The world is shit, face it we live in a shitty world. We live in this world because people are shitty. Not in they are all crap, but a lot of people are pretentious, prideful, egotistic, manipulative, narcissistic, etc… The more people who want it to be better and try to fix it, a lot of idiots go and mess it up. What are we to do as a society that is separated by racism, sexism, and classicism?
If it was possible to give the world a makeover I would do it in a heartbeat. But, I am not Genie and this is not Aladdin. There is no music in the background and a chance for me to belt out A Whole New World. That is the reality.
The reality is that we as people are not perfect, and we do or do not change our ways. It’s not because we want to, but it’s to either go against the suffocation of society around us or to fit into that suffocating society. Those who are different are neither here or there.
Here is what I mean, those who are different do not want to either fit in or not fit in. They themselves just do not fit in, and in turn, they could either embrace it and find empowerment in it, or they deny it and break away from their norm and try to reinvent themselves.
People like that, are the ones that were considered the outcasts in school. But, what is wrong with being an outcast, nothing. Being an outcast should be embraced because what it ensues is a people who have their own perfection, that is not appreciated, but soon will be needed to help society move.
For example, Gamers were considered outcasts, but now they are revered, well not so much revered, but admired. They have given a lot of kids who love gaming hope that they can become successful. Another example would be AV nerds, they were considered the lowest of the low when it came to school hierarchy. Not saying they are popular now, but those same AV guys and girls are also the ones who become directors and direct movies, T.V. shows, and Music Videos.
So do we live in a shitty world, yes, but not because we need to, but because people let it be that way. That is why there are those who fight against the grain, to better society, but only so much can go far. Then again, we have to be optimistic, right?
We lived in so much crap for so long, that rather it gets better, there are those behind the scenes that prefer it to stay that way since there is profit in the world being Topsy Turvy.
Take for example the music industry, in the past music used to be wholesome, then it became music more rhythmic, from rhythmic it became loud, from loud it became hopping, from hopping now it is a trap. As music has progressed, public opinion has been different, but one thing we have agreed on in society is that music is music.
But why can’t we as people, see that people are just people. That humans are just humans. That wrong is wrong and right is right. What is wrong is how the world is going. What is right is trying to better it, progressively, without war, poverty, economic imbalance, greed, selfish pride, violence, power-hungry moguls, corrupted law system, corrupted law enforcement, corrupted government, racism, sexism, and classicism.
If that was possible, we would live in a Utopian world, but human beings either are or are not trustworthy. That is where optimism, sometimes die at. Yet, there are those who do not give up, even if what they think and believe, seems impossible to believe, those people you call Dreamers.
Those like Sanders, Warren, and AOC, are considered Dreamers, why because what they stand for and believe, seems out of the Norm for the U.S. But, then again seems as though the route many are starting to see as a reality, not because we are optimistic like these Dreamers, but we have reached a point of no return and are desperate, for a change and some good to finally happen.
Yes, we live in a shitty world. Yes, there is a lot to be done. Yes, there is a divide between what is right and wrong. But, we as a society, should know who to trust and who to ignore, and that is where we fail. Not everyone around you is truthful and here to help you. That is why people come into this world alone and die alone. We have to check our selves first before we can assume we understand or know others.
