    Considering, as you point out, the absolute lack of sacrifice involved in boycotting ABI, it amazes me that folks come on here all proud of the fact that they do it.

    It's pretty clear to me that you are projecting your own judgements about yourself onto @SFACRKnight. I am reasonably confident of this because I do it as well: I project my own stuff onto others sometimes without being aware of it. It's natural, it's human. I spot it, I got it. I got it, I can easily spot it. Can you at least acknowledge that you are projecting in your responses here?

    Cheers! I sincerely do appreciate you participation out here. :slight_smile:

    Since you recognize that projection is one of your psychological defense mechanisms it is also clear you should recognize that you are projecting when you attribute or see the use of that defense mechanism in others. :sunglasses:

    Back at you. :sunglasses: You choose to respond; so, I am reasonably confident that you also use that psychological defense mechanism. Actually, we all use it (at least from time to time), although it may be difficult for us to admit it. To be clear, I admit that I project my shadow onto others.

    Cheers!

    So you feel we all use projection?:sunglasses:

    It sounds to me like you have farted your assent. And I own that I also fart in agreement to something someone says. :stuck_out_tongue: It's quite fun, actually. :sunglasses:

    Oh come now. Who doesn't enjoy feeling morally superior without making any sort of effort?

    Bureaucracies make regulations, regulators enforces them. Regulators are a part of any bureaucracy and experiences with bureaucracy can inform those who have never dealt with regulators directly what dealing with them are like. Sorry that wasn't clear.

    Democracies can make regulations too. I'm confused.

    Evidently true. Legislatures (in democracies) make laws, bureaucracies make regulations to carry out the laws reliably. It's been the standard in the West for about 150 years. Too bad civics isn't part of the curriculum any more.
