    Also, vote or die.

    And I purposely left out the middle option, because people who take the middle option contribute nothing to this discussion.




    My opinion: If you really look close enough, almost all people are the same. Which is to say that almost all people are weak, pathetic, and ignorant. Sometimes I just can't stand the company of my fellow human beings.

    I tend to look at the achievements of human kind. I think there is a lot of good to be found in people. The liberal arts is one of the main reason's I did not select yes.

    Inciteful. What are the liberal arts though Swift? What is art? A lot of the artists I have met are just as pathetic, but they are adept at using their art as an expression for their weakness.

    I take great pleasure looking at art. Or anything Human's create. Human creativity is mankind's greatest accomplishment. It make's us unique and is one of the most positive aspects I find in our species.

    Art, Literature, Plays, Music..etc. Hell even playing a good video.

    Do not get me wrong I am a bit of a pessimistic person. I am not a religious person either I do not get awe from sitting in a church.


    I think our species also can be incredibly destructive to say the least.

    Although IMO the good outweighs the bad.

    I usually like people, but there are exceptions.

    At work the assistant manager and I have a joke that I'm going to start a country called "Misanthropia." Working retail and other jobs where I have to deal with people has made me despise people in general. They are ignorant and don't even care because they are lazy. Guess what I voted ;)

    Nothing has happened in my life that would make me misanthropic. I'm sure I won't have such a positive outlook as the years go by. I say the only misanthropic part of me is not giving my trust away like free balloons. I may even be a little bit suspicious. Then again, nobody should give their trust so easily.

    I'm nothing if not an egalitarian, and I like myself, so I suppose I'm pretty fond of humanity in general.
