    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...

    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.

    Barely Scratching the Surface..

    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...

    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.

    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...
