Will the real dude please stand up?
The world is full of shit. That, whether you choose to ignore it or believe it, is the fact. There is shit all around us.
And the shittiest part is that we walk on it. The shit has become a world. There is no walking space left in our sad lives. We find ourselves walking in a quicksand of shit.
Of mirthless muck.
The more we try and get out of it, the more smelly we become. The more disgusted we get with ourselves. But the funny, and almost ironical thing is that we dont want to get out of it. Habit? Maybe. Maybe we've just got used to being in this mess. We've gotten used to being disgusted. Nothing disgusts us any more.
No one stands up and shouts. There is a multitude. There is a throng. But there is no ONE who stands up and says that he doesnt belong here. That he wants to change anything. Everyone has got used to it. Everyone has become everything he sees.
And yet, the most funniest part, I think is WHY people dont speak out. Because, by speaking out, they would be breaking one of the most fundamental rules of society. The unwritten rule of being a hypochrite.
If they speak out, if they stand up among the throng, they will be expelled from an exile they didnt belong to in the first place.
Why does no one speak out?
Has everyone reconciled themselves to everything?
WHy does no one stand up?
Speak out. It matters.
