The Ignorance Of Mankind



"I conceive that the great part of the miseries of mankind are brought upon them by false estimates they have made of the value of things."

-Benjamin Franklin

"We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive."

-Albert Einstein

I don't hate very many individuals, rather I hate mankind as a whole. I hate society, conformity, and the way people form their outlook on life based on what other people tell them and what they are taught to believe. People are not stupid, they are ignorant. They have not yet learned things that cannot be taught from a book, another person, or technology. They haven't learned how to form an outlook on life that's worth having. We, meaning society as a whole, puts emphasis on things that are not important such as politics and technology. We are worthless creatures, worthy of nothing and capable of even less. We rely on things that are manmade and take nature for granted. We cannot survive without a grocery store, our computers, our vehicles, and omg lets not forget our precious cell phones! We are worthless and cannot survive on our own. We rely on others to make things easier for us.

We need to change as a whole and get back to being independent individuals worthy of more than what we are now. We allow material possessions to take over our lives and define us.

Furthermore, I would like to move to the middle of nowhere and live as one with nature, without humans and their horrific way of life.

I can't say i blame ya. People do blindly destroy themselves and the sad part about it is that it is a circle that never ends.
