Ahh yes.
Go on. Fly like the wind little Moralfags. May the bloated and maggot widden wings of your bandwagon carry you far and wide, onto the elysium of a pretend moral high ground.

But when everything comes down to it, you're no better than me and those like me, who make jokes and laugh at this suffering, pain and gore. There are, in truth, no fundamental distinction.

You only pretend to care, because it allows you to look down upon others. You get to gaze down upon me and my fellows with scorn, because we laugh. You get to look down upon the vicitms because they suffer and die. And you can sit and think to yourself "My my. I'm a morally apropriate and privilliged individual.".

I do not mind helping you out in this fashion. Some of us yet needs to realise that this false sense of satisfaction for what it is, and i dont mind keeping you souring untill you realise it.

While your infantile zeal might otherwise sicken me, i'm amused by your bloated ego, and self-serving exploitation of the massacred victims.

I've procrastinated for long enough now. Keep me entertained, and i shall keep you on your moral pedestal. Always.

Cheers ~ Krobeles

You know generalizing never really helps prove anything and just makes you look like a gigantic asshole.

certainly regurgitating pointless juvenile insults such as "gigantic asshole", helps wonders though, dosen't it?

Never said you were one, just saying it makes you look like one. Now you are an extremely angry individual and I will leave you to go complain about the world somewhere else.

Pro tip. Don't use your fancy vocabulary and semantics to argue a point, especially one as stupid as yours. It doesn't impress anyone and you sound like a douche.

"i'm amused by your bloated ego"

Really, dude? Really? You're amused by others' bloated egos? You sound like my brother, and he's a real douchecanoe.

All you're attempting to do is validate yourself by making us who care appear fake. You can't even bare to accept yourself so you try and tell us we're the ones pretending. The truth is you're a disgusting human being and I am sorry the world has bent you in such a way. I'll be praying for you tonight.

The guys below me pretty much pointed out everything I have to say, so, yeah. All I'll add is doesn't it seem a little sad that you took the time to say that only to make yourself look like an extreme prick. You're right, though. Those who look upon the tragedy with sadness and those who laugh aren't that different, but it's in different ways than you imagined. They are both ways to deal with the tragedy; one side by accepting the humanity with grief, and the other by dehumanizing it so as to avoid the tragedy. Neither side is better than the other, and both versions work. The only one feeling superior here is your pansy ass. Whoops, looks like I did have something to say.

You're no better than the straw man you set up. You make as if you're of the select few smart enough to see what's really going on. You portray yourself as a sort of rebel, cast against a force that does not exist.    
   
So go ahead and pretend you're made of better stuff than the "bandwagon". You're just another conceited soul, and no one really cares.

I never pretended to be a rebel anymore so than you pretend to be a reble by disagreeing with me. Neither did i at any point say i were part of some enlightened minor. I realise that debates like these are essentially made up of two major parties, and one very small additional one.

There are those who cry, those who laugh, and those who do neither and simply do not care. I'm part of the party who laughs. Dosen't mean we're some fringe minority or that we're rebels. It simply means that i am a member of a particular way of veiwing this event, and that i believe the view is utterly stupid and vain.

Weather or not i'm made of better stuff, is slightly subjective, as there should be many factors aside from just this that plays into the "better stuff"-equation.
I will say, however, that since apathy and humor are the view that most will adopt at one point in their life time, when they realise that caring for every worthless insect, is simply not worth it, i can reasonably argue that i'm at a later stage of my own social and personal evolution. Therefore, i believe i'm made of "better stuff" with regards to this particular topic.

A bunch of people seemed to care enough to reply, yourself amongst them. I'de say you either have literally nothing better to be doing, quite a sad factor in itself, or you simply care enough to reply. I'm gonna assume the last one of those, as having nothing better to do than this, is quite impossible...

Nobody truly cares. The extent of my infatuation stems from the interest I have in debating, particularly on the internet. Yes, it's a waste of time, and I don't really know why it interests me. I prefer to just accept it as it helps me improve my articulation and examine my own beliefs.

Apathy is not some enlightened state of being. On the flip side, a bleeding heart is no better. If you truly feel nothing for the people involved in this incidents, I'd suggest getting some sort of help.

But I think the more likely case is that you do feel some sort of compassion for people. The humor is likely fabricated to a degree, whether it's to be antagonistic, part of some internet persona, or another motive I am unaware of.

OK, i was tired and pissy yesterday, so i guess i apologise for the i pressented things.
That said, i still hold the opinions i expressed. Lot of school work these days, kept me up untill ******* 3....

