I'd just like to be clear: framing this as a choice between selfishness/selflessness, although arguably accurate, is beyond asinine. I would suggest that a more appropriate way of putting it is, "Am I a psychotic asshole who is delusional enough to believe that I could (or would even want to) live without any of the benefits of society for more than a few weeks or months?" For an uncountable number of reasons, the answer to that question should be "NO."


Lol couldn't have put it better myself! This site is so full of edgelords who think saying shit like this makes them some kind of cynical antihero.


That awkward moment when you think too hard about a thread in an anime site.


Actually, I barely put any thought into the thread at all. That was my gut reaction. On the other hand, I am spending way too much time trying to make my mind reconcile your avatar and screenname.

No. My only fantasies would be to make everyone on earth immortal, and give all humans dramatically more empathy and a heavy conscious; but if that's not a choice I would feel far too guilty to wish at such an expense.

I would save humanity. Our world is not perfect but I would not sacrifice it to get what I want.

Hm... As much as I despise a lot of humans, I don't think a cure to all diseases would be useful if I was the only one alive.
Before someone comes around saying that a cure to all diseases isn't a selfish desire, it's for a selfish reason you dingus.

Selfless. Less self. Middle ground is suitable for most of us.

Now that I think about it there really isn't anything that I want...that's sad lol. I guess I'll be saving humanity, even though some don't deserve it.

Somewhat tempting, but no. Let humanity live on.

Agreed and this is what I would do also.
