Won't say that everyone is, but indeed, the majority of the humans I've met throughout my life have been just like you mentioned.Tho I'm currently living as a hikikomori, so have absolutely no idea about what's going on outside as of now, nor care enough to check. But from what you said, guessing it's still the same.

Why exactly do I need help? I am happier than I ever was when I had a life outside of my room.

Why change anything? Everyone suddenly decides what is best for people....

I think the OP meant social evolution, as in social and cultural progress in the westernized world.

to shame and to judge them is one way of seeing it

but to try to teach them their wrongdoings without violence to attempt to change their view of thinking is another way of wording it (or at least this is how I view it)


No matter how you word it, you're still just imposing your ideals of what is right and wrong, and you're still worrying about things you cannot control. If you want to change the way people think, the best way is to simply educate them. You can't control what people will do with the knowledge they gain, but you can help to provide them with the knowledge they'll need to make better choices.

You're spending time with the wrong people....


lol but seriously try changing where you go, and the time that you go out, besides people need to relax so they go to bars and stuff. You cant really expect people to act mature, and modest at a bar, where they just want to have some fun.

The fallacy here is assuming that society and its moral compass has changed in anyway. It hasn't. You, as a person, have. That's the trouble with 'growing up' as the phrase goes. Your point of view changes. What once seemed like innocent activity that you can shrug off as 'not that big a deal' suddenly seems much more egregious, offensive, or downright stupid.

You have a number of ways you can deal with this: shrug and accept the activity, shrug and avoid the activity, become bitter and resent the activity, or become bitter and avoid the activity. There's probably a number of other ways to deal with it but I'm jsut a guy on the internet, not a psychologist. All of these are perfectly acceptable routes to take as long as you are willing to accept the issues and drawbacks that come from each route.

TLDR: Do what makes you happiest and don't regret your choice.

No, I think the OP is right on some things. It is a cultural thing. You look at a lot of adults, young adults and teens in American society today and a lot of them are not decent human beings. Disrespectful, rowdy, confrontational, arrogant, unforgiving, eager to capitalize on the faults and shortcomings of others but so adamant to defend themselves when they make mistakes; you find these things in abundance with a lot of Americans. And a lot of them do seek to get wasted on drugs and alcohol a lot, and a lot of them are aggressive and have inclinations to malice, and a lot of them do go around having a lot of promiscuous sex. Like the OP said, sex has become devalued for a lot of people. A lot of young people are in a rush to get laid, too. You could look at people at the Sophomore grade in high school and you'll find students desperate to have sex, in part because they don't want to face mockery and all the shit talking from peers because "Oh my God, you're still a virgin?! My God man!". Heck, some kids are sexually active in middle school, which just isn't right if you ask me.

and there's no such thing as "going forward" or "backwards" in the process of evolution of organisms.

it's either they can survive the environment or they don't.

I totally see how this solves problems.

Losing hope helps no one, not even yourself. There are people who work hard every day to try and make the world a better place, combating problems much more serious than the trivial drivel you complain of. There are people who, in the face of war and death and starvation, still don't give up hope. Yet here we are, in our comfortable little bubbles, thinking we can whine about everyday assholes as the ultimate failing of the human race and condemn our entire species to failure.

I'm sorry if it sounds harsh, but please. Try to have some perspective.

If you want society to change, you can't just sit at your computer and rant about it. You have to do something about it. Anything. From your other post, it seems that you have started to become disenchanted with the idea of positive change. I'm sorry you feel that way, and I hope that one day, you can regain that vigor for life that you once had and realize that it isn't quite as bad as it seems.


I like her too.

She wins the internet for the month for that wonderfully spot on comment. It wasn't harsh at all. It's reality.

"If I diminish you, I diminish myself". I don't care how many times I have to say that quote. Many of us don't live by it. This journey through life should be spent with all of us as one. Easier said than done I get. Actions speak louder than words. Sometimes the most powerful words to speak can be something as simple as ..well nothing. Silence.

Whoa. I've only been off the forums for about a week, but it seems like everyone is less spiteful of humanity, the mainstream, and the current generation. What's happened, I wonder?

And you say that because you were present at evolution for 20 out of 13 billion years?

But before that...does anybody have any idea on what I should do? I was thinking about trying to find some sort of utopian chatroom or getting more involved in these crunchyroll forums, seeing as people would have the same interests as me...

Lately I could just work and hang out at home shut out from the world but I do have the the urge to go out and have some sort of first hand human contact; but I swear going out and hanging out at public places is discouraging me with all the bs I hear and see (and yes I know I'm not the smartest person in the world)......but ya....need help...lol


You need to hang out with a different group of people, but I think you already know that.
