Apathy is not something someone should try to achieve.

Apathy is the foundation of evil acts.

It's opposed to our humanity.

Be happy you're not all too apathetic.

Peace.

I hate to see people entertain these ideas. Society might function better if we were all apathetic about anything but the daily grind, but would life be any better?

Life without emotion is like plain, white bread sandwich with nothing in the middle.

Easy, just make everyone slightly depressed. Think back to when you where a kid and had a pet. Now remember when the pet died and how that made you feel. Hold that feeling in your heart and you will achieve what you desire.
No passion, no ego, no ambition, no real or meaningful sense of desire.

Some things in life, are only there until you learn to out grow them. Maybe this is the case with emotion... maybe not...

An apathetic person would not care about the sprinkles on the ice-cream...

If by "evil" you mean killing, murdering, lying...

all of this is the result of anger, jealousy, pride, and embarrassment, all emotions...

You don't "need" ANYTHING... AT ALL...

Need is when something is required for you to fulfill your DESIRE.


I want to buy that new computer, so I NEED money....

I don't want to get wet, so I NEED an umbrella...

Not true at all. Politics are the most emotionally driven things in the world.

For example, most Republicans are fighting for "Christian Values" (Emotionally Driven - from religion)

and Most Democrats are fighting for lower taxes and equal laws (Emotionally Driven - from unfairness)

In fact, I don't think it can get more emotional for some than religion and politics...


Unfortunately, some were "raised" to believe this and that, so they don't QUESTION, or see the positive side of Apathy, and therefore there are unable to see from other perspectives (enslaved by one's own mind)...
