Losing faith in humanity... * 1
    #571079 - 07/10/11 05:05 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

The more I come to understand in general, and about the way things work, the more and more difficult it becomes for me to live amongst other people.. Ever since 7th grade, I slowly began to understand more and more about how most people really are.. Petty, greedy, untrustworthy, parasitic animals, the things people are capable of to fill their selfish needs never ceases to amaze me... The majority of the population practically runs around trying to indirectly torture and kill each other under each others noses to fill their selfish needs..

We live in a world where corruption is the best way to make a profit, and honesty is practically counter-productive.. There will always be some cretin to twist or ruin something good and decent to gain something for themselves. I met some journalists here in Ukraine that get jobs at various production jobs around here and other places in the world and document what they find.. One of them worked at an ice cream factory where he didn't see a single sign of milk or dairy for the entire 3 months that he worked there.. People who bond external fats and liquids to milk with fucking laundry detergent.. Factories that make sausages with no meat involved..

Many, many people are fully capable of practically any injustice imaginable simply to make some money.. Whether they slowly poison people through their food or go out and get paid to murder people. Money breeds corruption, and the majority of people have adapted to that without a second thought. So many people are so ridiculously easy to manipulate.. It's disgusting.. How the hell can people be helped..? If this is really what the majority of them has come to accept..? And it's not like these horrible conditions were just dropped on us.. There are people who wanted everything to be exactly the way it is.. Society for the most part just seems like a better way of sugar coating how selfish, greedy, and parasitic a large part of our population really is.... :nonono:

Mars looked at earth and asked: Hey dude are you feeling alright?
Earth: No... I think I am sick... I caught humanity...
Mars: Don't worry... it will end up killing itself, should be gone pretty soon.

Pour un instant, j'ai respiré très fort
Ça m'a permis de visiter mon corps
Des inconnus vivent en roi chez moi
Moi qui avait accepté leurs lois
J'ai perdu mon temps à gagner du temps
J'ai besoin de me trouver une histoire à me conter
Pour instant j'ai oublié mon nom
Harmonium - Pour un instant

I have to believe that people are inherently good. It makes me feel better.

All you can really do is strive to be the person you want to be. Surround yourself with people who have the same mind set as you, and appreciate it. Doing so might involve cutting off connection with friends and family...but in the end, I think its for the better.

Its difficult being an intelligent person in a world full of idiots. And I don't even mean book smart. Or street smart. I mean intelligent enough to know that life ISN'T about fame or fortune, but the good times you have and the people you touch.

Make it your goal every day to brighten someone elses day. If every person in the whole world did that, it would be a wonderful place to live in.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Yeah, that's the only option there really is. Glad to not be the only one who sees it.

Thats the most important thing - to know you're not alone. When you're surrounded by people caught up in lifes rat race its hard to remember that other people feel just like you man. :thumbup:

It is a sad time when an individual realises that this is in fact true. Welcome to the club.

Your choosing to focus on the negative while ignoring the positive. Change your focus, and your world changes with it.

Don't lose faith in humanity, we have all been taught since birth that our success is measured by the size of our wallets or how much materialistic stuff we own.
This is not success, this is failure to escape a corrupt system that benefits a few in the eye on top of the pyramid.
We can't expect people to be fair in a system were to succeed, you have to turn a profit, corruption will always be there until we the people can change the way we think.
We need a revolution, but not in blood and violence, we need one in our minds, the way we live and educate.
This is the hardest revolution to fight for, but it can be done.

So please don't give up, fight.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:
