Top Ten Evidences that Humans are Self-Righteous Beings

Human is a self righteous being. Humans will do anything to be recognised as a hero. And here are the reasons why.

The Top Ten

1 Humans at some point will think they are always in the right and always have the moral high ground

I genuinely didn't mean to generalise people. So, I apologise. Not every human in existence does this. But I believe deep down self righteousness lies dormant in all human hearts. - Aguythatpeopleignores

The thing is these generalization could be done to any animal, a living thing can only really see things from the view of like living things. A human can't understand how a plant feels just like a plant can't understand how a human feels.
Who is to say that lions don't see themselves as a hero or whale or a spider - germshep24

This list is an insult, you think just because some human's are terrible all humans are terrible grow up - germshep24

This list is stereotypical.

2 While fighting against something they disagree and hate they become the very thing they hate and will believe they are always right

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." - Friedrich Nietzsche - Aguythatpeopleignores

3 Humans will go as far as to kill other humans to promote their beliefs.

The New Zealand Shooter, ISIS, The Crusades. People like this is the proof that humans are self righteous beings. - Aguythatpeopleignores

The Sri Lanka bombings were horrible.

Yes, especially the Islamic Barbary Pirate Slave Trade from the 16th to 19th centuries, which kidnapped Europeans and sold them into slavery.

4 Humans have a holier than thou attitude

Deep down every human has a superiority complex against others. - Aguythatpeopleignores

This is very true. - Userguy44

5 "for the greater good" argument

Speaking of which. Humans think the ends justify the means because its all for the greater good because they just, righteous and superior - Aguythatpeopleignores

6 Humans are not compassionate

Never apologise to a mob. You will only validate their delusions. Do you want to know why? Because they think you deserve their cruelty and that their cruelty is "for the greater good" - Aguythatpeopleignores

7 Humans are selfish and do not care for the ones they judge

I mean why acknowledge your own flaws when you can judge the flaws of others and feel like you are a good person whilst having the delusion that you are making people better this way? - Aguythatpeopleignores

8 Humans condemn those who did a misdeed even if it isn't towards them

Humans also make mistakes. But humans will "righteously" judge others who made a mistake even if it isn't towards them. It is one thing to point out the mistake and evil action of someone and saying: "this is wrong, you shouldn't do this, he/she shouldn't have done it. It is one thing to hate the person for doing so. But humans have self proclaimed titles of Judge, Jury and executioner. They think they have to right to determine who deserves what and who doesn't. - Aguythatpeopleignores

9 Instead of forgiving humans hold grudges against one another

Even for the most trivial of things humans will hold a grudge on one another. It is one thing to commit a crime. And be unable to forgive an action of someone that caused you trauma. And then then there is acting no different than them because they did it to YOU. - Aguythatpeopleignores

10 Deep down all humans are hedonists

The human brain is wired to avoid everything that makes us unhappy and cause pain and pursue everything that makes us happy. That's what hedonism supports.
And humans are always like: "Since judging someone who did wrong makes me feel better about myself and happier. Other people must feel the same way, right? " - Aguythatpeopleignores
