On the subject of #PitbullDropOff and cognitive dissonance in American life and politics.
#PitbullDropOff is real. I wasn't the first and I won't be the last.
The rage is palpable and incoherent.
I’m just a taxi service for unwanted dogs.
When you see that kind of overreaction, it is always an indicator of COGNITIVE DISSONANCE.
You can see the problem here, I hope.
A political formula is a belief which justifies the legitimacy of some aspect or part of a system of power.
Etc. etc. ad infinitum.
Because then they will associate the political avatar of the formula with themselves.
It's a "self-evident" truth, right?
And yet, it's bullshit.
We DEFEND it as a RATIONALIZATION to avoid cognitive dissonance rather than finding a better, TRUER idea.
This is good advice for happy life.
I try to live by it.
Once you understand that their primary function is to
rather than inform, all becomes clear.
A gigantic collective tantrum in the face of reality.
As that too now fails, expect more incoherent rage and anguish.
They have been bred to be resistant to pain.
They have also been bred to keep fighting long after most other dogs give up, chewing and shaking prey to death.
But when they do attack humans, which they do a fair bit, they have been bred to do so tenaciously and ferociously, ignoring submission signals which relax aggression.
These facts contradict a lot of beliefs held by pitbull lovers, who also associate these dogs with themselves, so they react very emotionally to them.
That is cognitive dissonance in action.
They are great fighting dogs.
They are also great large-game-hunting dogs. For boar hunting particularly.
But the fact remains that they are also EXTREMELY dangerous when they attack. And they need to be carefully controlled and trained to be safe.
Aggressive pitbulls are a threat to public safety.
And a lot of them are aggressive.
And this has happened a lot in recent decades. Only 20% of pitbull types dogs are fixed, compared to 70%+ among other breeds.
Breed standards are not being held.
What were they mixed with?
That’s right: pitbull terrier.
(Underplayed by the media, of course).
This is no exaggeration. Go look at my mentions if you doubt.
Dozens of them have called me "Literally Dog Hitler" over this, which is so funny I put it in my profile.
There is a mass report campaign and dozens of my tweets deleted.
The Dysfunction of American Politics reflected in pitbull activism on Twiiter!
It's not mysterious.
It targeted the contradictory lies of the pitbull advocates with direct action based on the truth.
And they went crazy.
Don't let them live by lies.
They will freak out and defeat themselves every time.
Stick to the real and the true.
And you will be invulnerable.
