Ok, perhaps the topic is a bit too broad. However, seeing as how I'm currently agitated by an asshole, I just wondered what is it that they get out of being so spiteful to others?
Is it a sense of accomplishment?
Do they feel that by making someone else angry or upset, they have some how succeed?
I like for people to have differing viewpoints, but I don't like people who just want to argue and then make it personal instead of discussing what they originally disagreed about.
Maybe it is just me. I just don't have the patience for people who don't understand civilized conversation. I definitely do not need to subject myself to any cyber-bully who feels that they are somehow endowed with more credibility than me... for any reason at all. We all have valid opinions and do not need any self-proclaimed "authorities" to help us out. Everyone here is on a different path, but this moment and this nexus is a crossing point for many of us. I would like to look upon this as a positive moment, and not just another example of something I am trying desperately to disprove, that by and large, people fucking suck!
