I believe it's spelled whiners. That's not a very compassionate thought. Some people don't believe they can do things for themselves, and it's
very hard to get out of that state of mind. It's the same with being a Christian, a patriot, a person with OCD, a workoholic, a pot head... its
relentlessly hanging onto what is comfortable. A person used to comfort is going to most likely annoy a person who's used to discomfort, because
they've developed different ways of achieving things. Does that mean that they deserve to die because you deem them as weak? Are you sure nature
agrees with your definition of weakness? Man oh man, guy whining about whiners, I think you would do well... as possibly a pharaoh in Ancient Egypt,
or possibly a Nazi.
As for the original poster... I hear you loud and clear. I wrote a similar post on here, except maybe a bit more explosive, in my first month or so on
this site. I kind of agree with NoHup... whoa I agree with NoHup... awesome....
But yes, I don't have anything to live for if I don't have a dream to pursue. My dream is music. I'm making music on my own terms with my best
friend, and we're trying to change things one song at a time. One show at a time. One ear at a time, ya know?
If you follow your dreams and MAKE SURE that your job and/or money never take over presedence in your life, even with what little free time you may
have, I think you'll find yourself working towards achieving your ultimate goal without even knowing it. It doesn't take much effort to make what
you love work. It takes patience.... and sometimes, you really gotta bite your tounge and try not to sabotage everything because, as much as money and
monotony sucks, nowadays it takes a little playing into the system to get your room for rebellion against it. How can you rebel against the system
when you're busy thinking up new ways to get food and shelter everyday?
People think I am for anarchy. I am not! I mention "Patriotism is kind of a lame thing" and everybody automatically assumes I'm some terrorist
anarchist punk. All I ask is for people to really just think a little deeper about what it is they really want, and if they truly are getting it with
their current belief system? Just to live with a little more thought behind action ... not be so brainless to just accept what happens to them, and
not believe that it's just as simple as cause-effect-bam that's the way it is.
More and more people everyday are realizing how devoid of thought our actions are becoming, what with the expansion of technology and the ever
increasing demand for ever increasing convenience and speed, and I'm happy for that. Moving too fast is our problem right down to the T. I conclude
that, if we just took more time to think, businesses wouldn't always be trying to streamline and cut costs and improve efficiency, and therefore the
atmospheres would be much more open. Less employment to manage, employees that are trained in ALL aspects of the business, more diversified
workdays.... Hell, if a company would take the time and money to train employees properly, I think that's a great little start. I think an employee
that has room to move around is a happier employee.
We don't need to eliminate work. We just need to make work rewarding and interesting, like they half assedly attempt to do with learning in schools
(except maybe a little better than half assed).
People just need to slow down. We're moving too fast. When you move fast, you miss the details....and the details are the most important part.
