If you could go back, if you could forget, all of it, de-programme yourself to know none of this, to know only what they want you to know, only what you were meant to know, only, let’s face it, what you need to know, life would be so much easier, nicer, so much calmer.
I can make it happen. Imagine that for a moment. You would fit in, be so much more acceptable, so much more reasonable, so much more, likeable. You could have what I have, but, no, you have to keep thinking. Is it so necessary?? You always had to keep questioning, that something inside that would not let you be, and you, you just had to listen; you had to keep pushing, couldn’t just go with the flow. Couldn’t let things be.
So look where it’s got you? Who’s the better off?? Are you happy? Are you healthy, wealthy and comfortable? No? Well, that’s what it gets you, this searching and questioning, this understanding and knowledge, all this caring and imagination; a great big pain in the arse, that’s all!!!!! A load of hassle and strife, a whole load of problems and pains you don’t need. Wouldn’t it be easier to just let it go?? Lighten the load?? Don’t tell me you haven’t thought about it…..going back?? Is it really worth it? I only want to help you.
Think of the relief, think of how different life would be, how much simpler? Pleasanter?? You could be like me!! You could have what I have, I want that for you. Let me make it happen. Let me heal you, let me take away all this chaos inside you, there’s no need to endure this….sickness; let me make it go away?? What do you say??? You only have to agree…..I’m waiting for you to agree.
We’re all waiting for you to agree.
Think, you could wake up a new person, fresh and alive, rid of all this burden, start again, wiped clean, innocent, and enjoy life, free…… Let it all go, why trouble yourself, why torment yourself??? Why make life difficult?? It doesn’t need to be this way.
I can make it all stop.
I have the solution, right here.
Think about it; the freedom to not think. Is that such a bad thing? You wouldn’t even notice. We only want you to be happy. It’s only because we care.
Why fight something you can never win??
What difference does it make????
What do you say?????………………….

Oh, but to be oblivious, carefree; fat, dumb, and happy, as they say — as the masses are. Oh, if only it were possible not to know, I’d still choose to know. I’m proud of what I am, the awareness that seeks more no matter the agony. The pain gives initiative to a meaningful existence; one not given to self-indulgence and the trivialities of the mindless. If not for the possession of awareness, then what’s the point of life? To waste away in insensibility, as do the dregs. No. Better to remain angry and discontented and rebellious of oppression and the crimes of authority than to live in a fetid sac of impervious self-concern. We are the champions; the evolved of our species, you and I and those of like mind. To hell with the rest. Great post!
I couldn’t have put it any better, you just expressed the argument so well, exactly my point, I particularly like ‘a fetid sac of impervious self-concern.’ Wonderful description, I have hung on to that, it keeps on making me smile, I might have to borrow that, it says it all. And I agree totally, to hell with the rest! Thanks for reading and leaving such a wonderfully expressed response!!!
I’d rather be dead for real instead of brain dead and still walking around.
Me too. I’ve always said to people if I lose it, switch me off!!
A splendid post indeed, my friend. You have quite accurately reported the pulsing demand to get with the program — one that runs like a computer code for android mentalities. Robots driven by computer code that seeks to identify anything that deviates from the expected, and to isolate those identified as defiant.
Our next holiday, Independence Day, is anything but a call to think independently. Rather it’s a reminder to regurgitate the required and to distrust anyone who questions *any* of it. Celebrations follow a familiar (safe) set of behaviors that mimic the previous holiday, Memorial Day is anything but a call to remember, it’s a call to conform.
Marketers profit by convincing consumers that repeated slogans originate independently. The trick is to get each consumer to think that she is the one doing the thinking, that they came up with the idea of tossing Hot Pockets into their grocery carts on their own.
“ What do you say?????………………….” very much suggests flatlining. Quite effectively lets you know what happens to resistance — you may as well be a Borg.
Thanks much for this post!
Thanks for reading and such a great reply. It’s amazing isn’t it what people fall for, believing it is all coming from their own decisons and choices, they cannot see how manipulated they are. I totally agree about so called ‘holiday’ celebrations, it is just a call to conform, exactly, I hate every holiday now, it is a trial, it just grinds me down, seeing the amount of false ‘celebration’ going on, at the expense of other beings misery and suffering. The mindless repetition of manufactured bullshit and no-one questions, no-one understands and you are the one who gets the flack for being a ‘spoil-sport’, for not ‘joining in’. Thanks for such generous comments, I appreciate them a lot.
Indeed, I’ve been called a spoil-sport too, but now I wear it as a badge of honor. It’s wonderful to encounter fellow travelers on the internet who don’t participate in a holiday celebration because it relies upon endless slaughter of fellow sentient-beings and mindless use of non-renewable resources, plastic crap for decorations and gifts that end up in a landfill to poison the planet.
Far from joy but close to sorrow.
‘Badge of honor’, I like that, and I feel that way too.
I can’t bear any of it, the ‘holiday celebrations’ and it so good to find people who feel the same, becasue they are sadly lacking round here!!
