I think hatred is far more common in our day to day lives than most people would like to admit.
In fact, I think, I could say that it is the default emotion which one feels towards the others. It might not always be in its extreme form.But its undertone is almost always there.

These days Pelagianism is everywhere. Augustine says that he observed a lot of children and the reason they do not go around murdering people is not because they do not want to,but because they are physically weak.The free-will debate is really puerile, I think anyone who honestly gives some thought to it can see it for himself that we have none.

What the antinatalists do not seem to understand is that they can preach as much as they like about the misery of existence and yet most people, would ,continue to reproduce.While I would in all probability continue to study mathematics,I would not like to set any goals for myself.
In a world like this one, the only goal worth having is to not have any.

The ancients, some of them, called a spade a spade.I think in the end all the logical systems breakdown and only eternal pessimism remains. Pessimism of Schopenhauer and Cioran.This world is full of suffering and cruelty and I do not seem to like it one bit. Not one bit.

I would like to explore Pascal as a pessimistic thinker. I would like to know what he has to say.
I cannot make head or tail of this existence.Schopenhauer's book  deserves to outsell the Bible. But of course that will never happen. Never.

Take care.
