Here in Mad Monsters, we talk about monsters – the scary and fictional kind. They are the kinds of monsters we hide from when we sleep. The kind that lurk inside our closets or under our beds.
As we grow older, we realize that these monsters are nothing but figments of our imagination. Sure, we still get scared but there are times when we admit to ourselves that all of this is nothing more than us scaring ourselves.
Now, I brought this up not because I like to scare you guys. As a matter of fact, I’d be the first one out of the door if this was a scare trip.
I brought this up because I was reading up on some pages through Reddit and came through a thread that I probably shouldn’t have opened but I did. The title was “Who’s would be a candidate for the worst person ever in the history of man?”
Now, at first this came to me as a joke. I mean, candidates for worst person ever?
But as soon as I started reading about the people listed on the thread, I came to realize one thing.
We, human beings, are the real monsters.
Just because we don’t have horns, leathery wings, fangs, or third-eyes doesn’t discount us from being monsters. It’s what we do.
When you try to think about it, it all makes sense.
See, a monster is something that is utterly evil and is out to get you. They hurt you or scare you. Oftentimes, they do whatever they can to cause you pain and suffering.
Look at what we are doing on a daily basis.
- We don’t throw our garbage at the proper bins.
- We don’t help out other people who are in need.
- We purposely go out of our way just to avoid certain people.
- We knowingly hurt people on a daily basis physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
- We put our own bodies in danger by living an unhealthy lifestyle.
- We endanger other people’s lives by not caring enough.
There’s just too many to mention but by now I hope you get the point.
