You Scare Me

As I scan the news, I read the comments from the general public and these are what scare me the most. I expect the media to lie to me, I expect my government to manipulate me and I expect corporations to steal from me. What I can't come to grips with, is how the people simply let it happen and defend it as the best life or system, as compared to ... (insert ism here). In case you haven't noticed - a system based on debt is a form of slavery; this is what YOU are leaving future generations with your blind ACCEPTANCE and refusal of THOUGHT.

Seemingly parroting whatever they are being told, the "productive members of society" defend and justify the actions and foundations of an obviously corrupt pyramid scheme of a system, (which they believe to be "democracy") with obviously programmed responses. When questioned on those responses and confronted with logic, they even succumb to rage in their defense (when defending a defense it never stops). The thing that frightens me though is how they seem to love finding a scapegoat (a perverse need for blame); they revel in it and poke at it until the next one comes along.

In their belligerence they sometimes respond by verbally attacking the messenger of the truth, claiming wrongdoing in one form or another in an effort to discredit the source (scapegoat hunting); all the while screaming PROVE IT. - Stop being ignorant and do your own research as it is all readily available to a mind which is receptive. The problem is that you already limit your sources to so called "experts" (no more thinking to do here) and therefore you create your own blocks. Data, reports, graphs can all be "spun" to reflect a point of view. Dig for truth and find the logic which you seem to have discarded.

Has arrogance, pride and ego taken over all logical thought? Have you so succumbed to laziness that you solely rely on your paid "experts" to tell you how to think and behave? Have you totally lost the ability to feel when something is wrong? Have you lost the ability to see the truth when it is presented to you? This has nothing to do with ego or how it makes you "feel"; it is not the message which makes you feel bad but rather, how you interpret it.

Do you really believe that not only is our system benevolent but that as a forcibly "educated" populous that we are therefore inherently intelligent? WAKE UP! You are not "special". You were never meant to be intelligent. You were destined to be a product of an environment designed to train you to be useful and productive within that environment. You are taught to defend certain "ideals" and be reactionary and apprehensive to the unknown or different, which helps to perpetuate said systems and enforce the confines which it restrains you with; intelligence you must obtain outside of these constraints.

So we (if you really think that not being the U.S. does not involve us, you are delusional) "develop" the world in the "western" image and believe that it is our moral imperative because that is what we are told; we must protect the innocent (well, those with oil).

Do you believe that there are terrorist everywhere so therefore we must give up freedoms in exchange for "security"?

Do you believe that we had to intervene in Libya but we didn't have to in Darfur or, dare I say, Palestine?

Do you believe we are saving the people and not stealing their resources?

Do you believe that we have the right to continually interfere with the "developing world"?

Do you truly believe that we are "free" and that you want everyone else to join and enjoy the fruits of our freedoms? You seem to enjoy telling others to go live somewhere else if they dare challenge your "choice" of freedom or point out the obvious flaws in the logic and morality of a system based on profit, competition and consumption. You also readily say "Well what can we do? It's like that". Are you really free?

"We want solutions", I hear you scream (usually a way to say "if you can't fix it, shut up"). There are plenty of great ideas out there. How about we disconnect from this global game we call "politics" (which revolves around money, status and debt) and we take back this great country we call Canada from the interests of money and give it back to the people (duh democracy, no matter what programmed ism you try to throw at it)?

How about we make things which are essential for survival not about profit (now that would really be protecting the innocent)? How about we build "stuff" for durability instead of for consumption (more simple logic)? How about we make money work for the people instead of the people working for money? It all starts at one place; the people must say ENOUGH B...S...!

I digress, I am tired of seeing the obvious flaws in your logic(sic) and the viciousness and ferocity in which you seem to defend your very ignorance, all the while claiming knowledge by throwing out regurgitated sound bites acquired through a system designed to mislead you and keep you in check in the first place. And you have the audacity to call me arrogant. Admitting ignorance is the first step towards knowledge.

I am tired of having the same arguments, of hearing the same programmed responses, of battling through the same constant defenses in order to see a ray of hope. I am tired of the competitive nature of your "normality" and of your delusions about "saving" or "protecting" everything (as long as it isn't too expensive); all the while speaking gently as not to offend anyone. I can no longer live amongst your blatant stupidity; there has to be a different way. It has gotten to the point where I am ashamed to be human, let alone Canadian.

I don't know what to do anymore. Am I the one who is crazy? Do I believe that I am more intelligent than others? I don't think so but it frustrates me to no end when people project and propagate their obvious ignorance and insecurity at me.

Their need to project intelligence and "save face" when staring down the barrel of logic and comprehension actually impairs their ability to learn; they create their own blocks and a battle of egos ensues. This can best be described as "institutionalized stupidity". When people actually believe that if everyone says it that there must be some truth in it. Am I the only one which recalls learning about Columbus and the "world is flat" incident?

When did "ego" or "self" surpass common sense and humanity? Was it as parents when we started telling our children constantly that they are "special"? When did "what others think of me" become our Achilles heel? Was it in school with the "cool" or "not" distinctions? Is this the future for humanity? A populous which believes it is special, whom always tries to find the "easy way out" and whom demands respect without earning it? Has the concept of respect changed? After all, we seem to believe that getting an education, a job and purchasing a home are all proof of our having "grown up". Are we proud to be a society based on economic variations of "success" which promotes "competition" at all levels?

So we blindly follow the economic trail and as long as we are "comfortable", we accept the controls put upon us at every turn without more than a fleeting question of their validity; always accepting that it is for the best or that one person ruined it for everyone else. Our disdain for our fellow humans is evident as we believe that everyone could succumb to aberrant behavior, so we must always be on our guard. It must be true for why else would we build more and more correctional institutions; and I am the one which is usually portrayed as "dark" or "negative" :-)

Programmed to fear the worst through the propagation of mandatory and "elective" social conditions such as insurance, we gladly hand over our life credits and any decision making under the auspices of security and protection from the terrifying world of "what if". Laws are constantly being enacted to take away any freedoms (to protect us from ourselves) which we may have enjoyed, eroding with it any public resistance as the collective defend their loss of liberties with programmed responses such as "if we let 1 person do it, then everybody will"; conveniently eliminating the need for individual thought because at least "I" had a response and "I" find life comfortable. Why think when it has all been tried and failed and this is the best system?

Being one of the few which seems to see through the obvious lies and manipulations, the fears and control mechanisms which permeate every fiber of our sociological and psychological lives and the constant triggers and reactions of the defensive flock forever defending their ignorance and claiming knowledge; I find myself at odds with the very essence of what it means today to exist. As I witness the never ending emotional and psychological competitions which occur around me, they tear away at any hope and belief in humanity which I may once have held on to; I am, as a result, ashamed to be human.

How can I evolve like this? Where can I go to escape the daily madness which is accepted as "normal"; making me a potentially hostile individual. You know the type; loner, pays cash, fixes instead of buys (collects junk), bitches about the system; the type which arouses suspicion and caution. How do I keep from going insane when the problem seems to begin collectively, with a consciousness which predictably reacts to the unknown with suspicion and defense of "our way of life"?

This is a plea to anyone who is listening; I need more. I need to find a place where I can belong, where I can freely express myself, where I can use my mind, where I don't have to "compete" for my dignity and where I can really contribute. I need to find people with which I can really communicate with, which won't judge me for what I do know and which I can truly evolve with and learn from. Does such a place or people really exist? Am I being Utopian or overly idealistic? Help!
