I'm pretty sure at this point nobody expects any sort of attempt to change anything you do or think will be successful. Referring to anything you dislike as a "negative mantra" does feed into this.

Anyway, if you had to summarize this "negative mantra" into a short sentence, what would it be?

I don't like condemning anyone here unless I deem it a 'political' necessity,

What are you talking about? You condemn all the time!

though I do obviously need to reiterate that I'm neither naive, stupid, unintelligent, nor worried.

It's not at all obvious why you need to reiterate that.
