Believe me, I think about it all the time.
But without beliefs and morals, what are we?
Trick is, we have to find a fine line between honorable morality and discriminative beliefs (hateful atheists, hateful Bible thumpers, adamant
republicans, democrats, liberals and conservatives, one race vs another, one gender vs another, gay vs straight, pro gun vs pro gun control, etc
etc)... there are a million sides to take, all of bias, and usually pretty angry intent.
A lot of beliefs distributed mainstream are adopted by people, and these people swallow it up and incorporate it into themselves in order to mold some
type of personality for themselves, because most people nowadays can't think beyond whats on the television, and can't take the responsibility to
make their OWN personality, and conquer their own cognitive abilities rather than letting someone or something else do it for them.
We're also under a generation of apathetic babies, who have apathetic parents, and parents are supposed to be the role models--the standard for a
kid's personality building. With broken parents, we have broken kids, and their parents are replaced by mainstream television, music, and ideals, and
This gives the powers the ability to mold our newer generations into moral-deprived, apathetic, selfish losers.
Demoralization, divide and conquer, etc etc.
Those ideals that people lazily adopt are not real beliefs, and don't confuse them as such.
Racism, sexism, politics, religions and etc are sides that they PUT before you, hoping you'll pick one, then squabble with the other pointless sides
while more important things are happening blind to your attention.
The difference between right and wrong should be very clear.
But because of the bumbardment and confusion manifested by all these ignorant ideals being passed around, its getting harder and harder for the
average person to see.
If you don't rely on yourself to mold yourself and all your beliefs and thoughts, you are doomed.
End of story.
