    What qualifies a person (any race) as "Trash"? Ex: "Oh yeah, they're trash."

    Poll is Multiple Choice

    What qualifies a person (any race) as "Trash"? Ex: "Oh yeah, they're trash."

    Often I've found this question intriguing because while almost everybody can agree that a certain segment of any society could potentially fall under the label of "trash", almost no group I've encountered can ever truly agree on what qualifies a person as actual "trash". The very subject usually is enough to get a group of friends not speaking to one another rather quickly thanks to views being so polarized.


    I'm going to give some of the more socially popular options but by all means add your own ideas as to what makes a person trash in society or by all means vehemently disagree with the options I add or even the premise that "trash" exist at all.

    By trash I'm applying the concept of: being a detestable person who brings nothing but - but only bad - to their society. Like 'lower than dirt'.

    A race of people?
    No - never.

    My definition above would be achieved only by actions of said individual over a period of time. Maybe some actions are so bad that a one time show is enough.

    Essentially, people whose only purpose in life seems to be to generate trouble and then drag other people into it.


    If done with a needless excess of crudity, ignorance and stupidity that brings down the bar for us all, that pretty well cinches it.

    Yeah see to me I think what denotes true trash is someone who's insecurities manifest in them openly on a near daily basis.


    In other words, someone who cannot accept that everything truly is, at the end of the day, relative. Especially morality above all else.

    Other.

    Willful actions detrimental to the wellbeing of the human race. Taking actions detrimental to another individual/group (actual, provable harm, not perceived) without justification of defense of self or others or defense Life, Liberty or property (of self or others). Declaring/promoting a "right" to the property or production of others (other than in compensation for labor, services or traded goods).

    The view point of the individual making a judgment of others.

    No one is "trash". No one should be thrown away. Everyone can improve themselves with help from their fellow human beings.

    I disagree. It is impossible to repair certain areas of the brain that failed to develop. So obviously, sociopaths/psychopaths and socialist are beyond redemption. Better to just remove them to protect decent humans.
