I really don't know how our society and the mankind in general has driven itself in such a pickle but I'm damn sure we're not backing ourselves out of this mess.
What sane is left in a world where people measure each other out by how they dress and how many brand logos they can see in their attire but don't give a fuck how the money for those things was attained. Only the prize is what people see, there's next to no concern about the means..
To make this crash-course even moderately steerable we'd need real, mutual decisions. Not a clown of someone elses agenda telling us useless catch-phrases or the media steering our thoughts to other "important matters" at hand.
I am open for everyone deciding about themselves.. well themselves, but one'd think that people would realize the abomination we've become.. People crossdressing, getting sex changes, gay marriages (and yes, the wedding has to be somewhere where it's considered inappropriate because I'm special and my special day should be special too, fuck their religion!).. We'll be wiped out surely sooner or later by our own actions. I don't think there's a need for a heavenly/hellish force, it's gonna be us fucking ourselves in the ass.
