Why do I torture myself?
Why do I intentionally read about current events that I know will enrage me?
I’ll tell you why, because I’d rather be inform than be ignorant. I think many public officials should learn that lesson.
I feel like we’re being thrown so much sensationalism that we’re losing what truth is and used to be. We can no longer trust the words written and said because we can’t trust the people that provide the information.
Is this part of a larger plan? Make the people so confused, stressed out and on edge so that we’ll just so that we’ll just continue to fight amongst ourselves, ignoring the issues not being addressed?
I’m started to feel paranoid. What is real? What is propaganda?
How long have we been moving in this direction?
Why are people so quick to believe the insane but balk at the logical?
It seems that we can’t have rationale discord anymore. That’s an oxymoron, isn’t it, but you get what I’m saying. We can’t agree to disagree. We can’t take both sides and reach a compromise. I blame our politicians, the media and we the people.
We obviously enjoy the chaos and uncertainty, we have to, or less why would we continue to elect and re-elect people that we know aren’t working for us? We purposely chose to remain ignorant or in denial, I can’t really tell anymore.
We allow the highest ranking government official to spend his days playing on Twitter. We allow him to throw a constant barrage of garbage at people just to see what sticks. Anything to keep us looking away from the truth, the reality, the real shit.
We all know the truth. We might not like it but we know it. We chose to ignore it in favor of fighting with our “fellow man.” It’s much easier to go online and insult a stranger than to admit that we made a mistake.
History has taught us, and so will the times we live in, that extremist and blind loyalty leads us to destruction. Yet here we are and here we will remain, until someone…multiple someone’s decide to stand up for people. Not liberals, not conservatives, not Christians, not Muslims, not anyone except people. All people, regardless of what you think to be right.
I challenge you all to think outside yourselves. Be mindful and really stop think without making it about you. It isn’t personal. It’s human.
