a reply to: onequestion
This is something I wrote approximately December 2013:
"f I didn't have the precise mixture of people that I did before I went into foster care, I may have believed the whole world was filled with monsters
wearing human masks. Good and evil; altruism and stoicism; right and left; nature vs nurture... How do we define these qualities but with a bunch of
other subjective and wishy-washy useless conjecture. We strive to be different, unique... We strive to fit in, be popular. Yet we shun what is
different. We praise and extol the virtues of freedom, liberty, justice for all.... but we let our officials lie/cheat/steal/sell us. We are scared of
a proverbial boogeyman when we are a race of boogeymen. Individuals, hardly aware of the far-reaching implications of our actions and inactions. We
would "Never Forget" those people in the towers, but we *will* forget the people we send in to other countries to "bring them democracy". How many
lives have been changed by war? Poverty? Inability to allow people to be equal, though different. I find it humorous that we have weapons capable of
destroying entire cities, but in those same cities... people aren't allowed to feed the homeless. People are allowed to drink and smoke, but only what
the government says is okay. We live in an age where technology is far outpacing morality. Two hundred years ago (that's ~4 human lives) we had
people in bondage, doing our work. We still do. The chains are intangible now, but they exist. We let the fear of the unknown guide our actions and
thoughts. We wage war to defend our freedoms and way of life.
People seem to think the world should view the way things they do and only that way. We are a planet full of "this is convenient, # the consequences"
types. If we weren't , we wouldn't drive cars that destroy the environment, or buy a new phone every year. We might actually begin to think about what
we could do for each other instead of ourselves. A fool's dream, but so is hoping that things fix themselves after we've come and shat on the dinner
table. Ignoring the elephant in the room can occasionally cause the elephant to have a tantrum.
We don't see the power we have, just the power that we perceive that we cannot work against. "It's too late" "We can't possibly hope to do anything
about it". You cannot save the world as an individual, but you can save the world of many individuals."
I hope you can see how it's related. I have a lot of writing (a metric frackton), and I want to write about my life. Writing seems to be the last
thing I have, and if I could just get a YEAR of stability... a bed to sleep in... I believe I could accomplish it. I have a lot to say about a lot of
things, I guess.
