Rant #3

“Prejudices are what fools use for reason.”
― Voltaire

Nationality has risen to near disgusting levels within our minds that spans the globe. What we do is based on our jobs and who we are is based on our work. At least this is the general mindset with in the boundary of this country deemed itself "United". Many within my generation have called the current feeling a great awakening, a change in the way we think, act and view ourselves in the world rather then groups of people separated by boundaries, faith and economics. We are one species more then separate groups. There maybe a twinkle of that there but there is a long way to go before that idea maybe truth. Living in a group of people that are incredibly self-important and self-satisfied, though I have more sympathy for those how are always struggling to survive and are actively becoming more sufficient in swaying general thought on the lifestyle of simplicity. To humble ourselves to live more simple would better our world as a whole but are people willing to step down from the throne of instant gratification and the pedestal of luxury?

"I am truly free only when all human beings, men and women, are equally free. The freedom of other men, far from negating or limiting my freedom, is, on the contrary, its necessary premise and confirmation."
-Mikhail Bakunin

Equality only rules for the people who will take charge of their own lives.  To live with no regret, with no restrictions and realize that our own entities owe nothing to anyone but ourselves. It is to be realistic and idealistic at the same time. Everything that our world has given us will fall into decay, our planet will continue continue on; even if we are not apart of it. To take responsibility for who we are is the strongest path to a more sustainable future. No Gods. No Masters.

Ranting #1

After many months of internal debate, I have come to embrace my misanthropic nature. . Socially, many people are choosing to close themselves and activity ignore the facts that are coming forth of what our civilizations technological rise is doing to our home, to our minds and bodies. Our civilization has run it's course and we must choose to either embrace living more sustainable lives by stepping back from how much we consume or to seek ways of controlling the very nature of humanity itself which leads down a slippery slope of tyranny and fear. At least these are the choices that are running through my mind being aware of historical pasts of power struggles in a society in decline. A few headlines in the news were heart warming, such as the state I live in now allowing homosexual marriage, finally some people standing up and releasing the information of government corruption that we all knew was already there and the general pubic starting to understand that it does not matter who is in power anymore, they all lie and power kills.

Then again, the world is always ending for someone.
