    I would post a rant on the degrading socialism of newer GTQ users, and the serious lack of drive to fix this problem, but most of them are too busy being carbon copies of the exact same personalities to notice this thread in the first place.

    Kids today are so f---ing shallow. Nothing to actually differentiate themselves from the cookie cutter personalities they associate with.

    Humans have the ability to categorize things. And usually that's really useful. But when you start categorizing people, it becomes really dangerous. People aren't meant to be categorized. But they do it. They put a name or a group to everyone they know, including themselves. And they associate PEOPLE with that cliche' personality. And when you start associating yourself with a preset foundation, you remove your own humanity. I honestly can't even remember half of the newbies on here. And it's not because I don't try and socialize with them, it's because they're all exactly the same.

    And the worst part is that this will get buried.

    You know what, I'm curious. Hypothetically let's say this is a suicide letter. I'm giving it 10 minutes to get noticed. (That's lenient. If I were serious it probably wouldn't be more than 2 or 3 minutes) If nobody notices this in 10 minutes, the experiment is failed, and I would have hypothetically killed myself. Let's begin.

    I already noticed this, and was about to say something. But I needed to tell something to my mom.

    Anyway, I agree completely. We stereotype ourselves and make ourselves like others. But why? It doesn't seem like people in our parents' generations did this.

    I believe it has something to do with media. We idolize people and put them in positions of wealth and power. We have convinced ourselves that "we need to be like our idols". So we try and turn ourselves into our favorite actors or musicians. And those of us who didn't try and turn into famous people, try to blend in, which inevitably means we're trying to be the exact same. But with things being lost in translation so to speak, all the actual humanity in it is lost and it becomes dumbed down.
    Just my theory.
