“Religions deal with a belief. Believe that your God or sports team is the best. The belief that you can make it through.

Multi-level marketing deals with disbelief. You couldn’t possibly have fallen for a scam. You can’t just give up on such a bright future. You can’t fail when it’s so easy to succeed. So yeah, it’s like the anti-religion.”

“K-pop fandoms. I’m an outsider, not into K-pop much. I heard a few songs like Bang Bang Bang by Bigbang, Antifragile by Le Sserafim, and Nxde by (G)I-DLE, to name a few, and saw that the fans couldn’t accept any criticism towards their idols, especially Blinks and Army’s. 

For example, I saw Blinks fight with Ounces (the fandom of TWICE, a nine-member group) about the best girl group.”

“Don’t get me wrong, they do good work. They have helped a lot of people in their struggles with addiction. But it’s a little like a cult. Communion consists of coffee and cigarettes.”

“There was a big drama the other day on French Twitter. An economist explained that Bitcoin was nothing else than a means for money laundering, scams, payments, and speculation. It was not well received. Their facts were, ‘You didn’t do your research or what will you do when the banking system collapses.’ In other words, not far from the ones stocking up food and water in a shelter.”

“Taylor Swift Fans. I like her songs, but when I meet people who like her. They go crazy insane, and it’s the only music they listen to 24/7. I met one fan with $2k left in her savings and still spent it on a Taylor Swift concert. All her money is gone. If someone makes bad comments about Taylor, the fans go bonkers.”

“Exercise or, rather, the people who have their whole life revolve around fitness. Being physically fit is important, but I cannot stand people who treat it like the end all be all of their existence. I don’t mean athletes who invest their lives in playing a specific sport. 

In that case, exercise is a means to achieve their goal. I mean the people who constantly talk about their gym routine, post-workout photos from the locker room, and generally make people who don’t exercise as much feel like subhumans.”

“Atheism. There are those who 100% treat it like their religion. I don’t believe in Santa Claus, but I will make not believing in Santa my whole personality.”
