The OP is honest and I tend to share his views.
A lot of people swear blood oaths in support the fashionable topics but will do flip all about it.

All I know is Id kill you all for a Ford Mustang and a bungalow near Lough Corrib.

I admit that I’ve disengaged a bit from worrying about society at large. I just don’t have the headspace for it. It’s too overwhelming.

There are so many people who care so much about all of the above as if it's the most important thing in the whole world but honestly I just don't give a **** about any of it. I know I probably should but I just don't. I feel completely unaffected by all the bull****. Anyone else feel the same?

Btw, I could write a full short novel on all the things I don't give a **** about.....
Give up the fapping for a couple of weeks. See if you care then ! Might refocus you a bit.....

I feel sorry for people like you. And even more so for the people around you, family, friends. People who want to see you in a positive light. Perhaps you have family who have kids. Would you tell them and their kids that you don't give a toss about them and their future? You probably won't, unless its a tongue in cheek comment down the pub in-between comments around how important it is for [insert whatever football team you support here] to get 3 points on Sunday.

Its cowardly and weak minded to say you don't give a toss about anything. Have you every given anything beyond social requirements to anyone in life outside of family? You probably have an excuse for not giving to charity or not giving money to homeless people on the street. But the excuses have run thin so now you are just throwing out blanket "I just don't care" excuses.

I'm not judging though OP. You can exercise free will, yay.

I used to work with a guy, shrewd business man, sat the same attitude as you. He developed cancer later in life and thankfully survived. It changed him. Not the cancer bit, but the fact that so many people in his life rallied around him to show him support, showed that even though he was an asshole, people still cared.

Your post completely depends on whether OP is an asshole to those around him. Can you not just accept there are some people who couldn’t care less for society wide issues? Doesn’t mean they are bad people at all, they just have priorities and crying over every injustice in the world isn’t part of them

I love my extended family and kids, but do I care what happens the world or the climate when I’m gone? Nope because I’ll be dead and unable to feel or think. Do I care about the war in x and y? Nope, because it won’t pay the bills on my shoulders or help my grandfather survive another 3 months.

As a family do what we can for climate and biodiversity but we have real lives to live right now. It’s important to me to spend as much family time as possible and that is where the majority of my focus is.

Excuse me Mr. Moderator but just to point out that you are being a dick. That is against the rules, kindly refrain from doing so again if you can. Thank you.

I'm finding hard to find a point to your rant Mod. I am extremely caring to all my family and friends because they are what's important to me. No, I never give to a homeless person because I know they are going to drink it, snort it or inject. Now of course you'll tell me I'm wrong but everyone else knows I'm right. If I give something to them they'll just be waiting there for more the next day. You can't try to make me feel bad about it but guess what?? Yep, I don't give a ****
