• Not all, but there are many.

    I find it humorous when people jump on the bandwagon, proclaiming their intelligence and calling others idiots for not sharing their views, yet when they are proven wrong you don't hear a word from them. Not an admission that they were mistaken or that they are in fact the idiots. Some even delete there previous comments which expose their stupidity. I would rather thank the person for correcting my misconception. But that is because I do not assume I have all the answers. Hypocrits are the lowest life form when it comes to philosophy.

  • Hypocrisy is inescapable in the human experience.

    Our hypocrisy stems from our naivety and ignorance which are natural parts of our experience. We as humans tend to hold biases towards certain points of view that conflict with our own and it is something that requires great effort on the part of an individual to minimize ones hypocrisy.

  • Yes, humans are hypocritical.

    It is known that everyone is hypocritical. Everyone tries to stay away from hypocrisy in their lives. At some point in our lives we are all hypocritical whether we mean to be or not. Some people, more than others, tend to be hypocritical with the knowledge that they are being just that. What I have noticed is that some people who are hypocritical tend to notice that they are being hypocrites while others refuse to believe that they are being exactly what they are denying that they are.

  • Society faces the threat of hypocrisy blurring it.

    Look around you. Hypocrisy is almost always threaten to blur the fabric of our precious society. This is how empires eventually collapsed. People need to be managed, if they want to judge other people's houses instead of keep their own in order. If people did not engage in that kind of greedy, manipulative behavior, there would be no need to be a statist about people's attitudes and behavior. Advertising, politics, people aren't in reality about things. Society needs to dispel hypocrisy. It's not professional.

  • Humans are inherently not Hypocritical.

    However, being a social being they have to wear many social masks. In the absence of these social masks it is impossible to contemplate a functioning society.

    Hypocrisy is the claim or pretense of holding beliefs, standards, behaviors, or virtues that one does not truly hold. In common usage, "hypocrisy" often refers to a failure to do that which one asks of others. Samuel Johnson warned against this characterization in writing about the misuse of the charge of "hypocrisy" in Rambler No. 14: that on the contrary, hypocrisy is the criticism of others upon their refusal to do things that you falsely claim to be doing yourself.

    "Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practice; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory, as a man may be confident of the advantages of a voyage, or a journey, without having courage or industry to undertake it, and may honestly recommend to others, those attempts which he neglects himself."

    An alcoholic's pleas for temperance, for example, would not be considered an act of hypocrisy as long as the alcoholic made no pretense of sobriety.

    Recent studies in psychology have identified the evolutionary bases and the mental mechanisms of hypocrisy, tracing its roots to adaptations that serve contradictory functions in the human brain, and to cognitive biases and distortions that predispose humans to readily perceive and condemn faults in others, while failing to perceive and condemn faults of their own.

  • Oh yea yea
