The way society is going a lot of people are losing faith in humanity. In losing their faith and trust, they are losing their will to survive and live because the only way to survive and live is to depend on fellow humans for----non other than money, which is needed to live.

Well, you can’t expect people to be Pollyannas about life because being a Pollyanna does not always work. People are just going to take you for a fool. So what should a person do when he or she loses faith in humanity?

There are two options:

(1) Kill ones self

(2) learn to be conning and deceitful and manipulative to get whatever you need to survive. Even the powerful have their weakness and their buttons. Just find out what they are and you’ll get whatever you want and need.

What are your thoughts on this?

I have lost my faith in humanity a long time ago, but I choose option 3
So much thing too do, streaming, video game, reading and drinking, and take care of the house from time to time :P

So I go out to work and buy beer/food, the rest of the time I stay in my little slice of heaven and amuse myself, having some friends don't hurt either. but killing myself, no way, I die when it's time, and I can't be a complete jerk either.

Humans are pack animals we will always depend on eachother.

Sadly humans are not loyal at all consider a min 70% of people are cheaters according to studies. Meaning at best only 30% of the population is even trust worthy in a relationship. Its pathetic.

There is also an option 3 similar to option 2.

Above poster highly missunderstood the options ><

Terrible options. Very shortsighted as well.

Faith in humanity is over-rated. Faith in yourself is more important.

Let the dregs wallow in their own feces, don't let them drag you down too.

Live a life you can be proud of.

Your options mean nothing to me, because they go against my belief; therfore I create my own answer.

Find happiness. It is the only thing you can do in this life. Though we might be different with our choices, our vision, our ideas become a stepping stone. We leave behind a path for others to find; in our wake we define a generation.

You look at society like it is a joke, because you choose to lay down and give up your voice. A grave mistake to let them curropt you, your mind, your core.

People can lose their faith, and gain their trust. Only those who give up at the sign of decline; you will never understand the power of the people if you never try to find happiness with one another

Lets do this then. I've been there, did attempt the self kill and well found that definitely to be the lamest option and apart of what happens after the failure of those that choose to do option number 2.

All you really gotta do is accept death in every way without pursuit. Death as a teacher as hindus say is a deceitful undertaking for the real version. We learn fastest by holding onto nothing. Death as it has become when defined in advanced is a letting go of everything but a lesser path than just being present and no pursuit. Much of your complaints come about because you expect of yourself and of others, instead of being present. Someone that experiences expectations often experiences themselves emotionally going up and down in feeling comfortable with everything, til they die and let go of all of it.

My alternative is to command death, now. You are death as an individualization of consciousness capable of anything. My way of bringing death is to hone my ability to communicate all I know as I make words that form into what is true for me as some point I understand synchronizing my words also affects all I perceive. This requires being present, feeling everything you do, forever. This way of death understands that at some point something I will say, like everything I've said, affects my body. The better I become at expression, the greater effects I experience. While instead of an expectations this has become a constantly indescribably changing affect that I recognize more and more control of. So I let go of this and move on, instead of forcing myself to become better at my healing I understand its inevitable.

Never ever holding onto anything of any belief that I know the future is necessary. The only way I found successful to know the future and control death without forcing death is to understand the repression occurring, then one can understand what has to happen to heal repression, while this is still creative enough to not provide any definite future except that stuff does improve.

All of your complaints are due to expectations. Expecting of anything is repressing yourself. End that and you'll feel much better about all as you begin to recognize that everyone is the same even if we are obviously unique.

Giving into your option number 2 is also why people are pursuing to kill themselves in a human version of death, instead of understanding all time/space and controlling yourself to experience death as evolution in a way even biblical jesus failed to do because he chose to force his death then found himself to be in betrayal of his premise of existence as he denied his responsibility and blamed his imagination as he had his issues with the notion of god even though this is his imagination. We are creativity incarnate, define yourself as you'll be. Fortunately, creativity is always forgiving and one can always choose to be the way they know is right.

The mischievious nonsense and pretend that someone cannot see through your lies is all along the same approach of lacking awareness to confuse yourself into believing this is ever successful. If individuals continue this long enough, you'll have reality as we perceive now.... with educational systems teaching ugliness and parents that are as irresponsible as governments.

So what happens when individuals fool themselves long enough. Well we are all energy, science recognizes all this electromagnetic everything everywhere and calls this light by definition even if they won't associate light/electromagnetic/energy/consciousness together very well because this would make everything way too obvious and never provide a foundation to ever work for others.

We generate everything ourselves, so if you got masses of individuals that set themselves similarly to finally acknowledge their choices are bullshit and they gave up on themselves to ever accept government and do this long enough to backwardly find out their choices have made their lives everything they never sought except in denial... well that means recognizing truth through bullshit choices also affects all electromagnetic energy perceivable.

I believe there are major electromagnetic shifts across our planet and beyond once masses start to recognize their own lies and confront themselves. One individual aware can do this, but since humanity has been preaching incompetence for so long, one has to believe in themselves to know active control. Instead a dormant control is occurring for sleepers that still affects everything occurs as groups of sleepers begin to align to perceptual choices. Its all in the definition... the way we define ourselves.

Haha, I don't think either of those 2 options makes any sense

Why on earth would you hold yourself to a standard against the rest of the world? That's stupid. You're you - just be you. Who cares what's going on elsewhere?
It's poignant to be on top of current events in the world, but if a mass murderer is out there killing people: why in the name of Mike do you think you'd need to kill yourself or become a con artist because 'the world is baaaad?' Stop being a child.



Maybe I'm not understanding the point of the question, but this seems like whining to me. Just do something about it rather than complain.

Well, after being disillusioned, people acquire common sense about how other people will probably behave. Once a person has that, what is or is not practical becomes clear. As long as people can survive on their wits and diligence, hope is always possible.

People find that hope in different places though. Some get into politics, others religion. Others take refuge in their subjective, personal experiences, and through that, keep a desire to see what might be popping up past that next bend in the road.

I think if you always have a way to fight for yourself, and a way to pass the time painlessly, each when necessary, then there isn't anything you can't endure. Many do better than endure, flourishing.
