The Death of the Human Race.... In Short....
Well, after taking a 3-person view of my life and others. I was shocked after I thought about it a while.
Your life, dictated by the government, society, media, and rules, has got you set for life.... Let me explain...
You start school in Grade School, your time is constantly filled up with sports, friends, and marketing producing on TV.
Middle School. The work starts to pile on, your still very young, and still involved with sports, friends, and other activities... You still have some
High School. Your real life starts. Your life is entirely consumed with 4 hours of homework everyday, activities, and school that leave you tired,
stressed, and unhappy at the end of the day.
College. Its a society norm to go to college these days, you get there, and are piled on by what your suppose to absorb in the short amount of time.
You work very hard, and use up most of it on work related items, when not, you are most likely high, drunk, wasted, and at a party.
Life After college. College Ends. Your stuck at a dead-end job, getting a low pay while still working hard, you work and work and work. You may find a
decent career path.
Career. You start your life. You get a 'real' job which requires not just punching the card in and out everyday but to actually complete the job and
do a good job. Your entire life is consumed with this task 14 hours and day. The rest is spent sleeping or traveling.
Retirement. You finally finish your career, and are ready for a rest, but then you realize you got stuck with a terrible insurance, and retirement
plan and now have no money. You spend the rest of your life working at Walmart or playing in a band somewhere to make some money to live on.
There you go. I just fit 95% of the average American's life in a few short paragraphs. That's pathetic. It all starts in High school, when your
trained like rodents to work until you drop dead. My version of life is not that. Not working until you die, but gaining and learning information to
make something productive at it. Its a terrible life if you didn't learn anything.
The sad thing is that no one cares. Anyone at any level cannot control every single stage of life to make a difference. But you. As I said, it all
starts in High School homework. I briefly saw a thread labeled about stopping homework. I agree.
This may sound like a lazy high school student saying, but, Homework is the death of everything.
1. Homework trains you to work hard, so you can be a slave for the rest of your life.
2. Homework leads to pointless conclusions, and you did not learn anything practical.
It all starts with the education and our mindset, they need to change. You can't change the outcome if you don't try something different. That is
why I propose a change in today's modern society.
Break free from the bonds of slavery. Don't do what society says. Run your own life doing what you like doing! Don't get that dead-end job.
Any high school er who read this: It all a big joke. Take school seriously, but think that homework is not mandatory, it will set your lifestyle!
It will change you permanently. The education they give you is not enough, learn more than required.
Just a few comments to make people more aware.
