    You think being brainwashed relates to the specific issue you were talking about (Instead of being a more general thing), where you label only those you disagree with as being brainwashed.

    To explain, why don't you think that the opposite viewpoint espoused by many white men isn't itself a product of brainwashing? Why is that a reasonable assessment, but what you disagree with is automatically brainwashing.

    Brainwashed meaning what exactly? And no, I don't think all people in any group are brainwashed into anything. But then again I also think it's poor form to call out another user by quoting a post they made a mistake in and arguing based on that single word mistake.

    Brainwashing may too strong a term, but I do think there is an element of that with those who consider themselves victims in perpetuity because others have continually pointed this out.

    Agreed, but it is a topic that I have pondered many times before, so I am participating in this discussion for that reason.

    I think at this point most people are amending the statement to read "many" instead of "every". It still warrants separate discussion using that terminology.

    The moral of the story here is be careful what you post lol. You don't want to fall victim to what I call the "sexting teenager syndrome."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    or they may consider themselves victims because they have personally felt the sting of victimization/racism

    Oh yeah.

    For those who haven't read Games People Play, one of the "games" is called, "NOW I've gotcha', you son of a bitch." Most of us on DP play that game now and then. Some play it more than others.
