I am worried that there will be few survivors after this empty information apocalypse is done. It hurts my feelings, stings my eyes and burns my mind as i read people’s statuses and opinions about what they perceive as facts in today’s world. We have no accountability, no responsibility, and no value for what we say or do. We are random, irrational and dumbfounded by a shiny screen and some keys that magically turn our thoughts into language.
We are being flooded, drowned and suffocated so eloquently and entertainingly by false information and ridiculous value systems. My head is pounded daily with how the world is so interconnected and globalized, that you are a citizen of the world and no longer of one state. We are fed such notions implying that the human race has won after all, and the world exists solely for our pleasure. This arrogant form of existence is not sustainable even if it is international.
We live in the age of small talk and big wallets. We surround ourselves with illusions of happiness and we dwell on the shiny reflections of our masked ineptitude. We crawl into our fancy lie of a lifestyle thinking that nobody is on to us. We only act on incentive, reward and punishment; we have no value for genuine or nice anymore. We trip on our egos as we speak of poorly adopted ideas and we find offense in everything that moves. No body is secure because this wonderland of information leaves us inhibited and scared like little children on their first day of school. Except, we are not being schooled, we are not being educated, we are being turned into conceding vegetation, acknowledging the truths marketed to us to keep us quiet and dumb.
Religious sectarianism, conditioning us since infancy, eats out our rationality and purity. We misuse wise words and pleasure ourselves with what suits us of it. We hear but we never listen. We preach, but we never communicate. Prejudice becomes us and we viciously attack any form of individuality or free speech. We have our minds locked in double thinking mode; assuming that open-mindedness is the opposite of self control or religion. We are on a bandwagon, we are the ill-informed public, misled into believing that we know about everything and have access to all the information; but we are the fools, we are the silent lambs dragged into war, into apathy and oblivious existence.
Take offense in your own ignorance rather than other people’s. Educate yourself before attempting to change the world. Save yourself, for it is a zombie apocalypse of humans mutated and disfigured by the floods of filthy and poisonous information they have been consuming.
PS: If there are any survivors, please inform others, you never know whose life you’re saving 🙂
