Ok, maybe defense is not the right word. We currently live in a very sensitive social climate. Terrible things have been happening for centuries and yes, things must change but people did not have the platforms they have now , and they dont exactly use them to bring change, but to stomp on other people, whether its social media or real life. Being self righteous pushes people to grab their pitchforks and rope you into arguments to showcase their moral superiority. Normally, such endeavors are fruitless because I dont engage these people but what if I am in a professional setting or networking event? How does one learn to gently reply to said person who is self righteous as fuck and probably baiting , without being reported to the HR for being insensitive or even worse? Can conversational hypnosis help me with this?
