Humanity has failed completely

I have been thinking a lot recently about the world around me. Maybe I have a unique perspective, or maybe I am just disgusted by what i see. I thought id share this unique perspective with DP and see what you think.

From a grand perspective at this point I have come to the final conclusion that humanity as a whole has completely failed. (with a few exceptions here and there).

To better explain how I came to this conclusion let me submit the following fact:

It is a basic human essential to:

a. Eat
b. Be clothed
c. Be sheltered from the elements
d. Be able to provide for ones offspring

To deny any human any one of these items for any extended period of time is to kill them.

Now lets consider our world, more specifically our country. We have evolved a system where to obtain ANY of the above human essentials it requires monetary payment for them. There are exceptions to this rule but generally the american way is to get a job in order to "provide or sustain".

Gone mostly are the days where you can willfully (without a permit, license, or allowance) hunt your own food, sheer a sheep and make your own clothing or create your own dwelling for shelter.

Couple this with the concept that the most accepted way to make an income and obtain basic essentials mean you need "gainful employment". Not to say there are not other ways but generally now days if you want to provide a life, not of utter poverty you will most likely need to work. And with restrictions the way they are starting a small business is hard to say the least (if not impossible for someone currently impoverished)

I am not sure the exact figures in percentage but just about every position I have applied for performs a comprehensive criminal background check. And most if not all will deny you if you have a criminal history on file.

In our country today there are hundreds of thousands of laws on the books. 88,000 added last year alone, not to mention we have by far the largest population of incarcerated people in the world. This information does not include the number of people with a previous criminal history. Generally speaking the number of people who have ever been in trouble with the "law" is staggering.

As we increase the number of "Social" crimes we also increase the number of criminals being prosecuted. As such we increase the number of people with a criminal history.

Due to the current track trace, database etc life. We also increase the number of people who cannot find decent income based on their criminal history.

In sum we are denying large portions of humanity the very basic essentials in life by simply calling them a criminal in a database somewhere.

How can a world of deny its people basic essentials based on set of laws or rules that may or may not even be just. How can we turn our backs on food clothing and shelter for those who need it based sheerly on the notion that they broke a social law?

Before judging I ask you to look at the laws on the books today and tell me how many felonies you have committed today without even knowing about it. There were some great writeups about this recently which some lawyers did to show that most people commit 3 felonies a day without even knowing it.

If there is a god I would imagine he would be appalled at our lack of integrity, morals, and most of all our lack of humanity. Our willingness to dictate others basic human needs based on mob rule mentality and our utter lack of compassion for others in the world.

I would imagine that any intelligent being out there in the universe would see this world for the crap that it is and shun us based on our own ignorance and stupidity.

What are your thoughts?

No

Humans in chains should not be accused.

What a strange species, humans

So infantile, obsessed with importance and status in everything.

Individuals with no conscience or empathy for others, aggressively pursue social positions that grant importance and status through force, do so by pretending that they are what they are not.

Through manipulation and subterfuge, deception, bribery, blackmail and murder - either personally or by proxy - they spend every waking moment on that quest for always more.

They find those that are willing - through deep pathological need to be led, dominated, and feel the 'safety of the herd' - to aid and abet them in their quest for godhood on earth.

And the rest of the population falls for it over, and over, and over again throughout the centuries.

That's the root imo. What you're saying here is a symptom.

Life is our only revenge

The Gnome of Death presides, it's true.
We watch from a corner, overinformed and underknowleged,
while our generals hump the planet
and our priests bless them on their way
(call it the way of the cross),
while lizard kings do a death-grip waltz
on the bones of the same dance done before
and the tribal legions raise their banners
one against the other,
while the garbage and the bones collect waist-deep
around the men who proclaim each absurd war holy.

And informed sources said today
that God is on our side.
Although the Lord was not around to comment,
Death had this to say:
"Kiss my rumpled ass and sing 'Power!'
There are no fair fights
and only I can save you from love gone wrong."
(It is stylish to despair).

Still, imagination holds out
for what isn't, and never was,
but might, some say, come to be.
It's a fool's vision perhaps,
but they have found it in caves, on ruined walls,
and in the notebooks of young dead poets.
Dumb dreams
of the artist depicting a planet in love with itself,
where the Gnome is silly for a time.
Where men can tweak his beard
and dare to be naked and vulnerable,
loving and inefficient,
and without the borrowed power of Death over one another.

It's true the Gnome has his way over us in the end;
the game isn't fair, it just is.
Still, there's no reason to serve the dark bastard,
to run his errands for him,
to extend a soulless kingdom while we have the light.
For if death is his threat,
life is our only revenge.
Sing: "Kiss your own dead ass and be damned, Death.
There are no real fights among men,
and no one needs saving from love."
