You know what I didn't like about this novel? They made Lot's wife out to be a good character, unjustly punished.
This is the reason for sjws (oh, don't forget your brethren) and suggests that compassion is so beautiful--and now lefties are ascribing that attribute to Jesus and think that acting with this attitude is the highest virtue when it 1. is fucking annoying and 2. holds them back from personal advancement.
If we followed his ideology, we'd all be throwing shit at each other.
You have a coherent argument against sjws, but you do not have a coherent argument against lot's wife. How the hell is turning around in what was most likely meant to be seen as an attempt to help sodom and gomorrah "annoying?" Are you saying that compassion is objectively bad? Because I'd have to disagree there.
Tbh you sound like you're very angry at the type of people who enjoy vonnegut and are unable to put that aside and actually read his work.
>attempt to help
The point Kuty was trying to make was that it was so inherently "human" to focus on who perish. The parable is she turns into salt if that remains her focus.
I'm sorry that I yelled at Vonnegut. I will visit his grave, or send flowers.
yes, yes, but it sheds light on why it was banned.
>suggests that compassion is so beautiful - and now lefties are ascribing that attribute to Jesus
That's the Jesus who taught about the Good Samaritan, yeah? The one who spent most of his time being kind to lepers and blind people? Yeah, the whole compassion thing is totally made up by 'lefties'.
I never thought that sjws were bad for having compassion. To be honest I thought their worst quality was self righteousness. Every time they try to explain concepts like oppression and privilege to me I find myself arguing with them even if I agree to some extent just because their approach is just so goddamn condescending.
Self-righteousness is ugly to behold. However, it is a rampant quality of human attitudes and there is no escaping it.
But, we must have compassion for the hypocrite, for there is a little hypocrite in all of us.
