Toxic Pirates, Toxic Flags

Contemplate the state of ocean affairs, I stumbled across a description of toxic pirates who have a distinctive thinking pattern. They tend to believe that:

1. Having power and control gives them excitement in life, and they are always seeking excitement.

2. They are unique. They see themselves as smarter, more creative and more important than ordinary people. They are narcissistic (self-centered) and grandiose (self-important).

3. They are never wrong. When they don't get what they want, or are caught in dishonest or manipulative behavior, they complain that they have been victimized, misunderstood, or mistreated.

4. They are good people, despite their manipulative, exploitative or otherwise harmful behavior.

5. Caring equals using. They believe that if you care about them, you will let them manipulate and take advantage of you.

6. People who work hard just aren't clever enough to attain their goals through "easier" and quicker means such as scheeming and manipulation.

7. They are entitled to have what they want regardless of the consequences for themselves or others. They can rationlize the use of any means in the pursuit of their goals.

It sums up what I think of Avienda as the spokesperson of Legacy based on public utterances and propaganda that almost always contradicts her flag's actions.

Re: Toxic Pirates, Toxic Flags

1- Want something done right? Do it yourself.

2- At least I know someone loves me. Now you noobs don't have to :D

4- Add explosive, not just exploitive

5- . In some cases, this isnt so much the mentality on intent as the mentality in retrospect.
Like it isnt- 'he cares, lets use em'
its 'he cares! im using him arent I? oh crap. should i stop? no, ill look like an ass. well, guess im gonna use him till someone calls me out'

#5 then leads to #3- Justification has many angles.

6- Take off the first part. Its not that other people arent smart enough. Its, 'why do it your way if I like my ways better?'

7- Of course. If you have a problem, stop me. Its how its always been done, aye?


An angle a day keeps stagnation away.

I read it anyway. Don't know why I did; don't even care about flag politics.

...I should stick with losing at the poker tables.

Re: Toxic Pirates, Toxic Flags

These things could all be said for any influential political figure by an opponent who resents them. I can almost guarantee they have, I just can't be bothered to provide an example.
