Stop and ponder

01/09/2014

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.~Michael Ellner

Societal facts that are accepted as normal. How strange is that?

  1. We prioritise money and the economy over essentials like clean air, potable water, nutritious wholesome food, healthy environments and communities.
  2. We utilize an economic trading system that results in the death of millions of people each year.
  3. We divide the world’s land into sections and then fight over who owns these sections.
  4. We call some people “soldiers” which makes it legitimate for them to kill other people.
  5. We torture and kill millions of animals everyday needlessly for food, clothing and experiments.
  6. We send children to school for their entire childhood to memorize facts and skills that they will rarely use.
  7. We impose financial pressures on parents, causing them to miss out on significant stages of their children’s development.
  8. We have thousands of religions, each believing that their God or god-story is the only true and unique version.
  9. Love and compassion, which promotes life, are mocked as facile. Whereas war, which harms life, is seen as honourable.
  10. Anyone with a useful invention, can forcefully prevent others from using or modifying it.
