“Making the world a better place is a good thing to do. Everyone needs to have hope once in a while. “ – Quote, random bitch on the internet
“There is no hope, to have hope implies that there is a chance that something can be accomplished.” – Quote, me….
This started a shit storm for me and what was originally a sarcastic remark has become a focal point for me and what is really wrong with this planet.
We’re fucked. Now you can pretty that up as much as you want to but it isn’t going to change what has happened and what is going to happen.
We have used and abused the resources on this planet until they are almost gone. We’ve fought wars over these resources, people have died for the resources. DIED. Yet, for every person who steps up to the plate to say “We need to stop doing this shit” there are thousands who keep right on doing it. Trying to make changes happen on this planet is like trying to put out a wildfire with an eyedropper.
Do I think if humanity made a concerned effort to change things it could happen? Yes I do. Do I think humanity is capable of doing so? NO. I think them incapable of working together for a common goal. I mean honestly, is there anything of real importance that humanity as a majority agrees on?
So how can you feel there is hope for any change? How can one even argue for hope given what you see every single day on the news. Humanity, as a majority, is a selfish lot and they don’t care. For every “feel good” moment out there, there are thousands of moments of abuse, murder, torment and death.
So yes, my response may be circular reasoning (I don’t agree but I might have misread the definition) and yes it may be depressingly negative, and you might even think it is stupid. The problem is, it doesn’t change the fact that I’m right.
If you think I’m wrong, then make the changes needed to ensure humanity survives and I’ll be more than happy to apologize, until then…. I would suggest you come back to reality and understand that we’re fucked and we’ve done it to ourselves.
I, on the other hand, am researching where the best seat will be to watch it all burn!
