Just a stub for now

[95 Sep 10]

Sometimes I feel disgust for people, and pick up a general impression that this is not thought of as good. I can see, for example, that it might not be good to regard someone as a problem to be solved more than as a person, however much their attempting to acheive their own aims distresses me.

It is certain things that people do, or the way they do things, that I feel disgusted at... perhaps it's not the actual people themselves, although it is easy to regard someone whose actions are largely repugnant as being repugnant, and to despise, loathe or hate them.

I think I was thinking of frotters when I wrote the above, but "disgust" also describes my response to irresponsible people a generalization of "litterbugs").
