    Oh, a little of both with just a sou sans of anonymity thrown in.

    I just read about evil in “The Week”, this dude that studies evil says basically that evil is the absence of imaginative sympathy for people. That seems to explain it

    You know all that stuff their religion says to do?

    They’d rather do the opposite.

    No, Carmen, it’s because taking children away from their parents and putting them in cages strengthens the deterrent. The worse they’re treated, the better the deterrent.

    They don’t understand that when you fight fear & hate with fear & hate then fear & hate win. Turn not to the dark side.

    It makes them feel powerful and combats their own deep sense of inadequacy.

    Making people do what they don’t want to do demonstrates that you have power over them.

    Most are mean because they have turned away from thier own dignity, the truth and faith in God. Most are so blinded by their rage that they can do nothing else but be consumed by it. They then lose their ability to see reality and lash out at others due to their blindness. They see their desires as paramount, even when those desires may not be based in reality, what is best for the common good and themselves, Their self-idolatry leads them to see as any with which they disagree as lesser than human and unworthy of compassion.

    A simple analysis on why many are “mean”.

    Let’s take a poll, there are a small group that comment here every day that never have a nice or positive comment on anything. To those , I ask why do you feel a need to be mean everyday? The replays should speak for themselves.

    It’s easier to find mean things to say than try to find a positive comment. Most people want to make others as miserable as they are.

    People are so mean because they have been given a platform from which they can be mean without fear of repercussion.

    Criticism and offering counterarguments are not necessarily being mean.

    Mean people live sad and lonely lives. They’ve been hurt, so they lash out. There was an Arlo and Janis comic a while back where Arlo came up and hugged Janis from behind. A number of us commented on how we do that to our wives as well. A regular on these pages commented that it must be nice to have such a good relationship. Yes, yes it is.

    This may sound trite, but it’s true. If you want to be liked, you have to be likable. If you want to be loved, you have to be lovable. If you are mean and drive people away, don’t be surprised if you look around one day and find everyone is gone.

    I’m guessing that all them people marching in Hong Kong and Moscow must be really mean, just like them revolutionists who stirred up so much anger at England.

    They can hide behind the internet.
