Is this a non conformist site?…Good…..

3 years, 5 months ago

Well, I am a relatively complicated person, artistic, imaginative, diplomatic, attentive, empathetic, assertive, and a little arrogant..So I like myself, no harm no foul. Yes..Hello fellow people whom I really hope are along the same life/thought lines as myself..I am highly irritated at the govt..very exasperated w/ the general american population..I hate to term myself relative conspiracy theorist as much as the term ‘realist’. But there are different sides to every story, so who is to say my reality, as peachy keen as it may be during certain ….moments of delusional grandeur, is the right one? I was actually pushed to the point of seriously considering Expating myself to another country before martial law sets in…upon telling this to my dad…he replied ‘are you out of your fucking mind?’…so yeah…Hello to everyone, thank you for this delicious site of random thinkers I hope to fit in w/….uh oh…that would be conforming….shhhhhh…… ;}

Yes the goal of a non-conformist is to not conform, even with other non-conformists. However that can force you down a very specific path, that is not of your choosing, so as not to conform. This in itself is conforming.
Just follow your heart and common sense and believe what you feel is right. There is nothing wrong with having your own opinion, even if people say it is wrong or it is based on the opinions of others, as long as it suits you.

Hello and welcome. If you’re looking for cool ideas, this discussion site is just the right place.

Conforming is a choice. Conformist or nonconformist is not the nature of a site, it’s the nature of the individuals on it. It shouldn’t matter at all to one who won’t conform.

Hi, yes you are correct, the reason I say ‘non conformist’, is because I get extremely passionately frustrated w/ people who just immediately eat what they are fed either thru mainstream media, or various avenues where an overwhelming view is shoved thru a feeding tube, that is one sided..Especially when it comes to the peoples lives that are cut short because of officials playing board games w/ real countries..for ex..monopoly?…yes…stratego?…yes..battleship?…yes..and if you really dissect it…even ‘clue’….that is kinda how it appears to me anyway..

just be yourself and if that is like others than that is how it is. and if you are unique(a good chance) then that is also how it is.. conforming and non conforming is for people who base themselves off of other people. base yourself off yourself. and what will be, will be
