Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thank a bunches.


So why is racism so bad but misanthropy isn't? Why is hating one race or all races that isn't your own ten times worse than hating the entire human race? I don't really understand. What are your opinions on racism and misanthropy? Which do you feel is worse?

Enjoy!!!

Being singled out sucks. Singling people out on such petty characteristics creates rift between upon these divides, while misanthropists create divides between themselves and other people.

In a sense, it may better for all of us to be oppressed as to culture feelings of camaraderie rather than against those with higher living standards.

Because with misanthropy you are hating people for the legitimate reason of their own willful retardation.

Racism is just hating someone for something they can't control. Tsk

I remember a dude hating on the mentally retarded kids back at my school. He had pretty low self esteem so no wonder. Fucking asshole.

Misanthropy is usually more of an internal thing than an external thing.

With racism, usually the manifestation is lashing out, being discriminatory, mistreating people...generally external behaviors. Misanthropy tends to result in shutting yourself off and distancing yourself. Whereas a racist person may own a store and try to exclude a certain race, a misanthropic person wouldn't own a store (a store where you exclude humans wouldn't exactly work too well)

A little bit of a generalization but I think it makes sense.

Damn it, why can't you people masturbate me when I need it? Patting yourself on the shoulder gets REAL tiring after a while.

I think misanthropy isn't hate of humanity so much as hate of human ignorance. Misanthropic people dislike humanity because all of nearly all of human suffering is created by humans and they feel if we just got our shit together we' be fine. To me the reason that misanthropy isn't as bad because it mostly self defeating and harder to organize long term then other hate-based groups. Most of them would just self destructed before they could even organize anything and they did, they just self destruct just the same.

Misanthropes gripe about people and that's about it. Worst case they write a nasty blog post. Racists go out of their way to demean certain people, and at times deprive them of their rights and safety.

Shoulder masturbation, is that like a neck massage?

^ Also that.

Some key examples from one of my earlier posts.

Pretty much this. Most people who say, for example, that humanity is a disease and that the world would be better off without them aren't dangerous, they're not going to kill or harm anybody, they're just going to annoy you with their opinion they only have to feel superior without thinking too much but it's pretty easy to shut them down and that's why can't take them seriously. Most people can't.
