Having alternated most my adult life between a state of wilful self-deception and wistfully naive hope that maybe life really isn't so bad, the penny has finally dropped.
I've just realised that it's all a total f***ing sham.
Game's a bogey. Fold.
just seen this. care to relate at length what brought you to this conclusion ?
my own mood ? much relieved.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.
Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.
