Gee, I wonder where I fall into such categories as listed by the OP?
Isn't bigotry/racism/etc. basically just a display of intolerence against people of a certain class or category? If so, then how do I fit in if I
hate everybody equally, including myself?
Does that make me bigoted? Or am I just being hypocritical?
Then again, I think there's already a category for me that the OP didn't
mention: Sociopathic. Let's think about that for a second...With
all of the abundence & diversity of life on this planet, human beings is the ONLY species that works so hard at upsetting the natural balance of life.
We pollute the land, air & water that all lifeforms depend upon to continue living & then conduct genocide to take control of dwindling resources; We
prey upon all species, including ourselves, for ideals (like greed & power-lust) that have nothing to do with survival; Even those people who don't
actually take direct action
against the world & all life upon our Earth seems to directly or indirectly lend aid & support to those who
. The list goes on & on, but these three are the biggest mistakes.
So really, does this mean I'm sociopathic? Is it really so hard for someone (like me) to hate the whole human race (including myself) for these
reasons (& similar other reasons), or is that really what sociopaths are really about? So would that really make someone a sociopath? If this is what
sociopathy is really like, then is it really insanity?
Does merely having the ability to question one's own sanity represent the confirmation
of one's own sanity?
The Shadow asks, "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?" I ask, "Does it really take a college degree in Psychology to figure it out?"
