My frame weakspot

November 26, 2019

I like to think I have very good frame. Even when I'm furious inside I am definitely skilled at holding frame and thinking clearly.

However, I have one shitty weak spot. One area where I just can't seem to resist getting pulled in and heated.


Whenever there's a political discussion I start out cool headed but quickly become emotionally invested and aggravated by people with opposing views I consider dumb and uninformed.

What is it about this one area that makes me such a child? I don't scream and shout, but I definitely lose my cool and start resenting and disliking people who oppose my views and opinions. People who I usually consider good friends of mine quickly become my enemies and I carry the aggression for at least a couple of hours afterwards. I find it very hard to shrug it off. I admire people who don't get involved in politics because let's face it, an alpha guy isn't someone who concerns himself with the political news cycle.

I have tried asking myself why I am so weak in this area but I can't quite figure it out. I always tell myself to just not talk politics any more, but I cannot resist getting pulled in whenever it comes up because these discussions always seem civil and calm at first but so quickly escalate without warning. Any other topics I am highly tolerant of other people's opinions but when it comes to politics I just have zero tolerance.

Some background: my family is quite politically charged. They all do this same thing so I was around very divisive and aggressive political stances growing up. I also listen to people on YouTube every day talking about current events and politics. It's like a hobby of mine. I probably see politics like most people see sports.

So. easy fix. Stop talking politics.

This comes from watching TV, including if you watch mainstream TV snippets online.

TV programs are designed as outrage porn, and encourage, cultivate what you're describing constantly, on purpose.

If you lose frame and become a petulant child when it comes to poltiics, then that isn't your accomplishment, it just means the TV is doing its job and properly massaging your brain such that you get off on that inner outrage.

The sooner you dump all of that from your life as dead ballast, the better.

Sounds like you suck at politics young nerd.

If you really wanna fix your frame weakspot, you will become the best politics expert debater you can.

It's hard to fix retard.

Most the time talking about politics people just say stuff out their ass and shit most people aren't informed and pretend they are.

I just wouldn't discuss anything with anybody who can't actually change anything.

Like either keep it to yourself or start getting into politics or talking to politicians

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
