THIS LIVEJOURNAL IS CLOSED FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE:)(may 2006)
FREE SPEECH if you please:
"Hate Humanity? Yep, sure do. There's such a lack of responsibilty for one's actions in the world, a selfishness, and a great destruction in the way people live their lives. It's all instant gratification,and who cares how my instant gratification affects those around me, or on a small personal level or a global level. The way people treat eachother is truly disgusting, and we've created an environment through advances in science and technology that allows for a very septic society to thrive. And we breed and breed, and all the wrong people breed while all the right people don't wanna have children because they don't wanna place them in this world." ~Davey Havok, AFI~
MY thoughts on this :
I have found that quote in some journals and was rather shocked that people could be in awe with such words! That sounds so pretentious and so judgemental! Goddess the "wrong people"???who is that guy coming from a music band,well he should do politics if he wants to change something instead of just having easy eloquent language to show off.
Things like that piss me off because I think it's totally absurd and very self important to say you hate, humanity,then kill yourself darling for you are right in the middle of this humanity,sorry!
I am not just an idealistic dreamer who thinks life is pretty and everything is fine! I am aware of the reality but does it gives me the right to say people should not breed it's so wrong? Who are they to say so? Is it so wrong to want to give life? Aren't we glad to be alive,to feel alive and to be able to feel,love,share,admire,gaze for hours at little things,small details of the beauty of this world,nature,human beings...
I do know that if we look closer we will always see something nasty,cruel and whatever in humanity and in the world,because nothing is perfect!
Who wants a perfect humanity?that's a scary nationalist ideology...
Maybe we value more people's knowledge and intelligence thanks to ignorance,maybe we value more the love,the compassion and empathy when we are aware of the cruelty,the carelessness and so forth... I dont believe humanity is all about selfishness
Of course we all live our live,we are egocentrical by essence,because we are us and till we are not devoted to God or something we are not totally self neglected so But anyways really I do believe in empathy,compassion,kindness for free!
I do believe in the beauty of humanity and all the things we can give,change,share,improve...I admire humanity for the way she always can evolve...
Now I am quite aware of so many unfair things that could or SHOULD be solved,like the fact some babies die in some countries because they can t have access to medecines! These things are unbearable,because it is not impossible...it's just a fucking money bullshit!
I dont think it's clever to make generality,because saying "the way people treat each other is disgusting' I can't relate to it,not at all
Sure we are human so we feel pain and that's why sometimes we make suffer those we love,we can be cruel,we can be silly,we can do very stupid things out of anger and I know it shouldn t be an excuse for it's silly! Yet I am not blind to the things we can do for another sister or brother,the way we can listen closely,empathize,try to understand and help,be there for somebody else because we are human only and we have lived or felt the same...
as for the progress of science and technology I am not very aware about all this,but even if progress scares me a lot sometimes ,when it is about finding remedies for illness like fucking cancers or aids,I am all for it...even if it has to kill animals sometimes if it can t be done otherwise,those illnesses make too much casualties and it something that truly broke my heart... We all know somebody or more who have died from cancer don't we? :(
