    Default Dear Misanthropes,

    Why do you insist on believing that humanity is composed of spineless, brainless, grotesque germs who routinely consume their own body weight in excrement?

    Beat me to it.

    Watch a beer commercial. My misanthropy is confirmed and justified.

    I've a kind of casual misanthropic undercurrent in my personality, although somedays I will loathe humanity collectively, while feeling warm enough to individual examples thereof, while other days I will feel warmly enough for humanity collectively, while feeling I loathe individual examples thereof.

    Its just one of those contradictions, I believe a consequence of having a strong enough E to find social intercourse attractive, even if there's no one who can provide it satisfactorily and strong enough TJ functions to allow you to generalise from experience or theory.

    This is me.

    Dear Tater,

    I am projecting the intense emotional venom of my own self-loathing onto the entire human race, in order to draw the potency of the sting to my self esteem by belittling them so ferociously that I end up regarding them as even less than I am wont to regard myself.

    This does not make me truly accept myself or feel at peace, but at least makes me able to face the pain of my existence each day without being overwhelmed with despair at the futility of it all. If I know myself to be an essentially worthless being at core, it is nevertheless a comfort to criticise others until I am assured that they are even less than I.

    Yours,

    Ann Thrope (Miss)

    Dear Misanthropes - what you don't like is seeing your own faces being reflected back to you.

    I can relate to this. Though I tend to lean towards loathing humanity collectively, while feeling warm and compassionate towards individuals. It's more so about human impact on the world and the collective culture of the modern day that gets to me.

    I'm a lot like Lark. There are days where I feel a genuine caring concerned like feeling towards the general population, while strongly despising particular individuals. The next couple days, however, it could change from very much enjoying the company of individuals and being disgusted by everyone else.

    I truly do want to believe in the good of people, but it's difficult to do when you turn on the news and see what you do.
