I have to take the world news in small bites. It’s not that I’m surprised or shocked by the changes in humanity, it’s that I’m not surprised or even slightly astonished anymore by the lengths they are willing to go in order to keep the paradigms from shifting away from wealth, classism, and obnoxious privilege, into a community of humane growth, intellectual curiosity and beauty.
I saw the advent of apathy coming years ago. What I am is terribly disappointed. Disappointed that people accept these things are happening, so long as they aren’t happening to them. So long as it suits an agenda that benefits their personal beliefs and goals, no matter cost to others. The fact that rape culture exists, genocide exists, controlling people’s bodies, making laws to prop up and maintain a dying infastructure that was never for ALL people, just SOME of the people. It makes me angry and tired. It keeps me in a constant state of despair and disbelief.
I can’t fathom a people who wake and decide that these entitled views and oppressive actions are the things they will support, these are the people they will champion, these are the laws they want to see.
A truly humane person cannot fathom cruelty or the acceptance of cruelty to anyone. It makes me feel physically numb and horrified to realize that large portions of the human world are ok with hurting others or limiting their happiness, just so they, themselves, can continue with the life they have become accustomed to living.
Our planet is destroying itself inwardly and outwardly. Man created a god of money and power and now they are not only its slave, they are cheering as it destroys them.
