Alright, I've been wanting to write this for a while...so here I go. It probably won't make any sense, buuutt..oh well haha.
Is it seriously going to take an asteroid to fall from the sky and obliterate half of the world's population to bring us together, for all humans to live in harmony? It's almost funny now..it's like a sitcom of sorts. Remember 9/11? I remember where I was when it happened...and I remember what I did the second I got home from school. I turned on CNN, to see what the deal was. Aside from the footage of the towers collapsing on repeat, there were images of people holding eachother in their embrace..people of different ethnicities, different faiths, people from all walks of life...caring for eachother. People converged on candlelight vigils to mourn their losses. People loved people that they had never met before. That's great, but why does it take something so tragic to wash away people's self-righteousness and bring us together?
And here we are..
4 years later, with our heads stuck, suffocating in the same festering pile of bullshit that we were pre-9/11. It's pathetic...We are at a war, with no positive or clear objective. We've got MTV programming our community's robotic youth with images of ever-so wholesome rappers on screen parading around with their fashion confederacy, guns, escalades, gang signs, you name it. People voting a blind president, whose ideals are totally contradictory to what is stated in the Constitution and Declaration, into a second term. What's the matter with us? It surely isn't in the air or water..
The problem is, well, ourselves.
We seem to have lost track of time, we're out of focus...we're in an age now where humans are so much more capable of achieving things far beyond our own expectations...but none of this can happen, because humans refuse to let go of their selfishness, ostentation, and insensitivity towards the quality of life that is on the table for us. Religion is so obscure nowadays, it's almost nonsensical to even have a faith now, since it's not doing much more than segregating people..have any of you walked around in downtown SLC on New Years, and seen the masses of people accumulate on the corner, bickering about which god exists, who's church is 'true'? Now, I'm not a believer..but if god was going to save us, he would have been here by now. He wouldn't have let things get so out of hand, that humans feel the need to exterminate eachother to come to a resolve.
I know a lot of this doesn't even make sense...I just felt I had to state an opinion on the matter. I'm almost to the point where I wish Earth would just implode...think of how much more peaceful it would be. No more ignorance, arrogance, corruption, aversion, materialism, or egotism would exist in our little corner of the universe.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
