week 21 || 2016: third world problems

Can you even handle THIS truth? Is this any way to ‘exist’ because I cannot call it ‘living’.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much.

We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life.

We’ve added years to life, not life to years.

-George Carlin

 


 

I titled this “third world problems” because, essentially, America is a third world country by the most current definition.  I don’t know what this thing is that we’re doing now, but it’s definitely not first world. [As usual, the west has it backwards.] We are way too caught up in trivialities. Life didn’t begin the way many of us live it. In the beginning, we weren’t born to parents who had to…

  1. What’s even worse, is Americans are desperately unhappy in this isolated superficiality, with depression, alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide rates skyrocketing. Human beings are hardwired for connection and community and function very poorly without it.

    • That is true Dr. Bramhall! And as a result of that truth, we are now seeing the results of that ‘isolated superficiality’ and the status quo will continue because we have been conditioned and programmed to believe that this is what we need. We cannot even understand that the reasons why we are drug addicted, depressed alcoholics is because we have been programmed to believe that this is how humans are supposed to live, in isolation and among material possessions to the point where many are turned into hoarders and told to shop until you drop and then get up and shop some more. Acquire a lot of useless junk because that will make you happy.

      Newsflash, they’re not happy at all with all the junk they’ve managed to accumulate. Some finally clean out the garage, have a sale and other hoarders come running. It’s a vicious cycle with no ending because even the tag on the toe does not stop this shit. Even after death, there are death duties to pay, an estate to liquidate and creditors to pay. Sigh! We’re all fucking doomed!

      Dr. Bramhall, thank you for your comment!

    • “A lack of basic human rights” – America! Ding! Freddie Gray did not have the right to stand on a sidewalk in broad daylight in Baltimore, MD because if he did, he would not be pushing up daisies. Tamir Rice did not have the right to play in a park without getting shot dead, 2 SECONDS after the racist ass KKKops showed up and murdered him. Sandra Bland is dead because she did not have the right to make a mistake and forget to use her turn signal and for that she got hanged in a Texas jail. Shall I continue? Because I could!

      Coupled with a repressive, corrupt government” – America! Ding! There are at least 2.3 million people, mostly Negroes, incarcerated on bullshit drug charges. These people are locked up for being in possession of a PLANT, while Caucasians, who were pulled over for drunk driving are still driving drunk and I know this to be true because in my neck of the woods, alone, many of the same shits are arrested, time and time again for driving drunk and with revoked licenses and no insurance BECAUSE they drove drunk several times before THAT particular stop.

      I cannot get on an airplane without first stripping and then heading into an x-ray machine because the fucked up shits that are corrupt have turned this entire planet into a warzone and because of their shit stirring, we have Homeland Security, The NSA, The Patriot Act and some more shit. Spying on us via our emails, telephone calls and any other form of communication ain’t repressive?

      And don’t even get me started on the corruption that is rampant not only in D.C. but in every city in every state in this shithole. That shit on Wall Street is as corrupt as the day is long and yet the U.S. Department of Justice saw no reason to charge any of those thugs with any goddamn thing! Why? Because the U.S. government is the very definition of CORRUPT!

      AmeriKKKa is a 3rd world shithole and there ain’ no getting around THAT fact!
