I'm Ready For The Asteroid
I sit in the dark. Pretending to be unavailable. I am tired of people. I can't go a whole day without someone's ignorance sets me off. The unwillingness of masses of idiots to put forth any kind of brain power for deductive reasoning, let alone common sense. I'd like to think it's just the world around me. The sum total of the brain trust one would expect in a fast food restaurant kitchen. Alas, this is not the case. The stupidity and ignorance runs rampant. Social media helps spread the infection.
Suddenly, everyone in America has taken to pleading to their fanbase to listen to their cries of political injustice happening before my very eyes. Which side of the fight they are on is irrelevant. It starts with pleading. Begging. Fearmongering. Then it devolves in to fighting, bickering and in the end no one has changed their mind.
No, the high road they take is not unfriending the person they've just had their flame war with, fully aware there's a meme or a hundred out there for people who take that very action.
People who pretend to be upset about something happening outside of the scope of their immediate world. Something they can't control but feel better about because they are opposed to it. Meanwhile, the town around them continues to suffer drug problems, crime problems, small businesses failing because no one shops there. No way, local shit means they'd have to leave the house. Maybe stay off the phone long enough to engage and try to make a difference.
It's just my opinion here, but I think humanity has passed the event horizon in the downward spiral of our civilization. And sadly, I am glad. I don't even care if I'm one of the first casualties. If humanity is going to persist, it needs a reality check. Like a big rock from outer space. Something they weren't expecting. Something that if it doesn't unite us, it kills us all.
