I think humanity deserves every single bad thing that happens to it watch

    I've recently come to this notion, after a lot of thinking, and I mean years of existential thinking and day dreaming. I've come to realize that humanity deserves every single ill that falls upon it. We're terrible as a species, selfish, egotistical, heartless and greedy.

    Like animals really; animals in suits. And really as much as I try to reject this; and I really do, it still is as clear as day in everything I see.

    In general people are actually quite dumb, in fact compared to me; as bad as I know it is to say, i'm pretty sure most people are significantly dumber than I, which says a lot because in all honesty, whilst I acknowledge I have an above average intelligence, I don't think I'm exceptionally smart.

    I think our culture is really, just, gross. I mean it's such low class culture if you think about it, the age of the Kardasians, niki minaj, etc etc, I mean we've just become so dumb as a species it's actually depressing for a minority of us that can see beyond the horizon, to the few of us with the intellect to see it for what it is, it's absolutely appalling.

    But like many people, I have stopped being indignant about it like I once was, I've accepted things the way they are, and it's made me a lot happier. It used to depress me, and I felt so alone, boy did I feel alone and unrelatable.

    These days though I can't help but feel that I have a general distain for people and really to be honest only see people as being things to use for my own gain. I don't see the point in connecting with anyone anymore, especially since I've been betrayed so many times by close friends. That's a whole other story, but in short, when it came to making money; over 10 years of friendship quickly went out the window with one particular friend and I'll never forget that.

    But really, I feel myself becoming so dettached it's scary, having thoughts that make me feel old, that make me feel inhuman, because I feel so dettached from people as a whole. I used to care, so much, I genuinely did, but i've been hurt so badly by people I loved that I've just stopped caring, I lost the capcity to somewhere along the time, and now I feel like a sociopath.

    I am completely numb and without feeling towards people. I could see someone die in front of me, and would probably not feel anything or care, I just don't care about anyone but myself anymore, and it feels nice in a way, I don't suffer, I don't suffer the burning pain of lonliness, depression, sadness, but at the same time I feel empty because I don't feel. When I hear about things like the refugee crisis or anything like that, I honestly couldn't care less as long as it doesn't affect me, as far as I'm concerned that's all I care about, I don't want more people here because I live in london and i feel it's too crowded.

    I sometimes think the city is too over populated and we need to put measures to reduce the population, maybe a one child policy or something. I catch myself thinking these things and really feel like an old man, I hate it really, I miss being an idealistic hippy puffing on a joint and imagining a socialist world, but that is a pipe dream and I know it is.

    I find myself becoming more right wing every day, and just really having a massive distain towards people, to the point I avoid social interactions at all costs and see it is drudgery to talk to anyone. If someone starts talking to me the first thought to pop into my head is how to stop them speaking. There's a element of fakeness to it and acting on my part because I recognize to achieve my ends I need to function socially, so I smile and make small talk and may come across as a social person but underneath I'm not doing it out of fun or to be nice, it's simply to achieve an end, be it in the work place or any other scenario I need people for my advantage and where social finesse will improve my situation. I've become incredibly good at faking and acting.

    It wasn't always like this, I was so different once. I don't even recognize who I was before to be honest. I've been so hurt by people, and by one person in particular who changed my life forever. It's like something clicked in my mind and I just don't have feelings anymore. I honestly feel like I don't care about anyone but myself and I know it's bad to admit but I'm being honest.

    I wonder if anyone can relate...

    If you're going to measure my intelligence by the syntax of my words rather than the content of what I'm trying to say and the picture I'm trying to paint unto your mind then you sir, are a huge part of the "dumb" population I am referring too.

    So in other words your lack of capitalisation of letters means you are somehow smarter than the people you are calling dumb.

    Easy there Master. You do repeatedly have 'destain of humanity' and 'dettached' as OP content preceded by how much more intelligent than the average individual you are. Obviously, you're going to be called out on those kinds of errors. It's just too easy.

    Honestly. Because you do not sound well.

    You sound exactly like two people I know personally, just prior to them doing bat sh*t crazy things. They both have bipolar disorder mental health issues and require medication, but when they feel 'well' they cease taking their medication and begin sounding like the OP.

    This is exactly how i feel set for the humanity deserves it part. You have to acknowledge the whole world does not have the same chance at life as we do. Some of us who are exceptionally smart use it for their own psychopathic gains i think they've caused a lot of misery in the world too by manipulating it for their own twisted gain.

    But yes this is how the world works on the face of it, people just use each other on the notion of self interest. We are a pretty sick species in that sense. Breaking society down to that level can take the joy out of it. Enjoy it for what it is, that's if you can.

    Well you can just **** off; I don't care for your circumstance, but to think that every person in the human population(s) deserves bad things happening to them is just ****ing disgusting.

    I'm saying this, and I don't care whether I get carded for this (well I do, but) it needs to be said.

    Saying this includes me, so just **** off, my father, my family, plenty of other "good" people, I'm not obnoxious, bar online sometimes. Do you know not every dumb person is actually morally bad either?

    You think this for all those other people "like" you, who can see beyond the horizon.

    And yes, probably seek a medical professional like others have suggested above, because in fact I do actually care for your being, an anonymous person across the internet. I actually do hope that you get better, or recover, or gain some of that feeling, some of that naïvety perhaps. Not everyone is self-centered enough to hurt everyone.

    I don't hate you by any means for syaing this, but I'm bloody angry with you, yes, as you can already see.

    In short, humanity includes me, and people I know, and I dislike that, to put that lightly.

    I reckon you should look into Dunning–Kruger effect; and attempt to avoid falling into the trap in the future especially if you are going to suggest you are not exceptionally smart (i.e. not smarter than a lot of people) and yet somehow most people are dumber than you.

    OP I understand the premise of your argument, yes as a species we're greedy and there are many of us that are just terrible, but I think you have taken your disdain for humanity too far. We're not all bad, and I tend to think the people that are capable of doing the unthinkable are usually very intelligent people, and not your average Joe or Hannah. Your lack of emotion is something that is causing you to feel the way you do and not other people. I think perhaps that is something you should work on, which is easy said than done I know.

    Im a computer programmer by profession, a profession which requires at least an above average IQ. You cant learn programming languages and become a programmer without high ingtelligence.

    As far as the dunning/kruger effect goes i honestly probably underestimate my intelligence if anything

    I understand why you have become a nihilist and why perhaps you feel this way. However, it will do you no good to detest all of humanity. You cannot condemn your entire species. Yes, you can be cynical of this plastic culture that so many people are caught up in. But the extent of detachment you are feeling is worrying and I do think that you should seek medical help. Best of luck to you.
