I love this site. I dislike this site. It's good to know what's going on in the world but it also raging SUCKS.
The entire world has horrific issues, some folks try to fix things but it seems only small things get fixed to the governments taste only. The world is in debt, constant wars, people can barely get by, lots need more than 2 jobs to barely make it. Things get cheaply made and cost more and more to get.
People have to put their parents into homes and then they lose everything if they're on Medicaid or Medicare because they take all your assets to pay for the care. they don't care if you're homeless long as they get the money.
money money money.
greed greed greed.
Those who suffer are looked down on. those who are to care for those suffering usually are in it for profit profit profit.
Where has empathy gone?
Where has people bonding together to help one another gone? Was it ever there? Mankind is simultaneously beyond evolved yet mindless as single celled amoebas because of greed, money and profit.
Is there any fixing of this? Is there any place in the world NOT corrupt where folks can live and feel HUMAN like they matter???
I'm glad and sad I woke up.
I stay optimistic best I can, I uphold to empathy and integrity. I help others see the positive in life...... but sometimes the state of the world drains me to a deep soul-felt sadness.
we are all human. we all bleed red, all have hopes, dreams, feel pain, cry and laugh, love, hate..... we all started as innocent children. Then money becomes part of our life. greed and corruption takes over. We forget we are of the same genetic make- up in how we are made.
so sad. I oft times wish I could pull my wool back on and feel 'safe' that my govt has my best interests at heart and they are doing all to keep me safe and alive.
instead its the other way. even regular Joes can't be trusted. I've had ex coworkers smile to my face and screw me behind my back. some have family do that to them.
what have we become?
I am heartbroken and if I could change my ats name, it would be to that word: Heartbroken for Humanity.
thanks for letting me chit chat here.

Well I got my Bloodstock ticket the moment that this years ones became available, since I go every year. It is just superior to the other British metal festivals in my opinion. I am stoked to see Emperor of course, but I would not have been able to afford to go to any of the other dates on their calendar.
But if you end up at Bloodstock, rather than Wacken, Hellfest, or one of their non-festival dates, then I will see you there man!
@ OP: See? We come together in the strangest and most random of ways!

Ignorance is bliss, so they say. Unfortunately, short of a lobotomy, no real way to go back either... Once you've been down the rabbit hole, it forever changes you. Once aware, we cannot become unaware or simply ignore all the puppet masters and their strings.
