Are we the absensce of sense?
I wish I had an answer to that question, but I don't. Just as great poets and thinkers no more poem than they think they think they think.
We smoke because we think it does us good, even though we know how shitty it is.
We trust people we know to lie and cheat us.
We know we should protect our planet, we would do it per se, but we rely on people we cannot rely on.
We make choices when we have no choice.
We think that we are free, that we are safe and free when we follow rules, but we sit in a shitty birdcage.
We destroy knowledge to keep us stupid, so that others of us are smart enough to rule over us, only to have resistance again, which gives us knowledge and leads us to the status quo once again.
We believe in the imaginary friend of a deceased person whom we did not even know, but nobody believes in us and our friends.
We think that they do not see or hear what we do and say, but they hear every word, every year, every week, every day, at any time in almost any place.
We are nothing but lapdogs of men and women who have enough money to physically represent together the supposed residual value of the earth. People who abuse children, disgust others for fun, torture and kill, and who are only interested in money and power.
Why are we humans such idiots?
