Warning: Giant wall of rant like text incoming.

What makes you dislike mankind the most? What about humanity depresses you more than anything else? For me it's ignorance. Specifically speaking I was just reading an article on a new deadly opioid mixture that's killing people in several states. I have a stake in such topics because of my past. I have been addicted to drugs as well as painkillers and fought hard to come off of both. The article doesn't bother me, it's all the damn comments I read that people left behind. I cannot fathom the sheer stupidity and ignorance I read at times. It's staggering. Everyone's an expert because gosh darn they're so [email protected]#ing awesome. As if their sheer awesomsauce could just shrug off addiction because they're so much more uber than those sad pathetic weak excuses for humans.. Seriously that's the message I get. I don't like speaking on subjects I'm ignorant of and when I do I usually make a fool out of myself. Let me just relate a few comments that really irked me:

One lady went on about how it's not fair that she has to pay for Chemo while addicts get free help. I don't think it's fair either. Why should anyone have to pay for chemo to stay alive? We have the technology. Why not use it to help mankind instead of bleeding them dry? But that wasn't her point. No, it's just not fair that addicts should get free help. Now imagine if having cancer also automatically gave you a gambling problem and you were broke to boot. Most addicts have NO money. Sure this might be their fault but it's not their fault that they were born with the predisposed genetic disposition towards addiction. One doesn't know they're an addict until they try drugs and by then it's too late.

Never mind that most of the free help is already set into place. We don't go to these fancy million dollar country club rehabs. We go to the same places that people who are appointed by the courts have to go to. People getting out of prison, people ordered by the courts are at the same facilities that those of us who go in on our own are at. The system is already there and it takes forever to get in. It took me over a year to get a spot in the treatment center I went to. Imagine being told it could take 6 months to a year to gain a spot with the chemo doctor. Would you still be proud of paying for that?

Another mentions how addicts deserve to die if they're stupid enough to do drugs. Everyone does stupid stuff. Let's take this line of logic further. If you're stupid enough to jaywalk then you deserve to be hit by a car and die. If you speed then you deserve to have an accident and die. If you wear that pretty dress at night then you deserve to be molested. That's the logic they're using and it's the definition of ignorance. That's not taking responsibility at all even though they want to puff out their chest and pretend it is. That's blaming someone else. It's ignorance, plain and simple.

Really the comments go on and on. My take on everything is that I wouldn't want anyone to be an addict any more than I want people to have cancer. I don't want people to lose their life's savings because they get dementia and have to go into a nursing home. Why are we so proud of a system that sucks us dry through no fault of our own? I wouldn't wish someone dying from lung cancer any more than I'd like to see someone die of addiction. For me personally I wasn't wanting to die. I was self medicating and trying unsuccessfully to treat a mental illness that was frowned upon and still is. I didn't want the world knowing I had a mental illness and so I did all that I could to hide it. Finally I said screw that and got some help. I no longer care who knows how bad my brain is f$%ked up. I'm alive, I'm sober and I've been a productive citizen for nearly 15 years now because I fought so hard to become one. I was also very lucky. I saw a lot of people who didn't make it. I found a lot of dead bodies in those short years and I'm not talking about oh they look like they're sleeping dead but bloated beyond recognition dead. Like someone took a blowtorch to their face dead because it had turned black and puffy dead. I'm talking smells so bad dead that you will never get that smell out of your nose dead. The kind of death that makes the first responder vomit over the railing of the upstairs apartment while I standing there thinking oh this isn't good. If it bothers these professionals this much what will it do to me? I didn't vomit but I never slept again without a sleeping aid and that wasn't even the last one even if it was the worst one. People die, I get that but how many people have to call people's loved one's to let them know that? I'm not military, that's not something most of us civilians have to do. Over and over and over. How many times do you think you could handle doing this and seeing their daughter crying because she'll never see her dad again? I paid a huge price for my mistakes. I have no idea how I managed to stay sober through all of that especially with what I now know to be PTSD thrown on top of it. It's an odd thing. I love my friends but I now also hate them for doing that to me, for doing that to their loved ones. And obviously I hate myself for hating them because that could have been me. Maybe we were all stupid. I know I certainly was but being stupid does NOT mean you deserve to die. We all make mistakes. Have a little empathy is all I'm saying. If you can't then keep it to yourselves because for some of us this shit hurts. I've paid more than my fair share for the treatment I received. I'm still paying the price. And let me tell you it's a hell of a lot more than any bill could ever be.

