Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
Here is something most of you didn't know about me and for some this might really change how you feel about me, none the less hear me out okay? It's time to get personal.
In case I upset or offend you with this journal...well then you missed the point of it by several miles."Misanthropy is the general hatred, mistrust or disdain of the human species or human nature. A misanthrope, or misanthropist is someone who holds such view or feeling. The word's origin is from Greek words μῖσος (misos, "hatred") and ἄνθρωπος (anthrōpos, "man, human"). The condition is often confused with asociality."
I hate mankind, I really do, I do not like people, humanity to me is like this giant oil puddle covering a seagul, it is like a pile of garbage in the middle of a forest. It is is like a tiny aquarium holding a Blue Whale. Now do understand, I do not hate any individual in particular, even though pointing fingers is getting very easy these days, I hate people as a whole.
Now before you guys see me as this giant ball of hatred let me set some stuff straight. I love nature, I love this planet and I absolutely love life and cherish every moment of it.
I love making friends and consider myself a good friend. I might not like people but once I get to know you I could manage to love you as I do most of my friends.
Okay back to my pit of darkness and despair. Let's have a small example:Today Germany stopped giving Greek hospitals their cure for cancer because Greece ain't got no money. Germany is like "Ahhh you have cancer? that is so sad, this is great though because we have a cure that can help you with the treatment. What? Wait I'm sorry you're broke? No we don't take I.O.Us we're not doing this to actually HELP people, it is not charity. Don't make us laugh and please go die now.
You see, human nature has alway been about survival but survival translates into 'every man and woman for themselves'. If you are born in a crappy country with crappy living standards then tough noogies.
Sure some people might care, some people even sacrifice a lot to help. But it's too little, it is not enough and good luck convincing people to be selfless.
We rage wars for people sitting behind desks, kill millions non-stop for faith...don't make me laugh. It is sad that the imaginary has us kill what is real. No we're not schizofrenic at all. Freedom of Speech, freedom of thought, an illusion not not many of us share.
We spend billions on parking spaces, shopping malls while in other countries people starve uselessly as only 1/10 of that money could set them up with food for life.
Whatever happened to "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."? We simply do not care period. It's all about the money...paper. People go out and buy some crap, snack on it or store it, throw it on the floor, everyday they throw it on the streets, in the bushes, in the sea because they are too freakin' lazy to hold that shitty piece of paper 5 more steps until they reach a trash can. We waste more food than we can eat and we eat more than we should to stay healthy.
We live in a homophobic, egocentric, racist, sexist, greedy, polluting society. We are rude, yell at each other, get angry for the smallest things. We're violent, we torture, murder, hurt each other on purpose because it is easy, for personal gain, for sport...for sport...it's pathetic.
I know none of this will change. We have stopped evolving years ago, the golden age has long past, we're walking backwards now. As technology progresses mankind is failing to catch up, we have lost the will to advance, we have disbanned, the chain has been broken and all the little pieces are scattered around holding on to whatever they can find.
I love my friends, I respect them, their lifestyles and their believes. They are the only thing that allow me to have some sort of hope, this tiny grain that if enough people might spread some actual wisdom, some actual good behaviour and logic, we might get there.
If you feel I should not see life this way, mankind this way then by all means, do not get angry with me...change my mind.
My name is Tom...and I am a misanthrope.
