It was a free choice this month about what to talk about, and I know I am late with this, but it has been a busy time. This month I apologise for not discussing Demonolatry, and deviating onto ethics etc.
I am of the opinion that the human race has lost its direction in development. Ethically, we treat animals with disgrace, we treat the third world with disgrace, and we treat mother earth (for want of a better term) with disgrace. All those in charge are interested in is making money. That is it. It doesn’t matter what hardships are enforced on those not in positions of power. Neither does it matter what irreversible damage is done to the planet. Just as long as profit is made and the shareholders are kept happy, then that’s alright and all is fine.
The hunger for material possessions has hit an all time high. The more we have, the more we want. We have people sitting outside Apple stores for 5 days (if not longer) waiting to be the first to buy an iphone 5 while at the same time people are having to sell their possessions to cover medical expenses for ill relatives. We pour money into third world countries via organisations like Save The Children etc. If saving the children was so important, then why do they pay their chief executive what they pay him – circa 120,000 US$. Governments spend billions on foreign aid, yet none of the money goes to help the general populous. Rather it tends to find itself spent on arms (generally bought from arms dealers approved, if not owned by the very governments who gave them the foreign aid money in the first place). Its all a complete sham.
The same goes for the so called idea of western democracy – total sham. The freedoms that we in the west are allowed are simply present to divert our attention from what is really going on. Do we really have any influence on what happens ? I don’t think so. Even though we are allowed some degree of free speech, it is not as free as once thought. We have to be VERY careful what we say or put up on facebook. You are allowed to have your own opinion, providing it agrees with the government approved opinion on the subject currently in favour at the time you make your opinion. Examples include immigration, gay marriage, illegal wars etc. Dr Kelly in the weapons of mass destruction court case is a prime example.
That’s enough from me. I would be interested to know what other peoples thoughts are.
