I always try to stand up to adversity and injustice. In light of recent events, it seems I'm noticing a lot of mean-spirited, and demeaning speech from people in my life.

It is impossible to police every single thing anyone says, and to argue with everyone in every situation I disagree with would be crazy. (Although I've tried, so maybe I should check myself in.)

So, I noticed this post has popped up here several times since the inauguration, but how do I defend my belief system strongly, while not going crazy screaming at people who, when interacting with them, I might as well be talking to a wall.

Just don't bother. You can't reason with opinions entrenched in belief.

You can't argue with blind belief.


Which side are you from, anyway? left or right?

>i might as well be talking to a wall

which is why we dont talk to walls. we use walls for what they are good for, nothing more, nothing less. treat the people in your life the same way. if their thoughts and beliefs aren't unforgivable, then just let them keep them. if they bring it up, respectfully state your opinion, let them have their rebuttal and say 'i think we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

Left. My belief is I want goodness for people. I want to help the disabled, the poor, the underprivileged.

I don't understand how anyone can look at that and say that is a bad belief system.

Agree to disagree in situations where an argument is inappropriate.
If people try to start shit anyway, aggressively change the subject.

Because they think the poor are welfare fiends and the like.

Hell, I agree with you, although I'm not all that interested in the identity politics characterising the modern left (I like to call it classical left). I've just given up on arguing with people because one side tells me I'm a cuck, whore, commie, whatever and the other doesn't think I'm radical enough and calls me a fascist.
