Rationalization is higher order ego defense used by 99% of people, they tend to rationalize EACH and EVERY action and feeling of themselves and not just self but each and every action or feeling of others..
Just as we can’t live without giving reason to each and everything or our life will be in trouble if we don’t have reason for something..
One of the famous poet just gave words to what I feel about this and I am so thankful to that person for this..
Knowing someone in a comprehensive way can be
A little frustrating
When I detect the waving red flag presence
How can I truly understand who they are
When their outside thoughts, their words, are
When their outside thoughts are
Sometimes, rationalization is simply
To salve an ego dinged by a pellet of error,
Colored up so a person knows it wasn’t
Probably, those instances aren’t important enough
But other times, rationalization is something much more
When a person is fabricating a chain of reasoning,
For something they believe but know deep down
Then, the only conclusion I can make is
One only needs to remember what slave owners did
Themselves from treating slaves like the people
They truly were.
The oligarchy of the South actually wrote books
Claiming that slaves were stupid and could not
And that they had to be treated like children —
And that, like children, they might have to be disciplined
So, slave owners gave themselves reasons to take away
Thus, today when I hear politicians saying people are
When I hear them saying that people don’t deserve
When I hear these propagandists discouraging people
And justifying all of this by saying people are nothing but
Then, I become suspicious about whether they are honest
