    Let's be smart. Let's be special. Let's quote every man in history as a way of expressing ourselves through other people's words, when we could come up with something meaningful ourselves. Voltaire, Stalin, Jefferson. Anyone you like, so long as its what you think, and in someone else's words so you don't have to come up with it. Things have a habit of meaning more, when you do them yourself. Maybe that's why I've never been one to ask for help, regardless of how bad I needed it. I could sit there stuck on a math problem for the entire hour, or not understand it. I wouldn't ask how to do it. I'd half-ass it and hope it was right. Sometimes, success. Often times, failure. There are annoyances I have to face. You have to face. They have to face. You can't do anything about it either. It's a pleasent thought, isn't it? But the weak ones are the ones that are the creators and controllers of said annoyances, that can make them go away. You know what one of those annoyances is, for me? One-way minds. The minds that insist that the way they're doing things is the only way, and refuse to explore other possibilities, other methods, other outcomes. The ones who think if they don't continue the way they're going now. Right now. That they will fail miserably and be doomed for the rest of their life, regardless of if the path their own right now will ultimately lead to them being unhappy anyway. People. People are idiots. Last Tuesday, over half of america proved that they're ignorant, stupid, bastards. Trent Reznor said it best. "One step closer to the end of the world. The one-two combo of corporate greed and organized religion apparently proved to be too much for reason, sanity, and compassion. It's a sad and shameful day, to be an american."

    American. America. The United States of Hypocrisy. The land of the fr..wait. Freeze. Stop. The land of... what? The word is missing. Without purpose things disappear. The land of "blank." The purpose of the word "free" in that sentence has disappeared. It's reason for being there, now null and void, has caused it to discretely fade away as we head into the future. It's purpose used to be to explain that we are about freedom, choice, and practice of our own beliefs, without hinderence. What happened? Ironically, America, as many well know, went on it's own holy crusade to rid the world of the Red Scare, aka, communism. There are but few communist nations left in this world. Ironically, the U.S., grows closer to being one of them.

    Dateline, November 5th, 2004. Webb City, MO. A new student from Arkansas is suspended from school for wearing gay pride shirts. Said student is gay, and was a member of a Gay Youth club in their previous school. But. It's okay for kids to go around with anti-gay material, and pins that say "God made Adam and Eve, Not Adam and Steve." Atleast Steve isn't a slut. Shhh. I didn't tell you that. The picture is all wrong. No, not that picture. Go bigger. Even bigger. The biggest you can imagine. The entire fucking world, in a frame. The entire world is in a glass frame, and everyday a hammer is repeatedly being taken to that picture, breaking it, destroying it. The glass has shattered, much like the dreams of those who live there. One hit. Two hits. Three hits. You're out. It's no wonder the people like to live in their own little dream world, ignoring everything else around them. This the previous generation has left us with. Thanks mom and dad, grandpa and grandma. Thanks for fucking up the world, and handing it to us so we can try to put it back together. But again, wait. Broken, bruised, forgotten, sore. Too fucked up to care anymore. It's beyond repair. You can't fucking fix something, and you can't bring change, unless enough people are willing to do so. No. They aren't. They're too busy being happy fucking things up even further, blindly. Ignorance is bliss...until you get whats yours.

    We need a new world. Just go to sleep. Everytime I close my eyes there's a vivid new world waiting, chapters unfinished, fading. Dreams and nightmares were never more safe to live in, than they are now. Enjoy your dreams, because more than likely, that's all they'll remain.

      Not only are alot of things beyond fixable, but a sole individual can't change the world. You need more than a handful of people when compared to the rest of the world if you're going to try and change something. Truth is, there aren't enough people. Most people are satisfied with the way things are going, or if they care at all, don't care enough to do something about it. People generally don't give a shit one way or the other about anything unless or until it effects them personally in a way that gets their attention. Then there's people that are against change because they're for what it is that needs changed (kinda like Bush being in office...).

      As for the blog, it's not about whining, it's about realization and acception of things the way they are, even if I don't like them. That and just writing something as you think about it, aka free-style.

      I can't think of a single attempt to make fundamental changes to society that has worked. Even if the whole world suddenly realized what needed to be done and how, I don't believe we could organize ourselves enough to succeed.

      Revolutions aren't "humanistic" except in the sense that some anachronic system breaks down because it's not compatible with the current (material or economic) conditions. It's not that you're "going towards heaven" but that something changes. Sometimes inevitably. Everything is fixable yet fixing something does not grant you immunity from a million other issues... some of which are direct results of your fix. What was medicine one hundred years ago may be a malady today.

      What we have is constant revolution, because we're too slow to evolve in pace with circumstance.

      So because you don't think you can change anything, you're just going to sit on your ass and do nothing? Man, imagine what the world would be like if Martin Luther King had thought like that, or people campaigning for gay rights. Something's only impossible if you think it is. If you're not happy with the world, do something about it. Whether that involves campaigning against the system, or moving to another country, it's change. You're living in a free world: you can change the way you live, be glad you're not living in a dictatorship where you're burned at the stake for being gay/an immigrant/rebelling against society. Do you know why the world isn't like that? Because people spoke out against it. If you think all is lost, and that nothing can be done, then you're the one who's lost, and as long as you think that, nothing will ever be done.
