“What is it about society that disappoints you so much?”
“Oh I don’t know, is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit; the world itself’s just one big hoax. Spamming each other with our burning commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money.
I’m not saying anything new. We all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy but because we wanna be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. Fuck Society.”

This message obviously resonates with ALL humans at the core level. Most understand hardwork being necessary to pleasure, which i totally agree with. But hard work does not mean you have to be “employed”. The problem really stems from the systemic, and fundamental blocks that our society is built on… money. The money powers are purposely stacked against the majority of human kind to keep fueling the rat race, and to keep us enslaved. We don’t keep “inventing jobs b/c we think everyone should be employed”. We keep inventing jobs b/c we have to have a way to make money to survive. Even with a “living wage” given to each person, that wage will always be dependent on a financial and money system that is corrupt to the core. Money has to become obsolete period, which then means Governments need to go next. If some how you were even able to make this happen, you’d have instantaneous civil war from and complete chaos in trying to shift into this new paradigm. Its not something that can happen gradually, it has to happen quickly, and drastically. The system HAS to crash, there is no easy way of reigning in the money powers. They will fight tooth and nail to keep you in your servitude.
True. The system is obsolete. It is necessary to change decisively.
Everything stated in this quote is a reflection of the current mode of human cognitive indoctrination. We do these things because it is the accepted norm and there is presently nothing in the current cultural or cognitive framework on any large scale that provides an alternative from which to choose. Everyone is locked into repeating the errors of our ancestors because we are all indoctrinated with these ideas. This cognitive mold needs to be broken if humanity has any hope of advancing itself by evolving our consciousness.
