The world is a horrible place full of horrible people. Just saying.
So it has always been, so it will always be...
Funny you say that. Early on during these crazy times I kept hearing that this pandemic was bringing out the best in people. While certainly that's still happening, I've been seeing an increase in the worst in people. It seems we are incapable of disagreeing civilly and having adult conversations. Everyone is an expert and no one will budge from their position. It's likely no different than the centuries prior except now via social media and the internet, we can reach a wider audience with our crappy opinions and find more birds of a tattered feather to align with.
I think it might be slightly worse now since any idiot with whatever belief can find someone like minded on the internet.
I think if one looks closely, they will find that some of those horrible people are really good people, just misguided.
"Intent" is important, but actions have to be judged on the basis of how they impact other people.
Once I would have agreed with you but now I see it differently. The world is full of mainly good people who are happy to help out without being asked. It's just that the horrible people shout louder and make it seem worse than it is.
I refuse to believe that it's all bad. I have been all around the world, and experienced many different cultures and met a lot of people. I can say without a doubt that most people are good, kind, and hospitable.
Look at your daily life, and really think about it. I'll bet that 99% of the people you see on a daily basis are basically good people, who are just trying to make their way through life just like you are.
Sure there are bad people. Selfish, ignorant people. But I think they are the minority. But as they say, one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch.
What brought this on .
It's in large part why I took a hiatus from most things digital.
BTW, I'm not only pointing the fingers at others. I accept my own part in this opinionated mess we live in.
it is true but not new...
More fiber, they're just clogged up.
You’ll get Col. Kurtz someday, sir.
Don't blame it on the world, here in the uk the vast amount of people are great people, there is always a minority that try to spoil the peace, usually out of jealousy of the rest of us getting on with our lives happily. I have traveled the world and the same goes wherever I have been, the human race on the whole are open armed to visitors and are loving, generous and caring. The other day there was a guy on here who had to sell his guitar collection to pay for his wife's cancer treatment, the offers of help from this forums members was absolutely stunning. So open your eyes and don't stew in your misery.
Except for me. I'm lovely, Mum said so.
Did mum get a few Mamosas prior to when she in formed youlol?
