(Yah its got em)
by Rafael Zipin
We live in an age of so many “options” that
we forget that we have or need rights.
Under the stress and confusion of trying to
figure out what color skin we want for our new mobile phone, what kind
of face cream will make wrinkles take a vacation for another five years,
and which celebrity we want to fuck the most, we misinterpret our
options as freedoms. It’s a semantical war that we have all but lost.
Our inability as humans to focus is the reason why this is possible. It
is why we are constantly being duped and then consoled easily even after
realizing it, but alas it is also why we can find our existence so
tolerable. This scramble for more options is part of our ridiculous
battle with ourselves and our neighbors to find an identity, to fool
ourselves into thinking if there’s enough combo meals at the McDonalds
we can have one all to ourselves and that will help us to be more of an
“individual.” The average American life is nothing more than a
distraction from actually having to spend any time alone with ourselves.
The “individual” is the lie we have been sold. Its what allows them to
separate us from them, and us from ourselves….So we can only look at
each other and see the differences, So we can know that the enemy is not
like us, So that we may never know what it is that we truly desire.
Our Government doesn’t need to sell
us their agenda, they simply just need to have one…that’s become enough.
When will they pile our bodies high
enough to get to heaven? We are the base for them to stand on, we are
the foundation for everything we hate. We dream no more, We live under a
god we will never know as part of a sacrifice we will never fully
This is our only destiny….until we find out
who we really our. Scared of death, Scared of life….what is the real
option? Until things change when I see you out on the street I consider
you my enemy, your lifestyle my disease, and your individuality just a
giant corporate shopping cart.
