Blog|10 Facts About Society That We Accept As Normal #W2TM

When you take a moment and look around at the world, things can appear pretty messed up. Take 5 or 10 minutes and watch the 6 o’clock news. Chances are, the entire time, all you are going to see is war, conflict, death, illness, etc. Sure, this is part of the mainstream medias content strategy to sell drama and keep people focused on it, but besides that it reveals something real about the current state of our world.

  1. We prioritize money and the economy over basics like air, water, food quality, our environment and our communities.
  2. We utilize an economic trading system that facilitates the death of millions of people each year.
  3. We divide the worlds land into sections and then fight over who owns these sections.
  4. We call some people “soldiers” which makes it OK for them to kill other people.
  5. We torture and kill millions of animals everyday needlessly for food, clothing and experiments.
  6. We send children to school for their entire childhood to memorize facts and skills that they will rarely use.
  7. We impose financial pressures on parents, forcing them to miss out on vital stages of their child’s development.
  8. We have thousands of religions, each one believing that their God or god-story is the only true and unique version.
  9. Love and compassion, which promotes life, are mocked as facile. Whereas war, which harms life, is seen as honorable.
  10. Anyone with a really useful invention, can forcefully prevent others from using or modifying it.

What would your world look like?

tumblr_midg8lpVXh1s32c63o1_500*this series is in part for whoever chooses to read it, but also for me to take my own advice.*

personally, i am a believer in the unlimited power of the universe, as well as the law of attraction(positivity begets more positivity, etc.), but sometimes you simply cannot avoid the negatives in this thing we call life. to truly exile something permanently in a healthy manner you’ve gotta first understand how removing it from who you are will be beneficial, and why it’s simply not for you anymore. so i’ve decided to comprise a list of things that i feel aren’t necessary in my life or anyone else’s, some you just have to learn to work to your advantage, some you can completely remove with effort, so without further adieu…

1. Facebook is boring and a waste of time.

sure being in absolute contact with people you haven’t physically seen in person for 2+years is nice but once you suppress your inner-most desires to know EVERYTHING EVERYONE’s you may realize you only open FaceBook when you want to take an unnecessary break from work you should be doing, or after you’ve opened every top WTF thread on Reddit. just log out

2. The world works, in large part, by manipulation

the sooner you realize the world is set up in such a way that in order survive in a contemporary manner you basically must provide some sort of service without join into the very large grey area of that subject. just never let them put shackles on you, not a good look

3. Make mistakes NOW.

no one truly knows but i’d be willing to bet fucking up has led to the greatest wonders this world has ever known. making mistakes later in life comes at a much heavier price i feel. i personally know this is a very tricky subject, especially for those in the post high school pre-20s age group. i’m just going to keep being me, whatever happens, happens
