Hello! I hope everyone has been absolutely wonderful.
I have been quite busy, I have many posts in drafts, but all my energy is being expended on doing my readings and working on my college work. When I get the chance to have a break, the last thing I want to do is look at the computer some more.
Most of the time, I uphold optimistic views. Don’t get me wrong: I usually see the world through a much better perspective than I am about to portray here. The principle of community seems to be at a loss. I am currently working on a teaching degree, and all that I am learning is telling me wonderful things. Especially the principles of inclusion in a classroom, school as a community providing both academic support and pastoral care etc etc.
AND THEN I THINK OF THIS… What kind of world are we living in. Sometimes people and principles of those who “govern” us makes me sick. Sick to the depths of my soul and the pit of my stomach. Let’s explore some of these.
Why discuss these negatives? Well because you cannot hide from them, turning a blind eye is just as bad as committing offence. It does nothing for the greater good and in fact, takes it backwards.
(I do apologise for my reference to curse words in the following accounts, while there is no swearing, I am just informing you)
We live in a world where men marry 12 yr olds and don’t get convicted as pedophiles in certain communities. WTF
Recently in the news in Sydney, Australia, a little 12 year old girl went to enrol into school and lo and behold it was discovered that she was MARRIED. Married to a 26-yr old man, and get this; he had parental consent to do so. Firstly what 26 year old man wants to marry a 12 yr old girl- clearly someone who is sick, more importantly what PARENT wants their 12 year old daughter, living in Sydney to be handed over to a 26 yr old man. I cannot even express how this makes me feel. I don’t want to understand the other side, because I just cannot see how taking the innocence of a child and subjecting them to a life and a place where their dignity, respect and safety is compromised. Disgusting. Able to resist your immoral urges or not I don’t care, we live in a world where you can get help to control them. Do something about it or gtfo.
We live in a world where we eat GMO’s all the time, because anything other than that we cant afford.
I mean let’s be critically honest. There is astounding evidence that the toxins being produced are inevitably causing irreparable damage. With awful long term effects we are sold these products because they save money? Because they sell? Because we are told to? I am sick and tired of companies and big scale corporations selling us CRAP that we could do without. Lies and deceit and withholding information that affects each and every person’s wellbeing. What is our other option? Spending a million dollars on groceries and food? When you have a family to take care of + every other stupid thing you have to pay for that you are made to believe you cannot live without; insurance, registration, random taxes (one day it will be air)- it’s cheaper to just go to the markets and buy in bulk or convenient grocery shopping at your local grocery store or supermarket. At least you can enjoy of what is left to enjoy. It is not practical and while better solutions will exist, big corporations will do anything not to let them happen. Who cares if you’re diseased? You’re just another dollar sign.
We live in a world where every little child may or may not learn respect and consideration in school but it’s all (for some people) forgotten when they become adults.
You see it in day to day happenings; in queues, when adults get angry, when adults ask for things, when adults want something. Let’s be real, we can count the number aggressive, angry, demanding, inconsiderate, hostile and disrespectful adults we encounter daily. Not saying the opposite does not exist, but WHY are there so many dwerps?! It’s like at school they couldn’t WAIT to get out of school so they didn’t have to follow any more rules? Get with it. You don’t need to be a jerk, you choose to be. And if you don’t think no one can notice… not only do people notice, but they don’t like you!
(But there are so many incredible people too (especially the people I know 😉 ),and this is not my overall viewpoints, but it’s a rant okay? And possibly an attempt to wake up a random who might read this perchance.)
