    Yes, a serious, deep thread. I wonder why it's in the Fluff Zone.

    You know, I hadn't even noticed that, Jae Rae. I'll move it somewhere more appropriate.

    On an intellectual level, Athenian, I am very curious as to which specific values you find so disgusting, and also, what values you have that you think we might be better off adhering to?

    Very well, then. The values I am disgusted by are:

    1. Courage - How pathetic do you have to be to have courage? It's just stupid to take risks so that people will admire that, or out of some screwed up sense that you owe people something. It is so pathetic and disgusting to need like that, and to do something so absurd, meaningless, and predictable to fulfill it. You should always flee danger unless it corners you, and then do everything you can against it no matter how underhanded. It's foolish to be bound by something as absurd as a sense of courage.

    2. Trust - This basically the same as saying, "let people screw you over." If you trust people, they will screw you over. It's not even a matter of "if," but "when." They would be foolish not to do so if they could get away with it, in fact. You should always have a back-up plan in case they betray you, so that they can't do what ever they want with you. The easiest is to make sure that you never trust anyone unless you have something to use against them if they betray you. That will deter them. There is no trust, it's only an idea used to trick people. It doesn't do anything.

    3. Acceptance, and even building upon the disgusting nature of things as they are, accepting it as valid, even embracing it - This is the most horrifying of all. You look on all this, seeing how disgusting and miserable it is, and you dare to align yourself with that awfulness, praise it as positive regardless of it's voidness of everything that is good or right, you just praise the arbitrary chaotic mess, and speak of it's "necessity," completely ignoring everything wrong with it. You demand people to live in it, you even implore them to love it as you do.

    What I can't believe is that people are so pathetic, that they admire people who behave according to such.

    Well, go ahead then. But I can't agree to your values. I cannot. I will not.

    I hate you all, by the way. Your values disgust me.

    Athenian, please understand:

    If you dislike the dark, become the light.


    To accomplish this, you must first find it in others.

    I actually laughed out loud when I read this. Good attempt at gaining sympathy. A bit in your face but still a decent try.

    It feels good to trust and to accept and to be at peace with your environment. It is not an act of submission.

    People will veer off the path that you have set for them in your mind, and that is natural. They are not extensions of you.
