Curiosity tends to get the best of me.
First I sat through another video by RBK2…because I’m obviously an idiot. Then tonight someone sent me a link for Janet Bloomfield’s blog where back in 2013 she was talking about some Lincoln movie and arguing that a woman’s citizenship ought to be conditional based on her willingness to produce children, whereas a man’s is to sign up for selective service. Oy. Yeah, I read most of it and saw the little blurb in the comment section where she proffered doing away with the draft, but then right after that she talked about how everyone in this country should probably be subject to a couple years of some sort of mandatory civil service in order to qualify for full citizenship under the Law. Ugh…
Humans…can’t live with them, not allowed to shoot them and can’t yet ship them to Mars. When people start speaking like that it strikes me as awfully eerie. I wasn’t put on this planet to serve as disposable for this State, nor should any of us be unless we volunteer to do so. I will not bear children for any reason, regardless of what my government or fellow citizens might say or do. And I will not agree to requiring young people to sign up for 2 years of service in some State-ran program in order for them to have their rights recognized. No.
Fascism sucks, it really does. And yet it seems to be growing in popularity. Reason #201 for why I refuse to have children. This nation (and apparently most others too) has lost its damn mind. People don’t want freedom, they want to coerce one another to live up to ill-conceived ideals. Everything’s proving wholly unsustainable, especially the state of our social dynamics right about now. And I hear people lamenting the same sort of thing up in Canada and over in the U.K. and in Australia. There’s a new trend coming, a new world order on the horizon, and it’s being fueled by a shit-ton of ideologues.
Thankfully I’m not planning on living forever. These people want to make a bigger mess out of life and living, well, who can stop them, especially if they wind up backed by the power of the State? I can’t. But I don’t have to produce cannon fodder for them to use and abuse, since that’s all these ideologues really see one another as: means to suit their idealized end. Talk about treating people as disposable (which they go on and on about when it comes to men, but their solution is to have it apply to both males and females? Like that will improve anything. )
Human beings, man. Becoming the scum of the earth, generally speaking. Glad I won’t be here in 100 years to witness the fall-out of the latest hair-brain ideas to come down the pike.
It’s almost as if people are willfully aiming to get as many of us as possible to hate one another. For entertainment’s sake. Because some humans are so dissatisfied that they won’t be content until everybody else is thoroughly miserable as well.
Well, fuck it. Have at it, folks. Can’t stop you. Not even able to communicate with you when you’re all hopped up on ideologies and self-righteousness. I know it won’t turn out to be the utopia people are presumably dreaming of (if they even harbor fantasies beyond creating greater chaos), but humans love to learn everything the hard way.
Maybe extinction of our species isn’t such a bad thing. Maybe that will someday prove to be merciful. It’s a thought.
