The 3 hickeys on my neck right now...
Hmm.. I'm torn between two similar sounding and equally aggravating yet importantly different "Arrogance" and "Ignorance". Those two are pretty much the straw that snap the camel's back in 6 places.
Radical opinions and thoughts. It doesnt matter what topic people have radical views on, in my experience they are all bad. By defintion, being radical is the opposite of tolerance and understanding.
I already view life as inherently devoid of any purpose. The purpose is what you make of it. If there were no suffering, I could still live my life the way I want.
Your logic is flawed from the start as you assert "conflict breeds suffering" which is not necessarily the case. Conflicts do not necessarily need to cause suffering (at least, personally, if I'm involved in some (huge) conflict, it doesn't feel like I'm suffering). Honestly, your Everyone would have to agree with everyone else at all times, because conflict breeds suffering, so there would be no individuality. reasoning is just completely off in my opinion.
The things you're concluding do not follow automatically. Perhaps they follow from your definition of suffering, but they surely don't follow from mine. Take your desire example for instance. I can still desire something in a world without suffering. Even if I don't have it right now, it doesn't mean I'm suffering simply because I don't have it.
And that is so bad?
Most of the population of humans.
Violence. Is that too generic?
A Trump Presidency
Right now? As those above have said: Donald Trump.
And the dark, bigoted forces that put him there...
At the moment, Donald Trump.
As much as I'd like eliminate Trump, I'd actually eliminate whatever made so many people vote for him. That's the scary thing. Enough people wanted him that he got there.
Racism and misogyny.
Sadly it's not possible..
I know the title said "one", but I have a lot:
- stupid people
- ignorant people
- myself (the rest of y'all can go ruin yourselves. I want no part in it)
- or everybody else
- the Star Trek reboot films
- misogyny (i'm so tired. I'm just so tired)
- but mostly my brain (not in a good place right now)
- and Trump (i might eventually have to censor his name, just to keep myself from reacting)
I just hate it that I'm being so affected by things that are happening literally on the opposite side of the planet. Help me.
