What is it with people? Why don't they get "it"
It seems to me that you cannot give someone the general idea
of some thing and let them go with it anymore. Have you noticed how horrible TV
is? I cannot even watch it lest I get sick and vomit on the coffee table
. Is this the world we live in?
I am by no means a genius
, I fall in that awkward category of half-stupid people
When I pick up an instruction manual, if its "For dummies
" it is mundane
, but if it is for advanced students I am frequently lost
We live in a society in which it is ok to be a complete moron
. We accept stupidity rather than trying to educate and/or gas the terminally moronic
. I want more stimuli! I crave the day when I can't understand a fucking thing anyone says. I lack self motivation
And yet no one gets "it". Even some self-proclaimed
intellectuals don't get "it" half of the time. By "it" I mean the truths of life. The obvious. That which smacks you in the face and demands acceptance. The "big picture
We shun the truth of things. We truly need an instruction manual
for the conceptually retarded
. I cannot write it though I wish I could. I can live with the fact that a lot of people are smarter than I am. I can live also with the fact that a lot of people are not as smart as I am. But I am decidedly against
people kidding themselves into believing that they are living to their fullest potential when they are not. I am also tired of everyone complacency
in this fucked up world. Rather than change things people build up their shell, turn up the white noise
and ignore the scenery
. It scares
Maybe one of you can write the book. There are enough intellectuals
here to do it. Something for everyone to read as they are growing. A manifesto
, a bible
, an instruction manual
, An encyclopedia
outlining everything that people ignore, abuse and take for granted.
It is not hard, and that is the sad thing. Life tells us what is right and wrong
tells us what to do. We just never listen
. We know what to do
and it will never get done.
