It’s amusing how things turn out to happen, first you have strange experiences, then you start to ponder, and do some experiments, and then… you find something, and it changes you.
But this is not what I wanted to talk about here, it’s… people.
Every now and then you get to talk to people, normally, this is a conversation where you share your common interests, pursuits, mundane things perharps, normal interactions, and then, there are the other conversations, there’s when you can’t stop wondering what’s wrong with people, that is arguing, you see, sometimes we disagree, and it is not just a disagreement, it is a game, a competition of egos, trying to show off and see who has the bigger ego, no matter wheter you wish to give up or not on the topic, they have to “win” they have to make it clear, and you, sometimes, can fall into this trap too, you feel you have to “win” to “crush your enemy”, wich is just another person, with a different point of view, the more you get into the game, the more vicious it gets, you feel an urge to deprive them of something, perharps their dignity, perharps their honor, make them feel dumb (or make your ego bigger by thinking you’re making them feel dumb), it starts with witty remarks, jokes, but if you follow this game long enough, you will notice how you get more and more vicious, relentless, you have to deal damage or you aren’t satisfied; this is especially true on the internet, where everybody thinks he or she is anonymous, what starts as a polite ask/answer intercourse, ends up being a flamewar at best.
This is an epidemic on our days, since this seems to affect most people, we make people unhappy, and bring ourselves unhappyness aswell. I’m not talking about trolling, we all know trolling happens, I’m talking about normal social interactions becoming trolling day after day. So stop it people.
It is not a game, if you want a game, buy a game, create one if you do not wish to spend the money in a game, and play with it. Because that’s what games are for, people aren’t meant for your personal amusement, and this is one of the reasons why we have nowadays so poor psy-health. No they aren’t weak, you are, you are the one who has a hunger to feed your ego, in fact you are addicted, so badly that you crave it, and if you don’t get it, you feel unhappy, and you can get very easily depressed at best, is that what you want in your life?
I most certainly don’t, and trust me, I was a top tier troll.
