Some Reaction Against a Society That They Believe Has Rejected Them

tyne, on whether non-curmudgeons, if they saw "the truth", would see it as negatively as curmudgeons do: “I question the validity of this claim for many reasons, some stemming from the fact that most curmudgeons seem to be motivated less from knowledge of their own mortality, than some reaction against a society that they believe has rejected them. But, putting this aside, still this claim lacks something. Is it really more logical to be pessimistic than optimistic? Are optimistic people delusional, are they naive, are they uninformed? Or do these characteristics more accurately describe the pessimist?”
