That is exactly what I am ranting about. I don't even know why, I just want to rant.
I hear these cliché questions and statements in almost every thread on ATS. Questions like:
"What's going on with the world?"
"What is wrong with the world today?"
"What is happening to this world?"
Why do you even ask that? You know damn well what's going on with the world. It's crazy. It's a chaotic, hate-filled, murderous, money-worshipping,
endless river of misery and dispair. This isn't new either. It's always been crazy. We have always killed each other, people have always hurt each
other, and evil men have always loved currency.
Now, I'm not going to say an even more cliché statement like "It's time to wake up, people!!!!!" because that pisses me off just as much.
Obviously, it is time to wake up. You are preaching to the choir if you say this on ATS. We know the world is crazy, everyone knows the
world is crazy. It's not like "ding" 2012 is here and suddenly we have to wake up because it's a rightful time to "ascend" by the New Agers. It
has been time to wake up for aloooooong while now.
I'll take my country for example, America. We've been a country for 234 years and have been at or involved with war for 214 years. What would you
say sounds more like a need to "wake up" than that? I quote because, as previously mentioned, the term "wake up" is all too cliché. What does
that even mean any more? That we become aware of the bad things that are happening around us?
Okay, I am aware. Now what? Oh, nothing? Okay.
If you're not going to do anything about your current situation than you might as well just continue sleeping and enjoy it. I'm deadly serious too.
There is no point in "waking up" (whatever that means) if you aren't going to take action.
So, yes, the world is crazy, and, yes, people need to get their act together and step up to the plate, but this is nothing new. It's always been like
this and it will continue to be like this until either we do something or the natural change of the Universe and Mother Nature force a change upon
In the mean time, stop telling me to wake up and stop pretending like our current societal state is anything worse than what it's always been.
