I started to write the following and then thought – It is a bit petty considering all the suffering and horror in the world — Then off on a tangent thought—What will I call it? — Sheep? – People think sheep are stupid but they are not! – From there I started thinking about the scapegoat which really upsets me — what a life leading others too their death?
So now am writing thefollowing so I don’t dwell on how horrible the meat industry is:-
If someone looks young and attractive they are treated with respect and considered to be intelligent caring people. Those who do not fit the stereo type of attractive are treated with contempt and considered stupid, deviant or criminal. The origins of this attitude are from the movies where attractive people are cast in leading roles as the good guy and the not so attractive as the villain.
This is not only wrong it is dangerous because sociopaths and psychopaths are usually attractive, charismatic people.
People are so controlled by the media. The example that comes to mind goes way back to 1980 when Lindy Chamberlain suffered trial by media and was convicted of the murder of her daughter Azaria. At this time, every person I knew considered her guilty! I was abused for saying I believed the dingo took the baby!
These days I have to tolerate people claiming they are supporting me because I am on an aged pension.
(Yet I paid more tax per fortnight in the 1990’s than I get for my pension now. I gave up a job that I had had for twenty years even though my “Work Cover” was approved. I found out that lawyers are afraid of “Work Cover”?)
People do not consider how much the politicians cost them. They support a corrupt system that is controlled by the multinationals and could not care less about the average person.
I haven’t watched the movie The Matrix for a decade and an half but my favourite line is “These people are so inured so hopelessly dependent on the system they fight to defend it”
Considering that there are ads on my blog I thought I would put one of my own.
In primary school the class was asked to write an essay entitled “My Wish”
I wrote that I wished people would care more about looking after nature and the planet than money.
Seeing that this is never going to happen in my life time or possibly ever!
I wrote this short story for myself and as sympathetic magick.
It is available on amazon.com as an E book.
It is $2.99 — $3.99 Australian
It threatens the status quo– just remember it’s (science?) fiction.
