This is sort of inspired by the thread about the person who claims Twilight invented Wherewolves... Consider all the people that the general public idealizes: Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga, Twilight, et cetera...

So I guess the question is, when you look at all this do you ever feel like giving up on people all together?

EDIT: I don't mean JUST the F'd up media, I'm saying everything...

You do realize it mostly teenagers right?

People have always been like that. And look at those people who did amazing things!

I'm not saying JUST stuff like that, I'm saying in general: Consider the oil spill debacle, the mess that is congress, et cetera (I have to stop using that)...

I resent your Gagaloo reference, she is a very talented woman. Even if you don't like her stuff, surely it's easy enough so see


At any rate, I have given up on people as a result of how I've been treated thus far throughout my life, and from things my parents have recounted to me.


People are, for the most part, predictable.
Going about their business, doing things for their own good, occasionally hurting others for a buzz. Some people pick those people up and look after them. But everyone is at least unpleasant towards someone else at one point in their lives.

Sometimes it's really hard to maintain a positive outlook on humanity in general, but it has to be maintained to gain any sort of success.

Agreed, in both respects. Gaga is amazing, and people are crap.

How you been Reva?

I feel like giving up on the world more when i see that all parents care about is competition of their kids/possessions being better than their "neighbors" and alot of kids are narcissistic and hedonistic.

If I ever give up on the world, it won't be because of the things you mentioned. I don't care about popular culture. Some of it I enjoy, and the rest of it I ignore. Anyone trying to claim that they are forcefully subjected to things like Twilight, Justin Bieber, etc. is just trying to make him/herself out to be a victim of society. I frankly couldn't give a damn about what is popular or unpopular. All the people that bitch about bands, movies, etc. that they don't like are just too insecure about their own tastes.

At least someone understands.... both my views on Gaga and people.

Not to say I don't believe that you can really make the most of life, I'm in a very good mood, honest!

I think the holier-than-thou, mainstream-shunning-for-the-sake-of-it-being-mainstream, elitist attitude that seems to run rampant with people is more of a threat to the well-being of the world than the mainstream examples you cite.

I think its just the evolution of generations. The people I have befriended in my life are simply amazing so I'm not giving up on them. And I'm not giving up on society either. There's still good out there, we just got to adapt, which, over time, becomes natural.
anybody wanna put anything here just let me know
