Maybe I'm just a bit synical and jaded as I'm over 40 so people get that way as they get older. But I personally to some degree have really grown a dislike for people. Like of course we're all just struggling to make it in this world. But when I think about it, only about 1 in 100 people I meet are genuinely: kind, considerate, happy, loving, joyful, interesting, generous, responsible, fun, normal, decent people. Most are the complete opposite.
Like 99% of them are: egotistical, arrogant, self centered, shallow, greedy, mean, angry, disloyal, and just over all evil.
I mean it's so rare anymore to meet just good hearted people out there. And more often than not even those people can actually turn on a dime. Even those "good" people you have to watch out for, as when they turn, they get really nasty.
I just dont' get it. I guess that's why I like the net in some ways as you can go on a forum and have a bit of a buffer between you and the people you talk to. And I'm not saying I think you'll are that way. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying people I meet in everyday life.
Like it just amazes me. I don't understand it. But then again, I'm not saying I'm perfect either. Far from it. But as least I make a bit of an effort with people I meet, friends, and family to go out of my way for them.
I almost feel like just moving to a small town where no one knows me and just keeping in contact with my good friends. Get rid of everyone else and start fresh. Like try and just make friends with decent people. But honestly I just think to a large degree, from this point on, I'll probably be very content having less people in my life. Like I hardly know anyone who I feel isn't a burden on me. LIke I know 3 people that are not too bad. But those are rare friends. Very rare, and even they have their moments.
But like I'm just talking about normal people you meet on the street. Like take a look at anyone who works in gohv rn ment, any professional, pho-lee- c, etc etc, like you want to see evil at it's finest? Like seriously? They epitomize evil. Like it's unreal. They're not even human. They have no souls at all. They're essencially like flesh eating zombies.
What a scary world we live in, we are living in the walking dead now to some degree it feels like.
Like I just think that if we ever ended up without: food, water, power, gas ... people would freak out. Like people would become total animals. They are now. Wait til they're not getting fed. They'd go nuts.

I think that somehow we are all going through changes as our society and the world seem to be changing around us and the weak underbelly of human fallibility is demonstrating itself to many of us in different ways and to different degrees.
