Selective Empathy

  A selective empathetic is a more sinister evil than the outright unempathetic. The unempathetic is quite small in numbers, and are under more scrutiny. The selective empathetic is one of reflective desire, picking and choosing those to be glad for and wishing to prosper based off of desired personal gain, gain that involves putting others down in the process. This level of empathy is pure submission to outside preachers, outside systems, media, literature, art, and economics, and represents a dark and fallible inner sense. Letting things simply happen, apathetic to their greater truth, nihilistic in meaning, and a walking product of guiding forces around them. A pure empathetic is empathetic to all in all situations, noticing the humanity in all. It is sad to notice the selective empathetic being a prevalent and lauded endeavor, when the qualities of such selective empathetic are thought of also as manipulation. A great contradiction in social morality and personal character judgeme

Traumatized Exception Seekers


The lie

Presented as scientific

Presented as intellectual

Homo Sapien

Homo Faber

Man the wise

Man the maker

Truly belittling

Autonomy and transcendence

Apparent in description

Homo sapien and homo faber

Perverted the idea of autonomy

Existentialism as the cornerstone

A transcendence above reality

The trauma of constraint within our minds

Made us feel the need to escape

We were bound by none other

Than the slave morality

That Nietzsche perverted in its definition

A retribution? No, an individuality.

Slavery is to the individual

As trauma is to the human


Equal in refinement

Potent in solitary confinement

Systemically imposed on ourselves

The man is not the maker

The man is the lost

The man is not the creator

The man is the reshaping

The man is not transcendent

The man is transcendent to himself only

Reshaping the human identity

As one of an acceptance of loss

Necessary in our grievance with the traumatic impact of existence itself

One of snark being the sole remainder

In a hope for stability


The traumatized automata

The exception seeker

Bound by the perspective of himself

And his neighbors

Traumatized by constraint in an unconstrained world.
