That seems to be the idea that helps people like Direckshun cope with the cognitive dissonance that comes with being against supporting oppressive regimes while voting for politicians who support oppressive regimes.
If Holden Caulfield posted on here, I imagine his posts would look a lot like Direckshun's. Everyone around him is phony. Never mind that he does the same things the masses do. He does it out of thoughtfulness and nuance. Everyone else simply acts via stimulus and response.
