I don't even know how to properly word my sorrow for humanity. A lot of times i say "we need to change" or "people need to rise up together" but
now I don't even think that will do anything. But like i said. I don't know how to properly word this. So I'm just going to list off some things we
do that make me feel ill.
- I hate war. I fund war. not by choice. but my taxes do it for me. I wish that the world would just abolish the military. and destroy all of its
"instruments". The money from taxes that we spend on military interests could abolish hunger, fund research for cures for diseases, make clean
energy possible, etc.
Don't give me the "cats and dogs fight all the time" argument. cats and dogs are primal animals. we are the adults of this planet and we should
behave as such. If we got rid of the military/weapons. wars would be nothing more than street fights/ riots. sounds bad. but its a lot better than the
atrocious acts one human inflicts on another daily in war.
FALSE FLAG ATTACKS.
- Are we so sick a species that we really need to do these things? causing problems to cause more problems to gain more power. Makes me want to cry
that people actually consider this tactic... and act it out...
-so what, your telling me that I can carry around a device in my pocket that can instantly connect me to the rest of the world, as well as take
pictures, video, audio, GPS, send files, receive files, but were killing our planet because we cant come up with something better than burning
fossil's to power machines?
We all know there are solutions, but money talks and the ones with money don't want us to talk. they just want to rule a market. regardless of the
planet. How can someone rather have money than a healthy environment for our species? I can't grasp this mindset.
THE MODERN AGE
We've only been a "modern" society for about 100 years. And already I'm afraid to have children because of what kind of world they may live in.
What's the world going to be like in another 100 years? What kind of legacy will we leave in our galaxy? I don't know about you but I don't want us
to be remembered as the dumb species that destroyed themselves quicker than It took them to discover fire...
Along with the modern age comes convenience, convenience of food, cleaning, transportation, and basically every other aspect of our lives. But where
you find convenience, you will usually find a chemical thats not good for you. or if theres no chemical, you find something that spoils you and makes
you a lazy brat.
And while we complain about how inconvenient some things still are, or how complicated and stressful our lives are. there are children dieing because
they don't have clean water or food. The basic right of every person should be food and water.
How can we let our own kind die of hunger and thirst while we watch T.V, throw away food, spend our money on intoxicating substances and useless
products, take 3 showers a day, water our lawns, buy clothing and accessories for stupid stupid prices because of the brand name.... how can we do
WHAT AM I DOING ABOUT IT.
Nothing. What can I do? I cant even find a job right now. maybe if we had less technology more people would be able to work and have money to help. We
live in a world where proficiency and productivity takes priority over jobs.
Thankfully my family is nice enough to look after me while i'm jobless, Why can't we have the same sort of family compassion for everyone?
I don't see a bright future for our species. Its not a problem caused by money, war, whatever, the problem is in the hearts and minds of us as a
whole. And with the education system being what it is... I just don't see any change coming soon.
