Why I am a misanthropist – an example.

•May 19, 2017 • Leave a Comment

So we are survivors of infant loss, more specifically still birth.  And in surviving we sought support and help.  And we have found some.

But we have also come across many folks who are desparate to expose the true uglyness of humanity and humans.

There are people, who have gone through this (and that may be the worst part of it) who find and receive the free support.  Who then turn around, copy the format and charge the kind of premium that qualified professionals charge.
Now bear in mind here, we are talking about using free services, putting a little very effort in, none of it backed by education.

It is not just recompensation for cost, it goes way beyond that.  This is profiteering from the pain and grief of others.  Others who are desparate for help, and unable to see what is happening.

Then there are those do-gooders who, while they may mean well, say some of the most egregious things.

“God must have needed another angel.”

What?!?!  are you fucking kiding?  Can your all powerful creator of the cosmos not create his own angels without taking the lives of innocents?

“God has a better plan for them.”

Tell me again, just what plan could have been better than leaving the child with loving parents?  And all those kids born into horrifying situations unwanted and mistreated?  Did they not figure into the plans of this all knowing supposedly all good deity?

And so it goes on, platitudes and thoughtless comments.  From folks who simply cannot grasp that not everyone buys into their imaginary friend and his fantasy story.

Another example of reasoning behind misanthropy ….  smokers.  This seems especially prevalent in north america. and ties in to several issues.  Most of these revolve around pollution.  Be it pollution of the air with the, frankly, disgusting smoke, all the worse when it actually causes medical harm.
This idea is compounded when all summer the house you live in is made unlivable by neighbours who smoke front and back, breathing their bad habit into their neighbours windows without a care in the world.
or the garbage, cigarette butts left anywhere they can be flicked.  This is something that seems to be at least Ontario wide.
And from talking with others, I think I would say, Canadians, your garbage habits are fucking disgusting.  None of you give a single stuff and it’s frankly despicable.  You complain about the air and water pollution of your neighbours to the south, yet you couldn’t be arsed to put your garbage in a bin?  Fuck your hypocracy.

Urrrrgh, just a snippit into the logistics of my misanthropy, even I cannot stand to dwell too long on this …  Walrus out!

Sacrifices have to be made on the International Space Station, and one of them is having to have your PB&J sandwiches on a tortilla. Oy!

Yes, this is the nation that the UN put on both it’s human rights and women’s rights councils. It’s a nation where, according to many sources (I quote the Independent), a man has been sentences to death not for blaphemy—for impugning Mohamed or Islam—but for apostasy: renouncing Islam. He’s going to die because he’s an […]

So I looked at the movies currently in the cinema to see if it would be worth a dinner and movie deal.

My god, what the fuck has happened to the art of storytelling?!?!  watching a fucking custody battle passes for a movie?!?!

What the actual fuck people?  Most of TV has devolved into ‘reality’ tv shows that have neither reality, nor storyline.  And now movies are completely giving up on story too.

 

Thankyou media industry, for turning me into the crotchety bitchy complaint fest of an old fart that I would complain about 20 years ago.  I hate you all.

Some thoughts worth remembering.

Originally posted on Boxx Banter: “It gets worse before it gets better.” Those were the words the pastor offered to a newly bereaved couple whose daughter had died unexpectedly. And you should know that he is right. Bereaved parents are stunned when four months, six month, nine months down the road they find their grief…

After my denunciation by chiropractors and their advocates over the last few days—opprobrium that I welcome—Reader Pliny the in Between, whose website is The Far Corner Cafe, put together a series of drawings showing how spinal manipulation, such as that practiced by chiropractors, could produce a stroke. This, for instance, is what a real doctor, Orac, thinks […]
