People are assholes by default. But not all of them. I know this because i am people. There are more than 7 billion of my kind on this planet and one can safely assume that quite a lot are terrible beings. They succumb to human frailties like ego, envy, anger, gossip and such exciting but ridiculous energy-consumers on a daily basis. It's a way of life to be concise. However, despite all things bad and worse, people are wonderful too. One of my excuses for continuing to believe in them. Because if i give up on strangers-who-could-be-admirable, then there's no point in assuming anything. If i can assume that there are terrible people, then i should also assume that there are really nice ones too out there. Those who make you want to believe in random individuals without expecting too much. If people don't believe in people, who will?
