I’m at that point in my life where I’m saying “FUCK IT!” and walking away from the crazy, stupid pettiness infecting the world today. Walking away from the ignorant mass of idiots on social media who ALL are self proclaimed experts, and by their own admission, the smartest people in the world.
I’m walking away from the politics. The blame gaming. The childish finger-pointing and divisiveness. We’re better than that.
I’m walking away from the sad societal acceptance of ignorance and lies as fact and calling facts fake news. What have we become when society votes for the condemnation of science and the willfully ignorant choose to embrace scientific illiteracy instead of evidence, facts and the wonders of the universe?
The world is shallow and petty and terrified of the truth. It exalts and praises the infantile. The world is corrupt as fuck and only getting worse. The world isn’t how you think it is, and maybe that’s why I finally realize you can’t really change it without changing yourself.
Becoming fake to match societies acceptance of what’s fake is not an option for me. We’re on a train barreling toward the end of the track that leads into a bottomless abyss of ignorance and stupidity. Humans are immature, childish, petty, and easily offended, ruled by their emotions and irrational thought. To escape humanity is to die, but to live within the irrational world we have built around ourselves is pure insanity.
There’s got to be a better way. I aim to find it.
If not for the world, for myself and my own sanity.
