Why are so many people like this? What is remotely okay about literally tearing the rest of the world down to make yourself feel better?
I’m struggling. I’m anxious and alienated, and I feel like I don’t belong in this world. But I still didn’t vote for Trump. You know why? Because I don’t want the rest of the country or the world to be destroyed. Because unlike the people mentioned in this article, I realize that other people have the right not to suffer. Because I’m not an utterly selfish, heartless monster.
Why is basic human empathy such an alien concept to so many people?
