Evolution To Devolution

April 9, 2018

We have memed and over populated ourselves out of anything reflecting “the sanctity of life”.

 

We went from

Cave paintings to hieroglyphics

Papyrus to paper

Books to bibles

Definitions to dictionaries

Rules to laws

Smoke signals to radio waves

Coins to cash

Telephones to television

War department to defense department

Truth to euphemism

The Moon to Mars

Encyclopedias to infinite information

Satellites to cell phones

Typing to touch screens

Banks to bytes

Beliefs to perceptions

Talking to texting

Tiny towns to manic megalopolises

Farms to food factories

Serenity to surveillance

Protection to brutality

Corruption to collusion

Legislation to concentration

Objective news to obnoxious opinions

Misinformation to manipulation

Recidivism to for profit prisons

Leaders to puppets

Talking heads to talking trash

People to polluters

Mother Earth to leaking landfills

 

 

“Is This The World We Created?”

– Queen

Just look at all those hungry
Mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the
Suffering we breed

So many lonely faces
Scattered all around

Searching for what they need.

Is this the world we created?
What did we do it for?
Is this the world we invaded
Against the law?
So it seems in the end.

Is this what we’re all living for today?
The world that we created.

You know that every day
A helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care
Inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man
Is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by.

Is this the world we created?
We made it on our own.
Is this the world we devastated
Right to the bone?

If there’s a God in the sky looking down,

What can (S)he think of what we’ve done
To the world that (S)he created?

 

“So at best, the sanctity of life is kind of a selective thing. We get to choose which forms of life we feel are sacred, and we get to kill the rest.

Pretty neat deal, huh? You know how we got it? We made the whole fucking thing up!

Made it up, the same way we made up the death penalty. We made them both up, the sanctity of life and the death penalty.

Aren’t we versatile?!”

– George Carlin
