I dont know man.
Its like wondering why a starving dog is so damn yapity. If the world is as bad as that its more the reason to wonder how bizzare the mind is that
would turn their backs on that if given the chance.
IMO its like the 2 or 3 types of people that find a wallet with its ID and money inside. One finds it, keeps the money and throws the wallet in the
garbage because "screw humanity". To him Humanity is this vile thing that deserves to be treated like a dirty little whore. The other finds it, keeps
the money, but mails the wallet back because, well..."I am not an idiot but I dont want to think I am a jerk". "I am good" he says.
The last and most important one that makes you look in your mail box for a week with high hopes that the cash you REALLY needed is going to come back
to you after you know it went missing is the one that delivers it to you safe and sound...because "its what comes naturally"
He is the one to inspire others to do that when given the chance to be human.
I can tell you right now I know the type of people that would do the latter. It is a privilege to have known them. I guarantee you that they would FIX
earth and any good grace that came their way would be shared, even to their detriment. Wisely and without causing the world to collapse because they
dont stop at "People would die they are so sucky, there is no way to do what comes naturally".
I know the type to fight. Not by bringing war and conflict but WARRIORS none the less. The Alexanders (defenders of humanity) that scare us with their
dreams of something better that we are too fearful of to accept...yet still dreams we ask for when the dreams are just nice and pretty. Not too real
or wonderful..."nothing that requires risk or sacrifice, just a nice wet day dream before we HAVE to wake up".
I am sorry. If we are not ready then we are only WAITING to be shown what ready is. If its a useless case then just kill us off already and avoid this
disgrace. This is all a lie at that point. Like a monkey with lipstick forced to perform for kids in a circus VS a monkey in his jungle.
The fact that these people in the story come from our world and somehow THEY are ready for it means we all are. They are not special. People who still
think some of us are more special than others have never met a truly awesome person in their life. To those disbelievers there are no titans
Like I said I know the type to risk paradise and everything wonderful in life just to give the rest of us fools a chance at it.
Its a shame that the author didnt make one of them the ones to decide how miserable the world will be if they have a say in it.
