It’s my opinion that today, we live in an era of antagonism. There are people out there that take pride in being an asshole and make conscious efforts to make life more difficult for their fellow human beings, be it by deliberately being contrarian, intentionally acting in manners that makes a situation difficult for another, or to go on the internet with no purpose but to grief, troll, and pick fights and antagonize others, under the safe veil of anonymity.
I think we live in a time where overall positively-connotative morals are at an all-time low, and because it’s been like such for so long, there’s a manner of acceptance of it in lots of cases. Some choose to laugh it off, others shake their heads at the state of our jaded society. Personally, I think I do a little of both; sometimes it’s funny, but sometimes, I just feel like I have no faith in humanity.
