I hold a burning misanthropy in my heart that burns hotter than the hottest infernos of Hell. I’m not violent, so my hatred is not the kind which would invoke physical action of any kind, but I can’t say that I don’t wish for the worst for people.
I feel that if my country didn’t consistently double down on its brisk pace into the abyss of the new dark ages year after year, my outlook on life and humanity might be a little brighter. But it seems that evil and stupidity outbreeds goodness and intelligence in these ages of modernity and egalitarianism. Makes perfect sense when you realize how much modernity subverts the work of natural selection.
Why is it that good and pure things, which are rare and far between to begin with, always seem to die in infancy, and either get replaced by, or overhauled into, vacuous nonsense? Does the entropy principle from physics apply to human culture and societies as well? I guess it does.
Anyway, once upon a time I was naive and believed that things could be done to restore what once was, but with maturity and knowledge comes the understanding that history is a blueprint of the future. As Robert Frost wrote, “nothing gold can stay”. I’m not fighting the fight anymore. I’ve lost my soul, and with it my concern for what happens to this world.
