    So Dogbert just presupposes that “what matters” is the same as “what you can receive external respect for”.

    Normally I’d just read that as an assumption of the character, but it goes unremarked here.

    As a teen in the 60’s I thought girls would be attracted to cultured soft spoken gentleman. Yup, I was a very lonely guy.

    Yes, but if that’s what’s really inside of you does it still count?

    How can you get respect for hidden qualities, you ask Dogbert? Your hidden qualities will show forth in your outward actions. Although, for you, ole boy, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for those good actions to come forth.

    What’s “inside” is what matters but it’s what’s “outside” that get the attention needed to matter.

    Dogbert is a great foil for Dilly’s random musings!

    Dilly, you need to change mentors… trade Dogbert for Wally…! One immediate plus is you will no longer need to walk the dog. Also, you will always have fresh coffee…!

    Humble isn’t humble if it’s not sincere and there’s no need to parade around the things that makes one good.

    Humility is nothing to be proud of.

    I find it relatively easy to be humble … except when there is a lull in the conversation. :)

    Yeah, most people talk about how great inner qualities like love, humility, respect, etc. are, while actually being deceitful, manipulative, hypocritical braggarts.

    Me? Yeah, I’m not like that at all. [snort]

    If only we’d listened to Scotty’s warnings about what sociopathic values he held….

    And Doggiebert is a sophist, making the bad appear good or vice versa, as circumstance requires.

    Itinerant “philosophers” are only a bit better than sewer-dwelling clowns….

    The very definition of virtue signaling.

    Isn’t it strange how what are considered toxic behaviors can have very positive impacts when properly employed.

    Maybe it’s another way of fighting fire with fire.
