"Yes, I do consider myself corrupt, it is just part of being human. I only stand separate by being enlightened, and yes, I do believe I am enlightened. I won't explain why, I don't need to, I am happy to know what I know for myself."
You talk a lot about ignorant people without actually pointing out who exactly and why you're qualified to judge them. If the world is better off without mankind, then why are you here? Why not promote suicide cults and why not just go out and do what you want right now? As far as I can tell, you play by all the societal rules while simultaneously decrying them.
Furthermore, you enjoy the benefits of the government and those so-called "ignorant people" while declining to mention them. The quality of life you enjoy, the technologies you're enjoying at this very moment, your clothing, your food -- Guess what? The things you do every day come at the cost of others, which, as far as I can see, makes you just as bad as the "ignorant people" you go on about by destroying others with your ignorance. The food you eat comes at the cost of destroying the environment, inhumane treatment of animals, immigrant labor -- the clothes you wear can come from sweat shops and forced, dirty, underpaid labor and can contribute to pumping more chemicals in the air as it is transported halfway across the world. The streets you live on paved over some creature's natural habitat. Why do you get to cast judgment on everyone else? Why do you get to be so enlightened and still commit the same sins you look down on?
The "core problem" here isn't being addressed because it's greatly flawed. It's not an established fact (unless you'd like educate us with actual, tangible proof of your claims), it is a construct of your opinion and philosophy and ultimately a loaded question. I can't tell you why so many ignorant people are allowed to live while inadvertently hurting others with their ignorance because I don't believe in a philosophy that makes me superior to the rest of the human race who differs in point of view and choice. If I phrase a question such that I say "Have you stopped being an idiot?", you can't exactly answer yes or no without implicating yourself to being an idiot. If you ask "Why are so many ignorant people allowed to live?", I can't tell you without implying that I actually believe in your view.
"First of all, I do reap benefits, because I see the world as an irreparable mess. I don't care if I decline it more, because I am helping the one cause I have hope for, the slow decline of our species. In the end, why should I waste my time do anything more than being happy and comfortable before I die (that's rhetorical, while I'll listen to your reasons, I can almost guarantee I won't care afterward)?"
"As for tangible proof, there's no such thing. You cannot prove to me anything, because I can refute it, even if my refusal is completely outrageous and unbased, as long as you cannot prove my refusal to be completely, 100% untrue, then no actual proof can exist. So, I can say, the entire world is under the whims of a God who likes to fuck with people's heads. I can say, that God actually warps the known laws of physics when no one is looking, just because he can. You can't prove that isn't true, or a number of other outrageous philosophical statements, or even reasonable philosophical statements. So, all proof, far enough removed, is baseless. I live by what I (me, and only me), can perceive, so I can't make you perceive things with my brain, so no proof can be given."
I find it disturbingly presumptuous that you believe people are better off dead who are in those circumstances. What is your rationale? I would think as long as you're alive and able to pursue happiness you're better off than being dead -- unless you couple these opinions of yours with an equally fundamental religious viewpoint, then I could see some twisted logic to them.
I can't imagine seeing non-existence as a viable alternative to life as a sane position -- that's a suicidal belief, not a concept held by a rational mind.
"That last statement, and many of your statements are as baseless as mine, and only hold true because most people perceive them that way. Yet you hold them like facts and swing them like a blade of righteousness as much as I do. The difference is, I know, at the end of the day, I might just be totally fucked and wrong, and there's not anything I can do about it because I can't honestly make an educated philosophical decision based on anything other than my perceptions."
"That's how I stand apart, I'm screwed and corrupt, and I accept it and try to better myself. Most people, don't even stop to consider that, don't even begin to consider other people. I've come to my conclusions about the best thing for mankind because I have spent so much time considering other people, I've come to realize they don't deserve my consideration because they refuse to even try to be open-minded."
"Believe what you want, come to my house and lynch me for your beliefs, but it doesn't change what I believe to be true, and it doesn't change that you don't KNOW anything. I'm sorry if it offends you or bothers you that I can see the close-minded ignorance of the masses, but it doesn't change what I see, and I will call what I see to the skies even if God himself kills me for it."
