    The Most Depressing Thing On Television..

    Is the news. I can't watch it anymore. I understand it's the newscasters job to report this stuff but why has it gotten so bad? Every day it seems like tensions get worse between nations and more wars are going to break out. Every day I see a heartless person...

    It's All Sort of Depressing, Especially the Internet

    I posted this on another site on a whim, and I'm reposting it here for the large audience. I know a lot of the rant is unfounded (it is a rant after all), but does anyone else here agree with me at least a little bit?   "America’s distribution of power is...

    Not the People Within It

    As war commences once again (cough Georgia also has fuel sources cough), I fear that the powers that be are destroying all humanity.  Placing a mouse into the mouth of a lion in order to justify international intervention, and a possible whole other war.  People are...

    It's Scary

    with all the things we have available to us in our world today--all the technology and breakthroughs and such--you think we'd be better off than ever before. sadly, i tend to feel like just the opposite is true. while technology has given us a lot, it has also taken a lot away...

    We Don't Deserve This Planet.

    I don't care for the direction this world is headed in, and I really don't see a brighter future for it or myself. People always say that it gets better. How? People you know and love die. People change. Our bodies get weaker and weaker with age. We forget our past the older we...

    Too much pollution.  Too many people.  Too much garbage.  Too much apathy.  Too much carbon dioxide.  Too much anger.  Too much noise.  Too many rules. Too much hate.  Too much violence.  Too much malnourishment.  Too much sadness...

    There's so much hatred and loathing because people do not understand why things happen. If we all took the time to understand that things happen to teach us something...we'd live in a world full of curiosity instead of constantly living in our pasts and holding grudges. Grudges...

    Universal Truth
