anthony9915 It's not hippie talk. just because you want want peace or non violence doesn't make you a hippie. If that was the case the only people who are not hippies are those who seek to hurt others. All I'm saying is it seems like the majority of society has become a me first who cares about you type of place. And I guess I made this thread to get some kind of reinsurance that some people still haven't fallen to that type of behavior and find out why people are acting more and more like this are they tying to imitate their favorite rappers or something. I mean even cheating on people has become something to brag about in my area and it makes me kinda sick thinking people find it to be something worth bragging about.

I could type something here but it would take 3+ hours to explain it. Some people exude a sense of self that does not rely on being liked or someone else's approval. There are books, treatises, abstracts out there that can help you find the answers you seek. And when you're done with that you will be able to come back with that PhD in Abnormal Psychology or something similarly relevant and enlighten our humble lives with a terrific analysis from your findings about perception.

As for scum like the Fonz I knew throwbacks like him in high school. When they got out in real world they didn't get far. Vietnam took care of some of them (I'm talkin' 60's) while the drudgery called life sapped the remainder to abject misery. A lot of these pricks got theirs figuratively speaking. I just didn't stick around to witness it, or care.

You must not know many good people I guess, because I don't really know what you're on about. Sure, there are people out there who are morally bankrupt, but people are inherently good, and it's always been that way. Don't ask me why some people get a kick out of being jerks. And sometimes the very best of humanity are treated the worst. Look at what happened to Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr, or Jesus.

Long story short, find better company, maybe? :)

Don't try to over analyze why people do bad stuff and then celebrate their behavior. Some people just choose to do bad.

If you don't care about others, people will eventually stop caring about you. That is the social karmic retribution existing amongst humans. Each side of this conflict is going to label the other as being naive. You'll either take up a "might makes right" attitude or a "helping gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside" attitude. Either way, a person would be selfish.

There are also those who give of themselves while expecting nothing back in return, and often refuse any such a thing when offered. I think that's the coolest kind of cat there is, quite frankly. Most people would immediately disagree with me if I simply stated aloud "that person is pretty cool" without giving this kind of reasoning, even if it was plain as day.

Cookie cutter degenerates that have always been around are not cool, by comparison. They need a swift kick to the arse from their mother, not praise for being a model human being.

I don't think being a prick is cool.

I mean, joking around roughly with people is fine, but you don't actually continue to do it if it's hurting them. I personally think the coolest people are the chillest people. The ones who can look out at the world, whatever cruel thing might be happening, through half closed eyes, say something simple, and then offer to help.

no same topic I'm just saying people around here brag about that kind of stuff and I the rapper thing wasn't relevant it was just added as an example wanting to know why people think it's good to brag about this stuff. I wasn't cheated on i'm just saying others brag about it.

you must not have read the first post. These types of people are not my friends. I'm just a bystander also they do this stuff to random people as well. I don't know if this is do to the jail close by or that it's rural area so everyone is just board but people around here treat others like dirt on a daily basis. I don't want to know why so I can celebrate it I want to know why so I can better understand why they think they can treat others that way.

The superiority complex, which simply is a douche bag complex, is a symbol of authority and empowerment and it's more highly favorable in society unfortunately

It's really pretentious bullshit, and most people get bored and tired with that "frigid asshole" facade when they grow up. At least in real life; On the internet, it never seems to get old.
