Why do you hate people?

I personally don't view any human as "evil".

Many people are very evil.

What vile, savage or disgusting things do people do?

Really? Child molestation, torture, rape, murder, all sorts of things.

6+ billion people exist on this planet and they're doing just fine.

I would take a wild guess that many of those people on this planet are not "doing just fine."

You seem to hold a very innocent view of the world. Maybe you've lived a sheltered life. There's nothing wrong with that. I would never want my son to grow up and see the horrors that I have.

Anyway, to answer your original question, I used to be a very empathetic person. But that part of me isn't here anymore. I have been burned and betrayed so many times. I have watched people destroy each other and themselves. I see death every day in the name of religion and other silly shit. The people try to tell me what I can and can't do because of their religious beliefs, well, I wish they would just die. The things people will do for a dollar are sick. But that's the world we live in. I don't choose to be like this, it's just a reflection of the society I live in.
