It seems like the longer I have to remain on this planet, the less I can stand existing here, and the more the surrounding "people" (if they can be
called that) get on my nerves.
I have neighbourgs, who have noisy, unruly kids that do not care about any rules. The parents also of course can't raise them properly, so the only
form of discipline is yelling at them (contradictory messages, I might add), after it's already too late. They don't have a doorbell (I have no
idea, why - and it has been like this for over a year), and there are lots of kids living in these buildings, all of which seem to know their kids. No
doorbell means kids banging on their door all day, and when they finally get the door open, they of course leave it open, or half-closed. And of
course the kids won't remain inside (or outside) for long, and they have no consequences for making noise in the hallway, so during the daytime,
reading a book in the living room, or just sitting with my own thoughts - is completely impossible.
The distractions are exactly as awful as any of you might conclude them to be. There are other kids who like bouncing their footballs against my door
(because the neighbourg's door is right next to mine, and there's little room to maneuver, so practically, every day, there is a bunch of noisy
brats assembling in front of my door to make noise of all kinds (from yelling, screaming, and laughing, to stomping and bumping the metal
hand-railings with toys and throwing balls in the hallway and whatnot).
It has been a problem for more than a year, but lately it has gotten worse - or I have gotten more sensitive to it.
There are also neighbourgs living above me who don't generally seem to understand the rules of a western world (yes, they are probably from the
continent that we do not speak of). They have visitors running up and down the stairs all day and most of the night. They have no qualms about talking
with a loud voice and laughing on the balcony after midnight, even when it's not weekend. They have not learned to walk erect without heavily
utilizing heels of their feet, like they want to make sure the floor stays put. No matter what the time, it's "stomp-stomp-stomp-stomp" from the
There was a time, when I could have some peace and quiet, at least during the night - but no more. The kids in the hallway, the neighbourgs above, and
generally the neighbourghood.. I am realizing that I live in a ghetto. And this used to be such a nice place. Kids do anything they want these days,
parents have no control over them, and are completely clueless (as the show 'Supernanny' shows, DESPITE such shows..).
Whenever I try to escape for a trip somewhere, I see dog owners that let their dogs do whatever they want, and almost get into fights with other dogs,
are scared whether I have dogs with me or not (and relieved to hear that I don't), and generally don't seem to ever seek help or information as to
how to properly raise dogs. It's unbelievable. Why don't they just watch a couple of episodes of "Dog Whisperer"? It has been translated to so
many languages, and western libraries probably almost all have some kind of DVD or books of Cesar Millan and/or the show. And yet, these dog owners
just rather remain completely clueless, just like the parents of the kids.
A kid / dog wants something, and the parent / dog owner rushes immediately to give it to him/her. What kind of raising is that, of either a dog or a
kid? Where's the exercize, discipline, affection? Why is it just affection, affection, affection? Where are the rules, boundaries and limitations?
Instead, it's just "I exist to serve the dog/kid"!
If I try to just relax on the balcony or just walk outside, the modern moped-thugs called 'Cessna pilots' are doing their best to ruin my eardrums
and my breathing air, peace and harmony. Every day, all day, and sometimes in the middle of the night.
At 3 am, you can hear the trucks making a lot of noise nearby on a relatively new bit of road.
It's like there is no sanity, harmony, peace, quiet or respect for these things anymore. It's like no one is supposed to ever stop, think and rest -
everything has to be moving all the time, full speed (if not faster), and no one has time to actually learn useful skills (like parenting or dog
ownership/psychology) anymore. But everyone remembers to smoke a lot of cigarettes to ruin the small bit of fresh air I could otherwise have, so I
can't really keep windows or balcony door open for long.
Whenever I try to TALK to one of these so-called "people", things get even crazier.. but you can't really escape that, because the internet is
global, and no matter who you talk to, or where they are located, you are basically talking to the same ten morons with ten slightly different
viewpoints about things. There's the religious nut, the atheist, the hunter, the horror-freak, the politician, the grease monkey, the feminazi, and
so on. It's never any different - the same exact 'types' are found on every continent, it seems. You can travel thousands of miles, and end up
talking to basically the same weird automatons that caused you pain before you left. It's no use. This planet is doomed to be filled with this kind
of stereotyped 'people'.
There's no spark of intelligence, no caring, no real humanity, no pure and correct values. No colors in clothing or vehicles, no curves in building
architecture, and no knowledge about the difference between law and legal system.
There is no deeper pondering about the Universe, no concern about how things are going (except in a generic, learned, vague way), or knowledge about
who pulls the strings, who created money and how it all works.
And there's this blind belief in the 'official story', whether it's the Moon Hoax, UFO phenomenon, Pearl Harbor, Titanic, September WTC controlled
demolition, "Meaning of Person", and so on. Most everyone on this planet simply can't entertain the thought that powerful people might have
gathered together to form a conspiracy. Even the word immediately creates a knee-jerk response.
For a long time, I have wanted to escape to where there's no one in around 10 mile radius. Well, maybe 5 miles would be enough. In any case, some
relatively isolated place, where there's no one in the immediate vicinity, and where I could still reach the grocery store with a small, brisk walk.
But that store would be spoiled by kids and teenagers hanging right next to the entrance, as if they can't really figure out what those doors are
for, and get annoyed if you are trying to get in or out of the store because you need to buy food.
