"Inside every cynical person,
there is a disappointed idealist."
– George Carlin
Cynical People (or CxPPL. stylistically) recognize that life is full of difficulties and awfulness, but see the potential to do better. CxPPL. acknowledge and confront flaws in order to improve. CxPPL. accept the end will happen eventually... So let's just make the most of now.
Deconstruct! Scrutinize! Doubt!
The modern world is filled with horror and misery. There is room to do better — if we are willing to believe that. The journey might be difficult. And it might be awful. But that which does not kill us, makes us stronger.
Or Cynical. But whichever sounds better to you.
