Society

Society.

This society isn’t built for honesty. It’s built to get ahead...to push others down. To be a machine. To be the same. To be silent.  To lie. To have hidden agendas. To be anything else but yourself.
...
Society puts on all these layers over the bones of our spirit - how we should look, how much money we should make, what age we need to be, what skin color, what words we should use, what gender we should be, how many kids we should have, what car we should drive, what questions we can ask, what mood we should be in, what expression our face should be making - so many layers are piled on top of us, it’s impossible to pinpoint where our soul is...but when you take everything away - the clothes, the mirrors, the electricity, the lightbulbs, the noise, the thermostat, even the showers, everything society has force fed us to believe we need, and get rid of the things that take away our power and give it to something else, it’s a lot easier to find where the screaming is coming from, and then it’s a lot easier to figure out how to make it stop.
...
Why is it that the less and less I have and the more that is taken away, I am finding more and more meaning to life? How deep is this lie society has taught us that we need more and more? How buried are we in materials, wants, and supposed needs? What if all we really need is what nature provides? The more and more I dig myself out of the grave society has built for me...for us...and the closer I get to nature, I am finding being alive makes a lot more sense.
...
How does one study sociology and still want to be a part of society?
...
Religion is the Biggest Scam:
Money is the Devil...the Earth is God...yet they worship money and trash the Earth.
...
The more somebody is in the system...immersed in society...the more I wouldn’t trust a damn thing they say, believe, or do.
...
People who run around saying be kind to everyone - they just want people to be kind to them. They know damn well you can’t run around being kind to everyone. You’ll get eaten alive. Be real.
...
I’m not going to change who I am or what I believe for money or status. That’s what I’m out here trying to unlearn and undo.
