The pressure to integrate and conform.


I’ve been thinking about something for a long time now.I’ve always been a bit odd. I used to be quite the hermit and wouldn’t talk to anyone except one or 2 people. That was a long time ago. Oh, how far I have come! Right? Is it really something to be celebrated? I can’t but see the things I’ve lost along the way.

You know, people tend to believe that the system is all reaching and cannot be fought. and that is simply not true. Behind the big face of goverment is someone mother, or someone’s uncle, and so on. they are real people. and they really care about you. And they think it is wrong as well. almost all of them do. I’ve seen it.

everything has become a little bit absurd.
People keep blaming the youth for being lazy when in fact it is rather that every little thing requires mountains of paperwork or someone might get sued and oh god the economy is crashing and you’re dead weight even though money is an absurd concept that makes no sense in this day and age!

It is based on the idea of scarcity. everyone needing to pull together to ensure the survival of the community. But what Scarcity? People waste their wages on cheap junk and clothes shopping while supermarkets throw away perfectly good food (about 50% gets thrown away and wasted!) It’s madness! We’ve outgrown the system. Grow up world. With the advent of mechanisation making most jobs redundant, they invented pointless jobs to employ people among other things. The machines will pay for it. not the taxpayers. But as I sadly realised one day: The system isn’t broken. it’s working exactly as intended. The class system never dissolved. Democracy? America is a republic. Australia is a constitutional monarchy. not sure what you are on about. in any case the democratic process is mostly for show. only 2 parties ever get elected. I like this image.

This is the ‘choice’. same way the natives ‘graciously’ get some of their lands back. but it’s all desert.

I just hate the fact that the world doesn’t make sense. If it did I would gladly do my part.

Why is it that a person can’t make a living writing about things like this? I feel so frustrated. Why can’t I be a philosopher or writer by trade without going off to university and getting the oh so vaunted piece of paper? And even then, something tells me It’d make no difference.

  1. Oh,yes, yes, yes. Well said. We don’t have a democracy and we are not free. I can’t really comment on Australia, but we in the UK behave (rather our government, encouraged by (international) corporations, behaves) as if we were not one of the 10 richest nations. All power to those who are ‘odd’!

  2. You’re right, and I wish I had some answers, or some solutions, but I don’t. If one of the ‘experts’ has examined you and signed a piece of paper to say that you’re ‘autistic’ (which is meaningless in real terms because it’s a spectrum, so to some extent everyone is) you may be able to get exempted from the application for jobs and attending interviews and so forth. It might make your life a bit easier, but it doesn’t – obviously – solve the problem of all that’s wrong with the way society works.
    Keep writing and putting the thought out and gradually others will do the same and the world may change. You are making a difference.
