The Real World
This is my commentary on all the things wrong with the world. In order to fix these things, either 2 things need to happen, only one of which will if history is any judge. Either the governments fix the problems, by working together to discuss real solutions, or the people rise up, to discuss those things. Capitalism does not work. It does not take into account those born in worlds with little privilege. And it does not take into account those who are not as aggressive or opportunistic as others, or those who simply want to live a life without having to hear about war and violence in the news, EVERY SINGLE FUCKING DAY!
I don't want to live in a world with apartheid and war. I don't want to live in a world with state sanctioned murder. I don't want to live in a world were people have to go to jail for growing a plant, that has existed in this world for thousands of years. I don't want to live in world where homeless, people identifying as LBGT, indigenous, and other minorities are marginalized, demeaned, and kicked down, forcing them to engage in behaviours most would rather not think about.
Living on the street, or quite near to it, presents some difficult problems for most people. If you've never had to do it, then you've never had a life where you've had to live hand to mouth, because it can be so difficult to get oneself out of the rut. Our society presents, sometimes unreasonable and irrational mountains of bureaucracy and paperwork. All so that they can track you, figure out your habits, and "fix" you. Assuming the problem is really yours to begin with. I have a theory, and that is, that world we live in, produces people with mental illness, and the more our society gets sick, the more mentally ill it will produce.
We want happy mindless drones, who are ecstatic to go to work everyday, 40-50 hours a week or more, so that we can have the "good" things. But some choose to live a different life. Some don't have a choice. They never had any privilege to utilize, so their work was always lesser. Never able to get a job that had any real chance of advancement, never had enough money to go to school, and because of some idiotic assinine reason, they can't get a student loan, or their parents kicked them out because they were LBGT. So, eventually, they find their way to the street. Because they never stood a chance in the cutthroat world of ignorance and apathy we live in. Maybe they'll get lucky, and find some way out, without having to spend a lot of time in the shelters, or on a grate. Maybe they won't, and find themselves in a seemingly never ending cycle of depression and sadness. The cycle can be broken, but sometimes it becomes too much for people, and they find their way into drugs and/or alcohol. And then the real suffering happens. T
I just read an article, in which it was stated that public services were being used by homeless people. Oh no, they want water? Or electricity to charge their phones? What the flying fuck? Why does this city show such a complete lack of compassion for those who have found themselves in a bad situation? So they used a hose... Instead of forcing them out, let them use it. Just because you don't want to see them, doesn't mean they don't exist, and it doesn't mean you have to exercise you privilege of actually owning a house, by denying them the use of a water spout. Your water and electricity too good for the homeless? You're going to begrudge them a few amps of electricity? Oh no, 1000$ of the cities budget goes to keeping the homeless people connected to the outside world. OH NO!! A drop in the bucket of what the city spends in electric bills each month.
To those of you who would call this stealing, I urge you to think about where you're getting that oil. And how many people have died, and are still dying, so that your selfish ass can drive around all day, use a computer, have nice electronic toys. Ya, guess what? I got them too. But at least I am fully willing to acknowledge the fact that people died so that the governments who have more money, can have these things, and I work actively against those using violence as a means to aquire oil and land and "prestige." Remember Obama won the fucking peace prize, which imo opinion, forever tarnishs it(not that Nobel's discovery's were all that peaceful, I wonder sometimes how he lived with himself)btw, Bradley Manning has done more to deserve the peace prize, than the warmongers in the whitehouse ever did.
But no, our gov'ts have to KILL FOR DEMOCKERY! Lets go into countries halfway across the world, that have no real logistical way of attacking us, and bomb the civilian population until the leaders are either dead or surrender and agree to give us their oil and resources. Instead of giving them fair trade, send in multi national contractors, to exploit the earth, take the blood soaked prizes, for their own monetary benefit, and arguably our own, the sycophantic peasants in this equation.
Yes, that is your status. We are ruled in a constitutional monarchy, where ultimately, every single piece of our legislation is signed by the"queens" representative. Why do we have to ask some shithead figurehead giving her royal assent for everything that gets passed? oh, right, so some dumbass has a job, and the queen gets to claim the land as her own, when, once you take away the money, all your left with is some hag, and no real power, exercising her royal privilege to make sure her, her cronies, and her blue blooded warmongering shite families, get a free ride on the backs of the people working their asses for less and less and less.
Anyway, the real point of all this, is to point out the single largest, most glaring flaw there exists in society. That is, the gross and unconscionable apathy, and complete derision of anything that might upset the oh so precious status quo. And I'm sick and tired of the masses who continue to display such a callous, privileged, and sociopathic point of view, or at the very least, do nothing to stop shitfaces in power who allow such things to occur, and directly influence and action policies, which do nothing for the people they are supposed to represent, but in fact, represent those who have paid the most money. It is time for this to stop. It is time for the people to stand against those who would oppress them, before it's too late.
