what is society? it pisses me off how a cop(someone who is made up of millions of cells just like everyone else) can ruin someones entire life. Why are countries & different societies fighting with each other? just because people made imaginary borders and claimed their own territory it becomes okay to everyone that we are killing each other? why the fuck is weed illegal? weed is a plant. it makes you hungry happy and sleepy. alcohol is a drug that causes violence and death. Why is it that just because a “law” says something is wrong, everyone must obey it? Why is it that in todays modern world you need to have sex with a girl before you start dating her? what happened to classiness and self respect? Im a normal dude going to college, i live a normal life. i smoke weed everyday. I think about this shit a lot and it makes me angry knowing theres not much i can do. I know everyone is probably thinking “of course you can make a difference! you cant think like that!” but no, your terribly wrong. No one person can really make a difference to the big picture. I know this is a bunch of random shit but let people know your thoughts on it. I know im curious to what you have to say for sure.
I totally agree. The law is silly, but it’s there for a reason. I don’t feel it will be there for eternity. I believe/hope that we’ll evolve enough to not need laws, boarders, countries and the likes. My big one is parking tickets; can’t stand them. We feel the need to rent out a few square metres of space and if we go overtime on that rent, then we get charged a ridiculous amount. Money is stupid; it just leads us to compete with each other rather than have compassion.
But I disagree with you on the fact that one human can’t make a difference. Where do movements start? It starts with the individuals. It starts with individual people, or person, talking and then what slowly becomes a group. So yeah, groups and movements might make the difference, but it’s individuals who start the movements.
@msaracino, I totally get the borders thing, people just like to distinguish themselves from others in a way to get power. Laws, borders, religion, it’s all about limitations and rules. There is no rhyme or reason except people want to control you and want power.
As for the girls, I think that is just a general loss of morals within our generation and since it isn’t a big deal, people do what feels good.
It’s sucks to go to college and realize that all of this stuff is hard to change, I feel you but I have come to terms for the most part.
Society has evolved into “survival of the fittest” and the fittest in these terms means the ones with the most money. And people see these celebrities and other figure heads and want to be like them. So these rich people have all the power in our society and so far most people don’t realize it and until they realize it they can’t do anything about it.
Im with you all the fckin way. i get high a lot and i do the same shit on questioning everything around me and seeing the big picture, reality. Some ppl are just so into their own fantasy worlds where they think laws are actually REAL and go about living life without their own opinions on what should REALLY be done in these time. Weed should be legalized, it isnt a bad thing at all, no one has ever died from it and i believe that whoever is going against it should try it first. The government wants us to get hooked onto THEIR drugs that come out in tv commercials. Weed has made me realize so much shit that i can honestly say gave me a different perception on life as it is. Reality is so fuckin unbelievable, we were born in the middle of time and we dnt know shit about what we are or where we came from. Weed makes someone an individual if you think about shit like this while high and the government does NOT want that. The government aint on our fuckin side. If the world were to work together we would actually get somewhere. So get high and live for what you WANT or dont live at all. Lifes a beautiful thing but keep in mind that we are only here temporary;)
This is precisely why Marijuana, shrooms, ayahuasca, iboga, and other natural substances are all ILLEGAL in many “controlled” nations. They don’t want the masses thinking or experiencing other perspectives. They want us working, buying, consuming, and supporting THEIR lifestyle. Unquestioning worker bees to do their bidding.
yeah, and it doesn’t work :) Certain people are like the weeds, the plants they encounter and become friends with. No mental-monsanto can get rid of us. No matter how small I am, I am still a weed of sorts, doing its own thing.
Structural oppression is weak in the face of integrity, selfhood and therefor consciously or subconsciously ‘they’ try to obscure the path of the real warriors; those who know how to stay out of fear.
To stay out of fear is my only challenge, all the rest is a side effect of the psyche.
Something will change. It’s gonna get worse before it gets better. For some people it has to get really bad before they actually stand up and say this isn’t right. So many people are blind. Blind people may not be able to see the shit that’s going on in front of them, but they will sure notice when it slaps them in the face.
@msaracino, Hey man! I have *fantastic* news for you! And, that is that you are terribly wrong ;D YOU have all the power in the world to change the world. To think that you have no power IS to have no power. To decide that you control your world is to be in control. Do you think Ghandi really believed he had no power to change the world? What about Einstein? Do you think Rosa Parks would have sat down on that bus if she thought it would have no impact? The present conditions of the world are nothing more than an accumulation of what every INDIVIDUAL has added to it. Each individual has had a different impact, some large, and some minuscule. It is your choice what your impact is. How exciting is that? The world is waiting for you to leave your mark. What’s it gonna be? ;)
@msaracino, Yes things are getting more and more fucked up in this messed up society; however, always remember it could be worse. You could be in Afghanistan living in hotter than hell weather, with suicide bombers killing innocent people, people with guns everywhere, and all the other shit that’s going on in the world. So learn to be GRATEFUL as well, while you mope about our shitty society.
That being said, things are moving in some horribly unfortunate directions. Everyone’s being motivated by money alone, and putting high principles and morality on the back burner–What the fuck?? People are selfish bastards aren’t they. But this is because their damn egos and habits, their MIND, has control over them. They are fucking blinded, and shit, I used to be blind as well. Thank god I was enlightened by this website, books, and some deep, ever present feeling that something is not right ever since my childhood (which I never understood until now).
Yes, it seems like a hopeless situation because there are so many damn people hypnotised by this ‘Matrix’ of making money, all the while focusing on themselves and their own life, not looking at the big picture. But damnit, I’m feeling good and alive and I’m going to help every lost soul I come across if I can, and give them as much love and attention they need in order to realize their true existence and wake up out of their constant ego illusions! Maybe I won’t even come across enough people to truly make an impact; but hey, if I can help ten, fifty, a hundred maybe even a thousand people before I die (if I’m lucky), I’ll be pretty happy about that. And if people like you guys try to make small differences as well, for sure we can make a small dent in the system.
Hey, all it takes is a small spark to ignite a fire. :)
@msaracino, You make some valid points, despite sounding like you just got busted for possession. If you want experience first-hand what a society-less nation (so-to-speak) is like, make a little trip to El Salvador or Somalia.
Call me a conspiracy theorist but i think it’s all on the government. The main ‘cervelli’ do everything for personal interest. Like, the U.S. got into ww1, ww2 and vietnam just so the richest bank families could get richer. Millions of fucking people died so some snobs could gain power (the rockfellers, morgans, et).
And then there’s the media. The damn box we call a TV is brainwashing society. We think like it, dress like it, talk like it, eat like it etc. its friggin irritating how they control minds like that. people dont even know theyre friggin robots. fuck it.