Anyway, lemme ask you something. When you're watching a movie, and a character dies, do you feel anything?
Sure, you may get some sort of "Hey! This game is amazing, it'll actually kill its own important characters!", i dont really think you feel sadness.
Thats what these are to me. Even less so actually. I would have atleast something invested into a fictional character, as i've seen their growth throughout the game/movie, but i never even saw these people in my life. Never saw them, never heard them, and their life never impacted me in the slightest.

Even if America goes to war against North Korea over this (far out theory, i know. Its an eksample not something i believe will happen tomorrow...) and both sides become devastated nucklear wastelands. Even That would only impact me slightly. I would still go to school, and attend parties but the lives of several million Amerikans dosen't really impact me much.
I'de probably not joke about that though. Nucklear holocausts are srs bsns, and i'de probably be scared of it escalating.

But thats really my point. If 100.000.000 Amerikans died in the flash of an atomic bomb, i'de probably notice sure, but my life wouldn't really be impacted.
I have nothing personal invested these Americans (I know like, 1 American on a personal level.). Sure, i'de probably be worried about the economy and all that, but i wouldn't care about the lost lives, because to me, they never lived in the first place.

I fully realise that they had friends and family who cared for them, but i'm just not one of those people.
To be compleatly honest, i dont know if i believe that there are people who actually care, or if its all fabricated. Probably some do care, but its the minority, i think.

Hey now, don't forget those of us who care, but do not cry or make social media updates about it. Just because someone cares, doesn't mean they're on a bandwagon. That's like saying people who want to find a cure for any form of cancer is just on the bandwagon.
Yes, unfortunately there are those who treat it as a fad, but to say everyone does is down right stupid. It sort of appears you live in a very black and white world.

I'd also like to point out that people, like myself, may reply because they do have better stuff to be doing, but they're procrastinating.

Love when people talk like an all mighty God in the comment section.    
   
You were REAL menacing! REALLY good points! DEFINITELY worth your time writing that.

Hmm, see, this is funny, because i actually didn't try to sound menacing. I tried to sound flamboyant and smug, conveying my points useing words that painted the picture of a smug, self absorbed and apathetic provocateur.

But hey! You wouldn't have told me that i failed in being menacing if you didn't think that was what i tried to do, and you wouldn't think that unless you felt, even so slightly, intimidated. So thanks for pointing that out.

I agree. Some people pretend to care for a self morale boost. But there are people who sincerely care and think of the Boston bombing as a tragic event rather than a topical event of discussion (and jokes).

Or some of us actually like, are good people and care.   
   
You know, not everyone besides you and your small circle of the "trusted" are intelligible. There are others who know how to manner themselves and have loving natures overall.   
   
Either something as of right now is bothering you, or you're just being hyper critical of people like a lot of others are. Don't feel so hateful, have some hope for Christ's sake.

"Good" is a worthless word in this context. It holds only the meaning and substance the user imbues it with.
For you, "Good" refers to yourself and those like you.
For me, "Good" resers to me and those like me.

Caring for the lives of people you never met, are like caring for characters in a video game or movie. Their just pixles. Imaginary creations existing only for as long as you wish them to, and their deaths should hold no actual emotional impact upon your life.
That is, unless you view their deaths as a chance for the people in power to justify more horrendous regulations and wars that is.

I wont claim that i am not bothered by outside influences right now, but these things always annoy me to some extend. Its like watching a collective of grown-ups crying over a movie. Its pathetic.

I am not apathetic because i hate the people who died, and i dont laugh because i hate them. I laugh because the jokes that're made are entertaining.

User avatar #89 to #77 - fishtacos (04/18/2013) [-]
Dude, you're making about as much sense as Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Your values of human lives aren't the same as everyone else. Other people actually think of the dead/wounded as actual people. Stop acting like some omniscient asshole, you don't know **** about tragedy. I bet you're some sheltered kid whose never lost anything more than your first goldfish. Learn what it feels like to actually lose someone you love, THEN maybe you'll have some perspective for the lives lost in Boston, and in every other terrible tragedy worldwide.

Which side are you ******* on? Oh my god, cut the philosophical ******** and just state your points.

And you claiming to be of higher value than others, JUST because you are you, makes you no better than those you put down. How do you know what kind of person I am by a measly few sentences? How do I know you are what you claim to be? "Good?" What is that to you? And what makes you think I am not like you?
