DON'T FUCK THE SYSTEM
You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
“The System” is a myth, all we have is people trying to amass means for themselves, some are considerate in their approach while others will use any tactic necessary (and there is a range of people in between these two extremes).
People who use corrupt methods appear to succeed more than those who are strait, but it depends on a few things: 1) What exactly you consider success to be and 2) how much you have to spend on security once you ruin other peoples lives.
@hybridext, Haters gonna hate.
Keep in mind that Sasho is a foreigner and keen on the alcohol, and that not everyone thinks like you do. Are you trying to understand him? Give it a shot before you start laying the blame.
And don’t you think it’s more than a little bit ironic that you call someone else a drama queen in such a melodramatic fit of a post?
I don’t like drama, I stay clear of that stuff as much as I can. Other people’s reactions to my stuff is not my responsibility, and frankly I don’t care.
I curse a lot, that’s just an idiomatic factor, has nothing to do with a mood or mindset. I don’t tip-toe around the bush, and I don’t sugarcoat shit. That doesn’t mean drama.
Widen your views, mate.
Oh, and, fuck the system.
@wacea, Really.. where can I start. Fuck the system it’s trash and obsolete. Lets gain our “success” but fuck the poor and the starving and the people dying in wars and fuck the environment. Really though fuck the environment lets burn some more gas and throw more of it in the water. Let’s cut down all the damn trees already what’s taking us so long? The US is the best nation in the world so fuck the other countries and lets just launch some atomic bombs on them. The poor are poor because they want to be poor, yea lets tell ourselves that. It’s not because of the unequal opportunities and because of the mega rich hoarding resources. It’s not because they are born into a community that breeds more and more “poor” people. Yeah lets sacrifice the planet and pretend we don’t have all these problems and pretend that we aren’t getting fucked so we can be “happy” achieving a lot of “success”
@hybridext, I’m still searching for the sweet spot of expressing myself about the system without being completely in love with it. The system automatically destroys itself and the more social influence a person has, the more delusions of humanity arise. I always thought I’m straightforward and not subtle, this is new. In person I wouldn’t reply to a comment directed at me when talking about something else, because it’s proven to be useless. Higher level of thought? If I google that I’ll probably find this site. But you’re right, I don’t illuminate my negativity with the bullshit of others.
@beyond, @manimal, The pair of you are unbelievably pretentious. Particularly you, ‘Sasho’, if you want your point to be understood, phrase it in a way that makes sense. You don’t have some higher level of thought, you just have too much time on your hands. By all means, express your opinion, but please, stop that subtle bullshit and say what you think for a change. I doubt in person you’d talk in such symbolism. And manimal, damn bro, no need to be such a drama queen all the time (though I do enjoy reading your post’s)
@ijesuschrist, sometimes it is that easy, sometimes it isnt. When you have bills to pay, you cant always just quit a job and try and start something new without certain income. I do things on the side now that i enjoy to make extra cash, but the problem with realizing these things now is that changes take longer than you want them to. So for some (me) its a process not a rash decision, its about making one change at a time. So now is my time of education and learning about the world because i was blind to it for the first 25 years of my life, not caring about my health, societies problems, world problems, being controlled but told you’re free. I was ignorant because i didnt think i was directly affected, but now is a time for change because once you know you have to choose to not change and that is harder than just saying i didnt know. This is why its important to share the things you learn and try and learn and educate yourself on the problems the world faces, because in the end were all effected especially while the world becomes more “global”. Got a little off topic but thats what happens in these discussions.
Money isn’t everything.
There is much to be gained without getting or having a big bank account.
Cheesmo may be useful for education and sustenance but a devotion to gaining “the good life” like the millionaires would probably end in rampant ego.
You are right though, if you truly want wealth and prestige then you do have to bend the rules.
No, I understand completely, I am still struggling a lot with ego, I can relate, “Many a year of hurt, extreme contemplation, excess, unfocused actions, hate, low esteem and a true desire to die kick starts this state, the cross to bear method. ” as I remain there still by the thread of one last childish act, the constant smoking of the sticky goo, and its been really sticky for a loonnng time, but now a new plane of awareness awaits, I can see it, taste it, know how to get there, but there’s a lock on it, the key of which means gaining complete control of myself through the removal of all things opposing it.
What made you, “Now I let go, accept, analyse, adapt, feel, not so much take action as belong” was it a full release of emotion where you allowed yourself to feel as well as analyze?
I see the answer in what you wrote, you replied by defining the state L would have to be-in in order to be the way he is and how this translates to you. L’s state is achievable, the question is, can the individual become aware of this and recognize how.
@ijesuschrist, “Saying fuck the system doesn’t have many better outcomes, but the changes are dramatic, and only when all has “settled” out do we get to see what we have seen. It also is chaotic, and sometimes destructive in nature. To me its much more interesting, and based on the sole idea that “everything will work itself out” makes me rather favor this, just for the pure excitement.
But, alas, I’d rather just go sit in the woods.”
hahaha, were so on the same page.
@cbrock, You’re right. It’s unfortunate how many people define success monetarily.
But I do agree with @wacea in that people should take advantage of what they’ve got, rather than complain about it. In my opinion, the motivation should be not to “reach the top,” but to find happiness in their own lives… And if you’re never content with your situation, you can never find happiness in it.
There’s a correlation between perpetual pupil dilation and how ‘in the moment’ you are, I’ve been able to apply this theory by calling out an individual on his mind due to him having this attribute. Shawn, I came to find out, has a photographic memory
If there is any system that is involved in ANY kind of corruption, then I say fuck it. I believe that true prosperity comes from wholesomeness and it all starts from the inside. @wacea, You say that money equals power and that may be true but ask yourself, is it a good power or bad power?
“To me its much more interesting, and based on the sole idea that “everything will work itself out” makes me rather favor this, just for the pure excitement.”
K, but chaos on the individual level is one thing, chaos on a societal shift level is a completely different animal, you would NOT enjoy the reality of it and yes, there probably would be non-stop excitement, but it would be more in the terrified, reality is now gone, kinda way.
Honestly, all of you are making such valid points. I don’t believe in the system. I hate the fact that I have to bust my ass each and every day to make a living. I hate how they legalize a substance like alcohol, which was the main reason I got arrested last month for assault, but they make it illegal to smoke weed which just helps meditation. But all I’m saying is, if you do what is required, that is follow the rules, get your education, make your money, no one can say shit to you. You have money which means you have the power to control individuals thoughts, which in turn means you can change the way people think about the world. I’m in the same boat you guys are. I’m a 4th year finance student who was arrested for getting into a fight with 4 guys who jumped me. Long story short, I was drunk as a mother fucker, and the other guys got it much worse than I did and filed a police complaint which led to my suspension from uni. But it all occurred cuz we were drunk. I would probably be friends with the dudes I fought if we all smoked a joint together. All I’m saying is, the system is flawed but we gotta work with in it in order to live a better life than we already are.
@ijesuschrist, I saw you wrote about changing the system from the inside, and how it would be really slow, sadly that’s impossible. We are not the first to realize that the system is broken, nor the first to believe it should change. there are non-corrupt politicians, non-corrupt people out there working for the right. All oppressed, all unheard. The system makes us believe that you can change it as people change, sadly another impossible,
I’m not saying people should go out start riots, break windows, and attack officials, Look at the UK, 2010 riots 2011 riots, 2012 riots, and there will probably be a 2013 riot because nothing was fixed,
