Misanthopes And Curmudgeons

Are misanthropes destined to become curmudgeons? Or can we disdain humanity and be happy at the same time?

I'd say it depends on the misanthropist, personally there are a few things in life that makes me happy anymore. The more and more I thought about "life in general" I realized what an ignorant foolish child I'd been for such a long time. The more I thought about it, the more depressed I got, but at the same time: the better it felt. It was a... revelation!

I suppose I prefer truth rather than lies, no matter how unpleasant the truth might be.
So what I really want said here is that I very much enjoy myself when I have "realizations" (that's at least what I call it for now). I get these when I simply think about something and realize just how stupid something is, just how fragile it is, and how many sees it as the way to go. However.. There is a downside: The more I know, the more I realize how stupid everything is.

I suppose that if many of us misanthropists.. "banded together" we could perhaps have lots of fun together, discussing and supporting eachother. Some misanthropists might hate that however, just because we're in agreement on some thing doesn't mean we would agree on all things. A few humans in a room together creates loads of opinions I suppose..

Hope you feel like keeping topics like these up. Thanks for posting and contributing to potentially good discussions.
