So how much longer are we going to pretend like everything if just fine. A-okay? I for one am sick of this illusion people claim to be reality. Excuse my French, but this is BULLSHIT! I am not just talking about left or right preference, I am talking about the extinction of the human race – or at least 90+ percent of it! Does that grab your attention?
I live in America okay – and so far I have lived a pretty comfortable, sheltered life. I grew up in a one square mile town. I think you get the idea. But I am not ignorant, not in the sense that I claim or act like I “know it all,” but rather I have some sort of intelligent understanding of how the world “works.” I use quotation marks because the world fails more than it works.
Think about the current events – just the real factual information that is so seldom reported on what most people consider the news. This world is pretty disgusting right now. People die daily all over the world from lack of food or water or shelter – the basics. Why?
There is war and conflict that cause countless unnecessary hardships up to and including death for again countless people. Why?
This is all without mentioning those who maybe barely “get by” but ought to be living with a basic sense of security and confidence. Why?
Do most people even so much as to bother to ask themselves or others this very simple question? Or how about asking the politicians, the policymakers, those who are supposedly “in charge” or represent “the people” and “their interests?” How in the world can a sane man claim America is a democracy when a sizable portion of the population probably cannot even accurately describe and explain what a democracy even is – or better yet, show how America exemplifies one – ha, good luck with that!
Really though? Why are people so complacent? Why do so many accept joblessness or working a meaningless shift 9-5 to barely earn enough to pay the bills to be able to live in the apartment in town close to work? WTF?!?
I am mad, I really am. I am 21 years old and I see a not so promising future for my generation. People simply do not bother to give a shit, about real issues in real time affecting everyone including themselves. Why? How? When did everyone stop giving a damn? I give two damns, but that does not make up for the X number of others who could really care less.
I don’t even have words, I could really get furious over this, and probably will at some point but I just do not understand how people are seemingly “okay” with the state of the world today and the direction in which it is heading.
