Are There Good People Out There?
"Good people are a rarity."
I just came across this assertion. Is it true?
I think it may be true. If so, was it always true? Or is it a myth?
And then there is the definition of "good" in this instance. But will all that up in the air, I do think there are fewer people who adhere to some kind of code. In many cases, this is not really their fault.
I'm talking about people who were never taught to do right or be good. Instead they've been constantly invited and enticed to do wrong and bad. There are probably a good number of people our there who can't even discern good from bad or right from wrong.
I know many will disagree with me and that's fine. What do you think about this?
I wholeheartedly agree. Over the years, I've noticed a massive decline in manners, decency and upstanding morals.
I have noticed an uptick of families perpetuating this behaviour, too - the parents are rude, disrespectful and even criminal, and their children, by and large, grow up with the same attitudes - it's normal for them, it's all they've learned.
Saying that, I've noticed more and more older people becoming less 'good', as if they're 'unlearning' all they grew up with and decided to follow the majority. They know right from wrong and choose to do wrong if it benefits them. Maybe I'm kind of jaded, but yeah, good people really are few and far between.
I agree there are increasingly more "people who were never taught to do right or be good," much of it attributable to the comments above. But I also think many "good people" have become complacent and/or intimidated and are less likely to perform their civic duties. We are losing moral ground because too many good people are doing nothing. I would like to think a tipping point is possible when a critical mass can see it, but I don't know how much more out of whack things can get before it's irreparable.
I see it as a lack of love. If you feel love in your heart you instinctively feel the urge to do good, but when you don't, everything is tinged with hate, comes out as destructiveness. Too many people don't believe in the existence of love, you could also say life... to me they are the same force. There's a reason, they never encountered it, why should they know. Then there is death, we are fixated on death yet refuse to acknowledge its presence. When I interact with anyone or anything I try to question, is the source of this life or death? I try to focus on life/love but I acknowledge my own struggle with these forces and that of others. I wonder if any other Pluto people on here operate like this?
At the current time, everything presented is dark and twisted. Love is conditional, shallow, and fleeting. Not worth wasting your time one. No one can be trusted.
Media is very different than when I was young. I'm acutely aware of this because my husband and I watched various shows when we were together as teenagers.
No one welcomed us to their vagina.
It's gross. Can you see the symbolism?
This stuff is horrifying. Mortifying.
As a woman, I guess you're a vagina host. You get to invite people in?
You cannot be inundated with stuff like this, elaborately produced, hitting all your senses and not be changed... well, ruined. No one wants to think they are brainwashed but how can you watch stuff like this an not be?
It used to be a problem - I felt men were dating my hair and an illusion of who I was. Today, they'd just be visiting my vagina. Great!
It's hard to believe it could get worse but I'm sure it can and it will. Further, it's like the only pot on the stove so we eat from it, poison.
I believe the power that use to belong to the family, to teach and shape children, has been given to the government, the schools and entertainment removed link Boundaries has become a bad word. Having boundaries for behavior and treating others and yourself with respect and decency was taught in the family. The family unit is now under attack. The family unit (for the most part) had the child's best interest in mind, whereas, these other entities do not. They simply want a population that has no boundaries or self-respect, it makes the population easier to control, easier to profit from and easier to manipulate.
