The Real You........Step Forward Please.........Explain.........I dare You.
After reading a local incident recently, of people that wrote horrible posts on a persons Facebook memorial.
These post, devastate the deceased family and friend. Destroying what was supposed to be a positive reminder of someone’s life. These comments upset to the point, where they had to shut down the page.
What if this happened to them. Those that posted negative comments……. What if one of their family had died and was being attacked. Would that make them think, before they posted a nasty comment on another Facebook page. Or are they incapable of discerning the difference.

Its not just on Facebook, its everywhere……...

Why would someone act this way?
Their up bringing, some event in their adult life that did this? Or are some just born this way? Maybe they simply think they can get away with this because they are anonymous, sat at a computer behind a screen, unseen.


Have we as humans become so insensitive to others? Do some of us not feel anything anymore. Except maybe anger and hatred .

Are you one of these people that does not consider the feelings of others when you post?

Are you woman/man enough to look at yourself and ask why am I doing this?

It's anger at each other for letting the world turn out the way it has thus far. Self loathing hatred forms when one realizes just how stupid his fellow man can be. Because inside we all know when we look at someone else and judge them we are really only judging ourselves.

I often think of this when I hear of or see random acts of violence, or bullying like you mentioned.

I just don't understand why people do the things they do to others. It really boggles my mind. Especially random acts of violence, when someone is killed for basically no reason. That makes me very angry even.

Anyway, I have no answer for you as to why people do those things, I too am curious...

snippet:

Researchers reviewing surveys of empathy found that they have lost almost 40 per cent of the ability since the 1980s.
The study, presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science, analysed a number of surveys involving almost 14,000 college students over the last 30 years.

"We found the biggest drop in empathy after the year 2000," said Sara Konrath, a researcher at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research.
"College kids today are about 40 per cent lower in empathy than their counterparts of 20 or 30 years ago, as measured by standard tests of this personality trait."

Nope. It's embedded in the human condition. It'll never change. Especially if humans try to rule over other humans. It's a cycle...a repetitive cycle.

The bible says that in the last days the love of many would wax cold. People are becoming numb to the emotion. They allow hate and selfishness to rule in their hearts. These are prophetic days we live in. I'm shocked because I could never have imagined it would be this bad. Hate has exploded worldwide. Each of us have a responsibility for the words we speak and actions we take. We will all be held accountable for the evil we allow in our hearts. It's a choice we make. Choose wisely people, and search for God rather than being a destructive force.

What is your definition of "evolve"? IMO that term is conjured or fabricated as a means of control, like the term "fairness". There are no real absolutes in things like "fairness" the world is not a fair place at all. Justice is perverted, fairness is used only in the context to get people who desire equity and fairness to become complacent at the hope fairness will be worked out collectively.

However, if you realize that we are all fallen in our natural state of being, you can begin a healing process in terms of hope, real hope, for salvation to be realized. We all need salvation as this world is fallen we are fallen and it just gets worse and worse. Its not getting any better for those who do not admit we are a fallen species, flawed in need of redemption.

With cell phone texting, and internet chats, it is difficult if not impossible to get the reaction of any comment. If you cannot see a reaction when communicating, then you cannot have empathy because the reaction is not expected.

This is why kids breakup texting instead of face to face. They dont want to see the reaction.

I can't help but think there is something more to it than just video games and violent media... 2 and 2 ain't equalling 4 here.
