Alert: My post is going to be very different from this photo. So why did I put up this picture? – because I love the contradictions that life has.
My posts are mostly about how we are slaves to consumerism and capitalism and how we are in cages and being dumbed down by the system day by day.
I realised that this is true but there is also so much truth in the fact that we have control over our lives.
We live in a day and age which is the most physically convenient phase in the history of mankind. In an age where we do not have to go to the well to fetch water, do not have to put many efforts into getting the things that we need and want. Do not have to walk for miles to get to our destination. We do not have to wait for days to communicate like it used to be back in those times.
We have become slaves and autopilot robots out of our OWN CHOICES. We have made the system to be what it is right now and we have accepted the system. It is a vicious cycle.
Humans have been at the top of the food chain because it’s only us who have the ability and capability to get things we need close to us and to store things in a manner that we can go on long breaks without much effort. Well, I am not talking about exceptional creatures like some insects who store food. But I am comparing us to most other forms of life we know of.
So if we want to read a book, or learn how to ride a horse, or go for an evening walk or whatever it is that we want to do, we can make time for it. Like we make time for stalking people endlessly and watching shitty videos and reading clickbaity articles on the internet.
