I heard a quote some time ago, that said, "All men are created equal, it is man that places themselves above others." Looking around at the world around me, I can see that it's true. Wars over difference of opinion, beliefs, and just for ego boosts it seems. So many people just out for themselves, never realizing, that perhaps with understanding, and by working together, we can all obtain our goals. Instead it seems, human nature has taken a turn from mere survival, to a race to be first. Just looking around my town, and my own situations, selfishness, blatant refusal to share any sort of joy, is rampant. Everyone wants to be the only one to have any of the happiness, and if they can't get it, they ruin it for other people. We make environmental problems, and economy out to be the big problems. When in fact, even if those are restored, nothing is any better. All the money in the world won't make the people I speak of realize what they're doing to themselves, and others. They don't care, and that's the problems with ideology. If they truly believe what they're doing is right, then nothing you say, or show to them will ever change their mind. It's turned into a big game of follow the leader, so many people do it, I guess it's the new hip thing. The baggy pants craze is gone now, bell bottoms are out, we're running out of fads, and this one is everlasting. The last big fashion statement, so to speak. It makes me really sick, what people do to one another. Those who try to help others, do all they can. When the tables turn, and those are the people who need a little assistance, the very people that they helped, turn up their nose, and don't even acknowledge their existence. Nice guys finish last, nice girls finish last, the assholes of the world, get everything, because they don't care who they step on to get it. Humanity is doomed at this point. This isn't a cryptic message signifying the end of the world, or a World War. It signifies the intolerance, the moral corruption, the selfishness, the uncaring ability, that's inbred into every one of us. Everyone has the ability to do good, or evil. Some choose to do good, others do not. But that's whats ruining this world we live in. The amount of people who simply don't care about anything but themselves anymore. It may seem small, but with so many people doing it, it becomes the butterfly effect. That to me is the saddest part. Please share your thoughts if you wish, I'd love to hear your opinions as well.
