Same here. I walked away from him a year or two ago after he started getting very insulting when I pointed out some of his more paranoid MRA fantasies & gave him some facts & figures. As I see it, it's great to have a growth mindset, to have an internal locus of power, to believe in yourself, but one should never believe that we're completely able to do without the respect of anyone. When you drive everyone away like John's done, you stand, and fall, alone. I hope he learns from this & uses his growth mindset productively.
