Debate sucks and philosophy without action is mental masturbation, barely good for occasional pleasure and definitely not preferable to real human interaction. Take a day or two away from your heated debates that are solving world problems on DDO, facebook, twitter, reddit, google+ or any of the other myriad of social engines and go sit under a tree or next to an ant hill. Take a deep breath, then another, and another until you feel your brain release that negative energy it has harbored for so long. Avoid the pointless debates with individuals whose only real desire is to have everyone else agree with them. Disagree with me, disagree with others and more importantly stop following the crowd just because. Find your own way, become an individual, free the mind [http://jessetalksback.com...].

Free the mind and the body will follow~

I missed this during my hiatus. This belongs here. This feels like old DDO. I'm taking a screenshot for my archive. Good job, sir!

I could be better, but I could be worse as well.

Neither have I. I recently just came back like a few days ago.

I'm going to form a counter-argument, now that I'm properly drunk.

1.> "philosophy without action is mental masturbation"

Rebuttal: Philosophy does not need to terminate in action in order to be relevant. It only needs to result in action, if it's practical. For example, the philosophy of the Taoist includes the reasoning of "why", as opposed to the Western philosophy of "how".
"Why" requires no action. None at all. In fact, Lao Tzu stated: "Silence is a great source of strength." [1]

2.> "Take a day or two away from your heated debates that are solving world problems on DDO, facebook, twitter, reddit, google+ or any of the other myriad of social engines and go sit under a tree or next to an ant hill. Take a deep breath, then another, and another until you feel your brain release that negative energy it has harbored for so long. Avoid the pointless debates with individuals whose only real desire is to have everyone else agree with them."

Rebuttal: That is meditation, which is defined as a contemplative discourse, usually on a religious or philosophical subject. [2]

3.> "Disagree with me, disagree with others and more importantly stop following the crowd just because. Find your own way, become an individual, free the mind."

Rebuttal: In other words, debate.

Zing!

Anyway, how exactly does debating not require "disagreeing with others"?

Love that sketch. I did a humorous interpretation of it in high school.

Devil's Advocate means advocating a position that you disagree with-hence disagreeing with others.
