Good Manners Are An Agenda...
Have you ever met a well refined and cultivated human being that wasn’t a snake?
I’ve been thinking about this lately.
Every single person I’ve met who is well mannered and polite tends to be (upon getting to know them just a little better) highly unlikable and completely un-trustworthy
What I’ve come to see is that people with good manners tend to be cowardly. The good manners are a defensive/deflective shield.
Yet cowards have deeper personality flaws beyond the obvious.
So when you get past the refinement you find someone who is prone to paranoia and treachery out of an inflated sense of “me against the world”.
Yes, it’s obviously easy to see this in politics. Narcissistic people are known to be flatterers and bullshitters. And politicians spend their entire lives ingratiating -which isn’t healthy.
But I’ve noticed this everywhere.
Gruff, uncouth and rude doctors tend to be as good (if not better) than ones with good bedside manners.
And the same is true of professionals in every field.
In fact, in business dealings I’ve discovered that good manners are almost always a sign incompetence, a bad deal or flat-out criminal intent.
An unfriendly, uncouth, loudmouth is, generally, the most honest and reliable person with whom to have business dealings with.
It’s obvious when you think about it, but good manners and refinement are designed to act as a disguise with the intent of ingratiating.
Someone who frowns at you, want’s nothing from you.
Someone who smiles at you, has an agenda.
