A Melizmatic Moment; “Stupid Shit People On the Internet Say”

So okay;

The internet is a wonderful tool for communicating with other people from all across the globe, exchanging ideas and learning about new things.

The downside is that not everyone who is on the ‘net has something to say that’s actually worth sharing.

Blah blah blah

For instance, the following example has to be one of the most glib, apathetic and idiotic comments that I’ve seen in a while; (and given the intellect-deficient nature of the web these days, that’s really saying something.)

Now that might sound just a bit harsh at first, but the way I see it is if I don’t laugh about it, I’ll surely cry from the sheer immensity of the willful stupidity.

(Please note that avatars and screen names have been concealed to protect the moronic.)

I can only HOPE she's trolling

IMO, attitudes like that one displayed in the screen-grab above is a large part of the reason modern society is so skewed and ineffective; complacent and nonchalant, the person addressing me seems to imply that exploitation is somehow ‘acceptable’ simply because it’s a widespread problem.

Like conscientious individuals have no inherent moral obligation to speak out against the inhumane atrocities that are perpetrated on others.

Well, I just can’t subscribe to such a defeatist way of thinking.
Just because unjust circumstances are not as “bad as they could ever possibly be“, that doesn’t make the aforementioned circumstances any better or more tolerable.

    So true.

    I truly think it just all boils down to the fact that if it doesn’t effect them, they don’t care. Why be against something like that if it isn’t apart of their lives? Most people these days have a small view of the world. If it’s not effecting them or who they care about, it doesn’t matter. Sad, really.
