I’ve never been able to understand humankinds seemingly limitless capacity for cruelty.
We can, through either thoughtless action or neglect, cause enormous pain to our fellows, without even thinking. Some people even seem to enjoy it. Wars, crime, starvation and grinding poverty, we’ve somehow come to view these as normal.
It’s like we take pleasure in torturing one another, as though there were joy to be found in inflicting pain. It saddens me, and I don’t get it.
Please stop screaming, it’s incredibly distracting.
As I was saying, I don’t understand it. But I’m confident that, with experience, I’ll learn.
