You make me ashamed of being called a human being!

Have you ever felt that way when talking to someone? Or when watching someone on TV? You sit there in your sofa see a person utter something so stupid that you get ashamed to be even associated as the same species! Ever wonder how some people can be so stupid or jump to conclusions that just doesn’t make sense!

I do! And a lot more often than I like. I, a guy with opinions and ideals, hardly even join in to online conversations because of it. I can read a post that someone has written that is so utterly and totally stupid that my mind can’t even understand what the heck he is talking about. I often hear to boot people that flame a game/guy/girl/show/movie and whatever and have not only completely missed the vital parts but without even knowing anything about it! I read and hear people talking about movies like they have seen it without even having seen it. They just take everything at face value, they don’t investigate or even try to understand.

Why do so many PEOPLE want to be ignorant? I mean it’s not like even half of the “stupid” people really are lacking in brainpower. No it’s more like they just don’t want to know or think for themselves, which is the only reason we even can call ourselves something other than animals. So WHY? Is it really because of the anonymity of the internet that makes us such morons and hateful that we must flame people? Calling each other “n00b” just because someone did a little mistake. Calling each other “morons” or “bigots” at the drop of a word on a message board about a movie. Is it FUN? Is it EXCITING? Is it EASIER?

I have been feeling this for quite a while now. I mean there are a lot of people around who keep on spouting beliefs at me. Such stuff as “Marijuana is bad for you!” or “Let’s trust our government, they know what to do!”. I mean, it’s not even hard to keep up with the latest news and information, or even finding old information, yet people never investigates and try to find the facts, or try to look at the research that have come out and form their own opinion. That is probably the worst trait with “humans”. To not even have an informed opinion of whatever they believe. I mean, if a religious person has looked at the facts/research and their own religions history and litterature and still chooses to believe in their own religion, all the more power to them. It’s such things that get my respect!  But every time I see someone just choosing to flame someone, if I ever had respect of that person that would be lost.

Don’t think that I’m actually talking like everyone is stupid, it’s just that so many of “us” choose to take their own politicians and news at face value and not criticize or even question the politicians own “know-how”. I mean there could easily be people, and probably are, that want to legislate certain things because THEY believe things that could be completely wrong. Yet only a handful of people even listens up and tries to understand that person. Is he STUPID? Does he have an AGENDA? Or is there something else behind it? An example is the US of A’s recent “censuring” of the internet question.

So WHY? If anyone has a good answer for me, won’t you please try to answer this question. And no the answer is not 42.
