As a whole, humans have a great talent for not facing the things they know in their guts they’re not ready to know or see or understand. We can be extremely willfully obtuse when we want to be, and it’s probably one of the things that keeps us sane.
These 15 people are ready to burst some bubbles, though, by sharing things that humans shouldn’t try to dig into deeper, because we’re for sure better off clueless.
15. An easier life.
One of the five truths: we will grow old, we will get sick, we will die, all we know and love will change and all we can possess are our own actions. Any given day one of these will zing you more.
When we come to accept them, we simply live an easier life.
14. Can’t we all just get along?
It is reasonable to talk instead of fight.
As an extension of this: apes together strong.
13. Just say no.
There was no logical reason for Scrubs Season 9.
I just never watched Season 9 and so now I always talk about great the ending of Scrubs was. Season 8 really ended perfectly.
12. le gasp!
Konami isn’t making a new Silent Hill.
11. In different degrees.
That fear influences every decision that humans make.
10. They’ll be happier.
The human race will be extinct someday, and other plants and animals will flourish on earth long after we’re gone.
9. And no, they don’t know us.
We’re not killing the world, we’re killing ourselves. The world will go on. Life will go on.
Actually humanity is overdue to hear that.
8. We cannot live here forever.
We are going to have to learn how to deal with and accept our differences, because unless we can work together to pool our intellectual resources humanity is doomed to die on this planet either in the near future, or in the far future.
We cannot live here forever, especially considering how badly we’ve treated the place.
7. Shakes me to my core.
People don’t want democracy they want a dictator they agree with.
The only downfall to democracy is that it gives an equal voice to anyone no matter how unreasonable or traitorous. If everyone was participating in good-faith with only the good of the nation and EVERYONE in it, it would 100% be the best.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where people would cut off both their legs if it means their ‘enemies’ lose a single leg.
6. I needed to hear this.
It’s normal for humans to be lazy. We didn’t evolve to be perfectly efficient hive insects.
To piggy back on your point: all personality traits served a logical purpose for survival. Laziness is huge for energy conservation when there’s scarcity. It can also inspire the creativity to make more efficient systems that rely less on people having to do something.
We’d probably never have civilization if some group of bums didn’t try to make their workload smaller through division of labor!
5. You can’t make people change.
No matter how much you push people you can’t make them change, you can only change yourself and hope to lead people to change.
It’s like trying to force water to boil by vigorously shaking it thinking the molecules are moving enough to turn to gas, when you could just as easily build a fire to add a steady supply of heat
4. There are no absolutes.
Being an atheist doesn’t make you any smarter, and being religious doesn’t mean you’re a good person.
The customer is not always right.
People like to think this is in reference to the individual because that feeds into their story of them being special in some way. What it really means is that on an economic scale the customer, the collective group with purchasing power, is always right, and a business that tries to sell the customer something they don’t want will fail.
If the buyers market says they want peaches instead of plums you sell them peaches. To try to sell them plums would be foolish, you as a business can’t possibly know what is best for the customer, even if you think you do. It’s the whole bring a horse to water scenario.
If a product isn’t selling well you stop selling it, there is no demand for it, if you can’t keep an item on the shelf a you order more of it, you do what the customer is telling you they want you to do instead of what you yourself think should be done.
2. As a whole.
You know all those movies where we battle the evil aliens? We’ll be those evil aliens. We’re extremely selfish and have no respect for other life.
1. I’m not listening…
COVID-19 is not gonna go away in the near future.
COVID19 will never go away because it’s now going to be endemic like with the seasonal flus and common cold. But the high death and ICU counts, mask wearing mandates and lockdowns won’t be indefinite. I’m guessing another year at this point overall (though much sooner for places with high vaccination rates).
Yeah, there’s just no point to knowing too much for most people, right?
