What’s the Problem with Cynicism?
I frequently come across people accusing others of being ‘cynical’ or ‘cynics’ as though it were some moral failing, a weakness of character.
What exactly is the problem? As far as I see, cynicism is both fairly accurate and an entirely reasonable position to take in the world in which we live.
Thoughts? I’d love an explanation. It doesn’t necessarily have to come from someone who believes with that common opinion – just as long as they know why it happens.
