The world is the way it is for a reason. People don't have the first clue what it takes to run the world, and at the end of the day, you will never please everyone. It's almost like people take pleasure in thinking that 'society' is bad. Lets not forget that 'society' is made up of individuals, with individual thoughts and opinions.
I think it's human nature to moan. I think that there needs to be some bad news in the world everyday because what on earth would happen if people had nothing to moan about? Maybe it keeps us happy, it keeps our minds focused on one thing so we forget to think about the other stuff. We focus on our routines. We focus on ourselves.
It makes me sad that lots of people will have a tough life being poor, starving or homeless. Or ill. And I wish I could change it, but I'm not arrogant enough to think for a second that I could. I am so insignificant on this planet, and the best I can do is be eternally grateful for everything I have been provided. And I am. To me the buds on the trees in springtime is a reason for living. To witness the sky turn a deep turquiose blue at dusk just after the sun sets. These are the miracles that happen every day and I wonder how many other people stop to appreciate these things and be thankful. And to think there is so much beauty left in the world waiting for me to discover it – it blows my mind. That's it, that is my aim in life, to see as much of the world as I can.
I believe it's okay to find excessive human contact tiresome. In the recent past I'd have said I didn't like people. But that's not true. I don't like certain common human characterisitcs, but to say I don't like people is inaccurate. Some people touch my life and my heart every day. Is it wrong to thank these people. Of those who I know well, I've thanked them. Gratitude is important to me, and I believe there isn't enough of it going around.

Blaming society keeps people from having to look at their own culpability in whatever they're complaining about. Scapegoats - be they individuals or larger groups (like society as a whole) - are a way for people to absolve themselves of guilt for whatever's being scapegoated.

I don't like certain common human characteristics either, including some that are a part of me as much as anybody.
