    The Word Society Doesn't Makes Sense To Me!

    The whole world is essentially one big (currently) segregated society. As time has passed we have further distanced our human connection by borders, countries, states, cities, class, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion. The way I see society everyone belongs, everyone is...

    Change Society, Not Yourself

    Sometimes I feel out of place in society, and I'm okay with that. It's less that I feel like I don't belong in society, and more that I feel like several sets of values surrounding me are what don't belong in society. I'd rather help society change to be more accepting of...

    I Refuse

    My family and me disagree on many things, but the biggest seems to be on how I should live. My mother in particular. She only sees "You need to find something you love, and then get a job doing that so you can contribute your brilliance to the world!" While I believe "I'm too...

    Not only I disagree with feminism,

    individualism, globalism, and all the - isms that rule in today's world, but I cannot accept a society where human relationships are not based on honor, honesty and generosity, but in sheer interest and profit.

    Where Are We Heading?

    The society we live in is changing. Changing for worse. I'm afraid of '1984' coming. Coming soon. Maybe not in my lifetime, maybe not my children's, but soon, much too soon. Because, what are we doing to avoid this? We do NOTHING. We do nothing to oppose the government, we do...

    Yeah. I don't belong in the society.

    The reason being that... I belong in my own society and group of people who understands me. I don't need to fit in but get along with them. And I'll probably survive. Sounds egoistic or naive (if that's the word) But I mean it in a good way.

    Society Feels So Corrupt.. Why Do People Live Like This?

    Society feels so wrong. Trying so hard to get that good job, so you can have the nice house or the nice car. People let the things they own control them. What is the point of life in our society? To get a job and feel like you have some sort of a purpose? I know some people can...

    homogenised lump that can not think or feel as individuals? I forgive those who have been hurt or cajoled into living acceptably. I am not like you and so I am happy to have a few people who accept me. I will never fit in, and that is fine. I am me.

    Pressured By Society

    It drives me crazy, sometimes, the things that modern society finds so important -  looks, status, possessions...and even though you don't want to care, society presses its values on you and measures you by those values every time you step out the door.
