So sick of the worlds petty problems

All of that is hard, so blame whoever else and focus on something immediate.

Fixing the world is scary and would require sacrifice and trust.

I like this response.

But honestly though, is killing the planet really that big of an issue too? I mean, if we're all dead eventually due to an uninhabitable planet, who is alive to care? Sure we can be more green, humans are extremely wasteful. Petty problems though, I think it would depend on who you talk to.
"Easier said than done." Yes, but what else are you going to do about it?

You can, though. There are numerous political ideologies that don't really involve democracy.
In fact we all live in one right now. How else would our governments ever accomplish anything? Any of you actually believe your "votes" matter to national agencies? Sorry to tell you but that is a bit naive. The governments have proven time and time again that they do whatever they want to do, with or without the people's permission.

Maybe that is why I have no friends. I rarely stop to care what people think about what I have to say.

Not that I feel bad about it, though. I'm fine with how things are. I don't need friends, but I do need my beliefs.

I agree. I've been thinking of this for a looong time now. You log on to facebook, or youtube, or anywhere on the internet that isn't dedicated to a certain topic and all you hear is "gender pronouns" that and "racism" this. And I'm NOT necessarily saying that these aren't legitimate issues or things society shouldn't discuss. But you CAN'T avoid them now, and if you choose to prioritise different things in your life, fight different fights, then you're a privileged asshole and part of the problem. Well if you honestly believe that... I don't see YOU looking at human rights abuses, actual "patriarchies" that are oppressive towards women in certain parts of the world and climate change. But sure, you're such a damn hero for constantly bringing up "micro-aggressions" and white male privilege in the wests...

Well, I don't do selphies, I don't have an account on FB.

I think they deleted half of the stuff I had there and I won't be concerned on the things PPL shared. For instance, a couple of times I criticized my own daughter, and I noticed her anger and my Ex wife didn't back up what said supprting my concerns: If she showed how sexy she is, If she showed where she lives, she could be seized, raped or lured into an unsafe relationship... But my views aren't ppl thoughts and I'm detached enough from troublemakes. 😞
