Best 55 Quotes by Gad Saad – Page 1 of 2

“Life is short, and every moment is precious.”

“Some advice to the SJW castrati: Liberation is found through human agency. Each of us is an individual first with strengths and weaknesses. I am me. My group identities constitute parts of who I am but I expect people to judge me as an individual, not as a member of any group. Classical liberalism is founded on individual rights and freedoms. It is through this mindset that people flourish. Stop identity politics. I'm neither proud nor ashamed of my skin color. I am neither proud nor ashamed of my group affiliation. But I'm proud of my personhood.”

“The Ferrari is exactly the same in the human context as the peacock's tail is on the peacock.”

The Parasitic Mind Quotes

“A man with a conviction is a hard man to change. Tell him you disagree, and he turns away. Show him facts or figures, and he questions your sources. Appeal to logic, and he fails to see your point.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Any human endeavor rooted in the pursuit of truth must rely on fact and not feelings.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Any system that is built on a false understanding of human nature is doomed to fail. Building a society where the primary objective is to protect one’s fragile self-esteem from the dangers of competition will only lead to a society of weakness, entitlement, and apathy. Life is necessarily competitive; society is necessarily hierarchical. It does no one any favors to pursue a utopian vision of society where no one’s feelings are hurt.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Anyone who is willing to end a relationship because of a reasoned difference of opinion is not worthy of your friendship.”

More quotes by Alex Jones

“As British prison psychiatrist Theodore Dalrymple observed: “[I]s it not the case that we live in an age of emotional incontinence, when they who emote the most are believed to feel the most?”14 Remember though that one’s heartfelt outrage seldom says anything about the truth or falsehood of one’s position.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Beware of those trying to impress you with confusing word salads.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Do not fear the loss of a friendship.
Anyone who is willing to end a relationship because of a reasoned difference of opinion is not worthy of your friendship.”

The Parasitic Mind

“E. O. Wilson, the Harvard entomologist and evolutionary biologist, is reputed to have said of socialism: 'Great idea. Wrong species.' Any system that is built on a false understanding of human nature is doomed to fail.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Free societies do no recoil and the power of satire. They recognize that all beliefs and ideologies are fair game. Once we delimit what can be satirized, we are no longer living in a free society.”

The Parasitic Mind

“Homeostasis also plays a part in what researchers call the prevalence-induced concept change effect. Suppose that you are asked to identify whether a dot is blue. This should not depend on how many blue dots you've previously been exposed to-but it does. When there are fewer blue dots, people will code purple dots as blue. Researchers replicated this finding using pictures of threatening faces. When participants were shown fewer threatening faces, they judged neutral faces as threatening. In short, I posit that this is a form of homeostasis, namely people are driven to maintain the frequency of a stimulus at a set level, even if they have to engage in perceptual distortions to do so.”

The Parasitic Mind

“I opened up my rebuttal by explaining that there are only two types of theories: Those that divide the world into two types of theories, and those that do not.”

The Parasitic Mind

The Parasitic Mind

“In short, if your average voter had five key issues in mind, scored each candidate on them, and weighted them in order of importance, it was easy to understand how perfectly reasonable and rational people might have voted for Donald Trump without being deplorable bigots.”

The Parasitic Mind

“In the land of progressive Unicornia, science is only valuable if it is consistent with ideological dogma. Otherwise it is nothing more than bigoted hate facts.”

The Parasitic Mind

“In the West, the ideological indoctrination is subtler. It is achieved by an ethos of political correctness and best enforced by creating university campuses that lack intellectual diversity. Political correctness is like the sting of the spider wasp. Recall that the afflicted spider is dragged to the wasp’s burrow in a zombie-like state and is subsequently eaten in vivo by the wasp’s offspring.”

The Parasitic Mind

“In Unicornia, all people are just as likely to be terrorists. To think otherwise is to be a hateful bigot.”
