In Our Crazy, Inverted World
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Gandhi said this. It was merely a revamp of Schopenhauer, who said of truth:
“All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
If you look back in history, this is absolutely true. People killed each other over whether the Earth was round or flat, until the number of those believing it to be round reached the tipping point where it then became self-evident.
You see the insanity everyday.
You know you do.
And you think, “Geez, Has the world gone crazy?”
You’re seeing the truth. But, then you deny it, turning it around onto yourself: “No, it must be me.”
That’s the Big Mistake.
It’s not you. The world is crazy; backwards; inverted; insane. Even an army of psychiatrists couldn’t help fix the problem. Mainly because most of the time, they’re in need of help from their own professions.
This is why “a bird born in a cage thinks flying is an illness.” And that’s exactly what has happened to us. It’s as if an asylum for the criminally insane has let the inmates loose and somehow they’re now running the show. Just look around at the insane, backwards world we live in:
We have bankers lending us money that doesn’t exist and charging interest on it.
We have doctors supposedly healing the sick when the biggest killer in the United States is the treatment;
We respond to cancer by killing the patient with chemotherapy and radiation which destroys the immune system and opens the door to even more cancer, and much else.
We have vaccines allegedly boosting the immune system when they are actually destroying it;
We have scientists telling us how everything works when they don’t have a clue about the true nature of reality and thus no clue about how everything works.
We have teachers telling children and young people whatever our insane and ignorant system dictates, no matter how flawed and fraudulent it may be;
We have political parties competing for office when behind the scenes, all are controlled by the same force—which is why the same agenda unfolds no matter who is officially in office.
We eat and drink chemical poisons in our food and water, along with many either unaware, apathetic, or appearing to think this is perfectly okay.
Also, we have genetically-modified food that is genetically-modifying us and yet most people never even consider the possibility nor the implications.
Governments and the military industry profit from creating disasters and running biological “trial experiments” on the unknowing citizens whose tax dollars feed their children.
We have a media with no idea what is going on in the world telling us what is going on in the world;
Fake news has taken the place of Real News.
Our TVs now watch and record us.
We have our freedoms constantly deleted to protect our freedoms;
We pay to have devices in our pockets and homes record our private conversations to be listened to by Google workers, and have them stored in the event that they could be used against us.
When we marry the people we love, we also invite the government to be in marriage with us as a constant third wheel that makes money if we decide to divorce.
If a man pretends to be a woman, we are required to pretend with him.
Instead of two sexes, there are as many genders as there are metal music subgenres.
If a child believes he is the opposite sex, parents encourage it by feeding him/her hormones, while some are even willing to surgically modify their own child’s genitals—even before puberty.
Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegal Mexicans voting in our elections is good.
It was cool for former Vice President Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it was an impeachable offense if President Trump inquired about it.
Christian fundamentalists are outraged at the amount of violence, sex, undead vampires, and other horrific themes seen in movies, books, and videogames, yet hold all of their faith in a book filled these exact themes, and centering around a man who dies and comes back from the dead.
We believe we live lives based on morality in a world full of denial, fear, lies, hypocrisy, ulterior motives, and secrecy. Morality is a social construct based on the popular opinions of a society–act accordingly.
Rather than understand and show compassion for drug addicts, they are hypocritically shamed and demonized by a society that is heavily medicated on legal drugs that have a much higher death count than illegal drugs.
Doctors have become the biggest and most successful drug dealers, thanks to a newly revised motto—Wealth over Health.
Our most deadly drug is also the most used over-the-counter drug (Acetaminophen).
Actors are paid millions of dollars for one movie when restaurant servers/waiters—who are the best actors (putting on a smile while dealing with incompetent and entitled assholes all day) are paid minimum wage.
Twenty is too young for one to drink a beer and kill oneself with cigarettes, but eighteen is old enough to vote and kill your own child with abortion.
We shutdown our economy—destroying the businesses and livelihoods of millions—for a supposed “virus” with a death toll under 100,000, while nothing is done about cardiovascular disease killing 16 million per year. (Also, 800,000 suicides/year, 1.2 million automobile deaths/year, 1.6 million diarrhea-related deaths/year.)
People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves, and who also help to destroy any history or proof of their actually being slavery.
Millions and millions of dollars have been paid in reparations to the Jewish community for the Holocaust, yet nothing has been paid to Catholics, whose death rate trumped that of Jews, especially in such camps as Auschwitz.
People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for useless degrees.
Getting a college degree only says that you paid thousands of dollars for a piece of paper proving how you had put yourself in debt while learning how to regurgitate inaccurate information of how our world works, along with the liberally-biased opinions of your professors.
We believe that democracy is an ideal form of government, even though the Founding Fathers despised the idea, for it only divides a nation, putting them in constant conflict with each other.
We believe we live in a capitalistic, democratic, republic of the people, yet have a World Bank control us with false debts, social security numbers, birth certificates, and paper no longer backed by gold, silver… anything for that matter.
$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, and it seems like a great plan to us.
College students and leaders of a current mass movement are calling themselves Marxists when they don’t know anything about Marxism, Communism, or how nearly 100 million people were killed under Stalin and Mao’s communist regimes.
We see our rights being taken away as a direct result of political-correctness, and see this as “progress.”
People believe they have the right to be liked by everyone. If someone doesn’t like them, like infants they whine until more restrictions are implemented on everyone else, so their feelings don’t get hurt. Thus, ushering in a “nanny”-state of totalitarianism. Progress…?
Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists,” “crazy,” “insane,” or “mentality-ill?”
Yes, this is the world we have created. Let’s fix it.
