All of us like to believe that it is going to be alright. We get up in the morning, brush our teeth, comb our hair, have that first cup of coffee, and then we sit back and relax….(thought) same shit different day. Kind of funny when you think about it.
Our lives are pretty much managed from birth to beyond. But not yours right. You make the decisions in your life, right ? Please, just keep reading. When someone says addiction to you, what is your first thought ? What is the image that pops into your mind ? Drugs, alcohol, an old wino in the alley, a kid with a needle still sticking out of his arm, those shady characters standing in the shadows smoking….. something ?
There are all sorts of addictions.
Drugs come in many forms.
People stand in line, overnight, for the opening of a store, or to buy the latest ithingie. Here’s something for all of you pompous asses that think you aren’t an addict: Disconnect from Facebook, and Twitter for three days. Don’t log in, don’t look over someone’s shoulder, or over the cubicle wall. No contact. Just for three days. After you have done that, take a look at the rest of us morons who do the very same thing. Take a look at the chaotic, and unbelievable garbage that “they” (whoever “they” ….. are) cram down our throats 24/7.
And the worst of all…..
We believe it.
And why is that.
I don’t know what the answer is, but I do know that something either has to change….. or we as humans, are going to go by the wayside.
We either ban war, or embrace war.
You want to stop violence ? Ban everything “above” an assault rifle. Because that is where the problem lies. I haven’t seen anyone shoot down a plane traveling at 35,000 ft. with a handgun, while standing on the ground. How would we even begin such a monumental task you ask ? How about we dismantle all of the manufacturing facilities. It really wouldn’t be that difficult. * <<<< seriously, an asterisk
*except for the fact that there are people/corporations/governments making billions of dollars off of arms sales.
Wait, what are you talking about ? You can’t be suggesting that we outlaw mass destruction ? I mean, look at all of the jobs that would be lost. And how would we defend ourselves ? Nobody in their right mind would go for this. You would have to be insane to want to do something like that.
Well that is certainly one way to look at it. It would definitely be a challenge. You would have to find things that all of these talented people could do. We take our best and brightest and put them to work in finding better ways to destroy our enemy before our enemies best and brightest find a way to destroy us. And we try to do it in the least damaging to the environment. Otherwise, what are we fighting for ? So yes, you would have to find something “con” structive instead of “de” structive for all of these people to do.
The best and the brightest.
Think of all the money you would now have for research instead of war. For feeding instead of genocide. For positive instead of negative. But, you are probably right …… only an insane person would want that, and think that you could actually obtain it by peaceful, cooperative means. Silly me, what was I thinking ?
