De-sensitised

with 8 comments

Is there anything human beings are incapable of becoming desensitised to?

People crap in eachothers mouths for pleasure.
People blow up little children.
People conduct gas chamber genecide, rocket launcher genocide, and burry people alive.
People eat other human beings.
People are quite at east speaking about 2million dead, 40 million dead… war, famine, disease.
People who rape babies get a couple years in prison.
People will torture others including dissolving their limbs in acid, poking holes in every imaginable place, straining, breaking, cutting, and poking in every imaginable way.

And that’s the thing, nothing is unimaginable, nothing too grotesque for human indifference, nothing which doesn’t require just a tiny bit of justification and adjustment. And who provides the justification? Corrupt, inbalanced, and infantile leaders through repetative, naive (or corrupt), and wholey pandering media.

Even our “righteous indignation and shock” has limits, is easily manipulated, and rarely channeled except for political ends.

Reality is insane.

  2. don’t think there is anything humans can become descensitised to. Our abliity to adapt is what keeps us sane even if we are submerged in madness.

  3. but its better than it was – at least we live in a time where largely people DONT agree with these things…there was a time when the concept of ‘caring about other people other than family’ was unheard of.
    Things are getting better

  4. I can’t agree. Back when we didn’t care about people outside of the family, we didn’t slaughter over 100,000,000 people inside 100 years, nor did we drop atomic bombs, nor did we think it was a good idea to have suicide bombings, or alternatively, that blowing up 100 people with a cruise missile launched from a ship 50 miles away was civilised and caring.

  6. I don’t think it is desensitisation, more that we have been brainwashed into tolerance of all alternative lifestyles and repeatedly told that being judgmental is the ultimate sin.

  7. I’m not desensitised, I find all that shit abhorrent as does anyone of a sane mind. The fact that some pond-life are capable of unspeakable evils doesn’t tarnish the human race. A small minority of people have always been intensely fucked up. Read about the ancient paedophile murder cults and what the Roamn’s really did. Genghis Khan’s enemy boiled ten of Genghis’ generals alive for fuck’s sake. The world hasn’t become more evil we just take more notice nowadays.

  8. That’s what I’m getting at.

    Back then I’d be able to chop your penis off and probably eat it. But I’d do it personally.

    Now we are accountable, say, for a bomb exploding and killing a few hundred people but it is civilised because of necessity and distance.

    Personal service with a smile is more sensitive even in it’s complete barbarity.

    Slaughter houses packaging meat versus hunting your own food. That’s what I’m getting at. Sure we don’t like that things have to die, I’m saying reality is weird in that we think it’s still necessary and so ok to deep fry 100,000 people in a nuke if that’s what it takes. We then still think we have a higher civilisation than a man willing to do his part to kill 100 people directly. I say that man is more civilised.
