Well, you can buy my claim or not but considering you don't know me personally, it means nothing.

Dying alone. When I say this, I am speaking literally. When we die, that's it, only the individual dies and nobody else. "Living your life in such a way that has a tremendous impact to people" is one of the most stupid things I've ever heard. It's another waste of time. Making people remember you won't bring you back or do anything else. It also holds the person who remembers you back and prevents them from moving forward.

Anyway, we're probably getting off track from the original post, so we'll just wrap this up as I believe helping people or relying on their help is what makes a person weak and worthless. You seem to think otherwise.


from your quotes and statements, i think you are a very bitter person with a very pessimistic outlook on life, thankfully not everyone thinks like you do, otherwise we we would be doomed. Being remembered after you die is far from a stupid thing, everybody wants to leave a legacy behind that will live long after they die. And I do not see how the person who remembers you is preventing them from moving forward, if anything it pushes them to strive for the same greatness that you attained, which is why you are being remembered in the first place.
And I'm not arguing for complete reliance and dependence on others, but in certain situations and scenarios, you are going to need the help of others. and this is where altruism comes you, but apparently you have never been in that situation, which is astonishing to me. where do you live?

Yes, I am a bitter and pessimistic person, congratulations for seeing the obvious. The world is also doomed so it really does not matter if others think like me or not. You say "everybody" wants to leave a legacy behind that will live long after they die. That is incorrect. You're claiming to speak on behalf of all 7 billion people in the world, and considering I am one of the certain to be, many of those who will agree with me, your statement there is wrong. Even if it's only one person, it still disproves a claim like that.
Now, what's the point in "attaining greatness"? When we die, we leave everything behind. Unless you've perfected immortality, it's just going to go to waste. Screw the next generation, and humanity will surely be the reason for the world ending.

You say you're not arguing for complete reliance and dependence on others. I am willing to admit that there are obvious scenarios where you'll need assistance from others. An example: Having to move heavy furniture, obviously a two or more person job regardless of how much you wouldn't want to accept it. I still refuse to call it help, rather "obvious required assistance". In times, however, where people WANT to help you, but you don't require it (say.. a relative or someone else you knew passed away), THEN relying on them for any sort of help is just plain weak...

I also live in Australia, although I fail to see how that's relevant.

Fifteen dollars? I can buy a box of pop tarts at Walmart here for sooo much cheaper. Like three.

Clearly America is the best forever.

The financial crash of 2007 highlighted the instability and lack of security of our current political and economic system here in the west. Things quickly began to deteriorate and fall apart, like a destructive flame burning away our hope of a better tomorrow. Consistently since we've been bombarded with news stories of protests, suicide, illness, famine and war, all five of which can be avoided by taking simple steps, so why aren't those steps being implemented?

I can't answer that question, maybe someone can, but for as long as those five things continue, the world will never improve. We're all aware of what happened to Amy Winehouse, to Heath Ledger, to Robin Williams, sad moments for us all, yet since we've heard of terrorism like in Paris at the offices of Charlie Hebdo and in Syria. Disasters have occurred, like the recent plane crashes such as MH370, MH17, IAA8501, GermanWings 9525 (which was suicide). These are the big things. On a small scale, here in Dublin five homeless men have died in the past week of starvation and hypothermia, while the Fascist government leader Enda Kenny eats cake at an event celebrating... something (no seriously, look it up).

We see the financial inequality gap widening, people barely able to survive on the amount they're being paid because of the inflation brought on by the EU's decision to weaken the Euro so that we could export more (gr8 idea guys it's working so well that a box of American pop tarts cost $15 here).

I don't know why I get so down about these things, or whether or not other people even care about them. I see them as massive hurdles in my own life. I want to fight back but after being diagnosed with depression last year and dropping out of school due to illness recently, there's barely anything I can do. I've thought about violent protest, or self-immolation to make a point, but what'd change? The world is already burning. Adding another body to the mix will just make the fire grow.



Peace Corp is a good option. You could could go out and protest injustices like Ferguson in the world. You could help out with serving food to the poor. You could run for local office and try to make a difference in your community

Anyway heres the clash I always found them inspiring when thinking about shit like this

since i don't personally know, i didn't want to state it as a fact when i have no reason of believing except for these responses we have shared. some people have a different internet persona than they have in r.l. and in regards to your location, i was just curious to see where a bitter person like yourself calls home

I would like to make a few things clear based on what you said, when i said everyone wants to leave a legacy behind, i was using everyone figuratively not literally. but i know for a fact the majority of people in the world would like to be remembered for something good they have done, no matter how small, and many fail to accomplish this because of how hard it is. I think this might be why someone like yourself will not even bother to do it, because you don't want to put in any effort and you are probably afraid of failing, so it is much easier to just not try. Also, i think your quality of life you are currently living will be significantly diminished if it was not for the people of the previous generation that came before you and "attained greatness" to help you a much better life now, i mean things like electricity, cars, etc. so you can say screw the next generation, if the people of the previous generation said the same thing, you probably won't have internet as a medium to make such statements. I also don't think depending on someone for comfort is weak, if anything, it makes you a strong person, having the courage to seek guidance when you are in need, rather than bottling it up inside.

I also made you admit that you have received help in your life, at least once. when you said "having to move furniture, obviously a two or more person job regardless of how much you wouldn't want to accept it" you might not want to call it help, but that is what help is, you can refuse to admit it, but I'm sorry to tell you that is the definition of help. google it.
