It’s no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a sick society.
Perhaps all organised and populist civilisations are sick, or perhaps it’s just the one I seem to be living in right now. And it may be that there’s something wrong with me, rather than most of the rest of the people on this planet. But whatever the background noise may be, there is no doubt in my mind that this 21st century society is unwell, psychotic, and insane ~ and perforce I have to live in it.
Maybe I should just stop paying attention to the news, which is usually filled with trivia about the celebrities of the day, crap about catastrophic anthropogenic climate change, political scandals, and sports. None of which is going to make one iota of difference to my life. I strongly suspect that nothing you read in the news today will make a scintilla of difference to your life either.
It would seem that I have a simple choice; to fully engage with modern society and everything in it, or just reject society, burn my bridges, and go on my own way.
No choice at all really.
Anyone with true self-awareness is going to realise that the only path through life that is right for them is their own. That they should strive not to fit in with the habits, mores, and flawed ethics of modern society, but instead strike out on their own. Not being part of the herd gives one a feeling of liberation and being in charge of what is happening in your life ~ of being a leader and not just another sheep in the flock.
For me, it is time to break free of the limitations I have accepted for myself, by trying to conform to what I ‘think’ I should be doing; what family, friends, and the rest of society says I should be doing. Stop trying to ‘fit in’, stop giving to charity, think before I pay my bills, and stop saying ‘sorry’ all the time.
Some say there is safety in numbers. And, that daring to be different is something only bad people do. All I know is that I’d rather be a wolf than a sheep.
Dare to be different and discover just how much you can enjoy life.
Don’t be a prisoner of society. Just don’t get yourself arrested.
big charites are rotten to the core
