Oddly enough, it seems that some of the most intelligent and creative
people end up with this "who cares, let 'em die" attitude. Probably
because they are shrewd enough to see what really is going on in this
world. That plus the world offers little opportunity for their talents
to be appreciated.
I think the people who are being callous here have a legitimate
reason for doing so. It's a natural reactionto living in a F*****
up world where killing and cruelty have become the norm. It isn't
easy to hang on to your humanity or your empathy for other living
beings these days - society is trying to make us all into empty shells
that were once humans. People that think or feel don't make very
good citizens or workers since they just can't seem to follow orders!
If these word apply to you know that you are in grave danger. Go
ahead and laugh at the notion - that's natural too, but in a quiet
moment you will know that I am right. Are you really happy or are
you just hanging on to your own smugness because you're afraid
without it you will be exposed for the vulnerable caring, feeling
person that you actually are?
You're ok, you've just been mislead. Treat others as you would
have them treat you, then extend that idea to all life. I think
you'll be happier with yourself and life, it worked for me anyway.
You can let your guard down, there are other thinking and feeling
humans out here who will stand by you.
