You Have No Right to Philosophize!

If things are good for you, then God* has pampered and spoiled you, and thus you have NO right to generalize for the rest of us.

If an afflicted person does not find comfort in the wisdom of happy-sacks like us, is it their fault, or the shortcoming of our “wisdom?”

But if your situation is horrible and not getting better, you can’t generalize your negativity onto the rest of us. The only thing we’ll listen to from the afflicted are heart-warming stories of how you overcame your affliction even as it killed you.

In other words, no one can philosophize anymore because a) no one has any source-credibility–oh what, you do??? and b) the philosophy of the happy-lucky-healthy and the philosophy of the sad-afflicted are both equally valid and maddeningly exclusive of each other.

And there’s no communication or translation between the two. It’s like different dimensions.

*Feel free to substitute “fate” or “luck” or whatever for “God” if it makes ya feel better

      • Thanks for the read–yeah, that’s covered in paragraph 3, second sentence: “The only thing we’ll listen to from the afflicted are heart-warming stories of how you overcame your affliction…” I only added the “even as it killed you” part as a sort of over-statement, or self-undercut, or something 🙂
