The price to pay for all this online righteousness
Imgur comment thread, yes another one– but I have a pretty captive audience, and people to direct things at, so it’s like– I’ll put up major shit on there just automatically.
The article is formatted how it is, because of Imgur’s character limit. These all follow one after the other, but they’re in these little chunks at the limit of 140 characters.
I started this by attacking someone for calling themself an “ally” of gay people. Like they deserve a title for being a regular, MODERATELY decent person. I hate that shit with liberals– I can’t stand it. Thank you master, oh thank you. You deign to grace us with your favor. Your scraps have saved my gay soul.
Anyway, this shit goes deep AND IF YOU’RE AT ALL INTERESTED IN IMGUR– THIS IS SOME SHIT FOR YOU. Cus that place is ker–fucked. It applies to a lot of the rest of the internet too, but Imgur is really bad about mob mentality, and a false sense of virtue. But everywhere has that last bit, cus… millennials. Truly the angels from on high– always doing good in the world, and making sure to believe they’re good people, whatever the bloodshed.
My fucking pastor is like this. It’s just his aura. Every second he expects to be worshipped for helping the gays.
As an actual Christian, if you hold your hand out for riches every time you do something good– just stop. You’re in it for evil reasons.
Here’s the thing with these people: They’re like animals. They leech off a cause for moral points, and if challenged, they bounce off like a
pinball. Then they try to score moral points again– and eventually, when they’re like 80, they realize how meaningless it all was.
We’re going to have millennial “boomers” who sit there defeated and don’t know what the fuck to think. Am I a good person? *Screeching*
YES!! I HAVE TO BE! Wait… I don’t actually know… Every one of you, ESPECIALLY you Imgurians, are setting yourself up for this crisis.
Hear me now, before you’re rotting away– you need to try to be a good person. **Effort. Not choices.** Maybe I can save a few of you.
Next time you burn someone at the stake for being a bigot, think of the EFFORT required to not do that. Then do not do that. Baby steps.
Y'all apparently think the guys throwing stones at the sinner were the good guys.
If persecuting the bad guy made you a good person, don’t you think we’d be in paradise by now? Or does it not work that way at all?
If you think you’re building your character by persecuting others, IMGUR FOR FUCK’S SAKE, you’re doing the POLAR FUCKING OPPOSITE I ASSURE.
Are we being becoming better people, or are we GETTING BETTER AT PERSECUTING?! BRAIN TIME EVERYBODY.
Animals, truly. You think chasing your impulses makes you a better person. Who the fuck could be that stupid, Imgur?
Next time you hit downvote on a -50 comment, picture it in real life. Screaming and throwing rotten food. Is that what you want to be?
If so, step back and look. Float up in your mind a look at that crowd. Is that what a good person would do? Now imagine their expressions.
Demons, every one of them. Welcome to the true face of humanity. If you want to be a good person, get a million miles away from that, today.
And if you think jumping in with the comment, slamming a spear into his side, makes you a hero– time to scratch out your eyes and repent.
This is something I know for a fact– it takes the tiniest little factor for the mob to go from righteous to monstrous. It’s razor wire.
If you’re part of a mob, as you so often are on Imgur, it takes just a flicker of defiance– one wrong word– to switch to witch burning.
Now you sit on this wire, a speck of dust away from burning someone alive, and you would ever think you’re a good person.
It’s. Not. How. One. Is. Good. This is not how it’s done, okay. Stop believing you’re good for this. It’s impossible. You *cannot be*.
If anyone followed this, the wool is lifted. “How could we ever think that way?” Carry on wayward children.
And ONE DUDE UPVOTED ALL OF IT. PUT IT IN THE BOOKS, BITCH. SAVED A SOUL.
Edit: De Wa. Idk if I’m getting this right, or it’s just one bitch, but apparently this fucks Tumblr’s shit up royally, lol. Righteousness is the most favored fruit of the wicked man, as one especially persistent internet crusader taught me.
