recycled ideas, someone has always thought it before you did.

are we living the lie? humans, as i see it, tend to cover a lot of things up. why? because one in ten people (i pulled that figure from my bum, but i'm sure you're not one of these people) actually beleive appearance is everything, and the other nine are just pulled along for the ride. you don't need to feel good, you need to look good. you don't need to be healthy, you just have to look healthy. you don't need to be happy, you just have to smile. you don't need to do anything as long as you appear to be doing something. you don't need inner beauty, you need make-up. you don't need to know who you are, you just have to pretend to. you don't need to be in control, but you better look like it. to some extent, our generation is the one digging up the racism, the sexism, the animal rights, the ethics, the focus on inner wellbeing. but like every generation before, we bury it before it becomes too hard. too difficult to point out the problems in our little world without being labelled an extremist by people 'who believe in nothing and care about nothing'. one in ten of which actually do. but thats the trend at the moment, isn't it? if you don't care about a problem, its not really a problem. you don't need help, you just need to not care...
get out your shovels, we have some work ahead of us...

Good points. Everyone can be so superficial nowadays. It has reached a point that our sense of morality, of decency, and of self-worth, have reached all time lows despite the advances that we have made as a civilization.

Everyone has to be more that what they really are, or at least, give that impression. Being pretensious has its pitfalls...I guess that's why there's a lot of unhappy and depressed people around.

Sad but true...

Hey Ronald, thanks for your comment. It's nice to know that someone agrees with my world view. Maybe if everyone agreed it wouldn't have to be like this. peace out.

I agree with everything you wrote, except the figure. I think it's 9 in 10 is misled by appearances. It's only a rare person who looks right at the substance.
