Has everyone gone crazy?

I've been reading quite a few threads here on ATS, I've been following the news online and on TV, and I've been reading a bunch of blogs and I've been looking at different political forums over the past few years and I've come to the conclusion that everyone has gone crazy. That's right. Even I am crazy. You're crazy. Your girlfriend is probably crazy. Your boyfriend is probably crazy too (if you're a girl). We're all crazy!

I don't think anything makes sense anymore. We're all spoonfed information from the media. Politics has become a form of entertainment. We are trained in schools to get an education and then we're going to be slaves later on in life. Even though slavery was abolished by the constitution we're going to be working for the rest of our lives. I don't consider it exactly slavery since we're choosing to do what we want to do... but for most of the population in all honesty they won't get to do much later on with their lives.

We have a broken home market. We have a broken financial system (when I speak of we I mean globally, not just the US). Elites are constantly oppressing the masses and when they aren't oppressing the masses they're always lying to the people or they're making false promises. People believe the elites and report on what they say as if they really mean what they say. Everyone knows they're liars... but they don't care.

Everyone's obsessed with movies, music, and television. If we don't have these technologies life would be dull and boring. More people are reading books now because of devices like the kindle and the ipad but at the same time less people including myself are purchasing physical books. People are only becoming aware of the US's warcrimes and the crimes of other nations through wikileaks, as if they couldn't have thought of it before. I'm supportive of wikileaks... but some people are just hearing about all this now.

Corporations can get away with lying and exploiting everyone else. They aren't even exploiting other people anymore. People seem to want buy just anything from corporations. We've been spoonfed a society full of material things as if material things were the only important thing out there. I like material things too and I find myself wanting to buy material things from corporations... even though I know that material things aren't the most important thing in life. I'm not saying it's not necessarily a bad thing to provide services to the people, but that it's become so connected with our life.

We're told that if we don't have Obamacare that health care costs will skyrocket... that the private health care industry adds a lot to our national debt. We're told that the health care industry is private yet it's done very much along state lines... it's not a true free market health care system. They're just a bunch of cartels, and Republicans and certain libertarians guard against Obamacare because they believe it will bring socialism, when that kind of government-business partnership (fascism) is already here! They think that they're defending the free-market but they're really just defending a state-run health care system. That's kind of Orwellian, isn't it?

We're fighting a bunch of foreign wars. No one seems to know when they'll all end. Our government is setting up body-scanners to give people the illusion of protection. If you don't accept them you'll get groped in the crotch.

Obama is blocking other nations from prosecuting the Bush war crimes. Obama wants to keep all the Bush powers and he is even expanding his powers to be even more...

I ask you, has everyone gone crazy? Has our political system gone insane? Are there any sane people left? Is there anyone who is really consistent out there? When will we ever snap out of this? What has come to the world?

If you were surprised by this at all, you are ignorant...or just woke up.

Those of us with our reasoning and critical thinking skills intact were expecting just that.

I've known that for quite some time. I've been awake for the past year or so. I just think the whole world is crazy. That includes you and me and everyone else. Even though we claim we are awake we always end up discussing the non-issues with the people who really seem to care about them. We are always discussing things that don't make sense... and we're always bringing up the same issues over and over again in the hope that it'll bring up awareness to other people. You see, we're kind of crazy just like everyone else.

I know I am crazy. I love to talk off subject ATS stuff with asleep people at work. They look at me like I am nuts. When the whole time they are the one's that are living in a perfect society dream. It is all about what you wear, what you drive, and what sports you watch, which is social status. I think it is laughable anymore. Like the other poster replied, hang on for the ride.

Yeah. That's pretty much where I'm at right now. I mean I've always known that everything is kind of silly... like it's about what cars you have, about clothes you have, what kind of television set you own. You pretty much either fit in or you don't. It's kind of an oppressive system to live in... so even if you don't like having these things, or you think life is pointless, than you won't get far.

Perhaps the suspected collective madness is a true canary in the coal mine and the worse it gets means we are moving closer to real change, and hopefully that will be a change for the better. Only way is up?
Cya at rock bottom....

Been avoiding main stream thinking since '76...live in the country where at least there's a chance.

"That’s the signpost up ahead ... your next stop: ‘The Twilight Zone'"

Something is making everything and everyone go crazy. More and more people are waking up and seeing it each day. But I fear it is too late as we too are not part of the madness.
So I am afraid the answer to your question is YES
