We Are Destined to FAIL!

The truth about our "perfect society"

― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club (One of the few that are aware, and awake)

“Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think every thing you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned.”

"Is that what you really think... or is that what they'd want you to think?"

This quote was first said by the main character V, in the movie V. He said this to his apprentice Evey. In the movie, she has preconceived ideals that she got from her surroundings growing up in her dystopian society. She was taught from a young age the "proper" way to think. What V was simply trying to do was get her to think outside of the box that her post-modern society has placed her inside of. What she thinks is what she was brought up to think, but not her true ideals and thoughts from her own consciousness. If we as a society conform to the ideals that are placed upon us through mediums such as television, radio, and popular culture, we will eventually lose the ability to think on our own and just like Evey, our thoughts will not be our own.

Are you awake?

I know you are physically awake, because you are obviously looking at this document that I have written, but are you AWAKE? There are powers in this world that are controlling you. Even the people who think they are individuals are not individuals. They have a preconceived idea of what individualism is. Think about this. If you had 5 exact replicas of yourself, and they were each raised different ways, and in different environments, wouldn't you expect that they would all grow up to be completely different individuals? Yes, because they become what they were surrounded by. So from a young age we were pretty much predestined to become what we are, or what we will be. For instance, if a child were to grow up in a Christian house-hold, more than likely, the child will be a Christian as an adult. As you are probably aware, there have been several wars around the globe over religion, and which group is right, and which one is wrong. The people who preach their religion now were definitely not around when the world was created. The people who speak upon divine intervention and divine powers have no proof that an omnipresent presence has touched the lives of people. Religion is based upon faith of the deity that they worship. All I want to know is, if you have faith, and believe in an all-powerful being, why would one need to go through an organization such as a church to "get close" to that entity? On top of that, when you go to a church, you are being spoken to by other human beings who speak on the topic of "God" as if it were fact. Taking into consideration that many of the major denominations do not believe that there is a God on this Earth right now, isn't it reason to believe that they may be wrong about what they are saying? So when the supporters of these groups go to these churches, they are putting their faith in faith of other people’s thoughts about what other humans wrote hundreds of years ago. Are you beginning to see where I am coming from? We have formed large clusters of people who share the same feelings, and are taught what to love, what to enjoy, what to do, and what not to do. It doesn't end there though! Religion is not the only place where we have been brainwashed into becoming what we are today. What about music? How come African Americans seem to love hip-hop, but dislike country? Is it a conscious decision on each of the individuals parts to dislike a specific type of music, or is it that they are around peers, and family, and friends, and they all listen to that type of music? It makes more sense that the longer you are around something, the more accustomed you are to it, and the more odd that something is to you, the more likely that you will stray away from it. If there are ideas that have been told to you for all of your life, and you buy into it, when someone comes along and gives a different opinion, the majority of people will think that they are automatically wrong, or will at least fight for what they think is the right thing. This entire body of work all boils down to one simple concept. You are not who you think you are. You are the product of your environment, and so is everyone else. We respond to stimuli and through learning, we have become who we are. If a newborn baby was born in an environment with nothing, just a vast emptiness, no sounds, no sights, no feelings, and it could live without food or water, what would it become? “You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We're all part of the same compost heap. We're all singing, all dancing crap of the world.” (Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club) You are not the music you listen to. You are not the color of your skin. You are not your wardrobe. You are not your friends or family. You are a human being, and you have a mind to make your own decisions. Get up and be your own person! You do not need the media, or your family, or your mom, or your dad to tell you who you are or what you should want from your life! Be what you want to be! "Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic."(Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club) Don't die a waste of human existence. Don't die a person who did what he was told simply because he was told to. Stand up and ask "WHY DO I HAVE TO DO THIS?" Fight for the life that you want, not the life that "the man" wants you to have. Ask the hard questions. Be different. Fight for mental freedom, because all though we all are physically awake and moving through life, we are all drones, and we have been told what to do, and are stuck in situations that we don't want. So here is your chance to regain your mental freedom. Stand up, shut off your computer, and go live your life, YOUR WAY.


Wake up, before its too late.

