Where Is My Society??

The country I want to live in is a place where I feel free to express my opinions and share in other peoples ideas. I truly believe that a humane, progressive, adventurous, worldly and successful society is TRULY possible. Surely all it takes is a large dose of respect, a pinch of understanding and some empathy thrown in for good measure. I had previously assumed that within each and every so called “good” person you could find these things.

Turns out that you can purport to be such a “good” person and not need these traits at all!! I am thinking politicians and those ‘upstanding’ members of our community whose opinion bears a lot of weight (for some reason). OR you can have these traits but be willing and/or able to BURY them. Looking AT YOU Peter Garrett. Isn’t this the definition of being two faced? Isn’t that how the System wins?? Anyway, I digress.

Where Is My Society??? 

Where is the fair and just society that was promised me if I grew up well, developed empathy and became a good citizen? Why did you teach me to have empathy and be responsible when you struggle, NO FAIL, to do the same. Why THE FUCK can’t you just do what you say? Persecuting innocent people is a major NO NO. Well it is in my book. Maybe it is just me but if the general populace gets a hold of the idea that there is no justice, only convenient, economically driven, ignorant, racist but unfortunately popular opinions and ideas and THAT is what our society is based on then isn’t that a FREEWAY to revolution? Or do people truly not give a fuck anymore?

Just sayin’.

  1. I’m inclined to agree but a further investigation through studying societies
    Reveals that they are all power systems based on a status hegemony…. Yet this is
    Not a natural thing for humans, it seems to
    Have appeared when we developed war and a warrior caste… Before this we were like forest dwelling people who all shared based on a system of honour and of need… Age was respected, and ceremonies were the centrepoint of culture, in a hunter gatherer type culture. In the process of agrarian settlement and city building through the feudal ages to modernity enlightenment and revolution.., we have become affected by our post post modern industrial consumerist society dominated by capitalism, which now as more consumers come online becomes an unsustainable uncontrollable thing that no
    Body can predict, and so we are in the sad position of being able to see it but without a
    Massive groundswell of support it is very hard to stop, based as it is on desire for things. People change, they may not be who we thought they are to begin with or they may be a moron with good intentions, but whatever the case we are not done yet and humans do have a capacity to rally at the last minute…. Let’s hope it’s enough because they ain’t gonna play our tune.
