks #like America needs to consider that we may need to make education great again... or
