    Yar Think

    Though I do have enough faith in humanity, to be positive there are a lot of people out there who are willing to help another along the way. It really is the only solution..... not governments, police or welfare ! We need to remember that we are all on this journey through life...

    It's evil. Society is one of the worst things

    Man came up with since money.Sounds crazy,but imagine if we didn't have to work jobs we hate and put our mental health at risk just to keep ourselves fed and watered.If the only "jobs" were growing food for everyone to survive on. How grand would it be if a group of politicians...

    People have always put themselves in front of

    others even if they are doing something for others they usually have ulterior motives the amount of hatred I feel Coming from some people to others is astonishing it's like the word kindness isn't even a word.

    I don't think it's a downward spiral,

    I just believe that the population is too much for one planet and disaster gets worse as more people unwillingly get caught in.

    How Far Down

    It isn't difficult for anyone to see how our society has changed.  In some ways it has changed for the better but for the most part I see where it has changed for the worse.  There is more bad than ever in our world.  Yet, many continue to say we need to progress...

    It's easy to see especially

    if you're like me and work in retail. Or just look on the internet. And no one bothers to change. So I decided I'll just watch it fall. It amuses me.

    Oh The Humanity!

    So I've been thinking a lot these days about humanoids; you know, mankind and our current state of being-alive-ism. And hey, don't laugh, being-alive-ism is so totally a real word, even if I just made it one! Thing is, I was pondering the other night, what the hell is wrong...

    We Are Not Who We Used to Be

    We are not the enlightened and all-inclusive society some people claim we are.  Far from it.  We try desperately to control one another but have a dire lack of self control.  We live in a society supposedly advanced, but has so little control over its darkness...
