I wonder if the world has lost it's mind at times....
We watch as religion continues to equal the killing of others. We watch as science is discarded unless it is the only way to save our own lives. We watch as politicians lie to us or shoot each other down over issues that have nothing to do with the people who will be effected by the winner. We watch as big business kills a portion of our planet, all because of the bottom line, then they lie in our faces about the effects. We watch as our social programs fall flat yet a guy who hits a ball, or can throw one into a hole gain money and waste it on houses they will never call home. We watch as actors gain an ego boost and cash value far past what they could ever need yet still they complain because they are not making enough.
We watch as those same famous people say things that will have grave consequences on others when they have no idea what the hell they are talking about. We allow the rich to buy our media outlets and dictate what we will see. We morn the icons as they pass away yet we allow the young and old to die with no mention, or action on our part to stop it at all. We sit in front of our fucking television sets on nice soft chairs and shake our heads while our lips stay closed and our hands are clasped on a remote control rather then doing something to help. We complain about the way our leader can't do enough fast enough while we are too busy to vote or even
write a letter so he can know how we feel.
We have become a nation of spoiled brats.
We watch as gays are beaten by others and we do nothing but watch...We watch as the rights of others are stripped away thinking 'those actions have nothing to do with me', when the same is done to us we wonder why no one else cares.
We have become a nation who lives in a bubble of ignorance.
We have allowed an invisible force to stifle our progression on science and social issues, that same force has also given us a reason to kill those who disagree with us.
We are too busy working to live our own lives. We are too caught up to even pay attention
whether our kids are being taught well,or who their friends are.
We are a nation lost in ourselves with no active interest in our world.
We spend more time worried about how others view us than thinking about how we see ourselves.
The only way this is going to change is if we spend more time looking in the mirror instead of judging the reflections of others as we complain about the glass being dirty.
