Also, there are people who live their entire lives with depression or anhedonia and, based on my story as well as the summary I will now present, these are the most inferior people of all. Even I am inferior for having anhedonia and depression myself and I would be the most inferior person if I could never fully recover from it.

Story Summary: Who you are as a person is nothing compared to your feelings of pleasure. Pleasure is superior to emotionless robots and people who don't have pleasure due to either depression or anhedonia (emotional numbness) are the equivalent to emotionless robots. You would still be nothing more than the equivalent to an inferior biological robot regardless of how much others value you, what great things you do in life, and how much you help others if you lived a life without pleasure. Even if who you are as a person does have human value and is not something "robotic," you would still be an utterly inferior human being because pleasure is the greatest thing about you in life and to lose it would make you inferior. So even if you were a psychopath like Hitler who slaughtered many innocent people, as long as you have pleasure, that would make you the better person. You would even be far better than a depressed and emotionally numb innocent person who instead helped many people around the world. So this is the reason why people with nice happy lives are the better people.

I believe in hedonism and hedonism states that pleasure is the only greatest thing in life. Everything else in life is nothing compared to pleasure. So this is the reason why pleasure is the only greatest thing about you as a person and to lose that would basically make you nothing as a person. My personal experience of pleasure also says to me that it is the greatest thing in life and that nothing else in life or about you as a person ever compares (even if you were a person who values the pleasure of others and lived solely to bring others pleasure). The fact is, you have lost your own pleasure if you had depression or anhedonia and you would still be nothing more than an inferior biological robot even if you instead lived solely to bring others pleasure. Yes, the pleasure of others matters just as greatly as your own. But you would still be nothing as a person without your own pleasure.

RE: We are nothing for suffering (my story)
I really think we're missing the OP's objective, which is to give cjlr something approaching an actual challenge to dissect, sentence by relentless sentence, even if only by sheer volume (11,681 words), although a proper cjlr dissection in his usual style could exhaust the entire supply of pages available in this forum, but some risks are worth the payoff in anticipated fun.

He always does, he's a sock of MotzartLink on this forum. It's kinda just what he does, when he is not failing at making music that is. This is like the 9th(ish) thread on the same subject, he's just a loser stuck on repeat.

Making a sock with the explicit purpose of spamming? Pretty sure there's rules about that...

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
