"Sounding young and naive"??

I say this as if I were speaking to a child, or to someone of a younger mental or physical age who thinks they have everything figured out and stand by what they think they know: anyone who lacks a certain kind of insightful quality that years of experience can only bring. Honestly, that is how you sound to me. I have heard that defensive tone before, in myself and others.

Wow. Not much respect for the potential of younger people, their capabilities based on individual merit, and the matter regarding quality rather than simply quantity of life experience. If adults were so full of wisdom and mind-enhancing experience as you claim, would we actually be having these mindless moral panics, an economy heavily based on war-profiteering (something the Libertarians are also against), and a media now festering with petty identity politics that routinely tramples on civil liberties? If you truly put Children First, you would respect them as people. What you are really doing with this type of condescending rhetoric is putting this societally enforced image of them first.

You must leave your comfort zone to see where the truth really is that you are obviously not willing or ready to confront.

Advising someone else to leave their comfort zone to seek truths that may be uncomfortable to them sounds like the proverbial pot calling the kettle black here.

As an adult to an adult:

How about talking to Butterfly Kisses and the rest of us as "person to person" instead. That sounds a lot less condescending, even though that seems to be your actual intent.

We may never talk again, and years from now you may learn from your easy to make mistakes, though if you do please don't feel that back when (which refers to right now) we were talking about what truly matters that I am still holding it against you, as I believe there is still time for you to change.

Good luck.

I wish you luck with changing as well, my newest comrade at posting.
