Ego of The Apes

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late." -Ralph Waldo Emerson



“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Abraham Lincoln
It’s so easy to feel superior to humankind. Even worse, it’s very satisfying and pleasurable. We bully each other, harm each other, but we do nothing more painful than laugh at each other. Laugh, a very light and happy act, so cruelly used. A savagery no beast has ever reached. We tend to feel more powerful, mocking the weak. We do it for no other reason than that. Is the word “sympathy” still even in your vocabulary? Does it ever cross your mind? I bet some of you are reading this, feeling sorry for how others treat the rest of us, neglecting your own actions. I bet some of you will not even consider being the bad guy. How could you? You’re the almighty, always-right, self-righteous pious, aren’t you?How sad is it? Our hypocrisy. We smash, and crush, and grind, and throw away the bodies of our fellow humans just to feel “happy”. And what on Earth is “happy”? How dare you defile such a nice word? How dare you seek it in things that will break even the devil’s heart?How many of you shared a stupid video just to share a “good” laugh? How many people have you humiliated with that button? How many times did you share a scandal thinking you are better than those people? I’ll tell you what, I know you’re not. You’re worse. You are the reason people believe they’re bad, unworthy or banished. You are sick, sadistic, egotistical, and the reason why people develop social anxiety with your holier-than-thou attitude, and your proud face looking down on people going through hell (especially because of social rejection).You need to step down. Get off your high horse. You must open your eyes to the degradation we all take part in when we laugh at someone. It’s not funny if it hurts. It’s not funny if it’s disrespectful. It’s not funny if it brings you further apart from each other. It’s as disgusting as it can ever be. Inhumanity can only lead to a road of sorrow. A road our generation is so immersed in, I fear we might not even know it.
