I was reading an RPG forum where someone posed the question:
Open question: Why do we, at times, feel compelled to look at something else that someone does for fun and evaluate it negatively?
There were a number of pages of people’s opinions about the matter. Some with a lot of philosophy. I didn’t really have time to read them all, and the answer is really very simple:
I haven’t read through all the 3 pages of posts, so I don’t know what everyone else has written, but I think it can easily be summed up by the following:
- People like to feel good about them self.
- People like to feel they are better than others.
- The easiest way to do this is to put other people down.
And if you think otherwise you are misguided and don’t know what you are talking about 🙂
