You ever have one of those days and you look at the world around you and say “What the Fuck!” Going through Blogs today and seeing rants about religion and politics – child killing and mistrials – global warming and genocide – corporate malfeasants – war and soldiers dying – government corruption – pandemics and environmental destruction; and in general stupid people doing stupid things.
The fact is that 400 children die every hour from cholera, typhoid fever, dysentery, hepatitis; every year millions of people – most are children – die from starvation; there is a rape every three minutes and a murder every twelve minutes. These are things we could correct, but we don’t give a fuck. We are focused on petty politics, inconsequential news and sports.
You get what you pay for; or in this case you get what you deserve. We celebrate death and war, we focus on the trivial, we make up gods to tell ourselves we are special and we ignore what we don’t wish to deal with.
The human race is a producer – but other than the ability to make things we are a pitiful and destructive life form. In fact we have produced ourselves into a technological dark age where common sense and basic intelligence no longer applies. We walk around with cell phones and i-pads absorbed in the fantasy world of the World Wide Web.
We need to go out and touch base with reality: do physical work – fuck somebody – get drunk. I think that’s a prescription I need.
Have a good day
