If life is a game, then the human race as a whole is most definitely losing. I say this because instead of taking advantage of millions of years’ worth of evolution, of the fact that we have common sense to separate us from beasts, we instead decide to fight and argue and bicker and kill and design weapons of mass destruction and threaten one another with them. Rather than making communities safer, gun laws are made more lax. Instead of cooperating peacefully with other nations across the world, we are willing to kill to prove our beliefs are more righteous than those of others. Instead of accepting one another’s choices in life, we protest in the streets, claiming everything “unethical.” So many pointless murders have happened during our very short existence.
Religions were intended to unit people and spread peace. Instead, they have managed to create more differences. Anti gay vs pro gay marriage; pro life vs pro choice; conservative-minded and liberal-minded. And to a larger scale: religious wars. So many people seem to misinterpret religious texts, taking it to their advantage by claiming that god meant this land to be theirs, or that they are superior to others, or that they kill in the name of god, so it’s alright.
Humans all throughout history have viewed themselves as superior to others rather than embracing differences. Europeans barged into Africa, claiming territories and murdering tribes because they believed that these people, from whom all civilisation has sprung, are inferior to white men because they have skin of a different colour. Really? You’re going to walk into their land and say that they are lower than you?
The world is a fucked up place and I’m mad.
