>>25674077 call me an autist, but I genuinely don't understand why people care when celebrities die. you've never met them and if you have, it was only fleeting and they probably weren't even being 100% themselves.
>>25674122 not necessarily about bowie in particular,
but if an artist dies and can no longer make art that you enjoy, don't you think it is understandable that it could be slightly upsetting people don't need to cry and mourn all of it, but knowing that said artist will never make new material could be depressing to someone
>>25674258 I guess so. I wasn't talking about being sad that they won't make more art, I meant mourning them as a person. I get the former, but the latter will always be alien to me. I have too much empathy when someone is in front of me, but if they're not, then they might as well not even exist.
>>25674290 but what's the point? I don't understand the concept of admiration/having a role model. I've never had one and not because there was a lack of people to look up to, just because I don't see the point. I remember as a kid, when people asked me who mine was, I'd always make something up on the spot. why would you bother hold some other human up to some kind of standard just because they did/said things? they're still human and just as flawed as you are. they can still be a cunt. they're not special or worthy of anything just because of their actions or fame. they're just people.
>>25674539 >Some people are more worthy than other people. says who? humans? so what? worthy by what metric? worthy of what? what does it even matter, anyway? if i had to save the president/prime minister/etc or my best friend, I'd choose my best friend any day of the week. hell, I'd choose an acquaintance. this stuff is highly subjective.
>Not everyone is created equal sure, some people win the genetic or life lottery, but that doesn't mean that they're automatically a 'better' or 'more worthy' person. that just means they're lucky.
>You seem to think pretty highly of yourself. How's that? For thinking that we should all treat each other fairly? thinking highly of myself would be thinking I should be treated better.
