    There is a difference between making accusation to all humans and specific subgroup of humans. In first part of the post I was referring to my discontent of humanity - all humans. In second part I was referring to people who are not consistent in their moral values - subgroup of humans. It is incorrect to presume debate about all humans transfers automatically into all parts of the post.

      Sep 8 2011: Mr. Anony Mouse, Could you please define 'discontempt' for me? It is a new word for me and I'd like to understand your meaning.
      • Sep 9 2011: Sorry, I have made a spelling error. I believe the right word would be "discontent" - as in: "dissatisfaction; restless desire for something more or different". I'm not a native English speaker, so I mostly use intuition with spelling of words and sentence formation, it's usually right, but I still fail at certain words and/or sentences.
