I am So Fucking Sick Of…It All

I am So Fucking Sick Of…It All

This is a rant. It’s not sugar-coated or politically correct. But the essence of it is simple…it’s me being pissed off and fed up with all the bullshit floating around out there and magnifying a tiny speck of it as I am wont to do every Friday.

So if this is something that you think might upset your precious sensibilities or political leaning, well have a nice day, ‘cause this isn’t for you.

Today I woke up to the joyous news that 50 Muslim worshipers had been gunned down in their New Zealand mosques by some piece of demented far right-wing scum.

All over the world people with no political axe to grind are being victimized by these rebels without a clue. And most of them are have no real concrete idea in their own heads about what is making them so fucking angry.

Instead they are being fed bullshit by the leaders of whatever movement they were dumb enough to get sucked into, and taught to salivate at the chance to be a hero in that particular cult of insanity.

You can argue politics till you are blue in the face, but this was not political.This was obscene. It’s all an obscenity, designed to gratify the egos of a few knowing they have control over the lives of so many. So many followers. So many victims.

And what does it prove? Does it make the world safer for the white race as so many of these far right people want? No.

Does stem the flow of migrants fleeing from wars that were started by greedy, mostly white rich men in the first place in order to ‘own’ whole countries and thereby control the wealth they contain?  No.

I am so fucking sick of it. I am sick of those who have turned the lives of human beings into collateral damage, mostly to keep wealth flowing to them while they suck the earth dry.

I am so fucking sick of all the walls that humanity has erected based on primitive ideologies that are the guidebooks for hatred and division.

I am so fucking sick of politicians who stand in front of millions of people and flat out lie to them, knowing that they will be believed because these people no longer can separate truth from lies. They have been perfectly brainwashed, and will buy the hats and keep on cheering for the pigs who own them,.

I am so fucking sick of the Internet and the media, which were supposed to be tools to expand and unify the world, being used primarily to broadcast propaganda from whoever has the money to pay for it.

I am so fucking sick of how stupid people have become. How vain and desperate for attention. How fearful for the future. How ignorant of the past. And how angry they have become about things don’t even feel all that deeply about.

My sister, who is very smart and reads a lot of history, feels that we are in the middle of a world wide cultural revolution.

I get her point, but on days like this when I hear about 50 innocent people gunned down in their place of worship, I start to wonder if this ‘revolution’ isn’t more a devolution than anything else.

And I am so fucking sick of…it all.

But we’re all humans and we will muddle through. We will keep on tripping on our own shoelaces which we have somehow forgotten how to tie. And we will eventually move the world forward.

But on days like this, it really does feel that forward is not the gear we are in.

I wholeheartedly agree with every word you wrote Jim and I to am sick to the pit of my soul at the massacres of the innocent and the only way I can get to understand why this allowed to happen to God fearing people is this.........God knows this fucker was evil..but we didn't..perhaps these beautiful innocent guys already agreed in principle to God that we should always uncover the truth whatever the cost...innocent people have given their lives for fucking centuries so the world can see who these perpetrators of so much decay can be known..that piece of shit is certainly 'known' now..so to Blair, Bush that hate filled racist Trump, his inane wall building and hatred of anything fucking decent in this world..their ego is always their downfall and I put the blame formerly on a group of non religious (but own the church) bastards who go under the name of the One Eye who's only remit is to set man against man in order to control and obliterate the majority of the world...we all know about these fuckers but so little is done to stop them as our lying politicians are owned by their own weakness and lust for power..how many more innocents have to be lost before this changes and hate is turned into love...

Jim, Some days I just want to have a magic wand I could wave to make all the naysayers, liars and extortionists go away. But I don't and it pisses me off...royally. And so it goes.

I watched the post murder scenario unfolding, live on television, Jim, numbed by the horror of it all, and incredulous that this could happen in the centre of Christchurch, the quiet and beautiful city at the heart of the South Island’s east coast; Christchurch, where my wife and I have sat in a flat bottomed boat while we were gently punted along the Avon River, which meanders through the Botanic Gardens and North Hadley Park, now infamous for being so close to this utterly senseless and horribly graphic scene of “man’s inhumanity to man”. This city and it’s buoyantly stoic people of mixed origins and religions will get through this, just as, only ‘yesterday’, they got through the devastating earthquake and its hundreds of aftershocks that levelled so many of it’s historic buildings and raised the same “Why here, why now, why us?” But for now, Christchurch can only come together again and jointly weep at the utter pointlessness of this slaying, eventually perhaps taking some solice in the fact that there are so many thoughts from around the world all wishing for the recovery of those left behind and who have been so unfairly and so undeservedly thrust upon the world stage. ⚰️✖️4️⃣9️⃣ 😢

I feel the same way. Don't really know how to proceed...trying to remain close to something resembling gratitude, compassion, and a way to meet survival, shelter needs in the waterwheel/wind turbine field and/or education about the psychological "fight or flight reflex" that many will have to learn to overcome in the adoption of same...and the sociological "nationalistic reflex" that many cultures will have to learn to overcome in the adoption of same...

#2 #2 It's tied to a movement because there was a manifesto left at the scene that spelled it all out. Even mentioned Trump by name

Do we know this was "far-right"? Why is that relevant? Why can't it just be an evil person? Why is it tied to a movement? You say in your article that this wasn't political but you made it political. Just asking.
