Youre Wrong

Isn't it amazing how often you're wrong? I mean that you, as a person, have no idea how to live and haven't got the foggiest clue how to make your own decisions. I know, it's kind of hard to swallow when put right in your face like that, but the fact is that you swallow exactly that every single day of your life.

The sheer perfection of the system we've designed is amazing. Do not misunderstand me, this "perfection" isn't a good thing. The system we have designed was essentially based on one thing, taking responsibility away from us, and passing the buck onto that very system. We invented religion so we could pass the buck to god and our "inability to understand his will". We invented government so someone could represent us, as a group. And at first, both of these systems started with something very small. It started with one person thinking someone else could make a better decision about their life than they could.

Schooling, financial status, and even the priesthood are all examples of someone else trying to be "better" than someone else. That quest, in itself, makes others feel like "lesser" individuals. They feel as though, because they did not follow schooling, become a businessman, or find religious bliss, they are insignificant and have no effect on their own reality.

How many people do you know that consult a "therapist"? Why? Because for some very strange reason, they think that this "schooled intellectual" will know more about their life than they do. They feel as though they are wrong, and wrong in the very subject they can never go wrong?themselves. Meanwhile, the patient therapist gets paid a hundred bucks per hour just to be "unbiased". For a hundred bucks, how unbiased do you think I would be? A friend is different, a therapist is just there to make more money and the bank is you.

It's so hard to tell someone "you're hurting yourself", especially when they don't think they are. So many people think that this mad race for acceptance by our peers is an ideal way to live. They think that without approval they are nothing. They live their entire lives struggling to maintain an image that "society" wants, and they never stop and think that "society" has no right to ask anything of them. How many people do you know who feel stressed out? How many of them feel stressed all the time? They whole point is that you and I both have one right. We have the right to exist. We have the right to exist comfortably and free. We have the right to walk away from the constant expectations, to abandon the pointless rules, and strip power from the very people designed to take our responsibility away from us. We have the right to be ourselves.

So, are you always going to be wrong?
