Whats wrong with humans, whats wrong with people? I dont get it...There is something deeply wrong with the way people think and act. Its almost as if
we are an experiment seriously gone wrong.
Is it fluoride, the education system, greed, sheer stupidity? Is there really people who are intelligent enough to perpetrate a massive multinational
conspiracy? Sometime i think that humans are to stupid to even consider.
I feel you, OQ. Speaking from the perspective of being a resident of Earth rather than just an American, I'm equally disgusted.
You would think, that here in the year Two Thousand and Fourteen, that the citizens of the globe would reflect our scientific and technological
advancements. We've only come halfway, we can better kill others with our tech. It is an advancement, but it's shameful. We advanced this far only
to strive for better ways to kill and maim.
You would think, considering all of our knowledge across all subjects, that we would put education on a high pedestal. That we would applaud an
achievement in at least understanding a concept, a method, etc. No, blessed be the Anti-Education movement. Physicists be damned, Joe Schmoe's barely
rudimentary parallel is Law & True. Continuing to study and understand a subject (any subject) in higher education is BS, anyone's mediocre lightbulb
moment shall suffice, even if it ignores known guidelines, rules, or all logic.
You would think, after having been around for thousands of years now, that we'd have the idea of compassion and humility down. We pride ourselves
globally on greedy acquisition, and control. We take what we covet from others, generally by force. We might as well be a planet of muggers. We
control the likeminded, and strive to control those we despise. The whole world is a control freak fest, every religion sinking it's festering,
mangled claws in societies, gnawing the cultural flesh from it's bones in a frenzied effort to transform others into their own ideal image. We have
no respect, not for nature, and not for ourselves. 7 billion people, countless cultures and religions, and we all try to dominate, no matter the pain
caused by obliterating those individual identities through religious and political excuses.
You would think, with thousands of years of agricultural mastering, that we would be able to feed the world with no issues. No, food comes with
strings to even the poorest corners of the world. Who cares about sharing that overflowing breadbasket cup when there is a buck to be made? Instead of
getting food surpluses to people who need it, those who have it horde it. And continue to horde it, or destroy it. We're the Planet of Waste. We
would rather the Haves keep or destroy excess food if it can't be bought than to actively give it to the Have-Nots. This should be deeply shameful,
but it's the Have-Not's fault anyway, so screw them.
We're not yet an intellectual species, we're still just barbarians. The only difference between the barbarians that we originate from and who we are
now is that today, we come with fancier toys of death. Our morals and goals have a long way to go yet. A sudden, planet-jarring event may be the
catalyst, or it may take thousands more years for us to understand (really
understand) but we won't know until it happens.
