WORLDVIEW worldview theme playing card #36 description
I thought people could be trusted, had
good intentions, were caring, decent, honorable--I now know better. Humans beings, I believe,
are self serving and canít be trusted to do good.
Those who profess to be altruistic are deluded,
not seeing misguided self interest for what it is.
Most are lazy, mean, corrupt, and immoral--hypocrites, too stupid to see themselves as such.
I was once more accepting and forgiving, now I
am critical--sneering at, and finding fault with,
much of what people do and say. (Note: Some
cynics compound their suspicions of peopleís
motives into imagining that a few individuals
with their own hidden agenda are conspiring to
infiltrate key institutions, manipulate events and shape outcomes to their
liking. They link many
societal problems to this belief in conspiracism.)
