Cynicism is something that seems to have a number of advantages, especially that it appears to match well with reality.
The reason for the development of cynicism lie in the natural ability of people, to get in this world with prudence and vigilance.
Another, and in my opinion the most common source of cynicism is based on frustrated idealism.
When the reality doesn’t match with the good wishes of people, the cynic beats his breast, saying i was right, that he had predicted.
Obviously his situation is less honorable than that, cz. cynics are often the same who frustrate the goed wishes of others.
I dare myself to the proposition that a cynic is someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
Think about it, and give me your comments.
