And in my words, may you find yours.

You break with an inconsistency known only to mankind.

How fragile you become

I hope you find serenity

You hope too.

When you go through a traumatic event, there’s a lot of shame that comes with that. A lot of loss of self-esteem. That can become debilitating.

Words of Emotion


Words of Emotion

So the government is basically a cult. I mean, you don’t get a choice if you’re in or out. If you do, by some miracle, leave the system, your life is made a living hell, going out of the way to take away any comfort you might have accomplished in your desperate state. You have to come of age before being given any power, even though it’s limited. There are several levels and even the top ones don’t really know what’s going on. And, of course, there are ceremonially human sacrifices.

And all this, always, always, ends in some sort of revolution and a power play. So make sure you have the army, because the battles always on.

Apparently the government deals with issues revolving around human lives with end-of-pipe solutions. Choose the easiest, cheapest method till it becomes dangerous to our health while not caring how it affects anyone else. Because apparently it’s okay to litter the world with dismantled, bleeding bodies and lost lives as long as it’s not “our people” or on “our land”. As long as we don’t have to face any direct consequences.

Apparently, it’s best to choose the winning side than to do the harder thing and actually solve a problem until the situation escalates and the body count is too high. Apparently, change can’t happen without a few dead bodies. Because, apparently, everyone has a right to defend themselves, even when they are being mercilessly violent and unnecessarily offensive. It’s their right. But not if you’re the losing side, how dare you even try to defend yourself. Shame on you. Just lie down your citizens in neat little lines, so we can easily get at you. Why even try to fight when you’re already losing. I mean, if you were right you’d be winning, never mind that we’ve taken away everything you could have used and have left you in a desperate state.

Apparently, human lives are valued differently depending on how much power your nation has and everything else is just casualties for the cause. A cause for a system that’s on the brink of breaking. You have to understand, you may be desperate, but so are we. And we’ll destroy you to elongate our unsustainable lifestyle. Because this is more convenient than doing anything helpful.
