I most certainly am.
Don't get me wrong. I am able to go out into the world and make friends, and I do enjoy my social life.
But I look at mankind at a whole. I look at the casual atrocities that most people are willing to partake in without a second thought. I look at how spoiled my own country is, where people bitch if they can't afford cable TV, while they should be fucking overjoyed and thankful they are eating better than the folks in Haiti. Most people in the world feel they have the right to say whether somebody they disagrees with should live or die, even - and that is outright disgusting to me.
Brutality is alive and well in the world. And there are a lot of people who are very well aware of what is going on, and there are a lot of people who are in a position to do something about it and choose to do nothing. I'm not saying people should give all of their disposable income to any fucking charity, I am saying that the sheer inaction of people who pretend to give a fuck is the greatest friend of the brutal folk.
There are people who are too lazy and apathetic to care about anything that happens outside of their cozy little lives, and yet they still bitch about not being able to live like a billionaire when they should be thankful they are living comfortably at all. There are people who do take action to support their hateful and fanatical causes, people who get pleasure out of supporting causes that they know will hate people they don't even know, because they have convinced themselves that they are always right. There are people who talk a great deal about everything that is wrong with the world, but are doing not a motherfucking thing about it.
These are the reasons why I have become a misanthrope.
I wish I could love mankind, but how can I when I can't even bring myself to trust it worth a damn?
