Sheep being sheep.
Funny how a heavenly father can abandon his kids and be seen as an almighty, loving, merciful, and powerful God, and never actually be there, talk to anyone, or seem to care at all, yet human fathers who do the same thing or fall short in any way are considered scum of the earth.
Who are we?
I know all of you have no problem putting into words what each decade was all about, but what can you say about your own? Have you put any thought into what your generation stands for? Or simply what’s wrong in the world? I may see it differently than you, or maybe you’ll feel the same way as I do.
For example; the 50s was about family values and television reflecting every one of them, the 60s was about finding yourself and standing up for yourself, even if all you wanted to be was free to be a bum. The 70s was about bringing back the values, but with the cool new vibe that the 60s spawned. The 80s was about the future, and embracing indulgence. Being truly different until we all looked the same. The 90s was about calming down and looking back on the past with novelty and wishing our lives weren’t so PG-13. The new millennium was a big bang for ideas and people were no longer afraid of change, conflict, or law. And now, I think we’re in a decade that honors and appreciates every lesson we’ve learned in the past 60 years and beyond. We’re the decade that isn’t trying to move forward, but perfect the past. To hold onto the things that made us who we are; our childhoods, our parents’ childhoods, and those of our own children as well. Face it, we’re all fucking hipsters. It’s not a style, it’s a global state of mind. We’ve made a lifestyle out of being interesting, and holding onto perennial past-times that may or may not have been a part of our pasts. It’s the gesture of respect to our elders that they’ve been begging us for their entire lives.
Be thankful though, because for once, intelligence, cleverness, morality, fairness, tolerance, and the balls to be whatever religion, sex, sexuality, or political standing that we want, at any age, at any event, in any school, in any workplace, and in front of whomever we choose… is cool.
Why are dumb trends still in existence?
Why is scene/straight-edge even an option still? Why are people judging each other based on the fact that at one point they said they were straightedge? It’s just religion all over again. “He’s a good guy, unless he says he’s a christian, because now you have standards to judge him against.” Replace “Christian” with “Straight-edge” and you’ve got yourselves yet another retarded double-standard that society created for itself to make themselves feel better than their enemies. Me? I’m a guy who does/says/wears/believes, and listens to whatever I want. That makes me HUMAN, and happy that I don’t have to live by rules set by some rebels in the 90’s that ironically, got tired of following rules.
