At what point do you stop saying anything? When do you realize your thought, hopes, feelings, etcetera, only matter to yourself? We live in a world of peer pressure. Others dictate what’s right or wrong. The rich and powerful are at the top while the rest of the world wades deep in their waste. Our opinions are never heard to completion because everyone else has an opinion on your opinion. The ones who know this prison and seek to be truly free, are labeled as terrorists, because they are able to see through the current lie of freedom. Freedom is the crumbs they throw you to appease your hungry bellies. Your money is not your money. It’s taxed on top of more tax. Your words carry no value to anyone else, because the only words they value are their own. You only know what you’ve been taught, and now you find it’s all wrong. There is nothing you can do but suffer. Smile and nod. Just blend in. Maybe they won’t see your no longer happy and just want it to be gone. If change was possible, it only comes from the ones with the means to change it. That means everyone doing the same thing, but that’s a communist idea. Communism is what everyone else wants, but they don’t realize it. Communism never works. Democracy might as well be Santa Claus, because it’s too easily manipulated to truly serve the masses so democracy is a lie. In the end, we are just animals who value shiny things and horde them. We parade around like we’re better than animals because we have a soul, but so does a rock. It has memory and carries a story. If you don’t believe it, look it a graveyard. Walk through a canyon and see how the land was formed by the sands and waters of time. We are animals with the power of imagination. Imagination is why we are no longer in caves, because people had ideas. So when did we let others control us? That is not freedom. Freedom never attainable because there is always something that will stop you. So if we accept that, why can’t we accept other reasoning? Why don’t we accept that we are but cogs in a machine? We make changes, and 100 years from now changes again. This is how we survive. We are taught to be good workers and do what’s best for the colony. There will always be greed. There will always be fear. There will always be a change needed. This continues forever. It’s growth. It’s evolution. We evolve into better workers.
In the matrix Morpheus gives the pill speech to Neo: “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember, all I’m offering is the truth, nothing more.”
This always is the turning point you face. You are always forced to make a decision. Not making a decision is still a decision. A failure to act is an act in itself. So when you’re faced with the decision, how will you decide? What will you do? How does your story end? Don’t think too long on that quest because while we’re all bitching, pissing, and moaning about shit, your life is passing you by. Nobody is right or wrong, just different. While we are all different, we are all the same. This is why we’re always fighting. We’re fighting for identity. We’re fighting to be heard. We are fighting for change. We are all on this rock together, but we are not all equal. There will always be the fortunate ones. There will always someone willing to do more. You can’t rely on them, because they’re looking out for themselves. You have to put in the work. Change doesn’t come because you closed your eyes and wished real hard blowing out the candles. Change comes from blood, sweat, and tears. Change comes on the backs of those greater than you. Remember that the next time you scold an older person for calling you a gender specific pronoun or a man for showing chivalry. Remember that everyone is racist no matter the skin colour. Remember that everyone was born female or male but for a short period of time we were neither. Remember your a useless shite who feels the world owes you something. The thing is nobody owes you shit. You want something, then do the work. Some of us put in the work and still don’t have shit. Not to mention we broke ourselves working for it and can’t work as we used to. You’re alive. Be thankful. You obviously have some sort of technology, because you’re reading this. Some people don’t have a pot to piss in. Stop demanding change if you’re unwilling to do it yourself. You already have more than many others.
This is probably some of the harshest shit I say anymore. I try to change, but like many others it takes time and work. So if I have offended you, great. If not, great. Either way I said my piece. I was heard. Whether I’m understood remains to be seen. For now I focus on my happiness. I’m not here to make you better. That’s your work. I’m too busy trying to stand on my own two feet. When you get it figured out, I truly hope it makes you happy. In the end? That’s all that matters.
