Allodoxaphobia is the fear of opinions. The origin of the word allo is Greek (meaning different), dox is Greek (meaning opinions and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Allodoxaphobia is considered to be a social phobia known as Social Anxiety.
What better place to build your resistance to this phobia than social media? For if you have an opinion you will find it rare that anyone agrees with you. As in most things, dogs have the answers to many of our own problems.
I can’t imagine a Siberian Husky caring what anyone thinks of them. They remain true to what they are and go their own way. For the most part this is true of all dogs not just Huskies.
Bernard Baruch put it well when he said, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
So here is my opinion today on Activist groups like PETA, VEGANS, Anti-Vaxxers etc.
They are in fact “Ignorant narcissists.”
Narcissists aren’t planned in their intent, they are planned only on their motive. Whereas, the sociopath is planned in both. Narcissists aren’t ill-intentioned per se, they’re emotionally ill-equipped to safely reach their motive without wreaking havoc on others.
What separates this mental illness from the rest of us is easy to understand. I have my opinions and you have yours. These people want to change the laws and force you to believe and live as they do.
That would be the same as me passing laws to make them eat meat, mush dogs, race horses etc. I wouldn’t care if they liked it or not because it’s all about ME!
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776:
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Stay out of my Happiness.
