The world is dying, there are too many people using up its limited resources, humanity needs to STOP before its too late. Our greed and our arrogance will be our downfall, all of the oceans in the ENTIRE world are coated with a layer of plastic, all of them. The air is choked with chemicals that give us cancer, and destroy our bodies. The fish are full of mercury and heavy metals, which literally melt our brains. The land is overused, choked with vile pesticides and fertilisers. We cannot colonise other planets, we only have one world. What can we do, is our species destined to go out with a whimper, not a bang, destined to die out on a barren, polluted wasteland of a world, is there no great future for mankind? And the general dumbing down of society doesnt help, the greedy corporations brainwash us with useless things, break down our self images with false idols and propaganda, intellectuals are ridiculed, and the greatest technological advances of late, have been devices for social media of all things, so we can waste more time talking about the crap that we bought. What about history, what about all those who fought and died for the future of man? What was the point of all that philosophy, that effort and the tears and blood spilt over thousands of years, all so we can have another Iphone or watch more Lady gaga spouting uninspired commercial shit that numbs our brains and distracts us from our doom. It disgusts me that people take pride in getting shit faced drunk, as if it is some kind of achievement, when did it become a crime to be intelligent, or at least to strive to improve yourself if you realise that you are not? What the flaming HELL has been going on in the last 60 years? Why, why must we mutilate ourselves and our home, why wont someone please stop this horrible crime? There was an old movie, called Soylent green, and the world depicted there was a dusty empty wasteland, overcrowded with people, and there is a scene where the two characters, make a feast out of an apple and some other small things. Is that the future, will we one day consider something as trivial as an apple such a wonderful commodity? Will no one save us from ourselves? Can this terrible, terrible crime be stopped, we are ALL vicitims here, and our future is being destroyed without our say. Im sorry for the tl;dr but this is something that has been festering inside me for sometime.
