For instance: I have nothing but contempt for the notion that I should give preferential treatment (enabling/mollycoddling etc.), to my idiot, heroin-addict half-brother — under any circumstances.
Quite frankly, the ‘best” I can hope for is for the stupid fuck-stain to overdose/contract AIDS and die (making the world just that much cleaner). Barring that, the aforementioned stupid fuck could attempt to “kick” heroin — after which he would still be a foul, degenerate, borderline-illiterate, bigoted, high-school dropout who attempted to assault me in my own mother’s driveway.
I’m not going to play this bullshit, Doublethink game everyone else plays (“I love him, but I don’t ‘like’ him!”). There is very literally no rational justification for such bullshit. In fact, that sort of “exception-making” is functionally indistinguishable from the type of “enabling” and cover-ups my (equally idiotic bitch of a) “mother” has been doing, for decades.
If I wanted to invest the time and effort necessary to attempt to ‘rehabilitate” a bigoted, drug-addled scumbag, I’m pretty sure I could just exactly that sort of bipedal vermin easily enough.
So, no: I do not “love” the drug-addled psychopath. Nor will I ever ‘forgive” it for its antics. Moreover, if we lived in a civilization which actually gave a shit about justice, I would be in a position to put the delusional sub-animal down permanently, the millisecond it attempted to paw at me.
I genuinely regret that I was not in a position to do so, and that the worthless junkie fuck-stain has continued to draw breath/consume resources as a result.
