Good day everybody.
tl;dr: What are we doing? What are the achievements that we, as a species, wish to accomplish?
War, which doesn't have to be.
Hunger, even though there is more than enough food being produced daily for everybody.
Plastic in our bodies, in our oceans.
Many breath polluted air.
Insects are dying.
Animal species going extinct.
GMO's and monocultures as crops.
Meat production is, well as the name already suggests, the production of meat. No respect for the animals, just born to be eaten.
Fucking climate change. Droughts and fires everywhere and at the same time extreme Winds and Rain in other regions.
Oceans heating up, more algae and jellyfish while we still overfish as if everything is still fine 'n dandy.
The internet, which I once considered as our greatest achievement, has been converted into another product. Sure, an internet connection has always cost something, things were being bought, but today? Algorithms on major platforms keeping many in their bubble, melting their brains with "entertainment" and blasted with ads. Said platforms are being censored more each day while the ones that have not jet succumbed are nothing but places to insult each other with foul language.
Countries/Religions/Cultures that just can't follow the human rights.
Writing this on a machine which cost rare metals, running electricity.
I guess our advanced medicine is kinda nice.
Oh and toilets maybe?
But why are we doing this?
No matter how big my TV or phone is and no matter how much I allow my brain to be melted by stupid series/movies/videos, it doesn't change the fact that I have problems sleeping because it is to hot. I don't like sunny days anymore, they're to hot.
I am surprised by insects other than moskitos.
Degenerates driving their stupid ass muscle cars/suv's n shit just to show off their small wiener.
No matter if it's a democratic, authoritarian or religious country, only a few nations have an overall happy population.
Do you guys think it is understandable if I just want to be high for the rest of my life and escape this reality?
Or just piss off into whats left of the woods, shit into a hole and try to survive eating berries n shit, hoping they wont kill me?
Our very existence, everyone of us, has a negative impact to this beautiful world with all its wonders. We truly are a virus for mother earth.
But do we at least have a good reason? A goal? Something to be proud of?
Please give me hope. Tell me that I just can't see something actually good that we have done.
I know this could have been posted on /r/collapse but whatever...
I wish yall a happy continued existence fellow humans.
