Maybe we can all work together to persuade her that things are not as bad as she believes. Let us view the positive side for a moment. We are among friends here at HAF. I will go out a limb here and claim that we actually care about one another. Review the outpouring compassion for Dave and Randy for example. This is a mean old world that is full of cruelty, treachery, greed, and dishonesty. That I acknowledge. But take a look at some of our forum's many photo submissions. Can we not find beauty and hope in some of the marvelous photos from our members. There is beauty and hope everywhere if we will only choose to see it. We are, as far as I can tell, sufficiently nourished with food, have a shelter to allow us to sleep in some degree of comfort, and we have other people who truly care for, even love us. Sadly, some of us may not have the good fortune to recognize those gifts. To live a reasonably happy and tranquil existence, you must believe that your cup is at least half full. These notes may be mere pablum for some people. I do care for them and wish for them to join me in gratitude for whatever blessings that we still have.

Quote from: TheFightSong on February 12, 2022, 03:56:38 PMPeople praising "Gone with the Wind" insults the black community. The reason why "Gone with the Wind" was successful came from people not having much options to choose from in movie theatres decades ago. America's economy wasn't the best when "Gone with the Wind" got released publicly in movie theatres. If you really analyze "Gone with the Wind", it is a mediocre soap opera that dehumanizes black characters by giving this sentiment towards slavery as if slaves want to be enslaved. Scarlett O'Hara was an evil opportunist who selfishly ruined people's lives even after her daughter died. Rhett Butler was a cut-throat sociopath or borderline sociopath that successfully manipulated people like pawns for his selfish agenda. His weakness was Scarlett O'Hara and his daughter Bonnie. Bonnie died and Scarlett O'Hara remained the evil opportunist. Meanwhile, Mammy somehow acts all supportive to these vile characters. Black characters continue acting supportive to white characters regardless of these white characters' moral compasses or lack thereof usually in mainstream media. It's why I have no hope for humanity. And it's why I have to look harder when finding entertainment.

Quote from: TheFightSong on February 12, 2022, 03:56:38 PMUntil things change, I see humanity as a plague where decency is harder to find than ugliness, greed, dishonesty, war, death, poverty, misery, sweatshops, global warming, mental illnesses, sociopathy, psychopathy, sadism, sexual abuse, misogyny, misandry, etc. I don't want beauty if it comes from anorexia, eating disorders, plastic surgery contributing to global warming, pain, suffering, soul-selling, etc.
