So today I was exploring Facebook (a total waste of time, as per usual, but hey, I’m still addicted to it, go figure), and I came across the fifty-millionth post of the day that involves some sort of political or social controversy.
OH. MY. FUCKING. GOSH.
Okay, I am SO sick of people constantly discussing these topics that are probably too complex for them to handle, much less for them to have any authority on whatsoever!!! They just post and post and post away thinking that’s how they’re going to change the world, WELL NEWS FLASH BUDS, THAT’S NOT THE WAY!!!!!
Let me just remind everyone that 70% (YES, SEVENTY PERCENT) of the world population doesn’t even have internet!!! Much less Facebook!!!!!!
So no, they don’t give a flying fart in space that you’re discussing politics like a freaking maniac on your Facebook timeline!!!
Those people in the pictures you share who are living in ridiculous and completely inhumane conditions don’t give a damn about what you think you know! They’re too busy TRYING TO SURVIVE!!!! They probably don’t even know what the things you’re talking about are; I know that’s harsh, and I’m not calling them stupid or anything, they just don’t even have food, much less a quality education!!!!!! SO STOP!
Not only people on Facebook, but politicians, scholars and just the media in general keep wasting time discussing topics that have no right or wrong answer (people will always have different points of view, GET THE FUCK OVER IT) when really finding answers will lead us nowhere!
There are BILLIONS of people out there DESPERATE for help; they don’t care what people believe in, they just want some long-needed attention. THEY DON’T NEED THEORIES. THEY NEED SOMETHING TO BE DONE. GOD. DAMMIT. YOU CAN DISCUSS YOUR ASSES OFF AFTER YOU SAVE THEM. BUT FOR NOW, THAT’S IT, THEY NEED TO BE SAVED.
So maybe people should stop discussing so much and showing off how “smart” they are and how “politically engaged” they are. If you want to be an activist so badly, THEN START DOING SOMETHING! I assure you’ll have your hands full to such an extent that you won’t even have time to post your thoughts on Facebook!
I’m not saying “don’t give a crap about ideologies.” Ideologies are important, yes. Political engagement is important, yes. But just don’t make a fool of yourself! Stop posting things you don’t even understand and basing entire arguments off of doubtful articles you read on your friend’s friend’s friend’s friend’s wall! Start actually opening your eyes to the world around you, get out of the room, LIVE the world outside of the computer screen and THEN, ONLY THEN, form an opinion.
