Late Night Thoughts

I feel absolute ease when I imagine that the world became apocalyptic and that nothing else matters other than surviving.

When I watched shows like Jericho, movies like Melancholia, books like The Chrysalids and video games like Fallout I felt this incredibly powerful sense of calming that often times made me scratch my head.

It feels liberating that the biggest concern of anyones’ was to find food, survive, create a community, and safeguard it. The primitive desire to wake up each morning knowing what you’re doing is securing another day to live seems so beautifully rewarding.

We (speaking for myself mostly, of course) live in a world where we seem to seek the next high; technology, experience, conquest, material items and that has been becoming more and more of what I look forward to most. 

I often times tell myself to give all this bullshit up and to go live a more simpler life but they seem to be more fantasy or pipe dreams of mine. It’s like our lifestyle, in North America, has turned us into individuals with an abuse of our freedoms. We have the right to do anything we dream of and in that freedom we take for granted, so we spend the time watching TV, buying more clothes, cheating on our partners, getting wasted, and at the end of the day, being depressed and needing anti-depressants and therapy to get us back to being “normal”. 

What is the correct path? How does one attain happiness? How does one fulfill a life that has so many freedoms and choices? I don’t know?

…but Black people are animals for rioting and looting after the shooting of an unarmed teenager. Here, we see a few law abiding citizens turning the FVCK up over a hockey game and millions of dollars worth of damages…but that’s none of my…naw…SEE THIS MESS for what it is.
Black people in Ferguson are being called animals and white people who riot after hockey games are call FANATICS… Wake Up.

The difference is that these fanatics are Canadians and in Canada, owning/selling guns are illegal. I was there during the riots in Vancouver and the police never had to fire one bullet because the crowd didn’t possess instruments of death therefore police never had to worry about that. Also the police patiently started blocking off street by street and eventually forced the rioters to disperse. And who said white people weren’t called animals? And who said black people aren’t called fanatics? I’m tired of everytime something bad happens in the news, people look for ways to connect it to a racial issue - people of all races have evil in them. Look for ways to fix that maybe, not propagate further issue.

Perhaps it’s time to think about those gun laws and not blame it on black people or white people.
