Before you sigh in exasperation and roll your eyes, this isn't a moan, nor is it a complaint or denunciation of society. No, I'm past that, I've not accepted the way our planet is because i think it important that we dont. We should know the devils having their way with us. Anyway... Its just a rant. Hate It's rather easy to hate on our little planet right now and in some sick way us silly humans become hate addicts. Spitting venom is a drug, and like a drug it gradually builds a thirst that must be quenched. You start talking hate with your friends, its like smoking up in your mums back yard. Your hate grows, you find a group of like minded people, You start snorting coke off broken mirrors, you tell yourself you're just experimenting. Then your addiction gets out of control, you find yourself jacking up in a Mc Donalds Restroom with the wrong crowd, the most despicable and loathsome people of all; Those cowardly sots who use their "cause" as an excuse to hurt other human beings whilst feeling no remorse because they believe that their actions were somehow justified, in some cases because a man, who, one thousand years ago, said so in a book. I'm sorry for the drug metaphors, but that's how I see hate at the moment. That, however is not its only attribute. Hate is a virus, an aggressively contagious pathogen, which is spread with startling ease amongst narrow minded, ignorant and scared populations. You need only to look at our society to see how susceptible we are. World leaders and mass manipulators have taken advantage of this little fact for thousands of years. Hate is a powerful political tool when wielded correctly, it is a fantastic way to lead the mob, to control us, the people. If our governments can stir up hatred towards a group or a place for whatever reason, then they have us by the balls. The prostitute media spoon feeds us biased news reports and we greedily eat up atrocity after atrocity, and feel outraged at this new evil minority, then demand that someone do something. Our countries get their wars, our leaders get our votes, and we get someone to hate. Hate is powerful, its a shred of our animalistic past that still clings to our humanity like an ancient parasite. We become addicted to sharing it with others. This communion creates a primal feeling, a strange, twisted kind of joy that surfaces from our tribal past. We humans are a social race and modern society has destroyed that. Our once deep social bonds have been replaced by mass solitude, but our tribal instincts will always remain hard coded, just like a birds instinct to fly. Maybe this is where our readiness to hate comes from, from an instinctual longing to be a part of something with someone, because deep down, on a biological level, we feel alone. I know there are some yawning holes in that theory and some bad grammar and spelling, but if you could see me now, you'd see a tired, shrugging Welshman This all sounds woefully morbid, but relax, take a deep breath and look on the bright side, because for a rare, brief moment I'm about to get fluffy... This ancient tribal law also applies to something far more powerful. A force that knows no boundaries and spits in the face of common sense. It is deaf, dumb, and blind, but it is also unstoppable when unleashed and set in motion. When experienced as a group, as a tribe, it transcends human language and exposes the limits of our senses. Its something quite rare, but you'll recognize it when you feel it. When your with a group of people you trust unquestionably. Ugh, yes, I'm talking about love. Unconditional love though. The unconditional part is important, very fucking important. Unconditional love is very hard to come by, but its some good stuff. Without ego, religion or bias, completely free with no catches... I dunno, I'm not religious but whoever wrote all the stuff about loving each other and treating each other with respect and equality, those people were really onto something. It is a shame that all of these supposedly godly people completely ignore the most important part of their religion and quite possibly the most important part of being a member of this planet; to love unconditionally All, thoughts and comments are welcome. All points of view are welcome. If you disagree with anything I've said then go ahead and say so (I Know you don't need my permission) and I promise I won't get hurt in the butt.
