    Have any of you ever heard of stoicism? it's a very interesting philosophy I recommend reading about it, I'm taking some of it into my everyday life.

    Stoicism has its place. It can guide us to sound judgement / sound decision making, especially in emotionally charged situations.

    Stoicism can be an important part of success in both personal, and professional, situations.

    if you're going to post idiotic threads, i'm going to comment to point out their idiocy-- on every single one of them. it's the only way you'll people ever learn because clearly the most basic components of reason escape your schema. one of the problems with society today is that so many have gone through life being told your opinions are somehow valid; in actuality, your cognitive skills are just a rung above a goldfish with an aneurism. i pine for the days when you people were just thrown into lion dens for entertainment... le sigh.

    Well, being stoic when you need to is a strength and a good idea but I don't think you need to devote your life to the philosophy.

    The only idiot here is you--- for actually thinking it's "the only way you'll people ever learn" (which, btw is gramatically incorrect, which makes you sound like a fucking moron)

    The fact that you think you're going to teach people...or society rather (as u put it lol, fuckface) on an internet forum a lesson just proves to all of us that you are the idiot....Not only that, but you're an asshole too. Not a good combo, bro. Go fuck yourself. icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't understand how this was "prickish."

    Western civilization, particularly in urban areas, tends to be passive aggressive, and very I,I,I,me,me.,me. Perhaps not stoic, per se but indifferent to The Global Village, or even the local village (e.g., health care).

    I rather think it was an astute observation.

    I'd like to take this moment to advise those who are arguing in this thread to stow it.

    Does that make me a stoic?

    He's like that in general. That was Import's point.


    yeah, my observations are astute in general and simultaneously belittling to you. what's your point?

    one thing i will say about this is it can bring problems to a relationship because many people aren't used to hanging around someone who's stoic

    Stoicism was meant to be the taking the step back in order to be dispassionate enough to take into account other sides of an issue in order to make a more sound judgment.
