I like the idea of commentary I could refer others to read if they aren't understanding why I won't get a long with them.

Nihilism IS EVIL

Everything is subjective, instant gratification, we are all perfect the way we are, etc. are all centered around the idea that nothing matters.

'Culture/Literature? What literature, art is subjective, nothing matters' screams the nihilist.

Corporate leaders, humanitarians, libertarians, communists, homeless people, middle class, young, old, they have all bought into the idea that the only thing that matters is the immediate satisfaction of the greatest number of people.

Yes, religion is by its nature anti-nihilist but even there it has become more about fashion than substance.

It is a great evil that this personal philosophy has become so wide spread, it is dedicated to destroying all beauty and purpose in the world.

Nihilism calls for pacifism, hedonism, and empty head morons with no desires. Yet now it is considered intelligent and anyone who believes in anything be it culture, war, art, literature, money, power, etc. is derided for offending people.

Are you a nihilist, is your family a nihilist? If the answer is no that means yes because everyone nowadays is a nihilist and its wrecks my heart beyond belief.
I have spent my life feeling defeated and hopeless for others and it is simple to do to me. Present with an ideology that I can't categorize because I never knew the name is so commonly pitched. Sucks!

    The fact that this individual idea has grown so widely is a terrible evil because it is committed to eradicating all beauty and meaning from the world.

    Pacifism, hedonism, and empty-headed, desirous people are what nihilism demands. However, it is now regarded as clever, and anyone who holds any belief—be it in culture, war, art, literature, money, power, etc.—is mocked for upsetting people.



    Are you and/or your family members nihilists? Since everyone in today's society is a nihilist, the response is either yes or no, which breaks my heart beyond repair.

    Your comment is beautiful as your frustration is echoed in my heart. I also can't help but notice that the belief system takes from a man's approach where we turn our cheek. A very common point of fraud in my opinion.
