Kettle calling the pot black
I recently had someone on here who degraded me for being an idiot and then make his own post to further degrade idiots in general
What he doesn't understand though is that yes, he has the right to think I'm an idiot, but by degrading and ridiculing me he's showing himself to be a jackass
It's like the kettle calling the pot black
But it's a jackass calling another person an idiot
And while there will undoubtedly be people who agree with him, like other jackass
There are other "idiots" like me and of course the morally and spiritually developed people who understand the hippocrasy in someone who thinks they're better and who tries to degrade people
If you were really superior to me, you would help lift me to your level
It's like this movie I saw once. I forget the title, but it's set in the 70s and it's about these college students going to some tribe of cannibals and a search and rescue team looking for them
Almost everyone calls this tribe of people savages, and the movie sets the audience up to think the same. But by the end of it, you realize that this tribe of people is like the quintessential prehistoric human civilization that WE ALL developed from, and the people saying they're savages are shown to do things like carve the shell off a living tortoise and relish cruelty wherever they go
There's no reasoning with them either, they have guns and other societal advancements so to them there is no question, it's their birthright to wipe the earth of things they deem unsuitable to inhabit it and to rape the earth of whatever resources they deem necessary
The question the movie wants the audience to ask themselves though is who are the real savages?
You'd have to watch it to understand they're not stereotypical cannibals, I forget the full context but it's more or less you fuck with them and they tie you to their culture's cross and do the deed.
Now I do think cannibalism is wrong and I wouldn't do it, but I can see how prehistoric people could act upon that, like how Egyptians could worship the sun and human animal hybrids and a plethora of other things that would make sense in their time and world but not for me in mine
So the point I'm trying to make about this person, it takes a really shitty and underdeveloped attitude to criticize those you call idiots, basically putting you in a different place, sure, but a similar level of your worth as a human being, assuming the idiot is underdeveloped as you (but the same assumption doesn't need to be made about you since you're going out of your way to be a jack ass)
Like the quote to err is human, to forgive is divine, we're all gonna fuck up through out our lives, but it takes an objectively good person to truly be okay with people for who they are