(I hate this) Poem (But this is the society we live in)

Girls all over hunting for a dude

Guys with the girls are always the coolest

Some guys in it for the sex. some for the mood

Did you hear about so-and-so sucking on her breast

Your lame and your soft

If you auctually had a girl I bet shed be plain

You can only call my girl plane cuz shes fly when she takes off

The whole room sees Im better, cuz you dont have game

There is a group of two, the in and the out

I know your lonely, your in the out crowd

Im not trying to diss, this is not meant to be about,

how the single people are quiet, and the cuffed ones are loud

Its funny how relationships cause more

But do not date TOO much cuz youll look like a whore

90210 (Clean Version Edit) Wale

90210

[Chorus]
And she throws up whatever she eats
She leave the bathroom wit a nose bleed
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)
She live her whole life like tv
And she would do anything for everything
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)

[Verse 1]
Ms. Rodeo, tell me where your day go
Part-time waitress she really wanna make it
In the "City of Lights", it's hard to see clear
She don't really care about anyone advice
Nothing here's real, and everyone's alike
Cause everyone dreams of the millionaire's life
She barely eats at all, if she do she eats light
Indulging a meal when a toilets in sight
Expose those fries, can't hold those down
To be seven pounds, you must release several pounds
This is Heaven on Hell
This is how she wanna live
She ain't really trippin', she's on Beverly Hills

[Chorus]
And she throws up whatever she eats
She leave the bathroom wit a nose bleed
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)
She live her whole life like tv
And she would do anything for everything
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)

[Verse 2]
Just another day out in Beverly Hills
She sing, model, and dance, but can't sit still
Believing the screens or anything there
But reality shows ain't real
So pretentious with no potential
She goes to catch up, although her rents up
In her defense-she part of the crowd
She gonna borrow some money
So she can party at Chows
It's apart of her goal
It's all she knows
Graduated from rosay, addicted to blow
Addicted to stardom, a wish to blow
So she kisses the stars
And gives them a blow
After every show, a dream she hold
Inhibition is gone, she just wanna be known
She wanna be know, she just wanna be known
Pulling down her skirt
"I never done this before", Nah

[Chorus]
And she throws up whatever she eats
She leave the bathroom wit a nose bleed
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)
She live her whole life like tv
And she would do anything for everything
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)

[Verse 3]
You know big-breast girls
Never ever pay rent
They meet the Rich Boys
Throw D's on that B****
Lease on The Whip
Beach on the weekend
Hotel suite, room keys is a gift
Dream of the fame or a ring on her finger
Now you just a whore to the male entertainers
Word spreads fast that your knees spread quick
The sun's always out
But It's clouds over here
Look, cocaine addiction, apartment eviction
To add to the list of Beverly Hills victims
Hold on you can see my vision
Next to you look down on a n****

[Chorus]
And she throws up whatever she eats
She leave the bathroom wit a nose bleed
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)
She live her whole life like tv
And she do anything for everything
Regular girl, Celebrity dreams
She is...(90210)

90210

Wale created the song 90210 a few years ago to bring attention to the self indulgent women who strive to be females that they see on television and in media. These simple minded women have been brainwashed. It is clear to see that they cannot think for themselves and are used to leaning upon other peoples judgement and opinions to create their own reality. This song helps show the stupidity that these young women commit just so that they can "live their whole life like TV".... "a regular girl with celebrity dreams." There is a stigma that we all want to be a "somebody", and we base that on the successes of others. If we were to live our lives without constantly comparing ourselves to other people, I'm sure we will be more satisfied with our lives, more content with the role that we serve in this world. Creativity would be abundant, and lives will have more purpose, instead of being a statistic. The best way to live your life, is to unconcern yourself with other peoples lives.

Do What You love

Tuesday, Dec. 31st 2013 at 11:45pm

Across The Globe

Do what you want to do. Forget what is considered right, forget what is considered wrong. Do what YOU love. If you think someone will dislike what you do even better! You are begining to break free of the bindings that hold us down. The bindings of being subject to rules and judgement. You are free to make your own mind, and do what you want. You have power, use it!

The world is filled with dystopia (Mini-Dystopias)

As you can see, our world is controlled by the media, and through the media, we are told by major corporations what to wear, eat, drink, drive, listen to, and almost every other aspect of our lives. The largest thing that has taken over the world are smart phones. Smart phones have taken over the majority of the population. Everyone from young people to old guys in their 80's using smart phones. This is a trend that has spread from just the young people to virtually everyone. It has transcended from a nice commodity, and changed to something that is considered "necessary".
