@Mr Fight the Power,
Nihilism is not an over night choice, I would even go to the extreme and say it's not even a choice. If anything it's a product, for me it's a built up thing, I delved into self hate, and hating everything, in a few years the hate become nothing, not love, not acceptance. It's a factor if I could these people, I would. But I'm guessing even now you wouldn't understand, listen to Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar and Nine Inch Nail's The Downward Spiral, those records show the basics of Nihilism, once again not a over-night choice, it takes you to loose so much to give up, and even then that's not enough. If you have any question, don't hesitate.
