    I would prefer the term "realist," but pessimist is probably close enough.

    The man who coined the phrase "Optimism is cowardice," Oswald Spengler*, curiously also refused to identify himself as a pessimist.

    * - And I'd appreciate it if no one trots out that idiotic canard that Spengler was some sort of Nazi, k thanks.

    I'm pessimistic and proud. Being optimistic just ruins life's terrible surprises. Thinking every experience will have a favorable outcome........will just disappoint you. You'll end up driving yourself insane.

    Largely optimistic, if I can help it. Granted, my exposure to Nihilistic and Existential ideas--as well as so much of thew news in the world--can make it difficult to maintain.

    I'd be optimistic if I had something to be optimistic about, unfortenately there is nothing bright in the future.. unless you believe you're going to heaven.

    I feel this way myself sometimes, but then I realise people are just doing what they are conditioned or taught to do, usually at a very young age....some people, usually very noisy people, or those that are completely oblivious to others, and the planet, I wanna see vanish...but ya Im not the kinda bastard that could see it through.

    There is an organisation out there that would like to see 80% reduction in earths population. Wonder if im part of the 80%? wonder how you qualify for "termination" :dry:
