    1. Even though Justin’s literally 4/5ths of Rick and Morty. He’s literally Rick AND Morty. Like, Dan mostly grumps about ngl.

    1. Um because he’s pointing out about online bullying and its about his life this is just a short clip of the interview so by asking why is this news says you probably bully people online yourself

    2. “Common topics for news reports include war, government, politics, education, health, the environment, economy, business, fashion, and entertainment, as well as athletic events, quirky or unusual events.”

  1. Observe that in the Book of Exodus, it describes how centrist Christians are. For instance, within the ten Commandments, it does censor Christians by forbidding us from taking the Lord’s name in vain in #3, and in #9, it forbids lying as well. Nowhere in the the Ten Commandments does it say that you can’t say anything that could hurt people’s feelings. The Bible is a book written for the Will of God to keep us free and to worship Him.
    14:27. And when Moses had stretched forth his hand towards the sea, it returned at the first break of day to the former place: and as the Egyptians were fleeing away, the waters came upon them, and the Lord shut them up in the middle of the waves.
    14:28. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots and the horsemen of all the army of Pharoah, who had come into the sea after them, neither did there so much as one of them remain.
    14:29. But the children of Israel marched through the midst of the sea upon dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall on the right and and on the left:
    14:30. And the Lord delivered Israel in that day out of the hands of the Egyptians.
    The Bible repeats over and over again, that here was a wall of water to the right, and a wall of water to the left, and that the Israelites walked right through in between them on dry ground. I believe we need to walk a tightrope right in the center to safely get through the division in this country: Then, when the waters come back together (country unites), our enemies will be destroyed.
    This scripture helps us to understand that we are already centrist, and when the country unites after everyone wakes up and sees who our true enemy is, our unity will destroy our common enemy. This is coming I believe within the next few years.

  2. “Are you a person or a collection of reactions?” I was not expecting such a profound truth bomb when I clicked on this

  3. Whom would be nasty to him? Fundamentalist christians?

    This is enlightening. Wow. He has been through therapy. It is clear, and I am so glad, because he is an amazing creator and artist.

    Wouldn’t it be nice, if he is spending time, trying to help the Incel communityto find their way out? I bet he is.

    That is a story I w0uld watch for at least 30 minutes, but with great production: a series.

    Thank you for sharing this.

  4. “Caution in handling generally accepted opinions that claim to explain whole trends of history is especially important for the historian of modern times, because the last century has produced an abundance of ideologies that pretend to be keys to history but are actually nothing but desperate efforts to escape responsibility.”
    ― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

    “Responsibility is a unique concept… You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you… If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
    ― Admiral H.G. Rickover

  5. Anyone wondering why this is news worthy, basically Dan is discussing mental health. If you think the world/society owes you something, you’re gonna have a bad time. Yes you can speak out and create rules to try and make your society better, but no one owes you anything. The more responsibility you take for your own life, the better off you’ll be. If we want to increase the overall health of our society, we need to continue this conversation of self responsibility. Hope everyone is doing okay out there

  6. The true creator is Justin, let’s just get that straight, not saying that dan doesn’t have his spot, because he is responsible for some fine tuning, that lead to the brick of gold we have today, most of us have been threw bullying of some sort, those who are strong got over it, those who weren’t are their feelings….

  7. The more people allow what is virtual, what does not exist when you press an off button, to touch them where, normally, reality is the emitter/receiver/vehicle the more we need people like Mr Harmon to remind people of what it is they are actually doing. You can always not chose not to react. People who take everything personally, EVEN FROM COMPLETE STRANGERS(Who are not even physically PRESENT…had to modify this), also have a psychological problem.
