2. There is the Optimist who believes the glass is half full!
3. Then there is the Realist who knows it is just half a fucking glass!
Right-wingers and Left-wingers may call a realist a Fascist but this is not true, a Realist purely understand that certain measures must be taken to prevent problems from occurs, usually going to the source. A realist will take inspiration from the working of nature.
Realist are not blurred by politics they are fed daily.
"How do animals teach their young to stop doing something that is wrong? They strike/bite them when they do that certain thing...the young then understands the consequence of this action and does not do it. So making corporal punishment in schools filled with many potential irritations illegal was ridiculous, schools aren't failing the children our government is not disciplining children and they are growing into undisciplined adults. (Criminals)
Often used to describe people who'se political views hold no right/left-wing loyalty and instead use objective information in order to determine their stances on issues.
Also a term used to describe Atheists and Agnostics incorrectly. Realists are often Atheists and/or Agnostics because Theism goes against their nature to believe only facts and instead rely on faith.
Realists suffer from trust/confidence issues and are often apathetic because they uaually refuse to act without knowing the reprocussions beforehand. Realist's don't normally react well to society because of their refusal to fall under social categories and because their lack of trust in others often forms ego problems.
Realist: "According to General MacArthur, General Eisenhower, General Spaatz, Fleet Admiral Nimitz, and many other extremely high ranking US officials in charge of the pacific at the time both bombs were extremely unnecessary as Japan would have surrendered regardless. Actually the bombs played little effect as the Russians taking Manchuria is what ultimately made Japan surrender. The Atomic bombs were really nothing more than a giant war crime that Truman got away with."
brillant idea has been shot down by reality.
Rupert the Realist: Because it's impractical to keep a cop in my pocket and people like you drive me crazy. Now get off my porch before you learn the reality... OF CASTLE DOCTRINE!
Those who profess realism, also believe that truth consists in a belief's correspondence to reality. We may speak of realism with respect to other minds, the past, the future, universals, mathematical entities, moral categories, the material world, or even thought.
Realists further believe that whatever we believe now is only an approximation of reality and that every new observation brings us closer to understanding reality. Realists also believe that a common understanding of reality brings peace and is the basis for morality.
