PostSubject: Just been thinking about stuff [Semi-rant, not really angry ranting]   Tue Dec 11, 2012 6:27 pm

So today after college, one of my friends was talking to me about how society's all screwed up. He wasn't in the best of moods, so I just listened. He made a couple of statements which fazed me:
"Everyone's pretty much the same. Nobody's as different as they think they are."
"Everyone's more or less a hypocrite, whether they like it or not."

It got me thinking. Let's be honest, you hear a lot of "society/people suck" from a lot of people. And most of the people who say this, say it because of what others do (obviously). But then you look at them again and, 9 times out of 10, they'll end up falling into the category of people which they've gone against, simply because almost everyone's self-centred and almost always try to be in the right.

In case you haven't realised, I'm talking about society and people in general.

Some of us are WAY too spiteful nowadays - We don't trust people, we don't care for some, we don't bother with some people, why? Why do we always keep thinking that society is a huge pile of collective shit made up of all the people in the world, but DON'T do a single freaking thing to try and change it? I'll tell you why - we fear some parts of society. Not all of it, we maybe have a liking for one group of people, but some groups are sometimes hostile and unwelcoming to others in general (excluding coworkers, family members, etc.). Those people who've become hateful and gone "fuck you" to the world, the loners and all that? That's from how they were raised up. That isn't them making their own choices. But LOADS of people are brought up and taught to respect and care for other people. Why the fuck do we not most of the time? Fucking really? Is it THAT bad stepping out from the social norms and doing something that's actually right? Because social norms supposedly say that people will help each other... do you ever see people help each other that much? Sure, maybe once or twice, but that's nowhere near enough for it to be a social norm.
Not only is it the fear of society, it's because we usually act how we see others act. One person doesn't bother to help, another person won't. Then another. And another. And for some reason, that's pretty much become the norm - but sometimes you'll get scrutinised for completely the wrong reasons. We get people who manage to completely abuse the moral code for their own, immoral, needs. They're the lowlifes we need to blame, not each other. Yet some people are good at hiding their evil side, so how exactly are we to know who's one of those people? Some people who appear to be bad are actually good people, and vise versa.

It's difficult to be able to properly understand, I have trouble getting my head round it all. Yeah, it'd be nice if we were all trusting of each other and if we all helped out each other, but what if there was that one disease-infested scummy parasite of a human start going and abusing people's trust to their own demise, disregarding others and possibly even looking to harm others for their own fun, how else would we react against people? We'd obviously start getting distrusting, cautious and careful. But then, rarely but more often than I'd hope, you do get some people who start being abusive for their own cause, or spiteful for their own reasons.

I don't hate people, but I dislike society. I think the reason why everyone hates/dislikes it is because there's no direct reasoning as to why society's how it's like today. But then that raises a question for me - 'Why don't people question why society's the way it is today?'. I sometimes do hear why PEOPLE are the way they are today, but not why SOCIETY is. People are individuals. They may collectively make up a society, but that doesn't mean they're all the same. Individually, people can be good people. But when it comes to being collective, we all of the sudden just don't trust people that much, or are skeptical. Is it because we KNOW some people are bad eggs? Is it because we ASSUME that everyone's going to be different?

Reason I'm posting this it's because I want to know what others think on this subject... at least if you care for it. It's not a topic I prefer to think about on my own. After all - we are a society.
