    I think that the society we live is very much social darwinistic and cruel and what is social Darwinism if not a form of oppression of the weak or poor members of society?

    Capitalism in itself is an oppressive socioeconomic system.

    The fact is that people are very self-centered and selfish nowadays, thinking only about themselves and their own wellbeing.

    Many people, including me are still living in extreme poverty, having nothing to eat and not even a comfortable home to sleep in and that's entirely because of Capitalism.

    I don't even know where my next meal will come from and in a couple of months I could end up homeless or even in jail because I shoplifted and I all because my physical situation does not allow me to get myself out of poverty and homelessness.

    Sometimes I wonder why my mom didn’t swallow me. Or why of all the sperm, it was mine that reached the egg. Life tells me I’m a loser. Women tell me I’m not worth a damn. So why didn’t I lose the raсe to the egg? I should have been just swallowed.

    The worst thing you can do is believe that. Prove life wrong. Stop bitching and start thinking.

    Holy zombie thread Batman!
    That's mainly because the people you hang around with are like you. Most people aren't like that.
    That's primarly because of you.
    If you want to go to jail, by all means shoplift. That way you'll be able to complain more.
    No, you tell yourself that.

    No. Survival of the fittest works when resources are limited.
    Social interaction is not a limited resource.
    Other people having a rich social life does not deprive you of having as rich a social life as you desire.

    The only limit on the richness of your social life is your attitude.

    Mod Hat — Revival splinter

    Sixteen years is a long time for a dormant thread, so we'll splinter out our latter-day revival. The original thread, running from November, 2003, to January, 2004, remains available for viewing: [click here].
