Dancing The Way


Hypocrite define as a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. A hypocrite person is one of the most respectable liar alive and his acts are continue to amaze people in century.

If you were to study cases of hypocrisy, I doubt you would find a single person who intended to become a hypocrite. Most people start off with good intentions and along the way their moral values somehow get off track. This is what I call a dancer wearing a mask. The mask may be changed, but once it is broken, your true identity would be revealed. The dancer should know where their limits before stumbling and fall down hard.

The desire to achieves something that is not in our grasp make us sometimes cross the boundary. When people present themselves as moral leaders, they automatically commit themselves to living by a higher standard. Many politicians and leaders branded themselves as hypocrites by failing the most fundamental rule of morality – leadership is made by example.

When I was in high school, Mr. Philips my mathematic teacher, talked to the class about the dangers of smoking. He had good intentions in warning us about smoking, but he compromised his message through a conflicting financial interest.

Because Mr. Philips had previously told the class that he owned stock [through his family] in a tobacco company in Indonesia that had done extremely well for him, he said, “I wouldn’t mind taking a hit on my stock if it meant some of you young folks would not take up the habit.” Because his capital gains were generated by people consuming tobacco, his ethics and stock portfolio were in conflict with each other. How hypocrite is that?

I have a friend who would often say:
Your actions speak so loudly, I can’t hear a word you say.”

Let me ask you something…Do you practice what you preach? Are your actions consistent with your words? Or you just one of the Venetian dancer?

a very good post and a very good question bluecrystaldude...i cant answer tht question because only people can tell me wether i'm a hypocrite or not! they can evaluate me better!

AntiBarbie said...

Can I be hypocritical? Eh, everyone is now and then. For example, I've told my Mom to quit smoking while I was still a smoker because it was affecting her health pretty badly at the time. People that live and breathe hypocrisies on a daily basis and are unable to see the situation for what it is are a tad frightening to me.

Sweetiepie said...

I am not sure either!!hehe..we as a parents are among the major role models in our child lives.They tend to copy what we did..I always try our best to show our kids the healthy behaviors for them to copy but not my hubby cuz he always told my kids not to smoke..smoking is not healthy instead he smoke all the time..but he will never smoke infront of them.I think he is more hypocrite than me.LOL

bluecrystaldude said...

Yup waliz.. but before people judging us, I am much prefer we judge ourself first. At least, when they did, I am much prepared :D

bluecrystaldude said...

Hye antibarbie. Thanks for visiting!

Yup, I have to agree with you. Some of us do need to be hypocrite. I do it myself too. But I think, if we done it with a good intention, it does not arise to many problems. What if people intentionally done it to us? Quite harsh isn't it?

bluecrystaldude said...

haha sweetiepie..

My dad used to smoke too. But when my big brother start to follow him, he quit (!). I guess he trying to make an effort to be a good role model too. But my brother hasn't quit his. lol.

I am not sure I should ask my parents whether they are hypocrite or not. :PP

Hye said...

hello bluecrystaldude

First, thanks for dropping by my blog. I am really hoping you can be one of my blogofriend too.

As for your question, first let me say my opinion :D As from what I observe, there are actually people who don't do what they say or I mean say what they do. Well, that's life. Sometimes, or should I say most of the time, people are more aware about power rather than being a real person, not caring if they will be tagged as hypocrite or not.

Hi dude:)can i call you that, please? thanks so much for the lovely comments on my blog:)really sorry this is my first one for you..

Am totally impressed by this post dude! There is a hypocrite in every person in one way or the other.. and you hardly get anyone who practice what they preach.I guess our politicians and leaders are the most hypocritical?

Peace said...

almost same sentiments as you... hypocrites have 'double-standard' too. they say one thing and do another thing. Their 'virtual-ruler' in their heart have different scales everytime. Get what i mean?

Not everyone is hypocrite for sure. Becos I am not one for sure.

For example, If i come across something which not worth commenting, I leave nothing. If I like something, I must leave my comments.

I always say, "Action speaks louder than words'.

Rashel said...

Good post. Dilemma is, in my mind, that hypocrites are probably the last ones who'd admit to being a hypocrite. Hope I'm not one of them ;-)avdtrl

bluecrystaldude said...

Hi Hye..

yup I have noticed that too. People especially who's in power, actually do not care what people perception on them. This is true, but for an ordinary people like me, I sometime take the judgment of people too hard. And if my friends say that I am a hypocrite, I don't want to be second to know after them. We should know ourself better right? :DD

bluecrystaldude said...

Nisha, dude would be fine :D

My leaders and politicians are hypocrite? Most of them. Or should I say 80% of them? lol. Especially when the election is around the corner. *sigh*

Thanks for dropping by too nisha :DD

bluecrystaldude said...

Hye peace

I understood it clearly. Not all post deserved a comment. Sometimes the post only to inform others about the blogger life to his or her friends. I should know.

Nice to hear that you are not hypocrite. People who managed not to be hypocrite usually has high value in his principle. I can see you one of it :D

bluecrystaldude said...

Hye rashel (nice name :)

I try hard not to be one of them too

mrviruz said...

well hypocrite person base on my understand with the help of your post they are person who is fake?

well i hate those kinds of persons but i wont generalize it coz we just have to understand some of them maybe they are just trying to be in or they are trying to associate themselves or make friends with us
but still thats not rigth
and for me the best way to find a friend or better be a true friend is just being who you really are

That should be my next post. About friendship. Oh no.. Spoiler! lol. Anyway, I do have couples of friends try to be hypocrite just to fit in. Pity them

bluecrystaldude said...

hey wow, are you referring to bluedreamer post?

Politicians are known from the start they are hypocrite. Even if they are not at the start, they will be one day. Seriously, it is hard to find a real politician who will stand up for the people when their priority at stake. Like the says, there is "no white politicians" in the world

haha.. Bluedreamer, it's ok. I already shot up to the sky to notice such common error. Thanks again Bluedreamer for the awards... :DD
