it's the fact that people are so self absorbed, they can't even see how much they're hurting others
maybe try getting some glasses? you know, so you can actually see beyond the end of your nose?
e m p a t h y. it's a real thing. yes, this may be shocking, but empathy does exist outside of fictional books. it's something that every human should strive for, and that starts now, with the little things, like thinking before you post and considering how you might feel
kindness is such a hard thing, am i right? it's so difficult to try to be nice to others, and it's very hard to actually think before you do something. of course it is. what, do you expect people to actually use their brains? everyone knows brains are purely for ornamental purposes.
(sorry, none of this is directed at you or the vast majority of fandom who is polite and respectful and amazing. i'm just... really mad and i sorta held back on the comment so now it's all coming out here... sorry. hermione is being salty....)
Basically, it's a really big ditch that people like to walk in, so they can reflect on their lives in a "realer" form.
People like saying that no one knows how it formed, but actually aliens came to attack the USA, and so they through really big rocks--or really tiny planets at us, then gave up and had antartic nuke arizona instead.
mount rushmore has the face of 4 "great" men carved into it. maybe they were all former presidents, i honestly don't remember.
either way, mount rushmore is a tribute to man's vanity. it's meant to be a great feat, but all it really shows is exactly how egotistical humankind is. it shows that we think so highly of ourselves, we feel we deserve to be carved into nature. it shows that humans believe they actually matter in this world. mount rushmore is a tribute to humankind's ego, vanity, and false sense of power. it is nothing more than a way to portray our sense of being important. in other words, mount rushmore is a tribute to human idiocy.

I just love the fact that you forgot that I come from a long line of americans and was born in america, and that you totally glossed over the Crimean War, but to put it in terms that you understand, both my cultures whooped your country's butt.
