Here Is what I believe it is, It is a spirit of Uncaring. Which We all have in our lives as a whole. What we do care about are the things that effect us about the ongoing comfort of our daily lives. If it does not effect us than it Holds no interest to us and if captures our interest it is fleeting. We see others struggle and injustice as pertaining only too them But this Is far removed from the truth, If any man on the face of this planet in any way faces injustice or oppression he does not face it alone, the reason that war continues is because we allow it. everyone says oh wouldn’t it be great if the had a war and no one showed up, when we should say the next time they start a war we are all showing up and we are going to stop these war mongering, corporate interest, and powers that be from using or young men and women as implements of there misguided policies. yes because we truly live in fear and don’t want their guns turned on us we allow them to be turned on others. To allow men and governments to continue to war in your name is to live in apathy.
When Men for small infractions of the law of the land are allowed to be drug into the middle of the street and beaten to death like the young Mr. Kelly Thomas of Fullerton California, and we only react by saying how horrible is this and not as a people rage to the point of coming together and demanding a now justice for the men responsible simply because they are police. This is apathy
And It will continue in the direction it is going in this world because of our apathy, before I go any further I would like for the sake of clarity give the Definition of apathy given by our dictionary, Lack of interest or concern, especially regarding matters of general importance or appeal; indifference.
Wow Lack of interest or concern, “especially regarding matters of General importance". that means things that apply to everyone, not just you but all of us we deceive ourselves in many ways so that to us things don’t seem to apply to us all in the above mentioned case of point, Men and women all over the world where outraged that a homeless man could be beaten to death on our streets, and that interest waned in us as a whole. we were able to say ok great they are going to investigate this matter. and for us that is enough, this is apathy. when the reality of it is we as A whole should have showed up on the steps of the Fullerton police dept. and said enough of your criminal tactics of oppression. If you do not deliver these oppressors up too us to be imprisoned we will move all of you out of this building by force. we do not because Yes Apathy.
As A Christian I believe in turning the other cheek, I believe we must suffer much in our lives and not resort to any form of violence as pertaining to ourselves. I also believe that even too the point of death we must be willing to sacrifice of ourselves for others. In matters of Humanity this being Oppression, injustice, Tyranny.
Society as a whole has made great advances in technology and having fuller lives yes. But when pertaining to Humanity we have advanced not at all. The availability of this fullness not being for all but for the few. We are failing as Humanity because of Apathy. I Myself see things differently Maybe because Of my status in life I am on the fringe of society one of as many would call the dregs of. I am homeless and live with no desire too be a part of a failing system in which some are valued more than others, where Men are judged merely by their intrinsic value. If you have a 2 car garage and a 100k home you are worth more than A man that has only a tent and a fire to cook on, we place value on men because of there possessions and not there moral integrity or their honor. Idealist are never valued as men or women who should be admired and idolized we rather idolize men and women whom have obtained great wealth with little effort.
Explaining Why a dairy farmer cant afford new boots and a baseball player makes millions a year? Hmmm
It is far easier for a child to get a scholarship for shooting a good jump shot than his academic achievement, technology is funded in the direction it is for comfort and entertainment rather than social stability as a whole. As long as we can Keep people comfortable to a acceptable degree daily and they have a certain degree of this comfort they will remain Apathetic! But at what point do we say stop this madness, we don’t because truly most of the madness doesn’t pertain too us and until it does we stand idly by watching, and saying thank God that could never happen to me.
I am sorry for this post, but I it stems from a great sadness, in that I have for Most of my life been apathetic. Please forgive me all of you whom I failed as my fellow man your oppression and tyranny are a direct result of my actions.
