I often am so amazed at to what human beings can accomplish and the various talents they have. Perhaps one in a million can add large figures in their heads and recognize that April 15th, 1685 was a Tuesday, or play the piano from birth like Mozart. Some can see inventions that change the world in their heads and then go bring them into being while s few others have the courage to go to the moon. Such talent in the hands of a rare few.
The one thing I see that all human beings are not only good at....but exceptionally good at...... is lying to themselves. We're all experts at this it seems. We do this far more often to ourselves than we ever would do to others in life.
We all seem to have this extraordinary ability to believe that starving people only exits in Africa or far away places. We honestly think that cruelty to animals occurs in isolated cases today in backward countries with no real government, when actually america and it's hunters and profiteers have wiped out whole species while we sit on the couch watching "Dancing With the Morons" and doing nothing as usual. How great it is to think if I send my $9.99 a month to Mexican so called charities, that child abuse will end, when the truth is it occurs every second of every minute of everyday in our own neighborhoods. Kids have no parents because they work themselves to death and no love or leadership as parents today want to be their "pals" instead of parents simply because that's easier and far quicker.
How great is to delude ourselves and mask who we really are as we kill millions of people under the disguise of "freedom". And how great it must be to live in a rose colored world that the vets that come home are wonderfully fit and our government or some group will take care of them. Nothing is my problem of course and others will carry the load for all of us, because I have tweets to make now and no time for anyone else but myself.
Perhaps the greatest deceit going is thinking we'll never die or get ill, and life here on this planet will not change for me when actually we never know when our last breath is being inhaled. My future says there will be a good job for me if I put in the work...I'll surely be able to buy a home with an education, and what I think or say doesn't hurt anyone or if it does...that's THEIR problem. Another one I'm always amazed at is that God looks the other way when I purposefully hurt others and steal, lie or swindle them of everything they have. The rich go to heaven even though Jesus clearly says that's not close to being the truth, but still...the only thing we're concerned with today is having "ALL" the money and wealth while others continue to suffer.
