I’m reaching a point in life in which reality does not match what I believe and even what I see could be both true and false at the same time. Humanity is reaching a point that disgusts me to my very core. I see people dying on the streets and the media telling me everyone is perfectly fine and living happily. I see governments bombing others with the excuse of self-defense, yet when you look at the “terrorist” that attacked first, you realize how insignificant his attack was to justify such a reaction. Then, I see Presidents preaching about justice, equality and human rights, and they’re the first ones to turn a blind-eye at the massive genocides they’ve helped perpetrate in order to protect their “interests”. I see people being oppressed by dictatorships and living under fake democracies whose only purpose is to give an image to the outside world, so no one delves in their business. I also see students rising up to protest peacefully against injustice, only to be greeted by violence by the institution that’s supposed to protect them. I see corruption embedded deeply in the systems of government that the only way to rooted it out is to do a massive cleanse from within. I see innocent kids dying and suffering everywhere, while in the next block I see people working and spending their wealth in unnecessary luxurious items without any regard of what’s happening in front of their eyes. I see millions of people jumping in the bandwagon of social media to “spread awareness” to a cause only to forget about it 3 days later. I see groups of people angry, frustrated and standing up to make a statement, but they die alone because the society they’re fighting for is too comfortable to stand up and fight for themselves and the nation they adore.
Humanity fears change, yet it craves and prays for it to come. Humanity is waiting for a leader to change the reality they all know is wrong, but refuse to even try to change it.
Humanity is waiting for a leader to change the status quo that they don’t like but still accept. They are waiting for a leader to fight for them. But how can you expect someone to fight for you if you’re not willing to do so yourself? Stay comfortable and watch as your society and reality continues to crumble until all those very rights you once took for granted no longer exist. It all comes down to one decision: to revolt or not to revolt? If you’re waiting for a leader to lead you, then do everyone a favor and stay home. But, if you believe and know that what you’re living is unjust and inhumane and are willing to die for the land you call home so future generations can live freely, then stand up and revolt because by waiting all you’re doing is harming yourself and your society.