Still as much as this pisses me off I'd still rather see people be ignorant than for them to have first hand knowledge like I do. I guess ignorance is bliss so there is that. Doesn't make it hurt any less though. I just wish people would stop trying to prove who has the biggest [email protected]# online and show a little empathy is all. I'll start: I love you all, even those of you who made me so angry today. And no I'm not specifically talking to anyone on CR, it wasn't even on this site. I'm just speaking about people in general.

Those who attack others for having a different opinion or for not sharing the same morals as them or opinion of what is morally ok or not (hint morality is subjective)

For example bit ago people were being attacked for looking at loli hentai i stood up for them because i don't see anything wrong with it myself....someone tracked me down and harassed my mother because i was for that stuff being legal and don't find it gross (heck i have looked at it before).

The fact people would go to reaches to harm people for not sharing their view DISGUSTS me.

lets see what else.....people who lie to people and betray them that also.

Experiences of suffering help to figure out what's real so we no longer suffer and no longer accept ignorance of simple explanations that make everything more difficult for all. Your own lack of self awareness is the foundation of addiction. I've gone through it myself, and spent years meditating and self-reflecting until I destroyed everything I thought I was to find the real me, ending my addiction upon recognizing a complete control of myself. If you think you got a mental illness, from my experience, you are struggling with yourself.

No possibility as illness unless we are open to stagnating ourselves from feeding on poor knowledge, snapping out of this is also the way to end all possibility of addiction. The problems of knowing others in society are not your own but they can be if you choose to consider any others. Doing so allows for us to be more but comes with challenges that can become illness. Only you can help yourself unless someone has completely fixed all of this for themselves then they could assist you, but in that only if you are open to their assistance.

Mental illness is the same as the jews belief in wrestling with god. I understand this more accurately as wrestling with your own dissonance in choices.

And you're right, everyone has become an expert in speaking because we embraced babbling enough to convince ourselves of whatever it is we choose to say. If one stops speaking long enough, they'll experience heaven and clarity past all the stuff that has ever been said. But by speaking again after your experience, you've chosen to complexify yourself enough to get involved with others all over again even after recognizing how much suffering you've embraced by doing so in the moment of experiencing heaven.

We can control our dissonance by controlling everything we say and fine tuning our thought to recognize that our thinking is actually speaking without utilizing air. Applying that thought is already speech and never forgetting that will help anyone recognize more in everything they do. This ends all dissonance and unroots the possibilities for any illness. If you remain aware of all your thinking and recognize that you don't have to think linearly like we've been taught to speak in our societies, you will learn much more about yourself and the stuff you've said that opens you up for the struggles you face allowing the possibility of complete confrontation of self to cultivate health in the way you choose forever.

I second this. But people are innocent at heart. They lack empathy because they either have not suffered enough to make them know how important it is, or they have suffered but let it make them toxic, cruel, and apathetic.

Judge people by how they treat those with less than them in any form. The good people will show themselves to you.

Um, warlords. They steal aid intended for the poor, use child soldiers, use women as sex slaves and do suicide bombings. Basically they are Satan-incarnate.

Except actual mirrors. Those are portals to the consciousness of your other selves. Unless the mirror is inside of you, then it is still a mirror. A mirror that reflects the hate of others back upon themselves. Unless you ate the mirror and that is why it is inside of you. In which case it reflects only what is inside of you but there is no light inside of you so you cannot see the reflection of that which is inside of you thus we are all full of darkness and remain ignorant of our inner selves. Even as we struggle day in and day out to eat mirrors in a vain attempt to illuminate our inner being.

Namaste.

If I had to choose only one thing, it would be greed/avarice. Not just in terms of acquisitions, but in terms of emotions as well.
