It’s strange to me that people so easily accept the violence around them. The fact that children can no longer play outside without supervision, the fact that they can never be left alone, because they can be taken, violated, or killed, seems insane. No one talks about the fact that life has become too dangerous to allow kids to play outside alone. It would appear that adults have already accepted the fact that their kids can’t go out without them. Children’s freedom has been erased and no one either noticed, cared or realized that it shouldn’t be that way.
It’s the same with everything that’s taken from us. We just seem to ignore what’s going on. I think the day will come when we won’t be able to do that. We won’t be able to ignore the things that are being done to us. We won’t be able to keep giving our children to the state to fight in wars for greed, we won’t be willing to spend our lives working for less, so the rich get richer, we won’t be willing to stay in our homes because it’s too dangerous to go outside. We won’t be able to turn away and when that happens, we’ll have to fight back. It would have been easier if we began fighting years ago, but apparently, we still need to wait for that tipping point.
And those generations behind us should have been stopping what was going on…for us. Things weren’t as easy to see…back then, however. Back when wars were the wars to end all wars. When there were no computers and news wasn’t 24-hours a day. But we know better. No one even tries to hide today’s corruption. They’re proud of it. They’re laughing all the way to the bank at how easy it is to make us work for them.
Meanwhile kids are growing up being monitored from the second they’re born. No privacy, no freedom. Rather than build more monitor to track our kids, maybe we should try and make society safe for them. Maybe for ourselves as well.
