Shut up

It’s interesting to see how people who appear the most “liberal” (Read: chain-smoking, beer-swigging, cussing hippie wannabes) almost always turn out to be the most narrow minded and risk averse. They take pride in imposing their ideas on others and are unreceptive to new ones. They also tend to crack crude, unfunny jokes at the expense of others – an attempt to inflate their egos perhaps?

The seemingly “conservative” ones – inconspicuous and quiet wallflowers – speak only when they’ve got something of value to say and they’re always open to trying new things. Most importantly, they’re receptive to unfamiliar ideas.

I think the world could do with more people like them.
